I’m trying to complete the “A Bite for Bowen” fishing quest. It says to give James Sandford 3 Whiting and “a pinch of basil”, and he will cook the Whiting Soup that I’ll need to give to Bowen. Problem is, I can’t turn the quest in... I found that I have 13 Whiting, and have bought 2 things of basil, but the quest icon (?) hasn’t popped up over James’ head. I can’t tell if I have to actually cook the soup myself or not... which wouldn’t make sense since James says that he would cook it. Even the quest in my log says that I’d have to give the ingredients to James before I can give the soup to Bowen.
Am I missing something, or is this actually a glitch? I noticed that this particular quest that requires me to gather items isn’t like the “normal” gathering quests that list what you need to gather.
