[BUG] [QUEST] The Ties That Blind

  • What is your character name in New World:

Drunkard Spug

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on:


  • Describe the issue you are experiencing:

The note on the bridge that you are supposed to read to advance the quest (the objective “Search for traces of Warden Sexton”) does not advance the quest and is therefore unable to be completed, as far as I can tell this quest unlocks the opening of more quests in the zone, so it effectively locks the zone. This quest worked in Beta.

  • Is this a bug or an exploit:


  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay:

I cannot advance with quests in the zone “Great Cleave”

  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue:

No, logging out/in did not fix, leaving zone and returning did not fix, dying did not fix.

  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:


  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced:

Simply get the quest and go attempt to complete it. Multiple people reporting the same issue in game.


Have you picked up the correct note? There is two notes in that area,

This is the note that advances the quest.

This one, is most likely the one that you picked up.


After the patch (not sure that’s what did it or not) the letter in your screenshot spawned for me. It was not here before though, but the quest appears to be fixed.
