    anyone know the passcodes for this quest? I got the one in southern grimvault but cant find the one in northern and cant figure out the code for blighthaven. Thanks

    For some reason I cannot add anything to my tech tubes. I click and the cast bar for “install” goes up but nothing happens.

    Quest is not repeatable even after the Phage Lab is recharged. If you want more copies of the decor, you will have to drop 4.25 plat again.
