I was just in the desert, this stone camp respawns very quickly,
With a shadowknight cutting them down ASAP (F8, /pet attack, repeat)
I could loot 3-5 mobs and hear the first repop already attacking.

Had Rahotep spawn 3 times back-to-back but in different places in camp.
Missed him once, then the next cycle was was up. I left him there.

While doing the Desert Crawl quest I got sidetracked in North Ro and spent a couple of levels clearing undead from the ruins. Without intending it, I got Rahoptep to spawn four times and one of those times he had the Scepter. I was only killing three spawn points: the one nearest the tunnel/dune (shown in a picture I uploaded), and the ones just to the north and southeast of that one. All four times Rahotep spawned it was in the same spot: the one nearest the tunnel/dune (pictured). He was an easy fight for my warrior with a healer merc at levels 15-17, and he never aggro'ed any friends to bring with him. Placeholders were all sorts of stuff like skeletons, zombies, decaying zombies, etc. Rahotep spawned near midnight and near noon (game time), but I think that was coincidence.

killed everything around the entrance to the commonlands, so much so that I gained 3 levels, he never spawned. I then killed the parched zombie, and boom, there he was. I was a lvl 18 and he put up a fight ( ranger, no spells) Just be careful because everything can aggro so pull him far away. the time was 7.00 am game so I don't think time is an issue... got ring

Ever since the North Ro revamp this mummy went from an ultra-rare spawn to a typical modern-day "Named" like we see in the newer MMO's like EQ2 and WoW. In other words, go kill undead for half an hour at a single camp and see Rahotep spwane *at least* 3 times, so you can sell his loot on a vendor.

I have played EQ since release, and Rahotep was one of the rare Named that I had never stumbled upon yet. There was a day that I really coveted his sceptre, but the Legend stayed a mystery for me. That is why I immediately bought his sceptre then I found it one day in the Bazaar: purely to finally counts myself the owner of this weapon at last. This was a few months pre-revamp.

Now you will find his sceptre on the vendors in the EC tunnel, by the sackfull.

Nice going, SOE, maybe someday you will re-discover those features that make a Virtual Fantasy WORLD and step away from the loot-hording combat-sims that these games have become.
Still Got one!

Still have two of these Sceptres in the bank, hehe - from a very long time ago. When I got the sceptre, it was a "moderate" item - Kunark had just been released and all, so it was losing it's coolness, but it was still regarded as a "decent" item, lol

Not even sure what they would sell for or why someone would want to buy them, I guess I just keep them around for kicks.. :)

Ran across him tonight while working on the New Newbie armor quest. He took my level 17 monk down to 2%. Too close for me. Didn't drop the Scepter, but the ring is very nice also.
He is OLD SCHOOL

Rahotep is from a time most of you would not know, and can probably not conceive. Imagine that the maximum level is 50. Kunnark what is that? A Mithril 2 Hander is LEET (and worth several thousand plat - and yes several thousand plat is something that takes months and months to obtain).

His 1hb was an ewber item for clerics. The Hammer that Innoruuk was dropping at that time was only 12/35 (and was probably the best in game at that time).

This is just another mob that was rare as heck - and still has the same drops he had 4 years ago. Perhaps someday SOE will update the drops from these mobs since we now have 1hb for clerics that are about 10/20 with stats and for under 1000pp.

Just a few rambling thoughts.....

#Yevun, Posted: Feb 13 2004 at 6:05 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i totally you feel you on this matter. So much h8 on the old world stuff, and yet most never could concieve the idea and value of these mobs at that time. When lammies were 1337 1hs, and prolly one of the best 1hs in the game lmao. Now there are slarg spears, bed clubs, the list goes on for a warrior. Its a joke anymore. EQ has truely gone past the beyond and pushed into the future, an now with these times i think soe should of spent time revamping newp zones...

I never seen this guy on track before. But the other day while running to Oasis, I killed him 3 times in a span of 30-45 minutes so its pretty random. The ring is decent but the scepter is just useless. Again, for such a rare spawn (supposedly), he doesn't drop very good gear.
Stumbled on him accidentally

Today I was running through nro, went there to get zombie skins and get a little revenge on Dornn, and there was a named zombie...Rahotep. I'd never seen him before so I thought hey, maybe he'll drop a zombie skin :-). He conned green and went down quick against my 36 rogue. Dropped the Scarab Ring. It's now for sale in the Bazaar on Tarew Marr...look for Trader Euphorius.

He does not spawn once a year. My bard tracked him and killed him twice. I was tracking some rare mobs such as "a brown asp" and "an orc warrior", "a parched zombie", "a crypt mummy". Suddenly this thing spawned about 2 mins later while farming spiders. Killed him, and he dropped the ring.

The day after I was killing spectres and was going to pass thru NRo to FP to the bank. zoned and saw this guy on track again. hmm I thought I'll kill him. and again he dropped the crappy scarab ring.

RE: Spawn
# Sep 03 2002 at 3:31 PM Rating: Default
Iv read that he spawns only once a game year...random date. Iv tracked and killed him twice, but I spent a TON of time fighting and running through the zone. He is RARE, dont expexct it or try to camp him cuz it aint doable, just be happy when he comes up on track)

Hi folks, Iv tracked him (Yes he IS trackable) and killed him twice. the first time at lvl 16 he dropped the ring, second time at lvl 31, he drops the Sceptre (gave it to my ladies alt baby shammie). Both times it was at night and in the southern end of the zone...once near ruined tower, the second time between about mid way between tower and derv camp.

#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 13 2002 at 12:54 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Bah.... I've killed this guy once, I was soloing dervs at the small derv camp near the Oasis zone line, someone trained this guy on me, I think, because he wasn't there, and then all of a sudden, he was beating the snot out of me... It was a close fight at about 17 or 18 with my wood elf rogue, but I killed him, he dropped the ring... At the time, I didn't know how rare this thing was, so I tried transferring the ring to an alt, the transfer got messed up though, and I lost it and a dragoon dirk both... Oh, well, I wish I'd known how rare this guy was, if I had, I would have just kept the ring myself...
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 05 2002 at 2:36 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I got a question, what does this guy hit for?And is he an undercon?

If anyone on Anyonae Ro server has his sceptre and wants to unload it, give me a tell. I will be on as Aaluman 15 Ranger (almost 16) or Judelin 9 Shaman. I am on almost every night between 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm and during the day around the noon hour (CST). I am also trying to score a runed mithril bracer so........

I have been hunting Rahotep for 2 days now and some peeps wonder if there is a Quest that goes along with the Rings. Will YES i am a newbie right now i have a 19 Nec on the Terris-Thule server. In my newbie stupidity i gave up my Book of Discord to the Priest and well you can figure the rest out!! Ok so after getting an Un-PvP quest from a GM to remove the PvP tagg from my Nec one of the Items i have to get to give to a GM to complete the quest is 4 Scarab Rings......that part of the level 16-18 Un-PvP Quest.

You can always get your book back by asking the Priest of Discord for it.

Re-read his post. He's not trying to get the book back, he accidentally turned in the book and he's trying to get his PvP flag turned back off.
