View Full Version : Cold iron crafting bug

I tried on Lamannia to receive a Red Augment Crystal of Fey/cold iron Vulnerability trading 20 epic dungeon tokens, but Misty gived me a Red Augment Crystal of Vampire/silver Vulnerability even if she said that gived me the right augment crystal of Fey vulnerability.
This bug is active near 6 monthes (probably more, but haven't tested before) on regular servers and traded a lot of epic dungeon tokens always without success so I tried on Lamannia hoping to see the bug solved.

I tried to change tokens for crystal of Vampire vulnerability considering Misty is a bit drunk and she changes 1 for the other, but I wasn't succesfull, seems that he ended those augment crystals.

Can we hope to have this bug solved soon?

Ty for the attention and nice work.

Sincerely, Claymore.

That bug's been in the game proper ever since I can remember.

It's been on the Wiki for a year or more.

And your point?

OP was aware of the bug, and tested on Lamma to see if it was one of the ninja-fixes they may have done.

Its not unreasonable to ask if this can get fixed in some fashion. To either make it give out the correct augment, or temporarily remove that selection from the list.

I would have thought that they had fixed it when they added all those new red crystals from devil's assault. Shame they didn't.

this is an automated pm, but does confirm its on their list of items to check and report back to dev(or more likely given the longevity of the bug it has already been passed to dev from another bug report).

It isn't fully automated because I have gotten responses that "thank you for submitting a bug report, we already know about this issue." Also, I submitted the bug about a month ago, which suggests that they are sifting through a list in the order that they come in.

But then all the epic ingredients will melt and we won't be able to buy augments :(

We'll replace her with a vending machine made by Haywire. Nothing could possibly go wrong.

Give her the same interface as the Mabar turn-ins and new Cauldron.

Set up a shop window for the stuff she charges money for.

She seems like the perfect candidate for an overhaul.

/signed.

IMO some of the augments could be looked into, power level wise, particularly the caster-oriented augments that most people forget exists - I see no reason why Wizardry 6 isn't able to be boosted to Archmagi, and Shroud-only +50 SP, 100SP and 10/15/20 HP made available (perhaps for 15 dungeon tokens, 30 raid tokens, 15 dungeon, 20 dungeon + 5 raid and 30 raid tokens respectively).

I agree.

Wizardry 6 on an Epic item seems kinda "meh" to me.

Like a waste of tokens.

Okay Haywire, gimme a cold-iron augment item.
Hmmm... says cold-iron.
Ooh... my epic chaos-blade has a clicky... let's try that out.
*MARUT APPEARS*
"oh um.... hey there".
YOU SHALL NOW DIE FOR HAVING EVADED AND SOULSTONED AND REZ CAKING THROUGH YOUR MANY LIVES. PREPARE FOR CHARACTER WIPE!

What? CR90 *Marut* with dev powers?
"Marut dude, you got the wrong guy. I'm a um... perma-deather... yeah... never died. You want that guy over there... I hear he puts rez shrines in raids!"

NO

Exit to Character Selection Screen with one less character to select.

that's because those weren't the droids you were looking for

I posted this back in May.

I eventually got QA to have a look, but they responded that they could not confirm there was a problem. Kind of funny.

Instructions were pretty simple.
1. Give chick hard-earned dungeon tokens.
2. Select Cold Iron. Double, then triple-check that your mouse is indeed over the cold iron crystal.
3. Receive item and read description confirming Silver and not Cold Iron.
4. Stomp feet and kick the dog.

I had hoped they would have at least added to the "Known Issues" list to avoid fleecing other unsuspecting customers. I guess certain bugs are trickier than they appear though, since we still have the problem.
