Milk and Honey Quest Glitch: Poltergeist Status
Sorry if this is a duplicate, I didn't see any reports that list all the current issues I've found with this quest.
Platforms Affected: Windows (possibly others)
Current Status: Reported 13 Feb 2022
Glitch Occurrence/Specification: "Milk and Honey" Quest, stuck in Evergreen Meadows.
Glitch Reporter: @Raphael_Maxmatch (using OG character)
Related Glitches: Multiple glitches with this quest.
Details: Every time I have attempted this quest over the last couple months, it gets more glitched, and I'm now stuck. I'm hoping that when the quest resets itself, I'll be freed. I'm not sure if all of these instances were with the same character, but I think the first time it glitched and completed itself even though I never fought anything. The second time, goats appeared in the walking paths but caused frozen fights that required a restart. The third time, no goats showed up, but it also wouldn't let me fight the crushers - gave an "Event in Progress, Please Stay in Room" error message, and the enemies walked right through me. So I left, and the quest reset itself after a day or so. This time, I also can't even leave the Evergreen Meadows. I can run around within the Evergreen Meadows, but if I try to leave, I'm given the same "Event in Progress, Please Stay in Room" error message that I get if attempting to fight a crusher, see screenshot. Attempting to map teleport out does nothing (no error message, just does nothing). In addition, my progress is partially frozen, so if I pick anything up and add aether to my meter (the two main things that I can currently do), when I log out and log back in that progress seems to be erased back to my status upon entering the Evergreen Meadows. It does save if I change outfits, but I'm essentially stuck as a "poltergeist".
Side Effects/Similar Issues: Again, I'm hoping to be freed when the quest resets itself in another 12-ish hours, but if the quest not only is currently impossible (like a few others) but also breaks the game, it probably ought to be disabled until fixed.
