Possibly a quest bug

Post by PaintDragon »

So - I got a quest from a guy in Gothway Garden to deliver something to this other person in Gothway Garden. He said to ask around, because everyone knows who she is, but when I go to talk to the townspeople her name doesn't appear in the dialogue options. Am I missing something?

-As far as I know, there is only one town with this name in the region of Daggerfall.
-I have tried fast-travelling to Gothway Garden (from the outskirts of said town), but it didn't fix anything.
-I have made the possible mistake of saving after receiving this quest. :?
-It says I need to make the delivery within 5 days.

Hey, welcome to the forums. :)

I'll move this to Help & Support. The Quest Hub forums are centred around quest development side of things.

Can you please attach a zip of your save and let us know the name of the quest you need help with? Information on locating saves can be found in below link.

I don't think this particular quest has a name. It seems to just be some delivery sidequest.
To be more specific, the questgiver wants me to deliver some clothes to a lady for her wedding.

Thank you for save. :) This quest is called "The Courier". More info and walkthrough below.

Quests don't always have any rumours or information about people. A quest needs to link this up specifically and this quest doesn't do that. But most of the time you can just ask where a target quest building is in town. Speak with a wandering NPC in Gothway Garden and navigate to Where Is > General to get directions to a local quest building. In this case there's only one quest building called The Wickhouse Residence.

I was able to hand in your quest OK once the house was identified.

Daggerfall can be a bit weird and clunky. Sometimes the real challenge is just working out what it expects us to do next.

Thanks for the help! I don't know if I would have figured it out on my own in time. ^^;
