    Achtiim having the same problem as Valaith. Was playing the storyline with my friend and he got the chivo while i havent.

    ValaithYes, must speak to Eris, Cayde and Zavala. Then the quest leaves your quest list. This is what should trigger the achievement but is hasn't. I have 1 more character to try but I'd prefer not to risk it.

    SmackedSilly261It never showed up for me either... I don't know what I am missing. Only 2 people on my friends list got it.

    EtherRabbitsame here nothing unlocked. When I go to orbit, I still show a person at tower I need to go speak to, but when arrive, nothing showing on who to talk to.

    Digital GungnirIf you're having trouble having it pop, log out and then relog into your profile. Then start destiny and head to the tower. The achievement glitched on me when I tried to do it, so relog onto your profile.

    ValaithI've done that numerous times Digital Mj0lnir. It doesn't work.

    iMaginaryyWhile it is a glitch, and thus the workaround may not always work for everyone, be sure that you are actually going to "switch profile" and relogin, and then choose the completed character. Simply quitting destiny and rebooting, or simply switching characters will not work. You must go to "switch profile", hit A, it should take a bit longer to load, then select your character. I can confirm this worked for me.

    iMaginaryy^this should be preferably be done immediately after meeting the requirements. This was an old trick in vanilla Destiny for people that couldn't get "Flawless Raider" to pop upon completion.

    iMaginaryy method works!

    tsmpriusI got Taken King way back when it came out (in 2015 I believe) and I don't think I've ever done any of the quests. Same with the new expansion Rise of Iron.

    In all honesty, I'd rather get these all done this weekend or next weekend so I don't have to worry about Destiny until Destiny 2 is released (I pre-ordered)
