"Heavy Rival" Achievement Bugged

Got credit twice for this achievement then it stopped counting. Definitely beating Cinder at killing things and definitely getting credit for the event but the achievement won't progress any further.

    Only procs if you kill 15 before clearing the other mobs and tank starts going again. Says something like bring the best out in you not just winning I guess

    It seems bugged some time. I killed >15 enemies, i said "you have lost", and no progression in achievement.

    Out of curiosity, for those having issues with it not progressing, are you trying to progress the story step as well?

    Last night I was doing the instance on another character and noticed that the kills weren’t progressing as well as the achievement mentioned in this thread. That character was one that hasn’t done the instance before and I was progressing the story with. It could very well all be a coincidence but I thought that I would ask. I could have sworn that both were progressing on my other character that has already gone through the story.

    Yup bugged, did ton of runs, killing tar elementals, skelks, no progression.
    It counts if you kill 15 foes, should be changed to "if we kill more than her". There is several other things happening in same time like clearing the path.

    Yeah sometimes you don't even have time to reach the zones, depends of groups :/

    Yeah the thing is badly coded, if the icebroods/dwarves are killed rapidly, cinder trials is aborted, shouldn't be the case, we should stay until cynder timer is up. Increase time trial limit if needed.

  • The issue I often have is the area is cleared to fast so the tank moves past the events giving no time to kill them. the event ends early making progression impossible.

  • Same issue here. I tried pleading with people to slow their dps on the things blocking the tank's path, but was met with "Get it another time." Basically I need 2-3 friends to come with me to do the achievement which is ridiculous. If you get gold, it should progress.

    For what it's worth, I had this happen once with The Spotter achievement as well. Vishen wasn't done yet for some reason but the tank moved on, giving me a gold on the event but no progression. Fortunately you can get that one at the start, but Heavy Rival can ONLY be done on the path. Sucks.
