    Default Phase 5 is IMPOSSIBLE to achieve

    Hi guys

    so on Argent Defiant side we have worked our butts off every phase to achieve the objectives,
    only to be faced with Phase 5 that IMO cannot be achieved

    i had a convosation with a dev who told me that he cant explain how to obtain the 100k goal but can confirm that War Fronts would NOT give controbution to the quest, he said this would be too easy

    well first off we are on a server that is RP/PvE and there is very little PvP action so the main way to get PvP kills would be War Fronts! and even then we are very few that PvP so would be very hard work to obtain the 100k quest

    so we then tested open world kills and to my surprise these also DO NOT count here is a vid i made of me killing a guardian in sliverwood :-


    ok so that did not work how about killing the Guardian NPC's at the out posts


    OMG another fail

    so from what i can tell the only way to get controbution towards the phase is by completeing the daily quests
    from the NPC's in Meridian:-
    Attack the Outposts (PvE),
    Decisive Action (PvE),
    Enemy at the Gates (PvE)
    Stop the Guardians (PvP)

    we are a low population server a great number of us have already completed all the daily quests and 2hrs in we are on 445/100000

    now unless my whole server is missing something there is no other way to complete the 100k achieve other than the daily quests

    if this is true then Argent and MANY other server do not stand a chance or getting the 100k achieve

    im very unhappy with this give the hugh amount of work my server has done to achieve EVERY Phase until now

    Trion you should have made this 10k like phase 3/4 not 100k to allow low population serevrs a chance of getting it

    you should also have made it so at least open world PvP kills controbute to the Phase


    one thing i left out, when killing a player in open world you get a War Trophy we expected this to controbute to the Phase but there is no NPC to hand them in

    even if there were killing 100k players on a PvE server is IMPOSSIBLE in 1 week !!!!

    thats the point killing members of the opposite faction DOES NOT controbute to phase 5

    you can kill as many guadians as you like it does NOTHING !

    can't you summon the Saboteur for the Coin quest and keep killing him? I think thats how people did it. Just re-spawning that guy and killing him over and over again. If you want it even easier, get a lvl 10 to do it, it will spawn lvl 10 npcs

    So Phase 5 really is Open World PvP? Is this forced or what? (i.e. are they forcing everyone's PvP flags on?)

    your thinking of Phase 4 there are no sabs in phase 5 so no u cannot do that

    there are NO repeatable quests

    They are not forcing any flags on. Participation in PvP remains optional.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    open world PvP DOES NOT count towards phase 5

    from my reseach its only the daily quests that controbute

    pvp in any form DOES NOT COUNT!

    It's gonna be even worse in phase 6. 300 Fire/Earth zone events in 1 week? I'm not sure that's even possible on the most populated server in the game.

    Thanks for calling this out - War Trophies are meant to be the always repeatable way of progressing this event. Looting any 'green con' player corpse will give you a trophy, including in warfronts, which you should be able to turn in at any time in stacks. Looking around, we're not seeing the quest active though - so we are looking in to this.

    edit: so feel free to stockpile them until we resolve this

    Unless it's set up so that they are ALWAYS happening.
