    Description: This Character is bugged somehow specific to the achievment "plucked" in the FF mission. Please look at Missror's log information, you will see i have done this mission many times exactly like im supposed to, and not gotten the achievement. Please help with this, it is the only one I have left and it is driving me crazy !!

    Do you kill the four archers that spawn together with final boss?
    This seems to be the only reliable way to get the achievement. Never succeeded in running from aura.

    This is by far the easiest way to get the achievement. Have someone tank the last guy while someone else runs and kills the archers. They'll die super fast if you're using a rogue and/or ranger.

    I don't even know how the aura mechanic is supposed to work.

    I've gotten the ach. many times for multiple people without ever touching the archers. What seems to be the trick is to have the person who needs it be close to the boss when the aura starts. ie. you need to be in the red portion of the aura when it starts, THEN run way out of the blue portion. I'm pretty sure that all the fails I have seen are when a caster is standing back and not in the red portion of the aura when it starts.

    The only reliable method I've used myself and seen work for others is to have the person needing "Plucked" zone into the instance first. Then avoid aura as necessary. Only works on the first person to zone in.

    Yeah, but if you just kill the archers, everybody gets it.

    I've gotten it for 2 people at once without killing any archers, since "The Patch"

    The bug that only the first person to zone in could get the achievement has been fixed with January patch. I have seen multiple persons getting it at the same time since then.

    I believe you need to be near Kar until the aura starts, then run out of it, but I can not confirm that. I have not seen anyone since the patch start in the blue aura then run out of the blue aura and not get it.

    You can however run to far away and get emote that you are not in danger or something to that effect which will also fail the ach.

    Just ran FF earlier today. Ran off to kill the archers when Kar spawned, and didn't get the achievement because...

    ...which is kinda BS, since I didn't manage to kill the last archer until Kar was down.
  12. Velisaris_MS Augur

    Pretty sure you have to get them dead before the point where they start shooting.

    Or not be hit by the arrows. Which I wasn't. Which is what the achievement describes as the requirement.

    There's nothing in my logs for the archers casting, or anyone being hit by, Feathered Sky. I get that they didn't want folks to sit outside the instance and collect credit by sponging the task, but for folks that actually run the task, this is nonsense.

    Did any auras spawn or did you kill him too fast?
  15. Gialana Augur

    Are you getting a failure message? I've seen something along the lines of you were never in danger.
  16. NyteShayd Elder

    Yeah, seems like the issue previously was killing the boss too fast. At least one blue aura has to appear, and you have to be well outside it, but not all that far, every time.

    Found a tank heavy, DPS light group today. SKs on Bristlebane seem to think they're DPS that wear plate.
