What am I missing?

I am obviously missing something and I blame the fact that I tried this camp for the first time with a couple beers in my system.

85 SK, I'd never been in this zone until last zone, so I took my 85 monk in with me. I (falsely) assumed it was going to be a small zone so we just started clearing everything - easy peasy until we pushed a mob into a wall and trained half the zone from above onto our location. Anyway, kept clearing until I saw how little progress we were making on the map and eventually just took the SK ahead with invis and FD flopping - the deeper you get, the more SI mobs there are - so it was more flopping than I would have liked. Eventually I had gone through most of the zone without seeing a room as described in the comments below, or taking note of any of the locs below. I was probably in here for 2 hours all together.

So, where exactly is this stupid camp and what's the easiest way there? I guess I could try again sober, but I'm not sure where the fun is in that ;)

Yup it finally does start poping after a wile for some stupid reason, kind of a PITA. if it is based on the amount of mobs you kill or a certain amount of time the instance has been up I have no idea, all I know is by the time it starts popin its a wile. very strange.

I can confirm it is based on mobs killed. I killed I believe 25 and then the spot started spawning.
some additional info.

Have to kill approx 15 mobs in zone before this mob or its PH will spawn.

I camped it for 3 days to get the aug. Killed the mob 6 times; got a chest piece 5 times and aug once.

The mob, or its ph, spawns every 20 minutes. I'd say that the named spawns about 1 in 3 or 1 in 4 of the times.

Been farming this mob for the AC aug.

This is the exact location:-155.86, 36.71, 2.41, spawns next to the (5) pipes in that corner.

Spwan timer: 20 min

PH: any steamwork series (ex. steamwork repairer, steamwork reaver, staemwork shockblaster )

Room: is the very last room at the top of the zone. Run your way all to the top, once you reach the room with the big green brain shaped thing in the top middle, take the ramp to your right. There is a door at the end of the ramp , passed that door go down below to the ramp to your left ( SE corner of the room , safe to camp ).

Camp: its safe to set a camp below the SE ramp, no adds pull

Notes:
Just copy and paste this into your map.
P -155.86, 36.71, 2.41, 127, 0, 0, 3, Coleoptera Assault Sweeper

Sometimes u might find that the PH is not up, is that the case just start clearing some mobs, he will eventually spwan.

Hope this helps.

I'm trying to figure out if I'm in the right room, havent found his place holder yet... is it the room with less decoration? or is it the room that on the east wall, about 100 feet up a GIANT orange circle thing is that is the brain room. I've found the spot someone suggested to put the Campfire, but not the spawn or PH.

thanks any more visual help?

I'll let you guys know if i find it!

Ok I got her to spawn last night, after 2 PH kills, strange thing was... once I arrived in the room, the placeholder was not there, but all of the sudden a bit later there it was, spawn rate is 20 mins and the mob IS a single, easily a soloable camp, if you can get up there (MONKS! this bugs for u).

In the brain room (which is NOT the fancy decorated room I posted about above, with the giant orange window on the wall. I assume thats the 'face room' or something... the brain room is the less decorated room (with no appearance of a brain that I could find) and two giant ramps that lead in from the face room.

under the southeast ramp, away from the 2 groups of 3 mobs that are at the foot of each ramp alone you will find the place holder (or will eventually) I killed both the groups at the foot of each ramp before I found the place holder... when I posted the above topic, I went to the PH's corner and there was no mob there... about 10 mins later, there it was, a single steamwork guy just standing there... so I killed him. 2 pops later the named spawned and drooped only a warped steel BP, 5 ph kills after that and I couldn't get the beetle to spawn again and went to bed...

Named is cake and is just as easy as any other steamwork in the zone to a level 80+.

Loc is about -41, 2, 1. It's the very top floor.

Mob is rather rare. Camping the mob for about 8 hours (20 minute timer) only had 2 show up. Good luck with this one...

This mob cons yellow to a level 80 so level 84 is incorrect.

To further clarify, it spawns in the SE corner of the very last room, on the ground (not up the ramp).

It also uses this:

I apologize for the three pictures uploaded, it gave me an error message each time, then as I came back to post this all three appeared. I figured nothing uploaded due to the error message.

have to go all the way to the end in the brain room, then move up the ramp and click on the wall at top. that's really a door.

I had trouble opening it though until i got levitate. then it opened on first click for some reason.

it spawns all by itself
