HoT and PoF missions are completely broken. As others have reported - ZERO issues with any other part of the game, or any other game. Just attempted Prisoners Of The Dragon again (a 20-30 minute mission, mostly that long because of unskippable talking scenes). It's obviously not my issue as the game cuts off at exactly the same part every time:
Wouldn't be so bad if the cool stuff like griffon wasn't gated behind completing the main story. I feel like paying someone to complete it for me as I am running out of options. But I have a feeling this is probably against the rules, like it is in most games. But ANet seems to not give a kitten about fixing it so why should I care?
ANet, if you're reading this - please just instantly complete all the story missions on my account.
