Computer- Mac OS X

The issue first happened when running School of Dragons on my mac, not in the browser.    

     (downloaded platform?)

Quest- Heart of Darkness (from the Battle for the Edge expansion)

      Objective- Grab onto the Armorwing

This happened yesterday, I cannot remember the exact time. Likely between 3-7 PM ET

---Steps---

- I was able to run the quest as normal with one issue: I couldn't see the dragons. The Catastrophic Quaken was invisible to me except for when I was watching the cutscene, but this caused no problems due to me not having to interact with it.

- I could not complete the objective "Grab onto the Armorwing" due to it requiring me to interact with the Armorwing, which was invisible to me/not there.

- I quit the game during the instance to try and fix the invisible dragons, and ended up back on Hobblegrunt Island. When I went over to the boat that would transport me to the instance and jumped in, I was stuck on the loading screen. I attempted this multiple times, and even tried going on the browser version (Firefox), but I kept getting stuck on the loading screen.

        (to clarify "stuck"; the loading bar on the screen filled up, but the gears kept spinning and nothing happened. Eventually, after not interacting with it, I recieved the idle Viking notification)

- Clearing my browser or my unity cache did nothing. (This may be because the issue first occured on downloaded platform, or it may be completely unrelated?)

---      ---

    If fixing this bug isn't feasible for some reason, would it be possible to reset my viking's (Sunivee Leifdottir) progress on this specific quest?

Heart of darkness and Battle of the Beast

I am having the same issues with belly of the beast quest and the heart of darkness quest, whereas Harold doesn't appear in the volcano for me to tap on and lead and I could not tap on the armorwing. This happened to me about 2 weeks ago now and since then if I attempt to return to the volcano or the boat on hubblegrunt Island, I just get stuck on the loading screen. Now not only can I not complete them but there don't seem to be any further quests for me to select with any other character. I play this game on my iPhone and it is very frustrating I have no tasks to complete other than farm. Please help!

bump

Just bumping this because it hasn't been fixed yet. Was hoping for a fix in the update today, but either it isn't coming or Fridays aren't for bug updates. I wouldn't know.

If I'm still having this issue in a week I'll message an admin.

duh duh duh deerrrrrrrrp

Kind of the same problem but...

Hello everybody,

 

I've came back to the game today after a long absence due to work, and came to find what you described, the difference for me is that I had "Heart of Darkness" glitched since I the time the expansion came out:

 

I did the quest for the first time and I didn't receive the prompt that I had trained/befriended the Armorwing and never got the dragon. I refreshed and completed all the expansion related quests ending with me acquiring the Hideout in Dragons Edge and the Armorwing never came.

 

I would later discover that although I had completed the expansion, the quest "Heart of Darkness" had rebooted, prompting me to get the arrows out of the Quaken's back but only allowing me to reach as far as to the second little cave we have to use to evade the guards thanks to an "invisible wall" that didn't allow me to get to the chamber where the Quaken is.

 

Today I came back to the game and found that for some reason, I have lost all access to expansion relatable content except for my dragons, meaning I can't get crops, animals and can't go to the respective islands, every time I try to go to any of them I get prompt to buy the expansion back...

 

And I had all four expansions, so I hope one the SoD team can help us all...

 

See you around!

derp, +1

now i want a terrible terror if they are that good at catching and fixing bugs

Thanks for updating this thread with a notification of the fix! I likely wouldn't have noticed for a few days otherwise.

Just here to confirm that I just completed the Heart of Darkness quest without any issues. Hurray!

 

As for the Belly of the Beast, try making another thread to call their attention. The old ones got buried down in the forum section, unlikely to ever see the light of day again, and this thread was never meant for said quest in the first place. Good luck!

Still broken

I have that quest for months now, Heart of Darkness, I'm wearing the disguise, go in, and when I press on the dragons nothing happen, even when I do axe the cage there is just sound and effect of axe coming up but nothing is happening. Any advise? I tried everything, ran normal, now through steam, restarted, relogged etc.

This is a thing

Yay, even more new bugs, JUST GREAT!!! Let me explain here.
I was playing Rise of Stormheart expansion pack on my secondary viking, I completed Astrid's Dragon Tactics Challenge, but, it doesn't say I did, therefore, I can't complete the mission, so I can't progress, this is also happening to others and this isn't just with the Rise of Stormheart, it's also with the Wrath of Stormheart. The Call of the Death Song epansion pack is apparently bugged in one place as well, I never encountered that though, but someone else did. SO LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, EXPANSION PACKS ARE BECOMING BUGGED! JUST GREAT! Although what is happening to you lot hasn't happened to me, I completed it on my secondary viking yesterday. BUT HERE WE ARE! MORE BUGS! NOW EXPANSION BUGS ARE BECOMING BUGGED! JUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUST GREAT! WHO'S FAULT IS IT!? NOT THE ADMINS! (For real though, it isn't their fault. Bugs occur in games after updates or other things, such in the case, I believe for the Wrath and Rise of Stormheart expansion pack problems are because of the Titan Wing Speed Stinger update, but I'm not sure) Anyway, sorry for the ranting. I hope the admins fix these bugs though, but we can't rush them, they need time to fix things. I've heard that they are trying to fix the chat, but that could take some time. As far as getting the expansion packs fixed, I'm gonna give them the time to fix it, yeah I'm annoyed and mad about it....but.....things can't always be fixed instantly, time can fix things, so as long as we give them time, support them, things should go well, for us players and for the admins. Rushing things? Yeah, that isn't the best way to go, rushing things just make them worse and even adds more problems, why am I posting this? And who am I? I want the admins to know they have my support on fixing things and that they have my patience, as for who I am? I'm WindSilverFury, a fellow SoD player just like you lot.
