Wouldn't you know, I have been waiting to see him pop for awhile now, I like to go to unrest and play alot. so I always watch out for him. last night I was running to unrest guess who was running right in front of me, I had just come back from hunting in DSP with my chanter and was 15 % mana, I just sat there and watched him run around then he depoped. o well I guess I will run into him again, next time I will get him

A few things i have seen as I have looked for bilge.

spawn from kill to pop on bilge type wandering mob here is 1.5 min. Have seen bilge and other named spawn point ... near kedge under the water... on bottom actually. and in the water just down from the gobliin camp.

i followed a 1.5 min pop after killing jetsam... spawned near kedge... went south to the shore... then traveled east to west then west to east... passing orc camp... crossing south side of island... crossing north side of island... back and forth a couple times.. to stopping finally by the column between fab four and exit... then he turned and headed the other way for about 6 steps ... stopped again then made b-line for fab four... now if i were to put a random spawn... I would make things head for death if this was a place holder... and it is what he did... all his other stops to start were nearly across zone... except for when he stopped ... and headed straight for fab four.

So, if you luck into getting a named place holder... follow the spawn yousee on track 1.5 min later... will prob be around kedge area. and keep him dead. every 1.5min.

Might work.

Got my pkt this morning. Seems the place holder likes to stand on top of the hill sometimes too. gated in to hill with rogue merchant.. immediately attacked by skelly... 1.5 min after his death... bilge popped between me and the goblin camp.

gl... hope this helps... but main info here... is the 1.5 min spawn on wandering mobs. and all may depop after a bit... have seen the rogue merchant depop for no reason as well...

This guy is on the same type of spawn as Pyjzn in the Qeynos Hills zone. Rare spawn but works like this: There is no REAL PH's for him, he works on a rarity timer every spawn in the DC water in a certain area (not the whole zone) when it repops there is like a 2% chance it will be the named. so the more ya kill the better chance. the only thing is I'm not familiar with the area he has been known to spawn but most likey if near the camp then safe to bet to kill all the other spawn around it and in the water. cause if he is like Pyjzn, then you are wasting you time if you are killing camp pops and gobbies on the other side where he will never spawn. Once again like Pyjzn you must kill all the spwan near surefall between the ruins and the small lake. killing gnolls and such is a waste of time. also by killing these mobs you reduce the respawn timer to 6 minutes from 30.

Hope that helps and good luck

As a 46 druid, I found Bilge on track, Sunday 12/22/02 about 1am under the water on the north side of the island on Lanys T'vyl. Pulled him up on shore with Stinging Swarm, Rooted, Immolated and then hid behind a rock. He shot his arrows, cast Malise and some DD spells. I stuck my head out after a minute or so and DD'd him with Calefaction which dropped him.
I was pretty excited to get the belt but he didn't have it. He had the PKT. After some copious jubilation I calmed down and I think I'll head to the bazaar.
I drop into DC every chance I get to look for Bilge and he is very, very rarely up. This is the first time I have seen him that I could kill him. I also have cleared the zone of gobs and never had him spawn. Hope this helps.

Ok I don't care what anybody says the PH are not the Aqua Goblin Shamans. On the several occasions I've tried for this Item I've kept the zone vertually Shaman free for more then 4 hours and he never spawns . So if there is a place holder its not the Shaman.
Ur all gonna hate me, but...

My 47 Bard, Syreen, on Xegony was doing a totemic quest to twink my 20 Shaman, Naomy, before she realized she could buy the stuff in the Bazaar for less than it cost to do the quest. So, I'm splashing about tracking and whacking Tidal Lords for the Cauldron shell. After about 8 of them, I get my shell, I'm about to leave and I notice some named mob, Bilge Farfathom on track... I figure it must be a gobby, so I track him under the water awhile. I found him under water, near the surface by the Aqua Gob camp. He took longer than I expected to kill, either he was healing himself, or a nearby shaman gob was healing him... hard to tell under water, but he was no match for a 47 Bard. He drops this Pearl Kedge Totem, and I'm thinking, "Wow! My 36 Druid, Botanni, will love this little dolly!" So, I leave the zone with a happy bonus.

The very next day, I'm working on my Bard epic, I drop a note off to Marfen in Sol-A, and he gives me a doll for Serra in Unrest. As I'm leaving Unrest to pass back through Dagnor's, I decide to check tracking for Bilge, or any other named gobs. No Bilge, but then I see some mob on track named "Squallslither." Sounds gobby-ish, so I start tracking it, put on the SS Gaunts, and dive in the water. Turns out its a snake, and it was right next to me when I started tracking, went in the water just moments before I did, and its in melee range. I DoT it once with Chant of Frost, slow it with Selo's Consonant Chain, and maybe got off one melee hit on it before it folds up like an old card table. It drops a Serpent Blood Potion. I had no idea what it was, but looked it up and I'm thinking, "Wow, this will really come in handy on one of these epic mobs!" Then I read all your posts, and I'm chuckling; on two consecutive days I apparently got the best two drops in the zone and I wasn't even looking for them, or even aware that there was anything worth hunting for in Dagnor's. I figure its just good karma, or maybe dumb luck. But both of these mobs I found in the water near the Unrest entrance, so for what its worth, maybe that's the place to look for them.

Okay, was there tonite, and killed all the shaman.
And tidal lords.
And mariners.
And when they popped back up on track, I killed them all all over again.
No pop.

BAck 3 years ago he was a 1 week spawn, unless im mistaken he still is.
RE: spawn
# Jun 11 2002 at 9:52 PM Rating: Default
He's not a 1 week spawn. Never was. Always a triggered spawn from the deaths of aquagoblin shamen, he's been. Killed him many times, I have. Back-to-back his spawns have sometimes been. One week that is not. Mmmyeeeessss. Huhuhuhuhuhuhuh...
RE: spawn
# Apr 18 2003 at 12:10 PM Rating: Decent
Shammies? I doubt it. Ive killed all the shammies, kept them dead, tried for a week, bilge never spawned. You must have been killing something else too. I bet if you fought only shammies Bilge wouldnt spawn. Shammies. Hah.

Good luck :/

Good luck getting one of these. I've talked to several people on Brell who have camped Bilge for MONTHS and never seen him spawn, much less drop the totem. Great item if you can endure many long, boring hours (days, weeks, months) killing greenies in DC. :/

This person is a crook. She has taken me for 50% commission on a custom sig and has refused to even reply to any inquiries to e-mail. Have no dealing with her. Believe nothing She says. she is a scam artist of the worst measure.

I popped in today (About an hour ago) On the innoruuk server to see if he was up, well he wasnt on track. Killed a gobby by the shore and Bilge popped up on track. Within 10 minutes i had the totem in my hand, but its lore now and secondary only.

On the post it sais secondary and melee. Is this true, it would be very nice to have this and TOV. Thats +28 wis hehe.
RE: ?
# Jun 09 2002 at 11:30 AM Rating: Decent
Secondary Melee means it goes in your secondary melee slot, not that it can go in primary or secondary melee.

Hope this helps :)

What Slot?
# Feb 15 2002 at 2:47 AM Rating: Excellent
Hehe item looks awesome to me, and noone could complain about the price. My question is.... uhh.... which slot does it go in? I'd have to guess it's Primary Secondary or Range.... but i can't say which. Thinking of campin it, if i can, when my necro is higher (he's 41 right now i'd probly wait till 49 for good pet and such). I'd have a Ranger from guild track from a good central place in the zone while i slaughtered everything (hehe actually my pet would be doing the slaughtering). Seems like he's not timed, possibly has placeholder based on posts above. Best idea sounds like kill every darn thing in the zone till the sucker pops. BTW, is he often being watched for by many players, or would i probly be the only one there looking for him if i went?
RE: What Slot?
# Feb 26 2002 at 4:37 AM Rating: Decent
Secondary slot item only. It's an excellent replacement for ToV if you had one. Graphic is a Dolly. Same Dolly as the Paw of Opolla. A very nice item with the + 18 Wisdom stats.

I was on my way to unrest to power-level a friend, when I happened to click on track. To my surprise Bilge was up...i ran after him, and saw the totem in his hand. I was so hyped when he dropped it. He has around or less than 1000 hit points because my breath of ro (950pt DoT) and one root spell (160dd and root) took him down before the end of the DoT.

Hi everyone. I started to camp this guy 3 days ago, binded in front of Unrest. And just checked on him as often as i could. I got home from work, got on, boom he was on my track, so happy i was. Chased him down, and he was rather extremely easy as a 47 druid. He only dropped the belt, which i needed, a great upgrade with 6ac 5wis 10hp. Hope he drops the belt.
Got it!

Wow! Spent days there just sitting four or five hours and he never popped. Decided to login this morning for a few minutes and he was there near goblin camp. Not hard to kill for level 40 druid. He had the PKT!

How rare is Bilge Farfathom? 1 in 24 hours? or what?
RE: how rare is the guy
# Nov 12 2001 at 6:47 AM Rating: Decent
On his my opinion it's luck. Once i found out about this item, I tried to get it but soon found that he is NEVER there and almost went insane waiting for him. So then I just made a point to stop in DC and check on Bilge every time i was passing through Butcherblock. I started that when I was around level 30 or so. Today I am level 52 and have pretty much given up on it. Plus i rarely go back to BB for anything. But what really gets me going is that a guildy just got it tonite. I couldnt believe it....Guess it's all just luck though.....i hope yours is better than mine.
