Guide to Spawning Zahal the Vile and Regis the Reverent

- Bind yourself at the spawn location of Regis (1350, -1550).

- Make sure that The Silver Griffon is not up. He is a placeholder for Zahal. This is a level 42 mob that is resistant to runspeed debuffs. If you cannot kill him, try training him to the Guards at the South Karana Zone. The Guards at the Tower near the gypsies are not strong enough to kill him.

- Kill all the undead at (-3205, -2137). They must all be dead before the first respawn pops or it will not trigger the spawn for Zahal.
Once they are killed, cast Sense Summoned. This will detect if Zahal or The Silver Griffon are up, who instantly spawn if it is successful.

- If it is the Silver Griffon, repeat step 2 and 3 until Zahal spawns.

- Zahal spawns roughly around (-1800, 200). He did con red to me at 26, however I was able to kill him with Dismiss Undead (23 Undead DD spell) and Root technique. This is waste of mana however, because all of your dps will be needed for Regis after. Just run Zahal to the Tower Guards where they will make short work of him.

- Once Zahal is dead, cast Gate and return back to your Bind point where Regis should be up. He is a healer with a pretty extensive mana pool, so using abilities that have a Stun are very useful for him.

This method is pretty much confirmed for me. After 2.5 hours, I was able to get 3 Regis spawns for the quest items.

Extra note: the mobs at the undead camp seem to be split into 2 clumps of enemies. Each clump is on a timer (~2min) and the mobs spawn together. I don’t know if it was just coincidence. But I had better luck spawning Zahal when I let the whole camp repop before wiping it.

I rather doubt the accuracy of this method. I have spent a lot of time in this zone trying to follow this guide and never seen it work. Perhaps it is a method on your server for some reason, but it doesn't on Test server, Drinal Server and Tunare server.

In order to mark the in game map for my time on the Progression Servers I got on my 34 ranger (Nameless) and started marking the NPCS. After reading here the info abou Zahal, I also marked the supposed spawn point around +1500, -1500 (far north, up on the slant that marks the farthest north boundary of zone. After that I decided to run down a bit east of the Gypsy camp and set my tracking to "normal", which to a Ranger means that as mobs spawn they will appear at the top of the list. No sooner was I parked east of the G camp where the path takes a turn NE towards the EK zone, than Zahal the Vile appeared on my track - I did not mark the time in game but it was darkeneing skies so had to be evening maybe at or after 6 PM game time. I mention this because there was no one else in zone but my ranger and that might or might not be relevant. I hit TRACK and had to face south and west a bit. Yep - Zahal was south of the tower.

Now I had SOW on but by the time I was south of the tower on the high-rise area the tower is on, and right near the part where that rise gives way to a downward slope to the south, then I caught sight of Zahal (as a troll) coming UP FROM THE SOUTHWARD AREA on a northward track that seemd to me to be that he was heading north by north-west. If he were actually heading on a true northerly path he would come very close to Zanussus waaay up north. Anyways his path was approximately due north, maybe on a north by north-west angle.

Killed him, got the guts. I killed him at location -1382, +268. At this spot, if you face true north, you wil be looking at a tree, and see the backside and southern face of the tower itself, and the NPC Guards right shoulder at the front of the tower. On track at this spot I could get Zanuusus, but not Tal Stoutheart who is closer to the +1500, -1500 spawn point noted in another post here.

I did not get the EXACT spot that Zahal spawned. However, this description should hopefully give some prospective people a slightly better chance at finding Zahal.

Now, following the discussion about Regis and that he will spawn as soon as Zahal is killed, I started running north by north-eastward towards the +1500, -1500 spawn point and guess who appeared on track? Regis the Reverent. And funny thing, he wound up standng on eactly +1500, -1500.

I hope this description will help many. It may be I only found 1 area close to a spawn point for Zahal, but I hope it helps.

I was going through N. Karana collecting light stones to turn in at the camp when I saw this ugly troll stroll through the camp. He con'd red to me, so I beat feet a bit backwards and watched the oddest thing happen.

As he passed one of the merchants (don't remember the name, one of the female chanters), he turned around as he passed her and started attacking her. She just mez'd him I believe and he just sat there next to her the entire time I was hunting lightstones. Everytime he came out of it, she just mez'd him again. From what I saw, this guy seems to have an amazing regen rate.

Are there two??

Are there two Zahal the Viles?? One ghoul and one troll?? If not then his loot table is contradictory. How can you get necromancer blood from a troll, when trolls can't be necromancers??
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

If you notice the picture of the troll has a blue name meaning that he's a player with a title.

I had a friend who was Tawro Icequake for a while.

I killed this guy with my level 20 twink druid; Charmed a griffenne, buffed it, DS'd it, and chain healed it. Ghoul started to run just as I ran oom.
post-patch spawn

My 40 warrior was wandering NK after the last patch, had been in SK looking for the undead cylops. I saw zahal for the first time (and I've spent a LOT of time in NK) just crossing the path from the gypsy camp/guard tower to the spires. Died quick and easy with no real damage to me - didn't realize about him kicking off the other spawn - but will look for it next time there's a patch. I'm startin to love the morning after a patch - all the rares seem to pop )

any one know how to get him to spawn? or it is a time frame limit or both?
Sooo easy

The max I saw him hit was 50. WEAK. And he had oh 1000 hp. Lol I can nuke for 253 so I got him and he dropped a bag of troll guts didn't know what to use them so I destroyed him.

#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 17 2002 at 2:54 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I was medding by the stone bridge in NK this evening, when some guy shouts that he's training Zahal to the spires. So I get up and go into the bridge structure, thinking that I'd be safe with the guards around if the guy does pull Zahal there.

I would question his level, I'm a level 39 druid, and he's still dark blue to me.. pretty easy kill by rooting and dot, but I wouldn't want to melee him for fear that he'll ghoul root me (which he has done before,and it almost killed me) I've killed him about a dozen times, and have had the belt drop 4 times... now if I could only find someone to buy them so I can clear up that space.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 02 2002 at 11:59 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Don't know why, but I killed this guy on the Povar Server yesterday right near the Druid Rings while I was waiting for a port. He aggroed on me and I made quick work of him. He dropped the Troll Guts and a Rune of something and around 6 plat. Weird he was in East Karana.
Finally got him
# Sep 11 2001 at 2:54 AM Rating: Default
Me and three other friends have been camping him for some time, to no avail. Finally tonight, no one else was camping him. We knew the exact time he died and waited for four hours. After four hours no pop, so I went by myself to kill of the undead at the obelisk. The instant I dropped the last undead, he popped by the guard tower. I don't have the exact coordinates, but it was on the southeastern portion of the hill, right at the base. So, because of that, and other posts I've read, I think his spawn point is a little random.

And for those just looking to get this guy killed so you can go after Regis, simply train Zahal up to the guards at the guard tower. They'll make quick work of him. Then you can go after Regis at full health and mana, instead of a long battle with Zahal followed by another one with Regis.

Fortunately, we dont have to kill Zahal the Vile at all. All 3 times i killed Regis (minus one where i was KSed by a werewolf hunter), i never killed Zahal, though i Sensed him everytime.

Simply stand in view of Regis`s spawn point (writen below, if not, its right by Pos1500 Neg1500), use Sense the Dead every minute, and Zahal will eventually be your target, instead of a ghoul or skeleton.

Once, as someone else was camping Regis, Zahal died yet Regis did not spawn immediately. He spawned about 5 to 15 minutes later. All other times he spawned immediately after Zahal`s Death.

The spawn time, is more than 4 hours, as mentionned below. It is less than 4:30 though.
It is very simple. This camp cant last more than 5 hours. Unless some werewolf hunter KS you. Kill Regis as soon as he spawns, if possible.

I solo'ed him as a lvl 33 cleric, and had about 5m left after the fight, probably not even enough for an undead nuke. At 34, with the new undead spell, this fight should be doable, solo, by anyone.
Zahal's spawn point

Finally finished the darn thing today. Must admit most cleric quest armor is easy aside from a freakin' spawn you have to wait for, in this case, Zahal the Vile. I'm a 52 ranger with 198 tracking skill, so it pretty much covers the entire zone and with /tracksort set at normal, the tracklist shows the most recent spawns on top of the list.

With this in mind, I parked myself in the North part of the zone, just North of the gypsy camp where I was told he usually hung out by some shakily reliable source. From there, I started chacking track every minute or so. After about an hour and a half, there he was, finally, Zahal the Vile. I ran right to him and was very surprised to find him at the druid ring, the lil bugger spawns at the undead ruins, and not in the North part of the zone as I had been informed, he does head there after a while however, but if you want to make sure to get your paws on him first, I'd recommend parking your behind at the ruins instead.

The rest of the quest is easy, I hope this proves helpful to some.

Spawn rate

Zahal spawns every 4 hours like clockwork just as someone here said; he spawned the first time at 9:33pm and spawned at 1:33am the second. My tactic for finding him was sitting at Regis's spawn point and using sense dead. Normally I would pick up the zombies all the way south of the druid ring. Once Zahal would spawn I'd be turned to him. Zahal the Vile AND Regis the Reverant would be too much for me to kill by myself at 41 but I had help once in exchange for a resuscitate the first time and a couple of guildmates the second time ranging from a couple of high teens players to a 21st and 30th level and they were killed with ease. SoW also helps to get back to Regis' spawn point quick. Not sure but the Hunters might spawn 1 hour before just below Regis' spawn point because while I was sitting there doing nothing they spawned at 12:33am before the second spawn (and despawned a few minutes after)

it doesn't matter who kills zahal, regis will still spawn in the NE corner of the zone. pull regis eastward away from the werewolf hunters because they like too kill him too. give the guts and 5pp to sansa nusk in the queynos bard guild and the strings from her to fabien in freeport.

UGH what a horrible spawn rate!
Went into NK last night to hunt these guys for a new bracer =)
UGH at least a 4 hour spawn rate! Regis died around 12:45 am and did not re-spawn til almost 5:15am on my server, Erollisi Marr.
Thanks to the kind person there I got what I needed!!! Don't fight him Lom!!!

Its for scaring trolls with. Whenever you bring up a trade window with a troll and put this in it it casts fear on him and he runs until he zones. He has no control over it. :O)
