Pylons forever bugged..?

Hello everyone,

Before the last patch to the Hardmode/Nightmare pylon exploit, normal mode pylons functioned as they should. Now, our guild has been forced to reset a 2nd time in a row on two different ways of completion because the South Pylon doesn't spin when it reaches the fourth tier. Has anyone else encountered this? Or has anyone else completed the pylons this week and could provide what they did to complete it? We're clearly doing something RIGHT for it to bug because if we were doing it wrong I'm sure it would work.

Oh bioware...

We completed it on normal last week, I don't see the issue I don't think the game has been patched since then.

We just did it tonight hard mode and normal. I think solving South South South North, is how we did it without any bugs.

Tonight we did nightmare to pylons and it bugged again, second week in a row could do anything on nightmare past pylons, normally i don't get mad, but losing gear 2 weeks in a row is ridiculous!!!!!!!!!

Im currently looking for more evidence on this but what i think it is that when there is a certain symbol on either 4th tier pylons it will become stuck. The symbol in question is the brown cross like symbol.

if you could watch out for this and pm what you find out.

Ok, as of right now there is a way to get around the bug. First, ALWAYS HIT THE LEFT BUTTON. if you hit the right button it will bug. Second, THE SOUTH PYLON NEEDS TO FINISH BEFORE THE NORTH. We just did it and had to wait for the south to finish each ring first then we could do the north.

The first one is wrong. You can solve the pylons using right only.

The second one is correct.

Using right only has never worked for us, it has bugged every single time. Never had a problem with left only.

We've never had issues solving in the S-S-S-N order.
