It has been three weeks now that I have been trying to solve this quest but when I need to feed Meatlug firewood and then cool the ashes it won't work because the ice icon disappears and each time I enter the lab I need to restart it all over again and it won't work. Help me please

Also I cannot play other quests that require use of the lab because of this.

If you would have searched in the internet, you would have found it in a few minutes...

Anyways, here is the forum post about it, made by "Pirin":

I managed to find a way to complete the quest in my game, so if you're having trouble you should try the following steps.

(I only had one shot at it so my instructions might not be completely accurate)

 

To complete Step 2, first complete step one by changing the states of water and recording it in your journal. Reset the experiment as prompted and feed Meatlug the firewood when it asks you to. Instead of using the feather, see if the ice/water/fire buttons are behind the box that tells you what Meatlug has eaten. If they aren't, I can't really help. If the ice button is still on screen while Meatlug has eaten the firewood, click it and fill the bowl under the crucible with ice using the ice scoop. Meatlug will throw up the ashes automatically into the chilled crucible, causing your journal to mark off step 2 as complete. You might have to click the "record result in journal" button if it appears. From here, the instructions will still basically block you from completing the rest of the experiment, so you should exit the lab and re-enter.

 

To complete the remaining steps, complete step 1 and reset the workspace as prompted by the instructions. The instructions will tell you to click the arrows at the bottom of the screen to go to the next step. Do not do this; at this stage alone, you can interact with the other materials. Feed Meatlug the firewood, the ball of dough and the gold. The ice/fire/water buttons should still be behind the box telling you what Meatlug has eaten. If you click the fire button, Meatlug will throw up the firewood ashes, a loaf of bread and the molten gold.

 

I presume the instructions for the bread and the gold involve heating or cooling in some way, because the bread will catch on fire, then the "record result" button will appear after the bread has cooled. The final step, involving changing the state of gold, will be completed by waiting for the gold to return to a solid ingot, then clicking the "record result" button when it appears. The gold takes a while to cool down, so be patient.

 

I would guess that you could complete the steps with each material separately by exiting and re-entering the lab for each material. I think the steps for cooling the firewood might be incompatible with the heating of the gold and the bread, but I completed the experiments for the bread and the gold in one round.

 

This still is a pretty serious bug, and even if this workaround works consistently, it needs to fixed or updated or something in the future. I can only really recount of how I managed to complete this part of the experiment, so, again, this may or may not work for anyone else, but I hope it helps. Reply in the thread if it worked for you!

Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! This stupid quest has been giving me grief for three days, and the game was at a standstill because all the other quests required me to use the lab. I had figured out how to work around the firewood and bread, but I couldn't get past the gold. I tried this though and it worked! Thank you so much! 

 

The admins really need to fix this.

Dragons:

Main Dragons

  • Pudding Cup, Female Gronckle- Sweet and always dependable. She sleeps with her eyes open, and cross-eyed.
  • Violet, Female Changewing- Named after Violet from The Incredibles. Fond of swimming, and up for any adventure.
  • Norbert, Male Death Song- Really likes firing at other players. He's... not quite right in the head, and may retain some cannibalistic instincts. Not afraid of the disgusting smell of the Dragon Bloom.

Other Dragons

  • Zappy, Male Shockjaw- Fast. Really fast. We do a lot of racing together, and he doesn't put up with nonsense.
  • Oddmund and Dinkly, Male Zippleback- When I first hatched these guys (this guy? who can tell), I took them to practice their fire skills at a fire pit. They lit it successfully, then promptly laid their heads in the flames and went to sleep. True story.
  • Lucius, Male Groncicle- Named after Frozone from The Incredibles.
  • Adelaide, Female Raincutter- Named after Snotlout's little sister from the HTTYD books. Likes battling Berserkers.

  • Puddles, Female Mudraker- She's pink, and lives up to her color.
  • The Whisperer, Male Whispering Death- Cranky, stubborn, tries to eat me occasionally. His name sounds uncreative, but I love the Mysterious Benedict Society. :P
  • Horrorcow, Female Razorwhip- Fast and very cool.
  • Eggingarde, Female Flame Whipper- Helpful and good at racing.
  • Tony Stank, Male Armorwing
  • Dr. McCoy, Male Boneknapper

Stormcloud

I was on dragon island because Thunderboom had a friend there that he loved to visit. I discovered a terrible terror nest with one little dragon egg in it. I thought it was adorable so I stayed with it and waited for its mother to come back. I had waited for almost two days and the mother hadn't come back. I built a camp on the island, knowing that I would have to stay for longer than I was supposed to. After about a week, the rest of the riders came because they were worried about me because I had been gone for so long. The riders have always been a little worried about me because I'm a lot younger than them. When I showed Hiccup the egg, he declared that the mother must have been hurt or killed and she was not coming back, so we had to take the egg back to Dragons Edge. Years later, Stormcloud had grown into an adult, although she was still much too small to ride. The riders came and found me while I was doing some battle training, and told me that they discovered something new and they wanted me to bring Stormcloud to see it. We traveled for about a day and all of our dragons, including Sandwings, the dragon I chose to come on, were very tired, and this of course made me even more curious. We then landed on an Island that I had never seen before, and the riders told me that this island was called Titan Island. The took me up a passage that led to the inside of a volcanoe. There was a big pedistal layed out infront of me. The riders begun talking amongst themselves and I overheard Fishlegs say, "She's ready." I didn't know who was ready or what they were ready for, but I was excited to find out. Astrid than instructed me to place Stormcloud in the center of the pedistal and stand back, so I followed her instructions. My eyes were glued on Stormcloud, and I watched as fire started to circle around her. I was shocked and scared, but when I looked back at the riders, they didn't seen worried at all. The fire started to fade away, and I looked at Stormcloud who was now bigger and looked different. She was a titan! About a year later, Stormcloud went off to join the Terrible Terror migration, and came back with a baby Terrible terror. I tought him a trick where he does a backflip and perfectly fires at a target. He was so good at it that I decided to name him Flipshot.

THUNDERBOOM

 

Thunderboom was my very first dragon. It is a very long story, but without it, I would never be who I am today. You see, I come from the same island as Heather. The moment, I saw weird ships heading toward the island, I warned my parents, but they didn't believe me, so I ran. A few days later, I went back to my village, but it was all distroyed. I ran to the house where my father worked as a blacksmith. All that was left was a shield and two axs, so I took them back to the camp I had build for myself. I realized that I would need to make a more powerful weapon, so I decided to make a mace. I would use one of the handles from one of the axs, and I would melt the metal to make a big ball, but I didn't know what to use for the spikes. Later that day, I heard a long howl. I was curious, so I desided to investigate. I peered over a small rock to see a deadly nadder attacking a young thunderdrum. There were blue and yellow spiked stuck in the thunderdrum's skin, and I realized what I had to do. My grip on the ax tightened, and I yelled out a battle cry, jumping onto the nadder's back. I started beating it with the ax, and it jumped around, trying to throw me off. When it finally got my laying on the ground, I remembered what I had learned in dragon killing school back on my island. I knew that I had to stay in the blind spot. It couldn't see me. I was invisible to it. As quickly as I could, I hopped on the thunderdrum's back without thinking, and he flew us up to safety. I directed the thunderdrum to my camp, where I healed his wounds, and realized that I could use the spikes stuck in his skin as spikes for my mace. That was when I discovered that I wanted to dedicate my life to healing dragons.

 

 

HOW I MET THE RIDERS

 

At this time, I now had many dragons. I was taking a trip to changewing island where I had just finished helping a baby changewing find her family. This just so happened to be the same place where the dragon riders were. From the moment Heather saw me she recognized me. I was so surprised that she had survived the attack and had also trained a dragon. The riders took me back to their base, and after building me my own hut, and stables to keep all of the dragons I had trained, they invited me to join them, and of course, I said yes.

Size: The size of a terrible terror

Story: I was flying with Stormcloud and Flipshot, trying to teach Flipshot some new skills when I saw something on a grassy sea stack. I immediately told Stormcloud to land over there, and when we did, I noticed that it was a cage with a small dragon in it. I was an expert lock picker back on Sandstone Island, so I easily picked the lock on the cage. When the dragon was out of the cage, I realized that I had never seen this kind of dragon before. I compared it to Flipshot and discovered Taft they were almost the same size. I named her Mystery because I didn't know where she came from. I am still searching for the people who left Mist in that cage, and for more of her kind.
