Family Name: LordOfTerror

Region (NA/EU): EU

Suggestion/Comments: Seeing that with every new region a lot of new knowledge is getting added, which makes it sad that some of the old ones are still not working properly or that cannot be obtained anymore for newer players, making impossible to obtain all knowledge and make the tabs blue.

There are a total of 258 entries still missing or not working properly, it would be nice to see this finally being fixed so that we can get them all.

Broken knowledge due to updates, 18 entries.

Adventure Journal > Star’s End Adventure journal: Altar of Blood.

◆ With the removal of Altar of Blood these cannot be obtained anymore.

Solution: bring back Altar of Blood or add it to one of the old AoB related quest NPC’s


Life Skill > Alchemy: Magic Crystal of Infinity Strength, Ensnare.

◆ Magic crystal of the sun Ensnare, Boulder < Green grade were patched out 8 feb 2019 when removing crystal drop from calpheon.

◆ These can only be obtained if you started the quest in the season they were in.

Solution: Make it so we can do the quests again since they are a family quest, or add the knowledge to Fughar.


Unreasonable knowledge 1 entry.

Adventure journal > Journal of the Great Ocean.

◆ Ocean destiny: Washed Up Lopters.

◆ with the very rare spawn of lopters and a low chance to get the knowledge after the kill it is very unlikely to get it.

Solution: make lopters spawn more often and increase the chance to get the knowledge.

Unrepeatable knowledge > Ecology, 3 entries.

Boss: Garmoth.

Ecology of Calpheon: Mutant: Mutant Troll, Mutant Ogre.

◆ The 3 entries above cannot be repeated, so it is nearly impossible for those that deleted it to get it back or roll for a higher grade.

Solution: make the quests repeatable or add it to a NPC like some of the other similar knowledge.


As a related side note the God Of knowledge title.

◆ make the God Of Knowledge title work like the arsha’s Proof title a different color depending on the amount of acquired knowledge.

◆ Example.

6001: blue as it is now.

7001: pink

8001: red

9001: gold

Definitely agree! Please fix existing problems before pushing new content.

It is rather tragic that these problems have persisted for many years.

I agree, please finish incomplete things before moving on to the next agenda.
