    DN Quest: The Heart of the Scourge - ?

    Has anybody completed this by finding a place to use the [item]Phial of Elven-light[/item]?

    Logically would seem to be in the Mistress's room, but we couldn't find a way to advance the quest after taking her down tonight.

    Re: DN Quest: The Heart of the Scourge - ?

    i strongly believe this quest is bugged.

    yesterday, we had someone with totally clear locks spend like half an hour looking through every nook and cranny of the place with no success. but since the dungeon was already fully cleared, we we thought maybe you had to be in the room with the mistress still active, then beat her while having this quest item in your log, and then something would appear to click on. we were planning on doing that on thurs night once the locks reset, but apparently you guys have done just that and it still doesn't work.

    so i'd be willing to wager heavily that this quest is simply bugged and isn't currently completeable....

    Re: DN Quest: The Heart of the Scourge - ?

    I can add that I searched the entire joint on Saturday during a complete instance-clear and found nowhere to use the phial. Common sense dictates it should be in the Mistress' lair.... turned that place upside down to no avail....

    Re: DN Quest: The Heart of the Scourge - ?

    I tried using it before we started the Mistress fight, and after. I highly doubt that you are supposed to use it *during* the fight, but I suppose it's possible.

    Usually for quests like these you get billboard text like "You have found the center of the plague in Dar Narbugud" when you are able to use the quest item. Nothing like that ever popped up either.

    With our combined knowledge, it's almost certainly a bugged quest. That's a shame - I was hoping it would give a special hidden title or something!

    Yup. A kinny and I spent the better part of 30 minutes scouring DN with instance-clear locks to no avail. I believe it's bugged as well.

    Re: DN Quest: The Heart of the Scourge - ?

    Can anyone _confirm_ that it is not possible to use it during the mistress fight?

    That's our current theory, only thing left that we could come up with (and what we'll try next time we run DN). Of course, it very well may be that the alternative (it's bugged) proves true.

    Re: DN Quest: The Heart of the Scourge - ?

    I completed the quest the first time I went in there. We would get a message that "this seems like a good place to clear the scourge" or something, in the side rooms with green floors on bosses 2-4.

    I believe you're confusing a previous quest. The one you're speaking of requires you to bring a different phial (or something) to each of the rooms filled with slime.

    The Heart of the Scourge is a different quest.

    Our kin has completed it prior to the Blind One's portal. There is one pool that you need to check the outside edge of the room to find it. They are all there, though.

    Re: DN Quest: The Heart of the Scourge - ?

    kk as Goog mentioned, we're mixing up 2 different quests.

    The quest given by the guy outside the door of the instance (don't recall the title, no longer have the quest) requires that a cleansing phial be used in marshy areas near bosses 2, 3, and 4. That one is working fine.

    The quest given by Celeborn in CG (and named exactly as this thread is entitled) requires that a cleansing phial be used "where the pestilence is at its greatest" or words to that effect. It seems to hint strongly that you would use the phial at or near the Mistress or her chamber. This one appears _not_ to be working.

    Unless...understanding the difference between the quests, one of you are still saying you did the latter?

    Still talking about the 3-location quest...this thread is (was originally) about the _other_ quest. lol don't know how to clear this up for the people who have only ever seen the one quest and think that's it.

    Re: DN Quest: The Heart of the Scourge - ?

    I'm standing in from of Celeborn in CG now... he doesn't have a quest icon. Is there a prerequiste somewhere?

    1) Complete the quest from Haldir to clear the evil from the Hall of Mirrors and Nala-Dum. (Basically, beat both instance bosses).

    2) Return to Haldir. Get a quest to talk to a guy outside of the Crafting Halls (Hall of Crafting, whatever ).

    3) Clear Crafting Halls. Talk to guy outside this place again.

    4) Return to Haldir.

    5) Get quest to talk to Celeborn - talk to Celeborn.

    6) Now you're caught up.

    In other words, don't just dash straight into DN.

    Yes, if I recall correctly

    Halidr gives you a quest to speak to a dwarf in the Crossroads. That dwarf gives you a quest to "reclaim" the 3 man instances, which involved looting a chest with a piece of paper in it. After that you go back to Haldir, and I believe you are either give a quest to clear the 6man or you are sent to Celeborn to get that quest. Once the HoC is "reclaimed" you get this quest.

    Re: DN Quest: The Heart of the Scourge - ?

    as noted above, these three people are referring to the wrong quest:

    this thread is referring to a different purification quest, bestowed by Celeborn at the end of a long chain, which no one has completed and which is almost certainly bugged at the moment.....

    (p.s. hope all of us posting in this thread have also submitted /bug reports )

    No you didn't, that is a different quest.

    No luck here either, even after clears.

    Re: DN Quest: The Heart of the Scourge - ?

    kk I keep forgetting to try to use the phial during the fight with the Mistress (lot going on, heehee), but I'm determined to remember to try on our kin's run tomorrow night.

    I submitted a ticket just to see if I'd get back the "known issue" response, but I didn't...instead, I got the 'In-Game Support team cannot provide hints or solutions' response, which means one of two things: (1) the GM who responded is not aware that the quest is bugged, and took the easy way out by shooting me a canned quest response, or (2) the quest is _not_ bugged and _can_ be done! I'm hoping for the latter, will find out tomorrow night if using it during the fight is the solution!

    Hey Llendra, several of us tried doing it during the fight on our last Mistress kill. It didn't work then either. We even tried clicking it in several different spots with no luck. Hopefully this gets fixed.
    Now behold the power of OverPoweredCC!

    Awww...thanks. And shoot, that means it's definitely a bug. I hope they are aware of it and maybe even have it on a list of things to fix with an upcoming patch! The worst kinds of broken quests are the ones that take up bag space while you wait for them to be doable again. heehee

    Re: DN Quest: The Heart of the Scourge - ?

    Bump!

    Hoping to get a dev to respond to this thread, as we've still no way of knowing for _sure_ that the quest is indeed bugged.

    p.s. we have submitted both tickets and bug reports. GMs say they can't determine whether it's a bug ('not our department, submit a bug report') and of course you never get a confirming response to any bug report. Help, devs!
