Just hunted this guy on live for the greenmist scrolls. I can reconfirm both locations are still good.

I cleared both locations for 10 spawn cycles and I got him 5 times total. 4 on the left side of the stables and once in the double room. Dropped the student's log and one illegible scroll every time.

I can confirm that as of today on Yelinak, a spectral courier spawns in two places: at -224, -438, in the corner of the double room off of the courtyard south of the stables, and -160, -515, in the room on your immediate left upon entering the stables. The coordinates currently shown are not fully accurate, so I would suggest updating them.

Just validating since it's been some time since last post.

Confirmed dropping on "a spectral courier" in the n220 n330 room (it's the "double room" on the west side of the stable area). Killed twice, dropped the log/book on the second kill. Total time: about 4 hours.

For what it's worth, I found the name of the mob is "a spectral courier", not "spectral courier".

He was spawning for me inside of 2 rooms... n228, n437 and n160, n520.

They appear to be on 16 minute timers.

Took me a couple of hours... he doesn't always drop the Student's Log.

I have him up currently. Instead of going east into the stalls, in same area, go west, where there are 3 doors. he's in the south most room, at the far end from the door. I am not sure how to post a screenie here, but will give it a shot.Screenshot
Hope you enjoy (This recipe is a trademark by Nightmares Inc., all rights reserved.) :-D

Just got to CoM to camp him for my shammy. He was up when I got here:), unfortunately, he only dropped illegible scroll. :( So looks like I will be here a while. He was in the small room behind the door on the left as you head into the stalls. -160, -520
All over

Spawned in 2 completely separate places for me, I think he can spawn in any of the stalls?
2 Spawn locations

This guy spawns in 2 places I found in 3 days of camping him. In the stables in the rooms and in the courtyard right accross from the stables. Just go out of stables and straight accross. You will find a spectral in courtyard and rooms on both side. Make sure to pull the rooms as well.

Took me 3 days (about 40 hrs) to get courier to drop the students report. Total of 4 spawns. Approx every 12 hours he spawns and the stables spawn about every 10-15 mins as does the courtyard.

Good luck

I have had the courier spawn three times now at -225, -436; in a room with two other mobs. Once you zone into CoM and get past the gate, head to the left and there is an alley between two sets of buildings. The Stables is on the left, and a courtyard with rooms around it on the right. I have found two out of three pages in the area on the right.
My advice is to keep both areas clear when camping this mob. I have spent hours on this quest so far. At level 51 with a healer merc there is nothing to worry about less dying of boredom. This is an horrendous time sink. I hope having Greenmist is worth it.

- He does spawn during the day

- Spawned for me at -170, -513

- Cleared out both sides of stables only once

- Dropped the Student's Log for me

- Special note: The room he spawned in did not currently have a mob in his place.

i just spent over 10hrs straight camping the courrier to get my 3 scrolls. he seemed to pop in only 2 places for me. in the long building on the west side(farthest fromt he door) and in the north door on the east side. Though 9/10 pops were in the west building. By no means do the scrolls drop in order as i had scroll 3 and 4 and then had about 12 duplicates drop(not sure wich one as i couldnt loot it to identify)

Anyone know if this mob is still spawning? Been here for 2 hours and the spectral courier has not spawned once. Killing every mob on both sides of the stable as soon as they pop - and have cleared both sides a mindnumbing amount of times. Have a tracker with me too and this mob has never shown up.... the chicken.
Spawing more often?
# Aug 01 2005 at 11:38 PM Rating: Decent
Keeping both sides of the stables ceared and he is spawning pretty much all over the place.They might have changed the spawn points.

I can verify that. While helping a guildie, he did not spawn in the place that I was familiar with back when I was doing the epic for my own shaman. Still in the stables area though.

Was there yesterday and got all three of the illegible scrolls in three hours. He only spawned three times for me and I was clearing the two rooms in the east stables and the room on the left side in the west stables. He only spawned in the room on the west side, (furthest spawn point from the door) for me.

Got lucky, went to the spawn point in the east side of the stables and he was there waiting for me. Took him down and he dropped the log. After spending days waiting for him I get so lucky =)

Now I can go do the rest of this epic, Spear of Fate here I come....
place holder
# Dec 30 2003 at 5:33 AM Rating: Decent
what is the place holder for this mob?
RE: place holder
# May 19 2004 at 6:13 PM Rating: Decent
there are 3 PH's, they can be anything.

you can find the first one in the EAST section of the stables, looking from the center of east, looking west, youll see 2 doors, the door on the right holds one.

in the WEST section, in the center, looking west, there are 2 doors, the one on your right has 2 mobs, the one FURTHEST from the door is a PH

same place, but in the left door, furthest mob from the door, is the 3rd

I finally understand this one. Knowing this, i am going to assume that each location will drop an Illegible Scroll that will probably be different from one another. The Courier that is in the longest room, on the NE corner of the stables has been consistent in dropping scroll II. I have seen a Courier pop in the SE room in the East stables, but he committed suicide on my DS at the time before I even knew he was attacking me. I have yet to see the one in the SE room on the West side yet. Day 3 now. Only have scroll #2 for the Ikky monk epic 1.0.

This would be some great info if I could understand what you're saying. The center of the west section looking west?
RE: place holder
# Jun 20 2005 at 9:34 AM Rating: Decent
The west section of the stables. If you followed the whole post, you'd realize that it was linear with the first statement he made, consisting of the east section of the stables.

I believe that the PH for courier is An Apparition.

been in COM for 2 weeks now... picked up two illegible scrolls for greenmist quest, have been unable to loot third. Courier pops all the time, and illegible scrolls drop all the time, but always scrolls i have already looted. 3 exactly alike scrolls on one mob , all of em lore? come on sony... cut the BS

Monks need the 3 illegible scrolls that drop off the spectral couriers for part of the Whistling Fists quest. There are two spawn points in the stables which are pointed out at this page: http://www.geocities.com/Kurrleeeci/CityOfMist.html I did this last night and can confirm the info at this link is correct.

Couriers seemed to pop every 10th PH or so in the specified locations although I suspect it is random. Worked the stables solo at 55 and in three courier kills got the three different scrolls. Don't know if I was lucky or if the drops are on a rotation.

I have been there twice since the Revamp and have killed the Courier in the South West Stable house? Three times - all three times it has only dropped the Illegible Scroll. I will try again tomorrow. Courier seems to pop fine after PH is killed.

Last night I ended up in the revamped CoM, and after the rest of my group left, I decided to head for the stables to see if the couriers were still there.
I am pleased to say that after killing a few ph's a courier popped right where it should have been. So it appears they have not been moved.

One scroll down, two to go:)

At the risk of repeating some very good posts here already, I went to CoM last nite for the second night in a row. The previous nite 2 of us (65 mage and 53 shammy - me) had cleaned out the stables (east and west) twice and no courier. Someone has posted he spawns only at night but I can't confirm this.
Went back the second time solo with dog, and cleared the WEST side of the stables - nothing. Medded and pulled the LEFT HAND side room of the EAST part of the stables (that's the bit with the number "6" in it here (http://www.eqatlas.com/kunark/cityofmistmap.html). To my surprises, as well as a PB skellie there was the Courier. Slowed both and let pet deal to skellie (at my level Frenzied Pet will take down even mobs conning db to me at 53 as long as they're slowed on his own). Courier an easy kill as expecte (nearly 20 lvls lower). Dropped both the log and the illegible scroll. I was one happy shammy.

The courier despawned on me. I was there for about 3 hours and I saw him spawn at the same time I also got trained. 15 minutes later I walk back into the room to watch the spectral courier turn into a plaguebone... grrr
So if you see him, kill him quick so this doesnt happen to you
