Last Fabled event, I decided I wanted one of these for my little twinky Wizardess, figuring she'd grow into it.

I loaded up my main (ENC, was 70 at the time) and boxed my 67 DRU (he's still 67, heh); buffed up in Guild Hall, ported to North Karana, and trundled on down to South Karana for what (after reading these posts) appeared to be an easy fight.

I tracked the Fabled Ishva, got into range, fired off a Tash...and almost crapped myself when I almost immediately dropped to 50% health.

Now, I'm no gimp. I have over 1600 AC, full defensive AAs, and some pretty impressive (at least to ME, so there!) resists. From what the people posting here had to say, the Fabled Ishva should have been toast. Well, turned out that *I* was the toast...and the Ishva burned me pretty badly. I hadn't figured on fighting for my life, so I didn't even have Gate loaded, and the Druid was too puny to have the Evac AA yet.

Within 60 seconds, I was back at my Bind point in the Guild Lobby, blinking rapidly and asking myself, "What the HELL happened?!" My boxed Druid was standing right next to me; as a bot, he didn't say anything...but the look in his eyes was accusation enough. We ported back down, got a rezz from a nice Cleric who was in-zone with a Mage buddy trying for Quillmane (Fabled or regular variety), and promptly recruited the other 6+ Lvl 70s in the zone to run over and promptly lay a proper beat-down on that wretched Gnoll.

In the end, no-one else present wanted the Fabled robe (Fabled and regular version dropped at the same time), so I grabbed my Wizardess and hustled her gimpy butt to go grab it. I snagged the regular one for Tribute, since no-one wanted that one, either. The deed done, I got the hell out of there before the friggin' thing spawned again...and haven't gone back since. lol

To make a long story short: The Fabled Ishva Mal is now Level 70, and commands respect. Come prepared, or find yourself plopping down 250pp+ for a corpse summon, and begging for a rezz, to boot.

He wasn't hard for me to solo last year. At the time, my cleric was tacvi/anguish geared and level 70. When you say you were well geared, exactly what kind of gear do you mean?

I would guess that this year, with level 75 as the cap, and casual gear approaching anguish quality, people will be soloing Fabled Ishva right and left.

a friend of me , warrior 70 ( he s kinda well stuffed lol ), soloed it , by the time i came with my necro lvl 20 corpse had decaid but the fabbled ishva reppoped immediatly so my friend gave a try again and died with fabbled ishva at like 2% hp ... came back with boxed 70 drood and kicked it *** , have it now on my necro

Most well geared characters can solo this. I've done it several times on my cleric.

Warrior would actually be one of the more difficult, I would think, due to lack of heals.

Took all night to get him to spawn, saw him spawn several times on another night every 30 minutes or so. Just our luck he took all night, finally spawning just before quiting. 70 monk tanking, 63 Cleric and Shammy, 59 Ranger beating on his back. Even con to monk, Shammy got resists and finally partial slow landed. Debuffed Virtue and several other buffs, Cleric had her hands full casting long virtue spell and getting heal off right behind it,was kinda close call several times. Change order of buffs next time. Has a lot of hit points, took us a long time to beat him down. 40k sounds a little low, but not by much. I believe he went berserk or enraged for a bit when he dropped below 20 percent too. All in all, a very nice robe for my Mage and Enchanter. Mage got it for free other night when Quill hunters took him out. Saw him several times that night, Quill once, Coloth, and Grizzleknot. Our night to hunt them and only pop was robe at very end of night.

Now spawns in South Karana. If u track northwest and west of hermit house, you will see either him or his PH's up. His PH's are an Ishva Lteth Gnoll, and The Ishva Mal. Extremely Quick repop times so robes come easily now. But, however he does hit a lot harder than before and has a lot more HPs. I saw hits (doubles) for over 2100. Happy farming

did him
# Mar 26 2005 at 2:17 AM Rating: Decent
we did him with one group and not knowing what was gonna drop, i wound up running my lvl 32 chanter out there to loot it, grp was 70 warrior 70 shammy a bard a cleric and 2 droods.

whats nice is that theres so many fabled mobs there arent bottlenecks like last time waiting for hours to get a drop, roam around zones and your bound to find one up.
# Mar 22 2005 at 10:24 AM Rating: Decent
has his spawn been changed to outside the paw now that the paw is a raid zone ? and if so anyone know the loc pls ?
RE: robe
# Mar 25 2005 at 4:46 PM Rating: Decent
Yes his spawn is in SK now that they revamped paw. He was on track for about two hours last night while we tried to get the Fabled Quillmane to spawn. I kept /gu hey Fabled Ishva Mal is STILL up! But I guess I'm in too lazy of a guild cause no one wanted to come out there =P. He was red to me at 55 and pathed SW to NE back and forth to close to paw entrance on NE side of paw.
he's pretty tough

conned even to lvl 70. Summons, max hit we saw was around 2.2k. First try wiped a 70 cleric, 70 rogue, 66 mage, 6 wiz, bard, and 57 necro. Made me mad enuff to ask for help, went after him with mid 60's 2.5 group raid and dusted him. My 57 necro now proudly wears this robe, and I thank all that helped me to obtain it.
Tougher then last year?

Well, it's EQ's 6th anniversary and the Fabled are back! I saw a level 70 Monk take on the Fabled Ishva Mal and he got beat pretty bad. I was so dumb to throw a slow on the Mob which was partially successful, so he can be slowed. But the Monk was beaten down so fast that he FD and then off course I was next. :)

I got hit for 1954! I was dead in seconds (level 66 BL with 6k hitpoints). Dunno if they beefed him up but it's a tough mob.

TBH..this mob is about the same as last year.

Last year I soloed him with my 65 warrior Time / KT geared for my wizard, had no probs. And just a lil while ago I tried him out again, this time lvl 70 with Qvic / DoN armor for my mage, and he dropped even easier

I couldnt find anywhere else to put this information, but it must be known...

Yesterday i was linked a robe that had +10 mana regen, +100 to all saves, +30 int, and other various stats...

THe name was "Red Robe ___" Something... I looked for it in alla and couldnt find anything like it.. I know the link wasnt fake because it was in game...

This is very interesting and i was shocked at what the stats were...
# Sep 10 2004 at 4:03 PM Rating: Decent
It is, or at least was possible to create false links in the game by manipulating some code or another.
It's also possible the robe you saw was a fake link, but considering some of the crazy things I've seen from the GoD expansion, it might be a real item. :P

To the person who said this mob isn't soloable. He was before they changed the con. I went with a group to get this robe for my mage. At the time he conned green.

Trueshot activated. One shot, BAM! Headshot 65600 dam, dead ishva. I laughed my *** off.

We did him a few more times. I gota non trueshot headshot in 32k dam, and he did not die! He had at least 40k HP.

Well, was fun while it lasted, and my mage is very happy with the robe lol
Still spawning?
# Apr 18 2004 at 10:31 AM Rating: Decent
We had it spawn 3 times yesterday on the 17th.
(I thought it ended on the 15th?) It spawned
3 times in like 4 hours, then nothing but regular
Ishva for like 10 hours.
RE: Still spawning?
# Apr 18 2004 at 11:57 AM Rating: Decent
Yeah, I hate to say it, but I'm almost positive the fabled ended last night. The main reasoning is that the quest NPC's in the citys for the fireworks stick are now gone...was fun while it lasted.
Down Easy
# Apr 16 2004 at 4:45 PM Rating: Decent
Its really quite easy. Simply chain stun and nuke with the appropriate level people.

Worked for a few friends and myself.
Is it?......
# Apr 12 2004 at 7:04 AM Rating: Good
Camped the Ishva for 7 hours (14 PH's) on Easter Sunday, and finally just gave up. BTW we timed the average pop at 33 minutes.

Anyone else had this problem or any sightings of the fabled on Sunday/Monday?

Monday 4/12 Fabled fell.......Raar! So he is still popping..and Im wearing a shiny new robe!

Edited, Mon Apr 12 12:12:46 2004
Got mine...YAY!!
# Apr 12 2004 at 5:59 AM Rating: Decent
Ok so I fot mine last Friday:) WOW 13 hour camp!! I think it was well worth it though. This is a better robe than the Thurg. Necro robe I was wearing:) Plus the focus effects arent altogether bad either. LOL I went in there thinking to solo if I had to.....LOL that was a laugh! He is a bad mamma-jamma. Summons...can double for 1100hp..caster..and has WELL over 10k hp I saw posted somewhere:( Thank Innie that a VERY cool guild came in with a raid force on Tarrew-Marr:) Thank you Kayei and family;) You guys ROCK!!
spawn time and slowing
# Apr 08 2004 at 4:59 PM Rating: Decent
Seems to be taking "breaks" in spawning at about 12-24 hours intervals. I got this information from a guide, and was confirmed by my 22 hour camp of the damn thing.

Additionally, as a 65 enchanter tash+slow was not landing. (either by me or the other chanter who tried after died). I was able to land with a mage to help on the debuff though. Mitigates if slow lands.
Owned! (after one wipe)
# Apr 04 2004 at 8:09 PM Rating: Decent
Just got this on Brell 30 mins ago. Do not underestimate this mob in the least. He pops, then start calling in favors or other big guns. Slower absolutely needed even for the little bit it can be slowed. Pets class are a plus let them beat on him with a good strong tank. Necros as I am, definitely it is worth your time to get.
# Apr 04 2004 at 5:10 PM Rating: Decent
Ok, since this is a pure Int caster item, it is still possible to do with only int casters. I did it with 62 Necromancer, 61 necromancer, 65 enchanter, and me a 62 Mage. Since my air pet made tons of aggroe, i had it tank. when Fabled Ishva popped we sent pets in, enchanter slowed, and i chain healed my pet for the first few seconds till slow was working, then the mob barely touched my pet (their attack was raised some i believe in last patch, not sure) At about 30% i had to fully re heal my pet back to 100%, and then we finished the mob, most nukes landed easily. (again, unsure if changed in patch)So, don't be discouraged if you only see int casters at the camp, if you have 61+ mage for pet tank, and a high chanter to slow, with few extra peeps for dps, you can do this mob. Goodluck
Mob gone on Saryrn
# Apr 04 2004 at 10:12 AM Rating: Decent
No longer spawning on saryrn, spawn times are like they were before they but in fabled.

Other fableds are stillt here though.
# Apr 03 2004 at 9:36 AM Rating: Decent
soloable my butt, i dont care what anyone says. A 65 ranger wont be able to solo this mob. He would beat you down like a red headed stepchild, can anyone say Ranger down?
# Apr 03 2004 at 9:34 AM Rating: Decent
I got one of these today on the nameless server. I got in 2nd in line way earli in the morning. I had 3PH pops exactly 30 minutes apart before the first fabled poped up and wanted to die. After fabled went down I had one more PH before another fabled appeared. I (54mage), 65 beast, 65 war, 65 cleric, 52 pally took him down fairly easy but it was a long fight. Mob had resisted me at least 50% of the time but a few spells did hit for max dammage. Beast slow was resisted once. Hope this helps.

Ok, I got my robe for my enchanter BEFORE the patch ... Fabled was popping almost every time (was only 2 ph's that popped), I was 8th in line, took maybe 5 hours or so. Last night, I helped a guildmember take him down. She'd camped him for 18 hours or so, was 1st (and only by that time) for the robe when we joined her. There were a total of 10 ph's Smiley: eek between the last pop of Fabled and her Fabled pop, 27 min timer as previously mentioned ... it was unbelievable Smiley: banghead!! He wasnt too hard for a group plus 2 of 4 65's & the rest high 50's to 60's, had a cleric, a druid, pally, necro, 2 wizards, warrior, and me (chanter). So, to the rest of you trying for him, make yourself at home there and be prepared for one LONG wait Smiley: lol ... the robe really is worth in tho, imo.

Took the mob down on Vaz server on 3/30 with 4 chars. 65 DRU, 62 ENC, 63 MNK who was 2 boxing a 65 WAR. Pretty tough fight, finished him off with OOM DRU and OOM ENC.

Mob spawn rate is indeed 29 or 30 mins wich makes for a boring time, but the reward is pretty sweet.

Good luck!
