Blackburrow is the main home of the Sabertooth clan of gnolls in Oceangreen. The Sabertooth clan has recently claimed this lair as their own, locking themselves away from human invaders and the dark plague that threatens the area.

To access this zone, request the task "Summary Execution" from Bracka Darkpaw. This will allow you to zone in. After completing that task, you will have permanent access to the zone.

Not the best spot for me. Level 80 cleric 30k hp 4k ac 10ca/8cs 3sb. I tried a gnoll at the entrance and it was difficult, but not impossible. He ran off at 20% health and i decided to leave.

You have to get a little deep in the zone but you can find nice places to fish.
I ended up at -295, 507, -192 at the end of what looks like a boat ramp.
I came down the water fall, ran over a piece of land to this lake

P -507.6498, 295.3551, -194.5599, 0, 0, 0, 3, Fishing_spot

But the fishing is horrible. I started with fishing bait and switched to homemade bait but it was still bad.

In 15 minutes I caught (with 206 skill) the following:

10 rusty daggers
8 sandals
3 fresh fish
8 fish scales
5 razorgill
2 hound pike

I came for the razergill.

Average forage here, nothing exciting that I saw
Cave lichen(3), tuft of gnoll fur(6), rabbit(1), roots(3), fishing grubs(1), berries(1), Veggies(7), water

Pretty much an hour's gone by and I have 6 razerfish now

One of the many things I like about this zone is that it's laid out generally the same way as the original BlackBurrow. The first time I zoned in I was completely lost, but as I went through Oceangreen progression and the Bayle aug tasks, I started to get my bearings. If you're familiar with original BB, try to imagine it blown up by a factor of four, and it'll start to click. My "a-ha" moment came when I found Guard Ellery on the "elite ledge."

Spent a while hunting around in there tonight. Some observations:

Reavers, Ravagers, and Named are only see invis mobs in the zone. Named See thru IVU.
Named mobs spawn in static locations with specific PHs. Did not see any rotation or varied spawn points like in the BB revamped for legacy.
Enraged Gnoll high shaman has a static spawn point, no apparent PHs. Sry no /loc yet.
Enraged Gnoll High Commanders and Named mobs hit around 2-3k, max hit from high commander was 3996.
The only 3 high commanders we saw were in the commanders rooms near snake pit.
Elite Room near snake pit, Elite Ledge, and Commander room by Barrels are nerfed, no named spawned for us.
Gallantry Rk2, Unity of the Spirits Rk2, Requiem for the Lost Rk2, Devout Remedy Rk2, Rune of Yozan Rk2, and Carve Whistle Rk2 all drop in BB from various mobs, not just named.
Gnolls are VERY social, medium agro ranges, pacify and harmony work, slowable, snare/rootable.
Names and Burly Guards can NOT be snared or rooted. All others can.

thats all I can think of off the top of my head.

Be warned. Setting up in the alcoves on the top floor can be very dodgey. Had mobs warp there when pulled, and bringing up to 3 friends...

It's Summary Execution that unlocks the door.
