Mindless Violins quest plothole: Cannot tell Olga to visit Mercury
Closed, ResolvedPublic


What is happening:
In the quest Mindless Violins, Mercury tells you to deliver medical supplies to Swift and to tell Olga Ufstig to report to her. When you next talk to Swift, dialogue indicates that you do indeed give them the supplies, but you never get the chance to actually tell Olga to report to Mercury.

What should be happening:
There should be at least one dialogue option where you tell Olga to report to Mercury, and Olga should react to this dialogue option being selected.

Steps to reproduce the issue:
-Launched game, created brand-new Pegasus character. (Pegasus because part of the Mindless Violins quest takes part in the Heartlands, and the ability to fly makes navigation and travel there easier.) Talked to Windhover to skip tutorial and foal arc quests and get straight to cutie mark quests.
-Completed Sugar cutie mark quest (original bug found on a Pegasus that took the Medic quest), then The First Day of Our Pony Lives. (These are the prerequisite quests for Mindless Violins.)
-Went directly to Ponydale to speak with Midnight Breeze (the quest-giver) and start the quest.
-Progressed through the quest to the point where the player talks to Mercury for the first time.
-Selected option "They're fine, Swift just got a wing sprain and Olga got hit kind of hard."
-Mercury's dialogue indicates that she wants Olga to see her, and the player can then respond with a blatant, "I'll see if I can get Olga to come."
-Returned to Olga and Swift. The player does not get the option to say any words of dialogue whatsoever, and is immediately sent to Pyrite without being able to select any dialogue options, much less a dialogue option where the player tells Olga to head to Mercury.

This is a valid point. It might have been an oversight, but I'll see what I can do to get an option for that added in.

Thank you for letting us know.
