Campaign buyout glitch?

Before I report this as a glitch, has anyone experienced the Tyranny of Dragons campaign buyout not unlocking the Protect the Portal weekly quest? Maybe it’s just me. If you’ve used a campaign buyout and got the weekly unlocked, how’d you do it? Do you have to slip Harper Boward 50K AD so she’ll start offering the quest?

This is only toon I have this problem on, and the only one I used a buyout on. :( Makes me reluctant to get another buyout. Thanks.

    It's to my understanding that even if you buy the campaign tokens to get certain events to trigger in the campaigns you still have to complete them in game if they are not part of the reward/buffs you get from the actual campaign window.

    I’ve tried that, but Harper Boward doesn’t offer those triggering mission sets that step you through the campaign, and Sergeant Knox doesn’t offer the initial mission to go talk to Harper Boward. The campaign boxes are all completed but I can’t go to the all the cult dragon maps and pick up those quests, only Neverdeath.

    It’s just all around odd. I’m going to keep trying every weird idea I can think of. Maybe I’ll try it while standing on my head next. :lol:

    I just went through this same thing. If I remember correctly, I had to complete the campaign all the way until near the top. To get those quests triggered you have to ask all those three people surrounding Harper in PE. There were other weird issues. Sometimes, in the areas that have dragon fights, like Whispering Caverns, Rothe Valley, etc... sometimes the people there associated with receiving the daily dragon quest will have quests triggered that you won't know about unless you go there. In other words, they will have quests that aren't assigned by any of the people in PE and until you complete them, the quests in PE won't trigger.

    I've never been a "fan" of the campaign buyouts, but if what @autumnwitch said is correct, then you must go into the Whispering Caverns, take the quest given by Drann Barrow, and kill the dracolich Vilithrax. That should unlock it. You will see a small cut scene where they mumble something about leaving to the Portal to Tuern. I find it very dubious that you need to do anything at all after paying $20 to skip the entire campaign. The only time I was forced to purchase a campaign buyout was due to a glitch caused by an update to Element Evil.

    Best of luck with it. <3

    Thanks, @autumnwitch & @sandukutupu . I’ll try checking with Harper Boward every day until I eventually get sent to Whispering Caverns and see if that dragon fight triggers it. If not, I’ll wait until I’ve completed the Well of Dragon’s top of that campaign window and cross my fingers.

    This sure does make me think about just sticking with campaign Signets from now on.

    Don't worry if Boward sends you. Run down there and talk to the guy and see if it will trigger it.

    @greywynd So far none of the dragon-landing areas offer me the associated Tyranny quests. When I talk to folks there, it’s just meaningless greetings, no quests. Same with Boward’s compatriots in PE. And, so far, she just sends me to Neverdeath.

    This does give me an idea though. I could just fight the dragon without the quest and see if it’ll still trigger the event. Hmm.

    Nope. That didn’t work. Went to Whispering Caverns, killed Vilithrax, got HE rewards, no cutscene. Weekly still not unlocked.

    Once again, no one offers the normal quests to kill Vilithrax or fight the cult in Whispering Caverns. Seems like those quests were never unlocked as part of the campaign buyout.

    On last thing, have you gone to the campaign window and completed the task "Assist the Zhentarim" and collected your reward? The portal part won't trigger until that is rewarded.

    It was auto-completed as part of the campaign buyout, auto gave me all the cloaks, just never unlocked the repeatable quests except Neverdeath. For some reason that’s the odd one out, the rest just haven’t appeared.

    All I can think is that the campaign buyout just didn’t flip all the switches. It completed the campaign window tasks, gave me the rewards, but the repeatable Tyranny of Dragons quests from Ebon Downs to Whispering Caverns were never activated, so now they remain locked/invisible to just this one character because of the campaign buyout.

    Can you post an image of the view of the campaign highlighted on the "Legacy Campaign" window and then a screen shot of what the campaign looks like once you select it?

    I wish these forums where a bit more friendly to posting photos of bugs & glitches, but they are not. I can send them to customer service though.

    Yes, I realize everyone else has all these social media accounts that they can use to host pictures. I do not; I will not. So until I can purchase my own site or pay for some service I trust, that will be a “No”.

    And please, please, please, don’t lecture me on how easy it is.

    Been there. Done that. Deleted my Photobucket account.

    Imgur works much better, though using these forums if you are on a mobile device is not recommended because they don't support HTML from mobile devices (something we moderators have been requesting for years now).

    I am a fan of Postimage.org no account required. Back on topic, my buddy @blargskull said, you must finish all these introductory quests listed on the wiki.

    @sandukutupu The problem is, it doesn’t offer me the other introductory quests. It has only offered me the Neverdeath quests and has remained stuck there, even though all the campaign boxes are completed. None of the folks near Harper Boward offer quests and no Harper agent in any of Tyranny of Dragon map location offer any of the normal quests, not even the repeatable ones let alone the initial quests. I’ve gone through this campaign 8 times so far. This is a first for me. I’m at a lost. That campaign buyout did something odd.

    @harerazor#0852 then at this point, I would file this under bugs, and/or PM @nitocris83 or @mimicking#6533 to find out if there is something everyone is overlooking. Personally I never used the campaign buyout token other than to repair the developer's error on the PC they never addressed. Stardust was only missing 1 corrupted text. These sell for $20 (2000 zen) and even paying for them in the AH is still costing your time making the AD. If this is broken, I wouldn't like paying for something that doesn't work 100% either. If it is some minor quest you need to finish on your end, they should add it to the token or have a disclaimer. I know not playing the Harper quest is costing you 4,500 AD per week.

    Once more, I wish you well getting that to work. Good luck! :+1:
