Warhorn Master doesn't advance

Hello,

I would like to get this one done and unfortunately progress is blocked.

With my necro, I have tried killing ambient creatures in instances and also in the open world, and the achievement does not advance.

I have not tried other classes, I will do so and post back.

Is this a known issue? I do not see any record of it.

    To acquire weapon-related achievements, the last hit must be dealt with that particular weapon a specific number of times. Only the weapon related to the weapon skill that strikes the killing blow will earn a point. If the target dies from any other source of damage such as Pets, trait effects, condition damage or most utility skills no credit is given, although several utility skills count as kills from a certain weapon.

    With necro, it helps to remove the main hand and just use Warhorn 5.

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

  • I tried removing main hand weapon, no luck. I also tried elementalist with no main hand weapon. The warhorn kill count is not advancing. Strange, because shield kills are advancing their count.

    Warhorn 5 dont work on necro after the change to it, its not counted as a warhorn skill anymore

  • Tempest kills with warhorn are counting. It's necro kills that don't count.

    more easy way create new char - ranger, and use warhorn.
    also keep attention - this count ONLY killng blows from you AND that weapon skill, if you use util skill or another wep at blow - it not count.
    so if u wiht necro spamm f1 f2 f3 f4 and put conditions, you descrease chance to get +1 to warhorn achiv.

    Some weapon achievements are impossible to achieve due to the count mechanic. It's ridiculous; you have used the weapon thousands of times, yet the game insist you haven't, because of some weapon skill mechanic.

    Every kill should count for the equipped weapon(s), regardless of whether the respective weapon finished the enemy or not.

    And we have achievements that you described, they named https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Slayer
    example Kill 1000 ogres. They count every kill )

    one more moment - achievement progress is long if you check it each time, but if you put on druid warhorn, spam all skill and get pleasure from game-play - progress is incredibly fast
