DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Speak with Apprentice Dunan in Ludlow Village, loc=46623,45423 Black Mtns South.

Do you know of Gundron McCory? He and the Black Mountain Blades attacked me just two days ago while I was traveling from Snowdonia Station and stole one of my unfinished works. You see, I create charms with certain properties from time to time as part of my apprenticeship. This one was to be fashioned from a rare bear tooth.

Those damnable Black Mountain Blades have truly done their part in messing up this realm. McCory's done a lot of bad things lately, what with harassing everyone in the southern Black Mountains, but to me this was the worst! I would shed no tear should he meet a ghastly fate!

If the foul bandit were to meet his death in an untimely manner, I would complete the charm and pass it to you.

Search the area around Ludlow for the Black Mountain Blades leader, Gundron McCory, and get Apprentice Dunan's bear tooth from him. Be warned -- McCory is rarely alone!

The bartenders give you the rumor of this quest at level 9. Gundron is up on the mountain next to the river north of Ludlow. You can see the boar painting on the hillside across the river from the top of the mountain. When you get there, Gundron may be in the camp with a couple of other npcs that will be orange or perhaps red to you at level 9. Just be patient if that's the case though; Gundron eventually makes a patrol of the bandit camp perimeter (accompanied by 1 or 2 bandits that will most likely be gray or low green to a level 9). Reward is a STR+4 neck piece.

Did this one as a Level 13 Paladin solo - No problem. Gundron and Bedelia were green, and Althous (sp?) was blue. Everything else up there wa gray. Bedelia is a caster though, so be wary of that. After getting the Beartooth Charm, though, I found that my Blessed Pendant that I got from my Traveler's Way quest was a better item, so I stuck the Beartooth Charm in my vault for later donation to a deserving newbie...

Yeah, nice charm, but they should make it a finger item. Sucks for paladins who get a neck item for trainer quest, silver chain, then another neck item? The str would be useful. At this level I have really no rings, Sliths tail is pretty useless compared to 4str. Anyways, I complain too much. Have a nice day!
Good Quest

I did this quest with my lvl 10 scout.. Gundron cons blue, and his friend was con green and gray. I knew i proly could not kill both Gundron and the green but i tried anyway almost killed Gundron before i was slane. Went back up there and Gundron had only half his health still left I was able to take him out with arrows and then melee the green. The neckless is nice +4 str. Its a good quest and I will proly do it with all my low lvls

Well, after doing a bug report to a CSR, i feel a little dumb ...
The effect IS +3 STR, but at lvl 12 i had a STR-bonus cap, so i had to remove my other magic items to see that it gives +3 STR...
its just too much stuff on me, so i cant use the extra bonus anymore...

Don't throw it out. The str-bonus cap increases with level. You ought to see the effect in a couple levels.

I finished this quest last night, and the necklace gives me no Str +, shift-I shows it should, I tried repairing it, tried fighting some then repairing it still no + to STR.

where to find him
# Nov 11 2001 at 2:20 AM Rating: Default
if you still looking, hes on the high ridge next to the stream, dont go in blindly though, its usualy crawling with mobs
RE: where to find him
# Nov 13 2001 at 7:41 PM Rating: Decent
I know a lot of people are having trouble finding him. I did as well. He is NOT at the camp northeast of ludlow. He is directly NORTH of ludlow at the top of the mountain with the river on the other side. There are actually 3 quest NPC's up there and with the help of a nice merc, I was able to complete two quests tonight.
Cutpurses, not Poachers - but no Gundron?

The hills next to Ludlow make a U shape (with Ludlow at the opening of the U) - there are cutpurses and young cutpurses all over the hills, but after wandering them for a long time I still never saw Gundron or this bandit wizard somebody was talking about. Is the camp where he spawns the one with the little crate at one end, on the arm of the U closer to Camelot Hills?

Go north up the hill from Ludlow. Gundron spawns regularly near the wooden boxes.

I was given this quest at lvl 17. The whole hill was grey, but still received the reward. Be careful on top of the hill, there is a powerful wizard bandit there that can knock you out quickly. Locate and target Gundron and wait for him to walk to the hillside closest to Ludlow and you should only pull his two friends with him.

Go NE of Ludlow. It is up at the top of the hill to the left as you approach the young cutpurses.

Where is the hill? I couldn't find poacher camp in South Black Mnt.
