    For this achievement you have to clear all caves in Cyrodiil. It can be a bit tricky and time consuming to clear all 18 caves because you have to kill all bosses in the caves to clear the cave. The spawn rate of the bosses can be terrible too.

    Here some tips to get the achievement a bit faster:

    - Only one boss spawns at a time.

    - Loot everything off a boss's corpse so that it will disappear because even it's body seems to delay the other bosses spawning.

    - The bosses do not spawn in any particular order. For example if you are in a cave with 3 bosses you can kill the first two bosses a few times before the last one spawns.

    Here is a screenshot of Cyrodiil with all the cave locations:

    For each cave you have to kill several bosses. I will post below what bosses you have to kill in each cave.

    Tostiee's guide is extremely thorough, I just have a few more tips that might save some time.

    The caves are also PvE areas, which means you might face players from other factions who can kill you or the boss you're hunting. I recommend playing in a campaign that has as few players from enemy factions as possible in it to minimize interruptions.

    Only 1 boss will be active at a time, and their respawns occur exactly every 10 minutes. On top of that, they do not spawn in a particular order. For example, if you are in a 2 boss cave, it's possible for only 1 boss to spawn multiple times in a row. I personally had to kill the boss Endare in Red Ruby Cave 8 times in a row before the other boss Zandur spawned. If you just cannot get a boss to spawn, try delving some other caves and returning later, I've had better luck spawning after leaving a cave for awhile.

    Toadstool Hollows is an exception to the 1 active boss rule. There are 3 bosses active at once. It also has the most bosses, at 5.

    There is going to be a LOT of waiting around between boss fights. I recommend setting a 10 minute timer after you loot a bosses corpse, and doing something else for the 10 minute wait ahead. Then check all the boss zones until you find the active boss. Rinse and repeat about 100 or so times and this 10 gamerscore is yours! Good (spawn) luck!
