Has anyone gotten past the first Plane of Fire zone? I have killed all the nameds I think. I ended on a giant named Pyrefist. Got a message about it "heating up" but can't seem to find anything to update the sig line.

Elements of Destruction: Visitation Day takes you to the Plane of Justice jail cells, and while in there you can collect components and craft 'Planar Web Shackles' but then the sentry of justice is immune to it's effects so it seems there is no current use for the item. Perhaps it is meant to be in a later version of the zone (assuming you go back again since Tayil N'Velex is in another jail cell, has a quest feather, but none of the dialog options with her results in anything) and accidentally appears for you the first time you go in there even though you can't use it yet?

So do I, I tried a lot of things to actually see the end boss across the island just next the first tower on the left at zoning. It seems to be a ventilator on the ground to port you there but it doesn't work ... so seems buggy.

Elements of destruction: Pursuit of Justice
Maelyn Starpyre

step : meditate in the Grand Librarian office

I gathered bark, placed it and didn't see any meditation sparks. Obviously, I was in the North Wing Shaks and not at all in the Office which is the the south side of the mezzanine. It's not intuitive at all to place the bark so far down then climb all the way up to meditate. I assumed the bark was a distraction while I meditate.
Could you give additionnal cues as to the fact that the two locs are not at all in the same area?

Yes leed. Further along the Signature line you are required to head back into justice zone and create the web shackle to use on the names in there who drops the key to open the cell in order to talk to the dark elf to update the quest then zone into the isle of vuul. Sleepy now. More by weeks end maybe? also, I didn’t not see any lever in doomfire solo. Maybe I was too tired? Fresh eyes on it in a few days if this thread isn’t updated by then.

  • carbonite cell key - A replacement can be found in zone if lost.

There was some issues with the progression through "Doomfire: The Enkindled Towers [Heroic]". Kander is tracking them and attending them over in the "Doomfire: The Enkindled Towers [Heroic] [Solo]" thread.

Considering that the two steps specify different room names in the quest directions, I think a zone map will help this issue, a lot. That way when you see it says, "Meditate in the Grand Librarian's Office" you'll know if you're in the right room or not.

I edited some of the quest journal text to better fit. It should be in with tomorrow's Beta update.

Elements of Destruction: Shadow Casting in the Dark
Plane of Justice: Balgros has a relatively high resolve buff (890 - I do know the new gear has a ton of resolve). With 893 resolve it still took me about 7 minutes to kill him
Bellengere's Dark Spire: Fathid Zastim won't seem to take any damage and hits extremely hard

Place a rune on the mural symbol for the Plane of Air/Smoke/Lava/Earth/Mud/Water/Fog

The runes do not appear when they are placed on the mural symbol of the planes.

I find that the web shackle doesn’t work at all. There is no root that takes place when casting the item. I’ve died countless times and can not pass this step. Even with 998.9 resolve I can get him down to 64% then he just kills me. Signature line shadow step in justice solo. Sorry

Elements of Destruction Layers of Order - (Cleanse the Thudos Corestone) after the 19 body update kills. I reset the zone to see if that would fix it, still the same issue, click update is under the floor, or there's no mouse over option at all

[110] Elements of Destruction: Shadow Casting in the Dark(Heroic)
Balgros

I'm stuck at this mob too and its very frustrating. I spoke to a few friends that didn't have a problem but I'm over 890 and he is still killing me in three hits.

Fathad Zastim on isle of vul… Like so many others I can't even get 1% off his Health and he does insane damage (im at 922 resolve).
Devs please remember that the signature line will for most players be the first thing we do and most likely something we will have to do in our old gear. You can't have the difficulty set so high that we need the new heroic or even raid gear!

Yeah so I would like to know how people are advancing through the elements of destruction shadow casting quest. The names in the solo zone doesn’t seem to be difficult yet as a summoner I’m not understanding this encounter. There doesn’t seem to be anything special about him except that it takes incredible amounts of dps to kill him. Dps is not my issue however 998 resolve would seem to work. No merc in zone. Am I missing something? I realize it’s beta and that people are passed this quest already. I’ve never had an issue in beta before so curious about this one named and his mechanics/resolve check.

The bookworm just about insta-killed my Fury after it drained all mana (in free gear plus some quest upgrades). As an FYI, I have yet to venture out of the library on quests so if there is some magic bullet item out there to make this doable, I haven't found it yet.

For me, there was absolutely no time to do anything in response to the attack:

Meditating, Attacked, Mana Drain/Dead, Merc Killed within a second or so.

The mob has the buff that kills anyone not protected by Fount of Power, but you can't activate Fount of Power in that zone.

Grouped up (full group) and was able to kill it, but no one got the update. Looks like the quest then broke - could no longer meditate or click the book to spawn the worm. A new person joined the group and was able to spawn the worm. Killed it and got the update.

Lore/text:
Elements of Destruction: Pure Adventure

When I return to Maelin after completing Doomfire: The Enkindled Towers the text choice I have the ability to say to him is 'Absolutely! It's defenses seem to have been weakened. Elementals from other planes were there!'

My first thought was - hey, that's a bald faced lie, I may barely know this guy Maelin but there's no reason to lie like that.

In Doomfire: The Enkindled Towers [Solo] everything you fight is fire based mobs (or at least their graphics make them all appear fire based). Was there suppose to be a wind/ice/air or some other kind of elemental in Doomfire? Seems odd to tell Maelin elementals from other planes were in there when all the mobs in the zone seemed pretty solidly doomfire/fire based.
