Took me about an hour to get this item on Rizlona. Dropped on second kill. Grand Master spawned in the middle of the hut both times. Two other named spawn on the dock in front of hut.

Is this item multiquestable?

I camped inside the Herbalist hut and killed about 20 placeholders and 3 Grand Herbalists. On the 3rd one it dropped the herb. Spent probably around 16 hours there. Also got 2 sarnak parrying blades. He was not carrying a sword when the herb dropped.
Rare? I think so!

If i messed up on the quest, giving Ssessth or whatever the symbol twice, he took second time and didnt give back, waiting for herb which we didnthave.. so how do i go about restarting the quest? just talk to start npc again or what? any help would be greatful :)
Question please...

Ok my friend got the Symbol of the Serpent to Ssessthrass, and he gave her the symbol back and she accidently gavehim back the symbol, and he took it without the herb.. So, now the quest is kind of messed up. can we simply restart the quest by going back to starting npc? Or what will we have to do now? I dont want to get the herb and lose it because the quest was already started... Thankyou for any input :)

No herb for me yet...

Went there tonight. Me (65 necro) and a 69 necro traveled and held the camp with no problems. Taking the high road tunnel in we cleared all the mobs until there were no more undeads, then just invised to the herb hut. Some of the dogs may see invis, so be sure to con everything on your way in. Breaking it wasnt bad, nothing a little Screaming Terror didnt solve. I was disappointed in CoB for his tanking ability. I ended up being a cleric most of the fights.

The Grand Herbalist spawned once out of four spawns. Did not drop the herb for us, so we are going back another night. He posed no threat and we were never in danger.

Just follow Drexxell's map and walkthru:
Is it rare? Or all the time?

Ran my 52 Necro into Chardok the other day (he only needed this and the Spiroc Cloak for his epic). Got all the way down to the 'hut' using a mixture of invis and FD (nearly died to a FD fail). Using DMF I parked him under the water at the base of the waterfall, no aggro here so invis fading was safe. Camped him out then jogged my 70 Beastlord out and proceeded killing my way inside (invised passed the first living mobs).

My friends 70 Rogue came out and together we succesfully held this camp, although he was needing to tank occasionally as breaking the spawn cycle is tough to pull off, once broken though you can settle in for a long and borning camp.

We had 3 PH's pop before the Alchemist finally graced us with his presence. A few minutes later him and his 2 friends + a dog that happened to respawn during our fight were dead and found he had the herb the first time! Woot! Logged to Necro and looted. Now the hard part PoSky. Oh well.

Could a group of 60 ish people bring down this guy?

We took this guy down with a raid force of eight ranging from lvl 54-60. We had a mage, a druid, a cleric, a necro, a monk, a ranger, a bard, and a warrior. DPS was more important than healing as the mobs don't hit for alot but they do have a lot of HP. It would have been easier to invis and run directly to the herbalist room than to fight our way in though.
want to buy

I finished my epic last week (Feb 8, 2005) and put together a scrapbook full of details that aren't generally found in this or other walk throughs. I hope you find it entertaining and/or useful.

You are awesome. I'm using that to lead me along, rather than this site's walkthrough. The maps save so much time. I never would've found that lizard's loc in the Swamp without your walkthrough.

Not only did your walk thru inform it also entertained! Excellent work Drex and the screenshot's were great. I'm only now starting the epic chase with my 57nec and found your walkthru so very helpfull.
Thank you for your time and much effort to bring the epic hunt to life in such a colorfull manner.

1. How to get there. DMF your group (I did this with ONLY one other person 65 BL and me 56 Necro) Then fight from the Zone in of Chardok to just before the Zone Out. Turn around and while floating run along the Left Side wall. About 40 feet back you shoudl find a tunnel that is in the wall about 10 feet above the ground. Follow this down and down and down. You shoudl never have to pull more than 2 mobs all the way to the house. Just be careful at intersections.
2. You will need to get a decent map. I could not describe the route beyond saying that you will travel almost the entire distance of the zone in this tunnel and then backtrack to the middle of the zone. The Herb House is almost dead center of the zone but it is DOWN like 3 flights of stairs worth of distance.
3.Make sure you got teh Herb House. Signs to look for. Small house maybe 15 by 15 "feet" in size raised off ground a couple feet by a ramp. Behind it is a dark dank looking "river" of brown muddy water. The Herb House has a "fishing peir" on the back that is liek 3 feet wide and five feet long. Typically a mob spawns there as well.
4. Tactic. Simple. The room where the house is in only about 50 by 50 feet or less. Three entrance points. YOu will be coming in from the East I beleive. Brown water is West. Other entrance is North. There is not a safe place to camp near here. Expect to have mobs popping in the tunnels behind you and in the room around you. Single pull them. As the guide says, kill herbalist. ANd keep killing them. Expect to be here for HOURS. We took 5 hours this was my THIRD TIME. Grand Herbalist Ma'k Pain in the Tail spawned three times. He was even con to me at 56 each time. He does not hit particularly hard, these are only Kunark Mobs, but he came with a friend that was 56 as well and last time brought 4 other friends that were all hard Dark Blues to me.
5. Loot? Jade Meditation Hoop.
Slot: EAR
AC: 2

And Manisi Herb

Just be patient and at 56 realize this is a really nice XP place. As for other loot, take a shaman along. I looted so much freaking herbs is was not EVEN funny. We even looted a Rotting Herb Sandhich thing with some wild stats on it.
common drop is not correct
