Does anyone know how much research this takes?
I hit 25 today and I still don't have it.
This achievement is reward for hitting AK25 and unlocks a new artifact color tint.
The first day that anyone can earn this achievement is January 2, 2017. That is if you reached 110 on August 30 (launch day). If you see anyone who has an earlier date for this achievement, report them for cheating and lying to GMs about "lost" artifact pages. I am beyond tired of cheaters and certain "professional" raiders pressuring Blizzard employees and exploits to gain an unfair advantage over the rest of the population base.
Before anyone doubts my date here's the math: it takes 5 days to research AK if you were in the initial batch of players to start research; counting from August 30 to January 2 equals 125 days.
125/5=25. Therefore if you see anyone with a December date or New Year's for this achievement then you know they cheated. Please report them if you find them.
Important: You cannot unlock this tint for your artifact weapon until after you have unlocked the entire tier. In other words: you must complete the Class Order Hall Campaign before this tint will unlock! I found this out the hard way and had to submit a ticket when I got the achieve, but did NOT get the new unlocked appearance! The above information is the Blizz answer to my dilemma.
Will this achievement still be obtainable after patch 7.3? It looks like artifact research will be given automatically to all characters but i hope we can still interact with the loremaster NPC to learn the history and earn the artifact tint.
