Not getting credit for the ley-line anomaly

Sometimes I don't get credit for the kill for no apparent reason. I get the usual loot it drops upon death but not the event chest. If I kill another one later on that day and do manage to get the chest I still don't get my daily mystic coin. This is getting rather annoying as I'm saving up for a legendary.

    You do know that the mystic coin is only rewarded one kill a day?
    Maybe you killed it just before reset so the next one or more that day dont give anymore?

  • Happened second time in a row today so no, definitely not. Besides, I usually kill the 10:20 UTC one in Gendarran Fields. I think it only ever happened once before the Wintersday patch and now every day feels like a lottery, a kitten one at that.

  • 3 times in a row now. kitten this kitten.

  • I understand no one really cares but this kitten just keeps happening. I've been scammed for something like 10g so far and it doesn't seem to end anytime soon.

  • Probably bit late to comment. I also have this problem. It has happened quite a few times, and it is starting to annoy me a lot. I only do the event for the mystic coin and when I don't get participation for it, it feels like a lot of time wasted. I don't leech, I do the event as fully as I can and do my best in it. Not getting rewards sucks a lot.

    I've been doing it on my main ever since. Hasn't bugged once, excluding Unstable Magics not spawning occasionally after the fight. Might have something to do with the Shadowstone quest(?) chain which I don't have completed on my other characters.

    I've also encountered the very same issue on random other boss events like the Forged Demolisher in the Desolation (Maws of Torment meta).

    Same here. Got this problem multiple times and I've only been doing it for a month or so. I do it the same time every weekday because of work, so obviously it's not from accidentally doing it multiple times a day. I got gold reward for it, so clearly I participated enough (even silver reward gets mystic coin). So it's clearly bugged, and I'm surprise it's been so long (original comment was December last year) and there's no fix.

    This has begun happening to me on a regular basis.

    Like you, this is not happening because I am accidentally doing it multiple times a day.
    Like Nina I am doing FULL damage rotations.
    I get consistently get Silver for the event but I am not getting the bouncy chest where the Mystic Coin hides.
    These days this is happening to me about 50% of the time at the reset Leyline Anomaly.
    A number of my guildies say this happens to them pretty regularly too.

    As I need the coins for legionaries and the like, I have to keep doing the ever-so-silly (I really mean to say #$&@##%&@$#!!!) event. But do decently in the event and not get these 1+ gold Mystic Coins is kind of a swift kick to the nads.

    Is this a bug that affects a minority of us? Is it a government conspiracy?? An UFO Alien encounter??? ZOMBIES????

    Whatever the reason... What... The... H - E - L - L ?!?!?!?!?

  • moving this back up. this has been getting worse and worse for me over the last few months. Used to be able to to this no problem, but now just getting worse and worse. I have maybe a 50/50 shot of getting the chest for the event. Yes, I get event credit via a medal (xp/karma). yes I am participating in the entire event. Yes this is the first time during a day (at reset) so event is not even touched during that reset period yet. today is consecutive day 3 currently.

    Are you doing any other events with that character? If you leave a character on one of the maps and that is the only event you do then you will run into that issue. It is the same for all events in the game.

    That can't be the case since I have a dedicated daily wyvern slayer parked in VB and not once had a similar issue in 2 years or so.

    The game's consistent inconsistency really makes hard to make any sort of generalizations but the other thing you can check is that amount of karma you are getting from the event.

    I've only encountered this from the bouncing chest type rewards like rare from world bosses and the ley line anomaly or the chest at Rhendak. If I recall correctly the VB reward is from the ground chest and not the bouncing chest. I haven't bothered looking since they implemented the right click to dismiss feature. On the other hand Rhendak's is a ground chest but that is also not an "event reward". Maybe the answer is just "spaghetti code".

    The other twist is that the character that ran into the issue DID do other events but it was all in VB. Maybe for some stupid reason it only counts if you do events in core maps. This is like trying to solve a jigsaw puzzle while blindfolded and wearing mitten. -_-

  • Yeah, the VB one is a lootable object on the ground while Anomaly and Demolisher rewards (two events I encountered the bug with) are both bouncy chests. You certainly might be onto something with this one.

    Gonna bump this one cause it just started to happen to me as well a few days ago. Been trying different characters, doing the Ley-line anomaly in different maps, getting gold every time and still no Mystic Coin drop. Very frustrating when that's one of the few things that's supposed to give one.

    It seems you only get one chance at the coin per day. If your first character to do it on that day is somehow disqualified you can't just do it on a different character.

    The only safe approach I have found is that the character doing the anomaly event should also do the event daily.

    Since I have started doing that I haven't encountered the issue again and the account which has always done that(because I play mostly just one character on the second account) has never had the issue.

    That would explain some of it, which means it's pointless to try other events if you didn't get one the first time (which if you did, also makes it pointless to try again).
    Any idea how a character might get disqualified from getting the coin?

    Can't really say with certainty because I haven't done any testing nor was I keeping careful track of events completed but it seems to related to Diminishing Returns. The character where I ran into the problem was also doing matriarch and treasure mushroom so that was at least two other events. Either two events is not enough(but four is) or non-core maps do not count. However some of the map dailies are in expansion maps so that doesn't seem to be the case. On the other hand it takes multiple days for it to trigger the DR for me.

    That sounds like a reasonable theory, and one that fits in my case as well. I did get coins from the anomaly event for 4 days, but I didn't do any other event with that character, and then it stopped. Will try to do 4 other events with it now and see if it may unlock it for tomorrow's anomaly. Thanks for taking time trying to figure this out :smiley:

  • Sure enough, did 5 events on the map before the daily reset leyline event, and got a coin, so I'd say you were right on the money there. :)
