Diggy encounters many interesting quests while exploring Egypt, but definetely the most problematic ones are the “curse-quests”.
Each Egyptian god(dess) in the game lays Egypt under a curse and Diggy needs to lift the curse by completing all quests given by the priest(ess) and then by the god(dess) himself/herself.
Because this may sound a little bit difficult, let’s start from the very beginning 😉
The quest line in Egypt consists of the quests of the main map, god quests, father´s quests and side quests.
To proceed in the game, it is necessary to complete the main quest line, which includes the god quests and father´s quests. This way you will be able to reach another region - Scandinavia.
The gods quest line contains the locations of the following gods:
Each god(dess) has his/her own curse, which must be lifted. The curse of a god(dess) will be lifted, after Diggy completes all quests given by the priest(ess) of the particular god(dess) and then by the god(dess) himself/herself.
For example, this is the quest Black Cat on the Road (the upper image is always taken from the desktop version of the game, while the picture at the bottom is always from the mobile app):
As you can see, this quest window doesn't contain any button, which would take your Diggy directly to any mine. The only button that can be used will take you to camp and Rusty will most likely say: "Hi! I'm Rusty!"
So what can we do?!
The solution is pretty simple: In order to lift the Bastet's curse, it is necessary to complete all quests given by Bastet's priestess and Bastet. In other words, you do not need to pay attention to the quest Black Cat on the Road, at all 😉 Just make sure to complete all other currently available quests and after all quests in Bastet's questline are completed, the quest Black Cat on the Road will get completed and the quest window will disappear 🙂
HOWEVER, sometimes, the "curse-quests" (most often Black Cat on the Road or Dead Man Talking) appear in the game before the quest line of the particular god/goddess is presented. This means that the quest Black Cat on the Road appears among other quests in the quest log while you are working on any of the previous quest lines, for example Horus. At that time, your Diggy cannot talk to Bastet's priestess, nor Bastet, because he's working hard on lifting Horus' curse! What to do?
The best solution: nothing extra 😉 Just keep working on the main quest line and complete all quests in Horus' quest line. After Horus' quest line is completed, you will proceed to Bastet's quest line.
In other words, in order to get to the Bastet's quest line, it is necessary to complete all main quests in the previous quest lines, first.
To conclude this, it is necessary to remember the following:
The "curse-quests" are long-term and they are not bound to any particular location - therefore, there is no "dig button" in the quest window that would re-direct you to a certain mine.
These quests get completed automatically, as soon as the quest line of the particular god/goddess is completed (after Diggy completes all other active quests of the particular god/goddess' quest line).
Are there no active quests in your quest log?
If so, visit the following places and you will surely find somebody to talk to:
