  • Not sure if this is related but, I do not receive the "Blood in the Water" daily even after server reset. I got my first free key from Dive Master Asotra in Lion's Arch and then proceed to killing 10 kraits, still no key or any daily popup completed.

    Has this happened to anyone?

    We don't even know if Chests are limited to once per day; only that Chests are limited to once per cycle of 10. I don't think anyone had 11+ Keys stored up before the bug hit to test it.

    I did. I saved 10 keys.. never used any and was able to turn in all 10. Did the same for 2nd time around with 10 keys. on 3rd time around I could only hand in 2. So definitely bugged.

    I noticed that there were some krait that didn't count for me... Not sure if this is the same as what you've experienced. But I have just been going to where the Krait Witch spawns in Kessex to farm Krait there and it started working more consistently for me. Not sure why it didn't count all krait but it works at the Krait Witch.

    We know it's bugged because the Devs have stated it is so.
    Opening a full cycle of chests in one day has not really anything to do with whether one can loot a particular chest more than once per day.

    Literally the quest doesn't appear in my Hero Panel. As far as I can search, I think this is a first

    The daily 'kill 10 krait' is called "Blood in the Water" and it appears in the 'Recently Completed' list in the Summary part of the Achievement panel but only once you've started on it by killing one, you can then mark it for monitoring in the usual way.

    I just did it to check, as I've been confused about this myself before now, after killing one krait it appeared in 'completed' showing 1/10 .. pretty unintuitive IMO.

    That's right. Not all krait count. I've had success farming the ones in the water east of the Kraitbane Haven WP in the northern part of Caledon Forest.

    You are aware it's not called 'Blood in the Water' in the (Daily) Achievement Panel, but 'Sunken Treasure Hunter'?

    Doesn't work still. Killed 10 kraits in 3 different map including Kraitbane WP in Caledon Forest, still no key lol

  • Chests are not resetting for at all. Spent a gold jumping to every chest. They are still open been that way for a week. If you are going to put equipment behind events collection at least make sure the events is fully functional. Sitting on 18 keys so far and the chests are not resetting. Love the game, but hate this event idea. To expensive and bugged to boot. ANET you can do so much better than this.

    Make sure you're looking in the right place. It took me some time to locate it myself. Hero Panel > Achieves > Daily > bottom of the list below even the LS map dailies
    (similar to how the chest achieve is in HP>Ach>General>all the way at the bottom )

    Though that wouldn't explain why killing 10 krait doesn't pop a key for you -- unless you have to do the initial round of 10 chests first? Or at least open one chest first? I don't recall any more whether I got all the chests first before proceeding to krait, but I think I didn't know about the krait one until later so it's likely that's how I did it.

    Strange. The "event" Krait that are part of the Teq event don't count for me, but the normal ones that sometimes wander into the line of fire do. I guess this might be something similar?

    Generally speaking, foes that don't yield loot or XP sometimes don't count for achievements of any sort (weapon mastery, 1000 foe kills, etc.). These are typically foes included for scaling up events or to slow down completion, which is done to give more players a chance to contribute (or return from doing related pre-events). Whatever ANet has done to make them "non loot bearing" appears to frequently affect achievements.

    However, the vast majority of Krait do count: all the ones in NE Caledon, the ones in the Aquatic Fractal, the ones throughout Kryta and Southern Shiverpeaks (including those in/around Blood Witch events).

    This is apparently not bugged for everyone. I check chests at least once a day and every time there's been a Veteran Krait Treasure Hunter or three hanging about, meaning that someone has opened the chest recently, I assume.

    The veterans were shown to respawn independent of anyone opening the chests.

    I did not know that. Thanks.

    But the point that the chests aren't bugged for everyone stands, based on others' observations.

    Anyone else have +15 boosts on their masks?

    I actually have 2 characters with +15's, I was able to complete the achievement twice before it bugged on me, so I got quite a few already. Still tho, I currently have 17 keys I cannot use.

    Well, it's not a consistent thing there, so it probably isn't as simple as the infusions triggering the bug. I did try removing the infusions in all the ascended masks to see if that helps, but no joy there.

    Whatever the bug is, it apparently does something to the chest reset cycle in a way that once triggered, the chests never recycle again for that account. And that made me wonder about something else. While I COULD open them before (and twice in a row at least in the beginning, meaning it didn't get "set" as looted after being opened), once I started on the Diver Master achievement, I didn't go BACK to the chests marked on the achievement panel as opened to see if they had respawned for a new day until their turn came up in the achievement panel again. So it's POSSIBLE they died in turn and didn't all disappear at the same time, with me THINKING they had because none of them were available by the time I ran into the bug.

    This, of course, presumes that the chests all respawn daily (or are supposed to).

    Has anyone else who can still interact with the chests checked this out by going to a chest they looted the day before to see if it's respawned like it should? Maybe not, given that most folks who can still loot the chests with the key don't know there's a bug so won't think to go back to see if their looted chests are gone and don't respawn the next day. But it's worth asking, just in case someone here can do that.

    THAT they disappear for folks is known. Exactly when they do it probably isn't as well noticed.

    I've yet to hit the bug, and I went back to the chest previously opened; it was already opened, which I did not find surprising as I've not finished this particular cycle of 10. We do know you can't open more than 1 chest in the cycle of 10.

  • Chests are bugged for me... Cannot progress at all with this achievement.

    Make sure you're looking in the right place. It took me some time to locate it myself. Hero Panel > Achieves > Daily > bottom of the list below even the LS map dailies
    (similar to how the chest achieve is in HP>Ach>General>all the way at the bottom )

    How do I open the initial round of 10 chests without the daily quest trigger to get those keys? I’ve opened 1 chest using the key given by the NPC in Lion’s Arch, still no daily.

    For everyone else, you would do this to get through the quest:

    1. Visit the person in Lion's Arch, get the first free key.
    2. Complete the daily and get the key.
    3. Extremely rarely get an extra drop from anything at all in the game that you kill.

    Just to be sure: if you open your character panel, open the "daily" section, then scroll right to the bottom, down below the Domain of Istan, and the Sandswept Isles, you don't have a daily section for this?

    If not, do you have any part of the Master Diver achievement completed at all?

    Anyway, if you completed step one, and the daily quest is still not available to you, you should send a ticket to support. This is a different problem to the one this thread is about, and is not the bug that ANet have acknowledged and said they are working on.

    The length of this thread suggests that people do care about it. Some of us are waiting to see the pending fix that ANet mentioned (see above) — if that fixes stuff, then great, problem solved and we'll move on. Meantime, there's little more to say on the topic other than, "hold, please" or "here's a different specific situation that might be helpful in troubleshooting."

    Fair enough. I'm hoping that it does get fixed before I run into the issue myself ;)

    Oh yeah. Even the Krait Witch counts: one day, she happened to be the 10th krait I killed, and completed the Blood In The Water achievement.

    Finally the daily quest appears. Coincidentally, I just hit level 80 before server resets. So I think the pre-requisite for the daily quest to appear is to be Level 80.

  • Inculpatus cedo.9234Inculpatus cedo.9234 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I just checked an alt account, with no characters at L80; the Daily in question does not show up.
    Since characters below L80 can't obtain the Swim Infusions from the chests, it is not surprising.

    Not really. You can watch the Known Issue Tracker, if desired. The fix won't come until the next patch/release, though.

    Risen Krait don't count for the achievement. Every other krait I've killed counts.

    For those doing Tequatl the event to protect the generators that spawns every fifteen minutes makes a ten kill super easy.

    I'm up to stacks of 16 of the keys now, on multiple accounts... I'm using the Captain's Airship Pass and gliding over to the quaggan Mellaggan Shrine, perhaps mining a little iron along the way. Or if it's convenient in world versus world, sometimes I kill ten of the krait there, on the Eternal Battlegrounds next to the hylek village. I wish they respawned all the time, rather than their area being unoccupied for part of the cycle...

    It would be helpful if, when the devs manage to sort their mistake out, we can use all our stack of keys at one chest!

    You don't want to use all your keys at one chest. The achievement for opening all chests is repeatable, and you get 5 +10 swim speed infusions each time you complete the achievement.

  • I’m up to 21 Keys in my char’s hot little hands, waiting to open chests. I guess keep fingers crossed for this Tuesday.

    Those talking about how to farm krait, why not just camp one of the chest locations? I've been in the same spot for nearly 3 weeks, since the chests have been bugged and the veterans spawn really quickly. Often you get to kill 2 or 3 at a time. Normally there are at least 1 or 2 other people to speed things along.

    Very tempted to just keep farming keys even after the chest bug is fixed and wait until I have 90, then rotate around all the chests 9 times! Seems more efficient than jumping location every day.

  • Looked at the date on the first post in this thread. Slowly losing hope.

    I used to do just like you, camping near a sunken chest and waiting kraits to respawn but I'm not doing that anymore.
    I have to thank the guy who said this in this thread (I'm too lazy to search his post), he said that the best method is fractal 7 (acquatic ruins), he's right, there are exactly 10 kraits by the first two cages, without waiting for them to respawn and without fearing that other players kill them before you land a hit, it's incredibly easy and fast.

    I think it is worrysome that Anet needs so long to fix this bug. Are they really holding off with bugfixes for the next content patch now to artifically inflate the patchnotes?

    No news? Can we expect to see the fix in this Tuesday's patch?

    We know from the "Known Bugs" thread that this issue is in "verification", which means they are testing the fix to ensure it works. That gives solid reason to hope it may fold into the next patch release, but no assurance.

    Unfortunately, what argues against that happening is the LS4 E3 release, which is late, and is likely eating a huge amount of time as they hussle to get it out the door ASAP, and so smaller bug fixes may be pushed back until the patch following.

    Personally, I'm on the "please, soon" side, as you might imagine. I'm about 50:50 in terms of expectation, though, based on experience around software release stuff, and observations of past ANet release timing.

    You shouldn't: it is a confirmed bug, and ANet have a fix they are testing to make sure it works for everyone. It isn't the highest priority bug, in part because you are only delayed, not locked out, of the content. It is still being fixed, and will soon™ be released to the world, and working again.

  • And meanwhile the price for swim speed infusions is 20s lower than it was when I encountered the bug the first time... :/

    Why would you do something so foolish? I appreciate it might be frustrating, but in what universe will being angry enough to get a forum warning help improve the situation?

    Just sarcasm, back when there were only books it was easier to recognize. Now on the Inet where everyone can just spout random text and you never know if they are trolling its more difficult. I aprove your positive answer though.
