    Awesome! So characters under 48 or 50, only get 2 bracelets for the whole event. That's really swell! Thanks so much for the Nerf!

    Last year iirc the same issue occurred for people who completed it the previous year, if you completed it in a previous year you don't get the bracelet this year. I think last year they fixed it and awarded a bracelet to everyone from a follow up quest that just auto-completed and awarded a bracelet if you didn't get one already that year because you had the year before. Ya, confusing. I have no idea if that same follow up quest is active now, but it does appear the original non-rewarding quest for a following year is active.

    Basically another bracelet lost for veteran players.

    This is especially unfortunate considering these players can easily reach those zones now with side kicking. I suppose however the reason they don't allow them is that they don't need as many bracelets for their rings and essences, so overall need less in total. However any low level that knows what they are doing would not bother with the essence or rings for their level and instead get the 65 versions for when they reach that level anyway, so in fact they do need as many bracelets as anyone else.

    I can understand why though, since it is trivial to level a character up to level 10 and farm alts for the bracelets. They would probably have to set it to at least level 30 or 40 like the promo events.

    That is a very good point. I have reduced the minimum level for all Summerfest quests to 10. Unfortunately, this necessitates reducing the XP payout of all the quests to a maximum of classic lvl 50 values, but will allow players of all levels to fully participate in the event.

    As a random aside, while doing the new minion chain (bought minion for 750p and spent about 2500 adventurine on 'hurry' missions) I got 5 bracelets. Likely due to having a good supply of level 25 minions to maximize rewards.

    Is this only for those lower level characters or for all characters, I know the Mathosian quest already seems to scale to level, a level 24 of mine only gets 5040XP while my 65 gets 10080XP. will the other quests be scaled to that same range, or will they vary upward to current values beyond 50 and 60?

    Regardless the loss in XP is only half a million, which is not that huge for 50-59 and especially 60-65. Is it possible to retain any PA XP values as they currently are?

    There is a bug in how those rewards were being generated, so we've taken them offline to get them fixed. They'll return next week.
    Does that mean after next week's patch, or is it an internal change that can be done before?

    Very few people seem to use/check the forums. Despite that, I'm noticing a trend- Trion never seems to care at all to let their player base know when something is going on/being disabled/being fixed. I feel bad for people who lost their adventurine. Is it really so hard to set up a server message that players see when they log in?

    Is this supposed to have already taken effect? I have just logged on my L10 alt and he's not able to take the Planar Scavenger Hunt in Draum, the Empyrean Scavenger Hunt in TB or the Capture it All quest in Meridian?

    Default no bracelets

    most items require bracelets. unfortunately, the currency isn't shared. i have 0 bracelets. i have finished most of the quests and sent my purchased minion on several hunts so far. no bracelets. why bother to require multiple bracelets for a purchase if they are so rare? another way to force us to pay with real money perhaps? some things i simply won't purchase. oh well, some items i can't get at all it seems. no bracelets.

    btw doesn't help to put your alts to work when they don't get bracelets either and the currency is not shared.
