3 try - PT, solo, no combat droid, Mako set to heal. Took him to 2 fires, completely ignored 3 fire, just stood in one place and dpsed him while adds tried to kill Mako. Achieve awarded as soon as boss is dead.

So here's your walkaround for Champion - just run solo, dont use more then 2 fires (depends on your dps I guess, i am not the most skilled dps out there).

Don't know anything about HM, but if its the same there, will have to warn your group before pulling him.
DID everything you said up there before you posted this. Several times with a gunslinger, solo. Doesnt work. The bug has nothing to do with fire. Something else is underlying. Good for everyone who thinks thats what it is, and might get lucky but that just isnt the case. So awesome we cant get a swtor official to comment on this. I spoke with them on the phone. they are aware, but wouldnt tell me anything else. Typical

Did you make sure not to use any DoTs? I know gunslingers don't have many but it may be worth a shot.

Would like to see an official statement as this is a progress blocker for those that can't get it unlocked.

It's a shame there's no way of double checking but once you've unlocked it it's done.
It may just be a case of 5% chance of failing to register and you are in the hands of the RNGeni ! it's human nature to try and link cause and effect

However, I really think this needs to be fixed and if the underlying issue can not be sorted in a suitable timeframe the Flashpoint should be removed from the achievement list.

I am mentally and emotionally preparing for the *****torm that will go down if this doesn't get fixed in time, because I'm pretty sure the achievement won't be removed. (Or when BW considers 1 week before end of event "in time".)

For now I'm taking this off my GF queue. No point in wasting time on it.

Dunno, wish they would just fix the dammed thing.
Nope. This wasn't the first time it happened, so I looked up the issue and made sure I got everything off the "checklist" (except dismissing the Jesus Droid, but he was busy with the adds at the time, so he wasn't the issue). I took DoM off the GF, not even going to bother with it until it's fixed.

Spoiler


This kind of works. I was having the same problem with the FP. I dragged the final boss under 2 fires and then killed him in the middle without using the 3rd one.

So what I'm thinking is that, you need to kill him with your own weapons instead of the flames that erupt from the pipes.

So when are we actually going to receive communication about this given its blocking progress in their much vaunted event? I've done it twice and it hasn't updated the achievement. How hard can it be to work out why the achievement isn't being updated on FP completion like every other FP.

I just did Depths of Mannaan for the third time, Solo mode I did wipe in the last fight and continued without resetting Miracle of miracles it counted on my D/L achievement list. I don't know why but I am happy it did.

Hey folks,

I can confirm that there is an issue with Depths of Manaan granting credit for the Dark vs. Light Achievement. As some of you in the thread have guessed, the issue is caused by the environmental fire killing the boss instead of your character. If that happens, the Achievement will not properly track that you have completed the Flashpoint.

The way to get around this is to ensure that your character doing damage is what kills the final boss. As long as this happens you will get credit for the Achievement.

Thanks everyone. I will pass on any updates as I have them.

Thanks for the response Eric

I've managed to get through now but I know others are still working through it and I would imagine there are some that haven't checked their achievements yet

So how does this work for groups then Eric? People are reporting only one player getting credit...if that even. Is this being investigated as well?
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force
