    Default Black Loch End Chest?

    How come every time I go into The Black Loch on Normal, there are no chests a all in the gold room? There used to be a chest on Normal. Now every time, it's just the **** piles of gold.

    Loot
    Chests: Three minimum, six possible, seven on epic
    One (shaped like a clam) at the bottom of the water under the first shrine.
    One after killing the failed zombie experiments in the pen room.
    One per difficulty level (one for normal, two for hard, three for elite, four for epic) in the Vault
    14 piles of gold to click on here as well.
    One possible in the Vault if the rare Zombie Captain appears.
    The chest which appears after killing Dheren contains the Gold Key, required to unlock the Vault, and has a chance to drop a Sigil of the Lion.

    Yes? That's my question. There is supposed to be 1 chest in the Vault on Normal. There hasn't been a chest in there the last few times I've done the quest on Normal. Just the gold piles. Unless the chest is invisible now.

    Default Just a suggestion

    The next time this happens, take a screenie of the xp window showing it was normal and that there was no chest and bug report it. If you are in a group, see if everyone else will do this as well. The more reports the bug fix people get, the faster they will check on it, and possibly be able to get an answer to you or get it fixed.

    Well, after running it on EN last night a few times, I decided to look it up and see if others were having issues, and sure enough, here we are!

    All runs on EN last night, the vault room had TWO chests, of which neither contained any shards, seals, OR epic token fragments... The loot often contained stuff like Lvl 18-22 gear (despite having a huge jewel of fortune effect on (+2)) featuring such awesome epic stuff like 20 +3 Arrows... One group member ONLY got ammunition one time... in the EPIC chest mind you...

    We figured something HAD to be bugged or messed up...

    Unhappy

    Hasn't anyone told the people yet? Turbine pulled all support for the game! Both in and out of game. The people I run with found out a few weeks ago from +Magnolia+ that support for the game is no longer available! Now, unless that has changed recently, it still applies. Sorry!

    I reported it shortly after U14 came out and then again a few weeks ago. I posted in the general discussion forum once directly and once with a summary of all epic quests.

    The development team hasn't fixed it and hasn't even included it in the list of known bugs at this point. I am not sure why.

    There may be more than one bug. The bug I am talking about is that the epic chest never drops fragments and may not drop seals (they never dropped for me but that might be bad luck).

    Are we talking epic Normal or Heroic normal? I didnt have an issue on Heroic Normal.
    The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.

    Epic hard had 2 chests and an epic one in the end room.
    Epic normal had 1 chest and an epic one in the end room.

    So, the wiki is outdated, with the EN/H/E system sometimes the different difficulties have different attributes from the heroic N/H/E difficulties...such as no endfight on EN/EH small problem. This can sometimes be a big problem.

    In both instances, the epic chest did not drop fragments, and the loot seemed less than most chests give in epic quests.

    Also, the piles of gold were giving VERY poor loot...like "you gather 45gold pieces and 39 gold pieces and a potion of protection from evil".

    Either way, I liked the quest, had never done it before and while EH was not really a challenge, it was fun exploring a new area that I hadn't done before solo at a none-zerging pace for once. The zombie ambush was particularly fun. Energy bursting/dragon breathing 30 zombies at once was cool .

    But yea, the loot needs improving.

    The bug with the epic chest not dropping fragments occurs on any epic difficulty setting. In various posts people have confirmed the problem exists with all 4 difficulties.
