Re: Buged quests!
I have actually stopped playing SoZ until that bloody patch is released and all major bugs like this are fixed. I don't want to read through the walkthrough at every turn for the sole purpose of avoiding a bug. Especially since bugs like the Nimbre one aren't fixable unless you start a new game.
I think overall, my experience playing Storm of Zehir has been ruined because it looks like I'll have to start over, and I already know how to prepare and exploit the cohorts I'll meet. It's somewhat disappointing, especially after all the hype about the 4 party members and the overland map and all that... well, at least for me. I was really looking forward to this game, and I did a Digital Download only two days after it was released.
So now whenever the hell Mysteries of Westgate comes out, I'm probably going to wait a few months before buying it to let them work out all the bugs. Either that or I'll stick to PW's that don't require it or stick with community created modules, which seem to generally go through a better beta testing process than the professional ones (Pool of Radiance, remastered FTW!).
