Is there a trick?

Almost 9 hours, 2min 18sec respawn on the PH, and still nothing. I absolutely despise this whole quest line, and yet, the breath weapon was the entire reason I made the toon. More than 9 hours of no xp, and no fun, waiting on a spawn that never came. I just want to strangle whoever programmed this mess.

Went there, to the NW of the zone (Griffin Valley), and he was up. LOC 1200/1900 seems about right.

Good luck!
Still a noob. :-P

Well it has been nine Place Holder spawns and counting. A guy came by and asked if I was camping it and I told him yeah seen 6 spawns. He wished e luck and said he would try tomorrow. and that he was camping him for 3. At this point I am camping one or two more spawns then going to give it a break. So sick of it, but did make a level out of it 54 baby necro.

This is also a quest mob for the Drakkin 'Breath of Venesh #9' quest. Took several hours for Refugiu to spawn for me, but here's a tip. The Place Holder is a Rotwood Strangler like the comments below have said. After killing the PH it always took exactly 1hr and 5mins from the time killed for either another PH to spawn, or if your lucky, Refugiu.

Sat on mob spawn point, killed PH then about 20 mins l8r killed Refugiu for one my toons, been sitting for 95+ mins so I don't think there is an adsact timer on this guy, seems a little random

I used sneak/hide thru the giants, and as I cleared the long canyon, into the Griffin/Spider area, Refugiu was standing at the bottom between 2 trees. Fired an arrow to lead him back up the hill and killed him with a T1Journy tank merc. He conned Dark Blue at 51.
The person who says it can’t be done should not interrupt the person doing it.
This is stupid.

This quest is ridiculous and the respawn timer is idiotic. Yet another terribly-planned quest. Two weeks already without a sighting, I'm about to freak out on some innocent pixels. Seriously, SOE? Come on.

The mob's respawn may have changed from those listed previously. I have been camping this mob and his PH (whih is still "a rotwood strangler") for a few hours now, and the respawn on him is now 80 minutes exactly. The spawn point is in the middle of the griffon/spider area (just east of the small mesa with griffons and harpies). Refugiu and his PH are the only tree NPCs that spawn in this area so it is impossible to miss them.

loc 1200, 1900 low area with rotwood strangler... looked this Ph had a dark fog around it and some small trees. mesa widows spawn in area and cast a Slowing Dot that is nasty at lvl 40

This information listed above is correct. Bring a snickers the spawn time is about 80-90 mins

Hi, I've been trying to get this guy to spawn for the past several nights for my rogue, This is insane, I even got the Ionea's wing for level 55 breath before this.. and nestor's head for level 50.
My rogue is only 53 and doesn't even need Ionea's wing yet. And He can't seem to get this guy's branch for the level 45 breath :/ Tooooooo long of a respawn and TOOOO RARE. SOE needs to get their thumbs out their a**es and make this dude spawn more, or faster! This is insane to have to waste this much time on a breath mob! F*ck new races and quests. They just like making things too hard and time consuming.

It's really great seeing 4 PH's in a 6.5 hour period. WAY TO F*KING GO SONY!

I've been through this before on my monk, back in the days.. YEAH you remember.. When RASTER of GUK NEVER EVER F(KING SPAWNED EVER EVER EVER EVER... AND WE HAD TO PETITION FOR 2 YEARS to get SONY to UP THE F*CKING SPAWN RATE! GOD I HATE THIS.


Let's get lost, I know the way.. I've been there before.. ;)

He doesn't need to take his medicine...

This is insanity. This is literally what drove me away from EQ the first time. I haven't run into any retarted quests like this since my return...until now.

18 chances per 24hours? Are you serious?

Which is totally rediculous! There's no reason he should have such a broken respawn timer, especially with only one PH. He doesn't even drop anything that good besides the quest item. I think people should petition the crap out of SOE until they change it.

Had a bit of trouble finding this myself. So here is some more specific information.

Refugiu was already up when I found the spot, it spawned in the northern part of the griffon valley near +1200, +1900. As soon as you come down the pass to the griffon valley it was in the area straight out from the pass.

Refugiu is one of the walking tree models, not a stump model.

His PH has a real bad DS, 200 damage for me at lvl 56. Insane quest, being 11 lvls higher. But hey it's SOE so what to expect.
PITA mob
# Oct 25 2006 at 11:00 AM Rating: Decent
Took down Refugiu with 48 War and 48 Cleric. Incidently, he conned white to us both. Rotwood strangler is PH for him. Hits for average 130. Has a nasty 330 DD, stun proc. At one point, he "quaded" the War with it.

bring back a branch from a wayward nature spirit. was guessing a tree.

watch out for the skelys over in griffen valley. some were DB to lvl 70.

and thanks for the PH.

i know this guy is for the 9th lvl dragon breath trying to find him right now!!!
Who what where?
# Sep 30 2006 at 9:57 AM Rating: Decent
This is a large zone, and I've never seen this fellow up. Most people aren't hunting here and so rare named are very very rare. Can anyone give me a clue as to where this guy pops? What type of mob should I be killing to get him to pop?

Who what where?
# Oct 02 2006 at 8:35 PM Rating: Decent
he pops near the Griffon valley area, his placeholder is a rotwood strangler.
Who what where?
# Oct 06 2006 at 11:53 AM Rating: Decent
It must have a super long respawn time. I figured that it was that lonely tree I saw roaming there, but after I killed it, I killed everything around it too, and those respawned twice and never saw another tree =\.
Who what where?
# Oct 08 2006 at 5:37 PM Rating: Decent
It has a respawn time of about 76 minutes.
