    I soloed through the quest on hNormal with an above level gold seal hire, the L17 owlbear and the L20 panther (to avoid breaking my elite bravery streak) and had no problems whatsoever. Parked the hires at the silver flame while I went spider hunting and ended up using about half a dozen wards from their kills to light the torches. Most of the spinner fighting took place at or near the silver flame.

    Cordovan might be right that it is a speed of damage issue. But, it might not be awesome damage. Since I relied on the hires to do most of the spinner damage my DPS rate was especially low.

    OTOH, as with all things Turbine, I suspect that they have no real idea why it broke -- only that saying something will quell the greater part of the masses.

Even though most items are probably not worth making epic, some are imo. If not just for the accomplishment or self gratification lol. Anyways shards are unattainable for this chain, until it is fixed. This carried over from preview after being reported numerous times. Not sure if it is bugged on heroic, as i have yet to test it.

    Had it bugged 3 times with no owlbears in sight.

    We bugged out using that method.

    We completed it on heroic casual with a normal hireling. We were simply trying the method of not hurting her too much too quickly... and keeping her out of the silver flame. It worked for us.

    Don't know if it works on epic, but I was able to complete today after someone suggested we not light any of the wards until we had enough to light them all.

We've had Spinner glitch on us twice (on hard) both times with the owlbears out. And yesterday I was running favour quests in Korthos and pulled out my owlbear, and twice quests wouldn't complete when everything was done (the Warehouse secret, did everything but it didn't mark off when I opened the door with the key, and.. what's it called, the tomb one... everything was checked off on the list, last altar destroyed, treasure chest open.. and it wouldn't complete.)

    The only thing that I had the same is that each time I had the owlbear out. It worked fine other times I had the owlbear out, but every quest I've had bug out since the update were ones I was using the owlbear in.

    I hope that helps find the bug. ^_^

    No had a owlbear. Its about how fast she gets damaged.

    Had it bug for us several times yesterday, despite taking it slow.

    GM responded after some wait and was helpful in completing it for us so our guildmate could get to Eveningstar.

    Still bugged (especially during a +2 Loot weekend!!!!)

    Not convinced that it's a damage issue. Duo'd it on Epic Hard with my wife (full monk) and my gimp/flavor 18Cleric/2Arty. I don't know that you can get much slower damage-wise than a gimpy/flavor build. I sent my wife on the collection portion while I stayed near the flame and tanked her. She tripped out after a few pew-pews of my repeater.

    Shame that it won't get fixed before the +2 loot runs out (or that they'll bring back +loot when it is fixed in a month or so)

    Hmm, its not the owlbear then. It sounded like a good potential theory but I can write that one off then.

    I'll try the different attacking method on Spinner and hope that works next time, I still have a few characters I'm trying to get through to FR for the new quests. There are still other quests bugging too... in a different way though of objectives not being checked off/counted when done, or completion just not happening.

    Bugged on me with my Iconic BF Paladin. 16th level. No hireling besides a cleric on defensive. She was running around with a web up to the ceiling bouncing up and down until I killed all the spiders and then she just stayed up. Had to recall out. I'll try again when I feel like wasting time and energy.No way it is from 'killing her too quick'.

    Twice and I didn't even waste money on an owlbear.

    Had it bug out after 4 torches, put in a ticket and got a response from a GM in less than 5 minutes and he completed it for me. Was probably the quickest run of spinner I have done.

    My group tried every trick in this thread. The Spinner bugged out every time. We lost an entire evening in this stupid quest... My decision NOT to buy the new pack was right
    Good work Turbine!

    Edit: we even called a GM. No one showed up after 1 hour of waiting.

    Completed successfully, using suggestion posted uptopic. Basically had a level 18 Bladeforged so no key and no way to get to Eveningstar unless Spinner was completed. Failed two attempts with full group on elite. Soloed on heroic casual just for flag, using parked panther to avoid breaking bravery. Didn't hit the Spinner of Shadows at all, and only used DOT from flame guardian in center to progress the quest.

    Forget the loot and xp if you need to get to Eveningstar and take the casual way out there.

    We tried that way, unsuccessfully. We used only the DOT from the flame guardian to damage it. After a while the spinner started running around like an headless chicken and no more spider or demons spawned. We gathered 30 ward crystals and no more.

    Do not let her take more than 4 stacks of holy flame, aim for just 1 stack tho, 100% success using this method so far, ~10 run, one even on EE

    helped complete for 3 in our party that wanted to get to eveningstar, played quest trying to damager only enough to progress quest almost only silver flame damaging her. She bugged out about half way and we all put in GM tickets. Was completed by GM a few minutes later.

    People who are waiting hours.... Did you accidentally bug report instead of ticket it? someone in our party bug reported it instead of sending a ticket. This is my second pleasant and reasonable GM interaction over a known quest bug. took maybe 10 minutes?
