Drop on progression servers

This drops from the rare spawn

a fat alligator

in Innothule Swamp.

The Alligator Skin item can be acquired on progression servers. There's nothing in data that prevents the item from dropping or the NPC that drops it from spawning.
However, it is an extremely rare drop from a fairly rare spawn: "a fat alligator" in Innothule.

Has anyone seen this drop recently? Btw, Hide or Prestine or Spines will not work. It has to be "Alligator Skin". Someone reported that it has a green snake skin icon. I've killed at least 150 gators and not seen one drop.
Same as Alligator Hide?

I've two of the Alligator Hide's sitting in my bank - They look like Blackened Teir'Dal.
The following is the Magelo link

Is this the same item as Alligator Skin, but with a new name?

Lotsa alligators in swamp. mostly along zone walls, near GUK and FEEROT entrances. and me know of secret allagator island.... wanna know where? I had 5 alligators on me and one on the way....

LOC:[ 1370,208,21 ]

small island. somewhat dangerous because of Kobald hunters and froglock foragers. but as far as gators go, this is the place to be.

Don't Give Up

Ok, after camping in the Innothule Swamp for 3 days i have some things to say. First don't give up. From my exp the Bull Alligators are a random spawn and it has nothing to do with place holders. I have read many posts about ppl killing various things in the zone to get them to pop, I found none of them to work. I killed just about every thing i could and it did not seem to have any effect. They seem to pop when ever they feel like it. I had to kill approx. 80 Bull Alligators before I got my skin. So while it may seem that it is unfair and may even be broken, its just a very rare drop. Don't Give up, you will get it eventually. )

Nevermind...I see it's used for a halfling quest...I just missed it the first time. Disregard this post.
what lvl
# Aug 25 2001 at 2:56 AM Rating: Default
ok i dont knwo what lvl everyone is when they hunt for this thing but i am tempted to think it is lvl related. when my halflind druid was only 12 i went to the swamp to hunt bull gators for the skin i hung arouond the tower and thats where i had the est luck. i killed roughly 8 or so. i ended up getting 3 alligators skins 2 off of bull gators and 1 from fat allgator. i think the gatros were either even or blue to me at the time. hope this helps anyone.

I found one (same person)

After 3 long tired days of searching I finally found one. I submitted data to the webmaster so it might go up soon or maybe not, im not sure how busy he is. For all you dying for advice on getting this here is what you do.

Kill Giant Water Moccasins.
Of course, Kill Bull alligators.
Hang around the undead tower searching for bull alligators and Giant water moccasins. I heard about Fat alligators, but I never actually seen one (surprising for how long I was there). I went up top of the undead tower countless times after hearing about the bug where they get stuck, but I have never actually seen anything stuck up there, just some skeletons. Your search will take a long time unless you are very lucky. You probably wont have much help by auctioning either, but might as well try if you got stuff to spare like money. 100 pp is a good price to buy this for, but I personally wouldn't sell one unless I had a second, which I then would sell it for that much. There isnt really any other advice to give except don't listen to all those rumors, like people saying they are at vendors. The ONLY exception to this would probably be if someone were dumb enough to sell it to a vendor, im sure it doesn't sell well, though I haven't tried. That is the only way a vendor might have it, but you can depend on that as you much as you can depend on someone giving it to you for free. Well good luck and good hunting, don't kill swamp alligators and if you see fat alligators (whatever they are) you might as well kill em anyways cause they might be taking up the bull alligator spot on the spawn table. The bull alligators seem to spawn in groups of 2-5, and only every 2-10 hours, so I wouldn't search too long if you already killed 3 or 4. Good luck and good hunting.

I spent about three hours near The Hand. I basically ran a circle around it... always staying with 100 feet of the hand. I focused on killing any mob that spawned in that area... frogloks, kobolds, rats, snakes. The bull alligator will spawn near there (in the water) and track right near the hand (on land). I believe I killed about 30 Bull Alligators and 2 Fat Alligators in that 3 hour period and never saw the skin.

At one point, I had a friendly druid stop by to help out. He tracked one when it popped and it's pathing took it straight to the land around the Hand.

I don't doubt that there are bull alligators that spawn and track elsewhere. But, stick near the Hand. I actually saw a few Spawn in the water North of the Hand right after killing the Kobold Hunters. There is a small island between the Hand and the Undead tower. The water between the Hand and that island seemed to be the most likely spawn location, but they still tracked toward the hand, so I could just wait until they hit dry land and kill them there.

As for as the price on this thing... Well, I'd pay 300pp for it. But I'd offer 100pp. My logic is that anyone that has the skin either found it by accident or was hunting it for hours. Those that were hunting it for hours probably wouldn't sell it for any amount of money. And, those people that found it by accident are probably just low level characters hunting in the zone for experience. Those people would feel like they hit the jackpot by selling it to us for 100pp when they were going to sell it to the vendor for 4gp.

The result of the Leatherfoot Raiders quest is basically a one shot, insta-cast, uninterruptable Gate spell. This is VERY nice for Rogues. On the rogue epic, you have to loot a book from Hate. After you loot that book, chances are that you'll get aggro (unless you were lucky enough to go up to Hate with a full-scale raid party). And when you get aggro, you're gonna want to Gate ASAP. This quest offers a low-cost alternative to paying 1100-1300pp for a Gate Potion. But, the more time I spend in that damn swamp looking for that gator skin, the more I realize that buying that Gate potion might not be a bad idea.

I've managed to get 1-3 bull alligators to spawn every 10-15 minutes by keeping all the Giant Water Moccasins down - don't know about this 2-10 hours business. I've noticed a few of the gators spawn at the giant hand with the troll vendor, but just killing Giant Water Moccasins doesn't seem to be the only key to getting them to spawn as some will spawn for no reason and other times none will spawn. I'm missing something somewhere.
BTW, no skin yet... Got a tooth tho - WTFs that for?

one of my pc's whacked 44 bull gators over a weeks time, not one of these hides dropped. may be a broken quest
RE: gatorskin?

After 120 or so gators, and 5 ogre arms among other detritus, I am happy to announce that the gator skin is still in the game, and that my Halfling Warrior is finally advancing beyond the Wall Squad. Woohoo! The icon for the gator skin looks like the giant snake skin icon.

# Mar 23 2001 at 8:02 AM Rating: Decent
This quest is not broken. After many many gators my trollie warrior has come up with two gator skins. Sold the first very cheap (didn't know what I had). The second went for considerably more and I haven't been able to loot another.

Looted mine from a Bull Alligator on Lanys today. Killed 30 or so to get it, over a number of visits to Innothule.
