Thread synopsis (after some testing June 4, 2020):
The Beginner story line quests will disappear from your voyage log and side screens if you join a guild before you do/ complete up to #46. "Merchant Alliance's Call" .

If you join a guild After # 46 you will be OK the quest line DOES NOT break.
ALSO DISCOVERED
THE LONDON TRIPOLI BUG of # 71 and #72 when you did tripoli first - USE TO break.
I just did the quests, purposely did Tripoli first and was able to continue to London and then Santa Maria with NO problems!!!!

If you encounter the break at #45-46 problem, support tells you to quit your guild, HOWEVER this is NOT a working fix.

Even though your merchant alliance will show colored green in your Interaction (Ctrl+x) > Merchant Alliance tab >> see tabs of all 5 alliances (your chosen alliance is green lettered)
After you quit and wait 3 days, your quests are still missing.

So there is NO FIX for this bug - except to make a new character!

Storyline for beginners have been changed multiple times in the past 10 years. If you're playing on an old character, its highly possible you are not able to complete it anymore.

Send a ticket to service center, explaining you're playing on an old char, and tell them to reset your storyline.

In case you're playing on a new char, follow our guide on forum.

Here's our storyline guide: http://vc.forum.igg.com/topic?ctid=56409

This is new char and I follow this guide, but when I reach quest no. 45  Depart, story line is simply gone, like it is finished and it is not visible in Voyage log anymore.

There is a note in the guide:

45. Depart
Take gold, (given to you), and talk to the Docker in Genoa.
Reward (Voyage Log): Prof Exp 1,190,000, Silver 200,000, 4 weapons exp 100,000
Reward (chat):  Prof Exp 10,000,000, Silver 200,000, 4 weapons exp 100,000

DO NOT join a guild before completing #68 (or maybe later)
if you join a guild prior to #68; (Probably due to MA alliance names available in the quest-line) the quest line will break.

as a side note...
if you quit your current guild it may fix itself.
IDK if you may have to wait until reset or 24 hours or maybe 48 for the action to go through the system.
(Let me know how it works please!!)

*edit* I found an old post where the player says quitting did not fix the problem (right away)... yet a few days later he had the quest line... so assume it takes at least 24 hours for the action to go through.
Please let me know if you can give exact or near exact amount of time you have to wait!!

------

The story-line has you join one of the 5 alliances in # 29.... so just being in an alliance is not the breaking point.... but some how joining a guild  will break it.

Story-line breaks after you do #45 (ie #46) when next step would be to talk to one of the 5 alliances you joined.
I understand why it would break if you were pirate nationality but why the guild joining breaks it I have no idea..

I had the problem too. I also tried to leave the guild, change the alliance etc. Nothing helped. I tested it with other alts and the questline also vanished at lvl 110.

Very demotivating for players. No wonder that the game dies.

I will need to test this with a new alt... I need to check if it breaks if I join between 46 and 68.

Once i finish, then I will send a full report to support and reference this thread.
so I will be adding pictures as well as editing the synopsis.
