This quest is offered by Bungre Crawcrusher, an Othmir at location -800, -400 (in the hut closest to the Skyshrine zone).

You say, 'Hail, Bungre Crawcrusher'

Bungre Crawcrusher says 'What manner of creature are you, strange one? I can see that you are not native to any nearby territories. Your thin flesh and lack of hair would mean certain death when the ice queen breathes upon these seas.'

You say, 'I am a half elf'

Bungre Crawcrusher says 'I have heard not of your kind but you are welcome to take refuge on our beaches, we only ask that you help to defend them should the predators choose to attack.'

You say, 'What predators?'

Bungre Crawcrusher says 'There are many dangerous predators that prowl the surrounding oceans and cliffs. It is my duty to train pups to become strong warriors in order to defend our villages. The wyverns on the cliffs prey primarily on the wounded and sick as well as many creatures that live in the brackish waters of our bay. The deadliest predators are the ones that roam all the coasts preying not only on my people but the Snowfangs and the Ulthork as well. Kelorek'Dar and Lodizal are the most feared of all.'

You say, 'What about Lodizal?'

Bungre Crawcrusher says 'Lodizal is a giant carnivorous sea turtle that roams the iceclad ocean preying primarily on the Snowfang gnolls. The Snowfang gnolls are not trusted by we Othmir as they survive on the skins and meat of walrus and otter but Lodizal is a threat to all coastal dwellers. Should Lodizal ever be slain I would be willing to craft a shield from his shell and adorn it with Othmir runes. I would charge ten thousand gold for the service.'

A Section of Lodizal's Shell drops from Lodizal in the Iceclad Ocean. Bring it back along with the 10,000 gold pieces (1,000 platinum also works).

Bungre Crawcrusher skillfully crafts the section of Lodizal's shell into the shape of a shield. He then attaches sturdy cured walrus hide leather straps to the inner side of the shield and inscribes intricate glowing runes on the shield's face. When he is finished, he hands you the shield and claps loudly.

Your faction standing with Othmir got better (+5)
Your faction standing with Ulthork got worse (-1)
You gain party experience!!

With as much as Lodizal is religiously farmed I bet this is the richest NPC in all of EverQuest. Still to this day it is a nice EB item you can just on your back and forget about it being that there is no such thing as a defiant cloak. As I am again camping him for my BST's eyepatch, can't wait to get another shield and put it on him as well. Camps sure used to be fun before it all turned to raid instances...

For a similar level item at 50-ish, the Necro & SK life leech spell isn't to cheap either at 3kpp (The Etched Stone quest). Although that's only good for necro's & SK's.

Rouge shroud does work.
he does take 1000 platinum insted of 10 000 gold

if you hand in less then 1000 platinum he will say

sorry stranger but that is not enough to barter with. He will then return the money to you but he will keep the shell pice. No danger just hand in teh correct amount of money ( 1k pp or 10k gp) and he will give you the shield.

Well I did this with my level 22 halfling druid who con'ed indifferent just to see what kind of xp he would get. Was at 87% to 23 and got 13% to ding. Since I had 7 shells total, I turned in another 6 for an additional 62% xp. Not bad for a turn in but getting 10k in gold their wasn't easy. Got ported their by a higher druid, binded myself right in front of Bungre and gated back to nexus. Picked up 10k gp, gated to bind, did turn in and back to nexus with new shield to put in shared bank and repeat. Logged to alt and gave shield to them to hold or sold them on the spot. So from now on when I buy up a bunch of lodi shells and do the turn in my druid is gonna get free xp.
I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you thought you heard was not what I meant.

Beastlords can also use this as a back item. The EB on it is very nice for raids in airless zones.

Is this mob a good raid for a guild around 50+? And approx. how long is the spawn?

If you're serious, his exact database spawn time is 12 hours, +/- 1. Meaning, 11 to 13 hours, but guaranteed twice a day.

Me and 2 guilds took him out today. He dropped the club, boots, 2 iceclad maps, and 1 shell. Was hopeing for more shells, but take what we can get. We all 3 got something though, the 55 cleric (friend of mine) won the shell, nice upgrade to his acrylia cloak. Warrior wanted club, and I took the boots for a alt since nobody wanted. Then we logged our newbie alts on and grabbed the maps.

I solo'd him tonight with my 65 Elem ranger. Weaponshield while slowing with Swarmcaller proc, then switch to 2h DPS weapon. Patch self between rounds. Dropped club, ring, shell and 2 map pieces.

Lodi, he's not just for casters any more ;)

just pondering if this would be duoable by a 65 rogue with 75aas and a 51dru w/no aas or if itd be possible to kill the guy if we added a 53mage?
RE: Duo?
# Mar 26 2004 at 2:54 PM Rating: Default
hmmm 51 druid doesnt have a lot of healing power unless druid could snare and agro lodi while rogue chased around backstabbing. but i would deffinately bring the mage or a slower because the druid may not be able to keep up the heals. lodi doesnt hit very hard but without slow u might not be able to take all the damage since the druid can only heal for like 580 points.

Well he ain't all that magic resistant so yo ustart off by sending in pet then malos and slow then Q or torpor yourself and just sit it out while pet and dots do the work.

got my section of lodizal's shield today along with 4th part to map quest and the spell protection of the glades. took him down with a 61 war, 62 cleric, 59 shammy, and me a 51 bard. i was only there cuz the other 3 were my RL buddies, and i needed the 4th part of the map quest. they already had shield so they let me loot it, and i won spell on a roll. took him out pretty easy (not that i was doing too much, lol).

It's just the one item, but it can be equipped in either the back or secondary slot.

Just to let everyone know who is curious about faction needed with the othmirs, i just did this quest about 5 minutes ago and i have dubious faction with the otters. Worked like a charm.

Does anyone know if you have to give 'Bungre Crawcrusher' 10k gp or can you give him 1kpp. It seems 10k gp may cause me to not be able to move lol. Thanks

It says gold, use gold. Cut corners and pay for stupidity. Anyway 10000 or a million gold will move your agi to 1. Any amount of weight past that is meaningless and a sow or SoE will move you at the same rate...

this is true. any quest involving currency, it doesn't make a difference as long as you give the right total amount. you could give him 1,000,000 cp and it'd work, or 999pp 9gp 9sp 10cp would work

Try giving the gnome in Rathe Mountains for the JBoots quest anything other then 3250gp not 325pp...it won't work...and also there are a few faction quests for SolRo temple faction in SK you can only give gold...tehre may be a few quests in which it will work but not every one of them.

my 2cp's & I'm out
RE: 1kpp is fine
# May 25 2003 at 1:52 AM Rating: Default
It sure DOES work when you give him 325pp for jboots quest.

i've seen many cases where it doesn't work. really, get a sow and do the turnin how they ask or you might be in a world of pain.

sowed/jbootsed you can move no matter how encumbered you are
#Daggerwolf, Posted: Jun 07 2003 at 11:35 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) shows how little you know. just try it when you're weight is something like 2000/150, or some other very largely disproportionate (spelling?) numbers.

# Sep 01 2003 at 7:59 AM Rating: Default
well i have walked out of bazaar with something like 10000/50 (level 1 bazaar mule with lots of pp and trader bags), and i could move again once i got sow from someone (luckily i zoned into nexus, not shadowhaven where you can't sow)
i moved really slowly, but i was able to move.

If in SH, you can get a druid to port you to Nexus and sow you there...

Also, strength buff will often let you move, so don't get frantic if you zone to SH as I have a couple of times.

BTW, if you keep bazaar mules as I do, it is easy to forget the weight issues when you want to zone to get a quick item or two....))

My guess is no. I did the emerald dragonscale quest with the othmirs at indifferent, so I'm guessing this can be done at indifferent as well.

Its extremely unlikely that you are going to find a group that would let you loot this as the shell is worth 10kp or more, and even if everyone in the part is wearing a Lodizal Shell Shield, they can still pickup more shell sections and sell them.

My group took Lodi out tonight on prexus server lodi dropped 2 map pieces and we let them rot so chances are if you ask nicely and no one on kill tema neds they will let you loot.
thats funny...

i thought if mobs did more then half damage, even if they died afterward, then if the mob they were beating on died there'd be no corpse? maybe they should change it back to that, because all this crap of lv 43 druids killing him by merely pull through gnolls is bs, next we will be hearing that lv 25 druids did him piece of cake, i mean jeez.
