Innovative Questing/Exploration????

So back when this game was first being previewed, I remember there being talk about innovative questing. Mainly, if you see the goal of a quest and achieve it BEFORE you talk to the appropriate quest giver, that you still get credit for that quest.

So you can explore the world and do things without first having to talk to a bunch of quest givers and still get credit when you do end up talking to the quest giver.

Is this true? Or have they changed that?

This would be GREAT. I hate getting a "to do" list from static, boring quest givers then feel like I'm running errands. Rinse/repeat. When all I want to do is explore and get involved in situations naturally.

Thanks.

you have standard quest givers, then you may discover something in the world while exploring that cause you to have a quest, then you can talk to traveling merchants who will sell a unique item that create a quest - these merchants dont have a quest marker so you actually have to engage with them - and then quets have a chain so you start a quest and it leads to another.

i wouldnt call it innovative - i would call it "well paced and fun"

I haven't found many times where you went into places without a quest first, but you absolutely could. One time I killed a named bandit in a cave. After killing him, I looted him and was surprised that his head was a lootable item. After picking it up I got a quest saying I found a note on the bandit talking about a bounty reward for his head, and that I should take it to so-and-so in the city.

I found an item once on a body in a cave that gave me a quest as soon as I looted it. I don't know if you can do this with every item quest in the game, but at least some of them allow you to do it like that.
