After you have completed all of the previous steps, head back to Fezbin Fizzles. The previous quest told you:

You have succeeded in retrieving all the information the Wayfarers Brotherhood was seeking. Return to Fezbin and tell him you have completed your task so that he can give you your final reward.

You say, 'I have completed my task.'

Fezbin Fizzles says 'So I have been told, ______. Your help will long be remembered by the brotherhood. Since you first came to me, the stone should have grown in power and now I will give you the item that will unlock the stone's full potential. Please combine this with your stone after you have combined all of the other items given to you by the lead scouts and you will possess an item of immense power and a symbol of your fighting spirit. Once again, the brotherhood thanks you. I must bid you good day as I recently received some [interesting information].'

Flag: You have done quite well and your exploits will forever be talked about by the members of the Wayfarers Brotherhood, but don't you dare relax as there's still many more adventures and hidden treasures out there waiting for a hero like you.

You receive A Jagged Blood Shard.

You say, 'What interesting information?'

Fezbin Fizzles says 'Where are my manners? I should have known someone as adventurous as you would be interested in this. One of our researching experts by the name of Beanalle has recently discovered some very intriguing information about the temples beyond Yxtta and Kod'Taz.'

Combine A Jagged Blood Shard with A Smokey Green Gemstone and Vaifan's Clockwork Gemcutter Tools in Vaifan's Experimental Sealer to craft an archetype-specific Adventurer's Stone.

The gem resonates with power as the shards placed within glow unlocking some of the stone's power. You were successful in assembling most of the stone but there are four slots left to fill, where could those four pieces be?

tl;dr Check if you've done the Qinimi flag

Hey guys,

15 years late to the party. I've been doing this quest on Live and recently ran into the problem where Fezbin won't respond and will tell you that you need to help others. I've completed Quests 1-9 and have the reward, so something was wrong.

According to dev post on there was an issue with the Qinimi flag. I went to hail Taminoa and sure enough he acted like I hadn't seen Qinimi before, but told me all of my other cities were complete.

I started to try Quest#1 again but nobody was liking my hails. On a whim I decided to try the Stone of Entry trial again, as I still had the key. When I completed the trial, I gave the Stone to the dude we just saved and he said I don't need this, but he DID give me the Writ of the Magi. I took this back to Taminoa and he accepted it. I took the new writ back to the Councilman in Qinimi and I was able to do the mini-raid event again. I took the bloody robes back to Taminoa and he accepted it and gave me the reward again (which I had already received).

I then went up to hail Fezbin and he initially said I still had work to do, but then i Said 'I have completed my task.' and then I got the quest reward for #10! So something was bugged when I did it the first time around.
How do you know to say this?

After finishing BiC 9 with the hand-in to L`diava a yellow text follows "You have succeeded in retrieving all the information the Wayfarers Brotherhood was seeking. Return to Fezbin and tell him you have completed your task so that he can give you your final reward." If you hail Fezbin then say "I have completed my task" he will acknowledge it with the shard and you can proceed from there.
this is what you need to say to him

I am having the same trouble.. completed step 9, did combine, spoke with Fezbin and get the reply ' You have not finished helping the others. Please return to me when you have done so'. Tried multiple variations to the 'I have completed my task.' line to no avail. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for the help

If you check the petition knowledgebase, and search on "breakdown in communications" (with the quotations).. the first entry you get is *Everquest - Top Customer Service Issues*. Look at that and scroll down -- you will see that they are aware that Fezbin is broken and hope that it causes us no inconvenience.

In other words, they will fix it when they get around to it.

Ok, so I've completed the 9th stage and formed the 'A Smokey Green Gemstone'. Now when I talk to fezbin Fizzles I'm having trouble getting him to acknowledge this so he will give me the 10th fragment so I can move on. I've tried the " I have completed my task" and " I have completed your task" lines as stated further in the posts here but its not working he keeps spouting " You have not finished helping the others. Please return to me when you have done so." Am I missing something? Is he bugged? Anyone know how to get past this so I can finish my aug?

when you finish the 9th part, you get an emote from l`diava that says "You have succeeded in retrieving all the information the Wayfarers Brotherhood was seeking. Return to Fezbin and tell him you have completed your task so that he can give you your final reward."

Put at the top of this write up, you tell Fezbin Fizzles "I have completed my task"
then you get the next message

I have the same problem and that phrase doesn't help and any other phrase I try. Is it better to wait on combining the shard from L'diava before hailing Fezbin??
