I earned the achievement for Strong Traps some time last week. However, the achievement is gone from my achievement page and only the follow up, "Battle Master" (earned 10/07/2012) shows. I still have a normal trap.
Trap Art: Basic / Starter
<< Tooltip >>
Trap Type: Trap
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?
Character - My main is Nadja, but I don't see it when I log into my other characters Horde or Alliance either so it's not character specific for me
I did indeed receive the achievement (Sept. 28)- got the "you've been awarded a strong trap" message and all. Model/icon/tool tip did not change. After the hotfix the model, icon, and tool tip still did not change. I have Zen Pet Hunter & 274 unique pets at this point, still only seeing/using the rickety 20% trap.
--Logged in to add that I'm still not seeing the stronger trap after Tuesday's (Oct. 9) maintenance.

Same trap problem, not updated on the UI/in game art. Achievement earned on 10/03/12
Being a slacker and haven't beaten the tamers yet. Perhaps today I will finally stop being so lazy! ^.^
I earned the achievement the Strong Trap before the hot-fix, and still do not have said trap.
As of yesterday (10-08-12) I have the Master Pet Hunter achievement but still no upgraded trap.
Character: Zamaleiah Realm: Kael'thas
Action Bar Picture: Starter Trap (flimsy boards and nails)
Trap Type: Trap
Chance to Capture: 20%
I have 134 captured pets, but I cant even find the achievement for 50 (which awards the strong trap) in my achievement list. I do have Master Pet Hunter (100 pets captured) and I can track Zen Pet Hunter (200 pets captured). My trap is still a basic trap, no icon change, no tooltip change. This character, Bronzebeard realm. Getting really frustrated with my trap missing 5x in a row sometimes before I can catch something.
Same trap art as before.
Char: Shatterstep or Truestrike earned it.
Here is an interesting note. I was in the beta and my profile is showing all the pets I collected there, not on live. For example, I have a Darkmoon zeppelin on live, but I didn't in the beta. I had 3 rare flayer younglings on beta, but I only have a single poor one on live.
The online profile is confused.
Oh, I should mention that the improved trap never showed up during the beta either.

Trap art, tooltip, and icon have not changed to reflect the upgraded traps.

Earned (on Wyrmrest Accord) my achievement (Going To Need More Traps) on 9/26/12. Earned Zen Pet Hunter on 9/27/12. I don't know which character(s) earned these, as it's one of those that simply says "all your characters receive credit."
I have been wondering the same thing. I have no idea which of my characters earned the [Going to Need More Traps] achievement on 9/25/2012... but I also still have the basic starter trap. I didn't actually realize that there WAS a stronger trap until I saw these posts about it.
As an aside... why does the "catch # of rares" achievements stop at 50? I have caught a LOT more than 50 rares... and am working on replacing all my lower quality catches with rares whenever I can.
Add me to that list Xehonort, Shu'halo. It's still the same trap I had since the start the raggedy wooden one. Going to need more traps Achievement obtained 9/25/2012. Nothing has changed even if the battle pet has little to no health it can still miss 2 to 4 times if not more sometimes.
Just checked this morning and same here. Got both achievements ("Going to Need More Traps" on 9/25/12 and "Zen Pet Hunter" on 9/27/12) but the trap art, tooltip, icon, and capturing difficulty haven't changed from the basic trap.
(as well as my alts)
I do have Strong Traps.
Updated graphic on traps, updated tooltip. Are my odds better? Doesn't feel like it :)
I cannot confirm precisely on the armory (since I advanced to the next tier) but I think I hit the achievement on 10/07.
Hope that helps troubleshooting the issue.
