    Believe I find a spawn point at n2050 p3200 for brutlings in WW. Just killed a runtling by this spot and then I hear that heavy bvreathing. I turn and a skulking brutling is 5 feet away and headed directly away from me. Killed him, got choppers. Cant see how he would have been able to get near me without me hearing sooner if he didnt just spawn.

    A couple of pieces of information I noted in doing this quest - while the skulking brutlings do in fact wander to the east of the bandits, they seem to spawn to the SW of that location - I had 3 on screen at one time once I had a tracker to help me figure out this correction - also, I noticed what appears to be a static spawn of 3 brutlings in the cave that leads to the crypt of dalnir in the upper left corner of the zone - too late for this to help me, but maybe this will help some of you (going to do the combine for the 7th skullcap now!)

    Got the Intact choppers on my first kill. Since I don't see exact info posted here I will post my info. Goto -1130, 4100 and there is a spot many mobs path to and just get stuck. It's far up the wall so don't think you're going the wrong way. I suppose just killing mobs that wander into that path trap or just around will do but then again I was lucky so I can't give very good mob clearing info. Good luck...

    Can anyone tell me if the 4th necro cap quest is broken? Me and my friends and guildies have been watching the swamp for weeks, and not one of us has yet to see any sign of a man-eating creeper whatsoever!!! Is anyone else out there having the same problem? (hm.. I see no one has posted on this since December 2002....???)

    I found some down the path to the right from Cab. But I think they were on the trees or underground because I couldn't see them at all. Finally, I found one by the giant fort and the intact dropped in the first kill. I hope this is the correct item for the quest. I can't find any creeper at all in SONH.

    Don't tal k to me about brutling choppers

    The scalebone femur ("Cracked Femur") is easy - you should be spending lots of time in Kurn's Tower anyhow.

    The telson is also easy - heartsting scorpions abound in the north side of the pit and around the base of Kurn's Tower. If you're unable to combine the items, it's probably because you don't have a telson with poison - that's what happened to me.

    The creeper cabbage dropped from every man eating creeper I've killed. I had good luck finding them between the spire (next to the Iksar outcast camp) and the water next to it in the NW corner of SONH. Just follow the path to the left/north as you come out of Cabilis. Be sure you don't accidentally eat the cabbage. (I did.)

    As for the *&^!& brutling choppers...I killed nine of them before I got one that was intact. I camped the valley to the east of the Iksar outcast camp - it's mentioned in the other posts - several times. (Gathering shadows helps a lot - otherwise you'll have to fight goblins every two minutes, whether you want to or not.) If you're there at sundown, one and sometimes two skulking brutlings spawn relatively quickly. I never saw one in this valley during the day, though. I finally got my intact choppers when I was standing near the wall of the giant fort in the middle of the day, looking for giant saplings to wallop. A skulking brutling jumped me, much to my pleasure - broken choppers - grrr - but ANOTHER one attacked me as I was meditating after the fight. That one finally coughed up the intact choppers. I was along the west wall of the fort, just south of where it meets the stream at it northwest corner (approx. loc: -700, +1600 - right against the wall, not down the steep slope to the west). Maybe their pathing takes them NE along the S side of the stream running from the camping valley toward the fort???

    Allright, here's the skinny from my trip through this quest.

    1) The femur. Got mine in Kurn's Tower, from a corpse that someone else had attacked and slain. Piece of cake. In and out. You could use Invis to Undead to make the time you spend there even safer. Since the femur is NODROP, most people will probably be happy to let you loot it if you ask politely. The greater scalebones that carry these were yellow to a 13 necro.

    2) The telson. Got this in Field of Bone, in the Pit. There are many heartstings. Kill one. They were yellow to a 13 necro (some were blue/black). Make sure to get one with venom! There are two types - one has venom and the other doesn't.

    3) The Brutling Choppers. I found a brutling just north/west of Bandit Lake in WW. Approximate location was -1080, +3810. Conned yellow to a 13 necro.

    4) Creeper. Found the Man Eating Creeper using Gather Shadows. Cast a pet, Heat Blood, send pet, tank creeper. Was a close fight, since I had little mana left after the pet and heat blood. Won anyway. Conned yellow to a 13 necro. (See a pattern here yet?) Approximate location was +500 +1000. You may have to look aroud a bit.

    Dangers to be wary of:

    1) Near where I found the brutling, there's a pathing error. I found no fewer than 8 goblins (several of which were dark bliue!) trapped by it. I agroed one, and got the rest. Needless to say I had to resume my hunt after a CR. They're near the zone edge, on the west side of the lake.

    2) Near where I found the creeper there are many insatiable nibblers (yellow). I also found a Froglok Berserker (red). These could ruin your search quickly. Keep an eye out for them.

    Good luck to all my fellow Iksar necromancers! On to the next cap quest!

    Skulking Brutlings
    # Jul 02 2002 at 2:06 PM Rating: Default
    After looking around for a few days I ran into many different kinds of brutes and had almost gone with the people who said the skulking brutlings had been renamed. I finally found one on the plain at the base of the final water fall below the bandit lake at neg 1274 pos 2991.

    Guess you have to be lucky to find one. I had spent hours at all the /loc mentioned in other posts and never saw one before yesterday.

    Good luck and good hunting.

    A lot of this info has been posted, but I want to confirm a few things that I found.

    The telson and femur....very easy. I think those have been covered pretty extensively by the other posts. Those are the easy ones to get. Let me skip to the Man Eating Creeper and Skulking Brutling.

    Neither was that bad, once I found out where they really liked to hang out. From my experience, the very bottom post by Seronami was the best post, when it came to the Skuling Brutling. That valley in the southern part of the zone around
    -2240, +2730 was pretty good. I wandered about the rest of WW quite a while and never saw any. I went back and forth from the Cabilis gate to the Bandit lake about 3 times, when I finally spotted a Skulking Brutling, very close to the location I gave just now. Conned dark blue to me. I killed it, dropped a shattered chopper. Bah, took me 40 minutes to see one, so I hated not getting an easy one. But I hung around the area, killed some wandering goblins...a few were dark blue, a few light blue and some greenies to my 13th level Iksar necro. Anyways, sure enough, I got a second chance. This time, I got the drop. Woo hoo! By the way, this Skulking Brutling conned blak to me. So the level on Ilia's Bestiary of 12-13 seemed right on to me. Probably took me an hour or so total in WW.

    Last thing for me was Swamp of No Hope to find the Man Eating Creeper. This really wasn't too bad for me. I found a part of an island that was a good place, around loc +1000, +1500, right next to the Iksar head laying on the ground next to a pillar base. In this area, various Swamp mobs came through. Most of them conned from dark blue to yellow to my 13th level Iksar. I hung out there, killed a few things, and after a while, a Man Eating Creeper came through. This particular one conned yellow to me, but it had no tricks up its sleeves and died fairly easily. I probably spent 20 minutes in the Swamp. Altogether, the quest took me 2 hours. I would estimate that if you concentrated on it, it's possible to finish the quest in an hour. And this can definitely be done at level 13. And I'm very untwinked by the way. Hope this helps.

    You're looking for the intact choppers from a skulking brutling. There are also intact brutling choppers from a >pygmy< skulking brutling, which are for one of the iksar monk shackle quest, so make sure to broadcast the /location of the intact choppers from a pygmy, you'll make a munkies' day! There are choppers from the skulking runtlings, as well, so make sure you're hunting the correct mob.

    The first time I saw the brutling, I attacked with spells and my pet, got broken choppers. Second time I saw him, I dismissed my pet, and just DOTed him and Siphoned Life until he was dead. Then he dropped the intact choppers.

    As for his pathing, twice I noticed his path took him from the south portion of the valley with all the rocks in it, to the western edge of the giant fort. After running into the edge for about 30 seconds, he despawned and seemed to pop right back on the south side of the valley and ran the same path again.

    Brutling Choppers
    # Mar 27 2002 at 2:07 PM Rating: Default
    Well fello bone crunchers, a little post to help my necro friends, choppers were tough to get but finally, success. (I had to find them twice so I had some experience). K, go the the bandit lake (-1300 +4000), careful there are two lakes. I followed the stream from the lake downstream to the first waterfall. Camped at the top of the waterfall looking down and to the east. A brutling comes right up the waterfall heading for the lake. Got him here twice so its good! I had rangers and druids tracking a few times, its a long camp (covered south west corner for six days until I finally just camped this spot. Hope this helps, on the the next quest! (Started this at level 17 and ended at level 16..dangerous neck of the woods all!)

    # Nov 01 2001 at 11:37 AM Rating: Decent
    Apparently, Mr. Cazic-Thule took pity on me this day after camping the Crypt Raider for over 15 hours....

    Completed this quest at level 13 in about an hour and a half.

    Hop over to The Field of Bone, and head to the section of the pit under Kurn's Tower. Two of the four mobs you need to kill are in this area.

    First, the Scalebone skellies can be found here. Most of them /con'd yellow to me, with the occasional blue, even, and red thrown in. The scalebones that you need will look like they are holding a wooden stake. This is the "Cracked Femur" that you need. There's also a good chance that you'll see a bunch of these already down if there's a lot of players hunting in the pit, and the femur is No-Drop.

    Second, the Heartsting Scorpions also abound in this area. Again, most of them were yellow to me at 13, but with the nice complement of level 12 spells that you have, it shouldn't pose much of a problem if you take them one at a time and be careful. They have the No-Drop Heartsting Telsons. Some of them have the charge of poison bolt on them, some don't, but just make sure you snag one that's got it. Again, because they are No-Drop, a lot of people just leave them on the corpses, so make sure you check them out as well.

    Now over to the Swamp of No Hope (home of the elusive Escaped Froglok - If you've gotten this far, you know what I mean). Head over to /loc +1000, +1500. There's a couple of sets of ruins here on this island with some static spawns. These spawns range from Man-Eating Ferns, Froglok Tuk Warriors, and some nibblers. They /con'd blue to yellow to me at 13. Just kill everything on this little island, and it won't be too long before you see a Man-Eating Creeper. Take him out and grab your cabbage. As mentioned in earlier posts, make sure you either put it in the bank, or bury it at the bottom of your inventory so you don't eat it. I ended up staying here for about 20 minutes before I saw one.

    Last step - Go to Warslik's Woods. After reading some of the theories / horror stories of trying to find the Skulking Brutling posted here, I went with the most common one. Head over to the Bandit Lake at /loc -1500, +4000. Stay invised and just scan the surrounding area. I saw a Skulking Brutling just slightly NW of the lake up on a hill. It can be a ****** trying to find one because of all the darn trees, but their orange color helps them stick out a bit. Apparantly I lucked out because it only took me about 5 minutes of searching to find one. I ran near it while still invised, and summoned a pet outside of his aggro range. He /con'd yellow at 13. Heat Blood, send the pet, and lifetap/leach until he turns to flee. At this point I decided to test the "soft kill" theory. When he began to flee, I reclaimed my pet and cast darkness on him. That caused him to just stand there until he died. Looted intact choppers the first try.

    Combine all your items in the bag and turn them in. Say goodbye to your apprenticeship, young Necromancer!

    This guide worked perfectly for me. Had a Femur already looted from Kurn's. Went to the pit in FoB and found a scorpion in about 10 mins, first one dropped the Telson with poison. Headed to the idland in SoHN and killed everything around the ruins for about 30-45 minutes. The second creeper I found dropped the cabbage. Next, headed to the lake in WW. I had been there 5 seconds and looked northwest of the lake on the hill and there was a Brutling. Dropped intact choppers on him and headed back to Cab. No sweat.

    brutling choppers and creeper cabbage
    # Oct 30 2001 at 12:19 PM Rating: Default
    Phew! Finally got the brutling choppers, and I just wanted to pass on the info in case it could help a fellow adventurer.

    The sticky spot at about neg 1100, pos 3800 in Warsliks Woods is the only place I found any skulking brutlings, and that's where I got my intact choppers.

    As for the cabbage, I found that pretty quickly after following the road from Cabilis out. Cross the island with the escaped frogloks, then continue across one more island. There were about three man-eating creepers on the third island. Good luck!

    Buy the granite pebbles from a lower level player that can loot the shackles. Th shackles are No Drop but the pebbles the Toilmaster gives for them are not.

    I have an Iskar on FV. Due to combine failures on the bone granite powder, I collected shackles from levels 8 - 11, but I never received the trivial message. At 11, all the escaped froggies were green to me.

    The Froglok Escorts drop a flute and I did get trivial messages on them once they greened out. The flute they drop is used in a non-necro quest, I think I read it was for monks.

    I forget what to say to get the bag, but to initiate the conversation just hail him. I started this quest at level 11, and finally finished it at level 23, so the exact phrases escape me at the moment. He says something about gathering new components. Ask him What new components, and he should starting talking about the quest.

    Where I found the Creeper Cabbage

    I haven't completed this quest yet, in fact I'm yet to succeed at making that stupid Bone Granite Power for the previous quest, stupid Smithing skill.....anyway, I ust thought I'd say where I found the Creeper Cabbage. You swim across to the island where the Escaped Frogloks are said to spawn (that is, you follow the road from Cabilis and swim across the water to the near island), and then head off to the left, stying on the same island, till you see a hill with some broken Iksar statues on it. I have killed 2 Man Eating Creepers there, the first of which I killed because I felt likt it, unaware that it drops the Creeper Cabbage, then decided to keep the Cabbage, which I accidentally ate some time later. I went back to the same place and killed another Man Eating Creeper and recieved another Creeper Cabbage. I have had no difficulty with this, I think it conned blue to me the first time (I think I was about level 18 or 19), and green the second (I was 19 or 20). I hope this helps. I had no difficulty with it.
    As for the Skulking Brutlings, I have seen about 2 ever, and they were in the northeast section of Warslik's Woods, at the junction in the path where north leads to Field of Bone, west leads to Goblin Fort, and south leads to Cabilis and Giant Fort. This is probably not much help, but it's where I've seen Skulking Brutlings, and just for your information I think they conned black when I was about 12-ish.

    The heartsting telson with poison-
    This component is fairly easy to get because heartstings are low level and will always drop a telson, the problem is there are 2 types of telsons, one with, and one without poison, however both are lore items and if you have one you can not have the other, so before plucking the telson be positive it is the one you need. its fairly easy to tell the difference, the telson with poison will have the effect of poison bolt, this is the one you want. The other telson will just be a waste of time and space if you try to use it in your component bag, find this in the field of bone.

    The Scalebone femur-
    You cant miss this one, easiest of the 4 components carried by Greater Scalebones. It identifies as "a cracked femur" but i assure you that it is the correct component and you can usually find a dozen of them lying around in kurns tower on corpses.

    The Brutling choppers and Creeper cabbage-
    I camped both of these boys for days at the above locations and never came across any, however thats not to say they dont spawn there, i just never seen one there.

    i found the brutling at appx. 1600, -1800 as i was passing through with my shaman on the way to the GF and tossed a few nukes on him and made a fast camp and a haul **** trip with my necro to get my intact brutling choppers. i have seen a brutling corpse in this area before right on the main trail from FOB to the GF where the trail to the goblin fort intersects.

    the creeper which i found at appx. -1800, 2600 appeared to spawn after i knocked knuckles with a froglok tuk shaman right next to me, conned blue to me at 16 but didnt drop the cabbage. 5 minutes later i offed another froglok tuk shaman and in the same fashion a creeper spawned within my sight and my no mana half-dead self and my near dead pet started whaling on it, this one conned white and killed us, but as i got back to my corpse he was in the area and was a quick tango and dropped his cabbage. For the record so there is no mistake the cabbage IS a meal and can be eaten, so it might be a good idea to carry your component sack 3/4 full and plenty of food and water so youre not re-doing this portion of the quest, or quickly making it to the bank to preserve this invaluable veggy.

    After combining these items in your compnent bag it will seal itself off, return that with youre 3rd rank skullcap to Master Kyvix in the tower of death and you'll get your darkbinder.

    Just a note FYI... I was hoping since the 4th rank of necromancer was the end of your "appreniship" so says Master Kyvix that it would have a different, more sophisticated and experienced look to it past the apprentice skull caps but was sadly dissapointed, so dont be suprised when your hard work and accomplishment leaves you looking like a newbie all over again.
    Found Brutlings and Creeper
    # May 05 2001 at 2:47 AM Rating: Default
    I managed to find two brutlings after a lot of looking and eventually having help from a druid who had tracking. The first brutling was in the valley as described below around loc neg 1900, pos 2500 (middle of the valley). I stood there for quite a while (few hours) and saw a few other skulking runtlings but no brutlings. With a druid's help we found some pygmy brutlings (which are blue dangerous to level 21) near the iksar camp that's west of the giant fort along the path. We killed a couple of those. The pygmy brutlings had intact pygmy choppers, but I don't think those are the right items. Not sure if it's related, but we then found a brutling who seemed to be stuck with some goblins around loc neg 1210, pos 4050. It's hard to see anything with all the **** trees around there, but there was about 4 or 5 mobs seemingly stuck there between some trees. One was a brutling. Be careful though cause the gobs will gang up on you. Luckily the 2nd brutling had an intact chopper. The druid had also gone around killing any runtlings on track which may have helped.

    BTW, I found the creeper cabbage on a man-eating creeper in the swamp of no hope around loc pos 2730, pos 730. I spent about 6 hours in that general area around the spire and saw two creepers. The first was beyond the spire and the 2nd at the above loc. The 2nd one had the cabbage.

    Good luck.

    Get this I found both the Creeper Cabbage and Intact Brutling Choppers after a Half hour of searching combined. I then combined them with the wrong Telson, even though I had read warnings against it here. I simply wasn't sure if I had the right one or not and thought, if I had the wrong one, no big deal. I can everthing back in a an hour. Hit the combine button and promply spent the next twelve hours futily searching for the choppers and the cabbage. I hate myself right now. You can be sure I have the right telson now though.

    The Skulking Brutlings finally showed up!!!

    This is what I had to do:

    1. Logged in with my Ranger first. Was able to track multiple MOBs stuck under the world.
    2. Logged back in with my Necro, and petitioned.
    3. Waited at the rock in the valley suggested by Silentbob (neg2208 pos2490)
    4. After GM cleared all the stuck MOBs, about 15 mins later the Brutlings started showing up.

    I got the intact on the second brutling. One thing to note was before the GM left, I asked how many brutlings were stuck under ground, and he said "Only one stuck under ground, but another under ground just not like you think."

    I think this was a hint to me to check out the tunnel leading to the lake of ill omen. Very close to where I was hunting. Possible spawn point, or perhaps they wonder into the tunnel from time to time...?

    Good luck hunting to you all!!!

    Kind of off the subject of this quest but...i have seen mobs get stuck "under the world" in the field of bone also, then they can attack you, but you cant hit them with melee or spells in think, guards wont help you either, all you can do is zone. Just my 2cp.

    I just finished this quest at lvl 23. I sat in that valley that everyone else says to, but i was on other side. It was right by a rock, i just gathered some shadows and sat there. Everything was green at 23, and the brut was easy to kill. I saw two that dropped shattered, but the third had intact. This rock is at loc neg2208 pos2490.
    I could see everything that walked through the valley, just have to be patient. I camped this monkey for about 3 hours, and i saw three in that time. I hope this helps solve this pain in the **** quest.

    Thanks for the very specific location! Grin.. I was able to find it very easily!

    I've been having one problem though..... the brutiling is just not showing up! grin

    I'm on XEV. I camped the spot for 5 hours each day for the past few days. Last night I was a bit frustrated, so I grabbed my ranger, and started looking. My tracking skills are up to 105. I searched all over the zone, and could not find one. I finally started tracking a brute in the hopes that it would lead me to a brutiling. I tracked the brute only to discover that it was bugged, and located under the world! I petitioned, and the GM located 30 mobs stuck under the world. I logged back on with my necro, hopeing that it would spawn correctly. Waited another hour, before switching with the ranger. Once again, I tracked many mobs under the world. Tried petitioning, and waited an hour before giving up. Does anybody think this is just a problem with XEV, or is this something that happens on all the servers??

    WELL, that was fun
    # Feb 25 2001 at 1:20 AM Rating: Default
    Uhg. I absolutly hated this quest. I tryed at 14-15 to complete and my advice is to wait. I waited till 22 went back took out my aggresion wiping out the areas i had died at level 14 looking for the things. Here is my advice

    Telson: yeah yeah mentioned already.

    Femur: The only thing about the post related to this part was that ever where it just says femur, the femur in quest is called a "Cracked Femur" I was skeptic about it when i pushed the combine button do to the sensativity towards shattered and intact choppers. The Cracked Femur works and is what your supposed to have.

    Cabbage: At 14 I gathered shadows and ran through the whole **** zone, died once or twice due to underwater skeles I didnt see, but saw me. I never once saw a creeper until i came back at 22 went to the thrid(forth maybe? cant remember) the one with the 3 pillars right beside the path straight out from cabilis, path ends on this island too. I looked around the 3 pillars for like 10 min right after getting 22 and there was one just sitting on the hill off to the right. He was green but just to make him pay for my trouble I blasted the **** out of the flower. No pet, every dot, rapid succesion siphon lifes. No problem, except he didnt drop the **** cabbage. I was ******* went and looked around the entire zone shadowed for about an hour, then in the middle of nowhere i saw one all by him self no mobs for miles, same thing beat the crap out of his aspen, again, no cabbage. As if this quest isnt hard enough, that the have to make the rare spawns loot uncommon. Called it a night after that, next day went back to the three pillars, got jumped by a skele and then a gaz shaman after i lost invis, no pet, was an interesting fight, came out of it with about a bub of life and mana. Gathered some shadows and sat down to rest, right as i did i saw a flower in the distance, got back up targeted, creeper. Followed invis, very carefully, he stoped and i pulled a trick mentioned in someone elses post here. Turned my sound way up and sat right by him so i could here if he moved. got halfway healthy and he took off, followed him around some skeles, next stop was a a clearing by the iksar head on the ground, and this time i just use one dot a few siphons and slowly beat him to death with my staff, prolly made no diference how i killed him but i got a caggabe off the last one, put it in my last inventory slot so i wouldn't eat it and was very happy :)

    Choppers: The valley that Sathis refers two is where i found my skulkings, once again came here at 14-15 never saw one, came at 22 just as i got there i started to talk to a friend and saw a monkey, thinking it was a runt i targeted and it was a brutling. Got up started to give chase and another one walked right infront of me. Uh-oh which one, going opposite directions. One was going down into the valley one was going laterally accross. Logic would dictate that i follow the one that would go out of sight first, well it was late logic didnt take. I killed the one going down into the valley and got shattered choppers, and i couldnt find the earlier seen one. So i went back to the place and after 5 min again saw two, this time i killed the one going out of the valley, got intact choppers, came back killed the one going into the valley, got shattered. Wonder if the intact holder always walks a different route then the other, shrug might be usefull. The spawn point has got to be close to that valley though cause one minute all i saw was a bonecaster, then instantly there where two brutlings came out of noiwhere, im tempted to think that is the spawn point and if you see the come and go they might just be rewalking their path, shrug.


    Good Luck everyone, I got 22 right after patch day, so it might have made it easier to find the spawns.
    Wow this is a pain in the butt quest
    # Feb 24 2001 at 10:05 PM Rating: Default
    Ok as everyone has said the femur and telson are extremely easy to get as they are on nearly every greater scalebone and heartstring scorp on in FoB...I found the man eating creeper out on the third isle along the road near the back quarter of the isle standing right between 2 pillars and luckily it droped the cabbage. It took me bout an hour to find this guy after crisscrossing all over the swamp...now the real pain was the skulking brutling...i spent probably close to 20 hours in warslik woods checking every spot posted here and in the listing on the creature and at lvl 20 everything in the area just about was green to me and me and my pet musta slaughtered hundreds of bonecasters, hunters, witchdoctors, battlemasters ect for hours on end and finally after selling(i had almost 1000 copper and 750 silver that i needed to bank to show how much crud i cleared)i stoped at the giant fort to kill a sapling and got jumped by a bonecaster and then what should wander over the hill behind the fort but a brutling an he droped the choppers intact and that was the only one i have seen in the whole zone period...just wanted to mention it as yet another place to look for em but that was the only one i've seen there or anywhere...found 9 runtlings and one brute in all the areas i checked...also if you try to clear the spawn stuck on the wall by the bandit lake round neg 1125 pos 4270 be careful as there can be tons stuck there and pulled a nice half dozen critter train the first time and got slaughtered at lvl 20 by all the greens...hope this helps someone as this quest is aweful hard for the lvl of the critter and reward but i got my dark binder skullcap...good luck all

    ok, this is really starting to get to me, the first 3 quests werent all that bad, 3rd one was annoying but nothing i coulndt handle, but now this 4th quest has me so **** mad, i cannot for the life of me get my hands on the crappy cabbage or the brutling, i havent even seen any of them yet and i have spent around 30 hours RT in WW, and 10 or so in SonH, and i have read, reread triple read, have other people read and then read again all the posts on these mobs location, the bugs there are with them, again and again and....., but no, nothing AT ALL helps, i must have wandered the **** WW from loc til loc a million times, so if anyone has any help for me, i would really appreciate it, because im this close to leaving this quest crap all together but i really dont wanna have wasted all this time on nothing, the cap i have now, in no way make up for the time wasted so far, i could have been like level 35 or so if it wasnt for the **** time i have wasted on these 2 mobs

    Well, I got this quest done at lvl 20 today. The telson and femur were dead easy, of course, and I've been sitting on those for 8 or more levels. The choppers and cabbage were more inline with the damned escaped froglok slaves from the previous quest. Huge *** thanks to Sathiss for the loc of the skulking brutling. It's a ****** of an area to solo, as whenever you med, you get jumped, but it worked. Got the choppers from the first bruteling I found. Sathiss's loc for the creeper seems to be more of a pathing bug that creatures will get hung up in. Everytime I checked there, I only found some kind of mosquito that was yellow to me. Tried to take it out, and nearly succeeded, but many of my spells were wasted as it was in the water and I was on land. Grrrr.... At least I got my exp back by beating on the nearby forglok gaz knight on a 20 minute timer. So then I check the area by the rogue iksar campfire with no luck. By this time I had to log for the night and came back to check today. I searched the area near -2700, 2700 to no avail and decided to return to the campfire. I took out a couple of blues on the way and was low on mana when suddenly I see the creeper near the camp, and it was on the move. I decided to follow it, as I didn't want to lose it while medding. It walked a pretty straight line to the base of a pillar near 1300, 700 or so (didn't think to get the /loc). I kept my sound up as I meditated so I could hear it walk away if it chose to. Good thing too, because as I neared full mana, the creeper turned around and started heading back the way it came. That may be it's standard patrol route... Give it a try. After killing it and getting the cabbage, I headed straight back to cabilis and found another creeper standing still at 1800, 1800. It may be it's static location, or merely a spot on its patrol, but at least it's another place to look. Good luck to everyone trying this. Now I'm on to the next one (already have the pariah mask and I'll just ask people for the right to loot a no drop ivy band in WW).

    Now I am not saying that the creeper doesn't spawn near the pillar to the left of town, but I hunted there at least once each level from 13-20, and never found it. Then last night a friend and I were hunting there when I saw a couple of soft skin females hunting in the same area. I asked them if they would give me a tell if they saw a man eating creeper. In unison they both responded, "Those are found in the South of the zone". I thought, really? That goes against everyting I have been reading here. Just about that same time, another friend of mine had zoned in and was going to join us. Well his sense heading skill seems to have been neglected, and he got lost. He said he was at -2700, 2700 roughly. I told my friend to stay at the pillar and keep an eye out while I went to fetch our friend. For those of you without a map in front of you, that is at the tail end of the path that leads out from the city to the south, past the first two islands. I went down to fetch my friend because he had run into trouble a couple of times when some frogloks had jumped him and had to feign. After gathering him up, I was going to head back to the pillar. When lo and behold a Man Eating Creeper crossed the path right next to the pillars, approx -2250, 2600. Killed it and it had the cabbage. I do believe that the creeper can spawn near the pillar, just very rarely. Judging from the response of the soft skins to my question, they made it sound that the creeper was a fairly common mob in the part of the zone I found it at. For the Brutling, I went to the spot that Seronami had given in his post (-2233.50, 2729.43), near the valley that Sathiss had referred to. I roamed around for a bit and was just about to give up when he popped up right in front of me. Killed him and he had the choppers. Interesting note though, he seemed to have two green conning goblin friends. As soon as I hit the Brutling, a caster goblin and a melee jumped me and my pet. My 16th level pet took on the melee goblin and brutling, while I took out the caster. That pet kicked some serious tail, and even though the caster was green, since our Cold Resist is pretty low, his Cold DD spells packed a wallop. I finished with 1/2 mana and health and the pet was at 1/2 health also. Kind of an exciting battle. They may have been just wandering by, but they got on me really quick. So keep an eye out for goblins in the area when you find him. Good luck, this quest was much more of a hassle than the previous one in my opinion.

    I just killed a creeper ("man eating creeper") a minute ago. He spawned very close to -2415, 2985, which is just up the hill to the west of where Kreliss mentioned above.

    I spent some time at the location near the large pillar in the north of the zone also with no luck.

    I got a location for the skulking brutling a friend grabbed the 8 goblins which was protecting a skulking brutling on the hill by the bandit lake and chased them to me, I killed the bruteling finding out he dropped the shattered choppers. Finding the goblins coming back, I gated. My friend died while trying to escape there spells. Going to retrieve his body, we ran into another skulking brutling at loc
    -2233.50,2729.43. That is the exact location I found him. He is the one that drops the intacted choppers. Skulking Brutlings are the ONLY choppers you can use. No Pygme Brutes or anything else like that. Just Skulking Brutling. Rumors are that they fall under the world so petition a GM to check up on this. If you still have a hard time finding them, see if you can get a Ranger or Druid to track them down for you.

    Also, the Man-Eating Creeper was easy to find for me as I got him within 5 min of entering the swamp. Go straight and follow the trail to the left side. Go half way down the trail and head off to the right. Go straight til in the middle of the clearing and just wait. He will come by all the time. He walks from the island across the water but will come to this island and walk right by you. I'll get the loc later.

    Also, make sure the heartsting telson has a poison charge on it otherwise it won't work.

    And the scalbone femur drops off any Greater Scalebone. You can use it as a peircing weapon but it's for the quest. : )

    Good luck and hope the info helps out.

    If you go to the end of the road to the left of town until you get to the one big pillar, that is where I found the man eating creeper. He conned barely blue to my level 21 necro. This is the only spot I have found him so far. I had the loc written down but it is at home so I will try and post it later. I tried the ruins to the right of town and after waiting around for 4 hours I decided it couldn't be right. I found my brutling at the bandit lake on the hill just above it like almost everyone else I have talked to.

    I was in WW last night with my Druid friend. She tracked 3 Brutlings and when we got to where they were we couldn't see them. I tried the suggestion in a previous post and cast a AoE spell at the spot where the mob should be. I was immediately attacked and my pet started attacking the brutling, but it remained invisible. So I was unable to cast any spells on it. I used all my mana casting more AoE in a vain attemp to kill it but ended up having to run to the OT zone. I summitted a bug report. BtW the brutlings in the cave entrance to Dalnir do not drop the Choppers as I'm told.
    Does Creeper exist?

    I spent the last 12 hours checking all the known locations and never found it once at any of them.. I found the Man eating creeper plant only once (8 hours into play) and it was roaming in the water on the far north west area of the zone. Killed it and it did not have the cabbage. 4 hours later not able to find another I camped out. I had people with me who could track and they couldn't find it either.

    It does exist. I had no problem finding it while camping around the named iksar. It comes during the day time so just wonder not to far from him back and forth. I'm sorry but I dont have the loc. Hope this helped you any.
    Loc would be helpful

    Someone responded on EQ msg boards with the following tips..

    Actually these 2 mobs are quite easy to get. You just need to know where they spawn.
    There are a lot of Kunark Quest mobs that operate this (Shaman have the 2 rouge shaman (on in WW ruins, one behind kurns, and the Undead Crusader in Kurns).

    The trick is that very few people hunt in the Swamp or woods (except giant fort) and the spawn areas are not well mapped out, the placeholders are not killed and you have to wait forever.

    The creeper spawn is on the bank 9not an island) in swamp right of town. it spawns at the pillars (the only ones that are on the shore (not islands) in that direction. Everything there is around 4-5 levels higher, and you can't solo the are until the creeper is green. The placeholder is a green common mob that spawns at the pillars and heads towards the FV one and back.

    The Bruteling Spawns near bandit lake , waks kina towards town through the woods and back. There is a lot of bad pathing at the lake and the mobs that placehold for him (or him himself) often get stuck on the rock wall there. Again, the bruteling is lower than the goblins and other baddies in the area, also clearing wall-stuck spawns can be rough solo, as you can pick up a lot at the same time.

    Basically, these aren't broken, just the zones were not popular enough for the spawn info to become readily available. K have leveled an Iksar Necro on several servers, never spent more than 2 hours on either of these, since.

    I hunted the Skulking Brutling for 3 days (about 4 hours at a time) and had a very hard time of it, but I have learned some things. Sathiss's posts on the locs neg 1750 pos 2156 and neg 1950 pos 2600 are quite good. But I think a little clarification is in order. Those to locs are the far sides of a narrow valley that runs west/east. The valley is just past the river on the left side of the zone as you leave cabilis. The Brutlings do occasionaly run through there but it is just a route that all the other runtlings take too. I hunted for 3 days and only saw one in the valley, killed it, it dropped the broken choppers. ARG! so i got myself a ranger to help me track it (no self respecting iksar necro should be running around in the darn woods by himself anyway). This is what we found out: The Brutlings do indeed get stuck underground, if you've been looking for hours and haven't seen one, it's because it's stuck. The mob actually isn't so rare, they just have a nasty habit of getting stuck. Well fear not! If you are looking for this mob, go to location neg 425 neg 1120. It's a little hill near the path where the brutlings ALWAYS get stuck, if you can target a AE at the hill you can get it to agro on you, then you kill it, then it will repop, go back to the valley and wait for it! (unfortunately you can't loot the corpse that's underground). In the end I had to track the darn thing to that spot 3 times (logged on with my druid) unfortunately I could never find the darn things spawning point. So eventually I waited untill patchtime, LO and BEHOLD, they were everywhere 3 of the suckers, killed the first one with my druid, then logged on quick with my necro to loot, badda-bing! I realize that everyone doesn't have a lvl 29 character to do this with. But this quest really is hard for a lvl 15 necro, get help! Anyone who can track is a must.

    Oops! I finally was able to beat the man eating creeper to get the creeper cabbage. I already had the rest of the components and hit the combine button. Didn't work:( The only questionable item is the cracked femur. Does anyone know if that could be the problem?

    As i am aware the only thing that drops the cracked femur are Greater Scalebones, any one will do, but I got mine from inside Kurns. If anything else drops a cracked femur that may cause a problem. Also, I cannot confirm this, but everyone tells me that the "Heartsting Telson" MUST have a poison charge in it, as some drop without charges. Could this be the problem?

    The Heartsting Telson I had did have the charge. I had the intact choppers, the creeper cabbage, and the cracked femur from a greater scalebone. I hit combine and it didnt work. I'll just try again.

    I had the same problem but the intact choppers I used were from a Pygmy Brutling and not from the Skulking Brutling. So I think that was my mistake
