I camped the 2 inhabitant walking outside the the keeper of the tomb castle for mnany hours. (one spawn close to the hidden wall leading to portals) the other one spawn at entrance of the hallway leading to the courtyard of the keeper of the tomb . None of these spawn changed to the Ratman guard.

Then I decided to camp to keeper of the tomb castle itself. I think there are about 3 spawn but don't know exact location. The inhabitants are patrolling inside. After about 6 inhabitant kills inside, I found a guard. See attached picture.

Good luck.

I was able to kill this mob solo as a 60 monk using discs and FD at low health. I have a pre-nerf fungi staff and a fungi tunic to regen quicker while down. He doesn't regenerate hit points at all. Took me about 30 minutes to do.

Ph is indeed an inhabitant, paths the right side stair case in the castle.

when i killed inhabitant(dark blue to 59, rest of mobs are light blue to 59) on right side he dropped a key and an aug, next spawn was a ratman guard.

key was for room to highscale kirn.

Where does he spawn?

I heard the Ratman's PH is a Ratman Inhabitant that walks around by the fountain before you head to the Keeper of tomes. Does anyone know where this guy actually spawns? ive been camping the area for a while killing Inhabitants and still no spawn

Just got him to spawn today. He Spawns in the castle where "keeper of the tombs" and "Ghost of Kindle" is on map. He regens very very slow... I Hope this helps. Just kill the mobs and ratman inhibitants in the castle to get him to spawn.
New drop?
# Jul 09 2006 at 1:58 AM Rating: Decent
He dropped an "Exceptional Ratman Blood". Stackable and flagged as tradeskill useable. Not listed in Alla's database yet that I can see.

Anyone know what it's for?

You DO NOT need to do any of these faction quests for your epic. When you do your turn ins, simply go invis or hide before the turn in. This is what I did - bring up the trade window, use hide skill, con to ensure I am indifferent, then trade. If you can't hide, get someone to throw an invis on you when you get the trade window up. Using this method you can cut out the entire first portion of the epic (do not need kurron ni, ratman guard, nor the cough elixir)
But, if you want to do it just to say you did it, he is found around the area where you find the enchanter monster that drops the essence of ghost (Ghost of kindle maybe?! I forgot) Anyway, it's in the courtyard spot where 2 ghosts guard the tunnel down to that Wretched guy and the rooves of the buildings are full of gargoyles. Enter one of those buildings leading to the enchanter monster and the guard wonders around that area. And, yes, he is trackable.

My advice? Don't bother...

You can also use a cloudy Potion which is an Insta Cast pot.

Found him running around by the ghost of kindle loc neg 96 pos 190. I think that you can get him to spawn by killing any of the ratman inhabitants.

Killed this guy last night with two groups mid 50s to 60s. He was roaming in the not to far in the undead castle. Took us by total suprise, we went around a corner and there he was coming at us. He had the Dusty Tomb.

After the revamp of the Hole, into the Old ruins of Paineel, they moved this ******* to a new location.

We dropped him last night in the sublevel area at /loc -100,300 (subleveled from, and a bit south of where eqmaps says you'll find a mimic - you'll have to go in from the west side though).

He was roaming the west hallway. We took him out pretty easy with two groups of 58-62's and a 65 BST as MT. A couple of other inhibitants added during the fight, kinda unavoidable. They weren't to much trouble tho'. He dropped what he was supposed to drop - the dusty tome for my epic.

Yay !!
Can someone help me and tell me where ratmen guard spaawns

Hi all,

I've looked and looked down there and am not sure where he spawns. I found what looks to be a jail cell with Caradon is this the right area?

We just took this dude down tonight on our way to whoop The Ghost of Kindle (in its new spawn loc since revamp). It spawned at the top of the stairs going up to Kindle's room at loc about n90, p350. If you look on the eqatlas map, Kindle's room is on the second floor above the chests marked #11 and the stairs up is the winding section with 2 "U" turns in it south west of #11.

He could be a random spawn that has other ratman types as PHs (not positive though). We killed a ratman (not guard) in the same spot as it spawned probably 10 mins before the ratman guard popped.

does anyone know if this guy is spawnable by killing the other ratmen warriors or is he somethng that will just spawn on his own?
RE: spawn
# Feb 10 2003 at 1:46 PM Rating: Decent
Don't know for sure but my he popped for my guild after killing everything in the jail after about 2 hours. Don't know if this was just luck or not.

He had VERY High MR. Casters couldn't land anything on him. We took him down pretty easy with a 1 group consisting of..

48 Cleric
55 Pally (me)
57 SK (the lucky guy)
55 Necro
52 Warrior
59 Chanter

No one died even though we had 2 Ratman Warrior Adds (Chanter charmed one and sent it after the other, probably saving our butts).

SK got his book and was happy.
Anyone want to help?

Do these guys attack brell worshippers?? i got a lvl 1 i use to pull peoples corpses out but ran near ratman and conned them as scowl but not sure if they attack or just con that way like the flighty fiends

I was in there today with a lvl 3 rogue and I was not attacked by anything no matter how close I got. I was in sneak/hide mode though, and the ratman guard was not up at the time. Was fun though.

The gargoyle, in the cave adjacent to Jaeil, owned my lvl 1 brell rogue halfling while he was in sneak mode. That's about as far as I've gotten with him.

If you make a halfling rogue of brell, if you use sneak/hide (and only if you use sneak/hide) .. you can pretty much walk through the entire zone untouched. The key is using sneak/hide. Some things will not attack you if you worship brell, even though they con scowls. The ratmen and the revenants WILL attack you if you are not using hide. So pretty much your best bet is to make a halfling rogue of brell, get a SoW from a druid or ranger, then zone in to the hole,and start hiding/sneaking from zone in. You can pretty much walk through the whole zone untouched so long as you don't drop sneak or hide.

Yes, they will attack Brell worshippers. My lvl 1 rogue got jumped by one during my first explorations. If it cons kos, it will attack you if you are in agro range. Flighty fiends, if they con kos, must just have a very low agro range, but I thought they werent kos. Anyway, the only safe way through this zone to Master Yael is sneak/hide. Just dump all your beginning points into agility. Who cares about a scout and body puller's stats anyway? Agility will help you go faster. Even with my lvl 1 sneak/hide it is not so bad with agility as high as possible at creation.

Yes I was with Gubba when we did it, it was quite fun. I died on 2nd attempt, but on 3rd attempt, was a success.

We let Gubba tank for a good 15 seconds, enough time to get aggro and keep it. Then the monk jumped in and started meleeing. I stepped back and used my Trueshot disc and was doing 300 - 500 dmg per arrow. It lasted a good 2 minutes, couldn't keep the warrior mezzed, so chanter charmed it. he he. But we got the job done and Gubba was very happy, he even danced.

I, lv 55 shadowknight got my tome with help of 4 great peeps. Me, lv52 monk Icemann, lv54 cleric Shilow,lv55 ranger Gloon ,lv58 chanter Zufious and his alt lv53 druid Riro were exping in Hole, pulling from Rat jails to Ditch. Well anyways, Ice pulls couple rats and we notice other 1 is a Ratman guard! Im being the MA so I jump to guard and try my best keeping him on me, but ranger dies and we havto eva. We go back, rez ranger, buff, med to full and try to charge the room with guard and 1 warrior...get wiped.So we deside to try again, but this time we gonna be prepaired and so monk pulls both mobs to Ditch, mezzes and charm's the warrior and we give all we have against the guard...and WIN!(though cleric was oom, heh heh)

so the ratman can be done with 1 group even if all members arent 55+..just need little luck and gotta keep the guard on MA (and btw, even our lv 58 chanter couldnt slow him :( ....)

Does the dusty tome drop every time? How often approximately does this guy spawn? Can you get this tome if you haven't started the SK epic yet?

As far as is known, the book drops every time. You can get all the dropped parts before you need them, eg soul leech, boa, ghoulbane, drake hide, decrepit hide, key from the mimics, book from the ratman guard. I wouldn't recommend trying to skip parts of the quest in case your faction isn't high enough though.

easy way to get your SK epic faction up, get the seal from Marl in Kerra and then do turn in to Gerot in paineel, just open trade window and hit hide before you accept =) you can do this as many times as you want

Went down The Hole today, mostly to get some not too hard exp in a non too populated zone =) We started out as one group with me (52 sk), 55 cleric, 55 chanter, 55 monk and a 54 druid. Some guys in guild wanted to come too so we got a 54 warrior and the rest formed up in a group consisting of a 57 rogue, 53 chanter, 52 monk and a 52 pallie. The monk was pulling elementals, golems and ratmen, the works. All of a sudden he tells me that the Ratman Guard is up. Knowing this is a hard mob to drop we discuss it for a while and then decide to at least give him a shot (I love my guild, never afraid of trying, hehe). 54 warrior was designated main and when the pull came he was runed and took it a ways of from the rest of the melees. Cleric was doing CH on him but then she got summoned. Unable to get healed the warrior went down fast. Decided to tank the mob till cleric could camp or an evac could go off so I pulled him with a Shadow Vortex. All the melees were on the mob now and soon casters joined in. The first spell wasn't enough for taunt since the 55 chanter got killed, fast (aggro from rune I guess). A second spell established firm aggro though and I had it till I went down. We had the Guard at 10% when I bought it and I basically though we were screwed. Hearing cleric and druid say OOM in guild helped too =) Then I see in guildsay "Dead". Got a quick res and looted the Dusty Tome.

We were not prepared to do the Guard. In retrospect I'd say that 2 50 plus clerics could handle this, for us it was mostly a matter of the cleric not being able to keep up with the heals. Add to that a main tank able to keep the aggro, an sk isn't a bad idea due to the amazing taunt on the spells (once I had aggro it didn't leave me until I died inspite of several complete heals). A backup tank if the main dies and an assortment of damage dealers (casters or melee, whatever your preference is). Not an entirely easy mob to kill due to the high damage output and the many hp's. I would recommend 2 groups, just to be on the safe side.
