Quests:
Elements of Destruction: Waves of Order
Elements of Destruction: Layers of Order
Elements of Destruction: Flames of Order
Elements of Destruction: Gusts of Order

Especially if you are forced to run a solo zone more than once, you can easily end up with excess tectonic fragments, onzolan crystals, thermite briquettes, and ephemeral gusts in your bags.

Once each of these quests has been successfully completed, any remaining tectonic fragments, onzolan crystals, thermite briquettes, and ephemeral gusts should be automatically deleted.

Yeah, I am not a fan of this. There has never been a sig line that I can recall where you had to run the same SOLO zone more than one time. It is one thing if I could auto-reset the zone and run it back to back (like on beta) but on live, stopping my sig quest for 90 minutes to allow a zone to reset is just a waste of time. This is especially true as was pointed out above concerning the resolve numbers needed to run the heroic versions of these zones.

Now, I will say I just re-ran the sig line last night and got all 19 updates in all 4 zones on one run. Assuming that is the standard, this is fine. If it is anticipated that you are to run these zones more than once, you should reconsider that.

Elements of Destruction: Starpyre's Flames

Only a cosmetic issue, but on the last step when you place the runes on the mural symbols in the middle of the main stacks, the clickies don't align with the circles on the new floor graphics and once placed the 4 floaty things representing the 4 planes don't align with the corresponding floor mural.

  • Quest name Elements of Destruction: Shadow Casting In The Dark
  • Quest giver name: Maelin Starpyre
  • Current quest journal entry: Kill the shadowmen and gather the Void Shard Key
  • Any other details pertaining to the issue you are encountering killed the Shadowmen but there no clickable Void Shard Key. Zoned out to EL & back in it was there.

I just had the exact same problem. Came here to see if there was a fix, read the message, zoned out to EL, zoned back in and here it was at 89, 45, -108

Additionnaly, the Fount of Power buff doesn't work in the zone and I had huge troubles killing the mobs (with beta scaling gear)

That is really odd. I didn't have any luck reproducing this. The Void Shard Key doesn't have a view predicate and is spawned immediately (in one of many possible locations) when the zone is brought up. Perhaps the particle appearance was just not loaded for you, yet? I am not sure.

Ah, that is intended. The Fount of Power buff only grants additional power in the Celestial Realms. The Isle of Vul is on Norrath.

Quest: Elements of Destruction: Face the Chaos

When fighting Blazeanger, he emotes "Blazeanger, the lavawurm golem ill temper is back". There needs to be a possessive in there: "Blazeanger, the lavawurm golem's ill temper is back" or else something like, "Blazeanger, the lavawurm golem becomes ill tempered again"

Similarly, Cinderstench's emotes need some grammar help:
  • "Cinderstench, the smoke archon smell wafts through the air" s/b "Cinderstench, the smoke archon's smell wafts through the air" or maybe "Cinderstench, the smoke archon has a smell that wafts through the air"
  • "Cinderstench, the smoke archon toxins fill the air" s/b "Cinderstench, the smoke archon's toxins fill the air", or perhaps "Cinderstench, the smoke archon fills the air with toxins"
  • "Cinderstench, the smoke archon fumes spread" s/b "Cinderstench, the smoke archon's fumes spread" or better yet, "Cinderstench, the smoke archon spreads fumes"

These have already been updated, as well as messaging hinting at what should be done to counter the Toxic Mist.

I agree it took a friend of mine 4 tries to get all the drops he needed in one zone i'm dreading trying this on live where I will not have the reset bauble to immediately go in again. I've said it before and I'll say it again making it take longer to finish sometime because of bad RNG is not an engaging or challenging mechanic it is just a PITA. took my main character 2 weeks to get one part of her 2.0 done because of the same sort of mechanic, a rare drop off of the end mob in one of the TOT zones not fun at all.that was a horrible gaming experience

Not sure, for my part, there was definitely no trace of the particle/shiny when I was first in the zone. Zoning out and back in made it appear and it wasn't in the zone previously I checked everything 3 times before giving up and checking here, the dark purple thingy wasn't there.
I'm trying to get hubby to preorder and when he does I'll run the zone another time and write you if I find the bug again.


Any way to tone down the mobs in the zone if the fount of power doesn't work? Or maybe it's a scaling gear problem? My pet died over and over and I had real troubles surviving. The buff states that it activates in Planar zones or quest zones, so it made sense to have it activate.

Quest: Elements of Destruction: Pure Adventure

After killing and looting the bixel queen Aurorax, the quest ports you immediately to the encounter with the icecrete rumbler. Then you are returned... to the entrance of the Bixel Hive. Meanwhile, your shiny is up at the very top of the hive near where you slew the queen. It would be nice to return the player to that spot, especially as that's MUCH closer to a portal back to Myrist.

Quest : Elements of Destruction: Face the Chaos
Could the respawn of the "a stormstone twister" be a bit faster or the drop rate of the wellstone be upped? I ran the sig 3 times and twice I had to kill 10ish of those to get the wellstone, it was a bit painful.

Additionnaly, why are the tower of Vul zone and the Ward of Chaos Elements player +merc but not 2 players? It's a pain to run on low DPS chars and I don't understand why I can bring a merc and not another me?
Sorry for the late feedback on that one but it took me a while to start two-boxing it.
