Near Great Divide Zoneline

I zoned in from GD to see 3 manticores between the zoneline and the giant fort. So I stayed in that area and killed everything that moved. Kill giants, coldain, dervishes, 2-legged, 4-legged, bunny's, etc. I got about 20 an hour doing this. The total area covered extended to the southwest of the giant fort but I did not stray far from the zoneline/fort. I added an M to my map everytime I killed one, some were at spawn points, some were moving. I just wanted an overall look at where they were showing up.

Just to confirm, the map above was in the old Eastern Wastes, not the level 100 ZK Awakening. So the minimum level above should be around 40, not 100.

Do the mob-count version. You'll need to kill anywhere from 50-60 mobs. Each run you can expect to get 4 or 5 manticores. If you're level 80+ it should only take 10-15 minutes per run cycle. Other mobs you get there will fill out your goblin, goo, bears, holgresh achievements.

I should add that the manticores seem to only spawn in the Everfrost LDoNs that are like libraries. If it's a cave or the inside of a building with frozen walls, they don't seem to spawn in those. If that's the case, just kill enough to complete the mission and try again. If it is the library model, you can keep killing everything in the zone even after you've completed the mission.

In the libraries, the rooms that are setup like a little maze pretty much always have a manticore. They still spawn elsewhere, but make sure not to leave any of those rooms (look at your map) unvisited.

As a previous poster mentioned, you have to clear the entire area NW of sleeper to get mantcores to spawn, without tracking it will take twice the time to locate them. Expect to spend several hours at the very least even with tracking. 50 manticores are required. Rare mob and a time consuming pain to get this ach. done

Eastern Wastes: Set up camp NW of Sleeper's Tomb, and kill everything in that area. Can go as far north as the orc fort, but I never had to move far. There are tons of roamers in this area, and I was told to kill anything with 4 legs to spawn manticores. This works best with a tracker, but having one is not necessary. You can get your rhinos, bunnies, elephants, giants, and griffons done while doing this. Also: keep manticore manes, and the no drop griffon eggs (I'm told they're for the shawl aug)

I had problems getting an Ldon everfrost , so I got mine in Eastern Wastes. This takes a lot of patience because only 3 or 4 spawn throughout the whole zone and the respawn timer is long. I found then near the great divide and Kael zone lines. Good luck on this one

Manticores are rare! This was the lasy Slyer "Skill" category I got done!

I got it done in the Everfrost LDoN adventures. I seemed to have better luck with the ones that you entered by way of the icy cave.

Even so, the manticores only show up maybe 4 to 8 per dungeon, and only in the dungeons that are NOT frozen zones.

So, if you get a frozen zone, just get the adventure done and don't waste time clearing the entire zone lookign for manticores. Win it and try again.
