Seems to follow a very similar set of PHs as Quillmane, was hoping for the pegasus and came across Cracktusk instead. Probably left off hunters as it has no real loot, just quest stuff.

Ive just finished sk hunter and there a few mobs that arent on hunter and i hope they dont add them as some were pretty rare. cracktusk is kos even to my ranger ive prob seen like 3 or 4 times total. during hunter i saw quil 30 times most common of all hunter mobs by far.
Not on hunter achievement?

I admit I have not seen him in a while while hunting in the zone, not sure if he was removed or not. I am surprised he was not on hunter achievement list when I completed it. The entire time I was doing the achievement, I did not see him once. I have killed him a lot in the days of old though.
It is lame that he or Groi are not on hunter achievement, but the lame named Gnolls are.
If the devs went back and later added some stupid named in Unrest, which I had to return to re-complete that zone's hunter, this named should have been added to SK as well.
still spawns

I went afk and was singing my heal song at lev 21 to make breakfast and when I came back he had killed me lol. I was in KFC city up top just chilling. So his roaming range at least is near there. That is all.
Cracktusk and the Gigantic Cracked Tusk
# Sep 27 2004 at 8:59 AM Rating: Decent
I dusted off my druid and played him a bit this past week and weekend. I took him to South Karana because that's a great place to re-familiarize yourself with druid techniques. Anyway, although I've played EQ since late spring, 1999 - and spent thousands of hours in SK - I had never seen Cracktusk, the SK bull elephant - until Saturday. But there he was on track. I chased him down and found that the stories are true: he moves fast and has a huge aggro radius.

Anyway, I killed him and he dropped the mysterious Gigantic Cracked Tusk, a container with two slots for tiny items and a Combine button. To be best of my knowledge, no one has ever discovered what this container is for. Is that still correct? Anyone know what quest this might be part of?
# Jul 12 2004 at 8:11 AM Rating: Decent
Lets think now... the tusk... lets stop and think Here is 4 possibiltys..

1) It is part of some special quest.. Some quest that has never been done before. I'm guessing Qeynos would be the starting point since it is right near the Karana's. Or nexus.

2) Since it is a container and a finger slot, ever try putting it on your finger and using it like a backpack while its on your finger? (i have not tried this before and i may stand corrected.) It could be almost like an extra invintory space.

3) If it does have a quest, i would believe it would have something to do with other mobs. You would have to hail a mob somewhere in norrath.

Also, have you ever tried hailing named mobs all around in SK? Who knows, this quest may include Hailing Gnawfang or Grizzy. Ever try hailing an escaped gnoll? A putrid skeleton? (i saw one other posts that putrid skeletons have weird faction. one time nicely 1 hately, hail the the one that doesnt KoS to you?) Another named elefant anywhere on norrath? One of the high shaman's? Mroon? Broon? Proon? Droon? wandering treant?
Anyway im going to try hailing everything i see that isnt KoS in SK.

4) It has no purpose... it is just plain junk.. And "combine" is there just to fool you. Just something you either sell to a merchent or destroy. Try gnawfang's tooth (another rare mob in SK). It has no purpose as of now (I MAY stand corrected).

Does this guy spawn anymore? Of all the time I've spent in SK I've never seen him. Is there a trigger for his spawn and where exactly does he spawn?
RE: Spawn?

I killed him today 28 Nov 04. I was trying to get quillmane to spawn and got him to pop so it MAY have something to do with that, I was killing lower lvl greens on the 78 sec spawn cycle and he popped right at 78 sec.

Still exists as of 5/13/2004, Killed him today, but still don't know what the Chipped Tusk is for
container is for...
# Sep 05 2002 at 11:40 PM Rating: Decent
rogue i heard to combine a couple of reagents.
thats all the guy told me after i sold the container to him for 350pp (prolly coulda gotten a lot more). i bet it needs to be handed into someone after combining the items.

I have read the post's and see that most of them date back to the YEAR! 2000. It is really anyoying to know that you have no clue to what this tusk is for. I got one the weekend of the GM event 5/17/2002. I have looked High and low and come up with the same thing. PLEASE JUST ONE SIMPLE CLUE WILL DO!!!

I know the bull elephants drop teeth for a shammy quest but anyone with the container tried these?
put rings in it
# Apr 02 2002 at 7:21 PM Rating: Default
Is it a container and a finger slot? if so has anyone tried putting rings in it and putting it on finger?
# Mar 27 2002 at 7:12 PM Rating: Default

Giant Cracked Tusk
# Mar 05 2002 at 3:11 AM Rating: Default
That crazy elephant tried to trample me today, so I had to put it down. I got the ring version of the Giant Cracked Tusk. It's 10 wt. finger slot, LOL. I don't know what it could be for, but you can sell it to a vender that likes you for about 10pp, the same as a mammoth tusk.

Watch, I'll end up selling it and a week later the quest will pop up...

Killed him today, 2-1-02, with my 26 Cleric. Dark Blue, had the help of my partner, a 27 Ranger. Dropped this tusk. no one in SK or the guild Wyrmkinde knew what it was for. and after looking here, it seems it is worthless unless you need 2 and this container tusk....which would seem like an odd quest unless it gave some sort of weapon...

Just my 2 cp.

Killed Cracktusk last night dropped Words of Evermore and tusk container. Any ideas about what to do with this would be greatly appreciated.

# Sep 19 2001 at 5:19 AM Rating: Default

Any info on where this guy spawns and how to make him spawn would be great!!
RE: ??
# Aug 12 2002 at 11:38 AM Rating: Decent
Most rares seem to be spawned by killing escaped splitpaw gnolls. I read a post under Quillmane earlier tried it out went out kill all escaped splitpaws, the named shamans, brother drash etc. You would not believe how many names popped. Quillmane Cracktusk Grizzleknot all kept popping up regularly. Coincidence? Dunno. But personally I dont think it was coincidence.
RE: ??
# Sep 03 2001 at 5:00 PM Rating: Default
Heh, did you post this message under every rare in SK? Keep in mind there are something like a dozen rares in SK, along with who knows how many placeholders -- getting a specific rare to spawn would be very difficult if not impossible.
giant cracked tusk

I am thinking that the giant cracked tusk may need gems or enchanted gems. probably makes a ring or earing.
