    New Guild Quests - Minas Morgul Expansion

    So, I'm hoping for a blue name answer but anyone who has more info is always welcome to pitch in!

    We've been having reports from people who are getting stuck on the 3rd Guild quest for Cooks since once you complete the objective you are asked to go turn in the quest to the NPC in the new area (Estolad Lan) and ofc, lower lvl alts can't do that unless they mithril.

    Personally, I haven't experienced this in other guilds quests.

    Is this intended? and if so, why?

    Intended, I would guess.

    Escalation. This is the first time we have to buy an expansion in order to do crafting quests. We might as well assume that spending MC to get to a high-lvl region is also part of the escalation towards "encouring" players to pay for convenience/functionality by introducing unprecedented and arbitrary gating mechanisms. I really wish the stakeholders would take the F2P model in a different direction

    I don't believe this is intended. We are definitely looking into it!

    Thank you very much for your quick reply, Kehleyr!

    I haven't experienced it with any other Guild. Let's hope for a quick fix too

    Interesting. My cook in Michel Delving actually had a whole bunch of T7-T9 repasts made in past weeks, that took me to 120k+ rep, so first 2 quests took me to 200k. Did not even try to do the 3rd...

    This happened to my Cook. Even though she is 120, she is not strong enough to easily get to that area.

    I was going to get someone to port her there, but then I searched my vault and found 125k worth of old repasts. I was able to get her to Honoured with the Guild without following that third quest. I thought this was working as intended, I guess it isn't.

    Just a side note. Those crafting quests only make it MUCH easier to advance in your Guild. You can advance without the Expansion quests.

    We will be correcting this in the next patch. However, the fix required the quest to be reset for those who have the quest underway. Players who have completed the quest are not impacted.

    It was like this in the final beta, once we had the recipe to advance it. And I put it in the feedback thread... Maybe the dev has me on ignore.

    Also as I remember all the quest advance as you craft the hand ins, so when you crit a few the extras do not advance it. Meaning those who have it reset will have to make them again despite having enough in their packs already, so have the mats ready.

    Or dump some MC now, hand in take the next quest and port out proto, further hand ins are all back in MD guild hall.
