Catalyst - get infected by a Rakghoul....

Anyone else having problems getting infected by Rakghouls on Taris? Tried for over an hour to get infected with the Rakghoul virus. I see the "blue" flash that would make me think I got infected... but.... don't get infected.

Tried even just standing there letting them beat on me until I am almost dead and then killing them. See the flashes... but still no infection.

Haven't noticed a forum for bugs/etc.... so just posting here to see if anyone else has seen or had this problem.

When I played a tank I had to give up on that quest however as a DPS or a healer seemed ok and I got infected quickly.

Well... I found the search function for the forums.... at the top so wasn't seeing it... used to seeing it at the bottom... anyways....

Found that this has happened before and that resetting the quest seems to fix it... not abandoning it... but resetting it.

Will have to try that tomorrow when I play again.

Which rakghouls are you letting attack you?
You need the big red ones (labeled as strong), not the (normal) grey ones.
Stelios - Sentinel
<Nostrum Dolus>
<Tomb of Freedon Nadd>

You do not need the big red ones even if they seem to be easier to catch it from.
Last time I did this quest (last week) I got it from the very first normal rakghoul I attacked.

If it bugs out though I assume no rakghoul is good enough.
However, if the quest works as intended any rakghoul will do.

Yup any Rakghoul is good. If the mission doesn't update once bitten, reset and you should be all good. All 3 of my characters who have done this quest have had to reset to get the infection to register.

The normals do not infect you. I have done this quest a bunch of times. Strong or higher infect you.

Possibly the weaks were wellying on your companion. I have no trouble getting infected without going near a strong mob - once I have reset.

No they were not going after my companion cause I would dismiss them before doing the quest

Oh well, maybe they changed the mission then. I just did it back to back this week on two new alts and a pack of wee ones with no mommy ghoul infected me fine.
