You say, 'Hail, Sir Hobble'

Sir Hobble holds a cracked monocle up to his squinting eye. 'I say!! A talking bear!! Squire Fuzzmin, come and take a gander at this rare find! The wonders never cease in the land of Kunark!!'

You say, 'Hail, Squire Fuzzmin'

Squire Fuzzmin awakens from a quick shuteye. 'Yawn.. Oh!! Hello. Don't mind the rusty old tin can. Sir Hobble is on a [quest] of sorts. I tell you, I would leave if he did not pay such good wages to carry his equipment.

You say, 'What quest is Sir Hobble on?'

Squire Fuzzmin says 'Sir Hobble is searching for [three special dragons]. For all I know, they're not even dragons. He can't see or hear very well. He still thinks I am the only troll squire around.'

Sir Hobble tries to slash a drachnid webstrander, but misses!

You say, 'What three special dragons?'

Squire Fuzzmin says 'Apparently he is after three dragons which are supposedly named Azdalin, Gylton and Xyfl. He will not rest until he holds their scales. I wish you could [find the dragons].'

You say, 'I will find the dragons'

Squire Fuzzmin says 'If you bring me three scales I will be able to place them upon the next three victims of Sir Hobble. Then we can depart from this accursed isle. He would never know the difference. Do this and I will give you a warrior weapon out of the old knight's armory.'

Get the first two scales from the named wurms in the Burning Woods, Azdalin and Gylton.

For the third scale, you'll have some running around to do. Begin by giving two Carnelians to Tektite, a gargoyle guard in The Overthere:

Tektite takes one hand and pries out one of his eyes, which he casts far into the plains. He then places the carnelian into his eye socket. He turns towards you and holds open his palm.

Tektite pries out his other eye and places the second carnelian gem in its place. His eyes burn brightly with scarlet fire. He then hands you a fragment of Tektite.

(In the alternative, you can kill him to get the Tektite.)

Then take the Tektite to the Temple of Solusek Ro and find Lord Lyfyx of Burwood.

You say, 'Hail, Lord Lyfyx of Burwood'

Lord Lyfyx of Burwood bows as a courtesy. His face gleams as if tinged with red. 'Greetings, my friend. Welcome to the Temple of Ro, sanctuary to those who follow the words of the Burning Prince.'

You say, 'What Burning Prince?'

Lord Lyfyx of Burwood closes his eyes and shakes his head in sorrow. 'Far away and better forgotten.'

You say, 'Who is Doowrub fo Xyfyl Drol?'

Lord Lyfyx of Burwood says 'So you can pronounce my name backwards.. Is that your lot in life? Pronouncing names backwards? Be gone with your silliness! We need no court fool.'

You say, 'What is the Temple of Ro?'

Lord Lyfyx of Burwood closes his eyes and shakes his head in sorrow. 'Far away and better forgotten.'

You say, 'What about dragon scales?'

Lord Lyfyx of Burwood says 'Tektite and peridot shall get you what you desire.'

Hand him the Tektite and a Peridot.

Lord Lyfyx of Burwood places the gems inside an ornate metal box. He begins to tug at his skin. Your vision blurs as he performs his magic. 'This is what you seek. Now leave and bother me no further.'

Your faction standing with Temple Of Sol Ro got better.
Your faction standing with Shadowed Men got worse.
You gain experience!!

Head back to Squire Fuzzmin in Firiona Vie:

You say, 'Hail, Squire Fuzzmin'

Squire Fuzzmin awakens from a quick shuteye. 'Yawn.. Oh!! Hello. Don't mind the rusty old tin can. Sir Hobble is on a [quest] of sorts. I tell you, I would leave if he did not pay such good wages to carry his equipment.

I don't say anything cause I'm diggin in my bags for the scales, and he goes on to say this, twice in a row:

Squire Fuzzmin says 'I need the three dragon scales of Azdalin, Gylton and Xyfyl.'

Squire Fuzzmin tumbles around and stands on his hands. With his feet, he pulls a long polearm from a nearby weapons cache. 'Woohoo!! I can taste the brew in Freeport already. Here you are, my friend. A real Wurmslayer!!'

Your faction standing with Inhabitants of Firiona Vie got better.
Your faction standing with Emerald Warriors got better.
Your faction standing with Storm Guard got better.
Your faction standing with Legion of Cabilis got worse.
Your faction standing with Pirates Of Gunthak got worse.
You gain experience!!

I decided to give this quest a go also.

First, I went to OT and killed Tektite for his drop. Then I went to BW and camped Azdalin and Gylton. Azdalin spawned almost immediately after clearing some mobs southwest of the Giant fort. Gylton took a lot longer, I thought I was killing all them mobs in the area but I guess not. So, I came back the next day and killed everything I could find in the northwest area near Skyfire zone. And, sure enough he popped almost immediately then respawned a couple minutes after killing him.

Lord Lyfyx of Burwood was indiff to me so I had no trouble with the turn-in.

In Firiona Vie, neither Sir Hobble or Squire Fuzzmin were up so I ran around until they did. Sir Hobble popped first near the southeast on a hill and I followed him to keep mobs off him. From what I saw he heads west straight for the DL tunnels then back out and to the fortress in the east. At that point I ran back south to see if the Squire was up and he had spawned but was bugged and just running back and forth. I made the turn-in and received the Wurmslayer. They obviously don't need to be anywhere near each other.

I put them both on ext target and ran to bail out Sir Hobble and decided to see if charm would work on him to get him back to Squire Fuzzmin. As soon as I charmed him Squire Fuzzmin immediately popped at his loc. I let charm break and faded. I followed them for a little, but they are a 2 man wrecking crew, especially if the other named mobs that roam are up because they assist and heal each other.

I saw someone selling a Wurmslayer today in ooc and reminisced. I evidently sold or gave away the one I had before so decided to do it again.

First stop was Burning Woods. I set up camp and began tracking at the north end of giant fort. I cleared everything in a box north and west of the columns. After three cycles of Entalon, Gylton spawned twice in a row and both times he dropped a scale. I assume Gylton/Azdalin do every time but it's probably not keen to assume.

I then moved south of the fort, cleared everything in the immediate area between the two craters south of it and Azdalin spawned and also droped a scale.

I dashed to PoK to get some carnelians and a peridot from the jewlcraft vendors. Then I went to the Overthere invised up and trucked into the tunnel between the garoyles. Sneaked behind Tektite and /consider and indifferent. Swift success.

I ran back through PoK to Neriak and north to Lavastorm for the Temple of Ro. Lord Lyfyx of Burwood was aprehensive so I did the sneak and consider again, turnin was a success.

I was on to Firiona Vie where I zoned into a bad situation. Sir Hobble was about to die. But I can confirm a respawn time because of it.

Respawn is close if not exactly four hours. I watched Sir Hobble die to evil race players who killed him (likely) in defense. At his level it is feasible that a level 90 character would kill him with riposte alone. They left the zone and for the next four hours I was the only person in zone.

As a Ranger, Level 59, from the south center edge of the Froglok area in the middle of the zone I can track nearly everything except the evil side of town. Brizzana Kellgo(SW) at the mouth of the river, Tracker Azeal(S) near the southern cliffs, a forest giant arbor (NE)and Soulbinder Tardon (E). I set Tracking to Reverse Alpha and highlighted the soulbinder. Sir would be under and Squire should be above. When he spawned he was alone and I was at his side in less than a minute.

Sir Hobble spawned on a hill overlooking the river, stood there for a moment buffing himself, killed a few drachnid, made a trek through the caves and then back out towards the river. As we reached the cave, exiting, Squire Fuzzmin spawned, near the road across the river and made a straight line to join Sir Hobble on his tour of agression. At this point I hailed Sir Hobble, though I believe it was redundant because the Squire was with us. I hailed the Squire and then, with no text response to either of them, I turned in the scales while walking with the duo because they didn't stop on hail. It was at this point we parted ways, I have my Wurmslayer and Squire his scales. I would hazzard an educated guess that their spawn time is static as are the locations.

I returned shortly and followed them for a bit. Enough to see that the squire cast heals on Sir Hobble. Sir Hobble is reckless enough without heals that he could die before the Squire spawns. In the inital trip to the caves I watched him fight one spider then two more in succession and he was nearly dead. He regens to full health swiftly but a chain of fights without a rest would do it.

All in all, I invested about 6 hours travel and respawn time for a momento.

I've cruised through posts looking at the quest and spawn info and saw some questions as to wether some of the NPC spawn anymore or if the quest was still active. I hope this info is of use to someone.

First of all, Hobbes and Fuzzmin walk around Firiona Vie and can be difficult to locate. If you can track, best served by going to the middle of the zone and tracking until they walk into your tracking area.
Getting the scales. You can buy them at the bazaar but you'll need to identify them to make sure you have both. If you choose to go to Burnedout Woods to get them, the two dragons spawn randomly and it is not easy to determine what alias their placeholder is. At first, I thought is was an ape but am not so sure after finding more stationed around a ruin. Doubtful that it is a Wurm after killing them all numerous times. I recommend just killing everything that roams. And all of the sudden, they appear. Good place for a 53rd Ranger too.
Getting the third scale wasn't easy at first. I tried to run passed the first gargoyles, didn't work. I tried to root them. Forget it. I finally took wolf form (don't know if that helped), cast Superior Camoflage and when close, pressed sneak and snuck passed both gargoyles. When I approached Tektite, I initially forgot what to give him and tried to give him both scales and he attacked. The next time, staying behind him, I gave him the two Carnellians and he gave me the Tektite.
All was downhill from there.

[Sun Apr 15 21:42:53 2007] Sir Hobble slashes a drachnid webstrander for 26 points of damage.


[Sun Apr 15 21:43:13 2007] You say, 'what quest is sir hobble on?'

This is where i notice that Squire Fuzzmin, himself, misspells Xyfyl!!



[Sun Apr 15 21:45:06 2007] You say, 'i will find the dragons'

Get the first two scales from named wurms in BW, as described above. Then go to OT and give two carnelians to Tektite, the gargoyle. When hailed, he didn't say anything.



[Fri Apr 20 03:33:33 2007] You have entered The Overthere.


I gave Tektite two carnelians, in separate slots, of course. I was apprehensive to him.


[Fri Apr 20 03:34:55 2007] Tektite takes one hand and pries out one of his eyes, which he casts far into the plains. He then places the carnelian into his eye socket. He turns towards you and holds open his palm.


[Fri Apr 20 03:34:55 2007] Tektite pries out his other eye and places the second carnelian gem in its place. His eyes burn brightly with scarlet fire. He then hands you a fragment of tektite.


I then took my fragment of tektite to Temple of Sol Ro and found Lord Lyfyx of Burwood. I tried saying all the different things to him that people have reported getting responses to, just to document it.


[Fri Apr 20 03:43:45 2007] You have entered The Temple of Solusek Ro.


[Fri Apr 20 03:45:17 2007] You say, 'Hail, Lord Lyfyx of Burwood'

[Fri Apr 20 03:45:51 2007] You say, 'what Burning Prince?'


[Fri Apr 20 03:45:51 2007] Lord Lyfyx of Burwood closes his eyes and shakes his head in sorrow. 'Far away and better forgotten.'


[Fri Apr 20 03:46:06 2007] You say, 'who is doowrub fo xyfyl drol?'


[Fri Apr 20 03:46:07 2007] Lord Lyfyx of Burwood says 'So you can pronounce my name backwards.. Is that your lot in life? Pronouncing names backwards? Be gone with your silliness! We need no court fool.'

[Fri Apr 20 03:47:01 2007] Lord Lyfyx of Burwood says 'Tektite and peridot shall get you what you desire.'


So, i hand him those two items exactly.



[Fri Apr 20 03:47:01 2007] Lord Lyfyx of Burwood places the gems inside an ornate metal box. He begins to tug at his skin. Your vision blurs as he performs his magic. 'This is what you seek. Now leave and bother me no further.'


[Fri Apr 20 03:47:01 2007] Your faction standing with Temple Of Sol Ro got better.
[Fri Apr 20 03:47:01 2007] Your faction standing with Shadowed Men got worse.
[Fri Apr 20 03:47:01 2007] You gain experience!!


Having gotten the three scales, i felt like i was close to the finish line! I went to FV in just enough time to see an iksar kill Sir Hobble right at the pok book. So, i went over to Lenka Stoutheart and did that little dance, and not five mins later Sir Hobble was back at the tunnel, hailed him, got Fuzzmin to show, and voila!


[Fri Apr 20 02:23:14 2007] You say, 'Hail, Squire Fuzzmin'


[Fri Apr 20 02:23:14 2007] Squire Fuzzmin awakens from a quick shuteye. 'Yawn.. Oh!! Hello. Don't mind the rusty old tin can. Sir Hobble is on a [quest] of sorts. I tell you, I would leave if he did not pay such good wages to carry his equipment.

Squire spawns inside the outpost. SInce the takeover of the FV outpost by Lanys T'Vyls troops the Squire no longer spawns when you hail Sir Hobble.

I found Sir Hobble after putzing about the zone for a couple of hours with my 52 Ranger on Luclin Server. I thought he would con green just like Sergeant Greenblade, since both are listed in the bestiary as level 30, so i filtered out the rest to keep it simple. After 2 boring hours of whacking Drachnids and Drolvargs with no sign of him on track, who should saunter by, but Sir Hobble his-befuddled-self! Conned grey :0 !! ? !!
I snared him and led him to a safe area, rooted him, logged out, logged back in, and hailed him. He hollered for Fuzzballs(sic), but the Sqire never showed on track or in person. Each time Hobble broke snare and wandered I repeated the process, hailing repeatedly. I never once Saw the Sqire on track, and I must have worked the technique on him for nearly an hour. I even led him into the tunnel to the PoK book, since I recall something about that being his destination. he wandered off from there and I followed, killing things to keep him alive and hailing him to call for Sqire Fuzzbin. Nuthin!!This leads me to believe that your statement is dead on accurate. I can imagine that Hobbit Squire popping right between two cliff golems and getting stepped on for the kind of damage that just leaves a greasy spot on the ground and a bit of unidentifiable goo between the Golems' toes! It would be nice if SOE could see fit to repairing this otherwise interesting, fun, and (hopefully)rewarding quest (I really want that Wurmy, but the only one i've seen for sale lately was 10k, outrageous!!!)

Ok, so does he just randomly spawn in the new lightrace ruins/town area?
Any idea of what his timer or triggers are?
I have all my scales for this quest and am pulling hair out because i cannot find or spawn him, so close yet so far.

i decided to do this quest for my warrior recently, so i read up on where the scales drop but i read the information incorrectly as Entalon being the PH for Azdlian ( dont ask how i did that ) so anyways i an killing entalon and Glyton keeps spawning when i need Azdlian to finsih the quest. i am thinking he must be the rarer on the spawn table. so i put one of glytons scales on my trader and loot more just clicking everything on the body to loot it up till i get ( cant have duplicate lore ) blah blah blah....

so after like 20 Glyton kills i am getting annoyed and re read the info and finally see that Guller back is Azdlains PH..... er duh! so i got smack gullerback silly for a few spawns till Azdlain spawns, kill him and try to loot his scale but "You cant loot duplicate lore items!" WTF!?!?

i have never killed Azdlain before , never bought a scale from the bazaar so i run back to the bank and grab my holgresh beads (druid identify) and find i have 2 dragon scales ( 1 each Glyton and Azdlain ) in bank and another glyton on my trader.

is it possible that glyton can drop both scales? has this happened to anyone else? i am gonna try it again killing only glyton and see if i can get both and repost my findings.

Hobble is a random spawn... he stays up till he dies, then respawns at around 15 to 30 minutes later. We walks around various areas of FV until he dies, usually by Drachnids. Run ALL around the zone while constantly tracking. Once you find him, hail him numerous times. This spawns Fuzzmin. Fuzzmin spawns in FV (city) and runs through the tunnel, and out into the zone to find hobble. If he makes it to hobble with out dieing, he will just follow him around till he dies, assisting him in battle.

Neither Hobble or Fuzzmin will stop when hailed. You must either hand over the scales while moving, or pull him to the PoK stone, root him, zone out and back in, then hand him the scales. Easiest thing I found to do was once Hobble was found, to just run around protecting him till we were near FV (city). Then I hailed him to spawn Fuzzmin. Fuzzmin was then on track, so I went to defend him. Once Fuzzmin was near the cave, aggro him and pull him to the PoK stone. Root, zone, zone, give, enjoy

Did this quest for the second time now (got many alts to equip lol).
Started by aggressively telling that trigger phrase to Lenka several times and asked that Ogre near her about Cabby Pale Ale (Dont know if that has anything to do with the Dragon Scale Quest, but I am superstitious enough to believe it). Headed out and after some 5-10 minutes, I had Sir Hobble on track. Hailed Hobble (who is a) quick in running and b) quick in dying) and tracked Squire Fizzlemin rightafter. This time Squire started from the city (last time he came from across the shores, so that depends). I see no other way than charming (or possibly rooting and mem blurring?) him because he is really fast and does not stop when you hail him.
Apart from getting the scales (2 of which you should buy in the bazaar, the 3rd you should get with an extra char not Kos in OT), this took me less than 30 minutes this time.

After spending some time on several different days, fruitlessly, seeking Sir Hobble, I came here and read up a bit. From what I read here, it seemed possible to me that the goblin battlemaster was a PH, and that the interaction with Lenka could influence what spawned next.

So, I logged my druid back in to FV, tracked the GB, kilt him, and ran to hail Lenka and tell her I was interested in seeing something interesting. Followed all the [bracketed] text several times for insurance, then ran out to look for Sir Hoble. Shortly thereafter, he spawned. I tracked to him, hailed him once and he called out to Squire Fuzzmin.

I then tracked to Squire Fuzzmin, once he appeared on tracking, and he seemed to be coming from the direction of one of the tunnels from FV; the one that exits nearest the DL tunnel.

Then it got hairy, as he continued to run away just as I went to click the Trade button, to fight spiders. Stupid little Quest NPC. Ultimately, I did finish the quest again, and my new little SK will have his new wurmy shortly. Until I can get him a decent weapon.

I tried looking in the bazaar, the scales are called dragon scales, or does it have to have the (name) with it?

No, you have to identify them to get which scale it is. However, just try to buy them. If you already have the scale, you will get LORE item message, and you cannot buy it, so just run around and try buying the scales.

Just got my wurmy as a 31 ranger. Tried off and on over 6 days, about 8 hours total. Never did get Sir Hobble to spawn via the trigger phrase from Lenka, just happened to pop in zone and hit track at the right time. I found Sir Hobble at about 26 health fighting a drachnid and hailed him, and he mentioned Squire Fuzzmin. He died soon after and I found Fuzzmin stationary in the outpost to the west side of the bridge that leaves the outpost going north. He was along the beach near a hut. I hailed him and tried his trigger phrase but he would not respond. So I took a deep breath, gave the scales to him, and am now the proud owner of a new wurmy. Both Sir Hobble and Squire Fuzzmin conned blue to my 31 ranger, if that helps any fellow rangers track him down. Best of luck to all and if my experience is typical, be prepared to search long and hard for him, and hopefully you will luck out as I did.

Incidentally, I bought the first two scales in bazaar for 5 pp each, which when you throw in the cost of the 2 carnelians (about 1 pp each I think, maybe less) and the cost of the peridot (maybe 10-12 pp I think) to get the final scale, this sure beats paying 800 or more pp in bazaar for this.

Good luck all!

My main is a 51 druid, would I be able to solo this quest? I have read of 54 druids doing it. Someone offered to sell me the 3 scales for 1.5k, but didnt have the money at the time, a good offer?

Not really, although I do know prices vary from server to server. On the Xev server the scales usualy go for around 20p each. Plus, wurmy only goes for about 800p these days. It may vary, but I believe that this is about the same as most servers.

Was Killing Giants at the fort with a chanter, looking on the radar everynow and then to see if named were up.....saw gullerback

Of course learned the hardway he couldnt be snared at 52

So I just ran him around in circles while the chanters pet, a giant, slowly beat the life out of him........ the named wurm popped but I didnt know at the time what it was for thought it was a good wurm or something.....lol ......silly me

Last night was the 2nd time I completed the Dragon Scales quest.
The first time, I (as a level 52 Druid)had just happened to have collected the first two scales (Azdalin and Gylton), so had my Necro alt get the Tektite and the final scale, then just kept popping into Firiona Vie to see if Sir Hobble was up. Third time I looked for him, saw him on track - hailed him, he summoned Squire Fuzzmin. I then ensnared him and led him back near the shoreline away from most of the mob's. The drixies and pilgrims ignored us for the most part; occasionaly a pilgrim would buff Sir Hobble. Squire Fuzzmin arrived, coming from the direction of the city, I gave him the scales and received the Wurmslayer.
The second time, I gathered the scales the same way, but when I finally tracked down Sir Hobble and hailed him, Squire Fuzzmin did not immediately appear on my tracking list like last time - we were near enough to the city for me to track most of the guards/merchants and the Soulbinder. Since I had aggro'ed Sir Hobble by ensnaring him, he wouldn't respond to my hails anymore, so I ported up to PoK then back down. I found him where I had left him and hailed him about every other minute. Finally, after about 10 minutes, Squire Fuzzmin appeared on my tracking list, running from the city - I was extremely lucky in that Sir Hobble never moved from where I had last rooted him.

Gullerback Slain

What a blast!

42 Warrior- Archery and part time tanking
36 Necro- mana feeds to cleric
41 cleric- healing
41 Druid- healing and sow
41 Enchanter- Clarity and haste
39 Shadow Knight- running circles casting dots and terror of darkness to keep aggro.
2 pets

We pulled Gullerback to east of the giant fort at the end of the road. We tanked him till healers were 30 mana then kited him by aggro till they were 80m... rinse repeat...20 to 25 minutes later the warrior was the proud wearer of a tattered mantle.

Be careful with Gullerback, he has a lot of MR, especially to roots and snares, and he hits hard!

I had no problems getting Gylton to spawn, I just kept killing Entalon and after about 3 kills there was Gylton. Once Entalon dropped a star ruby, so I killed him a couple more times and sure enough Gylton spawned again.

But Azdalin was another story. Gullerback was red to me as a lvl 48 Ranger, so I enlisted the help of a 57 Druid.

Well, we pulled Gullerback and my new-found Druid bud thought "He is dark blue so I can melee him like a warrior." Big mistake. Soon my Druid pal was down to 20% health and even with my dual wielding slice and dice Gullerback had more than 50% health. Next thing you know we were making for the zone like to frightened elven fairy boys!

ok, we decide to try again and this time we enlisted the help of a healer nearby (wasn't a Cleric, I don't really remember what class, but heals were about 400 a pop). So again I pull Gullerback and again the Druid decides to tank (silly Druid, this one). With all the heals we were barely able to take Gullerback down. I let the Druid loot, it was a nice shoulder item I think.

So no Azdalin pop, but now a yellow con Gullerback is up. The Druid and healer decide to help me one more time. So I pull the yellow Gullerback and we repeat the last strategy (I wanted to kite him, but without any slowing no one else was up for it). The healer ran out of mana, and the Druid was slain so fast I was shocked, the healer evacs, and I am alone with Gullerback. I am at 100% health and Gullerback is at about 12%. I melee him and cast nukes as they become available and take him down to 6%. Why isn't he running away!!!? I am falling below 20% fast so now I run. I knew I couldn't snare or root so I just run my little SoW'd fanny as fast as I can, stopping occasionally to blast him with my 120 dmg fire spell. He is still chasing me at 5%, then 3%. I turn to finish him off, but he is hitting me so hard that he killed my overconfident butt, he had 1% health left. One more DD fire spell would have finished him. :-(

Moral: Gullerback fights to the death just as an undead... he may even be undead... big stupid ape!

Next time in zone, after retrieving my pathetic corpse, Gullerback was white and there was Azdalin... lucky me!

Gullerback:

Best way to deal with Gullerback is:

1) a high 40's and up bard or chanter to aggro-charm or just charm kite him. Also, a druid can charm kite him if they find a high enough animal charm, may take several. Gorgul Paclock, the giant, can clean Gullerbacks clock. Or for that matter anyone who can generate enough aggro on him to aggro kite him.

2) a low 50's group

3) a low to mid 50's bard can use three debuffing chant/dots (Fufills, the magic DoT will hardly ever stick, even if you drop a magic debuff (Oclusion of Sound) on him. Works quick with another aggro kiting (druid dotting, melee class whackin on his back etc, while he chases the bard)

4)In over 50 Gullerback kills I have seen him snared maybe 3 times, rooted once, and I don't think I have ever seen a charm land. Thats after around 75 magic resist debuff.

Bards have no problem solo, I suspect any class that doesn't depend on him to be snared to solo may be able to do him.


Az, Gylt, any wurm make great charms for snuffing giants or Gullerback (but Guller may be able to take them out.)

My wurmy quest...

First off,a guild mate had given me the 2 scales from skyfire. I aquired the 3rd scale from Lord whatshisname in Sol-Ro. Was only actually able to spawn sir hobble once, tracked him 4 different times over 3 days, first time he and fuzzmin were fighting drachnids, and was unable to turn in. second time fuzzmin was in a rock and couldn't be targeted. 3rd time I and Yohimba, my wife, tried to keep him alive, and she ended up dying, and me running to guards, they both got killed. Last time was very interesting...hailed Sir Hobble, he called fuzzmin, and took off after a spider (go figure) after helping him kill it, saw fuzzmin on track and ran for him. tracked him to a small tunnel that runs under the river to FV, just standing at the bottom of the tunnel! Like he was stuck, hailed him, turned in, got my wurmy and he was still standing there. never moved, never despawned. So am wondering if this tunnel is the way he runs to sir hobbles side, and if he is blocked does he just stop? It would make it alot easier.

Last night after many attempts i got my wurmslayer. With a group of 4 people one in west east north and south we saw hobble spawn around the middle eastern part of the zone and hailed him while i turned in scales on run to get my wurmy it took about 2.5 hoursd of just refreshing on my track but it was worth it.

Ok after much frustration and scouring these message boards I was convinced that the trigger to Sir Hobble was broken. I tried for two nights every concievable idea posted here to no avail. I then ported up to POK and asked someone, Proetus, responded insisting the quest is not broken, that Sir Hobble will spawn but is killed rather quickly. So down we went, three trackers spread out over the zone while one talked to bar maid. First string named necro poped but despawned within five minutes after repeating the line I wish to see something interesting to Lenka. Anyway 2nd time no pops. Third time within five minutes group member says she has Sir Hobble on track. I followed and sure enough there was Sir Hobble tearing ass across the zone, did the rest of the line and up popped Squire Fuzzim, the real fun began, when trying to turn in the scales which was very unsuccesful. Anyway after defending sir hobble and accidently letting Squire die by a misplaced song on my part. I rehailed while still fighting with sir hobble, respawned Squire and he stayed in dock area. In short, this quest still works as of April 7th, 2003, and the battlemaster or timer theory is a bunch of b.s. It works

Quest at March 2003
# Apr 01 2003 at 10:03 AM Rating: Excellent
41 posts
This is intended as an update to quest difficulty (and details) in the Post Luclin era (Luclin is the defining moment in power shift pre 60th level for me - PoP is about 60+ and LoY doesnt change power).

We set out to complete the quest with a group of: -

39 druid
39 warrior
40 cleric
40 shaman
42 warrior

Scale 1 - Azdalin

We entered Burning woods from Skyfire and moved around the zone till we could take up a position at approximately -1600, -400. Near the road through an area of burned trees. As mentioned elsewhere Azdalin seems to appear frequently - we picked him off twice (once for each warrior) in less than 10 minutes. He conned yellow and blue to a 42 warrior, was pure melee and slowed easily after malaisement. ((Edit: Have revisted for another Wurmslayer and am 99% certain that Azdalin is on a spawn cycle with Gullerback (named undead gorilla) in the same way that Gylton and Entalon (see below) also cycle. Gullerback is tougher than the worms and highly Magic resistant (low Fire Resist though)))

Scale 2 - Gylton

We moved back to the Skyfire zone area and set up our camp on the downslope at the end of the zone 'tunnel', looking out over a clear flat area with a ruined building ahead and a little to our right. Our experience over the next 90 mins leads us to conclude that Entalon is indeed Gylton's placeholder. Both Entalon and Gylton walk on an eliptical path that comes across the flat area infront of the downslope and near the ruin. They will appear from the trees on the left and disappear behind the ruin on the right as they wander. One of these two names appears every 5 - 6mins. They can spawn either anywhere along this path or in one of several places. On two occasions Entalon appeared right in front of us by the ruined building. We camped for about 90 mins, killing Entalon often before we got 2 instances of Gylton. Entalon conned blue to red to a 42 warrior (I assume a range of 41 - 45 for his level). On all occasions he malaised and slowed, was pure melee and died easily.

Gylton conned blue and yellow the two times we met him - I assume a similar level range to Entalon is possible.

Scale 3 - Lord Lyfyx of Burwood

The way to get the scale is documented elsewhere - in short, a human Innoruuk warrior was apprehensive in the outpost and turned in two carnelians to Tektite the gargoyle (appears by the main gate inside the outpost) and recieved a Tektite in return.

((Edit: Included to make the quest description complete :- Tektite is one of four gargoyles who guard the 'main' gate into the evil outpost in The Overthere. The main gate faces roughly south and the dragoons walk out through it on their nightly patrols.

Two Gargoyles guard the outside of the gate, two guard the inside - Tektite is one of the two on the inside.

Anyone who cons apprehensive or above can do the turn in - and then do the turn in in The Temple of Solusek Ro - the scale recieved in the temple is not no drop so that person can then hand it to an otherwise KoS quester)).

The Tektite was Lore No Drop. We journeyed to Temple of Sol Ro and found Lord Lyfyx of Burwood on the balcony overlooking the main area inside (left hand side as you enter the temple from Lavastorm). Handing him a Tektite and a peridot yeilded the third scale, which is Lore (as are the other two) but not no drop (neither are the other two).

Acquiring the scales was the least frustrating part of the quest. Theories and stories abound about making the elusive Sir Hobble appear and then keeping him and Fuzzmin alive long enough to do the turn in. After several hours and two different approaches to spawning him - I can only list my observations - there are few if any conclusions to be drawn on such scant evidence of the details of how to spawn him.

First - The Long Day. We had read that speaking the 'trigger' line to a barmaid in Firiona Vie would cause Hobble to appear anywhere in the zone and set off to die at the hands of the various creatures infesting the zone. We spent many hours trying to track him while speaking the trigger line to no avail. It was the hours trying this that caused us to come here and read other peoples experiences. We certainly could not locate Hobble while trying this method. We left after 7 hours of frustration.

Second - the Good Day.

We sat on the road that leads North from the Firiona Vie settlement main gate - around the point that the Drixies and Pilgrims will meet the Driders and fight. (BEWARE - Drixies and Pilgrims will aggro on evil characters - a human warrior of Innoruuk was KoS). Occasional Frogloks appear and roam the road and would aggro us, and they would neither be attacked nor assisted by Pilgrims and Drixies. Another suggestion we read was that A Goblin Battlemaster was in some way linked to Hobble. We pulled him each time he appeared (roughly once every 5 mins) and we did not speak the trigger line - just pulled and killed the Battlemaster. After just 25 mins or so Sir Hobble spawned just over the hill to the right (East) of the road as we faced away from FV with the water on our left.

I cant draw the conclusion that what we did was right or wrong from one instance. I just list what occurred - draw your own inference.

Of course spawning Hobble is just one part of the challenge - famously he then runs (and run he does) off into the wildlands to fight Driders and inevitably die (Hobble cons blue at 40). Keeping him alive long enough to Hail him so that he will summon Fuzzmin (he responds by shouting for Fuzzmin to come to him) and then keeping him alive until Fuzzmin arrives is difficult. Once Fuzzmin does arrive the two keep on running and fighting - making the turn in particularly difficult.

We opted for simplicity :-

While Hobble was still among the Drixies and away from the Driders we rooted him. He resisted one root from a 40 shaman, but the second stuck. We then hailed and he called for Fuzzmin. I dont believe it was necessary but we Atoned him (worked first time) and he stood, calmly rooted until Fuzzmin appeared from the direction of the Outpost about 60 seconds later. As Hobble was rooted, Fuzzmin stood and waited politely for us to do the turn ins and receive our Wurmslayers, then the root broke and they trotted off to die.

(To celebrate we ported and ran into Jagged Pine and our warriors dual weilded Wurmslayers and Gnollslayers (Both weapons are 25 / 40 when fighting gnolls). Much fun was had by all).

Excellent information Darenya! A couple things to note here. I tried sitting on the path leading North just out of the city and kept killing the Goblin Battlemaster for about 2 hours and no Sir Hobble spawn, finally had one of our group go into and speak the trigger line "I would like to see something interesting", and sure enough, Sir Hobble spawned within 5 minutes running North.
After reading your post, we came prepared with a Chanter in the group, the Ranger cast snare on Sir Hobble which slowed him and caused him to aggroe the Ranger. We lead him back to safer territory closer to town and the chanter rooted then cast memory flux to clear his hate list. The Ranger then walked and Hailed him. A short time later Fuzzmin arrived and stood calmly by Sir Hobble while the Ranger did his turn in.
We then went back to Burning Wood and got another set of scales for a Warrior in our group and did the same process again. Left the Ranger and the Chanter on the path just north of town. Had the Warrior go into town and speak the trigger, this time Sir Hobble popped right away. Ranger chased him down in Drider territory, cast snare and led him back to safer ground. Chanter then rooted and memory fluxed. By that time the Warrior showed up, hail him and waited for Fuzzmin to arrive. Warrior did his turn in and got his Wurslayer.
As a side note, we never killed the Battlemaster the on the second round so I don't believe that is necessary.
Thanks for the great info in your post, hope this one sheds a bit more light as well for all you Wurm Hunters!

I had originnally posted a question about this so as not to risk my scales due to bad faction. However i just complpleted this annoying quest today so i will give some updated info on how to complete it quickly as possible. Skip going to Fv to talk to sir hobble first off. And go ahead and get the scales. Azdalin is almost always up. Gylton is a lot harder to track i have heard that entalon is it's place holder. My group pulled him serveral times but Gylton never spawned. We got lucky a later time and he happend to be up. A word about the tektite Don't waste your time trying to kill tektite. Carnielans are like 9gold a piece and just get an evil player to with at least apprehensive faction to the outpost in the overthere to give the carnelians to the gargoyle. Boom head over to the temple of solusek ro. Don't forget the peridot to turn in with the tektite. The faction is beta neutral but if you have doubts go kill a lot of shadowed men. Now that you have your 3 scales go to fironia vie for the hard part. Any player not able to track, better have someone who can prefferably a ranger with a track skill of at least 163 (this is based on my current skill) or at least maxed for their level. Start out with Lenka Stoutheart. follow the dialogue and this will cause Sir hobble to spawn. (side note: if he dies while you are trying to get to him you can go back to lenka and respawn him over and over.) Don't waste time doing anything else head straight out of the due north till you reach the path. Follow the path to the first break the iksar statue should be to your left. stop and start tracking him. I say this spot becuase he spawns relatively close to the outpost the sooner you find him the better. Continue to refresh your track filter untill he shows up and catch him quick! He wouln't stop for me while i hailed him, so i had to spam him as he walked to get him to respond. as soon as he calls for squire fuzzman Start tracking again. The squire was green to me at 40 so i set it up so that he would show up at the top of my list. I might have gotton lucky because several times he would spawn really close to sir hobble. This is the hard part. Squire Fuzzman never stopped when i hailed him all the dialogue had to be done on the move. He follows hobble who is VERY slow! They are apparently not on Fiornia vie faction because they both conned indif to me. If you are unlucky like i was and had to turn the scales in, on the move get right behind him when you give him the first one then move up between him and Sir Hobble to keep the trade from being cancelled. Fuzzman spawned completely randomly and would despawn randomly while following sir hobble. Hailing sir hobble would respawn him at a random location but still within track range of sir hobble. It took a total of 6 online hours to finish this quest like i said bring a tracker for the turn in otherwise you will waste a lot of time trying to finish this quest hope this helps

Finding Sir Hobble and his wandering idiot

I followed the advise on these boards about hailing the barb woman and then asking her to show me something interesting. I then immediately took off, flying out of FV and heading due east (love sow potions).

I continued to head east, looking at every high elf I could find (Sir Hobble is a high elf paladin, who just so happens to dual wield. Go figure). After about my 20th pilgrim, I spotted a path and figured, what the heck. I turned north and followed the path. Low and behold, here was Sir Hobble, minding his own business. I spotted him along this path at approximately neg900 neg1500. After hailing him, his little friend showed up about 2 mins later.

Turned in the scales on the move (tricky) and got my wurmy.

Couple things I noticed. If they encounter a mob, they switch directions. They were originally headed south, then turned north, then south again, switching with every encounter. It seems that they reach a point of getting even with FV, then head towards town. I then heard over OOC that they will then turn after reaching town and head for DL (this part is rumor AFAIK).

Use this info as you will.

Actually, the components for this quest are easy to come by, and I got them when I was 35.

The named Dragon Scales drop from the named dragons Adzlan and Gylton. They Identify as being from them.

I got the scale from Adzlan by accident. When I looked up the quest and saw I only needed two others, I immediately looked in the Bazaar :)

They're not ID'd in someone's Trader inventory, so it's sort of a lottery, but I got lucky and for 50p got the Gylton scale.

I purchased two carnelians and went to the OT fort. I surveyed the scene for quite awhile, singing invis the whole time. The gargoyles are by the tunnel in the wall to the left of the south opening.

I sang Invis, ran into the tunnel, hit Sneak, stopped Invis (with my hand on Selos just in case :) ), saw that Sneak held, gave the two carnelians to the gargoyle and got the Tektite piece.

Bought a peridot and went to visit Lord Lyxfl in the Temple of Ro. Gave him the Tektite and the Peridot and received the third scale.

Now, almost 4 levels later I still have yet to return to FV to find Hobble, but that's another story :)

You don't need to identify the scales. They are LORE, so you can't buy two of the same.

Go to the Bazaar and buy the cheapest Dragon Scale you can find. Go through the rest of the vendors (starting with the cheapest) until you find a scale that you're allowed to buy. I checked the rest of the vendors, just in case all 3 scales were available for sale.

I got the first two scales this way for 70pp. The gems for the third cost around 15pp.

You can buy these scales easily enough in the bazaar. The drawbak is that the need to be identified. As well you need to look out for wurm scales being sold. They absolutely have to be dragon scales. Hopefully you can ask the person vending them which wurm they dropped off of but only buy the first 2 the drop off the wurms in burning woods. You will save a lot of money by buying the carnelians to gove to tektite then taking the tektite to lord whats his name (see quest above) in the temple of solusek ro who gives you the third scale for the tektite and a peridot

Well, since each one is lore, all you need to do is find two that you can buy. If you try to get two of the same one it will give ya a cant get duplicate lore item response. But since they have the same name, just go from cheapest one to most expensive till ya get two of em.

Where does it say that letting the Hobble die despawns Fuzzman? I mean if it does it does, but why can you hail him, and just gotget about him and start hitting track? Just curious.

My experience questing a Wurmy

I helped my wife who is a 47 Ranger quest a Wurmslayer.

We were just camping in Burning Woods kiting skellies and Sarnaks and wurms in beween the Forest Giant Fort and the Skellie Ruins. I saw Entalon on track and I pulled him and we kited and killed him. Then someone in our guild said that he was a place holder for Gylton. Not too long later we saw Gylton on track, pulled him, kiting him and killed him...

I didnt know what the Dragon Scale was for so I looked it up on Allakhazam here and found out it was for the Wurmy. I saw what else we needed to do, and not too long after we saw Az on track, pulled him, kited him and killed him. The Dragon Scale dropped on each the first time. It is probably there every time.

We then went and bought a couple of Carnelians and headed to Overthere. As a worshiper of Bristlebane, I was not KoS to the outpost so I went and turned in the carnelians to Tektike and got the piece of Tektite.

We took the Tektite and a peridot and turned them in to Lord Lyfyx in Temple of Sol Ro and got the third Dragon Scale (They are NOT no drop so I just gave it to my wife.)

Then the fun part...

We went to Firiona Vie to find Sir Hobble. We went all around the zone, both tracking, and couldn't find him. We went to the Elf town and hailed Lenka Stouthart and then ran all around the zone and couldn't find him. We seperated and couldn't find him... We tried talking to Lenka while one of us was in the Spider Fields... We tried running seperate directions after talking to her... All to no avail. Finally, We tried one last time and I ran straight east as fast as I could (and for a 51 Bard, thats pretty fast) and when I got almost to the other side of the zone, I saw him on track and found him.

My wife then starting tracking me, as I protected Sir Hobble from the Drolvargs seeking to end his life... My wife, the Ranger, hailed him once she got there and then we began defending him once again from a Drolvarg.

About that time...

...her Lupine Dagger proced turning her into a wolf...

Sir Hobble doesn't like wolves apparently because as soon as the Drolvarg was dead he starting attacking her! She clicked the wolf form off but it was too late, he was already mad. We weren't sure what to do but we knew that we didnt want to kill him after it was so hard just to find him :)

She ran and I charmed him so we could think of what to do next...

Only a few seconds passed and I saw Squire Fuzzmin on track. Squire Fuzzy appeared only a few seconds later at Sir Hobble. About that time the charm broke and Sir Hobble began fighting me again. She turned the scales into Squire Fuzzmin and got her Wurmy, then I hit speed song, she autofollowed and we took off...

.....happily ever after

A couple of notes...

1) I have never fought in Overthere, but I was not KoS to the outpost, presumably because of my deity (Bristlebane)

2) I ran directly east from the Firiona Vie bridge and found Sir Hobble on the other side of the zone after talking to Lenka Stouthart

3) When I found Sir Hobble he was close to loc -1200, -3000

I was able to do this quest from start to finish in about 4 hours. I needed help with Gullerback, and the tektite trade. I tried Gullerback solo; however, I found out real quick that he is magic resistent. A level 50 Beastlord and myself (51 druid) were able to take down Gullerback. I tried the Tektite turnin camo, but got agro real fast and a train to the zone. I found someone that was able to do the Tektite turnin and just asked if they minded heading to the temple with me. The final turnin in FV was not an easy task as you have to do the turnin between the NPC fighting while he is runing to the next mob.

Good luck with this quest.

You DO NOT have to have good faction in OT to do the 3rd part of the quest (turn in for the scales). I just completed it on the Brell server. I'm a drood, just invis, walk up behind Tektite and turn it in - no agro. Takes 1 minute. Very easy.

Az spawns in the SW corner of zone up to the giant fort, same range as gullerback. Guller may indeed be his PH not sure. Gylton spawns in NE corner towards Chardok. Both easy fights, dont summon, about lvl 45. Fire resistant like all worms, about 6khp give or take, melee somwhere around 130-140.

I now think Gullerback is indeed the placeholder; last night got the scales again, in an empty zone. I had done this quest once before, but had gotten the scales at separate times.

Upon arrival, Glyton was up. A quick root/rot finishes him. Next to spawn, almost immediately, was Gullerback. Confirmed again that snare and root won't stick on him, though DoTs will sometime and nukes were rarely resisted (but hard to get off). Switched aggro on him between two druids - one would kite him around the other, who was then free to nuke, DoT, and heal. Sit aggro worked well as a tool to switch him from one to the other.

And about two minutes after Gullerback's demise, Azdelin spawned. Perhaps just luck, but starting to show a clear pattern I think.

I have to thank the person who suggested snaring/rooting Sir Hobble for the turn-in. Helps IMMENSELY. Snare him and pull him somewhere relatively safe, after hailing him to spawn the Squire. Then root him and wait. Also helps to have someone else with tracking making sure the Squire stays out of trouble till he gets there.

Entalon is the place holder for glyton. My guild camps the giant fort regularly and azdalian is up constantly. We killed him serverl times in a row and he shows back up on track almost immediately.
We attempted to get glyton to pop by killing entalon but entalon kept popping so we finnally gave up Recently we were back and glyton was up so we pulled him and he dropped the scale so they defenently drop everytime you kill them

I realize you need Fuzzmin. Everything I have seen reguarding this quest talking to Sir Hobble gets Fuzzmin to spawn. That is why I am looking for assistance. I wish you would have thought to tell how to get Fuzzmin to spawn. I can read the quest.........I could use assistance completing the quest.

I know this is months late on the reply hehe, but I dont understand why you dont understand, you hail sir hobble and fuzzmin will spawn...of course he doesnt spawn right in front of you, im not sure where exactly, but he spawns and starts running for sir hobble. Since you are a druid you just have to keep hitting track, while keeping an eye on hobble, once fuzzmin gets to hobble they chat and alls you have to do is hail fuzzmin and give him the scales.

If hobble dies to drolvargs and such, you have to wait till he respawns(dont give the scales if hobble is dead), try running along east-west path near the city, both of them hang around there.

hope this helps:)
Getting Xyfl scale easy

Just got this scale today, was really easy. Character that has the first two scales is a 54 bard quite, KOS to the evil outpost and tektite. So I made a newbie DE cleric worshiping Inny dropped a couple of carnelians and a peridot behind a tree in the Nek forrest with my bard, logged on cleric and picked em up. Then I just ran to the oasis and took the boat to the outpost in OT. After I got there I found Tektite floating around the entrance to the outpost and gave him the 2 carnelians (made sure the were unstacked =)) and he gave me a peice of himself. The Tektite peice IS no drop. Since my cleric was only lvl 1 I just whacked the nearest guard for an instant port back to the newbie log in Nek =). Then ran north to lavastorm and then to the Temple of Sol Ro. Wandered around a bit and found Lord Lyxfl of Burwood. Handed him the peice of Tektite along with the peridot and bam theres my scale. Then I just jogged back to Nek to the same tree my bard was camped under, dropped the scale logged back on my bard and snagged it. Now I have all 3 scales, just gotta go find that squire now.
A little trick...

I just completed this quest today and by accident found a little trick to help with the Squire Fuzzmin handover.

I tracked Sir Hobble by accident, I've no idea how or where or when he spawns, pure luck.

I hailed him and he said the lines to get Squire Fuzzmin to spawn and run to him.

I'm walking around, keeping Sir Hobble alive and the Squire hasn't arrived, when I accidently snare Sir Hobble who then attacks me. Oops.

So I kite him a bit, then finally decide to lead him to the DLs zone and hopefully Sir Hobble he will still be in the tunnel when I zone back.

Then I found that keeping him alive is very easy when he is chasing you, you just steer him away from mobs and because he is after you, he leaves them alone. Trick one.

Then as I got near the river, Squire Fuzzmin arrived. Even though Sir Hobble was attacking me, Squire Fuzzmin wasn't. So I just stopped running from Sir Hobble, he stopped and attacked me, and the Squire stood nice and still so I could complete the trade. Trick two.

I lost about two health bubbles doing this, but very easy given a bit of luck finding Sir Hobble.

The Bucaneer is the PH for Wiltin Windstalker, the Buc. must be kept alive because if he is killed the cycle starts all over again. Wiltin drops the quiver for the Ivy Leggins quest, < Not > the Trueshot bow ( the only thing in OOT for the Trueshot are the Kiola nuts from the sister isle ). FYI : My 53rd lvl ranger solo kited Glyton, it took a while but twas easy, he doesn't summon or any breath weapon, just hits when you get too close. As for Azdalin, hunt near the Giant fort, I've seen him several times near there. I'm not sure if Gullerback is the PH, but we were killing him so tis very possible. Good hunting
RE: Ranger info
# Jul 03 2002 at 3:03 PM Rating: Default
I really find it sad that people will make up such stories of a 53 ranger being able to solo a wurm named Glayton in OOT when it clearly shows that the wurm spawns in the Overthere...he even made refrence to The Bucaneer and Whiltin Windstalker..whom actually do spawn in Ocean of Tears. I think he posted this to cover another secret wich I will let out of the bag here. The Bucaneer is the Placeholder to give the Ancient Cyclops the ability to spawn in OOT. The Bucaneer is on a 45 min spawn timer, and I have killed him every 45 min then run back to AC island and killed the Cyclops to get the Ancient Cyclops to spawn. If you kill the bucanner 12 times (every 45 min) and the Cyclops place holder, it should spawn the AC atleast 1 time.

I just love how people will do anything to hide their knowledge of how to make mobs spawn, especially because this guy may have a booming Journeyman Boots MQ business.

Take it for what its worth...

Happy hunting!

The rating is an overall Karma...when posts show a higher than normal rating, that means all my posts combined have been averaged together.

To speak to your point "(12 buck spawns every 45 minutes, regardless of killing him)", 9 hours is not the spawn time for the AC, 36 hours is...and yes killing the Buccaneer does make him spawn faster, however there is more. If you camp the AC you will notice there is a cycle of Cyclops, Boog Mudtoe, Pirate, and Aqua Goblin. If you go and kill all the mobs (Aqua Goblin on Sea Fury isle, Moog Mudtoe (sp), buccaneer, and of course the cyclops PH) the AC will spawn within 4 hours provided you keep them all despawned (which is where the about 4 hours comes from). And yes, there are several "out of the bag" things that guilds keep very quiet once people figure out secrets...I mean...there is a booming JBoot MQ business, and if you could make the spawn pop faster than someone who doesnt know any better, wouldnt you keep it quiet and sell it to them?

Also, you are categoricly wrong about PH's popping by 1 PH, as there are a system of checks that a spawn can include..take many quests out there that you must kill 2 mobs (or make them despawn) before you can get the mob your after.

Perhaps you have a booming Jboot MQ business your trying to protect?

i don't understand why posts like this get high ratings...its kinda a given that if you camp the AC in OOT for 9 hours straight (12 buc spawns every 45 minutes, regardless of killing him) it will spawn...of course, the spawn is not guaranteed with or without killing the bucaneer...so for the 'secret to come out of the bag' suddenly 2-3 years after EQ has been around is far-fetched...it's all about chance, nothing more...i know dozens of people that have gotten AC to spawn being there far less than 9 hours without killing anything but the cyclops that spawns in his place..a placeholder is a mob that replaces the exact spot the mob you are looking for will spawn at, not a mob halfway across the zone on a completely different island in a completely different location

No idea why we are talking about the AC spawn on the Wurmslayer thread.... Just an fyi - the AC pop IS about luck - had a friend sit there for 25 hours straight and NOT get the AC (in OOT). The guy who had given him the camp took pity on his wasted 25 hours and MQed his own piece with my friend.... So anyways it is a random pop.

And yes, he WAS at the correct camp.
