i did the mask thing, that worked. but still got Crimzon Days. Also... I cannot pickup the Allegiance Quest on my other two characters. Could this glitch be causing this?
No, Crimson Days is a UI issue only. We're currently investigating that. It doesn't affect any part of the game. Have your other characters gone through the introductory quest of playing Gambit Prime, getting a synthesizer, then playing The Reckoning?
