Kill foragers to spawn named mobs.

Killing the named mobs has a small percent chance to spawn Harbinger.

80 Bard, 16+ hours camping TT zone. GL!

.............bad run, indeed; been camping forager for the Harbinger spawn going on 3 DAYS now: endless forager killings, seen every named AT least twice, killed Crusader Zoglic and got the Iksar Chestpiece, started with about 3 foresters up at any given time but has gone to 7 up at once, with 50% going to AA and killing light blue foragers I went from 55 to 56 and made at least 20 AA, yet STILL NO HARBINGER!!!!!!!!!!
......3 days; 10+ hours. Thinking I might've had better luck going after the Hobbit mask....

Forager's don't actually spawn Harbinger. Forager's spawn the named mobs which do spawn the Harbinger. I popped two of them at once after killing foragers exclusively until all but 1 were left. I had around 15 named mobs up. I started killing all the named and got two Harbingers up at once. Both spawned within tracking range of river.

Good luck,

Actually your wrong, when you kill foragers they can repop as any of the cycles named including Harbinger. When you kill a named it can repop as a forager or as another named. Example; I killed a forager. A second later on track was Harbinger Dronik, I killed him it popped another Harbinger Dronik, killed it and it spawned Dragontail, killed Dragontail and it repoped as a forager. That series of pops shows that anything can pop anything as long as you keep killing the foragers.

They must've drastically reduced the named spawns. I've NEVER seen a name spawn a name and its been 1/6-ish forager-to-named ratio

Took me four hours to get this blasted mask as a 65 bard (230 AA)... Go do the FoS mask if you're high enough level--it's faster, better exp, and a subquest for the only iksar skeleton illusion.

65 is really a convenient level to get this mask at, track-wise, although it'd still be faster at 85 with better DPS. The nice thing about 65 is that all the forager and named PHs are green (except two-ish on the spawn table, which are light blue), while all other mobs are gray, so they stand out on track. Harbinger Dronik himself is light blue so he really stands out.

I'm too impatient to sit still in one place so my strategy was to track the topmost forager on track (since it updates based on newest spawn), kill it where I found it, then go and track the next one. Maybe not the best idea, but definitely don't try pulling them elsewhere, especially if you're playing selos because you'll lose aggro. Keeping them in one spot chances that another forager will pass by and save you the trouble of tracking it as well. But I'd definitely suggest standing by the river instead of tracking all over the place, it's probably why it took me so long to get my mask.

TAKE NOTE: If you're not seeing foragers on track they're in the SE part of the zone, as a post below stated, but the nameds (and I assume also Dronik) CAN spawn there...

The mask takes you up to indifferent with all iksar IF and ONLY IF you are Agnostic. My Veeshan-following Enchanter couldn't even get to dubious with collab and illusion (which is natural, since Veeshan/Dragonkind are the Iksar's enemy)

lvl 51 monk, I think will struggle. Depending on what you have, but tanking this guy at 51 will likely take on its toll due to the duration of battle. Kiting him will work, I've done this guy many times with 53 bard with some jamming. But if you have to get into close quarters battle, I reckon you will need a healer type.

I'd say easy take down given the gear today. Back when the lvl cap was 60 the general classification of gear was about 1/10 of what it is now. I'd say even if you were geared with intricate/defiant stuff and maybe a hot pot or 2 you'd be able to solo this guy np.

This is an easy camp. I did it with a 72 ranger and myself a 69 rogue. What we did was posintion ourselves in about midway between the lake and the end of the zone on the river. We killed alll the froglock foragers we seen and all the named mobs we seen, plus we killed all the adds. We did this for about 45 minutes with the ranger checking track frequentlly. After about 45 minutes he appeared on track and we found and killed him. He droped the mask the first time we killed him. :) hope this helps

Took me about the same too, by coincidence. I just stood still, killed the froggies on the spot, and watched for wandering Nameds. I spotted a Named Tigress (dropped a shammy "See Invis" amulet) and a named Cockatrice (dropped nothing), so figured that was a likely area for Harbinger Dronik to wander past, and then a few minutes later, Dronik glided along, within eyeshot.

He was an easy light-blue con, to a 70 Beastlord, and dropped the Mask. The swarms of Foragers were far more of a handful than he was :D For green cons, they have a ton of hitpoints, and getting 5 at once wandering past, then aggroing, is a **** nuisance!

My little halfling is now Iksar-capable and. being so much taller in Iksar form, can now see more than knees and backsides when backstabbing :D

This isn't a camp exactly. You hunt down froglok foragers and keep them dead.
Several different named creatures can uncommonly spawn instead of a forager,
so getting a specifc named mob is a matter of time.

He used to use the wicked level 49 spell Ice Comet, among others, but now he does less damage
with level 39 spells Immobilize and Elnerick's Entombment of Ice and level 49 spell Rend.

I camped in TT for a number of days...3-4 hours at a clip killing off Foragers and every named that pops. It appears that a named appears ever 4-5 Foragers.

Took a REAL long time to get this guy to pop...there are a number of nameds in the Forager cycle. All of them are wimps to my 58 Ranger and 51 cleric box.

When he did finally pop he was just WNW of the North Tip of the lake and he was HARD compared to the other nameds in the cycle. I was originally gonna just cheal at 40% but his nukes were so bad I had to keep spamming Remedy heals on myself to keep up my HP at a safe level. Total fight took a little less then 1.5 minutes and was a little nervous a few times when health dropped to below 20% but managed to get this sucker and the mask drop for a friends bard.

When confronting him make sure your group knows where the puller is as he was able to root my Ranger quiet easily and I had to run my cleric to him rather then the ranger to the cleric. Also, when I did finally run the cleric to the ranger I got a whole bunch of roaming adds...would have loved to have pulled him to a safe spot instead of playing on his terms.

Added (Quick notes):

Do not attempt with out a tracker
Make sure you can self heal or have a healer if your HP is less then 5KHP (I had 3.5K with Virtue)
Best camp spot I found was at the north tip of the lake right on the shore
Watch out for adds if you can't pull him to your safe camp.
Have patience...Allow lots of time for pop :)

A small guide

Thought I would post a small guide on how to get your Iksar Hide mask. It's meant primarily for bards, but hopefully others will find it helpful also. First, check out my map. It's an EQAtlas map that I have drawn on a little to help me explain things. I'm not a graphic artist though, so excuse the kindergarten drawing skills. Now, on to the guide:

The foragers typically spawn from two positions, roughly marked with my A and B on the map. The corresponding colored lines are their estimated pathing routes. The "Valley" that I have marked on the map is where I tend to kill them, as A. it's close to part of forager A's pathing, and B. it's relatively safe. Other then the ruins with spectrals, mobs very rarely go there.

Killing the foragers is pretty straight forward. Just chant them down in the valley. As soon as one dies, either another forager or a named will pop in it's place (at the spawn point).

You will notice that many posts refer to Harbinger Droniks nukes, and how much they hurt. Well, they do. But to avoid that (and this works with the other named, especially Zoglic, it's good to get him to waste his HT) I would charm him and sic him on another mob. He'll blow as much of his mana as he can, then go to melee. If he's still casting a lot when the first mob dies, sic him on another. Continue doing so until his casting has all but stopped. While he is charmed, keep your Elemental chorus running, just in case charm breaks early and he tries to nuke you. After he has blown his mana, recharm and drag him to the "Valley". Now it's a simple chant kite. I would keep Elemental chorus running, just in case he tries to root you, but that won't happen very often. This tactic is very important when fighting Zoglic, as you want him to blow his mana AND his HT on something other then you.

If all goes well, you'll have your Ikky mask, and possibly an Ikky BP, very shortly. Good luck and I do hope this helps some of you.

PS The mask DOESN'T give any regen. It is for RP purposes/faction (if you're agnostic) only.

EDIT: Also, if the foragers stop popping and there's no named up, head to the SE part of the zone and look for a forager. After you kill that one, they should start popping normally again. Just be careful down there, as there are a few higher level mobs there that will cast on you and ruin your day if you're not careful.

Must be my lucky day, first he pops and 2 spawns later Zoglic does :)))) He's part of forager cycle (for those of you who don't want to scroll) and as stated below he does indeed pop as much as any other mob on the cycle (including Zoglic). I can imagine that after hours and hours of doing the cycle and having neither pop that it can seem as if they are more rare but I've done this cycle often and its jst a matter of luck and jst keeping at it. This, aswell as the ikky bp, sells well and on AB I usually get rid of both for between 5k and 10k very quickly.

His spawn rate seems to be the same as any other in the cycle. I run this cycle every now and then and have killed him twice, both times he dropped the mask. The 1st mask i gave to my bard, the 2nd i put on my trader and checked in bazaar, there were 2 others selling it, 40k and 45k. Seemed WAY too high to pay for a silly illusion. I put it up for 10k just to see if it sells quick, but i have my doubts. If it was all/all maybe, but its not.

Just got this mask tonight (8 June 04)!! Thanks to the previous posts too I might add. Thanks for all the info guys and gals. Just to let you know what I saw. Killed foragers till a named would come up on track, killed the named, then the foragers would show back up on track. Finally got this guy after about two hours. Sicked two frogs on him to suck up the nukes (one innocent bystander, one an add) and then chant kited him around. He got a snare to stick at the very end but by then it was too late for the poor sob. When he popped I found him right outside the cave to Swamp ZL.

I just killed this guy today solo. Being that I am on Stromm I didn't want to bay 25k for the mask. He was very easy at 56 for a bard. I just twisted 3 DoTs with elemental chorus and resisted everything he threw at me. One time my chorus missed a note and I thought I was done because he landed a snare on me, but I just charmed him and let him wait for me to break snare. (I prolly should have had mez up but what the hay). Anyways I'm happy now.

Dont know what your resists are with elemental chorus but with mine at 240+ he still lands huge nukes on me....and thats at 56 as well. I just grab a pet(anything really, preferably hunter) and let them eat his mana heavy nukes and when hes done with them i throw out 3 chants and elemental chorus...after he uses his mana he just tries castin roots which seem to be resisted much more with 240+ mr than the nukes and havin your resists bumping.

I suspect you could solo him with the right resists, but the Iksar Hide Mask is only wearable by bards and rogues, as are most (not all!) of the similar illusion masks and items.

Okay, just solo'd this guy on Tunare 2 minutes ago after going through about 30 foragers, 2 Silvermane's and 2 Squire's (I'm a 54 Bard).

The "Forager Spawn" post on here is all you need to know for hunting him down, except that the best place to look for him normally is just down that zone's stream about halfway to the lake (Exactly where Dronik Spawned as well). As far as the fight went, I did have my MR, CR, and FR resists pumped up to 200 (PR and DR only 40) with Elemental chorus going, so I didn't notice any Ice Comet hit me, if he even tried to cast it. He did however, nail me with a (I think this was the name) Force Spike right off the bat, stunned me for a good 10 seconds, dropping my hps to 50% and leaving me to do nothing but wet myself. After that however, I got Elemental back up, and kited him down to 20% without anything he cast landing. He cast Paralyzing earth and Bonds of force about every few mins. He did land one bonds of force near the end, but by then I had him. Dropped the mask no problem. Just beware of that force spike, it could have easily ruined my day if he'd followed it.

Illusion Masks Do Not Override your faction. The will help adjust it a tiny bit which can help though.

I will also note that as of _right_now_ testing In Game as I write this. I am NOT seeing ANY regen bonus. I am regenerating 2hp/tick standing, and 5hp/tick (seperate 2hp/tick and 3hp/tick if you look closely) sitting without the mask, and the same exact with this mask on. This sucks because I had thought that this was a bonus of the mask as well, however It Does NOT Regen.

Thanks for reminding me that it was Forager's cycle for this,as well as giving a location where to start looking!

AFAIK illusions were never expected to give any hp regen (troll/iksar) but they do adjust your sight (the main reason humans/barbarians get the dark elf mask).

Faction *is* affected by assuming an illusion, about 200pts in my experience. It's not purely the racial conflict as it is the religious part that you can not hide. So gather ye bone chips while ye may, or kill a few thousand more mobs to peg your faction to the top and check your factions without and with illusions once more. (And if you're a bard quickly mem that level 11 song.)

I got him to spawn in the same place (halfway downt the river) after I killed the forager that spawns at the same point only once. I got lucky I guess. The pathing he takes (the forager does also) sends him north, past a little ruined building and finally stopping almost at the northern edge of the zone (sorry, didn't think to grab the locs). He waits there for a few mins, then heads back south. Don't know to where though, b/c that's where I pulled him from. I pulled him east into the little valley to stay away from adds. I'm a 57 ranger btw. Root rotted him with 3 dots until I was almost out of mana, then opened up with trueshot. Not great dam b/c he was rooted, but not too bad either. I had my resist magic and cold on, so the few times he was able to get in casting range, I resisted it all. Took him down to 30 pct before I went in melee style, and he still managed to take me down to 50 pct (had V and was at about 3350 HP full) when he finally died, all from melee. Like I said, I resisted everything with cold and fire resists around 130. Dropped mask, now my baby rogue is carrying it till he can use it in 4 more levels. This mask is generally just good for RP, but that's what I want it for anyway.

Tonight I was trying to get some guildies their Seb keys and we couldn't find the forager so we were gonna try this guy since we thought he was on Forager cycle. I go to track him down and before I even start moving he has nuked our 53 mage dead. Apparently he nuked for 1100hp. We were just a ranger, bard, and mage so we had no real hp buffs or anything and he spanked us. We got away but mage ate dirt. I hate this guy. I don't even want his stupid mask since illusion iksar won't even give regen. I used to have the mask which I bought purely for thinking I'd get regen as an Iksar but it didn't so I sold it and got my 3k back. ***** you Verant, Iksar Illusion is pretty **** useless without regen.

The "skeleton version" is Harbringer Josk. I think he is actually on the hunter cycle, but Im not sure.
Changed his class ??

Don't know if Verant changed his class or what not.
He was a necro last time we went toe to toe...
Alot of HP, has a skelly pet that hits for 20-40 and casts nasty dots.
Spells he casts: Invoke Fear, Torbas' Acid Blast, Scourge, Chilling Embrace...

Stay out of casting range ;)

Harbinger Dronik is and always has been a Wizard. There is however another iksar ghost who is in fact a necro, but he drops no loot. The mask is dropped by Dronik every time he's dropped.

Masks and illusions do change factions. For example, a wood elf bard worshipping Bristlebane can use the dark elf mask to go into the troll city.

I am not sure about the Iksar mask making it possible to go to Cab. Other things factor into faction other than race though... so this mask most likely improves faction, but not enough to make you non-KOS around iksars.

Um, possible... know an agnostic enchanter with iksar illusion isn't KOS to the guards and crusaders, but IS KOS to the Scaled Mystics (shamans, beastlords, and Crusader Quarg, who is on this faction despite being a SK... look out for him, he guards the city in FOB.) Even with the mask you'll probably have to do some faction work to be fully safe in Cabilis, but the mask is a big step in the right direction.

where to pull

For forager cycle, best spot to pull is just down from the swamp zone in, follow little stream south a little way. foragers pop all around that area and sometimes regretably near sebbilis (I hate those long pulls).

Kill forager, pop this guy and others
This guy is easy

My Firiona Vie guild has chain killed this guy and others on the forager cycle for many an iksar mask.

His only issue is the nukes on the puller. First time my (then) 39 Ranger pulled him I got hit for 1140 pts and died (only had 1220 total). Farmed Skyshrine a little, got some sentry for resists, went back, pulling with him hitting me for 400 on initial pull .. no problem.

We chain killed him, the crusador, hangman, tiliak and others for 2 or 3 nights. forager cycle does rock for pp drops. We gained one ikky bp, 3 or 4 iksar masks, 3 hangmans nooses and countless lesser drops. Great xp for a group of mid to low 40's too ;)

My advice, do the forager cycle.

can somone give me tips on killing this?

We dropped him last night. Full group of 53 war, 54 dru, 48 cler, 48 rog, 46 rog, and 52 mnk. Hard fight. Almost lost druid. He seems to prefer targeting healers. Druid pulled him back to wall near the EJ zone line. She got nailed for 1100 dmg in one shot so we figure an SK. I see now it was Ice Comet from reading the boards. Anyway, it was a tough fight. Protect your healers. Even the rogues with 250pt backstabs could not pull the aggro off. He melee's hard, too. We were getting tagged for up to 180 dmg per hit with an 80 minimum.

He dropped the mask that time. Seems to be either on a timer or spawns after killing off enough Froglock Foragers. We were actually hunting Sebelis Keys. Druid found him where the Forager's spawn.

How often does this guy drop the mask? Is it like the Mask of Deception and drop every time? Thanks for the help.

It does improve your faction with iksar, first off. But it won't take you from ready to attack up to dubious on its own, you need to do some faction work also. Still, it helps a lot! Keep in mind that any illusion only affects your apparent race... they still know your class and religion. Crusader Quarg for one won't take kindly to say, a Tunare-worshipping iksar bard!

Two, having iksar illusion on grants you infravision (if you're a race that doesn't have it, which pretty much only applies to human bards, human rogues, and barbarian rogues) and also gives you iksar regen... an extra 2hp a tick.

Three, yes, partly it is a toy... some bards and rogues just want to look like an iksar for the novelty of it.

These three reasons, plus the rarity, are why this mask sells for this much.

Correction - This mask does NOT grant Iksar Regeneration.

This is a toy for high level people with extra money. :)

OK, not entirely. The Faction adjustment can help, and the Infravision isn't half bad either.

He is hard to pull, keeps stopping to cast and you lose him. He cast on me for 1150 dmg in one boom multiple times (Ice Comet) which I didn't seem to resist (I'm level 46, he was a Red con).

Keep running back to group for C Heals and don't mess around with low health (under half).

Forager Spawn

It goes something like this

Forager Spawns

Forager
Harbringer Dranik (Iksar Hide Mask)
Hangman (Hangman Noose)
Dragon Tail (Nothing)
Crusader Zoglic (Iksar BP)
Flaythe (nada)
Keepr lasnik- Staff
Champion Arlek (Knobbed War Staff)

Now you camp at swamp of no hope zone, have a tracker and kill forager. After you kill foragers a couple of times a name will pop, random. Sometimes after the name is down you don't see any mobs up. I call this the "Missing Link." What you do is head over to wear you turns eb key in( Emeperaor) Pass the ghosts a little and track, you'll see a forager. If not just perimeter the zone. After that kill him and the ones will spawna round swamp zone again

Hope this Helps, Got BP and Mask in about 1 hour
