    Default Temporary Quest Closure: Protect Baudry’s Interests

    The quest "Protect Baudry’s Interests" is temporarily unavailable. The quest will reopen with the Expansion update (Update 19). We apologize for the inconvenience.

    I was about to TR, and now won't be able to run the entire chain...

    Any reason for this?

    This is disappointing, P.B.I. starts an important chain for low level characters. Hopefully it will not be down that long. Might I ask why its been closed? I ran it on elite 4 times in the last week and it didn't evince any bugs that I could tell.

    Clearly a beneficial bug was uncovered.

    I think it was my fault. I was dual-boxing, entered on elite, and realized my toons were no longer grouped.

    I quit both sessions because my wife & child were screaming for attention.

    Hmmm, this bug sounds VERY familiar, because on Lamannia, groups cannot be maintained; they break away if you enter a quest.
    Here's a riddle for you: What do you call people who play the game for only a day and apparently know everything?

    I ran this a week ago too. No problems.

    No, seriously, of all quests to be closed, why this one?

    When this was announced, it didn't affect me. No characters in that range.

    Tonight, I took advantage of the character slot sale, and I made a new monk (never tried monk before).

    The good news? Monks rock. The bad? I CAN'T RUN THE FREAKING BAUDRY CHAIN.

    Can we please get a reason (however roundabout) and/or a time estimate on this?

    Is this some kind of private joke I'm not getting?

    Someone please explain.

    Question This is what you're complaining about?

    Hang on. People are complaining that the Baudry chain is unavailable?! An obnoxiously easy sit-around-and-pike defense quest, a bloody stupid smash crates quest, and ONE normal hack-n-slash quest?!

    I almost always skip the chain anyway, as the first two annoy me.

    *I* like to run it.

    It's a bit annoying, but I always run it anyways. Small Eberron dragonshards drop for me quite often in the third quest, and those sell for a bundle on the AH.

    It also helps when I discovered there is a chest in each of the first two quests, and that the optional orange-names in the third quest have twice the chance of spawning if you enter the rooms from both entrances in turn.

    I doubt this will impact their decisions now, or in the future.

    The main problem is that this is a flagging quest.

    If they implemented some way to do the second two without needing the first while they closed it, that would be fine.

    An ETA would be nice. I run quests in a very specific pattern as I simultaneously level 32 characters in a soloing competition. In about 160 quests from now, this one will be next, and I'm basically stuck if it's not available.

    Sorry guys, I think this is my fault.

    I'm running a brand new soloist experiment. On the 11th, I decided I'd had enough for the day, so I parked my character outside of this quest in anticipation that I would get to it the next time I logged in.*

    Upon logging in the next evening, I find this quest has been closed. To paraphrase Murphy's Law, any quest that I'm getting ready to do will be closed just prior to me doing it. So yeah, this was totally my bad. Sorry 'bout that

    [*I mean this quite literally, I was actually was parked right outside the quest door, it was to be the first thing I did the next time I logged in].
    The locus of my identity is totally exterior to me.
