Not sure if it is for everyone, but as i followed the arrow to check this bug it took me directly to the taskmasters room, if anyone can confirm or deny that it has been fixed Anna StormCaster 00:57, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
Everyone is wondering where the Taskmaster is.
Well this quest has a bug. When you follow the Quest Helper Arrow, it leads you to the wrong area.
1. You have to defeat Kiwu.
2. Poison the food behind where you fought Kiwu on the table.
3. When you have to fight the Taskmaster, don't follow the arrow. Press "M" on your keyboard and that opens on the map. Find where it says Taskmaster and instead go there. There you will fight the Taskmaster.

I can not find the person to finish this quest can you please help me - question from an anonymous user 22.214.171.124 on 09:58, 2009 July 19
Is this quest buggy? I defeated Kiwu twice and poisoned the table several times, but the Taskmaster hasn't appeared. Is there something I missed?
I have forgotten the exact sequence, but after poisoning the food I believe you need to trudge back to the mander hiding out and making you do all this stuff for him. That'll end this quest and open the next. He'll say something like, "Great! Now go hurt that guy!" It's then that you go hurt the Taskmaster in his room. RCWizard 08:14, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
I have tried speaking to the mander that initiates the quest. He said the same thing as when he tells you to poison the food (which included attacking the taskmaster. It was like two goals in one. Poison the food and attack the taskmaster.) Then I went back and looked for the taskmaster. Nothing, unfortunately. Almost everytime I go I meet someone else looking for the taskmaster. Should I notify someone? If so, who? Thank you for your help RCWizard.
If you have the sequence right, then it's Kiwu followed by poison, followed by beat-up on that Krok (taskmaster). If the Taskmaster isn't where he should be, there is something odd. I've put a new map up if that'll help. Otherwise you'll need to contact support on the Wizard101 support page. RCWizard 07:14, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
How to work around the bug.
This quest is bugged. The Quest Pointer points to the wrong room. To find the Taskmaster use your Map. His room is correctly labeled there.
