This dropped off Garanel Rucksif in Unrest tonight along with cyclops toes. Weird.

If you are looking for the AC these days, he's been moved to seafury island. It appears to be random from any of the cyclops spawns.
still exists

Just killed the ancient cyclops in OOT after clearing the island 1 time. He popped at loc 2408.73, -3501.48, -291.57. He dropped the Ring of the Ancients.

The AC popped in his usual location on AC island. He also popped while clearing the seafury's on their island. 2 confirmed spawn spots. He did not show up fabled unfortunately.
AC moved to seafury island in OOT

Funny how theres 3 or 4 spawn sites and ppl never mention which one they are camping:) In OOT since the february 2007 TBS expansion the AC has moved to seafury island. camped the AC island 25 hours and no pop. a mage on seafury island let me know he had killed the AC 3 times in the last couple of days. mudtoe on seafury island may have as many as 20 alts up at same time. my 51 warrior with skinspikes killed em with virt on and it took about 15 min:( hes killed mudtoe a few times withoug spawning AC on seafury island:( not sure mudtoe is the PH now:(

Alright, Im going to tell you what we did as of 2/3/05, 10:30 real time.

Let me set the scene. It's just me and my friend Rygor, in Sro. People come in and out. I am a 36 mage, he is a 23 Warrior. We simply did the following, all times are in game time:

5pm-9pm: Random killings, spiders, undead, everything
9pm: The necro at the tower is up, kill him, then kill "crypt mummy" inside the tower
9pm-10pm: Random killings, killed necro and mummy in tower once more each.
11pm: Terrantula spawns, he is whooping our butts, luckily some guildies were in the zone so they came and killed it.
2am: I look over the hill just north of the tents, and low and behold, a giant cyclops running around with a spear. We simply meleed it to death, since I couldnt land a single nuke. He was very easy. When he was at 10% though, a sand giant came up and started hitting us, this is a problem. The AC is easy, but the giants are too strong for us. I run like hell, Rygor stays back, kills the AC, loots the ring, and sprints to Oasis, I gate out and we live to fight again. Now we are off to do the turn in.

--Kill any spiders, undead, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, the guys at the sunken tower. Feel free to kill other things too, not sure if they are related or not
--We did not kill a single giant
--We killed the Terr. once
--Killed 2 Terr.-ings
--Spawned AC, simple as that.

I hope this is helpful, this is my second time killing this bugger. Now I need to do it twice more and Im done with him forever. Wish me luck.

--Side note, this is the same thing I did the first time I spawned him, stick with this and you should get him in no time, took us about 1-2hrs real time to get the job done.--

Follow up:

Rygor still has his ring, too lazy to get on and finish the quest, hehe.

I was trying to sell a stack of dyes one day, after auctioning for WTS, I offered to trade them to someone who would help me spawn and kill the AC, for my necro's boots.

Lucky me, a guy sends me a tell, and we head to Sro, during conversation I mentioned the item was called "Ring of the Ancients," to my suprise, the guy says his dad's character has a ring and he will MQ it for me, /cheer.

Long story short, I got the boots, he got the dyes, its been a good week for me. =)

i walked into south ro desert at 38 stood there ran around maybe 5 minutes the Ac was standing right in front of me I killed him took his ring he had 6pp and 100silver on him he died fairly quick he only has about 1200hp he was a fairly light mob .
# Sep 12 2004 at 2:35 AM Rating: Decent
I found it fairly easy to spawn the AC. First thing I did was kill all the undead around the undead tower. Then looked for any giant around and killed them. oh yeah and killed that named goblin too, everyone who says they did it killed him so i did too.

LoL now i'm having trouble getting a rapier...seen lots of scythes...any chance that's the same?
# Sep 22 2004 at 11:33 AM Rating: Decent
Nope, you deffo need the rapier. Try killing the warrior shadowmen - they dual weld so you have a higher chance at getting the rapier. Oh & it does look like a fencing foil so easy to spot.

Sat in OoT for like 15min and he spawned.
RE: Fast.
# Sep 11 2005 at 6:34 PM Rating: Decent
If I remember right OoT is a 30+ hours active killing of the PH'er to get him to spawn. If you killed him in 15 min. then someone must have quit killing the PH'er just short of his spawn time or you were the first person after a patch to kill the PH'er which with set to be very short to spawn the AC.

Yes, this is 2 years past your post .. but i've been playing WoW instead /wink.

I'm sorry to tell you but your "memory" did not serve you well. The AC, at least in OOT, is/was a random spawn. I personally have killed it three times in a row while camping for alts. Other times, I have gone for literally days without seeing anything but place holders.

I just recently returned to the game and am gearing up my 4th acct. So I came here looking for relevant and current posts ... seems the game following is fading.
spawn more common?
# Jun 27 2004 at 2:21 PM Rating: Decent
I have to wonder if the spawn has been changed on the AC because in 5 years of playing (and admitedly not much looking) I have seen/killed the AC a total of One time. Now, in the last week, my wife has been
playing in S Ro and has seen Three of them, 2 of which she killed (so now 2 of my characters have Jboots) and 1 of which she had me kill, so one of her characters could have them.

Either the spawn changed, or she and I have been extremely lucky...whichever, we are loving the boots! :D

Could be that, or perhaps hes just less in demand.

I was killing seafurbies one day in OOT trying to spawn tainted for my epic, and the cyclops had been up earlier, I didn't even have enough mana to keep furbies down so I wasn't messing with him. Anyway, he somehow depopped and popped the AC. So I just strolled on over and grabbed the ring and went back to working on my epic. That never used to happen, having camped him with a few different friends a long time ago.

I killed the AC twice in one real life day. I had camped my player in Sro just before a patch and was one of the lucky ones to be first to get on the server. When I logged into Sro and looked around the AC was up and walking around. I killed him and looted the ring. I then moved my 6 lvl necro into the zone and camped him on the south wall and messed around with my main for a short while. Had to go to work second shift. I got off work and was still in Sro. Started killing mobs while talking in guild chat and within 15 min. the AC popped again. I pulled him to the south wall and killed him again. Logged my 6 level necro on and looted my second ring in one day.
Finally all mine

Woo what a rush, killed a SG in NW corner of zone, turned around and saw him by dark elf camp. did a / enter, 15 ppl in zone...oh boy...Seemed like 100 miles, running... even with SoW it seemed to take an eternity, watching his HP the whole time, expecting to see it go down.... got to him first, engaged, used Mighty Strike, no one else even noticed, all mine!! Heart was pounding, palms sweating lol what a rush....was considering bragging, linking in /ooc but nah just bragged to group and guild hehe No more sow potions, askin for sow, etc...
camped, spawned, killed, and ring looted!

just for anyone's information...

camped at OOT spot for about 3hr 40min, and Ancient Cyclops finally spawned.

he's back

First day after the end of the Fabled mobs I was able to get the 'normal' AC in SoRo. Just killed about everything I saw, though he showed up right after killing a SG.

Does the bloody AC still spawn? I have either REALLY bad luck or he doesn't spawn any longer. Was killing everything in sight with my 55 mage in S Ro for like 5 hours with no AC spawning. Then I have spent like 5 days, 6 hours each in OOT at the single spawn area.

Man I hate this camp ... just wondering if they stopped his spawn while they had the "fabled" mobs running around.

I used my 37 druid to gate to SRO to just see if any kind of giants where there. I had just heard of the AC. Well, boom there he was. No one took him so I tried. I remember him resisting all my spells but one the whole time. Was kinda hard to kill but I managed to get the ring right away. Sorry for those who wait. Hehe. I am getting what I deserve for the Glowing Black Stone
Can't waer ring
# Nov 13 2003 at 7:41 PM Rating: Decent
Was in OOT camping Seafuries and checking the AC spawn, when I saw him from seafury island, I swam as fast as i could, slowed, doted, put pet on him. Beserker Strenghted pet, till I Was OOM (I started the fight at 20% mana and 70% life) rooted and crossed my fingers.

He fell said AHHHHhrg my precious ring and gave it to me... how ever
whats up with that? i wanna pimp it out on the way to Rathe
RE: Can't waer ring
# May 06 2004 at 9:20 AM Rating: Default
Ummmm, pretty sure its a ring for GIANTS which means they are BIG and probably will look more like a BELT to you.

Do people use their brains?????

APparently not.

# Feb 03 2004 at 7:35 PM Rating: Decent

Did you equip it on your wrist? :/ Even though it's called a ring, it's a wrist item, not fingers.

Ok, not sure about this ph thing. Camped him one night on Mithmarr, and as a 62 bard with aoe songs, literally killed EVERYTHING in the vicinity of the sand area (minus the dervs). I would snag 10-15 at a time using my fists, and then use melody of mischief, denon's bereverment, and Chords of Dissonance to kill every one within 20 seconds. I killed all the "placeholders" that were on track, and then some. Could someone help me here? Also had my brother on his 57 ranger running around assisting with the slaughter, and at one point ran out of mobs to kill, te he he.

RE: PH's?
# Nov 29 2003 at 10:13 AM Rating: Decent
the only place with known PH is in OoT jsut west of sister island .. PH is either "a Pirate" or a named ogre (whimp) .. just kill everything till he spawns .. took me 14 hours at the camp

LOC of spawn is POS1120, NEG 7950 ... as a suggestion .. if pirate pops - Just wait for despawn on them .. else u become KOS to pirate camp in IC .. ( makes 8th shawl quest interesting if you ever need or want to do it)

This is soooo wrong. The "A Pirate" is on Pirates of Gunthak faction, not Pirates of Iceclad. I killed the "A Pirate" in OOT many many times, and am on very good faction with the gnome pirates in Iceclad.

Pirates of Gunthak faction starts out KoS to all anyway, so you don't really lose any real faction with anyone.

We had camped the AC off and on in south ro before. Saw it twice. Once in north east
corner of zone, but someone else got him.
Other time was by the dalk elf merchants.
Since they had hit him once, we lost loot.

Yesterday I went to sro to farm some essence of
sunlight and the AC was up.

He was by the wall near the undead tower.
Don't know if it is related but the zone
had lots of spiders at the same time.

Did not get the time of day in game.
kill steals

I just found out that not everyone is a kill stealer in SRO. I'm a 39 warrior, and grouped with a 39 beastlord to kill 2 SG's that were up in SRO, we were gettin hurt pretty bad so we decided to go to POK to get clarity for him and temperance for me. We zone back in and what do we find?...........The AC is up!! =) we took him down with hardly a scratch on either of us. The best part about the whole deal is that Clawslice, (the beastlord) was one of the coolest people i've met. He agreed to do a /random 100, highest # wins, to decide who got the ring, he rolled a 19 and i rolled 48. I got the ring and couldn't be happier. THANKS for being a great sport Clawslice!!! =)
