Cross-faction achievement problem: Taming Kalimdor

100 Human Paladin
Greetings achievement forums,

I have a problem with a pet battle achievement and wanted to know if someone has experienced similar issues.

I've done the taming quests on my alliance character up to the grand master of Cataclysm and I have the achievements for Taming Eastern Kingdoms, Taming Outland and Taming Northrend. The taming quests also take you through 5 trainers on Kalimdor, but you need to beat 12 tamers for the achievement.

I tried going to the individual trainers to get the achievement and unlock Kalimdor dailies, but they would not offer to fight my alliance character. So I faction changed an alt into a horde character and did the quest line for those remaining trainers. This is how my Taming Kalimdor achievement looks now:

All things are checked but it did not complete and I don't get the dailies. Anybody else have this problem or was able to fix it?

I have the exact same issue, just with eastern kingdoms.
I logged onto a lower alliance character accepted the quests, and since they're account bound my horde char automatically got it as well. I completed them all, and have ticks on every name (just like your pic), but no achievement completed? I don't get why though??

I have the same problem as above for me eastern kingdoms looks bugged as well then I made a ticket and I got the following answer:

I had the opportunity to review your ticket and I understand that there's some concern over the Taming Kalimdor achievement. First, I want to say I appreciate that you've brought this to our attention; and second I'd like to apologize for any undue wait in responding to this ticket. We're a bit swamped right now in the wake of Mists of Pandaria's launch ^-^;

This is a horde-focused achievement - you've acquired the alliance version, which grants credit for both:

I hope this clears things up a little bit :3

I hope you can do something with this as well.

edit in my opinion its still bugged since I cant redo them on a horde char...
(I made a DK on hellscream and did)

Battle Pet Tamers: Eastern Kingdoms ( it
and Battle Pet Tamers: Kalimdor (
but I dont get any followups to talk with any of the ather trainers as well as I cant re accept the quest on any ather alliance char

I have this same issue and its driving me insane. I defeated all 12 of the masters, the were all checked green. No achievement, then I happened to relog and all of them turned grey again showing that I haven't defeated any of them? Does that mean I have to do ALL OF THEM AGAIN? Seriously, I really do not want that.

The achievement in question is Horde only.

Note: Taming Kalimdor is Horde only, and Taming Eastern Kingdoms is Alliance only. This was done via hotfix so the UI in-game will not update until 5.1, which is why you may see completion swap between the two. Not to worry though, the data is all there and will be resolved with the 5.1 patch.
