Updated July 25th, 2007

Dyllin Starsine is found in a smuggler camp in Highpass Hold. He is perhaps one of the more camped people in the game due to his posession of a page of Veishell's Tome.

Be warned that the smugglers around him will assist him, if they're within range.

You used to be able to kill him without a problem. Just wait until the smugglers stop wandering and then go at him with all you've got. Now, if you attack him and there's a smuggler so much as across the room, they'll be on you. I didn't bother trying to Harmony them and attack, I was sick of being killed.

Hiya,

I was third in line for this guy, so I helped two others get him beforehand. Which means I saw and timed three spawns. Between the first and second spawn was 6 hours and 20 minutes and between the second and third spawn was 7 hours. I sent myself a message with the EQ mail system so I had a timestamp. The messages are about a minute or so lagged (had to type out the messages and all that).

The guy that was second line told me about a theory where the spawn timer counts down by five minutes until it hits six hours. The above disproves that. Looks like he spawns randomly between 6 to 8 hours of the last kill.

Lastly, he has about 600 hps.

Good luck

I dont know how many hps he has but a 1k nuke took him out in 1sec. I had nothing better to do and will prolly destroy the page. I killed the high lvl smuggler who hit me for 112 tops and around 80. He was easy at lvl60 druid, but i didn't see any xp increase as he conned blue.
thanx

just wanted to say thank you guys for all the great advice! been looking for this guy for a while but i couldn't find the hide out. i chose to bind myself to a safe location, rooted & dotted Dyllin then hid out of sight while i waited. i was expecting to see the tough smuggler and he didn't disappoint me! i just rooted him, backed up & waited for Dyllin to die. i had to root the smuggler a couple of times, but once Dyllin died, i just gated out. np thanks to you!

I got my 32 cleric a couple of cloudy potions so I could get in here ok, searched for 5 minutes to find the water entrance, once there I found this guy, looked around for smugglers like you guys said. I only saw one go by and he was green, and then there was nothing for a minute. I then cast instill on this guy, hit him with two nukes and a stun spell to finish it off. What an easy kill.

watch out when killing this guy, smugglers around him can reach very high lvls, my 32 cleric was just wiped out by one of them, most conned green, but there were a few reds, and one saw me attacking his friend and killed me within 5 seconds
PHers?

Are there PHers we should be killing like the other smuglers? or just have to sit and wait for him to show up?
no

8 hour spawn cycle, no PHs. Spawns 8 hours from the last time he got waxed. Also spawns like all other mobs right after server resets and patches.

He has a 6-8 hour spawn timer, I camped him when I was about 41 and he was easy as hell to take down, just use hide (im DE) or something like that, dont count on invis spells as much because you might be waiting for a while, theres a red smuggler walkin around, watch out for him. He spawns near the forge over by the corner in the yard.
sure u can

Great help!

This has been a great help. i studied the 45+ smugglers movements like someone suggested, got used to his pattern.

Waited around for about 15 mins and he popped. Bout 2 mins later the res smug left for the water. Just as he got round the corner i casted root, then snare, then creeping drud.

Cast 1 nuke (CL) and he broke root. Re-rooted him, Cast 2 more CL and he hit the deck. Looted his stuff and got outta there sharpish...

(On a side note, I dunno how long exactly it took me to kill him, but I would guess around 30 secs, (lvl27 druid), so I was able to get out before the 45+ smug was even back)
Where is he???

I have been checking the smugglers area constantly. I have yet to see him or anyone esle in the area. Am I right that he spawns in the area by the merchant style tent near the oven and kiln, not far from the two rouge trainers in High Hold Pass? Everything I read leans to that and that he is purely on a 7 or 8 hour timer for spawning. Do I need to do anything before to push his spawning? I wanted to get the page from him before I did any of the rest of the quest.
Got my ToV woot! =)
# Jul 05 2002 at 1:18 PM Rating: Decent
Thanks to everyone who posted information on this page -- it was very helpful.

It was a long camp for me (4 hours), and I did have a minor brush with potential camp stealers. They came running right when he popped (one was a 17 ranger, other a warrior. BTW, when exactly does a ranger use a ToV anyway? Surely he needs both hands for max damage right?). Of course the 55 smuggler was standing right there, and they wanted to take the mob 'cause I wasn't swinging yet. I explained why I was waiting and a little rudeness ensued (including a lot about how I didn't know how to play the game hehe), but in a few seconds both the 55 and the ranger/warrior moved on and I was able to take down Mr Starsine no problemo.

I know there are a lot of people in the game who do not respect the time folks put into long camps like this one, but every time they do I am very glad for the consideration of the hours I took out of RL to sit there. Even when the respect is paid with extreme reluctance as in this case.

Lol, time to mow the lawn now!

Hearing all these disturbing stories of how difficult the camp was and stuff... I just got the ToV tonight. This guy for a camp was not that hard. I stuck my 14 druid I had just started a couple days ago in the smuggler camp, logged the druid and came back on with main monk. Starhine wasn't up at the moment, so I sat down (w/o the afk mind you, just for you DIRTY CAMP STEALERS) where Dyllin spawns and went out for a couple hours. Low and behold when I got back, he is up - I kill him when the 50 smuggler leaves, log my druid, and loot the page. Now, the more difficult part for me was trying to raise faction with the erudites... then 2 hrs later, someone tells me that the erudite in Qey will sell it to me for 2gp :P Oh well, just my story.

Does nobody know the spawn time no this guy. Ive seen 5, 6, 6.5, 7, and 8 hours posted. Seems like nobody knows for sure. Any help would be great, thanks.
Why is Dyllin's name wrong on here??

If you'll note, at the top of this page his name is listed as Dyllin StarsHine, but in reality, as the accompanying screenshot clearly shows, his name is actually Dyllin Starsine. No "H" involved. Me and a few guildies got into an argument over what his name actually was last night and so I went to camp him to see if it hadn't been changed since the time I camped him and got a screenshot of him, since he's listed here as Starshine. Fortunately he popped in no more than 15 minutes, better than the 5 hours I had to wait for him the other two times, and it was still Starsine. Sure Starshine does sound better and makes more sense, but that's not his freakin' name, so gee, fix it on here already! :)

Wow, do we feel better posting about some petty sh*t? how about you list some strategies to help others rather than gripe when you can just e-mail Iylia with the discrepancy. BTW I have killed him 2 times in the last 2 days on bertoxx and it has been a 6.5hr Re-spawn..hope this helps..

Not to hard
# May 15 2002 at 8:52 PM Rating: Default
Yeah I was camping him with my lvl 25 druid to do the Testament of Vanear quest. It's easy to get to his little "nook" there and I just bound in there. Problem was everytime I gated back there he was either camped or not poped. so... one early sunday morning I logged on and was about to start playing my lvl 25 Bard when i decided to check on good only Dyllin. Well low and behold he was there. So I just rooted him and casted Pognip on him. Bad Idea. He risisted all 3 so then the root wore off. Lucklily I had snared him and then I just nuked him till he was dead. A helpful ranger whacked on him too so he wasnt that hard. Just watch the lvl 40+ smuggler don't argo on you. and BTW the Testamanet WELL worth the trouble. 10 wis that you can get for practicaly nothing is well worth my time. Now I need a new tunic. Anyone got any suggestions a lvl 27 druid could get post it.

I fought him twice, once to help another druid get the page, then 7 hours later to get the page for myself. Highest he hit for was 24 I think, but usually from 10-17. I don't remember well enough to say for certain.

Don't know his HPs but at lvl 22 it took about 30 seconds to solo him, he must have around 300-400 maybe? Used stinging swarm and a few careless lightnings to put him down.

One other note about the lvl55 smuggler in that area- sometimes he will not follow the usual path, instead he will just walk back and forth across the clearing where Dyllin spawns. If that happens, wait for Dyllin to start walking around, and harmony the lvl55 smuggler, and also harmony the smuggler closest to the end of the path to the water. Dyllin will walk down that path and stop at the water's edge.

Once he is there just root him, DoT him, and snare him. Hammer away with DDs. He broke root once in each battle, be ready to recast root if he does. It should be a short fight if you're lvl 19 or higher. You can also DS yourself in case you need to melee a bit.

The spawn is seven hours.. ACKKK!
What a nightmare!

Its worth it tho for a +10 wis item.

but since we are druids we have anoher option...

Bind at his spawn site.

( if you are coming from Kith go over second wooden bridge and down ramp.. then jump in the water and swim left thru tunnel... come out in secret smugglers hideout.. go up till you come to center clearing Dylin spawns near the spit under wooden canopy )

then just gate in there from time to time and eventually you'll get lucky.

other tips are:

wait till red con smuggler "wandering dork" goes around the corner. once he does you have 1 minute 30 secs to kill Dylin before he returns and kills you for beating on his little buddy.

Root him so he doesnt get help! and blast way! melee when your oom and if you need to run away go up ramp and jump off wall..then lessor succor or run yer but off or.. if your ld enough port!

maybe you should plan an ecape route first... scope everything out.. dont worry you'll have time.

Good luck
