We tried again with a full group and everyone got the achievo. This may be a long shot, but we've managed to 1-shot it this time, no wipes in the second phase. I feel that it could be related to why the achievement is not granted despite avoiding the traps.

Theory: If you wipe on the second phase, no matter if you avoided the traps during the first phase, you may not get the achievement.

My theory is based on the fact that the other 2 times we did the uprising and got to that point (the 2nd phase of that boss fight) we wiped and even though we didn't touch the traps we still didn't get the achievo.

I was in a group that tried this today with 3 players and a companion, no one died and no one touched traps.

No achievement, and CS are doing EVERYTHING and i mean EVERYTHING in their power to avoid talking about why we dont get it and wont grant the achievement.

They keep saying we are not eligable.

So either there is a special extra mechanic we dont know and they wont tell us.

Or its bugged and they wont admit it.

Sent them 2 vids, still nothing.

The achievement is still bugged after who knows how many years.
We did several runs again recently without receiving the achievement, but in the end managed to get it.
Here are some rules we followed on the successful run:

- Avoid all tables in the room with the traps (and also the fallen chairs to that matter)
- Do not use any AoE in the room with the traps (as a sorc heal I didn't use Roaming Mend either just to be safe)
- For DD use only ranged classes
- Defeat the boss on the first try (no previous wipes from the beginning of the run)
- Don't kill the adds in the previous area in the room with the button that turns you into rakghoul (this also makes the door after elevator to bug, but can be fixed by returning to the elevator and going back to the door again)

Most of those we did in the previous runs as well, but didn't get the achievement. The only differences this time were not using roaming mend and not killing the adds. So one of those might have something to do with the result or it might be completely random, who knows.

Here is the video of the run for anybody interested:

I'm one of the people in Casper's video. As said in the description we avoided the tables, but I'm not sure that was the issue. The achievement can bug in all difficulties but happens most often on MM, which is why I believe the cause is something that is more likely to happen in a harder difficulty, for example taking too long to kill the boss, or dying (but I doubt it is actually either of those). I know Roaming Mend was not the issue as I used it in both rooms in that run.

Now that uprisings are unscaled it's much easier to get this, or at least it's easier to keep trying till it works.
