Chasing Tales Issues [Merged]

There were three different threads about Chasing Tales, so I'm going to merge them into this thread to keep the conversations consolidated and allow for a review by the devs.

    I cannot seem to progress in the 2nd and 3rd chasing tales for the axe collection where you have to "slay four enemies sequentially within 20 seconds of one another" and "while at 10% total health or less, slay five opponents in 5 minutes"

    Is anyone else experiencing this aswell? I tried everything and nothing seems to work.

    I'm not sure how I keep getting bugs, with this sort of collections -.- I also happend to be one of those in last LW update with the heavy armor bug...

    Hope we won't have to wait 2 weeks for a potentiel fix :)

  • I can't get these either.

    ~~With #2 worked no problem, #3 seems to be bugged and wont progress. Tried it a bunch of different ways and different maps.

    Also having any indication of the progress would be nice for example if you're 1/5 etc. ~~

    Edit: It worked in the thunderhead keep area with the weapon equipped.

  • Been trying today, still no progress on #2, killed so many mobs within a 20s window. Even been using the axe.

  • I can say that I've killed well over 5 enemies while very much under 10% health, while holding the dragonsblood axe, while in the thunderhead peaks area, and have not gotten the respective achievement. This is either a very specific thing to get, or is bugged and is not registering. Also, I got the achievement for killing 30 enemies on the map after only killing about 6. So, I'm betting bugged achievement. But the kill enemies while under 10% health is not as easy as it looks and would appreciate if it could be looked at and fixed.

    Hiho,

    I killed nearly 100 enemys and it dont count. I am an Engi and try not to change in my holo form or change my weapons. Anyone else with my problem to get the first atchievement with the rifle?

    Bye Madjoh

    Which enemies did you try to kill?

  • Mostly branded

    On the Thunderpeaks map? I’m just trying to make sure.

    Are you using kits instead of the rifle?

    I killed now 50 spiders in the Thunderpeak alone. No reward. I never change my weapon, no kits or no holo. Maybe I should try this on another Char. Thief or Warrior. Thx for the help.

  • Ayrilana.1396Ayrilana.1396 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Afflict 30 enemies with vulnerability while wielding a rifle.

    Defeat 30 enemies while wielding a rifle in Thunderhead Peaks.

    Defeat 10 enemies with a rifle in Thunderhead Peaks without taking damage.

    Maybe they have to be done in order? I haven’t started these yet as I’m just saving up the map currency and jewels to do them all at once.

  • I got this two in one South Meta Event. Nearly at the same time.

    Afflict 20 enemies with vulnerability while wielding a rifle.
    Defeat 10 enemies with a rifle in Thunderhead Peaks without taking damage.

    But the third didnt pop up.

  • With the Sniper also no atchievement. Than I start with the pistol instead.

  • After hours of running around Thunderhead Peaks I randomly got credit for stage 2, leaving me with stage 3 : kill a bunch of enemies while I have less than 10% hp left. This is insanely frustrating since most level 80 mobs do more than 10% of my hp in one hit and, it seems based on previous achievements and other posts that most of the time the achievement doesn't even register successful kills. Plus it isn't clear if you need to be in Thunderhead Peaks or not, or if you need to use the axe, or an axe or what?

  • Loki.4871Loki.4871 Member ✭✭

    I'll chip in with the 'I'm having real trouble triggering this, assuming it's not just bugged' crowd. It feels like it's one of the good idea in theory ideas; if you're doing this you need to hope there's no-one nearby to help you, god help you if there's a guardian who decides to help and is all-round extremely punishing.

  • Moi.5013Moi.5013 Member ✭✭

    I did the 3 separate tasks in the journal; Storms Eye, locus of power and torrent of magic but in the achievement of asaliea the channeler only the first 2 deeds are checked off and then the top one of making the exotic focus is checked. Deed 3 does not have a check mark and I'm not sure how to advance this further as there are no other chasing tales achievements in my journal so I don't know what deed 3 could be especially since I did 3 separate mini achievements for it already. Is there something I am missing here? Has anyone completed this one?

  • Moi.5013Moi.5013 Member ✭✭

    Does killing them in downed state count? Might be a good way to get it if it works? I started on the focus and that one appears bugged as well, I did all 3 mini achievements but only 2 seem to have counted :(

    I've finished the Chasing Tales: Harkon Hakson the Maelstrom today, so they're not bugged.
    For the Chasing Tales: Enduring Hatred just do a meta and wield an axe and it should be done.
    For Chasing Tales: Like a Wounded Beast, someone posted on reddit an easy way to do it and it works:

    • Use a necromancer
    • Use corruption skills to lower your health to below 10%
    • Activate Shroud and kill stuff fast
      South of the heart in the Grotto, there are some rooms with spiders. At the back end of the room there are several spider hatchlings (4 of them I think). Great spot to do it since the spiders don't have any dangerous attack and are easily kited.

    Edit: The Chasing Tales: Asaliea the Channeler cannot be completed at the moment. If you look on the wiki you'll notice both Chasing Tales: Storm's Eye and Chasing Tales: Torrent of Magic achievements give you the same reward: Chasing Tales: Storm's Eye. And since I imagine the main achievement needs the Chasing Tales: Torrent of Magic reward to check the 3rd deed, it can't be done.

    I have been doing the Chasing the Tales: Mouglon the Watchful (mace) and the deed #3 which is Chasing Tales: Man-at-Arms - Defeat 60 enemies while wielding mace and a shield in Thunderhead Peaks. I thought this was bugged because it never showed how many I had killed. I just did one of the metas and it finally popped for me. It would have been nice to see the progression for that one because I was sure I had gotten over 60 when doing the metas several times before.

    Also I assume the description "wielding mace and a shield' it means you do not have to have that specific exotic dragonsblood mace to accomplish it. I am pretty sure I got the deeds #1 and #2 using The Moot. Since #3 was giving me no indication if I was progressing I switched to the exotic dragonsblood mace and it finally popped. Does anyone know if you have to actually use that mace/weapon vs any other mace/weapon to get these achieves?

  • I tried doing the same thing, and stuck on the same step; no progression for the third deed, even after getting Storm's Eye. I think it might be a universal issue - if you check the wiki, you'll notice a distinct lack of any information about a Heroic Dragonsblood Focus anywhere there.

  • I got stuck at the exact same place. Did all 3 steps but don't get the check mark and cannot progress...

    Yep, same thing here! I think, every or most of the dragonsblood weapons are bugged in some way regarding the progression

  • Same bug here for me aswel.

  • Storm's Eye and Torrent of Magic give the same achievement reward. There is no Torrent of Magic reward so it won't unlock deed #3. Seems like an easy copy and paste mistake to fix, but they probably need to figure out a way to cleanup the flags on your char if you've already gotten both. Bug fix hopefully coming soon.

  • Yep same for me and a for other guildies Chasing Tales;Asaliea teh Channeler not getting credit.

  • My guildie and I are in the same boat

  • Same here. Please fix it, Anet, thanks

    I did the spider thing with the dragon axe at least 15 times, no achievement.
    Same for the 20sec cd; I did meta events, I did spiders, I used a 20sec cd skill, I used a chrono, I change map, repeat, I change character, repeat ... is it 20 sec between each mobs or for all ? repeat ... no achievement .... ragequit.
    This is kitten; at least if we could have a little icon or something to indicate the window or the progress...

  • Gop.8713Gop.8713 Member ✭✭✭

    Buying Chasing Tales: Codd the Cheerful does not complete the Chasing Tales: Guidance achievement, or at least it didn't for me. This is pretty minor since it would only affect players who hadn't already cleared the achievement by purchasing one of the other items, and affected players can still clear the achievement by purchasing another Chasing Tales item. But I didn't see any other posts on it and I felt like it was worth mentioning. Thx :)

    I was wondering about this too and I tried it multiple times. Sadly, it didn’t work either.

  • Same issue here for me.

  • I have now tried this achievement again on the spiders south of the Barracks, on two different classes, and can concretely confirm that his achievement is genuinely bugged or broken. As per other people's suggestion, I killed the veteran spider and it's 4 hatchlings, totaling 5 enemies, while absolutely below 10& health (I was at ~650HP out of ~21,600 max) on my dual axe wielding warrior, and did not get the achievement. I then went on to kill another 6 spiders around the room, all at below 2100HP, all within 5 minutes of the initial kill, now totaling 10 enemies withing 5 minutes and below 10% health, and got no achievement. I swapped to my ranger wielding only an axe and torch, and proceeded to do the same thing at a constant and unbroken ~339 HP, again killing the veteran spider and it's hatchling, and then proceeding around the room killing several other trash mobs. Throughout this whole process I never entered downed state nor did I exit combat or heal above 10%. Thinking it might be because of conditions, I proceeded to use only axe autoattack, with nothing but the one axe equipped as a weapon, with my pet on passive, and again killed the veteran spider, it's minions, and another 4 or 5 spiders nearby, all while at ~174 HP, never once breaking combat. I still do not have the achievement. It is one hundred percent nonfunctional for my account.

    Yeah, I tried the necromancer thing. Had enemies attack me to get under 10% health (was at 25 hp for one group) and killed several groups of enemies in shroud. Should have sufficed for the achievement three times over but did not get it. It's bugged.

    received this response from anet:

    Thank you for contacting Guild Wars 2 Support regarding the "Chasing Tales: Asaliea the Channeler" achievement. We sincerely appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Currently, we are aware of this issue and are going to continue investigating. Unfortunately, we currently do not have an ETA on a solution. Be sure to keep your eyes on any upcoming patch notes for hotfixes! I'm afraid we not able to grant the item or achievement, but we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding while we work this out!

    So wait it out I guess :(

  • Pistol and sword were no bugs. But my rifle ist still bugged. I tried to report the bug, but there is no option for atchievements in the bug report. Where do I need to write it down, when I try to post it?

  • i think the of of the solution is to create a new achievement and replace it if they can't unflage the achievement we got

    I think they have the ability to remove completion for everyone as I want to say they did something similar with a Serpent’s Ire achievement.

  • Hi, This is also happening for me. I have did the metas 3 times and also just went around and killed over the 30 things. Still no achievement.

  • Killed 60-70 enemies in thunderhead peaks on deadeye and didn't get achievement. Seems bugged.

  • Eloc Freidon.5692Eloc Freidon.5692 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Still can't get Enduring Hatred.

  • I think it's because the 3rd deed gives the same item as the 2nd deed.

  • Kelly.7019Kelly.7019 Member ✭✭✭

    I'm gunna have to wait for this one i guess. 1 week? 1 month? kinda need it to finish :(

    Today or tomorrow it seemed like. They mentioned that they had been silent during the monthly forum chat because they were chasing bugs but now they’re available to post again. Makes me think that they resolved a lot of them and it’s now in QA.

    Tuesday if they decide to bundle the fixes with their bi-weekly updates.

  • Question, is it bugged? becouse the kills are not counting for me.

    thx!
    also Focus one is bugged. Can't progress im stuck at 3/5 and it does not show me task 4, so i don't even know what i would have to do.

  • Tired it on warrior also and still doesnt work

  • If you look at the instant-consume "items" that the rifle achievements award to give progress, Chasing Tales: Preemptive Strike (10 kills without taking a hit) and Chasing Tales: Deadly Accuracy (30 kills) both give the item for Deadly Accuracy. I'm guessing this might be the source of the bug. If you completed Preemptive Strike first it incorrectly gives the item for Deadly Accuracy so when you actually complete Deadly Accuracy it probably thinks you already have it or something and doesn't trigger.

    Same here.
    "Chasing Tales: Deadly Accuracy" doesn`t work. I killed around 300 enemies with my rifle during the METAs and on different spots in the new map. I cannot finish the achievment.

  • "Chasing Tales: Deadly Accuracy" doesnt work. I killed more than 300 enemies with my rifle (DEAD EYE) during the METAs and on different spots in the new map. I tried branded, bears, spiders, everything I could find on the new map without switching weapons. Doesnt work. I cannot finish the achievment.

    Two of the achievements award the same item. It’s like the one for the focus only that you can’t complete the achievement.

    Wrote a ticket the same day. I`m curious, how long it will take ´til they fix it.
