too long

Got last week, but omg, that was so long....
One full week to get this mask (6h/day). Overseer Dal`guur is not the main mobto pop in the room. It pops approx 1/4. And mask is rare. So I probably killed 30 Overseer to pick up the mask.
PH are Veteran Overseer and Scarred Overseer.
It's maybe the worst farm I did in eq. But the mask is now in my bag :)

So it seemed for me I found some small glimmer of hope (or perhaps a kinship in misery) by reading others experiences on this page, my character sitting idly in wait for yet another spawn while I perused the verbal replays people have left of their camps, recounting their highs and lows. In fact, I read many of your posts time and time again. It served as an affirmation of sorts that yes, the mask will drop, and no, I'm not alone. In repayment of your stories getting me through my own, allow me to add my tale to our catalog of misery.

It's first worth noting that I served my time on the Phinigel (TLP) server, during the Planes of Power expansion. A few elements recounted in tales below didn't apply on Phinigel. Primarily 1) there was no longer a roamer present while camping Overseer Dal`guur, and 2) the respawn timer for Overseer Dal`guur was 16 minutes on the nose. Should these be applicable strictly to Phinigel--or changes rolled out to all servers--I do not know.

Unfortunately, I did not keep record of how many placeholders vs. named spawns I had. Likewise, I did not document how many of each particular item dropped. I can say that my most common drop--naturally--was the backstabber. My second most common drop was the signet. Third most, the cloak. And my least seen item, of course, was the mask. During my time there I also received Iksar Skin Gloves, Edge of Cabilis, a couple Sarnak Battle Shield, numerous Tribal War masks and boots, and a Stave of Shielding.

My camping began on 3/2/17, and ended on 3/9/17; over the span of these eight days, I sat down for fourteen individual sessions, as laid out below.

1st camp: 4.5 hours
2nd camp: 3 hours
3rd camp: 9.5 hours
4th camp: 6.5 hours
5th camp: 5.5 hours
6th camp: 8.5 hours
7th camp: 1.5 hours
8th camp: 5.5 hours
9th camp: 1 hour
10th camp: 3.5 hours
11th camp: 11 hours (odd coincidence)
12th camp: 5 hours
13th camp: 5 hours
14th camp: 2 hours 26 minutes to mask drop

Total time invested: ~72 hours 26 minutes

It seems like I trended high on my investment, but sincerely, I'm just relieved to have not joined the 100h+ club that a few people here have had to endure. You'll come to loathe the sight of a dagger in his hand, but you'll push through with the surge of hope you get when he spawns simply making a fist; most of all, remember that it'll drop; you just gotta see it through.

Cheers, luck, and happy hunting to you!
Finally got mine

I have gone out for a few hours of camping at a time over the past year. Went back last night and today and spent about 9 more hours camping this guy before I finally got the mask to drop. I lost count, but I killed the Overseer about 20 times total with another 50 placeholder kills. He dropped the ring twice, the cape 3 times, the dagger about 15 times, and the mask finally. At higher levels its still fun in this place as a rogue.

I worked all the PH's for the lower level and could hit 11 named spots between spawns, bank useful or vendor items and have time to spare. The banker is lvl 99 but does not agro and with using sneak behind him I could put all the stuff in the shared bank. So no need to leave really.

After the super long camp with the rogue I dont think my bard will be getting this mask.
Super lucky

I've played several bards over the years, it's probably my all time favorite class in any MMO ever. So I've done this camp a few times, and know how frustrating it can be. I just recently relapsed into EQ once again recently, trying out the Firiona Vie server for the first time(well, the first serious time). I started a new bard, and when he was 54, I was wandering around kunark, and decided to pop into chardok. I pop in, check track, see that this guy was up. I slowly fight my way down to his area(with my tank mercs help), as there were several see invis mobs along the way. I make it to the overseer, kill him(again, with the help of the fact that tank mercs are OP at these younger levels, Overseer was a yellow con at 54). Check his corpse, and there was the mask...

First time killing him(on this character), not even needing to camp placeholders, just stroll right in and get my mask!

I missed out on Chardok back in the day. It took me a good half hour to find my way to the marker i placed on my map. I arrived to find Overseer Dal'guur already spawned. He drops the cloak. Second spawn is a placeholder. Third spawn is Overseer. He drops the mask. Total time at camp maybe 32 minutes or so. #Lucky

Reading further down the list, you see the history of the drop -- it was no different for me. It's an extremely rare drop with a craptastic drop percentage.

In other words, keep at it or give up for a while before you start gouging your eyes out with a rusty spoon.

It made me want to gouge mine out, but hey, if a little levity makes you this snippy, maybe it's time to take a break and go know, where there are people and not pixels? People with whom you can improve your communication skill-set, such as it is.

I realize you're very likely ESL based on your egregious use of the language, so, you may want to peruse a book or three on punctuation, spelling, and sentence structure on English to avoid future miscommunication.

This is one of those camps that you are either lucky or you are not.

On the Cazic Thule Server this is camped about 50% of the time, so log in early if you want your spot. There were people continually asking if I was camping the overseer. I started camping this on a Friday night. Spent 2 -3 hours with no luck. I was out of town on Sat, and logged back in Sunday to find someone at the camp. He (we will just call him Senior Rogue) told me that he had been there non stop since Sat am and gotten no drop. Monday I was out of town again and logged back in when I got back, for an hour to camp the spot, when Senior Rogue logs back in and lets me know he has been here non stop and just had to take a nap (I understand that feeling). After the hour was up I handed the camp over to Senior Rogue and let him spend another all nighter. Tuesday I logged back in about 4pm, no one at the camp. Killed the PH and everything even close to where I was. Overseer Dal'Guur popped up and I remember thinking (well the server did reset last night, but there is no way he will have the mask). He had the mask. Less than 6 hours camping total, and I got the mask. Senior Rogue was not on to let me know if he got it..... I hope he did.
Frustrating, but worth it!

The picture of the map on the Mob's page is the correct spawn location, and it is an extremely rare drop (you will get tired of seeing daggers and rings very quickly)

At 72 All I did was have my normal melee songs up and a Tank merc (J1) on agressive.. Check the comp every 20 minutes or so, and read a book or watch a movie. I imagine that Rogues could use a similar technique. Just remember to always set your tank merc as the main tank, or he may not pick up all of the mobs!

Took a couple days of on and off camping, but it did drop, hooray!

After numerous hours, days, weeks of time put into camping this mask I finally got it last night..

A few notes, I started as a 62 Bard with no AA's, went down with a cleric merc and got easily overwhelmed with dogs that could see through invis and the random undead that could as well. Went and got fade, trained right to him, fade, set up shop.

He or his PH spawn every 16min, there is 1 wanderer, the Sarnak Investigator (grey con) and a Sarnak Breeder, also on the same timer. I probably put in a grand total of 48 hours in, but left with 230 AA's and about 10k worth of PP / equip.

Good luck!

10+ years ago (Before Fading Memories) I raised my faction to go down there and solo this mob in my 60s. Camped it forever, never dropped, basically made me quit EQ.

So when I came back to EQ i didnt want to camp that, but I did at level 85, just walked down there and set myself afk with merc on aggressive and came back to the computer every once in a while.
After 12 hours and checking every 20 minutes (spawn time is 15 mins or so) I got my mask on the last spawn before I was gonna close the computer and go sleep.

GL everybody trying to get it, you can be lucky or camp it for ever, you will get it! (probably killed 100x Overseer Dal'gur if I count all the time I camped him back in the days, I wasnt lucky at all )

So it still drop, took me forever to realize that I am one damn ugly Hafling!!

The good news is I got the mask. The bad news is I had to clear the path to this guy with my lvl 80 for my lvl 50 bard. Its DEEP in Chardok. Basically there are 2 placeholders for the Overseer. One is called Scarred the other is called Veteran. In my personal exerience all three had a equal chance of spawning (About 33%). This is good news because it would have really sucked if the Overseer had been a ultra rare spawn, for me he was not. Now the bad news, I am positive this mask is a 1% drop rate. I got very lucky however and on the 23rd hour of camping him he dropped the mask for my very happy bard. Yes it still drops, hope this helps someone take care ).

I've read a few rumors this thing was taken out of the game. It definitely has not been removed.

I went down to the Overseer's spawn point, killed the PH. He popped after and dropped the mask. I was ready to camp this guy for a few days based on previous posts, but I lucked out and he dropped it first kill. The loc on the Overseer's page and is accurate, 420, 165, -302. PH are non-named overseer's.

This is not the worst camp I have ever done in EQ, but it is certainly right up there in the top 10.

137 kills of this spot over 4 days, about 1 in 4 were named. If not for assurances that it still does in fact still drop I think I would have given up much earlier. Well over half the named drop the dagger which he wields visibly, cloak was frequent, ring kind of rare - only 4 of those - and mask.... very rare drop on that, obviously.

On the other hand, to relieve boredom and because as rogue I could use both the bank and merchant I took my druid down there as well, pulled and AEd the crap out of mobs in the surrounding area, including kennel master/deathfang, herbalist and underboss camps. At the end of the day around 80K plat up between the two chars, numerous drops for tribute. Plus the rogue earned around 30 AA at level 65 at 100% to AA.

I wish you all much better luck than I had, however even if not, perseverance pays in the end.
