Hidden achievement "Experimentation"

Guys, did anyone get this one? I gathered more than 30 eternal ice nodes but no luck so far... Am I doing something wrong? Or it is bugged?

    That one worked fine for me right off, gathering the nodes in eastern Bjora. Do you have it up in the tracker? Make sure you are in fact not getting credit. I don't think every node drops the collection stuff, but watch your side scroll to see if you're getting the extra thingie, and check your achieves to see if there is any progress.

  • no i don't have it in tracker. It is still hidden from me... I gathered zillion nodes so far :anguished:

  • That may be a good point. I don't have it open yet. Thanks Inculpatus.

    That's when it started working for me.
    You are welcome. :)

    Would be good if wiki would say so. Saying "Gather 30 eternal ices" is a bit misleading...

    You can always edit the article. Or, 'Leave article feedback'. :)

    Oh that makes sense! I happened to pick the staff for my first collection, and the ice gathering wasn't hidden, it was the clue in one of the items to get.

    Doesn't it only open with the Nicabar Steelweaver achievement?

    This.

    Yes, this achievement is not actually that secret. It will unlock the moment one gathers for the Nicabar Steelweaver (staff weapon) weapon collection. This achievement is NOT available before.

    The wiki is a bit misleading here or does not make note of this. The 30 gathered ice refers to 30 singular "hits" with a mining pick, meaning any Eternal Ice mined will usually increase the achievement by 3, the usual amount for each node.
