The druid epic is very long. All epics are very long. The druid/bard/mage/ranger epics are 2 parts that are a ton of running. The first part involves collecting ciphers. This takes over 3 hours. The next part requires some help and then you kill Chardith. This takes over an hour and possibly longer if you die.
At some point last night, I got tired of waiting for the quest npc to respawn. So I deleted the 2nd part to see if it would help out. The npc was just standing there but wouldn’t talk. Completely my fault but boy, how I get WoW and EQOA confused…
When you start the 2nd part of the quest, you have to turn in the ciphers from the first part. Which means that if you delete the 2nd part from your quest log, you no longer have the ciphers to start it. So yeah… I’m up a creek and my options are to write a help ticket to SOE (done, not that they’ll respond) to or redo the first part. Not happening.
I play this game for fun and the first part of this quest is not fun at all. It’s pointless running and coaching that isn’t worth repeating. Unfortunately the druid is no fun without the epic ability (see previous post).
