Known Bugs

  • There’s a bug that prevents you from selling items on the rewards screen after completing the Kulve Taroth Siege quest, if the item box contains the maximum number of that item (9999).
    • This bug prevents you from individually selecting and selling the item and jumps from the item icon to the Sell All option with the cursor.
    • This only occurs when you possess the maximum number of an item.

Before going out on the Kulve Taroth Siege quest, please make sure you do not possess (close to) the maximum number of any of the reward items.
