Epic Madstone Crater Cannot Complete

I just ran Return to Madstone Crater and could not finish the quest, even though I killed the end boss, got the chest, returned to speak to Hworrl at the entrance. Everything seemed fine, except the quest did not complete. The status still said "Rescue Third Seer." The third seer had already broken the crystal. So, there was nothing for me to do. Just to be sure, I slagged all the way back to the 3rd seer. He was just standing there. No crystal. No monster.

I tried running it a second time. This time, when I got to the first seer in the cave, no skeletons and he just stood there doing nothing. I gave up. I couldn't talk to him or anything.

Did you exit, reset and go back in, or did you simply reenter?

Try chatting with him.before you do anything next time. You talk to him at the start and at the end. If you do the whole quest without talking to him the initial objective disappears and you cant complete the quest. There are several poorly designed quests like this.

There is one in feywild with a hut. There is an old lady to talk to at the start. If you don't talk to her at the start and do the quest, you can't finish it.

I know of many others as do other longtime players. I can't list them all or my post will turn into a book.

You dont need to talk to the giant at the start you can talk to him twice at the end, did you clear the starting battlefield area because that i think is required.
