Can't buy "Dragon Mastery Crystal 2" from a faction vendor

I can't purchase the thing that is needed to unlock and train the "Great Champion" mastery track.
Anyone perhaps having the same issue?

  • same here, stuck at Calm in the Storm- Ready your allies and await the next development and talking to Lady Camilla as well

    It's because the episode is being piece-mealed further by content being locked behind global progression.

  • Same problem here.

    If this is time-gated, then it's extremely poorly explained/indicated.

    Well, then good to know that everyone has the same "problem" too. It would have been less confusing to not show the tracks that are available in the future like with previous releases.

    so what do you need to do, apparently not time gate as it is still not there today

    what to do to progress?

    Probably wait months until the second part of the episode...

  • finally found it, it takes 6 days for each mastery event to happen, so 5 more days to wait

    In my opinion, this is just terrible design.
    I don't like having to buy Masteries, especially if the currency only comes from mind-numbingly boring and disappointing grinds.

    The least Arenanet could have done is hide the currently unavailable masteries, similar to what they did with the Raid masteries.
    Now, the people who care for Spirit Shards (if there even are such people) can't collect them.

    Yes it is clearly an issue. I am at my max at 346, I just got 347 and I am seeing other people with 349. So I know it can be done. This has to be bug!

    I just submitted this as a bug for ARCNET to look at and hopefully fix. You might consider doing the same thing.

    Not really a bug since I'm sitting at 349 which is the max at the moment before buying the 2nd crystal. The full max once all tracks are unlocked would be 358

    You need to exchange five of the blue crystals with the female Awakened Crystal Bloom vendor.

    Map chat is never good for anything these days. That's why I have it turned off. It might have been good a few years ago but the quality has dropped with every year since 2012 in my opinion.

    Have to agree, there was quite a bit in this episode that confused me and took a while to figure out.
    It was only after completing the 3 current missions in public that I realised they scaled for single player in private >.<

  • So I have 5 blue crystals, vendor who had the first crystal has no more - will check back tomorrow. If someone has the answer it would be great to know (i.e. is it the same vendor as the first crystal and how do you get the second one to show, yes I have completed the first two masteries of the track)...

    You cant wait 18 more hours when the patch should hit tomorrow

  • 24 hours later, no info... Not a problem if its a bug but why dont they say its a bug?

    Overall I agree with the comments along the lines of single use masteries being underwhelming, particularly when they are not implemented well or explained. Will check again tomorrow - maybe its another time gate concept, add bugs that delay peoples progress :expressionless:
