Ahoy! I have freed all but the Long Night items from their captivity so that people can do some questing.
The whole practice of locking quest items up and not using them is rather counterproductive so I would hope people will leave them in circulation. Without them bobbing around the world, people really only have a few quests and slaying as a way to occupy their hands and improve their standing in the land.
