Zhurlong's Boots bug?

It's been a long time since I've played BGEE, so apologies if I'm missing something.

I'm in Chapter Two and I still have the Chapter One quest "Zhurlong's Missing Boots".

I've killed every hobgoblin I can find in area AR3800 including the ones near 1900, 2670 and none dropped Zhurlong's Boots. I did get a bunch of gems, arrows, swords, etc. I waltzed through this area earlier but never came near this location (I kept to the path). I will try a reload from earlier saves to see if they show up.

Game version is 2.6.5.0 - were the boots moved to another location perhaps? Thanks! -Fred

    The hobgoblin with the boots doesn't just show up in AR3800. It also appears in AR3900, at (1951, 2605).

    Whichever one you kill first drops the boots, and sets a global variable "NotHaveBoot02zh" to 1. Once that variable is set, any remaining instance of that hobgoblin loses the boots. The hobgoblin, in both places, is pre-placed and can be distinguished from other hobgoblins with its green outfit.

    At least, that's how it works in 2.5, and I don't see any reason this would be changed.

    @jmerry - Thank you for the response!!

    This is a false alarm on my part! I turns out there was a "hidden pile" - it was behind a bush and I couldn't see it. Maybe I need a "pile highlighting" feature or just better glasses LOL!

    NearInfinity came to the rescue for me. I ran the latest version of that, loaded the game, opened AR3800 from my SAV file and sure enough one of the piles had BOOT02ZH.ITM (Zhurlong's Boots) in it. I went to the X/Y location and sure enough there was a pile there I just couldn't see. Hah! I'll have to be a bit more careful...

    Oof, a bigger problem I ran into is that I never picked up Mirianne's letter and that's gone from the area. Think I'm just going to do this area over again...

    If you press tab, it'll highlight the piles. There's also a toggle in the corner with the AI and the Select Party button you can click to turn it on and off.
