Have been camping Jeldorin from Battle Master Ska`tu, but have also been clearing Korocust's room and haven't seen him spawn in the past 2.5 weeks. In fact, the Battle Master hasn't spawned in 2 days either. Strange

EDIT: Battle Master just spawned Smiley: smile No Jeldorin however.....

EDIT2: Still no Korocust spawn.

Ok, here is the /loc for Korocust. It's -559.46, -365.54

And the /loc for Arch Inspector Nibi`zi is -527.75, -365.35.

Arch Inspector Nibi`zi spawns next to Korocust in Korocust's room in the back. You will see a structure with 4 colums with redish sparkling effects floating down.

Now as to how to get to this room, it's quite easy. First of all, if you know how to get to the Royals, I'm sure you are famaliar with the waterfall and the bridge you have to cross to get to it. The first thing you want to do is stand on the opposite side of the bridge away from the waterfall. It will be the same location where the Ancient Guardian spawns. Now if you look south, you will see another bridge and on the other side of the bridge is about 4 mobs. When you clear those mobs and cross the bridge, you will see a room to your east, that's the room you want. There is at least 12 mobs in there.

If that doesn't help, it's the room furthest SE on your Chardok map.

I hope that helps and happy hunting!
Looking for a LOC on this guy
# Sep 16 2003 at 3:59 PM Rating: Decent
We plan on camping this room soon for the DMF spell for a guildie, but are not sure where to find it.

I'm familiar with the route to the Royals but that's about it. When we go to Royals, we zone in and use Lev to take the uper left tunnel ( that you can reach by floating off of the ramp up to the zone exit ).

A loc would be great, or a description of how to get to him using the route to the Royals as a reference would probably work.

Thanks!

Doubt you will see this cuz the post is old but this is what Im talking about. You come on looking for info about where he spawns then you come back and say nm I found him. Why couldnt you post his location so those of us looking in the future would be helped. Post a friggin /loc or copy and paste the ingame map location. Ignorance is not bliss.
Korucust's report
# Aug 18 2003 at 7:03 PM Rating: Decent
last night i was leading a raid after the nobiles and i got this book from somewhere in here. I want to say it is off the prince but i am not certain.
It is called "Korucust's report to the Di'zok". We did not take down Korucust that i know of.

The book is 4 pages in length and to sum it up just talks about how he got lucky to find a traitor and once telling someone got elevated in rank because of it..

anyone know what this is for I think it might have something to do with the pocket zone.... no clue

D Men Floating
# Oct 16 2002 at 5:13 PM Rating: Decent
Camped Korocust room for 4 hours, Koro did not show up. However the Arch Inspector did twice and once he dropped the D Men Floating spell. Vermis is correct, its not ND.

Cleared the room by pullng to the BK area, pops are fast alright. I used proximity pulls only (60 monk) and got 2 each pull, left the pit till last because a) the side mobs agroed first and b) the slope into it is slippery and you move very slowly. I'd run over the trapped bridge several times (which did not trigger, levitate may help, I still got the trap message but no damage or roots) then would FD on BK side of bridge and see how many had come, was always 2 altho I have done this b4 and had a lot more. One last thing, if you FD so the mobs stop just over on BK side of the bridge, the pathing sucks and they will initially walk towards you, which means they will agro any BK pops or worse will agro ont ehg roup if they are too close - watch out for that !
About Dead Men Floating
# Sep 23 2002 at 1:12 PM Rating: Good
Dead Men Floating does not drop off Korocust, but a named that spawns next to him - Arch Inspector Nibli'Zi. PH is an imperial inspector.

The spell is NOT NO DROP as some have stated, but it is in fact LORE.
Letter to Phara Dar

We killed Koro tonight with 1 group and a new item he drops is called "A Letter to Phara Dar". Phara Dar is in Veeshan's Peak. Anyone know anything about this quest ?

He is single-group able. Just have to pull like 4-5 at a time. Otherwise the room dosnt get cleared fast enough. The repops just before his room are very fast. Being the only non 60 in the group (54 cleric) we had a 60 SK as main tank, 60 monk, 60 rogue, 60 enchanter, and 60 druid. It wasnt to bad, enchanter just had trouble clicking on the right mob sometimes. Gets pretty thick with those huge acient golems.
General Information on Area
# May 14 2002 at 8:14 AM Rating: Excellent
Camped his room for 5-6 hours in order to get the necro spell.. He failed to pop for us, but thought the general info about the room/area would be useful.

I'll assume you are familiar with the route down to the cappy room and the series of bridges there.

First warning : The bridge heading to korocust has a particularly nasty trap on it. does about 280 damage and holds you in position. You will need to be CotH out.. (or TL, succor etc.) So if possible bring a rogue.

You can by pass the bridge if you want. Grab lev and run off the side on the right - with run 2 you can just about get to the ledge on the other side.

Once you have got past the bridge (by either method) you have a small area with approx 5 spawns, with usually 3 golem types. These 5 spawns have a very fast respawn time. Approx 12 mins.

After these are cleared, you will need to pull the main room. The 2 golem guards will come together, but without the rest of the room.

Then it will depend on luck of spawns. The room comprises a pit, and a walkway running around the outside of it. About 4 spawns inside the pit, 2 spawns on each side on the walkway, and a further 3 spawns at the back on the walkway (middle one being korocust/pher)

This is where the pulling becomes a little tricky. Depending on what has spawned inside the pit, you may find the entire room aggros when you try to pull.

However you try to pull the room - be aware that the room your group(s) is sitting in has a 12 min local repop so you have to move fairly fast.

Once cleared Korocusts room is on a 26 min repop and therefore quite easy to hold. Its the initial break that requires the skill and effort.

Wish I could help more on detailed tactics for breaking the main room - but will depend a lot on your groups makeup. We fd pulled with a monk and worked fairly well. Would advise pulling the initial mob in the pit first. Then pulling each side. But take what you can on the tag.

The named in the room seem to be uncommon, with only 2 named in 5 hours. Since Korocust himself didn't pop - have no details about his drops :)

Good luck

weapon on warrior not CBoL

I would doubt that that is a Crescent blades of luclin hence the name CRESCENT which is the shape of the regular blade.

Has anyone ever seen him drop Dead Men Floating?
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 08 2002 at 8:22 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) that sword on the warrior in the background is what Crescent Blades of Luclin used to look like, one time when VI patched they messed up the coding for CBoL and accidentally gave it that graphic for about a week or so. I'm pretty sure now that it's the graphic for Greenmist, the iksar SK badass quest weapon from cabalis, which is like 18 22 or some ****.

I don't know. I had thought maybe it was Greenmist the first time I saw it, since it has the same hilt as a fer'esh or low level khukri, but now I see a barbarian warrior wielding it.
