Inscribed Serpent Staff
This blatant disregard for a very serious error needs to be addressed, or they will be losing my business.
As powerful it is, at some point you know you will outgrow this staff. When that time comes, one of the Inkmasters in the Arboretum would most likely be interested in taking it from you.
Next time read the quest text because it says right in there that they'll take it from you.
This just happened to me now, and in my excitement after 20 days of waiting to get this thing, I did indeed do a skim read on the quest.
It actually looks like you can't equip the item because of the quest symbol on it. It also seemed to me that the quest item HAD to be turned in to enable or empower the staff, with a great reward of getting half of the materials back.
Naturally its my own fault for 'not reading the quest' as some have replied, but it was an exciting moment for me, which turned into the biggest disappointment I've ever had in this game.
What I kick myself mostly for, is I am indeed one of those people that will read every quest, but I've had this game for many years, and have done most of these quests repeatedly on numerous alts. If it wasn't such an exciting moment of "FINALLY ITS DONE", I wouldn't of been in such a rush.
