Dar Forager Lumun may be found at -2080, +200.

You say, 'Hail, Dar Forager Lumun'

Dar Forager Lumun says 'Nice to meet you, Trublue! Please have a look at my wares, I have taken great pains to brings only the best that the swamps have to offer. Or perhaps you are here to make an [exchange]?'

You say, 'I am here to make an exchange'

Dar Forager Lumun says 'I am always in need of more skins, so I will swap three identical unruined pelts for one of my higher quality versions.'

Hand him three unstacked wolf/cat/bear skins of lower-than-high quality.

Dar Forager Lumun says 'Not a bad find, but I will need more.'
Dar Forager Lumun says 'Not a bad find, but I will need more.'
Dar Forager Lumun says 'Hmm. . . That seems like a fair trade. Let me see what I've got in my satchel. No. Wait, yes! I do have a fine specimen here that I think you'll agree is of superior quality.'
You gain experience!!

You receive a single skin of the same type that is one step up in quality: three low quality skins/pelts gets you a medium quality skin/pelt, and three medium quality skins/pelts gets you a high quality skin/pelt.

This quest can only be done by non-Frogloks if they have Illusion Guktan cast on them. Assuming that you are non-KoS, any other race receives the response (example for Human):

Dar Forager Lumun says 'Hmm... There is something about Humans I don't exactly trust...'

Handing in stacks

You can hand these pelts in stacks (even as a froglok) but be WARNED.

Make sure the stack is a multiple of 3 (since that's what he asks for). Anything over will be 'discarded' and you will get pelts back but only up to the correct multiple 3.

Example. I give in 20 MQ pelts. I only get 6 back (6x3 = 18) and I do not get the 2 'leftover' MQ pelts back at all.

confirm that non froggies are screwed for this =/.

I can confirm that this is right
[]Found him in a tent near pottery merchants/wheel. Loc was neg 2081.67 pos 201.24, neg 4.32.

Conned indifferent and didn't respond to the quest text. When I handed him the LQ cat pelts he gace them back, saying "Hmmm... there's something about you I don't exactly trust...". I am pretty sure I did this quest successfully in Gukta so either my faction has changed or his has.
Made a froggie and swapped pelts thru shared bank. Quest worked perfectly[/][/]

I killed that 1st fragment of igok froglet and am now amible but still dont trust me i also tried the collector Reokar npc where ya turn in the bone chips and the npc where ya turn in the spider eyes and each gives me the line of i dont trust you
(if your a frog you only need indiff faction)

I was doing this quest regularly in Gunthak. I have done multiples of the Dar Collectors quest and am maximum ally with the Dar Forager, but he no longer likes me. Frogloks don't agro, but I cannot do any quests. A newby Froglok (created for that purpose) can make the turn ins, however. It appears that they no longer trust non-Frogloks. At least not my Wood Elf.
New Location
# Aug 14 2005 at 5:25 PM Rating: Decent
OK Since the frogs moved to Rathe does anyone know the new location of this guy?

Hey thanks for the reply and the glimmer of hope. I have used my druid and not been able to track anything but Dar Guardsmen.

Should you find the location it would be greatly appreciated!

Will check out exact loc but i found him using track. However when i tried to do this quest he looked at me suspiciously or something and wouldn't let me. I conned indifferent so not sure if maybe need some certain faction now to do this or not.
Update... Though Obvious...

I did try to upgrade my Cougarskins, no luck. Wishful thinking, but as posted previous, Bear, Cat, & Wolf only it seems.

Oct 17 2004 - I just did this successfully. Turned 3 LQ bear *SKINS* into 1 MQ bear skin, and similarly with MQ bear skins and cat pelts.

He spawned closer to the zone to innothule at about 3 PM and walked to the area in front of the soulbinder.

The improved quality skins went directly into my inventory, not into my hand. So maybe some of the reports that this isn't working might be from persons who didn't notice their count of the higher quality skins/pelts wnet up.

And oh yeah, of course, don't stack the pelts/skins in the trade window. *doh*.

spawned (walked up to his spot) at 2pm game time, located next to soulbinder.
In Two Places At Once

Don't be fooled into following Lumun around Innothule Swamp thinking that while he's there he won't be in Gukta. He can be in both places at once.

If he's up in Innothule, ignore him. Try Gukta, as he may have spawned there and only there can you hail him or do the hand ins.

For anyone who is thinking that it may be possible to trade medium quality lion skins for high quality lion skins, let me save you some time. I made a froglok specifically for this purpose and tried it giving Dar forager Lumun 3 medium quality lion skins. It did not work and he gave them back. Just to make sure I had done it right, I immeadiately gave hime 3 medium quality cat pelts and he gave me a high quality cat pelt.

I waited for him starting at 10pm. He spawned at 6am. It would seem that he does not have a fixed spawn time....

gads. he is a tough frog to catch it seems. i was fishing in gukta with my ranger and noticed him on track so i camp her and log in da froggie...to my dismay he had popped out that fast Smiley: cry! so...i waited...and killed spiders...note to self: don't kill too many spiders or the trapped one comes out of nowhere and tries to eat you for dinner Smiley: oyvey. he came back after his trek through the swamp and i got him Smiley: clap. use the LQ for the leather padding...turn in the MQ. makes tailoring the 10% wr packs nicer Smiley: yippee
Rangers, Necros and Druids OH MY!

where or where has dar gone now!
# Jul 02 2003 at 7:38 AM Rating: Decent
How often does this go take off for his rounds cause i made 3 seperate trips to find him and he popped up on my track every time in the swamp killing newbie mobs. Let me tell it was very frustrating i thought i could follow him alittle bit and maybe he would go back to his spot shortly but no way,i even hailed him and he wouldnt even give me a nod..hehe Oh well if anyone could spread some light for me that would be helpful! Thanks. Smiley: banghead

Prices have come down since Velious... HQ Rockhopper hide + Backpack Pattern = Tailored Backpack... and trust me the HQ Rockhopper hides drop more often than HQ Bearskins.

Also he will not take MQ rockhopper hides and change them to HQ... he doesn't want them.

Dar Forager Lumun stands at loc +98 by +54. If you stand beside the soulbinder (Soulbinder Zlippi) and look in the same direction he's looking, you'll be staring right at Lumun.

At 6pm game time he left Gukta for his stroll in Innothule. He arrived back from his stroll at 2am the next morning. He may take strolls at other times, I don't know.

Don't forget to hand him the pelts UNstacked. If you just give him 3 stacked pelts he'll think you only gave him one.

On a side note:
An excellent way to get cat pelts is to go to Stonebrunt Mountains. The cats there can drop 2 or 3 pelts at a time, all are low, medium, or high quality. Never have I seen a ruined drop in Stonebrunt.

At this point in time, I'm not foolish enough to want to stalk this poor chap all over Gukta and Innothule Swamp so I'm not totally sure of his everyday schedule or if he has a set pattern of wandering in the swamp. It almost feels as though he comes and goes more than once each day. When he is in Gukta, I've always seen him near the soulbinder. Unlike others, I haven't given him any kinds of skins / pelts so I have no info pertaining to other questions in this quest.

At about 5:30 PM CST of August 3rd, I noticed he was gone but was able to right click on him right before he zoned out of Gukta and was therefore able to access his merchant window. Upon closing, I also zoned but it was like he disappeared. Around 12 hours later, at about 5:00 AM CST, I happened to see him slaying Kobolds like they were nothin in the vicinity of the stone hand in Innothule Swamp. I tried to follow but he moved very fast on land and in the water so unless you have means of faster movement, good luck in catching him in Innothule.

I tried this quest last night with MQ cat pelts. I am a Dark Elf Enchanter, and I tried this using High Elf, human, dwarf illusions etc. He conned indifferent to me, so I casted collaboration which brought him to amiable. He returned the pelts saying something about consorting with my despicable kind. =( So if anyone has any ideas =)

He won't trade with you as you worship an evil diety - he worships Mithaniel Marr.
Any illusion or charisma boon will not stop this religion clash, so you'll need to create a mule to do it.

For those of you who were wondering why he disappears so much: When he's in Gukta, he offers the quest. When he's not in Gukta, he's wandering in Innothule Swamp, but you can't do the quest with him there.

Loc, anyone
# Apr 11 2003 at 11:15 AM Rating: Decent
I gather that this guy despawns and respawns periodically, but does he always come up at the same loc? I've been checking off and on for him for a couple days by checking my ranger track (200) from near the soulbinder, with no luck.
Pelt Exchange.
# Mar 31 2003 at 7:50 PM Rating: Decent
Today I found him near the Soulbinder. I hailed him and he responded by saying he was always in need of more skin. He will exchange three identical unruined pelts for one higher quality pelt. I think he may change his statemant as he respawns. I will check this out more to see if this happens.
Spawn time
# Mar 30 2003 at 12:37 PM Rating: Decent
He has a 30 minute spawn time from the time someone buys either the eggs or the mushrooms he is selling.
