[BUG] "Going to need more traps" Achievement

90 Undead Priest

I've been having a lot of trouble trapping high-level pets even though I got this achievement a couple of days ago. Today, I noticed that the achievement is now missing altogether from my Achievements panel. It's not under Pet Battles, Collect, Battle or Level. I even checked Feats of Strength to see if it got moved, but it's not there either. Need a GM to advise if this achievement has been removed from the game or if it is just currently missing?

I also posted this to Wowhead: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=6556#comments:id=1725257

That achievement is part of a series, did you check under your Zen Pet Hunter achievement to see if it's listed there?

I'm having the same problem and I have the Zen Pet Hunter achievement as well. It's not there either.

I also blew through the capture quests; finished Going to Need More Traps on the first day, and got to Zen Pet Hunter on 10/1/2012. Never got a single trap upgrade. (My tool tip still says +20% per failed attempt)

My buddy, who went at a moderate pace, just finished Going to Need More Traps today, and got the Strong Trap (+25% per attempt). So it seems like they intended us to have the upgrades, but that it was bugged until recently.

Blizz... please let us know how to enable this upgrade... it's getting really hard to trap the higher lvl pets with the old starter trap!

This same thing happened to me with my fiance. I got the achievement with no improvement and a few days later (after the fix) he got the achievement and the upgrade. I figured after the fix I'd have mine upgraded too, but it's no go. =(

I have the same issue. I completed the achieve before my wife and when she completed it today she got the stronger trap. I still don't have it.

I'm having this issue as well. Haven't seen anyone else with the stronger trap myself yet, but it's quite annoying that some people are getting it and not others.

I'm lacking the stronger trap as well, even though I do have the achievement.

@Rhykes, Thank you, you're right! The achievement is now bundled under the "Zen Pet Hunter" achievement. However, the Strong Traps rewards is still malfunctioning. Sad face.

I saw that it said we were supposed to get this hotfixed in the 5.05 that hit today but I, too, do not have any traps over 20% even though I have the achievement. Is there something I need to do to activate it?

Same here. Still don't have achievement. Trap looks no different than it ever has.

Confirmed, still no trap upgrade. According to this tweet (https://twitter.com/mumper/status/254487245749370880) the fix was meant to be retroactive, but it seems there's still work left to do.

Fortunately I have lots of other things to do, but this bug has put a hold on my plans to collect some higher-level pets. :-(
