    @tomcat_de, that quest is blocked, but the love path is not. delivering the report is a side quest.

    When that happened to me ages ago because I did similar to what you did, I logged out for 10 minutes to let the map reset. Then I was able to complete the quest.

    @Alley Oop and @Jefe thank you both for your replies. I came back just now and the Construct was back. Mission complete :)

    I checked before, I got the two new quests to continue. But I wouldn't have liked to leave something unfinished like that. And that Eris looked awefully bored in there, so I'm happy to bring her something to read o_O

    Still I think this could use some work eventually (probably very low priority right now).

    Thanks again!

    Probably something to flag for when they eventually get around to converting old quests to the incoming quest system.

    Agree. If the new quest system catches on and is very user friendly then there may be a push simply to put the best foot forward for new players.

    A similar problem occurred with me just now. However, I did talk to both Miles Shepherd and Eris, using all the key words and everything in their dialogue trees. I did not apparently get the quest after doing all that. Went to the bottom to kill the obsidian construct after speaking thoroughly to both of them, and got nothing from the construct since the quest did not activate correctly before hand. Went back upstairs to speak again to both of them and the quest did activate this time, with Eris asking me for the report which of course I do not have.

    NOTE: With the current recommendation from developers to reset quests and work through the main path again to get 10x XP, this issue is going to frustrate alot of players, including new players coming in to try the game during the special xp event.

    Note that you can log out and back in. Re-enter the Necropolis - you'll be back at the start. But you can race through and the Obsidian Construct will be back. You can then complete the quest. I did the same thing you did and it worked. But I did it immediately after realizing the Construct would not respawn. I am not sure if it will work later on. Can't hurt to try!
