    Title: Premature Compass Marker (Solania Book Quest)
    Reproduction Rate: 1/1
    Blocker? No

    Details: A sparkly blue compass marker for the Solania Catacombs exit to find the book appears as soon as one enters the Ardoris Sewers. This spoils the player both for the fact that there IS an exit to the Solania Catacombs in the Sewers (telling you exactly where the secret exit is before you've discovered it) and for the location of the book. When running into this, I had the book quest but was only on the first stage of it, speaking to the woman at Solania Mercantile, and not yet at the point where I should know that she's lost possession of the book.

    Steps to Reproduce: Explore the Ardoris Sewers.

    The marker appears on the far exit because of our automatic "breadcrumb" system. This system correlates your current tasks and the scenes that relate to them and adds compass markers to guide you to the next scene. Although unfortunately sometimes spoilerrific as in your case, it's an intentional design that I can't override.

    Understood as far as revealing the location of the secret passageway; that's a shame but it is what it is. However, for the second spoiler -- in this case, my "next scene" WASN'T Solania Catacombs, because I don't have a task to go there yet. I only have a task to go to Solania Mercantile, not to the Catacombs.
