I'd like to just post a guide on some bugs I've encountered during the game so far. I would invite anyone else to post up their experiences and bugs here too or dicuss anything related to bugs. This is just a start. I"ll be posting them here and updating a little every few days. If you know any temporary fixes or solution to some of please post them.
Healing does not work for some people. This is firsthand experience. Ive had someone in the group try to heal me and I would see the numbers in green pop up when I'm healed but my health would not go up. This happend to me in 3 different groups all with different people.
Group chat doesn't always work. I've had times where I could not speak in groupchat but could hear all the other members speaking on it jsut fine, and read thier messages.
Group looting has an issue where an item that is supposed to get rolled on doesn't for some reason or you can't pick up a looted item from a corpse sometimes. Sometimes this causes the entire group not being able to loot any corpses until everyone relogs. It seems this is also caused when someone closes the window that pops up when you roll for loot. Also related is a loot bug where it says "you are already looting a corpse" when you aren't. /endloot somtimes temporality fixes this.
Sometimes you aren't able to see other party members on your screen. You have to relog sometimes and that will fix the issue temporarily. Relogging during a middle of a dungeon crawl with things spawning and patrols running around is not a good thing. You also run into the issue of relogging and disrupt the group with the loot bug. Sometimes this resulted in wipes because something spawned or we didnt all relog on at exactly the same moment.
For some work orders and other recipies I have not recived any craft xp from them as an artificer. The work orders I've done vary from easy to difficult and all grades. I should be getting xp from moderate to difficult work orders as well as when I complete the individual items. This is not always happening even with quality grades above D.
There are too many complications that pop up. Trying to get something grade A for a very easy work order is almost impossible sometimes. I might get a grade "A" 2 out of 10 times for a very easy order. Also I've noticed that even at moderate to easy work orders its very rare to recieve anything over a "poor" or "fair" craft result. (I do have proper crafting attire for my craft level)
There are numerous bugged quests. Numerous is an understatement. I'll try to list them as I remember them or encounter them.
"The Cure" when you exit the portal after drenching hte spider queen with the liquid Lalen gave you, you can't finish the quest. A green check mark and shield will pop up over a guard that spawns when you exit the portal next to Lalen who also spawns. No dialogue came up for me when I tried to talk to the guard and cound not finish the quest and the guard despawns after some time. I then abandoned the quest to try to restart it and Lalen would not give me the quest again.
"Off to see the Wizard"
When you go the tower to deliver the mail to (i think his name is) Varlon Majar? he is not at the tower where he is supposed to be but sianding on a rock nearby. When you try to talk to him no dialogue comes up and you cannot finish the quest.
"Goz-something or another"
There is a giant turtle in meadow lake named Goz-something that you must slay. You put spider bait out for him in the center of some stones and he comes out. I slew him and was unable to loot his corpse as it laid on the bottom of the lake and could not get his head to finish the quest. The corpse was "too far away" from me yet I was right next to it.
One of the diplomacy trainers in Leth Nurae near the horse vendor has 3 quests to teach you about advanced diplomacy skills. I completed all of the quests but he still has a yellow icon over his head and I can do the quests over and over and over like I never finished them.
My charater's appearance changes everytime I log into the game. I spent a good amount of time customiztion the character to how I wanted it to look and now its changed. I didn't save any templates and I do not remember where the all the slider positions were so I can only approximate my original look. I want my pretty face back.
I am constantly missing items from my inventory, in particular most of the time its my helmet or crafting chest piece. I have also had missing dusts andother armor pieces. But when I do /inventory some of my missing items are listed there.
I constantly am not listed as in a guild when I am. I do not see my guild member list when i go to the community tab. I see "you are not in a guild" half of the time when I log in. My friends list is also dissapeared half of the time.
About half the time I do not see regional chat or guild chat. Regional chat says its an invalid channel when I try to use it and guildchat tells me I am not in a guild.
Crossing chunks often causes me to crash to desktop. I also lose torchlight when crossing chunks and it always switches me to first person view when I cross chunks. It also freezes me and "loads" when I cross chunks, what I call mini zoning. I have well far above and beyond the recommended specs for this game. I thought this was supposed to be a seamless world?
Petitons (lack of response)
Out of five or six petitions about issues that haven't been already broadcasted I have sent in the game, I have only gotten response from ONE. This is very poor customer service and shouldn't happen. Why are my petitons being deleted or removed? These were viable petitions that were not /bug related.
I constantly crash in this game at least once every 1-2 hours. Sometimes they are more frequent. I have over the recommended specs for this game.
Sometimes when a dialgue box comes up it comes up so dark I cannot see any text. Also some of the arrows, buttons, and plus icons will dissapear when the work order box comes up or when the crafting setup box comes up.
