I've got a few more bug fixes coming to the signature line with the next Beta update:
  • Legacy of Power: Through Storms and Mists - Giving Karana the reformed Staff of The Rainkeeper now updates for the group.
  • Legacy of Power: Secrets in an Arcane Land - Crafting the "Esoteran Reading Stone" now only requires one Ignus Manaflare.
You all keep finding more issues than I can handle in a single day. It's great! Thank you so much for this help!

ugh
Legacy of Power: Glimpse of the Hereother

Id guess - An item that crossed over to into this time stream, find a topless chest full of gold in the Pakiat Bluffs area. The update could be hard to see shiny on top of the chest or on the ground next to books.

the search for item is painful, giving me 'flashbacks' to access to Poets Palace quests. Increase how quickly this item respawns.

how is this search painful in any way? There are a handful of platforms to search in the Bluffs. It's very shiny even on low setting graphics ( i tested on extreme performance and extreme quality settings). My guess would be that youre not getting the update as fast as you would like. Looking for 3 minutes and not finding the update does not equal to "search for item is painful". The one fact I would agree with in your post is the comment regarding Poet's Palace quests being quite painful back when that content were relevant. Keep searching and I can guarantee you will find your "ding". Besides, why are you rushing? The signature line cannot be completed yet anyway.

I think the point of "painful" in this instance is referring to what this will be like on live with everyone searching for an update that is "camped", respawns slowly, and will likely be a roadblock finishing the sig line in its current state.

I think the point of these posts is to provide helpful feedback. I for one also believe that this update will be painful in its current state. I do not care about rushing through the sig on Beta, but will care quite a bit on launch.

No I've spent about an hour, over 2 days, looking at gold piles and pillows with my graphics turned all way up. IMO searching for an item that takes longer 30 min is painful and yes I'm in a hurry there is a lot Beta content to test, from the sig quest, ascension abilities, solo/ duo/ heroic dungeons, trade-skill receipes, and spending 1 hour or more being stuck on one part of a quest is frustrating for limits the amount time that I can use on the aforementioned areas. So I voiced my feedback which is what this forum for.

i'll upload a screenshot to the wiki of the "glass shard" Smile that you are looking for that can be found near the chests and pillows.
It only has the size of a foot, but okish to find.

painful. Video game. Come on. Beta isn’t relying on just you. I’m sure the live version will go on with or without your “voice”. Every bit helps though right? Thanks for sharing and hopefully you find this update that eludes you. I could help but I’ll just be repeating myself. Good luck buddy. FYI search all the platforms in the bluffs. Maybe it’s bugged? Do /bug maybe that could help? Maybe others are having the same issue. Hopefully it works out for you Karsa.

I was able to get through quite a few serious issues today. These bug fixes to the signature line should be coming to Beta with the next update:
  • Legacy of Power: An Innovative Approach - Everyone can now loot the Ancient Clockwork Hand, even if they are not on the quest.
  • Legacy of Power: An Innovative Approach - Ancient Clockwork Hand will no longer be removed from player's inventory if quest is deleted.
  • Legacy of Power: An Innovative Approach - After defeating the erratic clockwork the Waste Duct grate is automatically unlocked, but now speaking with him will open the Waste Duct grate, too.
  • Legacy of Power: An Innovative Approach - Everyone can now see and speak with Meldrath the Marvelous after defeating the Glitched Cell Keeper, even if they are not on the quest.
  • Legacy of Power: Realm of the Plaguebringer - Primordial Malice are now actors until Felkruk is slain.
  • Legacy of Power: Realm of the Plaguebringer - High Dragoon V'Aliar and his encounter now are possible quest targets on the step "Defeat Primordial Malice around Last House Crypts"
  • Legacy of Power: Realm of the Plaguebringer - Quest updates will now accomodate having slain High Dragoon V'Aliar while on the step "Defeat Primordial Malice around Last House Crypts"
  • Legacy of Power: Glimpse of the Hereother - The Pendant of the Elder Scrykin has been given a new appearance and is much easier to see.

Just in time for me to change it to something easier to see. Sorry about that, Chillispike.

The Primordial Malice up there should be appropriate for the zone now. I believe this was fixed yesterday, so it should be on Beta now, but if it isn't... it'll be there with the next update.

Legacy of power through storms and mist

Quest: Legacy of power through storms and mist
Quest Giver : Klodsag
Zone : Torden, Bastion of Thunder: Tower Breach [Solo]

Text error : is that supposed to be roil or roll --> Then you must restore his staff! With it he commands the storms to roil,

maybe roil is the correct word ,it just seemed odd

I have another bug fix for the signature line that should be coming. Chrol and I have been working on it for a while, so some of you may be interested to know with the next Beta update:
  • Legacy of Power: Tyrant's Throne - The Molten Throne is now available!

Legacy of Power: Through Storms and Mists. Duoed this solo zone with a friend (because swashy/healer merc can't do it either). Two mobs at the top of the towers Auliffe Chaoswind and Gaukr Sandstorm are impossible for us. Mobs hit too hard. DPS bringing them down to 50% if we're lucky. And yes, I'm kiting and slowing the mob and doing ranged dps as I run in a big circle.

Done testing this until it's toned down a notch. Have better things to do with my weekend than this.

Legacy of Power: Realm of the Plaguebringer
Plane of Disease: Outbreak [Solo]
"Search for the entrance to the Crypt of Decay"

I killed the 12 Primordial Malice, continued on down the path to the fork, and took the left fork. I pulled my first bubonian "yard trash" and he called 2 friends and they called 2 friends, and so on until I had a veritable dogpile on me. I'd guess my merc and I (108 warden and Zhugrus, since I can't /claim a better merc on this non-copy) died when there were about 16 on us. (We'd killed several.) On try 2, I body pulled another and pulled a trio WAYYYYY back, looked up and saw the entire remainder of the bubonians charging towards me.

I read that they were supposed to add on a named, if you didn't clear them, but apparently I am missing something since I'm not to the named yet, and I don't see how to get less of them with how amazing their hearing seems to be. BigGrin

My current process, at least until the server goes down in another hour is to kill several while also healing like a madwoman, evac. Wait for the evac timer to refresh (7-1/2 minutes), rinse and repeat/

Firstly, I feel a little uncomfortable when EQ Legend The Denmother starts talking about killin' stuff! Like my lovely gran stats discussing the best machine gun to buy... No!
Secondly, this looks like a class disparity. I'm using a beta buffed zerk with a Stampy merc, no /claiming for this guy. I run around gathering up the yard trash and wait til I've got them all before blasting the to smithereens. I leave Stampy on back off but he doesn't need to heal much, the buff takes care of most it.

So I finished 96 quests and reached 50k with all 3 factions, then completed the Molten Throne zone to finish the signature line; or so I thought. It seems there are 97 quests and I missed the very last one of the Pakiat line "Reflection of Recollection", so no achievement and hence no completion. (I did Pakiat second, so faction is now -50k).

Unless I'm mistaken the only way I can now complete this is by grinding Pakiat faction back to 50k; this means 125 repeatable quests on live!! I'm sure this wasn't the intention, so I think some safeguards need to be put in place with regards to the 4 required achievements to prevent people falling into the same predicament. Particularly important as new and returning players are most likely to fall for this and then be totally demoralised.

PS. Any chance of a dev "fixing" my faction so I can claim the Djinn reward on live Smile)

Typo in the "Fount of Power" Buff
It says:
Your connection to the Fount of Power prevents your spells from being interupted and allows you to siphon planar energy into your abilities.

but it should be (interrupted):
Your connection to the Fount of Power prevents your spells from being interrupted and allows you to siphon planar energy into your abilities.

They intend to add a kind of save minimum or so, once you reached 50k you can't fall below +20k faction. that was in a dev post somewhere in the beta forum.

For those finding the sig line too hard, I started the sig line with my Sk, at 30k pot and 411 resolve from a mix of expert, epic, and etheral cloak and belt.
First few fights were slow and reminded me of the start of KA, went back to the beta merchant and swapped out a couple slot and infused till I was at 35k pot, at this point I flew thru all the quests, the fights became my normal gather all trash and aoe down.
The only problem I had was when a lift bugged on me after level 4 of the tower, but Chorl was on and appeared like a god to get it working while I was still there and I went on to complete, big big Thank You again.
Cant wait to see the final zone added.
So bottom line if you are having trouble use the gear and plat provided to get your stats up and keep trying.

I really liked the ending of the sig line, should there be a zone out from the Molten Throne though? I couldn't find one.
