    Went to the Brisban Wildlands and encountered this Hero Challenge and I went to the marker. Only to discover that the HP bar of the Spirit appeared in the quest log (like every "boss" monster") before I even talked to it. So I walked up to the thing and saw that it is bugged since it doesn't even allow me to challenge it. I saw that a bunch of other people were also trying to do the challenge and apparently encountered the same issue. So I am posting this here to see if it can catch the attention of someone that can fix the issue, and to ask has anyone else encountered this bug on different servers.

  • I believe if there is a challenge reset delay of HP Npc this bug can be fixed

    Everything has the right to live

  • Sorry for posting a new discussion (i now there is a merged one) but i did some Hero challenges after halloween build (1st one and completed Sparkfly Fen, Mount Maelstrom, Straits of Devastation) and never encountered such Hero Challenge (s) being stopped by its event stuck with it.
    So i call upon ArenaNet's Tech. team to review and make this bug high-priority because it's both blocking progress and confusing (if someone completed world and have content guide to show events it'll show hero challenges as events) and rest is for you to decide and i know you will.

    Incredible that this is not hotfixed. It's blocking a lot of things, from bare map completion, to legendary crafting.

    Did the bug exists before last patch (10-16-2018)? If not, I miss it in the release notes for last patch.
    If the bugged patch runned through QA, I am not sure how QA could help this time ...

    The bug has existed for a loooooong time.

    QA is to make sure the patch actually fixes what it is supposed to as opposed to not or possibly making it worse or breaking something else. That is the ideal case anyway ...

    Also IF all these reports are actually from that bug mentioned above then I wonder why there are so many more people failing at the fights recently.

    this hero point is Bugged and could use the community's help in REPORTING this so we can get enough reports in for Anet to Fix This Hero Point

    notice the hero point is not fighting and just standing there ^

  • Count me as being disappointed that this is taking so long to fix, however, I would rather have the "story bug" fixed where people are still being disconnected in long story missions especially just before getting the story reward.

    The Devs have stated that once the fix clears QA, it will be released with the following content update.

    That can take up to 1 month

  • Linken.6345Linken.6345 Member ✭✭✭✭

    They havent fixed any spot you were lucky and got into a overflow map, you could try to guest to a german or spanish server to see if their maps are bugged aswell.

    Or longer.
    The developer who mentioned the schedule was asked whether they thought this was urgent enough to warrant a hotfix; there has been no official response since. (To be fair, a well-functioning team wants to keep hotfixes to a minimum, because they suck up a lot of time that could be spent fixing other stuff. I just think that blocked map completion is probably worth making the exception.)

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

    This morning I fixed a bug that was affecting several skill challenges where if you ran away after starting the skill challenge, the NPC would turn friendly but leave the event active, so they wouldn't respond to new challengers. Once QA confirms the fix, it'll go into the next content update.

    You quote it but dont bother to read it.

    "Once QA confirms the fix, it'll go into the next content update."

    Have they said QA is finished with it and if yes have we had another content update after they said so?

    Edit
    The dev quote was from the 19th so last friday answer no we havent heard anything else over the weekend and no we havent had a content update

  • Just to inform, hero challenge stays bugged even with map instance changed (more popular instance)

    Even if we did it said content update we had that last week.
    We wont get any more content before next living story update would be my guess.

  • Unless the Devs change their mind (and I would guess that would be upper management), it will be some time after Halloween before the fix is released. Content updates don't get released very often; it may be the next LW release.

  • The Vigil Tactician at Rally Waypoint in Straits of Devastation has been bugged for several days now. Last HP i need for world completion, send help to rescue the tactician please. https://imgur.com/Mpv8aJD

    and that is exactly the problem here. If this fix really goes into the next content update, it could be months away. Instead of shipping a fix that is clearly done, according to a dev, they literally explain how to cause the bug. And a day later, every single fighting-hero point is bugged.
    I can't be the only one who thinks this is just ridiculous. It looks like Anet do not only NOT CARE, it's like they actively sabotage their own game. I can't hit myself with enough facepalms to endure this.

    tl;dr: Next content update might be months away. Instead of Fixing it, they explain how to cause the bug. Why?

    We don't know if the 'fix' has passed QA, yet. It wouldn't do any good to patch in fix that either didn't work, or broke other content.
    I'm sure the Devs and the QA Team want this issue resolved as soon as possible, and will release the fix as soon as they are satisfied and allowed.

    Don't forget you can visit the Heroics Notary to complete Hero Challenges, as well.

    Good luck.

  • From what the mods and I can see, a lot of people are creating new threads for an issue that is known, acknowledged, and posted about by a dev. Please please check the forum before making yet another thread on the same subject.

    Do not post a new discussion on the same topic. There is no need to call upon the team to do anything, since a dev already is active in this thread (into which your thread was merged). Always post in an existing thread, when possible, as that helps us see the depth of a problem, as opposed to a lot of separate threads.

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to do world completion, and one of the hero points in Brisban Wildlands is bugged. I asked in mapchat and apparently it has been bugged for days. Don't know if it's known or not.

    It's by "Restless Arboreal Spirit [Hero Challenge]".

  • It's known, evidenced by the (merged Skill Challenge NPCs bugged) thread with the Dev response.

  • Tribune Sorya Fatekiller not working also/still

  • Astyrah.4015Astyrah.4015 Member ✭✭✭

    +1ing this merged thread, reporting about the tengu bridge in caledon forest, the tengu HP npc is bugged as well, couldn't 100% caledon on my new necro alt ^^

    HP Tribune Titus worked 1 minute ago.

    Update: tribune Sorya still bugged

  • i got that birdman HP problem as well and the hell is, I am now 99.999% completed the total maps, except that HP! LOL I hope that will be fixed before my next character gets to 99.999% done

  • @Dreamy Lu.3865 said:
    I confirm: We are now with a friend at Owl HP in Snowden Drift. If we talk to the NPC, the orange circle and log tells it is on, but no foes appear. There seems to be another one on same map not working.

    I just came across this bug in Straits of Devastation, Rally Waypoint: the HP npc only lets you talk and close the conversation; there's no option to actually commence the HP.

    @Jeffrey Vaughn.1793 said:

    So zone completion will be impossible for another week, at the very least...?

    You could possibly use a Proof of Heroics for that last Hero Challenge, if you have some.

    Good luck.

    Same problem here: One last Hero Challenge (Swift Atrow, Caledon Forest) missing for 100 % World Completion. Scrolls of Heroics doesn't work. I just get Hero points but no map completion (used more than 10 Scrolls).

    You probably have to enter the map (again, after using the scroll) for it to count.

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

  • Or, since Proofs of Heroics complete random Hero Challenges all over Core Tyria, the Hero Challenge in that particular map wasn't completed.
    You can check the map, and if it was completed, travel to the map for your reward.

    Good luck.

  • Tried both before: Used it in WvW and on the particular map. No effect.

  • Um, you can't 'use' a Proof of Heroics in a PvE map. You must exchange them for a Notarized Scroll of Heroics from the Heroics Notary in WvW or the Hall of Memories.

    Maybe you meant you used a Notarized Scroll of Heroics, though.

  • I've hit so many in the past two days that were bugged, that I had to stop trying to get hero points. The frustrating part of this is that I began focusing on picking up hero points as an alternative to progressing personal quest lines, which are themselves bugged and frequently crash without completing at the very end... forcing a complete redo.

    I may have to take a break for a while in hopes that some of these quality issues can be resolved while I do something else.

  • I was trying to do map completions so I could get some Black Lion Keys and get some Halloween goodies but maybe this bug has conveniently appeared so I'd have to buy some keys instead?

    can we just get ONE good reason why a progression-stopping bug like this isn't treated like the gamebreaking bug it is? Why is the fix, as it is apparently finished, not shipped as a hotfix? How can it be okay that Map completion, trait-progession and leggy-crafting is literally blocked, while the fix is ready?
    It really gives a feeling as if you guys just aren't interested in the experience of players anymore :/
    I am very disappointed. :-1:

    QA has to make sure, that the bugfix does not break something else. Releasing a fix for what seems to be a small thing may have unexpected consequences, it's not as easy as it seems to be.

    To be fair, it's nowhere near gamebreaking. It's not cool and would better be fixed soon, but gamebreaking is something, that hinders you to acctually play the game. This hinders you to complete maps yes, but you still can play the game. Most likely it's even possible to complete all specializations without these HP's.

  • Since this is an issue affecting not just a few players but the entire playerbase.
    Can we expect this to be fixed in a week, a month, or the next 3 months?
    The next content update is a clue but still pretty vague considering the recent release schedules.

    Because, to be fair, it's not "progression-stopping" in any sense of the term. Leveling to 80 gives you all the hero points you need to fully rank up all core specializations. The only things Tyrian Hero Challenges really do for the player is accelerate the process slightly. As for elite specializations, hero points in expansion maps are the desired places to earn Hero Points as you earn 10x the amount, and they're not broken.

    The only thing being halted is Map completion. That can wait for the next update.

    anyway, if you compare this bug and the long time it has been around, with the quick fixing of some minor issues it is really troublesome. Why not push a hot fix?

    I do not need it, but I mentor a lot, and the newbies really are all disappointed. This isn't good anet. This is ridiculous. 'some gemstore item has a cosmetic issue on some charr' hotfix. 'hp are broken' nothing happens for weeks.

    Seriously?

  • Proof of heroics do not unlock the bugged out Hero Points.
    Hotfixing the proof of heroics to work on the bugged out hero points would be a good option to push out while we wait for the main fix.
