Notable Issues

  • Changing Nation Allegiance can very likely break quest and mission progression.
  • Building more than one relic weapon at a time is highly inadvisable. Switchstix gets his wires crossed and can’t handle more than one request. Do not start a weapon and not finish it, and then start another.
  • The BCNM Area “The Ashu Talif” does not play well with pets.  As such, do not attempt any Aht Urghan Missions or quests (including Mission AU15 “The Black Coffin” or the Corsair AF Hat quest Against All Odds) in this zone as Beastmaster, Summoner, Puppetmaster, or Dragoon.
  • Always speak to all NPCs/???s/etc until they stop giving expected messages for quests and missions.
  • Mog Safe, Mog Safe 2, and Storage work, and Storage is upgradeable through furnishings.  Furnishings should ONLY be used in Mog Safe 1.  Furnishings in Mog Safe 2 can and often do screw up Storage, causing items to disappear.  Please take extreme caution when upgrading Storage through Furnishings.
  • Some Notorious Monsters from the Treasures of Aht Urhgan and Wings of the Goddess expansions are either not coded or their drops are not coded.
  • Some Empty Notorious Monster battlefields are coded, and others are being worked on.
  • Royal Jelly (BCNM) is not coded yet.
  • Puppetmaster, while coded and working, does not have access to all of its attachments.  Some Automaton attachments are known to cause major server stability issues so they were removed until they work properly.
  • There are some items that are currently unobtainable on Supernova, but that list is ever-dwindling!

Mission-specific

  • Occasionally, players will lose connection or client crash during some Chains of Promathia missions.  This most often happens during PM 6-4 One To Be Feared, 7-5 The Warrior’s Path, and during the final cutscene of the Chains of Promathia expansion.  Best solution in either case is to regroup and redo the mission until completion.
  • The same can occur in some later Treasures of Aht Urhgan Missions.
  • Assault Missions are not coded.  As such, many items reliant on Assault ranks and Assault Points are not currently obtainable.
  • Limbus works, but is very much in a “Your-Mileage-May-Vary” state.  Do not be surprised if there are issues with chests and various floors.

Quest-specific

  • The quest “A Boy’s Dream” (Paladin Artifact – Gallant Leggings) has a bug where NPC Ailbeche (Southern San d’Oria) will not accept a Giant Shell Bug if the player trading already has the item Odontotyrannus in his/her possession.  Simply drop the Odontotyrannus, then trade the Giant Shell Bug, and catch another Odontotyrannus in the same manner and the quest will proceed as normal.
  • The first limit break quest “In Defiant Challenge” works like it does in 2007 on Supernova.  This means that acquisition of the limit break items has to be from their respective mobs.  The ???s that exist in retail don’t exist here.xx
