Wrong loc

Just wasted 3 days AFK camping this guy at the wrong loc provided by the Hunter of Kaesora thread. I then referred to an old-timey map with a different location and got him on the second spawn cycle. *groan* The correct loc was approximately +175, +70, -58

A friend looking for this mob just sent me the location at +141, +40, -60. Check around there. (are you kidding? 9 years and no loc on Alla yet?)

I am a 54 wizard... Jyll's Static Pulse is your best friend down in this dungeon. Just make sure you have a cleric, druid, or shammy along to keep you healed. Me and a level 50 cleric can take care of this room with no sweat.

The room pops... I AOE blast the place to death, heal up, do it all again. It is very easy for any wizard that is level 53 or higher. You will get no experience, but if you are after this guy then this is the way to go for a wizard. The only reason you should die is because your healer is asleep on the job.

RE: can a twink sk with noc blade lvl 47 solo him?

If you break the room spawns smart with FD and kill them in the hallway i bet. Safe your harm touch for him tho, mainly because the spiders around the area have a nasty habit of casting Sup heal on themselves and those around them. I'm a level 40 Iksar SK, moderate gear, 814 AC, roughly 1300 hp, swing a MoSS, and have about 75% magic resist. I was in a full group against this guy and he wasn't hard at all.
Soloing the fight might be a close match, depending on your magic resist (alot of pits closeby, including one to reaver. the spiders fear2), and i'd recommend a partner. A shaman would be nice because of the low maintainence of the SK, and can haste and slow and buff you into a monster. where is spawns is close to the entrance, but it's a one way drop, with many mobs in the long way around to the exit.

If you go through the secret wall IVU yourself and party. it helps a great deal here. The briarweb spiders see invis, and i think alot of others do as well, so IVU is the spell to have memmed. Just be careful of the Pits.
Mage solo?

Can a 42 mage take this guy on? How many are in the room he is in?

LVL 55 Necro. I camped the room for about 4 hours. I only managed to get 2 Runelords to spawn and both dropped the bard dagger. I can't say I'm really very interested in the thing though. I haven't managed to get the warrior or wizard daggers to spawn yet. My guess is that the bard dagger is the common drop...wiz dagger is uncommon...and Kylong is rare. Things can get a little hairy in there...even for a me at 55.

Dagger of frost was changed back to magic and is now tradeable. Runelord camp is pretty difficult because of the roaming healers so you are better off to kill them first, then start breaking spawn; makes the camp about twice as easy.

Good luck guys =)
spawn time
# Apr 06 2001 at 1:25 PM Rating: Good
I have been camping this guy for about a week now, on and off. The dungeon spawntime is about 20 min. The Runelord sometimes has a placeholder. He can also spawn 2 times in a row. I have gotten two Wiz daggers and two Bard blades. Doesn't it figure? I cam for the warrior dagger...

If you want to get in the room, here is how to do it: You have to have invis, and drop down the big hole, at the beginning of the zone. Run to the little room just opposite the room with all the spiders. Go inside the door and rest there. It is very rare that mobs will see you in there, but sometimes they will. It is very rare that mobs will see through invis, but sometimes they will.

Pull the mobs from the outside room one at a time. Make sure to let the wanderers come to you. All you will need to do to pull is stick your head out a little. One will come and just fight it off to the side. This is assuming they are green to you.

I was able to hold this camp just fine with just myself, a 51 mage.

Good luck!
Dagger of Frost NO DROP

In a recent patch (mid february 2001) the dagger was changed to NO DROP. Meaning, wizards have to come camp runelord themselves if they want one or figure out some way to transfer a no drop item.

It is also not a Magic item, so if you get jumped by an invulnerable creature, just nuke it. I think this may be a bug tho so I reported it to verant.

Hopefully this will make more people come to kaesora, I just hope they make some better drop off of frenzied strathbone or make the shield more common so people will come here.

Anyway if you already have a dagger that changed to no drop and you are NOT a wizard, 'Hahahahahaha'. That'll teach you to farm. =P I was lucky enuf to put this on my newbie wizard before patch went in. =) This dagger works well with solist wand and pierces mob immediately after solist wand timer is up. Good for doin the 38dmg + dagger damage every 4 seconds.

At 37 I was helping a higher level wiz try to get one of these. The Runelord conned even to me every time he spawned. So I am led to beleive he is always lvl 37.

Can lvl 53 nec camp SR (Strathbone Runelord) alone?
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 11 2001 at 7:03 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) NO WE HAD A LVL 55 DRUID 52 BARD 3 CLERICS A CHANTER ME A 46 DRUID 2 WARS LVL 45 A NOTHER DRUID AND 1/2 OF US DIED WHEN WE DROPED IN
RE: solo

Are you serious? We took 1 group all low 40's, 1 chanter cleric druid warrior monk and a mage and cleared everything including the church (and Xalgoz). I think you need to rethink that strategy. And no i doubt a necro could keep that room, there are just too many spiders.(imho)I could be wrong /shrug.
Location& Details

Camped the dagger last night. Dropped like a warrior dagger. Dropped bard dagger also. Then dropped dagger of frost. Spawn time is not an hour and a half. Its same as rest of dungeon but there is alot of placeholders like 2 placeholders before he spawns. To get to him u can either go straight from zone and go all the way down the pit or walk down the other way. I wouldnt advise going down the pit unless u got a pretty well wounded group expect around 6 mobs with maybe 1 or 2 healers. Kinda tough id advise taking the long way. ALso make sure to keep up with spawn because all 4 or 5 spiders that spawn in his lair will spawn around the same time.

It drops from the Straithbone Runelord in Kaesora a dungeon in the ruins near the Emerald Jungle zone in Field of Bone.
Wiz Only

This dagger is Wiz only and looks like a sword when equipped
# Sep 13 2000 at 7:29 AM Rating: Good
This mob has an hour and a half respawn and can also have place holders. The rest of the room is on a 20 minute cycle. From the caved in room where you drop down, head into the passage on the wall back right corner. At the first junction turn right, go up the ramp, and make another right, follow it to the end. Next to the "closet" in the very dead end of this area is where the Runelord will spawn. There are a LOT of spiders to clear to get to this spot and 4 others that will spawn a few feet from the Runelord spot.
