This quest begins at Chief Kalan in Cobalt Scar (location -330, -1218 on the beach just north by northwest of the druid portal).

It is available at apprehensive faction.

You say, 'Hail, Chief Kalan'

Chief Kalan nods respectfully and says 'Welcome to Siren Bay, strange one. These beaches belong to my people, the Othmir. You are welcome in our villages as long as you do not cause trouble and are willing to either assist the shellfish collectors provide nourishment or aid the warriors defending the beaches.'

You say, 'I will aid the warriors'

Chief Kalan says 'There are many creatures that would prey on my people if it were not for the dedication of our warriors. The Bulthar and Ulthork often invade our territory and prey on our shellfish collectors. They are wasteful creatures and take more than they could possibly eat from the sacred seas.'

You say, 'What ulthork?'

Chief Kalan says 'The Ulthork are walrus people. They are just as territorial and brutish as the Bulthar but are slightly more intelligent. They seem to be jealous of my peoples prosperity and occasionally lead raiding parties onto our beaches. Our craftsman use the tusks of the slain Ulthork to carve ivory totems of praise to the ocean lord. I will gladly barter for no less than four Ulthork tusks.'

Upon handing in the tusks:

Chief Kalan says 'I will barter for no less than four pairs of Ulthork tusks.'
Chief Kalan says 'I will barter for no less than four pairs of Ulthork tusks.'
Chief Kalan says 'I will barter for no less than four pairs of Ulthork tusks.'
Chief Kalan says 'Many thanks to you strange one. Our craftsman will be pleased, they have been in need of a new bundle of ivory.'

Your faction standing with Othmir got better.
Your faction standing with Ulthork got worse.
You gain experience!!

For your efforts, you'll receive a random gem or trinket.

My turn in

I have only turned in one set and got a fire emerald ring. But you don't have to go through all the dialogue. I just hailed the chief and handed in my 4 tusks and it worked.
34 druid?

Could a 34 druid do the quest even if the page up there says you have to be 50 to do it?

When I hit 34 with my druid and got my AoE spell...lightning blast right? Anyways, I went to the North Shore of EW and quaded Ulthork hunters. Once I gained a few more levels I could quad the warriors without spending all my mana. I leveled very quickly all the way to 43 or 44...plus I saved up bags of the tusks and turned them in for some real nice profits. So I am not sure why it says level 50, maybe just because where you turn them in is a little nasty. I would recommend EW for any quad kiting druids for both loot and exp!!!

Breast Plate Gems?

Has anyone gotten a pristine emerald from this quest? I have been told many times you can get the breastplate gems from this quest but no one has listed getting any here. So... has anyone gotten one? Post about it? Now?...

I have done this quest about 35 times. I have not received a pristine emerald. I have received Blue diamonds, diamonds, jacinths, black sapphires, and various pieces of jewlery worth 100pp to 150pp.
Ulthork tusks

Ulthork tusks seem to drop a little more frequently off the man o wars that spawn on the south beach. They're higher level than the other ulthorks are... blue to a 51 druid.

# Apr 04 2002 at 6:33 PM Rating: Default
What level do i have to be to take the ulthorks? I couldnt solo them because im a warrior, but do you think a group of peeps all around lvl 40 could take these ulthorks? Thanks!

I've been arrow and spell kiting these since 41st level and I am now a 45th level Ranger. I would snare them, dot them and then do careless lightning until they were under 50% when I was 41st level. Even then I would have 1 to 2 yellow bubbles left. It was long time to heal up and mana up. I had an armor class around 800 and around 800 mana. I'll let you be the judge when you can solo them. At 44th level I could take two out without resting. BTW the Codain at the huts will not help you.

If you want the tusks you could try the just to solo the hunters. They drop them but at a slower rate. But I found there are usually a magic user type around that would love to have a tank as a partner. If you could team up with a healer or a wizard, at your level the two of you should be able to hold your own.

BTW if you just want quick money without saving up for the tusks, just camp the Orc by the IC bridge, or with a low level 40th group you can take on the giants and orcs by the prison. Just don't pull the Warden or the giant in the bldg. the Warden spawn because when I snared the Warden successfully, 3 other Frost Giants Spawned with him and clobbered me.

But rest of the camp can be pulled one at a time using harmony or similar spells.

i quad these all the time :) in the past 5 hours i got 1.5 lvl's with kei, and they are weak, only hitting for a max of 67 on me so far (thats with me self buffed with sod)

they are just as easy as the wolfs and cugars in ic plus they drop better lewts, and to top it all off with one quad i get 1.5 blue taks me about an hour to lvl and when i am done with a lvl i got around 67-70pp from what they droped in pp and gp, not including the items.

i have killed about 125 of these and i only got the tusks to drop 5 times,and the walrus tooth to drop like 25-30 times, too bad its lore nice lowb weapon

I think you might be talking of the Man o war Ulthorks in the south... the ones on the North East beaches are blue to a 37 druid... prolly farily green to a 54 druid. I have gotten 2 levels so far here... They can definitely be a hard kite if you aren't careful... Walruses add and hit pretty hard themselves

2 Fire Emerald Rings
1 <something> Ruby Crown
1 Crystallized Sulphur

I petitioned about the sulphur, figuring the quest was bugged. The GM said he'd post for someone to check the 'loot table' for the quest, but it was probably intentional, and that the rewards were 'almost completely random.' He implied that there are some booby prizes on the list.

Good luck to the rest of you.

# Sep 10 2002 at 12:36 PM Rating: Decent
Aye, I killed ultorks for a couple hours and got my four tusks. Got a guildie druid to port me to CS cause he had some to turn in as well. He turned them in first and got a ruby crown (180pp in think). Then I turned them in and got crystalized sulfur too. Man was I really mad. I thought it was my faction (I had amiable, druid was ally) or my poor charisma (45). I guess I got the booby prize. (

Not only did I get good exp from killing Ulthorks got some nice jewellery to go with it. This is a worthwhile quest for lvls 30 - 40.
Faction and CHA doesnt matter much
# Feb 28 2002 at 4:37 PM Rating: Excellent
Faction and CHA doesn't matter much in this quest;
Amiable faction and 90 CHA. Turned in 20 tusks (5 sets) and got 1 BD, 1 diamond, 2 sapphire neclace and a star ruby earring.

Happy :)

I handed in the 4 tusks and got a diamond for my troubles. The zone is dangerous but navigable for a 40 druid.
CS Easy to get to
# Jan 20 2002 at 3:09 AM Rating: Decent
Cobalt Scar is easy to get to just get a port...there is a portal there and no key is needed any longer since SoL went live. Just pay a druid for port and you're there...sure you can go thru a couple zones and get there but the port is the simpliest.

Getting There
# Jan 18 2002 at 1:55 PM Rating: Default
Ok, how hard is it to get to CS if ya can't gate in there? Never been to Skyshrine so I understand ya need a Key..Hard to get? Aslo, what about all the problems running thru Kael? Only killed abut 3 giant in GD and no dragons as of yet. Will I be KOS to 1 or all of the Giant Factions in Kael and what about faction in Skyshrine?

Quest seems cool, but getting to CS could be major work.

ok getting there by port is the easiest. and yes you need Skyshine faction if you want to go the long way. its the same faction as CoV so kill thousands of Frost giants. Ive been killing them since 40 and now only apprehensive, Better killing FG's in kael for CoV faction to go up..:)

why is min lvl 50
# Jan 05 2002 at 1:15 PM Rating: Good
I am seeing from a lot of the post that below below 50 are doing this quest, I take it that a lvl 39 or higher can do this quest. just wondering
RE: why is min lvl 50
# Jan 06 2002 at 6:57 AM Rating: Decent
Uthorks can be easily quaded by a level 34 druid. They are level 32-36. The tusks are rare though.
RE: why is min lvl 50
# Jan 19 2002 at 7:45 AM Rating: Default
Go to Cobalt Scar and see if anything there can be easily quadded by a level 34 druid.

You don't qaud them in CS, you quad the hunters and warriors in EW. I solo them with my Wiz at 40 all the time. I've seen and destroyed several because I didn't know what they were for.

The Lvl 50 min is likely from the days when you couldn't port in without a key. Now that anyone can get a port, invis and Sow, it's much easier.

Tusks and faction
# Dec 27 2001 at 12:34 PM Rating: Decent
I'm allied to the Othmir. I turned in 40 tusks the other day and received the following:

2 fire emerald earrings
1 sapphire necklace
1 ruby crown
1 jacinth
1 diamond
4 blue diamonds

This is in line with what other people of lesser faction are getting, so I'm pretty well convinced faction has nothing to do with it.
