I completed all of the main quests of Marleybone, and after I got out of Big Ben, I talked to Sherlock Bones and Clancy. After they were done, I saw on the screen that I had gotten the Honorary Detective badge. I went to the badges part of my book thing to use it as my title, but it wasn't there! Anyone have a similar problem or know how to fix it?

Also, I tried going back to talk to them but it didn't work .

I'm sorry you couldn't find it. :( Try searching in your badge book again -- it has some 30+ pages in it, you might have missed it. If I remember correctly, it's towards the bottom of one of the later pages, and it has a picture of Sherlock Bones...I think... Good luck finding it! :)

I think that you may have your badges confused.

This link shows all of the Basic Badges, along with their requirements:

http://www.wizard101central.com/wiki/Basic:Badges

If you scroll down to Page 4 on that link, you will find the Honorary Detective, which is given when you complete all of Officer McRuff's quests.

And then on Page 5, you will find the Honorary Engineer, which is given when you defeat Meowiarty.

Does this help?

Hi again. After looking around again on the fansite, I think I might have found where your confusion came from. I just posted this message on the wizard101central.com forum:

"The Last Meow" quest dialogue incorrect?

I'm not sure which one of these is correct. In the quest, The Last Meow, where you defeat Meowiarty in Big Ben, at the end Mayor Pimsbury tells you "I hereby dub you Honorary Detective". Here is the dialogue from that quest:

http://www.wizard101central.com/wiki...Quest_Dialogue

But the list of Basic Badges shows "Honorary Engineer" at the end of that quest.

Honorary Detective comes from Officer McRuff's quests. This link shows the Wiki list of badges (see pages 4 and 5): http://www.wizard101central.com/wiki/Basic:Badges

It looks like the "dialogue" in The Last Meow might be wrong.

I am pretty sure they are given by the mime in jail.

You've gotten confused. After completing the Last Meow you get the "Honorary Engineer" badge, not the Honorary Detective Badge. You get the badge by Completing All Quests for Officer McRuff.
He won't give quests until you complete Marcel Meow guy in Scotland Yard. Marcel is the cat mime.
