Awakening Event Series - Maehwa and Musa

81 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

The Maehwa quest was not wrong. I have a maehwa myself. The quest told you to go to Emma Bartali, at this point you just had to talk to her ONE (1) time and press the dialogue box after "R". That's when she pins the place on your map. IF you pressed the navigation button on the quest, it will just point back to Emma because that's where you need to go for Emma to show you the pinpointed location (location of Hawol). I was the first musa/maehwa to talk to Emma in Balenos j1 and my quest worked properly, but I noticed the above. That is not a problem with the quest, it's just how the quest is supposed to work. IF you navigate for it, it will sent you to emma to talk to her so she can pinpoint the location (as I said above). You could always press T to navigate to the location and not the quest auto-nav, the flare was there.

PS: Not the first to finish the quest though :P

so many people didn't look at this post and went to the wrong place though.....which means many people who couldn't know about the issue lost their chance at the title, do something about it , please.

I did the maehwa quest and everything showed up properly. I have no idea what NPC you are all talking about...

Velia > Bartali Farm > That small island south of Tarif > talk to blue ghosts and the guy next to them on the stone > kill things at Marin Lab, kill 3 Wassteland Golems, kill 100 chamber relict thingys on that one part south of tarif on the other side of the river > back to blue ghosts and this old man > then that guy near abun > use a few combos, kill 10 skeletons at the soldiers grave and go back to the abun place. boom. Quest done. For maehwa that is.
All these places have been shown properly and even had a autopath going for them.

Am I missing something?

That small island south of Tarif

The Hawol NPC on that island is what people couldn't find. The ping when you clicked on Emma's option to tell about the nightmare from last night didn't point there for many, so lots of people didn't find Hawol.

I just "googled" him on bddatabase.net and it showed he was there, so I didn't lose time over that... for me it was having to go afk for 15 minutes due to an RL situation that may have cost me the title... if so, I don't care ;)

People mashed "R" through quests, obviously, to get it done asap

They failed to notice the dialogue that needed clicking from Emma, so it's "omfg broken quest wtfqqlmao", as Acanthophis pointed out

I did mine at a normal pace and had zero issues. People were just, understandably, rushing

I do feel sorry for those that had the "quest data" bug, and had to change channel to fix it (which wasn't obvious). They got shafted :(

Yes, you are missing something.
Velia > Bartali Farm > IMPS CAVE  ( cause no one in hell knows why ) > imps cave.....imps cave....where the hell is the npc ? 
Ofc the npc was on the island near the rogue's den but the point is that the translation kept being incorrect for a lot of time and for a lot of players, no one
knows what happened...but you just saw tons of plums going to the imps cave and being like " so...what now ?"  .
All these people lost their chance to get the title cause of some bugged quest...and it's not nice...at all...I myself spent about 20 minutes looking at the forums / databse / game before someone felt kind enough to post the correct position ; people who played KR version or other version knew about the quest's locations, others didn't...guess who got the title ? 
The rest of the quest was easy and quick but that part kept people blocked for a ton of time.

my ass....Emma pointed to the imps cave instead of directing you towards the rogues den. 
People didn't smash R ; the translation did not display correctly for some of us...and missing our chance at the title cause of this was pure bs.
That said....if you feel like acting like a smartass when you are not, feel free to do so....but gather data first.

The Maehwa quest was not wrong. I have a maehwa myself. The quest told you to go to Emma Bartali, at this point you just had to talk to her ONE (1) time and press the dialogue box after "R".

PS: Not the first to finish the quest though :P

Again.
We did accept her quest, we did ask her about her nightmare as the quest told us to....she mentioned the "imps cave" which in my world is not the "rogue's den"....infact....it's about 4000 m away from it...
Somehow the quest bugged for some of us and we missed our chances at the title cause of it ; none of us clicked on navigate again .
Imo...that's just bullshit.
The translation was wrong, it kept being for a while, anyone who got the bugged quest either played KR and knew what they were doing anyway...or they simply missed the title...don't be simplicistic and think "people spam R too fast, lel" because that's not how it works.



P.S.   Not to talk about the fact that there were tons of threads talking about the quest being bugged....and infact if you are patient and smart enough to read what's written at the end of the GM's post....
 you'll discover that there were people who were "having problems finding the quest NPC" and look ! There's even a link with the correct location ! What happens ? Other classes did not have a post such as this one addressing them to the correct location of some quest npc.....then it probably means they were all able to find it by normally following their quest...you know what it means ? Yes...Emma Bartali did actually point players to the wrong location : the imps cave.
Also...why would there be so many threads reporting the issue if it actually was not an issue ? Use your logics.

seems like i'm one of the few nifty ones that watched a korean stream to know what to do in order to get through the quest as fast as possible, my hope of getting the title is rising xD

 In all fairness, then they have the memory of goldfish, because otherwise they would fail the Maehwa questline earlier at Igor Bartali.. the very first quest needs you to ask that NPC too about something - which doesn't have the R shortcut and thus requires a bare minimum of thinking ;)

Honestly i think those who really wanted to race for the title already looked up the quest in the database with every step to do and with every quest npc location. I myself logged in right at the moment when the server came back online and the quest went fine.

The quest itself was not buggy at all, only people, as usual, were to fast on smashing R key, activating another quest that brought them somewhere else. Then complaining the quest is buggy lol.

i feel bad for the people that had their quests messed up.    i had no  issues at all emma pointed me directly to  Hawol  at rogues den. same with my guildies that did their quest .

 

personally the title should be awarded to everyone that  finished the awakening especially in this situation  with some ppl's quest being bugged its not fair.  

But event's like this is also not fair 100 people isn't enough , and the ppl that work unless its their day off they  don't even have a chance at getting the title.   Destroyer of dreams should be awarded to everyone that finished the awakening.

I am a Musa and I looked up the quest on various sites and found a database link that had every single step, I checked all of them to make sure I wouldn't be mislead or encounter a confusing step so I could get my title. Now my question is, we know who won those titles on 30th November?

 

PS: I still think it's -----ed up for maewhas to miss their quest due to a bad translated quest tho.

And here we go again, this distasteful event series continues with another episode of awarding those players who can log in during the middle of a workday. So many (easy) ways to give everyone playing at class-awakening launch day an equal chance to go for the title: Award it to everyone completing the quest before daily reset or just greatly increase the max numbers of titles. This is an MMO and as such any exclusive titles will become more and more rare in time anyway.

That said, might as well rename the title to "Leecher of Welfare" to properly represent which kind of players are able to participate in it. Is this kind of content supposed to aim at your target audience? If so, I'm really curious as to how you plan to keep the servers running based on welfare checks. As I've initially said, distasteful, nothing more.

You're a very close-minded individual, aren't you? I know many people on this server who are in completely different time zones, for one. For another, what's to say that these players aren't off on Wednesday after working their shifts for the week? Or who work retail and happen to have Wednesday off? Don't be bitter just because you can't get a chance at the title because you have to work. That doesn't make people who do get the chance at the title "Welfare Leeches".

However, I will agree that there can be ways around it for those that are unfortunate enough to miss the chance at the title. Having multiple titles, for one. First 100 get one title, next 100 get another title, so on and so forth. 


In any case, don't be so judgmental of people. It just makes you look distasteful. People won't give your idea a second glance with all that salt. Some food for thought. Happy Hunting!

Don't forget, it's American Turkey-Day this weekend, so results may be late due to that as well, not just due to the fun mess a lot of Maehwas encountered.

Cheers to you, exactly. They accepted the gather logs quest. My quest rolled as intented. (Jordine, Balenos J1) So I was surprised it only happened to some ppl while all of us got the quest from the same database(?)

@Kasumi ~ just read the quoted post and my reply. As I said to my reply, there was no problem with my quest when I got it. I accepted the logs one aswell and deactivated it. When I pressed the nav to get my point again, it pointed to Emma, so I talked to her again and got the location. 
As for the CM post, GIVE ME A BREAK! Our community is so harsh and loves freebies that they wouldn't even say that it was our (yours) fault. I would get that only if all the bladers in a server had the same problem, but as far as I know that did not happen. 
Now, even if what I said above is false, then the CM post as you quoted said "having problems finding the quest NPC" they did not say that the quest was actually bugged or that it was broken for some people. Let's not point fingers to others, that's the easy thing to do, especially when we feel "cheated".

That was all from me, thank you and good luck with the title! :)
