Minion of Darkness Focus

Settling this once and for all concerning this weapon and the focus. My BL just hit 62, and the new warder summoned at this level was focused using the Enchanted Blade. Summoned without the blade, conned lvl 60. Summoned with the blade, conned lvl 61 although there was no focus message given. So, Minion of Darkness does work on summoned pets lvl 56 to 75 (that is the PET LEVEL for those new to this, not the character's level) So, for BL's your lvl 62 pet is the earliest this blade will work on. For Necro's, your lvl 61 pet, and for mage's the first pet focused is the lvl 61 air pet. Hope this helps

Update!!! - Just dinged lvl 59 with a new Necro, got my Emissary of Thule pet (lvl 49 without focus). I used the Intricate Summoner's earring with Summoner's Boon on it, pet did not get focused. HOWEVER!!! I equiped the Enchanted Harpy blade, resummoned pet, and although there was no message it appears the EoT pet got focused! without blade, conned lvl 49, with blade conned lvl 50! so i'm not sure what is going on here as Minion of Darkness is supposed to be pet lvls 56-70

The focus is Spell level dependent. If you look up Minion of Darkness, it lists spells level 56 to 75.

Just dropped on the 3rd level for me yesterday. Nothing special at all. Killed 3 wandering harpies, one shouted for help and popped the enforcer. I've gotten it to spawn on the 2nd level as well just by killing harpies.

As of 5/5/12 this dropped for me on the 2nd level.
Killing all the patrollers, as they are the PH. I dunno about the violent one, but I did kill that one too.
Great focus item!

I was hunting in the roost with my 61 Necro and I have had the Enforcer pop on my a couple times. Fortunately I have learned how to manage aggro kiting the current mob and maintain snare/darkness on the enforcer until I can actually focus on killing the enforcer. That being said, I was overjoyed to get this item to place in my range slot. It was a mild upgrade stats wise to I think my blightfire shard or something like that, but the pet focus is excellent.

My 61 pet was conning DB to me before this item and now it cons Yellow if this is equipped when I summon it. Pet seems a bit stronger and more durable than when I didn't have the focus item. I didn't do elaborate testing like I see that some have done but it does seem to be a great improvement.

I'm hoping I can get it for my BST as well.
Just got one!

Just dropped off a Griffon Enforcer on the Grove Level - Mob just popped on us when we were killing the huts and any wandering mobs.

We've been trying for this for weeks!
Griffon Spawning
# Feb 03 2009 at 8:31 AM Rating: Decent
Been reading all the information about where he has been spawning and all I can say is that I was on 3rd Island last night and caught off guard by the griffon spawning as I had not seen it there before... however, it did spawn 2 more times after that on the 3rd island before I called it a night.
works on necro pet at lvl 59

Works on necro pet at lvl 59. Max hit from went from 65 to 76 for the Emissary of Thule pet.

I should add that I picked one of these up for 4k on the Druzzil Ro server. That could be because the roost is a hotzone right now.

Called Mob Now
# Sep 02 2008 at 12:42 PM Rating: Decent
I have been hunting in here with my 62 Monk and have had him "called" by mobs on both the 3rd Level and the Mesa. Hunting Nobles on mesa and one "called for help" and an enforcer came running and added. FD off and he stuck around to kill him off. Got a blade off him :(
# Jul 15 2008 at 5:12 AM Rating: Decent
Spawned him 3 times in last day and got sword on third spawn (belt on 1st and 2nd).

He spawns randomly each time you pull a harpy patroller, maybe 5% non cumulative chance is my current thinking. The last two times I killed him was during second pull of my lunchbreak and then 30minutes later so no fixed time confirmed. Havn't had him spawn on a noble pull yet so cannot say whether they will trigger him spawning.

Will update spawn info as I get new ones.

p.s. Gave sword to my 62 mage and his 62nd spell dark blue water pet became white 8o) so worthwhile.

new information

it looks like sony fixed the zone guys, i can spawn him with the blade, but it takes about 2 hours to get a drop with a 1/3 ratio, but you gotta kill other nameds that spawn to keep the spawn cycle going. that's on the 2nd island though and I normally spawn him near the quest npc in that area, because it's a safe place out of pathing. hook up with peeps and work together to farm him, it goes alot faster. If you want to spawn him, you gotta to kill ph's fast, because if you wait, the cycle won't go fast enough, and you'll be stuck there all night.

killed him twice in 3. 5 hours and didn't get it. I'm thinking of moving up to 3rd or 4rth island to see if my luck changes.

# Apr 11 2008 at 7:34 PM Rating: Decent
well i killed him total of 2 times today, 1 time last night, and twice other day, and out of those five times, he only dropped the pet focus item once. the first time he spawned for me after 20 mins of killing harpy patrollers, guess i just got lucky. I'm thinking ratio is completely random, but the count is 1/5 kills in 4 days rewarded the item. and if u read my previous posts, u'll see that it can take 3 hours or just 20 mins to spawn him. I tried other islands but this was easiest one to kite and don't gotta worry about peeps stealing camp.
# Apr 11 2008 at 6:32 PM Rating: Decent
confirmed random spawn, can spawn anywhere from 20mins to 4 hours, of killing harpy patrollers. Just spawned him just now, 2nd time in about 3.5 hours.
# Apr 11 2008 at 6:02 PM Rating: Decent
trying to spawn him, done it once, but it was to the front of 2nd island. I was trying to see if killing different spawns of partrollers did it, but it didn't matter. I been here for 3 hours once again and can't spawn him, after he popped once and only dropped a krappy belt.
# Apr 11 2008 at 3:30 PM Rating: Decent
on progession, tss was just unlocked and i tried to sell this for 30k, and people called me dumb, they said it's krap and most anyone will pay is 5k. I just barely got 6k for it.

People would rather just get the don merchant version, but people on this server are stingy anyways.

this guy is a bish to spawn and I'm not completely convinced that his ph is nobles, because I killed only nobles last night and he never spawned, for 3 hours i did this, and then i started killing the normal harpys and then pop there he is, and i also have reason to believe that if you don't kill him soon enough, that he depops and cycle either starts over or does whatever it does in it's normal progress.

either the aforementioned ph is wrong or it's a combination. I been flagged for this island and peeps are too lazy to get flagged and camp him, so they just farm plat and go buy the one from don camps.

I hope this info helps someone. Thanks for your time, have a nice day.

ok i figured out some of the spawn cycle of this, i was wiping patrolling harpys as normal and then i noticed a blue harpy that was wandering named "a violent harpy", which was weird because till now only the nobles were blue and the patrollers were all purple, and i say this not refering to con, but the actual graphic.

My theory is, you kill patrolling harpys and then violent harpy spawns and thats the direct ph for the griffon enforce for this particular island. I could have killed him before and never even notice.

sony just screwed up the island where he drops it, they added mobs that do not belong, so now not only is he uncommon where he drops it, but it's also now quite a pain to pull singles because a new mob called "a harpy" aoe agroes. basically sony filled it with extra mobs so lev50 necro's can't solo kite it.

I looted this item this morning and wanted to share where and how. I found this item on the 3rd Level. After porting up, I followed teh cliff line to the spire that ports you to first lvl. Close to that 1st lvl spireport is a cliff wall area where no mobs seem to path to. I pulled harpies to this area and kited them uninterrupted or aggroed until the Griffon popped. I killed 4 harpies to get pop.

I am a lvl 58 necro. Most harpies con'd white to me and other than there annoying occassional spells, were not hard to defeat. They do hit you with spells that cause you to sit, dd and something that tried to effect my eyes.

The Griffon Enforcer popped halfway through the last mob, I fd'd, let the harpy forget me as the Enforcer wandered off quickly. I medd'd and watch the Enforcer return to right beside the spireport that takes you back to first lvl. When ready, I Cascaded him (snare), dot'd up and sent pet in. I kited him in the area mentioned without incident or even seeing another mob. Actually, he seemed easier than harpies- but then i did not let him hit me at all :) . he does not cast and did not resist any of my spells. At 58, he con'd yellow to me.

Hope this is helpful. Once you get to the area i am talking about you will recognize where and what i am saying. It seems to be true this item will not work on your pet until lvl59, at least for a necro. My servant of bones does not benefit from this item, but in a lvl I will have my new pet :) .

Best Wishes All!

This does not work for beastlord pets under lvl 68. It says it does but it does not. GM say too bad and developers ignore the issue. dont waste your time or plat to get it.

Griffon Pops alot
# Feb 16 2007 at 4:09 AM Rating: Decent
The Griffon was sitting off to the right inside the bear cave on island 1. Killed it about 40 times never got the harpy blade :o( I hope to get it unless EQ nerfs this mob. After TBS came out this mob was popping every time you killed it. With today's patch it might be nerfed. I hope not love to get a harpy blade.

If you click on the link to the "a griffon enforcer" you'll see that the people have posted of his spawnings on various levels, each level he spawns on has a different loot table. you will only ever get the Razorsharp griffon quill and the ring off the version that is on level 1.

Maybe if you post this a few more times, SOE will notice and nerf it,or perhaps you could just send them a email........

they will appear
# Feb 03 2007 at 11:51 PM Rating: Default
You keep killing normal harpies on 2nd island and they will call for help (sometimes it takes along while) and they will either pop on you or come at you in 20-30 secs lol. Never seen any named call for help. But just keep killing harpies and there will eventually show up. hope that helps.

thank you. u just confirmed my theory of ph's.
OMG 116k drops off 2nd island!!
# Feb 03 2007 at 11:46 PM Rating: Default
No wonder eq is going downhill. blade drops off island 2. I have done island 3 well over 200 aa's and have never ever seen it drop there. killed a few on island 2 and it dropped btw i sold my for 10k. Its pretty bad when people dont wanna say where it drops so they can farm the crap out of it.
