    When are you guys ever going to fix

    ... the Master Craftsmen? Having the quest rings constantly on for The Last Homely House and Thorin's Hall is just irritating. I know it's a small thing, but it's been months and at least several patches. Is this fix really that hard?

    It is indeed somewhat irritating. I keep getting this frisson of expecation that there is something new there, and then I remember ....

    This is nothing more than one of the coders having some twisted fun with the completionists out there.

    While annoying, its at the same time kinda funny

    I certainly wouldn't put it up there as something I need to see fixed.. but there's no denying it's an annoyance.

    I hate this! Every time I'm near the Last Homely House I think, "Oh, I'd better go in and see what that ring is." RAR!

    Its low priority. Changing hobbit run animations and icons for potions is obviously more important.

    I have turned in that quest in Thorins Hall 73 times! I am determined to win, I will be going back in tonight and I may even muster up a group this time.

    I am a moron.

    Re: When are you guys ever going to fix

    There was a post by a dev a few months ago that they left it like that because it was a better option than leaving people who switch crafting professions and lose supreme tier then switch back unable to regain supreme tier in that profession.
    I want my "The Venomous" title back.

    They don't need the quest ring illuminated for that... They don't need quest rings on the craftmaster for changing professions. It could work the same way, as a dialog option.

    If they for some reason must keep it as a quest, make it so it's level 1 quest or whatever they need to do to flag it as "trivial" so it doesn't show up on the minimap and annoy everyone.

    That seriously sucks. Given how they version quests now, I wonder how hard it would be to 'version' the Supreme Mastery quests when you change professions? Leaving these as repeatable (I didn't realize that was the case) seems like such a bad solution.

    Re: When are you guys ever going to fix

    I think they have tried to fix this recently (Vol 3 Bk 1 perhaps?). The reason I say this is that I recently picked up my Minstrel and used the craftsmen to unlock T6 of Jeweler and Prospector. The interesting thing is the quests to upgrade those professions is no longer available to her, but the SM cook quest (which I used to get T6 cooking many many months ago) still is.

    Bottom line - whatever they tried to do seems to fix the issue for people using the quests for the first time, but characters who used them before the change are still stuck with the eternal ring.

    /signed btw... I really wish they would clean this up so I will know when there is a real quest avail in Elrond's crib...

    Not only there, but also in Michel Delving.. at least when I took my 65 out there recently, I saw it (and surely enough I clicked on it). So not just at the House, but the one in Delving could be taken away too

    On a side note, it is fixed for new characters/craftsmen. I leveled a Woodworker to SM this winter and he does not have the constant quest ring. But, it's still broken for the older characters.
