Hi folks,

Thanks for reporting the bug with the respawn time of the World Boss Primal Destroyer during the Feast of Prosperity Event.

Our team is aware of this bug. As mentioned in this post: Darth Malgus - Belsavis World Boss not respawning, this issue seems to occur (at least in one case) when players kite the Primeval Destroyer's adds away from the boss area after the boss has been killed. You should follow this new workaround while we're looking into it:
  • Make sure the adds are dead before killing the World Boss. - Updated workaround
    • Note: If you see another group fighting the world boss, and you want a piece, help them and focus ads to ensure you get your own boss after.
I'll update you in this thread when I have more information.

I mean, this exact bug was an issue last time Feast was around too, why hasn't it been fixed? It's a straight up blocker for the Feast WB daily. If you can't fix this you should make sure to always offer either Tatooine or Hoth WB as an alternative every time Belsavis WB is up, as it inevitably will bug out due to trolls or players who don't know about the issue.

This boss is either never there or respawning in 30 seconds, it's a broken mess.

All World Bosses should have a 5-10 minute respawn timer, no exceptions.

Also the respawn timer might have something to do with it, if boss tries to respawn while adds are still up then it apparently breaks, and since the respawn timer is so short on this particular boss then players might not actually need to kite the adds, just fail to kill them in about 30 seconds after the boss dies.

Several people have confirmed this "workaround" does not always work. BW managed to fix this last year so if it's the same issue surely you have the fix available? Until it's fixed, surely a better idea is to remove this world boss/quest from the feast dailies?

Someone correct me if something changed with Belsavis WB Primal Destroyer but in my experience the mechanics dictated the most efficient way to down this WB is to pull the 3 adds away from the boss (not too far) while the rest of the group downs Primal. Once Primal is down then finish the adds. If the group takes out any of the three adds before Primal Destroyer goes down then a huge AoE knockback with damage is applied to everyone in the operations group.

So basically BioWare seems to be saying as a workaround we need to down the three adds before Primal and just deal with the AoE damage that will result when each add gets killed.

"RP'ing is super important, right? As a Star Wars game, people being able to immerse themselves in that world is very, very important. But having an instance or a server type dedicated to that doesn't necessarily like enforce a ruleset of you having to RP there. So what we felt was more important was making sure that we can build toolsets for RP'ers, things like being able to make your own chat channels and work within those chat channels and things like that. So know that it's very important to us that RP'ers have the tools they need to roleplay but we didn't feel that actually separating an instance type just for it was necessarily the right solution. So you're not at all forgotten. We definitely want to make sure that RP'ers are accounted for in those changes that we made."

Still not respawning properly after another week of Feast WB recipe priority go-around
I'm currently residing on both US Servers - Satele Shan & Star Forge - formerly from The Harbinger and before that Gauntlet of Kreshh.

Second day in a row that Belsavis shows up on the mission terminal. Second day in a row that we can't get our kill and advance our weekly.

If you are too incompetent to fix the bug regarding the adds, at least REMOVE THE WB FROM THE POOL OF DAILIES.

For the past 12 hours at least there have been no spawns on any instance of Satele Shan. Kinda makes the event hard to do...

Update: Still no spawns on any of the instances from before, over 24 hours later. We managed to get another instance to open up which thus then had the boss available. Server-wide we got in no more than I'd say a dozen clears of him before it bugged again.

The Belsavis world boss is also bugged in all instances of Star Forge.

How is it that every event has bugs that you never fix...How is this the second year that this is an issue for this boss. What is causing it to happen is not relevant, the fact that it is and you are aware of it and never did anything to fix it is. I don't understand how you don't know how to fix your own game...you just always say, "We're looking into it". How can your team be so incompetent that you don't know how to fix issues in YOUR game. We are paying you for a service, one which you are not providing. Any other mmo would have taken the servers down as soon as they knew about the problem, and 30 mins later they would have fixed it and servers would be back up. You are the only game that even when it happened at last year's event, so you had an entire year "To look into it", its still happening.
