#1 - Pulled everything in the cave at once
#2 - Waited for Respawns
#3 - He was up, so I killed him
#4 - Looted the Idol and Left

He hit me one time for 403, I think I killed him before he could hit me again.
I'm a lvl 76 BL (1100 AA's, 2900 AC)

Have spent too many hours here to count, I haven't seen him at all spent 16 hrs at camp the first day I started looking for him. About 8 hrs each day on several other days and have been here so far 5 hrs today. Can anyone confirm if they have seen him this year on Xegony Server? Probably have put about 80 hrs into camping him.

There's gotta be something wrong with him this year. He's spawning once every 9 hours now. Is this normal or just the luck of the draw?

From the posts below and my own 14 hour crusade to spawn him I can attest that he is a RARE mob. The placeholder respawns quickly but the chance to spawn as fabled is pitifully low.

Dropped the following today:

Fastened Links (x2)
Hope Sapphire
Golden Mushrooms
Mark of Fortune
Snake Scale Sceptre
Iron Tipped Wand
Fabled Fire Idol (w00t!)

Spawn location for me: -1865, 63
This really is rare!!!

I know fabled is almost over, but if your thinking of camping this, you need to start ASAP!!! I have been camping it in the east room of the leech caves, just like everyone else said.

I have camped for 13 hours strait now, and not a single spawn. It also sucks when you have to fight PvP for it (im from Zek).

Good luck to anyone that camps it. I will edit my post if i ever get this to spawn =)

EDIT: LOL, and 10 mins after i posted this it spawns and drops it =).

and I have confirmed it spawns in the east tunnel

you're quite stupid and clueless. almost everything is lootable on FV. Even some epic items. and as for xp potions, it's quite simple. roll a lvl 1. do combine/turn in, camp, reroll rinse repeat. Im at 373 potions and trying to get to 400.

gave up on fabled fire idol camp, just too long vs. the reward. 8 idols, probably averaged 4 1/2 hours per. More profitable to get fabled lucid shard. I would camp it, have alt loot, gate to bazaar, sell it for 75k and come back to loot the next one.

I've spent about 12 hours total on this camp so far, 5 hours on saturday, and 7 hours on sunday. If you're trying for the aug, be prepared to wait quite awhile. Also, this seems pretty much perma-camped on Drinal server, people were popping in and out all the time, asking if I was camping it. My advise is if you get the camp, don't give it up till you have the aug or you can't stay awake any longer, because who knows when you may be able to get it again.

Update: 3 more hours on monday, and it finally spawned, so about 15 hours total at the camp. I went from pretty much max kos to most seru factions to max ally to all, except for hand legionaires. The last 4 or 5 hours of the thought leech slaughter didn't even have the benefit of faction increases, because they could go no higher. Not sure if I want to go through this again for an alt, yuck.

Also, I can confirm that it spawned in the east room of the thought leech caves. It was the leech closest to the west wall, right next to another leech, in front of a rock stuck in the wall. Whether it always spawns there or not, I don't know, but that is where it spawned for me.

Update part deux: I decided to bite the bullet and get one for an alt too. It was very reasonable this time, 2 hours of camping to get it to spawn. The next person in line(yes, I said line, this camp is hot right now) got it to spawn in two spawn cycles after that. Holy crap, I was glad for them, but very irritated that my first one took so long. Like a previous poster said, absolutely, completely random. You could be there for 20 minutes, or 20 hours.

I've gotten 8 of the augs. no one ever camps it on the server, the zone is always empty. It's just a matter of patience of this camp. it always spawns in the eastermost cavve. bring a book. The last time i got the aug, i came into zone (empty as always) and fabled was already up. sweet.

Each one (pre nerf) sold for 200k. even with 25 ac, they sell for 100k.

Fabled lucid augs sell for 60k. l've farmed 20 +

Fabled rockhopper augs sell for 60k as well. probably 10+

and ceremonial xp potions, i have 225 atm. those will sell for 100k in 4-5months.

Fabled Shissar rings, i've farmed 10 or so at 100k each.

Sony has made me quite rich. thank you for luclin fableds. truly a wonderful thing.

I have killed this guy with ppl 5-6 times now. Every time before this, he had popped off the identical spawn, in the East room. Just now, he spawned, in the same room, but in the spawn point closest to the wall (to the left of the usual PH if looking NW), instead of the other spawn nearby. 1st time ever seeing this happen.
This mob is a rare spawn.

I got my former baby the Fabled Fire Idol after only about two hours of clearing the thought leech caves. Then I continued camping it for my main, and cleared the caves for hours and hours. No Fabled pops anywhere for the main. The next day I saw that he popped in a particular spot (from first room in the cave, take the left tunnel to the next room, and he pops behind a rock with another mob almost within hand holding distance.) The people there had him pop three times out of four. I was there for a few more hours, and no pop for me. The third day, I was there for about 14 hours, and no pop. I was about to go to bed, and decided to try something different. I camped, and came right back. Two more pop cycles later, the named popped. I don't know if this was coincidental, or somehow my presence in the cave broke the mobs pop cycle, but camping out and returning may have beneficial. Over all, two augs in about twenty four hours of camping. The repop time in the leech cave is about 12 minutes. If I killed the place holder instantly on spawning, in twentyfour hours of camping this mob, I cleared the place holder about 120 times, and had a named pop rate of about 0.02 %. Argh! After I left, two other peeps took over the camp, and they had the named pop an additional two times out of the three times they were there for the spawning. Double Argh!

The only additional marginally beneficial effect was the boost to the Seru factions from killing thought leeches. By the time I was done, I was best buddies with all of the Seru factions for which there was a boost. Now I can go to Sactus Seru and work on the Sigil Earring of Veracity quest with less problems from the locals.

i just got this aug at 7:15 pm estern on drinal. and the one thing i noticed is it is a 35 ac 35 hp/mana 15 vs fire with a aug 7 slot on it. Now i dont know much but i would say any problems trying ta fit this aug inta something comes from it having a aug slot on it.

I popped into zone with my ranger to see if camp was held. Of course it was so I asked how long he was planning on staying. Standard reply "until I get the augment", so I buff him up and wished him luck. (I didn't have to work in the am ) I went to bed, come back to camp in the morning and behold the same guy is there....All night. I asked him how long he was there? He said "10.5 hours". I said wow! He said "the camp is yours," and he sat and camped. Well I took up the spot which is -1888, 50, 158 where the mob spawns in the thought leech caves in the south part of zone. ( I don't know if he roams or not after he spawns, but I have seem him spawn there 3 times all at varied intervals. Once as short as an hour apart.) The ph'ers are on about a 12 min pop time. I stayed there for 4.5 hours and nothing.
I realize this is a easy mob for so nice an augment if they do change it, it would be a shame. It is a long camp. The hot zones drop augments from unmasked changlings example from Cazic Thule a 10 ac 45hp augment drops and it's not from a "fabled Mob" that only happens once a year.
I hope they leave it as is. Very few things are worth waiting 15 hours for.

heh let me guess you play on Drinal....if so I was the poor sob who sat there 10.5 hrs with no pop....person b4 I got there said the group b4 him got theirs and 4 spawns later he got his....I have my druid camped there and it seems to pretty much be perma camped but most people I talk to say they have been there several hours w/o luck. Glad fabled r up for a month....don't think I'm gonna sit for another 10.5 hrs waiting for it to pop tho.

Spawn time nerfed also
# Mar 21 2007 at 7:37 AM Rating: Decent
Looks like they nerfed the spawn time on some Fabled also, if not all again. I attempted to pop a few different ones just for fun, and in 3 hours couldn't get any Fabled to spawn where last week I would of gotten at least 5 or 6.

Some guildies camped Thought Leach for 5 hours and no spawn, while the previous person they took the camp from had been there for 7 hours.

I personally think this is the wrong way to handle it. Instead of nerfing the spawn time, they should just correct the aug to a more appropriate level for the mob which should be around 5-10 AC max. 25AC is still too high for a level 59 mob drop, and now the people who camped for 35AC are upset at the partial correction, and other people who haven't gotten it yet are upset about the nerfed spawn time, while others are upset they caved and still haven't made it level appropriate. So long story shortened - NOBODY happy now. Woot - happy anniversary!

I also question the testing of fabled drops in general - do they NOT look at every drop from mobs they put into the database? This shouldn't be THAT hard, I do software testing myself and the drop is a hardcoded element that is static - only the drop rate and spawn are variable. I'm not questioning the AC part in this statement, but the fact that there are multiple aug drops that are unequipable. Think a lessons learned from previously making this same mistake should of prevented again. Oh well...ranting and raving not gonna get me anywhere - sounds like a good time for a BEER! HEHE.

The spawn time has always been random, since day 1 of Fabled Luclin. There has been no "nerf" to anything as of date of this post. Some ppl get lucky and it drops w/in 30-50minutes. The VAST majority will be here 3-6 hrs, and some will be unlucky enough to wait 8-14 hrs or longer. RNG ftw.
