[SUGGESTION] Make the Time Trial achievements applicable to normal mode

As of Update 11, the majority of groups running the veteran modes of each of the Craglorn trials usually take at least an hour. With the current achievements being around 30 minutes, the rescaling has made these achievements basically unachievable. Making the normal modes eligible for this achievement would not only make the achievements attainable but may also add some incentive for players to get familiar with the trials in order to prepare for substantial attempts at the veteran modes.

    Getting vAA and vHRC within 33 minutes shouldn't be too much of a problem. But 33 minutes for vSO?

    Also, the scoring system's target completion time (the point at which time changes from a score bonus to a score penalty) is still 10 minutes for vAA/vHRC and 25 minutes for vSO despite the rescaling. It's not a huge issue since every group is subject to the same scoring metric, but it does mean that nobody is ever going to see a final completion time in the score recap display that isn't marked in red and time will always be a score penalty off of the nominal score when calculating the final score. It doesn't make sense changing that now, since there are already scores on the board and since everyone is in the same boat. But perhaps the final score recap could stop showing the time as red if you exceed 10/25 minutes. :p

    Sadly this won't work. Being able to speedrun normal trials doesn't help you to complete vet trials as you will just learn to ignore mechanics that can't be ignored in vet modes. If you want to use normal trials as preperation for vet ones, you need to do very low dps so you actually have a chance to experience all mechanics.

    At the very least, the tooltips of these Achievements need to be changed to make it clear that they must be completed on Veteran mode.

    You were probably not there when speedrun SO was the biggest achievement people had. 33min SO the 1.4 way, ha, that was nearly impossible because for every death 5min were added to the time!

    Nah, 33min is doable.

    Have to agree here. Achievements are "Achievements" for a reason. Everything on this forum consists of PvP players crying that some skills/builds are too strong, and they usually get their way with nerfs that end up impacting pve badly. The other half of the threads in this category are "This dungeon is too hard". 33 minutes was attainable before, and it's attainable now with a good trials guild that runs a lot and has players dedicated to being the best at their role. They're already decreasing the value of VMoL skin by bringing out other skins much easier to get and you can exploit with scaling. If you can't get an achievement, try harder or accept that you just won't have it.

    Achievements still do not say they need to be done on vet mode.
