The "Underdepths Saga" signature quest line is available for players level 100+.<br /> <br />Speak with Virun D'Xyafin in Neriak, or Dangle Springbolt in Greater Faydark to begin your adventure!<br /> <br />Please post any feedback or bugs you may find with the signature quest line in this thread. This will help us keep it as organized as possible and get the feedback to the appropriate designer.<br /> <br />Also, be sure to include Your Alignment (evil/Neriak or good/Kelethin), Quest Name, Who gave the quest, and What your journal says when submitting issues.<br /> <br />~ Kaitheel

A couple things to keep in mind with these quests: There are no RoI (region of interest) markers on the map for quests, and you'll find that there are few sparkles on objects. Instead, quest objects are signs, so you'll be able to see them by mousing over them. The goal is to make questing less auto-pilot, requiring a bit more attention, and encouraging collaboration. With that said, if you find a quest step that does not give group updates, and you think it should, let us know.<br /> <br />~ Kaitheel

Kaitheel 10-21-2015 02:46 AM

Some changes headed to Beta, based upon today's feedback:<br /><ul><li>Many dialogue and journal typos corrected</li><li>Underdepths Saga: Into Darkness - Journal gives direction for Ironblood Fungus Farm</li></ul>I am not sure when these changes will make it to Beta, though I suspect it will be on Thursday, 10/22.<br /><br />Thank you all for jumping on, and giving feedback so quickly!<br /><br />~ Kaitheel

So, the instance Algorithm for Destruction, required by the quest Zaphardt's Defenders is down until the 26th as well?

Bloodguts 10-21-2015 04:38 AM

It's Pillar Time quest is broken. Cannot be go past the 4th quest update of killing the Aberrants. No matter how many aberrants you kill that spawn from clicking the pillar, the quest will not update.

Soresha 10-22-2015 12:32 AM

So... all instances are down until 26th so that people can focus on quest and population testing. But actually we can't get on with testing the main signature quest line (and checking respawn rates of quest mobs etc). We're all blocked from proceeding, stuck waiting for the first of the quest instances.<br /> <br />Uhh guys... want to rethink this one and let us into just the solo quest versions of these instances. if possible please? <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" />

Kaitheel 10-22-2015 01:15 AM

SooooOOOooo... Due to popular demand, we're hoping to make a compromise and get the solo versions of the dungeons open on Friday, 10/23.<br /> <br />~ Kaitheel

In one of the subquests, "Scanning the Seals," after the step of "Scan the sealed door in the north of the sublevel Access Antechamber", I placed the scanner on the north door, and next update said the north door again instead of saying the south door (where the correct scanner actually is).<br /> <br />I submitted a bug report too.

the spider in Maldura: algorithm for destruction is not dropping the quest item cabalbox access pin to progress the quest

Buco 10-25-2015 11:56 AM

Maldura: Algorithms of Destruction:<br />- Cabalbox access pin does not drop, also searched the whole zone after Blackbolt is dead for a while<br />- Phylacterions (item are no zone flagged) are removed if you zone out or crash, which makes the quest impossible to proceed

Xianthia 10-25-2015 12:59 PM

How are you folks actually killing the spider (X-O Arachmec) in Algorithm for Destruction? I can get the mob to approximately 18% and it stops taking damage. His adds drop <span style="text-decoration: underline">an electro-charged battery</span> but I've not been able to use it on this mob. Any help/hints would be appreciated. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" /><br /> <br />I have other updates for the quest so far.

The following changes have been made internally:<br /><ul><li>Underdepths Saga: Zaphardt's Defenders - Undertook sentry upgrade plans respawn much faster.</li><li>Underdepths Saga: Zaphardt's Defenders - Quest now recognizes the death of the X-O Arachmech successfully.</li></ul>When these changes hit the Beta server they should be included in the update notes.<br />~ Kaitheel

Jazzalyn 10-26-2015 01:29 AM

The Disturbed Dhalgars that spawn in the "Tranquil Halls" takes too long to respawn in my opinion. I grouped up with another person to take them out and we were both sitting there waiting for them to respawn for a good few minutes - enough that we ran off to kill bats to get experience while killing time. This might be a bottle neck when expansion releases. Maybe they could have a spawn time closer to the mushroom men at the farm?<br /> <br />Additionally, for Underdepths Saga: Zaphardt's Defenders - the undertok sentry upgrade plans are not shared when you pick them up, but both players get the undertol sentry upgrade parts.

Jrel 10-26-2015 08:11 AM

Zaphart's Defenders: The pages also could respawn quicker please. There's only been 8 spawn points that I can find, that leaves 4 still to do. Waiting on 24 minutes now for the 9th-12th.

Elowith 10-26-2015 04:38 PM

With the heroics currently unaccessible, how do I know if I'm done with the Signature questline? I have two bits that end in heroics - Underdepths Sage:Zaphardt's... and Umbrite Locked Tight. I know that this isn't meant to be a completely sequential sig line, but some sort of indication of progress would really be helpful.

in algorithm for destruction (adv solo) can't find the last disabled undertok sentry to activate it. radar shows where it placed but actually it not visible, seemed to be hide in textures

Alienor 10-27-2015 09:21 PM

US: Eyes of Ironshadow: The maps in DoA are not trackable. Could this be changed? The locs will eventually end up at the wiki anyway. Additionally I am having a hard time to find the last two pages.
