I just bought the cape and whistle for gwen and when I returned she was already wearing/holding them. They're still in my inventory and now I cant get her to ask for them. Anybody know what could be causing this?
Yeah. I got hit by it too. Not grouping with anyone on my new character until I've done that quest arc.
There IS a fix for the Tainted Gwen bug, though. I believe you have to group with someone who HAS the quest and is about to complete it. Since they already have the quest, you can't taint them. And fortunately, since the game already thinks you did the stuff anyway, it decides to credit you the quest completion by proxy.
