Main quest is stuck and journal is not updated in Pillars of Eternity: Technical Support (Spoiler Warning!) Posted September 8, 2015 I read in older threads that there is a bug which happens when the player quick saves right after the conversation with Maerwald and before the battle. This is what really causes this bug. I am now certain, because I restarted the game, played up to Caed Nua and made some tests. Initially, I tried to defeat Maerwald without quicksaving. Wasn't easy, because I am playing PotD. Took several reloads, going through the conversation each time. I managed to kill Maerwald, then I killed the Flame Blight. After the combat was over, I got the choices dialog and all the quests updated correctly. Then I made a quick save after the conversation. I again killed Maerwald and the Flame Blight was again alive. The Time and Tide quest updated. I killed the Flame Blight, finishing the battle. Then nothing happened - I didn't get the choices dialog, The Old Watcher quest didn't update and I didn't get the Never Far From The Queen quest. That is good to know. Thank you for your experiment. However, because major encounters tend to be difficult ones, I have enjoyed to save after conversation and before battle. It is sad to learn that I should not use that method.
