Someone has stated that they don't all show until all the elemental wind mobs are down. if this is correct, then suggestion, change the timing of the message to not appear until enough have been cleared.

The message appears when you kill the one mistral wilder encounter that stands on top of the line of generators. It's just there to point folks in the right direction. It also displays the color order in the message. A rainbow spotlight appears at the location of the generators after defeating all of the wilder encounters. I do not plan on adding more clues than this.

All 7 pop when you kill all of the mistral wilders (the djinn with the 2 wind elementals), there are 7 of them in close proximity to this area, then they will all light up and work fine =)

As everyone else has said, I am 17/19 for ephemeral gusts, and I have killed everything but the budgies.

I think the Budgie/Parrots are for the last named, I think the first time I ran it, I killed everything, and the last name didnt have any adds, when i skipped them, since they didnt drop any items for the sig line, the last named had adds.

Quest: Elements of Destruction, Gusts of Order

I have just finished killing Sterej Swiftwing, evidently the strats changed since I was in here last. The eggs do not wiggle anymore he has adds instead (Ii liked the eggs Frown . The notes have been removed, it looks as if he takes no damage while the adds are up and im guessing if you don't kill them fast enough he heals? Anyways, It took me forever to kill him. While I am by no means the strongest of toons I've managed to make my way through but this fight took me forever, really. He is way, too hard compared to all the other names in all the other zones. He needs to be fixed. Eek

The eggs were wiggling as of around 2AM CST this morning. The eggs are spread out over a arhe area, one uphill of the other, so maybe you just missed the one that was moving?

Looks like the eggs may not spawn if you left the zone and returned to the same instance some time later. This will be fixed with the next update. Attacking Sterek will force the eggs to spawn in their nests.

A few things I believe may be buggy in this zone.

Sterek Swiftwind took me 62 minutes to beat. I engaged in the first part of the area he is in and only got one egg emote. I missed it and never got another one so the egg buff he had stayed the whole time.

Also, I have pretty much cleared the zone and only received 10 of the ephemeral gusts. Thinking it shouldn't take multiple runs of a solo zone to beat this quest, but I could be wrong.

Thanks.

Just finished running this zone for the questline. When I got to Sterej, he only emoted once about the eggs and only two of them ever wiggled. I kept checking the others and not a peep from them. Additionally, when I finally killed him, the portal back to the library did not spawn.

Eggs are on a timer, so the faster you kill Sterek the less eggs you'll have to deal with. Regarding the portal - found the bug, so will get that fixed. Thanks!

I didn't kill him that fast. From about 60% or so, he had the buff on that reduced damage and no more eggs wiggled and no emote about them.

I only got 15/19 for sig line quets update from here will have to run it a second time , was in solo version. Also fighting Sterek took forever compared to the rest of the zone, his buff seemed to stay most of the fight. Only had the egg emote once, broke it and never happened again.

Did the signature line a second time, this time grouped with a friend. I noticed we seemed to get quest bits from chests which helped. After we had killed the last named, we were at 17/19. Fortunately we found some wandering long range dudes near the zone in and were lucky enough to get the last 2 we needed. If you prefer not to up the drop rate on the quest bits, maybe just have a few of the mobs with the quest items respawn til the quest items are at 19/19.

Heroic

Beaknik - Power drain on this mob seems very large, whole group out of power constantly a few moments after the fight starts. Not sure if the heroic version should have a worm appear as in the solo to harvest on getting the "Beaknik's hungry" text but none visible to harvest.

You have to cure the detriments as fast as possible. Everyone should be using potions to self-cure as well. That's true for most of the power drains in Beta.

Why are there wildfires in Eryslai: Midnight Abby [Solo] and vinegusts in Doomfire: Elements of Rage [Solo]. Shouldn't the vinegusts be in Eryslai and the wildfires in Doomfire?

Zone: Eryslai: The Midnight Aerie [Solo]
I'm on Sigrdifa, my fairly low DPS paladin. With Fount of Power, she has Resolve 1270, Potency 115K, ~300-350M DPS. She is accompanied by her healer merc Kenny. Both are fully geared up using Mastercrafted/refined gear.

(1) Beaknik: If I'm right, Beaknik summons more adds each time he emotes "Birds of a feather, flock together". The first time, I got one "the Beak Generation". I killed it and switched back to Beaknik, then he called TWO Beak Generations. I just stayed on Beaknik after that, but I can imagine that someone with less DPS than me might find this a little tough, if they get overwhelmed by successive waves of increasing numbers of adds. I'd like to hear from some healers trying this fight.

(2) Velos Skywing and Aelero Skywing: They died with no problems. I tried several ways, but I was never able to interrupt either name's port, so if you're supposed to be able to, I couldn't do it. I just ended up chasing Aelero down after each port.

(3) Xochéntula: The high-ASCII "é" is not displaying properly in the threatlist. As a paladin, I have a number of ways to clear detriments. I have my healer merc curing some. Together, we threw 27 cures in a 4 min 20 sec fight. I used potions, Zealous Smite, Castigate V, and Cure Spells. Also, being a paladin, I have blue AOEs out the wazoo, and I used them extensively. Again, I'd like to hear from some healers trying this fight. PROBLEM: I'm concerned that someone without as many ways to cure, relying on potions and lacking much in the way of AOEs may have real trouble with this fight. This may need some adjustment.

(4) Prosperon the Tempest: Love the rainbow bridge. This if a fun fight is you can kite and still do damage from a distance. I don't think a healer merc is much help with this one... I had to Lay on Hands for Kenny once because he was getting beat up. In my tank armor, I wasn't taking much damage, because I was well geared, shooting my bow, and constantly moving. For some people, learning to kite, start a big Ascension, then time hitting a yellow globe at just the right time may require more coordination and brain cells than I typically have before coffee. I haven't seen many people complaining about this fight, so maybe everyone is getting it just fine. PROBLEM: The exit portal is way too small and hard to see.

(5) Sterek Swiftwind: Fun fight.

SUMMARY: Xochéntula's add's trauma casting may need to be tweaked. The exit from Prosperon's Void Zone needs to be bigger and easier to see.

Ephemeral Gusts for Elements of Destruction: Gusts of Order need to drop off EVERYTHING in the zone. I am 15/19 for the zone. Add them to the spiders and budgies already, please, please!

I see the name correctly on beta with the default UI.

The recast of the adds' dot was a bit too quick so will update that.

And will see about making that exit more visible. Thanks!

Zone: Eryslai: The Midnight Aerie [Solo]

Looking through my logs for the fight with Sterek Swiftwind, the very first time he emotes about the eggs, you get the big yellow warning about the moving eggs:

Sterek Swiftwind/a says, "Egg shell power!"
#FFDC19One of Sterek's eggs begins to shake rapidly!

However, I noticed that every time he emoted thereafter about anything that wasn't his add call or griping about you breaking an egg, there were moving eggs, but the big yellow warning never happened again. Is that intentional?

The emotes that appeared to signal moving eggs:
  • Egg shell power!
  • Let's get it on!
  • There is a reason I tend to these eggs!

Also, he made a grand proclamation, "The Aerie sings! Give me strength beyond strength!" but whatever effect that had I couldn't tell at all. It didn't seem to change the fight any.

Zone: Eryslai: The Midnight Aerie [Solo].

When you are lighting up the rainbow bridge, you get the message "What color shall you illuminate?"

"Shall" is the first person verb only. I shall, we shall; but you will, he/she/it will, they will.

Thus this message s/b "What color will you illuminate?".

Yes. I often do this for special events with nameds. It's the initial warning, followed by emotes. It's just to avoid being too spammy.
It's more prevalent in the heroic. He does gain some offensive stats from this in solo, but I didn't want to go overboard with it, as it may be too much for some classes to handle.

I sort of like "Shall" better and according to the Oxford dictionary it's still acceptable. So, Chrol shall choose, if it's not already too late!

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/usage/shall-or-will
In practice, though, the two words are used more or less interchangeably, and this is now an acceptable part of standard British and American English
