Quest not working

at a certain point in the quest ‘in the shadows of starlight’ you have to follow someone and once i did follow this person i couldn’t place the item to continue and i’ve been stuck here for 6 hours not being able to move forward with the story, i can only think to restart the quest but there is no such option, help?

i am having that same issue. i cant figure it out. did you ever figure it out?
