He Still spawns and drops both cloak and bag as of 4-22-10

I am an old school bag collector, and any character I play must have a large soiled bag. Its just a preference to days gone by.

First a couple things about Guano.

1 - He pops in Bats near the pounding stone. Up the path from the stone trap is a bat in an alcove. To the immediate right is a path that leads into a little room with 2 bat spawns. Guano will pop right in this area.

2 - He immediately invis's himself and while the bats will aggro you if your standing around, Guano will NOT.

3 - Guano roams, so if you dont kill him on spawn, he will roam around and unless you track you will not know he is up.

My guide to camping him.

1 - If you have the plat to fund it. Just park yourself and your merc right in middle of bats. If your relatively high enough (I was 60) your merc will just kill them and you ignore them.

2 - Set up an audio trigger with the phrase "Guano Harvester" as he casts invis right upon spawning. Set it very loudly and you will know when he pops. This leaves you to do other things in RL like work or laundry.

3 - When your trigger goes off, RUN ! KILL ! LOOT !...then if bag drops..gate away very happy 8)


In any event. I camped the Guano not knowing if he was still around as it had been a few years since I needed one.

I camped him yesterday and today for a total of about 13 hours. I was beginning to think he had been taken out of game, but he finally popped the first time about 9 hours or so into it.

He gave me his old cloak (the rare drop I was NOT wanting). Sooooo back to a camping for it. About 3 hours later he popped again and dropped my new bag! Happy days.

For those of you wondering why I find his bag so useful its because it holds lots and lots of ORE. It may be small item bag, but ore is tiny/small and fit nicely in it.

That and not many folks running around have old school stuff like the bag. Its a nice link item / conversation piece.

Running around Sol B with some alts last night 9/10/06. This guy was up and dropped the soiled bag. Being small items only kind of sucks, but I guess he's not going to scoop the **** in a giant bag.

I dropped this guy this morning & all he had was a "large bag" with no weight reduction. I will kill him again & see if he no longer drops the soiled bag.
easy

Was farming a while back and doing AA's at the entrance to the bat area when this guy jumps me. Very easy kill. no prob for a 55 pally. He dropped the bag which i have since used frequently for farming ore. If he would have left me alone i would have never known he was there LOL!
Didn't know this guy exisited

Bad news, these servers are very small. Word of ninja looters does get around and people do get reputations. And once you got a rep, if you are lfg, the first topic of conversation is: No, I dont think we want that guy, he ninja looted on me last month and logged.

The fake LD also doesn't work. If you go LD only once a night, everyone knows what happened if you go LD 15 seconds after looting a good drop or before paying for an MQ.

Trivial loot still apply?
# Apr 30 2002 at 3:04 AM Rating: Default
I thought they did away with trivial loot code entirely. Do you still have to be low level for him to drop items?

Thought so too. Actually its not right. The bag at least is not magical and dropped for us, even though he was very green.

No, he'll drop items regardless of level, they did away with trivial loot code (although I don't think it was ever present in this zone). However I think there is still trivial loot code on Firiona Vie server (roleplaying server) so you'd have to be low level on that server.

He probably pops visible, then casts invis on himself... this is how how a lot of 'invis' mobs do it...

just an FYI
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 21 2002 at 11:52 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Could i sit with my 45 ranger and camp him or would bats aggro? Only hunted kobolds and naggy himself in the lair.

A guy came into Sol B a couple of weeks ago and was going to hunt this guy. If you are going to go after him the best way is to get yourself a map of Sol A and come in the zone that is right behind where he spawns. The zone is pretty deep in Sol A but it is alot easier than fighting your way to him like that poor monk was trying to do.
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 17 2002 at 3:30 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hehe was sitting down in Bat 1 trying to ding 53 soloing bats... Mend failed and I was filling out a bug report. When I came back, there he was sitting right in front of me! (Non invis too) whacked him quick, now I have 3 100% wt red bags, woot! (on dragon bag, one tink bag, and one soiled)

How Can a Monk See Guano?
# Feb 12 2002 at 6:40 PM Rating: Default
I have been trying to hunt this guy for some time. I have used Bracer of the Hidden (See invis effect: triggered, and the Qeynos badge of honor (untriggered see invis effect) and I still cannot see him. Am I bugged or am I doing something wrong? Let me know please.

well, I'm not sure if he was just bugged on the day that I went to farm him, but I had the same problem with my monk, so I brought in my druid to track him.... he tracked to waayyyy over by king room walking back and forth.... so either he's a wanderer, or, as I say, was bugged at that point... I'll update when I get more info

Level 25?!

Speaking of Firiona Vie and trivial loots. Was in there just an hour ago and Guano boy showed. Anyhow we cleared a path to him and had a 24 druid self port into lava and showed her in. Path cleared, drew him down to her....he was LIGHT BLUE to a level 24 druid. So he is by no means level 25 and yes in this zone, on this server it is very difficult to actually have someone come in and get this that is low enough to do it. He dropped the bag.

I am lvl 43 warr, was in King room and my cleric heard Guano casting a spell. Got a see invis and went on a mad rush to find him. Found him in the bat room near the chomping stone 2 or 3 rounds and he took off running. Was gonna keel him even if he ran straight to Naggy hehe. Few more hits ded, got the bag. woulda luved the cloak though
Tracking
# Jan 25 2002 at 5:06 PM Rating: Default
It says here that he spawns invisisble, I've never tried to find out, but does tracking work for invis MOBs?

#mallorian, Posted: Jan 20 2002 at 5:58 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ive seen and killed the GH many times he is not as rare as you'd think unfortunatly i have yet to see this cloak drop and any melee class below 45 you will die if you attack him but should be able to kill him and loot before the ldcs/bats take you down make sure to have a bag slot open for quick looting ive lost several bags because i was dead before i had time to get it so moral is root him or else you hit him a few times and he takes off down the lefthand hall in bnb, even if you didnt have aggro on you before youll find something ) or if your camping bnb hes yours )

spawning
# Dec 06 2001 at 6:32 PM Rating: Default
this is actually a VERY rare spawn. on the other hand, it is completely (rarely) random, so he could spawn twice in 10 minutes, or he could spawn once in a wekk. completely random
