Diggins is at location 653.74, 304.70 in North Kaladim.

After completing the Runnyeye Warbeads quest:


Diggins says 'Good work. We shall add these to the stash. Here is your reward, as promised. Be happy with it and continue your work. Maybe soon you shall be able to [earn a parrying pick].'

You say, 'I want to earn a parrying pick.'

Diggins says 'So you want to earn a parrying pick? Consider it an honor that I am even speaking of this with you. The guild had these picks made just for us. It is a magic item used to fend off attacks. Before you can have one, you will have to do me a [great favor]'

You say, 'What great favor?'

Diggins says 'Mater has asked me to exterminate the dwarven family of Dunfire. They were once members of our guild. They left and now use their talents to aid the Butcherblock bandits. We will not allow them to speak of the skills we taught them. Go and rip out their tongues. Return the tongues of Crytil, Rondo, Keldyn and Barma Dunfire and the parrying pick is yours.'

menak (again!)

that qued's tongue is worthless. if your trying to complete the dwarven rogue quest all you need is the dunfire's tongues. there are 4 of them and one is in CB slave mines. i also believe peg leg's leg (hehe) is also worthless. the only people necessary are the dunfire's. i have tested this with my dwarven rogue and they are just npc's born to die. however i agree with the guy below and am bringing my DE necro over and im gonna slaughter them all anyway ;P

I also have Qued's tounge but have no idea what it is for. Maybe it could be added to one of my favorite casseroles. Hehe. Anyone know what Lowland Basalisk tounges are for?
Expanded Info
# Sep 04 2001 at 11:41 PM Rating: Default
Obviously this isn't a popular quest ;P
However, I did it and wish to post some additional info on it.
At first I had run into the same situation as Bindaruus (Hail Diggins and nothing for "great task" nor anything when asking about it). So I decided that it may be a stepped quest- I went ahead and did the 4 Runneye Warbead quest to see if it would lead on to the parrying pick one- Sure enough, turned in the 4 Runneye Warbeads and got something along the line (I wrote down the quest key phrase) that I can now >earn a parrying pick<. Asked him How do I >earn a parrying pick< (note: I want to >earn...< doesn't work<), and bingo, the >great task< of the 4 tongues comes up.

Last note: Once you get the 4 tongues are in, Diggin leads you on to tell Mater (up by the bank) that you are >ready to earn mining pick 628<. Tell Mater this, and whammo- nother quest about an ogre... thats as far as I gotten. No Allakhazam info on that. But it seems to be a stepped quest for sure. I certianly hope that it goes a bit farther after that... (alwasy been of the opinion that each race/class combo should have its own special "epic" of sorts).

Parrying Pick Quest
# Aug 02 2001 at 9:34 PM Rating: Default
I've got a dorf L10 rogue on Mithaniel Marr (Bindaruus), and have time and again completed the Warbeads quest for Diggins. Somehow, I get nothing out of him on the "great favor" in order to complete the Parrying Pick quest. My fac should be way high enough by now to get the quest. Not long ago, for ****** and giggles, I returned all four tongues from Barma, Rondo, Crytil and Keldyn to Diggins and got Absorutery Nothing! What gives, O my fellow Waery Travelers?
Any suggestions are welcome!
faction with 628 miners
# Jul 20 2001 at 11:44 AM Rating: Default
Does your faction with Diggins (assume that means the 628 miners) need to be higher than indifferent to get this quest, or can only rogues get this quest? I've killed many bandits and have the right tongues, but can't get the quest from Diggins.

# Jul 27 2001 at 6:41 PM Rating: Default
I believe you have to be a rogue only for this. Im pretty sure they set up a LOT of rogue quests with that whole idea of rogues are all secretive and only their members would even know of the guild and stuff.
RE: faction with 628 miners
# Jul 23 2002 at 2:09 AM Rating: Default
I'm a rogue - gnome rogue - and Diggins cons Amiably to me. But he said he can't trust me with the quest and took all 4 tongues, the jerk!
RE: faction with 628 miners
# Aug 27 2002 at 8:24 PM Rating: Decent
I believe you not only have to be a rogue to do this quest, but also a dwarf. I am a wood elf rogue, the dwarfs all con amiable or as an ally, ive killed all the bandits at least once, some a few times, and i still cant get this quest. If anyone not a dwarf has done this quest id like to know how you got the quest from him.

Lesser Spirit

Killed pegleg and A Lesser Spirit spawned over his body. Hailed it and it started questionsing me about what I just did. Gave 3 options for why I killed him. Told it the 'he's evil' option and got a thanks and nothing else. Told it the 'I didn't like him' option and it poofed, so didn't get a chance to try the third. Kept calling me shaman too. odd.

The spawn of the Lesser Spirit begins the Shaman epic quest. There are a few different mobs around Norrath that when killed cause it to spawn. I don't know why it's with Pegleg, since Faydwer is not exactly home to any Shamans. Maybe it's a bandit thing. Ignore the Lesser Spirit unless you're a Shaman starting the epic quest.
Margyl & Peg Leg
# Apr 09 2001 at 8:04 PM Rating: Default
Anyone have information on Margyl's Tongue or the Peg Leg that drops off of two other mobs at the bandit camp with Crytil?
Qued's tongue
# Mar 01 2001 at 3:27 PM Rating: Default
Do not add Qued to the parry pick list. No one seems to know what his tongue is for but it certainly does not belong with the Dunfire quest.

Barma Dunfire can be found from when your at the Xroads take a left but follow the wall instead of the road, you'll eventually end up at the bandits camp, where Barma can be found, kill her and get her head. Crytil and Keldyn can be found at the second Bandit camp where Peg Leg is. From the Dwarven Skeleton Towers, follow the right wall, you'll end up at the second Bandit Camp. Kill the two bandits to get both of their heads. You can find Rondo deep in Crushbone, where the slaves are. He will spawn in place for one of the orcs, I forgot which one though. Good luck, this quest leads to the Mining Pick 628 quest.

I assume that the rogue QUED is also to be added to this list as I have just taken his tongue.

No. There are 10 of these named bandits in Butcherblock plus 1 in Crushbone, and they all drop their own tongue (except Peg Leg who drops his leg). You only need the 4 Dunfire bandit tongues for this particular quest.

Nope. Don't know what Qued's tongue is for, but it's not this.

Quests never require more than 4 items at a time (and possibly some cash). Some quests get around that restriction by having you combine things in a combine container of some sort to reduce the number of items you have to turn in, but this is not one of them.

think that maybe, Queds toungue is a throw off?!?
