    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No
    Details: Journal said next step was to journey to "the most haunted ruin in Midmaer". Went there. but there were no quest NPCs in crypt (they were there in QA and R29). Also, tried various things but couldn't interact with goblets in Sanguinarium and main room.

    If you are on a quest and have a spirit talker hired, you should be able to enter, will see a spirit talker near the entrance, and have a popup screen message referring to them.

    If you are not on a quest or do not have a spirit talker hired, you will see no spirit talkers or quest NPCs and the zone-in message will be "The Crypt is oddly quiet" or something of that sort (it is something we added in R30 so it could be entered when not on Path of Love quest)

    Ah, gotcha. I had hired the spirit talker but that must have been in QA, so I need to do that again.

    OK, I re-entered the Crypt of the Avatar, and this time the spirit talker was there. Did the quest thing, said goodbye to spirit talker, then proceeded into the lower depths.

    However,

    ...after killing a couple of water elementals and lots of skellies and ghosts, I found that I was unable to interact with the goblets in the Sanguinarium and the Cathedral. Are they supposed to be interactive? If I'm missing something, just say "you're missing something". I searched the Council Chamber as well (that was a tough one to clear!), but couldn't find any clues.

    @Sannio can answer that, he was the one who worked on that part of the scene... moving the thread since it's no longer a conversation/NPC issue

    Womby, those items were added during the worldbuilding stage with the idea they could be turned into something more special "later," and then the ball got dropped. I'm logging that as a bug and someone here will look into the situation.

    Had also problems with this part. NPC wasnt on his position.
    However after 4 times reset the dungeon and re-enter the crypt he was there.

    Entered first time, the spirit talker I did not hire (I hired Samael and got the talkative one here) and went in to explore. After frustrating deaths largely caused by crazy high skeleton density, I logged out.

    Today I downloaded the patch, and chose Start on World map - which started me in Kingsport, which seems like a bug. Went back to dungeon, no quest NPCs. No journal update either, so I didn't move past it... no clue what to do here.

    Seems entering from the Midras ruins caused the problem? Went down to Midmaer passage and back up and then was able to proceed. But it is still Kardan and not Samael...
