Harrison Jones becomes a lot more trivial as one major part of the meta achievement is removed.
"Exploration Mission Master" removed from "Don't Call Me Junior" meta achievement. UI not updated until a client patch. #HarrisonJones

Originally, you had to complete a number of exploration missions as well as all six relic hunter quests available from your Town Hall. Trading in 5x Restored Artifacts for exploration missions will still help if you just want the achievement but I can’t say I’m entirely happy about this change. Of course, I haven’t been lucky enough to see him in any of my garrisons so that’s another thing I’m not too happy about.
Since archaeology and relic hunting both require time and effort, I was willing to put in the playtime but if you need to visit another person’s garrison just to see the npc you want, this isn’t great design. Numerous people have resorted to using group finder or trade which isn’t a particularly fun concept but valid for those who have no other option. I just don’t think it’s all that ‘social’ when it’s a random you probably wouldn’t see or talk to again.
So what do you think? Are you happy about this change or do you think this is another way of making the game #easymode?
On a side note, Relic and Bounty missions are no longer being offered. Yep, that’s been hotfixed as well.
