So game just "crashed" on me, by this I mean it became unresponsive, and I couldn't quit it, so I CTRL-ALT-DEL out to try to close the game, I nearly succeeded, but my mouse was somehow disabled by exiting ddo and in frustration I just did a soft reset.
So that's why I have time to write this, because the group I was in has surely finished the quest by now, that I badly needed and at lvl 19 couldn't solo on E for bb.
Anyhow, ranting and raving off and to the point.
Before the crash id been soloing the quest mining for ancient secrets(on hard if it matters). Got to end, not too rough, character has good ranged damage so I range 1st control crystal, kill spawn up top, then head down to finish, kill rest, take out other crystal and nothing...
Didn't complete, not sure why, but one of the control crystals didn't register as destroyed, with the recent similar bugs lately not too surprised, im cooking food so I figure ill open a ticket and maybe get lucky and have it resolved while im cooking and save some time not running again after.
Admin replies maybe a minute later, fixes it, went well. He asks if theres anything else.
I say, "I ranged the crystal before engaging in endfight, I think that might be where the bug lies".
He replies something like "Its not a bug, you cant range the crystals b4 going in the room".
I reply something like "Um, but I did range the crystal b4 entering the room (not quite true, I had entered room, just hadn't come close enough to engage), so I assume its a bug when you can cause a quest to break just by using ranged attack?"
EDIT: Admin didn't reply to my last question, just did the standard close ticket text.
So the question is, is this really not considered a bug that a quest can me made incompletable by using a ranged weapon? Theres an odd trend in ddo where the players are blamed for problems in ddo, wether its just playing a quest in a normal way that renders it incompletable, for example this quest with ranged, snitch(tho ive not yet figured out what im doing to bug crateos), the login issues on computers that run everything else just fine(it may be related to system setup somehow, but who knows? and should that matter? seems very similar to the you should know better than to range a crystal attitude to me).
Im not a new player to say the least and im affected by this stuff, I cant imagine someone new to game wanting to deal with it.
