View Full Version : Olympus waypoint should/should not be shown on waypoint selection screen?

Guys, I have a little problem with regards to the olympus level. I already am using my 2nd char(Harbinger) and just finished typhon last night. but one thing bothers me.. My 1st char(Conqueror) had the Olympus level still showing whenever I try to TP( of course, its not possible..) but it is there nonetheless.. But my harbinger has this skipped/space between orient and hades levels.. Did I skipped anything/done wrong? The only diff is that during my 1st char, I died about 10x before finishing Typhon and my 2nd had him on the 1st run. I'm a perfectionist kind of guy and I don't want to settle with this kind of bug/glitch.
Thanks in advance for the replies!:)

I dunno what the deal is, but in the database there's an olympus portal that I don't see anywhere in olympus. I would guess that in an earlier version of the game, you were able to portal to olympus, but maybe the devs thought it made it too easy to farm typhon, so they replaced it with a giant health-fountain the size of a portal (lazy map makers ;)).
I'd actually love to see that portal restored, as it means you can farm typhon more easily when you want to, instead of having to labor through to get to him, and then feel like you have to power-farm him to make it worth the effort.

Here are the screens.. This is a comparison between my 2 recent chars.. See my 1st post for the details.

The only characters I have that don't show the olympus portal are ones that never went to olympus as part of a quest--these are mostly my defiled characters and my test characters that have skipped stuff.
So, I got no clue why a legit character would have that.

I think it disappears on my toons after I visit Act 4. Anyway, there's no portal there, so no real use to add have it. I think it's more a case of sloppy programming instead of a bug.
BUt I do think either the actual portal should be restored, or the portal in the map should be removed. The current situation is just ugly - I've been looking for that portal on Olympus ya know.
I think it needs to stay there because when you portal out there you can atleast get back else you get the secret passage thingy you can portal out but nog in again ;)

Well, thanks for the replies! :rockon:
I'm actually tempted to use defiler on my 1st char, making a copy of him,(cause he's the one who's with the complete waypoints), and making that copy a Harbinger. Though I admit it will take a lot of work considering the fact that the two have diff stat distributions and skills.. oh well! I guess I will just have to live with it!:(

There is no need to copy the characters.
Using the defiler, you can enable all waypoints for all characters if you want to.
If you just want the Olympus spawn point, you can also set the spawn point to the Olympus fountain using Defiler. Spawn there, portal out and resume playing. That should show up Olympus in your portal screen.

Or if you do want to make a copy too have acomplete quest log available you do not need defiler. Just need to copy the files directly. Then if you get lost quest file bug, you can restore it without defiler
