    Default The Spinner of Shadows Quest is broken... Again... Even worse this time...

    So before the spinners of shadows quest was bugged because after lighting around 5-6 wards, the spinners of shadows wouldn't retreat anymore and she will just keep on healing herself while summoning more of her spiders which is the source of your crystals to light up the wards and to finish the quest. This was a very lengthy quest because of that bug and it's a non-stop fighting/surviving to get enough crystals for all the wards left.

    After doing the spinner of shadows in Lamannia twice, twice today, after lighting up 4 wards. The spinner of shadows would just be hanging on her web on top of the caves not doing anything, of course the crystal spiders wouldn't come out of their burrow because the spinner of shadows isn't hurt at all thus making the quest bugged and not allowing us to finish it. I tried recalling outside of the quest the second time I attempted the quest, once I got in the spinner's prison, she was in the same spot but standing on the ground, whenever I attack her, her magical shield appears and it's like she doesn't even feel a thing lol, like I'm not even there. So yeah, spinner of shadows quest? Looks like a quest the devs missed in transferring the old things back from dev land into lama land.

    No wonder there's a door to eveningstar as well xD lol jk

    EDIT: Both played on Heroic Elite for a casual run.

    Default The Spinner of Shadows can't take too much damage!

    Ok so my bud and I ran this a couple of times, the first time was when I tried him to test it on a different difficulty, heroic hard, we weren't up for epic difficulties cause our toons weren't geared properly and we just used the gear we can find in the test dojo. I joined him when he had around 5 more crystals needed to light up the remaining wards, we then finished and thinking it wasn't bugged anymore, we then decided to run it again on heroic elite to find out if the bug will still happen or not.

    Apparently, after lighting up 3-4 wards, the spinner of shadows showed herself again and decided to challenge us in a fight before she goes running away and go heals her wounds with her web. My bud was a fighter and I was a ranger with fury of the wild ED, furyshot, which was exactly what I did to her, we were then speculating that the probable reason for the bug the spinner of shadows was doing was because of me burst DPS hitting her causes a bit of a bug where in after she goes up and hides herself, she will never go down anymore. Probably too scared or something xD lol. But yeah anyway, ran it again on Heroic Normal, furyshotted her after she showed up again and once again, she never went down after going back up. Just posting this for steps on how to reproduce the bug! Already submitted a bug report as well.

    That's not how it works. They use version control already. This is a regression bug. Likely something changed in a script somewhere else that just happened to affect this quest.

    Don't light the wards until you have enough crystals to light them all.

    Default Saga's

    Imagine if a quest like this was borked while trying to farm saga's on live for your heart.... 1 quest shutdown can screw up 2-3 saga's. Nice eh?
