Gabbie is located in the Gnomish castle. If you are walking in the front, she is located to your right, in a room with 2 other spawns, usually Clockworks.
Gabbie is a caster of sorts.

The best way to get to her is to cross the bridge that's the first left from the window room area. I was using the map from eqatlas, and it was easy to find the way to the front of the courtyard where EXG spawns. Having been the back way, as I guess you could call it, where there's about a million more gnome fights, I highly suggest this route instead.
Anyway, get past the gobbies (by invis, if you're lucky and there are no shammies/wizzies, or just by fighting), and you'll eventually find some more gnomes. There were a few adds at times, but I don't remember there ever being more then 1 to mez. The spawns are also pretty well spaced out, so you should be able to rest up right where you are, until you're ready to move on.
Once you enter gnome country, be aware that EXG can wander this area, so keep your eyes open. This will be a good thing if you can handle it, as she drops the charred guardian shield/ breastplate. She sometimes brings another gnome robot friend, which can make things a bit hectic, so be ready with your mezzes or roots or extra tanks. We got 2 shields and 1 breastplate in 2 hours over here, so don't see her once and think you're safe. :P
So move up slowly but surely, and you'll reach the courtyard. If you peek around the corner before you move, you should always be able to react before the mob does, which is nice. Nothing like "What's over here..." and getting jumped on. :)
When you get to the courtyard, there are 2 spawns on either side of the gate, and oftentimes a wanderer past the iron bars, as well. Kill them. At this point, if Gabbie is up, you'll be able to see "Gabbie Mardoodle begins to cast a spell".
If she is up, get buffed up. Magic resist is essential. We saw her twice. The first time, she came with 1 add, and the second time, she came with 2. She had a DS on both times (as did her companions), so dispel it asap, as it can add up quickly. Her spells hurt a lot, too, so be ready. We didn't have a healer, and the SK does steady but not extremely fast dmg, so I alternately stunned her and runed him. For a blue caster, she had a lot of hits, too.
We killed her and she dropped the cloak (which isn't lore), but I was very low on mana and the SK was low on health. We sit and rest a while, and are talking about pulling the tunnel the way we came to get out, and then we see her casting again. That time she only dropped the quill (if she has it, she'll use it).
We decided to log then, but we could've stayed quite a while. There's two possible drops over here (EXG and Gabbie), and if you want to exp, just backtrack up the tunnel and keep yourself sated on gnomes.
Good luck to all who try her!
Gabbie was up, nuked her, and bam she's got the cloak. Now I feel like the luckiest man on earth.
ZZzzzZZZZZZ /em wakes up.
Damn, we are in 2003, Molten Cloak is even not worth 100pp anymore, and friends/alts/twink even at level 10 have all better.
/em wonders if he won't give the cloak to his pet.
Seems like a reasonably nice newbie dagger with good DELAY and HP bonus. Is that it?
Going rate for this on Stromm is 200p, but everything is way overpriced on Stromm.

When doin such tactics, plz follow this 1 rule: Always do it during the week, and a little later in the night.
Ive done this in upper guk, in fact i worked the entire zone one night, didnt stay on top of all the spawns, but i just went from camp to camp, killing PH's all night, got alot of gear i didnt need, sold it all for cheap, hehe .....
O well...... gona log back on, do a supply run and head back in an knuckle down for a long camp
Sure hope this is more fun then camping Undead Jester in Kurn's, but hey ... sometime the pure insanity of such a log camp, in a zone all alone, can be fun, i prefer the " If it Moves Kill it... " Method=)

She spawned 9 times and i had 9 quills ((((
U can t make her pop more faster ...
Her ph is behind desk .. when CX pop she ll not come (CX pop near desk on left) and another gnomish model CA or CB ll be at her ph.
Her ph's pop time is 20 min.
With my fire pet 44 i just have to heal him and he can take 4 gnomish (1 after one die by hell)

Im a 48 Warrior on Luclin Server. I have been camping Gabbie for two days now, and have only seen her once in this time. I have heard many rumors of how to "help" her spawn there.
One way being to leave the EXG that drops the oil and kill the CWG that roams in and out of the room. ( Unsucessful so far with that )
Another way was to simply destroy all the room pops and leave the roaming alone. ( also unsuccesful at this )
Does anyone know a way to "help" her spawn or am I just in it for the long haul ?
Btw, the cloak is nice, Dropped one and traded it for a Treeweave :p
Warriors are not meant to camp item??? says who ??? :)
To fix it, kill Kobolds in Sol-B... or kill the Kobolds first (for xp if you're in your 40's!) and then go after her.
Just in case anyone was wondering, her spawn point is the rear right spawn in her room (behind the desk)
The only extended time I camped her, I got about 10 ph's, then a quill, then two cloaks in a row!
It is a very boring camp (especially if you are not kos to the clocks, then you have to kill 4 things at least) The time is very well spent clearing the EXG spawn (the wanderer over the lava bridges area) and the Lava Elemental (the wandering clock down by the lava waterfall)
Also close is the Foreman/Predator spawns, at lvl 46 I could run (not invised or anything) from the gnome castle to the secret wall system, passing 4-5 aggro green goblins, without being actually aggoed. If one or two do aggro, just kill them once inside the secret wall, then pull the foreman spawn, and kill the one or two gobs between the foreman and predator. Easy.
Sometimes I cleared the Captain Bipnubble spawn point to, just because I like killing him. (haven't gotten a suit yet boo) This can be tricky solo though, because his ph's are mostly casters (curators suck!) His spawn point is the rear left spawn in the little room upstairs.
Anyway, this is a fun area, most ppl are not kos (just hunt kobs in SOl B if you are) and you can get some half decent items.
And thats how to camp Gabbie/Lava Elemental/EXG/Bipnubble/Foreman/Predator all at once.
