Greetings, I am wondering if you must complete the quest in watertown to collect the 40 pearls from the mermaids to be able to finish the game. I am just not willing to waste the amount of time it would take to keep diving under water to get all 40 of them, while dodging mermaids. 5 or 10 would have been a reasonable amount. 40 is just ludicrous. Cheers!!
