New Nimble Onslaught bugged?

Did the meta as the patch hit, completed the event with it clearly showing i only got hit once. Re logged to see if that did anything, did nothing but remove the achievement.

    I've done the Drakkar meta twice today, should have been eligible both times, didn't get it. It's definitely bugged.

    EDIT: Not bugged. I tried doing the achieve without any cheesy tricks and was able to get it simply by participating from start to finish and playing smart. See other threads on this subject.

  • Meanwhile, I've finished the achievement day one and still get the eligibility buff counter every fight for no reason.

    The achievement has been removed, or just the icon for the elegibility? Because it seems quite normal to have the elegibility always popping-up (it happens also to me). In the last patch notes they said that they increased the threshold to get the contribution. Probably you didn't do enough damage to Drakkar.
    @Inculpatus cedo.9234 in another thread said that he didn't even get credit for the kill. So probably the damage was too low.

  • I got the Achievement on the subsequent completion of the event (as well as credit for the kill). I'm sure I did much more damage that time.

    The original achievement, "Nimble Onslaught, has been removed - or is now unattainable, to be precise, as those who already had it, didn't lose it.
    The new achievement is called "Truly Nimble Onslaught" and has an increased hit threshold of 20 before losing eligibility.
    The icon in the UI is still named "Nimble Onslaught Eligibility", though.

    I got it on the day of the release, admittedly, by cheesing it: I stayed on the perch above until Drakkar's health dropped below 10%.

    Ah, my bad. I misread the "This achievement allows for a higher hit-count threshold." when I read it for the first time.
    I thought they meant that to get the Truly one you had to deal more damage, not that the hit-count increased from 10 to 20.
    Thank you MikeG :)

    OK, after further review, I think the achieve has been stealth fixed against the old exploits, rather than being bugged. I got the achieve yesterday on my third try. The first two times, I tried the old tricks. Didn't work. The final successful attempt...

    • I used my staff mirage, who is my most elusive character and has long range.
    • I was actively in the event from start to finish, from escorting Jhavi all the way through the end.
    • I did reasonable damage in every phase of the event.
    • In each phase as Drakkar came out of the wall, I quickly placed three clones to ping Drakkar constantly, while I moved back to avoid the stomps and AOE.
    • When Drakkar's head went down for the whirlwind phase, then I moved in and unloaded my heavy stuff until he went back into the wall.
    • I went through the second champ portal, to make sure I got credit for one.
    • I did NOT get downed. Not sure if that makes a difference or not, but it might, so I was double careful.
    • I ended up finishing the event with four stacks left and got the achieve.

    Hope that helps somebody.
