of the skeletal scryers can be up at once that I have seen. They can spawn anywhere in the moat including the one that wanders from the moat to the basement.

Killed mobs only in the moat and noticed that most/all mobs are "placeholders" for this mob. Respawn timer is about 23 min or shorter, depending on spot. It took me about 200 mobs to make the DW gauntlets drop. If you can, I suggest you camp PoWar for the Nullify Magic rings (Kijarl & Rulnavis), casting time is significantly lower and they dispel 4 spells.

Found him swimming in the moat on the North side of the zone. He was right about in between the front and back sections of the castle. Dropped the crappy gloves =(

Since no one's really posted where he spawns mostly...I've seen him spawn the most in the building of the Right Courtyard and the moat. I've cleared on the wall, in the castle, the Left Courtyard and everywhere else and I have yet to see him spawn anywhere else. So if you're hunting for your Locustlure - the Right Courtyard and the moat is your best bet of finding him.

Hope this helps!

Lol, I should have posted something 3 weeks ago. Went back in game after prior post and on 2nd scryer spawn, finally got the locustlure! Took 103 scryers, and during that time got my tribute maxed at 200k and plenty of plat to pay my merc now`

Ok, I think they nerfed this. Over the past 4 weeks I've now killed 101 scryers and have seen maybe 3 deepwater gaunts, and the rest the jarsath gloves. Much sucketh!

This camp is brutal. Some others may have gotten lucky but not me. I am in the middle of a (so far) 4 day camp. I have put in about 40 hours over the past 4 days and have killed the Scryer at least 30 times. I have cashed in for at least 10k pp during this run from all the other mobs I kill waiting for the scryer PHs to spawn. I have seen 1 Deepwater Gauntlets and the rest Jarsath Gloves.

I can't recommend this camp to anyone but the MOST determined folks. I consider myself rather detemined and this camp is starting to get to me.

Buy a Locustlure from one of the incredibly lucky.

This is a horrible camp! I've been here for 2 weeks, killed the Scryer at least 30 times, but no Locustlure. Just the Trident & Deepwater gauntlets. It's very frustrating, but I'm not giving up. A level 80 Rogue on my server told me that this item even lands on mobs in WOS & Anguish.

I finally got my Locustlure. 60+ hours and 40+ scryers. Loot list was 1 Locustlure, 1 Jarsath Trident, 4 Deepwater Gaunts and over 20k. Still recommend buying it if you can.

BTW - He does hold the weapons if he has them, so you can be disappointed even before you l00t him!

and pulled one of these out using snare. I was using my 54 Druid, I was hit for 500+ dmg to start, it kept breaking root, I dotted it twice with Winged Death and Drifting Death and got hit with another DD for 500+, I got off one Scorie DD but only did 200+ dmg. I noticed my health was down to 12 percent so 'Train to right side of zone'. It's a tough one to solo.

At what level could a Cleric/Paladin duo solo this?
#Anonymous, Posted: May 02 2002 at 11:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i hate druids and their dumb rogue weapon stealing ways
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 21 2002 at 7:42 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You my friend are a idot druids are awsome. what the hell do u mean by stealin rog weapons the only percing weapons they can use are scimatares. ya that seems they stole all right. plus there 2nd best soloer in the game next to necro. plus life would be alot harder without them so plz re think what you say ur just a dumy that doesnt know how to play a caster/preist type. (DUMB ***)
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 27 2002 at 11:39 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You my friend are an even bigger idiot. Druids do not use piercing weapons...and scimitars are 1h slashing. Life would be harder without them...but druids are not that awesome, high 40s...paladins can heal just as good as them, they can't fight as well in dungeons where most high lvl encounters are, and all around become more mediocer then the gods they were before the expansions.

Hmmm... u say that high palas can heal just as good as druids...

if i get the stats right palas best healing spells are:

Celestial Cleansing: that are a healing over time spell.. and just heal for 700 hp, and i takes 24 seconds before u got them.

Superior Healing: heals for 583 and this is your lvl 51 healing spell

Healing Wave of Prexus: That heal for 660 whole group at 58.

While druids get:Chloroplast: that heals 10hp per 6 sec... this mean after fight medd time for lets say 5min... this would give 500hp. lvl 44

Skin like nature: maybe not the greatest rege spell.. but it stack whit chloroplast and other regen spells.. so whit skin and chloroplast your regen would be 12 instead of normally 1.. 49

Regrowth: Incease hp regen whit 15hp/tick. lvl 54

Chloroblast: Heals for 428.. at 54 this might not be so good.. but whit a recast on 3 seconds and just cost you 175.. this is one of druids best Healing spell.

Nature's Touch: healing spell for 978.. Palas dont even come close that..

So donīt say palas can heal as good as druid because druids and Shammys are secondary healers after Clerics.. No one can ever heal as good as them.

Where is it that he said that? Or are you just trying to start some lame off topic thread?

Been fighting in dungeons for over 3 years as a druid and havent had any problems. Oh, and I do melee and regularly bash for 100 or more, using a haste belt, so us druids can swing a stick when we need to-and take the hits. Obviously this pally is an abortion that lived!

You are right, but only partially. A Paladin can't heal quite as well as a druid, seeing as a Paladin would run out of mana far before a Druid or Shaman ever would. But they do have healing spells that are almost as good if not as good. (Not meaning this post to be a flame, as it is not. Purely an informative post as you seemed uninformed.)

Touch of Nife
Classes: Paladin level 61

1: Increase Hitpoints by 1125

Mana: 450 Target Type: Single
Casting Time: 5.00 Duration: Instant
Recast Time: 2

Light of Nife
Classes: Paladin level 63

1: Increase Hitpoints by 850

Mana: 400 Target Type: Single
Casting Time: 1.00 Duration: Instant
Recast Time: 5

Look at that.. 1 second cast time, quite useful in my opinion. And more...

Supernal Cleansing
Classes: Paladin level 64

1: Increase Hitpoints v2 by 250 per tick

Mana: 300 Target Type: Single
Casting Time: 1.50 Duration: 4 ticks
Recast Time: 30

Even though this only turns out to be 1000hp over 24 seconds, HoT spells generate less aggro. Thus keeping your friend neighborhood Paladin alive for the rest of the fight. Remember, different heals for different situations.

Wave of Marr
Classes: Paladin level 65

1: Increase Hitpoints by 900

Mana: 850 Target Type: Group v2
Casting Time: 3.00 Duration: Instant
Recast Time: 30

GROUP heal for 900hp's... pretty nice I'd say.

And remember, I did not mean this nothing as a flame, so please do not take it as one. I personally play a Paladin, and just felt it as my duty to do my class justice.

Yeah but the little thing you forgot to check is when they posted, Paladin's didn't have any of those at the time of their post. So they were in fact right. And in aswer to the druid suck/not suck the class druid is like any other, played well they can be a huge benifit to any well balanced group. On the flip side MOST druids unfortunately seem to be leveled up to 50-65 by kiting or some other antisocial EXP gaining method, and have ZERO actual grouping experience. They have no real clue how to control their agro, or what to do when they get agro (oh the joys of trying to get a mob off some moron druid trying to kite indoors). Unfortunately several of them don't really understand that their primary roles in groups are as snarer (god forbid they do it at a time where they either don't get agro or the mob isn't already running off at 500 MPH), secondary healer, and lastly (and only as mana permits) nukes/dots. So like I said druids do not suck, just several people who play them do.

what does any of this have to do with skeletal scryers?
Can I take him?
# Mar 07 2002 at 9:03 PM Rating: Default
Can a 45 SK and a 50 rogue take him and are there things close to him that will try to kill me also?or is it just him?

He is not hard, a 49 cleric, 52ench, and a 55 warrior (me) killed him, all you have to do is make sure you stop him from casting spells. Droped JS gloves btw.
