I was wondering if anybody remembered having trouble with this quest before.
I have talked to the starting NPC as RNG. I have it flagged in my Current Windust Quests. Next, you go to Mhaura and talk to a Koh something or other. She is supposed to give you half a story, then demand a gold earring for the second half. Then you go to Xarcabard for a cutscene upon zoning. There's more after that, but I can't get past Koh. She won't give me her first cutscene. She also won't take my earring. I've tried going back to the starting NPC, who simply repeats that I need to go to Mhaura. I've tried repeating Koh's part on RNG, even though you shouldn't need to be on RNG past the first cutscene. I've even tried skipping Koh all together and heading to Xarcabard, with no luck.
I contacted a GM and told him all of this. He said that he didn't see a flaw in the way I had done the quest, and would submit a special report so it could be investigated... He basically told me "maybe we'll fix it in the next update, IF we find a problem, but maybe we won't bother fixing it." Needless to say, my hopes are not high. So, I thought I'd ask around here, just in case there IS a step I'm missing, or any of you can give me some insight.
