Update .. the checklist I was using said I needed Nez, Phurziken AND Gylton. Scrap that .. you only need one of these bloody things. I should have read that better.

So updated recommendation after 21 hours of camping Gylton .. SKIP THIS .. and camp Nez / Phurziken and leave after you get your one burning embers. It's OR not AND!

I've now seen Entalon and Gylton spawn in the same location, so scrap that thought as well.

Went to bed, with familiar up, came back and restarted the cycle. Only took three kills to get the cycle back. The mob was further to the west that I had to kill to restart the cycle, but still north.

So at first I was playing whack-a-mole and that was working to spawn Gylton, but finally got the cycle down, see below.

Here are some of the PHs I came across once finally getting the cycle down as shown below. Was hard at first with other people in the zone. Not sure why I'm doing the mage 1.0 other than being stubborn .. I did want to see what all of the epic 1.0s were like as I've done at least half of them (halfway through the SK one, never did the necro one, but other than those this is definitely the hardest epic I've come across, not sure of those three which one's hardest). I am also learning more about how to play a tracking class (on the mage? epic go figure!). Pretty sure I've dinged a couple of levels in barding doing this!

a scoriae hornet
an ember hornet
a sarnak zealot
a sarnak extremist
a sarnak avenger
a sarnak champion
a tatterback gorilla
a moldering gorilla
greater war boned skeleton
greater plague skeleton
a forest giant ancient
a forest giant verdant

And of course Entalon a few times.

So what I'm learning is it's more about staying to the west and north of the giant fort rather than which mob type necessarily you kill.

And there is no one /loc for Gylton or his PHs so please ignore that train of thought I posted below. I did map it out .. one weird anomaly I saw was that when a named spawned at the outer quadrants of my NW box it was Entalon, and more towards the centre it was Gylton .. don't know if that's random luck or a pattern.

BTW at 12 spawns or so on Gylton and no embers yet.

Ok Gylton also spawned by highsun at loc +2687, +1357, -312. So he appears to have multiple spawn points, but roughly in the same area, north and west of the giant fort.

I've been killing all sarnaks and greater skeletons, mouldering gorillas + whatever else I come across.

Gylton for the Wurmslayer quest spawns in the northwest area of Burning Woods, north of the Giant fort.

He has a singular spawn cycle that once you find can repeatedly spawn him. His spawn cycle respawns every 2minutes and 52 seconds (172s) and includes another named wurm "Entalon".

The easiest way to get Gylton or multiples is to bring a tracker and just clear the entire area north of the giant fort until either he or Entalon spawn and then WAIT for everything else to finish respawning. Once you kill Entalon simply wait 2mins 52 seconds and kill the next thing that should have spawned in your track list. Continue following this cycle and you should shortly have your Dragon Scale. ALTERNATIVELY you can kill each mob one by one and if they respawn faster than 1min 10 seconds they are not part of the cycle and can be safely ignored, moving to the next mob until you find the correct cycle time.

Yes, he spawns but out of the 7x times he spawned he never dropped the mage epic piece. Also killed Entalon 6x during the hunt for the Mage.

Was in BW tracking this guy down. He does indeed still spawn. Various spawn points north of the giant fort. N.W. corner of zone (as far West as zone wall, and East about as 1/3 to midway across the zone) Have not seen a him or any PH spawn south of giant fort. Timer is about 2 min 45 sec,(give or take a few sec due to auto update on tracking) not 5-7 min quoted in other posts.

PH's were mostly:
Sarnak extremist/champion/enthusiast
Greater plague/warbone skellies

forest giant ancient
moldering gorilla

I've been tracking all over the northwest corner of the zone looking for one of these, and neither name is on my track. Is there another place holder? Do they wander the whole zone? Or do I need to /bug it?

I am wondering the same thing! I've run through BW a bunch and found Gylton up but never thought to kill him. Every post I see says Entalon is a place holder but he's not up anywhere. Has anyone tried to camp this spawn recently? If I ever see him up, I'll use the Quillmane spawning technique to get some answers!

# Oct 07 2004 at 8:43 AM Rating: Decent
Arfyak, it's good to hear that Gylton still drops the Burning Embers. Like Gethenivous, someone told me Gylton no longer drops the Embers. This, of course, as I was killing Gylton every time I could find him, up in the NW corner of BW. Nice to know that the "no longer drops" is not accurate, since he's easy to find and kill.
Gylton still drops the embers
# Sep 28 2004 at 8:42 AM Rating: Decent
Just got Gylton to drop the embers for me! I did not notice the tell-tale glow on Gylton that has been talked about, but I killed him during the day. If you are soloing and to low for Phuzy, then be prepared for a longgggggg wait for them to drop off of Gylton. Took me about 3 weeks of dedicated playing to get them to drop. Your mileage may vary. Good luck.
What Embers?

I have camped Nez and Phur for 3 days now. I have 26 kills on Nez and Phur combined. To say they are stingy with the embers, is putting it lightly.

I got 'Red Wurm Gut' coming out my ears 8-P

This camp is taking way longer than what I predicted, so plan to spend some time here.

Does Gylton Still Drop Embers?
# Jul 12 2004 at 10:53 AM Rating: Decent
Ok I've spent several days killing Entalon and Gylton without success.

The other night I get a tell from a guy asking why I am killing Entalon. I answer "Because he spawns Gylton. I need Burning Embers for mage epic."

He tells me that they removed the embers from Gylton's drop table... /em smacks self on the forehead.

Ok so can anyone confirm this?

62 Cleric friend has tried to help me get Phurz but it has been camped every time we go... I did however see him pop and marked the spot on my map. There was a 65 Bard there killing him for the embers as well. I checked back a few hours later and Bard was still there so I am assuming Phurz is pretty stingy with the embers at the moment.

Yes, Gylton do still drop the burning embers. I got it from him after 3-4 hours of camping just the other day, and also noticed the ground around him was lit up.
Where oh where are those burning embers?
# Apr 15 2004 at 2:24 AM Rating: Decent
I've killed Entalon (Gyltons PHer) about 50 times and killed Gylton himself close to 25. Whenever I get some time I just get on my druid and start killing. Easy solo with druid at 51, just use drifting death, drones of doom, and creeping crud. Anything fire based will be resisted often.

I always pull them to the north side of the giant fort (1500 1000) to be safe about adds. In my experience they seem to spawn in about 4-5 different places just north of fort and will sometimes wander to the crater at 2000 neg2000 if left alone long enough.

Waiting patiently for my burning embers for mage epic (he's camped on north side of fort) but getting frustrated. On the plus side though I've made a few hundred plat and about 2 yellows of xp for the druid though.

Also spawn time is 5-6 minutes which is good, otherwise I'd pull my hair out. Here's hoping this godforsaken wurm gives me my drop soon...
Burning Embers DOES drop off Glowing Gylton
# Mar 27 2003 at 4:36 PM Rating: Good

After spending two weeks on the north side of the giant fort hill, killing Entalon 100 times and Gylton 60 times, Gylton finally dropped the embers.

When the embers dropped, Gylton was defintely glowing (an orangish pulsing glow eminating from his main body).

I have heard that glowing will only occur if /dynamiclights are turned "on" - mine were.

I started camping Gylton as a 54 mage and the air pet. Tagging with Elemental Maelstrom, I lured the Gylton/Entalon back to the giant fort hill (to avoid adds). DS on pet and a couple more DOTs, a couple pet heals (with TEF) made killing him a cake walk.

The spawn time was roughly 5-7 minutes between Gylton/Entalon (Entalon being the PH for Gylton - spawns more often).

The spawn points were at the base of the giant hill (on the north side), the hills facing the northside of giant fort behind the white pillar, and on top of the hills across the road (which are out of view from the giant hill - so one has to run up there occasionally if no pop is occurring).

Good luck!

Yeah, got my Burning Embers from him today and there was a definite glow: not on the body, but I could see him lighting up the ground around him.

So at least you pretty much know beforehand whether you're going to be happy or disappointed after you kill him :).

I didn't pay attention whether he was glowing or not but he did drop the Burning Embers on my second kill. Guess I've been lucky. :)

There are two places where I soloed Entalon and Gylton as a 55 Magician: One is at the little hill right at Skyfire Mountains zone, the other on the hill at the Giants fort on the opposite site of that little valley where the wurms wander back and forth. With the 51 earth pet and the magic based spells Wrath of the Elements (55 DoT) and Shock of Swords (44 DD), it was no hard to kill them. Scars of Sigil (54 fire based DD) didn't do much damage, but due to its larger range was nice to use for pulling and running to the mentioned kill spots. :)

Didn't see the body glow but I will confirm that Gylton does drop the embers. We were there for the dragon scales and got Burning Embers two times in a row. Luckily I was able to find a mage next door in Sky Fire to loot.

It's an easy spot to find. You zone in from Skyfire and camp on the little slope right in from the valley you followed from SF. Have a tracker. You are midpoint on little wandering route and somewhere near there at a random location on the route every 6 minutes there will be a spawn of one of two named wurms - Entalon or Gylton. In about 30 kills we've seen an even split on the spawn. In all cases, the spawn occurred at a point easily tracked from and pulled to that zone valley spot. We only saw the burning embers those two times out of the 15 or so kills we had of Gylton.

Gylton and Entelen are 39-41 ish. They usually conned even to my 40 druid.
# Jan 28 2003 at 9:14 AM Rating: Decent
The info from the Ultimate Mage Epic Quest Guide puts Gyltons spawn point at near P3000 P1500. I think it more east of that, possibly around P3000 P500 or so. I have dropped him about a dozen or more times in the last week but yet to find the Burning Embers. I usually set up camp near the path to SF (watch out for wandering mobs - there is a Sarnak caster that spawns near to SF and walks back into the zone). Both Entalon and Gylton can be seen wandering from here if you don't want to try looking for them. Spawning with Entalon appears random. In one session I dropped Entalon 7 times in a row before Gylton showed. Another time Gylton popped twice in succession. Repop is about 5 mins but as they wander then its difficult to judge when they will come into view from the SF camp. Sometimes very quickly other times might not show and you have to go looking.

Wurms are resistant to fire based spells. I use a 51 earth pet + plate armour + 2 Dagger of Symbols. Let pet get aggro, then TEI pet and shock of swords until death. Usually pet at 2-3 bulbs of health and down to 40% mana or so with KEI.
BTW I'm a 52 (nr 53 mage) on AB. Name's Llador so say hi ;)

There are multiple spawn points shared by Entalon and Gylton up in the north-west-ish corner of the zone not too far from the Skyfire zone line; or, at least, I saw both Entalon and Gylton spawn at some of them at different times and suspect they're all shared spawns. I think there are three spots near the ruined building not far from the zone line, and at least two more further to the East.

Either way, once I found them the first time and killed them, they weren't hard to find again... usually I'd spot them within a minute or so of spawning before they wandered off too far, and often right at their spawn point. Being non-KoS to Sarnaks made that a lot easier since I rarely got aggroed while running around looking for the wurms.

These mobs are easy as a pally chain stun rules they get one hit on me thats it sometimes only 17 damage. Well then again do havea a windblade doing double 150's. But anyways anyone got a clue what the wurm scales are for have found nothing on it yet.

I really am sorry for you if you only double for 150 with a windblade...

i double for 325 quite frequently.

as for the wurm he is a gimp... hitting for 150 it would take you a while...

#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 08 2002 at 8:33 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I am a 45 druid with es vambracers and soloed this guy easily. I was walking along trying to find the guy u talk too to start the druid epic when i saw this guy on track. he was blue so i decided to go for it and i soloed him with 50 mana just rooting and drones of dooming him with my es vambs. He is very resistant to fire, but can be easily killed if u just snare, root, dot, and repeat untill he is dead. Hope this helps.
# Jul 07 2002 at 9:05 PM Rating: Default
could a 45 ranger and 45 druid take down these wurms by having the druid snare, dot and nuke like mad to get lots of aggro then have the ranger chase after and melee the mob while the druid just... runs away from it... works perfectly for HG and other big mobs..
RE: hmm!
# Feb 17 2003 at 1:07 PM Rating: Decent
Actually soloed it this morning. Just kept running circles around it and cast DOTs... Trick was to stay out of range of a rather nasty bite, but close enough to land the DOTs... took a few minutes, but quite a rush when you realized you soloed a dragon just by singing at it...

I haven't tried it with that combo, but these mobs do have high magic resistance. I'd bet that the snare wouldn't stick if you are the same level as the mob.
