Killed the PH in front of the throne at 11pm, waited until 8am and no spawn. Actual spawn happened, for me, at 10am game time. There was no spawn within 5-6 minutes. All further spawns happened at the same regular intervals as every other kobold in the room.

8 hours and counting now, at least I got lucky with Raster - that was only 7 hours.

Kill the PH (one in front of the chair) at 11pm game time. Then he's respawn around 6am. Don't kill him and let him despawn and respawn at 7am. Can get more spawn chances this way.

Just a heads-up. There are TWO kings in Naggys lair. The PH and the spawn room are related to the KOBOLD King, Not King Tranix.

I did not spend a lot of time in the room, but here is what I found. Targins ph is a kobold and despawns on its own around 7 am game time. about 3 minutes and 48 seconds later ( 38 ticks) the ph or targin spawns. Alternately, you can kill the ph. and it repops in about 20 minutes like the regular zone spawns. Seems it would be faster to kill than to wait ( 3 times as many chances). I only watched for 2 hours. Good luck.

Edit: very next day I log on, ph is up. watch it despawn at 7 am, repop 3 mins 48 seconds later again. another ph. log out. come back in about 2 hours 20 minutes and targin is up,. 11 pm game time. no other changes in tracking. Targin can pop directly from a ph despawn it seems to me.

Was camping him on my mage while had the monk at another camp for the epic. Had Targin spawn and started running the monk that way just needed to get a small head start before killing him already timed the run. But maybe 2min after he spawn he despawned. There was no one else the the zone and no corpse just poof gone. I spent 18 hour to have that happen. I have got to say great design on the devs teams behalf
What level could I hold the room with...

What level could I hold the room with a boxed cleric and monk team, with two mercs (healer and warrior)? I was hoping around 32nd or so.

Fabled Champion aggro's at his camp during anniversary season...be warned, yellow to 58 and deadly to lvl 73 without healing. Drops crappy "fabled" shield.

Edit: Fabled King, blue to 66, spawns around there too with a gray pet.

I camped this for a couple of days because I thought it'd be cool for my level 8 barbarian warrior bazaar vendor to hold a book.
I killed everything for 2 days, no Targin.
Ignored the 4am game time spawn, let it despawn. Targin spawned the next game day.
It's the kobold that stands on the chair that's the PH for Targin.
I uploaded pic with new graphics, cropped so you can see the chair and barrel, so you know the spot when ya find it : )

I'm a casual player and don't really have much time to play EQ, but I still enjoy it quite a bit. I started a monk on a new server and at around 35 was camping for the Code of Zan Fi and the Idol from Raster. I used the same method on both:

1.) Pick up a Cleric Mercenary to help out with the adds.
2.) Make a hotkey that does:
/target raster ---or--- /target targin
3.) I also included in my hotkey training for mend since I didn't have that maxed.
4.) Feign Death at the feet of the spawn point.
5.) Create an audio trigger on the word "raster" or "targin" depending on your camp. I used Alert5 because it dings.
5.) Use a game pad to repeat the key while you watch TV or do other things. I caught up on some work on another computer while I waited for them to spawn.
6.) When they spawn your computer will start dinging and you can pop the cleric mercenary out, let him buff and then stand up.

This will take longer overall to get your items since you're only getting one spawn per EQ day, but it will let you do it passively.

Heya, I can confirm this guys spawns in the shaman kobold room, and does NOT wander, he stays put. And I am not sure if he drops the code 100% of the time but it dropped for me last night, he was up and I did not have to do any killing =) Lucky me hehe

Well after doing more research I determined that truebeliever was mistaken in where Targin spawned. In his post he mentions that he was camping King Tranix's room and discovered that Targins spawn changed to the Kobold shamans roost. Well Targin never spawned in King Tranix's room, Tragin always has and still is spawning in the Kobold king's room. I just got Targin to spawn after about 6 hours of camping.

Loc of Targin is : -535, -359

On eqatlas's map its room #6 "Kings room"

I was camping Raster in Lower Guk. While waiting for the respawn I decided to head out and check on Targin. Sure enough, he was standing tall with the kobold so I killed him and got my book! I had spent the last 3-4 days tryin to camp him, now I just walk in and kill him. How's that for good luck!!!
killed at 4pm game time today.

Dunno when he spawned, but was up at 4pm game time. Trained zone on self to speed kills, and Targin was there a-swingin'. Yay for lucky spawns :)

I camped Targin 3 days at about 8 hours a day. On the third day he finally spawned (earlier this RL week). I did not pay attention much to spawn times.

The first 2 days a friend and I killed anything that came by. I noticed the spawn timer was NOTHING like what had been reported in everyone elses posts.

The third day the spawn times matched almost EXACTLY.

On the first 2 days we killed all the PH's and no luck with Targin. The third day I let one morning ph despawn, but killed many more ph's after that not letting anymore despawn. Targin Spawned on the thrid day about 4 hours Real time.

IMHO just kill everything in the room (or at least all the PH's).

Tagin's Placeholder spawns directly on the little thrown and Targin may or may not spawn right on the thrown. I was busy yacking back to when he spawned and made me SCREAM in disbelief.

Just wanting you to all know that Targin does still Exist even though I could have pulled my hair out waiting.

Started camping him at 8am RL time. First I killed everything for 3 hours. That didnt work. Then tried the spawn timer/despawn thing. Few hours of that, didnt work either. Killed everything again, and finally 14 hours after i got there, he spawned. My baby monk got her book.
