BlackBurrow is the home of the Sabertooth Clan gnolls, a group not particularly fond of outside visitors. It connects to both the Everfrost Peaks and Qeynos Hills.

Be advised that the dense (take that as you will) gnoll population combined with their habit of running deeper into the stronghold for help can make for some pretty impressive trains.

It was changed, temporarily, for gnolish gear. Then again over the anniversary period was changed again. It's something along the lines of a hot zone except it's more for drops than xp. There were other zones too, such as Unrest and Lower Guk(I think).
Reverted

I walked in here with my level 12 in January 2009 and found the zone safe for hunting. If the zone was once full of really high level stuff then it has reverted back to the levels described here.
Thanks for the memmo

Hi! My name is paydor, and I'm a recovering ever-crack addict. Ok not really. i just go through my phases. I've been playing off and on since 1999 and have gone though 3 accounts. currently I hold a 52 Barbairian BL. thanks for the heads up. Unlike alot of players that have joined since the days of POK and NEXUS and well non-druid dependancy, I still find it fun at times to take a walk around the countryside. However, I guess I will be avioding Blackburro for a little while now! It doesn't sound like a place I want to cut thoguh any more....

So this zone got revamped in July of 2008, mobs are now 70-80, but they are still listed as 5-15....

It appears the information is a little out of date....somebody want to wake up one of those admin people and get the corrections done?

The zone revamp is great for the occasional player like me. My main is Lixsa, an 80 Beastlord on Bertoxx, and he is mid-level raid geared. Some slots are nearly impossible to upgrade with raid items...there simply isn't enough raid gear to go around. In 5 hours yesterday my group managed to pick up about 17 items with double digit stats and 350 hp/mana/end. While this zone will not replace our regular raid progression, it will help to equip some of our newer members with the gear that they need to survive in the mid-level raid zones that we are attempting. Under no circumstances should you buy this gear. It is wayyy too easy to farm and in just a few hours an entire group can get a lot of upgrades. BTW a FD puller is almost mandatory considering the tight quarters and the fact that the revamped MOBs hit like trucks and you'll almost always get 1-3 adds. Bind your soul near your camp, expect to die frequently, and enjoy the upgrades. I died 6 times in 5 hours, got 2 pieces for myself, 1 for my alts, picked up 7 AAs, and my group got another 11 items for themselves and guildies.

The revamped occured at midnight lastnight. i was there when it popped. had just left Crystallos and got bored so decided to check on it...suddenly zone froze up and things repopped and tried to eat me =/. trash mobs are still here. they also added all the Darkpaw gnolls from Qeynos (Grarrax, Nixx, Kraxz, Djerr etc...yes even Fippy) as nameds. they also added "a gnoll arcanist", "a gnoll archer" as trash mobs. nameds appear to be as follows..... Fippy Darkpaw, Trannix Darkpaw, Djerr Darkpaw, Grarrax Darkpaw, Nixx Darkpaw, Kraxz Darkpaw, Socho Darkpaw, Holinix Darkpaw, Lord Elgnub, Splitpaw Commander, Refugee Splitpaw, Mannan of the Sabertooth, Master Brewer, The gnoll high shaman, The gnoll tactitian. Also An Unmasked Riftseeker still spawns from corpses like in Lower Guk and drop xp pots. trash cons light blue and dark blue to 80. Shamans, Commanders and Elite Gnoll Guards con dark blue, white and yellow to 80. Nameds con yellow or red indicating 81-85 in lvl. As for see invis there is none except the occasionaly Elite Guard or Commander/named will see invis...and by occasional i mean 1/50 mobs ;P. Also Tranixx Darkpaw is undead for some reason. dunno why but he is ;P

According to one of the devs Blackburrow revamp goes live July 26!!!! Thats saturday (err tomorrow techincally due to the time i wrote this) coming with the new Chain and Leather drops. I'm a mage the drops aren't that important to me the zone is. i grew up in this zone in 99 i'm the ultimate gnoll fanatic ;P...however SoE has the unfortunate habit to change things last minute or mess things up soooo it's slightly possible the confirmed date is wrong it may be set back later or it could even happen later today for all we know....guess we just gotta wait and see ;)

Yes it is pretty much confirmed Blackburrow will be revamped in the same or similar manner as Lower Guk. it will supposedly drop the Chain and Leather random armor (just like Lower Guk currently drops Plate and Silk) and will also have some sort of mob that spawns out of corpses and drops xp pots (like the Unmasked Riftseeker Pyrilens do in Lower Guk now). Though to be honest any details on what exactly it will hold is un known for the most part we can only assume it will be exactly as Lower Guk is now. Also the release date is unknown. Some say it will be in a week or two (possibly even next week) others say not until Lower Guk is returned to normal (August 4th). I think it's already on test but i'm not on there so don't quote me on that. Either way it is confirmed that yes Blackburrow WILL be revamped none the less. Being someone who raised a toon in 1999 in Qeynos being able to xp here again at lvl 80... is a dream come true to say the least lol

Hi Onlinies,

I hunted BB back in 2002 and I remember the plagued skeletons at hedgestone outside was good for quest items. there are some gnolls patrolling outside BB, Once inside the entrance is a good camp spot, and moving down it gets move difficult, theres the elite ledge, the commander below, and the commander inside.

Spawning questions

Hello all.
Just a few curiosity questions. First off, how often, or how do I get Trannix to spawn! I have been curious for some time now. I know this is where Trannix Darkpaw should be just never see him.
Secondly, is there a way to make Elgnub spawn or is on a time limit how often he spawns? I am not sure and am still kinda new at all this. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I have a friend who lives in BB and has made a ton o' cash while levelling at the same pace I have (I seek tougher MOBs for better XP). Here is how he does it.

There are three quests involving Black Burrow that can be done simultaneously;

The Quests
Gnoll Teeth - Turn these in to the Captain at the Arena in Qeynos for faction/XP, or turn them in to Lysbith McNaff in Halas for same.
Baby Joseph Sayer - Kill Lord Elgnub when he spawns and take the kid back to Marton Sayer in the cottage on the path to Qeynos for faction, big XP and a couple plat.
Club of Gnoll bashing - Kill the gnoll courier and pick up all four items (Area Maps, Invasion Plans, Marching Orders, Encryption Key - drops 1 item randomly per kill), then turn these in to Rilca Leafrunner for the CoGB. This thing sells to merchants for 190pp!!

The Plan
While camping the courier (spawns every 25 mins)kill/loot gnolls for teeth and any other sellables. If you can track, check frequently to see if Elgnub is up so you can kill him (he harm touches for 200+ but other then that not too tough). Loot baby and take to Marton immediately as Elgnub spawns randomly and you can only have 1 baby at a time. Kill the courier until you get the items then get your club. If the club is beneficial to you in here, don't worry. Use it and collect all 4 items again. Sell the one you have, then see Rilca to get another one. Periodically unload your goods when taking the baby in then turn in teeth in Qeynos/Halas when you have to shed some weight in coin.

The Problem
This is insanely boring! You also will not get your skills up as fast as the only guys that will give you that benefit are Elgnub and the Courier after lvl 35.

My friend has like 7kpp and some nice gear as well for enduring this drudgery and I am somewhat jealous since the XP from the quests has him keeping pace with me as far as levels and he is far, far wealthier.

LOL...that was so long ago..I am the friend he was talking about..and I did make a lot of plat (or what seemed like a lot of plat at the time)..I have a lot more now and it could be somewhat boring but as I told him then and I will tell anyone now..none of your business...you play how you want and leave everyone else alone... and even more important keep your opinions to yourself...they have as much relevance as what can be found floating in the toilet after a bad flush...

As Jocoman mentioned earlier, this is a great place to get some cash. Blood, feet, jaws, spines, and almost all the furs that drop are worth about 2 gold each, so a stack is worth about 4 plat. Nice if you are just starting and are having trouble buying all your spells.

So maybe u killed one to many guards, no biggy! If you have an AE spell, get the biggest train possible, dont forget to warn people, the pull it to the top of the zone, and BLAST EM! i killed oh say 100 of em, maybe took 200 points of damage. I made everyone in the zone go, WOW! like ten times, and told them to loot up. the more you pull the better faction you are going to get!

No, the gnolls do not give faction with Halas. Probably because barbarians have not (in lore) had many problems with the gnolls, only the humans. Anyway, there is a quest in Halas that does involve the gnolls of Blackburrow.

Lysbith McNaff in the pit of Doom (the warrior place in Halas) will give you minor rewards and FACTION for every 3 gnoll teeth you give her. Giving teeth to Lysbith Mcnaff raises your faction with Wolves of the North; Shamen of Justice; Merchants of Halas; Steelwarriors.

Blackburrow can be a tough dungeon. I got discouraged there too. The key is to just play smart. Gnolls are very social and will gang up on you, so don't pull mobs that are really close together.

Also, if you can, take your group and team up with another group down there. If you pull more than you can take, have the other group pull some pressure off. It's probably not your gear, realize. This dungeon was designed before ANY of the expansions and made for low level people with crappy gear. It can be done, just hold out for better groups, save that money, and get some gear.

To make money in this zone just have about six bookbags and a decent amount of strength. Loot just about everything that drops from the gnolls, it all stacks and is worth in the range of 2gp per. Loot these things: any gnoll hides or skins besides patch of fur or the bb gnoll pelts. Loot jaw bones, spines, severed gnoll feet, vials of blood and scoutsman documents. Also, keep all fangs for the exp and faction in Qeynos with Captain Tillian. Just kill all the easy stuff and loot everything I mentioned and get stacks and stacks of loot. I have made 30-40pp per run into BB, as a level 16-18. Also, do loot the collars from elites, but pretty much none of their other items are worth anything.

I have been hunting in BB with my 15 High elf enchanter for about a week farming gnoll teeth for faction in halas. I have also noticed after this last patch that the gnolls are dropping all kinds of disected body parts :) I have gotten at least a dozen differnt kinds, half of them are no drop. I have searched all over halas for new quests to no avail, so I have to assume they start somewhere in queynos. Anyonw know where? There are now 4 new kinds of pelts dropped too, HQ gnoll pelts, perfect gnoll pelts, and flawless gnoll pelts, as well as the patches of gnoll fur dropped before for the halas tailoring quest. anyone know about these either?

following todays patch the gnolls are now dropping no drop bones. SO far off half a dozen kills I have an Ulna, back bone and feet bones.

I guess this means a new quest has been patched, but has anyone seen the starting point.

I'm on the Legends server, so don't know if this will be a server wide quest as yet.

I'm on Bertoxxulous and the no drop bones dropped there as well. Also I saw two other items in BB that I have nevr seen, vile of Gnoll blood and some type of ore (forget the full name). the last two may just be new to me. I'm currently playing a Half-warrior out of Qeynos and will post any findings concerning the bones. My gut reaction is to try finding the start point in the temple of life.

You can raise faction by simply killing Gnolls, but you'll be there for a while. Turning in the fangs is the fastest way, but you can't get into Qeynos that far without some sort of invis and a lot of luck. Even then some of the in-town factions may not get raised, but you will be ok with the Qeynos Guards.

Save the fangs so you can eventually get inside. And Ogre Warrior I knew did it, but it took him somewhere on the order of 250+ gnolls (very rough guess) to get out of KOS status. If you're higher level, and have some AoE spells, here's my Advice:

Stay on the top level of BB, looking down into the pit, there's a bridge there with 1-2 gnolls on it. Agro one of them with a small spell and he'll train up about 10-15 other gnolls all at once. You should warn anyone in the zone to be aware that you're doing it, but it's about the fastest way.

i've been looking for the snake ledge or pit or whatever...

i know they are two different spots... but that's about it.

the place i've found has one snake. it's near the door that doesn't open...

hunting there is nice... but slow... if i could find the place with 3 snakes things would go faster...

i've looked at the map and found it confusing... from the map it looks likei should fall down the trap in the tree... but i have heard that wasn't very smart...

i'm an untwinked lvl 9 monk that perfers to solo. sometimes the snakes get the best of me... and when there is only the one snake... and it's even well... i pretty much have to move along to something else... my computer lags a lot... sometimes for up to a minute... i'll be holding my own in a fight then lag... then i'm dead... so if i could find more than one snake the chances that i would find snakes that conned blue would be greater...

thank you in advance for any assistance you may offer

Ok, first you need to cross the bridge on level one. Now comes the fun part- instead of running under the bridge and drawing the long train, you have to run along the left wall till you cross the water. You will see a pit with standing water in it. Dive in and look for a hole in the wall under the water. This will take you into a place that has a ladder leading up a huge ledge. This is the way to Snake Ledge. Once at the top, you will see 4 snakes. Two on the ledge you're standing on, one just about 2-3 steps above you and finally one a few more step above and to the left. These are your victims. I made about 40pp in a little under an hour by reaping the Snake Fangs which sell for around 4gp each. I may have been lucky with the drops, but hey, luck has everything to do with it! Do not let the Snakes run from you! There is a Gnoll Guardsman at the top who is always looking for someone to pound just because he got up and looked at himself that morning. Good XP and serious money. Also snake venom sacs, used by rogues for making poison. Handy to have and sell. If this helps let me know. I know it works and it is rarely camped at all. Now the secret is out though. Have fun and remember, "The only good snake is a dead one!"

BB is great too bad I get lost in the caves and die all the time. My corpse must be in like 5 places now LOL. Low levelers be careful. If you get lost down there and killed all the time the best thing you can do is just get a map of BB and RUN to the nearest upper level so when you die you will at least find your corpse easily. Just my 2c, happy gaming.

Hi everyone! Had the most exciting time in BB last night (oy, guys, no comments please! :-) ). I usually solo or group with one guy - oops - so when I got an invite to group with four others in Blackburrow I was a bit wary, but I thought, heck I'm bored, why not?

So here I was with a dark elf caster, a barbarian warrior, a half elf druid and a human druid, down in th edepths of what someone was calling the Green Room. Huh? Never been down there and as a dizzy blonde, well I get lost in my own house, let alone the warren of tunnels there!

So we start kicking gnoll backsides and out they come like termites. Guardsmen, elite guards and the lot!! Whew, it was like wall to wall carpeting by the time we'd finished!!

Just like to thank Benyen, View, Hela and Kyana (excuse if I got the spellings wrong!) for such a great time and all I can say is thank the gods for Gate when you're facing a pee'ed off Elite Guardsman with less than one bubble of health left.

Love you all xxx

This usually happens if your Zone time is too long. Also, if your health is really low, sometimes you'll get "ported" to the Crossroads. Happened to me EVERY time I was at 1 Bubble or less.

Snake Ledge

I love Blackburrow. One of my favorite hunting grounds. The trains can be INCREDIBLE! It is sometimes worth it to die just to see 20 or more gnolls training up the tunnel to the zone. And if you live, all the better. What a fun place. Another tip, hit the snake ledge at around lvl 8 or 10, there are large snakes there you can kill, med if needed til they pop, and kill again. One right after another. 3 or 4 snakes live on the ledge, and will not gang up on you. If they get low on health, they run, er slither, up the tunnel, but don't bother to follow, they always come back, and they don't bring company like the gnolls who escape. This spot also sees relatively few trains compared to the rest of bb. To get there, you swim underwater, and then crawl up a ladder. I miss bb, since moving to Crushbone, think maybe I will go back for a visit.

This is a great place to solo a Barbarian warrior from level 7 up to level 21. Grouping is a lot safer and a lot more fun, I stumbled through the passageway to Black Burrow from Everfrost at level 7. I got to level 9 with groups and then ended up soloing a lot through level 19. I soloed the Gnoll Guardsman cave , from level 14 to 16, to the left as you get to the river after crossing the bridge, two guardsmen and a Gnoll spawn at the front of the cave, you can heal after killing them if you set in the back of the cave and the trains don't bother you. Then from level 16 to level 19, I went to the Elite Ledge, at the bottom of the ramp going straight rather than turing to cros the bridge, two elites and a gnoll spawn there, if you sit in the extreme left end of the ledge, you can heal after killing them and nothing bothers you, the trains don't go there. It is hard to solo this zone if you are a caster, things happen fast and you have to be able to kill and keep moving. There are a lot of places that a caster can sit and med and nothing bothers you, like the small ledge to the left at the bottom of the ramp before the bridge. Sometimes a big train pops up and cleans out the zone, you are usually safe in the Guardsman cave and on the Elite ledge. The Gnoll teeth can be turned in to the Guard Captain in Qeynos for good XP, faction and moonstones, the Moonstones can be turned in for a little XP, Black Burrow Brew, and some good faction, which can be sold for a little pp. I have been saving mine since level 7 and I have almost 400, based on what I did with a different character it looks like you get a whole level of XP at level 20 for about 300 Gnoll teeth. This has been the best zone in the game for me. At level 20 after squeezing all of the XP I can from Everfrost and Black Burrow, and learing table manners, I am going out into the world and fight Orcs and Kbolbs. Dredmaster, Barbarian Warrior.
Gnoll teeth are the key
# Jan 09 2002 at 1:39 PM Rating: Decent
I have to say that if you give Capt Tillin 4 teeth at a time, you can get LOTS of exp by collecting gnoll teeth. I went from 3 bubbles into lvl 9 up to over lvl 10 by turning in 24 teeth.

CHANGES in the burrow ...

I noticed something new and rather unusual in the Burrow today when hunting on Fironia Vie Server with my Barbarian Warrior ...

There's a new spawn point for a pair of Gnolls in Qeynos Hills. Right at the Blackburrow Zone ENTRANCE, inside the cave there.

I'm sure you're all familiar with that spot. That's where we all RUN TO when we get TRAINED.

It caught me off guard at first. I thought someone had simply pulled the Gnolls from outside IN to the zone on their way in. But then, when I was resting there a little later (after getting trained), I saw them pop.

That changes Burrow strategy a tad.

Also, I saw a Gnoll wearing "claws" in there. After killing him he dropped "Worn Weighted Gloves" ... a monk/beastlord only h2h blunt weapon. And I'd heard "rumors" that there were NEW drops in the burrow. So this may be one of them.

Okay I'm fairly new in bb and i went at 8 in 10 mins (i swear) i gained a lvl. What i did is, at level 3 there are tons of blues and just went ape crazy on them and they were no more. Wait for the spawn and take em out again. This dungeon is so easy to gain exp. As for the trains, i havent seen any big ones for a long time. Ohh, yeah i almost forgot. Where is this world reknown fishing spot in there it would be great if someone could tell me! thanx and safe hunting in the burrow
