Can't hire Korgrak due to A Farmer's Plight bug


Ildun

Question

I don't care the quest outcome, I just want to hire Korgrak, but that damn bug prevent me to talk to Korgrak.

 

After I receive the quest,no matter what stage it is the bug will trigger when I entered the cave, tell me to go back.

 

I haven't try go to Korgrak straightaway before receive the quest because my last save is few hours earlier :(

 

Is there anyway to solve this bug?

What do you mean you're unable to talk to Korgrak and what bug are you talking about here?

As I said, when I entered the cave, the quest will straightaway update to final stage, which require me go back Dyrford Village and tell Rumbald I have dealt with Korgrak. Korgrak will act as if agreed to lay low, thus will not talk to me any further.

Hm, I've never tried to go into the cave before speaking to the pig farmer.

 

No idea how to fix that and he's probably bugged for that particular game, unfortunately.

After I go through some articles, I suspected the bug is trigger by finishing certain WM1 or WM2 quest where you allied with ogre/ ask ogre help in final battle before you meet Korgrak.

Same on xbox. Sigh. No ogre in my stronghild this run. Didnt encounter it on gog version w/o dlc. Hasnt been fixed since 2015. Im sure is not as simple as a quest flag. Otherwise the devs wouldve fixed it already. Man, i would love to investigate the code on this one.

Amazingly, this is still not fixed.

The quest skips two steps when entering the cave, and there appears to be no way to trigger only the first step - the entering of the cave - without also triggering the quest state stating that you've dealt with Korgrak.

Edit: The workaround is to set the globals "b_Rumbald_Ogre_Resolved" and "b_Rumbald_Ogre_Attacked" to "0", and then immediately upon entering the cave, teleport (via cheats/IEMod) to the trigger point of Korgrak's conversation, and then resolve it however you wish. Then when exiting the cave, you should get two updates; one saying you discovered a cave, and another saying you've resolved the situation and should return to Rumbald.
 

About 20 minutes of research confirms that these Globals are set to 1 when you kill Crothar the Ogre in Crëgholdt Bluffs, suggesting that the lazy ****olds for developers simply copy-pasted Korgrak and renamed him, or something. This also permanently ****s up some quest state/id somehow, which cannot be properly resolved by console in any way I know, causing the "double-update" when entering Korgrak's cave; likely because killing Crothar in Crëgholdt Bluffs already advanced the quest before you even had it.

And since any and all support of PoE has effectively ceased, this will likely never be fixed.
