Useless information all over this board. If I had a nickel for everytime I saw "could xxx solo this?" without having read down the board 5 posts to where it was answered, I'd be rich.

Anyway. This camp has 3 spawns: left, middle, and right. The one on the left is always a trash mob, either a knight or a wizard. The middle one is either the Ghoul Supplier or a PH. The right one is either the Ghoul Assassin or a PH.

The spawn time on all three is about 28-30 minutes. The Supplier and Assassin are not particularly rare spawns, spawning somewhere between 30 and 50% of the time, I would say.

The Assassin seems to drop the mask most commonly, and slightly rarer, the dirk. If he's carrying the dagger and it procs while you're fighting, then you know what he has.

The Supplier usually drops the Light Burlap Sack (65% Weight Reduction) and rarely drops the Thick Banded Belt.

Around level 50 it would be possible to solo this camp. The monsters don't hit very hard, but if you have to break it and it's 3 wizards... they can take you down pretty quick. Best to go in with a partner if you can.

Not sure if this will help but I (55 Bard) solo'd this camp with ease with the exception of the supplier. He got me down to 30% health. He conned light blue but hit in the 96 range. Most of the other mobs were green but some were light blue, I didn't have any probs with them.

Just a note about the camp, there's 2 spawns and a roamer inside the assup room. (the roamer wanders around the room, but doesn't leave). I'd recommend pulling the wanderer down to the lower level first and finish him, then kill the 2 in the room with charm.

I got the MoD after waiting 2 hours for it to spawn for another group. They left and i got a 65 cleric to help me. I was waiting patiently for the next spawn round then, *POP* he spawned again, i was sooooo lucky becuz the first group had waited 1/2 a day, real time for him to spawn. It was very lucky.

#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 15 2002 at 2:42 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I'm trying to get the mask for my bard atm, and was wondering which way would be better to take. I camped my bard at the zoneline to the dead side in Upper Guk. But when i got there i realized my bards invis spell was only to live monsters. Anyone know which side is better to take? Thx for the help ahead of time.

This page is about the assas. not the zone. If you don't know what lvls you can solo, you should try not paying for your account any more. You are not allowed to post any more. You are a boob.

im on a pvp server and im on the good team, this means its damn near impossible to get into neriak. well now i can =). my rouge follows tunare and if you use this mask to sneak past the guards, then go to the red wine quest room you can get high faction almost instantly. this can be done without the mask. as ye olde sneaky *******, i can hide and sneak to the wine room and get behind the quest giver for indifferant faction while sneaking. then i hand him the red wines. with about 20 stacks of wine your faction will go from threat, scowl, or dub to warmly, admire or even allie. this is ******* on a pvp server for a few reasons.

1. i can run in neriak now.

2. i can spy on the evil team without fear of being attacked.

3. if they attack me then they will get attacked themselves by the guards.

and nobody expects me to be able to get in there. thats the best part.
Happy fun time.

This guy was easy and fun to take down. For a guide on the path to take go to this site: http://home.columbus.rr.com/eonx/mod.html . As a bard, whose sneak max's at 75 and hide max's at 40, making them almost useless, I (a 48 bard) had to fight through the path marked on the site above with a 42 paladin and a 49 druid and made it easy. The druid went LD a few times and we still made it, although the pally did have to use LoH. The assassin is on a 30 min spawn, and is often replaced by a place holder. It took an hour for him to spawn, but it the mask is well worth it. The supplier, on the other hand, never spawned.

P.S. Thanks a lot, Gered Shadowblade, your guide really helped, despite the fact that I am a bard. Props to you! And I hope you don't mind my free advertising of your site.

BTW the mask does not drop everytime he is killed.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 19 2002 at 7:30 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Btw, The mask drops everytime the Assassin is killed, just to clear things up

I spent a few hours camping for the mask today and saw the assassin twice. The first time he dropped the rare drop, https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=709 and a fine steel weapon.

The second spawn of the assassin dropped the mask.

I'm sure the mask is quite common looking at some of the boards about this drop, he does NOT drop it every time.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 19 2002 at 7:23 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Err... since i cant even USE it yet =) not loot it yet.

I have a 14th level bard and i keep him camped in Upper Guk ( Have been for about a week ) And when i log on, i go in to see if assassin is camped, he usually is, and i ask if i can loot they mask, they say sure, come on down, so i grab IVU and head down to assassin, I was there through 7 spawns ( 30 mins apart ) and never saw the Assassin or the Supplier, Next day, someone else was camping it, they say I can have the mask, so I go on down there, I was there through 5 spawns then before i had to log an eat, no sign of it or the supplier, next day i log on, only 4 people in lower guk, so i log off and go play my necro some, then i log back on my bard and the supp/*** is camped, so i go down there and ask if i can loot the mask, they say sure, they invite me to group, i play heal song and haste song, and resists for the wizards of course. That time i was there through 11 frikin spawns and no sign yet.. So i get tired, log and go to sleep. Next day, i wake up, log on my bard and someone is camping it, i go there, they say i can loot mask "if" it drops, so this time im there for about 5-7 spawns ( cant remember correctly ) and STILL NO FRIKIN SIGN OF THE D*MN ASSASSIN, So im getting tired of his BS and hiding from me keeping me from getting my mask, maybe it has cursed me since i cant even loot it yet /sigh, ill go back tomarrow and check and "maybe" ill get lucky

Killed him, he was a bit harder. Got the mask and the Dirk in the same drop. then i get ina group and we go kill the arch magi, rolled a 975!! now i have the Shinning metallic Robes, what a lucky night.

DE Druids
# May 12 2002 at 1:28 AM Rating: Default
The DE Druid you saw with epic was using (most probably) a DE illusion mask that sadly does not drop anymore. Hope this solves the riddle for ya.

I am a 33 Barb Rogue and have had the MOD since level 18. Had friend do the actual dirty work but I got the loot. Getting through Lower Guk was not really a problem as I stayed in Sneak/Hide the entire walk and had SOW to speed up the process. Be careful as there are a few ladders you have to climb up to get through LG that are nearly impossible in S/H without SOW. There is also a section you have to swim through that can be a killer in S/H at normal speed and taking off S/H is not wise as the guards at either end will agro you under water and jump in to terminate.

You could try it with a group but any group that trys to get through LG is going to have to fight their way to and then back out so make sure you have a well rounded group.

All in all my trip went okay. The MOD dropped on first kill after only waiting 30 minutes or so for *** to spawn. Back into S/H and away I went. Lost SOW so had to find ways around ladders and managed to get lost more times than I can count. Spent more time getting out than I did getting in or camping the ***.

Go for it, the mask is worth it if for nothing more than braggin rights
#Anonymous, Posted: May 09 2002 at 9:53 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Is there any other items like Mask of Decpetion that a can use? I know this sounds crazy but i saw a DE with epic and everything, i swear to god, in the EC tunnel. Please tell me if theres an illusion DE item for s cause i would love to get one for myself.

the old mask that use to drop was still bard/rogue but clickable from the inventory, a lot of old school shammy trolls and ogres have it because it was a good way to shrink yourself. since then that mask no longer drops only the one that must be worn to use effect

(same guy as above) If your wondering about the blank spots in the above post, they are suposed to say druid. I saw a DE Druid in the EC tunnel. And i want to know how this is possible. My dad has one of those stupid internet filter programs and for some reason it thinks DRUID is a bad word. Go figure. So yeah, if you know how this is possible please post. =)

OMFG!! i want that item too!! Being a DE Druid would kick ***. Please someone post the item name or however that guy was able to do this.

I'm pretty sure that it doesn't drop any more :). that's what I heard from a high lvl friend that's been playing for a while.

Went in for my Mask as an 18 Rogue with a 48 Pally backing me. Walked though Uguk and Live Side with no problem, picked up an invis to undead and waltzed up to the ***/Sup room. We sat around for a while before he spawned. Pally took him down in a few seconds, with a few stabs from me, and I got my mask. Died on the way out, thanks to some bats and crap like that, but oh well! A rez later and a short, leisurely walk out of Guk and I had my mask!

The assassin isn't that hard, but the others in the room that pop with him are a nuisance, so take a little backup if you're pre-45.
# Apr 14 2002 at 12:35 PM Rating: Default
No the assassin doesn't drop the mask all the time. I went down there about level 20 with my bard. Spent about 15-24 hours trying to get my mask. A lot of people who camp it (at least on the Rodcet Nife server), camp it for the mask for a twink or a friend. And two or three times, I found someone camping it that didn't need the mask, but in 4 or 5 hours of camping it with them (I just sat down there while they killed...being a bard it's better to go down before it drops, get an invis undead), the mask didn't drop.
It took quite awhile before I got my mask. But then again I have heard of people getting lucky and it dropping on the first time. It's just random.
Also the assassin isn't by himself. There are 3 spawns up there. You would need someone to help you break the room.
