I got this dagger recently; it doesn't have a damage bonus on it. Are there different versions of this item?

According to Brewall Maps, once you drop down the well the room where this mob spawns is the right tunnel to the right.

The dagger only is dropped by few mobs and in a specific location. look around in the zone until you happen to find a well, drop down and follow the cavern until you hit a path on the right, when there, take the fork to the left and pow, the mobs you need (after this using the "Origin" AA in your window by pressing V, it'll get you out in a pinch)
It still drops

Dagger of Marnek dropped late 2004 off of Priest Amiaz. Strange as it seems, this priest was wearing plate armor and I suspected he was a Shadow Knight.
Still Drops?

I've been through abuot 10 spawn cyles and never seen the Thauma or the dagger. Does it still drop here?

I went into befallen and right to the preist and the other mob ( I forget how to spell her name ) first drop was the dagger and the chipped bone rod. Easy pickings.
Still drops

I tried for hours after they turned befallen into a higher level zone and it never dropped. They have fairly recently returned befallen to its origional state and i just looted it 3/13.

I've had this dagger since August of 1999 when at level 6 a lvl 50 gnome cleric named Nogg gave it to me. Don't know what the camp is like, but intel and mana in range is good to have.

the camp is pretty easy, befallen.. it just takes a bit of time
Not on EMarr

No longer seems to drop on EMarr. constantly camped by monks, but been a no-show for weeks on end...

Still Drops

A guildie just got this out of Befallen the other night and gave it to me for my necro. Not sure of the rarity but he wasn't even in there camping it so good luck to all you monks.

Saw this for sale by a mercahnt in the Rivervale rogue guild, of all places. Wish I knew it was for this quest; I would have bought it. I've seen it auctioned in WC and EC, so it must still drop.
Mana, not just int

At 40 I finally upgraded away from the dagger of Marnek that was given to me long ago when I was a young'n in s karana. I'm an Erudite, so I can get by with not too much int on my items. The bonus I need is mana.

And of course it's not just a range item; you can actually wield it, as I had been doing ever since I got my crystalline eye.

This rocks
# May 06 2001 at 12:22 AM Rating: Default
Got to admit this is a nice INT object. Fits nicely in the range slot for us Necro's. I picked mine up for 13pp. Next to doing the quest in Qeynos for the INT earrings, INT was never so cheap.

-I agree with tmetcalf....-
Um, wrong answer... I'm sorry. You've been disqualified.
I've had one on my necro since level 6, and always carried in my range slot (Walrus tooth in primary, Harvester in secondary, and DoM in range).

RE: range slot?

Interesting to read that as it is currently sitting in my ranged slot at the moment. I even take it out and melee with it at times when my spells won't land, or I'm oom, and am able to put it right back. But since you said it can not be put in the range slot without telling us that you probably play a class that can't use it, I guess I'll have to not put it in my ranged slot anymore. Right.

wrong prices(as always)
# Apr 10 2001 at 9:11 PM Rating: Default
this is worth one helluva lot more than 35pp or whatever
becuase it is plus int and can be putn in range slot, it nakes it far more valuable
RE: wrong prices(as always)
# May 15 2001 at 3:04 PM Rating: Decent
You are mistaken. It can be used by 2 classes; by necros as a +3 int range slot item...

AND by monks to obtain their purple headband. I know a monk that would pay ya 100pp so he doesn't have to go down to Befallen at level 40 and kill greenies while newbies complain, in an effort to get the Thaumaturgist to spawn so he can get his purple headband so he can get his Robe of the Whistling Fists, so he can....
RE: wrong prices(as always)
# Apr 21 2001 at 2:57 AM Rating: Decent
Sorry but this price is right as it is a realativly easy item to obtain and can only be used by 1 class this creates a limited market therefore bring the price down i know i bought mine for 30 pp

This is basically the same stats as a students homework, except for the 10 save vs magic on the homework. True it is necro only, but necro is a popular class. Camping thaumaturgist is a royal pain. rare spawn, with multiple possible spawn points, have to clear the whole room (3 spawns), not just one spawn. I would have never bothered to do this camp, except that I was caming Gynok for the paw of oppala. I saw the Thurmaturgist 2 times in about 7 hours. He dropped this twice, along with 2 different crappy robes. In contrast, I was in a group clearing the library in ToFS, and the angry librarian popped twice in less than one hour, and dropped the homework both times (too bad, I wanted the syllabus).

Befallen was empty when I did my camp, so I camped everything. All the SKs, the Thaumaturgist, Gynok, and was hoping for the priest, for a monk friend. Ended up with the chipped bone rod, 2 sets of barbed armplates and legplates, 2 daggers of marnek (yes I know they are lore, I camped my necro at the zone and transferred one), some crappy 2 ac ring, and two plat rings (again one on the necro, although this time, I had help from a friendly druid (who had showed up to PL a lvl 7 pally) who held the ring while I switched chars). Made the Gynok camp a lot more bearable (the second ring is for a friend, who's questing the paw with me, not to farm).
