Topic title. AVOID THIS MISSION LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!! It's in the Red Marches. When you go to poison the cistern, the enemies never stop spawning. Which would be cool, if they didn't pile up until the game can't handle it and freezes. And then, even when you knock 5 bodies into the cistern, it doesn't update. AND THEN! Yeah, there's more. When you get back outside, it thinks you're still inside that cistern room and won't let you fast travel. Anywhere.
^ when you know how to avoid to bug the quest its easily done. my first attempt ended into having to load a earlier save and lose a hour n a half of progression but now Ive cleared it,made it through the hwole tomb of Fyragnos and now Im over with that bugged part. probly the only major bugged quest in the whole game
I had no problems doing this quest. Far from it, I had so much fun doing this quest. As the others said, enemies keep spawning like rats until 5 died from poison. But I killed like 200 of them before letting the NPC net those poison-kills. Believe me, so much fun!
I just had this happen and it bugged out my game. I blew up the first three with aoe, then a bunch popped behind me, then more and more and more, then I accidentally clicked the door while looting corpses and I think that's what did it.
Now if I try to do it, I kill the first three, the quest 5/5 pops up for the poisoned mobs, and then:
"Keep on guard, there's more coming!" and..nothing.
Sucky part is I don't have any other savefiles other than autosave, so I wasn't able to go back to a previous one to fix/avoid this, so I'm stuck with no fast travel till a patch gets here, and not going to bother starting over with over 35 hours clocked in lol.
At least ME3 comes out tomorrow to keep me busy while I wait for a patch to fix Amalur so I can finish it xD
