YAAAAY pickles!
# Mar 27 2005 at 12:42 AM Rating: Decent
yeah, but, the way i heard it is that when someone drops something, the NPC picks it up and you have only a little time to get it back... it would be in their storage and probably some dude dropped a FBSS and 50 plat.. or.. second explanation... he was a jerk and tried to kill newbies witha trick.. ;d
just my 2cp
Dropped loot
# Feb 17 2005 at 3:56 PM Rating: Decent
Since day one, the first guide ever written on Everquest, and every since then. If you drop something near an npc they may pick it up, it has always been that way and always will. What I wanna know is why did all you people drop stuff on the ground to begin with?

And the guy telling us he got 50pp and a FBSS from this ogre is just trying to get you all to try to kill it and die like he prolly did, as mentioned in several other posts, merchants poof upon dieing. no loot, no 50pp, no fbss, no corpse , nothing .

When a merchant dies you do not get loot their corpse just dissapears that guy was just a liar.
Boomba attack gone Wrong!!!
# Feb 16 2005 at 5:36 PM Rating: Decent
Heh all i know is i was in a group there once and I saw some one hit him from my group and all the gaurds went running after him... then all of a sudden like a flock of hungry pigeons to food the gaurds came running at me and slaughtered me. So I say ... DONT ATTACK HIM!!!!!! =p
# Feb 16 2005 at 11:32 AM Rating: Decent
Merchant bodies disappear when killed. No exp, no loot, just faction hits

Boomba is making his glorious return in EQ2. Of course not the original one but one of his descendants. He's still selling pickles too.
RE: EQ2 Boomba
# Feb 15 2005 at 3:10 PM Rating: Decent
Heh yeah I noticed him. I was like "WTF? How could an Ogre live 500 years?" and when I spoke to him he says he is from a long-line of Boombas selling pickles at this very spot for over 500 years. He said that he's named his daughter Boomba and when he dies, she will take his place.

if im correct he says "Hi, im boomba, and i sell pickels. If you want to talk find a tier'dal".... though if i remember he doesnt actually sell pickels......
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 25 2004 at 5:11 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) killed this fat ***** today, guildie was out here killing ping (WTFRU AL KABOR GM!!!!!) and tried to harmony guards so i could pull him but didnt quite work cause they still added. ended up staying by the gate so i figured since i broke him i have to finish the job. sent in pet, nuked with char, died before guards even realized he was missing.

Looks can kill they say, well if that applys to looking at and iksar monk the wrong way i guess =) i swear this guy was staring at me so i put his head under my hammer and beat it to a pile of ogre flesh.
Why kill him?
# Jul 11 2003 at 2:14 AM Rating: Default
he stole my freaking water flask. stole a few other things I dropped on the ground and didnt know NPCs would take. sure I was just a newbie, but this dude is rude. his prices are too high anyway. why kill him? because I hate him (and hes a big ugly ogre).

anyway, its all about who pissed you off most when you were a newbie. I still want to kill guard tolus for stealing all my kills, then slacking off when I was trained by orcs.
Faction Hits and No Loot
# Dec 12 2001 at 1:08 PM Rating: Default
This is to confirm that Boomba drops no loot and has a lot of negative faction hits.
Coalition of Tradefolk got worse
Knights of Truth got worse
Merchants of Qeynos got worse
Coalition of Tradefolk III got worse

I found that his pricing was somewhat low compared to the human merchants in Freeport, so I usually sold my beatle eyes elsewhere.
hes not that level!
# Aug 19 2001 at 2:50 AM Rating: Default
he couldn't possibly be that level..hes yelllow to my 18 monk. :) also, him ruins your faction, and him being a vender, you get no exp or loot... dob't drop anything near him either..he'll take it.
RE: hes not that level!
# Nov 26 2001 at 6:39 PM Rating: Default

Boomba's lvl
# Jul 24 2001 at 8:03 PM Rating: Default
I have a lvl 19 shadow knight on Ayone ro and Boomba is blue to me so he has to be lower than that.
How to kill him
# May 21 2001 at 6:55 PM Rating: Default
First attack him and zone to ec. Come back and he will be standing a bit infront of the gate and then you can kill him without the guards having aggro on you. He doesnt drop anything though and has no exp. He is lvl 20.
# May 16 2001 at 7:54 PM Rating: Default
this level is sooooo wrong! i killed him at level 24, he was blue
# Apr 22 2001 at 12:33 AM Rating: Default
ok im a L30 rangr and i snared him and was mobbed by all surounding guards boomba himself max hits for 41. i wouldnt recommend killing him unless nearby guards are mezzed/harmonized or your high enough lvl that u can run away from them if you get into trouble
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 12 2001 at 8:36 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I am a human War and killed Boomba with Guard Jascen staring it me the whole time and no Fraction loss but he did drop 50pp and an FBSS.
RE: Good loot
# Oct 01 2001 at 8:24 PM Rating: Default
yea he prolly dropped it cuz some moron dropped it in front of him and he picked it up, so you killed him and got the loot
RE: Good loot
# Dec 26 2001 at 5:41 AM Rating: Default
That's ********* Merchant bodies disappear when killed.

Also, this guy is no where near level 45, 20 tops.
# Mar 07 2001 at 5:50 PM Rating: Default
what faction does he belong to? i got the gaurds in FP to like me, but the merchantlslike this guy won't
lvl of boomba
# Feb 13 2001 at 3:51 PM Rating: Default
ok u guys.... i narrowed it down and i know Boomba the Big's real lvl... when i was on lvl 19.. i conned him and he conned yellow.. when i was on lvl 20... he conned black... i guess he's around lvl 19-21 since no one really kills him....
Green to 34
# Jan 24 2001 at 2:41 AM Rating: Default
He con's green to me, a 34th season Druid. He's conned green for several levels now. Not that I would ever attack him.

you dont want to drop things you intend on keeping around him. If you drop stuff around him he will say "Me find sumting. goodie!!: and poof! whatever you dropped will be gone, I suppose killing him is the only way to get it back. I asked a guide about this. He said all NPCs are like this.. which is of course ******** but whatever. Just thought you might like to know. And in response to someone else's post about why you would possibly want to kill him... my answer is why not? He is mortal, therefore, at the mercy of bored druids with too much mana and time on their hands. I have seen the cart with no Boomba by it many times.. :) He hollers something like "Me not a weakling!! Me bash you good!!"

Just my 2cp worth
