Quest Dialog:
Speak with Jarnam at loc=25358,23369,7988 dir=166 City of Camelot.

Jarnam says, "Oh I can't sleep anymore, it's horrible. It seems like everyone here has the same problem. We are [up all hours] of the night and day. What else can we do?"

Jarnam says, "It seems every one of our beds is infested with nasty bed bugs. You can't see them but they are there nonetheless. I have [an idea] though. Perhaps you can help me?"

"If we could find someone here that knows magic, we could whip up an enlarging spell. Then we could cast it on my bed, as [a test] of course."

Jarnam says, "If it works, the bed bugs would get big enough that we could squash them like the bugs they are. I'm so tired though from lack of sleep, I'd gladly pay you if you could find me a potion maker, get a potion, and squash my bugs. Then I could finally get a good night's sleep!"

Will you help enlarge the bed bugs and squash them? [Level 30]
You have been given the Bed Bugs quest.

Jarnam says, "That's great! Try seeing Healer Luperth. He keeps vigil on the upper floor of the bar near the main fountain. You know, the one where the guy reads poetry."
Seek out the healer Luperth. He is usually holding vigil on the upper floor of the bar near the fountain.
( Luperth is upstairs in the "Pendragon Bar" nearest the West Gate, loc=30911,16933,8464 dir=259 City of Camelot.)

Luperth says, "Jarnam wants to make an enlarging potion? I guess that would work. I personally can't make a potion that would do that, but I could point you in the right direction. Go see Parnel in the Academia Magus. The little I do know on the subject suggests you will need a certain type of vial. I have some extra, so take one with you. "

You receive the Vial for Enlarging Potion from Luperth!

[Step #2] Seek out Parnel in the Acedemia Magus. He can be found pouring over tomes in the upper floors of one of the wings.
( Parnel is upstairs in the left wing building off of/facing 'Academia Magus'), loc=26491,21582,8203 dir=272 City of Camelot.)

Parnel says, "Luperth said I could help? Once, I might have been able to. I'm terribly out of practice though. I would suggest seeking out Martha to make it for you, I know he still dabbles in magic on occasion. Take these ingredients and the vial Luperth gave you and I'm sure Martha can help you. He can be found across from the stable nearest the Guild of Shadows."

You receive the Ingredients for Enlarging Potion from Parnel!

[Step #3] Seek out Martha in his house east across from the stable closest to the Guild of Shadows.
( Martha is at loc=23917,19751,8012 dir=306 City of Camelot.)

Martha says, "Yes, I can help you. It looks like Parnel and Luperth steered you right. Let me see the vial that Luperth gave you."

[Step #3] Give Martha the potion vial that Luperth gave you.

Martha says, "Yes, that will do nicely. It has the perfect concavity to serve our purpose. Now hand me the ingredients that Parnel gave you."

[Step #3] Give Martha the potion ingredients that Parnel gave you.

Martha says, "Yes, just the right stuff. It's a shame Parnel gave up the magic. Give me a moment to make the potion."

Martha says, "Okay, that should do it. Take this to Jarnam. It should do the trick."

You receive the Enlarging Potion from Martha!

[Step #4] Take the enlarging potion you received to Jarnam and give it to him to examine.

Jarnam says, "Oh you have returned! Did you get it? Let me see it!"

Jarnam says, "Oh joy. I'm so happy! I'd examine it more, but I'm so tired you know. Let's try it right away! Take this sample amount and sprinkle it on the bed and kill any nasty bugs that appear."

You receive the Enlarging Potion from Jarnam!

[Step #5] Take the potion into the house and use it near the beds. Wait to see what happens.
(Go upstairs to loc=25366,23569,8211 dir=52 City of Camelot, there you will get a pop-up box telling you "You should be close enough to /use the potion now.)

[Step #6] It look like it worked! Now kill all the bed bugs for Jarnam. If you fail to kill them all, go back to Jarnam and tell him so.

The bed bugs are all dead!

[Step #7] Now that you have solved his bed bug problem, talk to Jarnam again.

Jarnam says, "It worked! I don't know how I can properly thank you. Take this small token as gratitude."

You are awarded 66 silver and some copper!
You are awarded 640,000,000 experience!
You have completed the Bed Bugs quest!

Jarnam says, "Thank you again for your help! I can now [use] my own bed again."

Jarnam says, "Why am I not using it now? Well, much as it pains me to say it, I think I hit that point where you have been up too long and can't get to sleep. Ironic, no?"

I had the same problem with my cleric. I disbanded and relogged and it worked fine. Now, I'm not sure what made the difference... disbanding, relogging, or I did it five times. Hope that helps.

This quest went smoothly for my necromancer but my cleric had a rough time at it. Meaning she couldn't get the quest to work even though she killed all the bugs as required.

Seemed the quest got stuck right after pouring the tonic around the bed.
