IMPORTANT UPDATE Feb. 2013: A workaround to this bug can be found with FunkyMonkey’s post on 2nd page. Please try it!
I can confirm that it worked for me, but I followed the steps EXACTLY as he suggested.
Ships of the Line story mission is bugged at this point in the mission:
“Strike at the southern docks of Arah with the captured ships.”
subset: “Regroup with the team and assess the situation.”
-The entire beach is cleared of enemies.
-All of the team has been resurrected.
-I am with the team, inside the green circle.
-Though Elli offers a “Talk” option, nothing happens.
This is the third time I have attempted this story mission, only to hit this same issue, at this same point, each time. I thought that perhaps with the latest patch I might get lucky.
I cannot progress my story and I’m extremely frustrated that even though this is a progress-blocking bug that is well known, nothing has been done.
Please fix this.
Edit: I notice that Scholar Inkblood and his pet Amphebe are alive, but have stopped walking toward the green circle with the rest of us. Is the fact that they are not in the green circle the reason? They will not move.
