Easy camp
# Nov 22 2004 at 10:25 AM Rating: Decent
Been camping this guy for a few days now and it is extremely to solo for necro at 69... this can be done at 65 as well as long as u have CoB or Lost Soul... Have screaming terror up and mez the 2 that stand next to herbalist... kill herb with pet with an occasional DoT.. it takes patience but you can break the spawn... I had each spawn separated by about 5 mins each and made camp super easy for pet to solo almost... Hasn't dropped herb yet but have killed about 4 Grand Herbalists, have gotten sarnak parrying dagger, jiva spell, and various trade skill stuff
Altered Pop time?

1. Take the "back route" to get to him. From just near the exit of the zone back to Burning Woods DMF and then walk back to the zone so you are about 100 feet off the ground. You can enter a tunnel there that is MUCH easier to follow than trying to go through the mainentrance.

2. Did this with only two people. Me, 56 Necro with so-so gear, and 65 BL wiht good gear and over 300 AA. We made an awesome team. I tap and Bond of Death Duration tap and heal him with Shadowbound. Pets were pure carnage. Just mind your pulls. We had two bad pulls but managed them. He swapped mobs to hold agro. I kept him alive with heals and taps. Pets added the DPS to get mobs down. I used the Monk Pet.

3. It takes 2 hours to get him to spawn (or more) and he has the freaking herb about 1 time in 4. DEAL WITH IT. He is an even con at 56. He tends to have one 56 even con friend pop with him.
Get to the Herb House (6) on map and clear everything near it. Respanw is not too bad but clear the room before you touch the house. Room, House, Room ,House, Wash Rinse Repeat for 6 hours.

Good hunting. If on Rathe send me a tell I will gladly help you get to the location if you can get a group that is competent together. I may gate off after we get there but I will show you the way gladly.
Woot 1st try

OMG I am one happy Necro. I (64 Necro Ally in Chardock) was heading to Chardock B with my Druid (65 Amiable in Chardock), noticed he was up and jumped for joy. Of course had to figure out how the heck to pull. That was actually made very easy since Chardock B is right there. Had my druid pull him with snare (lasts long time) and zone since he pulled about 4-5 adds. Each time this guy would get closer to Char B and the adds less and less, so that at last he could just be attacked.

Well sent in pet and Dot'd the heck out of him, and Druid healed pet about 6-7 times during fight, and of course got very luck and he dropped Epic piece.

New Drop

Dropped "Flake of Lodestone" tonight - used in tradeskills
Just a few pointers

Just got the drop off this guy, me a 65 necro, and a person boxing a 60 chanter and 65 cleric did it easy. Ph was there, killed it, next spawn was Grand Herbalist, dropped the manisi herb.. game over... stuff around the herbalist dropped decent stuff and some kunark spells. Try to clear out the junk from around the hut before pulling the hut, and when we tried to paci the herbalists sidekicks right next to him, they still came when we tried to single pull him.. so suggest pacifying him and pulling them first. Also when i pulled him, the sidekicks dispelled my snare.

Thats about all the info i have.. good luck to you all on this.

Soloed him last nite. Have a mage CoTH you to the safe spot by Char B. I was able to pull this mob last and all the placeholders with a 56 monk pet! I pet pulled a boatload of mobs to the charB zoneline. Did a Layhands on pet...Rooted Herbalist and zoned. Wait 60 seconds zonback in and Wha La!! Hes all alone Its almost the same strategy as killing the Freeport Captain Valon(Soulfire)

Ok me and my buddy camped this last night. I boxed a 65 cleric and 55 paladin, he played his 65 necro. Our gear is ok, not super or anything. Overall a fun camp and pretty easy to pull & hold using pacify and being careful. Monsters are low 50 to 56 or so, shaman sarnak and warrior dogs. Some interesting little drops and also decent cash drops. We just camped in the herb hut and left the placeholder's body there for a timer. He is over 55 so the corpse stays 30 minutes so you can just watch the timer on it and when it gets to 12 the new one will pop.

It is important to try and keep the area clear of sarnak as they buff the dogs and heal monsters you are fighting in the hut. Also, if you don't have a slower make sure you dispell the monsters if they have been buffed, there is a HUGE difference in DPS if they are buffed.

Now the annoying part, we must have camped 20 cycles of this room, got 3 Grand Herbie pops.. two sarnak parrying daggers and one jade meditation hoop. ANNOYING!! The guy is pretty rare in a remote dungeon and remote room of the dungeon and rarely drops the correct herb!! Just EVIL!

I did make it halfway thru 55 though so wasn't a total loss 8)

Finished a 7 hour camp with him only popping 3 times. He never dropped the herb.

Did a second 4 1/2 hour raid. He was up when we got there. Didn't drop it. Waited 4 hours and he finally popped again. Guess what, he didn't drop it again.

Grand Herbalist Mak`ha, not Mak'ha.
nice map of chardok
# May 30 2003 at 11:44 AM Rating: Decent
This map looks much better than any I have seen so far, wqould have helped if I found it BEFORE I went to chardok for this guy hehe. We killed him with 9ppl all 55+, had no probs even when we did get adds, bard took care of all of em for us, he also handled single pulling Grand Herbalist. All in all was a fun night, we got him after 2 PHs but he only droppped some rune and the parrying blade.
Pain, but we took him

My guild and I went and camped this guy for about 4 hours today. The pulls down there are real tough even for a monk to get them split.
Usually had 2-3, not really a problem with a 52nd and 56th level chanter along.
Druids charming the dog creatures didn't hurt either.
We actually only had high level druids for healers :LOL, but other then the Monk didn't have a death, and I was able to rezz him the one time he died.
We were just about to give up and call it, when he popped and we took him out super easy.
Dropped the herb and I'm on to the next part of my epic.
Found really good info in the chat area of
It has some nice info and one of the messages there has a link that has a good map to the Herbilist area

This was very helpful. I was finally able to get down to him. The map on the link was perfect. We even got him after 2 or 3 PH's. Sad thing was he didnt drop herb 8-(. However, we had a lvl 60 pally that was able to run in and pacify everything - after that, single pulling was a breeze (too bad we didnt try it b4 we got wiped the first time, lol). Anyway - I got some good info for my next trip down and it should be fairly easy to camp again. Good luck.

camped him for four hours last night and all we kept seeing was the place holder, a dizok herbalist. the respawn time on the ph is eighteen minutes not eight. was a good grind though, got 1.5 bubs of yel exp, it was nice= ) anyone know any tricks to getting him to pop? or is it all just luck of the draw = )

need a map
# Jan 29 2002 at 6:56 AM Rating: Default
could someone post where to find a map to this zone please
This guy is hard to pull solo
# Jan 06 2002 at 7:55 PM Rating: Excellent
Killed him a couple times to help necros out for epic. He is a single spawn in Herb House! When pulled you will get at least 2 adds that are hard to split even w/ a monk. There is a safe spot to pull to down there by a iksar slave forget name. You have 8 min spawn times in this area so you have to kill fast or you will have respawns on you! He hits for around 150 to 180 and gates at 5% so seive him and stun when he gets low if he gates get ready for a fun CR!
Manisi Herb
# Dec 23 2001 at 6:24 PM Rating: Good
Killed this guy in the mines today and he dropped the no drop, lore "Manisi Herb" which is used for the Necromancer Epic Quest! (at least I hope it is the right herb, correct me if I'm wrong)

Does this mob replace the royal sarnak herbalist since the Chardok revamp or something? he is found in the mines, in a house surounded by 7 Apprentice Herbalists...


RE: Manisi Herb
# Mar 04 2002 at 10:07 PM Rating: Excellent
yes, this is the new supply of manisi herb. damn VI... takes a good group to do... fast repops, lvl 50+ mobs
RE: Manisi Herb
# Apr 30 2002 at 2:01 PM Rating: Decent
I believe you should be thanking VI for this change. Now it takes only one group to get to him, as opposed to the full Chardok Royals raid force and the off-chance that the royal herbalist was up. Now you get a chance that he pops every 8 minutes. This is an awesome place just to go and get exp with the right group.
#Anonymous, Posted: Nov 04 2001 at 1:19 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) this guy is acually lvl 27 lol i beat him wit a 27 warrior easy P
