Was fighting a harpy as the cut scene began. The harpy and my pet were still in combat [could hear it over VO] as Eir began speaking. At the end my character and Eir just sway and the game stopped responding. Can't finish that story step.
At least it's as bad as our friend who is getting the "Can not find mission" error on his level 41 Engineer since yesterday. Because ya'know, at least I can play somewhat.
