The rockets pink glare achievement bugged

Customer Support
the avhiev states 20 seconds, but only gives 10 seconds to do the 10 rockets... with a 1 second CD on the rockets, this is impossible. is this being fixed soon?

Thanks
I am not aware of any bugs - having done this achievement on multiple toons this season. Perhaps it's lag?
nah. tried it twice. used a stopwatch. only gives 10 seconds then resets.

I'm not aware of any issues with the achievement, Pythius. All testing indicates that it is currently working as intended (i.e. 10 rockets in 20 seconds).

You may want to try disabling any addons you have or resetting your UI to see if that helps. I'd also recommend going to a less populated area, that can help too.

If you continue to experience an issue, even after resetting your UI, you may want to post in the Bug Report forum so our QA department can look into it.
Kinda funny a blue post responded not knowing I was just on with a gm and they told me its a known issue that the timer are off and are working at fixing it.....so which is it?
Very frustrating cause this is the only thing I have left and Ive blown quite a few tokens on it just to be told sorry we cant replace tokens and it took over a day just to be told this.
One post was 21 hours ago. At that point in time, it indeed may not have been a 'known issue', where as 'just now', 21 hours later, it is.

Funny how that works.
Funny how this is the most blown event this game has ever had. Been playing since the first ever release. Koodos that first time I ever had a major issue with one but still would like to finish it lol
This achievement can be done. If you're having trouble, it's because you're doing it wrong. Go to a low-pop, low-intensity area, macro the rockets to a hotkey, and spam them as fast as you can.

TL;DR?

Go to a low-pop area
Macro rockets
?
Profit

Actually, the response you received, Aenis, thanked you for taking the time to report this matter to us. It also stated that the achievement was under investigation. It did not state that this was a "known issue".

One recommendation would be to open up your achievement panel and track that particular achievement. Many people who fail in one attempt are not waiting long enough for the timer to reset.

We will continue to investigate these reports but thus far it does not appear that there is an issue with the achievement.

I too, have tried to do this twice.
Both times have been in Orgrimmar around 12:30 AM and i know that I made it under 20 seconds both times because I timed it.

Is there any more news to report here?
I completed this on my first try yesterday. I was in Undercity. I have also seen others get the achievement with no issues. It doesn't seem bugged from my perspective. Maybe you're jamming on the button?

I timed my button presses to coincide with the end of the cooldown instead of pressing indiscriminately. It worked great and I was in well before 20 seconds.
Trying to do this sort of timed event in Orgrimmer or other crowded places is not the best way to go about it, try doing it out in the open away from other players, lag can and will mess this up.

Good advice, but some people still need a tl;dr.

tl;dr - Go to Shattrath.
Hi. I too had major trouble with this achievement. I just wanted to let people know that once i turned Carbonite off the timer acted normally. It was still close and i think a speed potion helped, but i was able to get it. I tried several times with Carbonite on and failed each time.
Hope this helps someone out there....
I'm having the same issue with this achievement. And it happened also on the Lunar Festival, with the Red Rockets. I can go up to 8 rockets, and then the timer is reset, and so I fail in it.

Hope this bug got fixed so I can complete the event.

If you'd read the above posts, you'd notice that they're stating that there is no bug.

Go somewhere with a low population.

Turn off your addons.

Profit.

any info on it would be nice.i opened a ticket on it and they said to go to forums.

Just ignore the counter most of the time that is simply a display issue.

If you do what is required then you will earn the achievement.
