Looks like the Glowing Black Stone is the item required to complete the quest described as "APPQuestJohnC"
The "APP" prefix means it was created by a design apprentice who was tinkering with the tools and learning the game. This isn't a quest that can actually be completed. Years later, when QUEST flags were applied to items APPQuestJohnC was picked up in the query and the GBS was flagged as a quest item. I don't know who JohnC is. The quest was created on 2/26/2000 so this predates me by over 2 years.

Hope this helps solve the mystery!

There's lots of broken quests still in the game 17 years later. I remember when Sony still owned it that they tried to clean up a few of the loose ends like fixing the Clockwork Cargo quest so the bandits would actually spawn instead of the Clockwork Cargo suddenly despawning for no apparent reason while you were escorting it, but that effort didn't go very far. By that time, the players weren't using those zones anymore so I guess they felt it wasn't worth the effort to go back and fix things if the fixes weren't going to be seen by anyone.

Now, with everyone starting in Crescent Reach and with the Defiant drops helping everyone to powerlevel themselves for raids allowing them to skip over a lot of the low level content, there is even less reason to go back and fix anything that is older than a few expansions. They would just be paying a lot of people a lot of money to fix a bunch of things that nobody cares about anymore and that money would better spent fixing things that people are actually complaining about. I know a lot of players would be really upset if Daybreak spent a ton of their subscription fees fixing broken quests in vanilla EQ when there are more pressing issues in content released in the last 3-4 years that are frustrating people today.

When you had to wait for weeks to get a chance at camping Pyzjn because there was always someone sitting in the ruins killing everything in sight to get her to spawn. Once in a while a smartarse would come along who knew where the spawn points were (there are several for Pyzjn), and would simply wait at the most likely spawn point and jump her as soon as she popped, but there weren't many with knowledge that deep. Rangers would also hang in the zone with track up and wait for her to pop and track her before she reached the ruins. This was in the days when you could enter QH, use /who and see at least 20 people in the zone all the time. Now you only see anyone in QH when Hadden is due to pop. :(

I spawned her four times yesterday afternoon. She spawned the first time right after I killed Varsoon and VT Undying. After that she seemed to be on a seven minute spawn timer. I killed very little after that and she continuously spawned on her own. Not sure if this was a coincidence (or however its spelled) or not.

Back in the day, these things were really the only compliment to the uber Stein of Moggok. This was also a huge intelligence boost and even with 10 whole magic resistance! The Glowing Black Stone used to be worth around 9kp commonly. Now, you are lucky if you can get 1kp out of it. I have seen it many times in the bazaar for about 500 or 600 though. So you should be able to easily buy it if you get frustrated with the camp, which as mentioned in the item description is a pretty rare drop, this coupled with a CHANCE spawn of once per day maximum.

Yep. Around the time SoL went live, it went for between 5 to 9k in the Bazaar, depending on the seller. Since then, I've seen people try to sell it for 2k, and it probably gathers dust in their trader satchels.

I bought mine for 500pp. :)

Chance spawn? I think not. I killed her seven times in just one hour while I was trying to get the Putrid Skellies to pop for my monk headband quests.

Just came from Jaggedpine on my way to POK for some C3 and Temp and came into QH from Surefall. She was up on track and no one in the zone so I figured what the heck. It was about 3 or 4 PM game time and she was just west of the hill west of the ruins standing there. Killed her and Nic Ressin (sp) took care of the pet for me, glad he didn't help with her cause she dropped the dagger and stone. Like I said lucky I guess.

I sat in the Hills for four nights. She spawned the second night with nothing but a dagger on her. I do remember that around ten o clock that night there wasn't anything to kill. She walked up from the SW part of zone. Later on the fourth night, she spawned once at ten o clock EQ time with that stupid dagger again and again at 4 am with necro blood. I am very disappointed and would have liked the stone. Oh well. Better luck next time. I do believe that killing rats will help her spawn. I forgot on the fourth night, all of a sudden there were tons of rats around. Killed them and there she was. In the middle of the ruins.
Got it

I've been camping both Hadden and pyzjn for a couple of weeks now, and finally got my stone off pyzjn. I killed Hadden (no drop) :( and went over to see if i could kill the little gnome a couple of time. I cleared the ruins, and after about 5 minutes, she walked in the middle of the ruins. I forgot what time it was, but I've killed her about 10 times, and the time doesn't seem to matter, although I only could get her to spawn at night. I then looted her and finally got the stone.

camped for 3 hours, off and on... just camp from 8pm to about 7am (eq time of course) run to blackburrow, blow some time buffing the little ones, then just camp from 8pm to about 7am (eq time of course) run to blackburrow, blow some time buffing the little ones, then just camp from 8pm to about 7am (eq time of course) run to blackburrow, blow some time buffing the little ones, then just camp from 8pm to about 7am (eq time of course) run to blackburrow, blow some time buffing the little ones, then just camp from 8pm to about 7am (eq time of course) run to blackburrow, blow some time buffing the little ones, then just camp from 8pm to about 7am (eq time of course) run to blackburrow, blow some time buffing the little ones.... yes... you like that idea...
I think the EQ gods just see you camping and feel your want, so they whizz on your parade. Just act like you don't care, always works for me.

Was funny. I have a 24 druid camped in Qeynos hills for tracking purposes... and to kill Pyzjn if she is up... well... I logged on this morning and it was 5pm game time. I start killing things I think are her ph and get some nice spawns (mangy rats and grey wolves near ruins and a grizzly at ruins). a little bit into 7pm i pop the grizzly and any other beast that is on a path to the ruins.. and pop pop. 2 pyzjns on track. lol. was great. i track one and kill it. hit track to get the next and pop... a THIRD Pyzjn is up. haha. on my track is 2 Pyzjn's and 3 pets...
I took a ss when there were 2 then another when i saw the third. None dropped the stone, but that would make an old world caster sick to have seen so many after they camped this chick forever for one.

So, she has at least 3 placeholders I would say.

Ok so I am wandering through QHills on my way to see if Hadden is up (I figure his spawn is broken atm no pops in 12 hours RL time) and waited on him all day and nada no Hadden so I wander on over to the ruins to see what all the hype is about Pizzy. The first night she spawned once and the rest of the time I was there she spawned twice a night with Varsoon accompanying her on her journey twice. So me being the necro hate'n shammy that I am blast both of them to oblivion. On the last night I was there some little lvl 1 ranger newb wandered throught the ruins at like 10pm and guess Pizzy no VArsoon nothing! Oh yea btw I killed Pizzy a total of 11 times in 1 RL day and no stone and all Varsoon dropped was a regular dagger 8-P Now I am gonna have to REALLY camp her just on principle!

OK, here goes...
My method was a simple one (right or wrong, I don't buy into the "kill the PH at a specific time" theories). As a matter of fact, I've seen three PH's stacked right on top of one another at the ruins at the same time...two rats and a bear! SO, I just kill 'em all! Everything at the ruins, center stage or not, must die, constantly. As nightime rolls around (she DOES only spawn at night...that much is true), continue to kill everything. Watch the hill in front of the ruins (to the left of the Millers as you look away from the ruins toward SFG), she'll show up soon enough...RANDOMLY.
A little "debunking" is in order...there is no timer that I can see...I had her spawn three times in one night, within 10 minutes...three little gnome corpses all lined up in a row. Other nights, just one or two appearances...but certainly no "4 hour EQ timer" or somesuch.
The night I got the stone, I logged into EQ at 2AM EQ time...immediately cleared the ruins (including a bear at center stage that must have been there since daytime (never seen bears running around the area at night), ran around like a fool for no more than two minutes, and here she comes over the aforementioned hill! Intercepted her halfway down, even before she summoned her pet, and boom...a GBS. Simple as that. Note, I didn't clear the PH at 4:01 or any other nonsense such as that...just killed everything in sight on a consistant basis (out of boredom if nothing else!)

Okay, I have no advice on how to make her spawn, but I'll tell you what I saw over my husband's shoulder as he ran through QH. He was coming from Qeynos, got to the hill just before the merchant house & a restless skeleton hit him. At the exact moment it died, 2 giant rats spawned just behind it. I figured it would be a good idea to kill them too. So he did, then ran to the ruins and killed everything, including putrid skeletons, a mangy rat & some dread corpses.

Grand plan? Secret method? Nahhh, but Pyzin did spawn in under 5 minutes, which is more than I had been able to get her to do.

And the sad end to this story is she only dropped a rusty dagger.

She spawned again as I was writing this and was gracious enough to drop..... YES... another rusty dagger!

I have gotten her to spawn 7 times in 1 EQ night, about 30 + times in the last 2 days. Sometimes within 2 minutes of each other. She has been nice and dropped 5 stones for me. I can tell you that she does have a placeholder which is random you just have to know which one.

I have been hunting pyzjn for 2yrs now. I know the spawn point is still random but she seams to have a PH now, it will stand near the center of the ruins near the center pillar. It seams that when the increased the spawn rates in the newbi zones it affected pyz.. i have killed her 5 times in one EQ night...but no stone..I'm not sure if she still drops it..good luck all

# Feb 08 2003 at 4:45 AM Rating: Decent
Was running from surfall to blackburrow for faction, and little lady and pet were walking up the hill away from the ruins, no one else around. Dropped the stone. So she is random im assuming, and not necessarily a ph kill to spawn.

Ultimate Guide to making Pyzjn spawn

Looking in here and in other sites, I found all sorts of people giving their "expert" opinion on how to get Pyzjn to spawn. I know you guys have heard this before, but after testing all those other guides and a few ones of my own, I think I have the "Ultimate Guide to Pyzjn" tm. In only 3 simple steps:

1. Strip yourself of all clothes and items and run 3 laps around QH /shout'ing: "I'm a pretty lady" (works on female and male characters).

2. Stand in the middle of the ruins, duck and /em ****** 57 times.

3. * Now this step is a lot more elaborated, and franqly I think I should get paid for it. So e-mail me and we'll arrange a payment of $29.95 to my account and I'll e-mail you back the last step to this guide!

With my guide. I'll garantee you'll get your GBS in no more than 2 weeks (RL time) of camping.

Not sure where I heard this but, I learned that the mangy rats are PH's for Phyzin. I have camped her several times all with no luck. Killing the mangy rats DID seem to make her spawn but it may have been more in line with the really long post on game time made by rewired.
I think he's really close to learning the trick on this but there is still a peice missing.
For instance, I have killed the mangy rats and seen her spawn in the middle of an EQ day.
killed her over 30 times now without seeing the GBS though =( oh well. just my 2cp's worth

I've read quite a few stories below me how they saw Pyzjn up while walking through QH's and nailed her and looted the GBS.
Well, This is one of those stories with two bittersweet sides too it. I originally camped this item to twink for my brand new necro I was creating. 14 hours and 3-4 kills later, nothing to show for it except me being ****** beyond belief.
Several months later after my new necro leveling project was taking way, My level 19 headed to BlackBurrow for some faction adjustments when I remember I was low on Bone chips. I head to the Ruins in QH and lay waste to the uncamped area. I'm there no more than 3 minutes when Pyzjn herself strolls up conning lightblue and indifferent to me. "Ahh What the ****" I thought and sent in my pet to wipe the floor with her and her pet. I click to loot and WHOAH! Glowing Black Stone and a rusty dagger. I sit at my computer desk for several moments just baffled that I actually looted it.
Later that day I head to Qeynos Aquaducts for some new spells and the whole "shady" bunch down there cons Dubiously now (before I was indifferent). ARGH! They won't sell to me so now I have raise faction back up to aprehensively just to use that place. Ugh. Well I guess Pyzjn is not the best person to fight but in this one case.. the reward was very bittersweet.

#Tullik, Posted: Jul 21 2002 at 10:11 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Oooook. So you all think yer all high and mighty becuase you figured out a stein of moggok has one extra more int plus a few other extra stats. Well, see heres the thing. When your lvl 55 walking around with a lvl 12 item in your hand it doesnt look so great. Fact of the matter is that half the poepoel who inspect and see "Glowing Black Stone" arent gonna know what the **** it is anyways but when they see stein of moggok they read peice of crap. Thats one reason. My second reason is GBS looks a **** of a lot better then a cup. what it comes down to is uberness vs commonness. Plus, if you have the money or time to get this stone im betting you have over 200int so why not go the extra mile to look way better. Just my 2 copper.

I feel kind of badly for you folks who camped her for so long and didn't find her.
I was waiting for my ladylove while she scribed and memmed new spells in SFG, and being the antsy ranger that I am, told her I'd meet her in QH because I wanted to try out a new sword (Coterie Longsword) to dual wield with my Morin ss.
Wandering around by the ruins came across the putrids and dreads and proceeded to lay waste to them and on the last, a dread, noticed the dread was being healed, but not fast enough to keep it from dying.
After it's death, little tiny pinpricks on my bod and on the target slot pops the name Pyzjn. "Who the heck is this?", says I. But didn't bother to answer, turned and walloped her and her pet. Got the GBS, didn't know what it was for, but kept it just the same.
And no, she wasn't camped at the time. This was at 4:30 AM PDT and I checked my track. Only 4 peeps in zone and I was one of them, and none of the other 3 anywhere near the ruins.
Feel a little bad about all the camping you others have done for this GBS, but it happens this way sometimes.

Well for the longest time i wanted a GBS but last week i bought a book of obulus for 2k ,and personally i think the book is better with 8 int and 45 mana plus a couple resist bonuses.The GBS is still a nice item but i think the days of 5 to 10k selling price are long may be a rare drop but i think it should only sell for between 1 to 2k now.

I was thinking about getting one of these. I ended up buying a book of oblivion in KC for 800pp and it blows this away. With the extra money you save buy a stein of maggok and now you have 18 int and + 45 mana and still have 4k left over for some GEB's LOL. Sounds allot better to me:P

I just have something small to add to your rant about the GBS being worth nothing 8).

It all depends on the server your playing on. I have played on VZ and SZ, and if your not wanting to get killed all the time by casters the +10 SVM is a nice thing to have. Ya it may be worthless to you cause you cant afford it, or your so mad that you cant get pyzjin to spawn that you have to come post your worthless 2 cents.

Ne Wayz....Try playing on a real server where all the MR in the world will keep you alive .....go play there and tell me you would rather have the stien. Im not saying that its the best thing since french bread , but im saying its not worthless.

Heck im a wisdom caster and I keep this thing close to my heart!

(Oh ya for all you who want to know how i got her to spawn? its random, everything about her is random, except the fact that she spawns and this is the killer *NEAR* the dread corpse spawn. I have killed her 19 times and gotten the gbs 1 time. in saying 1/19 chance to get the stone by my odds.)

GOOD luck on getting this item!
P.S. ummmm the reason that this item is so freakin much is that its *PRIMARY* AND *SECONDARY*, think about it......stien in 1hand GBS in the other. + its rare, + the spawn is rare too! Ya now that your post makes ya look dumb. 8) IM DONE!

Rant time

i am playing an enchanter that is under lvl 20, i hear about a decent peice of equip i can get for said enchanter, so i go to camp it, for 7 RL days straight, i have not been able to get near this camp due to 55+ toons that have nothing better to do than farm the **** thing to sell it.

I am sorry, i aint a twink, i dont have 3k(current price on xev) and am really starting to get ticked off that one of the very few decent int items i can get my hands on at my level is outa my reach....

To make matters worse, i ran into her wandering start fighting and guess what 57 wizzy nuked her, looted her and what do i see /auction WTS GBS 3k
5 seconds later

Enuff to drive anyone mad

next time,
If your camping an item for awhile, keep a hot key. Mine are always a little somthing like this /ooc campin (whatever), if ou see (whatever) spawn, pst, and thank you.
this does a few things, it lets people know, and if somone does steal your kill, then petition. What happens at this point is usally up to the GM, but in most of the time they will help ya. If they dont, you go onto your servers most used channel and say somthing along these lines "please dont buy from (whomever) he stole my kill, and looted (whatever), hes an **** hole... or a more fitting or detructive statment if you see fit.... this ruins characters reps... even if for a short time, and when you get up in level rep is very important. just my 2 cents

Hello everyone! Im fairly new to EQ and have never heard of the GBS, to my surprise i was in WC watching auctions fly by, when i saw someone selling the GBS, so i send a tell and the guys tells me to make a offer so i say 200pp not knowing the value at all. He replies back 300pp and you have a deal. Come to find out i bought the stone off a lvl 56 rogue, he must have been in a giving mood that day.

that was a long informative BORING post on "getting" her to spawn. Yes 11 minutes and 43 seconds something waltzes to the center of the ruins, but GUESS WHAT? she's completely random, and that hunk of worthless rock is random too =)


You are not lucky to obtain this item, you'll be lucky if you can find someone to buy it! hahaha

Anyone with common sense will buy a Stein of Maggok, and maybe an int dagger or some crap, because people really think they'll get 5k+ for this - and they're wrong - don't pay it, its worthless.

You're fooling yourself, i suggest finding another way to make that "easy money" you are so desperately seeking, because Pyzjin is a desperate measure.

have a nice day, get over this trash item =)

This item is priced for it's rarity, not it's value, so OBIQUON - that is why the stien is cheap, it's really easy to get
#PepttoBismal, Posted: Feb 14 2002 at 12:16 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) agreed, 9 int and 10 svm isnt that good, crap actually, with twinks like me out there, i can afford lody boots (wearin em now *grins*) and MUCH better int jewelry/weps/gear, dunt waste yer time with this rock, better off buying a black pearl and selling it to someone in disguise as a GBS (someone almost did that to me with bronze instead of crusty arms) if yer lucky that they dont right click it,an if they do log off as quick as you can!!!

you would really have to be an idiot to buy a black pearl by accident. Odviusily it is not the GBS as far as I know lore items don't have stack numbers like a black pearl

For some odd reason, (maybe it has been upgraded) I looted a (get this:) INT + 9 WIS + 9 sv MAGIC + 10 Glowing black stone, sadly i did not think it was unusual so i didn't grab a screen, sold it for a clean 8k. (Was just passing thru the QH's , saw Pyzin, whacked her, looted it!)
Is this......

Is this drop of a regular mob in Qeynos Hills and is this item really worth 7-8k?

also i was told that varsoon only spawns for Halloween and was wondering if this was true?

Hmmmm- well, I just killed him last night and checked the date a few minutes later.

It was mid April, Norrath time.

Maybe he is a PH? Regular normal PH?

NOTE: this is a REPOST.

I made a druid, twinked the crap out of him, and made level 20 fairly quickly. Four reasons why druids are best here: TRACKING (duh), SoW (gotta get to her quick), NUKING (Dizzying Wind is fast casting and will do over 50% damage), and PORTING (gotta make xp during the EQ day and I didn&#8217;t want to kill the Millers or guards). Rangers are also excellent, but I didn&#8217;t want to spend the time leveling the ranger. If you don&#8217;t have a 20th druid or a ranger, don&#8217;t even bother trying my procedure, you&#8217;ll be burned by a tracker. Now a mage might also work out with their spell &#8220;sense summoned&#8221;, but you&#8217;ll NEVER have advantage over tracking. The Everquest NIGHT starts at 8:00:00 PM and ends at 5:59:59 AM, Pyzjn will only spawn between those times. Pyzjn will NOT spawn after the EQ clock hits 6AM. The only reason you&#8217;d see her up is because she had spawned before the EQ clock hit 6AM.

Placeholder (Center of ruins) information:

large rat, brown bear, giant rat, grizzly bear, fire beetle, gray wolf, and mangy rat

Note: a grizzly bear, brown bear, and a giant rat are sole existing mobs in the ruins region and are guaranteed PH&#8217;s

decaying skeleton, skeleton, dread corpse, putrid skeleton, Varsoon, and Pyzjn

Notes: A walking putrid skeleton in the field is a guaranteed PH. Varsoon the Undying is not a Pyzjn placeholder. 8 out of 10 times when you see a dread corpse on the top of tracking at pop time, that is usually the PH. Dread corpses can collapse into a pile in certain points surrounding the ruins, but this is not very often.

Here&#8217;s what you do. Head to the ruins at around 3PM game time, go to LOC (4770, -1050, 50) and observe what PH is currently in the middle of the ruins. Do NOT kill it. Wait for the EQ time to turn to 4PM, add an additional 45 seconds, then kill it, and note the EARTH time. If by chance there is no PH at the ruins when you get there at 3PM, just wait until one comes. When the clock hits 4PM and there is still no PH, constantly monitor your tracking. If you see a grizzly bear, brown bear, or a giant rat, immediately begin tracking it, and observe its heading. ENSURE IT IS HEADING TOWARDS THE RUINS, then kill it. If the PH is not a grizzly bear, brown bear, or a giant rat, you will have to wait until it parks at the ruins. If you kill the PH after 6PM, you will only have 2 tries to get Pyzjn during the night. Hopefully, you get the PH killed before 6PM game time. This will give you 3 shots. In any case, ensure you note the earth time that you killed the PH, next pop will be in 11 MINUTES 43 SECONDS.

Pop time discussion:

If you kill the daytime PH at 3PM the remaining pop times are 7PM, 11PM, 3AM, 7AM (2 tries for Pyzjn)
If you kill the daytime PH at 4PM the remaining pop times are 8PM, 12AM, 4AM (3 tries for Pyzjn)
If you kill the daytime PH at 5PM the remaining pop times are 9PM, 1AM, 5AM (3 tries for Pyzjn)
If you kill the daytime PH at 6PM the remaining pop times are 10PM, 2AM, 6AM (2 or 3 tries for Pyzjn see paragraph below)

Ok, let me discuss EQ time, earth time, and the spawn time cycle. The reason is that it can be possible to get 3 tries for Pyzjn if you kill the daytime PH at (or very close to) 6PM game time. Essentially, this will require you to kill all the nighttime PH&#8217;s within 17 seconds of spawning. One EQ hour is equivalent to 3 real life minutes. The Pyzjn spawn cycle is 11 minutes 43 seconds, 17 seconds less than 12 minutes (4 EQ hours). If you killed the daytime PH at or just after 6PM game time, the 17 second difference between pop time and EQ time will be cumulative. Thus, after the first and second nighttime PH have been killed, and the EQ clock has barely rolled into 2AM, there will be enough time for another shot at Pyzjn. In summary, if you kill the daytime PH at 6PM, and you nail each PH thereafter as soon as they spawn, there will be time for a third try. However, if 6AM game time rolls around and there is no Pyzjn, or you notice a daytime PH up, consider this day over.

A great method of locating the PH during the EQ night, is to kill all undead mobs you see on track. Do this about 4 minutes prior to pop time. This helps to clear the tracking screen, making it easier to spot the new PH at pop time. At about 60 seconds to pop time, go to LOC (4550, -350, 100) and begin to hit tracking every 10-15 seconds, this will give you an idea of what is already up. At exactly pop time, hit track and see what new undead creature has spawned, track it, and get behind it to verify the direction it is heading. Once you are certain that it is headed to the middle spot in ruins, kill it and note the earth time. The next pop will be in 11 minutes 43 seconds. If, at any pop time, you track a WALKING putrid skeleton, Varsoon, or (hehe) Pyzjn, immediately begin tracking it and kill it. If Pyzjn does not spawn at the final pop time, you do not need to kill the PH. Just port out and get some XP, but make sure that you are back at the ruins around 3PM to repeat the cycle.

Interesting notes:

If you notice ANY PH &#8220;suicide&#8221;, meaning NO npc / player intervention, the next pop time will be in exactly 5 minutes. Also, the decay time of mobs in the Pyzjn cycle is roughly 8 minutes. If you get to the ruins at 3PM and notice a dead PH, wait until the corpse decays, note the earth time, add 3 minutes 43 seconds to that. You now have the rough estimate of the next pop time.

By the way, when Tovax Vmar walks to Northern Qeynos Hills, follow him. When he stops to drop the note, guess what else has just happened? He is standing on a Pyzjn spawn point, keep a log with locs and you&#8217;ll develop a rather neat connect-the-dot picture from an overhead view.

Occasionally, the pop time gets screwed up and arrives 30-45 seconds earlier than anticipated. This occurs very rarely, so don't worry about this too much.

Good Luck!



hehe, i've used this, and it does work, just get a timer, and read a book :p
