Help with Alfin cliwent order

I'm trying to do the Alfin client orders bnut I cannot get him to join me at all. When I interrect with the terminal,all it tells me is that the partner selection is limited in this current quest???

There are two possibilities:

  1. Someone in the Quest instance already has Afin as their NPC Ally.
  2. You have set your instances to not allow NPC Allies.

The first can be resolved by starting a new instance with a password set up to block other parties. The second can be fixed by going to the matching settings at the Quest Counter (I'm not sure what the exact name of the option is, it's either just Change Settings or Settings for Matching), and make sure that the check mark that restricts Allies is not ticked.

Well that was stupid...
