Modwyr wants to talk, but we can't!

Question

Hi tech team!

 

Having a blast so far playing through as a rogue. I found the awesome talking sword Modwyr and soulbound it to my character even though I'm not proficient, because it just seemed so cool!

 

Unfortunately, I seem to have stalled a bit in the progression of the item. I have a buff on my character called Modwyr's empathy, saying that Modwyr wants to talk to me. Try as I might, though, I can't seem to initiate that conversation. I've tried clicking on the icon for the buff, clicking on the sword in my inventory. Everything that I could think of.

 

Is there something that I'm missing, or is it possible that there is a bug?

I have it equipped. It didn't want to talk to me until after I had completed a requirement within the item's description. "Kill one kith" or something like that. I still have Modwyr equipped, but I still cannot initiate a conversation, despite having the icon seemingly indicate I should be able to.

 

Just as more info in case someone else can help me debug, I have tried equipping and un-equipping the item. I have tried to save and reload the game. I have tried moving maps.

You either right click the icon of the weapon, or, while it's equipped and you are selecting the Watcher, there should be a 'talk' button like there is with companions which should launch the talking to the sword.

 

Hope that helps.

Hmm, thanks Jakl201. Unfortunately, there is no talk button on the Watcher's portrait. And right-clicking on the Modwyr icon doesn't start the conversation either. I haven't had her talk to me since the first conversation. Interestingly, at some point the detail in the sword description that said "Talk with Modwyr 0/1" changed to "Talk with Modwyr 1/1," although I never spoke with the sword.

 

Hopefully other people have experienced this bug and we get a fix. I'm curious about this part of the story...

I think I might know the reason for this. Normally, when you hit the requirements for a soulbound level, a dialogue opens automatically with Modwyr once combat ends. If you maybe hit the requirements during a ship boarding action or something, maybe when combat ended the game transitioned to the world map immediately and you didn't get that conversation, but the game thinks you did? But not enough to properly progress the quest?

When looking at the weapons description, there is no button to talk to it at the bottom? Hmm...Bug I suppose.

 

And at KaiG's post, that could be it, but I did the same thing to level up Modwyr (ships are the best chances to kill kith after all) but it upgraded fine. I had to initiate a manual talk with the sword is all.

Welp, unfortunately, I have missed a bit. I ended up finishing the sword's quest without ever really talking to it. I feel like a missed a bit of the story, but at least I was able to get some resolution without being able to talk to the blade.

 

Is there any official way to submit a bug report to Obsidian?
