Theron Rolius, in the hall of truth needs shark skins to make shields. He gives you a container to fill with two sharkskins and combine. You can kill the sharks or buy the skins, but you probably won't get your money back if you buy them.



You say, 'Hail, Theron Rolius'

Theron Rolius says 'Greetings, _____! To enter these grounds is to proclaim your faith in the Truthbringer. In this city you shall find no greater allies than the Knights of Truth. We urge all knights and clerics who oppose the hand of the Freeport Militia to [join the crusade].'

You say, 'join the crusade'

Theron Rolius says 'Then take arms against the Freeport Militia! They serve no one save Sir Lucan, the fallen knight. From this day forth, I put a bounty upon all militia members. For every bashed milita helm, a reward! If you are not prepared to battle the militia just yet, you may [assist in other areas].'

You say, 'assist in other areas'

Theron Rolius says 'I have need of one such as you. I have been awaiting a message. I will need a young acolyte to [retrieve the message] for me or there are also some [fishing duties] I wish to delegate.'

You say, 'fishing duties'

Theron Rolius says 'I have been creating shields for the crusade. Right now I work on the sharkskin shield for the knights. I require two shark skins. Unfortunately, most sharks are too dangerous for the squires. I have begun using [reef shark] skins. Will you [hunt the reef sharks]?'

You say, 'reef shark'

Theron Rolius says 'Reef sharks are the smallest and most docile of the sharks. Even a young acolyte can slay one. I have heard there are some in the Ocean of Tears. I need a young acolyte to [hunt reef sharks]. I require their skins.'

You say, 'hunt reef sharks'

Theron Rolius says 'I thought I spied the shoulders of a swimmer upon you! Take this large sack. Travel to the Ocean of Tears. There are numerous reef sharks there. I shall require no fewer than two shark skins. When the full sack is combined and returned to me, I shall reward you.'

You receive Empty Shark Sack.

Go hunt sharks until you get 2 Shark Skins. You can hunt them in any zone, not only Ocean of Tears. If you go to Erudin, be sure to get the right skins, there is also a Lore version for another quest.

Combine 2 Shark Skins in the Empty Shark Sack to make a Sack of Sharkskins.

Give the Sack of Sharkskins to Theron Rolius to get your reward!

Theron Rolius says 'Fantastic work, my young knight. Here is a small token of my appreciation -- a fine Sharkskin Shield. It should serve you well in battle.'

New location for the revamped Fortune City is 1100, -432, -127.
After entering the Hall of Truth go straight north and cross the bridge. There are no faction hits for completing this quest.
The reward is just the Sharkskin Shield which requires 2 Shark Skins that have to be combined unstacked in the received container.

You have fashioned the items together to create something new: Sack of Sharkskins.

I did this quest today i had 40 shark skin, so
i did the combine with Theron Rolius. i then sold the shields. the merchant regarded me as an ally and i had a charisma of 134 -- very near best price i would think -- I received 1 gold, 4 silver, 3 copper per shield but the same merchant gave me 1 gold 9 silver per shark skin You Do the math -- this quest is recommended for those of us that like wasting time and money LOL

Yeah the shark is there did this quest today. But what confused me is hes not where the barb is at the docks hes past him to the right. Follow the wall till you see a guy fishing then dive. Sharks right there. This quest sucks, the shield is AC3 and I gave it to a lvl2 SK. But at low lvls you could sell for gold.

No Faction points for this quest. Somewhere I read that it gave faction points for those Pally's needing faction for Epic Questing, dont' waste your time here!!!

I thought I would point out how much this quest sucks. Maybe worth doing if you have a few shark skins just sitting around in your bank box or maybe for the faction. But the shield you get sucks. And im not even sure of the faction being all that good. I did the quest as my rogue to get my faction up with the pallies. I think it worked but he was only at level 6 and it still gave **** poor exp then. So I doubt the exp gets better at level 12.
cheap easy way

You can go into East Freeport and kill the shark found in the water.Which is near the rocks sticking up out of the water.There is only one in the zone and it's very easy to kill I could kill it at lvl 6.

The LORE Shark Skin and Baby Shark Remains are for a quest for a Barnacle Breastplate in the Deepwater Knights guild.

Reef Sharks

Theron told me the other day that while he used to make regular sharkskin shields, he now needs the skin of reef sharks, which may be found in the Ocen of Tears. I looked for them but couldn't find any, so I tried using two skins from the shark that spawns in FP harbor. It worked, and even though Theron told me he was sorry he could no spare a shield for me, one appeared in my inventory. Don't know why Theron asks for reef shark skins, unless it produces a different type of shield. Do reef sharks even drop a unique type of skin?
By the way, the shield is round and solid tan in color, presumably the color of the skarkskin stretched across it.
