I was camping Rockstorm all of last week. I can now confirm that he spawns west of the crag pit where there are about 7-8 mobs when you are facing north towards one of the pyramids. He also spawns east of the crag pit on top of the half-plateau. Three mobs spawn here, usually 2 scorpions + a beetle or dervish. Good luck on getting the drop. He finally dropped the augment on the 5th or 6th kill.

Snared and rooted him.
He stayed rooted the whole time I dotted him

Nerfed?

Has he been nerfed?

I've had the PHs camped for over 24hrs and he's only spawned twice. I've gone 20+ PH cycles and no spawn. Is he only spawning once per day now?

This is frustrating :/

I killed him 4 times this morning. He spawned randomly from the various trash mobs I was killing looking for scorpions. I believe he's in the spawn pool with scorpions, dervishes and rhinoback beetles.
2 box

I just killed him last night and he was roaming much more east of the Ravager hole, not near the suggested pyramid, actually. I'm not sure if he wandered far from his spawn point.

I kited him near the broken wall road.

He does not summon but he DOES warp on top of you, particularly if there is an elevation change. He got stuck on pathing going over hills so get him onto flat ground.

good advice

I just followed the advice here to get him to spawn. I went to the east side of the Ravager hole up on that little plateau. There are three spawns there of scorpion, beetle, or derv. Just killed those and one of the same type just north of there which roamed near the pyramid.

After clearing about 5 mobs I got the Rockstorm to spawn on the 2nd repop. He dropped the aug, which I wasnt after, the first time and the earring, which I wanted, on the second pop. Each of the two times I got him to spawn took about one or two repops only.

Nothing summoned. Nothing cast spells. Nice flat area to kite with no adds and no obstructions for bard songs LOS issues. Amazingly simple kite.

The aug?

Took 7 kills to get the aug, but it does drop it. Confirmed 4/7/07

Spawn rate is very sporadic--I've had two within the same 5 ph cycle, and then I've gone for 7 hours before seeing one.

I too can confirm his spawn point (at least 1). I clear the 3 wandering mobs on the plateau above the "A Craig Ravager" who spawns in the hole directly below. These 3 roamers can be scorps, dervish, or beetles. After killing those, I kill the 2 romarers that spawn down by the nearest pyramid with the Efreeti, and then kill the efreeti until respawn, which is 25 minutes. I've done this about 10 times for about 2 hours at a time and had Rockstorm spawn 3 times, each time on the first plateau. So he's not super rare, but surely not anything like the names outside in Thalassius. Each time he has dropped the earring. Still does not summon as of this date, I can't think of any other names that you can kite out in the open like this that do not summon, let's hope it stays that way.

I followed Kifael's advice and went to the pyramid he mentioned. To the East/SouthEast of the pyramid is a slight plateau with three random mobs wandering around on it. (Scorpions, beetles, whirling dervishes). The SouthEast corner of the pyramid has a wandering efreeti and two random mobs - again, scorpions, beetles, whirling dervishes. I spent all morning keeping all of the random mobs clear, and killing efreetis while waiting on respawns.

After five and a half hours, one of the two random mobs by the corner of the pyramid spawned as Rockstorm, just as it did for Kifael. One (or perhaps both) of them is the PH, though I cannot say for sure if he spawns anywhere else. Good luck :)

Also can now confirm that he spawns from at least one of the three wandering mobs on the nearby kiting spot I mentioned.

Anyone know what you have to kill to get this guy to spawn?

Rockstorm spawned in the stead of a large scorpion that I was hunting, on the north side of the eastern-most pyramid in the north half of the zone.
