Making the Connection - Republic [STAGED WEEKLY] bugged?


Recommended Posts

EDIT: Oh how things can change in a day. In just a short day, we managed to piece together how to do this achievement from various sources as well as plenty of quest combinations. I will update this for your enjoyment.

You can use the steps below to do this achievement.

 

NOTE: When I'm listing quests in capital letters, always assume that I've done every bonus mission that is part of it. For some steps, doing the bonus missions is requisite.

 

0/1 Diverted Turret Placement from Stronghold One

 

To do this quest, you need to be able to get into Stronghold One, which means unlocking the quest INTO THE FIRE. You can do that by doing the quest TOO CLOSE TO HOME first. Then you need to hit the Abandoned Mining Mesa to cause chaos there and give the Regulators a reason to divert their troops. To do that, you need to do the quest REVERSE ENGINEERING. After that, take INTO THE FIRE and when you enter the instance, Jace will send you a message about how your work just got easier.

 

0/1 Gathered Information from Stronghold One on the Position of Pollus Avesta

 

You need to get into Stronghold One using the abovementioned route. Take TOO CLOSE TO HOME to unlock INTO THE FIRE. Then complete INTO THE FIRE to gain access to the Regulator's database. Then finish HOSTAGE RESCUE to rescue Pollus Avesta.

 

0/1 Regulators Diverted Troops from Gravity Hook Four Docking Ring to the Cartel Mining Mesa

 

Wreak havoc on the Cartel Mining Mesa by completing OPERATION: OVERWATCH. Then finish [HEROIC 4]: THE VIPER'S NEST to learn about the hostages the Regulators have taken. Then complete [HEROIC 2+]: COUNTERSTRIKE, whose bonus leads up to the Gravity Hook Four docking ring, where the Regulators have taken some more hostages. Upon entering the phase, you'll get a call from Jace that the mercs are chasing their own tails on the Cartel Mining Mesa.

 

EDIT: It would appear that this step is bugged atm and cannot be obtained. You get the message from Jace, you have to kill fewer enemies on the docking ring (they appear to have been diverted alright) but the step does not update :-(

 

0/1 Determined that the Perekta Mesa is Seismically Stable

The quest that leads to Perekta Mesa is AMONG THE RUBBLE. In that quest, you'll have to set up seismic scanners to determine the mesa's stability. You'll have to come back later and do the quest STONE AND STEEL and evacuate the trapped people to finish the questline on Perekta and get the achievement.

 

0/1 Learned About the Hostages on the Gravity Hook Four Docking Ring

 

Complete [HEROIC 4]: THE VIPER'S NEST and Jace will notify you of some hostages the Regulators took on Telemur Mesa. Complete [HEROIC 2+]: COUNTERSTRIKE and Jace will notify you of more hostages on the Gravity Hook Four docking ring. You'll get a bonus to rescue the people there.

 

0/1 Diverted Speeders from Regulators on Frinn Mesa to Westwater

You need to steal speeders from various Regulator camps on Frinn Mesa during the quest DOOR TO DOOR. Then you need to repair the speeders in the Westwater Settlement in the quest HOSTAGE RESCUE to get this achievement.

 

0/1 Unlocked the mission “Into the Fire”

 

This mission takes you into Stronghold One. To unlock it, you must complete TOO CLOSE TO HOME first.

 

0/1 Unlocked the mission “Signal Intelligence”

 

This mission takes you to Solida Hesk's estate. To unlock it, you must complete REVERSE ENGINEERING first.

 

0/1 Unlocked bonus objective “Securing the City”

 

To get this step, you must acquire the Flare Gun from the quest SIGNAL INTELLIGENCE. That, of course, requires doing REVERSE ENGINEERING as a prerequisite. When you've done SIGNAL INTELLIGENCE, take TAKING BACK TALAOS and you'll receive the bonus quest Securing the City upon picking up the Airstrike Targeting Equipment. For this bonus, you have to fire the flare gun in 4 different locations in the city to call in reinforcements.

 

0/1 Unlocked bonus objective “Reallocation”

 

This is the bonus objective to the final stage of STAGE 1, which takes place on Gravity Hook Seven and requires you to collect medical supplies from various crates scattered around the area. You can unlock this quest by accessing the Regulator database on Aboro Mesa, which is part of the quest TOO CLOSE TO HOME.

 

Well it would appear that this achievement has one bug that prevents us from obtaining it at this point. Hopefully, it will be fixed in an upcoming patch. But this only proves that their testers never attempted to complete this achievement.

Bump, so you can see this and complete the achievement. :cool:

 

0/1 Regulators Diverted Troops from Gravity Hook Four Docking Ring to the Cartel Mining Mesa

 

Did that order didn't get credit had the text box appear of Jace saying there chasing their tails but nothing unlocks

Same thing, I figured out how to do this on my own but found that it didn't update despite getting the Message from Jace Malcom and the less amount of enemies in the bonus area. I've sent in over 5 different tickets and every time they've said that they do not cover achievements. Oh Bioware I just want credit it because I did it. :(

Yeah, sorry, I tried it with another character and it's indeed bugged. But that has to be the correct order, since you get a message from Jace and there are really fewer enemies on the docking ring.

Yeah confirmed, got the message about the turrets, which are in fact not there, and still no completion. Reported the bug last week.

 

I just hope I won't have to repeat both heroics once the bug is fixed.

 

Only Order I havent tried at this point is H2 H4 OO

Meaning it's not bugged or you haven't tested it yet?

 

Yeah, I typed too fast and I miss a part of the reply. Last week it was still bugged however I need to try it again after the latest patch. I don't think they fixed it because there's no mention on the patch notes about it.

I'll run the weekly again tomorrow to check it.

I have to say it, I'm really really REALLY REALLY impressed by way BW decided to handle this bug

/sarcasm_off

 

While on Makeb, players no longer need to complete the mission step "Regulators Diverted Troops from Gravity Hook Four Docking Ring to the Cartel Mining Mesa" in order to be granted the "Making the Connection" Achievement.

 

So there was this step of achievement, it apparently worked for first week or two after release as some people say they've got it. Whole diverting troops even works when you reproduce steps correctly, only issue is that it does not count for achievement.

 

Easiest solution? Remove troublesome step from achievement requirements :rolleyes:
