This really frustrates me. As someone on the small population side of a server who worked his tail off on Sunday to get a group together and wait 2 hours for this boss to respawn in a PvP Free For All Area...it feels like really bad customer service to expect us to re-do this.

I mean, I have the other 8 Codex Entries in my log. Including the one that gives credit for killing Urtagh. Surely you can grant the title.

I shouldn't have to waste an evening trying to catch his spawn and kill him again for a title I've already earned.
I couldnt agree more, i have actually sent a ticket in about it, only to get an automated response, its a disgrace that a CSR cannot grant if im honest whats worse is that they couldnt code a fix that said if you had XYZ then you get A, rather then forcing you to redo whats already done

Sure the fun is in the doing but i dont play on an overpopulated Server, i got all the level 50's on Tat last night together which too took a fair amount of organising we hit all 3 world bosses pvp'ed a bit but was lucky to take down 20 man ops group for one boss with a few imps thrown in just to make the fight even spicer

Problem is do the same 20 people (as thats all that play on my server) want to re-do all that again

No likely

Doesn't matter cause their fix didn't fix it either for the people that have 8/9 with no codex or title...

This is what I don't understand. Why do we have to kill the Bantha boss again? Why is that boss the only one that triggers the final codex entry? What if, after this patch, I killed the Bantha and then the other two bosses? Would I then have to go back and rekill the bantha boss because he's the one that triggers the final codex entry? Shouldn't killing any boss after the patch trigger the codex entry?

I don't think that he alone triggers the final codex entry. I think the 9th codex has a tracker built in and when you get all the previous 8, it pops up. I'm guessing that the 9th was tracking the others properly, just not the Bantha one.

The thing is, I'm not mad that it's buggy. Their Live Events team works in secret specifically so we don't have any warning about events. That means no players are testing this out on the Test Server. It's all done internally.

I can respect how that may cause unanticipated bugs.


What I don't like is when the fix requires I re-do the achievement I already worked hard to achieve.

This makes me a little annoyed since I have already killed Urtagh. They should find an easier solution that do not force us to redo it again. It is a pain in the behind to get an operation going and stressing to get the boss first before the Republic has a chance to arrive, which happened all day today.

No, there is no assumption (or, more appropriately, presumption) required. If you have 8 codex entries for the event, you have done everything needed to get the 9th and the title. Or, they casn simply check to see if you specifically have the three codex entries from the boss kils. If either condition is met, you've already earned the title. There's no reason bioware cannot fix this in a way that doesn't ask players to re-earn what should already be theirs, especially because on many servers finding the approrpiate group to do it, and finding the boss up is a problem.
