Lava elemental was a no-show until I started killing clockworks. Killing the clockworks does give a negative hit to factions:

- Miners Guild 628
- King AkAnon
- Gem Choppers
- Solusek Mining Co
- Merchants of AkAnon

My personal opinion is that it is better to camp the blazing elementals instead unless you're going for the hunter achievements. No faction hit for them, but it will take longer. They are easily AFK-camped if you are of sufficient level that the mobs are trivial to you.

Fire Elementals vs Lava Elemental

I have heard arguments both ways and my take on it is: the Lava Elemental has a roughly 2 day spawn timer, which means you can kill the wandering clockwork ( spawn timer 19 minutes ) as often as you like and he may or may not spawn for hours if not days, depending on the time of the last time he was killed.

On the other side of the coin the Fire elementals spawn every 20 minutes three of them, and while the Power of Fire is uncommon on them they do drop it, so you get a one in three chance every 20 minutes that one might drop. I have heard mages say thet they have killed these elemenatal for 5 days roughly 3 hours of playing each day and nothing, then go to the lava room and kill the clockwork one time and were lucky enough to spawn the Lava Elemental.

Either way you are going to have to grind it out for this one, on my Mage on Zek I killed the regular Fire Elementals and on the second round aproximately 20 minutes after killing the three elementals the third one dropped it, so I consider my self very fortunate, now this mage on Bertox, I am in the same room however I have only killed one round of elementals and had to log, no drop for me the first time.

I will check it out tonight and see how it goes, if I find that I am killing these things over and over maybe try 5 spawns about 100 minutes or so, and they don't drop it I might go and see if I can get the lava elemental to spawn. However maybe just maybe I will get lucky again.

I got the Power of Earth on the first Fearie Guard I killed so that was kinda lucky so we will see how it goes.

I had lava elemental spawn 2 times within 2 hours so that theory can be declined now

The exact spawn point of this mob can be found on the map at EQAtlas Here:

Room #4, called the lava elemental room. The Number 4 on the map is on the east side of the lava stream in the very middle. The Lava Elemental spawns on the exact souuth side of that lava stream. It has a clockwork PH. Just kill the PH and evvery 19 minutes you have a chance at Lava E spawning.

Loc of spot is Neg 147.59, Neg 947.92.

the one locked door in the castle you come to can be "opened" by trying to push an Eye of Zomm through it.

To go through th area around room 4, you will need to duck if you are tall, like an Erudite.

Good Hunting mages.
Lava Ele.

Camping this for my mge epic 1.0 as many have in the past. On the 4th spawn the Lava Ele. poped but he did not drop the PoFire all he dropped was the potion. On the 5th spawn of the blazing ele.'s I got the PoFire to drop woot. Now on to the next camp =/.
Clockworks Room
# Feb 16 2008 at 6:47 PM Rating: Decent
The clockwork room is at /loc -162, -950.

If you nuke the wanderer when it paths past the south passage, it comes by itself; the aggro range on the rest of them was not so great that they added at any point.

Now I have to go work on faction for the number of clockworks I've destroyed. ::Sighs::

Read back through posts and tried sending pet after wandering Gnome. Incidentally there are:
(3) CWG XA (male)
(1) CWG XB (female)
(1) CWG MA (female)

The MA wanders around the room. the XA's and XB did not move. When my pet attacked the MA gnome, all 5 flew over and attacked us both, at least 1 is a healer. How do you get the lava elemental to spawn?
Others attack when you attack PH

Read all the notes about camping the lava elemental, and started camping the clockwork gnomes. Maybe they changed the PH's faction or something, but here's what I know. There are 5 clockwork gnomes, one in each corner, and one that wanders a bit. If you attack the wandering clockwork, ** the others will attack you**. They attacked me twice. That also lowers your faction 5 x more, as a gnome, I think I'll stick with the blazing elementals.

Took me about an hour to fight my way back to the fire elemental pit with a 40 mage. Fire elemental was Dark blue to me, and went down easily with a buffed pet. PoF dropped on the first kill.

Aug.10.2004 I have a 49 mage and I'm down in the lava elemental pit. The way that they have now fixed things 2 direct dmg hits with Shock of Swards kills the place holder and none of the other mobs will attack you when the ph is pulled. I didn't even bother to have the pet out because the guy is a wimp. Also have killed the lava elemtal two times today after killing 3 place holders the other second one spawned in. Between the two lava elementals it only took about 1 hour and 30 min. So far I have gotten Lava potion, and the Runed lava pendent, so hopefully the next kill will get me the PoF. Good luck all. And no I'm not twinked it's just that I had virtue on and the PH didn't even do more than 100 dmg to me in all it's hits combined and the same with the lava elemental, but I started and finished with the Shock of swards dd. :) Good luck.

Spawn Time
# Mar 16 2004 at 12:08 AM Rating: Decent
After spending about 12 hours camping this guy and not having him spawn ONCE, I petitioned, assuming something was wrong. As quoted by the GM who responded to me, "The spawn time for that particular mob can be anywhere from one hour to one week." I have not verified this (and GOD I don't want to) but this is what I have been told.
Did OK

I don't know whether I was really lucky, but the Lava Elemental spawned on the second cycle, and dropped Power of Fire the first time, total time in the dungeon was probably about an hour :). I did have a problem looting the corpse though, took me a couple of minutes to manage to get it to open up.

Light blue at 51, and an easy fight: set the pet on it and then one nuke and it was down.
Camping for POF

In the lava elemental room, there are 4 static clockworks. they're flanked one on each corner of the room. The Place Holder generally doesn't move around much but you can tell it apart easily from the others as it does not occupy one of the corner spots.

Just keep killing the PH (a type of clockwork model) until the lava elemental spawns in its place. My 51 earth pet soloed it easily.

At level 56, I did not get any adds from the other clockwork gnomes in the room.

The Place Holder spawns every 19 minutes. This was a long camp for me unfortunately. But eventually it did drop my Power of Fire.

Good luck mages!
