Caves and straight in, near backwall of largest room. 85 SK, 80 WIZ, healer, and tank merc OVERKILL. No chest spawned even though epic looter did the looting. Hobgoblin cons DB to 80 WIZ (dropped rune) and there was a LB named bat in front of him that summons (dropped nothing) but overall it was a piece of cake.

Took this one down for the rune tonight, with a group including an 80th SK and wizard; he fell easily one good solid group is all you need to put this named in the dead book. The information here is correct, he is to be found straight back in the caverns.

Dropped the rune and nothing else; chest did not spawn.

Ok guys,

When you enter into the caves head STRAIGHT back ... the actual loc is pos4500, NEG500, ... when you hit the fork, just head straight back .. will be on right wall.

He hits me being a 75 Zerker 3k AC for 1164 at most. He enrages not snareable, rootable, or stunable. Took him down with a 68 BST healing me

I'm gonna go down there with a small group, and to avoid having to slaughter our way from one cave to another, would be nice to have the spawn location.

I see on the map, when you enter the hobgoblin caves, there are 3 large caverns relatively close to each other if you go west, then one north, and one to the east.

Which does he spawn in?

once at the "fork in the road", take that north, by north east cave, he's in the back.

if you hug the wall, you can get right to him.

we used a pet to eat the HT, but he handed us our LPWs this evening.

No Chest Loot

So I read up on this fight, and check the notes posted about his chest loot:

Quote:
Ok guys... just thought I would post on here to confirm for ya... Yes a chest spawns after this encounter... but only if a wizard loot's the epic piece during the progression of his epic 1.5 task... if you follow Talwyn's story text the proper order is: Girplan Guardian, Elite Sun Revenant, Hobgoblin Horrorfiend, Pure Flame Elemental, and Mistress of the Darkwater... doing them out of order will guarantee no chest spawn... and you MUST have gone through the story text with Talwyn in which you ask about all the fluxing items he was telling you to collect.


All text was done, kill GG then ESR, went after HH last nite. No chest spawn, and the wizard was the first person on the corpse.

Did the fight with a single group. EP/Time geared.

1 Warrior 13k HP, 2560 AC
1 Shaman
1 Druid
1 Cleric
1 Rogue
1 Wizard

The HH has a good chunk of HP, so a wizard can inevitable burn their manapool early in the fight.
Yet a few well placed 15k crits can speed it along. Oh yeah, concussion was rarely resisted. So can go to town, and burn this to the ground.

Melee is weak, generally 200-400 damage hits with occasional 1000-1200 damage hits. The PBAE is what to watch for, if you don't have high enough resists. Which it is Chromatic, yet the resist check is -350, not -150 as posted above.

As of right now I have Girplan and ESR down and dead... and chest's spawned on each... others will be a cake-walk =)

P.S. There is only myth in the rumor that the fights have to be completed fast enough to spawn a chest. Chest spawns are triggered by the wizard only... so if you didn't get a chest to spawn... most likely they skipped a step somewhere.

Message says it all. 15 man raid, elemental, destroyed Hobgobglin, Wizzy got their 1.5 rune drop, no chest spawned. She said it "could" spawn a chest, but we weren't lucky enough I guess.
Odd that we did 2x pallies' 1.5 Shade of Mujaki runs just before this and both had instant spawned chests as the pallies looted their item. Better luck next time heh. /shrugs

Chest should spawn everytime shouldn't they?. Only thing i can think as to why you wouldnt get a chest is if the wizard is not at that point in time of their epic.. like he skipped a step and wanted to get this piece..

This is probably what happened. This wizzie did not do the Revenant in SD at the time we dropped the goblin.

Skipping steps is the suck :P

I took a couple of groups to go kill him the other day. The AE resist check is wrong, I had over 310 to all resists and never resisted it once.

Info!

Took this guy down last night with 1 group. I was the FIRST to loot this guy and NO chest spawned. I had previously done the Girp Guardian in WoS and a chest spawned, I'm wondering if the chest spawning relates to amount of people it takes to do, to help cut down farming of the chests? Could be a bad assumption, but alas, we did not get a chest. As for this guy, the chromatic 150 resist seems to be off, because we were qvic/tacvi geared with chromatic of 350ish and I personally got hit with all his AE's cept 1 which I resisted. No bard was with us, just natural resists. Was the harder fight out of the 3 1-group fights, but we widdled him down as myself being the only real DPS class present.

I'm not sure if it is still the case, but there was a time limit to the kill for chests. I think they vary depending on the mob however, but if the kill is really slow, then you don't get them, which kind of sucks.

I read that you have to do these things in order, and the person doing the quest has to be the first person to loot the corpse. So if you didn't do the Sun Rev the chest woldn't spawn. Just something I read...

Spawns in the bat cave rather than the hobgoblin caves as you might expect. 4500, 500 approx.

EDIT: No chest spawned for us either. Possibly random, or nerfed...

IMPORTANT: The epic looter has to be the first looter or chest won't spawn. Lots of noobs out there screw themselves by checking the corpse before the epic looter = no chest for joo.
