SUNQUA PEAK FRACTAL LAST BOSS BUG

Any of you guys experienced in the final boss battle when u have to collect a few orbs and then jump up to the clouds to release her from the storm, we do that and from there on it gets bugged and we have to keep doing it over and over any ideas what it might be ?

    We experienced the same thing. It's not that we kept having to do it over and over, but we would complete all the orbs, but the phase would not end, so we were just in a never-ending getting zapped by the storm until we die. Even if we gg'd and tried again, when it got the phase the next time, we completed it, and then it would not progress, no matter how many times we gg'd and retried.

    Another bug happened to my group twice today.
    We got the second storm phase and first fire phase together, needless to say we could not complete both and wiped.

    Just came to add, ran into the bug during t1 Rec today. I believe I saw the last storm cloud disappear as the spellcaster did her charge up attack. Not certain, but it could be something to look into.

  • I hit this bug today, post-patch. The instance bugged out and every time we restarted we would wipe from the issue. We cleared all the storm clouds and the death floor still wiped us after. Hadn't seen it before today.

  • To add, was doing the CM and rev shortbow skill 2 was showing obstructed for most of the hits/projectiles.

  • This issue is still happening after today's patch.

    Example, if the team gets past that point and gets all the clouds and moves to next phase but dies at later phases. Then the issue start to occur after that either after failing the cloud run after that or right from the beginning of re-doing the run.

    What happens is that all the clouds are dispersed, but the big attack still happens and wipes everyone. The red circles also continue striking people indefinitely. So if you survive the big attack, you die to the constantly spawning red circles. Dying and restarting from that checkpoint does not correct the issue.

    The only way is to fix it is to restart the fractal from beginning (going back to the Dessa's lab and starting from scratch). Happened to my group several times today. Hope ArenaNet team is continuing to look into it!

    Little word not only about bugged boss, but also about instabilities today for this fractal.
    We have Harmstrung in fractal with final boss fight where you need mobility, faster you collect charges and jump into cloud less chance for wipes.
    We have Stick Together in fractal with boss fight where we need to spread not only to disable boss' massive attack but also to speard against AOE attack we can't even dodge.
    Today's Sunqua Peak is impossible.

    Another bug we ran into today for the second time. Our healer lagged out and when she returned all the other players were rubberbanding around and bashing into walls on her screen. She could see boss animations and attacks very well but couldn't heal us since she couldn't know where we really were. The bug fixed itself once we restarted fractal but yeah come on. Does this mean every time we have someone who lags out and returns we need to restart fractal??
    I ran into this bug too when I swapped toons once in this fractal and returned.
    I also ran into the bug posted by OP in t3 rec today so this fractal has at least 2 bugs I ran into on same day.

    A bug, that supposedly was fixed yesterday, occurred to my party today.
    She simply wouldn't stop hovering inside her tornado, making it literally impossible to even try to beat her.

  • Several bugs associated with this, and I'm not sure what was intended or not. So firstly, obviously, the attack still happening after the storms get dispersed is obviously a bug. But are you supposed to be able to evade the attack? I was able to twice, but everyone else had wiped at that point so there was no point in continuing. Also someone mention rev shortbow 2 - yea, that is incapable of hitting when she's in the middle. It hits when she's on the outside of the arena though. Considering the history of that skill, can't say I'm surprised but it doesn't help during the mechanics where you're required to spread out.

  • Kichwas.7152Kichwas.7152 Member ✭✭✭

    I've seen this glitch also in one run.

    So it is a known bug. Good to know.

    If you get stuck in it, you're run is lost. We wiped and tried again, I think 3 or 4 times - and once it glitches at that spot it seems to always glitch at that spot until you just break up your group, leaves fractals, and come back later.

    Just say no to butt-flaps.

    The minimap for the final boss area isn't synchronized correctly as well. Its fine until around the part where players go pass the floating rocks/pass the portal Rp for the convo to end, nearby the graves. Edge of the map(?).

  • Zaxares.5419Zaxares.5419 Member ✭✭✭

    Yeah, just chiming in to report this bug as well. It seems that if you fail to defeat the last boss in a single go, the bug where she never comes out of her Whirlwind Shield (during the phase where you need to clear stormclouds) ALWAYS occurs, so if you fail even once, you have to return to the Mistlock and start the entire fractal all over again. Perhaps less of an issue for CM runs (where the Challenge Mote takes you straight to the last boss), but it's extremely frustrating in NM to have to do the entire fractal with all of its sub-bosses all over again. I actually recommend people not do 100 until this bug is fixed.

    I'm also not sure if this is an issue specific to players from high-ping regions (like SEA and OCX), but yesterday we were also having a lot more trouble passing the Tidal Burden tether to each other. It feels like the tether check was a lot more generous in the past, but now it's a lot more focused on making sure that players actually obstruct the tether. This is a problem for high-ping players because due to our ping, the server often thinks we're not ACTUALLY where our screens are showing us to be, resulting in us having to move around a LOT more in order to make sure the tether is passed (and it also makes it way harder for people to get the Shared Burden achieve if they haven't got it already.)

  • Eramonster.2718Eramonster.2718 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Second Zaxares.5419 as well. Haven't encounter any bugs in CM, so far. Aside from the need to adjust the minimap for marking(personal waypoint) at start before starting the final boss occasionally, but the minimap will auto re-adjust when the encounter starts.

    Had some bug with Sunqua normal or T3 recs yesterday, couldn't remember which. Had some aoe effects persisting after everyone /gg. Got it fixed by having everyone /gg again and make sure the skills ended and boss reseted before everyone resurrects.

  • I thought it would occur once you wipe once on her - but yersterday, after SEVERAL tries... a wipe didn't let the bug occur.
    I was kinda out of time and didn't want to start over, so I asked the party just to check and if it's bugged, I leave.

  • YtseJam.9784YtseJam.9784 Member ✭✭✭

    it still happens. it seems to be related to someone swapping toons after wiping/gging after this part is completed at least once.

  • This happened to us on the first day of the fractal rush - the storm phase would not end even when the clouds were all dispersed. Was just showing some friends through on T1. Some info that might help: we started with 4 players and had a fifth join just before the last boss. Someone pulled on accident because they thought they could get close to the boss due to her being marked non-aggro, and we /gg'd that run since the fifth player hadn't gotten into the fractal yet. We tried /gg'ing several times to fix the issue but despite the fight being reset, she would not progress past the storm phase.

    Also had a friend experience this the other day on scale 100 but don't have the details of their run. I just know I'm not really interested in running the fractal any more until I hear this is fixed, which is a shame because it's beautiful and I have several friends that haven't beaten it yet. Managed to beat it on my EU account, but not on my NA (main) account yet, due to bugs, which is frustrating to say the least.

  • We've just pushed out a fix for this issue. Please let us know if it still occurs.

  • Still happens.

  • Still happening. Just did it to my group.

  • still bugged

  • yep bugged broken cannot even respawn and try again effin stupid fractals

  • It's bugged in CM aswell. Anet should really look carefully into fixing this fractal, both its bugs and its balance.

  • Hi Anet, the bug still occurs, happened 5 times for my team, we've waster 1h of gameplay.

  • Still happening on Daily

  • Zaxares.5419Zaxares.5419 Member ✭✭✭

    Still happening, yep. Just happened to my group.

  • Fueki.4753Fueki.4753 Member ✭✭✭✭

    It happened today for me again.

    As long this continues to happen, this fractal is not worth doing.

  • Yeah I was also in a group today where we had to restart the fractal 4 times and eventually gave up. Not worth the effort if this keeps happening. And always at the same place, where she goes up in her swirly thing where you have o collect crystals and jump up at the arrows. Would be a great addition to fractals if only it worked properly.

  • Happened twice to me today. I made some friends buy the expansions and this is what they experience now., bug after bug in fractals.. I mean the bug has obviously been known for a while, yet no fix? PLEASE, care about your community.

  • Happened about a minute ago. Still happenign :(

    Still happening, just happened couple minutes ago, issue was not fixed on wipe. Had to leave and restart the entire instance to fix.

    The most Frustrating Fractal

  • It happened to my group as well last night.

  • Yep, still happening.
    Would be nice if you could skip the "trash" when repeating due to that bug. The most annoying thing is the ~7-9 minutes of "waiting time" to get to the boss.

  • Cyninja.2954Cyninja.2954 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Is this only normal mode related, or have players encountered this in CM as well?

    Might be good to narrow this down if there is a difference here.

    Encountered this bug again today. Impossible to advance after the bug strikes, only option is to restart the entire fractal. How is this still not fixed? How did it even get past playtesting for that matter?

    I doubt there has been any play-testing before it went live.

  • Nephalem.8921Nephalem.8921 Member ✭✭✭✭

    It should be still possible to advance if bug occurs if you skip the air phase. Does bug out in cm aswell. They also bugged artsariiv aswell with the last patch. 2nd cc phase instantly completes.

    Cameron, I’m not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but in my experience with the bug, it happens when my party is at the water phase, and then the party wipes out. Upon restart we cannot complete the disperse cloud phase. This happened very first day the fractal came out to me, and then just the other day. It has to do with getting killed at the water phase. I have not gotten wiped in other phases to test that out, though.

    Came here to say the same, the bug happened to me every time I wiped at the water phase. Don't think I've wiped at the fire phase to know if it's only related to the water one or to any phase after the air one, but I hope this input helps somehow.

  • Kichwas.7152Kichwas.7152 Member ✭✭✭

    @Dark Red Killian.3946 and @Tesche.5423 I think you two are on to something. For me it seems we can wipe at any stage (and I've been in enough PUGs to have seen a wipe in most of the phases) but the water stage and be fine. Go down during water though, and it glitches and can't be rerun without leaving.

    I've yet to have a group try to rerun it from the start. PUGs just break up when it glitches...

    Just say no to butt-flaps.
