ESO The Final Assault (Cold Harbor) Quest is Bugged!

Have just spent several frustrating hours in Cold Harbor trying to do the quest "The Final Assault".  There are various inputs on how to light the various portals floating around.  Unfortunately, onne Gaiscioch member told us that you need to jump off of a tower,  and then target the portal, and press the execute key while in the air, then you die.  I have even seen information that says you need to take off your armor and weapons first.  I don't know the name of the individual and even if I did I would not post it here for this is not the place for that.  Suffice it to say this method is not one that works.

After doing additional research just now, it appears that the information this individual provided to others on Raid Call is how should I put it, less than accurate.  This quest was completed and confirmed via YouTube video on 4/16 by a player standing on the ground and not jumping.  I went to the ESO forums and found an entry stating the quest is currently bugged, with no ETA on correcting this.  This is important since you cannot progress to vetran status and the associated upcoming quest lines/content until you complete this quest. 

I find it quite upsetting that a member of our guild would troll such inaccurate information causing several players hours of frustration.

Bottom line, if you are having trouble with a quest check the ESO forums first to find out if it is bugged.  Second, take what ever advice is offered, based on the cost, i.e. if it is offered for free......I would be a little suspect.

No, the method works, I completed that quest on Friday.

*Spoilers*

Collect the last flame, and jump to the pillar. Then jump left off the pillar, facing the receptacle and spam the 'E' button. You might catch a glimpse of the 'Press E' message.  You will die as you continue to fall.  Once you res, thedoor to the next area is unlocked.

Taking armour off is a good idea as after numerous attempts it can take a lot of damage.

Good luck!

I was trying this today and frustrated b/c I had done it in the PTS with no issue. Others were trying to jump but unlucky as was I. I assumed it wasn't possible, but I saw other people getting past the door. I guess I'll keep trying (without my armor this time to save some gold...)

ZOS should make it an easier click though...

I did it 2 days ago with the jump to the left method. Worked the first time I tried it like that after spending an hour trying to jump directly towards it. I guess since there's a workaround they don't care too much about it.

I, too, had to do the /whee! jump to the left to get it to work for me and progress to veteran content. I only missed the flame once on the jump, so it didn't cost too much (2 deaths total, 1 fail 1 success).

As to the OP, I wouldn't rag too harshly on the family member who suggested the /whee! method, as it has worked pretty consistently for so many of us now and is a way (albeit not optimal) to get past the quest and reach veteran content. I think he/she was just trying to help with what had worked for them.
