This quest first appeared when the 3-mans were launched in December. Talk to Gandalf in the Prancing Pony, and he sends you to Elrond in Rivendell, who sends you to three people, each of whom tells you about one of the 3-mans.
Complete each of the 3-mans, then go back and talk to Elrond.
I have a couple issues with this quest:
1) I completed the above portion of it before, yet upon logging in today I picked up the exact same quest and went through the exact same steps, as if I'd never done it nor completed any of the 3-mans, and;
2) After going through all the 3-mans again, I'm sent back to Elrond. He thanks me, and now the quest is at a point at which it says, "Wait until Master Elrond summons you again." I think this is where the quest ended before as well. Even if this step is new, it really seems like a "Elrond will talk to you again when the 6-man and 12-mans come out" step. Well, they're out, and the quest stalls here.
Was this quest even supposed to be in the game? It's listed as a level 1 quest, although you need to be at least level 20 to do the Erebor instances. It seems like the quest should have a continuation with the second part of U10 that just launched, but it doesn't.
All in all, this quest seems like it was sort of worked on then just forgotten. There's not even an in-game mail to tell you to talk to Elrond, like we had with the In Their Absence quests or the little chain for the RoI instances. I only know of the quest because a friend stumbled upon it a few days after the first part of U10 launched.
So, jwbarry, or anyone who might know - what's going on with this quest? Should it be updating? Should it not exist at all?
