History

#1 Updated by Anders Svensson over 3 years ago

Original report:
Okey while doing the Explosive Barrel Quest were you are to put an explosive barrel under the crusaders castle. I didn't put on the necklace for finding the place untill I had already reached the mage who is summoning water elements I then followed it down to the Ettin ghost and placed down the barrel where I was told to Corwin also told me to place it down where I was at. I did not get a quest update prompt and just kept going I then forgot to remove the necklace making my way back to the exit and I started getting prompts again on where to go. I followed them back to the spot where I came from and got a prompt saying something like this "You have reached the place to put down the barrel but you are missing the barrel and cant complete the task". So I picked up the barrel again and placed it at that spot to no avail and the quest just wouldn't update resulting in it not completing.

I think I see what is happening here. You need to pick up the barrel again so that you have it in inventory and then click on the ground when you get a question mark as a cursor. It would be good if you could confirm if that makes it work for you. I will report this as I think the current implementation could be better.
