It better not be Velious.  I'd hate to see Velious implemented in this new anti-contested, anti-raid, ezmode lack of progression style.

Either Odus or something where having 99% of the expansion solo and heroic instances wouldn't be such a letdown.

I don't think the game is ready for velious yet. It needs to a be a truly epic expansion.

Odus is doable with the current team/design.

Maybe when the game mechanics are stable and they can devote a good amount of time to the expansion then i say go for velious. Like if odus focused on the tier 9 progression velious could come in as the expansion after and deal purely with the content instead of focusing on proper leveling areas.

Xalmat, if you go from Ganak's Battlement toward traitor's pass from the Venril Crown side, you will find all 6 in the right order as if you were going to the Skleross Camp and then to the Badlands.

They are all there.

** Edit to add, a few quests into this series is bugged however, I had added a question about it in this thread. However, one of the Iksar ladies, the one on the left, her series runs all the way through. I discovered the Turtle Shoulders....**  My bug is below...

In Jarsath Wastes, it seems on the quest "Gathering Rime Stones" the second part "Defeat the ice spirits to collect elemental ice shards." is not responding to killing the icy spirits. The little turtle dudes don't  update, nor do I have an item to indeed destroy anything.

Stuck on the quest dry ice i cant seem to find the mobs for it. Ive run all over the area around the city of the mist. Are the mobs not in or am i blind

Edit-

For the quest Swamp fire defense the green shiny at -509.79,-71.75,481.39 is un clickable.Shiny at -597.73,-46.27,361.36 as well.Shiny at -427.84,-82.21,595.11. The other green shiny at -67.40,-117.97,1,008.79 is unharvestable as well. the other shiny by the gate for outerseb wards was harvestable. Other than that couldnt find the last shiny in trakaraptor alley. Assume the same with it not being able to be harvested.

Ill edit the post as i find more bugs

Quest: Elemental's Amongst Us

Location: Kunzar Jungle - City of Jinisk

First thing I notice is the amount of elementals is sparce. When this hits live there is going to be a lot of players waiting for spawns. There should be more spawns and more spread out.

Nope, no trademark, no website.  I'm guessing you're referring to a post that was made back on April Fools Day, as I vaguely recall that name coming up back then

If you read the dialog when you get the quest, you'll notice that he says to take the armor to someone in Riliss, and even though the quest journal says to take it back to him, if you go to Riliss you will see the NPC that updates the quest.

The bug is in who the quest journal says to talk to next.

Ok the quest elemental task which i picked up from the rime guys out on the ice sheet just says quest description. and for the harvestables it says part description over top of them. ANd infiltration system currently gives +0 faction with rillis.

Hi

In the quest "Clothes off theirbacks" in sathir's span when you finsh it it said to go back to Revliss Dru'shyv

the quest giver but when you go back to him he tell you to turn it to Sliza Xarezia (which is in Rillis)

thought you might want to take a look at that

edit : just noticed someone already point it out  so nevermind

Is the Heavy Lifter questline going to be an access quest for one of the Kurn's Tower instances? It would be nice IMO.

Quick question ...

Are these quests 'linear progressive' or can we do the set in each zone in an order of our choosing?

That is, can I start in Jarsath or do I have to start in Kylong?

You can do them in whatever order you want it seems. They're also level appropriate for the zone, which is a big plus in my book.

Heyya all!

 

I wanted to give a bit of an update.  Due to the sheer number of quests that are being added as part of this update, I’m tackling their bugs a little differently than normal.  I’m being semi organized and doing them by zone.  Last night, I finished doing my first pass on the 30 some quests in Fens of Nathsar.  I don’t know when these will make it to the Test servers, but they’re on their way.  Today, I am starting on the bugs with the Kunzar Jungle quests.

 

Thank you once again, for all of the reports and feedback, it’s definitely helping!

I'm glad they listened and didn't make huge quest chains that cannot be deviated from. This will be awesome for guild groups who want to whip out these quests.

Brigh, there are some quests that are 'linear progressive' but they won't let you do them until you've done the required previous ones.  So, to answer your question, if the quest is offered to you, then you are free to accept it in the order of your choosing.

Found no quest givers in Dregs Landing as mentioned

"A mysterious army has appeared upon the shores of Kunark and begun pillaging the land and slaughtering those that oppose them.  Citizens of Dreg's Landing in Kylong Plains, Sathir's Span in Fens of Nathsar, the City of Jinisk in Kunzar Jungle and Danak's Upper Command Camp in Jarsath Wastes are looking for your help in learning about the invaders and defeating them."

Another update to give!

I just finished doing my first pass on the 20 quests in Kunzar Jungle.  I don’t know when these will make it to the Test servers, but they're on their way.  Next I will be starting on the bugs with the quests in Jarsath Wastes.

Enjoy the weekend!

Nothing at the USPTO listed under Trademarks. I think SOE understands we search the trademarks so this year I have feeling they won't register the trademark until after Fan Faire.

I started working on some of these last night and seem to have done the Jinsk ones through. My observation all these provide neg faction hits to Order of Rime. This begins at max neg to begin with. Will there be a line that will improve that factionn so we could use the vendors out on the Sheet?

Tantric, there is indeed a line of quests that will help you improve your Order of Rime faction.

Maroger, you will want to speak with Revliss Dru'shyv in Sathir's Span for the new quests.

Thanks for the help!

Apparently if you don't know the Sathirian Language you can't speak to him. And the quest for the Sathirian language involving the anonymous black book as a starter makes it difficult to start this quest line. Maybe you could do something to make the quest line easier to start -- right not without the language you can't do the quests.
