Stand in teh middle of the mages and pray. Took me about 20 kills to get the updates as the mages steal your kills but it is the only location I was able to get the updates at.

Run into the fight areas.  Your presence will trigger Harrowing Horde to be spawned on you.  They will lock to you.  Defeat them to update your quest.

Firiona Vie – A harrowing experience

The static Orafic shrillmaw around the portal (-476.25, 15.31, 83.74 ) are not updating the quest but the one spawning in the middle of the portal is.

Galen Cadabrak – Constructing Cardin Wardens

The guardian stones don't show as quest baubbles in the quest helper. The point where we can drop them is too small. You have to walk back and forth a couple of notches to find the excat right spot. It's a bit of a pain.

Galen Cadabrak – Out of the Fire…

It wasn't really clear the the "Incantory Apex" is outside of Somborn and should be mentionned (-77.90, 43.44, -222.46 ). The ferns are along the way.

Fern at -170.86, 33.74, -121.35 dropped it's pod just below the earth, I only see the top of the particles and can't gather it.

That's because they are not baubles.  They are items that update your quest off of dialog nodes.  There is no fix for this.

Thanks Kaitheel. I wasn't sure if it was considered a bauble or not so, in doubt, I thought it was better to mention it.

Furtog Ogrebane – Gate Crashers!

The mobs only update if you land the killing blow... and as they rush the defenders, it's quite hard to get it. The way to tringerring those mobs isn't clear and I spent a lot of time running around in the gullet :/

Drinal's Steward - Shades of Drinal: Cardin Protection

After finihsing Furtog and Galen questline, the Shades of Drinal updated, telling me to report to Firiona Vie. When speaking to her, I get a new quest "A Trusted Witness", but no update on the Steward quest. I assume that the quest will update once I'll have done Firiona's quest, but the quest text doesn't point in that direction.

Gate Crashers Quest:

Could not finish this quest. After a relatively short time, the spawned aggro mobs--90% of them did not have a feather. The ones that did, the guards, of which there are obviously too many of them, always steal the kills and even if you hit too, you get no credit most of the time. I spent well over two hours in this spot trying to get updates. It made me want to pull every hair out, tbh. I moved around, went in and out of the forcefield, tried pulling mobs up, you name it. The guards just kept stealing the kills and was hard to compete with like 8-10 of them. This is why I do not do pvp. Please fix this?  =)  And I showed this problem as well as the non aggro npc's attacking my merc problem to a co-worker/gm in game, but making sure you know its still a major problem. I cannot continue the questline without this update.

Thanks for everything! =)

Firiona Vie – A Trusted Witness

I roamed the whole zone from the skies trying to find the "spires". Got a confirmation on the location in chat and finally found the spot where it updated... and there's nothing around. I guess the spires art is not in game yet.For those having the same problem, updating spot is 82.42, 37.10, -355.82

Tal’il Amhenti – Saving Apprentice Prophar

The apprentice is a bit hard to find and could use a PoI. For those searching, he's at 38.75, 31.34, -406.82

"Gehein Some, Loose Some"? Really? Who's the culprit behind this bad pun? ;p *puts it in the same list as the Tsol Ew and Diar Ew*

K’Rin Valdim – Desired Siphon Components

Either I suck at finding those and there's a hidden cache of them somewhere, but I have major troubles finding Eidolite. Could the spawn rate be upped a bit?

K’Rin Valdim – Well Worth the Troubles

No pb here, but for those who might have troubles finding Nita, she's at -387.19, -8.04, -249.74

Note: could Zeeil stop auto-spawning all the time after the timeline is finished? I think I killed him 8 or 9 times so far!

Venox Tarkog – Convenient Conversion

In the opening dialog, Venox says "I can depart this knowledge upon you, if you wish". Shouldn't it be "impart"?Art wise, isn't Venox dead? He's lacking the blueish sheen on him.

I assume some particles effect for the ritual are missing as i twas quite underwhelming to only drop to my knees for a couple seconds.

Connecting ether threads - am I being feeble or is there nothing for this quest to update?  The area is marked but I see nothing to interact with.

Venox Tarkog – Religious Studies

In the final dialog with Venox I say that some power is consuming Drinal, and when asked what is doing it, I answer: "The deaths of Cazic Thule and Rallos Zek. Drinal simply cannot control both deific spiritual energies."

Ok. So either I missed some MAJOR infos in the Eidolon Jungle timeline as I skipped it, or you have a major lore problem. Cazic is dead in EQ1, not in the EQ2 Timeline, and shouldn't be considered as dead in this quest!(opened up a lore thread here)

Deema Mertshak – Mertshak’s Search for a Bite

Deema also doesn't have the blueish sheen of the deads (same problem with Hildan).There was a hungry feral lujien standing in front off her when I brought her mine. I suppose it was the one of somebody who reached her but didn't do the next step. It was a bit weird but probably can't be helped.

Deema Mertshak – Lujien, not Lycan

Venox is doing a tailoring animation while working on the moonstones. I know he's using silk to thread the moonstones, but the jeweller animation would be more appropriate.

Duskrender – Ascension Assistance

Bloodmoon is a bit too weak for being someone with "great prowess in battle". 95+ with more HP would be better than a mere weak 95.

Gate Crashers - The Npcs were taking the credit for my kills, I killed rather a lot of them before I finally got my 4 updates.  I had to nuke the heck out of them hoping to get the credit, I can forsee a lot of people getting frustrated with this.  Is it meant to be this way?

Tal’il Amhenti – Connecting Ether Threads

I don't really understand where this quest is supposed to be in the timeline. I stumbled upon it when coming back to Drinal’s Steward for "Shades of Drinal : Devoted Knowledge" and I don't remember this quest having been available previously.Anyway, I saw several people asking in channel what is needed for this quest. So you're searching for torn and severed black swirls all around the spires. Same as the nether space zoning point graphic but smaller and scattered all around.

Drinal’s Steward - Shades of Drinal : Devoted Knowledge

Entrance to the cave is at -261.62, 2.19, 381.60. Area is lacking a map.It seems we're lacking a recipe to actually convert the living mud into anything on the blessed kin. Ok, recipe is on the floor behind you (-386.45, 13.51, 15.52 ). Spark of Ether for fuel is found on Margo McNerian (-422.52, 9.03, -51.06 ).Recipe asks for a "raw turquoise". Right name for the item is "rough turquoise"Recipe suffers from the same bug as most of the recipes currently, aka it doesn't find your primary component and you need to click "choose" and the double click on component to activate it.

Got to end (yay) and got merc.  He disappeared as soon as I zoned and have none at all.  Is he meant to be lost?  Does everyone really have to hike back to ss for another?

Madyl D’Lareth – Unkempt Desires

The dreary scuttler I killed at -41.43, -4.50, 428.72 spwaned 2 dead dreary scuttlers corpses instead of one.btw, the map for the docks is off, dock is in the wrong place.

Wegadas – Augur Aggression

 I briefly saw the quest feather near the elemental soldiers on the water platform before they disappeared (the feathers disappeared). I had the impression that the feathers fell into the ground and disappeared instead of staying attached to the mob names. It's not the first time that I see feathers flickering but the only time that I have target mobs without feathers.

Clickable small journal (-18.74, -3.67, 544.60 ) – The Writings of an Unkempt Druid

Is that quest supposed to be a signature quest? It has the special signature baubbles, but it feels weird, being a clicky quest.

Locs are: 269.85, -2.11, 507.49285.87, -0.97, 530.23305.79, 1.88, 543.49345.05, 7.34, 552.11399.69, 9.32, 584.73

Drinal’s Steward - Shades of Drinal: Dreadcutter at World’s End

Usual tips for those lost in the boat. You need to kill the boss and open a chest in his room.Then you'll have a monolith of Theer to harvest at 10.87, 26.04, -93.09 . Next step is back on Obol Plains, just near the entrance of the Dreadcutter.No problems with the quest but the constant respawning in the boat is a pain.

Drinal’s Steward - Shades of Drinal: Fate’s Crusade

I think the first mobs are too hard for some classes. It was quite hard for my 95 conjuror (master/quest/baubble geared) and I think a huge number of classes will not be able to make it.

Bug with the merc. When you die upon Drinal (if you try to land any hit you take aggro and die), yo urespawn at the entrance but the merc doesn't follow you and disappears. Zoning out and back in allows the merc to respawn properly and you can grab it back.

A mortal spawns during the final dialog with Drinal. named "Other2"?

Very nice reward! I don't suppose there's a way to store your previous merc somewhere to be able to get it back later? Those with rare mercs will scream bloody murder.

That /loc is right in the center of the three tent wayward thug camp.  I didn't find her there, nor did she pop after I wiped out the hostiles.

I also ran all over the town spamming a /tar Nita macro, and I can't locate her.  Does she despawn at times?

She definately was in the center for me. Perhaps she moves? I got her loc by asking a guard in Cardin.

It might be that she has troubles respawning (once per server update or ultra-long respawn timer). After speaking to her, she runs away and is now in Cardin ward for me, in her office. Perhaps she has troubles resetting when someone moved her.

Drinal’s Steward - Shades of Drinal: Dreadcutter at World’s End

Hubby told me, and I think he's right, that the monolith could use some graphical update. It's pretty small and looks irrelevant while being a pretty powerfull item.

On a side note, is there some kind of follow up with Firiona Vie ? I searched for her in the world (outside Ethernere) and couldn't find her. Sure, I didn't roam every single place, and so I wanted to ask before searching more.

with the forge u need to buy the ethereal dust or something like that at the provisioner. then u need to pick up the recipie inside the forge house. also if u using profitui u need to reload default ui or it will crash(atleast it did to me cause of conflicting tradeskilling windows im guessing)

but it should be clickable anyways i think

For the forge: make sure you don't have a custom UI file named "eq2ui_tradeskills.xml" in your UI folder

Grab the recipe on the floor next to the forge or you won't see anything when clicking the forge (-386.45, 13.51, 15.52 )

Spark of Ether for fuel is found on Margo McNerian (-422.52, 9.03, -51.06 )

Raw Turquoise is in fact Rough Turquoise (T2 common gemstone. If you happen to be guilded in Heroes of Test I put a stack in Guild Bank 2)

If the recipe doesn't recognize the goo,  click the "choose" button near the component and double click on the goo to select it.

Recipes often say "Raw [something]".  They say this when any aspect of that particular component can be used.  In this case, you can use ANY Turquoise.

She's at that location, but she has a view predicate on her.  You will need to be on the specific quest steps in order to see her.  Even when another player sends her running off, the one you need to speak to and release is still there, just hidden by view predicates.

Nor will you find them.  From my investigations into the issue today, it appears to me that it's an issue with the art asset itself.  I have sent the error messages to our art lead.  Hopefully, it will be resolved soon!

**Update!

Issue identified!  The art fix will be for the next art update, which should be tomorrow (11/6).
