So it is still bugged for those who already had the achievement before the hotfix?

Should we open a ticket to get stronger pet traps? Or just screwed?

I'm opening yet another ticket on this issue to see if there will be any resolution at all. No blue post has stated anywhere how players whom have previously received the achievement, but did not actually get the award, will be compensated / fixed.

I remember getting the achievement a few days ago and it said "Reward: Strong pet trap" but I never got one.
Since I've long since passed that stage (50 pets IIRC) I cannot even check to see if it's been counted.

Bump for this. Trying to catch lvl 24s is almost impossible when the starter trap misses 6 or 7 times. Especially against spiders and frogs when they keep healing as it gives them plenty of time to eat through your roster.


This should be impossible as it says change goes up 20% per miss ... so 6 =110%

I assume its "BLIZZARD MATHS" .. thats being used here ( like my 110% :) )

No, your "maths" is wrong :) It is by 20%, not plus 20%. Thus multiply the previous percentage by 1.2 to get the next percentage (say 30%, 36%, 43%, etc.)

We applied a hotfix to attempt to resolve issues of not properly receiving the upgraded Strong and Pristine traps. Please let us know if you're still having the issue, what character and realm is seeing the issue, and once you received the achievement, did your trap art, tooltip or icon change to reflect an upgraded trap?

I currently have 303 unique pets, and over 200 caught in a pet battle.

As far as I can tell, I still have the original "weak" trap. It looks the same, it sure as heck acts the same (takes 5-6 throws on some pets).

This toon, Sisters of Elune realm.

Is it supposed to change?? Mine has never changed from the very beginning.

What is the trap icon supposed to say? I've had the achievement for Strong Traps since the first day Mists went live, and the tooltip is unchanged. I just checked again on 3 different characters on Baelgun and Anvilmar and it is still unchanged.

Same here. I've seen the patch notes and hotfixes say they're supposed to be fixed, but all of my characters still have the same old basic Trap.

I received the achievement a week or 2 ago, have not seen a tooltip or icon change, and definitely have not seen indications that my trap performs any better than it did before that. This is true across all my toons, which, given that all the pet battle stuff is account-wide, makes sense. WTB strong trap before I finish catching all of them (honestly that ship has pretty much sailed)

The tooltip changed on Doomhammer from 20 to 35%, but the name of the trap still says Trap and the look of the trap changed minimally (the trap went from having a piece of wood from it's frame falling against another part of it to not falling what so ever.) so I'm not sure if that's supposed to be the changed effect from Normal to Strong.
