    A Polished Pendant

    I've tried completing this quest (and the escort that follows it) on two of my lowbie alts over the past few days. Pengail is never there since someone is always doing the escort quest. A couple days ago, I waited for about 5 minutes at his spot on my Captain - waiting for another player to finish the escort. As soon as he spawned, another player came up and "ninja'd" him to do the escort. I waited about 10 more minutes (killing the named goblin in the area about 3 times). When Pengail finally respawned, another player ninja'd him.

    I gave up finishing the pendant quest and the escort because I didn't want to spend my entire evening camping his spawn point.

    Fast-forward to tonight, and I notice my Lore-master has the pendant quest. It's green, and it's the last quest for her in the western Lone-lands. I hike over to Pengail, only to find that someone's doing the escort quest. This quest will likely go unfinished on my Lore-master as well since she's nearly out-leveled it anyway.

    I'm not sure what can be done, but I wanted to bring it to the Dev's attention that these two quests can be very difficult to complete.

    Why not form a group? Then several of you could complete the quest at the same time.

    I was grouped on my captain, but not on my LM. In each instance, some random person just happened to come up exactly when he respawned.

    I guess it's just one of the consequences of playing on a large server.

    It's your server .... play at an off time or form groups? This has nothing to do with the quest content (unlike the escort, I think, which is difficult on level, if you can't heal Leroy), and everything to do with the players around you. You were standing there, saw him respawn twice, and let someone ninja him? Were you in another window or afk?

    This happened to me too recently - that is, Pengail wasn't there and I had to wait. I just said "hang on, I need to hand in a quest" and that worked to stop people running up (did you try this?). I do agree that it's bad design to have two quests like this intersect, and there should be a handin there always.

    I was fighting goblin respawns when Pengail spawned. So I wasn't able to get to Pengail before other players tagged him first. Regardless, I realize that the problem stems from being on such a heavily populated server -- which I chose. I don't regret my choice of servers, but it's frustrating to have TWO quests tied to this NPC who is hardly ever available.
