- - Lake Rathe
- - - Only someone that has handed Lord Bergurgle's Crown to Shmendrik can loot the Damaged Goblin Crown from the spirit of flame.
- - - Once you hand the Damaged Goblin Crown to Natasha you will have to hand a new Lord Bergurgle's Crown to Shmendrik to loot the Damaged Goblin Crown again.

- - - Most of the time Natasha cannot be attacked. She can only be fought when she engages with Shmendrik.
- - - Shmendrik cannot be attacked until someone hands him Lord Bergurgle's Crown.

Someone at Verant had a sense of humor when they named this character. Shmendrick is one several Yiddish words meaning a fool.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?
Safe way to do this Cleric Epic Part...

[Agnarr TLP server] Just done it so I'm sharing...

For all you insecure Clerics (like me) who are scared to do the Bergurgle turn-in because of KSers (someone who kills your fire elemental and loots it) and hi-jackers (someone who turns in their own damaged crown to Natasha instead of you - thus wasting your Bergurgle crown). Note Shmendrik is a 3 hours respawn.

Without any quest item, you can straight up kill Shmendrik Lavawalker and it'll spawn the same Spirit of Flames. There is no faction hit for killing Shmendrik or Spirit.

(You can do this part even before having Bergurgle's crown)
1 - Kill Shmendrik Lavawalker.
2 - 1 second later, Spirit of Flames spawns where Shmendrik was; kill it.
3 - Loot damaged crown from Spirit of Flames.

(This part you need Bergurgle's crown for... So taking for granted that you killed Bergurgle and have Bergurgle's crown at this point.)
4 - Give Bergurgle's crown to Shmendrik Lavawalker. Natasha spawns instantly in the cabin and will start casting buffs on herself.
5 - 0,5 second after giving Berg crown to Shmendrik, you can run in the cabin, give her the damaged crown (you got earlier from killing Spirit of Flame). You received Ornate Seashell and you're done.
Spirit of Flame does NOT spawn when you do it this quickly, so there is no fighting here.

Steps 4-5 take exactly 3 seconds tops, it is unlikely anyone could hi-jack your Natasha. You can do it by yourself. If you can see invisible to double-check that no one in invis and waiting for you to spawn Natasha, all the better (I'm paranoid).

When hailing him at level 33, he replies "I'm waiting for someone important ..." then at level 34 he starts replying properly, which allows to start the Cleric epic 1.0 at that level.
Cant Find him any Were!!!

After reading everyones post about Natasha getting the KS on the spirit of flame and after camping Lord Bergurgle for 2 days, I decided to go ahead and kill Lavawalker to get the spirit of flame to spawn. Both were easy to kill with level 53 Cleric, although Lavawalker heals himself pretty regularly. After killing Lavawalker, the spirit of flame spawn and was dead in like 1 minute tops. He has no special attacks, and runs at like 10%. Just root and kill... I looted the damaged goblin crown and headed back to continue my camp on Lord Bergurgle. To my suprise, killing Lavawalker first seemed to have spawn him. Not sure if the two are connected, but just seems really weird I had camped that spot for 2 days and no spawn and as soon as I killed Lavawalker, not even 10 minutes later (I swim very slow) he spawned. /Shrug... Good Luck to all who pursue this epic... I know it's been a pain in my butt so far, but sure it's well worth it...

I also updated a new picture of this guy... And the location of him seems to be correct. If you don't know how to use /loc, come in from the Rathe Mtn's and swim to the second island at the top of the map (it's up a hill) and hes standing there looking over the water.

Just one location correction from info isn't the 2nd "island" out from rathe mtns zone...its the second open cove area along the north shoreline of the lake from rathe mtns zone.

After killing at the tower for over an hour and no Begurgle, went and killed Shmendrik first.
AS SOON as I returned to the tower, Begurgle was next pop.
Now, just gotta wait the 3 hours for Shmendrik to re-pop. : (
Better than wastin' several days or hours tho.
Easy enough

After reading through everyone's comments about this guy I decided to kill him first to start the epic. Was very easy for 49clr, 51wiz, and 55bst. Took two days to get Bergurgle's crown, and he was up as soon as I got it. Turned crown in to him, let Natasha kill him, and the spirit, gave her the damaged crown that I looted the day before. I highly recommend that anyone starting the cleric epic start it this way. Keeps you from having to do the Bergurgle quest twice.

Read This Before you Turn in Burgurgle's Crown
# Jun 05 2004 at 1:50 PM Rating: Decent
OK hear is a valuable lession I learned (the long way): When you turn in Lord Burgurgle's Crown to Lavawalker, be prepared to have another person distact (possably mez) Natasha AFTER she kills Lavawalker. IF SHE GETS THE KILL FOR THE FLAME WHICH SPAWNS, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LOOT THE CROWN. So be ready for the Flame spawn and make sure you get the kill!

I don't see how Natasha getting the kill shot on the flame has anything to do with affecting looting rights to Shmendy. I have helped with the crown turn-ins before and whoever was present always took an active role in killing both Shmendy and the Spirit. Nothing was locked out and nothing poofed.

Natasha is your ally on this quest, not an unrelated KS'ing NPC.

If a (non-charmed) mob gets the killing hit on another mob, the dead mob will poof. Just because the lore of the quest says Natasha is your "ally" in this mission doesn't change the rules of the game any.
Run down for this mofo.

It would be worthwhile to add... either way, you still have to camp Bergurgle and get his version of the crown. What Raithier is pointing out is that you can do the part with Natasha with less risk of her KS'ing you... The drawback to the safer meathod is that you have to wait for this guy to spawn after you kill him the first time.
spawn time
# Sep 17 2002 at 1:36 PM Rating: Decent
the information in walbort cleric epic may be a little wrong about the spawn time of this mob. He was spawned within 1 hour after i killed the lord for the crown, this may have been due to a previous kill, so you may want to camp the spawn spot after killing the lord so you don't miss his spawn. Otherwise i have found the cleric epic info to be correct so far
RE: spawn time
# Sep 24 2002 at 3:19 PM Rating: Decent
Shmendrik spawns 2.5-3 hours after he's killed by any means. Had to wait around one and a half hours after I killed him myself.

i took this guy down in about 3 nukes with a pet, but spirit got me, if you got to water with spirit, will he despawn?
RE: despawn
# Sep 03 2002 at 4:38 AM Rating: Decent
The spirit will follow you into the water and won't despawn. The spirit was hitting me for 97 max, but was hitting frequently. I took it on the chin and just looted the priest corpse then FD to shake the spirit aggro.
I managed to get 3 mends in while FD before the spirit de-spawned, thats about 15-18 mins real time.

Killed him as optional kill
# Apr 22 2002 at 5:40 PM Rating: Decent
I was wandering around Lake Rathetear when I noticed this guy was up. I've heard horror stories where Natasha will KS you upon turning in the crown, so I decided to kill him and loot the damaged crown and avoid having to possibly camp Begurgle twice.

Before the battle I buffed up, medded to full, then attacked. Enstill nuke, nuke, nuke, worked great. He went down and the flame spirit popped in his place. I sat down, medded back to full and engaged the flame spirit. I was able to make him run away with 10% life when I ran oom. I sat down and medded, waiting for him to regenerate enough HP's to come back and fight. Two more nukes and he was done.

The second time I logged in he was up. He went down easy along with the flame spirit. I rooted Natasha so she wouldn't kill him then cast atone to turn in crown to her. I've heard but am not sure if it's ok to let her kill him or not. Has anyone tried it that way and if do does the spirit still spawn after she is credited with killing Shmendrik?

P.S. Do NOT let Shmendrik or the spirit touch water! They will despawn if either one reaches the water.

nope epic NPCs are not 50... actually there isnt a single lvl 50 mob ya gotta kill as a cleric to get the epic... there's lord B something here in Lake rathe and theres this guy (which ya are not supposed to kill (natasha does that for ya) then a lvl 40 spirit that pops (notice 40 not 50 =)
then ya gotta kill some lvl 55 Zordiak and then a lvl 54 Zordiakus or something (dragon) and then a 1337 uber thing from Chardok (there might be some more go check it in the Walkthru)
hope this helped...

Ok, I dont know if you have EVER done this epic, but you dont have any clue about it if you think that you dont have to kill any mobs over 50's to get it. After you kill the mob in solro temple to get bloody plasmatic priest robe, you have to turn it in to omat in TD which spawns natasha. You give her Lord Gimblox's ring and she gives you a shell to turn into mob in BW to spawn Ixiblat Fir (level 62 and hits in 500's). After this you need to obtain a singed scroll from Overking Balthezid in Chardok (level 65 and surrounded by 50ish guards). Finally, after you take pieces back to TD and get piece to turn into the zordak in SolB to get box for pearlescent shards, you eventually will have to Spawn Zordak Ragefire in SF and kill him which will spawn Zordakulis Ragefire (also over level 60...I think he was 61). This quest is NOT just a walk in the park killing sub 60 mobs and if you are saying that all the mobs are 50ish, you have never done it.
