No faction hits... just like the rest of the isle goblins it seems.
Spawn time is wrong

spawn time is most definitely NOT 3-7 minutes as previously stated. I killed him at :22 and he/PH didnt respawn again until :34

He dropped a Driftwood Pipe, among other things, on Agnarr this evening.

Just wanted to confirm that the loc +2435.35, -5784.43 is correct. Spawns in a small hut next to two others.

/loc is good.

Headhunter does placehold.

As a level 31 he /conned light and dark blue.

His nearby pals were mostly lg, some green and the occasional db. They aggro with him.

I saw all 3 quest drops in 5 kills. Took the 5th to get the one I wanted of course.

The maps coordinates listed are correct. The numbers are reversed in your map file. Just copy and paste to your oceanoftears-1.txt file.

Round two with goblin headhunter, I win. Spawned goblin headmaster at
+2435.35, -5784.43, -247.11. All three no drop items dropped. The goblins in the shantys on each side of him will auto aggro on you, so be carefull. Goblin Wizzy froze me for 275 dmg and the Shammy stuck a poison on me for 60/tick along with rooting me, with 60 poison, 70 cold and 70 magic resists. I would say under conned slightly. The headmaster was the easiest of the 4 various types of mobs I encountered, (wizzy, shammy, headhunter and headmaster). Respawn time, about 6mins.

I have spent numerous hours at all times staggered........ have not seen "a goblin headmaster" as of yet. If this is a deleted quest say so.. for we all have better things to do as to camp a figment of someone's imagination.

I also, had my tracker there.. and covered the entire OOT area.. for there isn't a headmaster... common my **** !

The new Ph for the Goblin Headmaster is an isle goblin headhunter. It is not on same island as Oracle. The exact spawn location is -2435.35, -5784.43, -247.11.

Additionally, Gellmana Sunara is on this island.

Thanks Sony, for correcting the Rune of Clay frp... but yaz are buggers for changing the location... Happy Gaming !

O nice zone re-vamp... and no maps hehehe !

Ah, not exactly. There is NO island at that location. However I did find an isle goblin headhunter at /loc +2435.35, -5784.43. roughly as my invis dropped and I was mobbed by 7 or more goblins that were actually green to a 36lvl mage, (unlike the old ones that were all gray to me, hence the reason I had no buffs like temp on me, ooops!!) To add to it, I crashed wial returning to bindpoint. I am now 'cooling off' for awhial and will repost with the complete info when I get time to return to Norrath.

no longer here.

Camped this guy for over 4 hours and he didnt even spawn.. and i know i was in the right spot.. so im guessing he was taken out of the game.

Started harvester quest today as a 36 necro non twinked (i.e. from scratch)
Went to OOT to the loc given below (-1203, -8567) and he spawns exactley there. Spawn time was about 4 mins got the dagger 2nd pop - he was weilding it so can confirm you will only get it if he has a dagger in his hand.
As for pulling him - use darkness to get him away from the others as they will add despite being grey. Then just root him and dot him - goes down easy.
Spawn rate

Seems to spawn every 3 to 6 minutes

After zoning in from Butcherblock, look south. You'll see an island with a flag. Swim to the flag. At the flag, run south over the top of the center peak and to the other side. There will be another flag and a tent. The headmaster spawns near the doorway of the tent.

He has a spawnbuddy but pops often. He does not drop the Rune of Clay every time but its a common drop.

Good hunting,
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 05 2004 at 7:45 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Killed him very quickly with my 57 DE Rogue. I'm not sure he scratched me even.

You killed a level 25 mob at 57 without a scratch? And that was worth posting because?

I went there tonight and after I finally found him..2 clicks he was gone...
He dropped everything, dagger,rune,and mask all at once.
I dont get Verant either sometimes..I can only hope that its a random thing for mob drops and all the talk about spawns and dropps are wrong would be sad to think SOMEONE actually did the drop rates on purpose...lol

Quest drops seem pretty common: I killed him three times for the dagger for the Harvester quest, first time got the mask, second time the rune, third time all three. First two times he also dropped Bronze Knuckles: you can see the dagger in his hands when he has it, so if you can't see it you know you're going to be disappointed...

The Headmaster spawned exactly on those coordinates! For anyone else looking to kill this gobbo- It is the tent on the south side of the isle (#9 on EQatlas map) near a large brown stone T shaped thing (looks like an overpass support on a US Highway :) Spawn time is very short, 5-7 minutes at most. I camped him for less then an hour, had a headmaster spawn every 3rd pop or so. After clearing the area of greens I noticed that the headmaster will pop with a warrior who also conned blue to this 29 necro. The headmaster has around 700-800 hp by my guess. First drop was the mask second was the dagger, my goal. Good luck fellow questers!

i hate this guy
# Oct 28 2001 at 5:07 AM Rating: Decent
I killed him 6 times and he didn't drop the rune of clay which i need. Everytime he dropped the chipped mask and dagger. EQ makes me so mad sometimes
WTF! I Couldn't Get it!
# Aug 07 2001 at 7:38 AM Rating: Decent
Ok me and my lvl 41st friend went there coz he is helping me with my harvester quest and he pulled the Goblin Headmaster that conned him green, when it came it aggro'd on me and my warrior friend couldn't hit it, it kept saying, Target Is too far away! Well as u know, he killed me, So my friend tried re-logging and trying again he still couldnt hit it! WTF!!! Anyone know what goin one there?

Am i good enough to kill him?
# Jun 10 2001 at 6:42 AM Rating: Default
Is a 29 mage good enough? also suggest which pet to use? thnks
RE: Am i good enough to kill him?
# Jan 23 2003 at 2:06 PM Rating: Decent
I'm sure a level 29 mage can do this. I'm a level 26 magician, and I made this part of the quest today.

First I picked up a ring of levitation for 1pp from bazaar for easier travelling in OOT. In OOT I entered the goblin island shore south of the tent where master spawns (look other posts), and buffed my water pet with armor and weapons, burnout and damage shield. My first couple were the headhunter and the headmaster, but it was easier than I thought. Heal pet, nuke, heal pet, nuke. The shield of flame is very useful! No drops though. 2nd couple was isle goblin and headhunter, easy again. For third couple I got an additional add from behind the sand dune, but that master dropped my clay and the mask! For these 3 pairs I got 12% of exp too. Be ready to finish them off when they flee or they'll aggro lot of stuff. The wandering goblins come close enough to aggro with the tent, some overview exploring helps. Sitting at waterline south of that tent seems to be safe, I was afk there without problems.

I'm a level 26 nontwink mage, and didn't have KEI or any other mind buffs on. Go for it, fellow mages!

I am planning to do the acumen mask quest, i am 21, is this a good level?
Good Exp from 25 to 30

As a druid I spent many hours killing this gobbie. At 25 you will occasionally have trouble if a Headhunter spawns next to the headmaster. But this is a rare case. The is plenty of room on the island to kite the Headmaster along the beach, just be sure to keep him snared so that you don't pull the entire island of goblins onto yourself.

Unlike other shadowed items this one is NOT no rent. It will stay after you log.

# Jun 24 2000 at 12:36 PM Rating: Decent
Is the knife no rent, meaning you log out an it disappears?

When I started on my Acuman mask quest I scouted this fellow out. I was 30 then. I felt at that time he would be the hardest because of all the wandering goblins (Upper guk and Unrest would be camped, easy to get the items). I was wrong :) This guy was the easiest... When he spawns, the nearby shamin gobbie casts a shield spell and SoW on him.

Stand by the water and move up towards him while trying to cast, when the blast starts to go off, interupt it. You are now at the right spot to pull. Cast a levitate and cast a vision spell to make sure no headhunters are near him, and hit him hard. Next root him and cast one dispell (another will take root off, so only one). Now just nuke away.
He very good xp. I leave the drops on him and do a /who to see if any wizards, enchanters or necros are in the zone and ask them if they need those drops...
