There we go, some actual detail.  Got the name of the quest?  Can it be fixed by in-game support, or no?

Sounds like a rather frustrating, but trivial, fix.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

I'd have to agree with this.

I hit 50 on my Bounty Hunter yesterday and completed my class quest. I'm the 2nd BH in my guild to do it, and the 3rd that I personally know. There was a very challenging fight, and it may be bugged, not sure if it was bugged or just hard, but all three of us completed it.

I feel I can fairly confidnetly say that there isnt a BH Class Quest that isnt completeable if you either play intelligently or give in, and get some help. Instead of saying 2 classes cant do it, the truth would really be closer to "two ways to advance the class quest, but I chose neither."


Good thread!

If I can find it I will link it. Someone else was raging about something similar to what the OP is flipping out about. The pointed out two quest for classes were bugged or some crap.
 
Not sure if you noticed, but that is the typical TOR fan response whenever someone finds a issue:
Bug reporter: Hey I found a bugged node
TOR fan: wtf zomg WoW had like so many bugs in 2005
Bug reporter: huh what just reporting a node
TOR fan: zomg did you ever play Vanguard it had bugs too zomg


 

Except that isn't how it happened or I guess you have not seen any bug report ever.

This isn't bug reporting:

"This is how awesome swtor is.2 classes cant progress the main quest."
"This is translated fooling with customers and they pay me to fool them."
"I had enough even if i like star wars i cant take it"


No specification on what the issue is supposed to be, no further appearance in thread.


It is just a standard, ordinary troll/hating related thread.

Not to mention, people have reported continuing their quest lines in both of those classes without any issues.  It always amazes me how people who don't actually play the game just spend their day cruising the swtor.com and mmorpg.com forums looking for complaints from players as some way to justify their hate of TOR instead of playing the game that THEY like.  

Games like Rift and WoW wouldn't be bleeding subs if the people that were loyal to that game spent more time making those games fun for others instead of trashing a game they aren't even playing.

I have no clue WTF is the OP is talking about Smuglers however.


Which quest?

These was one Secret something or other on DK where a choice essentially stopped progress, but you could abandon the quest, and restart it and every other choice worked. That however was supposed to have been fixed (I picked a different option in live so I'm not sure.)

Copypasta from the big thread on swtor.com:

This bug only occurs if you chose the dark side or neutral responses in the end of the Number One With a Bullet quest, and kill the Chancellor. Basically, choosing this ends your class quest once you go back to Darth Tormen. This choice means the quest "First Strike" will NOT trigger and will not be added to your log. First Strike is the Ilum quest.

If you choose to spare the chancellor, Number One With a Bullet ends there and you receive a follow-on quest called "Some People Just Need Killing". Upon completion of this quest, where you kill Darth Tormen, First Strike triggers properly and you can progress to Ilum normally.

In-game support are closing tickets with a canned "known issue" response afaik.

By the reading of the OP it looks to be a hate/troll/rant thread.

 

And by all means, with such lack of detail given the information that is provided leads me to believe user error as well.

With the evidence that the glitch is not unbeatable or game breaking and many have gotten past the content provides more foundation that the OP lacks the skill or creativity to overcome some of the more challenging parts of the game.

Now that takes balls. You of all people calling me out for criticizing a game when you lived on the Rift forums for the past 8 months. GG.

 

@OP be more specific or people rage and autimatically think you are out to kill the game

Ive also played Rift (as recently as last month) and was at least sometimes constructive and always honest.  And go count my number of posts there in 9 months vs your total swtor posts in one week

I m 2 lvls above the quest and it's impossible to complete it.

I think they have released a beta game.This is translated fooling with customers and they pay me to fool them.

I had enough even if i like star wars i cant take it 

So essentially because the game has some challenge rather than doing what any normal player would do and rise to it or go and level up a little more so you can complete it . You come onto the forums and have a hissey fit and stamp your feet a bit like some spoiled little child .

Its probably its not too hard its just that you've come from WoW and your not used to a game that takes a degree of skill and challenge to play . Its most likly down to the fact your not as good a gamer as Blizzard led you to believe .

Go and sit in the quiet corner for 20 mins and cool down :) .

Umm what the hell is the OP talking about? I have a BH that never had a single issue all the way up to level 20 so far. Is this issue after level 20? I know i didnt skip any of the class quests, seriously...what?!?! What Bug?

Supposedly fixed in 1.0.2 which is on the PTR now...

Some fights are meant to test your ability to utilize situational skills, like stuns or chain attacks / defensives....etc.  They also post the help tip quite often during loading screens to make sure that people don't forget to use medipaks and stims if a fight seems too tough.  Some battles require you to move around, using objects for line of sight defense.  I know I use them often so I can get a heal off without interruptions.  Don't forget to check your companions skill bars and make sure all the new powers they get as they level are activated for use, they make a huge difference in the companions contributions during combat and many of their skills are not automatically turned on when they get them.

A lot of people like to knock this game as the ultimate care bear themepark, but most of the champ / elite combat can be quite challenging compared to even the hardest MMOs out there.

OP what are you worried about swtor killed you computer so you can't play the game anyway.    

Two negative posts about the game, one totaly false and made up.   This one i'm sure you thought out much better....

Anyway back to LotrO with the rest of your kind in monster play.

{mod edit}

 

^ be prepared OP be preapared. I am full agreement btw and how this has not been hotfixed is just beyond me

Why it should be hotfixed if it's not bug but just a bit harder mob. Maybe the player against this elite is too dumb? There is no bug as far as I know, just a tough fight. Please hate somewhere else, Puremalice, or is Rift that boring these days that you can spend your days bashing SWTOR?
