Most Achievements Should Be Fixed Now

The 'broken' achievements (or most of them, it seems) should have been fixed with today's update.

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to pop in here and let you all know that we deployed an update to our back end services today that we believe should “heal” a fair amount of the issues that some of you in this thread have been reporting with achievements that have become stuck or “broken” since the game was released. 

Without going too deep into the technical details, basically what we did was implement a system that looks at your account upon login to try and identify any achievements for which you have fulfilled all the criteria, but have not been awarded the actual achievement. If the system identifies a broken achievement, the server will attempt to immediately “heal” your broken achievement and grant it to you. I say “try” because each server will only attempt to run a certain number of instances of this healing operation at one time. What this means is it may take several logins to heal any achievements that are broken on your account in this way. This is expected behavior, and just because you haven’t seen any changes to your achievements just yet, doesn’t mean that the fix did not work for you at all.

I know that many of you have been waiting for this for a long time, but it is somewhat likely that this fix may not resolve every single achievement issue that every player has. This particular fix is specifically targeted at achievements with tracked criteria (basically this means requirements that were tracked with checkboxes). Also as I said above, this fix may not take effect for everyone immediately. What this means is that we are going to need to let the dust settle over the next few days to see what other types of issues remain.

So, where do we go from here? At this point, we encourage you to simply play as you normally would for the next several days and see what happens with your achievements. If you are still experiencing erroneous behavior or are missing a particular achievement that you believe is broken, we encourage you to reply to this thread and let us know about it. Include detailed information if you can such as the full achievement name, when you earned it, and what the exact problem with it is with as thorough a description as possible. Steps are good too, if you have them! 

I’ll be watching this thread very closely, and will likely be popping in here again in the days and weeks to come. Thank you all again for your patience and all of your reports about this.

There is currently a bug that is causing some Legendary crafting materials to continue to drop after the patch.

In the meantime, thanks for your reports! (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Fuad's Journal Will Start Dropping From Fuad With 2.1
Fuad's Journal does not drop off Fuad. The journal is part of the meta achievement called "Judge of Character", it does however not drop off Fuad. I've killed him 10 times now thinking it's a rare drop but it shouldn't be. Please fix this.
Patch 2.0.6 was mostly for balance changes and while it had a few bug fixes, this particular fix did not make it in. The good news, however, is that we do have a fix in place for this coming in our next major content update, patch 2.1.0! I obviously can't make any promises as when specifically that update will arrive, but I can say that we are currently hard at work on the new content for that patch, and that we are doing our very best to get it out the door as soon as possible.

Thanks a ton for all of the reports about this, and we really appreciate your patience regarding this issue. Thank you!

Edit: In the meantime, I also went ahead and added this issue to our known issues list. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Theorycraft Livestream This Thursday, June 12

Our own moderator MrMonstrosity will be part of the stream, so it's worth watching!

Mark your calendars, nephalem! We're happy to announce we'll be livestreaming this Thursday, June 12 to celebrate our first round of Theorycraft Thursday builds. 
Here are all the devilish details:

  • What: Our first Theorycraft Thursday livestream
  • Where: http://www.twitch.tv/diablo
  • When: Thursday, June 12 @ 3:00 p.m. PT to 4:00 p.m. PT
  • Who: Brandy "Nevalistis" Camel, Stephen "Leviathan" Stewart, Travis "Da Man" Day, and Nolan "Monstrous" Mitchell
  • Why: Because Ghostcrawler promised us a pony aliens why not?

While the winner of our community vote, the electrifying Wizard BrvzerX, was unable to attend, our runner-up, the commanding Crusader Leviathan, has stepped up to the challenge. Be sure to tune in to our official Diablo Twitch channel where I'll be joining forces with game designer Travis Day and Community MVP Monstrous to discuss the finer points of Leviathan's Zoosader build—and smash some demon face in the process. 
We hope to see you there!
Can't tune in? No problem. We'll have a VOD of the stream available later this week so you can watch our successes, our (well, probably my) failures, and bask in the glory of all our sweet, sweet loot over and over again.
