If anyone has the ear of Daybreak they should speak to them about this spawn.

This is for Epic 1; not 2.0 and the spawn rate should be better. I decided to get XP for this guy since I was going for epic 1.0 and found my way to the room; luckily it is very clearly marked on the map.
I camped him for three days then life got in the way and then I would pop in when I got back to computer. Of course as I expected; I lost the room to some higher level cleric; not upset for those reading this and thinking that is way I am ranting. I am ranting about the spawn rate.

It has been almost 5 days and it seems that there still is no spawn. It should not take over a week for a spawn. I have seen post of his place holder but I put to you that if the holder spawns ever 10 to 20 min; and the do; and the main does not spawn even after a week; can you call them a place holder. Yes the time I spent there a Large Fire goblin, Fire Goblin Shaman and several others of the same type did spawn; but no Lord Gimblox.

Time to get this guy out of bed after 24 hours so we all have a chance at his ring.
You gotta be kidding...

I think this spawn is absolutely insane. A bottleneck would be an improvement! This is trying to drag an elephant through an eyedropper. I have waited 6 hours just to GET the camp from someone that had it for 23 hours WITHOUT ONE SPAWN.

There is rare then there is this guy....

EDIT : I have camped this guy three times for a total of 24 hours. I haven't seen ONE spawn. He's a unicorn. He doesn't exist...

I thought consolidating the information for people playing on TLPs might be helpful, so here goes. I've been camping Gimblox for guildies/MQ in preparation for Kunark (Lockjaw TLP) for about a day (1 ring so far, 35 minutes into the camp...what?), and I've noticed a couple things. The spawn location that Kylwen mentions is correct. The spawn timer for Gimblox and his PHs appears to be 15:30, not the 19 minutes mentioned in previous posts. I ran a 19 minute timer as well as a stopwatch on my phone and there would be a pop every 15 and a half minutes. Also, Gimblox has two PHs: the fire goblin shaman as well as "large fire goblin".

Hope this is helpful for any and all trying to get the ring. Good luck!

I recently did this camp for several hours for my cleric. Your information is spot on. =)

Solid info

After reading varying information, I decided to post accurate up to date info.

EqAtlas Map Between 17 and 18, the throne room. Only negative coordinates in this zone as stated. Took about 5 respawns to get him to spawn, on north side of room. Room has 3 spawns, north side, south side, and on floor in center.

They certainly changed the spawn rate since the last time I did this. Started a 85 cleric and my epic 1.0; this is the fist step since I always considered this the hardest. Took less then 3 hours to spawn compare to the 3 to 5 day spawn back in 2012.

Been camping Inferno Goblin Wizards for 2 days looking for the Heart of Fire, and because I also have a Cleric, I have been killing Lord Gimblox's placeholder for 2 days. No heart and no Gimblox yet.....

EDIT: Finally, the heart dropped, 67th kill. Still no Gimblox however.

EDIT2: Day 3, Gimblox finally popped. Never want to see this zone again!!

Been working on my box cleric quest, and this guy took 24 hours (about, the server went down for the tuesday update of course), finally spawned and killed him a few minutes ago on FV server. Luckily I had my cleric camped in the spot so he was able to loot it... this is one of the items on FV that is No Trade so make SURE you are there to loot it.

After 33 hours straight of killing the PH every 19 minutes he spawned and dropped the ring. I consider myself an extremely patient person but this camp almost got the better of me. Good luck fellow clerics, you are going to need it.

This was much nicer than camping Bergurgle, which took me several weekends.

What I did was bring my 51 cleric and her tank merc to Grimblox's room, which sounds hard to find but it's really not that complicated. I parked them both on the left sofa, /afk'd and kept my "lord" audiotrigger up from camping in Lake Rathe before. I got lucky and within half an hour, I heard my audiotrigger going off. He died very quickly.

Just a simple strategy that many others on here have mentioned using; there really isn't a better way to do it.

Hey all, just wanted to drop by and say i just started my clerics 1.0 today. Figured i would get the camping areas out of the way first. Ran into Skyfire, pulled a huge train and got 2 shards right off the bat. I logged for dinner, and when i logged back in pulled another train, and BAM got 2 more shards! What luck! Went to Lake Rathe and camped Lord Bergurgle. camped him for about an hour and he spawned, grabbed crown and headed my ranger off to SolA while i level my cleric. Currently leveling cleric and waiting in SolA for spawn on Lord Gimblox.

I can see having to wait some for an epic spawn but this is ridiculous. Six hours a day for three days. Lost count of the number of PHs. Not a good way to keep your paying customers, SOE.

Edit to add: And still no Lord Gimblox.

Only took me the better part of a Sunday, about 20+ PHs.
Didnt stay the whole time straight thru, left and went back because it's just TOO boring.
When you realize that SOE gets paid by the MONTH, you will know why they do stuff like this to their paying customers. And it ain't to "enhance your gaming experience".
Then again, we are the saps that pay for this and love it. Sorta like a dom sub relationship : /

Good luck man. I remember those shards taking FOREVER. I was camped out in Skyfire for what seemed to be an eternity (little bit every day for about a week I think). It was back in 2003 or so, so it's a little hazy.
Good luck - it's definitely worth having for raids :)
