Can you add a marker or indicator that points towards a selected quest?

"Somewhere in [region]" is a bit vague.

Thanks, keep up the great work!

I believe not directing you to the exact spot is one of the desired aspects of the Town Hall quests.

IMO on of the greatest things about the game is that it doesn't hold your hand, forcing you to find/explore/figure things out.

If the game was as large as a console open world game, maybe this feature would be nice...

I agree it is better without hand holding. I was just re posting this for a member of the E.K sub reddit.

I absolutely hate quest markers.

I still remember the first time I was playing Oblivion and received a quest to locate something that was missing... But I had a magical radar that told me where it was, in the middle of a forest. I was appalled by the lack of challenge, and how it took away the whole fun from searching and exploring. In the classic games, there's hidden things I missed; while it might have frustrated me at the time, the chance of failing to find things is what makes exploration fun, and not a chore.

However, it is true that the map UI is very limited at the moment. You should be able to locate dungeons and other landmarks you know, or player notes. Maybe one day.

I think that there should be a thing that points where to go and what to do in easy mode or maybe have the ability to turn it on and off
