Student's Log

For what it's worth, I found the name of the mob is "a spectral courier", not "spectral courier".

He was spawning for me inside of 2 rooms... n228, n437 and n160, n520.

They appear to be on 16 minute timers.

Took me a couple of hours... he doesn't always drop the Student's Log.

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

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.

- He does spawn during the day

- 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.

Got lucky, went to the spawn point in the east side of the stables and he was there waiting for me. Took him down and he dropped the log. After spending days waiting for him I get so lucky =)

Now I can go do the rest of this epic, Spear of Fate here I come....

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.

The west section of the stables. If you followed the whole post, you'd realize that it was linear with the first statement he made, consisting of the east section of the stables.

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.

One scroll down, two to go:)

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!

Success!!

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.
