  • What is your character name in New World:
    Steetoh
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on:
    Camelot (US WEST)
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing:
    Temestuous chests still only giving a gypsum orb after fix to the previous gear. The Tempest heart repeatable quest should give us the chance to get the original 6 chests again as I was given gear only at 500 GS level so I salvaged it all. There is no way for me to get the chests again after the fix for my expertise level (all 625 with armor)…
  • Is this a bug or an exploit:
    BUG
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay:
    Very negatively as I will never be able to receive those rewards as a usable set of gear if I don’t get the chance to get them again.
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue:
    Nope, and sadly this may be the last straw. I really wanted those sets to play with but not at 500 GS when I am 1000+ hours in and should have received something usable but it’s all gone.
  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:
    No need, self explanatory.
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced:
    Complete the tempestuous chests 6x times before the patch, open the chests, get rekt. Too late to go back and un-open them.

I and apparently everyone else who is interested are unable to find the supposed new solo quest to bypass the need to do the “Dynasty shipyards expedition”. There was supposed to be a quest for this added in the last big update. But, it must be missing or hidden pretty well.

Castle of Steel

Describe the issue you are experiencing:
Prior to patch, if you pressed E when viewing storage you would receive a warning message asking if you really wanted to remove all items.

Bug or broken feature

(if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay:
Accidentally moved my entire weapons and armor storage to my inventory after running multiple dungeons. Lost more than an hour re-sorting everything.

(if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue:
Sure, but this feature (e to remove inventory) is mostly useless - and even if you want to keep it in then remap it to a key that isn’t used for other common activities.

  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:
    nah

  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced:
    press e when viewing inventory. the warning message is no longer present. be overwhelmed with the amount of stuff you are now carrying and waste hours of time getting it put back properly.

    MoonRayn

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on:
    Ohonoo

  • Describe the issue you are experiencing:
    Random bug issues throughout gameplay. Latest one: Fish Reagents: Catch and Salvage Hooked Squid and Barbed Catfish. As soon as I caught both, go to inventory, items not there. So in game it shows I’ve caught it, but I cannot salvage because it’s not there. BTW, squid was cute.

    2022-04-09 (2)

  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced:
    Go fish, catch item, have it sucked into the ether :frowning:

I must not forget to mention the numerous times I’ve had to Alt+F4 out of the game, because unstuck doesn’t work, or I’ve used it and can’t use it again due to cooldown. Fishing sometimes doesn’t show a line or a prompt at all, can’t recast, Alt+F4.

I’ve had so many bugs, if I reported every one, I’d not be playing the game. I LOVE this game, but it’s making it hard.

** Any news on this? This is the second main quest bug I’ve reported, and I cannot progress on either of them.

  • Do a townboard mission and get only +250 standing reputation even with all the bonuses and crap. For example, Cooking “Carb Supplies” is 70 Project Points, 4.80 Coins, 627 Standing, 2255 XP. I only get 250 standing. I reported this before.

edit: seems to be a display reward issue? Sometimes I get the full amount of rep, but it still says +250 gained.
