The Captives in the Crystals is a Side Quest in Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition. This quest is about breaking free three convicts imprisoned in ice crystals in Hiberheim. Each convict has its own dealings and having completed all 3, this quest is completed. While you may be morally inclined to help these prisoners escape, from a game perspective, killing them is a better option because of the loot they carry.

      Quest won't complete04 Sep 2016 20:04  

      This quest won't complete for me.<br/>I've freed all three and sided with the snowmen every time, but the quest is still there. I have also already completed all of the main quests in that area. Any ideas on how to resolve it? I'm not sure, but I think the quest might have been bugged from when I killed the Yeti. The snowmen actually did the last hit on the Yeti, and my log does not say "We killed Haizea" but it does say we killed the other two. Maybe you have to actually get the last hit on the prisoners in order to resolve the quest?
