I had the quest objective in Act 1 set to a quest near the very end (The Imprisoned Angel) so I'd have access to all of the waypoints while farming, so I was very surprised to see one of the quest orbs for opening the Drowned Temple glowing bright blue, and active, in the Crypt of the Ancients.

I took a screenshot, showing the cursor displaying the little grasping hand indicating that you can execute an action on the selected item:


Sure enough, right after this screenshot, I was able to take the Beacon of Light, and the altar did its little animation of closing down afterward, but that was all. There was no checkpoint message, no quest update message, and it didn't seem to affect anything else. And the blue globe in the Warrior's Rest was not present at all.


- Inferno Act 1
- MPower set to 5
- Quest set to The Imprisoned Angel
- Solo game

Came here to post about this. So I guess I'll just verify it to be true.

the quest orb still active, in the Crypt of the Ancients in any quest selection/mp.

Still true, solo gamer here, different monster power level. I was temporarily psyched to possibly stumble upon a side quest or something. But no.
