Having only killed him once, I don't know what else he might drop. Obretl is red to a 19, but his pet cons blue.

Obretl drops charred bone chips, which are a component of the Fright Forged Helm quest in Paineel. The helm is AC 11, +2 Str, +4 Wis, -5 Cha, Effect: Deadeye, ERU HUM CLR only.

A really sweet helm, one of the best outside the plains for an Erudite or Human cleric. Too bad us dwarves can't use it. Obretl fears and dots you, as a warning. He cons indifferent, and will tell you "this place is not for the living, get out!" or some such, if you hail him. He spawns at the little temple in the souther edge of the desert. As for rarity, I've seen the AC spawn 6 times while I've fought in South Ro. Obretl has only spawned once and no one in my guild had ever heard of him...

1229, -2204 in South Ro

South east part of the zone. Right before the desert sands turn into grass. Small ruin building. Looks like a stone tower where the top is gone.
There are two spawns in this very small building. The left spawn here seems to be the ph. That is the location I provided. The right spawn is the spot for Modrak Drin.
23 minute spawn timer. Took me about 4 hours of camping him.

Obretl spawned in 2017.

Obretl spawned in Southern Ro undead tower and dropped charred bone ships. It still spawns. Don't give up hope. Took me about 2 weeks logging on once a night and killing place holders. The mob on the left is the place holder. Usually a dry bone skelly, one of the various mummies or a ghoul. The mobs to the right are not needed to kill. The mob moldrak drin spawns there. That should help you find the right spot.

During time camping AC I killed this guy in the tower and I actually destroyed the charred bone chips thinking they were useless.

Didn't realise they were for a good quest, I thought it would be for a rubbish newbie one nobody bothered with.

The Truth about Obretl
# Oct 18 2001 at 1:02 PM Rating: Decent
There is no trigger spawn for Obretl, having killed every single undead creature in South Ro and having Sense the Dead detect nothing at times. The fact is Obretl won't spawn if one of his placeholders in the undead tower are in his place. The spawn time there is eight Norrath hours, and the chances of it being Obretl are /random 1 100. Furthermore the undead there will not despawn, perhaps having something to do with the ancient cyclops at 8 PM( but I must have killed every single type of undead there, from a crypt mummy to a ghoul, so I seriously doubt that's the case unless Obretl himself is who you are suppose to kill at 8 PM, but I sure didn't wait till 8 PM to find out)Having camped him for seven hours, I finally had him spawn when I was about to camp and go to bed. Dropped two bronze daggers and the bone chips you need for the Cleric Quest in Paineel, which I had my human Priest of Bertoxxulous loot. Next stop, Lesser Faydark!

At lvl 46 I ran into him and killed him , never seen him before so what the hey. Drops Char bonechips.. no drop. He must be pretty rare tho was the only time I have seen him in the little undead ruin where a drybone or mummy most of the time pop.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 05 2001 at 3:30 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ok i think this is a rare spawn cause he didnt spawn for 10 hours and i wait the whole time.And i dont want to be called manes for what i think if any of u who read this and have something to say fine just dont insult me if u read this and want to call ne a stupid newbi and that other BS remeber this im not a newbi i got a lvl52 sk and u should keep ur big mouth shut.
obretl is so not rare
# Jun 27 2001 at 8:45 AM Rating: Default
omg... i was trying to get myself an ac ring (i want jboots so bad) and of course was killing whatever popped in the undead tower as it is linked with the ac spawn...

in about 4 hours or so camping there, obretl poped in the tower like 3 times (no ac though grrr).
like everyone else here who camped the ac and saw him 40 thousand times but no ac... obretl is not so much *rare* as triggered. simply kill whatever is in the tower and eventually you will get him to pop. also note i was killing all the undead in the desert and spiders so that may also have something to do with it.

RE: Obretl's PH Discovered!
# Oct 01 2001 at 6:28 PM Rating: Default
"a crypt mummy" is not the ph....its not a unique spawn either. For lack of any better info, i thought I would give this a try. For 4 hours, not a single mummy was left living in SRo for longer then 60seconds (ranger with 200 tracking will easily prove there are more then one "a crypt mummy" up on many occasions). Even after all this mummy killing...I have still yet to see him spawn. I've seen 7 AC pops tho. So either it has a trigger which isnt killed during the mass killings people are doing trying to get the ac to spawn, or its just such a rare chance of him spawning that you can go hours on end without a spawn.

Last night I saw "crypt mummy" spawn in the temple and I saw on track "a dervish cutthroat" with a lowercase "d". All others on track were "a Dervish Cutthroat".

Anyone know more about these two mobs? I've seen the "crypt mummy" on only one other occasion.
He's in the AC pop table

Obretl is a random spawn. He's just rare.

I've seen him twice while clearing the AC phs. He just popped on E'ci before I logged to come check what he was for again.

He pops in the tower, and has a pet, as mentioned.
Random or Triggered
# Jun 14 2001 at 9:22 AM Rating: Default
I can't continue to believe that this is a random spawn, it's just too damn rare. However, I have no idea what the trigger is. I do know it's not triggered by the quest in Paineel, though.

IMO this is for everyone except chanters(hmmm i think i'll mez this mob with the -25 cha...doh) and monks(hmm i'll just keep this 10lbls here) and as for it being just sk good idea, im sure no wis/int(except for chanters) casters would want the 10 int/wis or the 100 mana/hp, and what tank(other than monks) would want a free 10 ac/str/sta to add to their equipment......my solution have everyone except monks/chanters type /random 0 1000....

# May 01 2001 at 4:37 PM Rating: Decent
I sat at the tower killing PHs for 8 hours, logged for an hour to eat, and when I came back I was looking at his corspe where someone had just killed him. He was kind enough to leave the chips since he didn't know what they were for.

Now if I could just find that damned dr00d (2 weeks and counting...)
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 21 2001 at 1:27 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) sure, camping quest MOBs sucks, but 7 HOURS!?! complain to me after you've camped quillmane in SK for THREE DAMN WEEKS (and only saw him myself once)!! whew, ok, I'm ok now.

"people that camp quest mobs like obretl instead of leveling up and getting good items per direct loot from killing highlevel mobs are stupid"

another quote:
"I probably LOST yes I LOST 7 hours so far camping obretl I got no exp no loot"

So.... tell me again, who is stupid?

Killed him today whilst walking around SRo,was blue to me at 29. Quite easy, he dropped 2 carnelians and the charred bone chips quest component.

#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 07 2000 at 10:04 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i too spend hours with my 47 druid tracking both the ac and obretl just to destroy the ancient ring and charred nobes it gives me a sense of AHHHH knowing all you non sow casters will be still paying me to sow you muhahahahahaha
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 16 2001 at 3:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Im a 52nd shaman and I no longer charge for SoWs, haven't since level 20 infact. However, I've looted the AC ring twice and have received 20,000pp in return. It is possible to dual quest the JBoots. I hand in the ring, the other person hands in the rest, they get JBoots and I get more pp than you could ever possibly make charging for SoWs. It gives me great pleasure to see that someone who is destroying AC rings simply to make pp, has in fact destroyed tens of thousands of pp that they could have made, while making someone else happy with JBoots. Kindness is always rewarded, your greed has cost you.
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 07 2001 at 3:52 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Yes, perhaps all us enchanters out there need to boycott giving you clarity, then, eh?
#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 22 2000 at 11:25 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Wow, you really need a life.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 16 2000 at 11:39 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) eheh i am a druid, i camped the AC, just to get my warrior, and necro J boots, but still doing just so others can't get it just for your gain is a gay thing to do, anyway druids should sow free, its not like 40mana is worth a damn
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 05 2001 at 6:02 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) thats one of the reasons I Dont charge ressurections at all BUT for wimpy gimpy greedy treehuggin druids that charge SoW with 1pp and gates with 50pp

There are numerous others who will sow just about anyone that passes by. If I'm not kiting or grouping and have mana to spare, I'll sow everyone in my surrounding area and those who run by (if I can target them and finish the cast before they're out of range).

On occasion they'll throw a few plat my way, which is a nice bonus.

Lias camps da SRo fer days wiv no luck. Den he running to Guk one day and right bump into AC and eat him. After Guk he run north - meet Obretl. Pretty gud luk fer one day. Anyway, Lias kill Obretl on principle and destroy da charred wotsits. No way he letting some lame Erud or Hummie get a cool Helm. Hur! Hur!

Obretl had roughly 600hp, and was green to me at level 36.
