    Very reassuring to know we're a small handful only... the kind of thing that makes your wife go "What have you done this time?" :finger:

    Just kidding. Having an early lunch then. Cheers A-team and gl everybody :cowboy:

    Hey Everyone.

    The solution has been implemented for those who had issues getting into the instances.

    I need you to please follow these instructions.

    1. Check your mission logs to see if the old Gold Rush mission is still there and please abandon it. You should be able to take the new mission.
    2. If you are experiencing the same issue, please relog and see if the mission appears now and follow instruction 1.
    Please remember that Category 1 is only available to avatars with less than 125hp, so please choose your instance carefully.

    PLEASE REMEMBER TO READ THE RULES!!!

    If you abandon your mission half way through the event, we CANNOT replace your lost points.

    If you havent read it yet, here is a link -------> Link to read about the awesome event.

    I hope this answers your questions. If not, leave a post and I will see what I can do for you.

    Happy Gold Rush :D

    Very interesting event - basically an event on Ark every month for the next 7 months.
    Makes me want to move here even more.
    Maybe some day I'll leave Caly and visit - only 2.5 more levels and I may come say hi :)

    My points were not reset, I was short of 500 points for 2k and I got it + got the evade reward. Maybe you accidentally removed those when it asked you to remove the old GR missions?

    Hm, weird. I was looking forward to finish it but it wasn't in the log, had to accept it again.

    Ok, false alarm then, maybe I accidentally abandoned it since then.

    I'm running to the same problem - quest giver is broken! I select category 1 which returns me to the first screen,
    then I walk over to the goldman cat 1 guys but doesn't let me in.
    relogging multiple times doesn't work either.
    There's no mission in my mission log for Gold Rush.
    I had one from last year with 150 pts in it - but abandoned it because the quest giver said I needed to.
    Gold rush still doesn't work - Please Fix ASAP!
    Thank you!

    Man I took a warp over here from Caly just to play Gold Rush tonight too! :(

    [ and maybe the Ark team can be more direct in their answers and replies: will there be mining events too: Just say YES - geez! ]

    Yay! it finally works!
    ***You have to wait a whole hour after you abandon last year's gold rush Mission!!!

    A hint at roughly what day/time to arrange your life around it would be helpful ^^

    Edit: Totally forgot, you once had this Android app for push notification...

    I think I know how this happened cause I just had it happen to me. There's the main GR mission (Gold Rush 2016 Cat. # - 1/7) and then there's the IFN Challenge - Magurg Breeder #.

    I only saw the IFN Challenge and abandoned that. Couldn't get the mission so I relogged. I still couldn't get the mission so I went through the mission list again and found the main mission. I abandoned that and could get the new missions.
    ...and lost the minor progress I had since previous event.

    Things like this just puts me off. GR doesn't happen often enough to keep details like this in my failing memory bank that is my brain.

    Edit: At least I could take the new IFN Challenge mission. I still can't get into Cat 1 and I get no error messages.

    Edit 2: Re-did the steps suggested by staff and got both missions. Still, lost the minor progress I had. Not amused.

    Do NOT abandon the Magurg Breeder mission. That mission does not seem to be affected.


    Actually after thinking about things, I actually like the fact that the current GR is hunting only.

    Last GR, I was doing mining only and didn't have much time to take part in hunting. There are only so many hours a day that someone can play .....

    This way, if hunting and mining are separate, I guess I should be able to do both!

    Maybe, just maybe it would be a good idea for the A-Team to mention this in the future as a reminder. They are quite good at reminding us of how we should not abandon the GR mission during the event because we will lose points. Why not add another "disclaimer" about the actual Magurg Mission? Seems like at least two players (idiots? me included) lost our Magurg progress due to these "abort mission" errors we faced.
