Getting Zed to spawn

I cleared the camp including names by fire and in tents. When Varien Sticklebush spawned, I would kill her and Zeb would spawn within the hour. It dropped today at 12am game time. Hope this helps!!

Ok so Varien Sticklebush is a PH for Zed Sticklebush?

I have camped poachers with almost all of my lower level characters. I love this area, XP is great, loot is not bad for the level, and nobody bothers you. During those grinds I have let 3 Burnoose rot. One night with my SK I got 2 of them in an hour and both rotted. I also collected this mask for 2 rogues that I have played through the years. I went back with my 85 bard this month and things didnt go so well.

I logged in a wiped the camp for hours at a time. I got Zed to spawn 5 times over the course of about 80 full clears. I collected heads and turned them in and killed enough poachers to be ally with the good guys. Even killed a dragon or two just because I was bored and the dire bear was on track. I went to Lower Guk to get the DE mask when i was bored and it dropped first time (took all of 20 minutes). I went to Traks to get the Iksar mask and the named popped in 10 minutes and dropped the mask. After 2 weeks of camping the Burnoose I gave up. The only upside is that I made 50k in the bazaar off of the looted items so I just bought a flayed Barbie mask instead (that camp can be insane long).

There is no method to spawning Zed like collecting named mobs in one tent or whatever. Any spot around the fire can spawn a named, and there is a 4th spot on the west side of the fire that has a much longer spawn time that is always a named mob. Named mobs spawned in every tent for me, in random locations. I would see anywhere from 0 to 3 named mobs spawn on a single clear. Yanrik is the most common spawn and he doesnt even drop a head for the faction turn in. The Sticklebushes are the rare spawns, and the other 2 named are somewhere in between.

Its pure luck of the draw at this camp.
Not Too Irritating

Didn't run into 1 person camping this clickie (on Povar at least). I spent around 12 hours camping the poachers in two different 6-hour sessions. He spawned 4 times before I got him to drop the Burnoose on the 5th time. They are 1-shot kills, so I just killed them all (campfire, and all three tents). It didn't irritate me THAT bad, I was boxing my 3 main toons and just had my Wiz sit there and nuke the camp when I was medding, etc.

It dropped, and had 8 minutes until the corpse de-spawned. I cast a quick Origin on my Bard, ran him from Crescent Reach, into Blightfire, to the PoK, took the Qeynos stone, ran up through Qeynos, through Surefall, and got to Jaggedpine. Made it to the corpse with 23 seconds to spare, PHEW! I am relieved, and happy. Already got the Mask of Deception, now I just have a few more illusions to go. Happy hunting, and good luck!

**Just to throw it out there, I don't think getting all the nameds under 1 tent and not killing them will speed up the process at all.

A little explanation to people seeking the Bard/Rogue Mask. There are 3 tents and a campfire. The named I have seen spawn in almost ever PH spot. So a easy way to 'prepare' for a guarenteed Zed spawn is this. First make sure no named are up, if they are up kill them UNLESS they are in the Right tent (This tent only holds 5 PH's). Do not kill anyone in the campfire,middle or left tent YET. There are four named we want to spawn in the Right tent. Zeds wife, another couple in armor and a ranger with a HUGE aggro radius. This process typically took me 2 hours to achieve. Notice there are 3 PH around the campfire. There is actually a secret 4th PH that only spawns once every 2 hours, but its a guarenteed Named! So once you have the right tent full of the 4 useless named feel free to kill the campfire, middle and left tents to your hearts content. I have seen Zed spawn in all 3 locations in addition to the 4th campfire slot every single time every 2 hours after you get all 4 named up in the right tent. I got the mask on the 8th Zed kill, kind of bad luck. But I hope this guide helped explain things a little better, it will certinaly give you a guarenteed strategy at getting a Zed every 2 hours at the bare minimum.

In terms of bad luck, I have spent nearly 45 hours in the past 3 days dedicated to killing Zed Sticklebush (currently lost count; 25+ consecutive kills) without seeing the Burnoose of the Halfbreed. That is BAD LUCK and at this point I want my 2 days back : (

I got this today with my druid for my bard and it wasn’t too bad.

Kill everything around the campfire each time, everything, including named.

If a named spawns in the tent, nuke everything else around it from a distance, but keep the named in the tent alive. Eventually I had all the named poachers up except Zed. Then Zed spawned and dropped the mask. This was the 2nd Zed kill. The first kill he had wandered off and ended up on the wall south of the camp, I only knew because I saw him on track. If you have track, check it and watch it, he can spawn from campfire and run off before you can see it.

Total time on this run, about 2 hours. I tried to do it on and off in short bursts but its not really worth it unless you can lock down named and force it. Much better camp than the Chardock camp which is the worse by far.

I heard if you illusion yourself with the same spell as your race, you switch genders. Is this true? Just wondering if so... would be cool, but otherwise, half-elf bard doesn't need to camp this boy. :)

Just my experience, I have done both clearing camps and leaving named up - leaving the named up actually takes away from your chances to spawn him as he has 6 different places he can spawn, however it's an odd timer - he spawns outside the tents beside the camp-fire for no reason, and not on the same timer as any PH - other times he spawns in any tent in the place-holder spot, no explanation just clear everything for me.
Use the named spawn logic.

I can confirm that it's best to leave up the other named. Since there is some logic to not have more than one of the same name up it makes sense. I camped my new rogue there and my lvl 45 shaman also used 54 monk on earlier attempts. I'd log rogue to see if conditions were right. I had 2 named at camp fire so I go to the river side of the big long tent and kill the first 3, door plus two by the poles. I'd say I could spawn Ned this way about 25% of the time on the next spawn 10 minutes later. Usually at right pole but sometimes at door.

I'd say I killed 14 Ned's before getting the burnoose from right pole spawn (insignificant IMHO)
Also, this guy is the only warrior in the camp, he bashes and kicks.

BTW shouldn't this be a head or back slot item? LOL

Also if you're having a hard time breaking the camp pull all the tents and spread them across the zone, animals will kill them and you can start a cycle. FD is nice so you don't have to zone.

Oh I'm on Al'Kabor Mac Server. The server where time stood still and the world is as it was in April 2003.

well it took me about 3 hours total, ok all i can say is this, the "leave the other 3 named up" method might have worked, or it might have been just plain luck.

ive popped Zed 5 times in 3 hrs. id recommend leave other 3 named up to pop Zed more. again this is not proved true, or is it?

Got one today!

I walked my rogue over to the Poacher camp today May 25 2007, after years of trying. You know, every once in awhile you remember about this drop, and if nothing else is happening, its a good way to waste some time.

When I got to the camp, I snuck around with my 58 Rogue, and noticed that Zed was up! He was in the big tent where the poachers stand at each pole and 2 at each of the openings.

I popped my Steadfast Servant, he conned green to me, but I didnt want to take any chances at all. It was an easy kill and I prayed to the EQ gods that he had the drop, and there it was!

Good luck to all those trying.

Had a hard time getting zed to pop... but finally... after a total of about 6hrs spread over a couple of days, and getting the other named mostly up... he was up after i returned from lunch, by the fire... apparently one of the roamers had gotten eaten and he had spawned from their demise.

Came back to camp for my Rogue. This time i just wiped out everything from start to finish. Camped for 7 hours and Zed spawned at the camp fire again. same spot as last post. He dropped mask. .... Thhhheeeennnnn while i camped cleric and logged on Rogue to loot it... i saw him spawn in the Big tent, facing the river the middle.. on the right hand side.. looted mask from first Zed.. camped ..logged back cleric... killed him a 2mnd time and sure enuff! he dropped again. i was shocked. so i sent a tell to /general chan for whoever wanted... someone got there by about 20secs late...

INFO:::: if you going to do this you might have someone there to loot..because Zed has a 8min rott time :(

so sad..item like this

anyhow hope all my exp helps someone out there :D

Been camping this guy for almost 48 hours straight, killed him aprox:21 times, no mask

So far i have killed this guy 13 times...most ALL times have been from 2-2.5 hour respawns...

at kill #7 he spawned 4 times in 1.5 this point i havent done anything different, all the same killings

( im writing this)....brb going to go kill Zed....

Bah, kill #14..he respawned 30mins since last kill, he dropped Boots and Head again..

anyways, I guess the fastest way i been killing this camp is to use Ward of Reprisal. im a lvl 75 Cleric and its a lvl 72 spell. Even when Zed is up i still pull the whole camp..(had more Zed's spawn like this so far) Once i pull the whole camp i out run them towards the river and cast WoR.. I kill them in less than a min.

As far as the .."leave the named up" part you guys are talking about. i have done that for 4 hours, and alot of other things.. So far it seems that he is just a random (different spawn points) spawn.. but mostly on a 2-2.5 hour repspawn timer..with some fast respawns built into the timer.

1) He spawns in the big tent in 3 different spots, that i saw myself.

2) He also spawns at the camp fire in 2 spots (when he dropped the Noose, he was at the camp fire...closest to the tent that spawns Reynolds. Now Reynolds also spawns at that camp fire.

I sure want this for my wife and i wont stop untill i get it.. i love her :)

Ill keep you updated on anything new /wave


Anyhow all in all i killed him 18 times. only thing i saw different when i got my noose was that at the camp fire, there are 4 mobs that spawn... about 3 hours before #18 Zed spawned, there was only 3 mobs for the next 3 hours... SOOOOoo maybe a tell/tell sign??

blah this guy sucks

4 days and no zed

i got the femal sticklebush and the other dude that seems to be always duelwielding 2 FS weapons

i can never get those two to stay (at the fire place) becuase they seems to wonder off and get killed... so the "leave the nameds up" tactic doesnt work for me :(

I just recently finished camping the Halfling mask for my bard and oh man did it take a while. Although I admit i did mess up right off the bat. Just for kicks i went to the Overlord and killed him since he was up, and to my suprise the darned mask dropped =(. Well my bard was in PoK and ran his little **** off to get there to loot it. Sadly he died halfway down and I missed the mask for my bard. Well i was persistent and i killed the undead and chokadia on the way down to the Overlord spawn and parked him there. The 4 days I camped Overseer A$$hat i got 5 rings, 6 backstabbers, 2 cloaks, and 5 pairs of Nathsar Leggings from the Underboss. All in all it took me about 30 hours to get the halfling mask. So for the rarity of mask dropping mobs, yes they can be rare and they can drop them on the first shot, luck of the EQ /diceroll =). Keep trucking and they will drop for you.
I say swing the Nerf bat at the Gm's instead, maybe lessen the afk time they are used to having....
