Note: Unless you're an enchanter with the benefit of faction spells and illusions, this quest may be a bit time consuming.

Clurg, the Ogre bartender in Ogguk, has lost his bartender's compendium and wants it back badly. It is currently held by Bartender Gregor, in the Seafarer's Roost in East Freeport. Fortunately, Gregor has a lust for exotic drinks, and lacks only the ingredients to make his dream concoctions. He will give you the compendium for those ingredients. He wants you to get him the following items:

- Kiola Nut (purchased on the island of Erollisi in the Ocean of Tears for 2 gold pieces)

- Erud's Tonic (NO TRADE item that results from a quick quest; see the link to the left)

- Honey Jum from Rivervale (droppable item that results from the Honey Jum quest; see the link to the left)

- Koalindl Fish from the lake in the Temple of Life in Qeynos (NO TRADE item). You can get this fish one of a few ways: You can do the Regurgatonic quest in Ak'Anon and give the tonic to Frostbite the dog in West Karana (who coughs up a fish). You can also kill Frostbite (at the expense of your Halas faction). Or you can kill koalindl fish below the Temple of Life in Qeynos (major faction hits with the Priests of Life).

Give these items to Bartender Gregor in East Freeport. It's suggested you do the turn-ins one at a time to prevent it from getting bugged. You'll receive some platinum and the Bartender's Compendium (NO TRADE).

Take the Compendium to Clurg. If you're KOS in Oggok, you'll need to do faction work beforehand. Ogre or Dark Elf illusions coupled with a faction spell will also work, provided your faction isn't too low.

Upon doing the turn-in, Clurg gives you the Stein of Moggok.

For Dark Elves, check out The Dark Elf's Guide to Obtaining the Stein of Mogguk.

Running Through the Quest...

You say, 'Hail, Clurg'

Clurg says 'Hello, friend. Have a drink. I have some [unique drinks]. Try one. And remember. You get rowdy, the [Bouncers] crush you.'

You say, 'What unique drinks?'

Clurg says 'I have been all over Norrath and even served with some very great [barkeeps in Freeport]. I am the creator of both [Flaming Clurg] and Ogre Swill.'

You say, 'What barkeeps in Freeport?'

Clurg says 'Yes. I have journeyed to many taverns, but it was in Freeport that I acquired most of my art. I compiled all my drink recipes in a [special book].'

You say, 'What Flaming Clurg?'

Clurg says 'The Flaming Clurg was my greatest creation. It brought me great respect in Oggok. Unfortunately, I have heard tales of an [imposter drink].'

He won't say any more unless your faction is high enough.

You say, 'What special book?'

Clurg says 'Find ways to help all in Oggok. Then we will have conversation.'

You say, 'What imposter drink?'

Clurg says 'Find ways to help all in Oggok. Then we will have conversation.'

On Ragefire Alliance works on this guy even though he is a merchant. As a lvl 18 human enchanter that IS NOT agnostic I had no problem doing this. Used illusion ogre and alliance to get amiable with him.

+50 to all factions, -50 to Kazon Stormhammer.

For faction junkies, this quest is pretty easy. The only "hard" part is getting the Honey Jum ingredients to turn in. Kiola nut is easiest. Erud's Tonic is simple unless someone was dumb enough to kill erudites to be enemies with the rare citizens of Erudin faction. Koalindl takes time, unless brash enough to just kill the poor dog/fish for it.

<Upon giving Clurg the Barkeep Compendium>

Clurg says 'Ahhh!! My Barkeep Compendium has been returned!! I am in your debt. I do not like to be in any man's debt. Let me offer you this as payment for your great service. Obtaining my book could not have been a simple task.'

Many posts below complaining about the (now old) nerfs to enchanter's alliance spells.

Sometimes you can find a non-quest npc in the same zone to cast alliance on that shares the faction you need boosted.

So unless they nerfed that as well...

This quest still works as of 02/16/2010

Completed with Gnome Enchanter, agnostic. Using the method below by Rhynn Bowdreamer. I turned in about 100 lizard tails to Horgus and 40 meats to Kogna. I also turned in about 30-40 lizard tails to Grevak. Clurg finally responded to the phrase "What Special Book?" by telling me about the compendium.

He would not respond the the phrase after amiable faction with the warrior guild after turning in the tails to them alone. He finally responded afte turning in the tails to Grevak. Both Shadowknight and Warrior guilds were amiable to my chanter when Clurg responded about the compendium.

Collecting the items for the quest itself worked without any probelms. The only issue is how the alliance spell has been nerfed.

The quest still works but the final turn in to Clurg
I cannot get his faction with me above indifferent no matter
what I try.
Alliance no longer works on him or any other merchant.
I really wanted to do the quest for old time's sake but
it doesn't seem I'll be able to.

What is a Gnome Enchanter to do about Clurg faction?

I put on my Dark Elf illusion and tried to hand 3 pickled froglok and money to Chef Dooga, but she gave them back. When hailed, she gave no mention of wanting pickled froloks but talked about delivering something and HEHE meat.

Wow, I too was bummed to find the Alliance spell completely nerfed like this! I did all the componants, got the book and handed it to Clurg... and he hands it back to me. Wha??

So, I being an Erudite Enchanter, worked on my Clurg faction the hard way. The only quest I could do initially (because of indifferent faction) was Exterminate the Vermin. The husks are rare drops, so you just have to wail on every armadillo you can find in Oggok.

After a bunch of turn-in's (6-10 times?) my faction was good enough to do Lizard Tails with Horgus. After a dozen turn-in's on tails, you should be able to do the Lizard Meat quest with Kogna as well.

I kept trying to turn in book every so often, and I must have turned in 2 dozen sets of meats, and the same for tails. (Craknak Warrios were kind to me) So, wondering if I needed Green Blood Knights faction too, I turned in the tails with Grevak for the Lizard Tails 2 quest.

BTW, I found the Lizard camp in Rathe Mountains at loc #22 on eqatlas map (approx. 0,-700) to be a fast source of tails, meats & mystic dolls!

Most have turned in a dozen of Tails to Grevak, and finally apporached Clurg with the 'What special book?" phrase (which was previously being admonished to seek other ways to help Oggok).. Yeah, he finally told me about the book! So, I handed him the dusty old book I've had for a week and I have my new Stein of Moggok! :)

So it is possible, and I'm sure I might have some small problem with dwarves in Kaladim for being such buds with the Craknek Warriors & Green Bloods. However, who is the quest now meant for???? Not the enchanter fun quest it used to be...
Who does Regurgatonic?
# Jul 20 2006 at 9:34 PM Rating: Decent

What person in his right mind does the regurgatonic sub-quest to get the Koalindl fish? Doing that is, well, sub-optimal. Simply park your chanter (or other fish-wanting character) at poolside in north Qeynos. Camp. Make a human noobie that starts in Qeynos. My favorite is an agnostic monk. Avoid druids and rangers, they start in Surefall, not Qeynos. You can use a half-elf as long as it's a class that starts in Qeynos. Make sure you don't go into the tutorial or this will take a LOT longer. The tutorial is great if you're starting a real character, but for disposables it's a PITA. Train your main weapon skill and get your noob chest armor. Go to the Temple of Life, where your main is parked, remember?

Now, kill the koalindl fish. They're only level 1. Yes, your noob will take nasty faction hits. Yes, your noob might die a couple times doing this. Who cares? Your noob is a disposable toon. Keep killing the fishes until you find the drop. LEAVE IT ON THE CORPSE!

Now camp and re-log your main. Wait a minute or so until the corpse unlocks and loot the fish. Tada! No nasty faction hit and no running to Surefall or Ak'Anon or West Karana.

You can keep your fish mule as long as you like, or delete him every time you don't need him anymore. The only difference really is that once he's KOS the fish will attack him, making it easier to gain aggro. But if he dies, he's unlikely to make it back to the temple alive, since he's KOS. Once that happens, delete him and start over.

Oh yeah, almost forgot. Alliance doesn't work anymore. You'll need to do some factioning in Oggok prior to turning in the book. Click on the "Clurg" faction link on the left of the quest for info on that.

"Note. You really need to be an enchanter to do this quest. It is not impossible for other classes to do it, but it is impractical"

I'll assume that the above not was written by an enchanter who assumed that only they had the required range of skills. Monks and rogues can possibly do this quest as noted in other comments, but they do lack the Alliance spell.

However, bards can use:
Sneak - level 17
Cinda's Charismatic Carillon (Alliance) - level 13
Shauri's Sonorous Clouding (Invis) - level 19
Mask of Deception (Illusion Dark Elf) - drop from level 35 mob

Without the mask, the quest is dangerous and may result in a few deaths. With the mask, the quest is a piece of cake.

Does anyone know what's wrong with Frostbite? Whenever I try to give him the Regurgitonic, he just gives it back to me, and if someone kills him, there is never a fish on his corpse.

As was mentioned in the Regurgitonic quest page. It is possible to get a Bad Regurgitonic which won't work. Cast Identify on it and you will be able to see if it is the right one or not.
Kimble's Disappearance

I did this quest a few days ago on Venril, but when I came to give Kimble the Flask of Nitrates I initially couldn't find him. I eventually did find him hiding in the big metal boiler thing at the end of his corridor. The only way I could hand him the nitrates was to /target kimble with the targeting ring turned on in options, I could then just about see the targeting ring under the boiler and hand Kimble the flask.

Hope this helps anyone else who might be baffled at Kimble's disappearance.

Thank you for posting that Mubaris. I just went yesterday to restock my Moggok components and couldn't find Kimble. I already had the Koalindl fish so didn't need the 'tonic right then, so shrugged and went on about my business. Today he still wasn't there, and before I went to find a tracker to see if he now spawns somewhere else in the zone, I read your post. Lo and behold, Kimble is hiding in the boiler on Tholuxe Paells too. F8 won't work, only /tar command like you say, and I only found one tiny area of the targeting ring that would bring up the trade window. Very annoying, I submitted a bug.
That is all

first off to the post below, and all the other folks asking, if frostbite refuses the regurge, its gone bad get a new one. you should be level 12 to do this (generally, since most illusions are available by then), you should nearly have identify, which helps to discern the correct regurgitonic (from what somebody below posted). its much easier to make an alt to kill fish in qeynos, what you do is time it so you kill the fish when it just turns around, so youre fighting in the middle away from trouble, eventually the fish will just come up to you and start attacking, you will become KOS very quickly, in less than 10 stein runs im basically kos, when you get a fish (dont forget to loot to make sure it dropped corpse), run to the ramp and camp there, i never see npcs wander by there. then log in and loot the fish.

as far as factions go, it took about 12 stein runs to get dubious in oggok (erudite enchanter worshiping quellious) and KINDLY to clurg. im also indifferent to the freeport turn in npc by now, so most of the quest i dont have to use illusions or alliance. i only have to alliance the halfling in rivervale to get jum, but with some RV questing i should fix that easily as well.

RE: Quest Changed?

I also had this problem about a week ago. I logged in again today and tried to give it to him again: no sucess. ArcaneRide gave a good suggestion, and I'll go give it a try.

The suggestion from ArcaneRide works. I may start the habit of casting identify before I run to the Barbarians in West Karana. I wonder if the bad regurgitonic has a use.

Update 2:
I used identify after the Gnome handed me the regurgitonic. It was BAD! I handed the stuff back think he might give me a refund or something, but he said he has no use for it and gave it back. Maybe having no use for it is why he gave it to me in the first place, Smiley: grin

Create a mule in Qeynos after you have camped the character actually doing the quest by the pool then use the mule to kill the koalindl fish (sk with HT up is excellent choice for this). Camp the mule, relog your main and collect the dead koalindl from the pool. You don't die, you lose no xp, get no negative faction hits!

Important Safety Tip
# Apr 07 2003 at 12:47 AM Rating: Good
25 posts
Okay, not so much a safety tip as a **********, now I have to do that all again" prevention tip.

I made level 12 tonight and decided to run the quest.

Made a trip to OOT and bought a dozen or so Kiola Nuts (Yes, I plan on doing this one several times)
They were just over 1 gold each, and there was no price difference between Indifferent and Amiable faction. Illusion: Wood Elf

The Eruds Tonic was easiest of all of 'em. No negative faction hits, and a positive for EruditeCitizens or some such.
less than a gold for the Kiss of Death. No Illusion, as I am an Erudite.

HoneyComb was probably the most annoying, since I couldn't find a bixie with one to save my life. I was using my ranger to track 'em. Finally managed to get enough, though. Also found what may be a bixie spawn point in E Commons and got lucky buying 6 off the vendor nearby. About a gold each.
Illusion: Halfling and an Alliance (which probably wasn't needed)

The Fish: Chose the No Negative Faction method. Lotta running, but what the ****.
A time saver for other who will be doing this repeatedly- After you get teh Regurgitonic and head back for W Karana, swing by Surefall on your way and get a new Nitrate. One less run next time.
No cost. Illusion: Gnome for Regurgitonic and Illusion: Human with an Alliance for the Nitrates and Frostbite.

Handed them all in to the SeaFarer's Roost (Illusion: Human + Alliance. Probably necessary, but didn't feel like testing to find out)

Headed off to Ogguk. Illusion: Dark Elf works fine to get in. The Bartender is way the **** in the back of the zone. Don't forget to reapply Illuson if you aren't really a Dark Elf
Here's that Tip I mentioned....
Alliance only works on one NPC at a time (I tested after the fact)
First time out, I allianced him, then the bouncer...and didn't recheck him. He ate my book.

Second time, I just Allianced him...no problem, and my faction at turn in was Indifferent.

I think I can probably do the whole thing in under 30 minutes at this point...assuming I have the Honeycomb and Kiola Nut to start out with.

Total cost (even buying the honeycomb from Vendors): around 4 plat.

Have fun, enjoy all the healthy running!

Alliance works on FACTIONS not indiviuals and not whole zones. Guards and merchants are generally on different factions.

Yup, the Alliance line changes your standing with a faction temporarily. I don't think you can have Alliance up on two different factions. From what was related above, probably the second cast overwrites the first one.

But yes, it's zone-wide, until you zone. That's in the nature of how it works. It's on you, not them. Any other approach would be messy to implement, and this way is so simple. It just ups your faction for awhile.

Clurg has his own faction, named "Clurg" faction for some reason. :) I believe Clurg is initially indifferent to all except maybe iksar. An iksar who managed to finish this quest somehow would be **** impressive and need a life.

The bouncer is on another faction...I forget. Crakneks probably.

I would think an iksar monk, with a gnomish vanishing device, would have very little trouble doing this.

A monk can sneak behind an NPC, and if they are still indifferent at that point, open a trade window. Once the window is open, FD ensures that they don't notice you're there, and start disliking you.

So, if indifferent is really good enough faction, an iksar could easily do this, as long as they were a monk.

The vanishing device is to make getign through the zone easier, it would be Possible, with just FD/sneak, but a lot slower.

Sneak always make you indifferent assuming you're behind the mob. Just a quick note.

Quest worked fine again

Ok was reading some more posts here. The other night I destroyed the current regurgitonic I had and went back to get another one. This time around it worked. Did the whole quest a second and third time each with success.

By the way the tonic I had did not actually say "bad". Quite possibly you would have to cast an identify spell to know this for sure, but who can tell that from just looking at it? I never had a problem at all running the quest before. It was just a natural assumption to assume the quest might be broken as many people thought. No sense getting mad at people who made the same assumption.

A mage would need a lot of faction work. You need to go to a mix of good and evil towns: Erudin, Freeport, Rivervale, Oggok. Not just enter safely but have enough faction to do quest steps.

Surprisingly Gregor's might as hard as Clurg's faction requirements, or worse. As I recall he was apprehensive and wouldn't give me the quest without Alliance, whereas Clurg was indifferent. Clurg has his own faction and seems initially indifferent to everyone (the bouncers nearby are of course a different matter.) I'm an agnostic Erudite chanter.

Okay, just for the record, the quests involving this one are NOT NOT NOT broken!!! Just identify the regurgitonic when you get it from Kimble, if it just says "Regurgitonic", then you are okay. But if it says "Bad Regurgitonic", destroy it and go get another Flask of Nitrates and redo the quest. Please stop posting about the Regurgitonic quest being broken, just cast that hardly-ever used spell called 'Identify'.
Get the Fish

Another way to get the fish corpse is to make a mule.

Best bet is to make a human sk starting in Qeynos. Camp your main near the water where the fish spawn, bring in your lowbie SK and harm touch to kill the fish. Bring in your main to loot the corpse.

Worked for me =)

But don't get greedy and try to kill both fish at the same time. Killing one fish causes the other to take on "Godly" abilities.

You have been warned!

# Feb 13 2003 at 11:40 AM Rating: Decent
I've had the same trouble with Frostbite giving me my regurgitonic back. If he does that, you have to destroy that tonic and quest for a new one. I've had him refuse me about 1 out of 10 times. It sux to have to do all that running again but it does work.

The name of the dog is Frostbite, and a disreputable looking cur is he. However, he coughed up a fish in response to being given a Regurgatonic. In human form with the help of 'alliance' I was indifferent to him and his smelly barbarian friends.

I tried to run this quest again like I have done many times last night. Now Snowflake is giving the message "I don't need this..." and I keep getting the regurgitonic back. Thought it might have been because of the Patch and the fact that I had not actually downloaded it. I had actually run the quest ealier that day with no troubles.

Did a petition but that did not seem to help. So looks like Snowflake is broken again as of tonight.

As a dark elf you can pretty much do this quest right away... but anyone else does not get 1: Illusion: Dark Elf untill 12. Also I did not have a MULE persey for the jumjum juice... but a full on alt to make it. I think if you were DE you have to wait untill about 8 to at least be a gnome or woodelf.... (please hope you chose agnostic) and I did te WHOLE quest, and last second I forgot to cast Alliance... so I was indiferent... He said something along the lines of "you have done well but should leave before we crush you" basically. I personally made a lvl 2 mule Shadowknight... (lvl 2 because the fish was taking too long to kill at lvl 1 and the guy would bash me, if you can have harm-touch ready and a bow helps to pull away from guard, if you can get one) in qeynos to kill the fish, there is NO way its worth the quest with the dog. Trust me. dont kill the dog, dont do the quest... just kill the fish.

its actually pretty easy but very detailed in something as small as neglecting to cast alliance.

BS. Even with PoP, and being bound in the most strategic area, using gate, with a level 50+ SoW, it takes MINIMUM 40 minutes...that's IF you have a bag full of honeycombs and kiola nuts already (like I do).

Exactly what I was thinking. You have to run into the middle of WK, which is a big, BIG, zone. That itself took my enchanter with an epic druid's (not sure the lvl, she was /anon) sow about 5 minutes to get to Frostbite. Not to mention the tedious illusioning/invising when doing the Ogguk hand in and doing the entire regurgitonic quest, which is the only sane way to do it if you are a good aligned char.

With PoP this quest takes me about 20 - 30 minutes. First thing I did was go to the sister Isle and buy about 2 backpacks full of nuts. The next thing was to go to rivervale and scour the merchants for honeycombs. I also shouted out to the lowbies in the zone that i was buying them. I was able to get a few backpacks of them pretty quick. I bound myself at the south end of the PoK. From this point its just running around the PoK and gating. I've been selling mine on the Bristlebane server for about 200-300pp depending on how many others are being sold in the bazaar though I've seen them as low as 150 or so.

I've done this quest several times without problem following the suggestions above. But now, Frostbite in WK politely tells me he doesn't need the regurgitonic and hands it back to me. No fish. Thinking the quest might have been updated so that owners of a mug can't do it, I handed my mug to a friend and tried again. Still got the "don't need" speech. I tried turning into a barbarian and using Benevolence - still nothing.

Sigh. Any ideas?

BTW, I know the mug is lore, but I've done this part of the quest before with one in my possession.

I did the quest tonight, Oct. 31st, 2002, and the Regurgitonic worked just fine. The portals in Plane of Knowledge really help out in this quest. I think I did the whole thing, start to finish, in about an hour and a half. I was lucky enough to find honeycombs for sale at merchants, the rest was just running around and waiting for the boat to Sister Isle.

Maybe Frostbite was broken briefly. I fed him the Regurgitonic last night and got the fish. Worried in advance that faction had something to do with it ("I don't like you so I'm not going to puke for you" lol) I cast Alliance on him before giving him the tonic. I didn't notice any difference in faction though, so maybe he was just not being cooperative for one day.

Many players have the misconception that an enchanter of a "good" race must be agnostic to complete this quest. This is untrue, as i can now verify.

My enchanter is an Erudite, and a follower of Quellious, the Tranquil. This afternoon, i successfully completed the Stein quest. It may have helped that i waited until 20th level, as that gave me the benefit of three spells: Benevolence, Illusion: Ogre, and Sympathetic Aura.

NPCs will tend to be more inclined to deal with their own race, so looking like an ogre will be better than a dark elf. Benevolence has twice the faction adjustment of Alliance, which seems to compensate for the negative adjustment of following a deity that the ogres would hate. Finally, i threw in a Sympathetic Aura for a CHA boost, put on any CHA items i had, and got my CHA up to 134. Perhaps that made no difference, but i figured it couldn't hurt. :-)

Regarding the question of whether one should give Gregor the items one at a time to get the Bartender's Compendium: For the record, i gave Gregor (in Freeport) all four items at once, and he cheerfully handed over the Compendium.

At every step of the way during this quest, i always made sure to use an illusion to make myself the same race as the NPC i was dealing with, and also cast Benevolence for the faction adjustment. My faction with any NPC was never worse than Amiable.

Happy questing...

Finshed it as a 16 High Elf enchanter. Pretty much word for word from the guide, had no difficulties whatsoever except one.....crossing Kithcor to get to Rivervale. Remember, undead see thru invisbility. Safest way to do this is zone in to Kithcor, cast illusion Darkelf, then invis vs. undead. Pray that you have SoW and your invis vs undead holds up for the whole way across zone. I found it much easier to go straght across zone to Highpass, then around the sides of zone to Rivervale. Im gonna experiment with cutting thru Runnyeye citadel next time and see if it is any easier.

Here is a few added suggestions. Before starting the quest, bind at the Freeport docks. This saves some time. Go get the Kiola first, gate back, get a sow and haul tail thru the commons. Make sure you invis in WC, Kodiaks can be a problem. Go across Kithcor as I stated above. Reach Rivervale, get the honey jum. From here, go back to Highpass. Invis yourself again, at least till you get to the guards. (I stopped for a minute here to pick up my pet spells, some of which cannot be bought anywhere else to my knowledge, i.e. 12 and 16, possibly more.) Hopefully you will be able to get anopther SoW, cause next zone in to East Karana, to North Karana, West Karana (inivisibility the whole way recommended). Either Kill Frostbite in the SW corner of zone to get the fish, or continue on thru Qeynos Hills and North Qeynos. I got particularly lucky in finding a young Shadowknight to kill the Koalindl for me, so i didnt lose my faction. Other options are mules. I then proceeded thru South Qeynos to the docks, waited for boat, did the Erud part of it. Then, gate back, give the items to Gregor. Cast alliance on him, just in case. I gave him all at once in the order that he asked for them when giving out the quest. Voila, one Compendium! Next, get a Sow, Invis, and run to Ferrott. Straight south thru NRo, Oasis, Sro, and Innothule. Innothule was a breeze, just stick to the wall, invised if you are worried. At the entrance to Ferrott, put on Darkelf Illusion, just to be safe, invis, and hug the wall going right (north) you will eventually get to the entrance to Oggok. OPnce you zone into Oggok, check real quick to see if any ogres are aroun entrance, cast DE illusion again, invis again. Hang a left, follow grass till end. ( you will see the Tyrant. Once you enter the building at the end of the path, turn left again, then take the first left after that and follow the hall around. it ends in the bar with Clurg. Get next to Clurg, drop invis (hope you remembered to cast DE illusion, or you are a greasy spot!), /con him, cast alliance, and say what special book. If he answers favorably, give him the book, and you will become the proud owner of the Stein. Gate back, rinse, repeat if desired.

Took me about 4 hours, no trouble other than crossing Kithcor

Kithicor is no problem if you stick to the far edges of the zone. Get as high as you can, and never stop to look. I've gone through several times without trouble, including a night when a large guild was pulling General V'Ghera for the Rogue epic. Go around the north edge and it should not be a problem anymore, regardless of level.

# Jul 28 2002 at 4:58 AM Rating: Default
Killing the fish in the pond will not result in you being attacked immediatly uppon getting out of the water. The faction hits are severe, but if you kill the fish in one blow (I prefer the use of a nuke spell such as Sanity Warp) they will not attack you unless the faction hits drop you into the KOS range.

I did this with a lvl 12 enchanter who worships Tunare. I used Illusion DE to get apprehensive with Clurg and Alliance to get Indifferent.

Please don't hand things to NPCs without talking to them first. Usually they will say something to indicate whether your faction is adequate.

In this case just /say what special book?

Clurg's reply will indicate whether your faction is good enough to proceed.

I have done this quest about 6 times now with my Agnostic Dark Elf Enchantress. yesterday I did the quest 3 times hehe! I got a bit frustrated with the fish at one point I had my lvl 1 human shadowknight kill 4 Kolindl fishs to get one no drop fish! (he is so KOS now hehe) respawn rate on swimming kolindl not too bad though, and SK is on a second account so I had my chantress buff him with enduring breath which helps alot! Also Clurg is now amiable and I have found that I no longer need to cast alliance on him to get the stein =) This quest is excellent and on Druzzil Ro I am selling the steins for 200pp ea which adds up.
Another note, since the boats are currently "bugged" there are translocator gnomes at docks. What I have been doing is getting a port to Toxx (dubious to druids at rings) casting erudite illusion, going in and getting the tonic and taking the T/L gnomes to qeynos. at eruds crossing the kitty on the dock is indifferent, and there are no guards at qeynos. But even without illusions at most places I am not KOS, but dubious... I sure hope the patch tomarrow morning doesn't fix the boats, those T/L gnomes ROCK!

I play a High Elf Enchanter. I started this quest at level 8 and gathered all the components. When I turned in the components for the Barkeeper's Compendium I ding'd 9. :)

I tried to use invisibility then minor illusion to get the stein with no luck; the Ogres in the bar smacked me as soon as I started casting minor illusion.

Once I got to 12, I scribed the Illusion: Dark Elf spell and headed back. As before, I used invisibility to get into Ogguk. Once inside and out of sight of any Ogres (make TRIPLE sure you are), I cast Illusion:Dark Elf, then invisibility for an extra measure of security. Once I was next to Clurg, I held my breath, crossed my fingers and toes, and dropped my invisibility spell. Woot! No reaction. I con'd Clurg, and he was dubious. I cast Alliance, con'd again, and he was indifferent. Gave him the compendium, and he gave me the stein. A quick and hasty Gate, and I was safe!

I'm a level 35 erudite mage. Do you think an Idea of getting good Faction with just clurg (I can do this easily By killing dimloe Stormhammer numourus of times) then get a druid casting wolf form on me, I cast a pet, Then get out of wolf form, hand book into clurg and let bouncers attack my pet and then quickly gate to somewhere safe. Any thoughts on if this idea will work?

Yep, should work. You might be able to get to indifferent to Clurg and not even need a wolf form to get the stein. definitely will make you KOS to dwarves though, just be careful in butcher.

He told me to help the people of Oggok cnefu*@@swd!!!!!! You must have to be amiable. BE WARNED. I think if you want to raise your faction you need to fight Dwarven alies? any ideas anyone?

Enchanters get both Illusion Orge and Benevolence at level 20. My Eurdite Enchanter has done the Stein of Moggok many times and had no problems with Clurg or anyone else in Ogguk.

Level 1 Shadow Knights make excellent Koalindl killers. Because they can Harm Touch, they often can kill the fish more quickly than Paladins, Warriors, etc. I can camp and switch characters quickly enough that my Chanter usually has to wait a few seconds before the fish becomes lootable. (Not all Koalindl corpses carry the quest item you need. Be sure to check the timer on the corpse before switching to loot. Empty corpses will show less than 30 seconds on the timer.)

As an agnostic Wood Elf Bardess, I can do this quest in my natural form now. One week I got bored and did this quest 70 times (yes, I counted). I started out using my Guise of Deseption and Carrilion (faction song). Then just the mask, then just the song... Now, I just do the quest. I can't wander into any of the guilds (Warriors still hate me, and I can't figure out what faction the banker is on), but I can traverse the rest of the city at my leasure. Point being- you don't have to be a 'Chanter... a Bard or Rogue with the proper masks can do it just as easily. And besides... it's fun to scare the lowbie Ogres when a Wood Elf wanders into their city and the guard don't kill her. <w>
