I had just started a game and first leveled up to quest level 3 for some stupid reason. I walked over to a nice looking ruin, and it said something about some armor being in there, but I had to fight. It then asked, "Are you ready?" to which I replied, "Hell no!" and clicked accordingly (I hadn't even equipped me sov; he was running around buck nekkid on level 1!), assuming I could return when I was ready. Instead, the quest site vanished.
Could you make it so that they remain until cleared or failed?
