View Full Version : Sundered Splitpaw - Anvilpaw's Grotto - Do-able at 70?

<p>Worked all the original Splitpaw back in the day, tried the Anvilpaw's Grotto a couple of times - got as far as Anvilpaw but raid wiped both times. So it's been sat on the backburner ever since. Annoyingly though, every time I finish a quest and I don't have another open in the same category, my quest journal / helper defaults back to the "A Darkened Shard" quest - it's taunting me - saying "I'm still here" !!</p><p>So enough was enough - grabbed some guildies who also had the quest unfinished and headed off to Splitpaw. Now I know it is a X2 raid, but figured it would all be grey so one group of level 70's should walk it. We weren't bothered about drops, xp or aa, just wanted to get the quest finished and out of our journals.</p><p>So we zoned in - 1 group - sent 3 people one way, 3 people the other. Solved the 1st riddle (right path) no problem, barrier closed behind the 3 of us - other 3 went through to the new area (left path.) Only once they got there, there were three platforms and only one statue. I forget the name, but statue was named something beginning with Q and was labelled "the resourceful" or something. And that's as far as we could get.</p><p>Anyone else done this recently ? Is it bugged ? Did we do something wrong with the puzzles ? Did we actually need to be in two physically seperate groups ? Is it possible to do it all with just level 70's and the zone being greyed-out ?</p>

You can do it if you have a conjourer with call of hero spell. Get your group sans/ conjourer to first puzzle loc, barrier falls, then have conjourer summon everyone back, rinse and repeat. Make sure conj has master pet though because even at 70, the NPC dps is pretty brisk.

Yeah, when we once did it, there were 3 statutes at second riddle. Now at our last tries there always was only one statue up, so it basically was impossible for us to proceed. There was a thread about this bug on forums already. Sadly, it never got adressed by any of the "officials"...

So if I understand right, that means that at this point in time no-one can complete the Splitpaw darkened shard quest to finish the adventure pack content? O.o</p><p>Considering they are still promoting the adventure packs, kind of a big bug to have no response ...</p><p><EDIT> One day I'll learn to type proper ...</p>

I'm curious about this one too. Devs?

05-16-2007, 11:47 PM
Still broke as of 5/16/07.  Only one idol at second puzzle.  Please fix this devs.

05-22-2007, 05:51 AM
Yeah, tried it on 5/19 as well. Same result, 2 statues missing, zone undoable Since devs don't seem to be interested in ever fixing this, I guess all we can do now is to warn everybody to NOT buy the Splitpaw expansion since the main questline can NOT be finished. =(

<p>Ran into the same problem today as well.  2 of the 3 idols were missing on the first riddle along the left path.  Submitted a bug report about it.</p><p>Did you all submit a /bug when you ran into the problem, or just post about it on the forums?</p>

06-21-2007, 12:55 PM
First off, tried it today. Only one statue down left path.Question, is this a level issue? Is it stopping us cause we're over-level or is it a bug?How does COH help? Group Right can't leave room one cause Group Left can't finish the puzzle. Even if COH gets group right out of locked room, how does group right get into room/puzzle two?

10-17-2007, 12:42 AM
<p>This is still an issue. Only 1 statue on the left path...so right team has to solve...then the left team moves up and the fires won't light because of another bug.</p><p>bug reporting this.</p>

Almost 8 months now and still broken without any response by the Devs?

10-17-2007, 01:41 PM
<p>This questline has been in my journal for a very very very long time and it seems I will never be able to finish it due to a zone bug.  I have seen several posts on this topic over the past year or two and never any official response from SOE.  </p><p>This zone needs to be fixed!</p>

*necros* As of 4th November, this zone is STILL BUGGED

I've seen a good three or four different posts about this zone being bugged.  No response from any dev, I really don't know what they are thinking. Its been broke for a year.

02-04-2008, 03:59 PM
<p>I am necroing this post...</p><p>This quest is STILL not fixed...</p><p>we took an x2 of mid 30s in there last night, there are 2 missing idols on the left path and when the group that goes right completes their first puzzle and opens the gate to the left's second puzzle, the fires wont light.</p><p>OK SOE..>Fix this please!!  We have people that want to get this quest line done!!</p>

02-06-2008, 01:58 PM
Got stuck in the same place on it a long time ago. Took a full group of 70s in there. Anyone try w/ level 50s or mentored? Maybe it has a level requirement?Either way, I wish it would get fixed, everytime I see a screenshot guess what quest they have active? lol

02-06-2008, 03:13 PM
<p>I've taken a toon in there at the proper level to check for the statues with no success. I've not tried a full riad group at level. Hard to motivate people for what appears a hopeless cause. I wanna know who ate the statues.</p><p>BTW, if you zone in and get stuck, please /bug it. Mebbe if enough of us cry, they'll take note. </p>

I tried to go through this zone recently with a guilmate and the first puzzle down the left path is STILL broken. I have never seen any response from any SOE dev, rep or peon to this problem anywhere on the forums. They're either ignoring it or don't care, because I can't believe that none of them have seen any of the posts or bug reports about it in the last year. <img src="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/images/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" width="15" height="15" />

I can not for the life of me understand why no one from SOE can respond to this issue?  This is a product you sell, stand behind it and fix the problem.  I can not believe it has been over a year and still nothing. It is not right that you can not even have the general decency to just post saying "Hey we are aware of it and will be looking into it, expect a fix in update 47 or something."<div></div><div>I enjoy this game, but I can see why people get frustrated, not even an acknowledgement of the problem.</div><div></div><div></div>

<p>Not only is this one broken, but the Bloodlines quest for me was broken by switching factions.</p><p>I can't understand why they won't respond, especially since I paid for these two add packs, and now can't get to do them.</p>

05-11-2008, 12:37 AM
More than a year now, still the same bug - May 2008This is beyond a joke guys ...

05-11-2008, 06:25 AM
at this point just auto finishing the quest would be good if the zone is never going to be playable agen.

06-06-2008, 10:44 AM
<p>Amen to the above poster...</p>

06-06-2008, 11:30 AM
No, I don't wanna auto-complete the quest, or delete it. I want to FINISH it <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> I've bugged it before, but in honor of this thread, I'm gonna /bug it again when I get in game.

This past weekend we were able to finish this raid.  I don't know how long it has been fixed, or if indeed it was truly broken for everyone, but as of June 7 it was working for us on Kithicor.  Apparently the quest has been updated too at some point as completing the A Darkened Shard quest rewarded us with a Charm slot item.

06-11-2008, 08:32 PM
thanks for the info there on that, will need to try a run with my guild and see if it works will post result. fingers crossed guys <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

The charm slot item from A Darkened Shard - is this the item that grants water walking?  It is not new.  I received it about 1.5-2 years ago.

06-12-2008, 11:37 AM
For some reason, I was thinking that Charm Slots were added after the game launched, but that's not the case.  Thinking back I remember Tish Tickers' charm slot lanterns and they predate DoF.  Not sure where I got that idea from.
