On Tuesday we praised the weekend heroics by the devs to help the players with the bugged 1-Star Hunt “Split-Ti”. Today we turn our attention towards the players and discuss how you yourself can help to make the situation for everyone more bearable. Many players successfully complete the Hunt, and it’s not just luck.
Like… How about not bugging the encounter in the first place? It’s actually rather simply to avoid the infamous state in which Split-Ti gets stuck. It seems the bug does not occur in case the summoner’s party deals the majority of damage to all spawns that appear during the fight. So either make sure no other players is around when luring the Hunt or go in with a potent group.
Some players also suggested fighting Split-Ti away from its spawn point. We’re not sure this one is crucial, but it can’t hurt.
Last but not least, this hint was added to the patch notes of August 17th:
Beware the Trolls
Unfortunately even doing everything right yourself is no guarantee. While you might know the details, other players that randomly walk by might not. For whatever reason a lot of players are still attacking Hunts of others, either not knowing that they won’t get any drops from it or trying to complete their weekly quest. If that happens with Split-Ti, bad luck. You can try to whisper folks but the damage might already have been done by then. And it doesn’t help with trolls that intentionally interfere. Additionally you obviously need to find an instance where the encounter does still work.
So is it possible to complete Split-Ti at this point? Absolutely. But you definitely need to be careful who is around. Try picking an empty instance and run with your highest DPS toon.
In any case we cross fingers that tomorrow’s maintenance will bring salvation and players will finally be able to complete Split-Ti without any trouble.
