Woot! The Planes of Prophecy dungeons are open, and now the signature quests are available, too.

The first quest of the signature quest line is offered by Aunsellus Tishan, on Scintillating Spires isle.

When you find bugs, or want to post some feedback, please be as specific as possible, and include:
  • Quest name
  • Quest journal text
  • Zone name
That should help us identify the issues and get them corrected. Thank you!

there is a thread for the signature line. and why do you assume youre bugged because youre not getting your updates as fast as you would like? keep searching. stay vigilant. dont give up because youre not achieving what you want to achieve in a short amount of time. besides, if I really had any other info for you right now i would help you but im stuck on the part youre on. best foot forward bud

The Fount of Power buff lasts for 4 seconds in Coliseum (typo) of Valor: Hero's Devotion. Mobs hitting very, very hards and Bloodcurdlers (big bat things) drain 100% mana in one hit. It's gonna be tough!

I even deleted entire quest, the mats, and restarted it and still can't see the salt or sapphires.

You are not the only one, I spend two full hours this morning, and I could not see the blue sapphire rock. I was in the slug area looking int he small ravines. People in my group, would stand on top of them, they could see them and mine them, but I couldn't. And No I could not get the little hand symbol to show up so try and mine it any way. I didn't even try to look for the salt. Which was said to be in the same area.

I turned my graphics up, I balanced it, I put it on extreme performance, I took off ambient lights, I took off my lanterns, the light blue was so damn bright, and I am assuming so was the rock that needed to be mined. So, everyone got the updates of sapphires and salt, and I ended up going to bed. Going to try again shortly. I was told the rocks looked like the veiled rocks, and I can see those just fine. My friends are amused, I am not Frown

I had the same bug. The buff stay on only if you are in combat, otherwise it drops in a matter of seconds.

keep recasting the buff when you fight mobs. its easy to get through. the buff becomes maintained once youre in the first solo instance. it even persists through death.

Quest: Legacy of Power: Secrets in an Arcane Land
Quest giver: Aunsellus Tishan
Quest text: Follow the instructions provided etc.

So far, this is maddening. I have killed about a dozen ignus Peak Whirlers, and only 1 ignus manaflare so far. About half the ones I killed fell to the side of the peak where I couldn't loot it, the other half were empty corpses (except the 1 I got so far). While waiting on respawn, I went in search of the sapphires and salt, which I found none of at all. Please give more specific instructions to make sure we're looking in the right place for sapphires and salt, and please either make the ignus peak whirlers drop it's component every time, or make them more plentiful.

Edit: Finally did find a single sapphire. Maybe make all the things a bit more plentiful?

Even when people jump up and down on salt/sapphire nodes many people cannot see them or target them to harvest. I was able to see and harvest the sapphire but I cannot/could not see the salt nodes
I turned in Fount Duty and could no longer see the sapphire nodes either.
One of the people I'm talking with hasn't turned in any quests and is unable to see either sapphire or salt nodes.

Note: Bugged toon on beta is Nimlis. I doubled checked and the recipe is still in my recipe book and I am continuing to get Ignus Manaflares from the various mobs that drop them.

Aaaaand.. I just saw one. But the person I'm speaking with in game cannot.

so feedback without looking at what other said.

I dislike it, and I'm only at the start.

I found the spires, I then got to the teleporter, got a parchment, was a receipe so I scribed it .. and now I need materials.
No idea where to find them, no feathers on mob, no places to search and no hints, no name on track harvestable.

fortunately there's the wiki. .. oh yes .. no feather on the quest giver either.

si I'm looking for stuff, go to the locations on wiki .; see other people runing around, they certainly look for the same thing as me .. nothing to click on, nothing that pops out of the ordinary, nothing on mouse hover.

so, I'm on 4th step of 1rst quest and already stuck, even with wiki's help and locks.

is it everfrustration ?

so I'm just gonna stop the signature line for tonight, because I'd rather doing something fun, than look for something unknown and

After a few hours of searching, I had a guildie stand on top of a Luminus Sapphire and the Cirrussean Salt, I could not see either one. Zoomed in, changed graphics like the poster above. Nothing.

Ok so I went to another one of the crafting areas I have faction with, and picked up the same scroll up again. Went back out into the overland and found the salt right away. Few feet away, got my second salt. Then went to area for the sapphire, and found one of those right off. Go figure, thats why we test it.

Good news! There's a few serious fixes headed to Beta with the next update:
  • Legacy of Power: Secrets in an Arcane Land – Cirussean Salt and Luminia Sapphire is easier to see now.
  • Legacy of Power: An Innovative Approach – An erratic clockwork is now present, whether on quest or not, to open the tube grate. Also, the grate should now remain open, once opened.
Thank you to all of you who jumped on this as soon as you have!

Each of the three tradeskill areas has the scroll... that is if you've done the prerequisite for each one. They are separate from one another, so depending upon your quest progression with that faction, you may be able to see the scroll in their tradeskill area, or you may not.

The one named in Torden, Bastion of Thunder is a raid encounter? in solo zone? also the portal on the ice side to get to the last ice named ( sorry for not remembering his name he is a giant) is not always up.

Quest: Hero's Devotion
Journal Text: Speak with the Truthbringer
Zone Name: Coliseum of Valor: Hero's Devotion

My husband and I ran the first Coliseum of Valor together. After defeating the invaders, we hailed Mithaniel Marr. One of us clicked through the conversation faster than the other and Marr up and ported out of there before the other could finish and get the update. We tried taking the sword to the real coliseum but they couldn't get the update. We tried going back to the Plane of Magic and zoning back in but we got separated, one going to the invaded instance and the other going to the real one. It would be nice if either (A) Mithaniel doesn't disappear for each person until they finish the conversation, (B) if he does leave too soon, you can get the update in the real coliseum instance or (C) players can help each other out even if they already completed the invaded instance.

Quest: Legacy of Power: An Innovative Approach
Journal Text: Obtain the Magnetic Ether Compensator
Zone Name: Gears in the Machine maybe? I left sorry

The Manaetic Behemoth basically two shots me then he disappears and does not respawn at all. Also if you jump down the steps at the end of this zone in to the rust pit....there's no way out and you get stuck.

[BUG] Group issue
Quest: An Innovative Approach
Zoning group issues (maybe)

Group was at the PoM portal area (overland). One person went afk. We were questing together prior to this, but we've done betas before and figured this part was going to be solo updates.

I went ahead and zoned into Coliseum. I was still part of the group (other person afk as a reminder).
I proceeded to do the stuffs, and kill the other things, got stuck by not being able to open tube (no big deal, I'll just scour forums/wiki/etc for some hints). It's how I figured I'm stuck because no access to tube. All this time I was still in the zone.

In the meantime... other person returns and they go to work their quest (we're still grouped). Gets to the part where they need to zone into Plane of Innovation: Masks of the Marvelous and they got put in my instance!

Which I guess it's intended later on when doing solo zones but not for the quest?

So now they have a timer to reset and hopefully will be able to do the quest. Thought I'd mention this, just in case.

Legacy of Power: Through storms and mists

Obtained the funnel shavings easy enough, but the mob that presumably leads to last name (Laef Windfall) for the glowing shard glass is bugged. Stoneskins at 1% and his AOE one shots no matter where you stand.

could there be something obvious in the quest journal saying you need faction ? because it's not clear.

and one shouldn't have to do repeatables each time and check if he sees the parchment or not.


plus, forcing us to grind for a faction so early in the signature line is a bit harsh :/. .. and u need to remind people they should only choose 1 faction, because I've already seen people take all quests from all early quest givers and then .. be stuck even longer because they need to refarm all the faction loss when they finally realise they need to stick with one of the 3.

thanks
