What's the point of having 2 identical questmobs for a quest

This crap only rewards people who have been
given the whole quest before hand so they
can get all the items needed before hand.

If you are working your way thru the quest it is complete
!@#$.

I speak of necro annihilate undead.

As the first person to do that quest I redid steps numerous times (jade skull 3 times, oh joy) before I figured out the trick.

There is a way to tell the difference though, all you have to do is ask.

So are you saying the point of have 2 paths
one of which is presumably a false path is
for the fun of figuring out that you wasted
rare items?

There were a few complaints when the quest first went in about this as well.
I believe the answer was that it was done that way to make you read the quest and pay attention to what you were doing.
Could be wrong, however.

'I believe the answer was that it was done that way to make you read the quest and pay attention to what you were doing.'

There is nothing you are told, prior to the nonsense happening
that would give you an inkling that the mob in question was
anything but 'befuddled', to say nothing of it actually being
two mobs.

Both paths lead to the spell but if your not attentive to their names you will redo steps. There is a very simple way to avoid the confusion if you just talk to the mob. You are right though, its pretty inevitable to mess a step up unless your aware of the different names and they are similar enough that its easy to miss the clues.

At least they are in the same spot unlike the cleric version.
