Netherbian Swarmlord  


Uploaded July 24th, 2007

This is a triggered mob, found in the Tegi cave on the north side of Umbral Plains.

To trigger him, kill the Netherbian Swarmcaller, which spawns in the same Tegi caves. The Swarmcaller should be alone in the center of a chamber which is reached by taking the right-hand fork from the second chamber, at approximately loc 2250,500. Note that there is no immediate effect from killing the Swarmcaller, but after one to two minutes, groups of four Netherbians at a time will begin to spawn in the same chamber where the swarmcaller was killed (making this sort of a mini ring event). The groups spawn about every five minutes, and there are always four Netherbians per group. The groups are usually made up of four Netherbian Ravagers, but there can be a Netherbian Flesheater, Netherbian Hive Fiend, Netherbian Infestor, or Netherbian Seeker in any given group.

When the sixth group of Netherbians spawns, the Swarmlord will spawn with them. Note that it is not necessary to kill the first five groups in order for the Swarmlord to spawn; if the chamber is left vacant after killing the swarmcaller, after 30 minutes, it will contain the Swarmlord and some combination of 24 other Netherbians.

None of the groups are difficult for a moderately-equipped 85+ character, nor is the final kill.

I have been hunting in UP for past 2-3 months in Ow and AoCs. i have tied 20+ times on all the triggered raid mobs in UP(AoC) and they have never worked. Starting to think they are broken in the AoCs and I may just be missing the windows when the raid mob is up and the trigger mobs are up. I came to UP 6 hours after the sever rest and all the triggered mobs were up, did a round and none of them spawned their mobs. Dark masters for Doomshade, Swarmcaller for Swarmlord, and the Ice and Fire mobs in the back of the caves.

The only answer I have been given by gen chat is someone else must of killed it and the mobs are random in AoCs.
68 Ranger took him out

Just did with level 68 ranger, tenacity, kei, steadfast servant, and healing potions(used two; one heal over time and other some 2k heal potion), spell healed the heck out of myself as well ,,I went inside and tagged him with one arrow, used invis vs undead potion and ran out of the cave,,I did stop along the way towards the zoneline to keep him trailing,,,zoned out after being summoned by his groupies ,,,came back with invis vs undead and found the swarmlard sitting outside...dropped the posioned blade which my litta warrior got and the mace which was to go to litta pally but not enough time.....good luck folks....oh I used weapon sheild when he enraged around 15%......
Named spawns?

So is there a chance a named will spawn each wave? Once I had 2 named spawn the whole event- other times, just the swarmlord...

Loots + Difficulty

This guy is fairly easy to do with a group of
level 65s in medicore gear. (For level 65). Ive
killed him about ten times, zero deaths. He
is not however doable with 3 guys IMHO unless
they are very well outfitted.

Ive seen the mace and sword once and the spear
drop about eight times. A lot of times he will
drop 2 spears.

Best way to kill this guy is drag him to zone.

nice combo

Bracelet of Might and Bracelet of Fortitude is a vey nice melee combo, paladin, sk, warrior, the hp addition is nice and the str is nice as well, i use Hero Bracers and Crustacean (bleaugh!) hoping to get an upgrade in the near millenia

Were looking to outfit some shaman alts, so decided enscrolled spear would be good to get them. Kill swarmcaller, and then took everyone to zoneline. Druid would then pull each wave out of the cave, by tagging on and using innate camo to sprint out. Usually no aggro, occasionally some see invis. Running east out of the cave along wall, mobs would either chase her, or warp if they were too slow in cave. Since they corpse camp, as soon as druid egresses, they won't move. On final wave, pull swarmlord and his final mobs west out of cave, AE snare the adds (occasionally 1 or 2 immune), split em, pull lord to zoneline. Feast on him. Done with druid, shaman, monk before (though was really realy close)
Where are the drops?
# Nov 12 2003 at 11:49 AM Rating: Decent
I have seen this guy go down prolly a dozen times and never seen any loot of significance drop. Anyone able to shed some light on this for me?
Not hard

65 cleric, 65 druid, 62 shaman, 65 warrior, 59 monk did this easily. Probably could have dropped it to to just cleric warrior and druid. just fully debuff this guy with Cripple/Hand of Ro/Ro's illumination and he hits around 100-150 usually and that and the cleric damage shield he is owned
# Jul 15 2003 at 5:39 PM Rating: Default
3 people

65 pal, 65 rog, 65 cleric

we kill the trigger mob on the way to tawro... we kill tawro, then wait a few mins. he gates the cleric to the zoneline, I shroud of stealth to the zoneline, then the pally trains the swarmlord to zone in area, he will give up chase so you kinda gotta watch, I'll tag and he zones out.

I run in circles til he gets back.

Hits for mid 300s, hits very very fast and unslowable. pally has about 5k hp unbuffed and he had to start the next cheal about 5 seconds after the last one, cleric usually ends up at about 20m.

probably a ton easier of the cleric has good ft gear.. ours didn't back when we used to farm this guy, though he does now. you can kill him without doing the ring event :p
Took it by 3 ppl

heh doubt it, he is a trigged event mob, were waves of these netherbians spawn an attack ,4 at a time. We had a VERY good group for this raid, chanter was mezzinging like crazy, long sotry to explain, of course we did this, but i doubt u killed this guy, it was prolly the swarmcaller. This mob is a triggered event.

unfortunately you are the wrong one =). all you have to do is sit behind the room and wait for all the waves to poof and just take him and the last wave.

Had him pop on us during the cycle on the way to Radir. He dropped a 62 shaman in no time, was immune to 58 enchanter slow, and conned red to a 57, and hits for around 270.

heh this guy cant be slowed, anyone who says he can be is sorely mistaken; I have tanked this guy 4 times, he is spawned by killing The Netherbian Swarmcaller... The Swarmlord is actually the PH persay of Festersore, a much easier mob that drops Yellow Fang Earring (ac30 all/all droppable). Swarmlord hits very fast, capping out at about 350 on me with 1375 ac, I would say he triples or quads, and he is completely immune to any form of slow. Need a good DS for this guy; it helps a ton. I recommend at least 3 clerics for this one, cuz I was getting chealed at 4 bubs of health and was dropping to under 1k hp before the cheal went off (and I have 5500 hp buffed). Dropped Ensorcelled spear for us every time we have killed him, stats by memory, but something like this: 9/20 str/sta10 wis15 int/cha5 hp50 mana100 sv all10 rog/shm / all.

"he is spawned by killing The Netherbian Swarmcaller..."

Either some nights I made a lot of people happy, or really ticked, I musta killed the Swarmcaller several dozen times one night farming Porus mineral blocks... lol

60 Shaman in our party slowed him with no stress. Killed him with 2 groups of mostly 58 plus (a few 54-58, including myself) with 2 clerics healing the MT (60 Warlord). I won the roll on the mace...woohoo :-)

Slowed him today with no probs as a 60 chanter on the way to Tawro.... Perhaps he was either changed or you were unlucky.

This guy is immune to change in attack speed, so no chance at slowing him. He also hits pretty fast. Don't remember max hit, but I think it was in the 250ish area. Maybe as much as 300, but I really don't think anyore than that.

Best tactic would be to have 2 clerics do a CH rotation on a high level warrior, who can go defensive is a problem occurs. Also make sure you bring someone to DS the MA. This will go a long way in helping to take him down. He has a lot of hp, but hits pretty fast so a nice DS will be abig plus.

Mace of Decay

Also drops Mace of Decay, same stats as poisoned blade but has 20 disease instead of 20 poison, is 1hb. It is also poison damage as well oddly enough, not disease.
