Instead of just playing and waiting to see what challenges you’re progressing with, it would be nice if there was a way to see it via a menu. Having to wait until you reach certain progress benchmarks sometimes makes it unclear as to how far you’ve come with a particular challenge; and if there’s something you need to alter about your playstyle. As an example, the Attikus Challenge for punching Rendain in the face.
I second this in all honesty. I’m done with most challenges I care about, but it’s certainly a good idea. As for Attikus’s lore I think it does tell you each time you get one (maybe every other one?). I finished it a while ago so I’ve kinda forgotten.
