Sorrow roams the underground crypt tunnels, placeholder is a slithering shade - the 3 that roam. Hidden from view with Ethereal Invisibility, you need enhanced see invis to target it.

Sorrow the named shade

Sorrow self-buffs with Ethereal Invisibility. Casts Cackle during battle.

Placeholders are a slithering shade in the underground crypt tunnels. Just the 3 roamers, not the static ones.
Sorrow and its placeholders are indifferent (not aggressive).
Sorrow and its placeholders are invisible with SoS.

To view or track the shades and/or Sorrow you need WIZ MAG 77 Aspect of Zomm, RNG 76 Skylight Sagacity, DRU 77 Sharp Eyes or 87 Eyes of the Winter Hawk. Or use an AE to get aggro. They are social with each other.

For some reason this spell has see invis 3 while others dont and comes in real handy sure beats using my wizards eye of zomm. There's a couple of hunters you will need see these improved vis mobs in this zone.

aspect of zoom

After hours of messing around with bad hints i used aspect of zoom and got the essence of a shade with an aoe.

1 confirmed PH

PH is "a slithering shade"

Went looking for him in the crypt and sat up camp in the big room to the east, where the crystal ground spawn and Bimbalicus the Soulbleeder is. The only "a slithering shade" we killed was the wanderer going N-S and passing through the room with the 3 Crypt Guardians just up the ramp from our room.
My guess is he can spawn from any of the "a slithering shade" there, how ever he can only be seen with some kind of SI2 (Wiz/Mage eye or Ranja/druid selfbuff) and not be tracked either, unless they just spawned and havent cast ethereal invis on them self.
The good news are the "a slithering shade" are non KOS and u can aggro them with AE attacks, or asssit someone that can see them and then aggro/tag them.

IMO he is not worth camping, very few safe spots down there and to much trouble getting "a slithering shade" killed/pulled due to their invis2. Both Horak in Bloodmoon Keep and Steamwork Guardian Model I in Fortress Mechanotus drops the helmets as well, I suggest u go try one of these instead.
