Pepperseed Event Will Not Progress

The Help Pepperseed deliver Zephyrite supplies to the Forge event in Thunderhead Peaks will not start despite all the pre requisite events/tasks being done.
The prerequsite events/activities have definetely all been done as I have sat there and done them myself, the NPC correctly states what has/hasnt been done but even when everything has been done Pepperseed still does not spawn to allow the Escort mission to begin. I've sat in the map and repeated all the events for several hours at a time and Pepperseed has still not spawned to continue onto the next event.

    Ran into this issue tonight while playing myself which is frustrating. As you can see from the posted images all the conditions were set for the event, but the Wasmaa event just kept spawning every 20 minutes and the chain progressed no further.

    What is the status on this? I am facing this issue too at the moment. Tried it on 2 different maps. As stated above, all prerequisite are fullfilled, but Pepperseed is not showing up.

  • It's still happening. Everything is ready but Waasma's event still happens every 20 minutes, and Pepperseed is nowhere to be found despite being "ready" according to Supply Foreman Alan.

    What bothers me mostly is that according to another post, there have been known issues with the Pepperseed event chain since... like January? Doesn't give me a ton of hope to see this fixed to get the achievement, unless it's some unrelated bug in the same event chain.

  • This is -STILL- happening. I'm beyond angry that all the mind numbing grinding I've done for vision is being blocked by this kitten.

  • Bump - still not fixed. This sort of thing really discourages achievement hunters like me from playing the game.

  • This is still happening and blocking Vision progress since we can't spawn the "Defend the Zephyrites from the Branded" event for the "Vision of Action: Thunderhead Peaks" update for "Visions of Thunderhead Peaks" unless we can escort Pepperseed first. Supply Foreman Alan and Sayida both say that the Pepperseed escort is complete. Every 20 minutes the Waasma event will pop and regardless of if it gets done or not, Pepperseed never shows up again.

    If it makes a difference, this was on IP

  • Bump, IP 62 for me as well. Only rarely do other IPs open, usually in evening NA times. Also apparently the event does actually happen when the map "resets" at weekly raid reset time. 3am EST I believe, I'll try it out tonight and see what happens. But everyone make sure you submit tickets until Anet decides to fix this bug.

  • Bump - still bugged. :/

  • This appears to still be bugged....ticket has been submitted....but they are on Vaycay. I heard it works once at reset....cannot confirm yet.

  • Jesus, the amount of blocked progress by one quest is pretty annoying. Can we get a mod or someone to reply that this is being worked on??

  • this bug is still persisting, I am unable to complete the vision collection because of this bug. I tried to change the map several times, killing and rekilling Waasma's buddy doesn't change anything, waasma always ends up coming back and proposing the same event again and again, pepperseed never appears. I don't know what to do except not playing anymore.

    Yeah, experiencing this myself, several hours on thunder dead peaks today, nothing. Just wasmaa starting over and over again...

  • Make sure to try immediately after today's patch (in about 6 hours) when everything resets.

    Good luck.

  • Abyssisis.3971Abyssisis.3971 Member ✭✭✭

    That’s not exactly a workable solution to the issue... especially when jobs and sleep need to happen lol

  • still not possible to progress the collection for "Vision". Really infuriating when it's just about this one event that is stuck for days non stop

  • Can agree aswell that its not fixed, been waiting for Days/weeks for event for Vision Achievement.

  • Bump - Still not fixed, resets/patches don't appear to fix this either so we're hard stopped on this vision collection requirement until a dev can step in and correct the issue. Very sad that because of a bug I cannot complete vision which I've been grinding on for several months now. Please address ASAP!

  • I’ve let the team know about this and they’re looking into it.

    ArenaNet Communications Team

  • That is great to hear, but August to February is frankly ridiculous response time for such a major collection blocker.

    Don't worry. It will be fixed right after the bugged Tangled depths Ogre meta chain from 2015.

    ANet is too busy nerfing professions here and there, no time for bugs fixing...

  • dear god not the pepperseeds!!!!! meanwhile wvw has had unplayable lag for far too long.

    te lazla otstara.
    fingers crossed meta ~

  • The event is still bugged even after the patch. You can't fix one event?

  • Still bugged. Can we get a fix or maybe just unlink the "Defend the Zephyrites from the Branded" event from the Pepperseed event if you cannot fix Pepperseed? Or could you change the collection objective to a heart purchase or some doable thing that removes pepperseed's terminal issues as a block to this? Its been a kitten long time for such a major collection being 100% blocked by such a minor thing. Its extremely hard to understand why this isnt working STILL.

    Thank you. Would it be possible to just unlink "Defend the Zephyrites from the Branded" from Pepperseed since TBH I cannot actually remember a time that Pepperseed wasnt buggy or having some kind of issue?? or maybe change the evnt requirement all together? Or heck remove THIS one event requirement and hard code it has complted for everyone with the collection so people can just move on and you guys dont have to even bother fixing the event chain?

    Basically, I think most would be willing to accept anything that got us past being stuck. I can understand limited resources, I can even understand it could be some really strange issue that isnt resolvable with Pepperseed. What I cannot understand is that from Aug 2019-Feb 2020 apparently nothing has been done about this and you are JUST NOW saying you will "let the team know". To be honest that alone is NOT making me feel this being addressed at all.


  • Bump - Any update on this?

  • Well Im not aware of any update to fix Pepperseed, BUT I can confirm that the event chain does run all the way once after a new map. However, the map doesn't seem to be used enough to spawn many new maps. That said, I was able to find a fresh map that worked yesterday by logging in right after the normal patch time. I talked to the NPC and Branded Forgotten and Pepperseed needed to be run. Later the event chain lead to the correct Defend the Zepherites event and I was able to get credit for Visions of Thunderhead. :)

    So I would say it still needs a fix, but it is still possible to get credit provided you can be on to catch a new map at the right moment.

  • are you kitten joking me , it's been over a year and this is still not fixed . :#

  • Tried to get this yesterday after the patch, didn't work. Pepperseed can't be found anywhere and besides that, NPC says: everythings rdy.

  • Bump and edit: it did work for me after I joined a new map. Unfortunately ppl don't tell when the event is up, I even had it on lfg.
    I will try to to catch it again this weekend and put it on lfg, gl for everyone <3

  • I can confirm this is still occurring end of March.

    Hi, is there any progress on that bug? Event still bugged.

  • Xiro.1850Xiro.1850 Member

    No progress at all il would seem, the bug is still happening today, it's really frustrating because it blocks the whole vision progress in which i've already spent a lot of effort... really Anet can't you fix this? thanks!

  • May 25, 2020 and I'm here to report that this event is still buggy AF.

    Been wasting my time all day trying to make this stupid thing progress on different maps.

    Yea it can be a pain. Tomorrow right after patch/reset will be a good time to give it a try and remember its part of a chain, etc, etc. You should get at least one good non-bugged run of the map. Good luck I feel ur pain.

    This issue hathreyn.4138 reported still occurs, I tried on multiple maps to progress to the Defend the Zephyrites from the Branded event and despite Supply Foreman Alan saying all pre-events were done the defense event never occurred. Is there no way around this but to wait for a patch? It is annoying that it is literally impossible to finish the Vision collection at the moment and I'd rather not have to wait for weeks and hope that I can get online right after a patch hits.

    Well, still bugged. Sloppy work there

    Edit: It seems like Pepperseed can be on his second event, where u have to escort him back, while the forgotten event still keeps spawning. I think this is very confusing. It would be better if the forgotten wouldnt spawn while Pepperseed is stuck on his second location

    Event Still bugged , same issues

    Kebab [Kill] - WSR

  • Almost a year later and this is still happening. I cannot complete this for Legendary Trinket Vision.

  • This bug is still there constantly @ArenaNet Team.4819 can this please be fixed as it blocks the collection for Vision forever...

  • the same problem... pls fix

    I wonder if they can given the length of time it's been an issue.

  • still happening. if you're not going to fix it just change how the achievement triggers because blocking progress is no fun

  • You're telling me. It's been a whole YEAR, and more, and this hasn't been fixed yet? I just wasted about ten HOURS trying to get this spawned. Jesus christ. This is unacceptable.

  • Hello. This is still bugged. Blocking progress on Vision. Showed up to this map every single day for the past two weeks but Pepperseed is never there. Can a GM just complete the achievement for me since it is obviously NOT being worked on?

  • Hi. This is still bugged. As many others have said and experienced, this is blocking my progress toward Vision and I have wasted countless hours trying to complete it when all the prerequisites have been met.

    Event is still bugged as of October 27th 2020 I have been trying to get this event to spawn for days until I realized that its just bugged out completly. Legendary Trinket vision cannot be completed due to this severe bug.

  • The event is still bugged! I've been trying to finish this for the Vision achievement but it's nowhere to be found!
    Please fix this.

  • I did not bother to get into this part of Vision achievement as I am stuck on istan caravans, but +1 - should be fixed even if it's less severe bug that can be done under some circumstances (can it tho?)

    Same issue here, similarly to what is going on in Istan with the Caravan Achivement, the followup event for this (Visions of Action: Thunderhead Peaks - Defend the Zephyrites from the Branded) won't start.
