The boss fights definitely seem to be taking too long
Class: Coercer (running with Evania Val'Sara for merc.. merc did an irrelevant 124k encdps)
Stats: 235 fervor, 4010 cb, 147,4083.9 pot, 1,096,386.3 ab mod.. epic 2.0 and tome of the ascended
enc dps: 153,201,338.38
Ancient Clockwork Prototype took 5:10 minutes to kill
Clockwork Scrounger took 2:01 minutes
Glitched Guardian took 2:21 min

Wearing gear from faction lines, over land mobs and solo instances (toon has finished sig line)

Side note: Please please PLEASE attach a det to the extremely annoying 'pin' the furnaces apply when you get to close. This at least tells players WHY their movement keys have stopped responding and for how long they have to stand around.

Plane of Innovation: Masks of the Marvelous solo, doing Legacy of Power: An Innovative Approach- mobs were easier for me to kill this morning, 11/13/17 and merc did not die as much. Font of Power came up as soon as I logged in ( kept my warden in zone to finish kills). I killed the Glitched Guardian and I got the message that the Ancient Clockwork Hand had been electromagnetically charged, but when I went to check, it still is unchanged and not able to be equipped, so I cannot open the door to advance the quest.

I logged out last night in zone and logged back in this morning. Last night I was having a heck of a time killing the Glitched Guardian ( took a long time, like almost 30 minutes to get it down to 98%, so I evaced to zone entrance, logged out and logged back in this morning. I was able to kill the Glitched Guardian this morning with no trouble so I am hoping it was a new zone but I did not exit zone completely and go back in. I was not sure if I would have to redo everything or not to advance. I can try exiting completely and going back in and seeing if that works later tonight after I get the family taken care of.

Cuora, you'll likely need to manually reset your zone (which does mean starting over, but you'll also have a freshly patched instance).

To reset, hit to bring up your zone timers and either click "Reset All" to clear everything that is eligible, or click on the zone to highlight it and then click "Reset Timer". (You can hover over the zone in the list to see how much time is left before you can reset.)

If it won't reset (because you are still within the minimum timer), you can get a Beta Lockout Reset bauble from the Beta Buffer at the Spire in the Plane of Magic:

That will ensure you start with a freshly-minted zone with the latest code updates.

For beta the zones should all be auto reset if we patch. But this is a new system so it needs to get the kinks worked out.

Thank you both Gninja and Shmogre. I'll try to reset tonight. I may have the Beta Lockout Reset Tool on Cuora. But if not, I'll pop on over to the Spires and pick one up just in case. I'll report how or if it worked. I know this server is always patching so I'm not sure if I am getting a patched zone or not, but I do know I noticed a big change in how the named mobs were this morning and it was much better.

I went in this morning and it promptly booted me out due to a patchSmile. I re-ran the zone, killed the Ancient Clockwork and his 2 buddies, killed the other mobs and named, got to the Glitched Guardian and got the Ancient Clockwork Hand to update and it is now equipped and I was able to enter the next phase. I will deal with that later this afternoon hopefully.

Ok logged in after the patch this morning, made sure to reset all my zones. Went into Masks of the marvelous to be greeted with the first named having 81,763 combat mit in his buff package. I did not even try to finish the fight and just zoned out. I am sure this should not be correct, so i will have to wait until these are brought into reality type numbers to try to run them again.

There is currently an issue with stats actually applying behind the scenes (like your stats) so it thinks you have 0 to some stats that should be WAY higher. We will get a fix out asap as we have already identified the cause.

All zones will reset when we do a beta update, it prevents the bugs from being reported that were already fixed. As far as it taking forever to kill stuff, that should be fixed later today.

So glad it's not just me. I went in to try to finish this part this morning and the whole zone reset, and I could not even make a dent in the first mob. I just zoned out also. Looking forward to the fix. Smile

I decided to re-run this zone tonight on Niami, and brought along my electro-charged clockwork hand. I got as far as the locked doorway (and now have the ancient clockwork hand as well as the electro-charged clockwork hand). I equipped the electro-charged one, and got the error message "You must have the Electro-Charged Clockwork Hand and you must be holding it to use it on this door." -- when I have it in my hot little halfling hand, waving it like a shabba-shabba dolly at the door. :O

I finished this quest this afternoon and all worked perfectly ( or as close to perfect as we can get). I had no trouble with the named mobs and even was able to advance to the next phase of the quest- onward to Plane of Disease!

Yes. I didn't try the door until it was time to go through it.
