If you already have 7 merc slots (via station cash etc), does this quest give you an 8th?

The first 6 combines are confirmed as having trivial levels of 335.
Mercenary Signet Ring, jewelry making, has a trivial of 15.
Which is a good thing considering the material(s).

No xp reward and i think it's the same thing that the market place "Mercenary Slot". The quest just give you one more slot of the number max of total slots.

Just did the final JC combine for the signet ring, it seems the trival has been further lowered to 15.
You should have a very hard time failing it now.

i just got this quest finished. 05/22/12
only glitch i saw was you have to zone or log to get the new merc slot to show up after you complete the quest, if you already have bought a merc slot witch Station cash

all items you need for this are tradeable and lore

you can do this quest 4 times aperently as it gives me a 1/4 on the aa. and lets me do the quest again. i will try it and see if it works.

I don't know if there is a minimum level for Mercenary Captain Cecile to talk to you. However, even if you buy all the dropped components or farm them on a higher level toon, the tradeskill requirement means that you cannot do this quest unless you are (or at least have been) level 51 and have purchased all 6 ranks of New Tanaan Craft Mastery AA.
