Easing the Steady Hands achievement?

#1 » Post by Gnurg » 31 Mar 2015 21:22

The Steady Hands achievement is a very dull achievement as it requires you to disarm 5 Saronite Bombs within one match of Strand the Ancient. The chance of having the opposing faction plant 5 bombs, that you would actually manage to disarm, is close to 0. The furthest I have gotten is 3 and I rarely get to disarm even 1 bomb.

Even though it is a near impossible achivement, quite a few players already have the achievement. Most likely due to having a friend plant bombs that they could disarm. You can find cases where two players have the achivement within 1 minute of eachother, making it way too obvious what went down that day.

I don't really see any way for me or any other player to get this achievement without going for the same apporach that I just mentioned. My suggestion is therefore to go for what Blizzard did with this achivement with the release of Cataclysm, reducing the ammount to just 2 bombs.

Anyone agree/disagree?

If what you say about it being impossible doing it the legit way is true, then it makes sense, I agree. But, if we would follow that reasoning around here, and by tha reasoning I mean to change things for the benefit of the server, then we wouldn't be "WotLK Blizzlike". Sadly, that adjective for us is stopping us from really improving the game experience for us in this server, IMO, and the majority of people in here only need to know it is "not blizzlike" to throw the idea away without looking back. Although, we did get gladiator gear price converted to honor, so we will see.

+1 anyway.

I totally agree with you, Etro, Blizzard did not make a flawless game. There's room for plenty of improvement. :)

They have to plant it for it to disarmable, else you just pick up the bomb.

Bump. I would like to see the requirement lowered from 5 to 2, making it possible to complete the legit way.

I believe people are in favour of this one as those who have it have likely had some friend help them complete it.

Would changing the demands field to 2 for the specific achievement in the achievement.dbc implement it? https://trinitycore.atlassian.net/wiki/ ... chievement

Bump, would like to see this happen as the achievement is impossible without help from other players.

Judging by https://trinitycore.atlassian.net/wiki/ ... chievement, is this everything required to make it work as in the suggestion?

Code: Select all

UPDATE `achievement_dbc` SET `Demands` = 2 WHERE `Id` = 1765;

DBCs are game files, they are not database tables (they are, just not in the sense you expect them to be)
