We are aware that there is the occasional problem with people being able to start their Legacy missions after defeating the last Plague Heart on the map. You will know you have defeated the blood plague in your zone when your Primary Objective changes to Promote a Leader or Define your Legacy. It is also communicated that all Plague Hearts are defeated through character dialogue. The character will say something about this Plague Heart being the last one. There is also generally some chatter about defeating the blood plague after its defeat.
If you are certain you have defeated the blood plague, then we are aware of a couple of situations in which players can be blocked from starting their Legacy mission.
The first scenario is that there is an active Leader mission (or sometimes a mission for another community member's personal arc) for someone in the community. Start that mission - you can complete it or abandon it - and that should get you started.
The second scenario is not as well defined. That said, it seems that eliminating some enclaves from the map will usually get the Legacy missions started.
If neither of these things starts your legacy, please submit a request and we will try to gather more information.
Hello im a customer of state of decay 2 I have had the game before it was released none of these things helped can you please fix the game glitch
I had the same problem and remembered that at certain plague hearts, I didn't collect all the items it contained after it died so some didn't collapse. I'm thinking that that is a necessary step before you get credit for that particular heart. I started over (simply because I didn't remember where they all had been and I didn't want to scour the map to find them). I take all the items now even if I immediately drop them and have not had this problem since. Hope this helps.
I had this game for one month and I almost had 2/4 of the legacy traits done but this glitch is keeping me for finishing the game I would like it if you where to kindly lead me to the right detection in the game or to go fix the bug
hi i am trying to complete the warlord mission legacy but the mission Smash the Coalition does not happen also it bounces me back to A New Beginning also does this only happen with regular survivors as i have used red talon as leaders but this also keeps happening
Hi, I'm facing the same issue as seekerdude. My leader is a regular survivor - warlord. The mission "Smash the Coalition" does not appear. Please help. Im stuck for weeks. Just roaming around hoping the mission will appear.
have done all your survivor other missions ie find a mace/ timberwolf other ambient goals then give it a go
Hi, I do not have any active missions. Have completed any missions that appear.
Please fix this. I'm on builder legacy and after I complete building the sniper tower, it does not let me go forward. I know you guys have been very good about fixing the glitches unlike some gaming companies.
I have cleared out all the plague hearts (but I haven't looted them all to make them completely disappear out of survival reasons) and completed the builder quests. The quest that begins the point-of-no-return does not trigger. It's been a few days since I've done the builder quests. I do not want to go back and look for the plague hearts that were not completely looted. It was a tactical decision. I hope you can fix this especially since this is Lethal.
We can solve this bug by eliminating allied enclaves in the game. Theres is a maximum number of enclaves. When we are going to complete the legacy mission, especially the last one, the game tries to creat new enclaves and fails because the maximum amount has already been reached . In this way, the game restarts legacy missions.
To elimininate some enclaves in the game, just attract hordes on top of it or recruit a member.
still got this glitch, glad I didn't buy this game and it's on xbox pass
To all developers of undead lab,
if you think you cannot handle your jobs, then simply just quit your jobs.
I've been playing since update 16 and all I've found is nothing but bugs.
You guys have done nothing but adding more bugs.
After 3 years of release, don't you think it should be bug free?
Shame on you!
My friend ran into this issue and it's definitely tied to Enclaves. In the case of the Sherriff and Trader, it seems both legacies require the existence of multiple Friendly or Allied Enclaves on the map, so if you either don't have room for them (not enough free Enclave slots) or don't have existing Enclaves that can be used for those Legacy mission chains, the initial mission may not trigger normally.
I have this problem on Sheriff legacy - to be absolute precise, i dont have problem with specific Sheriff-Legacy mission, but i cant get "celebration" mission, where i have to talk with folks in my community about defeating Blood Plague after destroying last Plague heart.
Its pretty frustrating, because its on Nightmare difficulty and trying possible solutions cost me hours of time, resources, influence and even some survivors. I dont think its Enclave related problem (at least max cap) mentioned above, because in time of killing last plague heart i had (except my own of course) only 5 enclaves on map (4 friendly/allied and 1 neutral), i got rid of them (all 5 of them) and started over from clean map and now i have same number of new ones (4 friendly/allied and 1 neutral) and this just didnt helped.
I also tried:
1) classic switching characters here and there to trigger missions
2) demolish and rebuild Field hospital
3) use Influence to look for Plague heart (which ends right after, because there isnt any on map)
4) Replace leader character - my original sheriff died during one of these "trigger" experiments, but new one (brought from Legacy pool) didnt have luck here either
I played sheriff legacy before and i think i have met all requirements - if there is minimum number of friend/allied enclaves (but i dont think so, because its not technically Sheriff-only legacy mission, all of leaders have this one) it should be 3 (or less), because in previous speed run i had only 2 - 3. Now i have 4 and nothing.
At this point, im very frustrated and kind of angry, that after all years there isnt ensured reliable functioning of such basic thing, like finishing of MAIN and NECESSARY quest line. Dont get me wrong, i love this game, how it work with survival, basebuilding, supplies gathering and such, but this is just amateurish lack, which can ruin it all and take away motivation from players to replay it.
