Swamp Rescuer Bugged

I've been trying to chip away at this achievement and it *felt* bugged. Today I snagged some evidence. Basically the NPCs are spawning and not counting towards their respective 'ticks'. Not sure if they're mis-labelled or just not counting at all.

My achievement progress before the encounter (with the encounter in the background)

The NPC name (clearly "Root-House")

My achievement afterwards (Root-House still not ticked)

It's frustrating enough trying to get these RNG achievements when they're working correctly. ZOS please help!

    I can confirm this happened to me as well. I saved a Bright-Throat villager and got credited for a Miredancer villager on one of my characters.

    I am seeing this also. I know I have done several of these, but the only one recorded in my journal is "Root-House Villager" from a couple months ago. I just "rescued Miredancer Villager" but it is still greyed-out in my journal.

    I'm betting this is related to this bug:

    The same thing happens, I get the encounter with Choixth, but it's not logged in my journal so every time is always the "first time".

    Guess what's still broken?

    @ZOS_GinaBruno @ZOS_KaiSchober @ZOS_SarahHecker

    I don't know who needs to know, but it's been literally years and this is still not fixed. Clearly not game breaking, but not cool.

    I FINALLY got the last one during the Murkmire event, and I started playing the day that DLC came out.

    They spawn infrequently enough to make this achievement frustrating on its own, but to have it bugged is so much worse.

    Yep, still bugged. Rescued the Dead-Water villagers and didn't get credit.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno any word on this?

    Coming back to say this happened to me again. Saved a couple of Bright-Throat villagers but was credited with Dead-Water villagers.

    Figured I'd toss a refresher in here since I've been running into this issue all week. I've saved the Root-House villager 6 times now, regardless that he's been named after other tribes. Very frustrating and never a response from Zos. Even an acknowledgement would be nice.

    Lost track of exactly how long I've been working on this achievement, but it's been months in the works.

    I'm having the same issue. :/

    I wonder maybe ZOS (@ZOS_GinaBruno @ZOS_KaiSchober @ZOS_SarahHecker) are really busy with the next chapter for now and will work on this once it's out. But, anyway, it's a pity they do seem like still haven't even noticed this thread.

    Looking forward to finally resolving it and gaining the achievement!

    So, after hours upon hours, day after day, something clicked and it accepted the proper tribes. Hopefully it works out for you guys too!

    At least some you manage to find them even if they're bugged. I've been stuck with the same progression as the initial post for 2 months now. The only things I find at the spawn locations are swamp musk and ambush chests. In my opinion, this achievement, with the elder orcs in Orsinium and the argonian in Summerset are the worst type of content. Please zos, never do this again :(
