Story achievement badges?


Recommended Posts

So i'm unsure what these are called, but they're the Yellow badges that show on one of the bars when your in a story/mission, that have achievements that you haven't unlocked/completed yet. It used to be that you hovered over that and it gave a description of the task. The last couple of days i've been playing there has been no description at all. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Without knowing which you've seen vs. which you are talking about now, I cannot say for certain. But many don't have mouse-over descriptions when in your buff/boons/debuffs bar and are mostly for tracking eligibility (e.g., time remaining, number of tasks or kills). IMO, you are better off doing a "/wiki <achievement name>" or checking your achievement panel for the actual descriptions and related information.

Unless they have changed, most of the older content just list the name of the achievement that you are still eligible for. Future content was a bit more descriptive telling you the requirements for the achievement so you didn't have to look them up. IIRC it was EoD or PoF content that is when I noticed the switch over when I did the story missions my first time through.

Ahhhh, okay, yes thats probably it, I was going through some older storylines, so it makes more sense now. I would have never noticed them when I went through originally being a lot newer player and all. Thank you!
