Same problem here, NEVER fixed !
I'm still amazed to see that they consciously stop taking care of a game full of bugs to start the development of another that will know the same life cycle. We send them feedback in due time (Obsidian forums), they say "Yes, we're aware of these bugs and they'll be fixed with next patch" but eventually nothing happens. They just let it rot away.
Getting this blade is a real pain in the @§§ but still, if we make the wrong decision at the wrong time, then the blade becomes a bittersweet memory.
