Liquid Courage mission

    We cleared for 2 hours then completed task and didn't get any helm messages. Seems a bit harsh for a random awarded item.

    I haven't tried yet, but it sounds like the required kill count is during the escort portion of the mission.

    It might be worth noting that the person who received the bonus reward DID have a "Flask of Fire Water" on them, but so did another member in the group (and they did NOT get rewarded). The Dev's keep referring to a kill count, but no indication if weather or not the "Flask of Fire Water" has anything to do with it any more.

    Gonna try parking him during the escort part and doing a mass slaughter.

    So far I've spent four hours in the mission, completed up through the third ambush, slaughtered 62 mobs and nothing so far. I set myself up at the corridor in the middle by the strife guardians.
  7. Nizou New Member

    Completed with 1.5 hr left on the clock, 76 kills up through ambush three. No helm, pretty much a waste of time till a trigger can be confirmed.

    So I ran it twice. I can confirm that I had him on the escort part both time. First time it bugged out at first ambush and I killed mobs at the bridge. He just stood there when using the commands. (still don't understand why there is go and move). I pulled and killed 25ish mobs up the bridge. Upon death, It hit a random player who didn't have on cursor and red text appeared. Two people needed, both had water so no idea if that thing does squat. After got the first, tried drinking the water on the 2nd toon. Nothing. Dropped mission and restarted. Same thing got the armor and made the drink and took the boss to the 1st ambush spot. I stopped him and started to kill. I thought to try pigs. They seem not to count. Killed 25 of them, no helm. Went back to bridge and killed 25ish mobs and pop, got helm. He would move again, but did not finish mission for lack of interest. So it appears you need to kill 25 in the courtyard that are NOT pigs on escort part. I have NOT tried mobs in the castles or outside the gate.

    Kill 80-90 mobs total=helm. Got 2 in last 2 days.

    I look forward to trying these in the coming days.

    You should read this literally and take the dev's word on it. And keep in mind that not all PoW mobs are created equally, but all of them count toward this achievement -- so if you want this to be easier, kill easier mobs. (big hint)

    Guess they never lowered the threshold on the mob count. Oh well, One can only hope it doesn't, "slip through the cracks" next year.

    30-35 mobs would have been similar threshold to War Games mission, which I think is reasonable.

    Any mob at any stage in the mission ?
  14. Rakknar Elder

    Yesterday we killed 80-90 Hendin Ravagers during the collect armor phase. This awarded the helm.

    The day before, we completed the mission up to the final hail. At this point the helm was not awarded. We then killed Hendin Ravagers until the helm was awarded. Again the amount of mobs killed in the entire mission was about 80-90.
  15. Kongfoo Elder

    I think the 90 mobs that Rakknar is saying is correct but if you zone out, this number resets. I soloed the whole task up to the final named and that was 54 mobs. When I got to the final named, I zoned out to get buffs. After getting buffs, I zoned back in, killed the final named, and started clearing boars. It took 89 boars to get the trophy. So in total I killed 144 mobs. 54 mobs before zoning out and 90 mobs after zoning back in.
  16. Kravitz Augur


    Bad design, so if you wipe on the 30 to 89th mob, and have to zone back in you have to reclear 90 mobs...wow

    We have received the Helm the last 2 times.
    Go in the castle and kill approximately 100 mobs.

    We get red text stating "soandso" has been awarded the helm.
    Since our group only needs the bonus we do not finish the task.
    I am told that it is important to not "zone" so no succor, egress etc.
    If you die do not zone to guild hall just hover and get rezzed.

    I've now done this mission (or at least started it) oh probably 7-8 times over the last 5 days. The first 2 or 3x just intending to complete the mission but, dude after the first ambush stops during the attack but then go or move wont move him. We just got the text with the exit phrase in it. Hailing him at this point did give us all three options, stop, go and exit but after spamming on all toons go he does not move. We sat in zone for an hour or so and he still wouldnt budge. Ok round 2, this time he did move after we cleaned up the first ambush though I had to hail him then highlight his text word go and this got him up to the far corner where the bad Hendins are, we got aggro and had to exodus. Came back and he was at that spot but again as in try 1 he would not move with commands. I noticed when telling him to stop at the beginning you would get a return text from him saying I can stop but we must hurry. Saying stop after gave me not that return text or any, and go again only gave me the exit option. Hailing him would give you the basic I will stop go or you can exit but again commands were not working.
    So, after deciding this mission is bugged, we went after the 75ac helm. On the board above people left and right are supposedly getting the helm with no problems, some with problems, some getting it just randomly yada yada so we tried to test it. 1st, just getting sword and not turning in and burning some 100+ mobs @ zone in (my group was Mage Wizzy Ranger Enchanter Wiz merc Cleric merc so we knocked it out pretty quick) and no helm. We made sure we didnt use and CoH, Exodus or die etc...
    Ok, we turn in the sword and start collecting pieces...yes the gauntlets are the rare... and went through 100 or so pigs because they are easier? Not really, ogres die faster as do the sheartooths imo. Still no helm. We tried again, got a new sword, collected armor around the Minotaur in the castle which took much longer to kill the 100 mobs and still, no helm. Tried making the Belly Ale and clicking it at various times, fire water various times and still nothing. There has to be something wrong with this.

    On a side note, I thought I read somewhere there was a problem with kill count and mercs or pets? We were using earth pet to tank and did have caster merc so maybe that wasnt fixed to credit group with kills towards bonus loot.
