    Title: Courage can be frigid quest: can't enter large looking glass
    Reproduction Rate: Not clear, I'm on the quest and can't re-try
    Blocker? Yes, can't finish the quest.
    Details:The last quest step giving from Esmeralda in Highvale Outskirts Monastery is called "Courage can be frigid" and says I should enter the large looking glass. When I try to do so I get the message "You do not have enough knowledge". I have the ghostly essence in my inventory that is supposed to act as key too though.
    Steps to Reproduce: See above.

    I am having the same issue. I've gone back to all the ghosts and Esmeralda, and even to Captain Burnes.

    I don't know what to do to advance the quest.

    The quest has another issue, can that be added still here? If you speak to the ghost (final of the 4 echos) and you close the conversation accidentally, then you get the last quest step but you can't talk with the ghost anymore about the remaining keywords. He just ignores you again. Should stay open to finish the conversation.

    Another ... Done this quest now 3 times with different characters and this is the first time it hasn't worked for me. Basically, I have the "Ghostly Echo Essence", and the conversation with Esmeralda seemed to have gone normally, but if I remember right, she blows more cold stuff into my face and the essence goes away. This time I still have it and I can't use the floor mirror; also can't get Esmeralda to repeat the conversation. The echos are back to not noticing me. I suspect Captain Burnes bribed Esmeralda :)

    Good news! We put in a fix for this yesterday, although I don't think it's made its way into the live game yet.

    @matsutaki, i've been able to place it before. where are you trying to place it? it may count as a light source, have you already hit that limit?

    it sounds like you have not completed the quest. turn it in to either the skull orator or the whiteguard. esmerelda. sorry, switching quests there, but the answer stands: if it's gold, you're not done.

    Did you go back and talk to Esmeralda again after killing the guy in the floor mirror? She should take the skull, do some stuff and give the skull back.
