Domain of Istan "Intercept the corpse caravan" Event.

Is the "Intercept the corpse caravan" event in the Domain of Istan map bugged? Been trying to do the event for 2 days but can't find it in the map, I used to see this often a year ago.

  • This is bugged for me as well. I've been on the map for 4 days now and have yet to see it spawn. The 'Sunspear Uprising' meta never goes to the 'Defeat Joko's forces throughout Istan, and intercept corpse caravans to aid the Sunspear uprising' step. The Thunderhead Keep event 'Defend the Zephyrites from the Branded' is also bugged.

  • report an ingame bug report with /bug
    Hope they fix it soon

    This bug is back. You will see a notification that a caravan is starting then it immediately goes away and the great hall event starts back up. I just started visions and I can not complete one of the parts because it currently is impossible to stop what never happens.

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you
    
  • I reported this via /bug

    Same bug here, either the notification shows up for a couple of seconds or doesn't appear at all. No matter what time of day it is. Blocks the progress for Vision.

    Any word on when this will be fixed?

    They really need to create an toggle in the bug report section in game that after so many reports of a broken map within an hour would instantly restart the map like it was a new instance....

    Nothing as of yet, all the "help" I've been given is a condescending talk about how to get into another map instance or report a bug, as if they don't already know that 60% of the S4 content is dead and getting a fresh instance in Istan is virtually impossible.

  • Still a problem on Isle of Janthir server

  • Just wanted to add, Isle of Janthir server with map IP address of 52.203.251.203

    The problem is bigger than just the one map. I was able to get into a fresh map and I was pretty happy because I was going to have a chance to kill the caravan FINALLY! Well I was wrong. The caravan event actually started and we were able to take the caravan about half way down then boom.......... The caravan disappeared along with the event. Then instantly the great hall event started right up. My head just about bounced off my keyboard with disappointment.

    I am getting really close to finishing all the other steps to visions and if this ends up being my only hang up I'm going to be pretty upset and that's putting it lightly.

    Is this being looked into? Acknowledgement of the problem would be nice.

  • Hi there,

    I have exactly the same problem than you. And it's the last item that I need to finish the collection of "Vision I"....
    And staying for a while on this map for no event, that's give me a headache...

    I wrote a report bug but nothing yet. Please, make something to fix this problem Anet.

    Thanks!

    I have the same problem, been camping Istan for 2 days now and no corpse caravans in sight.

  • Excursion.9752Excursion.9752 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Pretty much waiting on this to progress on visions. Feeling pretty agitated that I've done all this work to be held up by this... Think its about time to just give it to us . You could even sell it on a vendor at the docks.

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you

    Good idea! Hope the developers read your suggestion and apply it if they can't debug the pre-event.

    Same problem for me, its been almost a week now.

  • Excursion.9752Excursion.9752 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I got excited when I saw my game updating yesterday. Then I looked at the patch notes.....

    This is a progress blocking bug that should be hot fixed. I guess this is what I get for not going after vision earlier. I remember way when the corpse caravans were plentiful and used to avoid them because of how much HP those things have. Now I'm just looking for a a dead body to throw on the back of a dolyak just so I can get this achievement.

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you
    
  • +1, need to fix this thing and/or allow skipping this part of achievement while it is bugged

  • This alone has been blocking my progress on Vision for weeks. To say I'm agitated at this point is an understatement. I've met plenty of people in game who have reported this. It should be fixed by now.

  • Excursion.9752Excursion.9752 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Well while we wait here's a tip that you may want to start doing each day until it gets fixed. Get a deal on your Funerary Incense by completing all the hearts in Domain of Vabbi. Instead of them costing 100 trade contracts each they are reduced to 5. You can get 8 per day.
    This is the video I used to figure out the quickest way to do them : https://youtu.be/lhG41UeT48U?t=438

    My friend and I have a bet going that I will get all Funerary Incense I need through using hearts only before I will get credit for killing a caravan.......

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you
    
  • Well, this bug gives me me short-term demotivation to play this game, i relied on getting vision soon as my 6th legendary trinket and use it to play new characters with new builds without necessity to get a bunch of ascended items etc.

  • Dean.3056Dean.3056 Member ✭✭

    Yes plus 1

  • still bugged, last thing I need to finish Vision :/

  • +1. Hopefully they will fix it in the near future.

    Note that it is possible to get a fresh instance in Istan exactly twice a day. Players tend to run it daily when the Palawadan event timer is about 15mins to firing, both immediately before and after daily reset. This is because Palawadan rewards are only once per day, so this is the only time Istan is still active and spawning multiple instances of the map.

    You'll only have about a 2 hour window and your timing must be precise. LFG may be needed.

    I would create a ticket for this bug, but am certain its already been ticketed multiple times and don't want to further overwhelm and already overwhelmed support.

    I wouldn't think surely a hot-fix for this would be too difficult, as in my experience of camping Istan searching in vain for the Caravans I've seen the event start, then suddenly vanish and Great Hall start.

    The very odd reason to why these Caravan Events were working totally fine, what's the reason to cause them to glitch ?? * A Bug in the System perhaps*

    If anyone notices this is fixed please can you advise on this thread, as I've no further purpose to return to Istan other than for the last part of this Vision collection.

    This video allows you to realize that there is a serious bug.
    The pre-event lasts 2 seconds ... Sometimes it does not even appear!

    Yeah, looks like bug is not in caravan event itself, but in the Sunspears Uprising meta phase which allows caravan event to spawn.
    Would be good if anybody from Arenanet could comment on this... as it is uncertain if it's worth to get rest of this trinket done and money to craft it prepared at all, if this bug is not going to be fixed soon.

    I guess it's for this reason too. The wiki (english) explains : "Depending on how busy the map is the pre-event stage may be completed quickly".
    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Sunspear_Uprising

    Currently, the conditions to unlock this pre-event is too old and make it impossible to do it today...

    I guess we need a new build of this pre-event or a possibility to have more maps (or an another item to finish this step of Vision -for joking- )

  • Excursion.9752Excursion.9752 Member ✭✭✭✭

    As I stated before on this topic. From my experiences a new map does not remove the bug nor did logging in right after the last patch. There is a bigger problem here I think.
    Just sell it on the Volatile Magic vendor for 1000 volatile magic and call it a day. Once it is fixed then remove it. Like others have stated it is very demotivating.

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you
    
  • "The busy" is probably sort of irrelevant, even when it's around meta time and there are people on map it is borderline impossible to get caravans to spawn, and before recent patch this was apparently not a problem (?)

    Important - quote from support after I sentticket: "We suggest encouraging other players to submit reports for this event as well, as this will help the development team gauge how many players are being impacted by this bug. If there is a fix, it will be posted on the forums along with any other game updates."
    It is about using "/bug" command ingame, so i suggest you to go to Istan (may be even better if you go around one of caravan spawn spots) and use the command to fill ticket. Your position and character info will be sent as part of bug report. I would personally mention that bug might not be in caravan event itself but meta event phase.

    I agree with this one, should be done on next update if they cannot spend enough time to check relevant Istan meta/caravan logic code.

  • Super frustrating

    Bump, affecting countless players trying to complete: Visions of Istan.

    @Excursion.9752 Just sell it on the Volatile Magic vendor for 1000 volatile magic and call it a day. Once it is fixed then remove it. Like others have stated it is very demotivating.

    ^^^ Totally agree, this would be the fastest "short-term fix", easy to implement on a hot-fix, and would not detract too far from the significant amount of other stuff you have to do (e.g. complete Istan Mastery) to make the collection any easier.

    P.S. If you have not already done so, the best way to get this noted directly to the Devs is to go to one of the 3 locations in-game as per the bugged events:

    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Champion_Corpse_Caravan

    Event coffin (map icon).png [Group Event] Intercept the corpse caravan departing from Heretic's Arena (80)
    Event coffin (map icon).png [Group Event] Intercept the corpse caravan departing from Champion's Dawn (80)
    Event coffin (map icon).png [Group Event] Intercept the corpse caravan departing from the Astralarium (80) 
    

    When you are at that location type " /bug "

    A window should pop-up: Support 'report a bug'

    Make sure you check-box the "Blocking-progress" as this should help to escalate further up the waiting-list.

    Complete very brief description of issue, along the lines of " Corpse Caravan events bugged, spawn and then vanish " or whatever, just keep it short to the point, SUBMIT when you're done. We won't get a response back from this, but the more players that flag this issue, I'm hopeful it will get flagged more at the Devs end. Thanks !

  • Excursion.9752Excursion.9752 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Vision - Now the hardest legendary to get in the game lol. I have officially given up on this for the time being. I will check back after each patch but until then I'll try to focus on something else. This is flat out unacceptable.

    Yeah... out of everything that could get broken in game, they broke THIS event at THIS time, they chose THIS fragile event outta many Istan events for achievement. And they had to create event the way that it disappears when meta phase progresses rather than letting it stick and just not spawn more caravans (bug would be way less severe that way as caravans sometimes spawn, the problem is they despawn before event can be done). And of course the achievement has to be tied to fairly important item... And there is no way to work around this as there is no other choice to get achievement done. It isn't just about the importance of this item or something, but the effort people put to learn some tiny part is bugged when they are halfway done etc. or they "worked hard" to get gold for the item faster. Some spent gold or expensive materials and crafted some account-bound ingredients which now they cannot use to finish the item.

    Welps months of grinding just for this bug to completely stop my (and our) progress.

  • at first I thought the event has three possible locations to spawn and players have been DPSing through the event and thats why it gets completed so quickly... after looking at this forum, apparently its not... this bug makes me want to think that pursuing "Vision" might be in vain and it isn't feasible at all... just fingers crossed, get lucky when istan is crowded on weekends and land on a fresh map instance... might want to upate the event's wiki section and include the bug

    Fresh map instance will probably not help, the Sunspears Uprising meta part when caravans spawn is bugged in the way it's too easy to complete it to the point it usually takes less than 5 seconds. Your best bet is probably trying to login before game patch and delay patching until you are the only player on istan and then nobody else will screw you up by killing 1 awakened monster that doesn't belong to event to progress to next meta phase. If anyone proves otherwise and manages to get unbugged Sunspear Uprising phase on fresh map or finds some tricky way to get this event done please share here.

    Keep bumping, keep sending tickets, keep sending in game bug reports via use of " /bug ".

    It is simply not acceptable players have not had any acknowledgement yet over the weeks this bug has been ongoing.

    We're only asking for some mere communication ?

    I won't be paying any more real money for the game until this bug is fixed (and I suggest others do this too). Many other bugged events at least have slight chance of completion by getting into freshly spawned map instances. This one is deal breaker. If making it sellable at vendor as workaround would be "unfair because vendor achievement completion is too low effort" then make price high enough. I would pay 100 gold to bypass this thing.

    Update after doing more researching: there is a very slim chance to get this done while bugged, I got caravan to 80% of hitpoints (with trash build on me + 1 helper player) and I crafted this strategy:
    1. Get empty map instance that tells you to go away, stick to it, hope that there will be no other players - tends to happen
    2. Do not attack any caravan defenders, only dolyak - i think weapons with long range would be best - the way that seems to work is to attack caravan from the side it is walking to, so you shoot dolyak in the head with rifle deadeyes etc. bring stuff with enough "meta" ranged dps
    3. Be careful about some trash mobs in front of caravan, try to avoid damaging them by repositioning

    I used reaper with axe so there was big room for improvement. Caravan was up for around 90 seconds.

  • Meta event still bugged, would be nice to receive any sort of confirmation that this issue is being looked at.
