The Wheel of Misfortune (WoM) is on top of a small plateau in the Desolate Sands act 2. It has an outlined square appearance on the mini-map, spawning either in the north or south (large canyon usually appears in the middle), mostly centered on the map. There's a set of steps at the bottom of the square that lead to the top, a man stands by a lever and says, "My brother Garrett died using this device, use it if you dare." Pull the lever to get 1 of 10 outcomes, 2 of them are dungeons, Fowl Lair and Veiled Treasure. Don't confuse the WoM as the circle with a resplendant chest with dervish guardians or the resplend chest in a spiral bone structure. As a rough estimate, the WoM only spawns 1/5, more frequently in the north. However, the best way to farm this achievement is to only do the south to avoid large numbers of monsters for speed. Use the waypoint to ancient path, not desolate sands, run up the narrow twisting bone path to get the checkpoint at the beginning of the Desol.sands, when the path widens out, run straight up for 2-3 screen lengths, if the square plateau is not there exit game and you start close at saved checkpoint.
