I'm on the same quest. "The Knight's Steed". I've had it for a while, used Turtles in the last week - no golden horseshoe. So I probably will be charging the Midas Artifact to get them as well.
I did not yet trade with the Elder Gypsy, as I hope the horseshoes will be the "get the green marker and then you can use them" - kind of questpart. That way I could trade them before I get the Steed and not loose both.
Anyone experience with handling that one this way?
I do not have other objects in this quest either
- though I remember that I had to search the hallway several times for the Knight there in order to get the steeds quest.
@Jazzy Did you quit MM completely? Or perhaps search Magdas room? Perhaps there is another quest you have to clear before that one? (tough I wouldn't know wich one that could be, as mine just popped up after finishing the one before, I think...)
