Looks like he spawns outside of the world (so my data search says he spawns!) I'm not sure where he belongs... The allakazam mentioned location looks reasonable... so will probably go there when I can get it in game.


I found location in history and placed him there (not where allakazam says he is) This will go in the July patch.

He spawned at +17, -198, -171 down on the ground next to the big wooden bridge. I waited to see what spawned in his place and it was "a goblin ice master" and he did roam.

King Dronan PH info and locations

This was tested on the servers vox and phinny with the same results.
The PH for King Dronan is "a goblin cave lord". I believe there is only one PH but I'm not 1000% sure.
Hard part is finding the right goblin cave lord. The PH and King Dronan are not roamers, they will be in a permanent position.
Any roamers that are goblin cave lords will not be the PH.
If you kill a cave lord and it respawns as a totally different mob, then it is not the PH.
gobin cave lords that spawn in the same spot over and over consistently are not the ph either.
The PH and/or King Dronan can be at any of the spawn points shown here https://eq.magelo.com/npc/96712
The respawn points on the PH and King Dronan are totally random and can be anywhere. Bring a tracker.
It may take awhile to spawn King Dronan, but he can spawn back to back.
Copper hammer is the common loot and the devastating maul is rare. His quest earring drops every time.

So much conflicting information (like Rogtubok's subsequent post).

This above post doesn't seem to pan out - at least on our server. There were zero spawn points in the zone that spawned Cave Lords regularly. Most we had was 2 Cave Lords before something else appeared.

We are keeping some 40 spots down + King's room - but many hours and no luck.

After reading many posts on this topic, I'd like to add my own observations. I've found King Dronan up while farming tribute in the zone twice, in as many days (10.26.13 & 10.27.13). Many cave goblin lords were up at the time, and he spawned in areas that cave lords do not seem to spawn. This leads me to conclude that his spawn cycle has nothing to do with goblin cave lords, and he is simply a rare random spawn with many placeholders. I apologize if this conflicts with other opinions. Good hunting.

After running around for more hours than I care to admit to, he spawned at -823, -550 in the SW part of the zone. I eventually resorted to just tracking down and killing the cave lords.

I zoned into Droga for the first time in 10 years and he was right at the entrance from Frontier MTS. Unfortunately, I forgot about that fake wall when I was maneuvering to attack and fell into the area below. I don't think there is a way to climb back up there.

I cannot yet put my finger on the method of spawning him, but I can give a list of locations at which he has spawned. The lines with a"K!" marker are spots that I personally observed him at. He was static at all three spots, and the location is from standing on top of him and recording the loc on my map. The lines with a simple "K" marker is indicated are from Magelo, and I think they represent loot spots.

P -1049.9596, 240.4679, -160.0973, 240, 127, 0, 2, K!

Further to the above, I can add another confirmed spawn spot and what I am reasonably confident are PH spawn points. The PH? is not completely certain due to a tracking range problem.

All 3 PH's were a goblin cave lords, all conned yellow or red to a level 57 ranger.

Went to Droga today to get some tribute items, the King was up in the far southwest part of zone. He was standing on the second floor of the room that is near the ramp by the Food Supplier. Location of spawn -527, 2108. This was a day after the dps merc patch. Have wiped this this zone many times months ago and this is the first time I've ever seen him. Figured I'd post that he still exist and most recent spot sighted. He dropped CHoS and Earing.

Killed the King today at 121, 1918 (passage away from current Earth Mystic Gedak spawn). I think he was a wanderer. I think I also killed him once in the area outside the old King's room, I think he was a wanderer up on the wooden walkway.

I like the notion of tracking and killing all the Cave Lords, since in the past that's what he spawned from. Good idea previous poster.

Yes, he still spawns. I found him right after a restart, killed him, waited for respawn and found that it's a random spawn elsewhere in the zone. The PH was a goblin cave lord. I tracked him and killed him and it respawned in a 3rd loc. I can only surmise that there is a table of respawn locs that are chosen at random, I kinda doubt it's a truely random location. But since I didn't track it through more than 3 spawns I'm not entirly sure. The King was the only mob I killed in the zone. He did drop the CHoS too.

I have spent over 12 hours in the King room. Ive probaly cleared the room about 100 times; killing nearly 500 of those stupid lil gobbies with my 70 RNG. I have yet to spawn him. The only good thing that has come out of it was that i got my 53 BST a pair of Kingly Boots of Splendor from the other mob down the hall. But i REALLY want a CHoS for my BST. That was my purpose of the trip down there to begin with. Can ANYONE please tell me what i need to do in order to get one? Im gettin tired of killin these silly goblins.

Has anyone found the King's new location since the patch of 6/16/06? Please pst if you have


UPDATE: I have killed the King 3 times since patch, but i did not spawn it. Once i spotted the king in tunnel by zone in. Next time I spotted it up on ramparts by ladder just outside kings old room; last time i spotted it in tunnel near jailers room.
These are random pops, so is the ph still the cave lord like it used to be? If so which cave lord where? I have killed hundreds of static cave lords and still no cave lord that pops the king?
Next idea: Since king has been popping randomly by someone killing its ph unknowingly, then possibly the ph is no longer the cave lord, but a mob that also pops in a different spot also. The only other mob that does that is the alchemist, and the alchemist now pops in places where there are quite a few mobs making it difficult to pull it out from others. So far I have not gotten the King to pop yet from killing it. I need to keep trying.

cleared the wood tower in refference to post below and did not get a King spawn in 6 hours. Also, the ph was spawning on top of the wooden tower. King might have been pathed to that spot or I was just unable to get King to spawn in 6 hours which has never taken that long in my many days of farming him.

Also 6 hours over three nights. Lucky we were there for exp for some lvl 50+ warriors or it would have been a waste. I spend a lot of time in this zone and have excellent track, so will keep and eye out for him.

I was in Droga today looking for nameds and no less than the king was up, so I decided to have a try at him. As a 67 necromancer (57 AAs and was self-buffed: 2700hp 4600mana), using the 65 pet I must say that the hardest part was clearing mobs to the king before the mobs actually repop on you. The mobs at the entrance of king's room are the only ones that you have to fight at the same time and for that I rooted one and had pet tank the second one. The rest you can single pull them until you reach the king. The king himself is not much tougher than the mobs surrounding him. Note that to get to the king I only had to kill 2 mobs of the 4 that are in the room.

Definitely as far as power is concerned. The only thing you'll have to worrry about is making sure to stay out of adds' range.

I soloed the Earth Seer (SotBS) above the King's room as a 65 cleric with 5khp/mana, and this was before having the DoN proc-ward. You will way over power him.

Took him down with 64 shm (me) and 65 monk. Cleared from far hallway, into the temple. Monk could paic and single pull. Only prob was keepin mob rooted after 20% (monk had a 43/30 with 2 procs, kept breaking root). The actual fight was cake, first slow landed, monk popped InnerFire and Whirlwind discs on him, didnt need to heal once. Dropped Earring and CHoS.
