Has anyone seen this elusive creature recently? As far as I know the latest hard info we have on him is from before the Ro / Oasis revamps with a possible sighting around the (now) Undead Ruins in 2010.

I know he definitely still spawns as I purchased his Scute Shield from a player back in January on the TLP servers, but my own attempts to locate him through waiting and mass slaughtering the zone proved fruitless. If anyone has seen or killed him recently and happens to remember the area they spotted him in I would love to have a better lead to go on!

DUNEDIGGER SPOILERS BELOW:

Dunedigger works exactly like Quillmane in Karana.
His spawn cycle is on a 66 second timer (on Phinigel other servers may be a little slower) the rest of the zone trash is on a roughly 25 second timer.

PHs and Dunedigger himself spawned in the area marked in a red square on the map.

The following mobs are on his cycle (listed in order of how many I saw between spawns):
a sand scarab
a dune tarantula
a shriveled mummy
a madman
a crypt mummy
an orc raider
a large rattlesnake
a parched zombie
a brown asp
a puma

It took me 42 spawncycles to go from 1 Dunedigger to the second spawn (41 PHs inbetween) by following this method.

Good luck fellow hunters.

Took me about 4-5 hours but clearing the mobs in the rectangle did yield Dunedigger.

Would like to corroborate Bobby's SCIENCE. Got him in 49 PH, so probably around 2% spawn rate. Would add that "a sand giant" and "a Deathfist warrior" are 2 more rare PH.

I finally saw him, my EQ life is complete. He spawned and was killed at 6418, -2027 on the Agnarr server. I made it just in time to watch him die, good enough for me.

Edit: Sorry for the bad picture, he was at 20% when I ran up and I was just spamming printscreen hoping to catch him before he died.

Got him again, on the Phinigel TLP Server (PoP era). Spawned around 6222, -1244

He was resting on a dune a little east of Derv Camp #2

This critter still pops, I was lucky enough to have him spawn next to me on the long hill parallel to the sea right near the fishing huts and the bandit camp. He dropped the shield, which was a rather nice twink item for my paladin on The Combine server (just when it first opened).

He is a very rare spawn though, much rarer than the dreaded Rahotep.

Popped last night when they reset zone because of LDoN vendor issues on E'ci. Only dropped an 'Armadillo Hide' though.
He Lives!

I caught him right after a zone reset too, there might be something to that. He was hanging out in the middle of the undead circle of stones
(LOC:+6300,-850; in between the tunnel to the Commonlands and most western Derv Camp).

First time I've ever seen this 'lil guy was today while I was helping a bud mop up Dervs at the 3rd camp. Dropped the shield and a hide/pelt that was edible as a snack.

I saw this guy today on my way through North Ro. He was around location 13 on the map on eqatlas.com. He conned white to a level twelve and hit for a max of 26. After killing him I did a /time maybe this will help.

He didn't drop the shield, instead he dropped an armadillo hide. Anyone know what it's for?

Never knew the critter existed till I was stumbling along through NRo and saw the little darling on track. I though to my self, what the heck, put the smack down on his green behind and got that spiffy shield. Whoot! My lucky day!

Does anyone have a serious answer to what the hide is used for?
Maybe......

Maybe he spawns like someother named creatures like Terrorantula. Maybe if someone killed a WHOLE lot of normal armadillos he would spawn. Worth a try

I ran into Dunedigger last night on the Xegony server while running to Oasis. It aggroed on me, so I killed it. All I got off of it was a armadillo hide. As of last night, I was a lvl 20 paladin. I didn't have any trouble killing it.

For anyone doubting if this guy still pops, he does. I ran into him yesterday on Luclin server. Very green to a 39 chanter (of course)and he had the shield.
