He does not spawn at the fort, rather in the mino caves:

He's . . uh . . assassinateable.

I wasn't expecting that. Right behind him (naturally) with a 76 rogue and nothing else aggroed. Mid-room wanderer was in his furthest spot when I got him, he moves around about every twenty seconds.

Just had to share.

Just for clarification, The minotaur mines are not in back of the minotaur fort. They're South of the windmill from where you pop in from Guild Hall portal.

Tried the stand on the rocks trick and he took off across the room and dragged everyone back on us. I recommend clearing out the adds first... when you enter the room you'll get three minos at the same time, and then you can get the last two without adding Higoren himself

Standing just behind that rock I was able to pull only him with a bowshot. Probably some luck involved with it.

Invis is a good idea to get to this mob. He is in the far SW end of tunnels just on the north end of the turn. (near the -1000 mark on map but oppisite corner of there)
If you go up behind him you will get 2 adds along with him. Kill him first then the adds. They run around 20% hp. He did not summon us. Either invis or clear rest of room, about 3 more mobs. 85 warrior & 77 shaman took them down with no porblems.

When you go into his room get up on the rocks behind him. I did this today and only got 1 add. Killed him with 77 wizard with tank merc and 70 ranger with cleric merc. Was a push over. Quest is easy and the disguise looks awesome!
