    Default Is Delera's more broken than usual?

    I have run into 2 issues already with 1 run - more than a long, long time.

    The arcane skeletons didn't appear so the door didn't open on Delera's 1 ( lodged a ticket but then decided to reset as I didn't want to wait for the GM's) and now on Delera's 3, I am waiting for a GM as when I opened the 3rd soul lock, and killed everything the gates didn't open to allow me to proceed.

    Anyone else having these kinds of issues?

    What is sort of getting my goat is that if you have store bought buffs on, you lose out waiting for the GM's.

    sounds like the first one is just a spawn bug. that can happen in any quest and experienced similar problems like that. usually its faster and easier to reset the instance than wait for a GM.

    the second one sounds like you might not have killed the optional wraith which is actually required to open the doors. ive had issues in the past once in awhile that the wraith will disappear through the bars on the doors or something trying to get to me before I get to the actual soul lock area. took 5 minutes once for the wraith to finally decide to come back and fight me.

    How is Delera's usually broken?

    Because I've NEVER had a problem in there and I've run that chain hundreds of times.

    Edit: I'm not saying the OP is not seeing the problems he describes by the way - I was just confused by the title, since I've never considered Deleras normally "broken" during all these years.

    Pt2 door not opening instantly after you kill mobs, thats because 1 skeleton doesnt spawn always.

    Nope, if you kill the skellie archers first, it will open every time as soon as the last ghostly skellies goes down, if you do it the wrong way you need to wait on a timer, been this way forever

    Go and do it like that, count the mobs when it opens instantly and count when it doesnt, I did it and 1 skele doesnt spawn always.

    Thanks! I agree with the first one. And a reset is so much faster than waiting!

    For the second one I think that is what happened. The Wraith never generated and the GM had to complete the mission. I am glad that the GM's have the power to revoke some of the store bought buffs if the situation is warranted.

    I sort of agree cause to be honest, I never had issues with it until recently!

    But part of it is playing style. I can see if you do things in a certain order and maybe faster than usual, it could screw things up!

    It also opens right away if you clear the entire room in one shot, like with a strong Turn Undead.
    Now excuse me while I wander off to arm myself with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and hunker down behind my Armored Beer Refrigerator, while I have the UFO's take control of the Congresional Wives with the help of the International Cocaine Smugglers and the Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow
