This quest [31116] is called 'Last Minute Yule Shopping',
for Adventurers levels 181 to 241.
This is a SEASONAL quest. It is available for a limited time.
Lord Vendredi is the master in charge of this quest.
The Yule holiday is upon us.  Like every year, I've been too busy planning
the various Yule parties, spending time with my family and making sure the
city is ready for the coming winter to finish my shopping.  I only need a
few items, and would be very grateful if you could search the surrounding
land for these objects my friends and family have asked of me this year.  Of
course I'll pay for all of them and give you a little bit of spending money
for your trouble.  
Upon successful completion of this quest you can receive:
*Up to 50 quest points, 5 practice points, 0 archon points,
0 build points, 0 piety, and 50,000 gold pieces.
You have 149 Alyrian minutes remaining to complete this quest.
Last Minute Yule Shopping consists of:
Phase 1: *Recover a Sigil mace.
Phase 2: *Recover a crimson cloak.
Phase 3: *Recover a bottle of Silverthorn Ale.
Phase 4: *Recover a honey cake.
Phase 5: *Recover an amethyst ring.
Phase 6: Recover a school book.
Phase 7: Recover a sordiculum whirlbat.
Phase 8: *Recover a wicked halberd.
Phase 9: *Recover the Sacred Shrub.
Phase 10: *Recover a green lion tabard.
Phase 11: *Recover a copper figurine of the king.
Phase 12: Recover a chocolate cookie.


Phase 12 really is excessive. The copper figurine costs 12k+, the token to get into Vesuvius is another 10k. You have to run through two separate CPK rooms that are easy to get jumped in. Then you have to wait for Mordimus to pop if he doesn't have the cookie on the first kill. The rewards are far too low for the amount of effort required on this quest.

At a minimum have phase 12 be something like a batch of chocolate chip cookies or some other cookie obtainable in one of the towns of Sigil/Dio/Vos.

I've found all of this season's seasonal quests to have far too little of rewards for the time/effort for me to bother completing any of them. Perhaps I just keep getting the worst ones on repeat. But a 5 prac quest at archon? Sorry, but I turn back in almost all 5 prac quests.

Yeah, this one is an especially obnoxious offender, with having a shortish time limit (Roughly one hour) and almost all items requiring mobs to pop with the items required for such a craptacular reward. Having to dip into CPK for a time as well doesn't help it any either.
