I've made both Rings of Apotheosis and my quest says to talk to Balthazar Dragonthorn, the Master Artisan. But each time (about 5 times now) I go there, above him is a grey question mark and he still says he's waiting for the rings. I've waited for the cooling time to be done to make sure it wasn't that. Is there something I'm doing wrong???
If you started the quest before the big Update, there is a bug that keeps him from recognizing that you have the two rings. Crafting another item sometimes resets the count, but some people have had to craft a third ring to get him to talk to them. But you can't have bought them, and you can't have them equipped. They have to be ready in your backpack for him to take. Also, some people have mentioned that they can't turn in crafting quests if their backpack is full.
There is another glitch that sometimes happens with this guy's tasks. Transmuting a reagent sometimes counts as making the item, but then of course you don't have the item in your backpack to turn in. So, even though it's telling you to talk to him, it won't count until you have the two items he requested. Confusing, I know, but nobody drops the items you need to craft. You could try buying them at the Bazaar -- good luck with that!
