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.

Reward based on charisma, faction? NO!

I've killed a fair number of ulthork or walrus in my day. Some for exp, some when I decided I wanted myself an ulthork tunic. So, eventually the day came that I went to cobalt scar, and found the Othmir to be amiable to me. Oh happy day.

But, not much later I discovered where crustacean armor came from. My twink had an itch, and that crusty armor definetly scratched it. Killed over 60 othmir warriors to land myself a nice pile of plat and a full suit of crusty for my alt. Then, while foraging in the wakening lands, I discover a quest that takes an item I foraged there and results in a nice resist necklace. Drat, it involves the othmir and they are now threatening to me! Well, I head to east wastes and start layin' the smack down on the ulthork. Eventually, I'm 8 tusks richer, and dubious to the othmir.

Just to see, I hand in the two sets of tusks. With a charisma of 77, and a faction of about as low as it could possibly be but not be KoS, I recieved as a reward: one ruby, and one blue diamond. The former being mildly good, the latter being arguably the best possible result.

Not a lot of comprehensive research, but proof enough for me that it is simply random and not faction or charisma based.

P.S. I also received a message about being on watch duty and not having time to converse on hail, but the keywords further on still worked. My guess is that /this/ is based on the dubious faction but I cannot be sure.

He never said he sold it. You can right click on a merchant and click on a BD to see what it sells for. If he did sell it it was his mistake. But I doubt he did.

Hey i am a 35enchanter and i have been killing ulthorks since lvl 31. I have over 40tusks right now and am about to turn them in with warm faction. I will let you all know how it goes and hopefully i will get some BD so i can finally purchase those gebs. i have 194charisma and will see if that plays any part in the quest.

# Nov 19 2001 at 9:59 PM Rating: Default
a friend of mine got a diamond the other day by using MY tusks that i had earned, oh well he twinks me so i guess he can take em. but anyway the point is u can still get diamonds at least, dunno bout blue diamonds
# Nov 22 2001 at 7:04 AM Rating: Default
My 39 druid turned in 8 tusks last night... And the reward was 1 blue diamond & 1 regular diamonds. Looks like you still get them.
does this still work ?
# Nov 18 2001 at 4:26 AM Rating: Default
ive heard that a new patch released has destroyed the possibility of getting a 'rare' gem such as a blue diamond or diamond. does anyone know if this is true or not ?

i might make a chanter to turn these in cause of the saying that cha helps well is the exp good enough to were I shouldnt waste exp on him

Been saving tusks to turn in, i am lvl 45, not so much interested in loot at the moment, says miniume lvl for quest is 50, wondering how is experience for turning in tusks, may be easy way out of hell, any1 remember how exp was for completing quest?
RE: Decent exp?
# Mar 12 2002 at 10:00 PM Rating: Default
quest says 50 cuz the guy who reportrd it was stupid. anyone who can get some tusks (30+) can do this as long as they can get to the othmir place in CS. as with most quests like this, little exp can be expected. (nice try, there isnt an easy way out of hell) lewt is purdy phat tho.

charisma and/or faction important ? more data to judge it
# Oct 18 2001 at 8:55 AM Rating: Decent
With charisma of only 79 and faction kindly, I got 2 diamonds, 1 ruby, 1 crystalized sulfur and 2 jewels from 6 x 4 tusks.

Next 4 tusks I was warmly, still 79 of charisma and got again a diamond.

next 12 tusks, still warmly, still 79 CHA, 2 black sapphire, 1 ruby crow, and I am now an ally.
High charisma

I'm a necro on drinal, first time I went I only had around 156 charisma, gave the 4 tusks and got a diamond, went back today, had 16 tusks, 186 charisma, got 3 blue diamonds and a fire emerald ring, i'm indifferent to the othmir, i'd say charisma may be a factor, i'm going back tomorrow with more, i'll tell you the outcome

Just thought I'd try this quest to see if I could make some pp or get some gems I'll need for other quests. I conned amiable and had 5 sets of tusks.
Here's what I got:
2 Crystalized Sulfur
1 Diamond
1 Jacinth
1 Saphire Necklace

Depending upon Charisma and faction that adds up to about 425pp and nothing I immediately am aware of for use in another quest. Oh, and it took me multiple days to get that many tusks so beware if you think this is the pot at the end of the rainbow.
3 sets of tusks
# Sep 08 2001 at 1:58 AM Rating: Decent
1st ever trip to cs. 12 tusks as an ally to othmir with faction.

1 diamond
1 black sapphire
1 black apphire necklace - which sold to merchant for about 165pp - as an ally to that merchant also -
RE: 3 sets of tusks
# Sep 20 2001 at 6:32 PM Rating: Decent
SO How Does one raise Facton if that is a helping influence on what you recieve for your tusks. Also which drop more tusks? Hunters? Warriors? and if I understood correctly walruses sometimes drop them also?
# Aug 21 2001 at 1:40 AM Rating: Excellent
On turning in 24 tusks I recieved 3 Diamonds 2 Black Saphires and a low gem dont remember what it was only Jindly to Chief.
5 sets turned in and...

I turned in 5 sets of tusks. I conned "kindly". I received the following:

2 rubies
1 sapphire necklace
1 jacinth earring
1 ruby crown

Total recd. from vendor 542pp. 8((

I don't know if I was just unlucky but I feel I wasted way too much time collecting these tusks... but good luck too others.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 22 2001 at 6:34 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I was doing my shawl quest and in getting the meat I needed I got 1 tusk if I had known then what I know now I would have never sold it to a vender=) Well I'm off to kill them ugly things some more, Oh yeah I don't mind Dr00ds Quading but if you Quad through my pet/fear path and your mobs stop expect me to kill them and I don't care if it is KSing is the only way to save my life other than FD than I lose time having to make a new pet and med again. Dr00ds are only good for one thing *whistles for a TAXI!!!*
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 06 2001 at 1:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hmm, taxi only huh? I play a druid primary. Most of the things we can do, another class can do better. But I can't think of a class that can do as much as we do... Wizards can't heal, shammy's can't port, clerics can't sow or port...
Nobody can do it all?

Actually, mr. Druid, Shammys CAN heal, port, SoW, and damage shield (given Alchemy, hehe), and frankly I've NEVER looked for a druid for any buff other than SoW - though I do find group regen/chloro nice (it saves me mana from casting on myself and others - but obviously a bard/chanter could do the same ....). I've had evac's cause me more trouble than good (if you can't handle it, don't go there) - during our last CoM reaver raid, a druid groupleader evac'd out during a fight for no apparent reason, then disbanded and logged, stranding his whole group. Thanks for nothing. This IS off topic, but you quad-kiting ninnies deserve a little beatdown every now and then, hehe.

- actually, I do appreciate Wolfform with my rogue - it's fun to RP a doggie <pees on your leg>
.... but again, my SK friend HATES wolfform because he can't slam with it.

Wow i like this.. given that i am a lvl 52 druid.. and i find people asking me all the time for stuff.. such as ports.. i get groups because i can get the nice warriors out of some dungons and we help with the healing to take all the lode off clarics... where i have been grouped with many shammys when all they do is buff once at the start of a fight and don't get up for at least 40 min... not saying i don't like shammys but i think one with the nerve to post some thing like this way off topic needs a little light.
and no i did not like your comment =)

#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 03 2001 at 4:53 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I agree with the second post. Sure we druids cant tank but we can kite like a ****. Do u want sow? Who is the first person u think of? DRUIDS Do u want a buff? Druids again. Are u in a dragon raid when things get ugly? Hey Druids can get you out in a hurry. And what about that damage shield that saved your life? Druids. To say druids are only good for a taxi service is a dumb and dangerous statement. Guess we wont sow u when u are getting thrashed by some monster.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 01 2001 at 11:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Your so full of $hit man...druids are the people in raids that are responsible for evacuating the group in case things go sour. Heal your dumb ***, give u damage shields (which can and will determine if u survive and get the experience or run like a coward). Sowing u so u dont get scrapped by monsters, buffing you (ex: strength, skin, regen). And the well known teleporting yo happy a$$ to wherever you want. Druids dont specialize in just one area...but there isn't anything that they cannot do!
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 06 2001 at 3:22 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hmm a shaman can sow a cleric can buff a wiz can evac a mage has better DS sheilds a shaman can also chloro im not saying druids suck but im saying there are classes that can do the same thing if not better so do'nt think you druids are just so damn special. POWER LVL ME DAMMIT! thats what a druids good for.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 04 2001 at 2:57 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Now don't take this the wrong way Druids, but someone does either the same job or better later on in the game. But that's just the thing, like bards are a jack of all trades, they don't do anything the best, but they do LOTS of things. Druids are great to pair up with. I'm a Paladin, my heal is as good as Druids until they hit 51, so if i group with them, I do the post fight healing, and he nukes/damage shield/regen/ buffs/sow(or wolf form)/whatever else they do. and when the **** hits the fan, I don't have to worry about it.

enough with the druid bashing ok, and from what i see it seems to be more jelous shamans bashing then anything else. maybe thats becouse all they do is buff then selfs and to hell with the rest of the group. but i will agree with you on one thing, druid and pally's make for one hell'uv a mess of bodies ( and not thier own either). we made one hell'uv a mess too in CC druid, 2 pally's and a iskar monk. there litterally was nothing there we couldnt kill, and all uv us were below lvl 40.

#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 09 2001 at 10:58 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hehe then you've met the bad shammys. And of course some of us will get alittle testy, main while we watch people quad kite while we have to take out singles or die and have 15 minutes downtimes. Comes from the jackass way we were set up ;)
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 02 2001 at 6:52 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) They can't tank...
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 27 2001 at 5:10 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Actualy druids CAN tank...sort of. Have the druid pull and cast snare (not ensnare, waste of mana). While pulling to group Dot and snare a few more times to build MASSIVE agro. Make sure druid dosen't get out of "melee" range (just far enough ahead to stay out of reach, close enough to keep his agro high). Druid keeps snareing (low mana, insane agro) while all the bashers take advantage of the free shots. Druid can med once the mob turns to flee. Result: druid meds a little and you have a bunch of melee types that don't need to heal. Works well with any non-caster mob.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 31 2001 at 6:23 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Maybe the halfling druidz :D
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 18 2001 at 8:45 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) eesh, speaking as a shaman, i get rather annoyed by pro druid people. i like them yeah but they arent all that. shaman gets sow before druids, we get buffs for every stat in the game, and all utility buffs too i might add. we can port and damage shield(via potions) yes druids and shaman get heals on par with each other but shaman gets regen spells at a faster rate. and as a barbarian i hate wolf form. no bash/slam. plus the whole kos thing with puppy form. OH YEAH and dont forget the pets=). we can tank better, better armour. all but one race of shamen has super stamina, so more HPs. ummm, better strength. err better dots(variety) mutiple DD types. haste, slows, weaken, resist debuffs, blind, gaze, summonfood/drink, summon zero weight bags, and group buffs. so plz plz plz do not over look the power and handiness of the shaman. you may regret it!muhahaha!
#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 16 2001 at 2:00 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ah, yes, very true...and when a mob does aggro on us we don't run around in circles screaming "Please, please, get it off me! It hurts!" like druids do. ;o)
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 27 2001 at 5:15 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) How many shammies do you know that cna Quad kite? I know of none. Druids are exp masters and all the other classes are upset by that well GET OVER IT
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 28 2001 at 3:01 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I know Bards can do more than quad kite. Sure, it takes a little longer but they never run out of mana. Oh, they can buff, heal, SoW, CC and more! About the only thing they can't do is port. =)
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 31 2001 at 6:24 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Druids can quad kite and thats fine.... but in higher lvl dungeons all they are gud for is evak and sucking up xp

it was my first time in EW at lvl 26. i had a 30cler and a 40druid w/ me so the best thing for us to hunt was ulthork. we went over and started killing them. i was there round 4hrs and i ended up w/ bout 10 tusks. lucky huh. well i asked the zone several times what they were for and i also asked what they sold for. no replies so i took them to the gnomes in IC and i sold em. boy do i feel dumb now. i got about 13pp selling them and i now realize that i could have got a gems selling for like 2k.o well u live u learn.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 18 2001 at 3:43 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I finally got 4 tusks from 2 days of killing Ulthorks. Went to CS turned them in with a faction of Kindly Considers and what did I get for all my hard work? Crystallized Sulfar!! Sells for just barely 1pp at a vendor! Im sure its used for something useful somewhere in the game but I was really hoping for a gem/item whatever that would bring my lil broke butt some money. Faction does NOT matter when it comes to getting a better reward! Not unless u think that what i got was good.

you aren't lucky, i got 2 in half an hour...
the tusks aren't common drop, but they are not rare...
you can have them from both hunter or warrior
How many Tusks?
# Jul 17 2001 at 12:50 PM Rating: Default
It says 4 pairs of Tusk. does that mean a total of 8, so stacks of 2. As you all may know those tusk don't drop very often anymore. so I would hate to waste them
