In the Signature quest line Legacy of Power: Realm of the Plaguebringer I worked my way through the Crypt of Decay to the Darwol and Wavadozzic encounter. I killed Darwol first then got ported to Wavadozzic. I killed her but when she died I did not get a chest or a quest update and the gate to the Bahly encounter didn't open. So my Signature quest line is now stuck. I can't finish Realm of the Plaguebringer and move on to the next quest.

If you're still stuck and have that instance open, can you PM me your character name, please?

Chrol,

I sent you a private message with my character's name but didn't get a reply and the zone is still broken. I can't open the gate to get to the Bahly encounter and finish the zone. You might have been in here, the poison pool where Wavadozzic was seems to have been drained. But the gate to the next encounter (Bahly) still won't open.

I have an open instance still and my character's name is Charoun.

Step one of this quest is terrible. I am going on day 3 now looking for the 2 of the 4 N/S/E/W locations for the "Find stuff to click at the peaks". What happened to the Blue helper shading on the map? This has been broken for years and frankly its getting aggravating and angering that this still is not fixed. !!!

Quest: Legacy of Power: An Innovative Approach
Zone: Plane of Innovation: Masks of the Marvelous (Solo)
Issue: I have wended my way through the various updates to the point where the game text says, "The destruction of the Guardian releases an electromagnetic pulse, charging the Clockwork Hand!" However, upon checking my inventory, only the Ancient Clockwork Hand is there. Therefore, I cannot proceed further into the zone to complete the quest.

As an aside, some of these mob groups can take five to ten minutes to whittle down, even with a decent merc (I'm an Inquisitor, not a DPS, so that might be some of the issue). It seems a bit excessive, unless it's meant to be. Also, could the Fount of Power be applied to our mercenaries as well so that they survive more than one hit?

My concern with this is that it doesn’t give a good picture of how it will be on Live. I and many others are trying to test using the gear that we will be able to get doing things organically (faction quests and merchants, drops, signature). If the only way to make it through solo zones is to beef up with higher-level beta gear, then it’s not a good indicator of the zone balance.

Yes, the gate is open now but Bhaly still won't spawn. So I'm still stuck and can't continue in the Signature quest. Character name is Charoun.

Get some of the Beta Test Gear and put it on your merc. That will help. Also you will find that 16 resolve accolades drop in the instances which will beef your merc up over time. Can you adorn merc gear? I haven't tried that but will. My merc is holding up much better now than when I started the Signature Quest.

Quest: Legacy of Power: Glimpse of the Hereother

I collected everything except the mana-infused lead that W wanted. Then I started killing elementals, I killed many (several of which were earth elementals), but the quest item never would drop. At the suggestion of chat I logged out and then back into the game, and then the very next one I killed dropped the quest update.

1 player (Jeehi, Illy with pet) was on Legacy of Power: Realm of the Plaguebringer. The other (me as a warden) was already through that part of the sig line.

The first time we went after Wavdozzik, he hit the 50% mark, emoted, and got stuck like that in immune form. Neither player had the curse, so there was nothing we could do to damage him further. (I didn't think to try targeting Jeehi's personae twin to see if it had the curse or not). We finally broke the encounter after a few minutes of trying to get him to do something, anything.

The second encounter worked just fine, but I'm hoping there's something in the details above that helps you figure out why he suddenly didn't want to play with us. Smile

I have been stuck on not being able to do An Innovative Approach for three days now. The Repair Bot is taking me ages to kill, I think I'm following the strat. Each day I've logged in and reset the zone, each day I get to the repair bot and within a few minutes I am dead, multiple times. So it's not that it's an old zone, it's not the gear since I'm using beta provided gear (Narf gear, infused, adorned etc).

I'm at a wits end, obviously for myself. Yesterday I spent 40 minutes until finally I gave up. Whatever was changed in the past week and a half has taken me out of the equation for this expansion. Not being able to get through an expansions' signature quest line does that.

Some will tell me to fix the aa's (I have), some will say get better gear, do this or do that. This is beta, how many hoops do I have to jump through in order to see being able to finish a zone, let alone one of the first few mobs. And this is beta things will change, but will they with enough change to actually be doable on live? Some folks are getting through, are the bulk of folks able to?

A dev on discord mentioned that folks are saying it's too hard but not giving enough information on what's wrong. I was able to do it before, on this exact same character, how come I'm not able to do it now?

The conversation with Druzzil Ro at the end of the quest doesn't make sense. She says "The Ros are stronger as a result of this, as are the Thules, including their mother. "
My response is "I imagine it would be. "
Not sure what I'm supposed to be saying but something like"I imagine they are" would make more sense.
I like how they talk about the family like that. I can imagine the Ros inviting the Thules round for sundowners next to the pool and an evening of bridge. G&T's at the Ros tonight, sweetie! Mwah mwah!

Quest: "Legacy of Power: Realm of the Plaugebringer"

When you first enter the Outbreak zone and speak with Velya, one of the things she says is "...with them we can endure the offal miasma of his outer realm". Maybe you meant the animal entrails miasma of his outer realm but I am left wondering.

*snicker* Yeah, that'll be rewritten. (Even though I think TTobey would have no complaint with your mental image.) Thank you!

Two more significant changes coming to Beta for the signature quest line with the next update:
  • Legacy of Power: An Innovative Approach - An error message is now displayed if the player already has the "Electro-Charged Clockwork Hand" upon defeating The Glitched Guardian 10101 in "Plane of Innovation: Masks of the Marvelous [Solo]"
  • Legacy of Power: Realm of the Plaguebringer - Using the Enigmatic Portal Opening Device is now a group update.

Those of you who are having troubles with mobs in dungeons should be reporting those troubles in the separate dungeons threads (in the zones section). That will help ensure the different dungeon designers will see the issues.

More changes submitted for the signature quest line:
  • Legacy of Power: Realm of the Plaguebringer - Quest deletion now removes "a foul-smelling rune" and "Dormant Rune of Symbiosis" from the player's inventory.
  • Legacy of Power: Deep Trouble - An aggressive inkfish no longer breaks its encounter.
  • Legacy of Power: Deep Trouble - A brine wyvern has learned a new trick for its battle.
I forgot to post these changes on Friday. So instead of my usual "coming soon" it just means they are now on Beta!

Legacy of Power: Realm of the Plaguebringer
The step to click on the portal is NOT a group update.
If people don't notice this it can mess up quest progression.

Oh! Using the Enigmatic Portal Opening Device was not a group update, and yet, the next step using the portal, takes the entire group in. Good catch! Thank you!

Legacy of Power: Through Storms and Mists.
Step: Find Karana
Location: Tower of the Rainkeeper (Winds of Change Solo)

I'd taken a break from Beta when I could not progress this questline. I've popped back in a couple times and reset zone, but nada. I'd originally posted under the Zone forum, Winds of Change Solo. I saw that someone else had same issue.
  • You get the staff of the Rainkeeper, Klodsag tells you to go in the portal.
  • I enter said portal, kill everything and still cannot go through the "rocks" to listen to the conversation and proceed with quest.
    • I've done this over and over.
So, perhaps there was an item from a prior zone which did not stay in my bag when I zoned or something, but given that there were several zones, I did not want to delete quest and retake. Since others have gotten past this point, I am assuming this has either been fixed or a random bug.

There is no item involved in the progression of the storm barrier, so you didn't miss anything there. There had been an issue where if you killed a giant before his Primordial Malice counterpart, the encounter kill did not notify the zone properly. Thankfully, Gninja corrected the issue.

I would suggest you refresh your zone (previously started instances don't automatically update after a new Beta build).

If you are still encountering this trouble, even after that, let us know!

Kaitheel, I need a little help on a quest problem...I am in Bastion of Thunder Tower Breach [solo]. I have the staff of the rain keeper but the portal is not here. Because I was unable to play for a few days my instance had expired.
My quest journal still says that is where I am at in the quest. I just rekilled Auliffe Chaoswind, and did not get the part from his chest to make the staff again.
I think this is a bug, because the portal (or the items to make it) should not be gone or should be available to re-earn.
It was suggested to me that I delete and restart this portion of the quest.
If every quest had to be deleted and restarted each time it messed up, it would make the game very annoying and not be worth doing. In beta I understand, but I just wonder if this is something that should be addressed so it does not carry over into live.

Thank you for wanting to bring this issue to our attention! Deletion of the quest should not be necessary. It is too often thrown around as a solution, and in some cases it may relieve the observed issue, it doesn't help resolve the cause. That said, let's move on to resolving your issue...

Enter "Torden, Bastion of Thunder: Winds of Change" That is where you will find the portal, as long as your quest journal still says, "Use the portal within the Bastion of Thunder to enter the Tower of the Rainkeeper", "Find Karana", "Karana is being attacked by an entity who looks just like him!" or "Give Karana the reformed Staff of The Rainkeeper"
