Old Friends breaking net connection


Recommended Posts

The "Old Friends" story mission keeps breaking down the net connection and resetting to the first jumps in the Mists. It happens after crashing with the final vessel and waking up on the beach. ;/

Haven't managed to leap that far; it seems to be stuck. Otoh, it could be server lag causing all the issues. Entire update is downloaded, and that cured most of my issues with Prismatic Leap, but the Mission seems stuck and it's not allowing progress. This  mission needed better testing; we don't all live within 50 milliseconds of the server. But, thanks for the warning.

Yeah same issues here. Can't progress past this story. Tried it on several characters several times, and nothing. Always disconnects right after the cutscene where you wash up on the beach.

Had no issue with this on launch day. Was able to get my Ranger through just fine. But trying this today, and now I can't progress past this point with any character. Was playing with guildmates as well and they are all crashing at the same part too. None of us can progress past that cutscene.

Still happening at 11:00pm EST March 3. 😞

The cutscene for the beach starts to play and then dc.

It's unskippable...

ETA: First character on Monday worked fine, this was my second character attempt. It took 3 tries and then it finally went. Then the achievement for letting myself out of the cell didn't register.

Having the first quest to travel to cantha breaking and DC after a cutscene is one of the worst scenarios for an expansion launch.

This should be fixed within hours and its taking several days .... anyone reading anything? any communications? any workarounds?

I'm having the same issue.  Tried on 2 different computers and it aways crashed at the exact same place.  Tried 5 times solo and 1 time joing someone elses story.  They went through but my story crashed at the exact same place as normal.  I have already done this on my main on the day of the release but would like to do the story of the alt character but unable to do this without this issue been fixed.

Tried this today with a friend and we're both continuously getting kicked at the cut scene. So annoying that we can't even get into the new areas, would hope a bug like this would be fixed already? I also tried solo a couple of times and still no luck.

old friends is still bugged btw, i tried completing the instance 5 times in a row, keep getting sent back to the login screen after the cutscene where you wash up on the beach. 11 days since this thread is up and the very first instance that lets you get into the new expac is still not fixed? good job.

edit: after spamming the instance over and over i eventually got in by some miracle

Trying to get another character through and the same thing is still happening. This is really annoying/time wasting! I know that techincally I can make my alts the jade bot things, but that's not the point. I'm trying to get other characters through to be able to work on spec collections and mapping and all those other things.

The part that is really annoying is that you basically have to replay the entire Old Friends jumping across most of the ships to wait on a cutscene that probably will end up kicking you again....

Change content streaming option under game settings if not max set it to that.

If on max try one of the other ones.

Linken.6345Streaming is set to max. Believe me I have tried changing so many settings and things not just on the pc but with the connection and provider... Story drops in this game always happen in very specific instances in level 80 personal story and this one story mission. 😞 It's just extremely frustrating and I've wasted hours using all the suggestions when it's not something on my end.

Inculpatus cedo.9234To get the jade cores for the bots and do story you need to get past that story step. It's not just about getting to the maps, it's about being able to complete the story.

It is May the 5th and I cannot get my main through either.  I'm having the same issues that everyone else has had on this thread where my character is found on the beach by some guy and then I disconnect immediately, over and over.
