For the quest Circumstantial Evidence obtained from NPC Nrik at one of the towers (I don't remember which one), I have killed the 3 lizardmen, and their leader appears for a split second in the middle of the fray and then disappears.  After defeating the 3 lizardmen, I see the lizardman tracks and follow them to their end when I get a quest update and my journal then says to search the camp for evidence.  There is no camp at that spot, and there is no evidence.  I have deleted the quest and restarted it 3 times and the result never changes.  No camp and no evidence to collect to get the next updates.

I tried this quest several more times today.  Sometimes the lizardmen will suddenly turn non-aggro and stop fighting.  If I back out several steps after that happens, they turn aggro again.  When that happens, their leader never shows.  The rest of the time, the leader appears, but he vanishes a sec or two later.

Edit to add: One time while fighting the encounter while I had my merc (SS inquis) up, he somehow aggro'ed the leader.  I had to dismiss my merc to stop that encounter.

All right, I see why the evidence wasn't there.  I just checked in a fix for this.

Also, I'm pestering art about putting something there so it looks more like a "camp" and less like a "patch of purple grass".

I was seeing a camp right around the corner from the last footprint on the ground. Now there is nothing along that path. It went from a couple tents to a few things on the ground, and now the area is empty, and when I get there mobs magically appear. Sometimes I get ported by the prowlers into roaming mobs

Get to the spot, mob spawns and attacks me, I fight, then what I think is the named pops, and he attacks my merc, and stays non aggro. Yes, once again, the npc attacking merc bug rears its ugly head. And I am going to pester you guys until doomsday about this!  =P  Its been in game way too long, and in dungeon maker...time for that extra strength can of raid!  =)

Now it says search the camp for any acitivities, except I see no camp, or no sign or clue of what comes next. Though it sounds like you are working on this from what I saw above. But as of 10am PST time this morn, no clue how to go on from this step, or if the merc attacking npc/leader was part of the step that I might have lost somehow.

No camp. No evidence. Patches of purple grass every freaking where SMILEY

Also, If you're on the step to search the camp, if you bring up a mercenary and walk back to the original spawn point, the lizards and leader spawn again. The leader engages the merc and the merc engages the leader.

A hint in where the camp is would be appreciated.

I just had a revelation of sorts. Checking...

Yeah. it's got something to do with having a merc up and not having a merc and proximity. No merc I wander all around the area and nothing. With merc, I get spawns in the area I think the camp should be (only area big enough for a couple tents). But the spawns aren't visible until I get right on their spawn point. Much like the first camp you 'rescue' in the first area. If you have a merc, you get lizardman spawns when you enter the camp.

So this one is missing art, has mob visibility/proximity/merc issues, and has no clicky updates that are visible for the quest.

Actually, there are directions... of sorts.  SMILEY

The problem with the evidence not respawning should be fixed in the next push to beta, so you should be good to go.

Just did this quest, there are glowies on the ground for the footprints which is great but when you get to the camp it's more of the same glowies on the ground and an update but no real "camp" there, took me a couple mins to realize the glowies were now clickies and the updates I needed.

Another note is that Nrik shows up on the map in 2 locations

Yeah, going to talk to art tomorrow about the camp thing.  SMILEY  We'll get something in to make it more campish in any case.  SMILEY

Lizardman leader still spawns in the middle of the battle with the scouts and disappears. Shouldn't he be running away?

I'm not sure where else to put this: I've completed this quest, however this one and the ones after it (and the ones from Nrik at the same camp) have a feather and a book up all during the time you have a quest open with them - whether or not it's complete.

Also the 'blue dot' map help texts (white text) don't update. Should they?
