Fuel to the Fire: A turbulent flame
Dropped quest
The quest didn't appear to give any xp. I'm pretty sure the same was true for "Fuel to the Fire: Dark Gaseous Fuel" but can't say for certain.

Fuel to the Fire: A Laminar Flame
Dropped quest

I have absolutely no clue as to where the sprites are. I rand across the zone a bunch of times, saw tons of SPIRITS but no SPRITES. Quest text says that I should look at carcass and eliminate the threats, so it points to "living" creatures that I need to kill. But I saw no quest feather and nothing named sprite. My char is a conjuror and cannot track, so I might have bypassed something, but if somebody saw something updating in the burning lands (I had no answers in general), I'm interested.

I had to go back to the codex to get it when I was at the part to sign. Worked out after that.

This for me as well. Someone directed to the fiery spirits. Those aren't sprites. I killed at least 20 /just in case. Have killed/tracked and even got achievement for exploring the zone. Still no sprites.

Quest: Dark Power Desires
Quest Giver; Cody
Quest step: Kill doomfire efreeti mages and priests for infernal spell stones

issue: There are too few efreeti. There are barely enough efreeti for one person. With 2 people in the zone, there aren't enough of them and they don't respawn fast enough.

Agree with above..not all efreeti will drop the items, plus the random drop rate is very low. Basiliks on the other hand are two plentiful and constantly respawning.

I'll take a look, definitely, but I would also suggest flying around a bit to make sure you've found all of their possible spawn points. I added more and increased their numbers yesterday.

I did find a few nearby 'around' the edge of the mountain to the NE but there were none south of their main area (flew around with tracking up).

  • There are way too still to few Efreeti if they are not 100% or the number are too high. If more then one person is doing the quest there is not enough - I was doing it with a person harvesting and they were killing because they got aggro. The same could be said for the quest before it with the wasp eggs. Which ohh by the way don't look like eggs - though the baskets of eggs that are not the update do. Thank you.

Quest: What Stings and Burns

Need to collect 14 Fire Wasp eggs from Burning Lands. The eggs seem to be relatively rare and it's only me looking for them. May create a bottleneck when this goes live.

I'll check it out, but they do have an immediate respawn with a h*ck of spawn points. Be sure you are searching inside the wasp nest for them.

As a follow up to this, currently the efreeti have a higher spawn number than basilisks, and a higher number of efreeti immediately respawn than the basilisks do. I will shorten their respawn time, but otherwise, I would just suggest hunting all efreeti, even if they don't have quest update icons. That's your best way of getting more of the efreeti you want to spawn.

Oh, we were doing mass slaughter of all efreeti. The fact that they only sometimes respawn as the ones needed for the quest, combined with needing 12, and the low over-all number of them is the bottle-neck. If we're running it to scarcity on beta, it's going to be worse on live.
Among other things, people on beta are more likely to group with random people to share kills for quest updates, as happened to me right before I made this update. Perhaps consider reducing the number of kills needed for the quest update?

I'll be increasing the number that immediately respawn, and decreasing their respawn time (currently is 15-45 sec). Just be sure you're checking all of the nests (two main areas around loc 242 101 33 and loc 117 61 307). Oh, and I'll also be increasing their size, which should help to make them easier to spot.

Quest : What Stings and Burns

I have to agree with the previous poster , the eggs are way too rare, the respawn does not seem that fast, it took me over an hour to get the updates with one other person competing for the eggs

Quest : Dark Power Desires

The efreeti respawn quite fast , but only some have feathers and even killing one with a feather is not a 100% update .
Perhaps make all efreeti in that area update the quest 100% of the time ?

Quest: What Stings and Burns
Questgiver:The Unbound Maladjusted Codex

Wasp eggs could benefit from a respawn boost. Was doing this quest at the same time as 4 others in the area, and not an egg to be found. (Found 2 eggs in half an hour)

Quest: What Stings and Burns
Questgiver:The Unbound Maladjusted Codex


I found one egg in an hour. I did this on a previous toon and had no problem at all. There was 1 other person and she was just standing in one of the huts, probably waiting for respawn on the egg.

Good catch! Apparently, when I increased their size and increased the number of them that immediately respawn with this morning's update, the spawn count got truncated to 2. ARGH! They'll be back up to their 28 count with Thursday's Beta update.

Thank you, Mercychalice!

What Stings and Burns: Eggs are still few and far between with a slow respawn time. Maybe make the darned things trackable? Or stick a bunch in the same nest.

Addendum: The problem was in zone 2; the first instance respawns.

With tomorrow's Beta update you should find the following change:
  • What Stings and Burns – The number of fire wasp eggs required has been reduced, but now also requires fire wasp larva chitin.
The larva can be spawned by stealing the eggs, so you may end up getting two updates off of one egg clutch.

Retired FORTRAN/COBOL programmer and 20 years of technical writing. My glance just sticks on typos after all that Wink My dev team at my last job called me the "one pixel natzi" because I could see that an icon was one pixel off, lol.
