    Captain Pete is located at about -1500, 3415 on the island of Jardel's Hook in the Buried Sea.

    You say, 'Hail, Captain Pete'

    Captain Pete says 'Ah _____! I'd heard ye were on this island. Surprised I've heard of ye, eh? In my business it pays to be informed. Well, it used to anyways. Ye see ever since the [wreck] I've been a bit on the outs with people round here.'

    You say, 'What wreck?'

    Captain Pete says 'We was sailin over near the island called Maiden's Grave ye see. There be sirens on that island that got the better o' me and me crew. Most of the crew died when the Wretched Sands went down, but me and a few others managed to make it to shore. If'n ye thought the sirens were bad while ye were on a ship its nothing as to how bad they are if ye set foot on their island. I was the only one to make it offa there alive. And that's what got me inta me present problem. The way I sees it there be only one [thing] fer me to do.'

    You say, 'What thing?'

    Captain Pete says 'Well, there might be [two], but I figures I needs to bring the remains of me crew back to their families. If they see I care about me crew, might'n be possible fer me to assemble a new one. Problem is I ain't going back to that island unless I'm dead meself. This is where you come in, if'n ye catch me [drift].'

    You say, 'I catch your drift'

    Captain Pete says 'Good man! I'll be here when you find their remains. There's no telling what happened to their corpses so ye'll have to search most of the island more than likely. Best of luck to ye me hearty!'

    You have been assigned the task 'The Lost Crew'.

    Captain Pete would like to repair his reputation with the families of his lost crew. Search for the remains of his crew on Maiden's Grave and return any you find to him.

    Collect the remains of four sailors and return them to Captain Pete 0/4 (The Buried Sea)

    Sailor's Remains drop off cursed sailors, a cursed pirate and tortured sailors on the Eastern Beach, just south of the Shipwreck on the eastern shoreline. You can also sometimes find them roaming the nearby ridges above the tidal pools where the Sirens roam.

    Some remains are also ground spawns. Below are some map locations of the ground spawns. They look like 3 bones.

    FYI - disregard the older posts ... this quest is now "a loot item"

    - the stackable item "Sailor Remains" can now ONLY be looted from the following 2 mobs: "a cursed sailor" and "a tortured sailor"

    - the quest is bugged, and the number of "Sailor Remains" looted WILL NOT update in the Quest Window
    - you can hand them into Captain Pete ... the quest will complete, correctly

    a cursed sailor
    a tortured sailor
    - the 2 undead mobs can be found in 2-3 locations on the Eastern Beach, just south of the Shipwreck on the eastern shoreline
    - you can also sometimes find them roaming the nearby ridges above the tidal pools where the Sirens roam

    I've done this for several characters now, and I no longer bother with ground spawns.

    The eastern beach has the undead sailors, and right next to it is a beach with sirens. (I hear they have socials every Tuesday and Friday). If you are doing all the islands quests at the same time (and you should), just ping-pong between the 2 beaches. Shouldn't take too long to get 4 sailor remains and 4 locks of siren hair.

    As an aside, the siren comb drop is annoyingly infrequent. probably the longest part of this island.

    As of 7.21.2013 The ground spawn is broken as well as the looted version via the skellies. I have looted all 4 "no drop" remains and have gotten zero credit on the task. The drops via skellies are pretty rare too. The rest of the armor quest have worked properly. I sent a /bug, now to see if they fix the problem. I know this armor is quite popular because it is very good 70-80 and cost zero.

    I did this quest today on two toons. I didn't look for the ground spawn, I just killed the tortured sailors.. there doesn't seem to be many at one time and they didn't all drop the remains. You do not get an update when you loot them, but when you turn them in. The quest is working as of today.

    As a general rule, each "task set' (NPC) for the Joans series, offers the same progressive options for rewards.

    In this case, you should be offered:

    * Jonas Dagmire's Little Finger Proximal Phalanx
    * Jonas Dagmire's Long Finger Proximal Phalanx
    * Jonas Dagmire's Ring Finger Proximal Phalanx

    I've been running all over Maiden's Grave (got about 10 or so /Loc's pasted into my map) and haven't gotten a single ground-spawn. I have only looted one off of a Skelly (killed prolly 30 or so).

    Question: I was working the Jonas quest awhile back and gave up after camping Maleko FOREVER. I removed this quest by accident and just realized it (after hunting all of the above Skellies and running around looking for ground-spawns). Doe this quest need to be active to spawn the bones?

    With the quests active ... two of the ground spawns "went off" (there was an emote telling me to look for the bones - just like a typical triggered spawn) for me as I did the Mapping quest (one on one of the small islands, and the second near the "Gateway to the Sea"). I am glad I have taken everyone's advice here and gotten all the quests for each island before I went out to them - much more enjoyable and efficient.

    after searching for theses ground spawns I decided just to go and kill the skeletons. I killed 5 or so and got the 4 remains I need. Maybe it was just luck, but it was a lot faster the running around and not finding them on the ground.
    six other locations for bones
    # Feb 15 2009 at 1:23 PM Rating: Decent
    Here are six more coords where I was able to find bones
    (4763, 3925)
    (1710, 2633)
    (4098, 3250)
    (1691, 3044)
    (4565, 4108)
    (1824, 4315)
    These are in /loc coordinate system, swap the order and make them negative to get the numbers for pasting into your map file.

    There were two occasions where I'd pick up one set of remains, and there'd be another set in the same spot to be picked up again.

    For my main toon I was able to get these with 2 ground spawns from the given locs and 3 deaths of a cursed priate (was taking too long searching for ground spawns). My boxed toon got his from 1 death of cursed pirate, and 3 from ground spawns; however, they were differnt locs then the ones listed. I add them to my map and if the locs show up I will add the 3 new locs to this post.

    You do know these are in-game map file co-ordinates,
    not player co-ordinates you get with /loc, right?

    For example,
    I found some bones on the ground at (+4560,+4113), my map says
    P -4113.4272, -4560.5117, 463.1658, 0, 240, 240, 2, bones

    Took all the locations listed for bones listed in this section and pasted them into the EQ map file for the zone. I found most are not even on the islands land so beware. (errors)

    Found both undead and living mobs on the islands so unless you are a rogue expect to get agro sometime unless you are very careful. At level 72 (Mage) my air pet cannot solo the turtles but can solo the undead. Have not tried the sirens as they look grouped too close together for single pulls.

    A few undead and turtles can be single pulled. Again the Turtle damage to 71 air pet with Spire minon focus (~ 14K hit points) brought it to 50% very fast (10 - 30 seconds) with me healing ~ 2k a cast as fast as I can. So when it hit me and did the same level of damage I gated with pet at 15% health and 80 % mana left.

    Have not found a spawn time yet but belive it is over 20 minutes for the bone chips.

    I found this post has at least 4 good spawn points ...

    open buriedsea_1.txt from your EQ maps folder and paste these into buredsea_1.txt and then save the file

    These buggers are be small. If you got a shrink and duck while running around you will make them 5 times easier to see. They barely (and I mean BARELY) stick up out of the ground. They are easier to see if your facing north or south because they line up from east to west every time. Once you get the emote, stop and duck and look around. If they are not at one of the listed locations, check the others because they will respawn on at least 1 of the spots and tend to jump around...although I did get one to respawn in the same spot 3 times. I also saw 2 different spots up at the same time with a friend camping 1 spot and me running around checking the other ones. As soon as I looted one, another would spawn at the other locations.

    Know locations
    +3591, 3388 -- +3366, 3232 --> NE main island
    +4559, 4110 -- +4760, 3924 --> N teardrop island
    +4108, 3241 --> NE teardrop island
    +1530, 3184 -- +1691, +3047 -- +1711, +2631 -- +1985, +2707 --> SE teardrop island

    On a final note. This quest is collect 100 bones and finish it 25 times for faction hits and some xp if you want. Finding the bones should be easier now with most of the spots mapped out.
    I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you thought you heard was not what I meant.

    Dem Bones
    # Nov 29 2007 at 9:05 PM Rating: Decent
    Just killed a cursed pirate... Got some of dem bones.

    Don't know if it's more reliable to run around picking them up, or killing pirates. That was like the 7th or 8th pirate killed.

    There's definately atleast 5 ground spawn pts. More likely to be 10 to 12, but, so far I've only found 3 for sure, 2 more possibles.

    Good luck!
    Finding the bones
    # Oct 27 2007 at 4:49 PM Rating: Decent
    I marked the places on my map where I found the bones.

    Island southwest of main island.

    1 near the center of the island a little north.

    Main island North east on a cliff.

    1 on an island north of main island. North east.
