    The Medical Aid Recording wastes one of your Recording Devices each time you rezzed 10 people. Huge and unacceptable bug!

    Guess I have to stop rezzing people until I finished this collection, wich can take a while with the zephyrite event bugged

  • One???
    I have wasted THREE of the Recording Devices.
    I do not understand why I can not deliver the completed events. then there would be no problem with wasted recording devices. meanwhile I have 15 events in my inventory

  • I have the opposite problem. I can't get this at all, and I have revived far more than 10 with a recorder in my inventory.

    Yes, this whole collection is poorly done. You waste hours for waiting for boring trivial events that are done in no time. Only organising Serpents Ire was fun. Too bad that event lacks any unique rewards.

    You waste one recording device per 10 rezzes btw

    you have to turn in all the rescue before you can turn in all of some other category

    We know, but some events bug frequently.

    I am so angry right now. This stupid bug just wasted my last recording event during an annoying event I had to do for this collection. Even if you turned in this recording already you can get it again and again.

    Really great. I went to buy a new recording and the first person I rezzed wasted another recording. So it appears it is RNG and not 10 people :(

    Great, hope you will refund us all the Diflourite Crystals we wasted
    EDIT: It just wasted another recording device, just after I rezzed a single person again.
    I wonder if you get multiple recordings from redoing events also.

    I was finally able to get it - on the character who initially bought the recorder, whereas previously I was working with a shared slot. Can't be bothered to test it further, mostly since I don't want to waste recorders.

  • For players unable to gain the item who have revived more than 10 people while the recorder is in your inventory:

    We are investigating a fix for this. Currently the Medical Aid Recording is given to players who have an invisible buff applied to them when they purchase the Recording Device from the vendor. It only applies to the character that purchased the item currently. Until we have a fix, you can either:

    (1) Use the character you purchased the item on to revive allies to get the item.
    (2) Purchase a Recording Device with the character you want to use for reviving players to get the Medical Aid Recording so that character has the buff the game is looking for.

    Thank you for your patience everyone!

    I found another bug with the Medical Aid Recording. I finished the collection and still get these recordings despite having no recorders in inventory.

    Thanks for the heads-up. In addition to the Medical Aid bug you guys might also want to look into an event that's also a requirement for this collection.
    The event is called "Rescue refugees forced into labor in the Zephyrite mine" at Glint’s Legacy in Crystal Oasis and is frequently bugged; often stopping at 0/6 or 5/6 with no way to continue until you are lucky to find a map with the event not bugging out. It seems the npc's have issues either spawning in properly causing the event to stall indefinitely or not registering when rescued.

    EDIT: Finally found an unbugged event and started rescuing the refugees. Event completed but I received NO recording because the game decided to give me yet ANOTHER Medical Aid recording (up to 3 now!!!) somehow even though I DID NOT revive anyone at all (I even stopped reviving the lone downed refugee so another player could get credit)! THIS SUCKS as I now have to go buy even more recorders because the game keeps giving me these stupid medical recordings even when I'm not even reviving anyone. And now I have to find yet another 'Rescue Refugee' event that won't bug out on me just so I can finally get my inventory space back!!!

    And all that for just another stupid ascended backpack while I still have tons of unused ascended backpacks in my bank already.

    Seriously, please fix this issue as I tried to be polite but this is getting annoying now. Thank you.

    Upon further examination of my and my wife's toons inventories we both appear to have this recording so my previous post was erroneous to say the least.. My apologies.

    It works, just go WvW with it, easy done. I even got it in fractals 2nd time accidentally with recording device... I am pretty sure it is downed players, not dead ones though, because no way I ressed 10 fully dead ones. While waiting for fishing event :disappointed:

    Errr... wasn't that the one for which you need to heal the wounded in the Temple of Kormir northeast of Amnoon?

    no it just say revive 10 alies

  • Are you sure you don't have the recording in your inventory ? Sometimes you don't have any information if you get the item.

  • Belishine.7493Belishine.7493 Member ✭✭✭

    yes im shure of it and it still wont give it to me

  • Sneakr.3679Sneakr.3679 Member ✭✭

    I'm having exactly the same problem. We tried resing npc's in destiny gorge and no luck then we tried (in a party of 3) dying and resing and then jumping off cliffs to die and res and when that still didn't work I did the whole mordremoth event in a squad resing everyone I could in dragons stand and this has to be fixed!!

    Same here. I keep getting recordings in my inventory after ressing people without carrying recording devices in inventory, and the collection is already completed.

  • Sneakr.3679Sneakr.3679 Member ✭✭

    I have been trying to get the medical aid recording on the same toon that purchased the recorders and still no luck

  • Sneakr.3679Sneakr.3679 Member ✭✭

    I'm still tryin to get this recording, any tips? I am doing the revives on the same toon who bought the recording devices and did the backpack and story.

  • Me too! Can't get medical aid recoding i tried both players and npcs.

  • Urud.4925Urud.4925 Member ✭✭✭

    I completed it ressing 10 players (no NPC) during the Serpent Ire meta, while in party with them. It says "ally", so maybe it's easier if you ress someone in your group. No idea though, in theory it should work also with NPCs.

  • Belishine.7493Belishine.7493 Member ✭✭✭

    anet is working on a hot fix for this one right now and if you need the fishing one they trying to fix that one too

  • This was three threads. Now it's one. I am posting because the "ArenaNet Flag" disappeared and I want it to be clear that there was a response to this concern within one of the three merged threads.

  • I knew about this bug, but figured I would be safe if my recording equipment was stored in the bank rather than in inventory.

    Guess again. I revived an NPC during an escort event, and now have another medical aid recording.

    I hope that an option will be added to the vendor that lets people sell back these recordings for the diflorite or at least new recorders.

    did it actualy eat a recording device since you dident have it in inventory?

    To be honest, I am not certain exactly how many I had. Have been trying to recreate the problem, but it has not been giving me more. Maybe one somehow started 'recording' before I banked it, and that's why it still gave me a recording..

  • I have ressed so many people. Way over 20, and 17 npc's and I cannot for the life of me get the medical aid recording. What is happening.

  • medical aid recording is bugged , revive more than 20 dead npcs and no recording , plz fix this T_T

  • Kron.6938Kron.6938 Member ✭✭

    Tried dying 10 times to test this for the recording collection - it does not award the recording - and if it was for downed players - it still doesn't since I play a lot of WvW. This bug is upsetting to say the least.

  • Zaxares.5419Zaxares.5419 Member ✭✭✭

    I just tested this today. It DOES work, but pay attention to Dara Potocska's post above: You MUST revive the allies (both NPCs and other players work) on a character who has purchased a Recording Device from Researcher Thale. Apparently doing so gives the character an invisible buff that allows you to get credit towards the item. If you bought all the recordings on one character, then gave it to another character who has not purchased the device, you will NEVER get the recording.
