Can't get Cata quests
Return to board index
I tried to post this yesterday but (as I am fairly "technologically challenged") either I didn't get it accomplished or I just can't find it again. Please accept my apology.
My problem. Hadn't played for a bit over 3 yr. Re-upped a few weeks ago. Been mucking around getting the feel of the game and my toons. Now I'd like to take my 81 mage into Cataclysm. I bought Cata and MoP when I rejoined but the Hero's Call Board in SW has a white "!" over it and I can't seem to figure out what I've done --- or not done --- that won't allow her to proceed. Can anyone shed any light on this for me?
Here's your previous post
, I found it via your profile :) (the link in the upper right with your name)
Like Alkony, I'm curious how you got to level 81 without Cataclysm quests or dungeons. It's possible with WotLK content, but it takes quite a while.
Did you maybe use a Cataclysm trial back then? This could explain why you already were quite close to level 81, and why you don't see a quest on the Board - maybe you already did those.
Go to the
in Stormwind and check whether there are portals there - if yes, then you already did the introductory quests for Hyjal and/or Vashj'ir. Enter one of those zones and look around whether you can find where you left - maybe you still have quests in your log (L)
One possibility is that your account does not have the expansions that you purchased applied to it. It can take up to 72 hours for your payment to process. Another possibility is that your payment failed and you have to determine why that happened and correct the payment information. Check your account management and see if that helps.
Edit: another possibility is that you applied the expansions to a different account, as you can have up to 8 subscriptions on the same Battle.net, it is possible that you have selected the wrong WoW to play. Look at your account management page and you may see that you have WoW1 and WoW2 and you may be selecting the wrong one when entering the game.
TY! TY! TY! To all who helped me with this issue. The portal on Earthspire took me directly to Nordrassil. I'm still not sure why I can't get the quests from SW but that's another issue. I'll not go into why I know I had not been there before --- basically I quit before Cata was released --- dying husband and a full time job kept me too busy to play.
I was hesitant to rejoin as I'm not young and I was not a very good player 3 years ago. However, I'm having a good time --- not bothering anyone --- and being kept out of trouble. 8-) I'm already 1/2 way to 82. It's cool that you don't have to RUN back to your corpse now...
Quest safely, everyone.
I quit before Cata was released
Hmm, are you sure that you never played Cata before, if only as a Trial? Or did you lend the account to someone else? It sounds weird that the portal was already there, it only opens up after the introductory quest.
In any case, I advise you to change your password - which you should do regularily, anyway.
I'm of the opinion that you absolutely must have played even for a tiny bit after Cataclysm was released. For one, you're level 81 already. You stop earning XP at level 80 without Cataclysm activated. And two, the earthshrine portal is already activated and Stormwind gives you no quests. That could only happen if you completed the starting quests into Hyjal.
If it wasn't you personally, then perhaps someone who share the account with played on your character for some time.
Wasn't there a seven-day trial at one point? Or maybe even a Cataclysm trial before fully upgrading? You could've played then and completely forgotten about it.
You all are somewhat missing the point. The game seems to recognizing the OP as Cata eligible for everything but quests. Obviously there are many ways for the OP to get XP past 80 without doing quests and I would assume the OP is advancing her level by doing some of them. That being the case it seems like the only thing to do is to turn in a ticket.
No, they certainly have just completed the introductory quests already.
I didn't mean to get anyone upset. One thing I can guarantee is that NO ONE other than myself used my account. I changed my PW when I re-upped a few weeks ago. My level when I rejoined was 80...about 3/4 of the way to 81.
Now, I did take advantage of a "play for free" time before I officially reactivated my account. And, yes, at my age <EG> I have been known to forget things. I have to admit that when I got to Nordrassil it did look a bit familiar. I had to get to the "Ring of Cinders" (?) before there was a quest available--- finding charred pieces of a staff.
I'll follow this through a bit more when I have the time to hang on the phone to talk to someone at Blizzard. I tried to open a ticket and was met with a list of things to choose --- none of which actually fit my issue. That's when you folks were called in.
Again --- thanks for getting me into the part of the game I wanted to be in. I'll report anything from Blizzard when i talk to them.
p.s. What is an "OP"?
OP is original poster, in this case, you.
Glad you found where you had left off. Enjoy Hyjal, I had a lot of fun there. :)
Thank you all for your patience with me.
I was hoping that "OP" was not something too derogatory. 8-) (Just joking.)
On to Hyjal!
I'm finding the forums (and the individuals on them) quite interesting and helpful. Sorry I've not availed myself of them when I play before.
Sorry about the original post, Alkony. As I mentioned I'm a bit technologically challenged. Thanks for "finding" me.
There's a "bot" in Nordrassil who wants to take me to a dungeon. As he seems to be an upstanding character, quite good looking (though a bit short and younger than I usually date), and has assured me that we'd have a great time, I think I'll go. If you don't hear from me again you'll know that my former reputation of being the pits in dungeons has held true and I've been devoured by something unmentionable. 8-)
In case there is interest. Opened a ticket. Reply from a GM was that since I opened the portal, the earlier quest was no longer available. The gray marker I see now is likely for"Twilight Highlands" quest. I was not on-line when GM got my ticket so was not able to talk in detail. She called the Hero's Board "breadcrumbs." Supposedly to lead you to the portal?
In any case I must have done more to enter Cataclysm than I remember.
Thanks for everyone's help. sorry to have been a pain --- if I was.
p.s. Hyjal sure is full of leaves! You can get lost there very easily. 8-)
