20 minute respawn for him or his placeholder

Just started camping this guy on Vallon Zek, hour later after killing the initial PH and nothing...

having been there for another hour... seems like theres a Guardian of Xalgoz PH also, certainly spawned on time, and gave a negative Ven Sathir faction hit...definitely follows the 18 min timer, but could of course be just a general spawn itself...

does anyone know if you have to have good faction with cabilis in order to do turn in for necro quest
My experience

Like many places, this can be as difficult as you make it. A good many of the mobs around the librarian seem to wander, so it does well to wait out front for them to come to you. Much easier than taking them all on.

Also PH appears to be Spectral Guardian, though may be Guardian of Xalgoz. I'm fairly certain of this.

As a 52 shaman I can pretty much solo the whole place if I'm careful. Single and double pulls are nothing, but when I get a bunch of them it can quickly get out of hand. So take it easy here and dont try to rambo the place... but then if you did that strat you wouldn't be high enough to be here

How about some more usefull information.
# Feb 14 2003 at 1:42 PM Rating: Default
Trying not to be rude, for that is the last thing i'd wish to be though in nearly every single message board there isn't more then 2 bits of information that is usefull repeated over and over and over.. along side.. "I killed it woohoo!" it's normaly only what the creature drpos which is in the Mob's description anyways with links to the items stats.. Faction is listed too..even the quests involved with the creature.. it isn't needed to to be said 20 times over what is drops why not spend more time on more usefull information such as Spawn time.. if there are place holders.. etc etc.. Once again not to be rude but please 1-2 of the near same things is more then enough.

Failed Crypt Raider

The failed crypt raider drops a no rent note that looks like a spell has anyone ever given this to the Librarian?
I was there today camping the crypt raider for my Whistling Fist scroll. Didnt know the librarian would talk to anyone. Or I might have tried it.

Why the librarian is tortured.

*Platypus adjusts his shackle as he clears his throat*
Hello there, hatchlings and broodlings! It's your Uncle Platypus, the man, the monk, the Iksar! My scaly skin is covered in more bumps then usual, because I'm about to tell a fun story! Gather round, and let Uncle Platty tel the story of the Tortured Librarian. HEY! Don't pull the nice storyteller's tail... *eats the playful hatchling and burps loudly, with Iksar people looking at me in horror*. Oh, my.... Excuse me! *The commoners look relieved and go on about their business*.

Once, in a magical library called Kaesora, there lived a happy librarian. Oh, one second *reguritates the head of the Sarnak he'd devoured before storytime*. The librarian spent many happy days filing the Dewey Decimal System, day in, out out, the mind-numbing, thought-flaying, torturously boring filing, filing... filing, but he always wore a smile on his face, although this may have been because the madness he was suffering through caused dementia and the forced smile in denial, with teeth grinding and the insanity finally taking it's icy grip on him. But, one day, a playful little soft-skin came up and proceeded to rip him to shreds.Every time he would respawn, he died, but the forced grin with such tension the tendons in his neck showing everywhere, but a smile noneheless.

The sweet release of Death on his shoulders relieving him temporarily from the pure extract of dementia being poured like salt in an open wound into his bent mind kept him happy. But one day, after a record 32 softskins in succession obliterated him, another came in. But after killing him, he did horrors beyond horror: He shuffled the books out of order, knocked over the library cards, and RIPPED PAGE 10 OUT OF THE ADVENTURES OF MR. KITTY! This was too much for the librarian to bear, and all his denial broked. The painful thoughs came flooding back, and he went into a downward spiral of misery, fear, and hatred. Sadly, he didn't have the capacity of a postman, and the torment of an eternity of dementing work came upon his battered soul. But then the old demented smile came back. He could deny it.

Then a straw broke the camels back. He went into the bathroom after a full day of misery, and found: A HAIR IN HIS SOAP! He ran outside screaming, and was subsequently captured by giants, subjected to torture to horrible to mention, and starved to death. And the hair was still in his soap!

So, that's why the mea old Tortured Librarian is so mean. And, of course, the torture of mental breakdown, physical torture, and hairs in your soap will happen to all of you along the line. And then I will eat your heads if you are weak. I know where you live. You cannot hide. You all shall die! *Here, he lets out a roar, and bites the head of a hatchling in the front row, and proceeds to swallow him whole, as all the Iksar children run off screaming*.

Then, the Iksar teacher said, "Good job, Platypus! That is a really good Career Day presentation for Iksar."

Of course, a note to all you young Iksar out there, the torture the Librarian suffered can never happen to you, and such horrors can never be viewed here in Cabilis.............. sure they can't!

(I will devour you!)

I shudder to think what happened to the other librarian to make him "enraged".

spirit tome
# Mar 27 2002 at 4:05 PM Rating: Default
I was in a group last night that killed this guy three times. All three times he dropped the spirit tome. Unfortunately I am an iksar shaman, so i'm kinda worried after reading about the faction hits. I never even won a roll on the tome. Anyway, the point I was making is that it must not be very rare if it dropped three out of three times.

Iksar Amaible Hail
# Nov 21 2001 at 5:31 AM Rating: Decent
When hailed by an Iksar who is amaible..

"Return what was stolen.."
Is the tortured librarians reply.
I am an Iksar Shaman, and he does give a Cabilis faction hit if slain.

Two options:
There is a tapestry for a necromancer quest that mentions "kashora" is it is read... or there is a rare spawn mob in emerald jungle "Tome Raider" that drops a "book" .. seeing this is a library.. the book might be something to hand in.

I dont think so. Im monk 55 now, could go down solo and kill the librarians but it was hard. Healer mobs spawn near the librarian and one or two almost always joins the fight. The librarian himself if kinda weak, goes down fast, but if he gets one or two healers helping its get real hard.

The tortured librarian has legion of cabalis and the iksar shaman guild faction hits if you kill him. Just the tortured librarian not the spectral one. Found out the hard way last night when he conned amiable. So I logged real quick to check faction and it wasnt listed here. Logged back on killed him took the faction.. so all you iksars out there just be careful.
