You say, 'Hail, Gimlik Cogboggle'

Gimlik Cogboggle says 'Well met, noble soul! I'm Gimlik Cogboggle. You are correct, the Gimlik Cogboggle, renowned adventurer, scholar, and yes... creator of spells. Please don't goggle or touch. Your opportunity has arrived, my friend. I was sent here to complete a very important task and for that, I will need some slight assistance. If you will be kind enough to follow me, I'll show you to your doom... err... get this show on the road. Just let me know when you're ready.'

You say, 'I am ready.'

Gimlik Cogboggle says 'Well look at you! You see, you're off to a great start! Now, just follow me and yell out if something stabs you or maims you in anyway. Never fear, I've memorized gate and have complete confidence in your ability to fend off danger for at least five seconds. Follow me... follow me.'

He starts at the top of the wizard spire.

He stops at the following locations.

-16, -454
6, -323
288, -108
100, -296
595, -136 at this location there's a Thul Tae Ew Tracker who dropped the Tiny Metal Quill just as he sets off a second tracker spawns and attacks. it also drops a quill. Triggering him to pause a second time at this location.

Then back to the wizard spire where he asks for the quill and resets to the top of the spire upon hand in.

All other mobs spawned between 2-4 at a time at the dead ends plus any normal mobs that aggro along the way. If you let him die he instantly resets to the spire.

He will stop along the way and say stuff like this:

Gimlik Cogboggle says 'Now this looks like a mask! Give me a moment to draw this thing in my journal. It will only take a second. I'm a genius you know, though my job is very difficult.'

Gimlik Cogboggle says 'Alrighty, off we go!'

Protect him against various mobs during his meander.

You have slain a Thul Tae Ew Tracker!
--You have looted a A Tiny Metal Quill.--

Sometimes he will wander away before you have killed the mobs that he triggers at the end of the hallways. Have someone follow him as close as possible to make sure he doesn't die. Another tip, you can have a wanderer mob hit him Once to stall him then take aggro. He screams "ouch!" and starts punching that will mean he is stalled till that mob he is hitting is dead. Then kill off the triggered mobs if you didnt have time to before he moved. Kill the triggered mobs, then the wanderer, and he will keep moving (sometimes he takes a bit to get going again).

Just got one of the mana earrings and he is up on pyramid still.. quest is immediately repeatable.

done with 65 pal/rog/clr + mercs

the last lizard you fight is a Thul Tae Ew Tracker, he drops the Tiny Metal Quill. loot it and keep following the gnome, once he gets back to the pyramid, he will ask for it. the quest is repeatable, Gimlik respawns atop the pyramid a couple of minutes after.

Hello everybody, this is Midgevil from Bristlebane. I have done this event about 33 times and have a bit of information.

At first I did this event with 6 people all level 63 - 65, and it's pretty much a cinch. Lately I have been duoing it with a 65 beastlord, I am a 67 cleric at the moment, elemental / time equipped, the beastlord is bazaar equip. The gnome is at the wizard port in in the center of the maze, which is a safe place to port into. All lizards that he spawns are pure melee, they're brown, don't hit that hard, no procs. All of these mobs are slowable, and all lizards in this zone are 100% fire resistant. All spiders are 100% poison resistant.

First, I prepull the first 3 most common lizard spawn points before I make the gnome move. I keep atone and root so I can root the gnome and then atone him when the group is ready to move again. Atone is a cleric memblur, doesn't work all that well but gets the job done.

Second, I make the gnome head out into the maze. He spawns 1 - 6 lizards 6 times throughout the maze, ushually at dead ends. I believe he only spawns lizards in one open area that isn't a dead end, and only one time (the common second spawn point). His first place he spawns lizards is ALWAYS the same. It's the dead end by the itty bitty temple with the itty bitty lizards. EVERY spot can have 1 - 6 mobs NOT including the 5th or 6th spawns which can have 6 lizards + the named. The named spawned about 1 - 5 minutes after the 1 - 6 hunters do, before the gnome moves. The named randomly spawns in the 5th or 6th spawns, not before. The item the named drops is always the quill which is turned in to cogboggle at the very end for a reward. All 1 - 6 lizards spawn at the exact same time. I let beastlord tank it.. I throw him a heal and tank the others while he gets them all slowed. Dangerous with 5 - 6 but it works.

Cogboggle is immune to charm, and maybe snare as well, if I remember correctly. Root and memblur works fine for me though. He hits 100ish, not that much dps so it's not that bad if you're tanking until you memblur him. His pathing IS semi random. I tried memorizing his pathing, but he can go to his 6 spawn points back and forth over and over, or go in order between the spots. It seems pretty random. Only the first spawn point is always the same. Some brown lizards spawn black oozes upon death, hit for 200's but they're like level 20 with exactly 1000 life, so not that bad.

I have never recieved the gloves as a reward, I have recieved all of the other rewards. The contraption was the most rare. That's all I can think about right now, if you have any corrections, please post!
Gnome off the path
# Mar 13 2004 at 7:28 PM Rating: Decent
If the gnome is aggroed and is moved somewhat far away from his original position, it can happen that he doesn't do anything after memblurred. In this case if you aggro him again and move back to where he supposed to be, and memblur again, he will continue his journey.

Should also note that after about 2-3 minutes the gnome forgets whoever aggroed him, and starts moving. So need to reaggro him time to time if you need him in one spot for a longer time.

Was fun quest for one group of chanter, bard, warrior, rogue, cleric, shaman (all 65).

We did this for the first time as a guild, took over 8 hours. Practice makes perfect, I think it can be done in as little as 1 hour.

Each ambush spot can be anywhere from 1-4 mobs.
He does not need to walk of his own accord, you can agro him and run him from spot to spot and memblur him at the next ambush spot.

There seems to be some variability. We were ambushed one extra time near the pyramid. The tracker guy popped right there.

Oddly enough there was a bug and the tracker popped twice so we ended up with 2 quills and one cognobbin.

He gave us the earring.

Anyone know if you can trade in your quest reward for one of the other "prizes"?

I would do this quest if i knew for sure i could get the Cogboggle Contraption or the Gloves of Ritual
Lore
# Jan 15 2004 at 1:18 PM Rating: Default
Anyone know if you have 1 of the 6 items and you turn in the quill. Thers a chance that he could give you the same item you aready have, sence they are lore. does he give you a differant item or does it say you cant obtain a lore item and you are screwed out of loot? would be nice to know.
Did yesterday with 5.
# Oct 30 2003 at 11:11 AM Rating: Excellent
Fun trip, did it with 5 people yesterday: 65 SK/cleric/ench, 64 mage, 57 druid.
I (enchanter) kept gnome agged when we needed a delay. slow+arcane rune worked nicely to keep him in check. He could not even interrupt me most of the time - I did most CC and slowing with him beating on me. Regular memblur (lvl 12 spell) was usually enough to send him walking again. He is NOT mezzable.
Ambush 1 is near the tiny lizard temple south of pyramid.
Ambush 2 is the dead end off the clearing immediately to the west.
Ambush 3 is the dead end just above the door to CY.
Gnome then backtracks south.
Ambush 4 at the dead end with 3 spiders in it.
Then, he goes back north.
Ambush 5 is at dead end in the NW corner of maze.
Ambush 6 is a single mob, the Tracker, happens immediately when gnome starts moving after ambush 5.
Them, you gotta get gnome back to his pyramid, and hand him the quill that tracker drops. With a good DPS group, can be done in about 20-30 min.
How often can this be done ?

I never been to Cazic before, so I ported here. I hailed the gnome and he started going somewhere, so I followed. Then I got lost and he was attacked by a lizard. I came back and the lizard uses one spell and I'm unconsious. The gnome was yelling for help but I gated out in time. Ouch. I was level 30 at the time.

I did this quest yesterday with 9 other people. Was overkill as we were average about 63 and had a 65 and 61 ench. This can definitely be done single group. Key is a good ench, but any ench who has been through the trials should be able to lock down the mobs easy and they dont hit anywhere as hard.

Heres how we did it. First off - everyone shrinks, and i mean everyone. down to gnome size. This was because its important that no one blocks the gnomes path and the tunnels can get narrow. This i think is the key to ensuring that he doesnt warp or complete the event. just make sure everyone stays behing the gnome with the warrior or MA ahead to draw first aggro. I was the MA and found that I could walk backwards quite easily facing the gnome.

When we hit a dead end or had pops, we had a designated gnome aggroer who would keep the gnomes attention - also we slowed the gnome so he wouldnt do a lot of damage. When the fight was over, cleric would cast atone and we would move on. I was told that this worked much better than mez memblur.

anyway, it seemed to work pretty well. And really, as all the mobs can be mezzed, the hard part was making sure you didnt get in the gnomes way and not the fights themselves.LIzards were hitting for up to 200 or so but i rarely even needed a CH as they could all be slowed.

Anyway, just aggro the gnome when u need to stop and cast atone and you can walk this event at your own pace.

The advantage of having a few more peeps though is that it does get done a lot faster.

We finished this quest today. It's not a hard quest...it just takes proper execution.

The gnome, Gimlick Cogboggle, walks around the maze area of CT. He stand on the wizard spire to the far east of maze. Once you start quest, he will walk South, continue West, then North, then back East, walking the whole perimeter of the maze. If you have a map of CT you will see his 'general' route outlined.

Besides clearing nearly all of the lizards/spiders in the maze, the gnome will get to certain dead-ends and trigger anywhere from 1 to 6 lizards. Some can be brown lizards. Most are green though. Once the gnome is at the northern tip of maze, a Thul Tae Ew Tracker will spawn. It's level 60, and hits for 300. Kill this and it will drop a lore/magic/no rent quill. Escort the gnome back to the spire and when he stops walking give him the quill. You'll get some plat and any one of the listed items.

1 well balanced group is all you need. If your group can handle 4c/mudbowl, you can do this quest. Our tactic that we use is to stay slightly ahead of the gnome and keep the area cleared of any static spawns in maze. As soon as we get any sort of aggro whatsoever, whether a static spawn or a quest-triggered spawn, we aggro the gnome and tank mezz/root him the entire fight. After everything is clear, we mem-blur him and he continues walking. Yes, it's rather cheap way of doing it, but unless you have 2 groups with very heavy DPS the gnome will start to proceed before you have a chance to clear everything in the way. If gnome dies, the quest is finished.

So again, the key to winning this is not necessarily heavy DPS, but good crowd control and constantly keeping gnome aggroed then mem-blurring him. The reward is pretty decent for 1 group to plow through in 3 hours or so.

On saryrn we do the quest with about 6 people... its like trials, you need good dps. Get a monk/rogue, 2 warriors, 1 cleric, 1 chanter, 1 druid(to bring things into other rooms for root). The mobs in this quest can only cast on you if your in their LOS - line of sight.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 04 2003 at 2:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Is it possible to proceed ahead of gnome and Lower aggro of mobs with wake of tranquility, or the cleric pacify?

READ THE POSTS!!! Someone already said he stops in a few locations and the mobs spawn and attack him. For an idea of what he is talking about go do the one in Neth Lair. That one is same way you talk to guy he gives a letter and starts walking. The one in Neth lair stops 3 or 4 times at tunnel entrances and a swarm will come out you kill swarm he walks to next tunnel. After last fight he stops by the guards you hand letter back and get ring. The post above said this guy does same except there are like 6 stops and at one of them he drops some quill. Read the posts thru before asking questions that have been answered already.

Wut u talkin about Willis?

The mobs gimlik spawns are all melee mobs. The only casters are existing spawns in the maze, even if u don't do the quest, the casters are still there. Lastly, he roams the maze, so what single room are you pulling to?

Think u might be thinkin of a different ring quest, hehe.

He said pull to other rooms so the mobs could be rooted there(supposedly so you could save them for later), he did not say he was pulling to a single room. I however dont know anything about CT, or this maze, so Ill end my post now.

Wow, maybe you should have stuck around and given the GM a chance to right it instead of throwing a tantrum and logging off. A bugged quest may have ripped you off the first time, but you ripped yourself off after that.

He poofed on us as well. He didn't despawn, he warped to somewhere out in the maze. Pretty far away from where we were. Not sure why, but I had him on target at the time and after a while he just dropped.

Big waste of time.
Drops

Does he drop a random in the list or can you exchange what he gives you for something else somehow? Anyone know?
