a large undead gnoll  

a rare creature

Uploaded July 24th, 2007

Spawns on the first floor of the Tower of Frozen Shadows. He is a chain spawn from a random 1st floor mob. Drops the key to the second floor. Average spawn is about 2-3 clearing of the first floor, so 1/40 or so.

Spawned for me from one of the Shadowbones in the pit, so kill everything on the floor, not just the Gnolls.
rare creature con tag might indicate trigger mob

While hunting for keys, I noticed that every trash mob that spawned a key mob had the "a rare creature" tag in its con message, as did the resulting key mob (worked on floors 1, 2 and 3). I'm guessing this trick only works on the key mobs that spawn from random trash, but I haven't gotten high enough in the tower to verify anything else. If looking for key mobs on floors 1-3, you may wanna give the floor a once-over to see if any of the trash mobs con as rare before clearing, might save a little time. :D

I didnt realize that 3!!!! different things come out. ALL were RED to me. We had a group of a 29 Enchanter, 28 Rogue, 24 Wizzard, 28 Cleric merc, and 24 Warrior merc. We all ran out of mana and came close to dieing. BE CAREFUL!!
Tag as Undead

This guy should be tagged as Undead instead of monster. My mid-lvl paladin was able to cast Expulse Undead and hit for the full 106 dmg.

I don't know if it was coincidence or not, but be aware that he may pop right on top of you! I was taking down a shadowbone near the entrance, and when it went down, this guy popped right at that spot. He will do some damage if you're not prepared and low on health.

That was no coincidence he spawned on top of you.
If you keep killing the "a shadow beast" you will eventually kill
the PH for it, in which he spawns in his place as soon you kill him.
I just kept turning right from entrance and another immediate right
down those halls and pulling them from there. It can take a long
time or a short time, the ph is random. But when you get impatient,
always remember ......"EVER" quest (smile).
Many times you will see a named beast spawn. If you notice he hasn't
spawned in reasonable time, the PH is close by. (smirk)
Took me 4 hours to get him to spawn this last time. (no smile).

This is a nasty pull if your group is level 30ish. Make sure all mobs in the pit room are down.

He also dropped a velium short sword.

As for the keys - it took about an hour to get three of them. Be sure you have AoE, Root, and Nukes for clearing the floor.
max hit
