Some closed beta testers have been reporting broken quest in the chain to acquire the Arcatraz Key. Tigole confirmed this will be fixed by next beta patch. And only one person needs the key for the team.
Tigole: “We’re looking into the key quest now. If it’s broken, we’ll do our best to fix it ASAP.
As for the key being a requirement for the portal, it should not be. That will be fixed in the next push. The door/portal should work just like Scarlet Monastery – Cathedral. One person in the group needs it. We’ll get that fixed.”
If you are lost on where to start the long chain of quests to acquire the Tempest Keep: Arcatraz wing key, sweat no more.
