follow this and you find your way easy to him.
Maybe someone did before but i dont want to read all posts.

By the way i came back in game and he was up and this was about 30m or so before 12 hours
so i guess the Saania (respawn confussion) make some sense.
Fight smarter not harder.

Just killed him 3 times for Rogue and Bard epics. Used a bot team of level 55; War, Beast, Wiz, Rogue, Bard and Cleric Merc.

He dispells, so be ready to refresh your Enduring Breath spell during battle.

He was up at zone in. Cleared the annoying Complete Heal seahorses. Pulled Phini to top of room and killed without issue, but no needed drops.
Moved to bottom of room and waited for Harbinger, about 20 minutes. Re-cleared the seahorses while waiting. Hailed Harbinger with Rogue / killed Phini again and looted Robe.
Waited another 20 minutes, re-re-cleared seahorses, Harbinger spawned, Hailed with Bard / killed Phini for the 3rd time and looted backbone. Ported out. Easy.

Faction hit for killing

At least on the Test Server, I have seen on more than one occasion, that 2 Phinigel Autroposes were up at a time. Also after killing them one time, another spawned in a very short time. I am not sure if this is happening on regular servers, or only test. And I am not sure what is causing this aberrant behavior.

This zone can be tricky to get around. I only came back less than 2 years ago after a 7 year hiatus. I hadn't had a reason to head to Kedge, until recently. Wizzy epic 1.0. I thought I would remember how to get to Phini's room, however 9 or 10 years ago was the last time I had been there, so my memory was locking a bit. Got most of the way there, then forgot about the secret passage. So I googled how to get there, and thanks to this lovely person who made this simple and easy-to-follow video (link above), I quickly made my way to Phinigel.

He was up! However, he didn't drop what I needed. Thankfully, Zam had the update that there is a work-around for getting the piece needed. So, please check out a harbringer of the seas and I'll post info there on what to do. :) GL!
Timing seems the same

Checked zone at least 6 times in the past 2 weeks. Never saw him up. I decided to camp him today. He spawned. I clicked my druid's Storm Strike aa. Did a crit of just over 25k which was weak since it normally crits on other mobs for over 45k but it was enough to kill phinny in one shot. All he dropped was a "Rune of Ap'Sagor" "Trident of the Seven Seas" and "Fusible Coral Ore". He didn't drop epic anything. Was it cause i killed him too soon after he spawned and he didn't have time to do anything? Waited about 7 hours and 15 minutes for him to spawn. Sheesh. What a let down. EDIT: Seemed to spawn 12 and a half hours later. This time i waited at least a full minute before i killed him. This time it dropped "Fusible Coral Ore" , "Rod of Malisement" and "Blue Crystal Staff".

I logged on a bit later then i guess i should have. I didn't think he would spawn for at least 12 hours. Looks like i was wrong. I was reading through some of the posts on the items that he drops and saw some good advice that said to be at spawn an hour and 15 minutes before the 12 hour deadline. Saw some other posts that also said he can spawn before the 12 hours.. So it looks like i missed Phinny. Some one must have checked on him some time before i even got on and killed him. I expected to see him up by 5:30pm est and its past 6:30pm est. Did an /up and the zone has been up almost as long as the server itself so it didn't crash.

3rd kill: 2 "Rod of Malisement" 1 "Wand of Mana Tapping" 1 "Fusible Coral Ore" wtf. 2 out of 3 kills and not a single epic drop. I didn't loot any of it.

4th kill: 1 "Rod of Malisement" 1 "Wand of Mana Tapping" 1 "Fusible Coral Ore" 3 out 4 kills and no epic drops. Kinda silly. Also surprised to see that he was up when i got there. It wasn't a planned trip. He must have been up for a few hours. This time i looted everything. I doubt that matters but i can't help but notice everytime i leave everything on corpse it keeps on popping on every kill after.

5th kill: 1 "Rod of Malisement" 1 "Trident of the Seven Seas" 1 "Fusible Coral Ore" 1 "Kedge Backbone" 1 "Black Sapphire" 1 "Crystallized Sulfur". Looted it all. Bard got the Kedge Backbone. Maybe one of these kills he can drop more then one epic item. That would be great.

6th kill: 1 "Wand of Mana Tapping" 1 "Trident of the Seven Seas" 1 "Fusible Coral Ore" 1 "Blue Crystal Staff" Looted with another wizard. 1 "Nilitim's Grimoire Pg. 416" 1 "Crystallized Sulfur" So that makes 3 out of 6 kills with epic loot. Im sure its just a coincidence that he dropped epic stuff twice in a row for me after i had looted all the items from the previous corpses. This time i left everything except the Blue Crystal Staff. Will be interesting to see if he drops any epic stuff next kill. Though i am most likely just wrong when it comes to that.

7th kill: 1 "Wand of Mana Tapping: 1 "Trident of the Seven Seas" 1 "Fusible Coral Ore" 1 "Crystallized Sulfur" 1 "Robe of the Kedge". I missed a few spawns. It is much easier to get the Robe of the Kedge in Kithicor killing either Advisor C'zatl or Coercer Q'ioul.

8th kill: 1 "Rod of Malisement" 1 "Fusible Coral Ore" 1 "Robe of the Kedge" 1 "Crystallized Sulfur" 1 "Binding Powder". I missed a few spawns again. Looted everything again. I have a feeling if i get to the next one before anyone else ill see other epic drops. I could be wrong though.

9th kill: 1 "Rod of Malisement" 1 "Fusible Coral Ore" 1 "Trident of the Seven Seas" 1 "Blue Crystal Staff" 1 "Staff of Elemental Mastery: Water" 1 "Binding Powder" 1 "Crystallized Sulfur" I had a strong feeling it was about time to see either the bard, mage or wizard epic drop. Was very happy to get both the mage and wizard drop. Looted everything from corpse again.

10th kill: 2 "Rod of Malisement" 1 "Fusible Coral Ore" 1 "Kedge Backbone" 1 "Words of Crippling Force". Looted all.

11th kill: 2 "Wand of Mana Tapping" 1 "Fusible Coral Ore" 1 "Robe of the Kedge" 1 "Blue Crystal Staff" 1 "Fire Emerald Ring" 1 "Breath of Ro". Looted all. This will have to be my last Phinigel kill. I want one more mage epic drop but i don't want to see any epic stuff rot. I already have all the other epic stuff i need. None of the other posters bothered to mention if things rotted or not. Some of them mention that they were only after one epic drop in 10 or 20+ kills. Good luck anyone trying to complete 1.0's. It takes a lot of patience and i hope you have better luck then i did.

Greetings, I used the video listed in the post below and it was spot on!! TY for the video.

I camped Phinny for 7 days after getting the spawn time figured out, before I got the drop for the Mage epic. I play on Erollisi Marr/The Nameless.

7:11pm PDT when I broke into the spawn cycle (9/26/12)
7:00am PDT (9/27)
5:45a (9/28)
5:54a (9/29)
6:00a (9/30)
5:25a (10/1)
5:00a (10/2)
??? - Lost cycle 910/3)
??? (10/4)
3:07p - dropped the mage epic piece. He was wielding it.

I notice that the time was moving back around 11hrs 30min. so I believe the spawn timer is 12 hours +/- 60min since there were a few times he did not hit the 11:30 hrs timing.

Hope this helps those on EM/Nameless server in figuring his times.

Good Luck

First attempt at getting my Mage Epic piece today. Waited 8 hours today for this bad boy to show up. Didn't keep a constant camp, just popped back now and again - but usually just killed a couple of sea horses for fun.

Anyway, went back at 8.40pm, and there he was, swimming around. Cleared two of the swirlspine seahorses, and made my way carefully down, so as not to aggro the 2 remaining horses or Phinny. Waited until Phinny swam to the side of the star that I'd cleared the seahorses from, and it was game on. Pretty simple, using single target Firebolt of Tallon x 8. Cleric merc healed. Pet did a bit of tanking. No aggro from any other mobs, and one minute later - dead Phinny.

Clicked on the corpse and there it was!!! My Staff of Elemental Mastery: Water! I couldn't believe my eyes, after reading a lot of the other horror stories of 25 kills with no success, etc. Phinny dropped backbone and coral too.

One very happy Mage on AB tonight!!!

Jemisini's directions to Phinny from 2006 worked great for me today:

How to GET THERE ----- It took me over two hours to find him, cuz of one secret door. Here are the directions.

From the ENTRANCE, go out into the first room. Go Down, facing South. Click on the grate. Go into the room, and go down again, still facing south. Do the same thing in the next room you hit. When you get to the bottom (you will have gone down a tunnel twice), turn EAST and head through the door. There's a shark in the next room --- head straight past the shark. Enter the grate on the bottom at the end of the tunnel. You can't miss it; all tunnels lead to the same place.

Go up the looong tunnel and you'll see 4 grates on all sides. Doesn't matter which you go through; All open, and all are in the same room. There's only one door in the room --- It has two grates, meaning you have to click on one grate, and when it opens, click on another to open the second. They are on top of one another.

SECRET TUNNEL to Phinny: Past the two grates, you'll end up in a room with two "blocks" in it. There are a lot of fish in there. The blocks look like plantholders; They're about nine feet tall, and have little plants on the top. It looks like they're part of the walls but if you click on the one to the right of the door you're entering the room from, it will move, revealing a secret tunnel. Go through the tunnel to Phinny's room. It's safe to uninvis/buff/etc anywhere on top of the little star cut-out in the floor, but I wouldn't get any closer than I have to.

Note that my directions may not be perfect; I typed it from memory. It's pretty straightforward though, I think. Good luck!
Lucky! :)

I brought my level 80 druid to this mob to get the backbone for my level 60 bard's epic. I sneaked them both to the proper room using Nelyan's directions as listed below---they take you right there! I recall killing this mob with guild 10 years ago, so knew it was a confusing pain in the *** and that the swirlspines were highly dangerous. They complete heal repeatedly and can sometimes come in pairs---but, they only have so much mana and are an easy kill once they go out. The first attempt was disappointing with PA dropping the coral of course, some sulphur and the wand of mana tapping. However, knowing he'd be up again in 12 hours and reading here that he dropped a piece for the mage epic, I moved my level 53 mage to the same room, just in case! I was settling in for a long stay with multiple attempts---having read here some of the posts and how long some have waited. Yesterday morning, my second attempt, I logged the druid in and took care of the swirlspines to give me an opportunity to look down into the star cutout and quickly noticed AP was holding what looked like the water crystal staff in his hand---so was hopeful this was at least the mage epic piece! I cast a dot and got quickly summoned, swam back out and AP followed to the top and the rim where everyone was parked. It was a very easy kill, just be aware that AP will remove most of your buffs. Popping him open, I found to my amazement that he did indeed have the Mage epic in hand but also had the backbone for the Bard epic as well! Knowing that this was the last piece for the bard I quickly logged him in for the loot, then wasted no time to log the mage in. She came in with only 15 seconds left on the mob----just enough time to quickly get her own piece. Happy Bard, Happy Mage, and happy me because I don't have to deal with this particular zone again for hopefully another 10 years!

ITs one thing to make people kill a npc that is on a long respawn for a quest but for the love of all that is right every time he dies he should have the loot you need! I am very close to just saying F-it on the mage epic.

4 kills now and hasn't had the mage epic.

Edited, Jul 23rd 2011 1:41pm by fronglo

Make that 11 f^%&ing kills and no mage epic. Every single time he has had at least one (sometimes 2) shaman rods and either the kedge robe or enchanter wand.

This is just ridiculous!

The Blue Crystal Staff seems to drop about 20%ish of the time I've killed Phinny and I've been killing him once or twice a day for almost a month now trying to get the Kedge Backbone for Bard epic, in 30ish kills or so he has yet to drop it. I'd venture to say the Blue Crystal Staff is just uncommon, not as rare as people believe.
