    Flagging for what? The next 2 quests are level 2, low XP quests that are easily skipped at that level. Unless you really are looking forward to getting your free agents favor for some reason. You can still run HIPS, so it doesn't block that chain.

    Seriously? I would hazard a guess at update 18 in 4-8 weeks.

    Thanks. That could work out. I usually only run about 20 quests a week.

    Apparently some passengers were not actually able to reach space on it. Has since been confirmed by a Disney employee that it was not WAI.
    Or something.

    Back on topic: Guess I'll have to try invis running Stealthy Repo on my TR instead. Or farm that one level 2 quest that takes like 2 minutes tops. Or run the CH quests this life. Or Tangleroot/Catacombs to make up for it. Or...
    You get the picture.

    Because the second quest of the chain will have only on one difficulty setting, which is EE and available to all levels.

    The reason for this is that any player should be able to solo some EE quests (you can blame marketing).
    And this will be a good preparation for other EE quests (some kind of newbie training).

    It's shut down to verify the issue, and while a fix is worked on.
    We're getting closer, now we just have to work on practicing putting all this information in the same post, okay guys?

    They should re-open the quest on Wayfinder, as a lag spike should be much easier to detect there. Coincidentally, that is also the server I want to run the quest on :-)

    Wow. Kobold Hate is apparently a new feature.

    Kobold hate entire GAME. Not forget you, the developers, and certainly not boxes.

    Thanks for catching this one and hope it's not a big inconvenience until the kobold vengeance is throttled down. Otherwise one of them is going to hijack our toons, exit into the real world, burn out our eyes, blow up all our cars and make us eat Tastee Wheat.

    Or am I confusing this with a movie?

    Wow, after more than 5 weeks and it is still unavailable.
    Is that a record for effectively 3 quests to be unavailable?

    In that time we have 3 lots of scheduled maintenance for the servers that were opportunities for it to be fixed.

    There has been no information on when then the quest will be fixed.

    Update 18 on Lamannia has the quest available but without release notes don't know if this was because it's been fixed or they just haven't bothered to make it unavailable.

    Would appreciate an update as I'd like to do these quests at level until then I'm off to Neverwinter.

    Technically it's 2 quests, part 2 and part 3.

    We still have bugs/breaks/ problems from when the game started from 2006 that have not been fixed or figured out how to fix. Seriously, 5 weeks is nothing.

    A 3-part level 2 quest chain is keeping you from enjoying the game, and, in fact, is making you leave the game? LOL adios.

    Well Update 18 is here and quest is still unavailable

    Be nice to have an update, maybe if I phrase the question the right way:

    When will my Bladeforged Paladin Iconic Hero from Shadowfell Conspiracy Collector's Edition be able to run the Baudry Cartamon quest chain?

    There that ought to get a Dev response.

    On the plus side I have got my Neverwinter character to level 20 and claimed my free horse mount.

    At what point do we start using quotes around the temporary part of the description?

    i.e.

    "Temporary" Quest Closure: Protect Baudry's Interests

    It sure would be nice if I could run those three quests on my soloist character. At this point I'm way beyond them. But given my soloist rule set, I'm going to have to do them once they become available, four times each (once per difficulty level). Which means there are 12 quests I have to do, back to back, where I will get zero xp. Not really looking forward to that (I usually like those quests, for a level 2 set anyway, but running them 4 times each over and over is just going to be a grind).

    And yeah, I could skip them. But I set up my rules as a soloist for a reason, and if I don't do the quests I won't feel like I've done what I set out to do. So yeah, I'm going to have to do them.

    Is somebody working on this? How hard is it to get a Kobold to target a box? I'm a programmer myself, and I know **** happens, and it's probably much harder than I think for Reason X or Reason Y, but it doesn't really seem like it ought to be all that difficult to get a Kobold AI to hate on a box without it messing up the server. So what is the holdup? Do you guys need me to come down there and fix it for you?
