Staff of the Triumverate - speech does not advance after archivist visit

**Game mode:**Online Private
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvP
Region: US / North America

The awakened staff of the Triumverate does not advance its speech after visiting the archivist. This has now happened on the past two servers I’ve been on.

He goes into how the place looks bad like the fall of Valusia and says “oh there’s the archivist” etc etc.

I have talked to the archivist, listened to his speech, learned map room, went back to my settlement, and the staff continues to talk about the archivist instead of progressing the story line.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Awaken the staff
  2. Have him talk about the archivist
  3. Visit the archivist and talk to the archivist
  4. Return to the settlement and the staff continues to talk about the archivist.

Any mods

Wait, is it supposed to? I never got anything new, on any server, with any of my characters, after the “fall of Valusia” line. Ever. I didn’t even know it was supposed to change after that.

Hey @auticus

Thanks for the feedback, it’s been relayed to our team so they can look into it.


It is the same result on a vanilla server and with Age of Calamatious.

Yeah its supposed to give you a hint into the next piece of the puzzle you need to find to free yourself. It used to do this a while back, I’ve just noticed the past couple servers I’ve been on since spring that it doesn’t. As I know what all the pieces are it hasn’t been a big deal but we have some new people on our server now and it would be a great help to them.

that’s news, I assumed it supposed to lead you to archivist and that’s it


I’m experiencing the same behavior but, has it ever behaved any differently?


Yes it used to not get stuck on the archivist and guide you through getting all of the items you need.

I think it told a bunch of different stories once, randomly changing when activated, but now it only repeats the first one over and over again.

I play the game for 2 years now, and the story never advanced past the archivist.
How did I end up with these expectations …


For as long as I can remember, the staff has always been how it is now.

Must be like the sandstorm bug, where it’s been broken for so long people have forgotten that that’s not how it is supposed to work.
