Call Of Stupidity

The fangs are lore items, they can be sold or traded. Having said that I have started my quest:

After getting the quest and turning in the letter etc. My first task was the Burning Sash:

Luckily I was the only player in the zone and I am a 55 ranger, and also had a merc with me. I used cloudy pots / invis until I got to the bats. At that time a level 78 Pally came into the zone looking for a Guano Collector, I traded my services of tracking for help with the imps. The pally pulled all 8 or so of the imps and killed every one of them all but one dropped a burning sash. So it took 20 minutes in Naggy's lair because the Guano Collector was also up.

Second was my trip to lower Guk, this took awhile because I had to fight all the way through the grey undead in lower guk to get to the hand. Luckily he was up, unluckily he did not drop the Adamantite Band after I killed him fast he was green to 55. I waited 23 minutes cause I set the timer, and he respawned. The second spawn he dropped the band so I got out of there.

Third was Mistmoore: I had already gotten Maid Issis tooth from a previous visit to MM when I was level 35, so I concentrated solely on the Butler He was up when I first got to the zone I killed him and he dropped the cape, I spent the next 4 hours in the zone and he never popped again it was every other thing from Ancilles to Willsappers, every 18 minutes. I finally gave up and am camped there. So he was there when I got there and popped 0 times of 13 or so pops after I killed him the first time.

Absolutely stupid if you ask me, first you cant get a level 49 spell until you are level 50?

Second it only does 246HP direct damage, when you got spells at 55 that do 400+ now,

Third, the timer on this Butler and Maid mob is ridiculous for a low spell, and the drop rate for teeth are even worse.

SOE serioulsy needs to reconsider some of these quests and ease up on the player and at least make some of them worth your time and effort, and for mediocre spells the task should be semi difficult, in other words: the Maid and Butler should spawn regularly every 18 minutes with no Place Holders, and drop teeth every one of five pops. No one is going to make a fortune off the drops from these mobs so there is no reason not to change this quest to help out level 49 rangers. Also make the teeth no drop to force the quest, this way the player actually needs to do the quest, but knows that it can be done in a few hours not days.

so i just spent over 30 hours in castle mistmoore farming this butler and his counterpart, maid issis... the butler seemed to spawn a lot more often than the maid... i was able to get the fangs to drop off of him in about 18 hours... the maid however, was not as quick to give it up...

I recently helped several guildies with this while the MM residents were displaced to LFay.

The butler and the maid both spawned as either the DE Robed version or the vampire version. At least for us, only the DE Robed versions ever drop the fang. The vampire versions never once dropped a fang.

Yay! I am level 58, and I get to sit around killing green mobs for 15 hours. Who wants to join me?
Just buy the damn fangs!
# Sep 18 2004 at 5:28 PM Rating: Decent
Don't be cheap! I just went out and bought the fangs for 1pp! After spending way over 30hours camping him!!! Seeing him spawn, maybe 1 outta every 3 spawns, and NEVER having the fangs is retarded! These sort of timesinks (Ragefire, Aegis of Life, etc) are the main reason EQ just pisses me off. Does SOE really think that putting in elements like this in their games they are attracting players?!

The maid was sorta the opposite. Only saw her spawn 3 times in ALL of that time. But she did drop her fang everytime!

BTW, with only self-buffs I easily solo'd that area and the avenging caitliff area (still waiting for him to goddamn spawn now arrrghh) at level 47.

15+ hours into camping this dude. Killed him 4 times with just the cape dropping. Meanwhile i've killed Maid Issis about 12 times and left 4 of her fangs to rot.

This is WAY out of whack - and you cant convience me otherwise.
he has two graphics
# Feb 07 2004 at 2:08 PM Rating: Decent
I am camping the butler at this moment and i can tell you he has two graphics one like the vampires and one like the dark elf. the vampire spawns at night and the dark elf spawns during the day.
can he be soled

Is it possible to solo this guy and the maid as well i am at 53 and i would like to get this spell. Most everything in there is green to me but i am more worried about adds overwhelming me.

My friend, a lv55 druid, was able to single pull all the mobs for me. Well, except for the kitchen, where I camped. There were no wanderers in the halls.
At last got the fangs

Probably camped the maid and butler for a total of 12+ hours.

Butler spawned at night (1am game time), and dropped just the fang, the previous spawn was also night EQ time, and he dropped the cape.

Now just to hand them in =/

I have camped him for a good two hours, the first time he dropped the fang, which is LORE only, the Maid's as well. Their PH's can be either a gargoyle, or any of the DE's that spawn in the corner (right hand side for butler, maid is on the left). I got to the maids room and she was alive and dropped a tooth, the butler spawned undead form and dropped the tooth on the first time as well. So really, the form I don't think would matter or I was really, really lucky. Good luck to you budding rangers for their Call of Flame quest.

Many mobs got upgrades in graphics at one point in time or another. the one on the right is the butler before the newer Vampire graphic was given to him. While the Vampire graphic might not be the newest, it is newer than the original, wich is the one to the right.

I camped him one night for about 3 hours and only had him pop once out of 6 possible spawns. Only dropped the cape...DOH!! He or his placeholder are on a 23-25 min spawn timer. During that time had everything from Willsappers to Dark Sacrificers spawn as placeholders...So the Butler has various placeholders depending on the time of day in-game and is a random spawn as far as i know. The one time he did spawn it was at night around 1am gametime. Does Harmtouch for around 300+ so bring Magic Resist gear. Mobs around room can heal and buff through the walls. Hope this helps.

Well, he seems to be a random spawn. We had a group in his room last night. He spawned 4 times and the Maid spawned once last night in a 5 hour camp. Neither dropped the fang. The weird thing was that the Butler spawned during the first 3 hours of the camp. The last two hours he never showed up.
odd drop

Hope you guys like the pic, camped the freeking butler for almost a week trying to get the fang, then I get 3 in a row /shrug. I snaped a few screens before one of us could kill the other since i knew this sight needed one badly. Butler seems to be more common than the maid, the cloak is DIRT COMMON, i've gotten like 9 now. Although this can't be true, it seems to be that when you camp the butler the maid pops with her fang all the time, and vice versa (running gag in MM, when you camp the butler, you talk to some one in shout or ooc about how much you would really like to kill the maid, and how you hope the butler doesn't show) OH, almost forgot, he is a SK and Harm Touches for about 370ish

EBW is for the Ranger level 49 Ranger Call of Flames quest FYI . it's a spell that does 260 some odd damage with a fast cast time and a higher mana cost
Damn Bug! (I think)
# Aug 16 2001 at 3:07 AM Rating: Decent
OK, for some odd reason he didn't spawn for us all night. My guild was on a raid there and not once did we ever see him. We pulled the entire castle all night and he never poped once. We did get the maid about 5 times but never him. Has anyone had this problem latly?

I'm slumming in MM and I see this guy. Well as I was down to about 60% health and he HT'ed me for 381 I feign.

Door closes. I open it up and look because I haven't seen the message "Butler Syncall casts a spell," in a couple of minutes.
