So I made the earring for this "measure of the Dead" Then I got returned to the group back into Sathir tomb to be with the group. I didn't know it, but the quest reset the following steps: Bring the Purified mana to the central teleport Bring the purified mana to the yellow energy Bring the Purified mana to the blue energy The three steps reset in the quest because I returned to Sathir's tomb. I turned in the earring, it stated that the quest "measure of the dead" was complete. The earring was removed from my inventory. I now have no earring and the other people in the group that left the zone and returned after making the earring also have to redo the above steps as the quest everyone's quest reset. So it appears that if you have made the earring the quest resets if you return to Sathir's Tomb with a completed earring. Because it talked to Cresta with an incomplete quest, she took my earring.
