    Same issue here.

    Bug Type: Event
    World: Scania
    IGN: Thundertala
    Level/Job: 240 Arch Mage (Ice/Lightning)
    Date/Time of occurrence: April 18th, 2019 @ 10:05 PM EST, 7:05 PM PST, (April 19th, 2019 @ 2:05 AM UTC)
    Description: Peplock Holmes epilogue does not play out properly

    Steps to reproduce:

    After completing the previous episodes of the Peplock Holmes event, proceed to collect 200 passes to access the epilogue. The cutscene plays up to the point where Peplock says "This one!" then briefly displays a black-and-white scene before booting the player back to their original map.

    If the player accepts the quest on the star menu again, the black-and-white cutscene will again briefly flash before booting the player back to their original map once more.

    I'm having the same problem. My sister was able to do the quest though ... it seems to be a throwback of a previous quest. I think one of the throwbacks is causing this glitch, just not sure which since nothing loads at all... I get kicked out back to my original map immediately.

    So far these throwbacks are known to work:
    - bird shooting
    - zakum
    - identifying silhouette

    The matter has been forwarded. I can add that the Slide Puzzle activity functioned correctly to me, so it was not the culprit.

    Thank you MegaScience. Sadly this means I can't progress in the quests, so will miss out on the meisters that I was looking forward to! Hope they give us an extension or compensation.

    I got through Episode 1 but am having the same issue in epilogue 2 in luna
    starting with epilogue 1 we get one of the previous quests as random, so i guess one of those is bugged

    Hello guys, I have an issue related to episode 11 of peplock. When I enter the event map (peplock office) it inmediately kicks me to the previous map. All I can see is me droping inside the peplock office and then I'm back at the previous map where I was. I cant even see peplock or Yetson on the screen, and is imposible to comply with the quest. What can I do???

    I'm told the equation one works too (where you select 1-9 without repeats to get the desired output).

    To summarize so far, here are the ones we eliminated:

    WORKS:
    Episode 1: Unlock that code (guessing 1-999) .. works
    Episode 2: Slide puzzle .. works
    Episode 3: Zakum rock, paper, scissors .. works
    Episode 4: Where's that place? (Snail thing) .. works (confirmed in Peplock Holmes Epilogue 2 (Episode 11) Bug thread)
    Episode 5: Math equation .. works
    Episode 6: Memory dance .. works
    Episode 8: Who's that NPC? (identifying silhouette) .. works
    Episode 9: Aim for the eagle .. works

    UNCONFIRMED:
    Episode 7: Mastermind (guessing correct position of 3 numbers for the Octopus).. guessing this is the one that is bugged

    This is an issue with one of the throwback quests... basically both episode 10 and 11 are epilogue quests which just recycles one of the previous episode quests. One (or more) of those previous quests are not working as intended, so it will kick you out instead. The issue was first identified in the episode 10 bug report here:
    http://forums.maplestory.nexon.net/discussion/24193/peplock-holmes-episode-10-help#latest

    I'm sure they must already be investigating which quest is problematic, but if you can help to narrow down the search by reporting which quest worked for you in episode 10 (if it wasn't already mentioned), that'd probably help! :)

    Ohh of course!!! for Episode 10 mine was the quest for searching an specific spot on the map. I had to go to the station for Eldestain. I think its the same as the snail dream, where the little one dreamed of a place and peplock had to find it. It worked perfectly.

    I'm having the same problem with epilogue 3. But epilogue 1 (zakum) and epilogue 2 (XYZ 3 number location) both worked for me.

    I have a sneaky suspicion the bug might be related to the snail’s ”Find this spot in MapleWorld” mini game. (Something having to do with quests in event restricted maps...)

    Has anyone been given the snail’s request for their final chapter and successfully completed it?

    When I complete the 200 tickets I want to enter but what happens is that it enters and leaves instantly.
    someone else the same thing happens to him?

    It is very sad to invest this much time and being allowed to finish the event.
