[Solved] Aether Investigation (broken storyline)


Recommended Posts

Aether Investigation - Help stabilize Bloodtide Coast against the Aetherblade pirates by completing events and finding clues about their hidden base.

There is an event listed about a pending attack, but no orange world map / minimap.   Maybe the event can't start because I already killed everything the areas 😛

Areas:

  1. Killed everything, went around and around, no event, nothing found.
  2. Killed everything, went around and around, no event, nothing found.
  3. Killed everything, went around and around, no event, nothing found.
  4. Found clue, which triggered an event, now area 4 is not marked with the green circle.
  5. Killed everything, went around and around, no event, nothing found.

What in the world is going on?

Here's answer about your first question.

https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Aether_Investigation

Go find and interact with the clues as described in the mail sent to you

Talk to Kiel right next to the transition from Bloodtide Coast to Lion's Arch at https://wiki.guildwars2.com/images/thumb/d/d2/Waypoint_%28map_icon%29.png/20px-Waypoint_%28map_icon%29.png Archen Foreland Waypoint  [&BKMBAAA=]. She will send you a mail indicating five areas on the map to search for Hideout Clues. Assessing the clues will trigger a Kill the Aetherblade lieutenant event. Both interacting with the Hideout Clue and completing its Aetherblade event (including Aetherblade events triggered by other players) will contribute greatly to the progress bar.

Aether Investigation gives you clues, but within the relatively large-ish areas for each item you need to do some searching yourself rather than have a green star point it out.

 

For map meta events like Taidha Covington, if you saw an indicator for the meta but no events, then likely you were on or near her island but it was the lull between the last active event and the next, or she was recently defeated and nothing was happening. There is additional text under the main indicator that will clue you in onto what stage it is on.

 

Seems like some additional reading of the UI beyond the event and quest headings would help you get to what you are looking for...
