My friend and I have been trying to specifically unlock Mechagon for a while now, and, as of today, we did everything. Every requirement. Every prerequisite quest. Every reputation requirement. We did every known step. We have followed this guide - https://www.wowhead.com/guide/mechagon-junkyard-tinkering#quest-unlocking-mechagon-part-2 - so closely, that there’s no way I missed a step. Today was the day we finally got every single thing done leading up to the point of picking up the quest, Legends of Mechagon, including, ofc, picking up AND turning in Rumors of Mechagon to Gazlowe to even be able to pick up Legends of Mechagon in the first place.
Yet, I can’t pick it up. There is simply NO quest available to be picked up from Gazlowe. I have now tried this on multiple characters, and I can’t do it on any of them. However, my friend, who I did every step with, can pick up the quest. There should be no difference here since we did everything together. She even tried to share Legends of Mechagon with me, and it says I’m not eligible to pick up the quest. But, that doesn’t make ANY sense… because, we should pretty much have the same exact progress since we did it all together.
And, it seems that, Blizzard thinks they have fixed this. Soooo, then why can’t I even pick up the quest? Why is it my friend, who did every step I did, can pick it up? But I can’t? I mean, I’d love to post in that thread to tell that blue that they seem to have NOT fixed it, but since my text ain’t in fancy yellow, I can’t do that. So maybe someone here can help with this thread? Cause I’m out ideas. My friend is out of ideas. Simply don’t know what else to do, or what I could have done wrong. The only logical solution seems to be that this is a bug but… Blizzard over here saying they “fixed” it. So what’s going on here?
Pretty close to unsubbing after all that work, TBH…
90% of the times theres something you missed weather its missing a step not being high enough of a lvl not having low level tracking on id also get ur friend to post here and a blue. Can take a look at it in the morning.
Ok well, I’m level 70? And I have others as well, who are also level 60-70. So. Yeah, don’t know what to tell you. But I did every step. I read the guide about 300 times. My friend and I never did anything seperate, so. Yeah. Don’t know what to tell you but. I’m about to unsub if I can’t even access an entire portion of the game for… what… the rest of time? Hahah. I don’t like playing a game I’m completely locked out of certain content for because of a problem that suspiciously pops up right after Blizzard makes a post about allegedly “fixing” the EXACT quest I cannot pick up. Don’t you think that’s a little sus?
There’s no other step once you unlock Nazjatar World Quests and are able to accept Rumors of Mechagon. This is according to the Wowhead guide linked on the support article on this site and multiple comments. OP completed those steps. But the NPC has no quest.
Well, allegedly, Gazlow gives you Legends of Mechagon right after turning in rumors? That is where my friend picked up the quest, right after she turned in rumors with me. I did not receive any follow up quest whatsoever after turning in rumors on both characters.
She even tried to share the quest with me. And it says I’m not eligible for it to be shared with me. Which was the scariest part because we did every step together, and I ran out of leads after that.
I mean, you can wonder about it. But it shouldn’t matter. I already did all of that on Elfinborn. Who, as stated before, also cannot pick up the quest. Also, as previously stated, my friend was able to pick up the quest. We did every step together. However, if you must know, I did suspect phasing to be a problem. So I did everything I could without signing up for 2 months of dying from boredom of doing the entire troll zone questline. AGAIN. No thanks.
Perhaps when the staff gets back in the morning, one of our SFAs can take a peek into things. They’re not in office 24/7, but are usually good about trying to see what the issue may be. And if they’re unable to see with their toolkit, they can then try and advise you in the best way to proceed. Even when hotfixes go out, sometimes it may take a bit for it to run through the systems. It may simply be that it’s still in the process of stretching itself out to all the accounts and whatnot. Or if it’s a missed quest or phasing from something else, hopefully one of the SFAs can see that and get you pointed in the proper direction.
I’m sorry it’s not an immediate response and fix for right this moment though.
Uhhh, looks more like it didn’t, because I got excited from your comment and just checked bnet, only to not see an update available. So, you must be talking about earlier “hotfix”? From like. 12 hours ago? If you read my posts fully, that should fill you in to the situation here. Lookin’ kinda grim I guess.
Except this. Kinda gives me some hope. Thank you for being the only person to give even a little bit of it to me here hahah, and I hope you’re right! Because I don’t mind waiting for another hotfix tomorrow or something, just as long as I have some hope. I haven’t had the best experiences with Blizzard support. The automated kind, that really doesn’t provide a whole lot of hope.
P.S. Changed the title to reflect that this is still potentially broken after today’s update. Just to try and reduce confusion from people not reading past the title.
