This is kind of a lame achievement. You don't have to loot the item, you don't even need to be in the group that loots them. A friend who has them can "hand" them all to you, you'll get the achievement and then you can return them. So WHAT exactly have you ACHIEVED? The whole meaning of the word "achievement" is that you've ACCOMPLISHED a task that took some time and effort.

For example, consider if collectibles didn't require clicking them (and essentially destroying them) to get the achievement credit. EVERYBODY could qualify for every collectible achievement just by passing them around. Yeah, I get that they don't permit this because there are substantial AA rewards to completing collections, and NO such rewards for THIS kind of achievement but my point it still valid. Make SOME kind of effort required to get the credit. I also understand that players can BUY collectibles, but at least they had to earn the plat to pay for them. That can be a GREAT amount of effort with the Bazaar prices some players ask for the rarer collectibles.

Reward: None


Not strictly true since you get bragging rights and there is some prestige in completing Achievements. It's yet another set of "quests" and ultimately the game is all about completing quests, however long it takes!

To get this achievement you have to have the nine hats in your possession. It is enough to have them in your bag. You do not have to use (and attune) them.
What will not working: Use them on your head item and then deleting them to save space. You must own all at the same time.
