DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

This comes after doing the Seek the Moonstone Quest.

1. Outside Mag Mell there is a little lurikeen Tracker. Target him and say [Moonstone] and he will direct you to Merle, talking about a Creeper who stole a crown.

2. Horse to Howth. Behind Howth and up the hill is a hut. Merle the Old is always up. Target him and say [Creeper]. Now an NPC named Tracker wanders the area near Merle. Some people say you should wait for him and target him then say "Moonstone" but if you have done so with the Tracker outside Mag Mell, you can skip this.

3. From Ardagh, cross the lake to the Siabra Island with two houses and an upside down boat. Creeper is hiding at the boat (Lough Derg, Loc 42 58). Talk to him and get a crown for Maeve. (Creeper gave 5 silver. He says something like, “Here take this. It keeps jingling in my pockets and making noise.”)

Take the crown to Maeve. Now she will talk to you. This ends the Merle's Informant quest and enables you to continue the "Seek the Moonstone" quest, but if you are not lvl 20, Maeve will tell you you are not strong enough.

Anyone have a /loc on Maeve?

A /loc of Maeve the Crone would be nice. Between Ardee and the mudman spot. Where the heck is that? North or south of Ardee?

R u sure that crone dont speak to u if dont wear it?
Did you remember

If you came back after getting a few levels to get Maeve to talk to you and she didn't. Were you still wearing the signet ring? That seems to be an important point. When you try to talk to the NPC, they check to see if you're actually wearing the ring.
past max lvl?
# Dec 11 2001 at 3:17 PM Rating: Default
most quests have a minimum level and max. You might have past the max lvl that can complete.
Check some of other sites with quest info, they may have a max lvl to complete the quest.

I turned in the crown to the Crone at lvl 17. She told me I was too young of lvl , plz come back later when higher. Well now lvl 33 I come back and The Crone wont speak to me. Now what should I do?
I even tried to go through Merle's Informant quest over again, thinking it had forgotten I had already turned the crown in, but they would not respond to me.
I feel like I am stuck or bugged. Please help me =)

Where is Maeve tho?
Also works with Merle the Old

I did this quest by talking to the Tracker near the Spraggon Den, Northwest of Howth. She walks around in the hills there and up to the camp where Merle the Old hangs out.

If you talk to her and say 'moonstone' you can then talk to Merle about the Creeper.
