Quest; Elements of Destruction: Face the Chaos
Zone: Wards of Chaos Elements

If for whatever reason you have to leave the zone and come back later, you will not have the abilities available anymore you acquired before, e.g. right now I am missing:
- Icecrete Shield
- Fulgurite Strike

Without these you can't defeat Najena, unfortunately and with a minimum lockout timer of 2 days 20 hrs, this will be a real game breaker if it goes live like this.

You can get the items back the same way you received them previously. But the next update will add them back for you if you re-enter the same instance at a later time.

Elements of Destruction : Planes of Disorder
trying to kill Heaper.

I am at the point of killing Heaper. It starts out ok, but then his adds show up. I kill them and he is back to 100%.

And the number of adds keep growing.

I haven't seen any clue on how to defeat him. I get killed over and over with no progress. Am I missing something,
or is it just too much for a templar?

Quest:
Elements of Destruction: Gusts of Order

I have completed all steps and am ready to Take the Portal to Oeranthia Spire, however, the portal is not there.I have emptied the zone of almost all the mobs and there are no zephyren, phoenix, nilborien and wilders left for me to kill and I have only 11/19 Ephemeral Gusts. The quest says the ephemeral gusts. are an uncommon drop lol they re so uncommon that the zone didn't drop enough for me to finish the quest. So...what do I do now?

Unfortunately, zone out and reset then run the entire thing all over again until you get the 19/19.

I get the "uncommon" drop needs but there needs to be a way to guarantee you can get 19/19 in one run. Maybe some respawning mobs or something so that people do not have to go into the zone, slog through, go out, reset, and slog through the entire thing all over again. Nothing about that says fun or interesting - it just screams needless tedium

Suggestion for the end line reward: as they're all secondary, make a standardized proc applicable to all. No one I know will choose a Decisive Strike weapon over a Devastation Strike weapon, and yet, there aren't that many choices. I myself, would use Noxious Rending over anything else, since my class is Thaum, but, that option isn't available to me. Other folks I know would much prefer the Arcane Rending, but it wouldn't be available to their classes either. This would leave quite a few folks dissatisfied with their end-line choices. Cuerva'Renda (or some other, non-class specific proc) would be much preferred as an "offered-to-everyone" reward.

A few changes concerning the signature line coming to Beta with tomorrow's update:
  • Elements of Destruction: Pursuit of Justice - Meditating in Myrist no longer forces you to dismount.
  • Elements of Destruction: Gusts of Order - Some bosses now have a much greater chance to drop ephemeral gusts for players on this quest.
  • Elements of Destruction: Layers of Order - Some bosses now have a much greater chance to drop tectonic fragments for players on this quest.
This is getting better and better!

Quest; Elements of Destruction: Face the Chaos
Zone: Wards of Chaos Elements

After gaining Filtered Breath scroll, I am unable to interact with Fires of Knowledge inside the Totality of Knowledge. The cursor shows the name of the item, however, unable to interact with it to move to the next step of the quest.

Feedback for sig questline from a gimpy defiler. I ran through everything before on my raid ranger and struggled in a few spots but made it through. On my defiler, I am really struggling as I am not built for DPS. I took along Gustav (monk merc) that I had from current expac, leveled and geared him up but he is only a merc so can't really expect much. Getting through overland trash is fairly easy and quick. The solo instances are not so easy and quick. It is taking a lot longer to kill trash and some of the named are brutal for a solo instance. Ones that come to mind are in the fire zone (Elements of Rage) Manacrush was impossible with a merc. I had to have a guildie come in and kill it with me. Kept draining my mana too quickly. Couldn't keep up with the loss and trying to heal, do DPS, etc. Hopelessly lost in Midnight Aerie again (I was lost on my ranger but had tracking), so gave up until a guildie can run me through. I did kill the first boss (Beatnik). The 2nd set killed me almost instantly. I have not ventured any further as I know I will run into problems. The water zone (Marr's Ascent) I know I will have major problems with the last 4 named. I had to kite them on my ranger while my hawk killed them. Won't have that ability on my defiler.

Last year's beta I had no problems getting through the sig questline on both my ranger and my defiler. I do prefer a challenge but there is a limit! I know beta has only been out for a week and there is lots more tweaking that needs to be done. Once some of that tweaking is updated and there are at least some maps (hopefully in The Midnight Aerie at least), I can continue on with my defiler.

My paladin has some of the same issues. I'm going to probably have to have my conjy go hunt stuff to get drops the paly can use that are better than what's in the lockbox, I think.

I had the same issue, someone told me in general chat to kill all the rumblers etc. I found I had to kill the ice rumblers again (I'd killed them before) and there were also 3 Wildfires that I'd ignored earlier since I was able to get the paper and crystals from their room without aggroing them all. Once those were all dead the Fires of Knowledge was clickable.

Elements of Destruction: Waves of Order. May have been unlucky with the RNG, but only got 12 onzolan crystals from a complete run through Awuidor: Marrs Ascent. Problem seems to be with lower levels, I only had 2 by the time I killed 4th named, then got a load of them on the last platform.

Chrol, I know in beta we can just use the reset tool, but that is something not possible on live servers. And I wasn't talking about items but the "abilities" (like Icecrete Shield) you get when killing a named. And once that particular named is dead, there is no "re-gaining" the ability when you go back at a later time into the same instance. Hence my comment about 2 days 20 hours lockout time being a game breaker for "live" servers.

As posted previously, as of yesterday's [Beta] update, you get those items back on re-entry.

Question on the Beta Reward mount Errithak, the Black Ravager. When you complete the TS Beta quest line, the Beta mount reward shows up on your live account upon completion. I found my TS mount on the live server under the Claim > Beta Reward option. However, the Signature Beta Mount reward is not showing up on the accounts on live where I have completed the Signature quest line.

Will this show up some time in the future?
Is the presently a bug in the reward process?
If it is suppose to be present upon completion, but not there, what is the process to request it?

Thanks

You do not get a mount as a /claim for finishing the adventure signature line. The adventure mount reward comes from an achievement "Vanquishing the Chaos Descending" that needs more stuff to be completed than the adventure signature line. Open your achievements -> quests -> Chaos Descending and check what you are missing to complete the achievement "Vanquishing the Chaos Descending"

The following signature quest changes should be included with tomorrow's Beta update:
  • Elements of Destruction: Starpyre's Flames - Placed runes are now visable.
  • Elements of Destruction: Pure Adventure - The foreign elementals in Doomfire and Eryslai are more obvious now.
Keep those bug reports coming!

Quest: Elements of Destruction: Shadow Casting in the Dark

I am playing my Conji. The mobs in the Isle of Vul are killing my tank pet quicker than I can heal him and killing myself if just a few hits. They are not listed as heroic yet they hit me for about a third of my life each hit. Since we aren't allowed a Merc in the zone, the mobs seem to be a bit overpowered.

The SIg Quest reward "Inferno, the Fyreiron Poker" has a designation of Offhand. Shouldn't that be Secondary?

Why on earth aren't you using your Planeswalker??? Or, if you didn't do the Epic 2.0 to get the Planeswalker, at least use a good DPS pet? Your goal is to do enormous DPS and kill them before they kill you. Stoneskins + big DPS + Ascensions. However, my conjy + Planeswalker were one-shotting them.

If you have your Planeswalker and it isn't Ancient, I can make you the Ancient. It needs a Greater Fragment of Planar Energy, which I have, plus the following KA rares:
  • 3 Shadowstone Ore
  • 3 Shadow Quartz
  • 1 Leatherly Shadeleaf

Drop me a PM here if you need the Ancient and give me the toon name and when you'll be on. The thing is NO-TRADE so it has to be commission crafted (if you yourself don't have the recipe).

Elements of Destruction: Waves of Order
Awuidor: Marr's Ascent [Solo]

ran the Zone cleared all trash/Named and looted them all ended up with 16/19 ( Onzolan crystals )

I haven't done my epic 2.0. The mobs there shouldn't be so difficult that you have to have your epic to kill them. I can only imagine how tough they will be when I take my assassin through the questline. The main questline for the expansion shouldn't be designed with the idea of having your epic 2.0 or ancient spells. I would guess that the majority of people doing it will be on alts that they level up to that point or toons that they only solo'd with.

Please tell me you're not using a pet that is not Expert or better. If you don't have the Planeswalker, then use your Aery Hunter, hopefully at least mastered, better yet grandmastered. The scout pets were fixed a while back so that they actually became the best DPS, before that we were using fire pets.

Also, I'm guessing you need gear and spell upgrades. Did you get the Tishan's Lockbox gear at least? Your need to have good enough armor on that you can take at least one hit if you're soloing... that's so if the pet loses aggro you can root it and run away, or use a deaggro.

If you do not have at least Expert for all your main profession spells, ask in Crafting channel and let's get a sage to update you. By this point, having been level 110 for a wholew expansion, you shouldn't be using Apprentuce or Journeyman spells. It's like using a peashooter instead of a bazooka.

Note that the handcrafted Scholar's gear is a bit better than Tishan's Lockbox, and the mastercrafted Academic's gera is much better. If youdon't have better luck once you are using a DPS pet and better spells, then ask in Crafting channel for a tailor to make you some MC armor.

My earth pet is at expert level. The spells that I use the most are at least expert level also. I didn't grab the gear from the lockbox because I don't know if it will be there when the xpac goes live. As I mentioned I can take the mobs in the Isle of Vul hitting me about 3 or 4 times before they kill me.

The main issue as I said is that alts or players on their first toon generally won't have spells anywhere near expert level. The gear will also be at best probably from the panda in Sundered Frontier. The mobs in the overland zones where you harvest at are approximately the same level as the ones on the Isle and they don't hit anywhere as hard. If they are going to send us into an instance without a merc and no fount of power, the mobs need to be of a similar difficulty.
