Makeb Exploration Achievement Didn't Unlock: What Do We Do?

Must be a rare-ish bug. I got the "Explorer of Makeb" Achievement and so did at least 20 people in my guild.
Could it have something to do with what faction you were playing on?

Maybe, I hadn't thought of that.

I'm on the Republic side.

Although it is unlikely, this could also possibly be a server problem. I'm on Prophecy of the Five.

Balmorra (at least on the Imperial side) has the exact same bug, even though the map is fully revealed and you receive a message saying "You have surveyed the entire map of Balmorra!" the achievement doesn't unlock because it states that only 1/2 Dread Seed areas were discovered. Can someone confirm if this occurs on Republic Balmorra as well?

BW, I went to Makeb with another toon (same legacy), to try to unlock just a few areas to see if it would trigger the achievement. No go. I noticed that it appears as though the glitch occurs in Braken Mesa. You can walk into the area, the map will unlock, and it will show a green checkmark next to the area on the achievements list. However, no 'yellow' text pops up telling you that you've explored Braken Mesa. It appears as though this is somehow tied to the achievement, but I'm not a dev so I have no idea. Is this enough information to check on to warrant a reply at least?

I got the same issue. It seems to happen if the Brakan Mesa is the last area you explore.

I am getting the same issue with Braken Mesa not unlocking for the achievement. I tried on 3 different toons (none of which had every other location unlocked). I used 2 republic toons and 1 imp toon, and none of them received the unlock when I crossed the bridge.

@bioware, I think it's about time you fixed this bug. But hey it was more important to bring down the servers just for some GSF bug that wasn't even crucial? Bugs still exist since beta. Oh and the falling through geometry bug is back!

I have personally explored all planets 100% - so Galactic Explorer title.
When I used ONLY a republic Character it was impossible to get the Makeb Exploration achievement. It was only after I'd taken an Imp character around that the achievement unlocked.

I think it's as others have said, you can't explore Braken Mesa last. I'm unclear though - those that are bugged, does it not work if you explore with another toon and make sure Braken Mesa isn't last?

I've given up on exploration and other codex thingies because I can't deal with the amount of bugs the codex has even after two years. I doubt these issues will ever get fixed since the only thing BW cares is the Cartel market. So, let's ask them for a CM Codex unlocking thingy.
