so i didnt get into WvW because we have queue everywhere.

  • i used 126 ability point to unlock the warclaw mastery
  • completed the rewardtrack with potions and used to helmet, to see that the helmet achievement is still locked.
  • went to the obsidian sanctum wich unlocked the achievement, but it didnt complete the helm.

so now i need to get the helm but i cant repeat the rewardtrack.

EDIT: the silverwastes rewardtrack seems to have another warclaw armor box where one can get the helmet, however it is not repeatable so you might have already done it.

    make sure you actually open the final chest(that looks like those leyline and bladed armor chests from HoT) you get for the Warclaw reward track, unlike all the other warclaw armor cheeve pieces that just went straight to the bag, & not having to open a chest. Can be overlooked if you're not opening all the other reward chest loots right away or mistake it for a different box. :D

    I consumed it in pve and it worked. However, I put points in the mastery first.

    Also I did not receive the achievement the mastery until I entered wvw. Moral of the story is to do it all in wvw

  • Same issue for me :(

    Exact same problem for me. Consumed potions of WvW reward track in my guild hall, helmet did not unlock. Reward track is complete but not showing as completed in the collection.

    Update: I have now completed everything except the helmet. I am unable to acquire the helmet because I have already completed the single completion warclaw reward track. Waiting on fix.

    Similar, except I did it all in WvW. First thing I did was spend the achievement points in WvW. Then proceeded through collection, when I had 6/8, used potions to complete reward track. Got helmet, got certificate. Double clicked on both (unsure of what order for that). So now I show 8/8 on the completion, but mount is still locked. Have re-logged and gone into OS to confirm problem still persists. Doing a REPAIR now to see if that will resolve.

    Edit: Thanks to those for pointing it out: not a bug in my case. User error. Just needed to revisit the vendor. I think the certificate I received upon getting the helmet threw me off.

    Folks are saying there is a vendor you need to go to after to actually purchase the mount?

    if you finished the whole thing you should just have to go purchase the mount from the vendor.

  • somehow my silverwaste reward track had another warclaw armor box, and when i finisshed this reward track i got another warclaw helmet an the achievement was unlocked!

    oh right it shows to me also to have one at the end, however thats a onetime rewardtrack that i have done long ago. ill put that workaround in the OP for the ones that can use it.

    sadly silverwastes is non-repeatable, so i can't even try that. but Raymond said they are working on a fix

    There is currently a bug affecting the warclaw that prevents players from progressing on the collection.

    We are working on a fix for this.

    In the meantime, we would suggest not completing the warclaw reward track until after you unlock the collection in WvW.

    I have the same problem. I unlocked the achievement. I completed the reward track. The helmet is not in the collection - although I consumed it

  • Same here. I unlocked the achievements, completed the reward track, opened the chest, consumed the helmet....and nothing. I was in the pvp lobby, so maybe the messed up the achievement by making it dependant on the map you're in? Also the vendor does not sell anything but the contract to me, which makes no sense that no one thought on adding the other items on a diferent tab, just in case.
    P.S:Also aparently I messed up too, because the reward track I finished was the Silverwastes one, so first of all, I didn't get the right reward because it gave me the warclaw chest instead, and second, if they fix it the only way to check if I have it or not would be the track completion and I don't have that. Great...

    they fixed this issue already by adding the item if you consumed it to the warclaw tamer npc in the mist where you buy 2 other parts aswell. so just go there and buy it for 0. you actually do get 5 skirmish tickets for free with that fix. (you also can get those tickets if you didnt fail like us :3 )

    Just did the same thing now. Hopped on an alt that didn't have the points spent when I got the helmet. Kind of silly really, all that would need to happen is the mount to unlock as the achievement happens or as soon as the point is spent.

    The vendor I was talking about was the warclaw tamer, so no fix for me. Probably the helmet appears if you've compleated the track, and like I said before I did the wrong one, compleating the silverwastes one and loking the reward of it forever. There are multiple levels of fail on this and I hit every single one of them.

    probably yes, i did have both when they added that fix so i dunno to wich one it is tied.

  • Anet never seem to learn from the past and seem content to shoot-themselves-in-the-foot and ruin for many what would have been very good work. Was it VITAL to combine reward and achievement tracks plus vendor to unlock? Didn't they know of the past problems with this approach? Its like creating a beautiful work of art only to beat your customer over their head with it.

    I spent most of my spare time this weekend getting the reward track, the achievement track, and finding the vendor and STILL no poodle. Midnight Sunday night and hacked-off to say the least. Not the first time either ….

  • Inculpatus cedo.9234Inculpatus cedo.9234 Member ✭✭✭✭

    It seems to work for thousands. Make sure you have place at least one point in the Warclaw Ability line.
    As for doing the wrong track, those players will probably have to complete the correct track, but, again, make sure you've placed at least one point in the Warclaw Ability track, just to make sure.

    Good luck.
