Does this item spawn in GoD (or prior expansions) or only when the 1.5 goes live in Omens?

Unable to get inside the castle from PoD. Entrance in PoD is locked and requires a key.

Thank you.

I used the illusion top get through the door. Pact of the Wurine works for this door.

You have to kill Gryme the Crypt Guardian for his key which is TEMPORARY!

Just posting info for those beastlords going for this, I as a 71 beastlord (buffed to about 16k hp, 11k mana, 2.2k ac) was able to fight my way all the way to this and pick it up. Simply work your way in killing mobs the 2 at a time, take out Gryme for the key (not too hard, have a few heal potions with ya). When you get to the spider, walk in and aggro so his guards run after ya and kill them. Then run past the spider. As posted, it is permarooted so you will just take a couple hits. Once past the spider you will enter a square room that has a few mobs in it. When I did this, I got 2 knights of pestilance and 1 firebone caster type. Your loot piece is on the other side of this room, entering the hallway to your left in the cubby. Either run through and pick it up and then die, or you can kill the 3 at a time, which I did without much hassle.

Anyway, just some info to show that it is soloable to obtain this piece with a little patience in working up slowly. Good luck fellow beastlords in your 1.5 adventure.

Edit* Forgot to mention I only have 62 AA, so nothing major there either.

Does anyone have any idea what the respawn time is on the Roaring Grass? My bst and my friend's bst (both 73) had no probs getting to the area at all. To use that annoying key, you just do an overhead view and hit your "U" button on your keyboard..voila! The mobs were all quite manageable...we pulled the two guards on either side of the spider (she is perma rooted for sure) and kill them, then run past the spider into the next room, which has three or four mobs...slow all and kill 'em...easy stuffs! The roaring grass ground spawn will be on your left when you leave that mob room. But, PLEASE let me know what the respawn is!! Thanks!

just wanted to let you know this piece cannot be soloed at least lvl 75 bst was not able to, however it can be duo'ed 75 bST and 70 shammy have some ITU potions ready too. but easily can kill key guy for door key then when up in spiders room your going to have to pull the whole room behind spider which i believe is like 4 or 5 mobs /pets . pets are really just a neusense. once those mobs are dead walk past spider she is perma rooted so will only get a few attacks on you before you get thru hallway kk once in room that you just pulled there is an alcove back there that goes to antoehr room in that alcove is where Roaring grass spawns you can then pick it up and gate out. doing this solo I dont see happening you would at least need a healer or maybe even a FD puller to pull that room so you can pick up grass another thing you can do is run in you will agro all mobs pick up grass if it is there and then die .. but once you got it dont matter.. and KEy holder is a bugger without a healer type..

P.S. sorry for mispelling bad i know

The trick with the key is, to hold it on your cousor and hit the "U" key to open the door.

Ok so I was first going after the grummus flag then last night and to get to him we had to clear everything and the spider. It took about 5 hours to finaly get down to grummus but before that was the spider. We took down the spider in about 2-3 minutes had a 70 pally 15k hp roughly tanking it me and 64 beastlord that was healing everyone and we had a few others. We had 7 people total with use because we were going for the grummus flag raid. The spider was easy to take down but after we got a bunch of adds. Make sure to stay back in the bigger room after you kill the spider because the spider spawns a bunch of littler spiders and the mobs in the room behind the spider. We all died the we got out rez in the graveyard then rand back. We killed all of those mobs that jusmped us before and we also got a lvl 74 cleric to help us out and a few others. I got the Roaring grass. It was on the ground on the left at the back of the hall where the spider was. If you have any questions please ask me.

We killed the key holder with a group of 66 cleric 66 monk and 70 Enchanter 70 Ranger 70 BST and a humble 60 wizard. The Bst held the key and clicked 16 ways from sunday on that door for a long luck...monk got Rogue shroud and got the message ' this door can not be lockpicked ' Someone told me to load the "Fade" spell worked!!! Soo....Forget the stupid yourselves alot of hassel and buy everyone in group a Spirit Shift Potion (20PP in the baz on our server)...stand very close to door...clicky clicky potion...and you are in. Easy Peasey. killed a few mobs...they fell fast to our moderatly geared group. no spider queen up...enc mezzed the guys near the drop...yes they take charm and mez....BST got his roaring grass and we left. One more a precaution... I cast group TL just b4 going into the room where the spider queen usually is. The TL window stays up for 5 after he got his drop everyone just clicked yes to the TL and they were gone...I cast evac as a precautionary measure at the last minute to make sure no one was left behind. We are thinking that maybe since we did not open the door...the spider queen was not there. ? anyway...hope this helps :D

Sad to say shadow step no longer works on this part. Definitely bring a friend to help with Gryme, he's a nasty one!
Just got the drop

Just got the drop for my 67 Beastie and we had a 67 Beastie, 68 cleric, 63 cleric, 69 warr and high 50's rogue. I had helped in a Grummus raid a few weeks back so had a rough idea where this ground spawn was. I had a LOT of trouble getting Gryme's key to work.

I had to scroll into 1st person and get close to the door (could actually see thru it) and then click key on door + press the 'U' key......I tried so many ways before this and none others worked.

Good luck to all you Beastie's working on your 1.5 ! I'm in the middle of doing some turn in's hehe

i have also had the same problem have the key bu tthe door will not open
what are you guys talking about....???
# Nov 07 2005 at 11:53 PM Rating: Decent
You guys are talking about PoN and the item says PoD - Disease.. NOT Nightmare. I'm on my way to the castle in PoD - which is at the +65 and +1777 loc that the item gives us.
Kinda crazy - I was looking according to your post since we had a raid in PoN tonight... then I looked at the item and I realized it said PoD. Anyway - I'll post an update if I find it.

How easy is it to get
# Jul 15 2005 at 11:24 AM Rating: Decent
I hear this is in the castle past the spider. is there a way to invis or solo to this ground spawn or do you have to tag along on a Grummus raid?
RE: How easy is it to get
# Aug 29 2005 at 10:23 PM Rating: Decent
It's possible to do with one group or a little less. You need a couple people along to get the key from Gryme on the way. Then just fight to the spider's area, get a HoT on the beastlord, and have him run past the spider. (she's permarooted) Using your Protection of Spirit at the same time would also help.
