I have him up currently. Instead of going east into the stalls, in same area, go west, where there are 3 doors. he's in the south most room, at the far end from the door. I am not sure how to post a screenie here, but will give it a shot.Screenshot

Just got to CoM to camp him for my shammy. He was up when I got here:), unfortunately, he only dropped illegible scroll. :( So looks like I will be here a while. He was in the small room behind the door on the left as you head into the stalls. -160, -520

Spawned in 2 completely separate places for me, I think he can spawn in any of the stalls?

This guy spawns in 2 places I found in 3 days of camping him. In the stables in the rooms and in the courtyard right accross from the stables. Just go out of stables and straight accross. You will find a spectral in courtyard and rooms on both side. Make sure to pull the rooms as well.

Took me 3 days (about 40 hrs) to get courier to drop the students report. Total of 4 spawns. Approx every 12 hours he spawns and the stables spawn about every 10-15 mins as does the courtyard.

Good luck

I have had the courier spawn three times now at -225, -436; in a room with two other mobs. Once you zone into CoM and get past the gate, head to the left and there is an alley between two sets of buildings. The Stables is on the left, and a courtyard with rooms around it on the right. I have found two out of three pages in the area on the right.
My advice is to keep both areas clear when camping this mob. I have spent hours on this quest so far. At level 51 with a healer merc there is nothing to worry about less dying of boredom. This is an horrendous time sink. I hope having Greenmist is worth it.

- Spawned for me at -170, -513

- Cleared out both sides of stables only once

- Dropped the Student's Log for me

- Special note: The room he spawned in did not currently have a mob in his place.

i just spent over 10hrs straight camping the courrier to get my 3 scrolls. he seemed to pop in only 2 places for me. in the long building on the west side(farthest fromt he door) and in the north door on the east side. Though 9/10 pops were in the west building. By no means do the scrolls drop in order as i had scroll 3 and 4 and then had about 12 duplicates drop(not sure wich one as i couldnt loot it to identify)

Anyone know if this mob is still spawning? Been here for 2 hours and the spectral courier has not spawned once. Killing every mob on both sides of the stable as soon as they pop - and have cleared both sides a mindnumbing amount of times. Have a tracker with me too and this mob has never shown up.... the chicken.

I can verify that. While helping a guildie, he did not spawn in the place that I was familiar with back when I was doing the epic for my own shaman. Still in the stables area though.

Was there yesterday and got all three of the illegible scrolls in three hours. He only spawned three times for me and I was clearing the two rooms in the east stables and the room on the left side in the west stables. He only spawned in the room on the west side, (furthest spawn point from the door) for me.

there are 3 PH's, they can be anything.

you can find the first one in the EAST section of the stables, looking from the center of east, looking west, youll see 2 doors, the door on the right holds one.

in the WEST section, in the center, looking west, there are 2 doors, the one on your right has 2 mobs, the one FURTHEST from the door is a PH

same place, but in the left door, furthest mob from the door, is the 3rd

I finally understand this one. Knowing this, i am going to assume that each location will drop an Illegible Scroll that will probably be different from one another. The Courier that is in the longest room, on the NE corner of the stables has been consistent in dropping scroll II. I have seen a Courier pop in the SE room in the East stables, but he committed suicide on my DS at the time before I even knew he was attacking me. I have yet to see the one in the SE room on the West side yet. Day 3 now. Only have scroll #2 for the Ikky monk epic 1.0.

Monks need the 3 illegible scrolls that drop off the spectral couriers for part of the Whistling Fists quest. There are two spawn points in the stables which are pointed out at this page: http://www.geocities.com/Kurrleeeci/CityOfMist.html I did this last night and can confirm the info at this link is correct.

Couriers seemed to pop every 10th PH or so in the specified locations although I suspect it is random. Worked the stables solo at 55 and in three courier kills got the three different scrolls. Don't know if I was lucky or if the drops are on a rotation.

I have been there twice since the Revamp and have killed the Courier in the South West Stable house? Three times - all three times it has only dropped the Illegible Scroll. I will try again tomorrow. Courier seems to pop fine after PH is killed.

Last night I ended up in the revamped CoM, and after the rest of my group left, I decided to head for the stables to see if the couriers were still there.
I am pleased to say that after killing a few ph's a courier popped right where it should have been. So it appears they have not been moved.

At the risk of repeating some very good posts here already, I went to CoM last nite for the second night in a row. The previous nite 2 of us (65 mage and 53 shammy - me) had cleaned out the stables (east and west) twice and no courier. Someone has posted he spawns only at night but I can't confirm this.
Went back the second time solo with dog, and cleared the WEST side of the stables - nothing. Medded and pulled the LEFT HAND side room of the EAST part of the stables (that's the bit with the number "6" in it here (http://www.eqatlas.com/kunark/cityofmistmap.html). To my surprises, as well as a PB skellie there was the Courier. Slowed both and let pet deal to skellie (at my level Frenzied Pet will take down even mobs conning db to me at 53 as long as they're slowed on his own). Courier an easy kill as expecte (nearly 20 lvls lower). Dropped both the log and the illegible scroll. I was one happy shammy.

The courier despawned on me. I was there for about 3 hours and I saw him spawn at the same time I also got trained. 15 minutes later I walk back into the room to watch the spectral courier turn into a plaguebone... grrr
So if you see him, kill him quick so this doesnt happen to you

Just as an FYI, the spectral courier spawns on the west side of the stables. He is a random spawn, and he doesn't drop the student log everytime. You basically have to keep killing the place holder for him until he pops again. I found that he would pop every 3-4 hours usually, however he also popped 3 times in a row. He drops 3 different illegible scrolls and the student log. It took me 6 tries before I finally got the student log.

I was camping the west side of stables only, with pet, as a level 51 Shamy w/kei :)

He's got 3 spawnpoints. All in the stables.

In that passage that leads off the central courtyard, face east. Those two buildings on your left and right can both pop the Courier.

Now face West. The building on your left can spawn the Courier as well.

Each spawnpoint has a chance of popping the Courier, and each Courier has a chance of having any of the three scrolls or the Shammy book. I've been farming the guy for a while now. For myself (Whistling Fists), my wife (Khukri), and a few guildies looking for the same, or the log, and there is no distinct pattern to which scrolls get dropped.

But in the umpteen hours I've spent there, clearing the whole stables area for the sake of getting the group xp, they've only ever spawned in those 3 places.

Cleared Everything, still no Log
# Dec 31 2002 at 11:25 AM Rating: Decent
Last night my guild raided CoM with 20 peeps on reavers and pretty much everything else. (Woot go Bringers of Death) All three shammies got our books from Lord G., but we were unable to grab Jade... I was missing only my students log so we headed over to the stables on the way out.

We proceeded to clear everything. (We were actually waiting on re-spawns)

Oh yeah, the stables... really don't look much like stables, but more like a run down building. The post describing "broken beds" is a good help.

After about an hour and a half working on just getting the courier to spawn, we decided to pack it in. (We had been there for a long long time on reavers as it was.)

It seems like a luck of the draw thing to me. There were people in our raid that had taken the courier down, so we knew we were in the right area, but didn't have much luck. It seems others can just walk in, find him, kill him, and walk out. I am not so lucky, it seems.

I will try to pop in there again today and find a small group to assist me if necessary. Good luck to you if you are looking for the courier!

Finally got this guy to pop, but he did not drop the Student's Log, at least least not the first three times he spawned.

Spawn rate was actually 1 courier to every 3 place holders. He does still spawn in the stable areas, and at the locations listed in the previous postings in this section.

I am a level 51 Shaman (non-twinked) and held the "stable camp" with another level 49 shaman. He pulled (without a pet) to me in the hallway between the the two stables and we rooted, sicked my pet on the mob, and sat back and rested. The initial break in (full clear) on the two sides is a little rough and I would reccommend having some "support." However, after both sides have been cleared, two level 40ish can keep up on the spawns without any trouble. Just make sure NOT to get more than a couple at a time.

The stable area is free of wandering mobs. This makes it a very nice area for low 40ies to gain some exp.

Hope this all helps you. I have found this one spawn to be prob. the hardest part of the epic so far. Timing is everything on the spawns and luck of the draw on getting Spec to drop the log.

Good Luck to you all.

Spectal Courier
# Nov 10 2002 at 7:11 PM Rating: Excellent

Want the Spectal Courier?

He spawns in a single area in one of two locations. The single area is the stables which is left after the bridge and through the archway just there infront of you to the right.
Sit against far wall, its relatively safe here and face out towards the archway.

The area to your left is slightly easier to pull than the area to your right, so you should start with there.

Enter the archway on your left and proceed to pull the mobs from the first hut on your right, there are 2 within. Then once done, pull the four mobs from the room on the top left. Doing it this way reduces possible agro as they run back down to your camp (in the alleyway). The last of the four mobs is a possible spawning point of the Spectal Courier, however! Be warned! This spawn pop's and unpop's (at some period i couldn't work out), so be sure to pull him fast if you arrive and he is already there. Once done, you can pull the last 2 of the eight in this half of the stables from the top righthand room.

Next section is slightly harder, but not so much that you should worry, but if you can 'only just do' the first half, then this half might be worth leaving out for a while.

Enter the stables to the right of your camp spot and when you enter the open plan part of the stables, pull the room on your left (so, the room on your right if you are looking head ontoward the doors themselves). This room has a possible Spectal Courier spawn point, and its the left hand of the two mobs spawns. Then pull the room on the other side.

Sometimes this can be the best stopping point if the mobs to the other side are beginning to spawn as the mobs further inside the stables, although there is only 3, tend to be the next grade and therefore very tuff dark blues.... If you do wanna pull these, the pull the one on the left hand side first carefully (not agro'ing the one under the platform on the right), then go back for him, and lastly the toughest (usually) sitting up the ramp.

Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

On average from 40plus hours there hunting.
2/3rd's of the time: Student Logs,
Almost all the time: Illegible Scrolls (confused as one appeared not to have it, though a groupmember could have looted and I not noticed).

Spectal Courier spawns about once every 3 cycles, though sometimes less or sometimes more.

* Bewarey of mobs that appear and disappear in front of you, dont agro them and they won't agro you... (basically means no AoE's if poss.).

* Horse + Shrink to Tiniest Form = See through the walls.

Looted lots of Wraith Bone Hammers in my time in the stables, nothing else though. This doesn't disprove any theories about loot being completely random... but that hammer is the commonest of the rare loot in here.

I hope that this post is of use to fellow monks and questing Shaman alike! Good luck to you all!

I have killed quite a few couriers and they dropped different versions of illegible scrolls. Now that I have 2 versions of this scroll and can't find the 3rd kind. Where does the 3rd courier spawn from beside around stables? Or I have to keep killing them around stables until the 3rd one drops?

For the student log, it usually drops off from the courier spawned on the right hand side where you camp when you are facing the exit or the way out to the entrance. Yesterday we killed 2 couriers from the right hand side and they dropped the student log both times.

# Nov 15 2001 at 9:15 AM Rating: Decent
Ok this info might be a bit late for you, but I post it anyway, so here it is: http://www.eqmaps.com/maplist.php3
Click on this link and you will be at EQ maps. You will find several zones there in alpha order. City of Mist got 2 zip files and 2 jpg images.

Now a brief description on how you go to stables from the zone: As you enter CoM go through the bridge enter the Gate and turn to the left, keep straight ahead and turn into the first left opening. Now you got "stables" on both your left and on right hand. Turn right. On the stable garden enter the left door. Be careful, inside there spawns Plaguebone skelies, Phantoms, Apparitions, etc. So keep your eyes open since its easy to get trained by all of them at once.

The student log (and other writings found in this zone) cannot be multiquested, since they must be combined in a container, so they are not worth picking up unless you are a shaman.

The other night my guild group cleared the stables spawn 5 times, and the courier spawned twice. He didn't drop the log. I know it exists because I have seen one drop that went to a different shaman (I had promised it to him). Arrgh.

I've been camping the stables area for the Spectral Courier (SC). Now I've killed off at least 8 SC's and it *still* hasn't dropped the student log, although every time he's dropped the illegible scroll. Has the student log moved to a new mob? Or is the log some perverse rare drop? Please don't preach to me about 'The test of patience' I've done that already, gimme my log!

Killed him once today, he dropped the Student Log, and we let it decay. So yes, it still drops.

Its definetly for the Whistling Fists quest. I am just wondering if anyone knows what the gnomish metal contraption from Droga is. Somehow it allows you to read the note and advance to the next part of the Whistling Fists quest. Cmon someone has got to know.

Actually, the items that the courier drops for quest are:

Students Log : Shaman Epic
Illegible Scroll: Greenmist (SK version of Whistling Fist) and the Whistling fist.

Why Verant decided to put scrolls for 2 classes Cabilis quests on the same mob is a bit beyond me.. but I'm sure if we asked they have a form letter ready

the gnomish text when u combine them is called the Stupendous Tome and is bugged.

Iksar Sk's also need these scrolls for the Grand Lord's Kukri quest.

I went from 39-45 in Mist and as a monk was pulling for my group most of the time. The best spot to find the courier is in the stables area. More specifically, when the courier was up it was in one of two buildings. When you turn south from pool area (ie past the bridge and gate) you enter a little area with two buildings to your left and an opening to your right. The two buildings to your left (they have broken down beds in them) contain monsters that WILL AGRO ON YOU THROUGH THE WALL so if its your first time there only walk forward a little ways until you hear a door click - you will have pulled anywhere from 1-4 mobs so be ready. The courier can spawn in the first building on the left. However, once you clear these two buildings you can check the other spot where I saw the courier most often (80% of the time I'd estimate). Enter the opening to the right and then open the first door on the right - you will pull 2-3 mobs, hopefully one is the courier. On an average 6 hour camp pulling the stables I usually saw the courier about 2-3 times. Happy hunting.

looks like a book and is called 'student's log' its the last hard to find writing from city of mist for the shaman epic quest. If you are not a shaman, dont loot this thing, it does you no good.
Look at the above post about 'location' for good info on finding the courier, he is very accurate. I found a courier at the bottom of the temple on the right side of zone with the other lvl 42ish mobs but it spawns only very rarely there so hunt stables.

For the shaman style FA quest. After killing the black dire wolf in mistmore we have to collect 6 different pages here in city of mist and combine them in a box. If there are any sham in zone when one of these drops please make an effort to let them have it.

Edit: To add here, after finishing this part of my shaman epic quest. We do not need the illegible scroll that drops from this guy. We need the other writing that he carries (some book).

Been searching for this also, and since it is found there, has to be a fairly high level of a quest.
