ok, so I have a friend that is a grandmaster and he needed help in Azteca with a side quest,this was because he once helped a friend in Azteca. so I helped him, and eventually he got to the quest where you free jade wind-sun in saltmeadow swamp. when he got access to the tree with her cage in it, I asked if the quest was to free jade wind-sun, and he said yes. I told him this was the main quest line, I am sure this is the masin quest line because he had to fight ponce de gibbon, he got access to the teleporter to saltmeadow swamp, and he gt access the that passage way to saltmeadow swamp. is this a bug or something that has always been here?
I don't know what to say to your friend other than that he just saved himself a lot of time and money. I don't even know how that's possible. But it begs the question: if he continued his actual quest line, what would happen when he reached azteca? You can complete multiple quests at once so would he gain double the rewards? He'd level twice as fast as everyone and gain doubles of all one-time items. Hopefully kingsisle won't ban him or anything.
