This zone is the revamped version that was released on July 10, 2003 during Legacy of Ykesha.

The Temple of Droga is found in the northwest corner of the Frontier Mountains. It is home to a large and diverse tribe of goblins, the Cleaving Tooth Clan. To hunt in this dungeon you must drop off a ledge, and commit to a rather long trek to get back out.

Just an FYI for anyone on Fippy or Vulak. This is zone is set up as it was originally. Lower level than shown here. We took a group of high 40s in and everything was grey and green with the very rare light blue mob. Just a heads up before you make the run there.

I was running through droga and found Bone Caster Fizzik in one of the caverns near the Pally npc in the hidden tunnel. Can't remember which cavern, but there was another lower level named right across from him too. Killed them both but didn't make a note of the other named.

I got Bone Knight Runri to spawn in the room west of the firepit room (and south of the King area). He even obliged to drop the old Sash of Wonder for us. We were just clearing mobs so I can't verify if he spawned randomly or from a set PH... but he was positioned guarding the tunnel south toward the old Cialin area.

Droga Named Gone
# Jun 27 2006 at 8:54 AM Rating: Decent
I have not been able to get a named to spawn. I tried all around the Kings room and above for 6 hours no spawn. Both King and Gedak's ph's are no longer there. Camped Gedak's area to for a couple hours and gave up. Maybe a glitch they will fix from last patch but as of today I have yet to see or able to make a named spawn. Have only been there a few times since hotzone's changed. Would like to hear if others having same problem. This is on the morell server.

People have sightings of the King and Gedak but no one seems to know the locations still.

Free the Prisoners
# Aug 08 2004 at 11:07 PM Rating: Decent
Got the 3 quest pieces that the Prisoner wanted. No one camps anywhere in here other than the King any more for the most part.
65 Bard and 65 Druid were fine killing the a goblin master alchemist, the a goblin food supplier and the a goblin prison warden.

The warden was tricky to get single... but between lulling the adds and fading, we were able to keep the warden mezzed there while the adds walked away. The warden dropped 2 keys... the Master Shackle Key and the jail door key. You need the key unless you have a Rogue with you. The jail doors said bard lockpick skill was not high enough. The jail door key is no rent so you will have to either do event then, kill the warden again next time you come with group or bring a rogue.

We did not start the event because we would have wiped fast. I plan on releasing the prisoners on the 7th hammer again. I have the 3 quest items waiting for it and the 4 quest pieces for the prisoner when freed.

I was actually able to wiggle through the bars tonight. Female high elf toon. Just keep walking into the bars and moving left and right and you can wriggle through them. Not sure how that would actually affect being able to free the prisoner; however, but at least if you fall down /blush you can get out again. Too sleepy to see if this was mentioned previously. If it was, consider this a kind of "bump" of the information. =p

Hey all. I have a 47cleric and a 40 warrior and i was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on whether or not it would be wise to bring a group here to get xp and drops? About the drops, could a 40-50ish group handle the mobs/areas with the better drops? Just curious. any advice would be helpful. feel free to email me with game tips. alanrsmith1982@msn.com
RE: Fairly new to Eq
# May 03 2004 at 2:26 PM Rating: Decent
Mid 40's groups will have a VERY hard time in Droga. I would go to Nurga instead.

Your 47 cleric could probably start a group of mid 50's, which would have a better chance here.

Agreed, Nurga would be more your speed. You're going to run into lots of resists and run yourself oom fairly quickly in Droga at those levels. It was amazing xp at lvl 57 and the deeper we explored, the harder the mobs got. When we got to the King's area, I could not mez a good portion of the mobs b/c they were too high in level.

Nurga would set you up nicely for what to expect in Droga, except that Most of the mobs in Droga are spaced better for single pulls. Nurga will have many 2-4 mob pulls possible. The mobs are mostly green to me at lvl 67, particularly at the beginning after jumping off the waterfall (may want to lev for that part and be ready to fight in water for the first mob). There are 3 more in the cave beyond the pool at the bottom of the waterfall so you don't want to pull that first mob in there unless you think you can handle four mobs.

The most challenging thing, imo, about Droga is that the majority of the mobs are casters. Every kind of caster. Have all your resists up for an easier time. The Marvelous thing about it is that you can invis through all of it. I have run into a see-invis mob past the king's room, but I'm thinking that was the pet and someone with a twisted sense of humor. =p Other than that, not even the named see through invis. You can march your merry way around in the dungeon and pick a cozy spot to set up camp. It's a huge dungeon so lots of room and lots of named so if one camp is taken, there are several others you can go to.

In summary, unless they're Ultra tweaked, I wouldn't take a group of lvl 40-something in there. Mobs hit me for about 150-200 whereas Nurga is 19 to 133, 133 being Overseer Prucklib, a level 50 mob. Plenty of mobs in Nurga to be white, yellow and red to a lvl 40'ish group. =)

Oh, and in Either zone, save the salts and skins for This quest: everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=1887 Salts can also be used for a temper for smithing or for poisonmaking.

well, also you would need a snarer, since all mobs run. also there is the fact that you would have like no fear resists so the farther you go in, there are more mobs that cast fear that will bring a huge train and kill you, especially since it is hard for low levels to mez. hope it helps
Droga mobs see invis.
# Dec 07 2003 at 10:58 AM Rating: Decent
Please tell me I am wrong. It appears as though Droga mobs (some) now see through invis. Can anyone else confirm this and if so, when did this happen. I frequent Droga and stepped away for 2 weeks. Came back, got a group together and it was a terrible mess. Could even do corpse Runs (had to get a necro).

I was there twice yesterday, March 07 2004, and at no time did any mob I that we encountered see through Superior Camoflage. We did not go into the temple area or near the king so it is possible there are see invis mobs there. I did 3 old fashioned corpse runs there yesterday as well, the 3rd was due to Murphy's Law: camo MUST drop just as you're almost to the zone line!! Grrrr.
Also the level range listed above needs to be changed. At level 52 everything in the zone con'd bloody red with a few yellow cons thrown in, very few I might add. Appears to be more a level 55 - 60 zone now.

Unfortunately, he is right. Although the see invis mobs seem to be quite rare, I indeed had one in the King room the other night. Was and earth seer and he most definetly could see invis. He gave us quite a time on a cr. When I asked the zone if anyone else had any experience with this, one shaman said that he had as well. Well, at least they -seem- to be very rare.

It appears that any former pet will see invis until killed or repoped. Most likely an Enchanter had charmed the mob at some point. This is a bug and should be /bugged in game.
RE: Droga mobs see invis.
# Mar 23 2004 at 10:17 AM Rating: Decent
From what I have been able to figure out, a mob that has been charmed by an enchanter gains the see invis ability in one of two ways -- either it has a damage shield cast on it while it is charmed or it is mem blurred to remove aggro after charm. Although I have not thoroughly tested this, I know the DS seems to do it every time.

Definitely. My lvl 65 chanter and my lvl 65 monk friend annihilated. He was Ele / Time geared, I was very modestly geared (Skyshrine anyone?). However, your being a shammy balances out the gear issue. We had no heals for my monkey friend. I Was charming a hasted spider, but your dots and slow will even that out some as well. Really, the fact that you can heal the SK makes up for the extra DPS and gear that we had.

I also solo in there, but the problem I run into is that the mobs run. Just make sure your SK snares and you're golden. =)

You should do okay. I knew a level 65 shaman/level 62 ranger combo who did very well in Droga, but the shaman has the awesome Quiescence spell, which cuts down severely on the mana burden of healing without the ickiness of Torpor.

The two of you could easily handle the trash near the entrance, and probably could handle the tougher stuff deeper in, but the kills may be a bit slow, and/or the time between them may be a bit long.

I'd give it a shot though. It's a fairly low-risk area, everything here can be taken in single or double pulls for the most part, and the mobs don't hit very hard. Just try fighting your way in, and see how far you can go with a decent kill rate. Good luck.

Prisoner liberation event
# Aug 17 2003 at 10:18 AM Rating: Excellent
85 posts
Here's what I know about this event. From what I can gather it is still at least slightly buggy, so your mileage may vary. The group I had screwed it up, so maybe someone can learn from our mistakes. We were trying to free the sarnak prisoner (Asmodin Jru`dac).

When you trigger the event by giving the prisoner the items he asks for (drogan restorative off the goblin alchemist, goblin rations off the goblin food supplier, main shackle key off the goblin prison warden).

There are several spawn points about the jail area. There are two types of non-named NPCs you'll be fighting: goblin blood soldiers and goblin spirit masters. As far as I can tell, they are similar in ability--both are warrior-type mobs that max it for 268, mitigate slows and have a ton of HP. They con blue at 62, I suspect they are level 61. I don't believe they can be mezzed. They don't flurry, rampage, enrage or anything like that.

The blood soldiers can spawn in a few different places. One on each side of the door of the prisoner's cell (the west-most cell), and there's one soldier spawn right in front of the door of the eastern-most cell (the one with the "Always Works" pottery wheel).

The spirit masters spawn in the southern-most cell. One thing to beware: THESE WILL DOUBLE-SPAWN ON TOP OF EACH OTHER. If you have a tracker, you may want to check and see if there are one or two of these guys up before making your pull, or look closely at the text hovering over their heads to see if there are two, or else just presume you'll be fighting two of them at a time.

We pulled to the room with the pottery wheel. Our cleric was pacifying, though I'm not sure it was necessary. Pacify seemed to work fine on the blood soldiers, but the spirit masters resisted a few times, so I wouldn't bother trying to lull them.

You'll have to fight off a few waves of these mobs. Eventually, Assistant Jailor Dravian will spawn in the center of the jail area. I didn't think to con him. He had a lot of HP (around 170k+) and max hit for 434. He also mitigates slow, I believe. He didn't rampage, enrage or flurry the time we fought him.

A few more kills later, and Jailor Frixok will spawn in about the same place as the assistant. He's yellow at 65 (apparently level 67). Unfortunately we were going to try to get him alone, so our cleric tried to Pacify the spirit masters in the southern cell, but was resisted, and the two spirit masters and Frixok attacked us, so we wiped. Before he killed me, I saw enough to learn that he rampages and max hits for 565.

We didn't recover from our wipe fast enough to try him again (you have a limited amount of time to complete the event... how much time, I'm not sure). One of the people in our group aggro'd him again, thinking that might reset the timer, but it didn't. However, we did learn from that that he could be pulled without the spirit masters in the south cell aggroing.

As others have mentioned, after you free these prisoners, they appear somewhere else in Norrath, where they give a quest (usually they want one common item off of a named mob, and 3 rare items off common mobs in the zone for some nice reward). I presume that when this guy is liberated, he shows up outside Chardok, but I don't know for certain.

Another thing to note, one of my friends who did successfully do this event said that the time he freed the prisoner, he actually only had to fight a few goblins (and no named NPCs) and the prisoner escaped. This might have been a bug, or maybe certain prisoners are supposed to be harder to free than others. I'm not sure.

Anyway, I hope this helps.
A little info
# Aug 08 2003 at 3:11 PM Rating: Excellent
Just a short recap on info stated throughout the Droga sections....(considering posting an in depth guide later)...for those who hate homework =) /insert your usual spoiler warning here!!

Entrance to Droga after zone in is a illusion floor trap just to the right past a single mob spawn in entrance chamber (zone in hall is safe for buffing, invis ect..) Drop down is one way and there are two mob spawns in drop down chamber (55 - 57 lvl wise, never seen higher so far). Long hallway down leads to the caves and chambers below. The layout is easy to get used to but initially confusing and its very easy to get turned around in the confusion of battle because everything looks the same (use your compass to mark halls or rooms your headed toward at the start of a fight). To get out, use the left hand rule, ie..always go left from the drop down and after a few dead ends you will run past the dining hall, through an open gate wall, past the miners chambers and up the mine shaft (cart rails in center of path). This will take you up, out, and drop you down into the single mob start chamber. Take the right hand hall ahead of you for a quick train exit ;).

Mob difficulty increases drastically from the start. Droga works backwards in the sense that lower level mobs are at the back of the zone near the two tunnels to Nurga (approx N200 and lower first coordinate, any number second coordinate, all locations will be referenced to the EQAtlas maps). The Inner sanctum (right hand rule, always go right and when you see the gate wall your here) is largely populate by 58+ mobs.

All mobs drop cash with the exception of spiders, upwards of 24 plat (my personal solo loot high). Common drops include mineral salt (used in some tradeskills) and a Chardok quest shield (cant think of the name off-hand). Rare drops include gems of all kinds (emerald and higher in value, higher lvl mobs seem to drop higher end gems up to Blue Diamonds. I have yet to see lower than emerald though it wouldnt suprise me that in the backside near Nurga gem drops of lower quality might be found, my experience there is limited to a few nights camping). I have never seen a magic item drop off a common mob to date, nor a FS type weapon or normal piece of equipment. Spiders btw, drop nothing not even silk, save the savage which drops a ring.

There are 22 named loot mobs I know of that are confirmed(again grain of salt) either through this web site, personal experience, or accurate second hand info (ie...someone in guild "hey just got this **** off of ****"). Of those 22 I have confirmed 14 spawn locations first hand (these exist for sure and most of these have locations already noted in the bestiary section).

All mobs have decent resists across the board with no specific weakness noted so far, Tash and Malo are recommended (though Im not a number cruncher anyway so take this with a grain of salt). Some mobs can backstab, melee can range from 150 to 250's, casters have good sized mana pools and use em so be prepared for everything (AE spells, nukes, dots, slows, snares, roots, dispells, tash/malo, the works) be especially mindful of high lvl casters like master types, a few quick seconds alone with your caster and your wondering why Johnny your enchanter is in PoK right now). All mobs can be slowed/snared but sticking these without resist debuffs can be a pain on 58+ mobs and get your speed control types into hot water fast. Low level mobs can be stunned with a range of stun spells but higher (thinking 57+, will confirm) lvls are resistant to the stun effect portion of stuns a few levels below their own. The agro portion of low level stuns seems to be very effective though so I dont recommend Paladin types switch quick cast/low mana type stuns out unless absolutely neccessary. Mezzing can be tricky as 58+ mobs are resistant to low/mid level mez. 60+ chanters are recommended for the Inner Sanctum.

Agro range for mobs is very low as is the BAF range. I have yet to see warping from above or through walls, Droga seems pretty solid bug wise. Wanderers arent common but that can actually be a problem because you get lulled into a false sense of safety in places and you dont see trouble till its pimp slapping you up from your meditation.

CR is easy provided you have a rogue or can invis but can take time due to the long run around to the exit. I recommend you pull to any safe non spawn location and rez there (there are a number of halls without spawn and limited wanderers).

There are a few quests still being ironed out in the zone and it looks like the jail quest may be progressive in some way (whether its triggered or timed I dont know but I have seen the jail both full of prisoners and empty). There are a number of LORE ITEM drops from named mobs that have yet to be linked to quests.

My suggestions for groups, low 50's invis to backside near Nurga for decent drops, cash, exp, and high 50's are pretty much free to take most camps with a well rounded group. A 60+ mezer is a must in camps within the Inner Sanctum and I would recommend the same for a number of camps around the dining hall. 60+ full groups will find a decent challenge but can take any camp with ease. All smaller groups (level, numbers, or otherwise), well, /salute...good luck and happy CR! =p

Well, thats it for now, more to come later...=)

RE: A little info
# Aug 12 2003 at 2:08 PM Rating: Decent
A note on the jail quests...(all info is pretty much unproven and subject to error)

There is info coming out that suggests that certain jailbird mobs provide certain quests. A few have been seen so far but the number of lore item drops from named mobs suggest a large number still to be uncovered. It seems that each quest involves three very rare drop items (from different mobs within the zone like the sash off the lords/seers or totem off the seers). The quests available depend how far along your server is in the Jail Ring event. The type of quest depends on which jailmob you free. How this is done is still up in the air, whether the rations off the food suplier unlock the event, and the alchemist potion and warden shackles are used to free the prisoner is true or not as posted in other sections here, /shrug who knows. But its a start. Anyone with more accurate info please post =)

RE: A little info
# Aug 12 2003 at 7:20 AM Rating: Good
Just an addendum to the excellent post above :

Towards the end Targash says that a 60+ mezzer is a must in the Inner Sanctum - in fact a mezzer isnt needed. Droga mobs have VERY low aggro range. We just cleared the King / Earth Seer Gamolk complex (both names popped too!) with the following group :-

58 warrior
57 warrior
59 cleric
57 druid
57 shaman
65 mage.

I (58 warrior) pulled everything - and with 2 exceptions every mob single pulled. The two exceptions (which looked too close to single pull - so we split both spawns using Wake of Tranquility) were the two guarding the secret door and the two guarding the entrance to the Kings Chamber.

The 5 in the Kings chamber came singly when pulled in the order - front right, front left, back right, back left then King (back centre)

Every mob in this complex conned 60 or 61. SKs will harm touch for 970 or 1000+, Ice Masters are the most dangerous casters and will nuke hard, landing some over 1000 - but they are bound by Line of Sight rules - so getting them pulled back to group isnt too hard.

There is one wanderer in this area - as you look into the room from the secret wall he patrols the ramp nearest you from the pool up to Earth Seer Gamolk. The ramp farthest from you (from the other side of the pool up to Gamolk) has no wanderer and has two good safe spaces to pull to. (No spawns to repop on you)

As mentioned elsewhere the repop time is short - so DPS is needed to progress through the spawns.

RE: A little info
# Aug 12 2003 at 1:51 PM Rating: Decent
Hehehe good point and idea/tactics Darenya, its been some time since I played with a treehugger =). WoT should keep a high 50+ or better group that knows their stuff outa trouble. I would add that our 59 Paladin could not use his pacify on all high level mobs but my higher level cleric AE version worked well. We always get into trouble at times though when I am involved in pulling...hey, clerics CAN pull!! lol

Still, even with Darenya's good tactics noted, I caution any pickup group to have a 60+ enchanter or bard handy. Relying on root locks or tank mez can and will get you into trouble because you didnt realize you were playing with a 14 year old main tank who cant type fast and doesnt use hotkeys, and a 38 year old ebayer who just got his cleric. ;)

Old Warder area
# Aug 04 2003 at 8:07 AM Rating: Decent
What I'd like to know is what now spawns that is special in the kitchen area, or whatever that area is called where the Warder used to drop that used to drop the shroud of nature?

There is likely some new special spawn there, if anyone knows what it is, I'm curious.

And are the old items like idol of the thorned not in the game anymore?

Earth Mystic Gedak, middle spawn on top of the platform in the small room next to the open air dining hall.

I have yet to see the idol of the thorned drop but there are still a number of named mobs that may exist as all common mobs seem to have a named mob type. Some rare drops are still unknown at this time even in camps with know named mobs.

Iksar prisoners?

Its a bit out of topic question but...
Seems that iksar prisoners for shammy skull quest are moved. Jail in Droga was empty. I found some quest NPCs in FM tunnel located -1900; 2200 but not prisoners.
Does anyone know where they put Iksar Prisoners?

Inner Sanctum

Very good time for a 60+ group in the Inner Sanctum. We spent about two hours in the old Chief area (grp of 2 necros, 1 cleric, 1 shaman, 1 magician, 1 wizard) all between 60 and 65. The mobs down here were around level 60 and 61, hit in the 200's, some of them are SK's, Necro's, Shaman, and Wizards, and the spellcasters do cast like crazy and even wearing my resist gear I was getting nailed by awful spells fairly often.

The best part about this area, the mobs are densely packed, and with a good puller you can single out most of the pulls. The respawn rate is insane so once you get rolling it is non-stop killing. We found that we could kill the three or four mobs in one half of the Chief Area, and the 3 mobs where the Chief used to spawn before we were getting mobs repopping.

If you're looking for a change of pace, Droga certainly is a fun spot to try out now.

Very nice place for high level groups now. Gobs drop decent plat, some gems, and exp is very very good.

We went down to the Jail area looking for the backstab spear for our rogue. There is also some high elf lady there who asks for 3 things-- master shackle key, restorative potion, and rations of some sort. We found all but the potion just wandering about.

The mobs are fairly weak for their level, hopefully this will become a good spot for higher levels to level up.

We did kill Jailer xxxx and he did drop a 15/24 spear with + Backstab. Really easy fight for that drop. All the mobs in that jail area are red to 58 so not an easy area by any means 8)

I'd have to disagree with the experience comment. Went here the other day with a guild group, no chanter so we used SK puller who would FD and I would bow tag on multiples.

My warrior was only lvl 50, and even though the mobs conned mostly even to red, the experience was very slow. We left there, went to Velk's and got much better exp off blue spiders.

Angry Goblin

Has ANYONE seen the angry goblin since the patch? Does he still spawn and what is his spawn time, have they moved him somewhere safer like nurga?
Does anyone know how this will be affecting those wishing to complete greenmist and the shackle of steel/whistling fists?
Safe Room

Can anyone comment specifically on the dangers of reaching the quest NPC in the "safe room?" Do the new, higher level mobs see through invis? Is the guy still there? Is it now harder or easier for a low level to cast invis and cross his fingers to go get that diamond inlaid mask? I still have alts that need it!

The mobs don't see invis.They don't agro as much as they used to.You can get fairly close before they agro.If you do get agro your toast though.The lower ones hit for about 150 the higher ones for as high as 250.The ones around the quest guy are in the middle of that range and hit for about 200.We stood by him uninvis and got no goblin agro.Dunno how it would be for a lower level.

Well, it looks like they fixed a lot of things in this zone with the revamp.

One there are a whole lot less wanderers and the spacing of the spawns is quite good.

The mobs start out around lvl 50 just after the drop down from the entrance and as you work your way back around to the dining room and back to the exit (through the track room) they move up to around 57-59.

I haven't messed around in the inner sanctum yet, but from what we could see, that is where the new drops are coming from.

Going to hit that part soon, but it is now where most of the camping is done.

It is now a very pleasant dungeon crawl for a early to mid 50s group.

We even dug our way down to one of the Nurga entrances and were going to dig our way out through the other zone, but time made us turn back around and fight out through the dining room.

Good Luck all and enjoy a nice new zone

Totally in agreement Droga is a whole new can of beans now. And as stated the mobs are the levels mentioned above.

Biggest difference in the mobs is the type there are a lot more casters in here now then there were before and yes far fewer roamers.
Any ideas?
