These three World Event Achievements all work in essentially the same way. In each of the 15 Alliance zones, there are specific locations where one of three random world events can occur. They do not happen every time, and you can get the same one multiple times in a zone, so it can take a while to complete all three of them in each zone. Completing all of them once each in all 15 zones awards you with one of these three achievements. The events are as follows:

Crime Pays[edit]

A merchant appears at a location with a horse. (Often the horse will appear first, so if you see a horse standing around, you might want to wait a few seconds to see if its owner shows up.) You can talk to the merchant, and above the usual option to trade with them, you will be given the option to rob them instead. This option can only be chosen if you have the Fighters Guild Intimidating Presence passive. If you choose to rob them, they will put a backpack on the ground which contains some random loot. (Not gold, despite the achievement's description and much of the associated dialogue.) They will then sit down next to the horse and sulk. If you meet the same merchant again, they will remember you, and you can rob them again, though this does not help with the achievement. You will earn a small amount of experience every time however.

Give to the Poor[edit]

A beggar appears, digging through a bag on the ground. (Often the bag will appear first, along with an icon that floats over the beggar's head which looks just like the icon you see when you have an NPC follower during certain quests.) If you talk to the beggar, they will tell you a small story and ask for some gold. The gold is a level-dependent amount up to 0000006969 Gold. If you give it to them, you'll receive a small amount of experience. Choosing any other dialogue options will cause you to miss the opportunity. If you encounter the same beggar later, they will recognize you, and you can give them gold for experience again, but it will not help with the achievement.


Two people will appear around an unlit campfire and have a brief conversation about the incompetence of one of them to start a fire. (Often the campfire will appear first, so if you see a campfire appear, wait a few seconds for the campers to show up.) You can then activate the campfire to light it. Doing so earns you some experience, and also gives you increased Maximum Stamina for a short time. If you meet the same campers again later, they will recognize you, and you can activate their still-lit fire again to receive the experience and Maximum Stamina boost, but it will not help with the achievement after the first time.
