Broken quests

Postby Dalar » Wed May 29, 2002 12:55 am

could something be done about broken/incomplete quests? there are just some quests you don't want to go back. it's not like there's one quest that's broken, there are dozens of them.
I would suggest adding a board for every zone in game and an admin would post when a player has reached the point where the quest is incomplete/broken. this saves questers a shitload of time.

- A quest that's been hinted at for ages but has never been accessible is now
open and working. Enjoy!

the only thing i'm enjoying is the ambiguity.

I was thinking maybe monastary quest- but I didn't feel like wasting time doing the quest again to find out it's broken again.

I will not say what quest it was, but I will say this. Erlan is still offlimits.

For once, I am in agreement with Yayaril.. Well partly.

How the heck are players supposed to know what quest was fixed? Do it again, and get hosed on items when they find out it is broken again? Is there a list of players that tried it once, found out it failed? Will they get some info on when said quest is fixed?

If not, I think the process is wholly broken.

Read the news entry please. I will break it down, so its easily understandable. Image

A quest that's been hinted at for ages

In other words, the quest has been in the game for some time now.

but has never been accessible is now open and working.

It was not accessible before. The quest wasn't doable. It's not a quest that was broken. It dosen't say a broken quest was fixed.

Enjoy!

This means go out there and find it, and be happy that Cyric is on the job.

I hope you all can find the quest now. Image

Kick ass. The elder queen quest on EM. The missing earring pops now. hrmm

Kick ass. The farmer quest. The merchant with something sweet loads now. hrmm

Kick ass. Dravin now has the statue that the wildelves need. hrmm

Kick ass. Finn's ring is attainable now. hrmm

Maybe 'hinted at' isn't a good thing for elves to ponder.

All of Evermeet is broke, but I don't think we've heard any hints of it ever getting fixed.

Any of them would rule!

omg do you know how many quests have been in game for a while now and aren't doable? "Go out there and find it" is like finding a needle in a haystack. Monastery, GN, GC all have quests that are not doable. Also, by who or what hinted the quest? Do you realize how much god info is leaked these days?

When a god just says "ok a quest is now doable" you guys want people to run through each quest? What a waste of time. Why don't you guys just take out all the incomplete quests? You guys did that for the TOTALLY incomplete/broken/whatever series of quest mobs in the north.

Erm, Your first clue will be mobs you have never seen before. Take a moment to talk with them before attempting to kill them.

I obviously don't expect you to re-do every quest over again. Like I pointed out though, the quest was never accesible. It's not a quest the was accesible and just had one problem with it. This is not the reason I'm posting though.

Cyric is constantly busy, so i've been trying to help him alot. If you feel there is a quest in the game that is broken, please email me with whatever info you have on it, and why you think its broken. I promise to check into it within a resonable time (1-2 weeks).

Kelmevor,

Thanks for fixing the quest referred to in the news. Its a pretty cool quest and I'm glad its working now. Also, I am really glad that you have made yourself available to the players for their input on other quests that might be broken. If you follow through on this it will do much to restore the confidence of the players that the quests they are spending so much time trying to solve are working. So, to conclude, I suggest that people start spamming the hell out of Kelemvor Image

Hey Dalar, sandstorm is in the help files Image

SANDSTORM
Spell.

Area of effect: Room
Aggressive: Yes
Cumulative: No
Duration: Instantaneous
Class/Circle: Invoker 10th
Type of spell: Invocation

This highly powerful offensive spell summons a massive sandstorm into
existence around the caster's foes. In addition to the massive damage
caused by the powerful winds and hot sands, each victim must make two saving
throws each or be blinded, knocked to the ground, or both.
