Please post all feedback and bugs that you may encounter, while testing the Phantom Sea quests in this thread.

Be sure to give as much specific information as possible, such as: the quest name, the NPC who gave the quest to you, the last step that you were able to accomplish, your location (/loc), what your journal currently says, and what you are attempting to do in order to fulfill it.

This will help us reproduce, diagnose, and resolve the issue as soon as possible!

Thank you all for your assistance, and have fun!

[100] Caustic Collection
Crystal exploding rate seems very high. I may need more feedback in the crystal explosion red message if I didn't do something right to harvest them, or the quest journal.

EDIT: All attempts after the first have been explosions. Got a message about disturbing a water spout on the first one.. maybe I feigned death and didn't kill it or something. Anyways gonna try to delete it and face my spout in deadly combat before I try a second collect.

[100] Procuring Armor Plates
Seemed like less than 8 stegodons were up at once. nice dino variety in area. Could you change this to 8/10/12 of any large dinosaur armor plate? Would be less of a bottleneck. (apatodon, cerodon, etc) ((Lore and legend dinosaur!? add it! add it!)

[100] Deino-bite!
worm mud mounds super hard to see, could use particle effect, or make them like a super dark colored mud. failure rate is a little high for the rate at which they render.

Here is a compiled list I have from last night concerning Phantom Sea

1. Quest "Shattered Seas: Dark Threats on Dshinn" says (No Base Text) in quest accept box and reward box. When getting to North Dshinn, after getting the update of landing in blackwall and to find a pygmy, the pop-up text says the [DEVL] INVALID before finding Guld. This also continues for the main bullets in the quest journal for this quest. As for instance currently I have 2 steps completed that say [DEVL] INVALID - No progress texts specified, then a 3rd unfinshed saying this with 2 sub-bullets actually saying what to do -Continue to Help Corrith Midner and -Help Zaveta Stickyfingers.

2. Quest "Field Bandage" from Corrith says their private beach is "_(western)_" shore instead of eastern. It does have the brackets and underlines. Saltyknuckles also bug reported this one.

3. Quest "Caustic Collection" has a really low success %. It took 81 crystals to get all 8 updates.

4. Quest "Deino-bite! has a semi low success rate. It took 32 mud mounds to get the worms. I personally did not see the problem with the color of the mud, they stood out to me.

5. Quest "Shattered Seas: Dark Forest of Legend" in the quest accept box it has [NO BASE TEXT] and after completing steps of the quest the main bullets in the journal are [DEVL] INVALID - No progress texts specified.

6. Quest "Sustaining Souls of Bloody Kithicor" you can spam click the vessel on a single skeleton for all 12 updates.

7. (Pending patch as per Kaitheel) Quest "Gangrenous Treatment" cannot be completed at this time, which in the process stops from progressing "Shattered Seas: Dark Forest of Legend" as there are no weapons in the village to destroy.

BLAAARGH! been going at it for like 45m, 6/8 with only me scouring the clickables. Can it be 12/14/16 ATTEMPTS, and then I go and yell at the ratonga, mission complete?

EDIT: The shattering? was that when luclin was destroyed? no, its when a ratonga sent me out to get intact caustic crystals

So working through the Ghorkaal quests with Saltyknucklesx, after the quest "Body of Work" for Destore J'Narus, she would no longer give him anymore quests. She continued to give me three more quests of "Corrupting the Blessed", "Malicious Obsession" and "Sustaining Souls of Bloody Kithicor". He however was able to get 2 quests from Eleden Calmseas doing basically the same things I did for Destore.

His quest "Putting down the Walking Dead" did the same thing as my "Sustaining Souls of Bloody Kithicor", he was able to spam click the vial on dark elf skeletons.

So is this a split quest line for Freeport vs. Qeynos?

Yes! They are dependent upon which city you started the signature line in.

This is such a great start to testing Phantom Sea! Thank you!

The following issues should be resolved in a future Beta update:
  • Putting Down the Walking Dead - Quest journal has full text.
  • Momentary Peace for Bloody Kithicor - Quest journal has full text.
  • Coin in Remembrance - Quest journal has full text.
  • Shattered Seas: Dark Threats on Dshinn - Quest journal has full text.
  • Field Bandage - Directions to the impromptu beach camp has been corrected.
  • Shattered Seas: Dark Forest of Legend - Quest journal has full text.
I am not sure when these changes will hit Beta, but know that they are on their way!

don't make people hate themselves on collection crystals on the quest "Caustic Collection" you need to relook at the % of grabbing them

For some reason, I can't throw the jar of stuff at the ceremony to mess it up in the quest Ceremonial Vestments and Condiments

Yeah, that's not intended. We don't want it or "Deino-bite!" to be frustrating. The success rates will be adjusted, but right now I am focusing on impeding bugs and finishing quest implementation. I've just got to prioritize the order of which the issues are addressed.

But it is super cool, if I was a shadowknight, the squeal of delight I would have emitted would have disturbed many nearby people.

So I tried to see if this quest would complete even with it being blank by doing the Advanced Solo version of Ossuary since thats what Opal pretty much tells you to do before the quest accept box, it didnt do anything. Solo version is impossible to kill trash currently so can't test that yet.

Taking the Thunder Pass - I've scoured the island, specifically the Thunder Pass area, for 20 or 30 minutes, and can't seem to find any lorpa vines. I do see some vine looking things hanging off of the trees here and there, but they don't appear to be clickable. Not sure if this is an ID 10T error, or what.

Shattered Seas: Seeds of Malice

Since the last beta update we got the quest description, however, the quest asks to zone in "Ossuary of Malevolence: Primordial Altar", and the zone seems to be unavailable at the moment.
However when we try to zone in we get the update for the quest, asking to explore and search for objects.

Plus, there is no indication on if the Ossuary of Malevolence: Primordial Altar is a solo / heroic or whatever zone. The (Solo) - (Advanced Solo) ... is missing.

If it is a solo zone, do you know when will we be able to zone in?
If it an heroic zone, seem to be time to help us lvling (beta buffer or re-open grind zones).

Caustic Collection - seems like gathering the crystals has an unreasonably high failure rate.

Shattered Seas: Dark Threats on Dshinn. After flying around randomly finally got the 4 spots. Can not find any other members of the Far Seas Co. on the Island. Big place, no hints.

I grouped with someone just now that was at 4 crystals, with the high failure rate of grabbing them, they got all 8 crystals once I joined the group, it seemed that since I already did the quest the success rate of grabbing the crystals went way up for them for some reason. /shrugs
