I have the exact same issue as you do and also can’t progress. I’m hoping for some kind of a fix.

  • What is your character name in New World: Ilxuss
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Pollux
    The rest is the same.
    And also a screenshot:

So abandon the quest… re-accept it and go to each location 1by1… you only get 6 so if you accidentally place 2 in 1 slot you wont be able to complete the quest…

I had the same problem. Cancel the mission and get it again. It does, but I wasted 4 hours.

Thanks. Thought someone else tried that but didn’t work. Will give it a try. Would be nice if we actually got a response. You know there are a bunch not even reporting the issue.
