    Isn't about time these seers were removed?. Twice in the last couple of weeks I have been asked by new players how to do this quest. They are doubtful when you tell them that it is no longer possible which seems reasonable as they are still there happily offering the quest to all who approach. Anyone who still has threads should certainly have used them by now. Just to compound the issue there are now two at each location. A bit of clearing the decks is called for.

    I still have items from many old quests but that is because I chose to not through any kind of necessity. I also have threads and a couple of cloaks but I have no intention of using them. This is a dead quest and misleads new players.

    I certainly agree that anything that confuses our rare beginners needs to be addressed.

    See that's what General Chat is for. Asking questions of folk in the know. I think they should return some way of getting the threads.

    Well the sad truth of the matter is, in general chat, they would probably be told, "get the $%^& out of here you %^*(U_ noob!" or "Come to Yew gate and I'lll show ya how to do it" or any of many other assorted helpful and friendly comments. Which usually would leave an even more bitter taste in the mouth than following dead quest...

    Uriah Heep your quite right about the *bad Eggs* But I try to help any new player I run across... And yes I have had to tell many that quests for things they read or seen are over. Like today forexample a returning player asked about the bane cloak quest.... There are many things that are left out or npc's that are no longer viable for any quest... Been pointed out that the picture of some creatures for the bust quest are no longer gettable... how do you explain to them without giving the feeling someone dropped the ball on cleanup...

    It's really a good indicator at the amount of attention this game is given.

    Your son is wrong. The creatures from that building now spawn at the Gargoyle mining camp near Honesty moongate in Ilshenar. So Christy1221 you can complete the collector's quest.

    I would guess, from past experience, that they don't remove them because the minute they do there'll be someone posting on here 'where did the seers go? I have 200 threads to hand in and I can't find them, I want the cloak.'

    Not just seers, Where did the guys go for the quest where you have to turn in that set of virtue armor? When I finally got all my pieces, I couldn't find them anywhere and finally just cancelled the quest to get rid of it. (But thanks to the RNG I have plenty of replacement pieces, espec. since they only come w/ SR5.)

    Well there was a problem for a while. They blew up the castle and all inside it without finding them a new home, so players couldn't do the colllector quest until they had them spawn at the mining camp. Swat him anyway.

    should re add the monsters required to get the threads (maybe round new haven for new characters) and somehow add a way to get the cloak of corruption again or could replace that requirement with something else.
    would be a easy way for new characters to get a decent robe, of course theyd have to add gargy versions

    Just a heads up if you decide to do the quest. I've been gone awhile so not sure if this is a known issue but don't let the pieces stack together. I did the quest 10 times and was just putting the pieces in a pouch till I was done. They all stacked together and when I double click on them and target a piece it says nothing happen. I took them all appart and only one will make a target and it won't combine with any of the others. I did they quest two more times and didn't let the new pieces stack and they go together just fine. So don't let them stack it makes them not work anymore :(
     
  19. They should not get rid of them. I used the seers to get a robe I needed the other day. There are still threads and cloaks of corruption on shards even if you can't hunt them down any more. So they should be left in.
