He's KOS, so if you camp the spawn spot it might be wise to make and audio trigger so that you know he has spawned.

I killed him 3 times for 3 toons over the last week. The last was a bard who verified his spawn point (using Highsun) ...

He spawns at 2575, -1800. no placeholder (I watched spawn point for 30 minutes ... nothing else spawned there). His spawn time is unknown, I'm guessing 8 hours, based on other posts and the bloodgill marauder. He immediately moves out so the spawn point is useless.

Use a character (Nec1 Shd2 Pal5 Clr9) with "Sense the Dead" to see if he is up. You only need to be in zone; if the ancient jarsath is up, you'll see him, as the spell detects the closest undead in entire zone, and he is the only undead. If he is up, then go looking (with a tracker or sense the dead). If not, do something else; there is no sense slaughtering drolvargs trying to spawn him.

Haven't found him up yet, but I can tell you that he is not the only undead in the zone. When I cast sense the dead i get a pet of the trooper scale bp guy on target.

If you go to the drolvarg camp at /loc +1570 -1460, he will walk back and forth thru the camp, you can't miss him. He does NOT look like a regular skeleton, he looks like an Iksar skele, with bony thorns from his face.

Tuashar the Wise is spot on (his message appears below). Based on his instructions I went to this loc, and sure enough walking aling the road that bisects FV East to West nearly right in the middle of the stretch.

He has about 4k HP, is more resistant to cold, less resistant to heat, and fights like a monk.

I read some of the posts posting various "spawn locations" and I checked them all out and none of them worked for me. I killed the mobs around them for a good half-hour to and hour at each location and I never got a pop. I logged for the day and came back on tonight and after running around for 20 minutes, he popped for me. Everyone says to check from the drolvarg camp, to the elf outpost and whevever else, but when he spawned he was a pretty far ways SOUTH of the drolvarg camp. I am a necro however and I was spamming Sense the Dead. I was casting it when I was in front of the high elf outpost, so the spell works a far distance if it sensed him way past the drolvarg camp. Hope this helps anyone lookin for him, its a little easier for us Sense the Deaders` :P

Camped this mob for 8 hours today and got nothing ... better luck tomorrow i guess
# Oct 10 2005 at 2:19 PM Rating: Decent
Well after another 2 hours of camping i got him to spawn, When he spawned I tracked him down and used Song of highsun (returns mob to their spawn point) And It was at 727.98, -1403 which is a good ways north of the posted loc, so if your not having luck with him try at "727.98, -1403" which is near the entrance to the new elf outpost, since the darkelves took the old one

for me he is always up, and always a pain. Check near the drovlag encampment just sw of the elf outpost, he is usually wandering there. Never had a problem with his spawn rate, he is always in the way, jumping me when I am taking down drovlags.

I'm just hanging here killing Drolvarg when I saw an ancient Jarsath walking by. It kept going back and forth in front of the Drolvarg Camp House. I was camping and medding on SE side of camp. It conned yellow to my 40 wizzie. Reading all these posts, I really wanted to try to kill it since it's spawn time is so long (according to posts), but sanity tells me it would not have a happy ending. I was there about 8-9 PM as well.

I urge ANYONE looking into the VP key quest and camping the 5 mobs needed to complete the key (besides Trak) Look at my post here ....

Ancient Jarsath here btw is EXACTLY the same as the Skellie mob in DL - an UNGODLY spawn time.
In my eyes, Sony just doesnt want people to enjoy this game in the way it was mean to be explored and enjoyed. There is Nothing rewarding , or joyous about sitting in one spot for 8+ hours on several different quest mobs that are needed to obtain pieces to a key to a zone that also requires a rare dragon kill. Catching Trak is hard enough. The rest of this quest is complete waste of time, money , adventure, and it is a TOTAL joykill. I can only hope that by directing people to my posts , mebbe someone will notice and take heed of the absurdity involved here.

I would also like to clarify that there seems to be Nothing in particular to cause this guy to spawn. So unlike the rotting skellie or the pained soul, you don't even have a boring PH to kill for hours. Slay everything you want in the zone. I don't believe this has any effect on where he spawns. I have killed Red eye jack , i have killed frogloks to make froglegs for the next 5 years , venemous lamprey, basically anything and everything but drixies and pilgrims. Still no sign. ALso using sense the dead about as often as fippy darkpaw opens his yap. Still no skellie.

**edit - gone on 10+ straight hours waiting for this one

** 11 straight hours - no sign.

I used Song of Highsun to gate the Jarsath back to his spawn. It is at neg1383 neg1238 in a small circle of trees.

Ok, this was the best information I have seen. I used it to get him within an hour. Here is the deal. I stood at a hill about -1066, -1317. I kept on tracking using my druid. At around -1383, -1238 around the trees, a Goblin Blightcaller popped. He hasn't moved yet so I get there and kill him quickly. About 15-20 mins later, I saw an ancient Jarsath on track and killed him for the medallion.

I believe the PH pops right there at about 15 min cycle. Just stay at that hill and kill any named and any non-Drolvangs, butterflies or pilgrims south of that spot. Usually those are Goblins or a pirate. Just keep killing until you get him to pop. I hope this helps.

this IS the way....

using this info i went out to FV and ran to loc given as spawn. got there and decided to make a precise point on map as a reference to wander area and slaughter everything. well, just as im finishing my little sidestep dance to get on that exact loc, an ancient jarsath walks up and hits me. pet had him dead before i got over the shock. look no further for info, this strat will get your medallion piece.

Ran to the listed loc point, hit sense undead, bingo! mob was jus a few yards away. This method works.

Correct mob name is "an ancient Jarsath".

Only Jarsath is capitalized, so if you're tracking and looking for capital As, dont.

This is like the AC spawn in SRo. He has PHers near the entrance to the Drolvarg Area. Just kill anything that is not a Drogvarg and it will eventually spawn. Once all but Drolvargs were dead, I started killing them as well to make sure a PHer was not still up. Did not note time when I killed the Skeleton.

Let me just say, I would like some feedback on this post. my name is Kalmic from Bertoxx. And a couple nights ago, I pulled an all nighter at this spawn. Me and a couple guildies were the *ONLY* people in the zone, I was there for 12 hours before guildies came and we made it a totaly of 16 hours, then guildies went to a raid while i stayed there and made a total of 19 hours with no spawn. Some told me i must have been KSed... which isn't possible, i 2 boxed a lvl 1 necro (which was great, becaue they get sense the dead at lvl 1) and spammed sense the dead every 15 seconds. i made a hot button which did sense the dead /who and /ooc Ancient Jarsath is camped, Thanks :) which means every 15 seconds i found out, if AJ was up, and who was in the zone... some say its a random spawn, some say 8 hours some say PHed.. i would have to say it isn't PHed... because i had 3 guildies (SK mage and necro) come and *clear* almost the entire zone for 3 hours straight... and still NO spawn after 19 hours... it must either be a 24 hour camp, or a rediculous bottle necking camp that verant made... no wonder, please post your replies! :)

Ah yes, its Kalmic again... if any of you don't know. Sense the dead is a spell that when cast A. points you in the direction of the closest undead creature in the zone, and B. targets the creature. This *IS* a zone wide spell (it will show you the entire zone, unlike track) Its an effective method to make a lvl 1 necro and just sit him by PoK book and keep casting sense the dead. just make sure no one else comes in the zone.. because then KSing is possible.
Probably has a PH

What most people fail to realize, is that the drolvargs fight with the pilgrims and fairies constantly. So, even tho there may be no one killing mobs in the zone, the npcs do. Look in the lower east area and you can see it for yourself.

Btw, i went to the loc Selc gave below, and found him a bit east from there.

I was foraging in FV, and killing the Drovlarg things by the east ruins, and this thing just aggroed me. Was really a suprise.

I had intended on starting this quest next week. Guess I got a jump start on it. My friend the previous month, before VP revamp occured, had camped this thing like 2 weeks.

I got very lucky. If you a ranger or a druid and run through here...pop in now and then and see if its up. Could be worth it.

Parked my lvl 22 SK on a safe hill by the dog temple to cast Sense the Dead all day for my 65 warrior. Been here seven hours so far and no sign of him. Every few hours Vekis and her pet spawn and her pet shows up when my SK casts so I have to hike over and kill it. On the bright side,my SK got her Divination skill from 10 to 115...

Found him at P559 N1505 @ East side of the zone at about 10pm MST. No track, but used cycle target while running around and that worked just as well. Max 10 min. to find him.

PH info not correct.

I've been in FV at the mentioned locations for 5 hours today slaughtering everything. I've seen 15 Kwinns 4 Red Jacks 3 Halflings and a 20 or so leeches of some form, and the occasional spider or goblin. I've killed em all. Over and over. At 8pm and all damn day. I can not get any of the mobs listed here to spawn the AJS. Just a FYI.
