2. so i must do a quest to allow the game to update the rep/exp/gold? tried that and it doesn't seem to do anything
well i am not sure why its not working for you but i have never been concerned about gold
back when i joined in 08 no one cared about it
and still no one does.
maybe its just the server or something
try like selling stuff etc or logging out and then closing it rather then just using the [x] on the top
