Chronoportal Phenomenon Feedback and Bugs 2024

Discussion in 'Test Server Forum' started by Kaitheel, Feb 9, 2024.

    Chronoportal Phenomenon is now active on Test!

    For years we have been witness to mysterious portals across the Shattered Lands, allowing travel back in time, to the Age of Turmoil. This recurring phenomenon led us to recognize this as the annual phase in which the barrier to the stream of the past is the thinnest, providing us a stable entry point into the Chronoweave. We would be remiss to not take advantage of the opportunity to study these portals and experiment with the powerful magic behind them.

    Find my fellow chronomancers, whether in Myrist, the Coliseum of Valor, Antonica, The Commonlands, Enchanted Lands, Thundering Steppes, Steamfont Mountains, Lavastorm, Sinking Sands, Feerrott, or Moors of Ykesha. They are holding the portals to the Chronoweave open.

    Step into the time between times, where you’ll find access to famed locations during the Age of Turmoil! Come and help investigate this wondrous magic. Whatever Talismans from the Age of Turmoil you may find along the way are yours to keep.

    What is the minimum number of peeps we need for the public quest not kick us out of the zone?
  3. Kasa Well-Known Member

    There are two of the same painting (Opposition) listed for sale on the Chronoportal merchant.

    The new 11 items on the Chronoportal merchant are good!

    Chrol lowered the number required from 6 players to 3 players back in 2019. It should still be set to 3 players.

    The new paintings are wonderful. The EQ1 screenshot paintings from this event are always the best part about it. I hope to someday get a painting of a view of Norrath from the dark side of Luclin, such as in Shadeweaver Thicket or Katta Castellum. Also, I want Katta Castellum as well. :)

    Chrono Weave Talisman
    This item may be placed on the floor of all house types.

    This item cannot have its scale adjusted. Place this jar in your house or guildhall and watch the lightning bugs flit and fly about!

    Is the bold text what you intended to say about this item? Because it looks like the Chronoportal clock.

    I logged into Testserver and took the all the available Quests.

    Now i logged into live and got the Overseer Quest "Chrono Escape - Stop the Clockwork" on Live Server Thurgadin.

    Overseer quests are account wide, so yes if you pick it up on one server and not start you can do it on any other

    Is there a good reason why the new paintings are flagged 'no trade' or is it a mistake? In the past they've been tagged 'no value' and I shop on one toon and distribute via the shared bank. If I have to run every character individually through multiple zones just to do a bit of shopping I'll probably give it a miss :(

    Achievements Patience is Also a Virtue I, II and III does not update in a solo chronoportal. Bug? or does it update in chrono Public Quest version of this?
    if it's updated via doing PQ then maybe achievement can be changed to reflect that

    Past achievements relating to the Ancient Cyclops public quest were only granted from that, so changing the achievement to reflect the Public Quest would be a good idea.

    On the Chronoportal Merchant, the paintings known as "Opposition" and "Towering Cold" are listed twice.

    Thank you all for leaping into this event so quickly! I've made some great fixes due to your feedback. I am not sure when they will be seen on Test, but they should definitely make it in time for the live servers!
    • Patience is Also a Virtue I, II and III - Achievement descriptions now specify one must defeat the Ancient Cyclops in Portal to the Past: Southern Desert of Ro [Public Quest].
    • Duplicate listing of the paintings "Opposition" and "Towering Cold" have been removed from the event merchants.
    • New event paintings obtained from merchants are no longer marked as no trade, but are now marked as no value.
    • Chrono Weave Talisman – Item description now appropriately reflects the item.
    Thank you again! I'm glad these issues are being caught!

    With the new plumes requiring completion of the PQ instead of a solo instance, and the chronoportal event only lasting two weeks, can the achievement flag be made an account unlock please. Alternatively make the plumes themselves heirloom instead of no-trade.

    The original plumes being no-trade/per character achievements was fine since we had six weeks (3 events) to complete 20 runs of a solo instance because we could run them whenever we wanted. With a PQ we have to be online when it spawns (work schedules don't always make this easy) and have enough people there to complete it.

    The chance of getting it completed on alts is going to be near impossible.

    Just got an Erollisi Day 10% off coupon from Nagafen Lair chronoportal.

    Maybe a bug? Or maybe this can't be split off from EDay also still running on Test server
  19. Chikkin Well-Known Member

    on merchant:
    Cold Marble Icy Blades Rack is listed twice.
  20. Kaitheel Developer

    Correct, event coupons are not part of holiday testing on Test. The Chronoportal coupons are only scheduled to be active on this server when the event is live. As Erollisi Day is live right now, the Erollisi Day coupons are the ones that have a chance to drop on Test.
