    For this achievement you have to unlock the in game achievement General Executioner. You will have to kill all 16 of Molag Bal’s generals that appear at the Dark Anchors. There is a small chance that the Dark Anchor boss is one of the 16 generals of Molag Bal. For this achievement you have to farm a lot of Dark Anchors before you have defeated all of the generals.

    There are 3 Dark Anchors in each zone. The easiest way to get the achievement is to catch up with the spawn direction of the dark anchors. If you are doing this right you will be able to hit every single Dark Anchor in a zone. If you're a high enough level to solo them it will increase the completion time, you can even get ahead of the spawn and have to wait a bit at the next Dark Anchor. The only difference with more players is that it takes longer (as more mobs spawn). It also takes 10 minutes for the Dark Anchors to respawn.

    No generals can spawn in the first major zone of any alliance: Auridon, Glenumbra and Stonefalls, but after that a set of four generals spawn in each different normal zone. In veteran zones or Cyrodiil every general can spawn. (EDIT: Since 1 Tamriel update every general can spawn at every dark anchor)

    The list below shows which zone’s Dark Anchors you will need to farm for a specific general.

    Second zone: Grahtwood, Stormhaven and Deshaan

    - Destroy the Torturers
    - Destroy the Ogrim Brothers
    - Destroy the Dremora Pirate
    - Destroy Traveling Dremora

    Third zone: Greenshade, Rivenspire and Shadowfen

    - Destroy the Daedroth of Kora-Dur
    - Destroy the Ever-Open Eye
    - Destroy the Daedroth General
    - Destroy the Devourer of Souls

    Fourth zone: Malabal Tor, Alik’r Desert, Eastmarch

    - Destroy the Frost Lord
    - Destroy the Storm Lord
    - Destroy the Xivilai Slavemasters
    - Destroy the Seductive Sisters

    Fifth zone: Reaper’s March, Bangkorai and The Rift

    - Destroy the Verkarth Vampire
    - Destroy the Crescent Dremora
    - Destroy the Lich of Mournhold
    - Destroy the Son of Molag Bal

    aj vanzettiGot it. All the locations worked, and it took 157 dolmens.

    SynzWith The One Tamriel update every zone can now spawn any of Molag Bal’s Generals. In addition, achievements from players involved with an anchor are now taken into account when Generals spawn. This is a much easier achievement than before the update.

    erod550If you do the 3 dolmens in Alik'r Desert, you'll eventually get this achievement. There's a zerg running these 24 hours a day so just go there and type "lfdg" in the zone chat and you'll get in a group and after several hours of repeating the 3 dolmens this achievement will come. I never did a dolmen in any other zone and got this achievement without even trying while grinding levels.

    For this achievement you need to kill each of Molag Bal's generals at the Dark Anchors in Tamriel. There are 16 total (listed below) and you can also keep track by going to your in game journal and under the Dark Anchors section will be an in-game achievement conveniently named General Executioner. By highlighting this achievement in your menu you can see a list of all the generals you have killed (which will be highlighted) and the ones you haven't (which will be in light grey)

    Now, any of the generals can spawn at any Dolmen (aka the Dark Anchors). It is completely random if a general spawns or a general daedra spawns so you have to keep grinding.

    There are a total of 3 Dark Anchors in each Zone with 12 in Cyrodiil. Use this link to go to a site that has each dark anchor location with a map of each location if you want to know where the Dark Anchors are in each zone:

    The Generals:
    The Torturers
    Ogrim Brothers
    Dremora Pirate
    Traveling Dremora
    Daedroth of Kora-Dur
    Ever-Open Eye
    Daedroth General
    Devourer of Souls
    Frost Lord
    Storm Lord
    Xivilai Slavemasters
    Seductive Sisters
    Verkarth Vampire
    Crescent Dremora
    Lich of Mournhold
    Son of Molag Bal
