Collection Quest Ground Spawns

    I don't understand enough about the mechanics, apparently, because the spawn point seems to have nothing to do with nothing. I see the object, I click on the object, the server recognizes that I have clicked upon the object, the server reacts by opening my inventory and destroying the object. Huh, what? Seems to me that the malfunction is in getting the object from the ground to my client.

    I realize that some spawn locations may be untargetable, and therefore out of reach and unclickable -- I see that as another issue entirely. Those spawn points need attention, sure.

    Oh come on now... really?
  3. Elizabeta Augur

    How do you expect us to get these?

    Oh wait, there isn't.

    right now every single collectible in teh ice castle in kael i bugged like that too, disappears when clicked. kinda furstrating when im guessing its the place to get icy artifacts as all the other storm giant areas seem to only be giving me other collections. also sucks: shared spawnpoints between collections. the fairie ones arent up anywhere right now and im guessing its bc you ahve to wait til they spawn instead of the others.

    bugged items are one thing, but not when everything's bugged, like trying to do the fear in pieces one once theyve all spawnedi n the middle. the bugged pieces dont seem to repop in non-bugged locations since theyre not sayign they were pickedu p theyre jsut disappearing rather htan repopping somewhere. also bugged: most of the locations in evantil in the upper canopy are inside the centers' wood so you can see them if you have the spell effects on, but cant click them no matter how big or little or waht angle you're at, you'reo nly seeing the spell effect but cant ever click teh source which is below thesurface

    To add the bug list on this quest....cant use the aug from the reward as it can not be placed in any armor

    Over the weekend we visited Kael to do some of the mercenary quests. I was able to pick up one for sure, but all the others (as folks have been saying) poofed off my cursor. Same thing when my husband tried to pick them up as well.

    Any ETA on a fix for these collection item issues? It's one of the big selling points of the expansion, after all.

    There was a shard for some part of the pally epic, a ground spawn in Old Bloodfields, I think, if you ducked down on the ground, you could almost see it. Had to click 100 times to actually get it on the cursor. This sounds more like how when I would throw bags or items on the old guild hall floor for a toon on another account to pick up, they could pick it up and I would continue to see the bag. When i picked up the (non-existent) bag, it poofed on the cursor. Some sort of lag, maybe?

    I was boxing Xorbb missions and saw a collection groundspawn, it poofed on pick up. On the other toon, the little yellow bulb still showed up. I didn't bother to try again, as in the past the result was the same.

    Fun little content, these collections. Sad it's not working as intended.

    The collection for Icewing is completely shot for me. I kept picking up pieces until they all spawned inside a dragon statue's head, making them un-clickable. Until zone resets or patch, that one collection itself (I'm missing just one piece,dagnabbit) is impossible. Stupid dragon is hoarding mah pieces! (and worse off, right next to a trap egg)

    But they're fun, nonetheless. The only ones I dislike drop from mobs that barely have anything to do with tasks or none at all, like drunken fairies in Kael. Thank Rodcet that players sell 'em from time to time, for I'd be depressed at how much I'd have to camp for that last drop piece.

    until they fix this they coudl liek, do a scheduled zone repop eveyr 12 hours or something, jstu give everyone 15minutes warning if theyre killing a named or soemthing

    Yeeaah, not a chance. =p
  16. Tegila Augur

    why not, theyve done zone repops before to fix groundspawns like in SL, repopped EW for bunnies etc. jsut have it scheduled til they do a patch. doesnt have to be 12hours but gotta do something

    This is very frustrating checking whole zones and having 90% or more just disappear. Would be nice to have an update on a fix for this issue.
  18. Tegila Augur

    yeah this has been an issue since beta, either its really difficult for htemj t o fix or they don't care. in either case, zone repops would alleviate some of hte problem in the meantime. even with all our crashes this weekend all the buggable items are 100% bugged and have been for days. these thigns gonna turn into permacamp spots everytime tehres a patch lol

    The faerie collection set is not dropped, it is ground spawns. The dropped set for kael is the mustaches

    Been playing this game since 1999. Long time fan.

    I loved the collection quests in EQ2. Was great to run around and look for stuff when you wanted to play but not get too serious.

    Sony made it one of the bullet points for RoF. And you bring this product to the table. I have three quests left I can't complete because of fubar'd collection items and zones.

    What makes me the angriest though is the lack of response from anybody on progress and what they intend to do about it.

    I am sure it's going to get fixed but some freaking response that our voices are heard and an eta on fix would be great.

    C'mon Dev's let us know something.
