Baldur's Gate Wiki

Zhurlong is a thief who is found on the first floor of the The Burning Wizard in Beregost. He's missing some boots and has some very sticky fingers.

Sticky Fingers and Missing Boots[]

When addressed by Gorion's Ward or someone else in the party, Zhurlong's reaction to the party will determine if he only steals gold from them and then leaves the inn, or if he will tell them the story of his missing boots which were stolen by hobgoblins in the badlands – and then steal some coins.

  • 7 or below: "Hey, what's coming through that door over there..." (35gp)
  • Between 8 and 14: "Hey, isn't that Kelddath Ormlyr?" (25gp)
  • 15 and higher: "Oh, look! It's Drizzt Do'Urden!" (15gp)

In the latter two cases, the quest Zhurlong's Missing Boots is added to the journal.

Speaking again to him without the boots results in – "Hey... that's Thalantyr the Conjurer over there, isn't it?" – losing a further 30gp. Though he will give all those coins back when the boots are returned to him – as long as it wasn't more than 1,000,000gp.

If he's talked to after having been rewarded … well, he's a thief, you know? "What have you got in your pack today?" – seems to be at least 20 more gold …

    In the original Baldur's Gate, Zhurlong theoretically already is equipped with the Leather Armor he's wearing in the Enhanced Edition, but due to a mistake, his weapon, a Short Sword, is also assigned as his armor, leaving the real armor unused and undroppable.
