just tested it, u dont need attunement to go in…

This is kind of a big deal for that trinket to tank in TK. Sadly this might not be fixed for a while. Blizzard needs a high sense of urgency on this!

Same thing is happening on Windseeker as well. The NPC isn’t there to turn it in for: The New Directive.

Tobais the Filth Gorger for the quest: Of Thistleheads and eggs… is nowhere to be found either

I can’t find Tobias the Filth Gorger either he is not in Lower City where he shold be.

This is also an issue on Herod … Archmage Cedric is no where to be found…

Ditto on Westfall. No Cedric at 16, 55 by Dalaran.

Unable to turn in quest on old blanchy…

Same problem still on BSB.

Still not there on Westfall as of 9/22 @920am

this is what GM replied to me :)) they never do any real investigate

The response given is common as noted in the actual response. In this case it appears to be a common cause a GM probably wouldn’t be able to help with. Until development discovers what causes this bug and the possible fixes, a ticket probably will not be necessary as GM staff generally do not fix bugs. GM staff do not generally bypass quest mechanics simply because it can cause other issues down the line. Hopefully with this bug report there is enough information for quality assurance to discover the cause, allowing development to fix this in short order. If you read the last sentence you’ll note where it says to reopen the ticket if you have a need for additional help.
