Instead of bashin everything in the swamp to bits try talking to the troll sk (cant remeber his name) in the sk guild about the froglok mask quest and he spawns. Then you have to run before someone else gets him or he walks to close to a guard.
Me Beats HIM!

When I was a young troll shaman, this mob took me out easily. I recently visited my homeland as a 45th season shaman and took my revenge. For your information, the guardian was completely resistant to poison spells, hence I took him out with a disease DoT (I could have meleed him but I enjoyed watching the torture). In addition, he kept casting snare on me, but I resisted it every time.

Me stomping on tiny mushroom cuz dey feel gud when dey squish btween me toes. Dis spore guardian attack me close to Guk. Me only 7 or 8 sk trollie at time (no spells yet -dat all me know) and still kill him. He kast sum kind of spell dat slow me cuz i did run at furst - so I turn round and smashed him gud (without harm touch). He keep kasting da slow spell so maybe me got lucky! Oh well - me got froggie mask so me happy!

me saw him twice but when me was too low lvl to kill him. now mesa lvl 12 and back to smash him and no of course no sign of da mushie. spose dat always da way wit dese dings. anyhows me did hail da SK to maybe make him spawn? den ran a round guk and tower but only dose stinky elfs spawned? do u gota kill all dem to make him spawn maybes?
me killed 2 but the third was yellow and kicked me butt so had to zone guk..hehe
anyhows me sure me see him soon..... patience is always a virtue in EQ
does he ever spawn?

Okay, so I kill EVERYTHING in site in Innothule except the froggies, because of faction issues. Spore Guardian spawns once after like 20 minutes but a troll that wanders the forest came and killed him so I didn't get the head. Then, for four hours, it was me and two others in the WHOLE ZONE killing everything and nothing, nada...zilch. He never spawned. I am a level 15 Enchanter doing the quest...but, am I missing something here...HE NEVER SPAWNS...I know I killed a hundred of those little spores and bigger shrooms.

im a lvl 22 wiz. so i would basically wipe the floor with him? bien. muy bien, amigos.

Wow! I killed this guy along time ago on a troll shadow knight character i had at the time. The troll never got past the 12th level so i was definitely able to take him out at that level.
As for spawning, someone else must have been killing fungus spores because i was on a run back from Neriak at the time and i just happened to see him. I killed him easily enough. The spinning spell sucked but my Harm Touch saved my life, letting me finish him off pretty easily. Don't remember how much health i had left, but i know i survived, and i was only 12 (or less even). AND I WASN'T twinked.
how to make him spawn!!!

ok here it is i asked around and if you want to make this guardian spawn......you need to killall the fungus spores after you kill enough he will then spawn.... keep a close eye on all the mantracker for he looks just like one con all mantrackers... worked for my friend and i will try it. ASAP!!!! (it should take less than 2 hours to kill enough)

I have heen looking for this dude for weeks!!! If anyone has ever seen him spawn, or just hangout somewhere PLEASE post where. Thanks

The Spore Guardian can normally be found along the wall around the entrance to Guk or right across on the island where Lynuga usually spawns.

Watch out though; as previously stated this guy is bad news for lower levels because of the nasty Clockwork Poison spell he loves to drop on you quite frequently.

Anyway best of luck and happy hunting =)
mushroom head....
# Sep 03 2000 at 5:47 PM Rating: Default
is the mushrrom head a no drop item? cause since i can't get into grobb, i think, i was going to make an oggre character and give item to him.... so is that possible?
RE: mushroom head....
# Jan 05 2001 at 5:05 PM Rating: Default
Well, Iam an Ogre shaman and Iam bond in a walk around all the time through Grobb. You must have accidently hit the A button or destroyed your faction. I've been there for 5 lvls and never got bashed.
Bad Idea!
# Dec 30 2000 at 11:53 PM Rating: Default
Although they may seem to get along just fine, ogres and trolls want nothing more than to eradicate each other. I had a ogre SK and I walked to Grobb (FUN!). Got my sorry **** bashed in. Good luck.
RE: Bad Idea!
# May 31 2002 at 10:15 AM Rating: Default
I believe it has something to do with your diety more than your faction. Dont Ogre SKs worship Rallos and Troll have either Innoruk or Cazic?
RE: Bad Idea!
# Sep 03 2001 at 5:08 AM Rating: Default
Simple explanation... Trolls and Ogres DO get along... Basically. However The SKs aren't best friends which becomes very clear if you talk to people.. At least as a troll SK in Grobb!

Found one....

My pet and I were happily slaying a diverse variety of frogloks due south of the Guk entrance on a nice piece of flat ground right up against the wall. The next thing I know, I'm spinning... I can see this red and white mushroom pass across my whirling vision. YOU ARE KILLED BY SPORE GUARDIAN. Unless these guys wander through deep water that must be a spawn location
Me Troll SK, Hear me Roar

Har Har, he was easy at lvl15 for me da troll shadowknight, I jus reverse kited him to guk, I got da mask too, it a nice mask fer newbies like me. But he has same clockwork poison spell as the fungus mutant in upperguk in the mushroom land. So unless ya can cast don't mess with it. Btw he spawned twice in 30min for me.
spinny spinny is bad

Hiyas! I's Bazuka, troll shaman type of. I's edjumicated in Neriak, so's I learnt ta talk half-straight. I got my name from a gnomy tinker type, right before I ate him. Just watch out fer my backblast, hehehe. :)

Anyways, dis guy is bad news fer anybody under level 12 or so. If yer a shaman, ya may want ta stay away from him til ya's get dat Root spell at 14, den Root him, DOT him and blast him. Don't let him hit ya, he'll literally make yer head spin. Dat Clockwork Poison (same as da Whirl Til Ya Hurl spell what a darky chanter showed me) is funny to watch, but not funny at all to feel, believe me. After ya kills him, ya gots ta have good faction wit' da Grobb SK types ta get da mask (nice ting about us troll shamans, we start with enuf faction ta do EVERY quest in Grobb). Dis guy spawns every 8 hours earth (wherever dat is) time or so, I timed him out while huntin' him. He spawns out near Jojo's tower someplace, den usually walks past da Guk entrance headed towards Grobb. Hope all dis helps out.

Bazuka, Shaman o'da Rathe.
