Fixed Internally Overseer quests disappearing

    Yeah it's like it cycles. I came back to 6/5 today on an account/server that I haven't had 4/5 on in a long time. Tried to figure out which wasn't started yesterday but couldn't remember. Maybe I will start logging it. Probably not, that's a little beyond what i want to commit to this effort, especially when it seems like none of it has anything to do with how we proceed on our end.

    Still, with two 4/5's and a 6/5 in the last few days, preceded by two weeks of no problems, the cyclic theory could have merit. Until somebody comes and posts that they are seeing the opposite. If I think of anything new I'll report back. Thanks to any who are helping try to figure this out.

    Going to keep track of what I lose and recover in this post.
    I'm not sure how useful that will be but it's something at least.

    It's clearly going through a 'phase'
    Quest missing again this morning - that's at least one every 12 hr cycle for 4 cycles after a couple of weeks of it working well
    What changed?

    EDIT: And 12 hours later, 1 quest missing again - that's at least 1 disappeared in each of 5 12 hr cycles

    Lost all 5 On Ely a couple days ago.. next day logged in and had 6 to complete, so at least 1 missing showed up..
  6. Skuz I am become Wrath, the Destroyer of Worlds.

    Lost another today I wonder if these are being lost when the task list is being updated?

    I noticed too that along with the task going missing so too do the Agents on the missing quest vanish from your agent list rather than showing there as (questing).
  7. Andarriel Everquest player since 2000

    On one of my accounts ive lost all 5 quest on back to back days kinda sad :(

    Lost another one today

    Pretty sure you are not getting your "missing" ones back, but getting someone's lost one.
  10. cadres Augur

    OK - this is a first
    Very much Not a good first
    No problems since the patch - until tonight
    ALL quests missing on one account
    (no I didn't forget to do them, I logged that toon in especially for that 12 hours ago)

    Just WTF?!
  11. OlavSkullcrusher Augur

    I made heroic characters on Bristlebane and started overseer from scratch there. I got some extra quests when I hadn't lost any yet. They were quests that were the right level for my overseer on that server, so I wouldn't think it was someone else's missing quests. Maybe just random ones from the previous rotation?
  12. MiataDriver Augur

    It seemed to stop happenning to me for a while, but now it is back to regularly losing a quest, then regaining it sometime in the future.
  13. Skuz I am become Wrath, the Destroyer of Worlds.

    (11) lost & (4) reappeared across 5 accounts & 3 servers since I started tracking my overseer.
    Most of mine (9) have been lost on AB.
  14. Yinla Ye Ol' Dragon

    From what I have noticed these are returning ones from the previous round which like the disapearing quests haven't saved that they have been completed. 2 sides of the same coin.

    Disappearing quests - activated quests don't save when started
    Appearing quests - completed quests haven't saved that they have been completed.

    You can see that clearly if you look back over my early posts where I posted logs everytime I used Overseer.
  15. cadres Augur

    Not quite accurate IME
    I have had many many disappearing quests which have 'saved' - ie they appear on that and other toons on the account through zoning; switching toons etc. But they then disappear sometime before or when they become due
    Skuz likes this.

    Update: We are adding additional logging to better understand this issue in the July update. Thanks for your patience.
  17. Fenthen Augur

    Try using a live server, instead of a private internal server. The quest finishes and starts aren't always saved to the server, so they revert when players zone/camp out.

    Another day, another new variant on this bug...
    Just checked 3 accs before bedtime. All had 5 x 12 hr quests running, all due to end at approx the same time
    One acc had lost a quest. Redid that
    Two accounts were doing, among others, the Guard the Guardian quest. Both had finished and reward claimable - just under 5 hours early. Now I'm very happy to have that, but it's clearly not what should be happening
  19. Niskin Clockwork Arguer


    I'm assuming the logging they added was for Live, but even if it was just for Test, I know myself and a few others that do Overseer there, so they will see it happen there eventually too.
  20. cadres Augur

    Again, almost to a couple of weeks and no problem
    Then one account has a quest missing for each of the last 3 12 hour periods. At least on the last 2 occasions, this was by far the most desirable quest
