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...'

Hopper Hides

Tried to run hopper hides through him today 3/27/03 at about 1600 est. He didn't want them, tried every one but the HQ (had just made a pack out of my last one of those).

i have not found any LQ bear pelts but have found LQ MQ and HQ bear skins and these do not work. I have found LQ MQ and HQ cat pelts and these do work I just did the quest with 24 MQ cat pelts and got back 8 HQ cat pelts.
I tryed the quest LQ lion skins and it did not work. And hides do not work.Im still looking for a few wolf hides I cant remember if they are pelts or skins.

Funny, I just turned in 21 MQ Bear skins and got 7 HQ Bear Skins. Then I turned in 18 more LQ Bear Skins for 6 MQ Bear Skins which I then turned around and changed to 2 more HQ Bear Skins.

Funny part is, I think he's a timed spawn as he despawned on me at 12am Game time

Has anyone been sucessful in trading Medium Quality Pelts of ANY kind for High Quality Pelts yet? Besides the one example?

Or does this quest only work for frogs?

Just wondering what actually works. Plenty here about what doesn't work.

Quest working!

My frog warrior was able to trade him 3 MQ cat pelts for one HQ Friday 3-7-03. Also verified that 3 ruined cat did not yield a LQ, and ate 2 of the 3 pelts.
Pelt quest not working

My level 20 halfling ranger gave him 3 low quality bear pelts, but did not receive a pelt back. He would talk to me and give me the quest, but when I gave the pelts there was absolutely no response from him.

Did you leave the pelts stacked? I bet they have to be individually placed in the trade window?

More tests with trade ins
# Feb 17 2003 at 7:17 PM Rating: Decent
I tried this one a couple of days ago with low quality bear pelts and brute hides. He took them, but Neither worked - I suspect one of the following

1) Faction issues (I was indifferent, perhaps you need higher)

2) Maybey it only works with pelts found in the swamp outside

3) Its broken 'till the expansion comes out

Any info out there?

I have succesfuly turned low quality bear pelts into medium quality bear pelts on the night of the gm event so no it is not broken till the expansion goes live. You must have been using ruined pelts. And brute hides are just that; hides! The quest is meant for pelts only. And I suspect that means cat, wolf, and bear. I don't know of any other pelts that come in ruined lowq, medq, and highq versions.

So rockhopper might work as well then. I never hunted them, nor am I a tailor so I wasn't sure. However I am still willing to bet that if the pelt doesnt come in a minimum of low-med-high quality you will get nothing for your trade in.
RE: More tests with trade ins
# Feb 26 2003 at 1:12 AM Rating: Decent
Nope - definitely used low quality. That argues faction issues. Rockhopper definitely have qualities as described. The statement that the only 'pelts' are 'pelts' may indeed be true, but crafting recepies refer to pelts, hides and skins as semi-interchangable. Pelts have specifically been used for hides recepies and vice-versa. See eqtraders for more. Of those successful so far, what was your faction and race?

Where is this guy located? I wandered all around Gukta and could only find a Dar Collector... Anyone have loc or a point of reference? I though maybe he'd be with the tradeskill stuffs but I didn't see him.
RE: Loc?
# Feb 17 2003 at 7:11 PM Rating: Decent
Okay, it appears that he isn't up all the time. A druid friend tried to track him for me and couldn't find him in the zone at first, but the he popped up on her track list as we stood around chatting. He popped right near the soulbinder near the front of the zone, at loc p84 p51.

Upon hailing him is dialogue was:

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

You say, "What exchange?"

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

I tried this with both MQ cat pelts and MQ wolf skins, but got nothing back and no response from him. So I don't think the quest is fully implemented yet. =\

Sorry the trade in only works for NON-ruined pelts. So starting with low quality and up. Oh well ruined ones are still useless.
LQ Rockhopper hides?
# Feb 13 2003 at 5:22 AM Rating: Default
This is my latest chance to say something dumb and get flamed for it, but has anyone tried it? Yes, I know LQ rockhopper hides are from Luclin, but they seem to me to drop lots more than any other hide in the game. Can anyone at least TRY it? (I can't since I am in the Army, have been transferred to Korea and haven't gotten my household goods, to include computer, yet. Posting here is the only way to get my EQ fix.)

ok wasn't so dumb....I went and checked this out with my wifes druid this morning. As of right now it doesn't work. maybe when it goes live it might. used 6 lq hopper hides. Gave him 3 unstacked at one time and 3 one at a time, niether worked. Btw wolf form will get u killed in gukta.

Good luck, good hunting

# Feb 20 2003 at 12:50 AM Rating: Default
The quest does work Like I said before, it was working the night the zone was changed You are turning in hides! The NPC wants pelts. Bear, cat, and wolf only. Do you really think Verant is gonna make things that easy for you? Everyone would be running around with ralic pacs and stuff if that were the case!
RE: LQ Rockhopper hides?
# Feb 24 2003 at 12:59 PM Rating: Decent
The reason everyone is trying hides, pelts, skins, etc. is that when tailoring, they ALL work - it is just a naming inconsistency on the part of Verant. Many of the tailoring texts say skin when all of that type are actually named pelt and so on. So the assumption is that they should all work with this quest. I hope that's true - it would be very nice for budding tailors who need HQ pelts to raise their skill.
Pretty sure he says "better than ruined"

I don't think this works with ruined, I think he says "better than ruined" or "any but ruined."

Otherwise you'd buy out the billion ruined pelts eventually in game and soon have a bunch of high quality ones to sell.
Ah yep, "unruined"

Yeah he says "unruined"
RE: Pretty sure he says
# Feb 12 2003 at 6:36 PM Rating: Default
Yes, but you'd wind up with something like 1 / 32 the amount of ruined pelts you started with if you worked them all to HQ...
RE: Pretty sure he says
# Feb 12 2003 at 9:49 PM Rating: Default
nope 1 HQ for 27 Ruined.. if you could trade ruined ones for LQ but think that the original poster said that the quest npc text said something about that.

27 Ruined = 9 LQ
9 LQ = 3 MQ
3MQ = 1 HQ
