Gurks are typically a nonaggressive ape like creature found throughout Lok. They are not overly social, do not deathblow. They can be harvested for Leathery hide, Herbivore meat, and Animal bones. Gurk Lairs typically can be found on mission terminals for 8k to 9k per mission. They yield a very good rate of XP and considering their failure to deathblow make them a popular grinding creature for many players looking to level with minimum risk. They rarely apply states, but when they do it is usually a stun or a dizzy. One noteable exception to the nonagressive, no deathblow rule is Feral Gurks which will attack without provocation and do deathblow if given the chance. The variations of gurk are gurk, gurk gatherer, gurk tracker, feral gurk, crazed gurk destroyer, shaggy gurk, gurk whelp and Gurk King.
Spawns at a hut at -3762 -3467 and at 725 -3391. It is a 30 minute re-spawn and the King does not re-spawn every time. But you don't have to bother with that. Get some Gurk missions from the terminals and make some money. Every 10th lair or so will give you a Reclusive Gurk King with his bodyguard once you kill the lair ... excellent source for Reclusive Gurk King Hides, which you can use for RIS Armor.
