I'm told to kill real VS and I did that the other day and only got 2 stones and a bones drop.. from reading all the other posts it looks like he dropped the same things for them too.
Day 1: 1600 hours, VSR spawns
Day 2: 1600 hours, VSR still up
Day 3: 1600 hours, VSR still up
(note that I check every 5 hours to see if this is correct, but I'd rather not post a huge list of every time I checked.)
Day 3: 1900 hours, Venril Sathir (will the real VS please stand up?) is up and noone else in zone but my baby rogue spy.
Day 4: 0500 hours, VS is no longer there, suspect level 70 time geared plat seller who has his spawn timed
Day 5: 0800 hours, VSR is respawned
From this data I can conclude that VSR spawns 12-24 hours after VS is killed (this, I already knew and everyone agreed.) I can also conclude that VS will in fact spawn if VSR is up, he'll just despawn VSR when the real deal shows up. What I HAVEN'T been able to conclude is if there is a *set* spawn timer on VS for after VS is killed, and if killing VSR changes VS's spawn time at all.
Normally, I'd trust what someone told me about a mob's spawn rate, but this time I'm getting conflicting answers from EVERYONE, and I really need that gnarled staff for my epic >_< Beginning to think there's a conspiracy to hide his spawn rate so those who actually know it can loot the uber-l33t leggings which seem to fetch a nice price in the bazaar for a soloable mob ;)

Would you mind explaining how you're going to MQ the staffs? Arantor (in Halas) gives you a sealed box that you (the wiz) must place all 3 staffs to give to Solomon for your wiz epic.
The wizard needs the staffs, and you can't MQ them to another player. You have to have the 3 staffs in the box to give to Solomon, otherwise you get nada, and waste a lot of camping time.
Perhaps at one time this was MQ'able. It's not anymore to my knowledge.
All you have probably done is deprive a Wizard from getting the staff when you loot it. There may not be another wiz in Kedge if Phinny drops it. There will almost always be one in KC. If the wiz staffs drop, don't loot it. Find a Wiz to loot it instead.
"Would you mind explaining how you're going to MQ the staffs? Arantor (in Halas) gives you a sealed box that you (the wiz) must place all 3 staffs to give to Solomon for your wiz epic.

This quest is absolutely MQ'able. Arantir Karondor does not give you a sealed box to combine the staves in. Here is what he says when you give him the note from Kandin:
"Arantir Karondor says 'Ah yes, you again. Do you have the items? Give me the three you possess and I'll combine them with my own."
Now since Ladanea previously posted that character X looted the Phinny staff, we'll assume wizard Y has the VS and Golem staves already. X turns in Phinny staff to Arantir. After that is done, Y turns in the remaining 2 staves into Arantir, and like ALL other MQs, the last person that turns in an item gets the reward, therefore wizard Y receives the sealed pack that you then turn into Solomen.
Issue resolved. Ladanea is right and we both know what we are talking about, you are wrong and do not. Maybe you were mixing up information from another quest such as the Staff of the Wheel with this one. Maybe you believed heresy misinformation and took it for truth. Maybe you're a druid. Regardless of what you believed it doesn't matter. Don't flame another person's post unless you damn well understand the subject matter inside-out, otherwise somebody comes along and proves you wrong and you wind up looking stupid.

its 10/30 and this one is a much more common drop than the blue crystal staff of Phinny.
