IGNORE THIS. I WAS WRONG.
I need to get more sleep… This is the second post I made on this forum yesterday that was just outright incorrect. >_<
So I just recently hit 94 on my Skelemancer Cabalist, and to celebrate, a friend of mine gave me a bunch of awesome gear and helped me run through SR on Ultimate to see how well my build synergizes with her Death Knight. It turned out to work really well! We started on Shard 15, and worked our way up to successfully clearing Shard 25 with relative ease (though the final boss was a tad rough).
However, perhaps because I didn’t do the starter FG quests, I never picked up the “Entering the Shattered Realm” quest. This meant that when we cleared Shard 15, I instantly received and finished “Exploring The Shattered Realm”, which gave me 1 Skill Point. I got another Skill Point by finishing Shard 25, from “Conquering The Shattered Realm”.
Unfortunately, now that I’ve gone back and finished Act 1 and unlocked The Emissary’s quest, and then worked my way up to doing what should have unlocked Entering the Shattered Realm… the quest isn’t there. I can’t pick it up, so I can’t get the reward. And clearing from Shard 1 to 5 didn’t give me the reward, either.
So my Cabalist is sadly screwed out of one Skill Point (out of a maximum of 248). Not the end of the world, but certainly frustrating. I wanted to let everyone know not to do what I did, which is why I made this post.
