    Description: Doing the mission "Final Fugue" and trying for the ach/char flag for Plucked achievement I have done it multiple time without getting a failure message for the plucked ach and have yet to receive the achievement but others in the group receive it when they already have it.

    Only the first person to zone into the instance can get the achievement at this time. This HAD been fixed already with the last regular patch, but was reverted back to the faulty state with the following emergency patch.

    This doesn't even seem 100% guaranteed, in our runs. We've had someone that was not first to zone in get the achievement.

    So far, the only semi-functional way to get it that we've found is to:
    1. Be the first to zone in. This doesn't seem guaranteed, but does seem to help.
    2. Make sure you are on Kar's hate list for the entire fight.
    3. Be near Kar when the auras appear, then run away. Don't just stay away the entire fight.
    It's annoying and absolutely bugged.

    The most reliable way I found so far is zoning in first and killing the four archers before engaging the Kar. That is, as soon as he pops and smacktalks, all move to the archers and kill them. Kar will kill the remaining NPCs and happily wait for you to come back to him and engage.
    Got the achievement for my complete team this way.

    Did this method always work?

    I just tried this ... and even killed Kar before any auras spawned. And no one got Plucked at all.

    It worked 6 out of 6 times for me.

    1. Character that needs Plucked get the mission from Swallows
    2. Character that needs Plucked zones in first.
    3. Nobody else zones until the first character actually lands in zone first.
    4. Don't let that first character die during the ambush phases.
    5. When Kar locks at 80% leave him locked, have DPS kill all 4 archers.
    6. Make Kar dead as normal. There will be no aura to avoid and no movement necessary.
    7. Grats on Plucked for the single character.

    This seems not to be necessary. On all my runs for the achievements I always had the same toon request the task.

    But yes, the first character must be completely spawned in the ini before others come in.

    Thanks for the help.

    I followed Metanis's list except I just burned Kar at the end. Auras popped after 8 percent and ran out as soon as he was dead. Character that got the mission & zoned in first received the Plucked cheese.

    First character to zone in definitely gets the achievement.
    Even if you kill the archers before engaging there is a bug in that if you kill Kar too fast then you won't get the plucked achievement. I've found that slowing down the DPS until you get the first Orange aura will ensure that the first zoned in character gets the achieve

    Personally, I think they should just fix the bugged achievement, rather than us coming up with esoteric conspiracies about how to get it. :p

    It WAS fixed...for about a week until they did the emergency patch, which broke it again.

    If you kill Kar before the archer check has a chance to go off (meaning, if archers are up then the blue aura appears, if not up then only the red aura appears) then no one gets the achievement. You can't just burn him down to get the cheeve, and that appears to be broken by way of the wording.
