    At the top of your compass, while on the overland map, move your mouse over the blue marker for solace bridge outskirts. It will mention a Task. What does that say?

    You possibly have a Solace Bridge Outskirts Heirloom on you would be a guess (you can turn that in).

    No task for this one, which is a bit different than other compass marker.

    No heirloom in my inventory.

    When I enter Solace Bridge Outskirts, only Captain Kidnsey is shown as compass marker. But still no task listed.

    Is there a blue marker in your compass on the world map for solace bridge, does it say anything?

    Did you say "hello" to Kinsey? Depending on when you completed the SBO quests, she might have an extra reward for you. There have been a couple of times when we improved her rewards and players that completed her quests can still check in with her to get the extra items that didn't exist the first time around, so I wonder if that's the reason.

    Oh yeah, you may not have gotten the new title she gives out?

    Can't remember as I completed the quest some years ago. Tried "hello" and clicking other keywords. Seems no new quest or reward come out.

    @Chiasma , when you are in Novia and near Solace Bridge Outskirts, do you get a special compass marker indicating the quest? If so, when you hover your mouse over that compass marker what does the text say?

    Quest-themed compass markers should have special mouseover text when you place your cursor over them. This text will let me know what quest is being indicated.

    Compass marker shows the quest name in this release but still Captain Kinsey does not need any help from me (i.e. all keywords have no new quest):

    That's great info, thanks! I just submitted a fix. Hopefully that solves the issue, once it gets added to the live server.
