Still no solution for the respec bug?

Dear Funcom,

Can you please give us an update on the status of the bug that causes random recipes to be deleted from your feats when you respec using either yellow lotus potion and/or potion of bestial memory?

This bug has been in the game since the official launch of Siptah and even though it has been reported by many players it is not clear to me whether you are working to find a solution to this problem or if you opted to ignore it as long as you can’t determine the cause of the problem.

Please, I want to respec, but I don’t want to lose my character’s progress.

I share your frustration on this issue. Personally I feel it should be one of the highest priorities on the ‘to fix’ list. And this is coming from a ps4 player who…well lets just say we have some technical issues going on on our platform.

I actually pointed out that this bug fix was still missing in the 2.5 patch notes, but instead of giving a mature response I was told that my comment was “off-topic” and my post was deleted.

That’s what you get for trying to make this game better. I remember when everyone sang Funcom’s praises because they supposedly listened so well to player feedback. I don’t know what happened, but in my opinion that’s no longer the case. I feel like they’re pretending this problem doesn’t exist by refusing to talk about it.

All I’m asking for here is an update, something like: “We are aware of this problem and we are trying to fix it, please bear with us.” That’s all. Why won’t they do that?

It’s being looked into.

Do you have insider knowledge of that? At this point I was starting to assume it was just intentional and we should just be careful how we spec.

No sarcasm here, I’m not browsing through the entire forum and don’t think I’ve seen streams for a long time so I’m just assuming things based on experience.

Thank you, I hope you’re right, but it makes me wonder: since when are they “looking into it”, why is it taking so long and why won’t they talk about it?

My dear @Boreas, first of all welcome back. I personally want to thank you for bringing this up the last time, I didn’t knew for this issue, since Playstation didn’t had these updates back then. We both know that the post that was “off topic” was a little salty, but your whole frustration surely had a good excuse for being this way, I don’t blame you.
I am really happy you are back in the game and the forum, I am really sure that you will find ways to continue without using these potions for awhile, plus since @Multigun said what he said I would take his word as a solution in this post. I believe that sooner or later we will listen or read an announcement about this issue.
Welcome back again m8, really happy to have you here.

Ps. I really like the new avatar, I think the white sheep was not so Boreas at all :wink:.

Patience.

Funcom is slow. Just wait 3 months without respeccing. Then you can expect a patch that fixes it but also breaks warpaints.

While you are waiting on a response or fix you could set a goal to learn the potion of beastial memory. This is only dropped at the pool of grey ones from weapon schematics. It’s a small chance drop. It took my clan almost 180 statues to finally get it. If you don’t want to grind the statues then you could ask some tenure players on server if they have it and have them make you a ton. Hopefully this helps!

As @Croms_Faithful already noted: with potion of bestial memory there is also a chance to lose recipes and - if I understand correctly - even when you go into admin mode on private servers.

In other words: if you don’t want to lose recipes, don’t respec, period.

To be honest in exile lands on 3728 I use attribute potions almost all the time and I didn’t loose anything, I think that this bug is more Siptah bug. There are players that transfered from exile lands to Siptah and complain that they lost some exile lands recipes after some days, yet @Frillen and @Ragnaguard that did some tests didn’t mention something like that. In Siptah I farm these potions because I am slow, I don’t have midnight alchemist yet, but I have them in the fridge, I don’t use any of them, I am afraid of :rofl::rofl::rofl:. Thanks again for the warning m8, nice to see you around :wink:

I haven’t lost a single recipe no matter which map I transfered to or from :slight_smile:
I think the loss of recipes are related to the yellow lotus potion and possibly also the potion that only reset feats, not sure about this, but from what I hear it is a problem when resetting feats, not solely during or after a transfer.
However transfering a character makes you lose all obelisks, journey steps, known places on a map and all learned emotes - My guess is that they are looking into these things, but it may take some time before a fix will be released, so be aware, there are some drawbacks to character transfer currently :slight_smile:

Hmm I just transferred from one Official Siptah server to another one and didn’t experience any losses.

I did. I transferred my toon from Exiled Lands to Siptah, and everything was working great with the feats and recipes learned in EL. Then, they disappeared once I used a yellow lotus potion. Other people have noted such losses.

If you guys had actually read this thread you would have known that the loss of recipes has nothing to do with server transfers but with potions.

Yeah most don’t or miss read/understand but it has nothing to do with transfer just potions but just curious does the attributes reset potion also remove feats or just those that affect feats?

I recently hoped in ios server to get recipes from there , and returned to my main on sunday evening. My character kept ALL recipes from ios (but i see i cannot craft grey weapons at all -tried both forge and bs benches in exiled, and even though i have the feats the weapons show nowhere-dunno if its a bug or intended behaviour) .

BUT i lost the two recipes i had delved in exiled lands BEFORE i transfer in ios. The black knight armour and the wild druid armour. And i had to delve again to regain them.
All recipes from fragments learnt in ios and the recipes from vaults or placed (eldarium chests, oar, wrecker etc) stayed intact and can be used, but for some reason the delving i did on exiled lands got affected when i returned.

Edit: i used no potions for respecing at all

We have read the post, yet we inform you that some persons lost their knowledge even from transferring also, without using any potion. We had some complaints when this feature started on pc. I remember especially a guy that he lost his knowledge ten days after (at least that’s what he said). All the complaints I read so far was from El to Siptah, not the other way. Now you can tell me why someone will try the Siptah to EL? It is too soon for that. But nop, for a pc player that has Siptah so many months (you for example) it is a cool decision to go to EL with all the Siptah recipes :wink:. Yet none of the complaints were about Siptah to EL. At least so far :rofl::rofl::rofl:.
