Achievement: Electrophobia

I was recently achievement hunting and doing the last story instance in Thunderhead Keep (Episode 5) for the "Electrophobia." I worked with two others to get it and through a few tries I was able to keep the buff until the last instance where you're crippled.

However, when the instance ended I was not rewarded this achievement.

My question is, like a few other achievements in this story, is it only attainable by the instance host?

    Did you have that story instance as your currently selected chapter in the journal? Also, did the yellow icons appear above your skill bar showing eligibility from the start?

    Whether either are required im not sure, but might be factors

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    You actually get the achievement when Kralk hits 0% on the final battle platform. Not at the end of the instance.
    You should have had a yellow eligibility icon for it upon starting the encounter. You should also be at this part in the story/have set to repeat for achievements to earn it (remember instances tell you if you’re not on your current story, you won’t get achievements if so, regardless if you have the icon).
    There’s also the fact you can’t get Crystal Circuit Racer unless you’re the instance owner, I dunno if this is the case for all achievements in this instance, but wouldn’t be surprised if so.

    Better get a wriggle on.

    You have to be the owner of the instance to get the achievements in the final instance, most likely a bug

    Yes, I completed the whole instance. Yes, I had the buff, however I was not the instance owner.

    This.

    You currently need to be the instance owner. Not sure if this is an oversight or intended to make sure players don't exploit hanging back while others do the instance.

    Probably just an oversight, as players can still hang back and get achievements, they just need to start the instance. /shrug would be nice if challenge achievements were blocked unless solo though (the 15min achievement).
