Potential instances which may not complete future highlight week achievements


Recommended Posts

This post is in response to the recent patch indicating the intention to award achievement completion credit from completing the instance itself rather than the story step.  Below are some instances where there's a good chance this will not occur.

 

LS2E7 - No Refuge (Awarded when loading back onto the map)

LS2E8 - The Mystery Cave (Appears to trigger after the cinematic when you're loaded back onto the map)

LS3E1 - Research in Rata Novus (Appears to trigger after the cinematic when you've loaded onto the new map)

LS3E2 - Taimi's Game (Appears to trigger after you've loaded onto the new map)

LS4E6 - Descent (Credit given in an epilogue instance which appears to be separate)

LS5E2 - Voice in the Deep (Appears to be awarded in a separate instance)

LS5E4 - One Charr, One Dragon, One Champion (Appears to be awarded in a separate instance)

 

Below are the instances which I checked as I believe they would have future achievements tied to them through the highlight weeks.  I didn't check if there were purple instances associated with them but assumed there was.  If you include achievements for instances without this then be prepared for players to be upset.  The bolded are the ones I had flagged above.

I made this thread last week to highlight possible story instances which players may find themselves not getting credit for if they enter through the purple marker.

 

With the next highlight week starting tomorrow, I figured that I would point out the possibility of them running into this issue with two instances:

 

LS2E7 - No Refuge (Awarded when loading back onto the map)

LS2E8 - The Mystery Cave (Appears to trigger after the cinematic when you're loaded back onto the map)

 

EDIT:  Looks like these ones were updated as the story step is progressing sooner than in the play-through videos from years ago.
