    If those kobolds don't know how to hit the box
    (AI heats the cpu's when thinking about that)

    maybe try to replace it with a statue (stoned Baudry himself or his wife/kid/cat/dog/octopus), npc to protect (I knew there was a small titan inside that box!) or pile of gems (kobolds know how to pick them)

    OK, on Lamannia Update 18 patch 2 has arrived and is the quest fixed?

    Well there are at least release notes this time but they only list fixes of special note which doesn't include Protect Baudry’s Interests.

    Given how long the quest has been unavailable I'd have thought having it fixed would be worth a special note.

    But checking the known issues doesn't include Protect Baudry’s Interests anymore which is a good sign.

    As was the case with Update 18 on Lamannia the quest is open and doesn't appear to have changed at all.

    Would be good to know if the quest will be fixed in this patch but to me it's not certain yet.

    OK, so what I have gathered from various places on the Forum.

    The next update will be 19 for ShadowFell Conspiracy which is currently scheduled for Aug 19th.

    The Release notes on Lamannia at the moment has Baudry Cartamon's Interests fixed.

    This also gives a reason for why it is taking so long, the quest isn't just being fixed it has been re-designed along with the entire harbour.

    Well, I am now regretting my original decision when the quest was first closed to just wait for the next update. I thought quests are normally fixed straight away, I can wait a week or two the most it would surely take.
    But once you've waited a month an extra week or two isn't much more and before you know it more than two months has passed.

    Now that the wait looks to be for a further 48 days I now know to move on.

    What would have been great is that given that it must have been known for quite a while by the devs that the quest was being re-designed that we were told there was going to be no quick fix but actually take 4 months and one week (129 days) before we could run the quest again.

    they explained it was a lag issue, and they are working on it.

    I believe that this will probably be reopened about the time the implement the stealth update, it seems that the two are intertwined. So it is being quietly tested on lamannia.


    Ya know, I thought I was the only one that actually ran those quests, everyone I know always complained that they were time consuming, and didn't give much rewards...

    Default Baudry's time consuming?

    Wow?!?! Your acquaintances are nuts. The first part is on timer, the second part is a fast run through busting boxes. The final part was the same, but stopping to swing or cast and collect loot. I did only run it once though, never twice.

    I agree with them on being bad loot. All the harbor is now bad loot. Before I could get something interesting(ioun stone, Bottle of Air, Mark of XYZ) but my latest efforts on Sarlona have yielded absolutely zero things of interest in the harbor for the characters I have ran through there. The lone Pale Lavender Ioun Stone I picked up was in the DEPTHs chain.

    Harbor is being reworked because many of the new players quit after playing the harbor. For some reason, Turbine thinks the problem is the quests are the problem and not just because the new players decided the game wasn't for them based on many other issues besides the quests.

    During my time, this will be the second re-write of the harbor. Something different I guess.

    if Turbine thinks the problem with new players is the Harbor quests for why they are quitting, than they really are out of touch with the player base.

    Update: We have completed work to clear up the performance issues in Protect Baudry's Interests, and the quest will reopen with the launch of the Expansion (Update 19). Thanks for your patience!

    We made good progress with this as well (turns out it wasn't the quest but things going *into* the quest). Now that we know what to scrub for, we'll have some fixes going in to address it too.

    Any chance of details so that people can avoid them? I haven't had an issue but if some of the things that might bug it are released and people can avoid them, it'd cut down on some of the rage since they could work around it.

    Well, to be fair, when I first started playing (about 1.5 years ago), I had two main issues with the game. One was finding quests; that was pretty confusing as a brand new player. It required a lot of exploration and learning (which is fine, really; just time consuming). Sometimes it was very hard to find quests that were my level (and not too high or low).

    Second--and this is mitigated a lot by the fact that I have a duo partner available 100% of the time--the grouping system was very hard to use.

    Beyond those two issues, as a newer player, I didn't personally have any problems with the game.

    Things like enhancements, or spell crits, or high level content, etc; none of that in any way made any sense to me as a brand new player.

    Must have been those mushrooms again... I've told you guys time and time again: eating mushrooms inside a quest is bad, bad, bad! Take them out of your pockets, leave them in the bank and eat them when you're celebrating in the tavern!

    Temporary, my butt!!! From mid-April to late-July is definitely NOT temporary! I just made a new character and I have no idea when I'll be able to do this quest which is a huge deal for low levels! Thank you Turbine for letting me down more than ever before

    I believe it will get fixed with the next major update, but yeah, kinda sucks. I have eight characters I can't level because they're scheduled to run this quest next, and it up will be up to twelve in a few days.

    a big deal for low levels?

    3 mediocre quests with **** XP and a bit of favor?

    It's an annoyance, but easily overlooked. Bypass it. If you want the favor, by all means, come back for it when it opens.

    All that is wrong with DDO, life, taxes, poltics, religion, music, fast food, education, the criminal justice system, the weather, society, the universe, and previously-discontinued-but-now-on-their-way-back snack cakes, is all the fault of Wizards of the Coast.
