Evendim update altered quests pre-requisites?

I am attempting to get my 30th level Burglar through this quest in order to acquire the Strange Flowers (+stealth item). Anyway, their are no supposed pre-requisite quests. You just talk to Nibs Chubb and begin the chain as indicated currently in this wiki. However, this is not working. I've obtained and completed the Oatmeal quest from Hana in Ost Guruth by speaking to Nod Gardener. He directed me to Northcotton Farms. That's it. Nothing more. He has not directed me to Nibs Chubb. Trying to talk to Nibs Chubb directly fails to initiate the quest. So I can only assume that something in this quest has been altered. Either completing Northcotton is a mandatory pre-req, or this quest chain is broken. Any suggestions? (And yes, I have access to the quests in this zone.) DoIHaveTo 09:35, 15 May 2011 (EDT)

I've done this quest 4 years ago, but lot has been changed since then. With the last update they revamped Evendim including the quests in Oatbarton (they added Northcotton). Yesterday I've completed all new quests in Northcotton which I had not seen before the update (preparing the festival in Northcotton). After I've had completed the last quest in the chain, the NPC directed me to Oatbarton.... So maybe this is the change. Try and speak to Albin Northcotton (at [22.1S, 68.8W]) first, complete those quests, and try to start this one!! Let us know, if this is the case we can update the wiki!! --Tiberivs 10:40, 15 May 2011 (EDT)
Apparently some portion of Northcotton Farms is mandatory. I spoke to Albin Northcotton and accepted the metaquest he offers. Then I spoke to Milo Longfurrow and accepted Gathering up the Equipment (objectives not completed) and Lights for the Market (completed objectives, but not turned in). While pursuing these quests, I completed and turned in Gathering up the Sheep and accepted Gathering the Chickens (objectives never started) and returned to Nod Gardener at this point - who had nothing for me. However, I went directly to Nibs Chubb who finally offered me this quest. I'm not sure whether Turbine has attempted to insert Northcotton into a larger farming metaquest chain through out Oatbarton or if this is an error. So, while this might be in error, their is currently an unknown pre-requisite to starting this quest. DoIHaveTo 21:43, 15 May 2011 (EDT)
Thanks for reporting back! Added a note to the Walkthrough and Notes section - feel free to update it (anyone) if you find out more details. Sethladan 21:52, 15 May 2011 (EDT)
Once I accepted the Northcotton Farmer's Market quest from Albin Northcotton the Farmers Bane quest became available. Sarann (talk) 12:23, 24 September 2011 (EDT)
