CB Queen down on Drinal @ 22:16 (eastern) on 2017-04-24

Got the goober with a /uptime for the zone of 05:12:16:22, so 5 days +/- 12 hours (in game) just fit, barely.

Well no, that's 5:12:16:22 since the zone popped.. she's not up when the zone comes up, and its unusual for someone to kill her immediately first pop anyway in my experience.

Recently, I found her up at 1AM gametime and started fighting her, even though I was expecting her to despawn at 2AM, as listed at the top of this page. However, when I checked the time mid-fight, it was already 3AM and she died a couple minutes later.

I'm sharing this, as I found it interesting, after reading all the info and comments about her spawn behavior.

It appears the 5 day respawn has been removed and she spawns at midnight every day, if she is killed or not.

Can anyone verify?

What is believed up to now is that she respawns every day at midnight, unless killed. If killed she's gone for 5 days.

If that was changed, it should have been in a patch. Of course there is no guarantee that any change gets announced.

I can verify it is still the 5 day +/- 12 hours. I helped a friend kill her for his scales then I waited her out for my set and it was 4.5 days before she respawned. This was just last week.

She got deaded on Wednesday at 11:25 am Eastern time on March 11th on the Drinal server. So she should be up again approximately 11:25 pm on Sunday March 15th, for those needing her drops.

Dropped the Scales of the Cragbeast Queen. Yay for my goober berserker. :)

Its prolly hard to believe.. but even now its still hard to catch this mob on my server.
Minimum respawn time 4.5 days is a killer.. it ****** the game play and spoil the fun factor.
7 years past since this mob out and not much changed, ppl still want it.
So.. maybe its a win to developers?

Easily solo'ed by a zerker with a merc these days. Don't forget to use a piercer.

85 Monk (alt char) 31k HP 4200 AC (clicky/merc buffed only) was able to duo with T3 merc (This was a close call on healer mana. I had forgot I had not yet upgraded to T5) Fight lasted just under 6 minutes.

Mob parsed in at 1,076,482 HP. Min Hit 541(bash), Max Hit was 3,932, Average Hit 1,663. DPS was about 808 but it was very spikey.

I didn't see any spells I didn't resist with 650 in everything. Her dps was very spikey so despite the dps being only 808 the merc burned a lot of mana on blast heals. If you could see the damage graph from the fight it looks like an earthquake on a seismograph. Her regen is very high, so towards the end of the fight after I had burned all my discs I had a hard time bringing her down the last 5 or 6 percent.

Setting an audio trigger is a great option ' A muffled roar echos in the distance ' (I set it up to Peter Griffin saying "What the **** was that?" just for a cheap laugh). It's a pain, but the haste clicky is well worth the effort, in my opinion.


Quick stats

Min Hit - 541
Max Hit - 3,932
Avg Hit - 1,612
HP - 1,000,000

High resists make the AE's negligible. Spikey DPS. If you're doing this by yourself either burn hard or settle in for a long fight.

I can confirm she pops around pos 450, neg 60, pos 700.

She's not as scary now as she once was and I was able to take her out with my Monk and a T5 cleric.

Funny thing was right as she died she respawned again. So I killed her twice in a row and got 2 scales.

Killed her today on my server. 85 Rogue 900 aa's (mostly in offense, nearly no defense aa's), and 25+ AC augs. T5 healer on reactive and 85 shaman, brought just for slows(which resisted alot at first), listlessness and lynx procs. Fight lasted all of 4 mins, burning thru frenzied, deadly presicsion and kinestetics.. Shaman is box with 22k mana and 500 healing aa's. She got me down below 30% one time and spot healed with shaman, but shaman was mostly procs for the fight. Didn't use shaman's gimpy pet either. Spawned at 12am game time as stated below, with the zone wide emote. GL!

Edited for crappy spelling and had pm, stead of am =D OH yea, the rogue and shaman both SoD T5 gear, nothing impressive.

pops here.. and a few places around here, but you can see her pops from here.

She depops, pops .. REALLY fast .. i'd say 1 minute per, 2 minutes tops, then pops again around that loc

edit

incidently, an 85 necro with T5 merc has no bloody way of soloing this thing. For one thing, every time i stood from feign, she ignore pet immediately and ate me. She doesn't summon. But I thought I was rooted, that's how bad the slow movement proc is.

I got her to 97 percent.. then 100.. then 98.. then 100.. then 99.. then 100.

Her regen is insane. Then again, I could only cast at max 1 dot before she took off 20k or so. And I have max defensives. WOW .

New to this zone I decided to work on all my illusions. So far as an 85 bard with better then Teir 5 armor and 32k hp with max aa! I thought Ill give this guy a shoot with my little merc as I been doing fine for all the other mobs of this era.. but none have been level 70, 67 yes but not 70. I wipped quick and didn't even get it down any. was like my merc didnt even get a heal off..

lol So... Now waiting for it to spawn again... I have my 85 necro, 85 warrior, and my bard which are all set up and ready with their teir 5 mercs. Does pop right on top of the hill across from the docks with the magus. Nothing in the area seem to attack you so easy single.

Zonewide emote when she spawns:

"A muffled roar echos in the distance."

Trying to nail down this spawn is an exercise in boredom, it helped to have an audio trigger to avoid the need to hover at the keyboard once every 72 minutes for days at a stretch.

The alleged 4.5 day respawn timer mentioned in a post below is misleading, and the 3-day claim is outright incorrect. I think a better approximation of respawn would be 5 days +/- 12 hours. For me, the time elapsed between the last two consecutive spawns was 5 days 9 hours. The kill prior to that was a few minutes short of 5 days. Zone /uptime is at 18 days at the moment, so during this timeframe there has been no outages which may have reset the spawn timer.

5 days - 12 hours would be .......... HMMM 4.5 days. The timer Loafy supports is correct, now granted that I have noticed there does appear to be a spawn window associated to this mob. Specifically the mob will not respawn before 4.5 days minimum (by what I have also observed over the years), but it may definitely have up to a 12 hour timer beyond that time frame; as I have camped the mob on the 4.5 day timer only to have her spawn on the 5th day. Regardless the point is that if you set your timer for 4.5 days after the last known kill you cant go wrong.

And 5 days + 12 hours is not 4.5 days. As you also have experienced a respawn delayed until into day 5, I am not sure what you are whining about. Seems you still need to work on that telling time correctly stuff.

Incorrect. As she always pops at the midnight hour, her respawn timer has a variance. If her respawn was a fixed 4.5 days, and she was killed at 1am, then she would respawn at 1pm. Obviously, she only spawns at midnight. She is not a fixed 4.5 day respawn.

I killed CBQ today, I'd seen her when I was level 50 something long time ago.. Never again till today after camping her for 2 weeks or so.

level 85 Warrior. 33Kish and 5800AC at the time I'm guessing. I used a 2h Pierce on her and a Merc for heals.
Didn't slow her, Didn't kite her. ( some folks have led me to believe if you move her around as you fight it negates some of her Insane regen)
She had 1.2 million HP hit me for an average of 1200 per hit no defensive. Took a little over 7 mins.

She dropped the Scales, Phosphor Bile, and the Flesh.

I've collected the Essence drops from Vexd, have 2 of them. I killed 35 of the undead mobs to get them.

The three drops from the mites you need for the belt are proving difficult. 4 hours in the instance Killing those stonemites. 44 of them dead. no drop yet.
The flagging of that drop as Rare is dead on.. the fact that I need three makes me wish i had better luck! =D

8 / 25 / 08. Overkilled with 4 Toons SK / CLR / RNG / ROG (solteris / SoF geared).
Max hit was 4k but not often at all, a bunch of hits in the 1000's (on 4500AC SK). AE's = nothing to worry about just a lil annoying snare. pretty pretty easy fight

Easily one groupable. We had 7 toons: 75 PAL, MNK, BRD, RNG + bots: (1x CLR, 2x SHM). Mains all mixed geared Ang/DP-TSS. Pal was 15.3k/3.6k ac unbuff at the time. 1st try wiped @ 13% w/6 (one less shambot) due to monkie getting early agro and dying before we began to DPS.

Very much one-groupable post-anguish. Pal + clr-box finished 2nd fight at 89m each. Only one sham-bot was LoM.

Likely doable w/3-4 TSS/TBS geared: (or 5-6 Anguish geared)
Tank, Rog/Zerk*, Shm, Clr. (Add 2 dps if only CoA)
*(assumes zerk has good 2hp)



**edit**-- CBQ doesnt spawn immediately after serverup. Went to find her and 12AM came...then 1AM... no spawn for us. Oh yeah-- 72hr repop +/-. After a kill, she didnt pop on day 2, by day 3 she was back. :)

That would be 4.5 days after killing her
because I have seen her spawn / despawn several times
in a 24hour period while hunting Tureptas.

BTW, since she hits for 4K (3917), next time I brings friends.
