D'oh! You are correct. Unfortunately, the problem is still there on Beta. I just found the reason for it, and will get that fix in for tomorrow's Beta update. Thank you, Leisher!

Both Fathad Zastim and Balgros are suffering from the same issue, and have to be taken down a couple notches. We'll get that in for tomorrow's Beta update!

  • Quest name Elements of Destruction: Pursuit of Justice
  • Quest giver name: Maelin Starpyre
  • Current quest journal entry: Defeat the attacking bookworm
  • Any other details pertaining to the issue you are encountering
    • Bookworm drains mana and quickly kills me upon spawning
      • (Illy wearing new free gear only from chest in foyer)
    • Tried with Merc (Level 10 Grimror) - killed us both just as quick - did no damage to the bookworm
    • Tried using ascension - no damage
    • I cannot kill to progress the quest - did not try full group but not listed as group content

Yeah, it's not intended that the bookworm is so strong. I'm taking a look at it today.

Bookworm also kills innocent bystanders. Someone else was fighting a bookworm as I ran into the room. I stood by, waiting for the person fighting it to be finished so I didn't get in the way or anything, and it one shot killed me.

Edit: I have 56 million health, so that 26 million hit shouldn't have killed me in one shot, nevermind the fact that I wasn't engaged in battle with it. Also, I did this part of the quest yesterday, and it didn't hit me like that.

This is my feedback from a raid geared ranger. At first, I didn't switch out any of my T2 and T3 raid gear, cow helm, tome, or DC neck.
Some solo instance mobs were difficult but with a guildie along for the ride on some, was able to get the kill and move forward in the questline.
In a lot of the solo instances, I had to manually cast the fount of power.
I know that maps are coming but getting around in the new zones can be confusing when you have no idea where you are going.
The mob in the jail is way too overpowered for a solo questline. Yes, I realize that some have killed him successfully after several minutes with complete mit gear, heal pots, etc, etc, etc but after switching out most of my gear for mit gear, kiting, heal pots, thorns, and snaring constantly, I couldn't do it. I am not very coordinated so kiting is not easy for me. He really needs to be adjusted so that everyone can kill him because you can't even take a merc in there. Not sure about the mob after that but from what I hear, he is impossible to kill. My guildies that got through the jail mob say the next mob won't even take damage. Not sure if this is intentional right now to gate people from finishing the questline too quickly, but think that will also be a problem for a large number of the player base.
All the new zones were really cool looking. Great work from the art department!
I know there is a portal to CoV but it would help to have a banker, a mender/reforger and the ascension trainer in the library somewhere.
I am trying to be constructive at the moment, even though I am fuming about the jail mob. I almost threw my keyboard across my office, I got so mad and frustrated. I wanted to leave my feedback on the rest of the new expac though because it looks to be good so far. Just fix the jail mob and a few other things so everyone can at least take a buddy along and have fun going through the quests.
BTW, I had no trouble last year in beta with killing everything with my ranger. I did switch out to the new gear in the beginning as was able to kill everything alone or with a healer merc if needed.

[110] Elements of Destruction: Shadow Casting in the Dark(Heroic)
Balgros

I'm stuck at this mob too and its very frustrating. I spoke to a few friends that didn't have a problem but I'm over 890 and he is still killing me in three hits.

Update: I logged into the zone after update, and still kills me in three hits. Resolve is over 900. I tried debuff, using ascension for DoTs and buffs, and I can get him down maybe to 96%? So I guess I'll just do other zones and other quests and TS when that comes out.

The services you are mentioning already exist in the library. You probably noticed that there are several portals all named in a way to guide you Smile

SWS Portal - CoV; PoM; Detroxxulus Prophecy Portal Gallery /way 210 -20 237

NWS Elemental Portal Gallery /way 254 -20 -284
Earthen
Unresting Waters
Kingdom of Wind
Doomfire, the Burning Land

Ascension trainer /way 223 -4 59

North Wing Catalog (mezzanine) /way 304 15 -136 portal to merchant's gallery/services
banker
broker
purveyor of heroic services
status merchant
armor merchant, next to, unlocked armor merchant

Merchant's gallery portal
reforger
mending and reforger (mender)

also, there are guards and you can ask them for npc you need! I think I'd have asked for mender so that may not have given me any hits... didn't try though. I explored the area as I got /loc for each item.

Thank you, I didn't even notice this. When I get back in beta, I will take a look at their locations.

you're welcome and I was coming to add that there is even a bartender where you can set your recall point (for those that have the stein or dhalgar call).

The following changes have been made and should be in with tomorrow's Beta update:

QUESTS
  • Elements of Destruction: Layers of Order - Cleansing the Thudos Corestone is now possible!
  • Elements of Destruction: Pursuit of Justice - Bookworm is no longer ridiculously strong or casting AoE spells on innocent bystanders.
ZONES
Plane of Justice
  • Balgros is no longer ridiculously strong.
Bellengere's Dark Spire
  • Fathad Zastim is no longer ridiculously strong.
More fixes to come!

You'll be glad to hear that it was *never* intended to be that difficult and is being fixed with tomorrow's Beta update.

Just finished signature line. Generally, i though it was all too short.
Only problem really was a bug in Midnight Aerie (or missing hint?) so couldnt get to end boss, but ended up resetting zone to get the rest of the quest updates, the floated to the island and finished the quest.

Last zone, Ward of Chaos Elements i think it was called. I realise there were items to buff you and help you out, but generally the mobs seemed a bit too buffed. Decently geared monk and i didnt struggle, but mobs sure were going down slow. Especially Najena in the end took a while. I can imagine lesser geared toons would have huge troubles with the zone. (Did a feedback ingame on this as well)

The weapon you get as reward, how about adding some Fervor to them to actually replace the epics? They have a good amount of potency, but no fervor.

I have also been looking for the merchant that supposedly sells the epic buffs but couldnt find him. Are they additional rewards for the last quest if you havent completed it, or is the merchant just not in game yet?

Unfortunately asking guards for directions just gives you a waypoint - and that waypoint is going to try to lead you to the NPC, not to the portal you have to take to get to the NPC. (eg the wisp trail will veer off into a wall somewhere that you can't go through because it's trying to go right to the NPC directly) That's the downside to having things off in portals rather than in the 'main' area.

  • Elements of Destruction : Planes of Disorder
  • Maelin
  • Obtain a pure sample of Earth within the Plane of Earth
  • I'm up to taking care of the mob Heaper. The behavior isn't clear to be able to figure out what I'm supposed to do to conquer this named. Some hint/clue etc would go a long way to make it less obscure. The adds when spawned one shot unless I start kiting. The named then just heals back to 100%.

  • Elements of Destruction : Flames of Order
  • a corrupted conflagration of [insert element] - for this post it's about fire
  • Obtain thermite briquettes
  • This isn't really a /bug as it is more concerning about the strats for the named in the zone. I'm finding that there isn't enough information for me to know what type of strategy to use to kill a mob. I'm ending up kiting and hoping that I'll get the kill for the update. Going to guess that's not the intention of the fights. As an example, I kited and conquered Spikesnot, but really it was a lucky kill. I'm up to Daedalus and have no idea what to do except try and kite and again hope to get lucky. Daedalus spawns flame crystals, which I can't target so maybe I can aoe them? but I can't without power so here I am.
The post sounds like I'm whining. Not exactly. It's more about asking for more clues/clarity as to what am I supposed to try to do with the named mob strats. I don't want to just hope I get a lucky kill after many minutes of kiting.

for the step of ruins of rathe, after i killed the last named and looted the shard i ended up zoneing out before the trap had a chance to even go off... and now i guess have to redo the zone. should maby have a root/stun after looting or not open the exit portal and alow clicking. basicly looted, and then left thinking had to go back to Maelin. dident even notced missed a step untill he wouldent talk to me. a portal to send ourselves into the trap if we end up zoneing out and go back in.

Elements of Destruction: Shadow Casting in the Dark

I zoned in, and then zoned out of the Plane of Justice: Eternal Prisons and logged off for the night. When I logged in this morning it put 'justicarium cell key' in my overflow. Then when I went to zone back into Plane of Justice from Myrist the key disappeared (no-zone)

Same quest:
In Isle of Vul: Bellengere's Dark Spire you have combat but aren't allowed to summon a mercenary. I generally like to have a healer merc with me so that changes the difficulty of the quest zone quite a bit not allowing one.

Feedback:

Signature Quest Reward Choices:

The final rewards for the Signature Quest Line forces mages to choose an option that requires them to replace their main hand weapon immediately while all other archetypes have an option available for an offhand item. If this did not cause an immediate drop in Fervor (35 from Mythical) for mages it wouldn't be a big deal but with the new focus on Fervor over Potency this will put Mages at an immediate disadvantage with having to choose a new weapon for Resolve purposes at the cost of Fervor while other archetypes do not have to make the same sacrifice.

Elements of Destruction: Gusts of Order

Upon running zone a second time to get needed dropped items, killed final boss no portal to Oeranthia Spire appeared, Just the one to return to Library.

Also, would it be possible to increase drop rates on gusts so one does not have to run zone twice to complete the quest?
