Bugs Edit

  • pcIcon pc The quest that requires you to speak to Mistress Woolsey will appear to be incomplete in the quest log even though you have already spoken to her and obtained The Righteous Path quest. As of PC V1.05, this is still prevalent. Talk with Seneschal Varel after Oaths of Fealty ceremony and ask about Kristoff again. This will update the quest journal properly. To prevent the bug from the start, talk to Mistress Woolsey first, and then, the other two.
