Archaeology Nodes - 75% is borked

I have searched but have not found a reason or an explanation for this problem.

A big majority of Archaeology Nodes is unusable. I cant click them to gather, cant send my companion, they are just non-interacting.

Any clue to why this might be happening and if possible, any ETA on fixing this issue?

I''m utterly stuck levelling Artifice because it is impossible to get any materials (besides missions).

I believe it's a known bug. The node shows up on the map, but it's been harvested.

We have the same problem with scavenging, albiet less so because there's less sith/jedi that went scavenging.

Had a similar problem with scavenging on Dromund Kaas... Fortunately though I managed to get it just high enough to be able to scavenge the nodes on Balmorra.

I wonder if slicers are having the same problem...

What happens and how you can or any player bugs the node is:-

You begin the harvest and then get attacked or stop it half way through it locks the node to that player. If they do not go back and finish the harvest after being attacked it means no one else can use that node.

It was the same bug in Everquest 2 when they released the game but it was fixed within the first week of release. BioWare knew about this bug in Beta and it still not fixed.

If you wish to harvest do the P.L.A.N . Please Loot All Nodes. Something we are trying to get through to people on our server. At present it seems to be working now we know what the bug is and how it is caused.

Well i've only encounted about 6 bugged nodes in Coruscant, yes i'm only about 70 in Arch but i've got most of that from sending companions out on missions.

I understand that its inconvenient and should be fixed asap. But I fail to see a wall stopping you from leveling Artifice.

I believe it has something to do with the guy gathering before you NOT picking up the items because...

a) ... inventory is full, or
b) ... being impatient and only going for XP

I'm going to go with this sort-of... I have tried harvesting just after someone already did, and couldn't, so I finished of a quest and came back and the node had refilled...

Correct me if I'm wrong but the nodes don't disappear when they've been harvested, but will be un-harvest-able albeit visible until they re-fill. They will also still appear on your mini-map.

Well that's been my experience at least.
