Spawning the junk beast

Killed the junk beast today...to spawn him, I just did a lap of the outdoor area, killing everything. I don't think he has a static placeholder, because when I first caught sight of him (on my second lap), he was moving, so I believe that he spawns in place of one or more of the wandering mobs. He was entering the west side of the large open area where the greasy clockwork spawns when I saw him.

Although I did kill the mobs in two of the areas that are behind the big doors (specifically, the area to the east once the outdoor "ring" turns north, and the area to the south of the large open area where the greasy clockwork spawns), the junk beast didn't spawn in either of them, so there's no need to kill in those areas if all you're after is the junk beast.

EDIT: Confirmed- Junk Beast is not a static mob. I went in today, was standing in the east-side passage that leads into the large area where the greasy clockwork spawns, and I saw him walk into the west-side passage, heading south (meaning that he had been approaching from the next large open area to the west), and then he stopped. This is key, because the first time I saw him, he was in about the same place, but he was running towards me, probably because I was heading west and got into his aggro range. In any event, it's now confirmed that his PH is (or at least can be) one of the wandering mobs.

My 58 druid/ranger duo with Warrior and healer merc were in PoI working along when this thing jumped on us.

I wasn't sure what it was but it was only yellow con and I vaguely remembered it as a "named".

It was an incredibly long fight (maybe 40 mins) but the merc cleric never ran out of mana. it was odd that I'd check and see her at 50% and next time I looked she was full.

The warrior and ranger did negligible damage but kept it slowed with Willsapper. I kept giving "immune to stun portion of this effect" from Call of Sky strikes I think.

Druid dots were what did most of the damage Drifting, Winged, Creeping. The fire Dot Devastation of Nature was resisted frequently so I gave up on it for the JB.

During the fight adds would wander in or respawn at the spot and the Merc warrior did a great job of aggro control which let them get ground down by the dots.

Sadly I no longer run combat logs so no parsing available.

Have no idea where he came from, not a clue what brought him to the entrance(only person in zone), but he camped us like a ***** until I had to bring out my upper level to clear his *** out. 99 pally with a rogue merc just whipped his ***, so he's not infallible, but it was a pretty quick fight for a 99.

Don't try to solo it unless poison resist is well over 300

Note what it casts: tetanic blades. Stun for 18 seconds, recast time is instant, and the resist adjust is 300. If you're not wearing resist gear, there's nothing you can do. So what if the beast doesn't hit all that hard? It has as much time as it needs to whittle you down.

Maybe it doesn't recast the stun as soon as it wears every time, and the RNG was just unkind this time. But that's what it did to me.

Well dont know what makes this guy show up for the party but I was there for more than 7 hrs before he hit myself and my warrior.
First thing that got my attention was both of us went blind. Smiley: glasses When our sight came back this crazy guy was pounding us for 700+. Smiley: yikes
Lucky we made it to zone. The rest of the zone was not so lucky. When we zoned back in we had the zone to ourselves!

He CAN spawn on a reset. He apparently has multiple PHers, being specific wandering mobs. Troll the net for more info on them.

I'm wondering if you give the Junk Beast Power Source to a Busted Power Carrier if anything will happen.

The Busted Power Carrier seemed to spawn after it died, but not certain. Just curious to see if anyone has tried to give the Busted Power Carrier any of the JB's drops, particularly the JB's power source.

Trained BY This Guy

The group I was in was just trasined by this guy and he summons you as well and his Blinding Smog is a ***** and he cast is most regularly. People who train lower level's are a-holes in my book.
soloed as 74 ranger

took him down pretty easily, 74 ranger in gnollish chain using a merc, long fight, maybe 12 minutes, took maybe 6 adds during the fight

Spawn Location

I just used highsun to confirm he spawns at about 1319.06, 302.34, -50.37.

If SoE likes nice round numbers when placing mobs, I bet it's 1320, 300, -50, which is just in front of the left entrance to the intersection north of the room directly north of the zone in on the map.

I'm thinking he might be static, but the thing is he was not the newest thing in zone according to track, so it's still a big question mark unless someone knows for sure. Again I got conflicting info some online when I killed him thought he was static, others thought he has a ph. Obviously he roams around the north area of the zone, as others have posted.

We were clearing to let the gnome walk to dragon tonight and this thing just strolled down the path all random like. Took us all over 2min tops to kill him.

Ironicly, we got to the dragon and it was fabled and killed us all within 4 seconds.

73 shammy(1.5), 66 ranger, 66 warrior... we were clearing to him and he wandered on top of us unexpected. Took the nearly resistable slow 4 times to land but after that it was simple. Shammy was already low on mana but we did fine. Took maybe 5 mins.

I boxed him with 75 ranger and 75 cleric. Has about 175k hp. Long fight.

Not too bad

Was PL'ing my shammy bot when this **** jumped me from around the corner. Ran to ent and regrouped and got the help of a 70 cleric and 62 wizard.

Fight wasn't hard once the shammy was able to land slows. Cleric didn't have to bother with heals while slow was active. Long fight though about 20mins.

JB aggroed me when I was at 20%hp or so, and killed my war and my shaman alt.

I went back to kill him, it took me 50min to kill it, with 3 repop of 4mobs to deal with, long long fight :p

Last night I was In POI with a group 46 cleric and the rest of us 50+. Zerker pulled the Junk Beast and all i can say is Zone. Zerker was dead before Cleric could even set off a heal.

Was in PoI with a raid force for Xana, when someone decided to train us with this thing....and about 10 of his friends. Wasn't that hard of a fight, considering there were 40+ of us. The only thing that makes it difficult is the Blind. Probably would have been a lot easier had half the clockworks in the zone not be attacking us with it...lol :p

Edit -> Dropped the Half Spiked Sprocket...rottin' on my Baz mule atm...

Killed this guy last night. When we got to him, we was spawed inside the junkyard. NOT inside the door to the right when going left from the zone in. He was surrounded by several possible adds.

We agroed him early by accident and while he was running he lit off his AE blind. He did not pull anything with him.


70 Druid
70 Paladin
70 Ranger
62 Druid
59 Cleric
58 Shaman
and a few others, the fight took about 5 minutes. He dropped the power source and the sleeves. I beleive this guy will spawn either on a timer or when a certain mob (ph?) is killed. Cannot confirm either.

I went to help out a guild rogue with his epic 1.5 killing weathered clockworks, me lvl 68 shaman and rogue and monk both lvl 69. we had just killed the last weathered, and the rogue went to leave to try and do his epic combine in PoK, when he came back into the weathered room he had Junk beast in tow hehe.

So we had a fun fight during which 3 weathered popped as adds, I cc rooted them off never in any real danger but it was a blast..
