Ok so: I was able to start the quest, infiltrate the camp, acquire the ale, and escape with it successfully. Ake wasn't along the coast with his boat. I went up the cliffs where the mission started and Ake was just standing there and wouldn't interact. Then suddenly, a zealot appeared and Ake jumped OFF THE CLIFF and started fighting her????? And kept requesting for me to revive him. I kept getting myself killed and restarted the entire game to try and reset everything, but nothing works 😭
