"Turning the Trees" (Daggerfall Covenant) - bugged, or did they change it somehow?

I never got as far as this in the beta, due to the previous (sub-)quest bugging out (Bloodthorn Assassins). This quest, as I understand, is supposed to start after leaving the castle when you've killed Verrik and gotten the greatsword from the king, by talking to an NPC standing outside the stairway up to the castle. However, the NPC in question wasn't there when I exited the castle. Is the quest bugging out (again?), or did they somehow change it in the final release?

    Bump.
    You run into a person just outside the burning village which seems to start the same quest chain, so I guess it maybe is meant to be this way?

    You can definitely start it directly from the village, but I'm sure it's supposed to turn up straight after Bloodthorn Assassins, otherwise the Alliance Story chain is broken. When I get there, if she doesn't appear for me either, I'll /bug it.

    She hasn't turned up, so this must be a bug. If this happens to anyone else, please remember to /bug it, as without her there, the flow of the Alliance Story is lost. The Alliance Story leads you around the zones, so it's essential to have the signpost quest objectives in place.
    ZOS: please bring back Babineaux Redain soon.
    In the meantime, head to the bridge just northwest of Deleyn's Mill, as the quest can also be started at any time there. Although this is no substitute for the NPC who is supposed to bring you the quest once Daggerfall is complete.

    As you say, you can get that quest sequence by going to Deleyn's Mill, but agree it is kinda confusing when she doesn't appear...
    /Bug'ed it

    It's apparently "working as intended", but I have put forward the case that it is a bad intention to intentionally break someone's story progression.

    We just saved the king and she didn't spawn. Although a few days ago I thought she did on our alt characters. Did the patch this week break this again?

    As far as I know, she was never present at release (April 2014) and hasn't been seen since beta. Considering this breaks the story chain progression, I will always personally consider it a bug, but I think they removed her intentionally. (Why? Who knows.)

    If there are any instances where you would speak with Babineaux they are very few. Typically you need to start this quest by speaking with Bernard Redain.

    With that understood we will be closing this thread. Part of the confusion in this matter is from referring to an old, outdated thread which is why we typically do not allow for necros of old topics. If you still find that you are having difficulty we would suggest either starting a new thread here or contacting customer support.
