    Volume 2 Book 1 Chapter 11 - Bugged

    I have found many players (myself included) get stuck in this quest where you're meant to level your legendary weapon to level 10 before continuing. Thing is, even the weapon has reached that level, the NPCs aren't recognizing the fact.

    Apparently (though not completely confirmed) being in instance/skirmishes or using experience items may lead to the quest being bugged.
    Here are two screenshots showing it:

    http://i39.tinypic.com/1zx7f4k.jpg

    As a result, you've no access to the Legendary Weapon system, and neither Moria, which Quest Pack I recently bought at the store for a good amount of TP.
    So far this issue can only be solved with the assistance of a GM; however this assistance is only restricted to VIP or subscriber members. While I understand those members should get a preferred assistance, I also believe that this situation is a result of a bug in the system and, therefore, should be able to be addressed for any player, regardless of their status.

    I finally attach two links where other players have experienced the same issue with the same quest:

    Did you also talk to the forgemaster in Rivendell?

    In fact you are not meant to talk with Forge Masters (both Rivendell and Thorin's Hall ones are disabled until you gain access to Moria) but I tried the same thing with Dithalion (which is an NPC standing next to the forgemaster at Rivendell) and he also has the blue ring icon above his head, expecting me to level the weapon up to 10.

    Thanks for replying though, Jeroen3219.

    If you're in a raid, the quest won't advance (no quests or deeds will).

    In lieu of a GM, you can also level the weapon up to 20, while not in a raid, to proceed.

    Happened to me a couple months ago, /bug'd it then.

    "Leveling disabled" just means you don't have your starter LI equipped. That one, and only that one, has be be equipped to advance.

    Re: Volume 2 Book 1 Chapter 11 - Bugged

    The "levelling disabled" picture was merely to clarify that the item is indeed the one you're given at the quest chain.

    Apparently with other legendary items, they can still level even if not equipped as long as they're slotted in one of the legendary panels.
    I added that screenshot because in some of the threads I pointed out, there was said that you must use the weapon you're given at the chain quest, and that is exactly this case.

    The only forge master you can use when the volume 2 book 1 is not completed yet is the one at Eregion.
    However, if I try to reforge the Legendary Item there, I get the error "You cannot use Legendary Weapons until you have access to Moria" as can be seen here:

    http://tinypic.com/r/fdx255/5

    So I believe there is no way I can level it to 20.
    If there is any other way that you know of, Nakiami, I would welcome the assistance.

    So - both the forge masters in Thorin's Hall and Rivendell refuse you?

    I guess you have a different problem than I did. I was able to reforge, but the quest did not advance. You aren't even able to reforge.

    Yes, I cannot interact with any of those two.

    Found even more cases where this has happened before to other players:

    If the only way to workaround the issue is through a GM intervention, I believe even if you're a f2p player you should have access to this, particularly in situations where, same as I did, more than a thousand Turbine Points have been spent at the LOTRO store in order to get the Moria Quest Pack that, as of today, cannot even be accessed to, for its doors are meant to be opened during this questchain.

    Amongst all the interesting new features that Update 9 brought us, I was particularly excited about this one regarding Legendary Items:

    "Players will be unable to use Experience Runes on IA weapons until they have completed all quests in Volume II Book 1."

    With this one of the possible issues that ends up in being unable to enter Moria, should become fixed.

    Now that Update 9 is live, I went online with my stuck character Nadvett, who is told to level his Legendary up to level 10 and then go back and speack with Dithalion (Rivendell) or Wafi (Thorin's Hall) in order to proceed.

    Eventhough the Legendary Weapon is at level 10 and has some extra XP, the NPCs keep not recognizing the fact:
    http://i46.tinypic.com/2s1w2u1.jpg (Wafi shows blue ring above his head)
    http://i46.tinypic.com/2afa00k.jpg (NPC interaction showing he's still waiting for weapon to reach level 10)
    http://i49.tinypic.com/344fd7b.jpg (Character panel, where it can be seen Weapon is ready to reforge aka reached level 10 already)
    http://i50.tinypic.com/2pjs9.jpg (Legendary Item panel, where you can once again check on the item level)

    Not being allowed to complete this quest chain does not only forbid from using LI but also from progressing further in the game, as it doesn't allow you to enter Moria (and that also means you're banned from Rohan, Isengard, Lothlorien...)

    Any ideas on how to solve this situation?

    Update 9.1 is already here but the situation hasn't changed.

    At Thorin's Hall they're still expecting the weapon to reach level 10 when it already is there, and Dithalion at Rivendell too:
    http://i49.tinypic.com/55m45t.jpg

    It seems update 9 placed some patches to at least a known way to get stuck by this quest, by disabling the use of legendary XP items, but left out a tool to be used for those characters already stuck there due to the bug.

    I have seen how some other bugged quests, such as "Bill the pony" at Eriador, where fixed in update 9.1 and that implied those characters having it seeing it removed so they could pick it up again and complete it normally.

    Problem is that this particular quest ("Worth beyond measure") cannot be cancelled by users. It would be convenient to provide a workaround to those users who got stuck there, if only by means of cancelling the quest and having they start it anew. That's something I wouldn't mind at all doing.

    I've filed up a bug request pointing to this thread with hopes that some workaround can be put into the game so that characters who got stuck by this, can have a way to finally enter Moria and use the Legendary item system.

    Unfortunately the bug is still there with 12.1

    Even if the Legendary Weapon has reached by far level 10, the quest is still shown as not completed, thus the NPCs won't interact with you.
    The item cannot be reforged either:

    From your last shoot, I gather that you're 55 (not particularly relevant... but what have you been doing for the past 10 levels?) and that you've over-leveled the LI by using an Ixp rune. I suspect that's the cause of your malfunction.

    This issue has now been resolved with the assistance of a Game Master.

    How is it possible you have used an IXP rune on your starter legendary weapon?

    Ixp runes are bound to account. Utilizing a Shared Vault, it's possible to send a rune from one character to another.

    But it should not be possible to add the IXP runes to the starter legendary item.. not since an update in late 2012.

    I know this is an old thread but that post was only created a few days ago saying the bug still existed.

    I guess that, by that time, it was possible to use this runes. My first post is from April 2012.
    I cannot recall if it was runes the thing that made the whole thing bugged, or it was an instance (as this was also apparently another known way to reach level 10 but the quest not noticing) or another different thing.

    Ever since the thread was made, several updates came out that went on fixing/preventing sources of that issue (such as preventing runes from being used until you gained access to Moria, or the already mentioned raiding bug) but for every player who hit the bug, the situation wouldn't change, as the quest would not be re-evaluated (that is, checking again if the LI is level 10 or not)

    Needless to say, no shared vault was used throughout the process. I don't think I've ever used shared storage. And the other character in the server is of lower level and hasn't got any Legendary Item.

    What I meant to say with the bug is still there is precisely that: Those who were stuck for whichever reason in that quest, where still stuck no matter what since the quest wouldn't be re-evaluated. I do not know if all the ways of getting stuck there have been fixed by now (although I hope so, and apparently some work has been done in that direction) but you can rest assured I'll be extra-careful (and a bit scared to be honest) whenever one of my characters reaches that quest-chain again. You certainly do not want to become stuck there, not when it prevents you from enjoying all the rest of the game.
