    • Vanilla Version of the game Enhanced Cat03 Sep 2016 06:12

      In the vanilla version(unpatched) version of the game, the lady that sells the Enhanced Cat recipe does NOT sell it after you complete her quest regardless of the outcome, simply spewing generic lines or nothing at all. If you are playing unpatched and happen to be in the area, your only two bets are either suck it up till NG+ or load a prior save point where you haven't done the quest in question. This affects multiple merchants on the vanilla variant but unknown how many and which ones. Also a sneaking suspicion it is the one's involved in quests however remains to be seen.
