Buggy quest? Friend of mine let out the loudest kek I have heard from him. He completed the quest in first day of the patch and he says it worked 100% fine. He even admitted that some of the challenges were a bit daunting feeling as he hasn't done any K-Drive for a quite a while and he is not even that good with K-Drive. Load screens between tasks are kind of mandatory for saving your progress. Do you REALLY want to just go for about 3 hours of game play and only with manual save then something happens that pretty much nullifies all of the progress you made in that 3 hours?
Spoilers, You don't want that. Biggest pain in the rear you can ever imagine is having something like that happen and nobody deserves it. K-Drives are working just fine for him maybe remember to holster your sidearm when you are done clearing nearby enemies. What comes on Sevagoth, pretty sure that is player choice whether you want to invest resources to piece of equipment. Or did this suddenly one day become not a player decision? If you like something and want to keep using it. Use your resources as you see fit. If you don't like something just max it out, throw it away and move on with your life.
Also pretty sure there are others too who also went through it just fine without any kind of bugs. My friend knows there are a lot of problems within the game, for one this game is huge time investment heavy game so if you don't like a game like that he definitely wouldn't recommend it. He likes this game but is open to talk about the problems it has. Because of the new update he has been cursing his forma situation quite a lot and still hating that he has to wait (Pretty much) entire day JUST for one. The new damage dealt calculation method on the nemesis enemies is just super annoying in his opinion and would advocate at least giving it a second thought.
Game's claustrophobic tile set design what comes on Yareli needs to be given a thought. Graxx tennogen items, MIGHT be bugging out the sisters of parvos and liches not to spawn with ephemera not confirmed yet but two cases he has heard where item conflict COULD be the cause. (Not confirmed yet but like I wrote two incidents of item conflict might have something to do with but it also could just be RNG being RNG)
The whole thing about 3 hours of game play was that if you go through that amount of time. You damn well want to have your progress saved. Friend of mine is close of the end of closed beta player and he has lots of stories of progress lost because of host migration or something else from there to here. Most of the loading screens you go through save the changes you make to your equipment etc. Friend of mine has gone through server connection loss a few times and had to make changes to his equipment again because of the server connection loss it didn't save them. He was very frustrated when he finally got a larvling that was going to spawn with Kuva Hek if he secret mercy killed it.
He some reason lost connection to server and was kicked out in to log in screen and guess what. He didn't get that kuva lich with Kuva Hek. Don't know how many he skipped to get it again but probably was more than 10. He speculated that it is probably client side issue though as he has strict nat because of certain ports on his end are not open.
