Brother Zephyl  

Quest NPC
So good to see him all dressed up..

Brother Zephyl in Rathe Mountains wants the Idol of Zan Fi, which is in the possession of Brother Raster, who spawns in the Mino Elders room in Lower Guk. Returning this Idol, plus a red sash, results in a special tailoring pattern.

Brother Zephyl is one of those NPCs who has been tuned such that you are not really supposed to kill him.

PH's: a drake, Maldyn the Unkempt, Hasten Bootstrutter

  • Placeholder is: a drake
  • Respawn Timer: 6 minutes
  • Summons: Yes

So I created a heroic monk and have done absolutely nothing but log in and run him to rathe mountains to get started on 1.0. I have an alt account that has a ranger for tracking that I'm boxing to make killing PH's easier. Ok so I've been camping Brother Z now for roughly 50ish hours broken up into 6 days (still going).

Day 1 - 9 hours x2 Bro Z spawns
Day 2- 9 hours x3 Bro Z spawns
Day 3 - 9 hours x2 Bro Z spawns
Day 4 - 9 hours x1 Bro Z spawns
Day 5 - 12 hours x2 Bro Z spawns
Day 6 - Just started not even an hour in got Bro Z but no robe.

I have yet to see him with a robe obviously since I'm still here. I feel if maybe I am just unlucky in this particular situation but I can confirm he is 100% the rarest of the spawns in the PH rotations. May the struggle end soon but just throwing this out there for anyone about to camp him for Robe, I honestly feel like it would have been easier just to camp Raster.

*Update 1/12/2019*
Day 6 was the most fruitful with 6 Bro Z spawns in 10 hours but no robes
Day 7 one hour in Bro Z spawned and was physically wearing the Robe.

TLDR: Long camp sucked, Robe confirmed still drops 1/12/19 Good Luck

I parked myself at p2130, n2290 (that's at the top of the north/south narrow path from the Feerrott zone)
All PH's and Brother Z path this way.
They are on a 6 minute timer... but be careful, Hasten runs faster and you may miss him as he quickly runs past you if you're not looking at your screen.

Drakes = 57
Bears = 42
Hasten = 12
Mald = 5
Bro Z = 5

No robe yet.

Got him on 5/7/18 after 4-5 hours.
The placeholders were: a drake, Maldyn, Hasten, and a grizzly bear. Luckily the first time Brother Z popped he had the robe on.

Just confirmed the Robe of the Lost Circle still drops off Brother Zephyl as of 01/01/2018. Took me about 5 hours and he was visibly wearing it on his 4th spawn. Very happy alt monk!

As of 3/27/17 the robe still drops. Stay in the narrow pathway that leads to the hill giant area. Track will make it quicker but if you don't have track available the ph's and brother Z will path right by you. There are only 4 ph's, all unique to this cycle. They are a drake, maldyn the unkempt, hasten bootstrutter, and a grizzly bear. You'll see a lot of the drake and grizzly bear, the nameds are rare spawns and seem to spawn about the same percentage of each other. 5 min timer. When robe dropped it was visable on him. When he didn't have it, it was not visable on him. I've done both brother Q and brother Z. Brother Z is an easier camp because ph's are isolated, brother Q is the faster camp because on a 1min timer but harder to isolate ph's. Good luck out there!

Brother Z ph's are a drake, maldyn the unkempt, hasten bootstrutter.
They are on a 5 minute respawn timer not 6
Right after they spawn(which is not in any specific location just around the SE side of the hill giant camp) they all path towards the feerrott area and down through the zone towards lake rathe.
Once you have done the initial task of finding and killing the ph i have found the best spot to sit is next to the biggest tree coming out of the gully into the hill giant camp area, they all path right next to it.

As an edit/update to this i have also noticed as well as others that a grizzly bear is also a ph, the other ph's do not spawn when it does and it goes to the same pathing

Over 20 hours into camp have had Bro Z spawn 3 times so far, no robe yet

Can anyone confirm he still drops the robe as of March 2016?

All for a good camp, but would be nice to know.

Happy hunting!

Update on Brother z's spawn cycle. He will wander the zone on a set path for about 10 minutes. Once he gets back to his spawn point he depops and the cycle starts over again almost immediately.

Still no robe though. about 9 Broz's now

After 30+ hours of camping brother zephyl over the course of a week he finally spawned with the robe.

I did notice that if brother zephyl completes his path of the zone he will return to his spawn and depop. I don't think the others do though. Not going to give you place holder counts or any of that, it is inconsequential.

What matters is that as of March 19, 2016 he still drops the robe. Be patient that is all it takes.

Like many people I recently came back after a long break. As soon as I came back I thought the perfect way to relearn my characters was to finish their epics, especially since defiant gear and mercs were introduced. I got my enchanters epic 1.0 and decided to get my 56 monks.

Oh man, my monk needed just about everything. I started by getting him up to 58, then I researched the crap out of the monk epic. Did not want to go through the hell of headband quests and Raster camping so I thought I'd kill Brother Z here. Camped him and his placeholders (5 min respawns) for a weekend. Had many many a drakes, many Hastens's, and many Maldryn's until he finally popped. Tried to take him down and he tore me up. So I went back to levelling, up to 60, then did aa's until I had about 50.

Went back to camp Brother Z. All weekend I've been killing the placeholders and only had one Bro Z. When he popped he didn't have the robe and conned yellow to my 60 monk, thought I'll try again and gave him a go. Easily took him down this time. Didn't see him again all weekend.

Got up for work this morning (4:40 am EST) and thought "I'll just check on Bro Z real quick." Logged into my monk and about shat myself when I saw Bro Z maybe 20 feet the robe. Well, I took him down, got the robe, and logged.

So yes, he still does drop the robe and a 60 monk with defensive and offensive aa's and a healer merc can take him. Just a pita to camp.

Killed him today at 12:14 AM and he DID NOT drop the robe... He does follow this same path and does spawn on the same random mobs that follow this path...
Painful Farm.

been on this guy for pretty much 13 hours without competition now, would strongly suggest doing the quest, because I have killed about 200more drakes than I ever cared to lol. Still waiting on Brother Z to walk off the mountain in a dress.... /facepalm....

1st--you don't need a druid. Park yourself at the bottom of the hill across from the giant hill(zone in, turn right, run up, giant hill directly in front of you), then just kill everything that paths your way. I spawned him 3 or 4 times this way...he will spawn at the hill and at the valley directly across from zone-in so u may want to run over there and check.
Long camp for sure.

After at least 10 hours...

49 Drakes
23 Hastens
8 Maldyns
and 1 Bro Z.

Wife did quest long way, so she did turnin and got Robe.

To me it seems a easier to do the turnin.

Then again, if your iksar.. hehe

Well, I guess the grass is always greener... 3 blasted monks in a row, ALL in a dress, and still no Bootstrutter...I think it's entirely random. hehe
Might be doing MNK epic 1.0 the long way...

After spending last evening and this morning/afternoon camping this mob, I finally got him to spawn. He was an easy kill for my 62 MNK with a healer merc. No robe, though...

Wierd... after 2 drakes and the Unkempt ranger (forget his name) Bro Z spawned again. Still no robe...
Just got it

Not sure if it's a coincidence, but I've been camping this for months with at least a dozen BroZ kills without robe. Thought I'd try advice lower in thread (which others discredit as coincidence), but I had my monkie in zone while killing drakes and, boom, third pop is BroZ in a dress. Yay for me and good luck to you :)

this guy is the ph for 3 different guys, he is an odd ph though, in the fact that he has THREE different spawn points, but only ONE can be up at a time, all 3 spawn points are on the giant hill, hasten bootstrutter spawns at the northern spawn point, Maldyn spawns in the middlish spawn point, and Brother spawned in the southernish area of the hill, right by the orc camp.

all of them seem to spawn on the eastern(or maybe it was western, which ever side of the hill is opposite of the feerot zone) side of the hill.

i thought it was rather odd that he was spawning on the hill, but was pathing differently each time i saw him spawn, i was running the 6 minute timer, so i know he wasn't pathing that far that fast.

so he is the ph for 3 different named, each named has a different spawn point, and this guy can spawn from any of the 3 spawn points, but only 1 "A drake" can be up at a time however it seems.

this makes for a long camp since the spawn point for brother seems to be the rare one, i was getting hastens ph, maldyns ph fairly often, however the drake that spawned in or around the orc camp on the hill seemed to be a bit rarer then the other 2 spawn points.

so Brother is a rare mob from a rare spawn ph... meh

hope this helps some of you monks looking for the robes...

sorry i couldnt get exact locations, the mob spawns and starts to move immediately, however each one paths differently which is how i discovered the 3 different spawn points and the named associated with them.

also, killed him with my 60 ranger, 8k hp 1.6k ac, was a long fight he ran at 20% or so, resisted everything i had, hit 356max on pe/ca3/cs3/nd3

forgot to add, no faction hits for killing any of the 3 named guys that can spawn from "a drake"
