    Make sure you talk to Morgyn BEFORE you refine the 10 gems. I stupidly made all 10 refined gems before I talked to her, and the quest didn't update...so I had to make 10 more. Vendors won't buy them back so it was a loss of about 1000pp.
    One mercenary fits all!

    Confirmed.
    The nearest "an unemployed mercenary" I could find that works, is right down behind the tree trunk between the small bank (where you are) and the entrance to the GL.

    The post is wrong. The Freeport mercenaries are actually in East Freeport. The ones in west Freeport wont give task update.
