    I ran into some problems with part 3 of the Abyss quest and was wondering if anyone else had these things happen.

    1. I have a lantern that Geoffry doesn't recognize. I have tried it on 4 chars on two accounts and it just doesn't work. If I use another lantern everything is fine. And yes, it says Lamp of Spirituality.

    2. One of my human chars completed the quest and could not open the chest for the reward. It said the chest was locked. (I've done the chest thing about 70 times so I know I did it right.)

    3. When I take my gargoyle to the "house" spot whatever lantern she's holding will not change color and remains purple. If I try to target it with the ink it says the object is not valid. I've tried different lanterns and no luck.

    #3 really irritates me as it's the only gargoyle I have and was hoping to get the wings. :(

    I did try to page a gm on #3 ... got a canned response. I'm going to submit these as bugs but I just wanted to see if anyone else is having similar problems.

    What is the email address for the bug tracker? I found one too (but with a Heartwood crafting quest).

    As far as I know, the lanterns aren't transferable. You must keep the same lantern as the character received from the part one quest.
    If you have a spare cloak from the human version, that can be altered by a tailor.

    1. You have to use the lantern that the character actually earned from part 1.

    2. You don't open the chest, you click on it and either the reward comes to you in a pouch in your main bag or directly in your main bag. Look closely in your main backpack, move things around, it might have appeared under something.

    3. You have to doubleclick the lantern to turn it on, then use the ink on it. (and standing the right spot of course.

    Re: bugs with Abyss quest?

    I had purchased a bunch of regular lanterns to be used for part #1 of the quest and had left them in the chest I marked "HOUSE QUEST". I grabbed one of the reg lamps the other day and didn't realize it until I was at Geoffrey wondering what was going on. However, one thing pops into my mind in your situation: Have you restarted Part 1 of the Quest on that character and not finished it resulting in Geoffrey not acknowledging that character?

    Just a thought...Did you click on Geoffrey and he thanked you and told you to retrieve an item from his war chest?

    I took my garg in last night and went just inside the entry from the Tomb of Kings and my lantern changed color straight away. I clicked the ink, targeted the lantern, dousing the flames "loser" *lmao* I went back to Uskadesh or whatever his name is and he told me to retrieve an item from his war chest and try again tomorrow.

    Last night was my 3rd night doing the quest on my garg due to him being a crafter and a WIMP, I wasn't too keen on taking him into the Abyss to see if I could get him killed. 3rd item from Uskadesh I got the Warders Armor of Augmentation. Good luck and I hope you get yours as well!

    I haven't been in game as of yet today. I hope once I get home and am able to roll through my human characters not to see your bug (I've been doing my garg after 10pm and leaving humans for next day). I hope your bug gets resolved and no one else is experiencing any issues.

    Re: bugs with Abyss quest?

    ok now I have to admit my own stupidity :sad3:

    I did mix up my lanterns. The one I couldn't get to work (#1) evidently belonged to my gargoyle and that's why it wouldn't work on the humans. When I used it on my gargoyle (#3) it worked perfectly and I completed the quest.

    I still don't know why I couldn't get my reward from the chest on one char but again it was probably something stupid. rolleyes:

    Thanks for replying everyone

    Check your backpack closely...you only have to doubleclick the chest and the reward appears in your backpack, it can be hard to see and buried under your items. If its a cloak you got, then its not in a pouch and it just appears normally, but it can be hard to see.

    Good luck.
