Neureni Ceremonial Mask 500g
« on: February 16, 2022, 10:46:48 PM »
There are times where this bounty appears to be bugged. I can not say with 100% confidence, but id push to 99% confidence.

The bounty for this item will be posted on the bounty board.
However when you go look for it in the tunnels, its not to be found.
And then upon returning to the bounty board, it is still listed there. (however could be one of the other two spawning)
But given the time frames of searching for the masks and returning to the board, it seems too quick for them to spawn.

And I'm pretty good about checking all of the rubble/debris/rocks.
===
In my lastest search, I failed to find 2 masks. And return to the board and there are still 2 masks listed.

sorry for assuming you might or might not know something from your post history, but I want to be sure you are aware the neureni bountied items can possibly spawn on 4-5 different locations and not just one.

I checked the scripts and they work fine so this is the most likely cause. They can spawn in 4 different tunnel areas.

I'm still disagreeing.
Two 500g masks posted.
Ran through the tunnels from below Vallaki down to the Tunnel system that leads into Dvergeheim's mines.
Was a total of 5 Areas searched. 
1. Area beneath Vallaki
2. Area south of (1) which connects to the Bear Cave
3. Area south of (2) which has the "mushroom forest"
4. Area south of (3) which has tunnel shakes checks, a mine cart, rails for said cart.
5. The last area, the tunnel system with exits leading towards Alhoon/Shadow Dragon, Dvergeheim Mines, and the prior tunnel leading back to Vallaki.

And during this search, a gathering of other players had gone through here before me killing everything in sight and looting.
So I ran all the way back through these tunnels going north to prevent these areas from resetting.
I get back to the bounty board and STILL, there are 2 masks listed 500g.

The only possible error on my part could be a mask hidden within a default locked wooden chest spawn near the "creepers" in area 5.
But I believe area 5 never contains these mask bounties.

Perhaps there is some code beyond just the script for placing the items that is not functioning right?
Is the bounty board incorrectly reporting mask spawns? Is it not removing them when found?

Sounds like the other PCs looted the masks but hadn't turned them in yet?

Once a bounty is picked up from spawning container, it vanishes off the board. At least that is the behavior of every other bounty.

Which location does it specify in the bounty listing? Under the Market District?

Can you provide the full names of these areas? These are very vague references which aren't helpful with debugging.

I will identify them next time I go through.

I will also note this is behavior I had observed last year, irrelevant to the recent changes on bounties.
After a server reset, often the 500g neureni mask bounties work correctly.
But perhaps a few days later, one or two or more eventually stop showing up in the loot and they are ALWAYS on the board. (as if nobody has ever found all of them)

On my next trip, 3 masks were listed prior. (assuming 2 of these are bugged) I found 1 mask.

3 masks listed


Area 1


Area 2


Area 3 - I found one mask in here.


Area 4


Area 5 (I do not believe masks spawn here)


And returning to a bounty board, there are 2 masks listed

That doesn't answer my question. When you open the listing, what location does it specify? Neureni items can be under the sewers, or they can be in the Neureni tomb in the Ghakis.

The one in the tomb are worth 1.000g.

tbh, i was responding to EO
Again I've been referring to the 500g masks. NOT the 1000g.

500g masks are found in the tunnels beneath vallaki ranging below dvergeheim
1000g masks are found in the tomb guarded by invidian soldiers.

I believe EO needs you to tell the content of the bounty, where the item is supposed to be found (ie tunnels under the market district or smt like that)

I've double checked and nothing seems wrong in the set up. Keep in mind these relics respawn quite fast, so it's possible someone found them, then they respawned. Also, they only spawn in a total of 4 areas (3 if you exclude the one in the Barrows) whereas you're searching in 5.

I mean, would it be possible to just have a DM or admin run through those caves at the current server's live session? - BEFORE it resets.
You likely will find two masks missing where you would expect to find them.
The 500g masks.

And use teleporting to get back to the board ASAP preventing area reset/mask respawn.

Like I just found undeniable evidence its broken.
3 of the 500g masks on the board.
I zoom over to the bear cave and enter Area (2) where masks are KNOWN to spawn, therefore it is one of the 3 locations you imply they spawn.
Given I zoom over in 2 minutes, if someone picks it up, there is still a 13 minute window to get there.
When I entered Area 2, there were NO loot nodes available. Completely empty map except for herbs and bats.
I enter Area 1(known to spawn a mask) and search, find nothing.
I zoom back through Area 1 and 2 (preventing reset) and check the board which takes about 2 minutes to get back.
Still all 3 masks listed.
Given 3 masks spawn, Area 1 and Area 2 should have by default one mask, but they did not.

And this is under the assumption from what you said, the 3 500g masks, spawn in one of three areas.

I strongly encourage any naysayers to provide counter evidence by running through the caves and finding more than 1 mask in a single search of all the areas, as of the current live session.

Once a reset occurs, this will not be the case for a while.


EDIT: Server has reset so will update this thread the next time I ever get around to checking the masks.
