    Title: Find Patrator
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? Yes, for this quest

    Details: The journal tells you Patrator is female. In the flotilla, there are two male elf prisoners and one female (and one empty cage). None of the prisoners will identify themselves as Patrator.

    This was brought up back in 2018. I don't know if there's some other trick or if Alley's spoiler in that thread is incorrect/no longer correct, but I've gone over every inch of the scene multiple times, talked to each of the three prisoners multiple times, and there's no further clue about Patrator.

    Also, not related to the quest but related to the prisoners: The first elf prisoner, closest to the entry bridge? After freeing him, you can follow him up to the hollow tree, then WATCH HIM turn around, go back to the flotilla, and LOCK HIMSELF BACK UP in the same cage that you just released him from a few seconds ago. There's something wrong with that.

    Steps to Reproduce: Explore South Longfall Wetlands, talk to the three elf prisoners.

    confirmed i don't find her now, but i redid the quest and found her on april 21st, so either there's a recent change or she doesn't spawn without the quest flag

    I've got the quest flag, or at least I've got the quest.

    Patrator only spawns when someone on the proper quest stage is in the area. Also, her name doesn't appear automatically, but if you ask her name then she'll tell it to you.

    I'll look into the elf prisoners running back to their cages. Issue #67122

    I AM on the quest. If there's some other "stage" to it, there's been no clue about what that is. If there's some other part to it that isn't triggered yet, then that's a problem. And I HAVE asked all the elves their names, multiple times.

    It takes a while for one of the prisoners to be Patrator. Yeah, that sounds weird, but I ran through this quest last night and had to free the prisoners something like 3 times for Patrator to spawn.
