Orsinium Patron Achievement is Broken

Helio_Aviatik
Bug report was submitted. Problem was reported in earlier discussions by others but were closed after more than a year even though problem still exists.

Gamer tag Helio_Aviatik, character Iidrissa, PS4-NA

I'm also having problems completing this achievement. When interacting with the Malacath Priest and Batasha no credit is received. The City Solicitor and Trinimac Priest registered sometimes. I'm stuck at 3/15.

    Not sure about NA, but EU description clearly says "City Solicitor", and it unlocked only with 15 solicitors for me...

    Other wiki's and posts elsewhere have stated all four npc's give credit (possibly they were wrong, that's what I'm trying to find out. If they were correct there is a bug, if not, previous posts were incorrect.) As I stated above of the 3/15 that have tallied for me 2 were City Solicitors and 1 was a Malacath Priest. Did you try interacting with either priest or Batasha?

    Yes, as stated above - only solicitors give progress to the achievement for me.

    It's been broken for 2 years now... I don't think they are interested in fixing it if I'm honest... let's face facts, if after 2 years they haven't addressed this issue, you think they will now?

    The achievement only works for donations to the solicitors, the other random encounters are just flavour or have their own achievements.

    You can note their locations with some maps online or add-ons if playing on PC then run circuits of the zone to look for them.

    It’s not broken. Any posts claiming that you get credit for any of the 4 spawn types are wrong. Flatly wrong. Only the City Solicitor gives credit toward the achievement. The other 3 are just random spawns that give the Buff of their god.

    Just like the other random spawn locations. Interacting with a Firestarter NPC doesn’t count towards your Give to the Poor achievement, and interacting with a Malakath Priest doesn’t count towards the Patron achievement.

    The Malacath Priest did indeed give me credit for the Orsinium Patron, so something is definitely broken.

    As harsh as it may sound:

    None of the other 3 have ever counted for me for the City Solicitor ("Orsinium Patron") achievement.
    It also clearly states whom to donate to. Its the only one talking about the city.

    So far there is one person with 1 occurence of 'the trinimac priest worked as well', so its much more likely this one is human error.

    I've been on and off this achievement for years now, and might not have met them for months. But whenever I did, donating (to the right NPC) counted towards the achievemnt.

    If there is anything broken, its the spawn rates. Or that only 1 player can interact before they despawn. All spawn locations are known, but circling between them for multiple hrs might not give 1 occurance.
