Gynok Moltor

It can be assumed by Gynok's last name that he is related to Vin Moltor. The Moltors are a family from Hallas who met the Blackburrow gnolls years ago. During this meeting, they seem to have made off with one of the gnolls hands. This "paw" has remained in the possesion of their family for some time.

The Moltors were cursed by the gnolls years ago, so it's not really surprising to find Gynok raised from the dead. What is surprising is that he managed to hold onto a platinum ring which is needed to restore the Paw of Opolla to it's magical state.

I was camping the elf skeleton, behind the bottom door, and Gynok Moltor just happened to path by. I'm level 21 and he con'ed white to me, so he can obviously be lower than level 24.

New Spawn Time

They must have lowered the spawn time for the placeholders now. Perhaps they thought it was too time consuming. Exact spawn time is now 9 minutes and 53 seconds (If I added right). They may have even made him more common, not sure, but I've seen 3 within 12 hours today. Hope that information helps.
The Spawn
# Oct 18 2007 at 9:17 PM Rating: Decent
Here's the deal. He has a PH, and he's not on a timer. His PH spawns at the zone in, as has been mentioned before. But the PH will despawn if not killed after a few minutes. Prior to writing this post (as I am camping him right now) his PH spawned 3 times, with out me ever killing them, and no one else in zone, spawns where "Ice Bone Skeleton" then a rat, then a ghoul. The mummy will agro you when he spawns and apparently stays active longer than the other PH's. I got killed while at work by the mummy, Who knows how long he beat on me, face was in wall so no riposte. Anyway when I ran my cleric there the timer on corpse was 1h 40m, and he was still up. Either he respawned in that time frame or he never despawned.

Again 100% his PH will despawn, you can stand at zone in and eventually he will spawn and agro you.

I went and killed everything I could in the area around the entrance. Spent about 2 hours there, and never saw him.

My solution: I cheated...I went to the bazaar and bought the ring for about 5p. I guess the guy who sold it didnt realize how valuable it was to me!

No to get the gold ring....

Seen him about half a dozen times while levelling in Befallen: I'm almost certain that he is a random wanderer spawn and the placeholder is the plague rat, skelly, ghoul or whatever that walks from the entrance to the locked door and back... he seems to follow a similar path until someone aggros him (never got close enough without aggroing to verify that it's the same path).

He can see through sneak/hide. I was picking the first door today with my rouge twink when he spawned. He walked through the door to the top and didn't aggro me at first. But about 30 seconds later I got punched in the back of the head for 40 points, and being he was yellow to me I just tucked tail and ran.

Soloing with my 11 bard in Befallen, I was staying at the entrance and only pulling from the first room.

Gynok popped on me twice in 15 minutes. Both times I was in the entry hall, once about half way to the main first floor room, the other I was sitting at the zone-in healing up, and both times he popped BEHIND me, so he definitely spawns at the entrance.

I had my 46 druid parked there. After the second pop, I logged my druid on just in time to see Gynok pass through the locked first floor door. I followed him down to the next floor before I killed him.

A ghoul also did the same thing several times, and headed to the lower floors also. Both times the ghoul popped right before Gynok.

Gynok dropped the platinum ring both times.

When I first went to Befallen to camp Gynok, I wound up camping the wrong spawn for about three hoursÖ oy. I didnít choose this title just because it sounds funny, you know. Anyway, not counting that, hereís a log of my 29 druidís attempt at camping Gynok and what placeholders spawned when. With sixteen minutes in between spawns, I had plenty of time to meditate at the zone. About two minutes before the spawn, I put up my damage shield so I would damage the mob a little when it aggroed. Like many people you love to hate nowadays, I got lucky and Gynok was the twelfth and final spawn at 11:34pm, the last one I planned to kill before bamfing for the night. Hereís the logÖ

8:38pm - a giant rat (first kill)
8:54pm - a plague rat
9:10pm - ice boned skeleton
9:26pm - ice boned skeleton
9:42pm - a large skeleton
9:58pm - a giant rat
10:14pm - a ghoul
10:30pm - ice boned skeleton
10:46pm - ice boned skeleton
11:02pm - a giant rat
11:18pm - a giant rat
11:34pm - Gynok Moltor (dropped platinum ring)

The percentage of appearance I calculated for each mob within the twelve spawns is as follows. These likely donít reflect the true percentage, but itís what I got. The ice boned skeletons and giant rats seem to be the most common spawns.

4/12 - a giant rat
4/12 - ice boned skeleton
1/12 - a large skeleton
1/12 - a plague rat
1/12 - a ghoul
1/12 - Gynok Moltor

Gynok was blue and about the same difficulty as the mammoths I had been fighting in Everfrost prior to this camp. Root, Immolate, nuke to one bubble of health, then sit back and feel your *** grow as he falls back into his coffin.

Of course, this info probably wonít apply to everybodyís sessions, but I hope it helps if youíre considering doing the Paw quest. Iím going to head over to Upper Guk tomorrow and see if I can get a spot camping the fungus mutant for the last two rings, possibly posting a similar log with drop percentages.

Best way to get this guy....there is no best way.
Camped him for 12 hours straight before he popped....Last night I just zoned into Befallen to see what was shakin and there he was just wandering around with no one but me and him in the zone :)
LOL...I only had one Lifedrain DoT up so I had to drain him and then melee him to death :) was pretty funny looking...since my piercing skill is in the mid-50's.
In the numerous times I have killed him I have actually got all 4 rings to drop from him...although I would not recommend trying to do the quest by just killin him....It will take way to long

i had been camping moltar with my alt, a 22-cleric, for a few days hoping to get lucky and not have to camp for 6 hours (as i had heard). after a week went by with no luck, i had popped in not expecting much. i killed two PH's & was bored so i started to summon food (coincidently i suppose, but maybe he was hungry :)) when he appeared! i killed him with the help of a 22-ranger and all he dropped was the copper ring. so, thinking he wouldnt pop for another 6 hours or so, i went to the 3rd level to get some exp. i had to gate out & when i entered the zone, there was Moltar again & this time he dropped the plat ring. i have to say that i did go back and kill 2 more PH's out of boredom of camping a SK, but i never expected him to pop again so quickly--twice in one and one half hours!! So, his pops ARE random for those who want to know :)

He appears on the first floor...although if no one kills him he will wander through the first locked door and back again. He pops near the WC/Befallen zone.

Not sure on spawn time, but truely believe that it is just random, but I have now killed him twice in about 20 hour time period. I killed him early this morning at about 5:30 a.m. and just killed him again today at 5:30 p.m., not sure if that was good luck or if that is spawn time, but this is just my 2 cents.
Purely Random

I just killed him on Lany T`Vyl server. I was in befallen with my lvl 15 shaman killing greaters near the bottom of the first set of stairs. There was no one else in the zone, so I know no one was killing the skele on the landing (besides he was up when I ran for the exit). I logged in with my druid (who thankfully was in WC) and wasted him. Plat ring dropped, now to get the copper and Gold (allready had the silver).
He spawned

I decided to get the paw for my cleric (play two accounts). I don't belive much in any far fetched strategies for getting mobs to spawn. However, since I had nothing to do I killed everything in befallen with my warrior.. over and over again.. 12h later I log off tired and pissed off.

Next day patchday and I logged on as soon servers opened (junkie warning). Then I just sat at entrance buffing lowlevels and helping them out some.. 4-5h later the ****** spawns and I got the plat ring.

Right now im sitting in uguk camping the Fungus mutant, who knows how long it will take.. I'v got the "common" drop for Copper ring 3-4 times in 4h.

I hate this quest..

Forgot to add some trivialities, I killed the PH at entrance every 16 min.
