Sold a quest item by mistake - what to do now?

HI - I'm doing 'searching the present' - a lvl 21 quest. You need to use a scrying orb that you get through the 'benign order of the third eye' campaign. I can't find the orb in my inventory/bank so I think I must have sold it to a merchant thinking it was a normal 'weapon' orb. Is there a way to get another one?

Thanks

    First a question - Did you put it on your consumable slot?

    1. Try going back to the vendor and see if he still have the sold item in the tab of stuff you sold him. If not...
    2. Try asking someone to share the quest that give the orb to you again - if it's shareable.
    3. Drop and retake the quest.....?
    4. File a report ticket
    5. Worst case, if that item can be banked in shared bank - create a new char - level it up to lvl X to get the quest and put it in the bank.. then delete the char :)
    6. If not, just delete the char and start over if it's not too much of an investment.

    I had this happen once as well... I accidentally sold the orb and was pretty much stuck at that point.

    As it was a new character I just deleted and re-created as there didn't seem to be any way to get another orb from Sybella.

    I am not sure why that orb isn't marked as no-sell, of all the things in the game that are flagged "no sell" and "no discard" you'd think a quest item that you can't get again would be one of those things. Apparently not!

    There was a point where people were posting them on the AH. Can you find it there? Check consumables and misc as I forget how it categorized.

    Nice catch. It's in Consumables - Potions & Supplies

    Thanks for this info... that is fantastic to know, though who sells the orb when you can get a nice 12-slot bag with it? ;)

    If you put the orb in the mail before going to turn the quest in and then pick it back up after, you still get the reward. There isn't any real advantage to doing so, but a few of my characters have them in belt slots as a toy, and to keep from having random potions, invoke crowns etc... slotting in automatically.

    Another mystery solved! This is why you have to stop every 2nd quest turn in ... you kept all the quest items from leveling!
    I only keep useful stuff like the Cape of Catastrophe or the Cloak of Lesser Etherealness - important items!

    As for the problem at hand by the OP, maybe someone can lend you an orb?

    Ok, so I've done the quest on one of my lowly alts. If you are still in need of the orb, i'll mail it over - with your @handle ofc ^^

    Somebody who already had a full set of bigger bags when they did the campaign
  • samaka#2511 samaka Member Posts: 568 Arc User
    I wish I had a full set of bigger bag at that level!

    But, yes, I suppose there are those why buy a set of larger bags for themselves... but then you'd think they wouldn't care about the paltry sum of AD from selling the orb! ;)

    Actually - the item remain in your inventory if you mail it or put in shared bank before you turn in the quest - so you can still complete the last part of the quest which gives the bag AND keep the item :)

    Thanks for the offer :smile: I already got a ticket completed by the GMs though and they gave me it back.

    That's good to hear! Glad it's resolved :smile:

    I know several people who keep that orb and slot it on their belt to use in Castle Never as a type of light spell to be able to see in the darkness areas.

    Well, well, I am lvl 15, I came back to Sybella with the completed orb, but before the searching the present quest (it is lvl 20 quest so I don't have the access to it yet) I talked to Sybella and puff the orb dissapeared, (No I didn't accidentally sold it) so I am wondering if she will give it back, or if it is lost for good... The Journal actually told me to turn in the orb to Sybella, Or something like that so I did.
  • samaka#2511 samaka Member Posts: 568 Arc User
    Yes, Sybella will take the orb from you and then when you get the next quest she will return it! :)

    Yes, she certainly did. Thank you for the assurance.

    In having the same problem, I cant seem to do anything to fix it. I dont pay for anything in the game so i only have 2 character slots and my other one is too high level to go back and do the quest...
