Lucky me

Be sure to check Bazaar first, i was lucky and got it for 1500pp , but i had to goto LGuk anyway for the scribe part, si i bought the robe anyway and went to LGuk. Another lucky streak as the scribe was up, charmed him and got that part done. Thinking this was a lucky day i made a quick jump over to arch magus and he was up too , killed it and low and behold another robe, not lore great. Sold the second one in bazaar for 25k lol . Some of those lucky days make Eq so much fun for me =)
Forget Arch Magus - Go Yendar

I gotta believe finding Yendar in Steamfont has to be a ton easier than going to LGuk so I did it that way. Had my druid track him after talkin to his bro in the mage guild Ak'anon, then logged in the toons to kill him with.
High resists? Pshaw, let's say UNGODLY resists.
Melee is MANDATORY here, you gotta beat him down. Tried first with 73 sham and 66 cleric. Nothing would stick spellwise / nukewise and we couldnt generate enuff melee to take him out. Got him down under 20% and then he ran us all over the zone. Couldnt root him and then they were both OOM. He was light blue to the 73 sham.
Went back with my 66 war and shaman, just kept casting Spirit of Puma. Only had to heal the warrior twice. Cake.
got my SMR!

Got one today off of the first Arch Magus I ever encountered after maybe 4 or 5 place holders. Needed help to do it with my 48 chanter. Thanks to the friendly High Elf cleric who helped me out!

pain in the **** if you've never been to lower guk lol. took my 69 mage out to get the robe. after getting lost w/ the ingame map not being much of help, I finally found the Arch Magus's room. killed the wizard twice, and Magus twice, and the spawn time wasnt that far apart...maybe 20mins to 30mins.

I saw the smr in bazaar for 38k and it has been the only one there. I don't care how long it takes to camp. There is no way i am going to pay that much for it. Ive camped it for 11 hrs now and all ph's.

If you want the SMR just go take out Yendar Starpyre. He is wearing it and drops it when you kill him. I went and slayed the gnome for my baby chanter after hearing how many peeps have had probs trying to get this from LGuk. He drops this robe every time. He is very resistant but not to bad of a fight.

Your not gonna believe this but on Tunare i was farming the Fabled Executioner's Axe on my berserker. (4 and 1/2 hours!!!!!) I then headed out that direction trying to find a way to the floor up. I ran into this guy just randomly buffing and rebuffing himself, so i moved around and dropped him easy. (this was on my paladin of course)
Guide to Camping the SMR
# Nov 18 2005 at 8:17 PM Rating: Decent
1 post
I thought I would share all the things you need to successfully obtain the SMR.

1.) 29 hours of free time
2.) 12 pots of coffee
3.) 4 packs of smokes (Roughly, one per Silversilk Leggings drop)
4.) Solitaire on your PC or Mac
5.) A friend to take over camp for a few, while you regain your sanity
6.) A good CD to rock back and forth in your chair to
7.) A soft, foamy covering for your mouse, when you bang your head on the desk

A detatchment with reality helps, but isn't required.

All of this is what got me through to the end. Now, onto the rest of my ENC's epic.

Ok - I've been camping the Arch Ghoul Magus for a week now, at least 5 hours a day. I have had the Magus pop numerous times. Most of the time he has popped 3 or 4 times in a row. I've have killed the Magus about 2 dozen times now, and have yet to see the glitter of a shining metallic robe... Only the crappy leggings.

I would petition the GM to find out if there is a problem, however, I haven't seen a GM on Druzzil Ro in well over 6 months.

I would buy the robe, But I don't have the 7k for which it is currently selling for right now.

I've read several posts that state the Magus is a rare spawn and getting him to spawn is what takes the time - Well, maybe they fixed his spawn rate, because I can usually get him to spawn serval times a day, and several times in a row.

If they did fix his spawn rate, they certainly have not fixed the drop rate on the robe :(

This robe is also dropped by Yendar Starpyre, a gnome in Steamfont. He roams around. He has really high resists and is some kind of intelligence caster. Took him down with me (52 rogue), 70 cleric, 65 bard, 62 SK, and 65 Ranger. This is a lot easier than camping the Ghoul Arch Magus in Guk for X amount of days. So far, I have killed him once and he dropped it once. Now i am missing just one piece for rogue epic (dang kedge robe). Hope this is a help.

I am on the Firiona Vie server and recently have been helping a guildie camp the ghoul arch magus for this drop. 4 days and still no robes! I remember when I had to get these for my epic and they dropped the first time that I killed him. Did they nerf this drop or what?

OK, this may seem like a silly question and I don't know where else to post it. I have noticed that some items that have a pic on allakhazam have a transparent portion (like the SMR DE fem pic) on DE, HE, and Erudite females. I don't see this in game. The robe doesn't have a transparent portion. Then I got to thinking, I have never seen any armor like this. So my question is; is there some graphics setting I'm overlooking or is this something that has been changed in the game or what. I have all the Luclin graphics turned on, /dopropertinting on, texture quality maxed. Is there anything I'm overlooking?

I don't know if it is just the Prexus server, but I looked these up in the bazaar a couple days ago and then have more than tripled in price. I had bought one two months ago for 1800 pp and now people are asking almost 10K pp.
Is this just happening on Prexus or is this global?

OK. I'm only a 41 Enchanter so I know that i'm not supposed to be able to take this guy....but i did some how. I dont know how but i did.......i only wanted to do it for fun and see the guy that everyone complains about never poping. I got there and he was up already and no one was around, so i attacked him. I killed him after about 20min of duking it out. But when i looted him i got my SMR. so in the end i only took about 40 min out of my day trying to get it. How great is that!!!

Someone tell me I'm not losing my mind here. Last time I've checked, the SMR was selling for 3k to 4k max on the Innoruuk server. But the other night in the bazaar, I've actually saw the SMR sell for 10K.

Did VI nerfed the drop rate on it to hike up the prices?

The increase in price is because of increased competition since Verant put Spell Haste II on this (thus increasing the speed of spells like Gate, Feign Death, Darkness, Root, and other low-to-mid level life-savers that INT casters need to get off fast).

I'm thinking of getting one myself, but it will have to wait. My BCR will do for now, and I *need* a horse for soloing. I think with the mana benefit of a horse my 42 necro will never need to med-break while soloing!

Well good story to tell:

I was down in L Guk to get my mask of deception, hooked up with a group and we went to the Store Room. Killed a little, the ranger in our group tracked Arch Mage, so what the heck, we thru on our invis vis undead and went down there and killed him, he dropped it the first time! well at the time I had no idea what he dropped, so we rolled. ( I have never rolled hi on random 1000, never ) I rolled 975!!1 WOoot!!! Well now i have this on the Torv server and will be in bazaar selling this weekend. So if anyones interested. its going to 9k on our server, so Ive been told, but who knows the way prices are being driven down, due to people now knowing what they got.

Going to begin MQing the droppable parts of Enc epic. My guildies often wander in to LGuk, and no doubt we can take him downtown, but there is 1 slight problem....

Since he's a rare spawn, should I...
a) Buy the robe on Xev for 9 FRICKIN K!!!???
b) Stay up a couple of nights to get him to spawn and get the robe.

I recently finished this part and have some info you may find handy.

Save your money unless you have nothing better to do with it.

The Arch Magus is indeed a rare spawn...I believe somewhere in the area of a 15% chance, with the SMR being his rare drop. (This has been discussed before).

I spent 2 nights camping for this with several members of my guild and other friends. Overall we had a great time. If you camp in the AM room and pull from Lord and Hand (and frenzy if you're lucky enough to have a nearly empty zone) a group of 50-55 (the makeup of my groups) will get decent loot and exp...and be relitively safe.

Patience is the key here, just get a good group together and have fun without worrying about the drop. Of course, you may have to wait a little bit and gain some strength before you go...

As far as MQing...I believe (I'd have to look at my notes again) that this is the only droppable part of the epic :( and since all our turn-ins are combines first, there is no nodrop MQs that can occur. (with the exception of the Copy of Notes portion...not sure on the MQability there).

Camping not worth it
# Sep 10 2002 at 10:43 AM Rating: Decent

My take on camping these things: Don't do it. Waiting 3 hours for a rare spawn and then waiting another three hours because he didn't drop the item you wanted is just not worth it. With the bazaar you can now get 3 times the ammount of pp you'd need to buy this item in the time it takes to drop.

And the people who do camp these things? All the time spent down here in the cellars makes em go insane. :P

the problem for me is that i DON'T have 5k to buy this friggin robe. thank god there was the fabled mob party going on down there today. it is amazing how there is never a rogue in lguk when i am there. anyhow, i worked this zone for 6 hours and we WERE killing placeholders and the ******* NEVER spawned, let alone drop this friggin robe. i did however manage to snag a Fabled Serrated Bone Dirk. i think the raid felt bad for me. oh well. i guess i do it again next week. i still have to get the damned kedge robe too. /sigh. now i see why people don't do epics anymore. with all the great weps out there, maybe it really isn't worth it anymore. and just a note, can SoE PLEASE update the graphics on the epic wep's? why do they look like such crap? hello, a 15/25 blade with mad stats and 40 haste should not look like something jack dumbass made in shop class.

Either i'm having terrible luck, or the drop rate has been changed on this. Back about 4 months ago, i got this robe in about 6 or 7 hours of camping magus. Recently, i've spent almost 10 nights (not in a row) camping him for Shiny underfoot robe quest and all i get are those stupid leggings. Everyone i've seen who has either left before me, or camped the magus after me, also said it is not dropping for them either. Gm says it still drops (on Brell Serillis). What gives?

Just FYI. after camping the AM for about 20 hours off and on last weekend. he poped numerous times never droped the robe. I petitioned a GM to see if there was a problem. GM got back to me saying that the SMR was not dropping since the last patch :(
Hopefully the patch today will fix that problem

The main reason this is no where near the price of the jade reaver is because the AM is solo-able by several classes and does not require 1+ groups to kill the countless reavers for its rare drop.

I happened to get really lucky last night and bought one for 500p from a 52nd Enchanter on the Innoruuk server - no lie. I guess that the SMR has gone down in value a lot since the expannsions came out.

So now, which is better? Should I replace my Crystalline Robes (Wt 2.00. +10 AC, +2 Agi, +6 Int, +5 vsMg, +10 vsCold, +10 Mana) for the SMR?

SMR is needed for both rogue and enchanter epics. You got extremely lucky with that price, I would think you can still get 2k or more for it.

I would suggest selling it to someone needing it for quest, and keeping your other robe.

Because its for an epic its worth 2k.... NO... By the time a rogue is doing his epic he can solo the Arch magi, and unless hes lazy and desperate you wont get 2k off this by anyone. Course i suppose your price would really depend on how screwed up yer server econamy is.

Well, I am wearing the SMR right now; the graphics looks MUCH better than the green Crystalline Robe since the new patch.

I guess I'll hold on to it until I can get a better upgrade - like the Blighted Robe. After that, I'll probably sell it as you suggested. In the meantime, I'll just use the Crystaline
Robe if I need resist gear.

I'm kind of in the same position. I have crystalline robes and was thinking about getting a SMR. I don't know if the extra 3 INT and +8 SV fire of the SMR is worth losing the other stats of the CR (+2 AGI, +10 SV cold, less weight, +10 mana, +5 SV magic).

You can easily go and kill this mob if you are mid 50's however thats the easy part try killing it for 3 wks and it never dropping. Thats why its so hi priced. It runs 5-6 k on my server Torv.. I just sold mine for 5k. Sometimes you will get lucky and it will drop the first time. I hope you will be lucky. I would hate to see you waste 2-3 wks camping him.

was down in lord hall soloing fairly new to zone.. i had never attempted the lord or arch magnus..matter of fact, I had never seen arch magnus till last night. Well, some peeps were looking for group so i got a nice one nice we decided to kill the lord. Did that twice and I was about to leave for a phiny raid and the shaman in the group hear AM casting so i said sure i can stay and kill him. Sure enough he dropped the robe, i rolled a 984 and i'm off with my loot!

Camped the Magi off and on for long periods of time for 3 weeks with my cleric friend, and I must have looted two dozen pants. Finally, yesterday the cleric suggested he be the one to loot the magi just in case there was something in the code that lowered the chances of a drop for those of us concentrating on int. First time he did the looting, the SMR was there.

Coincidence? We'll never know.

I personally think it was a coincidence, then again you never know I hunted AM with a Cleric, enchanter, druid, warrior and myself being a monk. We camped Hand, lord, magus and the hall at the same time and get killer xp :) and we got the Robe 2 times in a row one night :) Gave one to the enchanter (looted by Cleric) and I won the other one (looted by me)

So perhaps there is something about this... coincidence.

Then again we properbly just got lucky.

If you stop and think about it, you will realize that drops are determined upon Spawn, not upon death. Many items that can be seen (The Orc Trainer In CB and the Shiny Metal Shield, Various Weapons, etc) are visible when you fight the creature. The item(s) MUST be determined at Spawn, although I will allow that maybe some other factors may effect whether the 'intended' drops actually do wind up dropping.

So I agree that it is coincidence.

Camped the arch magus for this item two days in a row on the Xev server. Killed the arch magus ten times and got ten sets of legs. Oh well got some nice exp from the camp so not all was lost.

Now that it's required for the Enchanter Epic (and the Rogue epic too, I think), Verant has upped the drop nearly 3fold. Expect to see these prices dropping soon.

You: 'What do you know about a mechanical pen?'
Rilgor Plegnog says 'Why do you want one of those contraptions. You will spend more time repairing it then you will writing with it. But if you insist on getting one, you are going to have to do a small favor.'
Rilgor Plegnog tugs at your robe and grins evilly. Mighty nice outfit you have there. Sure beats these drab robes us three are wearing. favorite color is purple, in fact a shiny metallic purple would do nicely. How bad did you want that pen?'

You give Rilgor Plegnog a Shiny Metallic Robe.
Rilgor Plegnog says 'Very nice!! It is perfect! Here take this pen. Have fun with it.'
You gain experience!!
You recieve A Mechanical Pen.

I have no idea who Serroot Neeble is but if you are doing the enchanter epic the pen along with the white paper and ink of the dark go to Stofo Olan.

Stofo Olan - Erudin, 2nd floor of the Vasty Deep Inn across from Library - (Location -1105, -63) Top of the steps take the hall all the way to the end, door on the right.

Spawn & Drop

I played last night, in 12 hours the ghoul arch magus popped 5 times and dropped the robe 4 of them. My group was so nice and let me have it for my epic after a reroll in which the first time I did not win.

But either we got really lucky or this is common. The magus' PH is in the corner by the bookshelf and hidden wall. He is 45 and if you are camping in the room you can catch him without a pet. He nukes for not a whole lot, but need to have a cleric or 2 sub par healers. He has a lot of HP, around 3k or so. The froggie village was empty that day so our group pulled the hand and lord also. Everything down there except maybe the hand is on a 28 minute spawn, so have someone keep track. You can easily get a lot of loot and exp with a smart and well rounded group and a good puller. We only had one death and that was at the start when the cleric got killed from those new healing hate changes, but otherwise we were fine.

Lord is a nasty git, maybe around 7k hp and a harm touch to boot. he dropped the SSB both times we got him so I can't give any advice on how hard he is with a yak, but I would guess a lot harder.

Good luck.

After about 3 hours in this camping the Lord, I got this Robe and an SSOY. Magus spawned once with robe, lucky me I was the only caster there. We had a 51 dru 52 monk 51 war 46 pal and me(38th Enchanter) holding Lord Magus Hand. Was not too difficult, everyone walked away with a crap load of serpentine bracers and an ssoy. Nice robe too, replaced my Advisor really nice. ;)

He is level 45 not 35 so gives the loot a little more retribution.
