Many of the new houses in Everfall have Grass and other greenery coming through their floors.

The Town Hall has also not been updated, which is kind of a weird look given how upgraded everything else is:

Character: PTR Fairuza
Server: NA PTR

  • Character became stuck while pressing “E” to advance the quest dialog. Location is shown in screenshot. Couldn’t open inventory, nor escape. Could open my Map, but just stayed stuck.
    Editing to add that relogging fixed it.

Poggers Whomp

On the quest “Supply Run” once I had initially made the stone blocks and the timber, I had to go back multiple times and open the menus for the woodcutting and the stone crafting tables because it would not recognize that I had already completed that part of the quest. (In other words, it would not check it off my quest tracker in the top right-hand corner, thus not letting me turn it in.

The fix was to continue to open the tables until it recognized that I had indeed done the quest.

The time was around 3:40-ish Central time. (P.M)

  • What is your character name in the PTR:
    PrasinosPTR
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing:
    I was exploring and decided to burn the flags shown in the image below. Unknown to me, these flags are part of the marauder’s initiation. If you tried doing the quest “Marauders Initiation: Fortune Favors” you won’t be able to complete it. I tried resetting the quest but that then locked me from completing the explosive barrel portion of the quest. After restarting I noticed that not only were the black powder barrels missing but that I couldn’t plunder the pirate hoard either.
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: BUG
  • How did the issue affect your gameplay:
    Cannot progress complete Marauder initiation, causing players to possibly be locked out from joining the Marauder faction.
  • Were you able to recover from the issue:
    No.
  • Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:


  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue you experienced:
    Burn the flags before starting the quest. Resetting the quest causes the explosive barrels to be bugged.
