rja69 gives the following based on Phinigel Sever progression:

1) you need to make sure he, or a PH is not already up and swimming around. This is the toughest part. His PH can be almost anything: alligator, shark, aqua goblin, froglok, or piranha sure about the piranha. Find it and kill it. For me, I found that the gobs would tend to swim west from spawn point then circle counter clockwise. They swim fast, you'll want sow/jboots.

2) once the PH is killed, go to precisely this point: 2046, 749, -49. Adjust your depth so that your clip plane gives you the most distant view, so your eyeballs are right at water lvl.. any deeper and the underwater fog creeps in.

3) Face exactly east.

4) Every 2-3 minutes something will spawn nearby. I believe the actual spawn point is due easy of the point I mention above, but stay where I said and watch due east. Pet up if you have it, or use ranged weapons. Use SHD Track skill (i.e. keep hitting your Tab key, or whatever you have to lock on to nearest mobs) until you lock on to something, then, without moving, kill it (pet or ranged.) If it's not in range then it has spawned due east and is swimming towards you. Wait for it then kill it.

5) I killed everything that spawned nearby, even the stuff that spawns north and south (mainly fish, snakes, and occasional piranha). I'm not convinced that these nearer spawns are PHs, but why take chances?

If you do all the above, Webclaw will eventually spawn due east swimming towards you.

I just camped this guy on Phinny server. Here's how I did it:

1) you need to make sure he, or a PH is not already up and swimming around. This is the toughest part. His PH can be almost anything: alligator, shark, aqua goblin, froglok, or piranha [not sure about the piranha]. Find it and kill it. For me, I found that the gobs would tend to swim west from spawn point then circle counter clockwise. They swim fast, you'll want sow/jboots.

2) once the PH is killed, go to precisely this point: 2046, 749, -49. Adjust your depth so that your clip plane gives you the most distant view, so your eyeballs are right at water lvl.. any deeper and the underwater fog creeps in.

3) Face exactly east.

4) Every 2-3 minutes something will spawn nearby. I believe the actual spawn point is due easy of the point I mention above, but stay where I said and watch due east.

To save you from reading old posts dating back to 2000 with mixed info as to his spawn info, here it is:

Spawns at 2507, 921, -194 (deep underwater by the base of the aviak ramp that also has the flame of innoruuk; on the island east of the Arena ZL).

PH are aqua goblins and aqua goblin shamans.

One of the three (or 4 if it's fabled time) of these mobs will spawn every 4-5 minutes.

Correct info.

If Webclaw or PH isnt killed they take a long swimming trip to Arena area -> SW end of zone -> SE island (walkes up on it) -> back to aviak ramp. Kill any PHs in the water south of ramp untill they start poping at spawn point. There is a bag in water were they spawn so its easy to find.

Well, we were on a run to help our cleric under Lake Rathe. A friend zoned in to help, so I left the underwater tower to bring him down there. When I surfaced, I was getting nuked for 179 and 200. I got scared cause I didn't know what it was or where they were. After running around the aviak island with the huge platform I found him and quickly dispatched him by using melee.
My weapons are fast delay so I think that helped.
Delay 22 primary and 24 secondary.

I did see Webclaw over near the Aviaks just outside of the entrance to the Arena. It was night, so I couldn't see what he was doing, but he was just past the tree on the right of the entranceway that's level with the base of the cliff entrance. In fact, thanks to a high level Druid who blasted him, I now have a Water Crystal Staff. (Its in the bank as my back-up weapon; my weapon of choice is a Smoldering Brand, but I rarely engage in melee)

While camping the 3 spawn tower with a Vah Shir Rogue (who was with me at the Arena entrance earlier and also saw Webclaw there), I noticed Webclaw spawn quite often. He spawns at the base of the tower and climbs up the cliff opposite the tower.

Not quite sure if Webclaw despawns eventually and respawns, or if someone was over at the Arena entrance area (or closer) and was killing him a lot. Didn't think to do an OOC and ask.

He probably just warps a lot on his journey. He seems to have an aqua goblin placeholder who walks the same path over the mountain, kill that and Webclaw should spawn.

he was easy for me. I was sitting right next the the aviak diving board saving the camp for my bro's magician. Then i got nuked for like 200 damage it knocked my hp down 2 bubbles but i immediatly got up and started slashing him with my crystallized short sword and my centi longsword. I kept interuupting him so he couldn't cast even though he has a fast cast rate. After 10 min i finished him off with 2 hp. I think he was a weak one because people said he should have been alot harder. Oh yeah im a fairly twinked warrior with 200str. My warrior is lvl 24

i killed murkclaw with a 19 bard, 19 monk (myself) and a 23 warrior. killed him 3 times in an hour. spawns in the water just before the avviak diving board about every 10mins after he is killed. he has a pretty gnarly cast with super low recast delay, but he runs out of mana pretty quick. to kill him, u need a TON of hp, my friend had 1000 and it still brought him down to 1/8 of a bubble before we killed him. BE CAREFUL
Where is he
# Mar 06 2002 at 11:19 AM Rating: Default
This guy popped virtually on top of me. I was camping the aviak "diving board" - the three aviak spawn on the island. i was medding in between spawns and was awoken by a nuke for like 179 damage.

i was a solo 26 SK and he conned blue - WHAT A CROCK. a harm touch of 270 damage hardly put a dent in this guy and his nukes are real nasty.

don't try and solo him as a tank if you are only 26 - 28 or so. he's tougher than he cons.

but as regards where he is, if you camp the aviak 3 - spawn which you CAN do as a solo 25 - 28 tank. he will show up.
Where is he?
# Feb 23 2002 at 10:54 PM Rating: Default
Today i camped him for a full day in real life. Some people told me to kill the three aviaks by the flame at the top of the steps/tower for him to spawn. Other people told me to kill the whole gnoll camp for him to spawn. And even more people told me to kill the shaman aqua goblin for him to spawn. And other people told me he is a random spawn. FOR GOD's SAKES MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!! I was at lake rathe for ages and he didnt even show up on track!!! WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO GET HIS STAFF!!!! *gasps for air* Enuff said.

I do not know where he spawns but I think its to the north east of the 3 spawn "Tower". Anyways he will walk pass the tower that the three spawns are on and over the mountain behind it. He will then proceed to swim to south end of the Area spawn area and get "stuck" for a bit by a tree. He will then pop back to spawn spot and repeat the journey until he is killed. His phers are aquagoblin shamans and aquagoblins who follow the same pathing. When i camp him I sit by the tree he gets stuck in by Area and killing the aquagoblins that follow the same pathing.

Today I was camping the Hermit in Lake Rathear, he spawns at a hut near N940 2250 and I went after jonah brucker after he was walking away, then I say this Goblin in the water just straight out from the dock where the hermit spawn. I targeted him and I see it was Webclaw Murkwave. He conned red to my necro so I logged in my 30 druid and conned him, he was blue to my druid. I buffed myself with all buffs I had available and med to FM. I snare him and when he walk into the dock I root him and chain nuke him, I had to heal my self since he was nuking me for 179hp, but I was able to kill him, he droped the staff. So my advise is to come and camp the hermit and keep an eye on this nasty gobo. Good luck.

He just killed my friend last night right by the west end of the Aviak Guard camp. There has been a glitch in that area causing the sharks to swim on land as well as making this little one attempt to walk up to a non-reachable area thus he gets stuck next to a tree on the hill. I have been in Rathe Lake for the last three days and have seen him every day. I am on the luclin server.

I had my lower level ranger in the arena guard tower today and he spawned just to the right of the arena opening, down about half way to the beach. He headed directly across the water to the three spawn, wandered around there for a bit, then headed back to the right side of the arena opening. He went back and forth like that for about an hour, at least. There was no one in the zone at the time. That's also the first time I've seen him on track even in the week or so she's been there, so I can't tell you if that's his normal pattern or not.

Good thing I thought ahead and asked a lvl 40 wizard to accompany me, you know, for good luck :) Well, I threw the first nuke, and he threw 3 at 170 damage each.....needless to say the rest of the battle went like that, and my poor lifeless body was eventually left at the bottom of a rocky hill. My my wizard buddy killed him for me, and I got my staff, a gem of some sort, and one other item which I cannot recall. That was at lvl 27, so maybe I will try again soon, now that I am 29 :)

This guy has killed me so many times! Even at lvl 26 with 920hp he nuked me 4 times in a row for 179 and various other nukes for in the 30's. I had him down so probably one more hit would have killed him and he got me!. Why is it that blue cons in LR are so hard? Like the lvl 12 guards that hit for 90's?

Rule of thumb about all caster mobs, since they can cast on the run, melee like warriors, and have way more hp than any wizzies I know. Always assume they are 7 levels higher than thier con.
You CAN take this guy if you know what you are doing. Only lvl's 30 and up should attempt this.
When you see him, snare him. While he casts his first nuke you cast root. While he casts his second, you cast your best dot. Now, get out of his cast range. Heal up, and med up until you see the "XX roots has worn of" From there he is snared and you can get him before he gets you. Have whirling wind memmed, (it stuns knockbacks and does 122 dmg) and hit him with it a couple of times. At that point he should be almost dead. You can then root him and dot him (if you are a wuss like me.) or you can nuke him to death and get nuked back some. He's simple, you just have to have a plan.

Wrong time for a big lag spike...

An 18th lvl rogue, 19th lvl druid and an 18th lvl enchanter were walking down the street...

Actually, we were on the flame island camping Aviak Guards and doing quite well. Got on a spawn cycle with the three Aviak Guards so that after we pulled and killed one guard, another would spawn. wash, rinse, repeat.

Then Webclaw shows up. We had decided that when he spawned, we'd take him since we were all bound in the Arena. I'm at the top of the tower waiting for the next spawn to pull, when I hear "Casting snare on Webclaw Murkwave." So, I fly back down the tower to engage. As soon as I engage with a back stab, there was a huge lag spike. Everything froze for probably 6 seconds. Once the action resumes, I'm down to one bubble of health and I see a lot of "you try to pierce Webclaw Murkwave but his magical skin resists." Or something like that. Because of the spike, the druid couldn't get a heal off in time and the 'chanter wasn't able to help either.

I died. The druid ran back to the Arena (sow and levitate). The 'chanter went invis and camped.

Needless to say, I'm coming back for Murkwave. In the meantime, anyone have a strategy for debuffing him? Or was it the fact that I'm 7 lvls below him that prevented me from hitting him?

Tonight my 20th level dwarf warrior and my close friend's 20th dwarf paladin were grouped at the tower when this guy went off on us. Was red at 20 and we were afraid we'd get killed, but were bound in the arena, so we were close. We just hacked away. I could not taunt him off her, so she ended up having to use her Lay Hands; but we got him. He burned me alot, but I don't think I went down more than a bubble and a half. Got the staff, a hunting bow and some cheapo arrows, and got a pearl earring. Good experience, too. Luck has been with us this week.

Yeah there was some ugly dragon head or something for a warrior quest i just found out. Saw this guy he was blue to me. Pet in nuke nuke resist his spells and he dies. Gave the staff to some wide eyed noobie who wanted this piece of crap. Good for nothing if you ask me

Hey Alek,
I've killed him 3 times so far. Twice tonight alone in Lake Rathetear. He spawnds on the Aviak Island with the big ramp going up in to the air with the fountain/tourch on it. His exact spawn location is at the base of that ramp. He or a "place holder" (which is usally a aqua goblin shaman or something) will spawn every 7 minutes after being killed. The problem is that as soon as he spawns he runs over the mountain into the water. He heads towards the arena and wil actually come on sure on the same pacth of land the arens is at. On the south side...He'll make a circuit and do this for awhile if you miss him, he will come back. Just ait there..After waiting and he still doesnt show, I have sometimes found him by the hermit in the back corner of zone.

His magic is nasty so be careful. I was hit for 170 4 times tonight. Hes easy after he runs OOM. To help cast/ or get someone at arena to cast resist cold or endure cold. Helps a lot.

I'm on the Xegony server. I'll be gald to help you if you are on my server or if anyone else needs help with this guy. Shoot me a tell.

Back when I was a 19 Rogue (not too long ago) I fought this guy while partnered with a 21 Monk. The Monk was able to Feign Death, but he killed me. Hit me for a 175 dmg with one of his spells. About 15 minutes later we found him again, but this time we took him down. I suppose we got lucky because I only saw him cast once, and that was on the monk. He dropped the Water Crystal Staff, Hunting Bow, 4 Arrows, and a Gold Medallion.
