Diablo® III

[BUG] Metalworking Achievement Cannot Advance

I have a situation where I attained the achievements "Mind on the Metal" and "Metalworking" on the Hardcore Blacksmith, and then I obtained and taught 30+ blacksmith plans to the Softcore Blacksmith and my number of teachings for the "Heavy Metalworking" Achievement didn't increase. In fact, it decreased from 26 to 25.

By my calculations, I should have completed "Heavy Metalworking" and should now be busy progressing "Heavier Metalworking" with 56 teachings to date, counting my teachings from Softcore (36) and Hardcore (20).

I think this topic may have been missed amongst the other spam which gets posted. It would be nice to see if any other people have had this issue too. Blizzard Support are unable to help me - they state:

We are unable to accept requests for this type of issue.


Furthermore, their Diablo III Restorations page states:

Customer Support cannot award or alter achievements in Diablo III. If an achievement is not awarded and you feel that it should be, please attempt the achievement’s criteria again.


This is not very helpful since I cannot re-teach the plans to the blacksmith.

Thank goodness I only used IGG to buy these plans.

I've just checked my achievements this morning and am very happy to have seen that my blacksmith plan teachings have risen from the bizarre 25 to a happier 47. While it is not the correct value of 56, it does make reaching the blacksmith achievement more possible. I might right now try to quickly teach the blacksmith 3 more plans so I'm onto the next level.

Thank you for fixing this
