      For those who came here to know when to return to the merchant to finish the quest, you just need to exit the city and go back. You’re welcome.

        I feel like most of these wiki sites just copy and paste crap. How long do we wait to finish the quest? It's literally the only thing I've tried to look up about this quest.
