Hasty Hunt Hidden Mission not working as described
Bug type: Quest glitch
Brief bug summary: The Hidden Mission for Hasty Hunting this week will not show up on other characters after unlocked by one, despite the NPC Cassandra stating it can be done by any other character in the account
More details: I first went through the Hasty Hunting Daily event before the maintenance yesterday with a new character created for the Burning Event. After completing the daily mission, that character received the Hidden Mission, and I saw the beautiful Autumn Swan Boat offered as a reward for completing said Hidden Mission. I would rather have it on my main than an alt, and NPC Cassandra said very clearly that the Hidden Mission can be completed by any character on the account, so I switched back to my main and grinded through the daily Hasty Hunting again to get to the weekly. After completing the daily missions on my main character (same world as the burning alt), the quest for the weekly Hidden Mission did not show up. Relogging several times and going to the Event Hall to speak to NPC Cassandra directly did not fix the issue.
Character name: OracleFay (main)
Character level: 194
Character job: Phantom
World name: Broa
Date and time of the incident: Friday, June 9th, around 4-5 AM EST.
Thank you for your time.

You've solved nothing. The quest dialogue doesn't matter. If you activate the hidden mission on one character, you can't make it appear on any other character. You're stuck with whoever you made it appear on. You can't even begin it again on another character if you made a mistake, it has nothing to do with whether your kills carry over or not. You haven't read the post at all. Jesus.
What's worse is that the time is ticking on an extremely short event and if you don't do both weeks you get completely screwed. You're already screwing us with the wondroid event, isn't that enough?
Though I think they were a bit harsh in wording it, I do have to agree with this poster's sentiment. Whether or not the quest dialogue is accurate or not is irrelevant, the issue is that we cannot acquire the weekly mission on any other character once we've acquired it on one, despite going through the prerequisite daily missions. This essentially traps us with a mission of killing 4,444 monsters for an untradeable chair on a character many of us do not want the chair on. It's unfair, to say the least.
Having said that, I do not believe in the slightest the quest dialogue is actually faulty here, because the dialogue went out of its way to specify that this time around, we'd be able to complete it with any characters in that same world - whoever wrote it clearly understood that previous events did not have this feature, and wanted to point out that it was different this time around.
The autumn swan chair is really a beautiful prize, I would sincerely appreciate it if you could put out a fix for this so we can at least get the weekly quest on the desired characters rather than whoever got it first, before the week is up.
Agree with this one. Last round I activated the kill quest on my main and the kills on my link skill mule I was training then counted for it. This resulted in me having an easy time getting the rewards on my main. I figured this time around I'd do it again but get the rewards on an alt since my main already has it. And this happens.
If they're going to insist this is just a "text issue" then the least they can do is make the rewards tradeable within account. Most, if not all, has activated the quest on their mains anyway. Adjusting the trade restriction on the rewards would make this less of an inconvenience.
Yeah...cuz I don't want hte dmg skin on my main...I already have the chair on my main too.
I can't recall...I do know I have the damage skin on my Bishop, and the chair on my Main...so in theory its possible...but I did both weeks. So...I can't confirm.
I'm not entirely sure. I'm only on 32k kills atm. However, here is all I can remember:
Previous haste event:
Accepted 44k kill quest on bucc
Kills on aran counted
Bucc has the chair
Neer has the damage skin (although it's possible I simply transferred it from my bucc since, unlike chairs, damage skin coupons are almost always tradeable within account)
This haste event:
Accepted 44k kill quest on bucc
Kills on zero, neer and wh NOT counting
chair status: tbd (most likely will end up on bucc as a duplicate at this point seeing as how it's untradeable)
UPDATE: finished the 44k kill quest on bucc,
did not appear for zero who already has the quest activated before I finished the 44k kills. Same for neer and WH. didn't bother ssing the last two.
Tried to accept the quest on a new char, nothing:
damage skin status: tbd
Updated my post above. Hope that's enough.
It won't help those who wanted to do the 44,444 kills on another character and are stuck doing it on a less suitable character, but at least once they're done with that the chair won't be redundant.
(Changing item tradeability will require a patch to the client, though, so I would not expect it to happen before the big Override patch unless something else more urgent needs patching).
Why? Because it's poor at mobbing?
You can leech kills.
My alliance goes as a group to MP3 for these things. With several people attacking, and a Kanna for Kishin, it goes very fast.
6/17 7:30 AM
Steps to reproduce: Be the victim of the haste only on one character for the entire week bug.
Complete the first weekly mission on one character, unlocking the title mission
Complete the 2nd weekly on a different, better character.
Then you can't get the 2 weeks title on anyone but the first character.
I gave up on the event when I did it on my main (Cuz I have been far too busy training my alt characters, mainly my Kanna and my Resistance characters, going to probably start Kaiser tonight) ..I really like the damage skin but Id rather do it on the whole account (cuz Im not killing 44k mobs on my Main when I need to train other things right now)
