As the subject says, it took me 9 kills of 'a rogue lion' before Tarbul Earthstrider spawned. He went down fairly easily with a group of low 50s. In addition to the Rain of Karana, he dropped a 'Faded Salil's Writ Page'. The latter isn't currently in his loot list.

This mob is not that rare, its more like uncommon with a spawn rate of about 5-10%. The PH (placeholder) is "a rogue lion" which does spawn about 90-95%. Most of the (about nine) spawn points are located near the zone borders in a wide cirle around the big crag spider mountain in the middle of the zone. The rogue lion (and/or Tarbul) does respawn every 36 seconds after being killed and does walk from its different spawn points always towards the crag spider mountain. A tracker is very helpfull as it does speed up things alot but it can be done without a tracker too by just waiting at the top of the mountain and watching out for the rogue lion that will pass by downwards.

Spawn rate of Tarbul Earthstrider: 5-10%
PH: a rogue lion
Number of spawn points: ~9
Respawn rate: 36 sec.
Location: Crag spider (hill giant) mountain in the middle of the zone.

Well I don't know about that. Killed 30 to 40 rogue lions and still no spawn. At it for 4 to 5 hours and nothing. The roaming PH's is also a killer to do, with no track.

Ignore the hunt for a static rogue lion. I put a sentinel at the mentioned loc. Not one spawned.
I put a ranger on top of the mountain at neg 1690 neg 2040. It seems like there are two different spawns that walk close to each other. Soon enough the giant spawned.

My experience was that as soon as I killed my last rogue lion the giant showed up on track. I can be wrong.

However tracking skill of 60ish and chain killing lions worked. When he spawns he run eastwards from west zone edge along a road south of the road to the mountain pass.The road is not marked on the map.

Can confirm, came here with my druid for tracking and chain killed only the rogue lions and gnolls for some faction. The lions spawned randomly around the zone so you'll have to move around a bit to make sure you're catching them. I was able to get him to spawn 5x in about 20min.
Found Tarbul yesterday on Vox
# Sep 23 2015 at 10:27 AM Rating: Decent
Brought a tracking friend to the zone and had him watch out for any Rogue Lions. Killed them as soon as they spawned. 4 Rogue Lions down and Tarbul popped up. I took him on my own, level 56 mag with my pet. No healer, No trouble. 2 minutes at the most and he was down. Just focus on killing the Rogue lions. I read somewhere that the Rogue lion pops and stands at a specific location (around 725, -2500). I found this to be false, so don't waste your time. Never saw a rogue lion anywhere near that location.

I took my bard to EK and Song of the HighSun a few A Rogue Lion. The respawns were fast.
I kept track on automatic update and they were 1-2 a minute. I didn't put a timer on them.
I never saw two rogue lions up at the same time.
This are 8 spawn points for 9 lions. I only saw one respawn in the same place. I will edit the post as I get more info.

Spawn points for the lions:
neg 1525 pos 455
neg 1690 neg 2040
neg 2070 neg 655
neg 1010 neg 1955
neg 2820 neg 1415
neg 3215 pos 405
pos 1070 neg 560
neg 2260 neg 360
Must have killed a dozen hill giants

Stay to the east a bit and kill in that space and I seemed to get a hill giant every few minutes...took a while but Tarbul eventually popped.

been here 4½ hours... around 30 sec spawn time, so roughly killed a rogue lion every minut... GOD this is worse than gettin the lava elemental to spawn!
Figuring out Tarbul's PHs
# Dec 24 2013 at 12:20 AM Rating: Decent
-a lion patriach
-a lion matriach
-a crag spider
-a chasm crawler
-a hill giant

There are at least 4 NPC's that spawn on the location n1656, n2403. They are on a 20 second to 6 min timer and one of the spawns is a hill giant. I don't yet know if Tarbul Hillstrider can come from this spot, but I've watched this cycle enough to at least give you guys this certainty. I've watched this cycle about 20+ times over now with no Tarbul, so I think it's a pretty safe bet that at least SOME of the other Hill Giants are not place holders for Tarbul.

I finally got Tarbul to spawn by bringing in a tracker and just chain killing the "a rogue lion". It took probably 50 kills to get Tarbul to spawn.

If any mages are having a problem finding him for their epic then be aware that http://eqbeastiary.allakhazam.com/search.shtml?id=16468 - Sir Gregon Sulltor - will kill him - I've seen it happen. No wonder i spent days trying to spawn him with no luck - he paths by Gregon and gets eaten. Bah.

I've been tracking and killing every rogue lion in the zone for several hours and no Tarbul. Anyone had any luck with him lately? Or doesn't he pop for a ranger?

Location was -1398, -1076 on Crag Hill, so that's correct. Seemed like most of the 20+ rogue lions pathed onto or near Crag Hill, so I just sat there and roamed the hill and killed all rogues. Of course he dropped Rain of Karana. And 68gold. Cheap *******.

Just spawned Tarbul Earthstrider 6 times in 4 hours for Mage guildies. Initially killed everything in sight for 30 minutes and got nothing. From then on killed only the "a Rogue Lion" on a 39-40 second spawn and Tarbul started popping.
Feel free to nail me with your flames .. check my spelling .. punctuation .. what ever makes you happy. I am not here for an E-***** building Experience ... these forums are for info not Ego's.
Some nice EQ theory here...

But having farmed silks in EK from 2001 till now I can 100% assure you that the rogue lion is the one and only place-holder. I'd say his chance of spawning instead of rogue lion is less than 5% though.

-1531, 59

I have been camping this guy with my ranger for 5 hours now. The spawn time for the PH (a rogue lion) is around 20 seconds. You can imagine I have killed enough to where I am ready to /q and take a months break.

I noticed everyone who had spawned the guy all had one thing in common and that was killing spiders for silks.

I decided to just kill everything along with the rogue lion and sure enough he spawned shortly after. I would rather camp Quillmane again anyday this was rough.
Try killing crawlers

Spawn Location?

was using bard for track, decided to get spawn location and used Song of Highsun on the supposed PH "a rogue lion", which tracked him back to -30, -500, 3

I've seen other spawn locations listed so maybe there can be more then one cycle.

Update, no exact /loc but I retracked and found another that gates back to the bridge next to the water

a third spawn location for "a rogue lion" found at -500, -40, 3

2 hours of killing rogue lions. By that point i said ***** it, im just going to kill everything around me by the southeastern side of the zone on the hills. Sure enough, as soon as i start gathering a mass amount of mobs... he spawns. Was a total pushover. Killed him in seconds with my 75 cleric.
