    Default quest: bad energy

    been trying this for a while now and the most particles i got was 8...
    this is just not do-able on a slower PC. or maybe any PC!
    either add an 'up' button or stop it resetting when you are back at the top!

    the daily isnt possible, 20 in one hit? not anywhere near that amount!
    but then on the 6th upgrade of the eternal weapon, you need 25 in one hit? its just not possible!

    please rethink this quest

    its lovely to have some sort of puzzle aspect to the questline, but all this quest will bring you is a lot of angry players.

    Press 1 and 2 on the way down to float to each "ball". Don't touch red or you loose a charge.

    Default Agreed

    Tagging 15 energy orbs was a bit of a pain, but honestly if it's going to take 25 to successfully pass the quest line, then I'd be curious to see it there was any in house testing, and how long it took to successfully complete on average.

    They actually slowed the rate of fall down in the Live version compared to what was on PTS just the night before.

    For me it was painfully slow. I ended up getting 24 or so on my first run down and it took like 4 minutes of falling and pressing 1 and 2. I have pretty bad ping so I don't think that effects it.... but maybe a low end PC has trouble with it? Just really hope people have been pressing theirs ones and twos. It's not really evident you need to do that from the get go.

    I have tried several times to do this quest, but the most energy i have been able to capture is 11.I push one and two all the way and avoid the red spheres. i think that it should not reset.

    Default Same

    Tedious, aggravating, and not fun.

    Default I agree...

    This quest su*** big time. I have spent a lot of money on this game, and this one issue makes me seriously consider leaving. I am not coordinated enough to be able to do this (I'm old).

    Trion should give us an alternate task to do. I am beginning to think they have a sadist in dev's clothing lurking there somewhere.

    This is not my favorite. I am just lousy at getting there. But I have managed to do it for the weapon quest at least 5 times now. Hop shards, patterns are different. Keep at it, don't whine because it is hard.

    I hate this quest. It is NOT doable with lag and the charge releases take too long to cool down. Take away the reset because this quest is not interesting or fun, is too time-consuming and is so annoying I don't even get that "rise to the challenge" desire to try again. With this you get angry players. Dangle a nice weapon at the other end of a miserable quest and you get REALLY angry players.

    Default It's all in the timing

    I struggled with it, too, but it's not that bad once you get the timing down. The first and 2nd buttons shoot you forward but also give you lift. if you press one of the buttons as soon as it comes off cooldown every time, you'll fall really slow, sort of float. Turning is tricky, though, you can't turn until you slow down from shooting forward, just before it's time to press a button again. Try to turn too soon and you twist in the air, and it messes you up.

    If you're having trouble, make a few runs through it where you just practice the timing. Get to where you can float and circle, just slowly spiral down. Remember that you've got to press a button when it's time, to keep your float going, even if you're not pointed the direction you want to be. Once you've got that down, then work on getting lined up on the particles.

    I almost decided it was impossible, but once I figured out the trick to it...well, it's still hard, but it's doable, even kinda fun. I managed to get to 20, and I'm sure I can do 25 with a little more practice.

    I though quest was changed on PTS, but it was just a necro of old thread.
