If you can't do any of the quests, fastest way to raise Craknek Warriors faction is to kill the Dwarven Smith and the female Dwarven Slaves in Crushbone.

Are the bouncers in Feerott on the same faction as these guys? If not, what faction are they and how do I raise it? Going to be hunting in Cazic Thule and Rathe Mountains for awhile, and I'm bound in the safe bit of Oggok - I'd rather not have to sneak through the whole Feerott on corpse runs. Thanks!

/agree Smallbelly

As an ogre warrior of Rallos Zek I was also killed by the Ogres in Neriak (he did say Craknek is best before I was bashed). At the same time all the ogres in the warrior guild in ogguk con warmly to me.. so what possible faction can these guys be on? Sounds kind of strange to me. This was also on Mithanial Marr...
Perhaps this something that needs to be addressed...

Gnomes are NOT kos to most ogres, or dark elves fro that matter, it depends on who you've killed. ) The guards scowl at me but to the merchants I am dubious. and as a chanter you should get that ally spell at 8 and be able to raise your faction with the guard next to Clurg enough for him no to kill you.
From Dubious to Amiable

For anyone else trying to raise their faction with CraknekWarriors (presumably to complete the Gatorsmash Maul quest), I just wanted to pass along what I did to reach amiable with the guild. As a Troll Shaman follower of Innoruuk, my faction began at dubious.

1. The only quest the guild leaders would give me was Lizard Tails so I did this quest 41 times, which took me to apprehensive.
2. I did the Lizard Tails quest another 4 times.
3. Tired of killing lizards, I went to Crushbone and killed the Dwarven Smith 63 times. This brought me up to indifferent and opened up the Noble's Crest quest.
4. I turned in 5 Noble's Crests and killed Bunk Odon twice. This got me to amiable, finally opening up the Lork's Brother quest (which leads to the Gatorsmash Maul) and the Lizard Meat quest.

So, in summary:

Completed Lizard Tails quest 45 times
Killed Dwarven Smith 63 times
Killed Bunk Odon 2 times
Completed Noble's Crest 5 times

All that and my Clurg faction is still at dubious :-P

Crakneks are Ogre Warriors, the enmity is between the opposing Shadowknight guilds Nightkeep (Troll) and the Greenbloods (Ogre).

On this site in a quest starting in Kaladim (South Kal I think), you are asked to Kill Trumpy Irontoe because he ran off on the guy's sister after agreeing to marry her. The Bloodforge guy says if you kill him you will be an honorary member of his family. Trumpy can be found in Qeynos, but killing him lowers your faction with the Crakneks.
What is up with that? how does trumpy Irontoe's death (a dwarf) effect your faction with Craknek (a group of ogres)? How is trumpy tied in?
This is messed up (

I was in Neriak to do the Preserved Meat "quest", and I didn't know the place at all. I went into this biggish building and saw a couple of Trolls and Ogres in armour standing around.

Now, before I do anything anywhere for the first time I con everyone I meet (merchies, guards..everyone lol). The merchies outside were dubious, and the guard outside the buildings was indifferent, so I assumed that while I wasn't popular with the residents, I was regarded as harmless by people in authority.


I conned 2 people in the big building. A troll merchie (indifferent) and then an Ogre called Uglan (I think..need to check log). Uglan conned threateningly and then took me out (he hit for 132 a cuppla times..I didn't even have time to turn
All I did was take one step into the building, stop, and con two NPCs.

My corpse was the other side of a door next to an NPC that was going to kill me if he saw me (

I OOC'd for help, and a local DE (Thank you Cixot!) dragged it out and up the ramp to the foreign quarter.

The thing that I really don't get is that this Ogre claims to be a Craknek. He said "Dat is da way der Crakneks do" or words to that effect. He absolutely said he was a Craknek.


I con warmly to everyone in Oggokk except Greenbloods.

Including the Craknek guild master.

To me, this is something that needs addressing. How can you have a branch of a guild that is KOS to you when the leader of said guild is one of your "friends"?

If I'd been killed by a Troll in that building, it wouldn't have mattered; you could explain that as the Trolls being protective of their guild house or whatever; but I don't see the reason for an Ogre Craknek (the Ogre's own words) KOSing me for no good reason.

After that, my faction standing with the merchies went up from "dubious" to "apprehensive" (this is after I got killed, but BEFORE I delivered the meat).

The factions of these Ogres looks a bit bugged to me :)

After all this, I very tentatively (and conning everything...doors, rocks, went to deliver the meat.

To add insult to injury, all I got was 1gp, a tiny bit of XP and bit of faction.

Was that worth running from Oggokk and losing XP from that (from my point of view) unwarranted death?

I have had no luck in even talking to a GM, let alone seeing if anything can be done.

If you are a GM and agree that this is a little off, I'm on Mithaniel Marr (cos a GM submitting a bug report might carry more weight than a player)..and a Grobb Cleaver would be (jk).

Yoos all hav da safe joorneys )

No its not .. :-) It's just that you are a shaman. That ogre HATES shamans. I did it myself when I was young ... same effect. Dead ogre meat in an eye blink. You best stay out of that room. You cannot raise faction with that kiler. So live with it. :-))

Who are the Crakneks????
# Oct 01 2000 at 9:16 PM Rating: Default
Hey, i was in neriak foreign quarter, and i found these guys. Who are they? Are they real warriors that can train you? I was hoping they are cause the Dark Elves dn't like me too much, and they won't train me, so i was hoping these guys might. Anyone want to help me out?
RE: Who are the Crakneks????
# Dec 02 2000 at 6:31 AM Rating: Default
Craknek is Ogre Warrior faction. However,the Ogres you seen weren't with Craknek faction. Their faction is Neriak Ogre,raised by doing the Pickled Froglok quest. Not an important faction.

They,as far as I can remember,don't train Ogre Warriors. They are just THERE. I can't really remember,but it's too late for me to find out because I barshed Inky guards. ;)

No Neriak faction is really important for Ogres,unless you just need another place to bank. Kill enough Dark elf guards and you will be able to bank in Kelethin anyway,granted you can click on the Banker from outside because you can't fit in the hut. ::laughs::

Craknek and Clurg faction are needed to do the Stein of Moggok quest. Clurg is the leader of the Bouncers,the guards marching around Oggok and the Feerrott.
Remember that for the next time you're in Oggok and see an Enchanter with a group of people killing Bouncers.

And they say us Ogres are the most stupid race in Norrath..... ;)

The dwarf (forget his name) at the NPC camp in Dagnor's cauldron also increases the Craknek faction
CB Belts
# Sep 24 2000 at 3:28 AM Rating: Default
one warning, thouhg i have heard epople use CB belts as a way to raiese faction with kaladim and Kelethin without getting KOS in Neraik (so they don't have to kill orcs) this will lower your faction with these guys, big time.
RE: CB Belts
# Oct 03 2000 at 3:12 PM Rating: Default
I play a Dark Elf enchanter on the Tribunal server, and turned in many of the CB belts in Kaladim when I was lvl 7 or 8 without knowing what the Craknek warriors. After finding out, I thought it was too late. But after returning to the Ogre warrior guild in Oggok, Guntrik, who is the leader of the Craknek warriors looks at me apprehensively. Might have lowered it (have no idea what he conned to me before I did the CB belt quest), but It would take hundreds of these belts to actually make then kos to you. My advice is stop now if you want faction with these guys, but don't worry too much if you killed a few, or maybe even a 100 or so (like me). =)
