You say, 'Hail, Tundra Jack'

Tundra Jack says, 'Good mining to you, kid! What are you doing way out here? You're gonna catch frostbite. The name's Tundra Jack, prospector supreme. Trained by the finest miners in Kaladim! Me 'n [Iceberg] have been out here for three years now, searchin' fer fortune.'

You say, 'Iceberg'

Tundra Jack says, 'Iceberg used to be a beast. He terrorized Halas for some time, then he met me. I tamed the beast and now he watches my back. You never know when the ice giants may go for a stroll from [Permafrost].'

You say, 'Permafrost'

Tundra Jack says, 'It's said that Permafrost used to be the lair of the ice giants. Most up and left for the icy continent of Velious. Now Permafrost is a haven for ice goblins and a few straggling giants. I have also heard rumors of a dragon within. I bet its lair is filled with silver and gold!'

You say, 'who is Megan?'

Tundra Jack says, 'Megan? Just a young warrior of the Wolves of the North. She sorta likes hangin' around ol' Tundra Jack. Must be my good looks.'

This guy has KS'd my barb rogue so many times, it's disgusting.

He's also killed my dark elf necro a few times... Very annoying.

Too bad... when I get high level, I'm gonna whoop his ***!

Thank you for the strategy Rhadamanthus... he's as good as dead when I hit 56

I agree. SOE should fix these stupid wandering KSing NPCs. TJ pissed me off so bad today that I immediately went over and murdered his girlfriend Megan O'Reilly. The faction drop went from apprehensive to dubious. I used to save her from orcs and leopards too but today was just the last straw.

If you follow their complete pathing cycle, you'll find that about 45 seconds before they arrive back at their "rest stop" building, _sometimes_ Iceberg will take off on a wild path away from TJ. TJ will then proceed to the building for about 30 seconds by himself before Iceberg shows up later. About 3 minutes later, they'll both start their pathing cycle together again.

Incredibly high resistance to Fear on Iceberg at least. Don't even bother trying to Fear him away from TJ.

Yes, you are mistaken, but only in that the Langseax quests involve Iceberg, not TJ. If you give Iceberg Lion Delight (Lion Meat quest), he will give you a sweaty shirt.
-Take the sweaty shirt and give to Frostbite in WK.
-Wait a bit then follow Frostbite to a running Barbarian.
-Kill Barbarian and loot the head
-Take the head to Renth in Halas and get a sword

Depending on the Barbarian Frostbite leads you to determines whether you get the Langseax or Langseax of the Wolves. Be careful if you're fond of banking in Halas as doing this a few times to try for the better weapon can create issues with Kevon at the bank (White Rose faction). You lose White Rose faction with this quest.

Killed him today for a bit of revenge killing =D. Has about 7200 hp, I rooted Tundra and sent pet on iceberg, (56 nec pet) pet kills IceBerg easily (specially with augmentation, very fast) slapped several dots and awhile later tundra was dead. He does have nasty resists though in earlier fights he's resisted me like crazy.
Wolf Form
# May 01 2002 at 4:45 PM Rating: Default
To get the faction up with Wolves of the North, I don't think that you can get it up by killing orcs (unless im mistaken.) Get 3 gnoll fangs from bb (no drop) and turn them into the warrior guild in Halas. Or kill/buy polar bear skins and turn them into the leather pattern seller in Halas.
Takes about 10-12 hours to get your faction high enough to wolf form without having TJ aggro you. I did this at lvl 24 so I could use wolf form, which lasts MUCH longer than sow. After all, the mammoths are good xp and cash until lvl 33 or so, and if TJ decides to stop by the IG's, an unsuspecting druid kiting may be the next victum...

You should all be ashamed of yourselves!
# Mar 31 2002 at 1:07 PM Rating: Excellent
Tundra Jack and Iceberg are orphans! Of course, Necros and SK love making hate and sorrow. But Tundra Jack is a miner, and his parents were crossing a frozen river to mine when they fell in and died. Jack saw them drown in icy waters and was really sad. He was once coming to where his parents died when a polar bear cub (Iceberg) left alone, was stuck in a crack of ice. Jack cracked open the ice and let the cub free, but it was abandoned, so he called it 'Iceberg' and then two orphans were friends. There I said it. Now get outta here!

SO what if he's an orphan, does that justify him killing me?, him and that stupid bear!! I want to send a message to both of them, Your days are numbered, I'm coming to kill you both.

Wolfform
# Feb 09 2002 at 7:08 AM Rating: Default
We were standing at the Bandl Canyon, the one to BB, with a group, hunting mammoth calves, and had a highlevel druid as a backup.
Unfortunatly the druid choose wolfform, I was watching the ravine, when suddenly these msgs popped up:

Thundra Jack hits for 125 points of damage.
Thundra Jack hits for 125 points of damage.
Thundra Jack hits for 125 points of damage.
Thundra Jack hits for 125 points of damage.
Thundra Jack hits for 125 points of damage.

When I had turned, Jack was already on his way on, and the druid was dead. Jack really DOESN'T like Wolfform it seems.

"NOOB" "NEWB" "NOOBIE"

Explained:

"Definition is a person who starts a character in a game they have never played before for the first time. A new adventurer, someone with little or no knowledge of the game they are currently playing."

We were all "noobs" at one point, did you consider yourself a total dumbass when you first started playing? Did you think you should start your brand new untrained character knowing everything about the game?

Didn't think so.

Get over it, and STOP using this term as an insult, when it has no insulting meanings attached to it other then in YOUR mind.

Reading is fundamental, extend your vocabulary beyond imaginary words.

P.S. "It is better to remain silent and let people wonder if you are an idiot, then to speak and remove all doubt."

Learn to spell. Then your totally unwitty pseudo-insults wont make you appear such a complete moron.

I've killed lots of orcs in Everfrost and it never affected any faction.

# Nov 18 2001 at 10:29 AM Rating: Default
Hes not aggro to any of the good races but hes a wolf of the north (faction) and anything they aggro to he will. Good way to raise faction is to kill the orcs in Everfrost.

Took out Tundra Jack and his bear last night on Cazic Thule. Took a 55 rogue, 55 shaman and a 51 cleric. Rogue did all the tanking buffed to 3k and 55 shaman pet fully buffed took out Iceberg. Close battle but victory was ours. Not bad with only three of us in the group. He only dropped two crappy picks and a few coins.

Lets see you people kill TJ without charming Iceberg or having ten of you like level 50 plus. Those two rock and have saved my butt more times than I care to remember.
