Progression server locations

After about 5 years away from EQ, I came back and started over on a progressions server as a necro. One thing Ive found is there are a lot of sites with info out there but at least half of it doesn't apply to progression servers. So I decided in this case to solve the question for myself. Where on a progression server does this guy spawn?
I can say for certain he spawns in South Karana.... AND in Infected Paw. I was near the entrance to Paw, when Ishva Mal comes roaming up close. He stopped, turned and roamed south east, almost to the shore, then came back. I am level 36 and I had a level 35 cleric with me. He was yellow and somewhat of a pain, so I fear kited him around and let the pet/dot do its job. Dropped the spell, brain, scroll.
At the same time a level 50 necro was looking for him inside Infected paw and sent me a tell like a minute after I killed him that he spawned in there. He said to look at project99 wiki maps at location number 8. That one dropped spell and brain.
So there you go, for whatever its worth.

PH is is a ishva Lteth not an ishva Lteth. You might miss it if you were sorting by reverse alpha, like I was.
Spawn Point

Spawn Point in South Karana seems to be at about -3500, -2150, 30


Scratch that... But he did pause at that point, about 1 min after killing his PH just over the hill. Might have multiple spawn points, *shrug*

Two spawn points were -3091.16,-1559.61 and another -4852.51,-3107.02. Have killed him about 10x-15x today and has dropped the robe about 1/2 the time. It's lore, kept having to put them on different chars.

Still used for Rogue 1.0 epic. Was one in AH (Mayong) for 300pp. Much less than the 8000pp avg Allah's shows.

Only seems to have one placeholder, "a Ishva Lteth gnoll". Each seems to be about 50/50 to spawn. Have had Ishva 3-4x in a row.

Drops the brain (quest item) and summon corpse spell every time.

Very easy kill at 51.

THIS MOB WAS EASY TO TRACK ONE OF ITS SPAWN POINTS IS DEFINATELY SOUTH SOUTH EAST OF SPLIT PAW LAIR CO: -4627.05 by -2526.47 I was able to pwn it with my well equipped 41 ranger (SOLO) with a couple of heal pots just incase, I was lucky and it dropped The summon Corpse spell which is now a level 35 SHD spell and 34 NEC spell, it also dropped the robe, which I think is standard.

Just took him down with my 33 Drakkin Necro. Took a while, and I had 14%hp after, but he did drop the spell. He was east of Paw, but I did not have to kill and PH for him to spawn... No one was in zone and he was up... so not sure about the whole PH thing.

He also dropped his brain, the lariat and the robe.

After revamp of paw, The Ishva Mal pop in South karana in random location.
From paw zone in, he can pop in the zone covered from east to south east.
His PH is an ishva Lteth there is 3 different location for repop.
PH or named repop fast 4 time in raw (less than 20 seconds), then you must wait 30 min probably for repop.
The Ishva Mal must have around 3K HP

I killed the PH then 3 named pop in raw (1 robe & 2 spell)

He now spawns east/southeast of splitpaw, his placehoder is a isvha Lteth gnoll. you can find him south east of split paw half way between hermit and paw. Both the Ishva and the placeholder spawn in an area slightly larger then max bard track and they move around but they stay in that general area. Respawn after kill is about 30 seconds to 1 min.
he still spawns

Anyone know, after PAW being revamped to a 65+ zone, if this guy *and his epic needed robe* are still going to be there? if not, where will the robe come from? will it still be needed? etc.

I have my rogues epic, but when I saw the Paw revamp and the mobs inside *red to 66 druid*, made me seriously concerned about if sony forgot about the rogue epic drop here.
New spawntime?

Ive been here for almost 4hours 30 minutes and only killed 2 PH:s so far. Have they changed spawntime or is it bugged??

Ok, 1 minute after posting this another PH spawns,
so either its on a 90 min timer or still bugged :)

Something really was bugged yesterday i spent 12 hours at the camp and what i tought was PH:s wasnt, cause non of them was the Ishva Lteth Gnoll.

Now when i loged on after a good nights sleep ive killed the REAL ishva PH twice in one hour, so it seems like everything is back to normal.

Repop 30 min
# Aug 20 2004 at 12:51 AM Rating: Decent
The repop for The Ishva Mal or Place Holder is 30 minutes. I had Ishva Mal appear twice in a row, so definitely not 36 hours in between. First pop I got the Summon Corpse spell; second pop no robe or spell, just brain and junk items. (Brain and junk dropped both times.)

The guards outside however did not repop every 30 minutes. Seemed more like 90 mins to 2 hr.

I, Sanctimonius Pontificus, Holiest of Paladins, have this day soloed this vile cur with Marr's favor upon me, and a mere 49 levels of experience.

Marr saw fit to bestow KEI and HoV unto me in preparation for battle, and after methodically soothing and single pulling his (her?) guards and any other nearby healers, I charged the Ishva.

I expected a difficult fight, and had all 4 stun spells ready, as well as my Lodizal sheild equipped for bashing, but was surprised at how often the dog managed to resist my stun spells. Fortunately I resisted his spells quite often as well, and had the foresight to cast resist magic, disease, and resist poison before engaging.

I alternated casting stun, yaulp 2, flash of light, and bashing throughout the fight. I don't care what non-believers say about flash of light, but I swear to Marr the mobs drop faster when I use it; it lowers the mob's attack and AC, and sticks on every single mob I have ever cast it on, including Lodizal and Vox, plus it's great to draw aggro.

Nevertheless, the flea-infested abomination got me to 20% health (which was originally at 3400 or so with HoV) at which point I downed a Potion of Stinging Wort.

Ishava gave up the struggle shortly thereafter and tried to run, so I stunned him and buried my Wumslayer in his skull for the kill.

He dropped the Robe, the brain, and a splitpaw eye.

I pray to Marr that his spawn cycle is 36 hours, to confound any cursed Shadow Knights who might come to seek him.

Praise Marr!

Well done, brave Paladin! Might I encourage thee to reward thyself on a job well done by heading forthwith to yon Bazaar, and treating thyself to an upgrade to thy wurmslayer!

Not sure if they upgraded this guy but I have been farming him for awhile--After the patch The Fabled Ishva Mal was spawned in the ishva mal spot--fabled is immune to root/snare and seems to be more magic resistant where the ishva was not immune and spells took almost all the time--Fabled hit me for 1500 hps with a spell so i evac'd.

Hits for 1333 max - double - Summons - Not rootable nor snarable
Quite a lot of hps (10-20k i guess)
Green con @ 65
Dropped the Fabled Robe of the Ishva every time so far (2 kills 2 robes)

Fabled Robe of the Ishva
Slot: Chest
AC: 18
Focus Effect: Improved Damage 4
DEX +10 CHA +13 INT +11 HP +75 MANA +90
Mana Regeneration: +1 (aka FT 1)
WT 1.8 Size: Medium
Races: ALL
Slot 1 Type 7

Fairly easy kill, casts most of the time so doesn't do damage, if you can kill him before he runs out of mana it's cakewalk, probably necro soloable, definitly necro + shaman duoable, very easily
Resisted all his spells (see gear in magelo, average EP)
Can probably be assassinated by a rogue pet (nec/mag)

loc is good off of prev post 715, -450 but he is not a 36 hour spawn--wiped him with my 58 druid very easily before i crashed for the nite and when i got up 6 hours later he was back up. I spent 3 hours there without him spawning-killed place holders so I assume spawn is random. Dropped spell and robe both times. Those looking for the spell drop can also kill snakes found in the water--didn't confirm drop myself but a guildy did get it off snakes previously.

If this helps any The Ishva Mal is a 36 hour spawn....loc 715, -450: spell also known to drop off of Nisch Val Guard no idea on their spawn time!!
You know you've been playing too many MMOs when:

You pass a cop and wonder if it 'Agroed' you.
Another car passes you, you attempt to /follow it.
You use your "push to talk" key while talking on the phone.
Text-based games You put a /s before every message you type in an IM (or equivalent / command)
(I have done all)

Perhaps it's been changed in the past year, but the Ishava Mal is not currently a 36 hours spawn. In fact, the Ishva and his placeholders spawn at the same rate as the other mobs in the area -- I got him twice in a row just now, after about 3.5 hours of killing placeholders.

However, note that when I arrived, there were 3 of the Nisch Val Guards spawned, all of which I killed before killing Ishva's placeholder for the fisrt time. However, at the end of about 3.5 hours, only 2 of them respawned. If I had to guess, I'd also say this time varies -- since the one I killed last spawned a git 5 min. before the one I killed first.
