    The quest does not say which Fighters Guild you should go to. The quest markers also try to lead you through DLC zones in a circle and never to the actual zone you need to go to for this quest. If you look at the world map when not in the correct zone for the quest the marker shows up on a 'boat' rather than at the correct location. You guys really need to fix quest markers, it is getting ridiculous how often this happens. Quests should never lead you to a DLC zone (whether you own it or not) if the quest doesnt reside in that zone.

    Looks like the article specifies you can go to the first zone (of your alliance) city Fighter's Guild, i.e. Daggerfall, Davon’s Watch, or Vulkhel Guard (depending on your Alliance). This would be the same place that you go to to pickup any part of the Fighter's Guild questline.

    Interestingly, clicking on the quest and then "show on Map" (on an EP toon) pointed me to the ship in Davon's Watch, not the Fighter's Guild.

    Also, when I spoke to Lyris the second time (next location after Fighter's Guild), I was supposed to use the Icereach Medallion somehow to be able to follow the magic trail. Except... that wasn't an option anywhere (not even from inventory). It turns out that I was standing slightly outside the area within which the item was usable... sigh.

    The trail, of course, immediately took me in the entirely wrong direction. It turns out that it goes in two different directions. If you find that you run out of trail really fast, you went the wrong way. Not your fault as player, just ZoS being dumb again.

    After this, you have to follow several further magic trails. Unfortunately, there is no thematic in-game way of being directed/led to the start of each trail. You have to go to journal and show the next point on your map. This is sorta valid in terms of general normal quest mechanics, but feels cheesy from a role-play perspective. An actual quest-item map would have been better.

    That said, it's nice to see the Hammerdeath arena get a bit of quest love. This area should be used more often. Likewise, I really enjoyed some of the new areas in the prologue quests - beautiful design. I just wish there were more lootable containers.

    I completed both prologue quests and unlocked the memento/title, but the Windhelm Scale Tunic outfit style remains locked. Is this a known bug? @ZOS_SarahHecker

    Why the hell do we need to get the quest from the store?

    There should be a container in your inventory after completing the quests. You'll need to consume it to get the styles.

    If it were an NPC standing in a random area, do you want to be the person in zone constantly telling people where to go to start the quest? Or would it be easier to just put a free quest starter in the store so it's easy to find where to go for all events like this? The system they have for starting quests for new zones and events seems like a good way to know exactly how to start things, once you know they will always be in the store for free.

    Who says the NPC has to randomly babble some crap like the stupid woman with her "Dragons in your homeland" line?

    Of all the intrusive NPCs I mind her the least, and I actually like her voice.
    I mean I feel like blowing someone's head with a shotgun with the dumb Fighter's guild *** with "The guild has need of you comrade!", and nothing comes even close.

    Stuga? Phew. Perfectly fine :D

    I will be frank, I forgot all about saving the skald king because I was too preoccupied with taking food pics. I even went ahead and single cropped each one. I really, really, really hope they wind up as new harrowstorm furnishings.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno Please let the team (or whomever designed the foods) know that they did a SUPERB job and it would be a delight if we can have them in the game (the ones that are shown in the screenshots in particular). Thank you!
