Epic kill in creature stage; no acheivement awarded

Not sure if this is a bug or what. The epic in question is "Mr. Pip"

Also you might need to get the last hit for it to count.

That is most likely what happened. I trained the beast into my creature's nest to let the rest of my creatures gnaw on it while I spammed spit. I'm guessing one of them got the killing blow. Poop.

Our DevTest team is trying to repro this.

I've gotten this Achievement before (while we were working on Achievements) so I know it's possible, but we're trying some different things to see if we can figure out your problem.

I did an identical thing and did not get the achievement, I also got one epic down to 200ish health and another epic came along and finished him off >:(  (It took me a while to calm down.)

I strongly suspect that the last blow defines who killed the creature, so despite doing 99% of the damage if you are not the creature to land the killer blow then tough luck.
