There is an issue with Written By The Victors in the Minmatar Epic Arc -Wildfire that I experienced and was wondering if it could be fixed by CCP at some point. In the above mentioned mission, you are required to loot a Wildfire Khumaak from a central burial tomb and warp out.
The Vast majority of the guides on the web tell you to rush it and warp out. Well In my speed tanked Machariel, I lapsed and did not notice several web EWAR ships and was grinded to a halt somewhere within 10km of the tomb and pointed. My shield melted extremely fast from lack of speed but I was able to warp out (thankfully) when the point broke while I was deep into armor on my shield / speed tanked Machariel.
HOWEVER, it showed the mission was complete as I’m sitting outside a station with my burning hull of a Machariel and was like…well no sense in going back there again if its complete. But lo and behold, the very next mission apparently requires you to turn in that item and I don’t have it.
I don’t believe the mission should be marked complete when you get within a certain range of the burial tomb but should instead be marked complete when the Wildfire Khumaak is in your cargo hold as this is needed for the completion of the entire arc. And absolutely nobody sells this item in contracts because they too need it to complete their arcs.
I cancelled the mission as there is no point in waiting. Faction hit and waiting 3 months on something that was supposed to be helpful…oh well. No biggie. There’s too much to do in Eve to even be bothered by this.
That being said, please fix this mission so no other capsuleer experiences this and thank you for your time.
