Just to give you a heads up, if you're KoS with Wolves of the North faction, Bronto Thudfoot and Lenka Stoutheart will aggro on you if they're up and you go in there.

Shares a spawn with: Talym Shoontar, Sir Edwin Motte, and Imxil T'brow.

The respawn time is about 9min 20sec which is about 3 hours ingame !
It is needed to kill the PHs during the night to make him spawn if he is not up.
It seems like Groflah and Talym only spawn during the night while
Sir Edwin Motte and Imxil spawn only during the day.

NPCs in this spawn cyle despawn between day and night (dusk/dawn).
As example if Sir Edwin Motte is up during the day he will despawn at dusk
and a bit later Groflah or Talym do spawn in the night at 7 pm.
So its not needed to kill Sir Edwin Motte and to suffer serious negative
factions hits.
How to spawn Groflah

So after much testing and debate I figured out how to spawn Groflah on current TLP server Lockjaw.

First, you want to be in the Seafarer's Roost around 4pm game time. When Talym Shoontar or any of the other mobs on that cycle are up besides Groflah kill them at 5pm to 6pm game time. Then at 8pm game time there is a chance Groflah spawns. If he fails to spawn go about your business and restart this. If he does spawn then do what you need to do with him before 9am game time because he despawns then.

Hope this helps.

I waited 3 game days for him to spawn in the Seafarer's Roost in East Freeport. He never did.
Finally I zoned out and back in and the place keeper changed (Talym Shoontar, Imxil Tbrow). I zoned again and he was there. Game time was 6 AM not at night like he said.
Also location is not -1100, -1100. It's more like the posts below (-204, -870).

Now I'm stuck waiting for the next spawn in the Seafarer's Inn, Tykar Renlin.
Zoned a couple times and haven't got him yet . . .

He can be found in West Freeport, at /loc 415, -1639, -92 on the second floor of Groflah's Forge, close to the East Freeport zone line...

This is the static version of the NPC, that you need to hail and turn your note into for the first step... After that, you'll need to go to East Freeport and wait for him to spawn at /loc -1100, -1100 in the Seafarers Roost

Not in East Freeport,,, this can't be correct. +400 takes you out of the bar and into the ocean. You may be thinking of the WF Quest NPC.

Groflah Steadirt spawns in East Freeport at /loc neg 204, neg 870. This is near the docks inside the Seafarer's Roost at the spot where Talym Shoontar, Sir Edwin Motte, and a dark elf female whose name I don't recall also spawn. As with his NFP version, he was green to my level 35 Enchanter, and conned amiable both before casting Illusion Dwarf and Benevolance, and after. The NFP version of Groflah is a merchant. The EFP version is not.

First, what doesn't work: (1) Waiting and (2) The Pally note. I waited through twelve or so game days for him to spawn. Didn't happen. To pass the time, I killed Gin Dizree for faction and worked on other skills. A pally came along and waited a bit with me. She had given Groflah the note in NFP (Soulfire quest), which is supposed to make him spawn in EFP. Didn't happen. We waited through two game days and a server patch. Tried it again. Didn't happen. Fortunately for the Pally, you can skip the Groflah step in Soulfire and to straight to giving champange to the drunk.

What worked: Killing Talym Shoontar. Got my pet on him, laid out a DOT that would kill him, but not too quickly, and gated to a bind spot in WFP just outside the zoneline. Tamlyn had a red bub left when gate took effect, and thus no faction hit when he died. Went back, and in about five real time minutes Groflah spawned. Talked to him a little and gave him the Tumpy's Tonics. For each tonic, you get four positive faction changes, no negative faction hits, small coin and a small bit of exp.

Plus factions are:

Coalition of Tradefolk
Knights of Truth
Merchants of Qeynos
Coalition of Tradefolk Underground

Groflah despawned at 9:00 a.m. game time, just before Bronto and Lenka spawned across the room in front of the bar. Later, Sir Ediwn Motte spawned at the place Groflah had been.

Hope this post saves people interesed in doing this faction quest some time. Bottom line, after a lot of other trying, what worked was killing the PlaceHolder with a DOT, and avoiding the faction hit by getting out of the zone before the PH died.

The troll Plnorrick Spinecracker responded to a little tune by the bard Trolon about uniting.

The DE woman replied go ahead unite fools. It will make it easier to conquer you....

He then told her his fist would unite with her face.

He killed her hahaha! First time I have ever seen that event take place.

Soon after that the FIRST TIME EVER I have seen Groflah spawn here.

After all this time wow.

I can verify that killing Talym Shoontar DOES spawn Groflah Steadirt a few minutes later same spot (not at the bar).

I would also like to say that the Tumpy Tonics bit is Rediculously poor experience wise. As a 46 Enchanter (I killed Talym Shoontar by charming him into a guard and then zoning) I handed him 180 Tonics and got 1 blue pixel of 100% experience!

I have to agree that waiting does not help. I waited for 7 game days when a necro came by and killed Sir Edwin Motte. About 2 minutes later Graflah spawned for me.
North Freeport Version

The North Freeport version of Groflah Steadirt is on the second floor of his family's store at loc minus 10, positive 518. He conned green to my level 35 enchanter. Interestingly, using Illusion Dwarf and Benevolance did not improve my faction with him. He was amiable to me both before and after using these spells.

I was unable to get the North Freeport version of Groflah Steadirt to talk about the tonic quest. When I attempted to give him a Tumpy's Tonic, he gave it back saying he had no use for it. So far as I can tell, the Tumpy's tonic quest can not be completed with the North Freeport version of this character.

This NPC is found on the top floor of Groflah's Forger next to the Bard Guild. At level 14, he was red to me, so they have probably increased his level recently.
Min and Max levels are off.

I am a rogue of 17 seasons and he cons green to me so he must be under 15 for his max level.
