Stinging Wind Hero/Skill Point [Bugged?]

AREA
Region ~ Shiverpeak Mountains
Zone ~ Snowden Drifts
Stinging Wind hero point ~ just North of Lost Child's Sorrow Waypoint [&BLYAAAA=]

PROBLEM
I can't start the fight with Stinging Wind, nothing happens except random chat from him. Other players at that hero point are having the same issue.

BACKGROUND
I am on the Desolation Server. I am in the UK. I was playing solo.
I've tried 3 days in a row but still have the same problem.

Also brought up by someone on Reddit.

    Same here, still bugged also tried in groups of friends
    EU Server: Abaddons Maul

  • I tried it just now and it's working again, yay.

  • Fort Aspenwood
    Bugged for me too

  • Still bugged, bunch of players just standing around. This is the only Skill point left that's preventing me from fully completing the map (((

    Confirmed it bugged. This is annoying.

    MEH !!!

  • Anvil Rock
    Bugged here too. It's the last thing I need in the Shiverpeak Mountains.

  • +1 How long has this been a problem? Any news on a fix?

  • When the 'fix' comes, it would come with a Release/major patch. Whilst awaiting said fix, your best bet is to find another map instance where the event is not stalled, i.e: check after reset; when the map is part of the Daily; and guaranteed, right after a patch/release.

    Good luck.

  • If you really need it, you can try your luck in wvw. There is a merchant that sells random hero points. It costs "Testimonies of Heroics" that you get from ranking up in wvw. It took about 20 until I got the Stinging Wind hero point.

    Once you get to t3 participation it would only take 5 minutes at most. You can get 6 testimonies from a skirmish chest.

    128 hero points later from wvw I have map completion. And now literally every other hero point is complete. It was the LAST one.

    But you shouldn't have to do that!

  • Khisanth.2948Khisanth.2948 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I suspect it is something like someone starting it, dies while trying to do it and is the only person around but they WP out of the map. It is not the only HP that breaks like that. Might test that out next week when the patch comes out.

  • Why does this bug still exist?

  • MvP.3970MvP.3970 Member

    This still haven't been fixed? If you are not capable of fixing the issue, just remove this HP from the game. This is ridiculous, 3 days checking always bugged

    Bug-fixes only come with patches/releases, or with the hot-fixes which come shortly after a patch/release.
    In the meantime, entering a different map may suffice. Try when the map is a Daily, after a patch, etc.

    Good luck.

  • Come on Anet. This HP has been bugged for years!!! Fix it already! And dont give me the BS "fix only comes with patch" or whatever, this is just ridiculous!

  • Stinging Wind Hero Point is still bugged; hope they fix it soon.

  • Arenanet, PLEASE fix this? I Just want to complete the map

    Make sure to try it immediately after the patch tomorrow, when the map resets. It will be your best chance to complete the map.

    Good luck.

    I did and it worked. Thank you. I credit your good luck message with my success.

  • Lol. It's not luck, just being there when the map resets and before the event can stall again.
