Cannot seem to "fight off the twisted aggressors" without dying instantly. Using Vittia Direshadow merc. Cannot pull one at a time. Cannot proceed, don't know if it is a bug or if working as intended...if it is working then should be labeled group quest.

Quest bugs?
Research and Recovery - The bookcase updated and the quest helper directs me back to Clackwhinge. I can hail Clackwhinge and get dialog however the quest does not update and I don't get the items needed to go along with the dialog.

Falling Out - I am unable to find the location for the 5th testing unit/beacon or whatever it's called LOL.

We are told to go south from Aillean's position on the hill of the digs to reach Dshinn, you actually go east or west depending on how you are facing the quest giver. There are no islands south of the quest giver however.

Quest: Crumbling Isle
Clackwhinge does not have a feather/book icon over his head when you are in the cellar to get his update. The pop-up text when you complete it has a "DEV - Invalid" text placeholder.

Quest: Running for Safety
Aillena has a feather over her head instead of a book for the completion step. I also had to run over to where the mailbox is for the update, even though the DIRTY crew didn't go that far in with me.

Quest: Stragglers
Aillena starts off by saying "what ARE those things?" ... I have no idea what she's referring to, were we supposed to be attacked on the escort trip?

Quest - Testing the Meat

After speaking with Aillena she ask you to "Gather for me some of this herb". There are a number of issues at this point.
1. The amber emperor meat is still attached to the quest.
2. All of the test creatures are still flagged as part of the quest.
3. She gives no indication as to where this herb might be found.

Using the meat of the previous creatures just makes them attack you with no quest updates so I am assuming this is not where we should be getting the herb?

It kind of feels like we are relying on the map indicators to lead us when we should be giving more description in the quest text. The map indicators are handy, but it shouldn't be like connect the dots. I'd rather be given the information I need in the quest dialogue.

Quest - Ritualistic Tendencies

After performing the ritual and speaking to Kitkalla the quest indicates you should speak to Calirar. It however puts the quest journal over Calirar's head back at the village and not at Three Sisters where you need to speak with them.

I SO agree with this. You should be able to read the quest and get ANY info you need to complete it without having to rely on the map. Go north. Go to this shore. See what's going on around this area. Quests should be able to be a fun puzzle for those of us who like them that way and not just be lazy text that relies on the quest helper to get you to the right spot.

On the quest Free Your Mind, the entropic retrogressor is working not only on the far seas people but also on the quest mobs twisted hominid, etc. I am also able to cast it on those mobs while someone else has the mob, and pull it from them to me when it becomes aggro, or when it becomes neutral it runs away from them even if they got the aggro first.

There's not actually crew, just location updates. Fly around that area.

The quest Artifacts and Grimlings-- somehow the first group of mobs that attacked me (or maybe didn't) just disappeared, I didn't even know they were on me until I saw the message that they would no longer give a reward. A few more groups spawned (long spawn times in between) and now nothing, I am stuck at 9/15 grimlings defeated.

Edit- another group attacked from somewhere when I was standing near the questivers, same as before, and despawned when I walked away. They did not hit me. When I got to the road heading back toward the tradeskill/bridge to the graveyard crossroads, all the missing grimlings spawned on me at once and I was able to finish the quest.

Quest - Repairing the Records

[BUG] - Unable to harvest needed items

Details - This quest requires you to harvest 5 damaged notes from sparkling quest nodes. Once you have harvested 5 damaged notes the nodes are no longer visible to you. After that you are required to use the 5 damaged notes to craft 5 repaired notes. I failed to craft one of the repaired notes, and the damaged note was consumed in the process. Since I am past the harvesting step of the quest I cannot get any more damaged notes, which means there is no way to finish the quest.

I tried deleting the quest out of my journal, but when I get it again from the quest NPC I am at the exact same place, with some crafting combines finished, but no way to get more of the needed harvested damaged notes.

First talk to the signature quest giver in either Qeynos Harbor or East Freeport. In Qeynos Harbor she's right next to the building on the docks with the bell. I'm not positive where they're at in EFP but I've heard that they're near the bell.

That will send you to talk to either Lucan or Antonia and from there you can take the bell to the new zone - you should see it in the middle of the map. Once there the quest givers are pretty easy to find...most of the time as long as they don't go popping off somewhere on you.

Research and Recovery

Unable to zone in to Clackwhinge's Cellar. Each attempt kicks me to the character select screen.

Character select screen shows my toon as currently in Clackwhinge's Cellar, but when I log in, I'm loaded to Tranquil Sea.

Showing Completed in my Journal:

Crumbling Isle
Falling Out
Free your Mind
Research and Recovery
Running for Safety
Stragglers
Stretched Reality
Up Againts the Wall

Now I am unable to progress any further. Aillena Belzia, located at 1174, 12, 1282 only repeatedly asks me to resuce the rest of us, which I just completed "Stragglers" and offers nothing more.

Overseer Clackwhinge, located at 1175, 12, 1280 is being just as uncooperative. After finishing "Falling Out" he repeats the dialogue which started "Falling Out" and gives me no actual quest.

ROI are essential especially with the sort of quest that are given, some point are easy -- like putting totem along the path to the altar ... other are just terrible : the flare, the second or third counter.


Red books are still missing.
Feather sometimes are missing.

I m in the middle of the second island serie and I got no reward at all till now, this will be terrible for people starting in quested TOV gear. ...

Quest : Research and Recovery
-Return to Clackwhinge

Cannot finish the quest upon hailing, tried to find a second copy of this guy (since the lady had two copies)
but in vain.
=> Consequently i cannot complete the first island quest which require to complete Clackridge quests.

Hand to Mouth
I have been looking for crystaline bloom for 20mn without finding a single one, i don't even know how they may look. The jungle is dense with lot of particles.

Opening the beta with no ROI was a huge mistake, especially when indications are almost non-existent.
Just an example i had to put the remain of a "named" a the "three sisters", my understanding was that it was at the altar because 3 spiders were there) , i was right but i still failed to see the very small particule area.

Falling out: Particles are hard to see. There was a quest in Phantom Sea, placing barricades for pygmies, where the barricade locations were transparent yellow versons of the final object. This effect might be nice for Falling out, and if you could make a transparent guy in a flare launching postion for the flare launching site for the digmaster, that would be cool too.

Clackwhinge is a Hot, badly broken, mess!

First, after completing research and Recovery, he would not speak to me. The quest says return to Clackwhinge, but he will not update or complete it.

I was able to turn in a later quest to him.

Then after completing many steps of Testing the Meat, Clackwhinge, again, will not acknowledge me. Since I am now unable to move any quest line forward, I decided to try deleting Research and Recovery, with the hopes that after restarting it I could finish it. However, he won't re-give me the quest. He still won't talk to me. I decided not to delete Testing the Meat, since it is such a long quest, and it didn't help when I deleted Research and Recovery.

I cannot move forward nor advance any quest line now. I cannot do any further testing until Clackwhinge is fixed.

Lots of people have a problem with him; it seems like it should be a priority if it is preventing further additional testing of later content.

It seems that Clackwhinge appears multiple times still, while doing the quest Testing the Meat he appears with Aillena at the dig site along with the base camp, I was able to find him at the base camp using track to update the quest Testing the Meat.
