    Default Ruined Research quest, Bugged or wrong area indicated

    Im currently working my way through Goboro Reef

    Ruined research needs me to get some research caches in the Mem Ruins. I cant seem to locate them in teh area highlighted and there is only one thing in the area which seems like it would be but it was for another quest that i completed at the same time. Has anyone else encountered this and how do i sort it

    From memory, it's all underwater, you activate a few tracking stations on the outside of the main zone, you fight some mob for a prototype weapon, the caches i believe you need to dig up, not sure is there some item you need to use to cause them to "appear" or sparkle, it has been a while.

    Ive done the weapon proto-type and the surveillance net. And i cant seem to find the caches, theres 1 things that has a name when hovered over, Barnacle encrusted object, which i think thats what you were talking about. I cant find anything that can open it

    Okay, just had to do a few quests to reach the Ruined Research part, you do indeed click on items scattered on the sea floor, as you get near you'll see a 'wave' of light then the item will sparkle, took a screenshot so you know what to look for, they look like a landmine.


    Best way when you find one is just to shard hop and click the same one if needed.

    Strange, i did this on North America if that's any use, anyway, i abandoned the quest and took it again to record some locations, i noticed a few of them don't sparkle and can't be clicked on so that might be causing your issue.


    Copy and Paste or type these into your chat box:


    /setwaypoint 4207 6593


    /setwaypoint 4210 6626


    /setwaypoint 4161 6621


    This will put an X mark on your map, kill some mobs guarding them, loot and profit.

    I appreciate the help man, but even with your coords they just arent there. Im on EU so it MIGHT be a EU problem but im not holding my breath.

    I play from EU, it's just that i knew my NA char hadn't run through Goboro Reef, i ran one of my EU chars through it again and the issue is, you will need to shard hop, i found these three locations on EU that definitely work but on some shards they don't work.


    So go to these locations one by one and shard hop until you find it sparkling, rinse and repeat.


    /setwaypoint 4160 6611


    /setwaypoint 4175 6585


    /setwaypoint 4207 6594


    Remember, if you find one not sparkling, shard hop until it does.
