I have never seen this guy in the throne room. For us he is always in the graveyard. He's lvl 55, snareable, slowable, mezzable, he does harmtouch the puller so FYI.
Also, he drops TWO tainted swords.

I have been camping the Keeper of The Tombs for about a week. There is a post that says throne room. The map I was using has the throne room on a higher level, also on this map is the label Keeper of The Tombs. This is where he was. This not his exact spawn point but is a few feet from the throne where he spawned, -171.69, 243.57, -299.37 and there is four mobs there like the other post said, they are "spirit of the old city" not the constructs. I do not know the spawn time as I started camping the throne with the constructs and then had another character camp the other throne room here the Keeper of The Tombs spawns.

I have been hunting both graveyards but never seen the Keeper, can anyone please tell the location of it? Have they move the spawn point of it since I am A return player and trying to get my pally epic. Thank you!

OK, I reply to myself:)

I finally got him yesterday after server back up in the “throne room”! He is standing on the chair with four mobs. Loc should be -180 +266, hope this helps other pally going after our FD. Btw, he has no pet with him and dropped the sword.

Ooops, was using the old EQ Atlas map. The Keeper is not where it shows. Use the mapfiend map to find him....

Keeper of the Tombs Slain

Keeper was slain at 2:40pm eastern standard time, February 25th on the FV server. Definate a 5-7 day spawn timer. Started camping the spawn point on Friday, 2/22 at around 3:00pm eastern standard time and he spawned at 2:39pm, 2/25.

Good luck to all the rest of you pallys. This is definately the longest part of the whole epic 1.0.

- Please remove 2 day respawn tag, it hasn't been confirmed.
- 7 days is possible, since it spawned 7 days + some hours after patch = someone may have killed it right after patch hoping for good loot, since many people train their alts in there now.
- One way to camp this mob: Run a character near to the throne ( with tons of food and water obviously), cast permanent invis vs undead on him, so that room or roamers wont aggro.
- Make an audio trigger for the word Keeper - and turn the volume on your computer so loud that it wakes you up when Keeper spawns :) it sees through IVU and will attack your happy camper. --> /ooc that you need him for the epic, go kill with the character that can do it.

I don't think two days is correct. When I arrived he was not up. This morning marked my third day here and he was finally up. I'd say the five day claims were closer to the truth.

This guys IS on a 5 day respawn, i been here 3days striaght with a guildie here while i slept and it still hasnt spawned,.. this is the bottle neck of the epix by far, with all the people that come here now with mercs and just kill for exp they just think its some kinda named that will drop good loot or something. id say if your goin to do the pally 1.0,.. get this drop first then do the quest.
Spawn Time and Loc

Can i get a confirmation on: does this mob spawn at Neg -300, pos +275? and is it 2 or 5 day spawn.. sitting here stinks.

UPDATE: June 15, 2008
He Spawned!! I don't know re-spawn time but I sat for 2 days. He conned Green to a 75 pally (was a cake walk). He spawned at loc neg -180, pos +266 and was killed at 7:18am CST on povar. The hardest part is waiting on the timer to spawn.

How i did it...
Pretty much i found the south most room under where he spawns has a great corner to buff, med and camp. Its the SW most corner in that room.

respawn timer

The respawn on this guy seems to be 2 days

Soloed with my 66 pally on Stromm at 18:29:18, Jan 14 2007.

Cleared adds first; final fight was unremarkable, except for the fact that somehow the Keeper stuck himself in a wall once I aggroed him and kept summoning me... I couldn't see a thing, had to play in third-person, and only my damage shield and spells would hit him. Kinda ticked me off.

Ah well. 20,400 HPs; DPS of 80. Easy money.

Had a ranger at the very enterance with 200 tracking skill. He was not on track, but after I invised and went as far as I could without running into undead, I saw he was on track.

So, I logged my 73 pally, buffed up with Ten, Wunshi, Fort, C6 and a good DS buff. (DS helps a lot because you can get jumped with 6 mobs if your not careful).

I hit an invis pot and that got me almost half way. Then I just used invis vs undead and tried to go the rest of the way undetected (I only had to stop a few times)

The Keeper of Tombs should be marked on your map, so hes not to difficult to find. When I found his room, I cleared the doorway so I had room to fight. Used Pacify to pull him alone and took him down easy.

Took down today with 70 Paladin and 70 Druid.

Not immune to root/snare. Everything my druid cast landed on it.

Not a hard fight at all. Has quite a few hit points. Max hit on my Paladin was 220 vs. his 1617 AC. Is undead of course so Slay Undead helps. There are two other ghosts in the room, both "spirit of the old city" - Pacified them both and stunned the Keeper to pull her out into the hall.

Dropped Tainted Darksteel Sword only. Some coins also, but no other items.

Cheers and happy hunting.
Spawn time?

Anyone have any idea on spawn time for this guy? He was up but by the time I got a group together to go take him out someone else apparently had got him.
Sacred Key
# Oct 24 2005 at 11:53 AM Rating: Decent
I got the "sacred key" Oct. 23 off a Ratman, practically right outside the Keeper's door.

The Keeper wasn't up, but it was nice to be able to peak inside the room to check.

ETA: Also got the key again Oct. 24 from another Ratman out in the courtyard. The ones with bags attached to their belts seem to be the ones that drop (which someone has probably mentioned elsewhere, but now it's here, too).
