There is an exploit with shrouds we deemed unacceptable. It has to do with the shrouds themselves and not the quest. I will not give details on the exploit. We are unable to fix it in the time available before launch, so we disabled them. You can continue to petition for shroud removal if you are stuck and want to un-shroud. They will not be available immediately post launch either.
