If he doesn't spawn right away...

I got this ring last night with a 40th Druid. Arynduil gave perfect instructions on where to find Hamed Grarr. I think I was the first to get to him right after a patch, so he was up when I got there. I killed him using the following tactic: Entwining Roots, Drones of Doom and then three Firestrikes. The other mobs in the room were healing like crazy, but didn't attack me. This tactic out-damaged their heals.

Ok, so he spawns 3 times in a row for me, but drops the Kerran Headband and some small loot each time. His spawn time is 20 minutes, almost to the second. Then his PH spawns once, which is "a kerran ahmad shaman". Hamed spawns right after that again, but still only drops the headband. After this, I don't see Hamed Grarr for 15, yes 15!, spawns. Then Hamed spawns and drops the ring. When he did break Root and hit me, it was in the mid-30s, max.

Good luck. Killing Hamed isn't that tough if you can outdamage the healing of the others. If you happen to be in-range of the other 4 mobs in the room, it's going to be tough.

Hope this helps.

I got this ring last night - I think it's a pretty darn good resist piece. Not great, but certainly good and easily attainable. Once you know where to look.

Hamed and his PH, "a kerran ahmad shaman", spawn in the underground room. To reach it, go down the stairs in the hut with Melixis, the alchemist. The funny thing about these stairs is that, due to the shape of the room, you can literally be standing in the hut and not realize there's a stairway in there. I know. Trust me.

The battle itself was kinda funny at level 40. I snare Hamed and start swinging. He tries over and over and over to Root / Waking Sleep me. Resisted 100% of his spells. Get him to half-life very quickly, then the 3 other Shamans in the area begin chain-healing him, with Light Healing. So, its pretty much a standoff. This went on for a LONG time. But, eventually they went OOM and Hamed went down shortly after.

Got the Ring of Tears, and some random junk. I was pleased I didn't get the other drop, since Hamed or his PH is about a 20 minute spawn. He showed up after 2 PHs.

Faction Hits ?

I am looking to round out my FR gear and this might make a worthy addition. Are there any faction hits from killing this NPC? I have need and desire to complete other quests on Kerra so negitive faction would not be good.

Thanks for the info.

The only faction on Kerra is, not surprisingly, KerraIsland (or is it KerraRidge? I forget the EXACT name). I think I started out Indifferent as a Wood Elf Ranger, following Tunare. So, you have a LITTLE leeway before you hit Scowling.

Take heart, though. There's an easy, self-contained quest in Kerra itself you can do. Basically, you kill the Wharf Rat in the wharehouse down by the docks, then give the LORE NODROP Sharp Tooth to the Kerran out on the dock.

This yields the Rat Tooth Choker (3ac 2agi neck item, droppable but LORE) and a bit of Kerra faction.

There's another quest, Razorfish, that yields the Kerran Fishing Pole and some Kerra faction. But this one involves killing Razorfish (this fish is RARE - that's the problem) and giving the quest item to the Kerran out on the boat.

Warning- Spoiler (just trying to help the frustrated :)

(you really need a druid that can harmonize and group port)

Port to Tox.
Head West to the water.
Swim or fly to n457, p2470 and enter Kerra Island.
Head straight out and across the bridge then turn right and enter the camp on that side.
Enter door of hut at p546, p 159.
Go to far left corner and head down the stairs.
Go to second room, far left corner. (spawn and PH at p561, p194).
This room has a 15-20 minutes spawn time.
Hamed Grarr or PH Ahmed Shaman or his PH and 2-3 others in the room all spawn at once.
First rooms monsters never come in to attack so you can ignore them.

Hamed drops:

While helping a friend, I killed Hamed 3 times, first time got the ring and 2nd time garbage and third time got the headband.
