Info is still correct, took about 10 PHs before nesting rat spawned.
Loc 7

The Nesting Rat is in location 7 on the EqAtlas map. I camped there for ages killing the three rats whenever they appeared. I kept seeing Giant Rats and Cubes spawning that conned Blue to my Lev 5 and I killed them all. I must have killed 50 rats before the Nesting Rat finally spawned and I was able to get the Golden Locket with Char +3 on it.

Can someone please tell me the exact loc of this spawn? I think I may know where it is, but I am not sure since I have never seen either these rats or the Droscoe person of whom you all speak.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

There are three placeholders in the Drosco room for this mob...all large rats, and they're arranged in a semi circle of three facing the door...if Drosco is still alive, he's in the middle of them facing the door as well...basically, kill the large rats, and sometimes a nesting rat will spawn instead...in a bit more than an hour or so, I obtained around 8 of the necklaces...the necklace drops off of every nesting rat (as far as I can tell) as well.

Happy Hunting!

Im down in the aquaducts and cant find my way around have found a room with sharks and two guys that show up red though. And one room that had a pet.

If there is a general way to get there from a general Aquaduct entrance please let me know

i wonder who in the world at Verant thought of a "nesting rat" as the creature you'd get a locket from?

I just think of the rat as something like a mockingbird, grabbing shiny things to put in its nest. Either that or some enchanter's illusion spell gone horribly wrong =)
Locket Pricing

On a good day in EC, you can sell one of these to lvl 10-13 chars for about 5-10pp. Thats how I usually made money for spells.
Locket Sells for

Golden lockets sell to merchants for about 4gp and some silver.. I have sold most of mine for about 8gp to 1pp... all races and all classes can where it.
The locket

How much is it worth? What classes and races can use it?

I camped these for a while, they spawn like 1 in 3 spawns of the 3 rats there.

The golden locket is not lore, so i ended up with 10 golden lockets when i headed to fp, and got most of them sold (i was camping 3 different spawns down there for money for several hours)
