Spawn Location
# Apr 26 2006 at 1:47 PM Rating: Decent
Confirmed Spawn Location on this guy is +1335,-1062 Between Steamfont and Greater Faydark ZL...He is very fast and stops at various places on the map.

He has more then 1 spawn location but 3 of 5 spawns were in that very spot.

Have been killing the 3 spawn Brownie Scouts near center of map. And Thistle Underbrush seems to pop a lot when you only kill these.

If killing Brownies is the trigger for spawning Thistle Underbrush, park yourself at +32.+31. They all seem to spawn there. Y discovered this by accident. After killing one at that location, I waited there and found myself getting attacked every few minutes by spawning brownies.
PH?? maybe

I spent a day haning out in Lower Fay waiting for these guys to pop and none ever did. Day two I decided to see if I could find a placeholder for them. I started killing trash mobs (skeletons, wasps, giant spiders, etc.) and sure enough I got Thistle to spawn. I did this for about an hour and got 6 Thislte Underbrush to spawn but 0 Bracken Underbrush. Seems that Thistle is on the lower level mobs spawn table, but Bracken isn't.

Careful, some of the lower level mobs have factions associated with them. Faire, Pixies, Fae Drakes, come to mind.

OHH so this guys respawn time is compeletely random? Was afraid he never spawned anymore. I like thw powders, the funny toys. When the potion belt first came out these were bugged for about 2days, they had infinite charges...
Mistletoe Powder

I came to this page when looking up the Pouch of Mistletoe Powder. It is used in the HIE Journeyman Moonglade armor (DoN). It seems very odd to me that this item only drops from 2 named mobs (unless this was changed with the release of DoN). I don't suppose many HIE smiths are going to even bother with those recipes if the materials needed are difficult to obtain. (It's not very good armor in the first place.)

The expert level moonglade armor requires Fungus Sap which is a common drop in the Gunthak tunnels and can usually be found on the Gunthak merchants.

Just my 2cp worth.

I have been chasing Thistle Underbrush for quite a while collecting all of the Mistletoe Powder for a full suit od DoN Wood Elf Journeyman chain. Some of the info on Thistle is either old or incorrect.

Notes on hunting Thistle Underbrush:

1. His spawn time is random and can be anytime during the day. Older posts suggest that he only spawns at night. This is incorrect as I have killed him at 1 AM game time and had him, respawn a few minutes later. I have also gone a full game day without having him spawn.

2. He can respawn very fast. One respawn I timed was less than 90 seconds after I killed him. His old corpse had not even decayed.

3. Thistle can spawn anywhere in the zone and then he runs all over the zone stopping at various points.

4. I have not found a trigger to get him to spawn, so I sit back and kill brownie scouts and other things and check tracking after each kill.

5. He runs at SoW speed. With SoW, I have kept pace and possibly even gained on him.

6. You need track to find him. I sit approx in the middle of the zone (near Leaf Dao) where I can track the shadowed men, brownie merchants, and wayfarers simultaneously.

7. Watch the adds. Brownie Scouts, Equestriell, Shadowed Men, and others will make quick work of anybody under L35.

8. When killing Thistle, keep him snared or rooted to avoid a steeple chase. Once acquired, I usually root, snare, kill.

Hope that helps those who are seeking to craft their DoN journeyman armor.

First post so could not figure out the edit capability...

a. Older posts say he only spawns during the DAY (not night). He can spawn at any time.

why is this still here ?

i was going to the one of the Ldon camps and got aggroed on by this little guy. So I wiped the floor with him as my 55 war, and then I sent a ooc out in the zone for anyone wanting to loot it and got no response. Once I waited long enough I looted him and looked up on our friend Allah to see what I might of got for an alt. And then I found out his quest item is from the original game (or as close as you can get). Is it just me or should some of the older items that are just above crap be revamped or dare I say removed from the game. I know it's a radical idea but it's time to get some of the stuff that gives you a nearly useless reward for the shere amount of trouble you go through to get them, out of the game. But thats just my 2cents

Most of these items aren't crap, they just aren't as good as they used to to the lvl they were originally intended for. They are still useful, just to a lower lvl range. Take BABS for example. This used to be THE SWORD to have. It is still a good weapon, just now it is used at lvl ranges 10 to maybe 30, instead of the high end game. With all the twinking and double boxing out there today, these lower lvls can get to these things, too.

# Jul 04 2004 at 8:18 PM Rating: Decent
So, they're not crap, and we're all defending the blatant twinking that's going on as SOE releases money-grab after, er, i mean, expansion after expansion.

Sounds good.

Oh yes, and lete a noob park their character at the aqua goblin camps for unlimited cash sources to buy these outdated peices of junk. That makes it better.

Just took him down with my 38 ranger. Tracked him to the north side of the zone, near the middle.

He ran just faster than SoW.
He casts a damage shield as well as what looks to be firefist
The highest he hit me for was 37.
He casts Ignite, Careless Lightning, Grasping roots and Cancel Magic.
He respawned soon after I had killed him.
No messages about faction hits, but brownies are now threatening.

Oh he dropped the rune of ivy, braided ivy cords, brownie parts and a Topaz.

I used to hunt this annoying lil' fella back in my 'youth', but then moved on. Reciently I had to come back for the Tainted/Corrupted Brownie and I noticed a few things.
1.) Brownie Scouts arn't as spell happy as they once were.
2.) Thistle doesn't spawn as frequently.

I also been farming the village for chocolate (parts) and think that Thistle is much slower in respawn.

Thistle info
# Dec 30 2002 at 2:03 AM Rating: Default
He spawns over near the Pixie Tower. Somewhere between there and the Brownie outpost. I have been hunting him down while farming brownie parts from the town. Just today I killed him FIVE times in a row. I would kill scouts between pops at the town, so I think this makes him pop. He is incredibly fast, maybe a little faster than SoW. Only has about 900hp. He does cast very quickly and can make short work of anyone not prepared up to the mid 30's. He Drops a Rune of Ivy every time. Then it will rotate between the Braided Ivy Chords or the Bag of dust, which has 2 charges of charm animal. He usually drops brownie parts also.

In my sequence of killing him 5 times, he dropped the dust the first 3 times and the chords the last two.

He does not despawn, but you only have 5-10 minutes before his roaming takes him by the Ranger outpost and they make short work of him.

I'm beginning to wonder if he isn't on some sort of despawn timer.I tracked for him for about 10 mins,I find and kill him,he respawns relatively quick.I killed him 4 more times back to back when I finally ran out of mana.I medded for about 5 mins and then tracked for him for 2 and a half more hours real time with not trace.Gonna try to Root,Dot,back off and med to conserve mana and see if I can go more than 5 time straight.If this works it could be a goldmine!!!!

just killed Thistle just because he was up, and instead of brownie parts, I got a brownie leg. Any clues if it is for a new quest?

This is because of the newbie quests in GFay and Steamfont. They added lowbie brownies to those zones that drops pieces for newbie armour quests. Looks like all the old, higher-level brownies have the same drop tables.

Well i can confirm that she pops about every 10-20 min and runs in a random pattern over most of Gfay, another thing is that shes a druid and a dman fast one, had a hared time tracking and following with G wolf form..

a few tips: if you can get buffed with fire and magic resists its all she uses, sh dose actually hit hard, but try and snare or root her cause she can run real fast, best place to find her is near the bandits sisters or the faires, she spot at certin points every so often so ill try and get the locs whil im camping her _g-Luck

Just spent last 3 days campin Thistle. He pops night and day, and at times within 5 minutes of me killin him. Have found him to pop on track most often near the orc camp furthest east in zone (near shadow men).

Yes, he pops at night, at least he does on Erollisi Marr server. Waiting with a friend for the necro to show up, had the right set up and the right time for that (12:AM Norrathian tim), when who should come shooting down the hill than ole Thistle himself. Hung around the top step of the obelist and made a nuisance of himself until my bud, 42 druid Human, says "Get 'im". So we did. Lost the necro, maybe, because of him. She killed and looted him, got the braids, powder, brains AND the rune of ivy. LOL! And I'm the RANGER! No worries, no harm, no foul. He's there and the next I am, he's mine! )
