Ore spawned before borer
# Sep 18 2012 at 12:22 AM Rating: Decent
Energy receptor wasnt doing anything so I ran around factioning until it activated. 45mins later I saw a bag at the foot of a noc

+1550 +1325 (outside the outer "gate structure" leading to Bloodfields)

It was the ore. Borer never spawned, it was just sitting there the whole time I guess.

Found this @ -845.99, 1064.52, 437.41

Searched this area before blackfall dude popped, no ore.
Searched the area while mob was up, no ore.
Searched again after mob had despawned, ore was there.

On my map, it was located in the bottom left corner (which requires you to go up to the top of the zone and around) between the marked spots for Kyv Headhunter and Ukun Slavehunter.

It was somewhat at the bottom of a steep hill in front of a rock.

Hope this helps.

The scoop

Since all the usefull info on this guys seems to be somewhat scattered I'll sum everything up based on my encounter.

If you find the blackfall borer just standing around not moving anywhere that means someone has most likely aggroed him before he despawned. He pops about every hour at loc (-846, 1059). He'll then walk north toward the BF zoneline and turn east when he gets to the ramp in front of the BF zone leading down to the main part of DS. At the bottom of the ramp he'll turn south and follow the west wall for a bit before despawning. He is reported to drop the ore every time at some point along his path, however most report to have picked up the ore right at his spawn point of [/b]-846, 1059. This is where I found the ore. [b]It just looks like a normal little bag like most ground spawns. I found it probably 15 minutes after he despawned but I'm not sure how long it will last on the ground. He doesn't see invis so following him shouldn't be hard however make sure to avoid see-invis mobs along the way as he has a very large aggro radius and it seems that his normal pathing routine is broken if he is aggroed.

If you do happen to aggro him or you come across him just standing there then you'll have to kill him to get him to respawn and begin his normal pathing again. He is a very tough fight at lvl 70 making this a huge overcon at lvl 50. He is basically immune to any spell other than unresistable spells. Because of this it turns out to be a melee only fight and a VERY long one at that. He has a ton of HP, hits for max 800, and boxing a 70 war, 70 bard, 70 druid it took a little over 30 mins to kill him. With kei and a mount the druid was basically just barely keeping up with heals ending the fight at about 90% mana. He didn't drop anything and about an hour after he was dead he popped again, dropped his ore on the ground, and started walking his normal path.

Oh, and YES he summons.

2 days i have been trying to get this... what is the big deal? Every time i find him, he is in a static spot and i just sit there 10 minutes waiting for him to start walking and he never does. its not under him either or at either of the 2 loc's alla says. any suggestions? i even got a group and killed him to see if he was bugged or something, still no go.

This ground spawn was on the way directly from POD(s) to Noble's causeway. I guessto my ectreme right would be the horgroth *quest guy* and to left would be the 4 or 5 Murgliders. ANyhow, just thought I would not to any of you early risers. If ground spawns happen might wanna just give yourself a morning run and see if anyor up.. Just a side note.. It looks like someone dropped something.. IF it is glowing don't get happy. It is a pally epic drop.

Success today using the Energy Receptor. After about 7 minutes of "Your Energy Receptor does not appear to ba active" messages, it led me to the Blackfall Borer and the Ore was right underneath him. I was Invis and grabbed the ore without a fight.

Note that the Energy Receptor is no rent. Don't camp out till you finish this ir you'll have to retreive the decomposing pages/cover components again.

my question is how do you get the ore? Assuming you don't find it as a ground drop and have to get it from the Blackfall Borer, I read you don't have to kill the borer. Does the Borer drop the ore at a percentage of health, or perhaps hailing it (which I doubt).

Turns out ore drops underneath the Borer's spawn and he is more or less a protector of it. Easy to run in and loot ore and not bother with the Borer, too much =)
