    On the second part of the quest – DO NOT talk to him before you get the item. Otherwise he’ll jump the next time you go visit him regardless if you got then quest item.

    I tried to do this, and when I entered the area with the item to give to him, I heard him scream like he had just jumped off. So, I failed this one. There must be a time limit for getting back to him with the item.

      Update: Apparently, you’re not allowed to talk to him while he’s near the ledge until you have the item. I think this is the case anyway.

      Also, there is another achievement that requires you to get the pilgrim to a certain point in his quest and then stop, then let Cleofas commit suicide, and they cross paths.

      Unfortunately, I missed both of these on my first playthrough due to not knowing. You should add info about these things in the guide.
