This quest is really buggy. Sometimes it works, sometimes no. There are four boxes in the small area. All four are clickable, but usually two of the four say "Already in Use" when you start them. Normally, two will work. I found that three were "already in use" today.

If it works, just kill the adds when they come and get your daily done.

I think we found out why the quest bugs. Don't do it with 3 people. When you do it with 3 people, just 2 get credit and the 3rd one doesn't, it won't update and the box begins to bug.
I think it's because it counts for everyone in the group. When you solo the quest you have to do 2 shipments. When you do it with one friend you just have to defend one of them. And with 3 it would count 3/2 and that's how it breaks. I'm not 100% sure about this, but that's my experience from doing at least the bonus mission for months now (so I've tried the quest almost everyday). Just hope it is fixed with patch 1.2!

Bugged out for me as well. All 4 chests said "Already In Use". When hovering over them, 3 of them had the name "Object has no name". Going to have to wait until a patch fixes this to do quest.

Fixed now.

Still bugged...submitted a ticket and response was "they were aware of the ongoing issue and are working to resolve"...no credit to complete because "it does not hinder your progression and you can abandon and start over" but BW has no idea when it will be fixed.

Master Zhar Lestin server.

I got the "Already in Use" error message. Abandoned the quest, still got the error. Reset the quest still got the error.

Made it to Ilum today. Mission still hasn't been fixed apparently....

Submitted a ticket after finding all four boxes were bugged. The response said that three boxes are bugged and they're "working to resolve this issue" and that one box should work. Apparently BW doesn't even know what's going on with this one. Also, sometimes the boxes will be named "OBJECT HAS NO NAME". Rakata Mind Prison server.

Logging out also will not help this issue, it appears to happen when people fail on those boxes.

All four STILL bugged. Lord Ardraas server, 2/28/12

By spherewalker at 2012-03-17 16:14:18

All four boxes are bugged on Master Zhar Lestin currently. I'm guessing they will get fixed during maintenance.

1st April - still bugged
By jmackie270 at 2012-04-02 23:59:01

Still bugged, two objects state "OBJECT HAS NO NAME" and all reply back "Already in Use". I am hoping this will get fixed soon but since it has been a couple of months I guess we will have to wait a while. I am on The Corsair server.

Anyone know if it works better right after a server reboot?

By ap0calypse at 2012-02-08 20:10:44
Still not fixed. Really stupid that not only does the mission not work but the items have no name, all in caps no less. All 4 not working. Awesome.
