This contains ... Spoiler I have difficulties continuing with the main quest. Finishing steps 1-3 (Hexe + Elder Geist core) was easy enough. However step 3.5 - talking to the Echoes leaves me puzzled. I found three Echoes (hut in valley behind Elven Camp; close to battle site; close to lake / Golums) and listened to their story. I also found the note and returned it to Hyla. The note from the two hunters was discovered but I didn't find any NPC interested in it, yet. From the story I believe Cpt Burnes is the culprit, however Esmeralda tells me to look for Echoes and Burnes doesn't react to any keyword that might be related. Running around is easy enough for me as the mobs are not challenging, for a new player it might me more frustrating. Am I running past a fourth Echoe? Am I missing some trigger?
