These 3 spawns are about 30 minutes.... This is the second time I've camped this mob but it is very frustrating to get him to spawn but just keep with it...
Is it worth it?

Well, just to let you all know. I spent 2 days in Lguk waiting for him, trying everything from killing PH to not killing PH and neither seemed to help.
Although just about to give up and going to after the next spawn, he popped.
Anyway, good luck to anyone else who tries this quest, I never did it my first time around when I was getting all my Ivy armor, figured I would give it a shot now.

I just spen a 12 hour marathon waiting for this ******* to spawn, and he still hasn't. Taking a 20min break inbetween spawns to search the web for some info on why it is taking so long. Two FBSS have dropped already today in Lower Guk, and no Slaythe! Maldyn was easier than this! I've used cannable's tips on getting him to spawn 3 times in an EQ day instead of 2, clearing all 3 spawns at 10AM and 8PM but still no Slaythe:( I pray this quest is not broken and that I haven't wasted an entire day on this. Gonna continue a couple more hours till I get tired. But if I go to bed tonight without wearing my Ivy Etched gauntlets, I'm just gonna say ***** em and stay with my banded gloves. This is some really f*cked up sh*t!

I've been reading this board over and over again, trying to figure out the trick to getting him spawn, but in the end I went with the tried and true method of just killing until something pops. I didn't time it, but after infiltrating Lower Guk and making my way to the room in question, I disposed of the greater minotaurs waiting there (at the expense of my faction but oh well) and about 20-30 minutes, maybe less, Slaythe the Slayer spawned. He was 35th at the time, and as mentioned elsewhere, an easy kill for his level, if you're comparing him to the much stronger minotaurs of the same level. He spawned in center, so it may not be necessary to kill all three minotaurs. Good journey, and may Tunare bless your path.

Walked through upper and lower Guk the other day. Never killed a Froglok before and did not then, being interested in getting Slaythe and getting out without being aggroed. Was waiting for the mino to despwan, when a 56 ranger showed up. We cleared the room, I could not have done it myself, and Slaythe was the second pop. Conned red to me, so he is definitely higher than 13. Three minos in room and same location as described in previous posts. Also, a wandering Froglok Guk Guard came into the room every so often, estimate every 15 minutes, so it would be a hard room to solo.

According to what I've been reading Slythe is approx lvl 30. I guess I'll know if he cons white to me when I go visit him =)

Here's how I managed to loot Slaythe the Slayer and get Broken Bow Part B.

First, I had never killed a Froglok and so I walked right through Upper Guk and then entered Lower Guk (Live Side) without any problems. I entered Lower Guk on the Live Side Setup Area (number 4 on EQAtlas map).

I proceeded to the room at the dead end of an "S" shaped hallway north of the Jail room (number 7 on EQAtlas map). No Slaythe the Slayer, but one of the minotaurs was in the room.

Next, a friendly ranger (about level 51) who was camping the Three Mino Room and Mino Patriarch Room (numbers 5 and 6 on EQAtlas map), cleared the room with the minotaur placeholder.

Immediately Slaythe spawned and the same kind Ranger pulled him to room 5 and killed him for me.

The total camp was maybe 20 minutes. I realize that I was incredibly lucky. I am posting just to confirm that the minotaurs are PHs for Slaythe and that Slaythe spawns in the room at the "S" shaped dead end north of the jail (-200,+300 on EQAtlas map).

Error correction. The room at the "S" shaped dead end north of the jail is -200, +800. Not what I typed earlier.

Just to help avoid some possible confusion here - the coordinates are pos 800, neg 200. The north-south coordinates are the ones that are displayed first when you do a /loc.
spent last week in that area and heres what i learned

he spawns in the dead end room between the jail and raster area

neg200 pos800 is the exact loc on EQ atlas map

top number is neg200 side number is pos800

he is on the same exact spawn cycle as raster is . meaning if you kill him at 10am & 8pm then when his spawn pops at 5/6am let that one despawn at 8am you will have 3 chances per EQ day for him to spawn.
if you kill his PH at different times than 10am & 8pm his spawn cycle will be goofey sometimes only spawning once per day

Yeah, I saw Slaythe the other night when I went in with a friend to get EE bags. He was exactly where the EQAtlas map describes, in the dead-end room just north of the numbered location. He was in the middle, with a Greater Minotaur on either side. I had him on tracking, but it took several minutes to get to his location from the EE ledge. I didn't have a map printed out, so I had to wander around until I found him.

I also know why he's so rare. He poofed, right before my eyes. Gone. I was just rebuffing for the pull when it happenned. I thought it was a lag spike. It wasnt :-(

As it turns out, Slaythe or his PH (the middle minotaur) poofs at 8AM EQ time, every day. Then, at 9AM, he is replaced. So, it's at least theoretically possible to sit and wait through cycles until Slaythe pops. But for some otherworldly luck, this could take a long, long time. It's much faster to kill the PH, if you can, and use LGuk's 29 minute respawn cycles.

I tried to solo this room, but I died (lvl 40 ranger) trying to break the spawn. Grasping Roots is terrible at holding Minotaurs in place. With help from some EE campers, I was able to get the spawn partially broken, but was driven out when a roaming frog joined in against one of the minos.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to break this room as a solo Ranger? I just can't see any way to do it.

slaythe spawn's near a spawn for the monk epic. can't remember his name r something.whatever it was it was in the minotuar elder room.i saw him on track and mentioned it to someone i was talking to. he told me a monk was camping near there and might kill him for me. i'm just a level 30 druid so i couldn't exactly go in there and get him myself. so i figured why not. watch out though there are shammy's in adjacent rooms who like to chain heal, so don't pull him from the room too far. my suggestion is just track the ******* buy keep a wary eye on where you are going.
Killed him last night
# Jun 30 2001 at 5:01 PM Rating: Default
Slaythe the Slayer is a froglok of melee class, and I believe his spawn is completely random, though more common than the other part of this quest, Maldyn the Unkempt. Slaythe is not lvl 13 as some guides suggest. He was blue to me at lvl 34, but was still incredibly easy to kill. Find a map of the zone and look on the live side for the dead-end "S"-shaped hallway just north of the jail cell room. Go to the room at the end. After 3 hours last night of camping the room and killing the greater minotaurs that spawn in the room (and act as placeholders for Slaythe), I said something to the effect of "this damn frog's taking his sweet time". Immediately after I said that, he spawned =) I had another ranger with me so we rolled for it. I won the roll and looted the bow, but I'm going back tonight to help him get the broken bow part again. It didn't take as long as I've heard, you just have to be in the right spot. Now I get to go hunt down Maldyn, and once I get that part, I'll have a full set of ivy etched! Figures I save the most rare spawn for last... And don't be fooled, the gauntlets are great resist gear for raids.
He Doesn't Exist
# May 11 2001 at 8:41 AM Rating: Decent
I have spent well over 30 hours in Lower Guk in the Room Mentioned and the entire jail area and I have yet to see Slaythe. I'm pretty much convinced at this point that he does not exist and it but a legend

Spoiler, I solved the puzzle. The low down is Slaythe the Slayer is not an undead frog he is a live one. He isn't rare it is just that people never figured out where to actually hunt. I put together some half right posts and solved this mystery on a hunch. Slaythe first off is not the one in Misty thicket. Some idiots will tell you that. He does not spawn in some general area around the jail and Patriarch. He spawns right in the three minotaur spawn room that is to the left as you are goin into the jail. His place holder is one of those Minotaurs(was center one for me, don't know if it varies cause i saw a few regular frogs spawn from the one on the left) He might wander around the areas mentioned in other posts, but why try to catch him wandering when you can make him spawn and kill him on the spot. he gave me xp at lvl 41 so he is not lvl 12 or 13 like the info above stats. He was blue to me. If you dont believe me. Hunt that room for a bit. Just that room. I think you will be very happy with the results. Once I figured it out I got the part very fast.... have fun

I wouldn't say it's that easy, I spent 4 - 5 hours in the Room just north of the Jail area at the end of the S Shaped Tunnel and slayeth didn't spawn, other froggies did, but not slayeth. I'll be heading back tonight or tomorrow.

So other people know, I (Level 35) brought a 44 Druid and 49 Necro and we had to Evac out of the Mino Room. I'd recomend bringing at least a full group as the 3 minos plus the roamers could prove to be a problem. Hope this helps

You are able to take and hold the room with a 41 Ranger (yourself) and a 51 Necro with no problems... ok if the Necro goes LD right before the Minos Spawn bad things can happen, but other than that it's do able. Still no sign of Slayeth in over 24 hours of camping time.

Thank you for the information, I have the first part from Maldyn now I'll head to Guk. Thanks again from a Ranger that will soon be standing proud and tall in a full set of Ivy Etched...

This guy spawns in the frog king's room near the throne, he can be a very large large range of levels, if rangers just want the bow par, kill him and jus port out to innothule entranc behind the throne.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 03 2000 at 8:17 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I heard that his spawn was broken and he cant be reached to be killed now for some reason is this true or was someone just blowing smoke?
In Misty ..

The Slaythe in Misty does NOT drop the Ranger bow part for the Ivy Gauntlets - you have to go to Guk for that.

He conned yellow to me in Misty Thicket, so I grouped with 3 other people and took him out. Quite strange considering I am a level 11 rogue huh?

Slaythe also pops up in Misty Thicket as part of the Avenger Battleaxe quest (Kaladim) and is spawned by speaking to the Halfling Bronin Higginsbott at the Wall (need faction). In Misty he is L20 to 22 (hits above his level like Dorn, DVinn etc) and worth quite a decent amount of experience (I made L23 to 26 in about ten hours just on him).

He was around 30ish, I think. Still blue to mid-high 30s, aand wasn't particularly hard for his level. Placeholder is a greater mino, in the 3 mino-deadend room in the Eastern side of liveside maze, roughly ne of pat or south of elder.
