So, I died several times just trying to GET to this dude, as a solo necro at lvl 52. DO NOT TRY THAT. However, I gained some levels, and came back as a newly coined defiler at level 59. I followed the advice of a separate commenter, used find, selected halls of betrayal, and like they said it led me right to the hut. The process was difficult. I equipped several dots, greater invis (not regular, doesn't work on most mobs like the scaled wolves), feign death as an OS button, gate for same reason, and snare for crowd control. And exile undead cause there are occasionally pesky skeles, it came in handy. So after killing the ancient guardian, and working through the slave tunnels mob by mob, and after losing both my bet and merc SEVERAL times, I eventually had inched my way to the hut. Lo and behold! This guy was up, without me having to kill a single PH! He has two herb collecter sarnaks RIGHT next to him, so unless you have a chanter, forget about fighting him one on one. My invis wore off right as I saw the other two, and suddenly any planning was out of the window. I knew I could take this guy, but I also knew I couldn't kill all 3. I had a healer merc give me, her, and my pet temp prior to this, waited for her to have full mana before I even went in. As they were obliterating my pet, I dotted and nuked the absolute crap out of him, killing him within about 30ish seconds, grabbed the manisi herb, and gated! Finally, I got it! He has about as much HP as the herb collectors, and the highest hit I saw was about 160. He also bashes/stuns. The herb collectors cast Malaisement, which lowers resistances.

I am camping this mob for two necromancers working on the epic 1.0 at the moment.
After killing PH, A Di`Zok Herbalist, 5 times, Grand Herbalist spawned. Dropped Manisi Herb. Woot!
Killed the PH again 9 more times, maybe 10...I kind of quit counting lol, and Grand Herbalist spawned again and dropped the herb again! Yayz

I know of the easier way to get to him, by going through the water, but if anyone has trouble getting to the hut, you can use "find" to go to Halls of Betrayal, and following that path (can invis part of the way, but a few skellies along the way) and it will take you right to the hut.

I got 20 or 21 PH's in a row (lost count) before 1 Herbalist spawn. NO herb, so still counting... When camping the illusion mask with my rogue and bard which is around the corner from this guy I only saw him spawn 2 or 3 times. Getting the mask for my rogue took around 8 hours and after 6 hours of camping with the bard I gave up. So in a total of 20 hours in this area, klling the PH each time, now I have seen him spawn 4 times... kind of depressing.

PH in wrong spot

Have been camping the hut for 3 days now off and on. Have not once seen his PH spawn. Was wandering thru the zone and found the PH partially stuck in a wall near the north east section by a small body of water. Killed him and now he is back in his little hut.
Epic frustration!

The named is easily solo-able by my 71 necro 600+ AA's. That's a no brainer. However, I have only seen the named 2 times in what is now 10 hours of camp time. He has failed to drop the herb in the 2 times I have slain him. If you are planning on attempting this camp bring something to do to kill the time between the 16 min spawn timer and the loooong time between when the named actually spawns. I understand them wanting to keep a challenge in the 1.0 epics, but rare spawn with "rare" loot? That's a bit much if you ask me! Revamp the fights, take out the tedious!!!
Got the drop :)

got the herb to drop today. went thru 4 placeholders before Grand Herbalist popped. dropped the Herb first time.
Got super lucky IMHO.

I swam all the way down until I found what I believe is the Herbalist's hut - it's near the zone out, LOC +155, +35

I was right - that's the loc & I killed him solo & he dropped the herb! YESSSS!

Took my lvl 55 necro there today. The Dizork herbalist was there, killed him, and Grand herbalist spawned next. Very easy kill with a lvl 55 necro and 58 pally. Dropped the herb right away.

My Experience
# Jul 06 2007 at 6:53 AM Rating: Decent
Well based on reading the other posts I would say I got pretty lucky on this one. I got the Manisi Herb last night (July 5th, 2007) with a raid force of 16 toons (by the way, 16 people is way overkill, but with 2 previous attempts of 6 people, failed attempts i might add, whipped at hut, we figured to be on the safe side) comprised almost completely of fellow guild mates of 'Unobjectionable Tag' we arrived at the herbalist hut to find the grandmaster waiting for us. Killed him with no trouble and also no herb on him. Next spawn was again the grandmaster and he indeed dropped the herb that we had worked so hard for! Now just a few more full raid forces to kill mobs in Lake and retrieve items from Plane of Fear, Plane of Hate, and Plane of Sky..... great, sounds like.... fun. Sorry to bother you fellow UTag members, but there is much more work to be done.
this part is Bull*&^^

Well - 6 hours, all PHs, not one spawn. I am beginning to think this is broken.
Soloing this spawn
# Oct 05 2006 at 12:33 AM Rating: Decent
For everyone, like me, who didn't get this done before pet pulling was nerfed, this can still be soloed pretty easily. Best strategy I found was to lev above the little lake next to the halls of betrayal zone line, and make sure you can see inside the hut from where you're floating. Either hit him with some sort of aggro spell, or hit one of the adds around him with snare. You'll probably get 3-4 adds depending on what's up. Run over to the HoB zone and when he gets close to you, snare him. Zone in to HoB, wait about 30-40 seconds, zone back, and he should be sitting there by himself. Rinse and repeat with PHs until the real one spawns.

You could probably just FD instead of zoning, but I found that since a lot of his adds are spellcasters, I tended to have my FD broken since they continue to cast after you feign. Good luck.

He is on a 16min timer like the rest of the zone, the herb is not rare, not common, just uncommon.
A level 65+ necro could hold the spot easily, under that it depends on the skill of the necro and on his gear.
# Jul 02 2006 at 9:20 PM Rating: Decent
Okies, firstly , he is not a 1hr spawn.. i have had him spawn now 4 times in a row, but no herb yet cry...

Had some idiot come and train me and my entire group(alts) and with 15+ mobs.. hasted etc was way too many for me to care to try to take..

Came back and he was up again

Swords/Ring no herb yet..

Common gimpy mob.. glad its spawning but common.
Manisi Herb Question
# Dec 19 2005 at 10:51 AM Rating: Decent
Is the manisi herb a common drop?
# Sep 18 2005 at 9:54 PM Rating: Decent
solo'd him and his ph's tonight, level 60 with 18 AA's and virtue (definately need virtue)... took 2 pops before he dropped it... 18 min spawn time... easy to single pull, just use the level 48 pet spell and pull him to the Halls of Betrayl zone in with it, you won't get any aggro...

thanks to Fcseven for the instruction and aid ;)

# Mar 18 2005 at 5:32 PM Rating: Decent
Can be soloed by 70 nec.....killed 3 ph's before he popped.....dropped herb 1st time.
Was fun getting there,and ended up having to fight 2-4 mobs a few times.

Did'nt have much of a tactic once i was in room....just attacked the center mob ( ph or grand herbalist )....hit with dark nightmare 1st, got aggro and just kept soulspiking while pet was on adds.
Would'nt advise this tactic though unless u have lots of aa's etc.

I finished my epic last week (Feb 8, 2005) and put together a scrapbook full of details that aren't generally found in this or other walk throughs. I hope you find it entertaining and/or useful.
