Any chance you had these faction quests before a patch/server restart?

I’ve had the same issue a few times and its usually because I had the quests in my quest log before a server restart/patch and after the reset.

Not a great fix but if you want to do faction questions in that area in the meantime, you can abandon them and you should be able to hand in the next ones you complete.

I believe this is how you can reproduce the issue:

  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Grab faction questions before a server restart/patch and complete them once the server comes back up. When you go to hand in, it’ll show them as not complete and unable to hand in.

With the amount of restarts recently the quest are almost sure to be before.

Fair enough, maybe someone else can double confirm the bug but I believe the issue is:

Faction quests obtained before a server restart and completed after are unable to be handed into faction NPC and are always shown as “In Progress” regardless of status
