I came back after a long break, leveled a new char to 80, and now the Glory of Tyria has been tracking Zhaitan for 45 minutes.
How old is this bug now?
i soloed it recently, not exactly sure what bug you referring to?
The one where nothing happens after you go aboard the Glory of Tyria and you sit around on an airship with Destiny's Edge until you quit the game or port out.
I've had this happen once, but then I found one of the enemies you're required to kill on the lower level.
Same to me. When that happens, it simply means one foe remains stuck somewhere, a bit hidden, stucking the progress. I usually found it on lower level, but sometimes also just stuck on one console or cannon somewhere around.
I'm out of my mind, feel free to leave a message...
This is in a phase with no enemies though...just after getting onto the big ship, there are no cutscenes or dialogues or anything, and no enemies anywhere.
That's one bug I've never had, and I've done this instance a lot, both as a dungeon and as a solo story. Going by the other replies it sounds like it's not very common so Anet may not be aware of it. Hopefully you submitted a bug report when it happened but if not I recommend sending one now - it won't have all the automated info attached, but it would at least let them know this can happen.
The nearest I've had is getting stuck on the crashing airship, unable to move to the new one with everyone else (I think I was downed just as the cut scene started) and annoyingly this was before they 'fixed' the map-out bug by killing you if you drop too low (which would have allowed me to waypoint to the new ship) so I just ended up stuck in the water under the map and had to start over.
"Hard knocks, bad luck, been knocked down,
You got back up, rise up, shine on, keep on fighting, the war is almost done...But then I hear you're gone.
I feel, when the lights go down, you are still here, all you hold dear remains.
Your star never fades."
I did submit a bug report in-game at the time, as well as a support ticket. I just ran the instance again and am having the same problem; I move to the new ship, Logan says, "Did you miss me?" and then everyone stands around listening to the dragon noises.
I've had this bug three times. I can't find any enemies on the Glory of Tyria, and it doesn't move (when I hover my house above the waypoint the number stays the same) and I sit there for half an hour before quitting. It's really annoying. This happens as soon as I get on the Glory of Tyria.
Got lucky on one run and got my revenant through the instance a month or so ago. No clue how I did it.
Just got a new char up to 80 and yep! STILL BUGGED, and I still have gotten zero response from ANet on this.
Update: a second attempt was even worse than the first. Logan was standing around on the first airship when everyone else was like O NO WE CAN'T LOSE HIM AGAIN, Caithe wore a green Story Star the entire instance, and after I flung myself off of the Glory of Tyria in an attempt to get things moving, a Whispers agent ran over to rez me but decided to stare at my corpse for a minute first.
Foo on bugged story quest. Boo on bugged story quest! Sylvari hates bugs and the eggs they came from!
After killing Zhaitan's Mouth it goes into the cut screen and then I get kicked out. Cannot get past that part. I've done it 4 times with the same results. Very frustrating!
