Achievement Bug: A Quick Study

I just picked up the people lore book Notes of Urik the Seer, Part 3. It was definitely the first time I'd heard it, so it hasn't bugged on me before. I opened my achievements pane to check and it's not listed as read. I am aware that achievements cannot be rewarded after the fact, but I would like this bug fixed so I can get that one done.

I ran into the same issue with a different lore book—I picked up Gillian's Diary, Part 2, but it did not register a check mark on my progress for A Quick Study. I then picked up Cain's Old Journal, Part 2, which did register.

Around the time, I was frequently getting an error message about being unable to retrieve achievements when opening up the achievements screen (I forget the exact error number), but despite the error, the achievements screen would still open up.

Apparently for many people all achievements are completely bugged since 1.0.3. Hopefully there will be a hotfix announcement soon.

I'm not getting the achievement for a quick study. on the achievement list it shows i have all but 2 books. leoric vol 4 leoric vol 5. my lore books have these two vol. i should have this award. i cannot read these books again as the lectern from which they would fall only give me gold now since i do actually already have the two volumes in question. lack of customer support for this unacceptable.

hey blizzard, if you're not going to fix this for people who can now no longer get these achievments then you should probably better fking make a list of all the uncompletable achievments so we can see all the other things about diablo3 that we shouldn't have wasted money buying.

My problem is a bit different but equally annoying. All my books are checked for Historian of Trstram and I still do not have the achievement. I got all the books on my own about a month ago but decided to wait for the patch(es) to see if it would be fixed. It hasn't been.

Having them all checked and not getting credit is a completely different bug than missing a check mark and not being able to get it on a specific character.

If you are missing a check mark you can create a new character to get it checked off. Don't just switch to another existing character because that one could be bugged too. Create a new one to be sure and you'll get what you're missing.

If all the boxes are checked and you don't have credit, there's nothing you can do. You're pretty much SOL until Blizzard gets it together and fixes it for you.

If you already have the lore book but it's not checked off your achievement list i.e. able to read the lore but not registered as read in your achievement list, just bring another character in to get the lore book again. That should check the book off your achievement list.

If your books are all checked and achievement was not awarded, you will need to wait for Blizzard to actually find this important enough for a fix.
