Depleted Artifacts

panzer40kpanzer40k Posts: 5Member Arc User
Anyone else having issues with completing this quest line? I have relogged, dropped and restarted quest several times. Go to the rune spawns in Undermountain, no depleted artifacts or any other drops for that matter. Is this quest bugged?

    sometimes they take a long time to drop - was like that on my GF

    thanks for the feedback...I was grinding for over an hour. I didn't even see any more of the runic shards drop anymore...thought it was bugged

    been farming for 3 hours for the quest item. I can get all 10 shards to drop...no depleted artifact. GO to submit a ticket...get stuck in the infinite "Bug report" loop. Go to ARC site to submit ticket...same loop.

    Ok - figured out the runic essence thing. Not exactly intuitive.

    I was wondering where the new grind would be in the new zone, given that the actual campaign was pretty straight forward and could be done with no time gates.

    Found it.

    SOLUTION: finally got a depleted Artifact to drop. It's NOT in a bubble rune heroic encounter as it says in description. It drops from Master Expedition. Got one to drop first ME I completed.

    The depleted artifact also drops from the runic encounters in the Undermountain instances.

    You need to farm 1200 resonances from those anyways for the next quest in the series, to restore an armor piece. So don't despair if it does not drop immediately. Took me a bit of farming to get it, but it dropped eventually.

    consistent chat rumor that restoring this item is a

    net loss

    both in time, materials and AD

    After 10-15 rune heroics over several hours ,no depleted artifacts
    I am curious how some people seem to be able to get them so easily..

    For this boundless runic corruption quest ,getting the unstable resonance for the 5 colors was no problem .. maybe 10-15m

    hours and hours after that spent trying to get this depleted artifact thing that never drops.

    It certainly is. Possibly only the hat is situationally BiS, and that too will probably be outdated when LoMM comes.

    Reason for doing this is more a desire to complete all quests etc.

    *** WORK AROUND ***

    This has happened where you will collect all the runic but never get a depleted artifact.

    This can be fixed by dropping the quest and redoing it from Sinye. Generally I've found it takes 2 spawns for rune encounters to get all the materials.

    Personally experienced and done this to resolve. This is not to say that the same bug will not occur twice in a row but this has helped other people with the same problem.

    So I have to do one Master Expedition before collecting the other materials (resonance) ? When I do the Runic encounters, I loot every resonance needed in one encounter. I farmed for the artifact on ME and runic encounters but I never looted it.

    I've noticed that at least 3 out 5 times depleted artifact dropped when my attack killed the mob in runic HE. For other two times I'm not sure. So I would suggest farming it on unpopulated instances for it.

    my wife and I are currently having this problem also, numerous hours farming HE's and NO Depleted Artifact. I did this quest with one of my other toons and got all the requirements in about 1 hour. And BTW ... those Whirlwinds that toss you around ... VERY annoying .. esp when you get hit by 2 of them in a row and then clobbered by an Umber Hulk or Troll - dead.

    I'm submitting a bug report about this atm also.

    Good luck everyone !!!
