Bugs Edit

  • Be sure to turn in each item one at a time as you find them. If you try to turn in more than one item at once, the quest can fail to turn in and you won't gain the XP or Gold. The only known fix is to reload an earlier save.
  • If you leave the Abandoned Ruins without collecting from the venomous spider, you won't be able to collect it upon re-entering. The only known fix is to reload an earlier save.
