Exorcize the water ghoul bug

If you do not talk to Chin before you exorcise the water ghoul from Shun with the Jewel of Ebb and Jewel of Flood, the quest will hang up. Chin will just tell you how famous you are rather than thanking you for the help and giving you a bunch of gems. And without Chin's approval, the main quest from Mikey can never be finished and without Mikey's rose, the Brew a potion quest cannot be finished. Further with these two open quests, you'll never be able to join the Guild.

Luckily, I was able to go back to a very recent save and do everything in the correct order.

Also there's a minor typo in the Spellbook of Marked Man (picture attached).

    Mikey does tell you to talk to Chin first but I can see how a player could go wrong. I'll do an update. Thanks.

    Help! I’ve talked to Chin first, and he told me to find the gems. Okay, I went on my way and found Shun and talked to him. Then I found the gems. Then I proceeded to do exorcism on Shun. Returned to Chin. Quest not solvable. I’m stuck now, right? I need to go back a huge amount of days and work, if this quest is not solvable by some other means :-/

  • I think I see the problem. I'll do another update. I can't tell you when Elendil will be able to get to it though. He's very busy.

  • Thanks! In the meantime, I’ll have a long, stern look in a mirror and reflect upon why i don’t have a decent save-game strategy.

  • There's a reason there are so many save slots. : ) I save every ten minutes. If I'm not sure, I save in a diffeent slot.

  • For others who are struggling with this - please see below how I managed to solve it:

    1) Map the whole dungeon first, don’t talk to Shin or Shun

    2) Find the gems

    3) Talk to Shin

    4) Talk to Shun

    5) Talk to Shin again

  • I'm glad you solved it and for the explanation to help others.
