    I'd like to suggest removing the hidden inventory check for ETC item "White Essence" from the "Return of Capt. Latanica" quest to make it more streamline.

    Reasons as below :
    • The requirement is easily circumvented by simply dropping the ETC and accepting the quest before picking it up, this makes the inventory check redundant.
    • The ETC has a "One of a Kind" tag so players are unable to accumulate more than one in their inventory which is already a limitation by itself.
    • The quest does not alert the player of the inventory check and auto terminates if the player attempts to start it with a White Essence on hand.
    TLDR :
    • Redundant.
    • Existing item limitation.
    • Unclear inventory requirement.

    I'd imagine this is more of a global restriction tbh, since other one-of-a-kind quests such as Papulatus's Crack quest function the same way. That being said it would be a nice bit of QoL to not have it.

    I spent about two weeks doing cpt latanica to get data for it and I 100% agree with this suggestion. The prequest is ass, even when hyper-optimized and scale to complete on 6 characters at once. It'd be nice if you could stockpile the essence, kinda like how some people camp mules at korean folk town to stockpile the goblin etcs.

    The check will be removed for next patch.

    It was half-broken to begin with anyways, which is why the game allows you to see the available quest despite in theory not meeting all the availability conditions.
