okay, what is that last cheevo? like not taking damage while beating chaos on hard not bad enough? why add the gun restriction on top? was whoever made this cheevo drunk off their ass at the time or did this make it in from the bonus set by accident?

With the right strategy, this achievement is completely accessible. The hardest step is the blue dragon. The second boss shape is fully breakable https://youtu.be/HEgq5cS7awY

As conquistas de nao levar dano em chefes ate que nao sao tao dificeis, basta conhecer um pouco as souls e decorar o padrao direitinho de cada chefe que fica moleza.

Concordo, os desafios dos chefes ate que sao divertidos. O que dificulta e o level cap junto, com seu ataque mais fraco as lutas demoram mais. O unico que eu nao gostei de fazer foi o do Headhunter, por causa da terceira forma

Mastered! The only ones I didn't like doing were Path of the Hunter (thankful Ripper soul is allowed, that one is rough), Path of the Predecessor (not too hard, Legion just takes FOREVER to die thanks to your relatively poor gear) and The Power to Rule (easy, just takes a while). I didn't dislike Sword or Whip, but it was pretty tough. But other than that, this was a pretty fun set, and one can tell there was careful thought placed into it

I dunno where to mention a bug exactly, but if you look at my userpage right now, it only shows the first 8 icons. (I may delete this comment once fixed.)

This happens when the set is undergoing type of maintenance, the achievements temporarily taken out of the main set and "downgraded" to an unofficial set, but after everything adjusted, they return
13 Jan 2022
13:38
I wonder if we should have a "undergoing maintenance" flag at the top of a page that we could set for when a set has a bunch of demoted achievements

Except it didn't seem to affect other profiles I saw, I think, I couldn't say who, but on other profiles I think i remember seeing all 55 listed, whereas for me there's only 8.
13 Jan 2022

It shows 55 on your profile for me too. Maybe it's a browser error on your end?
13 Jan 2022

Now it does once again, but I can assure you it didn't merely minutes ago... :P Odd...

that's really wrong :S can confirm that happens here too. Definitely a webpage/browser/data issue of some sort - we need to isolate it a little to start getting a fix

Probably something wrong in RA's PHP API ?
