First,t these /loc's, while accurate, make it far more difficult to find these merchants. SO i have listed the buildings / businesses they are in as an alternate means of locating them.

Secondly, the order in which the merchants are listed makes you back-track and run all over. Do them in this order so you are not doubling your path distance:

Ton Fireprde is in the Firepride's Smithy building, in the back -- this is alot easier to find that running around hitting /loc every three seconds

Tasya Huntlan is the front counter girl in the Lion's Mane Inn

Nesiff Tallaherd is inside Nesiff's Wooden Weapons building

Fhara Semhart is in Fhara's Leather & Thread

Mar Sedder is in the brown building next to/scrosss from the blue Bard's hall named THe Windspirit's Song

Fish Ranamer is in the building named Fish's Ale

right across the street is Voleen Tassen in the building named Voleen's Fine Baked Goods

Captain Rohand is in the Mermaid's Lure building out on the main docks

And third, you only need to say "Tax Collection" to get the NPC's to give you their coin. Not the full sentence stated above.

Hope this helps expedite your quest.

my friend couldn't do this quest because Qeynos was KoS to him so we did this Quest called Bone Chips (Qeynos) it sent him from KoS right to Ally.
bad qeynos faction
# Jun 28 2013 at 7:33 AM Rating: Default
you can do this on an evil character with bad qeynos faction if you have an enchanter or bard friend. I -think- he ate my items mezzed but took them charmed, but it may have been the other way around so check to be certain.

You can't mezz/charm the merchants you get the taxes from, however, the coins are tradeable. So you just need to have Vicus mezzed/charmed/whatever works.
IF you are IKSAR...

----------------------------------

You WILL NEED FACTION DUBIOSLY (or better) with [ Flynn Merrington ] in order him REPLY properly.

http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=540

YOU can raise the facction using this quest, but have negative hits with Guards and Merchants, so, you will need to do Bonechips quest ( Qeynos ) again, or hunt alot in BlackBurrow for be non kos in all the city.

If you cannot talk to Flynn because of faction, you might be able to log another character, do the tax collection at Flynn, and put the result in your shared bank.

I did this with my bard, and then gave the tax to my main.
better than hours of factionning.
Flynn must die!

After collecting from Flynn slaughtering him on the spot gives pretty good faction + bayle guards and merchants, - scale and bayle

And its also very satisfying to turn the little sob into a grease spot!

Ctrl + F
# Mar 08 2012 at 10:55 AM Rating: Good
All NPCs in both North and South Qeynos (except Flynn) show up using Ctrl + F.

Being listed in the Yellow Pages is bad when the tax collector is after you!

It seems to be bugged now. Flynn Merrington did neither response nor gave tax payment after I said keywords " 'I am a gnoll loving weakling who isn't fit to comb my feet"
Damn, I have spent 1.5 days on this 20 slots bag quest, really can't stand this problem on my last tax collection (I have collected 9)

Correction
There is no bug on this quest, it works well.
It was my wrong spelling of the keyword when having conversation with Flynn.
It should be "weakling" instead of my wrong spelling "weaking"
I got 20 slots bag too.(rewarded by serial quest Courier of Favor)

--notes:

:: saying "tax collection" or "<NPC's Name>Tax Payment" will result in the corresponding negative faction hit--regardless if their tax collection in inventory or not. thus, spamming "tax collection" will garner as many negative hits.
:: can walk up to any of the npcs in quest and say "tax collection" and get payment without first speaking to Vicus.
:: <NPC's Name>Tax Payment are Lore, but not No-Drop (oddly).
:: can do collection in any order; performed this walkthrough in order of names found in List of Debtors.
:: can completely skip to Flynn Merrington and bypass trip to Mira Sayer in QH.
:: Fhara Semhart did not respond to hails.
:: did not receive anything on final turn in giving Full Box and List at same time except for faction, experience, and coin. upon turning them in one at a time, giving Full Box first, then turning in List, received 1 Copper Amulet, 1 Turquoise, faction, experience, and coin.

Tax Quest in Qeynos

When I did this quest as a High Elf Mage I was not able to complete it. When I got to the last NPC Flynn he didn't answer correctly so I gave up on the quest cuz at lvl 30 it wasn't worth it to continue messing around. I went through the whole quest two times and still didn't work so I lost some faction, which is the only reason why I would want to finish this quest now, to get back the faction I lost with the merchants in Qeynos. However, my question is: Does it matter what class you are to do this quest? Only thing I can think of to do is to go back through the whole quest and do the NPC's in order of tax document is this what you have to do? This quest is not too bad for a 1st through 10th level character but any higher would be a total waste of time.

If saying "tell me about this list" does not work, try "give me the list" instead. I had to use the "give me the list" to get it.

I just completed this quest and was disappointed to see that in return for the combined box of tax money and list I recieved 17 silver and 19 copper.

If you want to waste half an hour and get nothing for your trouble , this is the quest for you.

After many of my pleads with Flynn Merrington in the Crow's Bar where you hear Crow complaints about some merchant Tubal from Highpass. But to get Flynn to speak ask about Mira Sayer, then tell Flynn what Mira said, Your faction standing with Circle Of Unseeen Hands got worse. Thats the last part to getting the 10th medal ,for a simple quest, now taking this Human Cleric level 7 to Luclin at Shadweavers Thicket to collect 16 ground spawning pala something berry for a nice ring.

I managed to get all the taxes from the merchants without conflict except for Captain Rohand. He does not respond. Is there a trick to getting him to give the due taxes? Ive tried hailing him, Ive tried to sell him items, Ive tried asking for it the way it is suggested here, and nothing.
Thank you ahead of time.

Using the Find button feature tracked him down to where he is Supposed to be, but at this time he is currently located upstairs above the spot where he should be. Tried all the same as above post, then went downstairs to where he should be and tried a hail. Nothing from that, but when tried 'Please pay your taxes', bingo it worked. just have to talk to his feet thru the floor I guess.

I tried to do this quest twice now. the first time after i had collected all the tax payments, i didn't get anything and the box was empty again. So i did the whole thing again and this time he won't even take the box from me, sayin' he doesn't need it.
Damn waste of time.....
Only good thing i got from it is the 10-slot box....

The quest has been nerfed. The reward is as follows:

Your Faction Standing with Antonius Bayle got better.
Your Faction Standing with Guards of Qeynos got better.
Your Faction Standing with Ring of Scale got worse.
Your Faction Standing with Kayne Bayle got worse.
Your Faction Standing with Merchants of Qeynos got better.
You gain experience! (1/8 blue at lvl 7)
You receive 16 silver from Vicus Nonad

Crappy quest, waste of time unless you're going for the faction.

When I did this quest, I skipped talking to Mira and went straight to the guy in Crow's and asked for it. Also, I didn't recieve any items for turning in the box but I did get 1pp, 19sp, 16cp. I'll take that over a ring any day.

Quest not too bad if you just keep the box. The factions did lower when collecting, but were regained when turned in with list. Last time I just kept the box and didn't take the list.

After reading the posts here, I decided that the tax collector must die. He was pretty easy to kill as a level 48 Chanter, one Discordant Mind followed by an Anarchy cleared up his cough permanently.

What surprised me were the faction hits...

Antonious Bayle worse.
Guards of Qeynos worse.
Ring of Scale better.
Kayne Bayle better.
Merchants of Qeynos WORSE?!?!

Whoda thunk it? I would have expected the Merchants to like me better. Just goes to show that ya never know what ya don't know, ya know?

He respawns after about two minutes.

Personally, when i found it i thought "hey a quest" so i started doing it... found all the NPC's no problem, but didn't know about Mira Sayer... I didn't want to make the poor woman cry anymore, and after talking to her husband I learned that Lord Elgnub, a gnoll in BB, stole their son, I kind of understood how she wouldn't want to pay taxes especially after losing her baby :( So i promptly destroyed the tax stuff to make her happier :) Currently hunting BB to get my faction back up with all the merchs. Sure you get a 10 slot box, and that's nice, but quest itself isn't worth the guilt, if you ask me. :)

this box is currently holding 10 stacks of bat wings in my enchanter's bank. and whoever said they have "plenty of space in their bank" if you're saying it because you have multiple of these boxes, you're wrong. the box IS a LORE ITEM, meaning you can only have one of them, PERIOD. but.. it is a nice free box =)

Darn, Darn, Darn, I should have read this site first, before doing the quest. I didn't get Mira money, and I turned all the gold and box and list in. I didn't get anything but I met a lot of nice P.C. and buffed them while I was looking for tax money. I will have to try it again, now I know how to do the quest.

Every time you ask Mira Sayer for her taxes, and she sobs, you will receive a faction hit. I didn't know what was going on when she started crying, so i asked her about the taxes several times. By the time I got back to qeynos, I had gone from indifferent to threatining. But the good news is that you can spare a character the faction hits (and the insult of Flynn) by swapping the droppable tax box and the list between characters. In the end you will actually gain faction with the merchants, because you get a boost when you turn in the box to offset the hits from collecting tax. If you do swap charcters, the second character will get the boost from turning in the box, but not the collection hits. Still, this quest is better simply to get the 10 slot box (and maybe freak some newbs by handing out people's tax money....)

The faction on this quest is very bad. It got my Ranger from amiable to indifferent! It wasn't such a big deal though, after killing some more gnolls and turning in some more fangs and diseased pelts, I got it back up. But all I got was a lapis lazuli stone. Feh.

# Aug 01 2001 at 3:47 AM Rating: Default
I am a lvl 25 Druid, I was doing this quest to kill time lol. I collected every one of the taxes and went to Flynn. I thought you had to kill him to get it, so I killed him like 10 times; ouch. Bad faction with corrupt guards, oh well, they still don't kill me in town. But, I was in wolf form and when I went out the door I was KoS to some guard Lt. It's almost worthless except for the box.

# Jul 27 2001 at 11:14 AM Rating: Default
Has anyone actually fought Flynn for his insulting attitude? I did this quest for fun at level 16 or 17 and he conned blue at the time. I was tempted to just take his head for his insults but I didn't want to deal with the the rest of the bar patrons or the bouncer if they decided to help him out.

Crow's is pretty close to the zone. Maybe I'll hit him and run one of these days just to see who follows.

I've done this quest and recieved a stupid copper ring with no stats and pretty much worthless.

My friend also did this quest later that day and she only received 6 silver.

Sure you take faction hits, but when you finish it you make up the faction (or so I think you would anyway)

And Flynn does shout out to the area, cause a couple of players were making fun of me when it happened ;)

I did this quest just now, almost by accident at first. I wandered into Qeynos, and decided to kill some time with a quest. I figured it had to be a newbie quest, since everything was so easy. After not being able to find Mira Sayer for quite a while, I came here to find out where she was (since I put so much time in it, thought I'd finish it up). I was happy to see that I'd be getting a ring out of the deal.

After turning the full chest in, I did NOT receive a ring (perhaps because my ring slots are already full?), but instead received a malachite (my pet gem, as I am a mage), and 12 silver.

The small faction hits mentioned in the description did happen to me with all 10 merchants. However, I did gain it all back in the end when I turned it in. :)

All in all, not terrible. :) But then again, not great, either, as it's a newbie quest. :)

a free 10slot container for newbies, and if you dont have any rings, you can get a +1cha ring which saves you a little bit of cash. faction hits are very small, and i dont understand why you are kos, unless your an ogre or did the quest a million times. no horrid affects, just remember you do take faction hits, so this isnt one of the quest you want to do repeatedly, a few time is fine, to make up the faction just slaughter some gnolls.
