Well here about the runner.

Behind the Foreman he is the second strongest grim around here (talking from infight). Additionally his runspeed cant get changed (now you know why his name, if wandered till now).

Hes output on ore might be around 50% .. but ... the hazard with him is 1.) that ore isnt his mainloot ... as mentioned its the pouch for the quest, and 2.) due to 1 he is a longtime spawn in the zone. I cant tell you the exact time, but I guess tsdeane's info wasnt that bad about his spawntime! So dont count on him talkin about smithin ...

Took him today with my 32 lvl Bst conned yellow, zone in from grimling forrest and there he was. Pulled him into zone cave with tainted breath and let pet do most of the work with the occasional assist untill he turned to run agianst the wall so he dint even get out of the cave!! Guess I was lucky =D.

Spawn Loc & time

the loc and time have been slightly adjusted as of the last patch. the loc is still near the tunnel to the grimling forest. -1500 by -1175. time is 90/100 minute. he will run from the spawn to the far Grimling mine and return. make route twice and despawn. (27 minute despawn). have watched the runner 6 times to make sure of this info.
Kinda Easy Kill

i wouldnt be able to tell ya about the 90 minute timer since i killed him only once. i was lucky enough to catch him as i was zoning in. im a 36 bst and i had temp on and as soon as i saw him upon zoning in i summoned doggie sent him in. while doggie was fighting i stuck proc on him and went in myself. he is a tough bugger he took me down to 38% but that was probably because i had 1hb weapons that i was still training with. dont know how hard i was hitting him for so i cant tell you how much hp he has. i used up all my mana on healing doggie as i stepped back when he got me down to 38%. he did run from me but doggie went after him unfortunately for me a wolfie got right in front of me and i didnt want aggro so i waited while doggie finished him off but i ddint see where they had headed off to. after doggie killed him i had to spend about 20 min looking for the ugly buggers body. neway as soon as i hit 39 and get my new spells and doggie im camping him since by then my doggie will be able to solo him with a couple heals from me :).

If the guy a few posts down can do it with a 36 ranger with a wurmy and shrpened mining pick and silver chitin handwraps, do you think a 33 ranger with the same weps and swiftclaw sash with temperance can do it? I really, REALLY need a rallic pack.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

Everyone makes this camp seem long and hard! BAH. I camped stormfeather 18 hours starit nufin. another day 31 hours nufin. then 14 hours nufin. 1 and a half hours to wait for this guy is not anthing, stop complaining.
# Jan 31 2004 at 12:29 AM Rating: Default
It was your choice to stupidly camp SF for that long; not everyone has waited that long. Granted, an hour and a half isnt a long time, but dont think youre all that just because you have no life and camp all day (31 hours in one day I guess?) So please, do us all and a favor and STFU. Thanks =)
soloed with 36 ranger

I have a 36 ranger with decent gear (but NOT twinked) and I was able to take this guy out easily 3 different times. In all cases he took me to about 50-60% health before meeting his own demise. I was using a Wurmslayer and a Sharpened Mining Pick along with Silver Chitin Hand Wraps. He hit in the 50-60's usually but not that often, and I got backstabbed once for 82 I think. He was much easier to kill than I expected.

He spawns on a 90 minute timer in the cave that leads from the Tenebrous Mtns. to the Grimling Forest zone. If you are standing at the mouth of the cave, facing in, he will spawn on the right and walk out along the right wall. The first time I caught him he was out of the cave, wandering along the south edge of zone between the previously mentioned cave and the grimling caves. This isn't new info, just my own personal observations which match what others have posted.

He wasn't moving all that quickly when I found/fought him. I had SoW up and had to zone the first time I encountered him because I immediately got an add since he was out roaming the zone. When I ran from him that first time he never caught me nor backstabbed me. Perhaps I was just lucky. His walking speed seemed like a normal mobs walk speed (i.e. he isn't always running full speed as the orc runner in butcherblock is). And when I had him down and he started to flee, he wasn't moving very quickly then either. Soon enough, he wasn't moving at all.

All in all, a fun quest to do.
Lost runner?

I've done the runner consistently for over a year, always getting him easily by sitting on the right side of the GF/TM zone tunnel as posted by most everyone. And always no later than 20 or so minutes late if I caught him early in the morning (assuming he wasn't killed in the wee smalls and the timer started late because he actually got to complete his trip).

So, yesterday, imagine my chagrin to only get him twice in 3 hours - the middle spawn he never showed, although I may have logged back on a couple minutes late - with Daylight Savings Time going away the clocks at home were a bit wonky.

Couldn't sleep, and he was due up at 4, so I got up at 3:45 and logged my runner killer on (camped at the tunnel entrance) - and at 4:30 STILL no runner.

When I did kill him Sunday, instead of exiting the tunnel and making his usual hard left towards Katta he wandered more straight, a bit to the right, more towards the vamp fort.

Anyone have any hard solid info on if his spawn time/point has changed? I'm not looking forward to searching all over TM for him - and as a warrior I don't have track - have some alts that need bags, so trying to restock patterns in between raids. Any solid info appreciated. Thanks. Smiley: grin

Im a Level 40 Beastlord i just finished the Acrylia Plans quest for the first time, the runner i figured would be a lil tougher but he was a breeze i waited inside of GF cave as posted earlier and in about 30 min POP there he was although he is a runner he never acctually ran he never even started to run he just kinda slowly walked out of the cave. So i agroed him as he came out killed him got the pouch and finished the quest. Quite fun Id have to say!

i'm a 45 Shammy and was hunting this guy with a guildy to get the Pack he drops. i was able to root him (if i remember correctly), so i think that's a mistake saying that he cannot be rooted. C ya

Can the runner be stunned or Mezzed? I am a 35 chanter who wants to solo him
# Jun 07 2003 at 6:39 AM Rating: Decent
He spawned outside of the far west caves for me two times @ 90 minute intervals. I was confused becasue the first time I tried to camp him I was at the first cave I came to on the south wall going west from Grimmling -- as that is what I thought was posted earlier, but when he didn't spawn there I went further west and POP!

Well after following all the advice here I camped the cave entrance to Grimling Forest and he sure did spawn in the cave at the corner. Easy kill for me LVL 45 BST. Camped the cave a few times and made/sold the packs for 500pp easy. Probably could have held out for more but where's the fun in standing in the Bazaar all day?

Anyway after a while of cave camping and pulling bats/wolves/aliens I got a bit fed up and decided to leave the runner alone and go hunt in the grimling caves. I chose the second cave as it seems to have easier single pulls (the one nearest Katta entrance) I'm now a LVL 47 BST and with KEI I can solo the entire cave almost continuously. Stopping only when I run out of slots for loot. The gems and acrylia more than making up for the lack of rallic packs.
BUT bonus, this cave is where the runner runs to. During a fight with an orefinder at the entrance I got the runner as an add!!!!. 90 mins later I get him again :) Later in the day I see him LEAVE the cave, on his way back to Grimling Forest perhaps? Dont know coz I killed him LOL!
So if you have the zone to yourself camp this cave, lots of acrylia + gems PLUS the runner :)

As I was sneaking and running my way back from a mini guild raid in Ten mtns. I got a Tell from a 30 monk wanting help killing this guy. I'm a 29 Rogue and we took him down with little problem (I did get smacked down to 39% hps, so I won't be soloing him very soon). So a duo of lower lvls can do this quest if they work together! Good luck, can't wait to get mine.
Necro FD Killing

I am level 41 first time I did this guy was at 39.

Nothing changes his run speed. And if i nuke him he comes for me and ignores pet. Oh my what to do.

Well I just send in pet then hit him with plague no aggro at all from that then I boil his blood for him. Again no aggro. Now comes the aggro with a shock of poison and then it is time for a fake death. I just sit there and watch him die with the dots and pets. Once in a blue moon he will kill my pet and start to move off before the dots kill him just pop up when he is a little bit a way and back he comes. Then if he is really low whack him till he retreats or if still a bit strong just fd again and let the dots finish him.

Can anyone tell me if the latest patch changed the spawn cause i killed the bugger the other day, he came from the east so i thought he was back from his route, 90 minutes later i'm waiting near the zone to GF, as always, and no pop, 5 minutes later, again he's coming from the east, so perhaps it got changed.
By the way i've done this quest like 20 times.

Rogue Mob

Some report having seen the Runner pop halfway between zone to GF and the Grimling Caves. Many have seen the Runner spawn in the tunnel to GF, while others camping his spawn point missed him leaving the tunnel altogether...

Could it be that, being a rogue, the conniving little bugger uses sneak and hide?

My 2 Copper on this...
# Mar 09 2003 at 11:52 PM Rating: Good
I have made DOZENS and DOZENS of Rallic packs. And the Runner is a VERY predictable 90min spawn. I think the odd mins are due to the spawn cycle starting from Time of Death? SO that would cause spawn cycle to shift some throughout the day. He does spawn back inside cave entrance on right side as you look in, as others have noted, and his path is between there and the Mines on the South East end of the zone. SO if he does sneak out of the cave you will find him out in the zone. I usually sit on the right side across from the big rock as you look into cave so I will draw aggro from him when he pops and don't have to pay too much attention to watching for him. But at times I have pooped up track when the spawn time seems to have passed and lo and behold he has left while I was killing a Dire Wolf or something and is running toward the mines. And I have watched him do this to other groups as well. So if you find him out there it is becuase he got outta the cave unnoticed.

Yep -- 90 minute spawn timer, and he popped inside the Grimling Forest zone tunnel exactly as described in earlier posts. Just did it last night.

Easy kill for me (51 Shaman), but lower levels beware. Based on my one encounter, he seems pretty tenacious. Not only is he an ugly little bugger, but he's none too bright. He was very green to me so he did not aggro me. Before he made it out of the tunnel, I sicced Fido on him and slowed him, and do you think he tried to run? Nope. He kept slugging it out with doggie. Then I cast a DoT on him, and even though his health was dropping like a rock he charged me and skewered himself on my waiting spear. Dopey little monkey-man. :)

Good luck with the quest!

The 90 spawn timer was correct for me. I zoned in from grimling, and in about 2mins he poped. This was my first time camping him, and it was a success. I charmed a dire sonic wolf right outside cave and it totally destroyed the runner.

I think with decent gear, a good weapon, and buffs, a 37 could solo him. I would say definitely give it a try, but for your first attempt, try to catch him at his spawn point in the entrance tunnel (from Grim Forest). I wouldn't try to take him too far from there for a couple of reasons;
1. He is FAST, and immune to changes in run speed.
2. He is a Rogue, so if your far from the zone when you decide he's too much to handle, he will backstab you all the way to zone line, unless you can outrun him, which is unlikely.

I'm almost certain he's a rogue, two times while waiting for him to pop, I had my back to his spawn point, both times he Backstabbed for a good amount. Hope this helps, and best of luck!

The first time I solo'ed this guy with my ranger I was level 34. A warrior might have a little more trouble though.

I wait by the cave entrance at the zone, he usually comes right by the front of the cave. I pull him into the cave to avoid adds. He can be snared btw, I've successfully snared him every time I've fought him (3 times).

Bah, My Cleric started Soloing the Runner at 35. No great gear, wis at 140. Not a real problem, as long as you stay INSIDE the cave. The Runner is about the lowest lvel mob in the zone. =)

I just checked out your magelo. You better work on 2hs unless you have a lot cash for some uber 1hs's. You won't be able to hold taunt in PoP. 2HB, 2HD, 2hand piercing are almost a must for warriors in PoP. IMO I'd rather spend 20k on a Windblade (A Ro server) then spend 60k total on two really good 1hs's.

It's possible for you to kill him if you are able to get haste, regen, and sow on you prior to engaging him in battle. I, myself, do not know how hard he will hit you, but with a few buffs from a shaman of DS from a druid you should do just fine.

If you sit in the tunnel to GF and wait there ontop of the big rock, stare straight at the curve in the wall infront of you. That's exactly where he spawns. I was a bit confused when I went in because I didn't know if he spawned in the mouth or the back, turns out it's somewhere in the middle. His spawn time is definately 90 minutes, don't let anyone tell you otherwise because you'll miss your spawn. I killed him at 3:09 PST and he respawned at 4:39 PST, killed him again and he respawned at 6:09 PST. He does drop the pouch every time and he IS immune to changes in run speed. If you're a casting class it's a good idea to have SoW on, or some other form of speed. He doesn't have that much health, he was blue to a 39 druid and was taken down in four smacks of Firestrike.

He spawned twice on me in two hours at the Grimling Forest zone, and was blue to my 35 SK both times.
