Why can't I start the Thunder quest?

Been trying to start the quest to get Thunder through Stewart but he just keeps saying it's not the right time. What does this mean? Is it because I have one of these skill quests still active? If so, which ones should I drop/finish so I can start the quest.

    I do believe it's the magic quest you have that you will need to complete before starting a new skill quest.

    What Ktty said; Flash Path is an advanced skill quest, and you can only learn one at a time. As such, you'll need to finish it before getting Thunder, or any other skill quest that counts as an advanced skill quest, like Hail Storm, the Music Bottle quest for Musical Knowledge, and a few others.

    I quit that quest (also because you need thunder to finish it) but he's still saying the same dialogue. I can't quit any of the others, but they aren't listed as advanced skill quests. Any ideas?

    It's probably Artifact Investigator. The rule that you could only learn one skill quest at a time was abandoned before Chain Slash was released, so I doubt it would be any of those. The Rest skill quest you have is from after the life skill uncap so it's even more recent. Artifact Investigation is the oldest of those skill quests by release date.

    You're talking to him with a Lightning Wand equipped, right?
    Not any of those fancy ones like Savage Lightning Wand, or a staff, just a regular Lightning Wand?

    Has to be a normal lightning wand. Nothing else will trigger the quest. Just did this on my giant recently.

    Yeah now for some reason he's giving me the quest line for Hailstorm? Even with the plain Lightning Wand equipped? Do I have to finish that quest before I'm able to get the Thunder quest?

    Strange. You shouldn't have gotten the Flash Path quest without knowing Thunder. According to the Wiki, you need to have rank F Lightning Bolt, Lightning Shield, Lightning Mastery, and Thunder in order to unlock it. Check your skills to make sure you don't already have Thunder. If you don't, I suggest putting in a support ticket.

    The real Sherlock has come forth. Yeah there's no way you could have the quest Flash Path without knowing Thunder already. I'm betting the original poster got Thunder and forgot about it.

    Sometimes the skills that are down the long list of skills can be easily skipped over.

    No problem. We all have our brain fart moments sometimes.

    Sometimes you just scroll past it and never notice it there. I remember I did that once with catering when I kept scrolling past it and kept missing it and I was like, where is my catering?
