Quest reset when item is lost

Post by justj99 » Wed Jan 13, 2021 3:09 pm

I know this would probably take some work, but I think it would save the GMs some time too. If a player drops (or doesn't pick up) a quest item, then the proper quest should reset after 24 hours. More or less, the same way that the escort quests, like rescuing Princess Resa, work.

As an example:
I buy the Zander fish for the chef. I take it, but later throw it away. After the reset, I would be able to buy it again. If the item is in my bag, the bank, tavern, or house, the quest would not reset.

One potential abuse could be if you drop an item so it is showing to be picked up and then you log until reset. You log in and the item is ready to be picked up, so hopefully you could not get the item/quest again. That would include chests as they are actually quests in the quest files, though one wouldn't think it.

Good catch! I suppose it would need to be only certain quests/items, but that's all I was thinking of anyway. I can't think of many (any?) quests where picking up an extra would help you.

Certainly, you're right about chests, though.

Edit: In that cheat the system frame of mind, you could just get the item every day and give it to an alt. Again, though, I think there are very few items/quests to watch out for that would be of benefit outside of chests.
