    A lot of people are mentioning they are having problems with spitter ghuls spawning. I tried for a good hour trying to get the spitters to spawn with no luck.

    I read in a different forum that if you hard reset your console it will work. They were right! I rebooted my box and now spitter ghuls everywhere! The attached video shows an excellent spot to get this cheeve. I take no credit for the video and only added it for visual aid. I hope this helps!

    Current FutureFor me it wasn't an issue of the Spitters not showing up, it was either: hard to get a combo going to trigger the wraith flash without killing the Spitter, or my Caragor would die before I could get the Graug. Just in case, I dominated 7 Caragors when going for the Spitter; I had 1 left by the time I was able to dominate it.

    DillionDayI think they fixed it when the last DLC came out. A buddy of mine said he had no issues with spitters as well.

    TheBigBBI did this right after the mission where I learned to dominate the Ghuls, because after the mission it had me stuck with a host of ghuls already. Right to the south was a Graug and a Caragath.

    This solution may very much be YMMV, however the game basically served this up for me on a plate and it was easy to do.

    When you're battling the final Warchief, he will disappear and you'll leave the cave to find him outside. After Shadow Striking over to him you begin combat again. During this combat, lots of Ghuls show up and it's very easy to brand a bunch of these by using cn_X+cn_Y when your combo is red. You'll probably struggle to even defeat the Warchief without doing this. Ideally you'll brand a Spitter Ghul or two during this.

    Now I don't know if the following was scripted or not, and so you may not experience this, but as the fight continued, both Caragaths and a Graug ran into join the battle. At that point it was simply a case of Shadow Branding both of them, and achievement unlocked. You can Shadow Brand by cn_LT then cn_A on both targets. I'd recommend doing the Caragath first, then the Graug, as you don't have to dismount first. If necessary, then just look for a Spitter Ghul if you still don't have one branded. The Graug should stay alive for a while, and you could ideally ride the Caragath round looking for a Ghul if you still need one.

    LockieIf you miss the Graug here, there are two side missions that involve Graugs which you get to keep after completing them. By having that Graug I just had to find the Caragath and Ghul nest to get the achievement. smile

    TheUtmostLegendThis is how I got it. I tried doing it outside of this mission and couldn't find a graug to complete it. Thanks!

    Do this after you kill all 5 beast master warcheifs.

    At the bottom middle of the map youll see a town with 2 bridges going over a river. You want to go to the lower right bridge.

    Where tge bridge ends at the town, youll see a sack hanging that you can shoot to attract a wretched gruag. Youll want to shoot it and attract a gruag and shadow mount it. Then find a carageth(they are all over the place, use vision to find one) and shadow mount it.

    Lastly, to the north of the bridge is a ghul mount which you can shoot to find them. Use x and y with 5x multiplier to dominate them. If you cant find the mount than just run around with vision until you see one.

    I suggest getting ghuls last because they die really fast.

    WebDevil 666Great guide but the negatives are due to the poor spelling. Fix it and I dare say this solution would be top.
