If this guy is anything like the other epic NPC's, their spawn timers are anywhere from 24 hours to 48 hours.

No PH for Hand of Maestro

I was killing the 5 mobs in the hall in turn while waiting for the hand to spawn. When I killed the hand I waited around to see if the mob that people say is the "PH" or the other mobs spawned nexted.
It was the mob people refer to as the "PH" that spawned at the piano so it wasn't a PH for the hand as it should have been the mother mobs in the building that spawned. The "PH" mob spawned ontime in the 30 min spawn cycle.

I noticed the same thing, the Dark Evles aren't PH's...the Hand has it's own spawn time. I only needed 1 hand, so I have no idea what the spawn time is; if I had to guess, I would say it's the same as Kunark era spawn times, around 3 days....

I am a 60 warrior 10k hps plus cleric merc. I zoned in cleared 6 mobs on my way to the piano. So he is not far from zone in. Took maybe 10 mins to get to him. When I opened door to his room he is to the right. there was a mob at the bottom of the steps in front of the piano. and the Hand of Maestro was up on top next to the piano. I killed both mobs. They have a ton of hps for my level i was able to kill them at the same time with ease. Just takes a few, merc cleric keeps up np. He dropped the hand first kill. So I was probably lucky. Hope this helps.

After spending about 16 hours worth of placeholders in front of the piano, I logged in after a patch to find the Hand and the supposed placeholder in front of the piano up at the same time. So, in other words, I'm fairly certain there is no placeholder. It seems like it's just a timed spawn. What time time is tho, I have no idea. Oh well, I've got my hand.

I'm at the spawn spot for this pita now. I have killed the PH 3 times now and waited exactly 30 minutes for each spawn. No Hand yet, but I have lots of coffee :)

So i've been at my 1.0 epic for a little while now on the Nameless server and right now i'm currently stuck on this mob. I've been to and from PoHate trying to get this guy to spawn and so far, no success. A post below says there is a 20 minute respawn on this guy, which i'm pretty sure is a crock of you know what. Does anyone know if this mob has a PH that needs to be killed in order to make him spawn? Any ideas?

Ported up there, ran to spawn and it was waiting like a turkey dinner.

Hey, I've killed the DE in front of the piana to the right as you go in the door five times now...but no HoMaestro? Is there something I'm missing here? Like maybe I have to do a little boogey or something?
Any help would be appreciated.

As I posted above, I have been having a hard time with this mob as well- however i've been at it for DAYS. The server reset yesterday and still no luck. Oh well, good luck to us both then! ;)
Information on spawn

Since no one is smart enough to post what people need to know, I'll post my experience with this mob. He spawns at the piano to the right of the enterance of the building Maestro of Rancor is at. Hand spawns from the single mob that is by the piano, and has roughly a 20 min respawn timer. Killed the mob at the camp and then spawned the Hand immediatly after. Killed him with a 76 bst and healer merc with no problems. The hand went down in under 30 sec. and ran at 20% health.
no problemo

Solo'd him today with a 78 ranger, 340ish AAs. He does summon and is very spell resistant (couldn't get a DD to hit until he was <20%). But haste pot and self heal once was able to melee him ok. He does run $ 20%.

I was in small guild group with my 70 necro.

My necro could hardly touch him with spells. Almost all were resisted. I would reccomend using a pet as much as you can.

Duoed with 70RNG (about 8600hp with Virtue/self buffs, 300AA) and 65CLR.

He walked BACK into the church towards the Maestro of Rancor spawn when he got to 18pct health, agroing the 2 spawns near the door. Fight was still relatively simple - rooted off the adds, kept nuking/main dps on Hand until it went down, then was just straight dismembering the adds.

Max hit was 542, didn't rampage that often. Cleric just used potions for HoT's for herself, kept using Holy Elixir on me and nuking the stuffing out of Mr. Hand.

Didn't bother using Earthcaller to slow.

killed him

I'm fairly ghetto in gear (5900 mana), but this was a reasonably easy fight. I did pop mend companion during the fight.

Spawn time looks to be 3 days.

Soloed this today as well, Lvl 70 Shaman. Kept Spiritual Serenity on myself, and just Panthered myself and my pet. Even with Malos in he resisted my best slows and dot's. Only hard part of the fight was when he started running and I couldn't stop him. Luckily he didn't make it too far out of the church.

Shouldn't be too hard of a fight for any lvl 70 class that can solo easily. It's pretty much a dps fight, and will need some form of heal.

Did this for my friends warrior today. Was a 68 bst, 67 cleric and 62 war. i tanked(68 bst) wasnt so bad, only time he really did hurt me was when i was meleeing. He does have a life tap proc called Vampire Touch, wasnt to bad only about 175 or so couldnt really tell if it went off alot or not cause he does hit in 400s. He does also rampage, my pet decided to get the ramp agro. He does run at 20% hp. over all its an easy fight.

Very easy, soloed with my 70 enchanter. I charmed a knight of hate, sent him in, couldnt really land any spells on it, so i cast rune on my pet maybe 6-7 times. Looted the hand, and MQ it with a warrior in my guild who needed it.

2-boxed 66 DRU/BL combo ornate/baz VTish gear lvl reasonably buffed. DRU has 200+ aas and ft15, clairvoiyance.

Kinda rough, had to root off an add to get it off healer. Once add was managed it was a pretty routine fight. Very high MR never got him slowed or snared. Chased him down the block and nuked him down with druid. Finished fight with 40m.

Very fun! Had me shaking a little, but maybe I just remember how hate used to be...

Was just messing around in Hate and had 2,65 Mag's with Low AA's and myself a well equipt Enchanter and took down the Hand with ease, He is very MR and didnt get Hand slowed but I was able to tank him using Upraor and AR and my ER he seems to be able to have FR nukes land on him, both Mags pets had Lay hands up, wasnt even a close fight and I only was self buffed
Easy Fight if your MR is high
# Aug 07 2004 at 3:07 AM Rating: Decent
We took him down very quickly with a group of 56 Cleric (me), 55 Rogue, 65 Beasty, 65 Chantress, 65 Ranger (did NOT have TS up), and a vbery nice bard I think was also 65. With bard resists, we were all around 300 MR and his lifetap never landed. With that out of the way, he fell before I had to heal at all.

Prior to the Bard's arrival we lost with a group of 5 becuase his damage took me by suprize. He had been hitting for nothing--around 70-200ish. Then all of a sudden, he got good and I was a bad cleric--he landed a double 440 on our BL followed by a tap and my CHeal was too late.

Moral of the story, use fast heal and get your MR high.
