Talk to Horgus and he will tell you that he wants you to bring him lizard tails. He will give you rawhide armor pieces (usually wristbands, though large patchwork tunic has been reported) for doing so.

You say, 'Hail, Horgus'
Horgus says, 'What!? You [Craknek] or you [pest]?'
You say, 'I am craknek'
Horgus says, 'Good. Me not bash you. You help Horgus and Crakneks. Go smash lizards. Bring four tails. Greenbloods think they get all lizard tails. We take first. Taste good. You bring four tails. Me give you tings. Me gives armur. Now go!'

You say, 'Hail, Horgus'
Horgus says, 'What!? You [Craknek] or you [pest]?'
You say, 'I am pest'
Horgus says, 'Bah! You go join Greenbloods. You weak.'

If you do this quest enough will it lower your faction so much that you are KoS to the greenbloods? And if so will being KoS to the greenbloods make travel in and out of Ogguk a problem? Like for instance will I encounter any greenbloods on the way to the bank or are they all tucked away in their little greenblood room their. Thanks for any info you can give!

What drop lizard tails cause the broodlings, mystics, scouts, and foragers I have killed have only ever dropped lizard meat.

Ok, I am a human SK and have found that it sucks bein me... :) also i think this is about the only way to increase faction with Oggook so i'm not kos. my question is does anyone think or know if i am kos to the person you turn the tails or meat into? and where are the nobles?

I would say it's almost guaranteed that you are KOS to the Ogre Warriors. You could try conning the Ogre guards (Bouncers) outside Oggok, though they are a different faction, just to get an idea how you will be received.

The nobles are located in Innothule Swamp, and spawn randomly in front of Guk. Killing them will destroy your faction with many Humans, Elves, Dwarves, and Erudites. Killing Bunk Odon (a dwarf who spawns in front of Guk) will raise your faction with Craknek Warriors, as will (reportedly - I've never done it) killing the Dwarven Smith in Crushbone.
Got enough tails now !

Gave them three more noble crests and a few lizard tails, and now the crakneks really like me. Btw, the reward for the crest quest is allways a BRONZE two handed hammer - nice money !
Handed in lot of meat as well, got 30 or more rusty two-handed axes, and they like me even more - I could do the gatorsmaul quest now, but I'm just level 16. Unfortunately Clurk and his cook still hate me.
I have (had) the same problem

I am turning in tails on masse as well, to do all those other nice quests the Crakneks have to offer. Was nice from level 10 on, the lizards are good solo experience, but at level 16 now they dont give me much anymore. I can get more tails faster now though.
I am not sure how often I did it, maybe 50 times now, and no killing, but I finally got them to neutral. No change in quests available at that point. After a few more tails, I am able to talk to more of them, and I can do the noble crest quest - had one allready and killed another noble. Still cannot do the lizard meat quest or any of the others for Clurk or the cook, but it wont be much longer I think.
Just keep on handing in those lizard tails, and dont sell the meat like - I have 8 full stacks of that right now. Should give a nice extra faction boost once you can hand those in.

Thanks a lot for the info. I had given up on the quest for awhile but now I'll go back to it since it sounds like I don't have much further to go. That's too bad to hear though that you can't turn in the Lizard Meat at indifferent - I was counting on that to push me up to amiable.
How many times do I have to complete this quest?

I have a Troll Shaman who is currently dubious to the Craknek Warriors. I'm trying to raise my faction so that I can complete the Gatorsmash Maul quest. This lizard tails quest is the only one that I am able to do within the Ogre warrior guild.

Can anybody tell me (1) how many tails I need to turn in to raise my faction to indifferent and (2) what faction I need to complete the lizard meat and noble's crest quests. I'd guess I've already done the tails quest 30-35 times (plus killed Bunk Odun a couple times) and I'm still dubious. This is a slow quest because the tails don't drop that often and don't stack :-(

Somewun asked how make clurg happy without make greenbloods mad. Yoo take tails to Grevak in Greenblood guild. Him you make greenbloods and Clurg happy, also get armur or shield at random.

maybe i was just unlucky as usual but i just did this quest three times and got patchwork every time. quite useless at lvl 9 and cash wise i would get atleast as much from just selling the tails. half a blue bub of xp each go at lvl 9 though which is quite ok.
Raw-Hide Armor for level 10?

You need to be level 10-12 to kill the lizard warriors and mystics these drop off of (the ones outside Cazic-Thule)... if you don't already have a full suit of leather and a few pieces greater the lizards will kick your ***. This is still a good source of cash (sell the armor) as long as you don't mind losing the Greenblood faction.
Druid Trying to increase Faction wil Clurg
# Oct 18 2000 at 9:10 AM Rating: Default
I Tried this quest in order to increase my faction with Clurg (he is indifferent already but it didn't work) But Horgus killed me even with indifferent con...

I was in Wolf Form - AND Invis - and he still killed me fast..

Oh Yes, at 331 dmg a punch- Horgues kills u before u know he is mad...

Is there a safer way i can increase faction with Clurg Without doing the lizard tail quest with Horgus?

Any druids out there have this exp?

Anytime you con something when invis (as long as they dont see through the invis) you will always get an indifferent con.

Also in my experience mobs are randomly given the ability to see through an invis. I was invis and the con was ready to attack. Re-apply the invis and still ready to attack. Mob next to him (same type) was indifferent.

Con often and dont think that just because the normal mob cant see invis doesnt mean that they all cant.

Your problem was not coning Horgus when you were just in wolf form and NOT invis.
Go into the warrior guild in wolf form and invised target Horgus, get out of the warrior guild to a safe place like near the bank, drop invis and recon him.
He was threating to me ( i am a 37 wood elf druid) so I did not go into the warrier guild after that.
The lizard tail quest in the greenblood shadownight guild with Grevek worked for me raising faction with Clurg in wolf form of course!
