Yet another quest hiccup
14.11.2010 @ 06:18 #1
I put the Axe on the Altar, run to a campfire and wait, go back and get the amulet. When I grab the amulet, the quest log updates as if I had been killing everything, and says I should continue doing so. I can't turn the amulet in to Yaren (as the wiki specifies). Tried loading an earlier save and attempting it again, but I get the exact same result. I'm basically being forced to go the violent route when I'm supposed to have a choice here.
If you can't tell from my other posts lately, I'm getting pretty fed up with problems in "The Witcher". I want to keep going because I hear it's worth it, but crap like this consistently happening has me pretty close to just putting it down entirely.

Also after talking with Yaren did you kill 3 bloodzuigers on the way towards the cave , a group of drowners toward the altar of meletiele and after passing the altar staying on the road to the right take out a few echinops. The only choice you have is how you deal with the vodyonoi

As you're having many bugs, I suggest you patch your copy to the latest version. It's odd you ran into so many bugs. I played the 1.0 version many times without so many bugs. I must say you're very unlucky. :(

Ran into what I think is a silly quest bit with Yaevann and the letter, but that's okay. It wasn't game-stopping - I gave the letter to Vincent, my journal said I needed to construct a lie to tell Yaevann, and then when I talked to him the only option was to outright say I didn't deliver the letter. Journal updated to say that I had lost his trust and was in his bad books, but I spoke to him again and he said he trusted me for doing the favor (assume this means he thinks I delivered the letter) and he gave me the option of escorting some Scoia'tel to collect some goods.
I turned it down for continuity's sake, but is there some sort of fan-made patch that addresses bits like this?
EDIT: Also, I must say that this game is far better with Polish Voiceovers with English subtitles. English VA just doesn't sound as into it as the Polish actors do :)

This is correct. You have to kill three groups of monsters even in the "peaceful" version. It sounds to me like the glitch is in your expectations, not in the game.
