The Vortex Pinnacle is the level 82-84 five-man wing in the Skywall complex, accessed at [77, 84] via the floating spires off the southeastern Uldum coast, introduced in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Queuing for the Vortex Pinnacle through the Dungeon Finderrequires level 82 and an average item level of 272.
Here the armies of Al'Akir reside, and will not take kindly to any intruders in his elemental plane. The air elementals have entered an unholy alliance with the Worldbreaker, Deathwing and now threaten the denizens of Uldum. It is up to the adventurers to stop the elemental incursion to the ancient land, and the task is uneasy as they have to face the most powerful lieutenants of the Windlord.

This is an old school platform game type achievement in which you have to find and collect 5 hidden objects located throughout the instance. You must find and locate 5 Golden Orbs, of which more than 5 can be found if you hunt hard enough.
The orb locations that I know of are here:
Note that while you need to jump off to collect them, you must make sure that you click on them as you pass them. If you miss clicking them, it does not count as collecting them.
It does not matter who in the party collects the orbs, the whole party will earn the achievement when you collect the 6th orb.
This is another fairly simple achievement to earn as the mechanic that you need to avoid is itself pretty simple. Asaad casts static cling throughout the fight usually shortly after he casts chain lightning. This one second cast gives you at least two ways to avoid the effect.
The first way to avoid the effect it to simply not be on the ground when the spell is cast. If you are not on the ground when the spell goes off you can not be affected by it. This means that simply jumping any time you see static cling being cast will let you avoid being affected.
The second way is to have levitate cast on you at some time before he casts static charge. Because the spell is not cast right after chain lightning a priest sometimes has enough time to get levitate on everyone other than the tank before static cling is cast. This way no one is on the ground and only the tank needs to jump.
This is a per player achievement, so you can earn it even though no one else does. There really is no real reason though that you should not be able to finish this achievement the first time you are in the instance on heroic mode.
