Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Achievements

Murder Most Fowl

Kill 50 Pteryx.  

Pteryx are bird like creatures that you'll encounter throughout the DLC. There's at least 21 of these enemies during the main quest alone. There are a bunch more of them in the sewers and undersewers. They'll respawn at the Eryie Peak location as well.

People have reported this achievement not popping for them. It's thought that this might be like the "Exterminator" Scav achievement from the Dead Kel DLC, where if you one-shot the enemy, it doesn't register the kill. So make sure you don't use your most powerful abilities/spells on these enemies.

Go to Eryie Peak and the Air shrine for most of them

Just like the Exterminator achievement, this one is a little screwy.

You may have to kill more than 50. Mine popped at 60. Not sure if one hit kills messes up your count.

There are quite a few (at least 10-15) in Nerotelos, the dungeon directly east of Nyxaros on the map (the northern Nyxaros entrance). Got my last few there.

I've killed over 200 of these damn birds and still no achievement. I've tried reinstalling the game and the DLC and starting over but still no luck. If anybody knows or has heard of a fix to this please let me know.

To #8, or if anyone else is wondering, there are two possibilities of why it won't pop for you:

1.) It's glitching. This happened to me. Delete BOTH DLC's and then clear your system cache, to delete the update for the game. The update is what glitches it, so don't redownload the update. Then download both DLC's again, Legend of Kel first, then Teeth of Naros. Then continue from your last save and kill 50 Pteryx again. My achievement popped when I hit 38 kills though. ;)

2.) Make sure you're killing them with regular weapons, nothing fancy like spells that will kill them in one shot. If you one-shot them, for whatever reason, it won't count. So use a weapon that you have to hit them a few times (at least) with, before they die. This will count and you'll get the achievement within 50 kills.
