The Heart!
# May 06 2005 at 7:10 AM Rating: Decent
I got the heart tonight, as a level 30 paladin, with mediocre equipment. I will point out some things that I experienced.

The spawn you take does not matter. #5 on EQAtlas is fine, but there is another spawn on the other side of the large room in the center of the first floor, to the left inside the tiny room. Khrix Fritchoff agroed me as a high elf if I didn't hug the wall to the left coming up the stairs. This was pretty nasty at 30, but he never actually laid a finger on me. At one point, he rooted me but didn't cast anything else, or come to beat on me.

Anyway, there are a pair of wandering spawns that will assist BOTH ghouls. Really, there may be only one, but it will wander from ghoul spawn down the 2nd floor hallway, around the back, and back to the other spawn. This will either be a carrion ghoul, skeletal monk, or barbed bone skeleton. At #5 the wandering spawn WILL ASSIST through the floor, and in fact will usually dash down the hallway and back, agroing three or four extra spawns.

I got the heart from the other room, not #5. It really makes no difference, the heart is just very rare. I killed approximately 40 ghouls before the heart dropped.

I would advise rooting or snaring very, very heavily, or your ghoul will agro several adds unless you are in your mid 40's. The flee path leads down either hallway, which will get you barbed bones, dry bones, werebats, and carrion ghouls, in some manner of combination, and possibly Khrix as well.

As far as getting the spawns goes, I sat at the bottom of the stairs at #5, so I could monitor the wanderer, with IVU up. The other is fairly difficult to watch like that, although it's possible to sit on the staircase nearby and watch. Once again, it's best to use IVU. Kill ghoul, move to other spawn, repeat.

Hope this helps someone out in this slightly trying spawn. Good luck brother paladins.

Dude was completely right about the #5 spot for ghoul

Got the Heart to drop off a regular named Ghoul on the #5 spot on the Unrest EQatlas map.

So its the spot, not the name.

Ghoul Heart from 'regular' ghoul

Went to Unrest to start the Ghoulbane quest at level 25. Invis. to Undead to get into the building, and went to the Southeast tower (#5) as described in previous posts. Nothing there yet, so I ran around just to make sure I knew the layout in case something went wrong...

'Regular' ghoul popped (dark blue) and I figured this would be a long camp, but after dispatching him, found that he did have the no-drop Ghoul Heart after all. Was so happy with my luck that I stuck around and killed some more undead. Happy hunting all.

Ghoul Heart

The heart for the Ghoulbane quest does in fact drop off of normal Ghoul's I got one today off of "a ghoul" so i recommend tearing the place up and not spending time on just crazed. I got excellent xp at level 26 with my paladin , buffed with Aego and speed of the brood - free buffs from POK , i raked in 2 yellows in about 20 minutes :)
Camping the Right Tower

As a Morrel-Thule Paladin 30 with Instrument of Nife (DEX was at 97 and averaged a little less than one proc per fight), camped the Right Tower (marked #5 on EqAtlas map) solo and with a Paladin friend for several sessions (roughly estimated at about 30-40 Crazed Ghouls) before getting a Heart for each of us. The Right Tower is reached by entering the Manor from the front double doors. Turn left and go a couple of steps to the corner where you turn right and then make another immediate right into the large central room of the first floor. This room is usually crawling with undead so this is a good spot to mention that casting invis vs undead is a good idea before starting this short trip. Once in the large room go straight to the stairs which are on the front door end of the room (basically right in front of you as you enter the room). Go up the stairs to the left to the 2nd floor; once on the landing turn right for a step or two and then left up another set of stairs to the top of the tower. This is where the Crazed Ghoul spawns that I camped. I found this spot pleasingly immune to trains which suited me just fine.

The Crazed Ghoul is on a 12 minute timer measured over many spawns and with a high-level ghoul (blue to me at 30 as opposed to the first floor variety which is green) poping about 1/4 of the time. Do believe that high level ghoul can also drop the Heart but both our Hearts dropped from Crazed Ghouls. When soloing was able to med unmolested with invis vs undead; otherwise, there is a skelly that spawns right below the tower top and will attack through the floor and you have to go down and take care of it. This more of a nuissance than a real threat until it wanders off when low on HP to get its friends; blessings to Marr for granting me Root.

There are other Crazed Ghouls around on the 2nd floor. One is in a closet on the 2nd floor at the bottom of the stairs that lead up to the Left Tower where the Priest of Najena spawns (#4 on EqAtlas). Another I found in an open room at the back of the 2nd floor which leads to the Back Tower but he had too many friends so I left him alone.

Now that I have my Ghoulbane, I plan to go take care of all those "friends" I shied away from earlier.

The ghoul heart and the ghoul carrin are two different things. For the pally quest, you need the ghoul heart
Still working

Yes, this is still working. 5 of us camped inside the house for about two hours and it did drop from a crazed ghoul.

Was in Unrest tonight in a groep and we killed a crazed Ghoul. It dropped Ghoul Carrion, a no drop item. Is this the same as the heart?

I've been camping crazed ghoul's for the last 4 nights, have killed a lot, no one has seen a heart drop while I have been there. Is this quest broken now?
RE: Luvdaariel
# Mar 21 2002 at 6:18 PM Rating: Default
Was in unrest last night , found the heart on first kill, so no quest isnt broken

No, i am a pally and i havent gotten my epic yet, but i am pretty sure that it has to still drop, or else there would be no paladin epic. The thought that it doesnt drop anymore completely contadicts the fact that there is a paladin epic...

I think.

I'm on the GB quest but consistently find myself the only one with a level between 15 and 50 in Unrest. This makes it impossible to group and therefore impossible to get anywhere near a crazed ghoul, let alone kill one. It's been like this of 2 weeks now and I'm getting hacked off with it. Some of the high level guys are very kind and are trying to help me, but no heart as yet. Anybody else in this position?
Easy mob

Need a heart ;)
# Sep 19 2001 at 9:54 PM Rating: Default
After fighting for hours and hours for that dum heart off the crazed ghouls I got NADA... NO HURT, but I notived the Carrion Ghouls drop something that looked like a heart but was simply labeled "Carrion Ghoul" no drop item... Is this the heart? The crazed ghouls don't seem to be dropping it for me :(
RE: Need a heart ;)
# Feb 03 2002 at 1:46 PM Rating: Decent
No the Carrion Ghouls drop a ghoul carrion, but the crazed ghouls rare drop the ghouls heart. i Have seen it drop at least 3-4 times while fighting in unrest.

The crazed ghouls do drop hearts once in a while. I looted "A ghoul's heart" off one today.

Found one in the tower marked number 5 on EQatlas's map of Unrest which was consistantly crazed ghouls, and another spot, either on or next to the reclusive ghoul magus, alternated between high level ghouls and crazed ghouls. It was on the balcony, over the other side from the stairs.

A crazed ghoul dropped the heart for me, took about an hour and 20 mins of killing both the spots.

New Location
# Jul 10 2001 at 9:23 PM Rating: Decent

New patch and new location for these ghouls. Now located in towers...bar tower and top tower.

This makes it much harder to obtain ghoulbane. Now you have to clear a much harder spawn. Not sure if changing location is a good or bad thing

# Jun 25 2001 at 9:35 AM Rating: Default
Hmmm, never seen any bronze pieces after about two hours, but 7 hearts dropped. I shouted each time when it dropped, no one came to get it.

Well *****, if only I had been there to get one when u were shouting, I need one for the pally quest. :(

Loot Drops

Yes, I killed Crazed for 4 days straight, but after the last patch I believe Verant took the bronze out. I hunted them yesterday and didnt get a single bronze drop. Killed at leasast 30 of them. Although I did get a nice xollection of runes
# Jun 06 2001 at 6:55 AM Rating: Default
Looks like Verant thought that all the bronze armor being dropped was too much. Hunted for four straight days with bronze armor dropping EVERY time. Last night killed about 10 of these and the best thing was a bronze LS. - ugh.

ghoul heart
# Jun 04 2001 at 2:24 PM Rating: Decent
these also drop the ghoul heart, but i believe the ghouls that spawn in place of these also drop the heart (since we got one from them) these con mainly black and yellow to me at level 25, so they are at least level 22-26. they seem to drop mainly bronze bracers, arms and bp. the spawn by the water in the back of unrest and by the side door. the heart is -10 cha and no drop i believe.
they heart might drop off other ghouls, but have only found them on these. the heart is for the ghoulbane quest. Connan lvl 25 dwf warrior
