      It's worth it, I guess. The vendor are not exactly awesome and you can't do the quest without joining the Fab 5 and... quests are fun, unique dialogues

      • completing this quest removes NPCs related to the Fab 5, probably not worth doing it, especially since a couple of them are half decent vendors. on my next playthrough im gonna not accept the quest and see if the NPCs stick around.
