    I guess you play with range build.
    IIRC orbs always require standing close (about 5m) to obtain the lava shield.

    Yep, spot on. If not melee stand right on top of them when you heavy attack with destro or bow.

    Instruction unclear went in and had fun.
    But on a serious note:
    1. Like was stated in the post you need to be fairly close to get the fire shield.
    2. I personally never had issues with chests in VH, I'm sorry you had to experience it but it's a fairly uncommon bug (unless U41 introduced it for the first time) if you do decide to get there and you can't interact with the chest or experience a bug I recommend reporting it as a bug.

    I had a different weird bug once, I died in the lava trying to reach the health sphere (oh the irony) and my max health was reduced for the rest of the run, at least visually, the red bar would never fill completely. Also I usually have to bash the air a few times after beating the last boss in red to be able to use the chest and exit portal. Never what OP described though. ESO is still one of the least buggy MMOs I've played.

    Didn't know about the having to be close...that's good to know and will do that in the future (I thought I was pretty close, but obviously not)...that plus really I should have noticed no shield before I started to run.

    Not getting the goody after the work though...yea....that sucks. I did report both as bugs in the other area though.

    I feel good it was reported. At least it will mark the problem for the dev team. Thank you for doing it.
    I think it is designed a bit wrong at the moment, because there is absolutely no hint that the character have to be close to the orb.
    I remember my astonishment and anger when I hit the orb and got burned without a shield first time.
    It should either be fixed or explained ingame, if you ask me.
