Saw her twice last night. We didn't do anything special to make her spawn, so leave the voodoo dolls at home, guys. :P

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!

One thing I like from time to time is going back to that good ol' SolusekA, and AE all goblins, loot the Fine Steel (you can make quite good cash here if Rathe Mountains is overcamped) and also check the named ones.

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 funny and sad.. until you think about it. You were AEing green mobs for FS loot, then nuked another green mob, one shot kill, got some loot.. and upset because it's not worth anything? People obtaining items in that fashion are WHY it's not worth anything... that and the better items out from the many expansions since then.

Does anyone have the location of her spawn, last night I wandered into the so called "bad" section of Sol A, and even though I'm a 47 chanter, a big bad elemental pounded me into oblivion. Wish I had more hp's :/ Anyways, if anyone has a loc of her spawn that'd be really helpful. Thanx! :)

What is the quill good for? Can it be used in research? Does it have a bonus if you use it that way?

I'd like to find the answer to this question since I just camped her and ended up with about 7 of them.

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.

killed gabby 7 times while camping bipnubble for environment suit. if u go into castle entrance and take the first right door and turn around to face towards front of castle she (or her PH) is the rightmost one of the 2 CWG, usually you will have 2 or 3 PH before she pops. As a 51 monk i can get the lava elemental, captain bip, EXG, gabbie, reckless efreeti and the fire goblin captain all in about 20 minutes. If gabbie is holding a dagger she wont drop the cloak, if no dagger she has the cloak. got 2 cloaks and 5 quils in 30 hours of captain bip camping, but i let a few people who wanted the cloak camp her for about 12 hours of that time seeing as i had a quil and cloak already.

Well, i went here with my 40 iky monky.... not a bad place, kinda like it. Tried to get Gabbie or EXG to pop, no such luck, was there for about 6 hrs, but after reading all these post, looks like im in for a long camp, o well.... ill just do like the one Post did, work several camps.. hehe,

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=)
hehe haha

I hate this zone, I am a lvl 47 druid and I stil get aggroed by those darn goblins, which are a waste of mana. I want this cloak, but after 6 lvls in sol b I am ally with them, oh well another day of crashing factions.

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 ??? :)

# Jun 28 2001 at 3:16 PM Rating: Default
Ok, well this gal is quite easy for a druid if you know what yer doing. Do you remember that lil wind spell way back when that was always resisted and seemed worthless. Well that lil lvl 5 spell, whirling wind I believe works wonders on this gal. I killed her easily at 34. Just combust, when she starts to cast use fury of ait immediately and you'll interupt her, then when she starts to cast again use your wind spell on her, interupt, she cast again, wind her again. By now your fury of air should be back up, use it and repeat. At 34 I had 180 wis and only used about 3/4 of my mana this way. She only took me down about half life and only she only hit me with melee.
RE: Druids
# Sep 26 2001 at 7:25 PM Rating: Decent
Indoor/outdoor. The level 5 wind spell (dd + possible stun) is outdoor, meanwhile the level 34 spell Fury of Air (250dd + possible stun) is indoor OR outdoor (camping AC in guk atm with other comp, verified info). Now, add in a 250 stun dd, root, snare, drones of doom, and imolate, and you have one bloody caster... Also since the longer cast time on Fury of Air, keep all buffs up (including bramblecoat and skin like steel). Of course this is all theory, since I have never even seen this creature... Good luck to you all!
RE: Druids
# Jul 18 2001 at 3:00 PM Rating: Default
Are you sure about that? According to EQatlas, Sol A is listed as an INDOOR zone, while according to CastersRealm, the level 5 spell of which you speak, Whirling Wind, is an OUTDOOR spell.

When you kill her, does it hurt you faction with the merchant that sells the tinker bags and journeyman like boots?

RE: Faction
# Oct 25 2001 at 2:51 PM Rating: Decent
Yes, killing her hurts your faction with that merchant and with all the other Gnomes & Clockworks in Sol-A.

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.

This room spawns every 20 minutes. Gabbie shows up about 1/3 of the time. I've killed her 7 times and got 7 quills. Can be up to 4 spawns at a time, I've only seen her spawn in place nearest maps. PHs vary.

Well I camped her MANY tie on T-Marr and gotten 8 cloaks in total. She pretty eask and with the EXG, Lava and Kindle Spawn it make for good quick cash. One thing is when she spawns ther a 25% chance that she after dying she will spawn again or one after that ad drop the cloak again. I had this happen 2 times and be around for at least 2 others. So always stick around for the next spawn if ya can.
# Feb 07 2001 at 11:37 PM Rating: Default
I have only been camping her for a short time to get the cloak for a friend, but I don't know which one is her PH. I have seen the clockwork cx, the one that drops the clockwork oil stout, but I am not sure to her PH. Any info would greatly be appreciated.

could a 34 shaman with his pet (pet fully buffed of course) take out his lil gal? I want that cape VERY badly, and if i get a 2nd, id love that too =)
# Dec 11 2000 at 4:56 PM Rating: Default
Does anyone think a 31 druid could take her?
# Apr 19 2001 at 10:19 PM Rating: Decent
if i was a druid i would wait until 49+ to do this... verant has casters chain nuke now (bad news for non-pet classes). Necro and mage can deffinately do this at 44+ (a joke at 49+), maybe enchanter can do it at 44+ as well if careful and patient. If you don't believe me then fine... you can try and die... just enjoy your corpse recovery.

# Jan 08 2001 at 11:25 PM Rating: Decent
If you were outside in an open field u could take her easy but you aren't first of all youd have to break into her room and there is always about 4 clockworks you end up fighting at one time so no I wouldn't recomend it. Im a level 47 necro and even I have probelms breaking into her room sometimes and if I get to many at once than i get owned. BTW good luck to anyone on this ive prolly spent 12 hours and only seen gabbie twice and both time she had the friggin quil! GRR...
RE: Level?
# Mar 18 2001 at 9:40 PM Rating: Default
Wow you must not do well. I am a 49 necro and i kill the room easy. best thing to do is run in with steelskin on, have them aggro so pet attacks, then FD. Pet clears em out, yay! i used this to camp the entire zone. so far i have gotten 3 quills, 2 lava potions, 3 obsidian rings, 4 obsidian bead hoops, 1 drake-hide belt, 4 drake-hide leggings, 1 drake-hide sleeves, 2 obsidian shards, 3 kobold-hide boots, 4 foremans tunics, 1 obsidian scimitar, 1 ring of goblin lords, 4 glowing stone bands, 1 platinum dragon totem, 1 gnomish environmental suit, 2 fire crystal staves, 1 frotyh goblin tonic, 1 momento box, 4 turquoise eyepatches, 3 charred boots, 2 plat armbands, and 2 obsidian flamberges. The only 2 things i wanted (molten cloak, impskin gloves) i didnt get =(. oh well, got lotsa cash from FS weapons and loot too.
Easy way to camp her.

This may sound very strange, but I found an interesting pathing bug in order to facilitate her spawn. During the high 30s when I first started camping her I couldn't clear her room, the clockworks were too much for me(I'm a paladin). I tried training her to the zone, rooting her or her PH, zone(at solB zone, very close by) and come back before the root breaks, but that was erratic at best. Well, I found that if you do that, train her out of her room or the PH, they get stuck by the iron bar gate at the front of the castle, and will stand there. Now heres the good part, if you stand right next to her in the bars, neither her room(which is close by) nor the two gnome guards in front of the castle will aggro you, thus you can pick her off solo quite easily. There is a wandering clockwork from the vendor that sells the tinkers bag to Gabbies room, but hes very easy to pick off when wandering between the two rooms. I found her spawn to be very rewarding in that I got a molten cloak on her second spawn after I started using this method, and thus was able to trade for a very nice item. The quill is not very good at all except to maybe a low level rogue. You can always tell if she'll drop the cloak or quill by looking if there is a weapon in her hand, if no weapon its the cloak, if you see a weapon and get the message piercing, then she has the quill. Good luck!

The quill isn't even any good to a low lvl rogue, we can't equip it.

Gabbie is a wizard. She has a dmg shield but its just the piddly one wizards get, and she doesn't have a pet, magician, necro or enchanter.

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.

Rare enough to devote effort to camping lava elemental and clockwork exg at the same time to make up for all your lost time.
