"Ultra Rare" drop is an understatement

I hunt rare mobs/rare drops for the fun of it, so I decided to try for this staff. It does still drop, mine dropped on a regular server January 28th 2016, but the amount of named you have to kill in order to see the staff is unreal. I did not do a tally like Healeyu did on the post below, but I would guess it had to be about 80 to 100 named before I saw it drop. Not phers...100 NAMED. I couldn't believe how rare this thing is and how long it took. Almost a month of checking it many times a day. It must be a 1% chance drop rate or some crazy number like that. Xalgoz will pop almost every other time so it is not hard to get him, it's just that he drops (2) 1hander swords and a medallion , or (1) 1hander, (1) 2hander, and the medallion almost every time. When the staff dropped it was with a 1hander and a medallion as usual. This was more rare than Raster or any of the other named/drops I have done, even the vocal chords from Chardok drop more often than this staff imo.

A few weeks ago, I made it my goal to get the staff to drop, because I had a feeling it still DID drop, even though Alla said it doesn't.
The thing is, it's VERY RARE and I could see how people could get the idea that it doesn't drop anymore.

I had it drop for me once before (2008 or 2009) and it wasn't nearly this long of a camp. Foolishly, I sold it ($15k or so I think).
This time, I decided that I wanted to get it again and hang onto it.

Well, here are my notes for the spawns. Keep in mind that I may have a missed writing a few down here and there, but the spawns are all mostly there.

Here us my ongoing notepad from the camp:
---------------------------------------------------------------
day 1: ph, x, ph, ph, x, ph, x, ph, x, ph
day 2: ph, ph,(patch) ph, x, ph, ph, x, ph, x, x
day 3: ph, x, x, ph, ph, ph, x, ph, x
(a week passage or more)
day 4: ph, x, ph, x, ph, ph, ph, x, ph, x, x, ph, ph, ph,

ph, DRI/x, x, x, DRI/ph,
Day 5: ph, x, x, ph, ph, x, ph, ph, ph, x, x, x, ph
Day 6: ph, x, x, x, x, x
Day 7: ph, ph, x, ph, x, ph, ph, x
day 8:(2/16) ph, x, ph, x, x
day 9:(2/17) x, ph, x, ph, ph, x, x, ph
day 10: x(STAFF)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Not all of these days are consecutive. In fact, most aren't, but since there was literally NO ONE (well, maybe once) in the zone during the entire time I camped this, I felt pretty confident that I was the only one killing spawns.

Here's the totals in case you're interested:

Spawn timer: 24 min (for Xalgoz's spawn)
Total spawns: 88
Total placeholder (ph) spawns: 46
Total Xalgoz spawns: 42
Percentage of Xalgoz spawns: 47.7%
Staff drop: 1/42 = 2.38%

DRI = dungeon rot infected (This was the mob that started out as either ph or Xalgoz, but when he got to a certain %health, he changed into me - shape-shifter)

I'm totally excited that the staff dropped for me and that it still DOES drop.

PLEASE update Allakhazam's info, since it still drops. It's just very rare.
A RARE drop off a mob on a 24 min spawn timer, but Xalgoz doesn't even spawn half the time (at least for me).

Good luck. This camp sucks!
I am one happy necro today.

FWIW, the camp isn't all bad. I got bags full of defiant gear to sell in bazaar, a bunch of vender trash (runes mostly) and a fair amount of coin.

Been camping this guy a good chunk of the day for the staff. He finally dropped something I've not seen on him before.
It's not even in the known loot on this site.
I was there when he popped and no one else in zone, if you're thinking it was planted on him. Nope.

This is not normal loot but rather a random world drop not consistent with Xalgoz. Defiant gear can be aquired from almost anywhere and almost anything and the drops are roughly level requirements close to the level of the mob that dropped it.

Thought it should be said here before people start trying to farm him for items such as this and get frustrated after spending weeks and not seeing it drop from the specific mob.

Did the Invoke Fear potion of this item always have a recommended level of 40?
I camped this guy back in 2003 or 2004 (before I quit) for quite a few hours and he never dropped the staff. Would have loved it for my low level necro.
I'm going to go back and give it a whirl though, for old times.
Unless they revamped the zone (doubt it), I soloed him easy with my 65 cleric at the time...he has decent gear, but keep in mind that I'm speaking in terms PoP and prior era (Velius dragons and quest gear, etc). He still has the same gear, but it Lv 71 now with about 8300 hp (buffed) and 7500 mana (unbuffed).

Wow no loc.
# Jul 28 2006 at 2:48 PM Rating: Decent
Ok i dont see a loc for this guy, and to get to him is kinda a pain if you havent done it before, look on your map, drop down the "hole to lower level" in the S.W. corner of map.

Loc, looking at his spawn point is neg 36, pos 557, neg 292

If you are anywhere near the library you arent even close :-) its totally the other side

As a matter of fact, if you are looking at the map and you see the words "Hole to Floor Below" , just to the right of the words "Below", is where you will be when you get to where you are going :-)...

He spawns in the pulpit.
Easy, once you find him

As a rogue I didn't have to deal with clearing half the zone. Here is the important stuff:
-----------------------------------------------------
Snuck down to him, went down ramp behind altar. Killed downstairs greenies and got a Dusty Ransacker's Pack as a bonus. Used freshly cleared downstairs area to pull him to. *I recommend this if you dislike adds* Easy pull at level 58.

Fight went like this: (He was Light Blue)
He casts a lot. Boiling Blood & Screaming Terror are his favorites. He couldn't land anything on me, and my resists are all around 90. That fear spell would have been a problem if it had landed though.
I didn't backstab, since I was solo. Just whacked him a lot and he went down easy (I was at 75% out of 4kHP when it was over). No disciplines, no poisons, just straight-up fighting. Took rougly 80 seconds.

Fought him twice in hopes of a Staff of the Dreaded Gaze. Instead, I saw:
(3) Xalgozian fangs
(1) Blade of Xalgoz
(1) Shrunken Iksar Skull Necklace


Advice:
1) If you're worried about adds, get down the ramp (or jump down the pit on the right side of the church) and clear out the 4 undead down there. Pull Xalgoz down the ramp and you will have a much easier time.
2) Get a Magic Resist buff. If his fear sticks, you'll be fairly screwed.
3) Take your time getting to him! Kaesora is confusing, fairly large, and full of potential adds, especially near the church.

A real gimp for a level 70 beast with almost 400 aa. He lasted maybe 30 seconds top before he dropped 2 fangs and a necklace. Rot timer on corpse is 8 min so if no one is in zone when you kill and there's extra fang, it will rot anyway so bring a friend.

Took me about an hour clearing trash mobs and ph's before he popped.

75 Bsty. 550 aa's, no gear, no buffs, no pets, no disc's.. he lasted less then 3 seconds.. could be off by a few ms.

once your atk is 1700 gearless/buffless/weaponless and max crit hits.. he wont last long.

there you go

took him down buffless. Had half life when I was done. Xalgoz doted me a couple of times. Every time he started to cast I'd get behind him and nail a backstab.

Took him down solo, 6 DEC on Stromm. Had all self buffs on to include all saving throws, frenzy from my fabled screaming mace, Elixr of Speed VI, Elixr of Clarity VI and strengthen. Took it slow through the zone and was able to get single pulls all the way to the pit. I cast Celestial Healing on myself and jumped in. Killed the 4 mods at the bottom with Soulstipper and banish undead then moved out to the church and pacified and single pulled mods back to the pit to thin things out. Xalgoz was the only one to put up a real fight; I just kept hitting him with Banish undead (which worked ever though he is not listed as undead) until he dropped.

Xalgoz is on an 75min spawn timer...you just need to keep the church area clear of all mobs.
I did the quest very easy with my 59 paladin. he was light blue to me and undead spells work on him...he ussually drops 2 fangs so if your buddy needs one also you should bring him along. the fangs are no drop/lore item.

Not sure if anything has changed since 2006, but he is definitely NOT on a 75 min timer. Dropped him twice and it was about 20 apart.
Dropped same loot both times (necklace and 2 blades)

Been camping him for a couple days in a row now, but I have farmed him many times for Friends to get HS key Fangs. He is a 30 min Cycle. Usually drops 1 or 2 Fangs and always the Shaman Cudgel Quest ( 8th) Necklace, sometimes drops the 2hs, but I have yet to see the staff.
The Mobs around his Spawn point are on 20 min timers.
What has worked for me, is just standing in the pulpit( opposite the bench), against the pulpit itself, not on it andjust stay there, if you are in the middle of it and with back against the wall ( will be basically on the Crack on the square floor tiles) You will get o adds as the other mobs can't see you. Mind you if you are lower level and the mobs con LB or DB and Xalgoz is close to your level or red, they will agro, but this should be common sense to anyone.
I have done this for hours on my Bst and never get adds. I have had Xalgoz pop 14-17 times in a row, no PH's doing this, not killing anything else in area. I'm not sure if there is a particular setup of mobs needed to get him to pop so much or if I was just lucky, but I hope this Info helps those in need.

You are correct. Xalgoz/PH are on a 30min spawn time which is different than the area. When we first came here, he was here and dropped one fang and the rare item blade. After 4 times of his PH spawning, he spawned again on the 5th time and had again one fang and the rare item blade. Never saw him drop 2 at one time.

Xalgoz/PH are on a different spawn timer than the rest of the mobs in the area. It's something like 30 minutes iirc, whereas the rest of the area is 20 or so.

Wrong. Just keep the room clear and he will pop, got him to pop twice in an hour so 75 min timer is incorrect.
