"Collected Writings of Tiethiagg" mission is too tedious!

The mission "Collected Writings of Tiethiagg" for the The Grand Acquisitions Race event is just annoying having to do. I don't really understand the 2 minute time limit not to mention the 1 hour wait for it to reset whether you succeeded or failed, perhaps the prior would make sense for the long wait. It's very impossible to even try to complete it when 20 other players are around you interacting with the consoles themselves. You have the mirrors and laser positioned right but then other players keep moving them so they can do it.

Does it really take an hour to reset?
WHY!!!!!!!

My internet dropped doing this and I come back a few minutes later and can't click anything.
So I abandoned the bonus quest and still can't click anything, nor get the bonus quest back! I don't especially want to redo as I've sunk a few hours into the prior quests of the chain...

1 hour reset? Uhhh... I don't think so.
I suppose getting a lyrium tattoo of breasts on my chest would make things better...

The timer ran out and I couldn't click any consoles after that, so I tried deleting the bonus quest, because there was NO option to reset it.
I have been waiting to get the bonus quest again for almost 2 hours now, while running around the room, leaving entering etc... nothing works.


Don't delete the bonus quest.

what, how could you fail at such an easy puzzle?
I do agree the puzzle should be phased out tho

Have you tried clicking on the datapad next to the body again?

I ran out of time the 1st time aswell. Picked it up again same as the 1st time. If someone else is doing it you get a red message about your escort or something like that, wait 2min till he's done and try again.

I don't think the buttons are clickable for people not on the mission so I can't see how others would mess it up for you either.

How can you fail at that? It's a fairly simple puzzle. Inside ring yellow, middle ring purple, outer ring green. It even has the answer on the floor next to the dead guy.

edited a line for clarity:

Hi there! If you ever get frustrated and delete a bonus mission during the Grand Acquisitions Race's main mission, the easiest way to get it back is to reset the main mission for this event. It will look like your items have disappeared, but you will get them back as soon as you reset the mission. You'll still retain all of your previous items and you will only lose the progress that you've made towards the current item that you're pursuing. Hope that helps!

This is absolutely the worst quest setup ever.

20-30 people packed into this tiny room. Everyone is trying to click on everything. Then groups and even ops start forming up. With Ops only the group with the clicker gets credit. Rotation mess-ups.

I eventually got into a group that successfully finished it. However, I was level 39 and everyone else was 50. I didn't get credit; couldn't loot the box. I noticed all the quests so far sets it to your current level. If I didn't get credit because of level difference, this quest is even more borked up. Is this a bug or working as intended? How are people with levels supposed to finish this? Be lucky with my clicks against 20 other people?

This tiny room should have been instanced or other rooms allocated for different level ranges.
