[Bug] Can't progress Griffon acquisition quests

Just thought I'd share this in case it happens to anyone else.

So I was doing the open skies achievement quests a map at a time and in order. I completed up to the domain of Vabbi achievements, but when I thought I had finished I noticed that the "Open Skies: Elon Riverlands" had reverted back to incomplete and only two items obtained, those being the two from the heart quests. I did not receive my 50g back. The main problem is that I don't have the Sadi equipment finding quest achievement, but it's complete and I have the mini reward from it still. So I can't actually complete it again to get the achievement back. I submitted a ticket, hopefully they fix it.

    Another bug, this one stalls the collection for me:

    I have completed the "Equiqment Tracker" collection and received the mini etc. but "Golsa, the Rune of Honor" is not unlocked in the "Open Skies: Elon Riverlands" collection and I can not do it again, because its is a collection. So I can not finish it.

    Register and check your guild leaderboard to see who is the best in your guild and who finished achievements first.

  • I have the same. I have completed everything else just missing the one item from the "Open Skies: Elon Riverlands" [Golsah, the Rune of Honor]

    Really annoying after spending 250g and then having one item left.

  • Actually just managed to fix it. For some reason when talking to Master Sergeant Shadi and extra dialogue appeared at the bottom and selecting that brought up the completion of the collection accomplishment.

    Thanks, for the info, yes, that worked for me, too. :)

  • Talking to the NPC again didn't help me :( and I am having this issue, too. Clearly a bug.

    Same bug, Equipment Tracker finished, no rune for the hidden mount and no extra dialog option

    Edit: Seems logging out and back in completed the rune for the collection.

    Same here, though I only spent 200g and about 12 hours so far...

    False alarm -- you have to pick a (not obvious) dialogue option to get the reward.

    Any chance someone could clarify what this mystical, vague "dialogue" might be? :#

    Seems people still don’t like to read ingame text. Too confusing.

    Better get a wriggle on.

  • I can't even get the achievement started even no more what response I use? Any help?

    Good luck.

  • I may have not been clear, Golsah, the Rune of Honor is not being triggered i.e. the Equipment tracker when I speak with Master Sergeant Shadi. I have the eggs but when I fight the Water Djinn there is no sword drop. What I am doing wrong?

    The sword part of Equipment Tracker drops from a Fire Djinn. Not a water Djinn.

    Better get a wriggle on.

  • I can't progress the Forgotten Debris quest to obtain a griffon. Interactable locations and npcs do not present the necessary dialogue options to obtain items. Tried logging in and back out, restarting computer, exiting and re-entering the Elon Riverlands, entering party, leaving party, re-entering party, et cetera. Nothing. Any ideas for what might work?

    I don't see anything about Forgotten Debris for https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Open_Skies:Elon_Riverlands
    Nor do I see anything about https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Forgotten_Debris
    (achievement) that has to do with obtaining the Griffon.

    Perhaps, I'm blind; but, I have the Griffon and I haven't completed the Forgotten Debris achievement.

  • Nevermind, managed to span dialogue until I was able to progress.

  • My concern is different and your posts are helpful. For over a year I have been trying to complete "To Kill A God" My problem is that the little dragon does nothing as described, she just stands there and gets Grasped by Balthazar, and he has killed my character over 121 times last I counted. I had him down to 50% health and his ability to kill my character quickened to a roughly faster and faster 15 second kills of my ranger. Is this a bug or should I quit trying to kill him and forget the griffon? My family is stunned when they see it all happen and feel that killing Balthazar is impossible. Any suggestions?

    Here's a walkthrough: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/To_Kill_a_God#Walkthrough
    (I did the mission on a Core Ranger.)

    If Aurene isn't providing the circles to stand in, perhaps a -repair of the client is in order?

    Good luck.

  • My problem is that I can't use the 'flap' skill on the borrowed griffons, which means I can't get quite a few things for the collections. I've been doing my best using my other mounts, but now I'm to a point where I cannot reach the next egg without using a griffon. I've tried everything I can think of (double checked my settings and keybindings, logged out and back in, restarted my computer, submitted a ticket which led me here, tried using the skill in every possible scenario I can come up with). I'm just really frustrated because at this point, I've sunk 100g into a mount and it's looking like I won't even be able to finish getting it.

    Have you looked in the Wiki (link above) for tips/guides/walkthroughs for the egg in question?
