try marking your location, porting to the basilica, and then porting back to your mark. this is helpful for when you lose connection and then are later unable to interact with any objects in the live world.

"Bambi is my old name. Now.. Now they call me Deer Knight."
I keep going to the Crystal Stand but nothing is happening. Am I supposed to battle the Karuvian Scargiver and the Gurtok Demon first?
If you are talking about the big, blue crystal, than no. I have already activated it and I have only beaten 2 of the 4 bosses. i'm not sure why it doesn't let you. If you keep having problems where quests do not work, try asking on of the people who work here. hope this helps!
