Merchandise Collector

I'm not 100% sure, but from what I can see this achievement is unachievable.
Am I missing something?

    Technically, you can. But it may take you a century or two depending on your luck.

    No, it's achievable...just that there's no time frame you can put to it when you might achieve it.

    Yes...no...maybe...what do you want, can't you see I'm busy saving the world...AGAIN!

    You almost can. A second visage got posted today. So we're just one visage away from one lucky fan getting that last AP :p

    A third visage box was finally listed today. So if you're that one player who has been waiting to use this cheeve to complete your story meta it's finally possible to do so, and all for less than 28k. Happy spending :)

    Thank god they doubled the drop rate, they're flowing like water now!

    Ha. I’ve been farming the chests through map completion. I opened about 15 of them last night and got nothing but those rare/exotic weapons they had added with the last patch. Essentially it made me decide to just do only my daily vault, JP, and strike mission.

    I've done all four metas, jp, strike mission and opened the vault every day since release, plus several map completions and gotten zero drops unique to the map :p

    That's just rng though. Without this achievement we would have to rely on the home node selling for so much less than vendor price, chilies as inventory clutter and disabled decorations to even notice that there was anything amiss with this ep's rewards ;)

    I have no issue with the drops being rare. I’ve just decided that it’s not worth my time to put as much effort as I was the last couple weeks.

    Yeah I agree, the rarity of the drops isn't the issue at all. I've got nothing for the decorations but the other reward issues can be explained away as well. We'll likely get some future uses for the chilies, hopefully at least one of them an infinite sink like a loot bag vendor or something. And the issue with the home instance node could be a simple mistake of misjudging demand . . .

    But putting a drop this rare in an achievement, then putting that achievement in a story meta where it will absolutely never be used is a very strong indicator that something somewhere has gone wrong . . .
