Cracking my brain...

I mean racking my brain on this. I was minding my own business, playing a nice healing song when Cracktusk came up to say hello.

Killed him, and took his tusk.

And now I find out it is a useless item? Gave Cracktusk an extra kick for that on.

LOL just a thought...if the tusk is cracked maybe put some glue or something in it and hit combine to get a pristine tusk or something....maybe it'll be a weapon or something :-)

It's amazing how many old quests have never been solved or haven't been reported as solved.

Are they truly broken quests? If so,why the heck doesn't SOE fix or delete them? Too much work? Considering how much money they make and how much they keep adding new material,this excuse is just stupid.

As I've stated many times,if SOE cared about their customers they would fix what's broken FIRST,then create new content. But all they care about is getting new customers(mainly kids who weren't old enough to play the last time an expansion came out LOL) Oh well.....time to get back to the game and concentrate on things that AREN'T broken.....

This one has bugged me for a long time, the Gigantic Cracked Tusk from cracktusk in south karana. I've had it drop on almost every toon I've ever had and still after all these years no one knows what it's for or what goes in it. I'd pay good cash just to know hehehe, used to keep me up at night

I can't find a quest that requires this item. /shrug.

What poorly worded question should have asked what combines can be made in the container instead what npc's take this item for a quest. Of course this item wasn't used in a quest but whatever item it creates might be used for a quest.
Cracktusk down..

I have taken Cracktusk this morning and confirmed that his Giant Cracked Tusk:
1. is a 2-slot container
2. will accept Tiny items only
3. is an inventory item only
4. does not combine two Plains Pebbles

If anyone else has experimented with this container, please post failed combine pairs.. may save us some time.

I had this drop for my level 25 Ogre Warrior last week. Cracktusk was on the hill near the bridge at the north of the zone. Large aggro radius & blue to level 25.
He dropped the box (tusk) and 2 other tusk items, i only looted the box. i wish id looted the other stuff on him now, to try for the combine.
Please note though i did try combining 2 unstacked ivorys..didnt work.

I started playing EQ in late spring, 1999, and I put in thousands of hours in SK over the years. I finally saw Cracktusk for the first time this past weekend. (I still have never seen some of the named mobs in SK.) Anyway, he dropped the Gigantic Cracked Tusk, and I was hoping that after this much time, someone would have cracked (pun intended) the mystery of what this container is for. No such luck, I guess.

If the finger slot tusks aren't lore, perhaps aquiring 2 of them and combining them in the container, will creat something?
I wonder?

I wonder if you could combine the Gnawfang pelt and tooth in this container. Both items noone knows what they are used for. Gnawfang also spawns in SK. Just a thought.

Notice that this item has a combine button and it only holds items that are small, and smaller. I've searched a bit and i couldnt find anything on info related to these tuskes. So there must be something special you combine in this. But what could it be?
Some ideas:
-Does anyone know of any combineable quest items that seemed pointless as a reward?
-Has anyone heard anything about something similar of this?
-has anyone tried combining foraged items in this?

This has been around since the beginning of the game and I think no one or only a very select few know what it is used for. Yes he does drop a finger slot tusk now and then too, but he also drops this, I can confirm this as of yesterday.

Hehe came here praying for knowledge about this item, relieved and also disapointed to see everyone is as clueless as me. Saw Cracktusk for the first time ever in South Karana last night, he attacked me and when i killed him he dropped this. Have to say though the weight on the one I looted was 1 stone. Any one gets a clue on this one let me know.

I found one and have not been able to figure out what it is used for. Please if anyone knows if it is for a quest(assumably by the combine button) please let me know before i get rid of this heavy useless(unless for a quest) item.
Interesting Change

I just got one. Appears to have changed.
No slots and fits in finger slot. ( Thing about a 10 weight gigantic tusk on finger.


Nothing about magic etc...

Yes, I also acquired one of these, and I have no idea what on earth it could be for. However, is there such as thing as Glue ? Perhaps we need to "repair" it...

* Found on Cracktusk (http://eqbeastiary.allakhazam.com/search.shtml?id=3678 ), a pretty rare spawn
* Tusk weighs 10 stones, as noted
* Container, 2 slots, with Combine buttonn, as shown
* Only accepts TINY items (I tried sticking a Bone Chip in, didn't work)

Tiny items, hm?

Has anyone tried putting some rocks in it? I see a post about ivory, which would make sense, but what about other jewels? A plains pebble, perhaps? A jeweled elephant tusk would be an interesting item...
