    I'm trying to track this down, but I haven't been able to reproduce the issue where the objective is "Speak with Tonn" but he won't bring up the conversation to pick your next mission.

    I have found a situation where the "Clear the beach of undead" objective can appear to stall because some of the enemies you need to defeat aren't very obvious, especially if you go directly from tower 2 to tower 3 instead of backtracking through the caves. I've also found a case where that objective can stall in multiplayer. I have one report of Tonn stalling at tower 2, but it's unclear exactly where it's stalling. (The report doesn't indicate if he finished blowing up tower 2 or not.)

    I spent about 10 extra minutes running around in the instance looking for anything that I could kill and couldn't find anything. I tried initially to play it out as intended by just following the group and killing everything as we saw it. I also ran ahead and cleared the entire instance, starting with tower 3, then the rest of the cave and towers 1 and 2. No luck.

  • Where exactly is it stalling? There are a couple of different break points being reported in this thread. What's your current objective?

    On my first attempt, Tonn stucked in front of tower 3 - he was supposed to blow it, but he didn't do anything. Then I restarted cleaning up all the mobs and it solved this part.
    My current is after destroying tower 3 and cleaning up the beach. The next step is "Speak with Tonn" but he don't quest-respond. It's only availble the 'greet' option.

    Edit: I just tried with my other character and I had the same bug. I just can not talk to Tonn, the quest speech is disabled. I'm giving up for now, so I'm going to level up to 80 on open world.

  • I had to run ahead and kill every thing before starting the quest. Pretty crazy that this #1 is still a bug after so much time, and #2 that people have to complete this quest in a manner not intended by the dev team.

    I did the mission twice before I started looking for answers. The first time I couldn't get Tonn to run down the hill and plant the last bomb. The second time, I was getting the final cutscene conversation, but then couldn't talk to Tonn to complete the mission, apparently he wasn't standing in the exact spot he was supposed to be in.

    My third time through, I killed everything before speaking to Tonn to begin the escort. If you are meant to clear out every undead before the bomb explodes then the timer is very unforgiving. The second major thing is that even before planting the bombs there are undead trapped inside the structures, and you have to get creative in your ways to get them out. It seems that the towers have very vague collision physics when talking about the enemies within them so they path right inside it and get stuck there.

    Tonn won't speak to me after the 3rd tower is down. Tonn says 'Hello', 'Speak' and 'Excelsior'. I have gone back and killed some mobs to no avail. I can't believe I have to do this quest multiple times in order to get credit. When I started the quest, Tonn's bunch wouldn't keep up. After the 2nd tower, they led me to the 3rd, which seemed like quite a change.

    Round 2: I carefully killed every single mob in the instance. It worked. The video of that perv Tonn came up (he better not mention my big guns again) at the end but I hit skip to the end, (it's a reflex, I'm just not into lore) and got the instruction to 'Speak to Tonn'. The jerk is just sitting there ignoring me again. Again, the quest is stuck.

    Really, it shouldn't be to hard to duplicate this error. Just run through it as fast as you can, pretending you don't know every mob has to die. It's glitching for a lot of us.

  • Ok I believe I found and fixed the issue with Tonn becoming unresponsive at the end of the chapter. (Coming to a future update, as usual.) I'm continuing to look at the problem where he stalls at one of the other towers, but so far I can't reproduce it--I've only seen it once in about 20 play throughs.

  • Ok i finally was able to complete this quest on like my 12th try. Here is what I did: BEFORE you talk to tonn in the very beginning, clear out literally every monster yourself. Go from tower to tower killing every monster. at the third tower, I even killed the monsters that would come at you after exploding the third tower. Go through everything. Kill everything. after you kill everything you can, THEN talk to tonn. watch his whole cut scene just to be safe. walk with his group to explode the towers, and kill the spiders in the cave that spawn after the second tower. just explode the 3rd tower and watch the whole cut scene just to be safe. the talk option should be available after the cut scene. hope this helped.

  • Attempt number 5 was successful. Thanks for the tips, everyone! From what I can tell, after clearing every living enemy from the map, one undead spawned inside the first tower. I managed to use an area attack to draw it out before the tower exploded. I don't know if that made the difference, or not, but I was able to speak to Tonn afterward.

  • I solved this by walking around find all remaining Risen Thralls some even buried under the tower wreckage

    Did you managed to also get rid off the bug where the mission objective is to talk to Tonn, and pick the way to destroy the big ship, but the conversation doesnt start? thats also a thing....
