Similar errors apply to other quest entries that are inappropriately marked as quests rather than journal items, and are therefore not properly removed from the quest list at the completion of the related game events:

"Neera"
"A Hidden Base in the Cloakwood"
(etc.)

#5 Updated by Faalagorn . about 2 years ago

I was checking something on old 1.3.2053 version and it seems that under this version "A Farmer's Tales" appear as a journal entry instead of quests, and there it appears correctly.

It seems that it was changed somewhere during 2.0 update and that's what prevents it from appearing. Similar with "The bartender spoke of ogres and madmen to the west of Nashkel" that appears in 1.3 but not 2.0, see Bug #32484 for details.
