Patch 2.3.2 brings a number of relevant fixes to achievements, including the following:

New Vehicle! The Desler Nomad is a new rare drop from the final boss of all level 55 Hard Mode Flashpoints.

Players will receive the correct Achievement for completing these Explosive Conflict Operations encounters:
  • Firebrand and Stormcaller on 8-Person Hard Mode
  • Firebrand and Stormcaller on 16-Person Story Mode
  • Colonel Vorgath on 16-Person Story Mode

All Imperial players can now reach the lore object to obtain the "Invasion of Balmorra" Codex entry, as it has been moved just inside the Balmorran Arms Factory.
This means that the Desler Collector achievement is now attainable, assuming that you want to grind out the Desler Explorer. I've encountered all of the following achievement issues for EC, so assuming that you haven't found ways around these already, there should no longer be any problems attaining achievements for EC (other than finding a group for 16m NiM--good luck with that). There are also a few fixes for achievement tracking that I didn't list. Finally, the Invasion of Balmorra codex being accessible to everyone means that players can complete the Imperial Loremaster of Balmorra achievement without rolling a new Agent character.

Additionally, a few updates for Bounty Contract Week (upcoming again here shortly)

These contracts (Kingpin Bounty Contracts) now grant a Bounty Brokers Association Official Token of Exemplary Achievement (Purple Reputation Token) as opposed to a Bounty Brokers Association Official Certificate of Accomplishment (Blue Reputation Token).

Individual Kingpin Bounty Contracts can be completed only one time during each Bounty Contract Week.
So, if you didn't already grind out enough tokens for Legend during the last event (like I did), you should be able to get +reputation faster/with less effort via purple tokens instead of blues, from Kingpin Bounties. However, if there were Kingpins you didn't attain for achievement points, then this will take much longer as you can only kill OR cryo one individual Kingpin per week.

A small update for me, up to 20710. Haven't done too many planetary achievements this week, mostly just grinding PvP kills. Halfway and then some to Manhunter.

Thanks also to Ygnox for your update and letting us know what achievements we can expect in 2.4.
