Glacier Bear Spawn Times

I am currently on Ragefire and this was my experience today.

I killed the two wandering skeletons at 11.26am, I turned up back at the caves around 4.45pm the same day, one skeleton was up already which I killed, I then did a sense animals and the glacier bear was up which I killed around 5pm. So the 6 - 8 hr spawn time is inaccurate unless there is a huge variance (always possible!)

It is associated with the Ghost Spirit native American religion which teaches a dance that is intended to return the natural balance of the world. thanks to wiki answers.

I have heard that this bear may be a PH for the lich which i need for my epic.
There are 2 roamers which may be bear, lich, or ice skelly.
I had some difficulty finding this bear. I posted my young ranger in the cave to check track once in a while for the lich. No sense getting a raid force up if the mob hasn't popped. The last couple days the bear was on track but not the lich. So i went in with my pally to take out the bear and help the rare pop along. I could not find the bear anywhere. I found and killed one roaming ice bone and killed the static ice bones. but no bear.
I logged the ranger back on and moved around with track on the bear. It led me to the back corridor and pointed me to a wall. i triangulated some and concluded that the bear was inside a wall. Strange!
Log pally back on and run along the walls seeking a secret door that maybe didn't make the map. Suddenly I'm mauled by teddy poking halfway thru the wall and a short fight later i have a new bear rug.
I examined the wall where he had been and no secret door revealed itself. The area shows as a large area of solid rock. So if he's supposed to be a roamer and is stuck inside a rock it's a bit hard to find him. If he hadn't attacked me i'd still be looking.

Not a PH for epic mob

definately not a PH for Lich. I was wandering around caves taking a break from mauling Ice Giants and went down here to see if Glacier Bear was up, since I never saw him 6 years ago while desperately trying to complete my Totemic set for my Shaman. Ran into Lich, conned him as Dark Blue to my level 49 self and proceeded to attack, well, for kicks. Couldn't make much of a dent in him, so started to boogie out. Was aggroed by my elusive friend the Glacier Bear, who is purty darn fast, could not lose him in water with 150ish swim and SoW.

If you have the time this is a quick camp. I ran in with a druid friend around 4pm today PST. Ran in, she tracked, no glacier bear. So we layed waste to all the skellies in the cave. Came back at midnight (8 hours later) and sure enough there was the glacier bear. Running around.

Eqshaman.com has an excellent map to show the bears pathing. Check it out.

I killed the 2 ph about 7pm ish and checked back by 2 checked track wasn't up went around to go kill the ph again, walkd around the corner and there was the bear. Being a 52 druid it took about 2 nukes and its was dead. Dropped a ruined bear pelt and of course the pelt i was after the glacier bear pelt :)

Ah, great, that's the same as my experience. I killed the PH's and went back 8 hours later and there he was. Sense Animals let me right to him.
the bear

O.k. I've read all of the responses to attempting to get this bear to pop and decided to try it. So far i've figured out yes there are 2 roaming skelies one is near the entrance or has been the 2 times i've killed it. The second one is near Sulon McMoor but i've only seen it once i guess someone else killed it. The rest of the skeletons, the 2 in the broken teleporter room just sit there and repop in about 5 minutes. And finally the last 3 are in the building with the Rod they also will repop in 5 minutes so i'm guessing there is no reason to kill them. Just killed the 2 roamers not to long ago and will post the results tomorrow or whenever i check back here. Also, at http://www.eqatlas.com/everfrostcavvesmap.html there is an excellent map of the caves.

Does anyone know the Spawn time on this Bad bear, I need him for the Totemic helm quest and he hasn't spawned yet, if I had just a hint of his spawn time I would be set.

Found the caves by mistake whilst swimming down the wrong leg of the river. Had a little wander around saw this guy after about 1 minute, conned blue but didnt want to try my luck without a pet. I kept wandering and soon realized i was a little lost and ran into this guy again. Since I was commited to having to gate out anyway I put out a pet and took him on. Piece of cake. Pet hammered him to half death quickly and I had no trouble finishing him off. Pet at 80% health myself at full health with 70 mana. He only dropped the Glaciel Skin.

Just trying to figure out where these caves are that everyone is talking about. Don't see anything like it on the map. Just wondered if I could get a loc or something to help clarify. Thanks

You have to swim up the river under the ice to get to the caves. Good swimming skill is helpful. I believe it is the west fork of the north part of river. You can see the tunnel from the top so plan your path from top of ice.

I have a lvl 35war on Lanys and am sorta twinked, and if a group of lvl 26's could take this bear, a lvl 35war could with about 2 - 3 bubs of hp left (at least). I went LD and am about to continue playing, but I am in EF and I'll go look for him. ^_^

okies, there is also part of pally quest down here so at lvl 48 (pally ) I went down there without map, figuring it'll be a piece of cake. Well, I walked around aimlessly, saw the high necro..red at lvl 48 and yes very ready to attack high elf, turned and there is the bear, whoopsie no big deal the kill, two ruined skins/pelts/fur and one no drop pelt. Thought oh thats neat kept wandering around, see lich con dark blue, yes I should have known better any dark blue at my lvl is likely to cause trouble to soloing non tweaked pally. Rodcet nife and undead spells barely bothered this Skellie, don't think of him as a normal skellie:) I sort of scratched him a wee bit when I went for LOH, the mob fears, hits with up to? 160-ish nukes, and physical hits in the 80's 90's , static? no idea but this skellie is dangerous. How I got out? Rooted him and ran :) Luckily he didn't resist my root.

And I haven't found my bone yet:)

Lucky me, first time I ever went into the hidden cave, and the bear was up. I solo'd him at lvl 30 about an hour and a half ago (conned blue, must be around lvl 25-27, not 29-30). He dropped a ruined bear pelt, a chunk of meat, a pearl earring, Ingot of the Devout, and Glacier Bear pelt. The last two are NO DROP. I guess I spent too much time taking screenies of him, because just a few seconds after I looted his corpse, the Lich of Miragul sneaked up behind me and killed me fast... very fast. =)

As amusing as these tales may be, it would certainly help people more if any of them were true. I'm guessing that when you say "wandering" you mean posing symmetrically and absolutely immobile in perfect formation (some in broken teleport room, the others far in the back corner in a little pagoda). Because *THAT* is what ice boned skeletons in this cave do. I have also made distinct note that people describe (see Lich info) the Lich as a static mob, which in this case, and no other case known to man, means he wanders *constantly*. After having died twice due to the bogus information here and on the Lich info page of this site, we simply left. ***** the POS helm, and don't post misinformation, uselesses.

to tell you the truth bro, he is a long spawn, and there are two wandering, as i said two wandering icebone skellys, i camped here several times, and have killed them, the bear could be an 16hr spawn---- have to kill the wandering first, then in about 6 to 7 hrs, the wanders respawn, kill them, and about 30min, the bear should spawn, but not always, the ibs may spawn again, and then you have to kill them again. i camped him and got him. i believe this is not usless info, and i hope i have summed it up for some of the patient shammys getting the helm, just keep checking brave ones. :)

just a note: watch out for lich, he is very mean

hey brave ones of eq, camped this guy for 7 days. a friend of mine was killing the ph (ib'S) every morning, and 7 hrs later would wait for him to spawn. with no luck, got up early one morning, and killed the wandering ph's, came back six hours later, in which the ph's spawned about 7 hours, and killed them again. waited two hours with no spawn. group with a lvl 52 cavalier, and sat here for 7 more hours, and hit sense animals, BOOM, glacier bear, i started shaking, as he pulled the bear, and was being hit by an ib at the same time. bear didn't even hit the cavalier, and he let me loot the pelt. NOTE: very long spawn, and you have to kill the wandering ib's, that what triggers the bear. good luck.

ohh yea, thanks again to the guy who help me.

Soloing the bear as a shaman
# Feb 20 2002 at 8:03 PM Rating: Default
I solo'd him at 36 with no problem. In hindsight, I bet, I could have solo'd him much sooner had I spotted him earlier in my seasons.
How I did it might easily apply to younger adventurers. Though you must be wary not to run into the lich. Study the map... know where the lich is, he is static so avoid that room. Clear out prior the Ice bones you might run into... although I didn't do this when I vanquished the bear... but might be a good idea.

Find the bear and DOT him.... run, stop when u are out of casting range, DOT again with different Dot.... repeat for each DOT or when DOT times out.
Single IB
# Feb 12 2002 at 2:11 AM Rating: Decent
Ive seen a single IB walking in a CC-wise direction, but no Lich on track. Is this a PH for the Lich? (remember: I said single IB). Just curious...

not spawning
# Feb 09 2002 at 6:01 AM Rating: Default
I have spent the last 3 days religiously timing and clearing the wandering iced bones. I have killed 9 consecutive sets of PH's and have yet to see a bear. I show up 30 minutes before they are due to spawn and stay 30 minuntes after, casting sense animal the whole time. I've finally become fed up with this and have petitioned. I'm thinking his spawn must be broken on solosek ro or something. approx 65 hours camping for an item that merely decent is ridiculous.
