Shadowed Knife

This was the hardest part to obtain as a 31 necro on the time-locked progression server. I made 3 short efforts (5 chief kills in total) to get the knife drop.

With a 24 wiz partner, the camp was broken with relative ease. Solo, this was not possible as slow regen meant downtime > respawn rate.

So my solo strat was to sacrifice the pet on the chief and burn him down, then feign while letting the adds leave. I was pulling from up on the ridge, which can bring tons of adds from below if not careful.

Due to breaking the camp, the easier /con goblins had respawned with some dark blue shamans... this complicated things as they heal everything around them. Ultimately the shamans cost me a death (dotted heavily) but I was able to loot the knife before the dark end.

If doing this oldschool, you might want help if attempting under level 35.

Anyone geared-up post TSS probably can resist everything they cast and skinspike potion the whole island dead on a cast of temperance around level 25-30. Runners do bring lots of help though.
Wondering if...

I was wondering if the Shadowed Knife offa the Shadowed men would work for the harvester quest. Any help would be hot.

I'm currently doing the Harvester quest with the help of a few of my friends. We killed the goblin head master (no problem AT ALL for a 30 chanter, 29 Necro, 22 Ranger and 31
Looted the knife after we killed it, ported out, and Wah-la.

Now for the rest of the quest =(

Watch out, there was a giant cyclopse roaming the island when we killed the headmaster.

Does the shadowed knife from shadowed men work as good as the one from the goblin?
this item IS a rare drop

I camped the gob headmaster for 5 hrs... still no drop. So, I'd say the item is rare :)

I camped the goblin head master for 2 lvls worth of exp and he droped the dagger a good 85-90% of the time i killed him so it's not so rare and at lvl 33 he was still giving up 1/2 a blue per kill and is a fairly quick spawn

Damn, the past three daggers that have looked promising in INT for my chanter have fallen flat... *sniffle* Can anyone think of a dagger that can be equipped in the range slot that offers INT for a chanter? Email at if you do, PLEASE!

^.^ *kisses*

dagger of marnek, drops of the thaugumest or sumtin in befallen, i can take out the zone at lvl 32 and only thing that posses a threat is Boodin Babbinsnort, and hes dubios and it for the cleric gauntlets of the ardent quest, the thaugumest spawns at the same place priest amiz does, thru the secret door, across from the bottom of the well, gt an eq atlas map to find it

Dagger of Marnek is Necro-only, so while my Necro has one in their range slot it's not much good to a chanter :).
Wrong mob

This is for the Harvester quest and drops from a Goblin Headmaster on the goblin island across from the sister island.
No rent?
# Jan 24 2001 at 12:49 AM Rating: Default
Is it no rent like most of the stuff shadowed men drop? I could use the 2 int.
RE: No rent?
# Feb 18 2001 at 6:34 PM Rating: Default
No it is not no rent. It drops off the Goblin Headmaster in OOT as his rare drop.
RE: No rent?
# Mar 29 2001 at 8:05 AM Rating: Excellent
I would not call it the Goblin Headmasters rare drop, becuase I would not think I was so lucky as to get a "Rare Drop" item 4 out of 5 times killing the Headmaster.
