I recently took up camping this mob. In camping him off and on for 3 days (total of approx 15 hours) he spawned a mere four times. We got 2 sets of gloves, incinerate bones and acumen. Our intent was to attain the Shroud of Undeath spell for myself. No Luck.

With luck I came across the spell for 8k in the Bazaar on Zeb, from looking here, it seems I got quite a deal. Just my 2cp worth on the camping experience of this mob.
Yup indeed

Shroud of Undeath

If this guy drops the spell Shroud of Undeath, how come it isn't listed on his loot table?

With lots of skill and luck, I was able to get to and kill Battle Master Ska'tu last night with my 64 shaman and 61 druid (both played by me). Charming of a dog was essential towards the end. If charm broke, I'd have been dead but it held out till the named went down. I got 3 or 4 mobs on the Battle Master pull but I was able to slow and control them after some cross healing (druid heals shaman, then shaman heals druid).

He dropped the Jeldorin and Incinerate bones, which seem to be his rarest drops. I'm quite happy, and my pally friend will be too when he logs on tomrrow and gets a free Jeldorin.

This is the 3rd Ska'tu I've killed (other times I wasn't doing it alone). One of them dropped nathsar gloves and the other dropped the revenant bauble. Jeldorin is very rare...there is a faction farmer shaman on my server who (at least the last time I talked to him) said he got 2 jeldorins total and he spends LOTs of time in chardok taking out named.

here's a pic of his spawn point. you can see the waterfall (near where bridge keeper spawns) in the background. Battle Master is targeted in the lower right hand corner

Actually, this is a "comments" forum. What brought you to a conclusion that this is only for questions and answers?
Shroud of Undeath

Got lucky the other night camping this with some good friends (56 Enchanter, 56 Cleric, 60 Shaman, 60 Monk, 54 Wizzie, myself - 57th SK). We were there for approximately 4 hours and saw the SK spell drop... twice.

The spell procs for me just as often as the vendor-sold Shroud of Death, and is fun to play around with (though people ask what weapon that 'necromancer' is using now...). I managed to win both copies so one is currently up for sale on Morell-Thule. Look for Rhowne.
Pop and drop rate

we camped this area for about an hour and a half, hes on the same timer as the rest of the area, got 3 of him and 1 PH, 3 Nathsar Guants dropped, that was about it, we were hoping for the spell for my SK buddy, but no luck. We had a level 60 paladin with 107 AAexp points so this area was easy as pie, any other time and its a real pain.
Common drop
# May 30 2002 at 6:11 PM Rating: Default
The gaunts commonly drop off this guy and the Jeldorin is his ultra rare. We had 3 guants during our 8 hour camp there.
Jeldorin does drop

Had it drop jeldorin today on Quellious
# Apr 11 2002 at 4:59 AM Rating: Default
Jeldorin even drop of this guy anymore??
Necro spell
# Apr 03 2002 at 12:10 AM Rating: Decent
He dropped Incineration of Bone
Some Info
# Mar 18 2002 at 9:06 PM Rating: Good
Ska'Tu spawns in the Graveyard, around neg400, pos400. His Placeholder is another Skelly, Reanimated Berserker if I remember right. Funny Verant made him to be not undead, so forget Nife or Holyforge when fighting him.

We camped him today with
60 Warrior
60 Bard
57 Cleric
55 Monk (replaced by 56 Shadow Knight later)
55 Paladin (guess who? :P)
54 Enchanter

We had no problems getting or holding the camp until Chanter went LD once. In case you get a wipeout, you better have a Necro on your friends list and some coffins in the bank :)

He popped four times for us and of course never dropped the Jeldorin. He always dropped the earring though, this seems to be is common, Jeldorin the rare drop.

You get awesome exp at this camp, you have fast respawns, dungeon bonus and nice loot. Get some friends together and kill some skellies :)

Btw, I heard you see him wielding the sword when he has it (like with the rest of Chardok mobs, Wristsnapper, Mallet, SBS and the like)

Any information on where this guy spaws would be helpfull.
# Dec 23 2001 at 12:41 PM Rating: Decent
heh I have this sword on E'Ci and basically every paladin I know, uber or not, wants it. The proc is a 162 hp self heal and it does proc quite often *usually 3-7 times per fight* In any case I will probably never get rid of this sword. The ToV 1hs are very nice dmg wise but you really cannot beat a 162 hp self heal proc especially when soloing so its always good to keep around, and dont tell me paladins cant solo to 60 because I will need to ***** slap you.

If he dropped an earring with bobbing corpse, it's the Shai`Din Revenant Bauble which is SHD/NEC, 2ac 35hp 35mana eff: Bobbing Corpse, 1.0 cast time. Effect is +50PR, Levitation, Enduring Breath. Nice for the Shadow Knights because it was working for me as low as 52 and SKs get Bobbing Corpse at 55.

The Paladin sword and other misc banter
# Nov 21 2001 at 7:06 PM Rating: Default
That little sword he drops.. as you can see has a dam/dly ratio of 19/24.. The Sword of Blessings from Velketor also has a ratio of 19/24. How is the dam/dly any better if they're the same? But I'm not a Paladin, you say.. The SoB is the Shadow Knight equivalent with equal stats, different effect. Don't underestimate Purge effect on the SoB either. Purge (instant) is priceless for PvP. Imagine the look on the poor shaman's face when you simply click away a row of DoTs. Also remember, the Sword of Blessings has 10ac on it as well. Our friend the Battlemaster also has the 55 Shadow Knight spell, Shroud of Undeath, which has, on top of a tap proc of around 50 (I believe), Illusion: Skeleton. Great for you fatty SKs =)

Heh sword of blessings is 19/25
RE: The Paladin sword and other misc banter
# Nov 23 2001 at 2:12 PM Rating: Default
Oh yeah =/. Ah well, the 10ac and effect is still nice on the SoB. So it all depends on what your taste/environment is like. The one from Velketor is not too exceedingly diffacult to get, and it's no drop. Sometimes you'll see people shouting that one dropped and it's up for grabs. This would be a good one to switch out for the other one when you needed more ac or to get rid of some DoTs.. or when you needed that nice buff effect and to hit faster and change without stopping damage. Or when a friend needs to borrow a weapon you can have one in your pocket with similar damage output. They're both nice, I can just get money from the one in Chardok ;D

Thank you, all i wanted to know is if a grouup of 55's could take this guy down, instead I see a page of people babbling about the SoB and selling this one. If hes blue at 55 then its time i visited him with a same lvl group. For all you guys wanting to sell it, go for it. As a 55 pally i've never made to money to buy this bad boy. At 60 most pallies equiping a one hand over the 2hand are using the 27 29 sword from hate.
# Nov 07 2001 at 7:10 PM Rating: Default
umm, you looked at the sword that drops in Velks? DMG to DLY Jeldorin rocks it, plus, the effect is just that much sweeter... I dont know about you, but I would trade a Sword of Blessings(if it were dropable) for this baby ANY day...
SK Spell Dropped
# Nov 06 2001 at 3:30 PM Rating: Decent
The level 55 SK spell, "Shroud of Undeath", dropped off the Battle Master for us the other night. We had one group that took him down: 59 Chanter, 58 Monk,60 Rogue, 54 Cleric, 54 Druid, and 53 SK.

Whats it do?
RE: SK Spell Dropped
# Mar 27 2002 at 4:42 AM Rating: Decent
Shroud of Undeath is an ultra rare spell, it is the same as Shroud of Death, but it has a skelly illusion.
RE: SK Spell Dropped
# Jul 16 2002 at 1:11 PM Rating: Default
I've seen more Blessing of Aegolism's, Torpor's, and Koadic's Endless Intellect's for sale, than I have Shroud of Undeath... :(

Gonna suck having to camp this guy for that spell... Grrr, talked to some people who did over 30 camps on this guy and got nuthin
# Nov 06 2001 at 7:03 AM Rating: Decent
Saw him drop an SK/NEC earring, forgot name but, was ac2, hp 35, mana 35, clickable bobbing corpse. Pretty nice item, frees up one spell slot when i travel or nice mana bonus for a necro at max int.
# Nov 04 2001 at 8:47 PM Rating: Default
he is just b4 the royals (behind waterfall) not a newbie camp it takes fast paced speed to get to it b4 back spawn mobs jumps you (assuming going in with 1 team) but this sword is not as good as the pit sword off velk damage wise
