Hurtoc replied to Cr33g's question in Pillars of Eternity: Technical Support (Spoiler Warning!)Same here and this is my number 1 issue with the game. This quest is central to the plot and I've picked my side as part of the role-playing experience. In order to move on I have to choose "I've burned all bridges" event though I can go to my faction (Crucible Knights) and request to be part of the hearing with their faction. I'm also running patch 1.05.
I had the same problem and solved it by setting Graphics level to lowest quality and being zoomed out. After the dialogue with the High Priest, the animation continues and wants to show your party again. I had a weird problem then because the enemies started moving but my guess didn't execute their commands after unpausing, but after a time they were back to normal.
