    Bug according to CS - Thanks to Niami, I completed the Test: Mischeva's Champion so I could get the Development Kudos Reward yesterday. The achievement shows completed on test. The achievement does NOT show up completed on live. I would strongly suggest removing it from live's achievement panel if it can never be completed.

    ETA: According to a 2017 HF feedback and bugs post, this happened back then and was never fixed. https://forums.daybreakgames.com/eq...-feedback-and-bugs.581719/reply&quote=6475034

    what's the point of having that achievement in the first place if you can't brag about it on live ?
    Wouldn't it be better to show of there, to maybe get more people to come to the test server .

    Actually, if they'd open up a Test Copy so we could copy our existing toons to Test, I think more people would help test.

    yea I think that point came up before and they said they have beta for that now .

    Question do magic attacks actually work on he Champions that spawn?

    If I send any of my mages against the Champion they don't seem to move the %damage bar on the target at all. It only starts to move when I am whacking on it with my weapons.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    thanks

    The issue as reported back in 2017 was that a kill on the Test server had not successfully been noted by the Test achievement. I have not heard of that issue since then.

    What you're reporting is that you had expected the achievement to have been marked on your live server, too. That's not the functionality of this achievement. Yes, it is confusing to have the achievement listed on live servers. I wish that we had a means to hide achievements per server, but we do not.

    That still wouldn't give your live character the achievement.
    If you really want to create a character on Public Test, there is literally nothing to stop you from doing so. Since Public Test is a different "realm" than US or Euro (live servers), you can create as many characters on Public Test as you can on US or Euro.
    As an incentive to get more "Testers", upon entering the game on a new character, a bauble to level to 110 will appear in your bag within a few seconds or you can level the old fashion way! Whether you use the bauble or level slowly, the server has a bonus at all times to help as well.
    The community is small, but very helpful. The bonus to playing there:
    • Ability to start at level 110 if you choose to.
    • The community is small but helpful! Be it spells crafted or assistance with quests.
    • You can help test upcoming events before they go live. (one awards an item to claim on live, Test: Mischeva's Champion)
    • Testing and helping find bugs before events are released to live can boost your morale!
    • The server is up during patch times on Live and you can get some play-time in!
    The only "downside" to playing on Public Test:
    • 15-minute warnings when a patch is coming and although most of the time it's later in the evening, it can vary.
    • The lack of coin (platinum) can make it difficult to get started. If a member, this is where those loyalty tokens come in handy to purchase the bag of coin (500 platinum per 5 loyalty tokens)
    • Although there are items for sale on the broker, it is very limited with items due to the fact the community is small and very self-sufficient.
    So anyone, be it a member or free-to-play, is welcomed to create a character on Public Test!

    Other advantages to Public Test (NOT Beta; we get a lot more action than they do now ;->) include 200% xp, usually (can still burn through it ;->), and all your Advanced [Crafter] Volumes are available for sale by an NPC, The Book Worm in The Tower of the Moon (2nd floor) in the city of Maj'Dul. :)

    yea the only problems I see is, people don't want to begin over unless they get a big reward or there is a healthy population .
    One thing I wonder about is , letting people transfer toons to test , not just temporary .
    But this transfer would have to be a lot cheaper , if not for free .

    They did allow that once, back in the spring of 2005. It started off well but by 2007, test population had dwindled some and they stopped using Test players to test raid content. When that happened, most re-rerolled characters on live, including me. ;)
    Note in my signature, Kuuleix was one of two characters I moved from Live to Test. Her "birth date" is November 10th, 2004 although Test Server didn't come to fruition until December and she has an "X" at the end of her name, because I made a "Kuulei" on Test and when she moved in the spring of 2005 from live, an "X" was added.

    To all the TLE players on Kaladim, I hope you are pleasantly surprised by the change in Heroes' Festival content available to you! I had not counted on TSO being available on the server, months ago, when I was working on this event, but because I knew it might be I had scripted the event to check for the expansion. It's there, and as a result... here you go:

    Enjoy Mischeva's Clothworks in Antonica, The Commonlands, Sinking Sands, and Kylong Plains!
    Enjoy Thumore's Absence, Shattered Remains, and A Dream Adventure!
    Enjoy the full event merchant list of house items, mounts, and equipment!

    There seems to be something wrong with the Heroe's Festival Outfits this year. Even the vendor doesn't know the prices, but he doesn't sell it for zero copper either.

    It probably might only be an issue to live servers.
  18. Sigrdrifa Well-Known Member

    The dragons were specifically a 15th anniversary of the game event. The patchworks are fun, because any level player can join the assembly and throw damage at them.

    anyone crashes doing the dream quests in qeyous ?

    It's not uncommon to crash if you zone a lot, which this quest requires. Try rebooting your computer, it may help some.
