John Wolf won’t let you open up his missions from the front. You’ve gotta sneak onto the steps behind him and steal the precious missions from him. Been this way for a while now.
lol yeah, I noticed that too! There are a couple quest givers out there where you need to be positioned a certain way in order to get the mission.
Wolf is worst of all them but also those children in Shadowy Forest or Dragan - you need to stand in front of them, no approaching from side, like a proper person.
omg, I thought it was only me…
yup those are especially annoying I think, took me forever to figure out where I needed to position myself to pick up there quests.
He! Now I understand why all people are moving so much around him, me included
This was flagged during beta.
Lots of things were reported during beta that are still here.
Both Danny and John you have to look down on them to get the missions lol
True, always got annoyed at it but kind of got used to it.
But it could easily be fixed so please Funcom
Reticle goes green for me, but nothing happens unless I get behind him. There are a couple of angles in front I can get him to talk, but you can’t consider finagling yourself into very specific angles and distances “working”, can you?
The problem is not about MAKING it work, it does work, eventually.
But you have to aim it, an annoyance compared to other NPC that are pretty much “Point around it” type.
I believe the problem comes from the wolves that have their “box” being way too large compared to the size of the animal, and thus covers John himself : it looks like you are targeting John, but it is in fact the wolf which is why you can’t interact
I also think this is where the problem is. We all know how big a heal bubble is around a pet and this guy has two either side of him, which i think interferes with our targeting of him rather than any of the other NPC’s
Danny at the Skate park is also another who has awkward targeting, i have to look down onto him or i pick all the quests around him.
Reticle targeting was a wonderful forced addition to this game, wasn’t it?
While we’re at it, when you do click the missions they clip down below the edge of the screen sometimes, you have to click the middle ones to make the bottom ones accessible.
Mostly in part due to my ability bar being on the bottom of the screen but still an issue.
I don’t sneak behind him, I climb on top of him! Have to do the same with Luminita.
Oh yes, shes another one
Red does this, too I’ve noticed. If you stand in any way where Kyra is behind him, you’ll get her dialog menu up instead of Red’s missions. You have to stand so that there’s absolutely no way you could possibly be looking at Kyra.
Paul Gamelin, too. When approaching from his left, he’ll ignore me and his wifey needs to shout past him regarding whatever it is I wasn’t actually looking to ask her about.
