Gynok Moltor  


Uploaded July 24th, 2007
Updated July 25th, 2007

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.

this is just uh guess... but whenever a "special" spawn comes into befallen every now and then and shouts <whatever> shouts "gragh you have disturbed my rest suffer as i have!!!!!!!!!" or whatever is a place holder for gynok, i may be wrong cause i cant confirm it but he says the exact same thing and appears at the same place as the other spawns who say that, right at the entrance to befallen. The spawn keepers are either a giant/plague rat, a ice bone skeleton, or a ghoul, so if you kill them gynok will come sooner or later

My husband, a lvl 40 SK and I, a lvl 36 Druid camped this stupid mummy for 22 hours over the last 3 days. Yes, I said 22 didn't misread that..Finally after laying waste to everything multiple times, and killing anything and everything that popped up in his spawn spot...we got Gynok to spawn..he had the last ring I needed for the paw. All I can say is you better have the patience to play "Evercamp" as we so politly call it to get this guy to spawn...
Still popping

I am on the Z Server. Was playing my level 7 Monk (Stonez) and this guy popped right on top of me.
I was pulling the first floor skeletons right next to the zone when he started wacking me right there at zone in.

Gynok Alive on Prexus

Well, here on Prexus we dont have much problem locating this ugly fella. I was in befallen, with a 40 warrior lookin fer this 35 level cleric ( never seen him, wanted to "Ask" him some "Questions" heheh ) thats supposed to spawn opposite the fake wall on 3rd level, and i did a /who and saw i was alone in the zone. After a while and a few more /who i saw a 34 lev druid, asked him whats up, we started chattin and he tells me hes campin Gynok, for the ring. Took him about 1 hour 15 minutes before he popped, but the next thing i know i get a tell saying he got the spawn and the ring and was leaving. Grats Junitar! So apparently after PH killin fer a while he does in fact spawn in the same spot, up on 1st floor. =) -- Nitud, 39 Warrior, Prexus

Amazing... people griping about how this never, ever, ever, ever spawns. PFFFFT! "The PH never showed up!" you say! PFFFFT!

What makes you think the PH *stays in one place*? If you go there and there's nothing on the spawnpoint... GO KILL STUFF! The PH, and Gynok himself, wander around the zone! And, considering that the PH can be "a giant rat" or "a putrid skeleton" or any other mob that spawns in the zone, you're going to have to kill a lot of stuff to be sure that you killed the PH.

And for all of you complaining that the camp takes too long or it's too hard... YOU ARE WHINING, SNIVELING PANSIES. This item has *really* good stats for wis casters... my 55 cleric still uses it since he's not epic yet. What in the blue hell makes you think it should be an *easy* quest? You want good items? You put in the time! Take a look at the Aegis of Life quest sometime... you're looking at a 3-5 DAY -- REAL TIME DAY -- camp to get the spawns you need. I put in the time to do it because THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO.

It's all part of the higher-level game. Quests aren't about bringing 4 orc pawn scalps to some non-aggro NPC anymore, people. Learn to live with it, or STFU.

Of for the love of God, settle down. You act like these people that "whine", etc. actually disrupt your life. Give me a break. Who cares about them anyway? Let them whine, you did what you had to do, to get what you wanted, now, leave it at that.

All you did was have everyone else choose sides. the "right ons" and the "you 2 are idiots..." side.

Again, we've gotten off the subject at hand, but when a game that is easily accesible to all kinds of personalities, people, etc., you're just gonna cause a fury over nothing.

Too late...

WOW! You're just about as stupid as they come! You're telling me that when I get to "the higher-level game" I get to be like you and wait for 3-5 for a spawn? Real days even? WOW! I can't wait!

You 2 are idiots agreeing with this moron. You guys go ahead and waste your time sitting on your *** doing nothing for hours and hours. Meanwhile I will be playing the real game, having fun. Having an item you have to camp endless hours and hours to get will not make you a badass.
Oh, and quests like turning in 4 orc scalps (like you mentioned) are ALOT more challanging this this. Sitting on your *** waiting for a spawn is not challanging. A quest that takes hours and hours of doing absolutly nothing is not challanging.
Now go and sit down and stare at your screen for a few hours more. Im going to go kill some stuff and have some real fun. Idiot!

It looks like mr. Anonymous don't really get it!!!
Where will he buy all his great gear is nobody do the quests that produce them. You don't need to be called J.M. Keynes to know that prices are a result of supply and demand.

Please answer me this question: How many gigaton of rat pelt do you need to trade in to have enought cash to buy yourself a Paw, if nobody does the Paw quest... and there is no Paw for sale.


answer: NONE


Because there is NONE, nobody did the quest.... (wow your kind of slow man!)

Anyway questing can be fun. I don`t have much patience to wait for hours myself, but i did some great quest. And one of the great perk is that there is always some fighting type that will pay lots of plats to get the gear !!! Now, interesting AND rewarding!!!! What do you want more.

Oh yeah... i play mortal combat....
Well go ahead, kill, kill, kill those rats!!!
We need you to have cash to buy our gear

This will start out a little irrelevant, but please, bear with me...

About a year ago, I started painting miniaturs for Warhammer. I sucked at it, but I was just starting. I spent a LOT of time, often in 6-8 hour stretches, sitting in the basement painting. Over time, I got better at it. Now, I paint D&D figures, and I'll take 3 days to half-finish a single miniature. When I finally put it in a display case or use it in a game, I feel a sense of pride at what I have accomplished. I could work for a couple hours, get paid, and go on ebay to buy one for $25. Similarly, some people enjoy questing. Yes, it can be frustrating at times, but the sense of accomplishment that comes with it is worth the effort. Others care more about action and just want to kill stuff. I plan to do this quest one day, and I have a great respect for those that have done it. If waiting and questing isn't your thing, fine--kill stuff and buy it. Others just want to do the quest. I am actually quite curious as to why you are looking at the details for a quest that you have no desire to complete.

Attacing others, as you have here, merely because your preference clashes with theirs is just about the most bigoted thing you could ever hope to do. I sincerely hope you don't play on Brell.

Gynok is still there, went to befallen today to help a guildie, and saw that it was back to normal, so decided to test his spawn theory, killed his PH and the rat in the dead end hall at top of stairs, then finished off whole 1st floor, and was proceedeing to second when timer went off so ran back up and waited the last min (set timer for 14 so i have time to med or run to spwan) Bam! next spawn was him, and had plat ring - way kewl, so then proceed to wipe out entire dungoen to make sure he has a good chance of popping agian (logged my 36 warrior for this part and only was a bub and a half life down after killing everything in there) and then went around and did it again till Gynok poped. only took about 2 hours for him to pop again and guildie got her plat ring

Sorry, but I have been in and out of there for 2, going on 3 weeks now. Can't kill a PH if the PH isn't there. No PH, no Gynok, squat, diddly, zip, nada!
Mind you, I am talking about Tarew Marr...and we're special :p
RE: Still there
# Nov 16 2001 at 5:10 PM Rating: Default
The place holder starts at the entrance and wanders down to the bottom. You dont have to try and kill everything to make sure you killed the PH. It will respawn at the zone entrance sooner or later. Of course it would be funner to go around and kill everything in the dungon than sit around on your *** doing nothing like that idiot a few posts above does.

Just as an FYI...did get a few of his PH's to spawn last unsure if his spawn rate has been changed etc, but am fairly sure he still spawns in zone...couple peeps I have spoken to say his spawn rate has much increased since Befallen went back to the way it was before all the DE stuff went on...also, as an added bonus, everything in the dungeon is too low to aggro me at lvl 40, so getting some of the rarer drops here (granted they arent worth much, but is cool to give some newbie a BBC :))is fairly simple. good luck on getting this ring and if anyone gets one on Brell server and they want to seel before I get one of my own..gimme a tell:)

Same problem for me on Tarew Marr.
I have been there over 30 hours and seen neither Gynok, nor any place holders.
A druid was there once who claimed to have been KS'ed twice, maybe the spawn just does not work during some times of the day...which bites because my work schedule only allows me to be there at certain times.

I am having the same problems on Zeb. Was he taken out or moved? This is the last peice that I need for the paw. Any info you could give to us would be appreciated.
Not hard at all
# Aug 05 2001 at 12:31 PM Rating: Decent
I have become a Paw of Opolla quest expert, since I have now done it 5 times. I am a level 24 warrior. I have not had the difficult time that everyone else seemed to have had with this spawn. Took about 6 hours total each time I have done the quest. he spawns right in the entrance of Befallen, if he doesnt spawn one of his Place holders will. The PHs include, plague rat, large rat, putrid skeleton, large skeleton, and ghouls. The spawn time is 15 minutes 30 seconds. He has dropped the ring every time I have killed him. Have had more difficulty with the mutant than I ever have with Gynok. Hope this helps some of you. GL

I've been campin this guy on and off for a week, about1-3hours a day, i have never seen him nor any of his PHs, haven't seen anything shout anything to the zone, pleeeeaase, i need help i've almost finished the quest. Got everything but plat ring.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 18 2001 at 7:04 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hmmm Maybe you should go level Mr 24 warrior and stop ******* farming **** like this. That's what fycks up pricing is when people farm multi-quests like this and jack up the da@mn price.

#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 01 2001 at 6:38 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) A few days ago I was camping Gynok to get the plat ring... started early in the morning because I planned to be camping him all day(my friend had to camp him for 15 hours) but... it was kind of funny... I got there and was meditating at the zone border, when all of the sudden, after about 2 minutes Gynok Moltor crushes YOU for 38 points of damage! Gynok Moltor tries to crush YOU, but YOU dodge! Gynok Moltor crushes YOU for 20 points of damage! and that probably had to be the most exhilarating moment of my life... that was my first time ever camping something, and it spawned in just 2 minutes! I was amazed. At level 30, he /con`d green, and I meleed him with relative ease(I'm a cleric), and luckily he dropped the plat ring I all I need is that damned degenerated guk weed, I've been camping the mutant fungus guy with my friend for a week now... 12-20 a day... he still hasn't dropped it yet. I'm getting really frustrated with this...

#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 28 2001 at 2:26 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Was going on a group raid today and we got to a slow start waiting for people to show. So we get going and everything on first floor is green to me (im 22) and second floor everything is low blue to black. I noticed someone camping Gynok when I came in and told him good luck, he'd been there for 7hrs. 30 minutes later we heard him shout he got the ring. We said congrats and went on killing stuff an camping for some key. 45 minutes later I notice a mummy comming towards us and I see "Gynok Molter tries to hit yo but misses. Gynok Molter tries to hit you but you dodge" He's not red like it is in that picture on this site of him, he's pure white. My group is like 12 lvl 20-25 players so we take him down easy and I ninja loot it and get the ring =) I stupidly didnt con him though but he didn't seem too hard with not that many hp's. So it seemed. Anyone wants to buy the platinum ring I'm on Tunare, just /tell Xylum. It's gonna be gone by the end of the 29th though so don't bother after that.

iwas fighting today in befallen a little bit when all of the sudden this guy pops out of nowhere. i didn't know what he was till i came on here. i could have handled him had i not been fighting a servant. luckily, someone helped me out..seeing as i was handling alot of stuff...and he was a named monster. what's crazy is he conned red....and hit me less often and not as much as the dark followers. why is that?

WHY IS GOLD RING WORTH MORE THAN PLAT, I have never waited more than an hr for gold ring but plat ring i have stay 32 hrs straight till spawn and he dropped the copper ring, the only reason its not worth 2 to 3k is players in the teens can camp the spawn!

I plan on camping the spawn at level 21 on my Paladin. I hit for 50 tops right now and am building my double attack. I read that someone killed him with a level 20 paladin, not sure if he was twinked or what. Think I can take him without using LoH?

# Jul 18 2001 at 9:54 AM Rating: Default
Yesterday...the 18th, a few hours after writing the previous post, I was camping Gynok again. He popped again!! =)

His PH's were Ice boned skellies that would send a shout to the whole zone when they popped. I remember one shouting something about disturbing his sleep. I waited about 2 hours and Gynok finally popped. This time he dropped the platinum ring!!

One more ring to go!!

I was camping Befallen, July 15th, and my man Gynok spawned. I have seen him spawn 3 times (1 time in old befallen, twice in new) and each time it was in the same exact place. He pop right at the end of the hallway the leads to the first 'room' in Befallen. Once you zone in...follow the hallway and camp right where the hallway ends, he will pop ontop of you. The PH's were almost exactly 30 minutes apart. One was a iceboned skelly and the others were 'Mummies', can't remember their name. They look like the typical WC area mummies.

I'm a 38 shammy now, been camping him off and on for about 5 lvls. I had NO problems camping entire zone with myself and my pet when I was lvl 34. I'd send trusty old Kobobn out randomly to wipe out everything in sight. No troubles at all.

My luck however...Once I got Gynok...he dropped a Copper Ring instead of Platinum...

Guess I gotta waste more days waitin for him...
