The Quest Continues!

Finally Solved!


Over on the official boards, Tnexus tells the great story of solving an old PoP era quest. This is due to Tnexus dedication to solving this quest. One side effect was the recent patch updating 6000 items to be flagged as quest. Also evident is some developer appetite to see old quests solved/fixed.

Visit the thread and give Tnexus a grats!



After the jump is Tnexus' post telling the tale.



-user Fhrugby put significant effort into trying to solve this quest in the past, his/her name is all over the related items threads. If you know Fhrugby, pass along a pat on the back!

-the reward has never been run through our item collector as far as I can tell, nor the quest NPC entered into the database, nor the quest. I wonder how many more of these situations there is?

- Augmentations that only fit in 1H Piercing weapons now refer to 1H Piercing rather than "Piercing."

- The Beastlord ornamentation 'The Warder' has had its Lore flag removed.

- Corrected a problem that caused the Metamorph Totem: Murkglider to appear to be an ankylosaurus when previewed or placed in a house or yard.

- Beastlords - Corrected an issue with the focus effect Frozen Miasma Fury found on Anthemion Jerkin, Crypt-Hunter's Dragonbrood Tunic, and Deathseeker's Dragonbrood Tunic that caused it to focus a number of spells and abilities that it was not intended to.
