In the middle of the Crowned Prince storyline for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, you’ll need to finish a quest called No Friend of Mine. A greedy NPC named Famos has made off with the tools that Mikanikos normally uses, and you’ll need to bring them back to their owner.
Famos isn’t too far away. Before you accept the quest, make sure that there aren’t any current active World Quests in the surrounding area. No Friend of Mine is prone to bugging out during phasing. If you go into the area and end up accepting a World Quest, you’ll need to finish it, log out, then log back in to ensure you can finish No Friend of Mine without any issues.
Also, there might be an issue that causes the quest objective to not appear when necessary. If you accept the quest and don’t see any markers, drop the quest, and accept it a second time (it might take a minute for Mikanikos to reappear). This will prevent you from doing double the amount of necessary work.
Head northeast to the marker on your map, and you’ll find Famos at 52.9, 15.3. The fallen apprentice doesn’t have any special attacks to worry about, so you can easily dispose of her, return the tools, and continue the Crowned Prince storyline quests.
