I'm not quite sure why some weapons dont even have an EGO rating attached to them? Secondly, it seems legendary weapons are extremely rare and I never remember looting one, BUT i have a legendary shotgun (EGO rating 104). Only thing I can think of is I came in 1st on the two minor arkfalls I did. Not sure if these ever award weapons though.

Firstly the ones without ratings are from some quest rewards, do you have the achievement for finding a legendary item? If not then it came from a lockbox as thats where mine came from and no achievement for me, must be properly looted

I second this, im ok with minor ones but major ones are just awful, i honestly dont see how they can fix this either as it purely down to there being too many people in 1 place shooting

It will get fixed, eventually. The game is 2 days old and Trion has done a good job so far of taking care of issues. I figure the game will be in proper working form within a week or two.

I have plenty of other things to hold me over until then. I just want to have a solid grasp on how to play an MMO before Dead Island Riptide is released; once that happens, my gaming time will be dedicated to that.

How do you know if it's a major arkfall? Is it the ones where there are five ark falls in one area? Cause I've done two of those and haven't gotten any rewards.

Yeah on the map you have a big red circle and five small arkfalls inside it. Once they are all complete i believe there is a final one which has the big red worm tower thing and once that one's complete you'll be rewarded and it will tell you what you got and your stats

Edit: I don't think you get an item like loot but you will gain a set amount of xp, script and so.

I'm so pumped to get home from work and play this for a few hours! I havent been this giddy to play a game in some time now.

Bad news: It's only 10:22 am EST. Have to be in my office until 4pm

Ah. Thanks.

So, I'm having an issue with the quest Old Friends, Old (insert word I don't remember). It tells me to enter the guy's garage and whene I do nothing happens. Besides the lag, this is the only thing that stops me from continuing the game.

I've had several similar issues when doing a quests that required me to turn on some beacons and generators. The only thing that i noticed was it always happened when there was someone elso on the same quest but a fews steps ahead of me. Like i turned up to one beacon and there wasn't an enemy in sight and the game would not let me turn the beacon on until it had loaded in some enemies for me to kill. I had to leave the yellow area for them to spawn.

When this kind of thing happens i just fill out one of those feedback forms and hope someone reads it and deals with it the best they can.

One thing that I've found annoying so far is the lack of location names on the map.

I was trying to do the Truth behind Tranquility pursuit last night I can't remember where any of the locations for the intel are

I agree with Sir Ciety on the lack of place names on the map. It makes remembering where things/places are quite a skill at times, particularly for things like finding the data recorders.

My other bug bear is when the game forces you to go single player on a number of main missions and the episode missions. Why advertise as a MMO with 2 -10000+ players for co-op and then force you to split up?

Just wondering, did anyone here make a group for NA players? Cause I'm tired of doing some missions by myself. Those damn 99ers are the worst.

I imagine this is to stop people earlier in the game from playing missions they havn't already unlocked themselves

I don't like the collecting the recordings bullshit. In a world this big those things are damn near impossible to find. So that makes it almost impossible to finish the area-related pursuits until somebody comes out with a guide.

Oh and the lag.

I remember seeing a picture of the map during beta and someone marked all the locations of the recording. It's in one of the old threads.

The biggest issue I have with all the downtime is that I spent bits (real money) to acquire double xp boosts that only last 24 hours and the server has been down for over half that within the last day. Trion should acknowledge there are issues and at least hook everyone up with 500-1000 bits or 24-48 hour double xp/script. I don't think that is asking a lot but what do I know :

Lag hasnt been too much of an issue. Me and my son expierienced the "glitch" of achievements not unlocking in the co-op map. Then he was on a main story mission that wouldnt complete.

Since then IF I fast travel to a location I see no purple dots (other players) on screen. I cannot summon my vehicle. I activate no bound point. and I cannot accept missions. IF I transport to a friend I have to physically travel to anything Id like to start mission wise.

Now the big kick in the nuts. I was EGO 299 and just completed Act 3. My Characters are GONE. I have logged out correctly everytime Ive exited the game. Gone to main menu and then dashboarded. I have waited over 2 hrs logging in and off and nothing.

I started a new character with no problems so far. Only thing Im really pissed off is the 2 lock boxes, preordering from Gamestop and Ultimate ed, I can no longer redeem. Everthing from the Arkhunter training is there.

Im finding the Time Trials to be ridiculous. I was getting Silver on them before I even knew there was a Boost button! But even with that I have crossed the finish line at gold time and the lag adds a second to it. Or when I try to restart, the countdown will begin and Im not even on a goddam vehicle. You know its hard when the leaderboard is topped by people only 1 second under gold time.

And I cant wait to see the ridiculous lag this Friday night...

Yeah but that was probably just for Mount Tam. I have the recordings for that and Madera because someone published a guide for those, but not the other two (and obviously not San Francisco).
