Bounties act 1 Glitches(1)Category: PTR Bug ReportsMarch-3-2015 3:39 PM PST (8 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
I was playing through act 1 bounties to see any problems or glitches. Found 2. One was in the Cathedral to kill a boss. The boss appeared twice. Same name approximately same location (like 10+ feet away.) Gave proper credit for first kill. The second was odd as it must be a new bounty. I have not seen this come up before. It was in the area of the Spider Queen. You have to destroy these certain egg sacks (6 is what I had to do) Various mid level spiders attack you and appear as Skulls on your HUD. But, they appear for a second or two then disappear. As do the yellow indicators for the egg sacks. This made this a pain as I had to go over the entire map to find them. When you do, you have to stand next to them, if you can with all the baddies attacking you, till a blue fever bar appears and the egg sack will explode. Different sacks release rare baddies or a trapped person. If you can fix the HUD glitch where the sacks are located and the fever bar of exploding them, it is a different but fun bounty. I was playing at T3. Also found it easier to get on server at that level.

Thanks for helping us catch these bugs, LordKalderon! We've seen lots of helpful feedback from those trying out the new Exploration bounties on the PTR, which we're passing on to the dev team. Your diligence in reporting issues is appreciated. :)

Aside from squishing bugs (including those mentioned above), we also have some improvements planned for how your targets are identified with this new bounty type, so you should be able to spot them more quickly on the mini-map.

We're looking forward to hearing other kinds of feedback on Exploration bounties, too. For instance, what do you like and not like about them, and why? And what other scenarios in the game do you think would be a good fit for this type of bounty?

I particularly enjoyed the new A5 bounty "Gift of Rathma" had a very Necro feel to it, and you get Skellies to fight by your side throughout the bounty, which was a nice touch given the graveyard setup and the Rathma necro reference

Yeah, definitely! I'm a big fan of Diablo lore, so seeing references to the books, especially characters like Zayl, is a nice surprise. Rathma reference for the win! :)
