    Bug?
    Debugger's Serene Store Tab
    The Talisman Vest and Collar are unlocking per character instead of account wide


    Bug
    From the Shadows instance location:
    When you defeat Talisman, the moment she is about to fade she disappears too quickly for the recorded voice over to finish to play.

    Bug
    -Dr. Ka start out with 2 From the Shadows Quests
    75O9xkM.jpg

    -If you finish the mission, but didn't accept the reward from Dr. Ka (I had a Glove device in the bank and I couldn't finish the quest), and you leave the instance, there is no way to get back to Dr. Ka, including the Lab. The VB version of Dr. Ka doesn't work.
    -When you finish the quest and you backtrack to the exit instead of using SOCRATE, you will see Dr. Ka still chain up and repeat the message as if you're just enter the instance.




    Suggestion
    Seeing how you already have an announcement from the Red Banner event, you should have some way of Ladyhawke contact you to let you know about the next arc. Mailing or that Red Banner Event announcement would help.

    If you want more people to test the content for Serene Abyss I'd suggest adding at least a debugger option to just grant the mission to you on PTS. Realistically I'd just prefer if people could just run this serial without having done the previous one considering its missions all have to be done once/day. This also isn't a limitation that exists for other pieces of content with similar relations (i.e. you don't have to run 'Demonflame' to do 'Aftershock').


    Bug
    Dr. Ka is offering me two copies of the same mission? After taking it, it's clear it's just the same mission being listed twice.

    Suggestion
    For the VO that plays when entering the apartment, there should be a message generated in the 'NPC' channel just for player to double-check what was said.


    Bug
    Speech bubbles during the boss intro cutscene go by too fast compared to audio. This also occurs when Talisman is defeated, with some of her voice lines overlapping and her last line being cut off partway through when she teleports out.

    Also is slightly an issue during the intro cutscene and Dr. Ka's ending monologue.

  • If my character hasn't done part one of Death Rattle, can I do Serene Abyss? Because otherwise I'm going to have to find me a team.

    You need to cycle through all of the missions, initially you are limited to one per day... then they accumulate and become a daily thing.
  • Does this mission have anything to do with the New Shadows changes? If so I am excited to play this

    They're featured pretty prominently here, they're the main mob you fight in the new mission.

    Colour me surprised, it was obvious that they got updated just because they are part of the next Death Ratling Issue vQTD03D.png​​

    Noticed the same issues with the speech bubbles not syncing with the voice overs. And putting text in the NPC chat channel. Particularly since I don't always play with sound on it would have been easy to miss.

    After giving the mission, some indication that you need to exit the building would have been nice. I was waiting to follow Dr Ka.

    Can't resolve mission if already have the gauntlets. And since everyone should have done the first serial, everyone would have them.
    Last battle was surprisingly tough. Right after Talisman shielded for the first time, something took my health down very fast. Not sure if it was just the swarm of vampires, or if something else was happening. Can Talisman attack while in the bubble?

    At the final Talisman speech, as others noticed she vanished before she is done, but there was a flicker of a ghost of her re-appearing for a second.
