a coerced penkeeper  

a rare creature

Uploaded July 28th, 2019 by Drewinette

The penkeeper can be found in two separate spots in Dalnir.

The two places this mob spawns is the "Statue Room" and the "Crusader Room". Be aware these two camps are separated by a 1 way wall forcing you to zone out on the 3rd floor to go back to the statue room.

The two places this mob spawns is the "Statue Room" and the "Crusader Room" they would be room 9 and 4 on this map - http://www.allakabor.com/eqatlas/dalnir3map.html
Be aware these two camps are separated by a 1 way wall forcing you to zone out on the 3rd floor to go back to the statue room. Best to do this camp with a box and camp both spots.

I gotta say, after spending about 80 hours camping the Raster in Lower Guk, I'm sick and tired of stupid timesinks for quests in EQ. Been spending about 7 hours in the Crusader room for this guy for my Shackle of Steel, and I'm getting right ticked off.

But I guess EQ knows that if they put in long camps, people will camp them, and thus pay more for playing their game a longer amount of time /sigh

And as I type this, the penkeeper spawns lol. Dropped a FS sword and the key.
2 spawn points

Been camping the crusader room at 41.. looks like the PH is on a 12 minute spawn, and I only rarely have to deal with a wandering follower or believer. Pretty easy camp so far, but I'm not looking forward to running for the zone on my way out :-P

crusader room best for spawn

the first lvl is the hardest i felt being there casters and chain nuke, after that there pretty much spread out as to easly kill them,camped the blacksmith room for 2 hours and no spawn so i decided to try camping the crusader room,when i got to crusader room there he was pickin his nose in the corner,i suggest bringing at laest one more person caster if possible you dont want mobs running off on you it may get ugly at times
Jumping down

Just a small note to all that try to solo this part of the quest when jumping down from 1st to 2nd floor move to the NW corner if uninvised or invised. There can be a Nec or SK with an undead pet here and that is the least populated area in that room. When dropping down from 2nd to 3rd try to face W so you are going into a room where you can make a stand.

What would the minimum level a Monk ought be while attempting to camp this guy in the farthest room? (Past the bloodied wall) I ran in here like an idiot at 42 and got whapped up in that very room. I would have solved the CR easily with an invis potion had I not been flat broke, thanks to a bazaar venture the day before. Anyways I went in more than i came out alive and eventually a guildie got on thier main to clear the floor and help me out. I made an anology in afterthought of that that Dalnir was quite like hell.

Anyways, could say a 50 monk(horrible in the AC, im at 47 and ive got like... 800 something atm. Wu and a fist as weaps.) be able to camp this room efficently(be able to take out all possible pops...)? Or should I wait longer than such?

Did this day before yesterday with my 46 monk. FD ran all the way up to the second spawn point (near the river), only had 2 fights, one nibbler that wouldn't drop aggro, and an imprecator(?) that was in my way. Dropped the gobby got the key, and ran and FD'd outside the overseer room. The run out is a pain in the butt, lost 1100hp running thru there, due to getting chain stunned, and fd breaking continually (lots of nasty casters =/).

Good luck
Penkeeper Camp

I camped this guy for about 2 days. First day i camped him for about 5hrs with no luck in the spectral crusader room. The next day (Sat 10-5) i camped him in the blacksmith room for about 10+ hours, was about to leave when he spawned. The crusader room is the easiest of the camps, you only have to deal with one room pop and one wanderer. The blacksmith room is abit more of a pain, there are 4 room pops in there and one wanderer. The problem is when the room pops are casters. Me being a 52monk i almost got killed in there (got cocky, stormed room, resists were debuffed by a shammy mob, and got nuked for about 150-250 per round. Its easy to split room thou, kill the wanderer thats in the hallway outside the blacksmith room then proceed to single pull the room pops to their death. The PH mobs are on a 12 to 15min timer. And the key is NOT "no drop", so it can be bought if ya wanna cough up some money. Hope this helps my brothers and sisters.

Oh yeah

Been here for 3 days now too, looking for the robe... /cry
2nd spawn point.

I've been in Dalnir for god knows how long. I've had about 10 Bamboo Sticks, 2 Robes of Dalnir, 2 Tattered Arm Wrappings, Grave Sandals, Fighting Baton, Tattered Tomb Shroud, Sap of Piety, Worm-eaten Gloves, and Wand of Pain. Have killed the Penkeeper about 30 times(no lie) in the room past the first half, which leads me to believe that the robe is more common in the harder part of the two. The only things I've seen drop on him are the lame nickel key and sarnak enforcer.

FYI, if the Tomb Shroud drops, you'll know because instead of the iksar necro wearing his newbie pink robe, he'll be wearing what looks like a Robe of the Foci, only greyish in color.

Stats on the shroud aren't all that bad.. Looks neat tho, I collect robes(hence my reason for being here) and so I plan on keeping this one.

Can you solo at 47?
# Jan 19 2002 at 4:16 AM Rating: Decent
I soloed about 90% of this zone earlier today, all except the dining room( had like 8 Kly in there and the adjoining rooms, very tough to break spawn) and the Kly himself ( couldnt find him) so to answer your question: yes a 47 mage can solo up to this mob. Just have to be smart about it and slow pull your way there. Be safe all and cya in game =)

Eh, I remeber back in the day when Velious wasnt out yet. This penkeeper was great fun to kill for my 45 Magician Gnimmish D'jorn if any of ya Eci Folk member me. (A shout to typpin) Zehram a 47th necro and I always beat on this poor fellow, aswell as doing the Vis dagger quest for him. It was fantastic fun :) And yes if your a 45+ mage you won't have any problem killing him.
# Oct 05 2001 at 1:05 PM Rating: Decent
Being a level 47 Mage, does anyone know if I'd be able to solo the whole zone? Or at least get to this guy?

Thanks =)
RE: solo?
# Oct 14 2001 at 3:06 AM Rating: Default
You probably won't be able to solo the whole zone..however using Levitate and invs you should be able to get to one of his spawn points and clear the room. I'd suggest the 3rd level near the river/pond area. I have camped this considerably as a 42 ranger with a 40 druid friend.
So sad

A mage named Grento on Rallos Zek gave me this for free (also tried to give me that Sacrificial Dagger 3WIS 3INT but I already had it) because i was the only enchanter around and he didn't want to go to the trouble of selling it. Awesome robe, everyone thinks you look cool in it...

Then a gnome wizzie pked this off me tonight. I was harassed by multiple mobs and when I zoned out of Dalnir, the Moollko was, and his nuke wiped out my remaining 30hp real fast. Came back and lo and behold my robe was gone. Moollko is going down.
Easy way to camp him by yourself

If you happen to be there and the room gets Wild because of the 2 spawns, when the spawn by the door spawns a nibbler that doesn't aggro, leave him. We found this out the other day and it made for a MUCH safer experience. Part consisted of 30 monk 26 ench and 26 druid.
How I hold this camp:)
# Apr 30 2001 at 7:29 AM Rating: Default
Im a Monk of the 44th season and have been camping this for the last couple nites. I have to fd about 10 times to get to the room with the broken bed. Once I get to this room If there are 2 mobs I can pull one mob if I just let the mob see me and come after me. If it is a invoker be prepared to take a lot of damg. If its one of the shaman klys get rdy for a long fight. And they all run so be prepared to chase them. Once the room is taken I can easily hold the room. There is a spawn in the corner that has the peenkeeper, sk guy, and the necro, or any random kly. Then there is a spawn by the door. When the mob starts to run after you have done enought damg he will have to pass through the door. There is some wierd bug in Dalnir and the mob will get caught up in the door for 5 or so seconds. This gives you enough time to take him down without training. The worst part about everything is if your low on health and the invoker spawns. NEver fd if your fighting him he will just continue to nuke. So far I have not died yet. My loot so far is just 2 sarank enforcers but im hoping for more.

-Have fun wanfu monk of the 44th season on Morrell Thule

Btw, what lvl is this creature found on? Can't seem to find on EqAtlas maps

i want this
# Feb 27 2001 at 11:12 PM Rating: Default
ok, i want this robe. i currently have an o robe, but im only lvl 29. will be at least 35 when i try for this, but is that too early? i once tried to camp the priest of najena with a group, didnt last 3 minutes up there... although no spawns but the priest up there, i think pet pulled lots of stuff on me. my main concern is me NOT DYING. what lvl should i wait to try for this? what lvls are the things surrounding it? what are the chances that i can singley camp it at 35 or 40 being a mage? i cant take much dmg, so this is important. is there a safe place to sit around here? do giant mobs spawn at once in this room?
Nickel spawn rare?
# Jan 31 2001 at 3:43 PM Rating: Decent
Is the nickel key a rare drop, common or uncommon?
RE: Nickel spawn rare?
# Dec 17 2001 at 4:09 PM Rating: Decent
as far as ive seen the key drop every time in maybe 10 times killing him yielded 10 keys which i destroyed, a few fs weps one robe of the foci and quite a few things from the ph's the coerced revenent was a fight for my life tho solo as a 36 ranger, pretty good gear ) if i levitate, get an invis and have atleast one invis potion on me to get out i run in drop down to pool room, straight across pool room, fall thru the false floor to level 3, head to the broken crypt, crawl thru the one way door, go up the ramp and the first room to the left has one spawn in it this is the ph for pen keeper, one wondering kly that pops in room every so often, and a goo out in the water outside that usually can be avoided, getting a non aggro nibbler on the wandering kly spawn helps sooom much i belive time rate on spawn is exactly 12mins every 5 or so ph id get a penkeeper )
just my personal exp.
as a 36 ranger this was tough so recomend being a bit higher and a melee without snare will be very difficult considering so mant nearby mobs its dangerous to even let the kill get out of the room
Nickel Key

The nickel key is one of three pieces needed for the Iksar Monk Shackle of Steel quest.
Spawn Issue
# Nov 22 2000 at 1:14 PM Rating: Default
The thing with this camp is that the Penkeeper is a rare spawn and the robe is one of his rare drops.

His PH's can be any Kly, the Cusader, or that Iksar Necro guy. It makes for a long wait, because it is totally random as to wich MOB will spawn. Fortunately it's only about a 10-11 minute respawn in Dalnir, so you can at least excpect to have a chance for him to spawn about 10 min after you kill his PH.

I have seen 3 Penkeepers spawn in a row, and waited as many as 6 hours between his spawns. Fortunately his PH's also have rare drops such as the Tattered Tome Shroud, and the Bamboo Bo Stick. So at least while you camp this guy for your robe you can pick up some rare items to sell.

Good Luck

Oh yeah... you will know that he has the robe if he doesn't spawn with a weapon in his hand. If he spawns with a sword, then it's just FS and if he spawns with a club, then it's the Sarnak Enforcer.
Lvl Range is wrong

Lvl range is wrong again for this mob.
At lvl 30 he was blue to me almost all of the time.

lvl 31 Necro of bertoxxulous.
When a PK will drop a Foci
# Oct 11 2000 at 4:12 PM Rating: Default
If a Penkeeper spawns with a short sword it will never have a Foci. If a Penkeeper spawns with a Sarnak <crapy> club, it will never drop a foci, but if it spawns with no weapons it will have the robe :) good camping and it is a long camp. I know of a few that have camped 48-60+ hours, which is insane, cuz the stats are not all that great, but is does look nice :)
# Sep 19 2000 at 1:52 PM Rating: Default
On the thrid floor past the one way spot before the river is the easier spawn. I would kill all the PH's which is the way I got the robe. It is a very log camp.........
