Damage during quest dialogue locks user movement/item usage

  • What is your character name in New World:
    Capt. Yon Gunnar

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

  • Describe the issue you are experiencing:
    Taking corruption damage during fishing quest dialogue (Quest: Weapons of the sea start) from adjacent corrupted monolith in Restless Shore auto-closes the quest dialogue, and then eventually locks player movement/weapons/potions/inventory button use. Only escape screen was interactable.

  • Is this a bug? (If this is an exploit, please dm Aenwyn or Luxendra)
    Yes.

  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay:
    After getting the bug, the quest dialogue closed, and then I could not move, drink potions, or access my inventory. I could access the escape menu overlay. I had to stand there like a dead fish until the corruption killed me, and then respawn.

  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue:
    Respawn worked at nearest settlement.

  • (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:
    Open the quest dialogue for the fishing quest in restless shore multiple times while a corrupted monolith is adjacent and taking corruption damage.

  • When did this happen? (Date and Relative time; please include your timezone)
    9/22 1:45PM MST

Thanks a bunch for reporting this!

I’ll get this over to the development team.
