I noticed today that Firestone Shards I had already collected earlier reappeared on the map (to make sure it I hadn't missed them before I checked the count in the Rock Collector achievement and it stayed the same after picking it up).
Since the ones I saw were in quite obvious locations, I might have picked them up a year or so ago when I first entered the map. I recently started doing the achievement though and try getting as far as I can, without using a guide; I would appreciate if the task wouldn't be made more complicated than it already is
I seem to remember reading on reddit that Golden Badges reappeared for players in the Silverwastes, so there might be some bigger underlying problem.
Please nerf Paper and buff Rock. Scissors is ok as is. Signed, Rock.
