Fairly easier camp

Pretty much happened for me the same as others have said, one of the easiest corrupted for me.
waited at loc +0/-0 near the small tree and killed brownie's as they spawned until the tainted spawned, the corrupted spawned straight after killing the tainted.
Took me about and hour or so
Simple solution

Only thing I did was bring my 85 mage...BOOM...end of story. lmao (Moral of the story...use the biggest guns you have and the little bugger won't know what hit him.)
Mobs and Spawn Times

Three brownie scouts pop by the little tree near 0, 0. Two pop at the same time (one to the right of the tree and one to the left), and the third (slightly off from the tree) is two minutes behind. There is a 16 minute spawn time between the first brownie scout kill and the first brownie scout re-popping.

I lucked out. I killed all three scouts, sat down and waited. On the second round of spawns the last scout popped tainted then corrupted immediately after the kill. No killing other mobs required.

Ok camp for hours at 0,0 stay up on lil hill toward the orc camp. Over 3 hours aafter I killed Esqruelle (spl)the Corrupt still no Tainted. I remebered from years and years ago helping another that you should clear the brownie camp/merchant far corner of zone. I killed all 3 ph at 0,0 and went to the brownie outpost. Beware guards hard to kill both they heal each other almost bit the dust. Im a 55 druid. NUked one down with lil mana left and dps other had thorns on and lil sidekick bear. Used the free clicky dot drones of doom till I regened mana to pop some more. Noble out side easy solo ... rest inside cabin easy one or 2 dot kills. Merchants cant be harmed.

Ran toward 0,0 and low an behold out popped tainted but took to long and popped both ph too. Was still low mana and forgot in haste to med. Hit snare on tainted then then rooted ... Bad idea make sure liek I did to spread out spawns of 3 ph in case a tainted pops a ph or another tainted wont aggro. I took to long on outpost camp clearing and they all 3 came up. Used JEster and servant had tainted on the run when both ph scouts paTHED/AGGROED on me.

Was bad thing. Never fear!! always use your skills. At 55 alot of dots do no harm to me from scouts but they can still wack on yea pretty good. Snare/rooted scouts off and used the clicky drones of doom arm on all. Left pet on tainted to keep his regen down some. Took one scout at a time fourtuanaly thorn were still up and had the selfbuff thorn armor on. Was slow process. Killed them both when mana regen (potions casue no lazy *** chanter to kei me) gave me enough to squeeze out a few dots. I was really gonna kick my jester *** all I got was the food/wine and POOFIE turned me into a godam fairy. I was like Im gonna die a fairy.

Anyway I went after tainted with track and I guess my pet had came back to laugh at me casue tainted was almost regent half but was still on his slow/snare run from low health. I guess he was to busy hiding in shame some fairy and lil cub bear was beating his butt he kept slow run away instead of reaggroing like most do at like 20%. Luck I guess.

Then to my amazzment jester coughed up a full mana while Iwas following and sitting some then and it was on. Conserved mana and dotted used pet. He died then Corrupt spawneed and did not aggo on pet who I had called back pet. REal nice. Recasted thorns on me and pet and went at Corrupt. All was well untill I realized he was taking my health down and for some dumb reason I unmemed my only heal to recast thorns... (note to self your a jackass). Anyway with full dots on mob and my health dropping too I nuked Socria untill he died with me at 30% health left. (Steadfast servant and jester saved me big time)

A gloroius fight for 4 or 5 hours of sitting. I did clean off my computer table some during the wait. Trust me was much needed. I wonder where the hell all those case screws I found in the carpet came from. Oh well my first build and its not spouting lava yet.

To recap EQstrell the courupt did not effect anything. Maybe I should have cleared the spawn at 0,0 first like I did before I went to the outpost. Clearing the far corner brownie outpost might have caused the trigger. Could have been a coincidence, but if you read other corrupts and clearing this might have been helpfull. Even at 55 level with virt on this brownie was no joke. I could have soloed the whole thing with my 80 cleric who is solteris geared to the 9's 20k hps 19k mana with the vowvalor/retrubution thing. But I dropped outta guilod/raids to have some fun with my first toon a silly druid who got me into more crap than I can recall in the last 9.5 years. She deserves her epic and Im doing it as old school and solo as I can. Plus to many buddies are stuck redoing Frostcrypt 1 and 2 causee of low numbers (ducks) and cant come help or wont. So have fun its why we started playing this godam game.

Ps yes there are typos and at 130 AM with a 5am wakeup Im sorry Im to lazy.

Where is that lil fairy casting JEster Im gonna kiss that ****.

Confirmed on 9/8/2007

Sat at location +0/-0 (notice the small tree) and killed the brownie scouts that spawned there until the tainted spawned. Took about 1 hour.

Been killing everything around 0,0 for two hours tonight and no spawn, killed equestrielle, killed everything i could see and no brownie lived longer than a few seconds. I'm becoming extremely frustrated and was wondering if I missed something in how to spawn this guy?

Almost immediately after posting this I had two tainted spawn simultaneously, I pulled one way and rooted the other, but it kept breaking so I had two on me, killed one and the corrupted was just too much at that point. After over two hours of camping for this piece of the epic, I died at the hands of two tainted and a corrupted, lol. What are the odds?
Nothing to do with Horsie
# Jun 04 2006 at 2:20 PM Rating: Decent
After hours of killing at 0,0 inc. the horsie the only thing that brought it out was killing the 3 places holders.

I took my wifey (Druid) to be her hitter. The Druid pop I root, she dotted, they died...We waited 12 mins to see if the ph worked.

Eventually they did

When i killed Equestrielle the Corrupted, the tainted brownie spawned.
Equestrielle the Corrupted
# Jun 11 2007 at 9:20 PM Rating: Decent
I would like to confirm several posts stating they killed Equestielle the Corrupted and the Corrupted Brownie didn't spawn. I have also killed Equestrielle the Corrupted twice (the horn is a nice clicky heal for tash for non-cure casting classes!), but have yet to see even one tainted brownie in about four or five hours of constant killing. What a pain...

We killed Equestrielle in then NE part of the zone, ran back to 0, 0 and about 8 minutes later got the tainted. (Had to kill scout, currupted first).

Corrupted Brownie Notes...

34 posts
Camped the location stated in many of the other comments on this page, 0,0 , and yes right in front of a little tree the brownie scouts spawn. Some light blue, some dark blue to 52 druid. Only 1 of the 20 to 30 scouts I rooted and rotted healed himself partially, once. They are nothing to sweat. Each scout took ensnare 1x (none ever broke it) drifting death 1x, drones of doom 1x, creeping crud 2x, and stinging swarm 2x to drop. Sit, med, and wait for next spawn.

As stated previously, after about 20 to 30 scout spawns (about an hour and a half), the tainted brownie spawned. He was nothing more than a dark blue brownie scout with more HP. 2x all dots listed above and he dropped dead. Corrupted spawned.

Corrupted was a bit more complicated but nothing terrible. Started with a root and rot as with previous mobs, but as stated in many other comments on this page he summons and sometimes gets a few shots in of about 100 to 140 damage each. The key to this is to be aware and prepared to be summoned. Simply position your finger over the up arrow key and run a little ways right after you are summoned (your back will be to him), turn, then reapply dots, re-root (he broke root 3 or 4 times), or heal as necessary. I probably gave myself 3 or 4 shots of superior healing throughout the whole fight. When the fight ended I was at about 50% HP and mana was down to about 15%. He did appear to heal himself once or twice, but was more interested in summoning me, which was nice because my mana was getting low. He is soloable at 52 if you keep your head and try to conserve mana.

50 BST solo'd both
# Aug 21 2005 at 11:08 AM Rating: Decent
As a 50 BST I soloed both of the mobs for druid epic, while a druid in my guild sat there during the fight.. He looted his branch, we went on our way..
This is annoying....

Spawn info
# Feb 10 2005 at 3:31 PM Rating: Default
Ok, the Loc of Tainted spawn point is 0,0.
There is a small tree here from which 2 brownie Scouts seem to pop out of. The Spawn Cycle of the Scouts is 15 min 30 sec. These 2 are the PH for the Tainted Brownie, which will spawn the Corrupted after you kill it. As stated below, the Corrupted does summon.

Ran to Lfay for a rez. On my way back I ran into the tainted brownie. He conned blue to my 52 pally. As I ran past him he drew agro. I fought him and got him to 33% before I had to pop my LoH. Once he went down the corrupted popped and started woopin on me. I went from 78% down to 20% in about 20-30 seconds. I was buffed and have around 3500 hps. As I ran toward the entrance I clicked my jboots and was easily outrunning him until all of a sudden he starts to summon. He summoned me about 10 times before I zoned at 3% health. Only reason I lived was my jboots. Each time he summoned he got one hit in for around 136hps. I consider myself lucky and highly recommend you bring help if your gonna try to tackle this midget. I say a 60+ pally with 8-9k hps would be ok but still recommed you bring a medic with ya.

The drop you are after here is the Green Heartwood Branch.
# Jul 13 2004 at 9:31 AM Rating: Decent
Soloed him easily at 58. Rooted him and dotted him. Interrupted casting several times by summoning me but never got me below 60% health without healing myself. As long as he stays rooted, very easy mob. Hit for about 150 max.

This was with KEI and Virtue.

I ran into the tainted brownie with my 62 warrior today and he aggroed me, so I /ooc if anyone needs but nobody in zone did so I decided to take the little guy down. The tainted went down pretty easy but the corrupted was a little tougher. I was unbuffed at the time so I ended up having to use most of my disciplines to stay alive. After using mighty strike discipline and landing a couple 900+ crippling blows followed with my fortitude discipline he finally fell with my hp bar at 13%. I decided to add up the damage I did to see how many hit points he had and it came out to be 10477!! Sure wish I had that kind of hp. Anyhow, highest he hit me for was 127, and I'm not so sure that he is a druid, he never once tried to cast anything on me. Hope this info helps any druids that are looking for him.

-Tried to solo corrupted(dark blue)with my 65 druid and failed... He kept summoning me and interupting...Grabbed a 61 pally from LFay fresh off LDoN and got him no problem...
-The position 0,0 is correct there's a little tree there
-I would sit with SoE on and wait for spawn; watched from third person point of view...

Silly Druid Stun are for Magicians at 62 and at location 0,0 he spawns, attacks me Damage Shield hurts him, 61 pet(kitted & mage buffed) attacks, launch one 2320 damage nuke and pet already has poor singed brownie walking slowly away while my shrunken air pet stuns him to DEATH literally. Piece of cake.... not everything in EQ is kiteable, sometimes you simply need to pull out a can of Whoop **** and let brownie parts fly as they may.
And yes Dynamite Gozzaboom and nuke AOE during combat :)

I don't think this person was kiting him. Was more then likely root/rotting him for that would be the more appropriate tactic in dealing with this mob. You do tend to get summoned when you do damage.

I soloed this mob with my level 55 Druid. In reading the info here I decided to have a bit of a "Plan B". I bound on the hill a bit away from the spawn point and had Egress and Gate loaded. If he had summoned me to the point where I might be endanger of dying I would Egress to wipe aggro then gate back. Root and snare would make sure that he wouldn't go too far. As it turned out I did not need to Egress/Gate. Sure, I got beat up a bit on the summons but nothing that was overy bad. I just made sure I had my finger on the run button to get out of the way asap when I did get summoned.

From the tone of your post might I suggest that your "accomplishment" is not as great as you think it is.

Magicians have pets to protect them. That is why you had the time to get your nuke off. You had done very little damage to the mob so you were not summoned despite your pet stuns.

I got real lucky tonight. Camped the baracuda for about an hour and a half when tainted popped. Ran on shore and sure enough, he followed. Classic root & rot strategy with Immolate, Drifting Death, and Drones from ES Vams. I then head over to EJ hoping for a shot at the gorilla. Adds got to be too much after buffs ran out so I gate to LFay where corrupt brownie soundly handed me my own a$$ on a silver platter the night before. A high lvl LDoN group is happening to walk by and heals and buffs me up (Thanks Sheeyra!!!) Sure enough, I med back up when I hear /ooc Corrupt brownie up and at 9%. Immediately I start tracking this little bugger down, only he's not showing up on radar. After a few more /ooc's someone spots him south of the brownie merchants in all the shrooms with the fairies. By the time I get there of course he's up to full, but I decide what the heck. Snare, it sticks. Wait for the summon, back up a bit. Root, it sticks. Wait for the summon, and I start putting up my dots one at a time inbetween summons. Once all the dots are up, I sit and med or heal inbetween summons as needed. I think root broke twice, but I was able to get it back on him. After what I'm guessing is about 10 or 15 rounds of Immolate, Drones, and Drifting, he dropped.

At the time, I was 51, 249 WIS with KEI, had wolf form, Skin Like Nature, Thorncoat and Shield of Thorns, and Chloro for the duration of the fight.

Just goes to show you it CAN be done. The first time I met him, he seemed to resist all my snares and dots I threw at him, fight lasted MAYBE 2 minutes. This time, once I got the cycle of dots down in between summons, it was cake.

Just my 2 cp.
Not super easy
# Jan 12 2004 at 6:22 PM Rating: Decent
Going on everyone's representation on what an easy mob this misguided little girl scout is, I tried to solo him at 49. After being summoned more times than I care to imagine and before I could succor/port, he killed me.

I then got two very nice 58+ DE SKs (somewhat ironic - int-based, drow summoners helping out a wis-based, hobbit nature boy - you have to love Lanys) to help me out and neither of the SKs got below 95%. So, if you are young and eager bring a couple of big sticks to whack on the brownie and he will give up the loot.

Of course the drow wanted me to help kill the Pained Unicorn. Well, maybe after I have my epic.

Just for fun you all suck, I soloed the tainted and corrupted with my 55 warrior, amazing what the mighty strike discipline did to that little punk, i crit for over 400 8 times, sucker never had a chance

took this guy today at 51 with 4 heals from a druid. he likes to summon and is highly resistant to most stuns and roots. was a fun fight to say the least
# Dec 04 2003 at 5:28 PM Rating: Decent
Took out the Corrupted with a 56 Ranger and myself, a 55 Druid. The fight was easy as can be. Only healed the ranger once when he got to 60%. It took about 1 1/2 hours to get him to spawn.

Tried to solo him first but he won the day. Had him to 4% hp though.

Good luck to you.
Tainted/Corrupted Brownie
# Nov 26 2003 at 5:55 PM Rating: Decent
I am a 51 Druid. First thing I did was wolf form. Then proceeded and killed 2 brownie scouts and the tainted appeared. Killed him the same as the scouts with snare, root, and 3 top dots. I would recast root and dots when needed and med while they did the work. When the tainted died the corrupted spawned but did not attack me. I medded to full then snared and rooted him (he did not attack me yet) then I started to dot him with my top 3 again. Once I had those off I cast Starfire and Ice one after the other. He summoned me after third dot was cast and kept summoning me. I would attack with my Boned Scimitar and keep casting. Had him down to just under 70hp but mine was down to about 40 so I succored. He was still on track so I healed and medded. When I got back to him aggro was gone but he was full hp. I tried again but same thing. Dot Spells I used were Drifting Death, Drones of Doom, and Immolate. I tried to get help in zone to kill him but no luck. Went to BB and got some help, but by the time we got back he was no longer around. Tried killin the brownie scouts for awhile but no luck. Will try again later.

Details on fight / spawn

Ok, Hubby and I just camped for the corrupted.

The spawn point is 0 by 0 or so close as to not matter. They spawn, move a very short distance, buff, then wander.

There are 3 brownie scout spawns.

They are EXACTLY 17 minute spawns. (We were there for 6 respawns. Give or take a few seconds, and some allowance has to be made for how fast /time can be hit, they are 17 minutes.)

65 enchanter with pet
52 druid

enchanter had Arcane Rune knocked down and took a bit more damage on a second Arcane Rune over the tainted / corrupted fight so under 3000 hp, and probably a lot less

druid lost about 750 hp as well

pet didn't take enough damage to lose "uproar" so under 450 hp

pet was red to 52 druid, and corrupted took less than 6 nukes from enc (1100 hp each) and 5 from druid (612 hp each) so probably under 20khp for the tainted / corrupted combo
