The Juggernaut III: The Colossus - Experimental Ooze

Hi, I just want to ask if anyone is also encountering the same problem? (NA server)

I need the event "Destroy the Risen broodmother to free Rakkan" in order to purchase the item (Experimental Remnant) I need to continue on to the quest but I've been stuck for more than a week because the event won't trigger. I have also send a bug report in-game after 2 days of waiting. The Skritt NPC Rakkan is near the R&D Waypoint in Cursed Shore.

I'm also checking the Known Issue Tracker daily but there's a notice of undergoing maintenance. It's also listed there with the status "In Progress" .

I was actually hoping that maybe it'll get fixed once the Wintersday Event patch came but sadly it wasn't. Hoping to get an update regarding this matter.

Thank you.

  • Same. I have waited there for months. Hope it get fixed.

  • Your best bet is to try immediately after any release or patch when all maps (and events) are reset.

    Good luck.

    So this is not only me. I submitted a ticket but I think I will post here also.

    Note
    After doing some research I found that they know are working on that issue which can be seen here.
    https://help.guildwars2.com/hc/en-us/articles/231272908-Known-Issue-Tracker

    Keep your eyes open. They do listen, things take time and they have limited personnel for such things. So lets hope its completed soon.

  • This is really disappointing that a bug like this would be allowed to persist for this long, considering it's something necessary for a collection.

  • I'm seeing the same problem, been visiting Cursed Shore for three days looking for this event to start.

  • I had been waiting for almost 2 hours today when I got the message that the map was going to close in an hour. I switched to the other map and the event chain was active there. So a new map instance does seem to activate the event. Going there on patch day would be a good solution then, since waiting for a map to close could take hours.

    Bump; I've only seen this event happen once ever and it still doesn't seem to occur.

    Tried going to the event after the update came out but no dice. After completing the event, there's Scholar Merla saying 'Here goes nothing. Wow, whew, that's ripe!'" but then the next event never actually starts; the skritt and the asura just hold bundle items forever.

    Bug has been in-game for at least 3 years :(

    Bump. Still under known issue. Anet progress is plz

  • Still a problem. Blocking progress for the Colossus.

  • The issue continues. Can't complete Juggernaut III: the Colossus achievement.

  • TPMN.1483TPMN.1483 Member ✭✭✭

    Try getting them killed - sometimes it then works and resets progress.

  • Any updates? I cannot complete the Jugg 3 >,<
    If only I knew that there was a bugged I should bought the Colossus on TP. tsk

  • Still a problem as of June 2020. :astonished:

  • Further to this, the Wiki page for the Champion Risen Broodmother shows it spawning in the water, west of Meddler's Waypoint. This is incorrect! Rakkan collects the fish carcass glands (or whatever they are called) northwest of R&D - then you escort him back to R&D - then to the drake area north of there. NOW, you can kill the Broodmother and return to R&D to buy the potion from him. Double-click your ooze to make it consume the potion.

  • Same boat as ya'll. Event won't trigger, so I can't complete the Colossus collection.

  • I just finished completing the "Help Rakkan collect Risen fish oil glands for Merla" event and I would have expected to continue with the next event "Accompany Rakkan as he tests Merla's undead camouflage potion" with the hope that I will be able to complete the series of events and to be able to purchase the necessary item for the achievement. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Rakkan disappeared after the "Help Rakkan collect Risen fish oil glands for Merla" event, and then magically reappeared in its stationary place, that is "Equipment Repairs". This situation is worse than when no event starts. :s

  • Today, after the update for the new event, I was finally able to participate in the last event in order to be able to buy the necessary item. The bug remains and I think it is not fair to have to wait for an update or simply enter a map without this bug in order to complete the achievement. The problem is there and remains, unfortunately. The solution must be found, in any case.

    Hello sorry. I was on a break from the game mainly because of my frustration on this back in December 2019. Sadly, I was unable to log immediately after the new update came. I just logged and camp for a few to see if the event will happen.

  • Myke.9826Myke.9826 Member ✭✭

    So yeah after taking a long break from the game, checked back again and to my surprise it's still bugged - 6 months and counting at least on my experience. I don't like it that me and other future players who will also do this collection will have to rely on day after an update hoping the event will work or hoping that another IP for the map will pop-up knowing that Cursed Shore is not as populated as before. I also submitted a ticket but no one is replying to my query. This is just frustrating. Is there anyway to bump up this post so that at least one staff member will notice this?

  • The Rakkan events still bugged ... so my juggernaut part 3 progress got stopped, ... its been a week .. that everyday i check on that rakkan .. but its still bugged ... no Rakkan event came up .. plz fix it

    IKR. Haven't had the chance to see that event progressed since December of 2019. Try sending a ticket and also report the bug in-game. Just a heads up though, I've also sent a ticket 5 days ago and no one in the support team have contacted me since.

  • I'm on the same kitten step and I just can't fathom how they haven't just put a replacement vendor somewhere on the map for it yet. If it's been this buggy for over three years, then have an Npc on standby to ensure that people can actually complete the collection. Put the replacement where the vista is in the jumping puzzle at the bottom for all I care, but just give us a way to make sure we can get the kitten food if the event won't start.

  • Still bugged. I've stood around for hours waiting, trying to complete other nearby event chains....nothing. Can't even kill the NPCs (which I read above) because there aren't enough mobs to pull into the camp.

    It's just totally broken. And trying right after a patch isn't going to work for me as I'm never on around those times. Fix this please!

  • ash.1647ash.1647 Member ✭✭

    Same issue; trying different instances when available - no joy. Posting as suggested by Devs rather than making a new thread.
    I'll keep trying on patch day :) GL all.

  • Myke.9826Myke.9826 Member ✭✭

    So a few updates:
    First, I've received the answer to my ticket regarding this issue. Said they can't force the event to start nor provide the needed item for the collection. Suggesting that I should go in different IP of Cursed Shore or try on daily reset. That's all they said regarding this

    Second, A fellow player who was also waiting for this event message me about a month ago that "there was an ANet staff investigating the event. He said, should be able to finish the collection by the next patch." So I logged back hoping that the event is now working, but yeah it's still bugged.

    Want to repeat that the suggestion about logging in as soon as a new patch is live is not doable for everyone(at least I think) and the switching over to different IP is not really easy to do because of the mega server and Cursed Shore isn't as populated like it was before. So yeah, just want to update y'all.

    Yeah I second this. I remember a collection I did back then where I just bought the item from an NPC needed for the collection without doing the chain events. Why can't they just implement this.

  • Myke.9826Myke.9826 Member ✭✭

    Update: I was able to do the event after this small patch. I also tried camping and it seems the rid the pact camp of tar elementals are also happening constantly now on R&D Waypoint. The IP I was able to do this event is (3.211.101.69) Hope this help y'all doing this collection as well.

  • still bugged for me

    I contacted support about this on Thursday, got a response Saturday and was told "use a wiki to help you with the collection." well can't really do anything if the thing is still bugged., So now support are refusing to help me.

  • Zhaid Zhem.6508Zhaid Zhem.6508 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Still bugged.

  • Ubi.4136Ubi.4136 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I'm not on this step yet, but this thread is really depressing. Basically finding out that I can't complete this legendary, and that, after almost a year, Anet still hasn't fixed the bug.

    Lost in the Maguuma (TC)
    For the geographically challenged, yes, Tarnished Coast is located IN the Maguuma Jungle.

  • it is still bugged tried it for 2 days now.

  • Still bugged

  • bugged still.

  • Oh my, I can't believe that this is still bugged. I guess the really work around for now is to camp that area and wait until a new update or patch is released.
    Though I did remember the day that I got that collection done (last post - July 30, 2020), stayed there for a couple of hours and the event did occur a couple of times.

  • So, for those who still need this. I can document what we did. No idea what worked but here is it all.
    New instance failure:
    1. we found a new instance and the fish remnants was open. we completed it and it went well
    2. he started the conversation
    3. and then stopped and did nothing :(

    New instance after patch:
    He started out by standing next to merla holding his box.
    Then:
    1. tar elementals event
    2. attempted to get him killed
    3. started event
    4. Fish carcasses twice
    5. handed it in at the same time
    6. removed all the carcasses again before the time was up for extra's
    7. left him to die again on the way back (didn't work he is invincible)
    8. kept talking to him and Merla.
    9. Spam talked to both with all kind of responses
    10. kept trying to give buffs
    11. then suddenly he left for the drakes.
    12. and he was buffable again and all went well!

    Sooo, the new patch or new instance is needed to start the one but then its not a given either. Good luck to all.
    PS. wen all purchased one even when we are not working on it just in case :)

  • up until today, it is still a problem. I have been at he location of the event for like hours for the past few days. wondering why the events chain has not triggered.
    i was just curious to check if there was bug and found this thread. Uhhhh, the problem was experienced in years. :(
    i hope it gets fixed. thanks.

  • I dont even want to fully make Juggernaut, but just make the ooze gizmo, this is the only thing stopping me :( (still buggeronied)

  • Still bugged a year later ! :)

  • Open a ticket.
