To be a wizzy is to be living on the edge, the edge of always stealing aggro, and I like always living on the edge.

Duel box 52 BL and 54 DRU: Pulled with snare -> BL failed to gain agro -> he hit me 8 times and I was dead (not even enough time to turn and run, he must be hasted). BL pet fought him for about 45 sec which was just long enough for me to run to the cave ent since I had been snared myself from a caster. Pet died and I just stopped so I would know where my corpse was (7 guards agroed me with the Overseer so it didn't take long anyways, screen went to reload from 30% health hehe).

Didn't have any Summons problems, of course I wasn't alive enough for him to use it hehe.

I'm going back now with what I know here and will pull with Sha's Lethargy so correct toon has agro. I'm sure I can solo him(scratch that - duo him) and I want to see what he really drops (other EQ sites have more listed, such as 2 different items both w/ +5 dex and resists).

I'll be back in 30min to post another CR msg, or to beat my own chest in glory.



As promised I'm back. Here's the info: pulled w/ Lethargy, /pet attack, Swarm and Breath on. Heal pet using all my mana and hit another swarm, join melee and he dies at 20% health on me. Definitely not an easy kill but he is doable. He did summon my pet 7 times - not that he had to, pets are the best kind of group members, do or die. dropped a decent belt that I upgraded to:

Gnerpokkel's Belt
Magic, Lore, No drop
AC5, dex5, int2, agi5, hp25, svDis2, svMag2

also a heart which I will be researching to see if I can use for a quest, and some trash no drop claws (Claw of the Grunt - no drop 10/32)

One last thing, at the end my BL pet attacked my Dru for no apparent reason (I still had control of him, no spell on him other than "Heat Blood"). I didn't see any "pet mezzed" messages and I wasn't dueling either. Oh well, just ordered him off.

While trying to find the entrance to AC, I ran into him. I slowed him to 50% and my 62 pet killed him with only 1 pet heal. I was suprised at the amount of HP and the damage he was dealing to my pet. But overall was an easy kill. He dropped his scalp, the staff and a neckpiece.
pretty tough

Just went down to try to get this guy to spawn last night. We were there through about 4-6 of spawns and he didn't show. But, I was pleased that a guildie and I were able to hold the site well.

A CAUTION TO ANYONE TRYING THIS: There is a room with lots of mobs in the mines. It has a large bucket on the right as you enter and the overseer spawns on the left. When the overseer re-pops in this room, SO DO ALL THE OTHER MOBS!

So, you need to pull the mobs out of the room, or you will fight everything at once!

I don't know if that's true for all of the rooms that have an overseer (I've only seen this one). However, I did find that as a necro, Shadow Vortex was a perfect way to pull here. Nothing but your target will agro, and you can pull any one non-caster out of the room. Casters are dicy, because other mobs will agro when they cast on you. Best luck is had if you pull casters by casting from max range and running fast back out of the room.

I went to and it's a search site for buying stuff off the internet. By time the page loaded, 5 popups agroed my screen too.

Do you have stock in Maglo?? Don't post sites like that here. (if it's changed since you've been there, I understand that and withdraw my statement, but this is the first time I've went to a site pointed to from posts here and was actually angry; not just dissapointed but actually angry).

Just so anybody else who sees this knows what they're getting into before they go there.

Thanks for correction Gnoshfurt. I guess I can understand that. I use F7 before sending even email cause I can't spell. And I think I will be surfing around the Magelo (correct spelling) site for info. looks like another good sorce of info.

Also, sorry for being so tempermental Pohl.

yeah he's a pain in the ***. i just soloed him, though it wasn't easy. actually, i didn't solo him 100%, some cleric and rogue found me fighting him and the cleric CH'ed me, though i had just cast torpor.

dropped a sword, mask and scalp.

next fight i'll know what to expect and should be much easier :).

We're going to try it, soon.
One of my guildies, 42 Vah Shir Beastlord came up with the wristband item. <drool!> So we're planning to take a couple of full 6's with a couple of chanters to try to make the deck a little more even.
From what I've read here, we'll need it.
But let me tell you, a haste item that proc's in the 22% area? Oh, baby, I'm gonna be there! We rangers need all the help we can get when it come to dishing it out.
I'll let you know what happens, but in the meantime wish us luck. We're gonna need it.

AC 12
Skill Mod: Kick 5%
STR +5 DEX +5 hp 20
Wt: 7.5 Size: Medium
Race: All

He spawned in the first room as you follow the right wall into the mines. Approx 5 mobs immediately around him, two miners and two guards a bit away, and 3 wandering Grimling Foremen (who heal) at the top of the slope. Our group consisted of: Warrior 56, Druid 54, Druid 54 and Cleric 39. Fairly easy fight but he had a surprisingly lot of hp.

Here is my story. A 60 druid had found this named spawn and had aparently died trying to solo him. We were the only two in the zone at the time so he asked me,a 52 paladin,to help him kill it.I met him at the TM zone and he brought his 51 cleric along for more support. We invised up and went to where he was. We started to clear grimlings to make it easyer for us. There was a cadsomething healing the grimlings we were killing so it was slow going. Well I went LD and thought I'm dead. My comp sadly has a 350mhz processor so it was slow getting back on. When I got back both the 60druid and 51cleric were dead. The Overseer Gizaplank had only a very tiny amount of HP left. Needless to say I was getting my butt kicked, I used LoH's and believe it or not I killed him. I got all the exp and looted all he had. He dropped the Swordmans Armband, Grizaplanks scalp, and a Grunts Staff or Grimling Grunts staff its a 2hb 28/50 all all.(Cant remember name exactly) I ooc'ed for the druid to come get me, he did and I told him what happend. He wasnt happy I looted everything (couldnt help myself, plus I had very little chance getting out so why not?)but wanst really mad either. So now I'm hasted and just want to know what % haste the armband gives.

You are going off the haste link that allakhazam gives to every haste item.......chances are this has a set percent of haste....if it gave 50 percent haste.....everyone would be killin this guy to loot it
I just bought my computer today, i had some trouble turning it on, but i think i got it figured out!

Well I attacked him, thinking he was 40-42. He conned blue to a 52 mage. Should have been an easy fight. He must have had the bracer on cause he was hasted for sure, and my 51 earth pet went down quickly (and when I say quickly, I mean within seconds). Needless to say, I gated....AND GOT SUMMONED (bound myself at the outpost). He hit me for a max of 166 and I didn't stand a chance.


PS, pet pathing blows on the moon.

Not sure of exact loc but if you go into the caverns that lead to Acrylia Caverns.
Go in until you have to choose left or right. Go right.
He has a PH Name = Grimmling Overseer.
Kill him till Overseer Gizgaplank pops.
There is another spot in the same cave that a Grimmling Overseer pops at but it is longer to get to than this one.
Hope this helps ya.

Camped this guy last night... or tried to anyway. We arrived to find the ph (place holder) and proceeded to take him down 7 consecutive times with out any sign of the named. We were forced to abandon camp when final notices started hitting for server patch.

I had camped this guy twice before (I got the mask, neck, legs... of which I only use the mask), so I know it was the right spot. Those times he spawned frequently, and his ph was the more rare one to see.

He is not an easy mob to take down, his loot beyond the mask and the armband is not that great, and if this spawn rate is any indication of changes to him, then I would say this camp is not worth the time.

# May 09 2002 at 5:14 PM Rating: Default
If you did in fact solo him then you sir are seriously a bad mother.
My group killed him twice to day. Our 60 Warrior needed two or three CH's the first time when we didn't have someone to slow or haste us. only needed one the time we did. We got the earing and some boots I believe.

This guy is one tough son-of-a-gun. Me (a 40warr) a 41 monk, a 39 cleic and a 44 wizzie tried to take this guy. Bad idea. The monk that pulled was at half health when he got back after FD the other grimlies. After that i tanked him, and Yes he hits hard for a damn 42 he was yellow. He hit me one round for like a total of 570 some dmg. The cleric was tryin his best to hold him off, but I died, the monk barely survived, he had to run while the wizard tried to kite him a bit, he died. The monk came back in at full health, and killed him. When He finnally died he dropped nothing worth the time. Thats right nothing but those quest items, (forget the names atm). Very tough mother brother, i recommend a group of 6 mid 40's. Maybe we were just unlucky, cuz we only killed him once, but GL to anybody who tries to kill him without any trouble. Later :)

If you go to swordsman's armband under Equipment search it shows that Overseer Gizgaplank drops it but when you go to this page it doesnt say he drops it. Its all on the same web page cant they link the stuff also why does it say a mob is one lvl under the bestiary and when you click on the mob is says he is a diff lvl? i have email them on this but am still looking for answer if they need help sorting all this stuff i will help hehe:)

this guy is the biggest undercon i have seen. cons even to a lvl 40 but hits for 190 can quad and will summon you like a lvl 51+. he seem to have the hp of a low 40 mob but your group in the 40's would have to be really good.

Me and some guildies decided to kill this guy for a no drop wrist item that has a supposed 30% haste and some stats like 10 ac str dex and sv something, don't really know never saw it but its a good item and managed to get 3 of em while i was there after about 3hours of camping, gotta kill the ph overseer though.
