Vault of Ice Bug

So there's been a couple times where I've done the vault of ice quest and at the very end it tells me to talk to shalek the wise. One of my teammates usually beats me to it to talking to him because I always team up for it. But when I leave the dungeon it's telling me I still need to talk to shalek the wise in the vault of ice, so I basically need to restart the dungeon over again to finish the quest. I'm not sure if this is a bug in the game or if I actually need to talk to him myself. If anyone can tell me how to by pass this it would be much appreciated, thanks!

this sort of thing happens in other dungeons too - and it also affects some of the books in the wizard city book quest.

The dungeon of in the Palace of Fire has the same issue - one person can use the staff to reveal where the order of the fang is and anyone else that needs to do that to satisfy the quest is forced to start the dungeon over.

Usually the best work around is to just solo the dungeon so no one can beat you to turning in the quest.

The same just happened to me in Vault of Ice, almost finished with it. Then I had to speak with Shalek the Wise, but my quest arrow had me go all the way back to the start. When i got there, he wasn't there. So did the last fight, which the group had already almost finished, and did not receive the credit for completion.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who's had this issue. I feel like it's a glitch in the game when you have to talk to Shalek the Wise at the end of the dungeon. As for the final battle it's super annoying when that happens and the group you are teaming up with doesn't wait for you.

I remember having that issue with one of my wizards for the Throne room of Fire dungeon, so maybe it's just a bug in krokotopia? I'm just glad I'm not the only one having an issue with this.
