Welcome to Planes of Prophecy Beta!

There are three faction quest lines within the Plane of Magic. Please post any bugs and feedback regarding the
Pride Pakiat adventuring quests within this thread.

When you are describing an issue, be sure to include:
Quest name
Quest giver's name
Quest journal text

That will help ensure that the issue will be examined and tended to by the appropriate developer, as soon as possible! Thank you!

Quest names: Water Canvas, Further Applications
Offered by Olinnisk near -63.28 11.68 75.16
Quest Journal Text:
Water Canvas - Search for clues near the river
Further Applications- Return to Olinnisk in Khali'Yrzu

After inspecting the bubbling dark water for the quest water canvas, I was immediately offered the next quest in the line "Further Applications". I completed the next steps in Further applications by finding the NPC named "Mlheda" with the mob in a bubble and killing it. It now instructs me to return to Olinnisk in Khali'Yrzu, but she is still located in the plains where water canvas/futher applications were offered.

I am unable to "Speak to Olinnisk" who has the quest book over her head because she is still expecting and update for the prior quest, Water Canvas. She is not visible in Khali'Yrzu.

Quest: Right in the Nose
Problem:
Quest says "Annuk'ka is attacking!" The problem is 1) they respawn as a NON aggro, npc which you can attack. 2) If you kill it, the quest doesn't update and it will instantly respawn every time you kill it

When you are describing an issue, be sure to include:

An eye for art
given by Lemisyka
Quest journal text

The text in the quets journal states should fine the updates in metetherial plains and the updates are actually found
in the stratford acording to the main loc points on the map.

A good deal of these I think were addressed with the patch today, and will probably just require you to drop and retake the quests in question. HOWEVER, I'm going to look at each one and make sure that's the case so that no one gets in a bugged state unnecessarily.

I'm probably going to ping you guys for specifics in case I can't replicate the issues. Thanks for the reports!

For those reporting that Olinnisk is simply replying, "You must be patient!", is she in a casting animation when she says that, or is she just standing there, enjoying the view of the river (as one does)?

More info on cultural understanding. The quest giver does not display a quest feather when this quest is available to start after the second repeatable quest faction grind.

She is just standing there. Deleting the quests and getting them again doesn't help. I have about 3 "stuck" quests that wont complete. (Learning Their Place, Right In the Nose, Water Canvas)

It almost seems most of the issues are because the quest NPCs are duplicated in 2 different places. Could this bug out the quest scripts?

No, that shouldn't bug any scripts (running in this zone, anyway).

With Olinnisk, I think she isn't clearing a temp value being placed on her, which will bug her for everyone. I'm going to find another way to do her scene that isn't prone to that kind of breaking.

Front duty/retaking the test repeatables

the faction amount for these seem to be a tad on the low side at 850 gained

Can the scripts be fixed without repatching the client?

+1 to

Quest Name: Light Studies

I have been running around the Meth Plains for about 20 minutes on various graphic settings and I have yet to see one of places to put down a wisp trap.

So, after about 30 minutes I found my first trap. It wasn't near the Meth Plains as indicated by the quest. It was nearly all the way to the Fonts of Arcanum. I think the area of where these things spawn need to be reduced so they are closer in line with where the quest says they are supposed to be.

Also, I found one that someone else had placed and I couldn't place one there as well. Given how spread out these are, it will be quite annoying when this goes live and we can't use the same trap placement as other people.

Yeah, I'm going to do a couple of things to make this more obvious. I'll change the color of the outlined box so it stands out more (and might even add a secondary effect so that it is even more apparent), and I'll increase the number of spots that you can place them.

As a heads up, this will not be in the next patch, but likely will be in the one after that.

Using the tablet on non-aggro mobs, should cause the mobs to aggro. Can foresee confusion, as to how the tablet is to be used.

Quest name: Art Class Drop Out
Alishinu

It was stated before but the mobs that you kill for this quest are in Aetharscar. The quest needs to direct people to the right spot or it just leads to frustration.

The Resonant Ziolite is tiny and hard to see. It needs to be bigger and perhaps need better direction. I was directed to it as being near where the wisps traps went and I still could barely see it when checking the various spots where the traps spawn.

I believe the majority of these have been addressed now, and should be live with the next beta update. Light Studies, however, will be fixed on the update after this. What was fixed should be in the beta notes, so let me know if you are continuing to see any of those issues.

However, those of you who ended up bypassing steps or quests will likely find yourself in a broken state, which won't be corrected with many of these fixes. In that case, you'll need to either recopy the character, or start another one to get out of the state.

Thanks again for all the feedback.
