    Fixed! Thank you.

    Also, be sure to post your character names folks, so I know who is helping out!

    I just completed One-Wit Russel's quest (which is evidently named [One-Wit Russel]). It took approximately 20 mins of killing in Blackburrow on a toon around level 10 before the hat dropped. I've added it to the wiki but want to ask, did you intend it to be [BIND ON EQUIP]? If so, would the [NO DROP] bound version still work for the quest turn-in?

    Anyway, I logged the whole thing and will read through it more thoroughly later today to add it to the wiki, but there's one major snag: he never delivered the reward! He gave the emote that he put on his hat and disappeared, leaving behind sandals. The emote was, "One-Wit Russel throws his hat on his head, and in the blink of an eye, he dissappears. All that is left are a pair of ratty sandals. You pick them up in astonishment." No such sandals materialized, and nor did One-Wit Russel disappear as indicated by the emote. The journal entry also remained incomplete. Did I do something wrong? This was the character with whom I found the cap and did the turn-in.

    Btw, is this guy ol' One-Eye Murt's brother? :monocle:

    EDIT: Also noticed the misspelling "gnolles" early on in the dialog and an extraneous single quotation mark at the end of departure emote

    I found the bug and it is fixed! Petition in game for a reimburse of the hat so you can turn it in again. Threw you some fame, also!

    Aha, got it working today. The prize is pretty cool, too. Very memorable little quest! I might ask, when the player is given the option either to lend a hand or to "lie" and tell the poor man he's invisible and to charge on into Blackburrow, is that an alignment shift opportunity, or just flavor?

    Before I forget, I noticed three instances of Kirlin, Priestess of Althuna saying "weilds" in place of "wields". I've also become 99% convinced that the fun little proc on the Guard of Mercy is actually broken. When I was wielding it at level 11, I constantly noticed "You will is insufficient to command this weapon" or whatever the line is, but once I hit the rec level and went back into combat, I never once saw a heal proc. I am guessing that it is indeed casting the Minor Healing -- but on the bash target! This would explain the presence of proc messages prior to reaching the rec level yet none whatsoever at 12 and above, as casting a beneficial spell on an NPC usually gives no message whatsoever. If, for some reason, this puts Minor Healing out of the running, an alternative might be Blessing of Light, a spell currently not found as a proc on any item in game and which only targets the self.

    I am trying to do the Grayback quest in Sundered Mountains, and it was working like normal, he spawned, bu then i died while trying to kill him. Came back a few hours later, and he would not spawn again, I destroyed the head on my char, and killed a few more yetis to get a new one. However he still wont spawn.
    Was this quest ment to only have one try at it?
    Thanks

    Greyback is fixed and should spawn again after a failure.

    Has anyone done either the Kelethin lost child quest or the Fearstone spying quest and have feedback?

    Guard Flipik gave me shaman boots as quest reward, instead of appropiate boots for my shadowknight.

    Not sure if its a bug or not, but the vulfwere pups for the first guard flipik quest drops two types of Vulfwere pup fang. Both with the same name but one is no drop and turn in able.

    Some quests require you to hand the reward back to the quest NPC in order to cycle through and get your class appropriate reward. Maybe this is like that?

    The newbie quest for Jeslyn Truewind in Greater Faydark is bugged. I just completed both choices with my character Ryuujiin and a box character. The first choice of telling her she doesn't need to do anything finishes up with 10p and a faction increase, hailing her again she tells you about Jeffy. The second dialogue option which demands "payment" at the end of the quest she threatens to call the guards on you and you get 7000 exp, however repeatedly hailing her keeps giving the 7000 exp.

    Hrm, I am unable to recreate this. It looks like both of the reward branches both boot you to a non reward hail text. Are you sure she kept giving the 7k exp?

    Okay I found the problem! It was a missing quotation mark. It should be fixed, and I threw you some fame!
