King Xorbb

In Beholder's Maze, the Gorge of King Xorbb: King Xorbb does indeed exist, albeit rarely and only briefly. He is rumoured to be found at the Altar where his lords Sviir and Syrkl can be found --though many believe this rumor to be false in that sightings of him being a roaming NPC are more typically reported in the last 10 years. His Slime Crystal Staff is possibly used as part of a quest which exists in Najena (is used to make the Blued Two-handed hammer). The Orb, Sphere, and Circle fitting names for things as round as eyes...

In the Valley of King Xorbb: King Xorbb is the main encounter in the event "The Return of King Xorbb" (see this quest entry for the group version and this quest entry for the raid version).

So around 23,000 muddites/goblins/minotaurs/eyeballs later we finally got King Xorbb to pop after almost 5 days straight of sitting in the zone. At this point I have no idea how his spawn mechanic worked as everything I tried to "science" it fell flat. In the end he popped somewhat near Runnyeye and then began pathing west where, in my excitement, I accidentally killed him before getting a screenshot Smiley: oyvey .

Godspeed to all you brave hunters that go seeking this Eyeball. I thought Dunedigger was going to be the hard part of these achivements and boy was I wrong.
eye see you...

yellow m&m - "he does exist..!"

spawned after 60+ hours running in circles working on runnyeye faction.

Trick was to play Billy Idol's "Eyes Without A Face" on repeat until spawn.

Found him today near Runneye zone. Dropped the Ring and Staff, and minor coin. Double faction was in effect, King Xorbb, -14, Pickclaw Goblins +2, Clan Runnyeye +2. He cast Spector Lifetap, Beholder Dispell, Lightning Bolt and Instill. Less than 1000 hp, grey to level 71.

Updated, thanks. Welcome to the elite club of those that have slain a non-fabled, original level King Xorbb!

I decided to work on some Slayer achievements in the Gorge (Muddites and Goblins) and parked my Beastlord with his pet near the entrance of Runnyeye, where a lot of the mobs path past. With a little help from my G15 keyboard ( it just mashes the Cycle Target and /pet attack macro continually), I just left him there for a while. The first time I went to check again, he had just killed Brahhm, a rare Minotaur so I was able to still loot his horn. Nice! Then I ran around for a while in the gorge and immediately encountered Qlei, the rare named Muddite (no special loot). After that I left my BL on auto again and dis something else for 2 hours. I came back and decided to check my eq.txt log and looked for the phrase Attacking King Xorrb from my pet; and there it was........ but the corpse had long poofed already. There also was another encounter with Brahhm in that log.

After that I went to hunt in Dragonscale for a bit, used my lesson and then decided to do a little more Xorrb and achievement hunting in the Gorge. So I translocated to West Karana (friendly Wizard), ran through East Karana and zoned into the Gorge. And the first thing I see is a large Evil Eye all alone....... King Xorbb! The first time I have seen him in all my time in EQ, which dates back to the release in March 1999. And he dropped bothe the ring and the staff! I was so exited, I love these encounters with rare NPCs. And now I have decided to get the other 3 staffs too, and get that Blued Hammer. This is what makes EQ still fun for me: find small, fun goals that will get me all over the map, preferably to old zones, get a taste of the Old lore and revisit old locations where so many memories linger. Sol A, Permafrost, here I come!

Thanks for listening. :D

Rare Staff

If your are camping him for staff I just want to give a heads up. He has about 9 or so PH and his staff is his RARE drop by that I mean he was killed 24 times before it dropped once. This drop is about a 20 hour camp most of the time and you'll need a tracker. Also mob is level 35 not 25 and has normal hp (class Wiz) Good luck!
Oh to kill Xorbb

I've played for over 10 years now and still make random trips to this zone in hopes of one day killing...**** seeing Xorbb.

This guy is right up there with favorites like Gynok Moltor, Rahotep, and other rares of this ilk. Just thought I'd give Xorbb some love since its fabled time again...still no dice here.

/agree with IksarMonkman

The loc mentioned in this thread is not exactly correct. it may be one of the spawn points, but not the only spawn point.

I killed King Xorbb today for the first time. He spawned in front of the Runneyeye zone in. I tracked him the moment he spawned.

To anyone hunting around killing everything in the zone with a toon that can track. He should pop... eventually
Just Killed Him

The article from RPG expert is gone, but basically it tells you to camp at LOC +940, -65*. My pet killed him before I could even Alt-Tab back to EQ and see what I killed. I think I put about 20+ hours into it over three days.

I believe this is one of his spawn points because he did not have a pet with him (in other words, I aggroed him before he had time to summon a pet, his first OOC action).

He spawned shortly after an emergency patch (2 1/2 hours), but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.

*Basically, +940, -65 is a spawn point for mobs. After you kill enough, a "special**" mob will cycle in. King Xorbb is a rare on on that list of rare mobs.

Just killed him again on 5-17-9. He spawn right after two other special mobs spawned in a row (Yymp the infernal & Qlei). It happened about 2 or 3 days after a new patch.

Just Killed him today Apri 16th 6:30PM, he was way across the other side of the zone from his alter, so if you are camping him dont always stay in one Place, though most of his Place Holders pop at throne.

after 2 years of login in & checking track list, King Xorbb was up. Server was up for only 4 hours, all the named eyes were up along with 2 evil eyes. King Xorbb was pathing on the west side of zone towards the Karana zoneline.

He dropped his Slime Crystal Staff and Ring of Xorbb.

Excellent link there. I may have to find Xorbb myself.

I like his point that it's not about the loot, it's about finding an EQ legend.
Anyone seen this mob recently please???

I have spent way too much time in the gorge. I have killed all the other named (except Qlei) multiple times. I can't seem to get a King Xorbb.

I came here wanting the Slime crystal staff... now I want a screenshot of me standing over a Xorbb corpse.

While not recently in respects to your post, I did enter the gorge today to find King Xorbb up. Since reading old threads on this mob will lead you into many theories I will state what I saw:

-server and zone had only been up for 2 days.
-King Xorbb was near the top of the track list (for recent spawning), both named Evil eyes that spawn near the "thrones" were up and deeper in the track list (note, track list looked like it was untouched from server down as the evil eye pets were all clustered near the top of the list)
-King Xorbb was wandering down the middle path right behind a regular evil eye spawn.

Everytime I have found him in the last 6 months or so, I have found him on the first right turn headed to the throne, wandering towards the exit.

I head to the maze sometimes when I'm bored. I see King Xorbb every now and again when I go there. Saw him there yesterday and woot! It was the fabled King Xorbb! Will be sending picture of the loots to allakhazam soon. Didn't see it listed with the rest of the fabled.

I've personally seen him one time on May 25, 2003.

Me (lvl 46 at the time), was camping Evil Eyes for money, when i hit track and saw an evil eye on track not by tha altar. So i huntedh im down, he was in the northwest part of the zone, killed him easily. Then hit track again, another evil eye was up, away from altar, tracked him down near to the northernmost passage at an intersection. Killed him with ease too. I'm on my way back to the altar when i run right into an evil eye. I target him and notice it says King Xorbb. So i kill him, hes not too much harder than the other evil eyes, did try to charm me several times, however. He went down without me losing much hp. Dropped the slime crystal staff, a flame agate, and a few pp.

I can confirm he pops back to that date, but i have not seen him since. I hope this helps some..

Alright, I've spent DAYS in this place hunting for this guy, to no avail. I walk in with my 53 wiz and AE the whole place hoping to see him pop, but he never does. Is there somewhere specific I should be looking? A certain mob that needs to be killed, or one that needs to remain spawned for him to pop? All the posts here hint that he could pop around EK zone, RE zone, or the alter.....
Any help?
I'll just keep cooking the gorge till he pops regardless, but if you got another clue then fill me in.

With my level 30 ranger? I have been slaughtering everything else in the zone and all except one NPC are green to me. I have been collecting all the nice gemstones Sviir and Syrkl drop when they die and making a killing and they aren't much trouble at all, even when they manage to fear or mez me, they can't hurt me much, so id Xorbb a lot stronger than they are, or is he just as easy to kill?
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?
Saw him 2day
