Greetings and help request *solved*

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm a brand new player of Sacred. I bought the gold edition a few years back but somehow I never got around to playing it. I'm playing a Wood Elf now in Silver difficulty and am around level 55. I originally started a Vampiress but found her kinda boring to play. The Wood Elf has been much more to my liking.

I'm not sure how active this board might still be but I hope some of the veterans still check in occasionally. I have many questions (many more have already been answered by reading through these forums) but I have just run into a huge problem that I really need help with.

I did the Runaway Virgin quest in which you have to escort Isabella from the lava area down to the desert. I've done it before with my Vamp with no problems. This time though Isabella stopped in the narrow pathway leading down to the desert and won't let me pass by so I can get back to the lava area. I tried leading monsters to her in hopes that she would run but no luck. I tried closing and restarting the game, spending several game days adventuring elsewhere and even tried shooting her. Nothing has done the trick. Can anyone come up with an idea about how I might get by here so I can go back and finish the quests in the lava area including the main quest?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

*edit to add the solution I have found in hopes it will help someone else*

I just managed to fix this by using the cheat commands in the console. Basically after you have successfully enabled the cheats type:
Cheat tp
Then close the cheat console, open your map and hold the alt key and click where you want to teleport to.

I remember this bug and I also remember there was a non-cheating solution to it, although I can't exactly remember which it was. Big problem with this is  that both the International Sacred Forum has gone for a while now and Deep FECAL MATTER!ters never cared about the fanbase in the first place. Meaning chances are they don't have much or even anything about this game at all at their forums.

 

I think - and  this is a bit of speculation - that the moment you crossed the (invisible) line between the ramp and the desert at the bottom of the ramp, the quest triggered as completed; no matter where the questgiver was.

She would walk a bit afterwards, but usually stopped moving halfway the ramp and thus blocking access to the lava plains.

In MP it was a lot more easy as you just formed a party, one person went to the desert and the one accepting the quest teleported to the one in the desert, instantly moving the questgiver to the desert as well.

 

What some players did in SP, was slowing down when they were at the ramp and when moving down, making sure the questgiver kept close to them to avoid her blocking the path.

Others solved it by using the "teleportation / jump cheat" by actually moving a bit to the side, jump or teleport down (seraphim, Glad and BM could do this for certain) and walk up the ramp again to get the quest trigger working.

Or in case it didn't work, use the same thing to jump over the quest giver and continue the main quest.

 

 

I hope that the solutions I posted here help you to solve this problem in a future game.
