Is anyone else having issues with achievements not popping? When i first started the game I didn't have an issue but recently I beat the Bed of Chaos and also collected all pyromanices but neither unlocked for me. I wanted to test things out and discovered a covenant but it took backing out 4 times in the dialogue to get that achievement to pop 15 minutes later. Any helpful tips or am i just screwed over?

I've been playing through on a 2nd account after completing the achievements with no issues on my primary account. I had issues with achievements not popping, too. Rite of Kindling popped after defeating Pinwheel in playthrough 2. I'll have to see if ringing Quelaag's Bell, discovering Daughter of Chaos, and getting to Anor Londo a second time causes those achievements to finally pop as well. Not sure what to expect for the Pyromancy and Sorcery achievements since I already found them all. Just have to wait it out :/

So I don't play Dark Souls but have run into this issue on other games (where certain achievements won't unlock). I was able to eventually unlock the missing achievements by going to that specific game's Game Hub, then the Achievements tab. They will pop after the tab fully loads.

Yeah I've tried resetting my console, going to the games hub, checking even that particular achievement and still nothing.. I just hope they unlock down the road. I'm at the end and don't want to finish and start a new game if it's not going to register my end choice achievement

Yes I have the same problem, these 3 achievements not unlock for me

- Ring the Bell (Quelaag's Domain)
- Covenant: Chaos Servant
- Covenant: Warrior of Sunlight

I'm go on with my playthrough, I'll try to unlock them on my second one

I had that issue with the Bed of Chaos, Pyromancy achievement, and one of the ending achievements last night, but it caught up. Just keep playing through and it should pop up.

The unmissable ones unlocked for me the second time through the game (Rite of Kindling, Ring Quelaag's Bell, Reach Anor Londo). I had to travel from Anor Londo back to Sen's a couple of time sfor that one. Not sure what to do about all Sorceries and Pyromancies and I have each that is needed and those achievements did not pop. Not sure if reacquiring a specific one in NG+ will trigger them to pop or if I need to collect them all on a new character.

About 5 days ago I rang the first bell and did not get the achievement. I switched my xbox off and went to bed. The next day I logged back in and the achievement had unlocked overnight. Yesterday I killed pinwheel and should have got the kindling achievement but that too did not unlock. Unlike the first time however the achievement did not unlock overnight and as of right now I don't have it.

I got all the miracles 48 hours ago and nothing yet, had a similar issue on Sega Genesis Classic but the achievements popped 1 hour later. I just finished the rare weapons achievement and both the miracles & The Dark Soul (got all achievements) are still locked. I try to get a couple of miracles but nothing, at this point, either I hope the achievements unlock later or I start all over again on a fresh save.

EDIT : After starting a new character on the same file & buying the first miracle available (Heal), both achievements unlocked! I've heard from some people that dropping/picking up a weapon again (in case of max upgrade achievement) made the game/Xbox registered the achievement again. Since you can't drop spell/miracle, starting a new character from the scratch and getting a spell/miracle again works the same way.

I hadn't been having any problems and then the achievement for beating Priscilla failed to pop up, which sucks since that was pretty much the only reason I fought her.

The Knight's Honor achievement isn't unlocking for me. Really frustrating because it is the last one angry

Edit: I put all the weapons needed in my bottomless box and back in my backpack. It popped after that.

I'm on new game plus and after fighting bed of chaos a second time it finally popped however I've still been re-buying pyromancies and still haven't had it pop so wondering if I'll have to make a whole new character

I had problems with the spell achievements unlocking on an alternate account. I started a new character and ran down to Blighttown and grabbbed the toxic mist pyromancy and the achievement popped.

Yes, these 3 did not unlock for me.
Forest Covenant
Abyss Walking (for defeating Sif)
and defeating Priscilla.
I went back a few days later and join the forest covenant again and it unlocked then, but apparently the other 2 will have to wait until a 2nd playthrough.

Seriously considering putting this game down for now until there is some resolution. Having to start from scratch to get some of the collectible achievements would be awful.

I also had the Forest Covenant not pop for me, but I ended my last play session in Darkroot any and was able to go back and talk to Alvina again and it popped after a few seconds of waiting on the YES / NO decision menu.

Does looking at the achievements in the game hub not force them to pop like sometimes works for other games?

^I tried the usual things to try to get them to pop. Such as cold boot and looking at the ach in the guide, hub, and xbox.com. No luck.

I've had three not unlock (Warriors Of Sunlight, Sun Princess and Lord Vessel) despite unlocking Anor Londo in between them. Anyone know if I need a second playthrough or hard reset to unlock them?

Update: I managed to unlock the 2 covenant ones by hard reseting the console and going to the areas you join them, and they unlocked. The Lord Vessel is still locked so it may unlock in a couple of days or in a new playthrough.

Gwyndolin and the Sorceries achievements did not unlock for me. Going on a couple days now. Hard reset, game hub, pulled up achievements in-game, revisited Gwyndolin area, etc.

Any ideas?

Start a new character or go onto ng+ and obtain any sorcery. Try buying one from Rickert in New Londo and if that doesn’t do it, try finding one, the easiest probably being Remedy in Blighttown.

As for gwyndolin, it’ll probably pop upon killing him in ng+.

So, update: sorceries achievement still hasn’t popped on NG+ after buying several duplicates. Haven’t tried Gwyndolin again yet (waiting for server maintanance to end, just cause).

What’s the quickest sorcery pick up for a new game? Going to start a new character and see if I can grab the closest/easiest one.

Edit: Gwyndolin unlocked on NG+ after fight. Started new character and picked up Remedy in Blighttown - nothing. Started a new character a second time, picked up Remedy, and Sorceries achievement popped. What a shitshow. Thanks for the tips, though!
