There are many posts here about waves of mobs that spawn, and clearing the cave, etc. Just thought I'd let you guys know I four box in UP. I have a wiz, dru, bst and cleric, all level 65. I park them all at the IZ. Dru binds outside Tawro's cave on the north wall a ways west of the cave. Wiz casts TL on druid, then druid keeps TL box and gates. He runs in with invis/sneak and aggro's the swarmcaller, trains it to the first little room of cave or so then clicks on the TL box. If you bound in just the right spot, swarm (or other named) will warp to you solo, then you run him to the IZ and kill him. 30 mins later you do the same with the swarmlord. No "waves" of mobs to kill at all.
In fact, I tend to first kill the swarmcaller, then tawro, then spirit of tawro, then swarmlord pops and I kill him.
Be careful though, its a real pain to CR out of the cave if you die too far in there.
scary stuff

This guy spawns in a room by himself in the neth caves, in the room before rock turns to ice. He does see invis and doesn't drop anything from my experience. However he can spawn the swarmlord. The swarmlord pops in the middle of the room where the swarmcaller sits. He also appears with a full room spawn of 4 mobs that will camp corpses and not return to the room until the 30minutes is up that yo have to kill the swarmlord before it despawns. So far all the neths in his room have been mezzable. Swormlord drops 1 item and/or a bracer and can spawn another named that drops a 30ac ear ring. This is one group doable with a good chanter.

Also, to my knowledge you don't have to have the swarmcaller up to start the cycle to spawn the swarmlord. There is no waves either. Just a room pop that may or may not have the swarmlord in it. (can be on the first pop or the 15th) same goes for festorspore. You got 30 minutes to kill him in the room or he despawns. Despawn may only happen after argo but i'm pretty sure its 30 minutes from the time the room pops with him in it.

No quest, just like camping a rare spawn.

that was 90 mins.....

Both cycles can be done with a single group, as long as you have good crowd control and high dps.
22-30 people here would be more trouble then it's worth(IMO).
My group got an edge of honor, a 30ac earring, a bracelet of quickness, and a rod of virtue or something in about mins here.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 21 2002 at 10:45 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I went to UP for the first time with a 2 grp raid. We took out both spirits in both caves with no chanter and no bard. We had 3 lvl 60's and everyone else was about 50-55, except for a 46 warrior :) They all said we were crazy for trying without a chanter and bard, but we walked through the caves and killed everything in sight. Shaman slowed and melees went to work. I'd even dare to say it is an easy fight with 2 grps. So to all you pussies that can't do these mobs without 40 people and a chanter, give me a /tell and we'll come do it :) and take your loot .

We killed this Swarmcaller guy a few times now with ease. He is on the way to Tawro btw.
One of our guildmembers said that there will spawn waves of netherbians when he is dead, so we tried it after killing the Spirit of Tawro.
We had a force of around 24 people (only one 59 chanter).
We fought the waves right in the cave where the Swarmcaller (and the waves) spawn.
After 3 or 4 waves of netherbians we got the Swarmlord. He was not slowable/mezzable, but killable indeed ;)

Dropped a nice sword for us
Poisoned Blade:
8 dmg, 21 dly, 5 poison dmg
+4 to all stats, 20 poison resist.

Killing the Swarmlord caused another named spawn in the fire cave...can't remember name tho...dropped some sort of ring for us. I guess there may be waves of mobs in fire cave too after killing this guy, don't know...all were too tired to find out...hehe.

hope this helps...

Killed him he dropped nothing / had less than 30 people/ wasnt hard at all......
Took this guy last night
# Apr 06 2002 at 9:30 AM Rating: Default
We took this guy last night on the Rathe with about 22 lvl 52-60, but most were over 55. We killed the swarmcaller and managed to loot him, but there was only one enchanter to start with and by the time he was gone, only 4 other people alive, so we got our bodies summoned.

#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 31 2002 at 5:55 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) the Netherbian Swarmcaller in the Netherbian Lair doesn't summon just a lvl 26 netherbian drops a Unguis (dagger) but more often a Netherbian BP 20ac and 3str +2 vs cold this one is obviously a different upgrade mob. Was wondering what this one drops if anyone has survived it

The Netherbian Swarmcaller is indeed in the Umbral Plains and is about lvl 57 if memory serves correct. We went in with about 40 lvl 55+ but it still proved to be a challenge. We of course did kill all of the mobs but our Chanters did not fare to well. Some people were complaining that mez was being broken but I never saw anyone hit out of turn. I believe that Mez does not last long on those mobs.

Root held on most of them but not for very long. Average hold time was about 10 seconds although I did have it wear off after 1-2 seconds. They do summon (as would be expected). I did not time the reset on this trap but I believe it was about 5-8 minutes.

Loot was nothing memorable and if it were not in the way of getting to Tawro Iceshaker I would not even bother.

Tawro Iceshaker spawns at the end of the north tunnel system. He is lvl 60 and is not snare/rootable and I think was not slowable. He could be crippled though. He can be pulled to the group.

When killed he spawns Spirit of Tawro who is also lvl 60. I do not have the loot list handy but might post it later.

IMHO if you can get to Tawro then you most likely have the force to dispatch him easily.

This summons about 6 waves of netherbians.. You need about 20 to 25 level 55-60 with minimum 2 chanters to do this.. it takes time and does not seem to be worth the trouble imo.. Sure it is fun to fight 1 wave knowing that if your not prepared for next wave within wery short time you will be dead, but loot was kinda crappy.
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 19 2002 at 9:45 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Well considering there are Derv's in more than one zone...........

This guy is in a cave in the northern end of Umbral. He is a huge blue looking alien, lvl info seems correct.
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 10 2002 at 2:03 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i looted this dagger in netherbian lair on a lvl30 mob
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 02 2002 at 6:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The mob in Netherbian Lair is called the "Netherbian SwarmLORD" not Swarmcaller....
