I don't quite understand the crystal lotus quest. When I walk up to the crystal and tiles, they are always cycling already. If I say the required words to start the quest, there does not seem to be any change in the cycling except the journal says you admire the colored tiles. Do you have to restate that you seek the lotus after every failure? Secondly, do you have to get the combination right more than once? How do you know that you have been successful on any given attempt? I have 4 people and my self on our end who agree on the submitted sequence, but we invariably get the failed message. Somehow, I feel that the system is not recognizing our solution. This is why I ask if you have to say "I seek the lotus" before every attempt.
