I have a few questions and I would appreciate it if someone could answer them.

What is the number loc of the tree by which this guy or his PHs spawn?

At what level could a wiz solo him? And at whatever level, would the wiz just root, snare, nuke and repeat until dead?

If the wiz has to clear the placeholders, do they social aggro or can the wiz kill them one by one?

Thanks in advance

Would be sweet to find out that sword is actually real, and actually drops from this guy, But so far noone here has ever seen it drop. I have to assume that the ME version of that sword is either fake, or hasn't dropped in a while.
once a week.

well a week had gone by since i try for this mob i thought it has high time for another go, again after about 30 minutes he poped and droped the range item. went to the shammie this time. it looks like hes on a week spawner, i spend alot of time in ME and GE never noticed anyone camping for him the hole week. of course since no one had been knocking down the PH which i have come to find from prv post and personal exp is (if your camping corner near the wall to the fort area) is the mob on the left 2nd one back. he was spawn in the spot both times i have seen him. i will be droping that one mob while i travel in this zone over the next week see if i can find out for sure his spawn time =)
luck ran short.

ok i take my crew into this camp kinda over kill.
64 chanter, 58 rouge, 52 clr, 54 druid, 57 shammie, all bots on xev. now i get to the tree and dig in for a long long camp and chief spawns after 30 minutes GREAT he droped the uber item gave to druid first (he need more then others) this was sat. night, stayed there for another 6 hours didn't pop again. next day i camped him for another 6 hour set. didn't pop. next day another 6 hours. still no pop. his guys must be a uber rare spawn, whats the chances he will drop the range item again is it his common? i know i'm kinda getting ahead of myself i can't seem to pop him again. but i'll keep trying.

I just dinged 61 last night while camping the 5 spawn goranga tree in ME. At the end of my time the chieftan spawned single again in the South position. I pull him with Malosini, sent a fully buffed True Spirit pet after him, then Turgur's Insects, then Cripple. I then Bane of Nifed him and JBB'ed while rooting as necessary. Was a tough fight, pet needed 2 75% CH's I needed one, he has about 20k hps and enrages at 10% and stops at 6%. Make sure you pull him far enough back towards the wall or up on the cliff and let him run when he enrages so he doesnt tear the pet a new a$$hole. I only had 170 WIS with about +400 mana from items and didn't have a KEI at the time. Dropped only a staff and warbeads.
A 60 shaman with all his spells could solo him or a 61 shaman with the new pet and replenish ( 25hp/tick regen ) can solo him. Fight lasted approx 6-7 minutes. I reslowed after about 3.5 minutes as he can double for 171 and bash for about 70. He doesn't cast or summon and runs and Enrages at 10% life. Hope this helps some.

Lucid Shard

Based on 8 or 9 kills, I believe it is fair to say this named Goranga does NOT drop a Lucid Shard for the Vex Thal key quest. =(

I camped this guy last night and after 7 hours he popped. did the camp with my 60sk and 51 shammie and botted my wifes 56 rogue. He was the easiest of the grape ape guys I have done. Slow stuck 1st try and he dropped fast. I was happy he dropped Divene the 1st try for my shammie cause all and all the camp gets kinda old.

I had managed to break the tree solo and even kill a tribesman solo (yay me) when a 60+ pally came by. We continued for about an hour killing when the cheiftan pops. He spawned at one of the south positions on the tree. We pulled him solo and killed him easy enough , but he did take about 4 minutes as my slow wore off right at the end. Dropped only the warbeads ( bah!). Ive been at many treegroups before and thos was only the 2nd time I saw the cheiftan. Spiritseers are probably harder as they nuke , DoT and I hear can CH too.

Cheif is level 58, cannot be single pulled if others near him are pulled first ( ie full repop has occured ), has about 20k hps, doesnt summon or cast, can be slowed and cold DD ( JBB ) easy once debuffed.

I believe a 58+ shaman could solo him, not saying it would be easy, but its possible.

Tree Loc

From DSP ZL, head left ( north ) and run until you hit the zone wall. Then head right ( east ) until you come to the wall. DO NOT go all the way to that wall or you may aggro Xi Vius and other stuff from the other side. There will be 5 gorangas ( full spawn ) at the "tree". That is the tree we refer to in this post. The tree is camped maybe 50% of the time on Luclin server, and mostly by higher than level 55.

The two mobs that are of interest are the spiritseers which drops shards for the Vex Thal key and the chieftan who rarely drops a sweet AC 15 +15 INT/WIS +35 mana range slot item that is a caster piece.

You will probably not get a tree group at 53 unless they are w/o a cleric, chanter or shaman.
Once you hit 55 or 56 you can solo single gorangas near the DSP ZL or in the NW corner of the zone up on the hill ( a favorite of mine ).

Was pullin the ph for chief the other nite while clearin the stone of seer phs.. was just a 61 sk (very sucky sucky) + lvl 60 chanty. Anywho 2 hrs of campin on this particular occassion and right before i call it quits chief spawns, easy to slow and with just sk + pet + chanty pet beating on him we took the poor ******* down, Didnt even use leech touch, just tappa tappa tappa, and a brief bit of aggro kitting along the wall and poof, was about to /ooc stupid @#$!ing war beads when chanty said devine dropped. Since neither of us needed it we invited a lvl 23 troll shammy from netherbian neither of us knew to loot it.. (Trolls have been very depressed since getting their asses kicked out of their hopes.. hope this one feels better now).. Also killed the chief around 7x first divine thingy ive seen
Does this guy spawn
# Feb 12 2003 at 10:27 PM Rating: Decent
I have been killing here for 4 days now. I mean nonstop killing. Spent over 20 hours and nothing.

I keep just about every goranga around there cleared with charmed pet.

I would say...over 200 kills and not spawn.
What time is this guy dieing
# Dec 09 2002 at 6:17 AM Rating: Decent
Killed this guy about 8 times. Every kill was around 10 to 12 est in the morning or 10 to 12 est at night. May b my luck, but for those that kill him in the future can you tell approz the time..

1. looking from the hillside by the fortress wall at the tree, he only spawns on the back left side of the tree.
2. At lvl 59 you can anyone can pull the tree single (only the tribeman -spawning on the right- or the spiritseer -spawning closes to the camp spot- will argo due to their higher lvl)
3. Never has dropped the sword for my group or anyone I know that camps him. Rumor has it the sword no longer drops.
4. He fights like a Moktor in UP, but has less hitpoints and doesn't summon.

I killed him at about 11pm est time.
No Cast
# Nov 25 2002 at 7:45 AM Rating: Decent
This guy didnt cast anything.. Had a lot of HP..

Took all my mana 247INT + Harvest to drop him..

Dropped lame beads

Anyone know if he drops the MAIDENSEYE Lucid Shard?

RE: No Cast
# Apr 10 2003 at 6:44 PM Rating: Decent
The only creatures that I or any of my friends have ever seen a lucid shard drop from in ME are the Goranga Scouts... nothing else. I hope this may be of some help to you or anyone else that reads this.
By the way, this shard in my opinion is the hardest one to get (not because the creatures are hard) because it seems much more rare than others are. Be prepared for a long camp getting this one =/
More Drops

Had a nice group camping the "tree" last night, 61 Beast, 57 Necro, 55 Pally, 54 Cleric, 52 Chanter, and 54 Ranger (me), and got this guy to pop once in the 2 hours we were there. Wasnt too hard of fight, even with the add (thanks to the chanter). He is slowable, and I tanked him the whole fight, needed 3 or 4 CH's before he dropped.

He dropped the Devine Inspiration, so yes it does still drop, Gratz to Hecubus on the nice roll for that one.

Good luck, is quite a fun fight.
can be solo by a lvl 53 druid

Divine Inspiration
# Jul 29 2002 at 2:31 PM Rating: Decent
I got the Divine Inspiration on my lunch break, first chieftain pull, on my fist tree camp. From your posts I guess I got lucky. /shrug

Does he summon?
# Jul 01 2002 at 9:29 AM Rating: Decent
Does he summon?

how bad MR is he?
# Jul 01 2002 at 4:03 AM Rating: Excellent
1. Only spawns at goranga "tree" on any one of the 6 spawn points

2. Always drops the useless beads

3. If you keep all 6 spawns clear he pops at least twice a RL day

4. 11 kills 2x divine inspiration, never seen that sword

5. Is 58 always and does NOT CH or cast, only the spiritseers do that

6. Easy killed with 60 monk and 60 shaman duo (torpor helps)

I just soloed the chieftain today and he didnt drop the useless beads...whatever they are. He did have the Divine inspiration though. And he doesnt summon, which someone asked. He was just really difficult to get him single. I normally have no problems pulling singles from the tree but the chieftain must be different.

This guy indeed is lvl 58 and doesn't cast, he's not that MR but still resists a good deal. If you get his resistances debuffered it shouldn't be a problem at all. A skilled necro or shaman can easily solo him but be carefull because if you run out of mana you'll be in trouble as he has a ton of HP's. I calculated he has around 20khp or so, he hits for about 171 and bashes for about 68. About his spawn, he's totally random and has PH's that can be either hunters, gatherers, lookouts, spiritseers, and/or shamans. He takes a while to spawn and when he does he rarely drops the Divine Inspiration, he's popped 5 times for me and has only dropped Goranga War Beads (7ac 4wis and some other minor stats) nothing impressive. Gluck with him cause if you're looking for the Divine Insp you'll be camping him a LONG time.
