The Secret World: The Achievement that Wasn’t

Warning: Spoilers Abound!

[EDIT]: For the video of my successful attempt at this Achievement, click here.

After many attempts at trying to get this achievement, I was pretty sure I had it nailed down. I decided to record it as I ran it in hopes of posting my big bragging rights at having soloed it. Sadly, despite meeting the criteria (don’t trip any alarms so the vampire spawns and kill him within five minutes of entering the facility), I didn’t receive the achievement. I put in a petition, but was told it’s a known issue and there was nothing they could do to help me. I are sad face. I post it here so others can enjoy my pain.


Above is a screen cap of my petition and the response. Honestly, they must be able to look in logs somewhere to see if I did it. Alas, I will simply try again in three days, perhaps doing a few things slightly differently. We’ll see how that turns out.

    There is a guide on youtube, on how to do it. While i have not done the achievement myself yet, according to that video the achievement is not granted when killing the vampire, but when also finishing the mission which gets available after the vampire is killed (and at the place it is when you start the fight).

    You still have one minute left, you could manage, i know that all in all in my last attempts i was too slow by just a few seconds.

      Yeah, I came across that video showing the quest that pops up after you kill him … poor design on the part of Funcom in my opinion. I’ll be running it again tomorrow, and recording it again. We’ll see how it goes.
