Plop! Achievement

Just in case you feel like jumping off high things: The description for this one (Stonefield, that is) is surprisingly vague. I mean.. I am used to "jump off both the mainland and the island sides of the Sanctum bridge" - which is clear enough.

"Jump from the mountain overhanging the pool of Granite Falls" leaves a lot of room for experimentation.

What you need to do to get the achievement (and survive, incidentally) is to get as close to 4840, 4940 as you can. Up the hill near Fergus Camp, past the Cairn, jump and leap - the usual mountain climbing experience.

If you are doing it right, you end up on a ledge. From the bottom, you're aiming about here:

Aim in a Northeastern direction and move quickly (but on foot and not highly speedboosted - 10% from Avatar of Wind is okay, Eth Agility is probably not) over the edge. Running and jumping are both okay.

If you can see water on both sides (like in the image below) you ended up on the wrong ledge.
