So, I finally found a rescue mission after going a couple dungeon layers into an abandoned town's cave system. Unfortunately, when I started it...Well, the NPC didn't behave how he should have. I did one prior to the rebalance patch that broke existing worlds (Had to start over thanks to that...) and it played fine.
Now however, the NPC runs around the room like they're in a settlement, and cannot be "rescued." I'm not even told I have to wait for him at the door, and in the end I had to abandon the mission because it was impossible to complete.
Now what I want to know is was this a freak occurance? or will this happen every time? Because I am not keen on ending up stuck because every rescue mission is broken.
