He spawns at +30, +47, -140. He'll stand there for about five minutes and then path Southwestward and eventually come to a rest at +50, +386, -130 (amongst the brew barrels). I'm not sure what he does after that. He might path back to spawn point, stay there, or path elsewhere. That's just the furthest he's gotten before I've killed him. No cask yet though :(

This would be the A Gnoll Brewer that I followed around. I never saw the Master Brewer spawn, but from what I gather he would spawn at the same place and likely follow the same path.
nothing new but recent at least

gnoll guardsman is the PH for gnoll brewer and master brewer. never seen one drop from a regular gnoll brewer myself but other freinds have. I camped it for about 5 hours last night and finally spawned master brewer, which to my knowledge always drops it. I did get it this time. The respawn seems to be between 18-20 min. I had a timer going each time and it change some here and tehre, which i thought was odd.. but the eyes dont lie.

Been camping this guy for a few hours...location is +30,40 +37.20. THis by the pool of water to the NE of the boulder next to the bridge after the Ramp. Either Brewer/Master Brewer or PH (Guardsman) pops every 20 minutes.

what exactly is this used for? i had one a long time ago... but i sold it in PoK coz i needed the money... got 9cp.... heh i needed every copper i could get.... so... yeeh what is the point of Blackburrow Cask?
RE: use of this cask
# Jan 07 2004 at 2:19 PM Rating: Decent
well, as far as the burning rapier portion of use, correct, it is outdated, and is no longer part of the epic, however, it IS still required for grandmaster poisonmaking for the PoP poisons... none the less the poster is a pally and doesnt need rogue stuff so usless to them, but is still useful though not as much as it once was

Cloak of jaggedpine, and burning rapier quests. Both outdated items, and from the other pages I have read, the rapier is no longer required for the rogue epic.

Long, long ago, i handed in 2 casks to lask juton... Now i found the third (popping through BB omw to JPF, brewer up, killed it, wooot: cask...), can i hand it in and get the reward? Or could someone else have (unaware of the fact that i handed in 2 already) kinda 'multiquested' the cloak?
Just some things I found while camping the brewers
# May 05 2003 at 6:21 AM Rating: Decent
Ok the Master Brewer level thing.. I am camping for the casks now with a level 12 Ranger (and have 2). The master popped on top of me when I got the timing wrong. He conned yellow to me and beat me up pretty bad. I just made it to zone to halas. I camped and brought my 14 cleric in. He was still there as BB was empty. I conned him at d blue, a root and 5 nukes later he was dead. So I think the Master Brewer range is not as high as quoted. He can still be tough depending on your class and level though.

One thing about the spawn points. There is only one. That is at the bottom of the bridge, down the ramp and near the bolder against the wall.

The reason ppl get confused is if the spawns are left alone then they wander to the barrels on the other side of the bridge and stay there a while, thus looking like they spawned there, then if left alone long enough they wander back the to spawn point. I think this works for the Guards, Brewers (and definately) the Master.

Just my 10 cents worth.... And where is that LAST CASK!
I'm guessing here...

that since this is a container, you must have a free inventory slot for each one, no? Sucks if you do a lot of tradeskills and have no free slots either on you or in the bank (waiting eagerly for Ykesha and expanded bank capacity).

Is this just a container for carrying or is there a combine button on it? Would be nice if you could brew stuff up in it.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

# Jan 25 2003 at 8:54 PM Rating: Excellent
There is a combine button on it, but the only thing you can brew in it is Blackburrow Stout, and it's one-use. It's really just a quest container.
# Nov 28 2002 at 7:23 PM Rating: Decent
OH, and also..

This is not, as far as i can tell, a portable brewing station.. I have tried about 20 different brewing combo's in it and none have worked.. Unless it's just the high end stuff, it is just a quest item and plain old container

I have slain that vile master brewer on many occasions.. It carries the cask as often as the regular brewer does.. Meaning not that often..

If your on Inny server and need one, see of i'm on and send me a tell about it(i own two).. I'll trade for a pack that holds better and reduces weight as well.. But not tailored bags, i can do those myself :)

Can anyone suggest a reasonable price for this? I play on Zeb, and need to sell it quick to tweak my enchantress.

Conned brewer as blue for my lvl 12 warrior, but I figured why not go for it. Didn't know anything about the cask until I went to loot and
it showed up. I had killed one other brewer before, so I wasn't expecting anything different!
Was surprised to learn it is a quest item and that some will pay for it.
I have no intention of brewing, so I'm offering
this one for sale. You can find me, most nights,
between 6:00 - 11:00 pm EST on Terris-Thule.

camping the brewer

I have spent the last several days camping the brewer off and on and have learned a couple of helpful things.

The Brewer is an occasional spawn with a Guard as the PH (cons blue to lvl 12). Spawns are about every 20 minutes. The brewer seems to spawn about one in five. When the guard spawns, kill him so the next spawn will happen at the appropriate time. The brewer doesn't always have the cask unless he is the master brewer who always has it. Both con black to lvl 12 when they have the cask. When the brewer did not have the cask, he conned blue to me.

The brewer seems to not be as likely to drop the cask for higher level PCs. My friend's lvl 28 ranger never saw the cask at all, I saw it four times.

To camp the brewer, I would sit on the rock at the bottom of the bridge and wait. Trains leave you alone here, and it is obvious to passersby that I was camping, though I did have one KS attempt...

Just a note that when the right ingredients are combined in this to make Blackburrow Swig (two gnoll pup scalps, two Ol' Tujim's Fierce Brew, and four blackburrow gnoll skins), the cask gets used up. I did not know, and did a combine last night and POOF it was gone. Ah well, now I have to hope I can get a decent price out of the rogues for the swig for their quest....

And yes, that is the ONLY thing that can be made in this cask. No other brews can be made using it.

Does it require any skill to make the Swig?
Killing brewer
# Jun 02 2001 at 2:44 PM Rating: Default
At lvl 16 the brewer conned blue to me so i think a lvl 14 or 15 should be able to kill it pretty easily.

I was able to kill the brewer at lvl 12 easy so whoever said you have to be 18 to do it is wrong.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 11 2001 at 11:24 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) that is sad that n e one would pay that much for those skins or the cask. im am a rogue currently workin on the burning rapier quest, and i got the skins in 10min, havent had a chance to camp the brewer yet, but i would never pay that much, id much rather spend my time camping it

HA! I would love to see your face when you find out you've got 4 pelts or hides or something instead of skins. I've killed literaly hundreds of elite gnolls and commanders and have only looted one skin so far. My heart leaps every time I see that dark patch of fur on a corpse's loot, but it sinks even lower everytime it's not a skin, which is almost every single time.
RE: ha
# Apr 10 2003 at 7:32 AM Rating: Decent
i never made the mistake of trying pelts, personally. i still don't even have the cask, but that's beside the point =P. Anywhat, the skins are actually pretty easy to get, at least on Mith Marr, provided you're not KOS in Qeynos. Just run around and check some of the major merchants in the city; the merchants newbies would sell them to. i have all of them i need, and didn't pay nearly 10pp for all of them combined; although, what the actual price was i couldn't really say, sorry @^;;...
RE: ha
# Jul 25 2001 at 5:01 AM Rating: Default
2 things for you.

1) You are dumb.
2) You are lucky as hell. I've camped the brewer spawn for about 72 hours and have not seen a cask drop so I myself am more than willing to fork out the dough than sit there killing lvl 10 gnolls and getting nothing out of it. And those skins you got in 10 mins? It took me 3 days to get 2 skins. So for future reference, let's not be dumb and jump to conclusions before you know what you are talking about. This part of the burning rapier quest takes more time than all the rest of the quest combined generally if you ask any rogue who has done it. For those of you that save this item to sell to rogues, I sure hope some of you play on Solusek Ro because I would like to purchase it.
RE: ha
# Jun 01 2001 at 5:24 PM Rating: Default
I agree!!
I just camped the Brewer for 2 days, not 48 hours, just 2 days of playing and got a Cask. And while I was there ended up getting the 2 extra skins I needed, a guy was saying he was giving them away, but I gave him 7pp for the 2 skins. Would rather spend my time camping and playing /gems than spending the money. Especially since you have to buy a Sapphire which costs over 500pp!!
RE: ha
# May 12 2001 at 12:51 AM Rating: Good
I think you need to spend some time camping the brewer before you go making judgement on those who would rather just buy the damned thing.

I think it's sad that anyone who doesn't have a clue would post something this ignorant.
help me please!!!
# May 05 2001 at 6:19 AM Rating: Default
I was wondering what lvl does a druid have to be to kill both of the brewers and get a cask from it, and how much i could sell it for. or if i give it to some guy like the gnoll teeth?
Not portable brewing...

It's used to make Blackburrow Swig. You can't make anything in it but Blackburrow Swig. It's used for the Burning Rapier Quest for rogues, and probably some other quests as well.
How does it work

I tried making Bog Juice (1 bottle, 1 water, and 1 snakescales) and it would not let me combine. Am I doing something wrong?

The price posted is 62pp average.
I have not sold one of these barrels for less than 500pp and sold within an hour of posting as auction. the max was 2kpp @.
There is a upper Level quest that the higher lvls would gladly pay than camp. For the poor lower lvl who is going for the cloak. There is plenty of time to hunt in the area and check to see if the place holder has spawned. Also for the upper lvl quest they need 4 Gnoll"SKINS" which are rare and I sell 10pp each or 3 for 25 and again have no problem getting this.
