I've been getting stuck on 'Touching The Sky' for a while, now. Most of the info on the quests' glitch states that restarting the quest itself does not work, and that the quest mark disappears entirely.
After trying to restart the quest myself, I went to every wall of the first Chantry trying to find the portal, in case the glitch was just a visual one. It turns out, that it may just be a visual glitch! The portal is against the wall directly behind the center basin, appearing like a regular wall.
Even without the quest marker showing, I was able to get in and complete the quest.
Once against the wall, you may see a 'Open into Darkfall Passage' icon appear in front of you, as you would see a 'Open Door' icon anywhere else in the game. The quest markers return once you enter Darkfall Passage itself, and you'll be fine from there!
Note; You do not have to complete the entire dialogue with Gelebor to access the portal. After the necessary information is already given, you can go right into the passage.
I play on PC/Steam/Legendary, and...Each time I made this quest, it didn't work: I couldn't take the first water...The bowl is empty, dry, no water, no wine, no tears, no sweat (even mine!)...Nuthin'!
Could anybody help a desperate (And thirsty) french guy...Thanks A LOT!
O, Dear...Mods are far out of reach: to me, a PC is just a typewriter below a TV screen!
In fact, I use setstage"ID"/55, but to no avail, so I jump to setstage/100...But I would prefer to know why the first bowl was empty.
Anyway, thanks for your answer...Carpe diem.
Thank you so much for this, I was also running round like an idiot trying to find the portal, this worked XB1. I found this in the to prevent a fatal control throw against a wall in frustration lol... :-)
