Can you detail the exact process you went through for this quest? What did you do after you accepted it?
Thanks for letting us know. I’ve put it on the Known Issues list for the time being and have brought it up with the proper team.
One workaround you can try if it’s hampering your progress is to go and speak to the Constable in either Everfall/First Light or Monarch’s Bluffs instead, that actually should advance the quest in your starting zone. Be warned that it is a long run, but that would advance the quest.
