After about 2 hours of hunting the gnoll guardsman who pops by the water and wanders between the water and the barrels under the bridge, the Master Brewer spawned and dropped the cask! :)

Hunted another 6 hours, got a couple of gnoll brewers to spawn, no luck. Next morning took me a 2 hours to get second cask from another Master Brewer and then after another hour a third from a gnoll brewer. Whew!

Dropped one today

I now have Planes of Power and I decided to go to Qeynos and then to BB to see if the Brewer's were up. I zoned in to BB and went to where they spawn and the Master Brewer was there. I killed it easily and it had a Cask on it. As a 34 Ranger its not much of a fight but I will stop in now and then to try to get 2 more Casks for the Jaggedpine Cloak quest. While there I do share my buffs with others as I do remember the difficulty here as a new Ranger.

I'm curious if he's changed levels a bit, or simply my level 10 shaman had the bad fortune to run up against the max level for his spawn.

Blackburrow was absolutely empty in the wee hours of Saturday night. My shaman had just come from Halas, where a level 58 shammy had not only been gracious enough to give my entirely-untwinked lvl 10 a Smoldering Brand (darn nice weapon for the level!) but also gave me a sweet set of buffs - HOS, chloroplast, DEX, SOW. Needless to say I was feeling quite badass (despite still being decked in a combo of patched, tattered and regular leather, no jewelry) at that moment... I ran down to the med room, turned towards the water, and gasped as who was standing there? The Master Brewer!

Very red. Sooo red, but I waded in nonetheless. Even with chloro, and HOS and whatever (I was up to 429 HP), he got me down to under a bulb of health before I finished him off. (Didn't help a patrolling gnoll joined in). Was worth a full yellow of exp solo, plus the cask.

It's too bad the cask can't be used as a portible brewing device. That would be sooooo sweet!

His lvl is much lower

I killed him yesterday. He conned blue to my lvl 10 Monk, who gave him a good beating and took his cask : )

You probably killed the gnoll brewer. The master brewer is a bit higher. Myself and a lvl 9 rogue **** him out last night and he conned red to me. The only reason I survived was because a nice cleric gave me a buff which gave me more than 1000 hp's. He hit me for hits up to 32.
Possible spawn spot and quest upgrade
# Feb 25 2002 at 7:37 AM Rating: Decent
Hi, two days ago I was doing a gnoll elite guard hunt in BB and came back to the zone towards QHills to buff a friend's character. Then we suddenly saw the Master Brewer standing right next to me. At level 1, a bit ahead and right from the small tunnel after the zone. It was standing there at the exact spot where always some kind of gnoll spawns, in full health, just standing around. So this may be an occasional or rare spawnpoint for him as well. Fact is, that if someone would have trained him to the zone, he would have started walking back to his original spawn spot, eh? - Naturally I killed the Master Brewer immediately and got the casket to boot! :)

About the Cloak of the JaggedPine quest; The NPC mentions something about that they may 'someday upgrade the cloak, you never know'. My theory is, that this is perhaps a hint towards that there might be some extra stat added to it at a certain level (a level on which people probably have already ditched for a better item?). A bit in the way as some weapons start giving damage bonusses once you improve in level (these are then suddenly listed when you look at the item). Again, it is just a theory. A high lvl Ranger who still has the cloak somewhere in the bank can perhaps confirm or deny this ;)

You have a long wait for nothing. They haven't upgraded the quest since it came out.

Killed master brewer at 11
# Oct 24 2001 at 4:17 PM Rating: Default
I killed Master Brewer with my lvl 11 rogue. My Rogue was not twinked, I had not a single buff. The Master Brewer nor I had any prior dmg to my engaging him. When I finished him off he had barely even scratched me. He very may well be a lvl18 to 20 though and he was just getting bad rolls. I can tell you this...he was very hard to hit and it seemed like I had hit him nearly 100 or more times before he dropped. I got the cask as well...and I am positive that it was the master Brewer as I have witnesses from my guild who were laughing cause they watched me chase him back and forth as he ran...god...I don't even know how long I chased that boy around BB...

There is no way he is lv 18-20. He conned blue to my lvl 16 warrior!
Cask information
# Aug 26 2001 at 11:35 AM Rating: Default
I killed the master brewer once and gat a cask, i have killed the regular brewers about 6 times and have only gatten one cask, the last one i paid 30pp for, gat my cloak, and was very happy. The best thing to do is not set there and camp this guy straight, but rather camp him one or two spawns every time you pass by and hope you get lucky.
