Please help me, i have searched this forum and other foruns to find a way for me to finish this quest.

I know what to do but i cannot activate any of the buttons from the clockwork owlbear.

I'm standing near elder ash owlbears ( the big ones) and i activate the clockwork owlbear but on my hotbar, the 5 hotkeys appear all grey, and i cannot finish the quest and i haven't be able to get a single egg.

Any help ??

Geez, it's been YEARS since I did that quest. Are you getting any messages in your chat window? You activate the clockwork, then run up to the female and target her. Then your abilities should be active. http://eq2.zam.com/db/quest.html?eq2quest=c732b855137e95c76a7529821525c1f7

But do you have her targeted? If you don't you can't use the abilities.

Sorry for the late reply . I haven't got the time to play anything for some days ( lots of work)

Anyway ...

I have them target , i even tried to attack them but in my combat chat what i get only is " cannot see target" and all elder ash owlbears "names" are in red and my options ( 1 through 5 ) are grey'd out.

Any thoughts ???

If you're targeting them you'll still have to get in range.

arghhhh , i'm really stupid ( or is this quest that is broken ...)

These are my steps :
keep targeting those elder ash owlbears ( yes , they are the big ones )
The label above elder ash owlbear is in red ( don't know if it help in any way)
i activate the clockwork owlbear
i target one of the elder ash owlbear
none of the clockwork owlbear functions are active ( from 1 to 5 )
i keep getting in combat chat the message "can't see target"
never able to finish this **** quest

( and about getting in range, does walking all over the elder ash owlbear count as close ???)

about to give up on it

i've done ( for sure ) everything you've told me to do but still nothing !!!!

i'ved tried in several locations and currently i'm in -972.10,52.27,-154.87 but still no go ....

like i said in the begining of this post " I'm really stupid!!!"

I'd suggest submitting a bug report and maybe even a petition to see if it's a known issue. Not sure if a GM can help but you really sound like you've tried everything. =\

Not sure if you're still interested in finishing this quest at this point, but I think I have the answer. The 'elder ash owlbears' are not the right ones. The correct mobs are just called 'ash owlbears'. You just have to find the ones that are larger than the others - those are the females.
Hope this helps. :)
