Move suggestion[edit]

I disagree with the move because I don't think that redirects should ever take priority for the primary page over an actual article. The dragon is called Tequatl the Sunless and the achievement category Tequatl, it is unambiguous and both have links to the other one, so why disambiguate?

Some people using one name as a shortcut for something else should not be a sufficient reason. People often call Claw of Jormag just Jormag and we don't make it a redirect either. Bazaar of the Four Winds is also quite a long name like Tequatl the Sunless, yet it doesn't have shorthand version. Sky Pirates and Secret of Southsun are both achievement categories that could just as easily be used as shortcuts for the respective releases but they aren't. If I want to get to a list of virtues or illusions, Virtues and Illusions don't get me there either. I use AP and Forge as shortcuts for Achievement and Mystic Forge, but if they, say, added a skill called Forge, of course it should describe that instead.

(I realize the move suggestion has been removed, I'm commenting on it anyway.) Calling the Claw of Jormag "Jormag" is completely incorrect, though - Jormag is the elder dragon, the Claw is just a lieutenant, so those two pages should be exactly where they are. In this case "Tequatl" is a short form of Tequatl the Sunless, but they both refer to the same entity. However, I agree with you that the pages should remain where they are - creating a disambiguation wouldn't solve the problem of people going to "Tequatl" looking for the dragon: they would still have an additional click from the disambiguation page. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 12:42, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

After Rising[edit]

Will these achievements still be available for completion after the LS? It looks like it, 'cause it's in the Bosses category & not in the LS one. —Ventriloquist (talk) 15:43, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Read your second second sentence again, you already answered yourself. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 15:45, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
Hah, guess you're right! —Ventriloquist (talk) 19:09, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Secret Achievement[edit]

Theres a secret achievement for Tequatl. Should we list it here?

--Fowk (talk) 21:40, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Well, thats the thing. When does Tequatl even use the Tidal Wave maneuver? In the three kills I've seen, it's never used that move once. Was it removed or just never added? And is it even achievable? If so, I don't think it should be added, unless as trivia. --Vaught (talk) 21:42, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

--Fowk (talk) 21:45, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

That would explain it. We've never had that happen, so that's why we never saw it. If more people report this achievement, then I don't see why we shouldn't add it. --Vaught (talk) 21:47, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
I'd say the screenshot is evidence enough for adding it now. Felix Omni Signature.png 21:49, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
But how should it be added? Do we need to use spoilers or just put it there and say its secret? Also my old contributions should be enough proof I'm not trolling you also, lol. --Fowk (talk) 21:54, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
The dev did just that in the Tequatl preview at Anniversary Bash. There as much cheering.--Relyk ~ talk < 23:12, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
Why isn't it in-game anymore? – Valento msg 01:33, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Did they remove the achievement? I couldn't find a place where it said that this achievement was removed. --Cloned (talk) 14:06, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
The Tidal wave achievement was not apart of these Tequatl achievements. It was a Boss Week achievement, so it is listed in Historical Achievements. Kenrid (talk) 19:54, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Above the waves[edit]

Above the waves achievement not working for a while now. You evade, and evade, different days, different chars and nothing.

Have you tried just jumping? — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 16:32, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

"I Found It!" achievement[edit]

Does interacting with the chest yield any loot? Or does it just trigger the achievement only? --115.134.2.52 19:27, 13 January 2016 (UTC)
