"Ultra Rare" drop is an understatement

I hunt rare mobs/rare drops for the fun of it, so I decided to try for this staff. It does still drop, mine dropped on a regular server January 28th 2016, but the amount of named you have to kill in order to see the staff is unreal. I did not do a tally like Healeyu did on the post below, but I would guess it had to be about 80 to 100 named before I saw it drop. Not phers...100 NAMED. I couldn't believe how rare this thing is and how long it took. Almost a month of checking it many times a day. It must be a 1% chance drop rate or some crazy number like that. Xalgoz will pop almost every other time so it is not hard to get him, it's just that he drops (2) 1hander swords and a medallion , or (1) 1hander, (1) 2hander, and the medallion almost every time. When the staff dropped it was with a 1hander and a medallion as usual. This was more rare than Raster or any of the other named/drops I have done, even the vocal chords from Chardok drop more often than this staff imo.

During the Fabled time frame of 2011, my semi-afk magician alt lived at the Xalgoz spawn for a month. I killed him quite literally hundreds of times. Set an audio trigger so I could ignore the spawn until named popped. Never saw the staff drop, so I have serious doubts the Fabled Xalgoz has the original treasure table.

I have since acquired a Staff in trade, so I have zero intentions of revisiting Kaesora ~

On the mac server this still drops. Code was froze for our server circa Apr 2003 so no fabled mobs.

We were leveling my new Necro and a Ranger and decided to get HS key pieces. Xalgoz was up, no staff was visible as folks have mentioned, but he dropped it on our first kill. Didn't even know this staff existed and was nice I was there with my lvl 38 Necro.

I'm fairly sure this dropped off Xalgoz within 2 years or so. I got one awhile back while farming Xalgoz for HS key. I do recall reading it was super rare at the time and now it says no longer dropped. I don't know the current state of the item but it definately dropped at that time.

so...the year is 2006, I'm not even sure if anyone goes to HS anymore, I wanted to because I'm a 70 Necro and I do so love to slaughter a whole zone. I find that I need a key, I search Alla for the details and start camping Xalgoz and the Chancellor. I finally got my key but, my natural curiousity has gottenthe better of me, "What else do these npc's drop?". So I check...and then I drool. So I start camping this guy after I'm keyed for this staff. Now all this time a friend of mine is just baffled, why does a 70 Necro with Copper Hammer of Striking and the Icewell MM Shield want this p.o.s. staff that has a spell 15 levels lower then the Fear I have? Sadly he will never know because he's a rogue and I wont tell him...but have you EVER been so bored that you just do stupid quests or farm stupid items just to have them? OH YEAH ITS NOT STUPID CUZ ITS NOT NO TRADE!!! $$$ Now the F**ker just needs to drop it...If I could count that high I'd tell you how many I've killed, that's even why I'm writing this really insanely long and drab post, maybe he's spawned now I shall go check, peace out.

LOL. Does this even drop?

I camped this guy back in 2003 (before I quit for 4+ yrs) for easily 8 hrs, maybe more and the staff never dropped.
I just decided to come back to the game a few days ago and decided to go back here with my 71 cleric for good times.
Why is a cleric camping you ask? Just b/c I never got it to drop "back in the day", so I want to come out on top and finally nab it. Plus, if I don't give it to my necro then I'll probably sell it for some much does it go for anyway?

Well, since NO ONE even goes here anymore, I simply made my way down to Xalgoz and he was up, so I cleared him out along with a few nearby mobs and just cast invis vs undead, log out for 30 min and come back...hehe, if I did this a few years ago, I would run the risk of losing the camp.
Anyway, I've been doing this off and on all day (killed about 10 spawns and all but 3 were Xalgoz). Every time he dropped the stupid iksar necklace and 2 fangs. DROP IT YOU *******!!

As you can see, I've mostly came back for old school rare drops. Just the thrill of finally getting a much-coveted item to drop that I never saw during my run from 2001-2004.
Been back for about 4 days and so far:
1) FBSS (L Guk - frenzied ghoul) ...check
2) jboots quest ... check
3) Staff of forbidden rights .... pending

Does anyone know if he's holding it when he has it? or does he trigger it so you know he has it? anything at all? about 15 Xalgoz kills in the last 3 days, only 2 blades, always 2 teeth and shrunken iksar skull necklace. Oh an interesting side note he makes the grunting noises like a human when you hit him, like a bandit in the Karanas =)

7 second cast time but I dont know what level you can use it. I seriously doubt you can use it before level 34+ cause that is when you would get the normal spell to begin with. I am Level 22 and I just got mine in the bazaar for 5k. WOOT! Can't wait till I can use it. 42 second long fear rocks!

14.5hrs on 08/14, 09 Xalgoz, no staff. Lots of Blades, & Fangs, but no Staff.
16.0hrs on 08/15, 18 Xalgoz, no staff.
15.0hrs on 08/16, 20 Xalgoz, no staff.

I'm in the middle of day 4, no joy yet. I have so much time on my hands, I'm getting delirious. But I've caught up on ironing & much house work, so it's not all bad :)

Solo-able by untwinked 50 NEC, 30 minute timer on the button. If you sit at the bottom of the 1st ramp down behind the alter, there are no wanderers. Once broken the 1st time, you can get away with just killing the 3 main church guards & xalgoz. When 20 minutes since last Xalgoz kill have elapsed, begin pulling the 3 guards down the ramp 1 at a time, use /pet back off to keep your pet from prematurely engaging. You will have 5 minutes to spare before Xalgoz pops all by his lonesome. Pull him down the ramp same way, & kill him. Go afk for 20 minutes, rinse repeat.

Long story short (kinda)...

I'm a level 54 beastlord. I had just finished up with a group in the Torgiran mines (where I got my black powder, woot!), and decided that while I still had some good buffs, I would run to Kaesora to get a Xalgoz fang for my Charasis key. I used invisibility to drop down through the holes, and run down towards the church area. The first time I saw an undead mob is where I stopped to summon my warder and buff us up for some greenie steamrolling. I fought my way down to the church, and cleared the mobs out of the first tower on the left, then the platform in front of the church. While I was fighting, I heard Xalgoz casting spells, so I thought to myself, "Great! He's already up for me to kill!". After clearing the platform, I pulled out the mobs in the room with him, and everything was ready for a nice safe fight with a low blue mob. I pulled Xalgoz out, and once my pet was on him, I dropped Ice Shard and Frost Shard on him for some fast damage early on (mainly because the other two folks who had entered the zone had already worked their way down to the church, and I could see them watching me fight on the platform Smiley: wink) , then stepped up to melee with him. Towards the end of the fight, he was almost dead, and my Ice Shard had refreshed, so I stepped back and let him have it. I was about to become a very happy Iksar!

I looted the corpse, and of course he had the shrunken skull medallion for the Iksar shaman cudgel quests. Great, my shaman is an Iksar, and he's almost to this part of the quests, so maybe I can MQ this necklace. Next, I looted my Xalgoz fang, and since I already have a Jade Chokidai Prod in the bank, my Charasis key is just a short time away. To top it all off... he also dropped the Staff of the Dreaded Gaze! My necromancer is level 52, and of course he's also an Iksar, so this staff will come in extremely handy for him! This was just one of those kills that makes you feel good about killing it, since I managed to loot three items that will help out three different Iksar of mine. Woot woot woot, I'm so glad I decided to run down to Kaesora and kill Xalgoz for his fang! Smiley: yippee
Well Worth It!

After almost 3 weeks of dilligent camping I finally got the staff and it was well worth the time and effort. Don't be put off by the casting time because like anything, practice makes perfect! Once you get a MOB feared go ahead and cast early and often to make sure it stays feared. I recast every time a MOB's life bar goes down a bubble and it seems to work well. You've got nothing to lose -- especially manna.

Good luck!

Went down do the curch last night specifically for this staff, got there and Xalgoz was already up, killed him and he dropped the usual loot (a rune, necklace and 2 fangs) he spawned three more times in a row, the third time dropping the blade and only 1 fang, then a PH spawned then Xalgoz spawned again and dropped the staff, 5 Cycles, 4 out of 5 being Xalgoz
Good luck to the rest of you after this fine staff

By the way,

Tha stats include Int +6 and Mana +40 so really its more the equivalent of Int +10. I still carry it all the time at level 56. You get used to the casting time real quick and never even think about it. Don't let the casting time deter you.

This staff is worth every pp someone wants for it. Can you say constant exp in The Grey with little mana and a nice chance of sellable drops.

Also bonus, it looks very cool.

it has always had a 7 sec cast time .

one thing i did notice is you used to have to mem invoke fear(100mana) because the effect wouldnt take hold with any other version of fear but after one of the recent patches it seems to overwrite the cheap fear making this all the more useful .

BTW if your selling your staff for 8k you are without a doubt selling yourself short.

With the change so that pets take no experience in fear kiting unless you do NO damage whatever and you always will because you are using Dark line to slow, I can easily see how the price on this item would go way up. Mana free fear refreshing during kiting and the pet is taking noe exp.

Raptors in Tim Deep at 53 can be done so easily. Pull with cascading, sick pet, fear, BoD. They die before you need to refresh cascading. With fear staff, this is basically risk free. Chain fearing SF mtns mobs, again easy exp and spell drops. Kiting HG's for pp in Rathe, easy. This is a sick item.

This dropped for me on Tholuxe Paells last nite (7/01/02). Just some clarification. I am 53 Necro and could single pull anything down there with no trouble. Xalgoz is undead. Shackle of SPirit and your pet with Aug on him rock the house. I would pull with Shackle and sick pet and med. Pet tore everything up easily (49th tanker version pet..not the Rogue pet). I also loaded up engulfing for the spectral stuff because it ran on low health, all the skellies mobs did not run. Exp was decent even though most stuff was green. Even with two mobs on the pet, if they are slowed he wins everytime.

Best way I found to fight him with pet is to park just off to the right of the front of the Church against the wall. Clear the spawns in front and pull him with Annul to get rid of his buffs (he always has up Banshee Aura). Spam /pet back off until Xalgoz gets to you. He will cast on you but almost nothing sticks and its all low level stuff anyway. Then EB him, BoD, engulf and let pet kill him. Don't fight inside church unless you do not care about adds from the basement.

As for his casting: he starts by casting chilling embrace on you a couple times. If you have up DMF it never sticks. He also casts Boil Blood, Dooming, Scourge and Invoke Fear. I usually buffed pet with Resist Disease and DMF because of these spells.

The only spell that ever stuck to me was Boil Blood and that was irrelevant because BOD is more than sufficient to counteract that affect. I have lousy gear, crappy resists and not good intel and this camp was a breeze.

About faction. I started off with Outpost at Kindly. I was down there about 3 days killing stuff. I ended up with Kindly. The hits are miniscule.

One last note. There is a post on this board about how to get to the Church. I think in the Xalgoz section. Its an excellent road map. I followed it to the "T" and walked down to the church myself using Invis and Invis undead and FD. It was very easy and involved no dangerous trains.

P.S. - Post is by Ishtarra, Scholar in the Xalgoz message board thread. Follow those isntructions and you can get there easily by yourself.

Xalgoz - spawn time: 30 minutes.

Does Item Still Drop as of May 2002?
# May 16 2002 at 5:49 PM Rating: Default

Can anyone confirm this is still a drop off Xalgoz as of May, 2002? I have been camping this with a Necromancer since she dinged 53. I only kill Xalgoz, or the PH and only Xalgoz is blue at 53. I am now less than 4 blues from 54 so it gives you some idea how many times I have killed Xalgoz over the past month. I understand the staff is rare but I'm starting to wonder if possibly the drop has been removed or if possbly the addition of the necklace for the shaman quest has goofed up the staff drop

Thanks for any info!

Well I play SZ and so far as I know am the only Necro with this staff! This thing is killer. Once I hit lvl 40 I could solo 6-7 mobs before downtime. All ya do is keep mob feared and pet attackin and mez before it dies. Oh and I camped the guy with a 60sk for 4 hours. Xalgoz popped 3 times and his placeholder like twice. He also doesnt have a graphic of holding the staff so we almost didnt kill him the last time he popped. OMG im glad we did. :D

While I have yet to get the staff (after 14 hours so far) I have, as a necro, come up with the best way to camp Xalgoz. First get a timer. Xalgoz or his placeholder is on a 1/2 hour spawn timer and he spawns in the church directly behind the altar. What you do is cast invis to undead (improved if you have it) and walk inside the church to target him or just use /target Xalgoz. Then go behind the church to just below the steps and directly in front of the window. Pull with Bond of Death or other lengthy cast time, fast acting DoT if you don't have BoD. He will cast on you which will give you time to cast Insidious Retrogression (great spell), not only doing some nice DD damage but snaring him too. Next cast Hungry Earth... yeah the first root spell you got. Why? because it does nice damage too at higher levels. Banish Undead or whatever the highest level undead DD spell you have is and he should be almost cooked. Repeat Banish and he's done.

I have single pulled Xalgoz from an entire room of undead every time using this method at 54, but it should work at much lower levels. Hope this helps. Wish me luck!

It's actually far easier to park yourself and pet at the side of the church! (Follow the path where you enter the church area around the back of the tower where the four guardians spawn and park at the point you can see the entrance to the church.) From this point you can single pull everything quite happilly. (I've been doin' it at level Fifty-One and can single pull everything to here.)

Have been pulling with Dooming Darkness, following up with Shackle of Bone and setting pet on it, once it's past the opening to your camp. Both spells are low cost. (A total of 200 mana.) The L49 pet, with Augment on it can shred all the shackled creatures without taking any appreciable damage.

Doing this, I can also single pull Xalgoz while leaving the guardians that spawn on either side of him. This is done by casting Dooming Darkness from the door to the church! (I've always killed the one that spawns directly in front, since it seems likely he'd come with.)

Killing Xalgoz follows the same. Shackle of Bone and an Envenomed Bolt. (EB for the simple reason that at L51 he's still dark blue, so it's worth KS'ing my pet.) He casts Fear2 almost constantly, but in a dozen, or so kills, it hasn't actually stuck once!

Anyhow, hope this helps anyone a little lower than level Fifty-Four.

My own comment about pulling Xalgoz over the spawn in front of the alter sparked my curiousity...

But, you can pull him single over this guy. So, the only ones you have to clear out, are the four standing on the platform in front of the church door. Everything else you can quite happilly ignore.

Hope this helps.

Just got the staff last night 7/01/02. Your method is the exact method I used except I pulled with Shackle of Spirit or Annul for Xalgoz then shackle. At 53 I was able to single pull everything and him out of the room alone just as you said.

Not sure this method will work at much lower levels. As a 52 necro I was not able to single pull Xalgoz without aggroing the two guardians on eaither side of the altar. Although, except for Xalg, everything else there ispretty much single pullable. Im thinking I will rest the dead on them and break using ST prolly. They are not all that hard to kill. Xal casts Fear2 alot, but mostly resists.

I've spent the last two days hunting him. (Still no clicky staff yet! *Sigh*)

The undead SoL Shackle spells work on him perfectly. I haven't used the undead nukes or Hungry Earth, but he most definitely is undead.

Happy huntin'.

Ummm. Have you ever TRIED it? He IS undead. I used this method EXACTLY as described above and have my staff to prove it. He is a Vampire according to some posts I've read. So maybe you want to log onto Prexus and give me a tell. I will gladly show you my staff if I am not too busy hunting something else instead of posting something which has NO VALUE or VALIDITY such as your most recent.

Okay, well it isn't a pile of crap to say the least... just ****** about the long camp. I have wanted this thing since very early lvl when i saw someone walking around with it, i didn't even know what it did, just thought it looked cool lol.
Anyways, made it to 50 and i set out to make it mine. What a god forsaken camp this is!!! I kept track of spawn info and before he dropped the staff i killed him 52 times and a near equal number of PH. So it took me a little over 50 hours to camp this thing. I did most of the camping non stop, and durring the whole thing i slept about 10 hours total hehe. Had a lot of friendly guilds come in and watch me camp so they could get their keys, and even a few un-friendly guilds who just ran in and ks'ed. Most of time i was all by myself. Near the end of camp i started to go insane from lack of sleep and i decided to try out my splurt spell on my self... needless to say i died. :(
This staff is really great and i'm so glad i have it, but you really have to want one to get it. A 50 hour camp is no fun and putting up with a 30min spawn just sucks even more. One good thing about this camp is you can solo pull the whole floor and kill everything, or just pull xalgoz or ph and leave everything up and go afk between spawns. I spent a good 14 spawns afk the whole time, just set a timer. Anyways, got staff on 1/15/02 So it does still drop despite what so many people say. Goodluck, you'll need it :)

I have camped this mob for the last 7-8 days, over 30 hours this week. Dropped easily 20 Xalgoz and 20 PH's quickly altering my fraction in OT. Now I come to the board to find out its been moved?!! Oh **** na, CAN anyone back up the claim that this has been moved? I expected it to be rare, but if its not even there I'm going
to be one pi**ed off Necro.
