I'm on "The Final Trial". Somehow I got to the Circle of Elements without encountering the trolls first. The quest says "Get to the Circle of Elements" and I'm there at the little altar where the quest marker is...I've basically arrived and nothing is happening.

Solutions?

Reload a save and do the quest again properly.

Best bug finder ever 👍🏻. Haven't been a month here but already found so many bugs in the game.

There was no interaction from Lambert, no talk, no cut scene, nothing, when we arrived. So, I loaded an earlier save, found the trolls, went back, and that triggered everything at the Circle of Elements.

I absolutely love the game but this is definitely my pet peeve with it (other than the bugs). The game encourages exploration and experimentation but if you don't succeed in a quest in the exact way the devs designed, you're stuck and things can't progress. Happened several times, when I did what the quest said I should do, but I didn't "do it the right way". The quest log said to "get to the Circle of Elements" and that's exactly what I did. HOW you accomplish a quest shouldn't matter...just that you accomplished it.

Another example of this quest completion problem is when I killed Einar to get the fang needed to lift the werewolf curse. Nothing kicked in when I got back to the werewolf. Find out later on forums that you're supposed to negotiate with Einar for the fang, and if you kill him for the fang, doesn't work. Kinda funny, since the game rewards brute force options equally throughout just about every quest.

Anyway, still great game but nonsensical sections like these have me pulling my hair out and wasting time loading an earlier save to do it all over again.

sigh the post can't be edited again, it just 1 hour ago. How long is it until a post no longer can be edited?
I thought that's an imaginary conversation so I didn't put spoiler tag on it.
