The orc shovel is indeed in the orc tent; the problem was finding the orcs.

After zoning in from The Mountains of Rath; take a right and go pas the Merchants and the bandits. The tents are on a small pier with orcs standing around them.

or those that are good with co-ordinates, it is around 3486.15, -663.23, -27.06.

Grabbed this shovel for my little necro on Time-locked progression server today.

Same place it always has been, on the ground in the 2nd tent.

Picked it up invis, so was safe at level 8 to grab it. Orcs conned red to me.

The exact spawn location of this weapon is 3500, -620. It is inside the back tent at the orc camp, which is located along the northern shore of Lake Rathetear between the cabin and ogre camp.

As of 6/1/04, most of the stats are correct. The shovel is Medium-sized, has a Slot-1, Type-4 Augment slot, 4-Damage, 27-Delay, 6 pounds, etc.

Unless you're a monk, if you want to work on your two-handed blunt skill, this is the pretty much one of the best weapons to use.

can't equip the shovel? sorry, it's all all, so anyone can (regardless of skill being had) the pole is practicly all/all with only DE/ERU being missing (though I may be forgeting a race) besides, where do you see what class/race the poster is anyway?

I wandered the mountains for hours. Killed dozens of orcs just for fun. Maybe stomped a hill giant or two. Couldn't find the shovel. Can someone post a loc?

Which zone where you in? If you're wandering around Rathe Mountains, you're in the wrong zone. It says it is found in Lake Rathetear. It also may not have a set loc. Might be a random ground spawn.
This would be nice

This would be wonderful to have. I've got a Drakkel forged Sledgehammer, and Just reached level 20, so the damage cap is off, but have not kept my triaing up in 2HB and need to get skill up fast. The Sledge hits so slow, it is worthless to train with. My 1HB is a Wraith Bone hammer, so I'm already maxxed in 1HB, one Bubble into lvl 20.

"It's is difficult for non-rangers to understand the respect and dedication that we rangers hold for "the Shovel". The Abandoned Orc Shovel is an elegant weapon from eons past, not clumsy like a Yak. It is a weapon that we rangers revere. It is written in the ranger chronicles that one does not find the Abandoned Orc Shovel, it chooses you if you are deemed worthy. There is an ancient society that all rangers who have been chosen belong to. It is the Order of the Shovel, its purpose is to promote the way of the shovel, to master its form, and to bonk all enemies, as well as bless those in need with healing bonks. To be at one with bonking, and being bonked. There is only path for a ranger and that is the path of the Shovel.

This is but a very fragmentary explanation, to truly understand the way of the shovel, one must spend a lifetime seeking its meaning. As I am only an initiate, I fear that no feeble words of mine will do the Shovel justice."

Correct Location of the Item

The Abandoned Orc Shovel is not dropped by alligators. It is lying near the fire in the small orc camp in Lake Rathetear. Practically anyone who can reach Lake Rathe can walk into the orc camp and pick up the shovel with ease, since the orc centurions are such low level.

This is a VERY handy item for raising the 2HB skill however, since (at least currently) it is the fastest one in the game.

The item called "Shovel" does drop from gators in Cazic Thule, and is the one required for the mage focus quest. Maybe that's what somebody was thinking about when they listed this?

But as a side note to any mages reading this, just get the shovel for the focus item quests from the dark elf mage chicks in Najena. Its much much easier. I did the focus item quests at level 32-35 and I walked all over those tramps. Once you hit 34 and get Cinder Bolt they are one spell dead and you don't even have to bother with the pet, it evaporates on their death if you haven't aggroed it.
