Depends.  It was a "quest" and if it were me, I wouldn't reim the xp.
It was a quest, and the morts should expect the quest to be "difficult"
(i.e., the realm of mobs would have been altered in some way).

I would however, chide the immorts for making the first two easy
quests, and create a disclaimer for "help quest" to avoid that 
sort of thing in the future.
