Spawns a lot

His 7 hour spawn timer is a bummer, but it seems to be close to 50 50 whether he spawns or a PH. Spent a lot of time in Kedge Keep doing the hunter achievement and Undertow was the rare I saw the most. If they dropped his re-spawn time to 20 minutes like most everything else in the zone then you could hardly call him rare.

You sir must have some great luck! I have been now camping this silly seahorse for 3 days now killing it before I head to work, after I get off of work and before I go to bed. Just killing it once again to make it 10 kills of a ph. I am sure I will see him in due time. 8 hour spawn time is without a doubt rough. But I will take it over the past two months of losing my sanity in South Karana popping Quillmane. lol
6-8 hour respawn most likely

It's not a hard seven hour spawn. There is variance. He spawned in 6hrs 15 minutes on Mangler on one occasion.
Does he pop in Agent of change instance?

Can anyone confirm if he is popping in the instance's made by "Agent of change" Curious if it is possible to get mage epic piece that way on the progression server.

I just killed his PH and was wondering if he's still on an 8 hour respawn timer in 2016? Anyone know?

I believe his corpse is on a 7 min timer before it rots. I (stupidly) didn't have my mage in the zone. Was camping this guy for hours upon hours and nothing. Well, now I know why.

He spawned this morning, dropped the wand. I ported the mage to KK and it had poofed. It was seriously just a few minutes. So now I get to do this all over again. I guess the easier part is now I will know when he is going to respawn. =P

Location - not sure the direction I took to get there - just took any passage down I could find - found the room for Estrella and cleaned that out - looked on map for a connected room - found Undertow at LOC 256, -290, 78 - he was at the top a vaulted ceiling so look up.

Easy prey for a 70 mag who should have done her epic levels ago...
Lucky Me?

Solo'ed w/ a lvl 55 water pet. Invis'ed all the way to the safe spot near his room. Left pet on guard and invised to Undertow. Dunno if I got lucky or not, but he had only one guard. Maybe he was still groggy or hungover but, pet took out his guard while I healed and Wrath of Elements away. One or two Shock of Spikes later, it was Undertow's turn. Same method, heal and DOT away, w/ a few DD's mixed in. Blazing Wand in bag I left to just see if I could find Phinny up, not to fight. Forget it Estrella and her girls saw through invis. Maybe took a wrong turn?. Gated out in a hurry.

Reading the other posts, I found Undertow wasn't anything like what everybody has posted. Maybe some unlucky soul died spawning him, I checked /who for any help, no one else was in Kedge. Well if I did get lucky I hope everyone else after me gets her/his piece the way I did. 8)

Took him out this morning with a lvl 62 water pet, equipped with Dagger of the Kedge (x2). Once the pirahna and the other trash had been cleared, he was an easy fight. The only buffs I had, besides self-cast, were conviction for me and my pet.

I pulled him from the top of the room with Mala, then let my pet go to work on him. (BTW, your pets at level 61-64 are level 60, and can get procs out of the next level of pet weapons). I used both dots on him to speed up the kill, then finished him with Bolt of Tallon. I never had to heal my pet. He did try to Immobilize me a couple of times, but I had Shield of the Arcane up and resisted easily.

The part that made this easy was Personal Tribute. Gift of the Bass gives you 10 minutes of EB for 10 points, and doesn't show as an effect (can't be dispelled). I've been dumping all sorts of trash loot into this, so I'll have plenty of EB for a 12-hour camp of Phinney (no way I'm paying 75-100k for a MQ of the staff). If you haven't been using this before, I highly recommend it. It can be a lifesaver if your inviz just happens to fail in the mermaid room, as I've had them dispel effects on me in the past.

Camping Undertow for my Mag I found Swirlspine as a PHr at the top of the Dome .... he was DB to 60 Druid. Been pretty easy to keep everything clear with 56 Mag yet very handy to have Healer/Evac'r on stand by. Not to mention Tainted Seahorse popped 5 times and Druid got his piece.

57 Mage hunting solo. Finally cleared piranah and wandering seahorse. Killed attendants. Figured I would pull with Malaise. Did. Next thing I see is "Your skin is rent by massive shards of deadly ice. You have taken 1077 points of damage."

Oh well.. Good thing I had Virtue. Vocarate Air pet kept him occupied and stunned after that, while I chain nuked and healed pet. Luckily, he spent most of has casting time trying Immobilize. Another Ice Comet and I would have been freeze-dried.

Unfortunately, he dropped the Shawl, not the Wand.

BTW, he also dropped Words of Voiding

undertow is an easy solo with a 53 mage. my pet had only MY buffs and i was self buffed aside from kei and virtue. malosi, annul magic, send in vocarate air pet, followed by a few heals and blasts left me untouched with resists between 120 and 150. my pet was close to 100% life and i had between 50 and 60% mana left. the ph is more difficult if it gets off a ch and i haven't found a way to stop it because it resists malosi and doesn't seem to stun. i've killed undertow three times but the freak hasn't let go of my wand. anybody need three squallsurge shawls?

Undertow was an easy kill for my 62 Necro: his placeholder was much, much harder as he kept casting Complete Heal if I couldn't manage to interrupt it. So my Mage finally has their Blazing Wand... epic almost done!

Just cleared out the nearby mobs, sent in the pet to distract him, loaded him up with about 100dps in DoTs (Funeral Pyre, Saryn's Kiss, EBolt), threw in the odd lifetap to heal, and finished him off with Neurotoxin (1270 nuke). With Arch Lich up for mana regen I finished the fight with about 60% of my mana left.

Pet barely took any damage, so I'm sure he'd be cake for a Mage of the same level... getting there would be the hardest part with all those annoying green-con pirahnas in the way.

Oh, and with 138 magic resist and 110-ish cold and fire resist he only landed one spell on me, and only for 225 damage.

Spawn time

8 hour spawn time with a place holder. Place holder spawns instead of Undertow, in the same spot, up near the ceiling.

Kill the place holder and return again in 8 hours to check for Undertow...

#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 06 2004 at 12:47 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I'm sorry but the majority of you guys are MORONS! Especially the one guy talking about Fabled, and we plan to kill him. How the hell does that help inform us?? There's alot of useless SH*T on here. My question is how long a camp is this.
RE: Spawn time ???

He actually seems to be talking about what level the mob is. It's about as useful as your post and doesn't flame anybody.Seems like a majority of what you said is idiotic.If you actually read the posts like a normal human you would see the 8hour spawn time repeated multiple times.

Undertow dies!
# Apr 26 2004 at 4:18 PM Rating: Decent
Here's what I did for my blazing wand:

Parked a 51 druid at zone and logged in every once in a while to check track. Finally I see Undertow as 2nd on list.

I had been to his spawn point once or twice to kill PHer and I knew that Estrella would be blocking my way and killing her runs the risk of adds a-plenty. So I recruit the help of a 65 BST and we invis to the bottom of the tunnel and get pets out in the room next to the big flower pot room next to estrellas big chamber. We kill all the mermaids and Estrella with ease and swim across to the pillar room just outside Undertows room.

Then we kill all the green pirhanas that add like crazy from the ceiliing of the pillar room and then I single pull the 2 seahorses in Undertows funnel with Malosini.

Swim up, target Undertow, pull down to bottom of room and pets begin to pound while I cast a couple seeking flames of seukor.

Bam, dead, blazing wand drops, no more kedge keep for me!!!
(Got my water staff last week when a wizard needed a hand with phinny for her staff but mine dropped instead)

Good luck to all you mages 8)

If you go the tunnel that leads to Estrella I found out that if you stick real close to ceiling and swim up and over she will not agro to you! I did this with a friend of mine and he wasn't seen either so it works.
