    Message from support >>>
    **The Corpse Caravan event is currently being investigated. We ask that you please continue to submit in-game bug reports, from the point where the event is bugged, so that the development team can continue to gather detailed information surrounding the issue.

    Furthermore we ask that keep an eye on the forums and future patch notes so that you may know when a fix is initiated for this event**.

    Well at least this message from support provides some hope. Its really to bad they couldn't post that in the forums... What ever happened to the promise after the mass exodus of employees saying they would be better communicators. Seems like they fell back into their old ways.

    Lol i had the same msg 4 weeks ago ............................

    Well dang it! Hopes = 0 again.

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you
    
  • Anet is busy with this , they don't care about your event :)

  • @Dydzio.1320 , thank you for that meme, that made my week. Phenomenal stuff dude. Now lets all hope it gets fixed on the 17th. :)

  • I am 99% sure it won't get fixed on 17th.

    Yeah sadly I totally agree with you mate, and to be honest wouldn't advise anyone to get their hopes up so soon.

    Likelihood it will be several weeks, eeeeekkk Months ? before a fix is sorted. #Needs significantly more Dev Time to be spent on current game technical issues/bugs/problems/lag rather than devoting 99% of Dev Time on solely design & development of future content and implementing new skins.

    • Performance > Cosmetics *

    In the meantime, I'm turning my attentions to one of the other bugged events to keep me occupied.

  • Is this fixed? I just did it randomly on a completely non-bugged instance with multiple caravans? Was I just lucky?

  • I just completed it as well! It might be fixed! Everyone go check!!!!

    Might try it after work ends lol hopefully is fixed like u guys said and grats !

  • Still seems to be bugged for me...

  • Still bugged for me as well, congrats though guys - hopefully i can get a non bugged instance one of these days :/

  • Same despawn in a quickness cant even see the yak at all

  • Someone said the map we in did last for 40s we tried to wait for another spawn it just despawnded instantly same map sigh

  • I can confirm i got un-bugged instances like 3 in a row today and got my vision!

  • It beggars belief that this has gone unfixed for so long already... https://imgflip.com/i/4m3cii

  • I guess people have no fate like me wont get it done at all thats just sad.

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

    I still have not obtained my vision yet. But I have got two responses from the support team from two different reps. Here is what was said:

    I wrote:
    "The corpse caravan event is being skipped making it impossible to get the achievement which is necessary for completing the legendary trinket vision. The event line seem to break at the same time the Halloween update started at the beginning of October.

    Would it be possible for a work around and putting and item on the volatile magic vendor that would give us credit for the event while it is being fixed if the fix is not coming soon?"

    1st response:
    "While we understand the frustration that comes from experiencing an in-game bug, we at Customer Support are unable to fix any in-game issues or make any in-game changes, nor are we able to proceed with your request. With that said, we can confirm that the issue you are currently experiencing with the Corpse Caravan is currently a known issue that is being investigate at this time. At the moment we do not have any ETA on when this issue will be fixed, but we do highly recommend keeping an eye on upcoming patch notes and reaching out on the forums for more information on this issue."

    I wrote:
    Since there was a bad hyperlink (I left that part out because of the no need to pass misinformation around) that was sent to me so I asked about that and I got a different response from the support team.

    2nd response:
    "I have looked into this issue and it appears the Dev Team is aware of the matter and working on a solution as quickly as possible. We do not currently have a time frame for this fix, so please keep an eye on the official Guild Wars 2 forums for any updates."

    At least in the 2nd response there is some substance there and not a canned response. Even though we may not get a fix soon at least we know they are working on it to some degree. Trying to stay positive while expecting the worst. Time to put on a tin foil hat and guess that this sudden surge of players completing the event is the dev team working on it? One can only hope.

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

    I finally managed to get it done today, that was pure nightmare experience. No raid boss is as tough to get it done as The God of Cows. RIP to players who still need to get this done, I wish you the best of luck with finding fresh map instance. I camped so hard to get it done that it gave me a little bit detrimental effect on my mental health due to frustration, lol. Your chance might be after patch day - if the patch will drop not during palawadan then patch the game immediately when patch drops and go to istan. If it drops during palawadan then the fresh instance will be bugged, but then if 2nd map instnace spawns outside palawadan hours then it will be unbugged.

  • Just now got the event successfully.. we were waiting for sunspear uprising on an about to close map and it failed obviously and we landed on fresh map instance when the timer ran out.. we didnt switch it manually... and we got a fresh map instance and we got caravan event and we went all out war on the cow.... and we succeeded.. FYI.. if ure just reading this, look for an LFG in istan... were trying our best to cc the caravan and kill it at the last minute until it reaches great hall.. glhf...

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

    Happy for everyone who found a workable instance. Meanwhile I'll just sit here and pray to RNGesus that I get one soon.
    During the hours that I typically play, Istan it is fairly empty. So I don't see myself getting it this way unless I get lucky.

    I mentioned earlier in this thread that I started working on Aurora since I had nothing else to do on vision but the caravan. Well today I will finish Aurora... So I was able to craft a different legendary accessory before this was fixed and I had not worked on any of it previously. So it must be some harder than legendary code they are working with because they still cant craft an update. My eyes are anxiously awaiting the 17th patch notes.

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

    today, we did 5 successful caravan events and we managed to invite more ppl.. we tried our best not to deplete the progressbar(defeat mordant crescent forces and interceprt corpse caravans progress bar) too soon so it spawns caravans more and buys time for ppl to get the achi ... and try to keep the awakened casualties to a minimum to maintain the progress bar. my observation is... we have a better chance at a fresh working unbugged istan map when we just wait out the timer on the old map... rather than jumping to the mushroom blessing.... you can try it out.. if you do get a successful caravan map, try to kill the caravan as late as possible.. put up lfg and inv more ppl... cc the cow and kill it if either the progress bar is gonna deplete or the cow is about to reach the great hall

    note: if you get a caravan event and then the progress bar depleted, then the event will definitely fail... the bug has to do with number of awakened dead on a map that qualifies the next step in sunspear uprising meta to trigger... seems the devs forgot to reset the dead awakened count check once the sunspear uprising meta ended... the count seems to check once an awakened or the caravan dies.. so thats my observation

    @Crystal Paladin.3871
    What time UTC are you getting enough numbers to get these new instances? NA or EU? I get the next two days off I may be able to make something work out.

    There were two new instances around 6 PM UTC on EU in last 2 days, but I think it was sorta lucky because based on my experience it's usually really hard to get instance that opened around 3 PM to close, usually next palawadan reopens them. On weekends with more population nobody knows I guess.

  • Just loaded into an Istan map and got the caravan right away, did they fix or something?

  • Seems like mostly are EU the one getting vision done , on NA everyone seems to have trouble getting it people on the map are searching for it and has the bug always

  • Saw arenanet admin flying around istan just now not sure if is a good news they checking it or something lol

    They were probably doing dailies.

  • Any update on this? The event popped up and auto failed itself within seconds... I can't make any progress with my Vision

  • Ugh, just found out that this event has been bugged for a while now. Please fix ANET! If not, what a waste of time farming Vision.

    Hi all, any more news on this bug ?

    Are people managing to find fresh map instances easy and get it done or still struggling ?

    I notice this problem happened earlier in the year, as OP started this thread in April, presumably fixed and then next poster posted same bug October 15th, so 1 Month ago, and still as yet no official announcement or acknowledgment on forum about it :astonished:

    Surely,if this is a repeat of an already previous bugged Event that happened back in April, this should be faster to fix ? > 1 month seems a little long in my book to fix such an event, that has been repeatedly reported in-game over and over for weeks now.

    This is what I've noticed too. I personally not seen any Dev's "flying around" in map but others in the map claim to have seen it. Tomorrows patch notes can't come soon enough.

    @Gazt.6851 kitten sad news mate. Forum needs an "Unlike Icon".

    Tbh I'm not bothered about just me here: It's all the fellow players on the Lw4 maps i've met along the journey. Once you've personally endured the * insert as appropriate * = ? enjoyment / pain / fun / hardship / torment / insanity / never-ending time-sink feeling ? of Legendary Collections makes you appreciate what others are striving for as well, and loads of luck to everyone grinding out Leggy Collections as they're not for the faint hearted.

    But once you've met that "dreaded cursed BUG in the system" that seems to be affecting so many Legendary Collections: Is it any wonder players get disheartened as that mountain to climb just becomes a BIGGER mountain to climb with no immediate life-line thrown our way by Anet: Seriously come on Anet: We're not asking for a Helicopter to get to the top of the mountain, but at least throw us some rope here.......

  • Just wanted to add myself to this thread so devs can sees just how many people are frustrated with this bug, still waiting... last thing I need for vision. Praying tomorrows patch will fix this.

  • I was able to get this few minutes after I searched into what I needed to do... to see how difficult some ppl have just to finish this event... I must have been lucky!
    for those who did not get it yet, keep trying. you'll get there.

    Ppl waiting for a fix... gl on that, I don't think they will fix it since there still are a decent amount of ppl getting the ach done.

  • EU server may be able to do it right now ASAP after patching game as patch dropped at off-palawadan hours.

  • Got it done ! Finally

  • Thank you anet for fixing "Fixed a bug that caused snow trolls to inadvertently self-destruct if they were killed while charging their jump skill" in this patch instead of the caravan event. The snow trolls bug caused so many issues, so indeed it had to be prioritised above insignificant bugs like the caravan event. Love you guys xoxo

  • LOL THEY DID NOT BOTHER FIXING IN THE NEW UPDATE WTH?

  • Falan.1839Falan.1839 Member ✭✭✭

    I was able to complete it after the patch dropped. I am not sure if it was a sneak fix though, might have been just the one unbugged instance after the patch.

    Im going to guess that people that got in after the update were able to get the kill because of the fresh map. This will never be an option for me because I have to work when they generally update the game.

    Edit:
    Could someone report if the caravan events are still bugged after Palawadan . This may help me prevent the rage that is rising in my body.... I guess it could increase it lol.
