Add me to the list I have tried it five times now and still can't get it. It is on the pedastal but can't use it and I'm not the only one all my friends that come with on this quest are havng the same problem and its getting annoying can you fix it soon as I want to finish ready for dragonsphere.
You guys seem like you need some help, I have a solution.
There is a book in Marleybone that seems to substitute the Crimson book. In the warehouse where Baxter was kidnapped, the book is in there, it says it's a Marleybone book, but it gave me the "Goal Completed: Use The New Beginning" thing, then I turned in the quest and got my experience points.
