2019 Video Guide for P99 and Live

The spawn mechanics of the Sarnak courier are different on Live and P99. I have a video demonstrating both on Youtube Ion Blaze Channel. On P99, you only need to camp 2 static 30sec spawn points after getting the correct PHs killed. On Live, it seems to spawn anywhere out in the field and a tracker is definitely advised.

Got the ring after 203 courier kills. Extraordinarily rare; from other zam comments appears to take about 150-200 kills per ring. The PH list on the sarnak courier page is accurate. God speed.
Glowing Courier doesnt always drop the ring

After killing 230 couriers over 2 week period I finally got the ring. I killed 4 glowing couriers before I got the 5th to drop the ring. The other 4 had defiant gear on them. I don't know if the defiant gear affects the drop rate or not. I will never hunt for this item again.

There are 5 spawn points for the courier and I was able to keep all 5 spawn cycles cleared. This is a very long camp and if I had to do it all over again I would have 18-22 level alt accounts with a merc tank covering each spawn point while clearing all wandering mobs with a tracking toon. I got all 5 couriers to spawn by swarming all the wandering mobs from lake to windmill to undead ruins to lake (think of it as 1 big square) and by keeping them cleared was able to get the 5 couriers to spawn consistently.

Problems were some mobs; mostly the cats and lower level skels, would get stuck in the lake or graphically get stuck in the mountain and interrupt spawn cycles.

I wish everyone that hunts for this item the best of luck

Followed Limecherry's guide and finally got the ring to fall this morning. Approximately 60 couriers.
Breaks all charm?

Wow, I've been playing this game "forever" and I never realize that ANY invis spell breaks charm? Is that right? Clicking this would break charm on a non-animal charmed by an enchanter, bard or necro? Can anyone confirm from experience?

Yes, it worked for my bard on Fippy.

This can be a brutal camp: kill, track, kill, track, kill, track.... Not like the camps where you have a 17 minute wait to get some reading in! ;-)

After 5 days, up to 4 hours on the weekend days, the wonderful, brilliantly glowing Sarnak Courier finally appeared. I hope I never have to go back!!!

Note: not all of the posted cycles include the Sabretooth Tigress. She is perhaps the rarest member of the cycle, but she is definitely a part of it. Good luck!

I just got the ring to drop from the Sarnak Courier after about 6 hours of camping. Killing the mobs in the cycle is definitely the way to do it, although I was flabbergasted when the courier did, in fact, drop the ring because he did NOT glow as I expected.

First ring was about 150 couriers. Just got a second one after about 25-30 :)

Here's the strategy. I'm a level 75 enchanter, but it should be pretty trivial for most anyone.

1) Load pet.

2) Go to the field just north of windmill in loio.

3) Kill everything that moves in between windmill and goblin ruins.

Mobs tend to have about 400 hp. I soe'd pet with druid, and just used level 2 tash to aggro whole loads of them, ran around, and pet took care of the rest. Be warned that the courier will fight any goblins he comes across, and he's a wussy. So if you see a gob and sarnak fighting, just quick nuke the gobby and once he's dead the sarnak's all yours.

Got mine in about an hour. Very nice to have.

I pretty much agree here.

the mob cycle listed below it not really a cycle, the mobs seem to pop in any order so if you're high enough to do so, general all around killing works fine.

With my druid I can track them so it's a little easier of course. And a couple of the mobs do get in fights with other mobs so your mob can be killed if you just stand around so it's best to just keep running around killing and pay attention to two of the sarnaks killing each other. Usually it's one of the conscripts.

The courier has popped for me twice now and each time he's had the hand. He was by the buildings in the ruins once and the other time near the hills to the east of the ruins.
He DOES glow!
# Aug 16 2006 at 12:39 AM Rating: Decent
I wasn't entirely sure as to whether or not the courier would glow if the Gazughi Ring was on him, but I can confirm it - he does indeed. I created my Allakhazam account to post this information! The ring is actually a very powerful light source. It is VERY noticeable - you will know if he's your man or not once you see him (at least at night time).

It took roughly 35 couriers and eight or nine hours to get my ring. This was many hours of killing, killing, tracking, and more killing.

Also, don't get too excited if you kill him and he drops a ring. It could be the Spirit Caller which is a very bad ring but is quite rare as well (I got two of these in my time camping him). If he's not glowing, it is not the Gazughi Ring. Best of luck - keep at it and you shall be rewarded.

I got another one last night. Also kill all gobs that roam and all roamers that roam through gob buildings. I found if you kill the gobs in the building near the roamers you can save a few Snarks from getting killed by the static gobs. Killed 5 before the ring dropped

Was just wondering when the last time anybody got one of these? I've killed approximately 70 couriers with no ring drop and am wondering if it still drops.

Why does this sell for so much?
RE: I don't get it
# May 05 2005 at 1:06 AM Rating: Decent
this costs so much because there are very few instant click invis items(that break charm) in the game. the other reason why it costs so much is the fact that you can spend months trying to farm it and if you don't know the right combination you will never spawn the courier...and that's to say that even if you do, the ring is a very very rare drop from him...oh ya and the mobs in the area will ks you when he pops if you can't find him fast enough. I've gotten 3 in my eq carreer so far. if you're on the tribunal send me a gamemail or /tell and I might give ya a few hints
Kill em all, let Cazic-Thule sort them out!!

Because any invis spell breaks all charm spells. In other words, for enchanters and druids and necros, this is a quick way to break charm on a charmed pet, without having to mem invis.

And yes, even for non-animals, invis to animals breaks charm.

I can verify this does still drop and believe me in following the spawn cycle with my ranger this drop is rare. I Camped this clown 8 hours for my wifes Cleric. Killed too many to count and looted every thing from this guys loot table from the belt to the cape, the skull looking ring and finally, FINALLY one Clickie Ring, so it is still working. I think this guy is worse than camping Grachnist for the stupid clickie earring!!

Ring dropped for me today September 9th, 2004 after three days camped and many courier kills. I knew he had it before I killed him (though I didnt believe it till I looted it) because he was giving off light, kinda like a willowisp in the distance.
Still drops...

This just dropped for me this morning. About 12 hours total, with about 30 couriers killed. You don't have to have track to do this, just have the visibility slidebar set to 100% and keep targeting the mobs from a distance (Not as fast as tracking, but the ph's are all within a close distance). The cycle does work, with the periodical tigress massacre to reset some of them. I've had up to 4 cycles going. The courier is on the cycle, his death triggers another courier or the next cycle mob. Also, the ring does give off light as I could tell right away the courier had it on em from a distance.

Hope this helps,

also the courier is NOT on a cycle... i killed him once and then he spawned near me less than a minute later without me killing anything... either he has a place holder someone else killed or spawns at random times near windmill

'Cycle' in this sense just means a group of mobs that can spawn when the previous mob in said group dies.

I just got mine yesterday (41 bard on Maelin) after 76 kills and roughly 24 real life hours camping (over a week). I had a few occaisions where killing the courier spawned another right after. The respawn time of any mob in the 'cycle' is about 3 seconds.

I killed the courier 5 times ~ no drop... my friend got drop on first kill~ someone i met said he killed it over 100 times with no drop ~ /shrugs guess it just depends on your luck ~ someone told me the sabretooth cat is the spawnholder .... if so he does NOT only spawn near windmill ....i saw the cat REALLY north in LOIO

I camped this today for about 90 minutes. I got the ring with my bard on the 3rd courier spawn. All I did was kill everything between the windmill and the goblin ruins by the river.

Finally got after many hours of spawning the Courier.(~12hrs) Limecherry is right on about the spawn cycle and PHs.. (thanX) Worth the time, unless you have ~18K on Tallon.

I got one to drop on may 7, 04 on Bertox. It took about 20 total hours of making Couriers spawn. This was so annoying to get, I wouldn't sell it for 100k. The courier wasn't glowing, but after the dx9 patch you can't trust what you see.

One strange thing was that the Courier that died before this spawn had a goblin skinner 1hs.

I personally farm this ring pick up usually 2 a night for 5 hours play. (14 Apr 04)

Ok, I dont believe this guy for a second. Can anyone confirm if this still drops? Spent 15 hours killing courier and haven't seen it yet. Some think it was taken off the loot table during GOD expansion.

I can confirm that his claims are *possible*, not a guaranteed 2 a night, but yesterday in 13 hours of camping, I got 3 rings, so it is possible. However, today, I havent seen a single one.
