Have only found Gretta offering the text and muffin crate these days, but many merchants around the world will accept the full muffin crate, although they no longer offer the quest text. Can someone confirm if there are quest starters other than Gretta?

Merchants of Oggok +2
Clurg +1
Oggok Guards +1

Merchants don't like me enough for me to see what's stocked or not.

Get the box from Gretta in South Kaladim, combine muffins, then find Winda Lylil in East Freeport:

Winda Lylil says, 'Ah yes! This is exactly what I am looking for, dear. Let me put these on the shelf right away. Here is some coin for your trouble. Perhaps we can do business again sometime.' (6 gold)

Freeport Militia +2
Coalition of Tradefolk Underground +1
Knights of Truth -1
Priests of Marr -1

She despawns and immediately respawns with limited amounts of water flasks and meat pies. She already sells bread and muffins in unlimited amounts.

Confirmed, you can get the Muffin Crate from Gretta and give the full crate to Winda Lylil.
This quest is still alive.

Neither Karn nor Voleen respond with the text... but Gretta does in South Kaladim. She gives the same container used to combine the muffins. She also mentions the bread shipment, but the NPC for the bread loaves was long removed.

Giving the box of muffins to Voleen:

Voleen Tassen says, 'Oh my! Smell those muffins, fresh from the oven and ready to serve! They look delicious dear. Here is some money for your trouble.' (6 gold)

Merchants of Qeynos got better. (max, unknown number)
Circle of Unseen Hands got worse. -1
Antonius Bayle got better. +1
Coalition of Tradefolk got better. (max, unknown number, likely +1)
Guards of Qeynos got better. +1

Giving them to Karn:

Karn Tassen says, 'Hey, thanks kid! You are one top notch baker! Here's some coin for your trouble.' (7 gold)

Same faction hits. Karn despawns and respawns a moment later. The purpose was to restock the NPC with limited supply of muffins and loaves of bread.

Neither Karn nor Voleen respond to any sort of dialog whatsoever. Seems that this quest, and The Bread Shipment quest, were both removed at some point (likely after the Plague of the Karanas was cured).
Not in game

Since the Karana Plague was ended, this quest is no longer in game. Same with the bread quest from SK.
is this quest still active despite the Karana plague being c

Just curious. I dont remember but either a npc or a pc told me that the lack of bread was because of the Karana plague. And as the plague has been cured does this quest still work?

I am in need of Fruit to make my muffins. I am on the Vazaelle server and my character's name is Myrinia. Please send me a tell if you have some I can buy. I wish they would put in some ground spawns.
Multiple Zones
# Jul 18 2001 at 11:52 AM Rating: Default
This quest is available in multiple zones... And the faction changes you get depend on the zone.

In Erudin, you get this quest (and the quest to fetch bread) from Beth Breadmaker, near the docks. The faction hits are: Merchants of Erudin, Council of Erudin, and High Guard of Erudin all improve, none decrease.

All positive faction hits make this a good quest for faction, of course.
bread shipment
# Jun 17 2001 at 1:40 AM Rating: Default
Two questions...

Is there a vendor in FP through which this quest can be done?

and...

What happens if you choose the route of picking up the [shipment of bread]?

I'd really like to get started on baking, using bread to make sandwiches.

Thanks,

Just wanted to mention that I, a dark elf ench, received this box and the quest info from an ogre in Ogguk. I was just foolin around since I was down there for another quest.

Can't remember her name, but the ogre was female and nearbye Clurg, the guy involved in the stein of mogguk quest.

Also, completely different subject. I found an enchant CLAY spell in Neriak third gate with the enchant metal spells. Anybody know about this?

The Enchant Clay spell is for the new imbued pottery idols that were added in. They are (as last I heard) bugged in that they are not yet equippable in the Ranged slot, but that is what the spell is for. =)

If you're working on baking anyway...
# Jun 03 2001 at 10:52 AM Rating: Default
With the recent changes to the baked products (fish, gator & shark rolls are banquets--and last for a long time--and other baked items give stat gains), it's not the worst trade skill to work up. For foraging races/classes, it means that while you're working up your skills, you can get a little xp and faction easily (the fruit is a foraged item). Note that foraged eggs produce multiple doughs--so baking does tend to be simpler for those that can forage. Personally, I'm glad to see these sort of quests going in.

grettas baking supply's
# Jun 01 2001 at 12:23 PM Rating: Default
Dont know if anyone can help me out here but ill give it a go. After the patch i was walking through Butcherblock mountains when i cam e accroos this hugh bag on the path. It was right after a message came up that the zone was repoping. Well anyway i picked up the bag to see what it was and found it to be a crate that cannot be opened called grettas baking supplys. I believe this could be linked to this new situation in norrath if anyone has any information i would appreciate it.

Log of quest

To know these quests you may read The Antonican Times (sold near Qeynos bank)
You read :

=============
Food shortages cause merchants concern
=============
A poor harvest and damaged crops are leaving some merchants short of cretain baked goods. Karn Tassen, local merchant, had this to say about the food shortage.
"It is hard enough to scrape by and make enough money to pay your taxes in this town. Now with this blasted plague affecting everything, I'm starting to run out of stock. It's a mess I tell you."

A call has gone to independant bakers to assist our local merchants and those abroad in keeping their supplies properly stocked. Anyone interested in assisting the community in this time of need should inquire local members of the Merchants of Qeynos. Those traveling abroad are urged to contact the Coalition of Trade Folks.
=============

FIRST QUEST (FRESH MUFFINS)

You go at Voleen Bakery in South Qeynos
Karn Tassen have no more muffins in its inventory, so do Voleen Tassen

You say, 'Hail Karn Tassen'
Karn Tassen says 'Bah, I told Voleen it would happen and it finally did! Food is becoming so scarce that I'm starting to run out of stock. You wouldn't happen to [be a baker] yourself or maybe you [know] someone who bakes?

You say, 'I am a baker'
Karn Tassen says 'Well good! Maybe you can help me restock. If you are a baker you could help me out by restocking my [muffin supply]. Or if you don't mind a little travel, you can pick up a [shipment of bread] for me.

You say, 'what muffin supply ?'
Karn Tassen says 'Thanks, you're a pal. Take this crate and fill it with muffins, then seal it up and bring the Full Muffin Crate back to me. Don't go trying to pass off that store-bought stuff on me either, I need fresh baked muffins. The ones in the stores are already too old and will get moldy too fast, so I don't want those.

You bake 10 muffins (135 baking skill, need some pottery and smithing too) and you combine them in the crate.
You have fashioned the items together to create something new!
You give the crate back

Karn Tassen says 'Hey, thanks kid! You are one top notch baker! Here's some coin for your trouble.
Your faction standing with MerchantsofQeynos got better.
Your faction standing with CircleOfUnseenHands got worse.
Your faction standing with AntoniusBayle got better.
Your faction standing with CoalitionofTradefolk got better.
Your faction standing with GuardsofQeynos got better.
You gain experience!!
You receive 2 gold from Karn Tassen.

(1 blue bble exp at lvl 8)

Karn Tassen despawn and respawn 3 seconds later. Now he have muffins to sell.

You can do the same quest with Voleen Tassen, she just says different things

You say, 'Hail Voleen Tassen'
Voleen Tassen says 'Hi Durix . Times are tough these days. It looks like Karn's fears have come to pass. We are finding ourselves running short on baked goods lately. Would you be [willing to help] us out?

You say, 'I am willing to help'
Voleen Tassen says 'You'd help us? Oh, you are such a dear! Well, there are two ways you can help us and our little business. If you [can bake] you can make us some muffins so we don't run out. Otherwise, you [can travel] a little way for us and pick up some bread.

You say, 'I can bake'
Voleen Tassen says 'A free lance baker, well that is nice. Here. Take this crate and make some of your muffins. Bring the Full Muffin Crate back to me when you are done. I'll pay you the same as we pay our regular suppliers. Make sure you bake them fresh yourself, we only sell quality muffins here.
Muffins
# Jun 01 2001 at 1:31 AM Rating: Decent
For those of you thinking this route is the easy way, muffins are trivial at a skill of 135 and the recipe is clump of dough, fruit, and a muffin tin in an oven or spit. The clump of dough you make in a mixing bowl (cost of bowl is well over a plat), the fruit is a foraged item, and the muffin tin is made by a potter (trivial level of 122) or a smith (trivial somewhere between 92 and 115) but at least you don't use up the muffin tin with every muffin attempt.
Value of the quest
# Jun 12 2001 at 11:25 AM Rating: Decent
Having been working on faction with my lv15th Iskar monk for a while, I thought it would be good to use my main character (43rd Barb Shaman) to give him a hand.

Task 1 - get 135 skill at baking. Just a couple of hours combining bat wings with fish if that, and a useful supply of fish rolls is created.

Task 2 - Muffin tin - I was already a master smith, so pottery needed to be started. To be honest it took me more time to find out where to buy the necessary components than to skill up. Every attempt except 2 resulted in a skill point increase, and the ceramic linings are actually what you skill up with from 20. I decided to trivial the linings for good measure as I had the materials, and ended up with about 20 linings.
Time 1 hr

Task 3 - Make some tins - Had three combines in a row - Cake, Pie and Muffin - anyone who has skilled up to banded can make them easily.

Task 4 - Eggs. Looted Basilisk eggs is the choice as they yield 15 dough. I got 7 eggs from about 18 kills. Finding them was hard due to the number of druids hunting them for eggs in the zone at the time. 2 hrs

Task 5 - Make the dough - just a few clicks

Task 6 - Get fruit - auction it while doing other things. I actually offered 10pp a stack. I wasn't doing this for profit, but for faction.

Task 7 - make the muffins - something to do during med time for most, but I was on a mission and spent about 1 hr. I ended up with approx 24 stacks from memory.

Task 8 - get Iskar Monk into Voleens - found a friendly druid for wolf form and handed in my stcks of gnoll teeth at the same time.

Task 9 - Hand in the muffins. I was actually doing this for some time. The guards didn't seem a problem. The only time I ended up dead was when attacked by a NPC enchanter.
So far I have only handed in just over half of my muffins.
I was "threateningly" (just) after the gnoll teeth and 600+ gnoll/bandit kills. After the muffins I was "dubious" to all the guards in North Qeynos and the shopkeepers.

I still have some work to do with the monk guild, but I am very pleased with the 7 hrs I invested in this.
I have mastered 1 trade skill (baking 135), have learnt the fundementals of another (pottery 36), and I have got my monk a significant chunk of the way to good faction in one major city (Qeynos). If it turns out that there really is an alternative quest in each of the major cities, in many ways this is a very good quest.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 01 2001 at 6:16 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) If what you say is true, then this is a reallllly crappy quest. All that work for some coin and faction? What a rip.
RE: Muffins
# Jun 01 2001 at 10:11 AM Rating: Default
Yeah, for baking some muffins you should get some super armor or 2HB proc'ing weapon ...

Hmm wait, if I don't think the quest is useful, hmm, then maybe I don't have to do it.
RE: Muffins
# Jun 01 2001 at 10:33 PM Rating: Default
Where did I comment on the reward? Where did I say this quest was good or bad? Get a clue, some posts are simply informative. In case people thought this was a Qeynos version of Muffins for Pandos (after all it is a faction quest rather than a loot quest), I presented exactly what is involved. Whether or not to do the quest I (unlike you) made no suggestion about and left it entirely to the reader. Quit evercamping, your mind has become too numb.
Not a cheap way ...
# May 31 2001 at 7:36 PM Rating: Decent
Merchant bought muffins will NOT work for this quest - putting 10 merchant-bought muffins in the box gives a "You cannot combine these items in this container type". So you need to bake them yourself or buy them from a PC baker.
Faction?

What are the faction changes, this'd be a cheap way to raise faction
