    Title: NPCs request placing wildflower at grave in Tanglemire - can't until quest is formally received
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No
    Details: The NPCs Frida and Myndill told me it would be an honor if someone placed a wildflower on their daughter's grave. I already found a Spindleskog wildflower in Spindleskog - but clicking the Ceremonial Vase or the grave itself, has no effect.
    Steps to Reproduce: See chat dialog below:

    Echondas: help
    Frida: It would honor our daughter, Myndis, if someone placed a certain type of wildflower on her grave.

    Echondas: wildflower
    Frida: My daughter always loved the wildflowers that grow along the edge of the cursed wood. Poor girl. We'll always miss her.


    Echondas: help
    Myndill: Placing a wildflower on the grave of Myndis would honor her.

    Echondas: wildflower
    Myndill: My daughter always loved the wildflowers that grow along the edge of the cursed wood. Poor girl. We'll always miss her.

    Looks like it. @Echondas redo the "nibbled bone" quest. After that Myndill will give you the sparkle wave and the quest. I'm still trying to get the flower. Barely able to survive, lol

    I think what is happening is:

    1) The Wildflower quest item CAN be picked up by anyone, at any time. Do not know if this is intended or not.
    2) If the player does NOT yet have Frida's quest and picks up a wildflower, nothing will happen. This sequence is currently not working (if this is intended to work).

    @Anpu @Sean Silverfoot I don’t have anything in my journal but the NPCs are telling me i should place the wildflower. Seems like the bug is the dialog triggering without the quest actually active? i’ll try redoing the nibbled bone quest like Sean mentioned and see what happens. thanks!

    That's what worked for me after I did all the other quest. Now I just need to live to find the wildflower. Then I can try placing it

    @Sean Silverfoot Doesn't look like the missing (nibbled?) bone quest is repeatable?

    [2/13/2021 12:01:18 PM] Echondas: missing bone
    [2/13/2021 12:01:18 PM] Arnkatla: I've already replaced the missing bone.
    [2/13/2021 12:01:18 PM]
    [2/13/2021 12:01:20 PM] Echondas: help
    [2/13/2021 12:01:21 PM] Arnkatla: I need no help, Echondas.

    I still have a journal entry to talk to the guards about repairing the spirit wheels.. I think I must not have done all 3. It would be helpful if the journal updated each leg of the process so players don't forget where they left off.

    OK, so that was it.. I still needed to place the totem on the last spirit wheel.. then I got the amulet and turned it in.. now Frida is waving and actually more directly asked me to give her a wildflower.. which I did.. and then she gave me the quest to place it, and the ceremonial vase was glowing blue, and I was able to place the flower. I updated my bug report title

    2/13/2021 12:17:29 PM] Echondas: wildflower
    [2/13/2021 12:17:29 PM] Frida: We've heard you've been helping others in our village. This may sound odd, but would you be able to bring us a wildflower from the cursed wood?
    [2/13/2021 12:17:29 PM]
    [2/13/2021 12:17:36 PM] Echondas: Do you want this one?
    [2/13/2021 12:17:36 PM] Frida: Oh, wonderful! Our daughter loved the Spindeskog Wildflower but they grow too close to the edge of the cursed wood. Myndis died recently and it would be an honor if you were to place the wildflower at her grave. You'll find her resting place behind our home.
    [2/13/2021 12:17:36 PM] I was asked to place a Spindelskog Wildflower on a grave.
    [2/13/2021 12:17:36 PM]
    [2/13/2021 12:17:47 PM] Echondas: Goodbye
    [2/13/2021 12:17:47 PM] Frida: Bless bless.
    [2/13/2021 12:17:47 PM]
    [2/13/2021 12:17:53 PM] An item (Spindelskog Wildflower) has been used.
    [2/13/2021 12:17:53 PM] You pay your respects.
    [2/13/2021 12:17:53 PM] I should talk with one of the parents of Myndis.

    [2/13/2021 12:20:58 PM] Frida: Thank you so much, Echondas. My husband and I would never have been able to collect the wildflowers from such a dangerous area. We won't soon forget the great honor you have bestowed upon our daughter, Myndis. Please, take this reward with our blessing.
    [2/13/2021 12:20:58 PM]
    [2/13/2021 12:20:58 PM] You receive 940 gold!
    [2/13/2021 12:20:58 PM] You gained 53248 experience needed for skill development!
    [2/13/2021 12:20:58 PM] You received an item (Recipe: Burial Coffin) from Frida.

    Moving this to feedback since the quest worked (once I actually had it).

    Players are allowed to pick up the wild flower before getting the quest. If they do, they basically skip a step when they get the quest.

    If they pick up the wild flower before getting the quest, they don't get any special message. They only get a journal entry if they are on the proper stage of the quest and then pick up a wild flower.

    I'll be updating the "not yet ready for the quest" text to give better feedback. Right now, the text is confusing and it's true that it needs to be better.
