Locked SOLVED [RESOLVED] Unable to interact with NPCs/Steal Letter in "Abbot's Gambit" | POST HERE1 Likes/258 Replies/34720 ViewsOriginal poster Sky_Sailor92 7 posts
This quest in Cent, The Abbot's Gambit, is bugged for me at the moment. It's not giving a dialogue option when trying to talk to the people to find out where the emissary is. Is there a work around or should I try to travel out then back in?

Nevermind, looks to be fixed after fast traveling to the nearest sync point then going back.

So in the quest, after talking to Basim and the priest, I have to go to an inn and speak to a bunch of people but for some reason, I cant talk to any of them....
There are talking icons above them but not talk button appears on them (E on PC)

there's a mission where you have to go talk to the bard under the bridge. but I tried talking to him and he started walking around the map. can't go forward with the quest. loading previous saved don't help too. almost up to 33hrs of play can't restart from the beginning. is there a way restart the entire quest line?

On the mission 'The Abbot's Gambit' you seemingly have to wake a drunkard up so that you can talk to him. So I pick him up and throw him in the river, just as you are told to do a mission earlier to wake up another drunk person. He proceeds to stand up and leave with no button prompt to talk to him at all. Normally when I experience a glitch to do with a npc I travel to Ravensthorpe and back and It resets everything but this however doesn't. I then load a previous auto-save and low and behold it doesn't work. It loads a different save, an auto-save made after the bug occurred. I load several more to no luck, they all now load the most recent auto-save made after this bug. I can no longer proceed with the main storyline.
I am playing on PC.

During this questline I dropped NPC in water, bard proceeded to swim across lake and now won't talk to me. He seems to settled into a life of labor in the monastery next to river. I've tried going to a new sync point, switching quests and fast traveling, restarting game, uninstalling and reinstalling game... after 55 hours of gameplay am I just stuck with a completely broken game?
Please help me figure out what I'm supposed to do... starting a new game is absolutely not the answer/fix I'm looking to hear.

So I can’t talk to the bard I wake him up threw him in the water and he won’t me talk to him. I have fast traveled away then came back, I have went and done other quests, I have went and pledged somewhere else then pledged again to cent , I have restarted the game. All this bard does is walk around I’ve followed him I wake him up again but I can’t talk to him.

Talked to Basim and the Abbot, the quest title appeared on the HUD with no additional details below. I talked to the abbot again to figure out where to go. Went to the Tonnbridge Inn to find out where the messenger was, dialogue options appeared next to characters but when I spoke to them, they told me to go away. Restarted the game and still no luck.

Same here. I got to the stage where i had finished talking with Basim and the Abbot, decided to save and come back to it the next day, and when i returned there was no quest marker so i had to find the inn unaided. Once i found the inn there were lots of people with speech bubbles above their heads but none of them will talk to me and i see no way to progress this quest.
I've encountered a lot of bugs in this game but this is the first i would consider game breaking as to get to this point in the game you'd have to had invested a heck of a lot of time and restarting from scratch just ain't gonna be appealin', might as well drop the game entirely.

I killed the saxon soldier after threatening him and softlocked progress on this quest. Tried a number of things to try and fix this and in the process of doing so lost access to the save file before killing the soldier.
Had a similar problem on Odyssey.
