Unable to continue main quest beyond "Castle of the Wurm"

It doesn't look like the Banekin to start "The Tharn Speaks" has appeared for me. I don't currently have any main quest lines listed in my journal and I am unable to find anyone to move the quest forward in the Harborage or the Mages Guild in Daggerfall. I checked to see if I could find the Banekin in any of the cities I have been to and I was unable to find it. I am currently CP130 and I have soul magic 3 so I am fairly positive that is the last step that I left off at. I have a theory that I may have missed something when I left Sancre Tor at the end of Castle of the Wurm because I didn't accept any new quests while there thinking it was a new area and I didn't want to load up on quests until I started that area as I have been clearing each area before moving to the next. If there is something I have missed please let me know. Thanks for the help!

    I should also add that I noticed this on Monday so I have logged out multiple times and more than 24 hours have passed since. Sorry for the extra reply. I couldn't figure out how to edit my post.

    You are not alone. Many of us have not been able to progress past this point, me included.

    So many bugs with Elsweyr.

    I have always wondered how a quest that was part of the core game gets screwed up from time to time. I understand if they are tweaking the MQ, but this is a new chapter.

    This is not the first time the MQ has been messed up. Best advice, put the MQ on hold for now, you can always pick it up later. And, your journal will get you back on the path again.

    ZOS will fix this soon, they always do.
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    If you have the Tharn quest activated this happens. Cancel the quest and the Banekin will appear. It happened to me but after cancelling it worked just fine. You can get the Tharn quest later.

    Do you have a prologue quest for Elsweyr open? That also involves Abnur Tharn and it seems to somehow interfere with other quests that involve Abnur Tharn. If you do, drop the Elsweyr prologue quest and try to pick up the main quest again.

    Abnur ain’t good enough to be everywhere at once. He’s not as spry as he used to be.

    This was exactly my situation. I put in a ticket and they recommended doing exactly this (abandoning the Elsweyr prologue quest if not completed). Worked perfectly and I was quickly approached by the banekin quest giver for the next main questline quest. :)
