Old Sebilis

Quick Facts





Level Range:
43 - 60

Send a correction
Sebilis was built by Venril Sathir during the height of the Iksar Empire, and was once a stronghold for the Iksars of Kunark.
Following the death of Emperor Ganak and a steady onslaught of slave uprisings,
goblin invasions, and forest giant attacks, the Iksar Empire declined in power.
Trakanon dealt one of the final blows to the Empire,
destroying the city of Sebilis, and was himself mortally wounded as a result.
Presently, the ruins of Old Sebilis are occupied by a clan of Frogloks.
Iksar skeletons and ghouls roam the city's old burial grounds while a poisonous, undead Trakanon can be found in a lair far below the main city.

Many years following their stronghold's destruction, the Iksars established themselves in Cabilis, far west from the site of a dark moment in their history.

Anyone at least 46th level can zone into Sebilis without a key. The old Key to Sebilis quest is still active,
but is now optional (though required if you are under 46).

So, I logged back into EQ after like 14 years away... I'm 65 in full PoP Gear. I decided to take a tour down memory lane and check out Old Sebilis. I pull the first to frogs right inside the zone, one comes up and hits me for 150,000... WTF... I can't find any info on the zone being upgraded or whatever... I was gonna go down an farm Juggs. I didn't even bother "considering" that frog, only killed him 1000 times back in the day.

Im a 48 Enchanter on Flippy. I went to Trakanon's Teeth to do the quest and ran around invis'd looking for the guys. I found a Forager and started attacking looking to pull toward the west wall. But, I aggro'd about 4 other mobs instantly. This was along the river close to the Swamp of No Hope zone. I went back with a Druid to track and upon zoning in, he saw about 5 of each mobs up. So, it doesnt seem like the Hunters and Foragers are rare on Flippy like some of the posts say. The druid pulled to EJ zone and we killed them pretty quickly. Both hit for a max of about 120-140. They both dropped the medallions on the first kill. Invis vs undead through the cemetary area to the Emporer.

At some point this was changed. I remember it taking an entire afternoon with tracking to get a guild group keyed around 2003.

Recently I was in the zone, and as you report multiple key mobs up all over the place. I got my key in less than 20 minutes without a tracker.

Ok, I have not spent alot of time in Seb, really just go there to kill froggies for the alchamey components. But recently I came to a locked door at the Pyramid down the center pathway, usually just go down to the lower section via the water. Now I could not get the door to open via beating a mob to low health and letting it path to the door to open it so I am guessing it is a keyed door? If so where do I get said key? Anyone have any ideas please. Would love to know what is in there and be able to cleared the whole zone, hehe.

Swimming your way around this is an option - it is a non-exploitable way to get around the need of a rogue to pick the lock, or the ability to side-step.

Shrink twice. Wedge yourself into the corner of the door. Camp out. Camp back in. You'll be on the other side of the door. (at least, this is how I do it.)

If you can't gate, you might be screwed. It's locked from both sides.

That door is Rog-only door. There is no key. It requires Pick Lock skill of 200 or higher.

There are ways to bypass it, as there are with any such door. Shadowstepping, Illusions, etc. There is no geometry bug on this door to wedge through, and the mobs on the other side of the door don't summon, so that doesn't work either.

Raid zone.....
# Oct 28 2008 at 6:11 PM Rating: Decent
Ever since this has been made a 'hot zone', the mobs have pretty much been tuned up to epic zone like mobs. They have had their HP's morbidly increased, and they hit harder. My Warrior on FV server has 6800 HPs, and nearly 1700ac, and I still have to end up running for the zone when I get adds, and have more then 3, and sometimes only 3 mobs on me. F*cking Ridiculous.

And I forgot to mention my warrior is level 52, with 6800 HPs, 1680ac. Use level 50 healing and haste potions, along with DS potion. My primary wep does 19 damage, 19 delay, and secondary 18 damage, 24 delay...not one of my peices of equipment have under 90 Hit points. This toon is totally stacked, and still 3 blue conning mobs give me trouble...that's right...FUC*ING BLUE MOBS almost kill a toon with HPs And AC that high. Anyway, i'm just giving a heads up as to how morbidly rigged this zone is now.

I just did the Forager/Hunter key quest for my 39 Warrior last week (39 at the time) and am now going to do it for my new 36 Necro.

You still have to turn in the two medallions to the ghost and get the idol if you want to zone in and you are level 45 or less. If you are 46 or higher, you do not need to do the key quest unless you want it to make a full /key ring.

How to get past pyramid
# Jul 16 2007 at 7:56 PM Rating: Decent
31 posts
Doesn't seem that this has been covered entirely YET, which amazes me. haha. Considering it's a ooooold zone. (I know there's map's now, but anywayw...)

Anyway, to get past the pyramid you need a rogue aparently (well this has been told before). BUT, if you don't have one around you, go back to the bridge and jump down into the water, doesn't matter what way you swim cause you will get to the same pointeventually. But the closest is to the right when you come from the pyramid. Then find a hole in the ground under the water, takes you down into a room, and if I remember correct, jump down into another water and swim on. In the middle there somewhere you can go up to get air, but this is where you go to get further down actually, and there you go. Should now be by some frogloks and prison cells, just wander right past them straight forward.
What I'm not sure of is how you get to the undead part of Sebilis doing it this way, there might be some hidden doors etc. Look at your map! :)

This is a known issue and a fix is coming.

On the Developer Chat held February 21, 2007 at Stratics House of Commons, someone asked, "Is there a timer when we can expect the Sebilis Key quest to be fixed? As a hotzone, many of us are eager to play there, but cannot."

Rashere (Travis McGeathy, Lead Designer for EverQuest) said, "I've been working on this exact problem today and think I have a solution now. Once this chat is done, I'll be verifying it and getting the fix into QA. For reference, this only seems to affect people who are trying to get into the zone using only the idol and don't have it on their key ring yet. So, it should be fixed on live servers very soon, although it will require a full patch to get it out there."

# Dec 12 2006 at 7:56 AM Rating: Decent
Ok folks I deceided I wanted this augment for my Beast lord, hey ac helps when you wear leather. I asked in general chat if anyone had this, several people did and sent me a link, so I sent them a tell and asked where they happened to get it in Seb and what did it drop off of. Armed with this information and my Seb key, I had a friendly druid gate me to the emerald jungle, then did the long run thru Trakanon's teeth to old Seb. I was the only one in zone when I got there and I started killing right from the entrance around to the exit. One person told me that his augment dropped right near the first bridge so I went back and forth killing frogs since everyone said when they started the fight the unmasked changeling started out looking like a frog. I was there for 3 hours killing with out stop watching my buffs fall off, filling my pockets with gems and various loot. Finally when I was about to quit it occured to me what if there was only one or maybe two unmasked changelings in the whole zone and while their pop was random and location was varied maybe you had to kill them where they are hiding. With this hope in my heart I headed out on a one way killing spree down past the jail (where I had not killed) and into the lower level rooms third pull from the room at the bottom the sneaky little froggy turned into the unmasked changeling at about 70% health and I was never so happy to kill a most dashing Iksar Beastlord (they change into who ever has the agro at the moment they dip below 70% health)I looted my augment, drank my field of bone potion and headed home.

Correction to post. Augment can drop off any mob that pops in zone, got one off a beetle. If you are in an area and do not see an unmasked changeling then you have to hunt in areas that others have been killing in. I strongly feel that there are only so many of these mobs in a zone and they will not move around, you have to kill them where they happen to spawn which is random through out the zone.

OK sorry if this is a stupid question, but have the mobs here had the HP boosted recently?

(went away for about three years they were NEVER this hard to kill hehe)

Got a 53 sk with decent gear and I can kill em, it just takes a decent amount of time. Just curious.

# Dec 08 2006 at 1:42 PM Rating: Decent
Back in June there was a patch that increased the strength of all pre-PoP (perhaps pre-Luclin, it's been a while - not sure) mobs. HP, AC, ATK, Max Dmg, and even attack speed were all increased. Hit point increase was quite dramatic, usually double or close to it.

As always, of course, it didn't work as they intended. Mobs in zones that were never intended to be strengthened were (some LoY zones were a nightmare) and even greeny trash in Sebilis was hitting for 400+ for a while. Fortunately, they corrected the issue, but hunting in old zones is not, and never will be, quite the same/easy as it once was.

You, sir/madam, are the soul of hypocrisy.

You constantly complain about being 'flamed', yet every sentence you type here is rude to the point of offensive. In fact, one could be forgiven for concluding, based on your unwillingness to simply clarify whom the first post was directed towards, that your sole purpose in posting these is to antagonize and insult other posters. A troll, as it were.

Regardless, I addressed the issue with my first post, and continuing this would be a needless waste of Alla's space, and the time of anyone unfortunate enough to browse through this.

As to the edit you allude to; one - and only one - letter was changed. Seperate -> separate. It's an old mistake that slips through occasionally when typing quickly, and Alla's wouldn't let me edit the post when I noticed it.

To re-iterate (for anyone still reading this looking for information on that key), to enter Sebilis, the Trakanon Idol is needed; a link exists (The Key to Sebilis) at the bottom of the zone description at the top of this page. For entering the pyramid, though, I'm unaware of any key capable of opening the door; you may want to befriend a rogue.

You have yet to clarify which posts and which key you were referring to. The logical assumption, based on your reply, would be the posts from four years ago asking about the key to Sebilis. More on that later.

Another thing, to state that I wasn't going to flame and turn around and do it anyway isn't called a 'grammatical error'. It would be closer to a 'false statement'.

My original statement: "Sadly, I managed my way through the grammatical atrocity that comprised your post." The next sentence was a separate statement and, perhaps, should have been placed into a new paragraph to disassociate it with that sentence. I simply prefer to avoid one sentence paragraphs. Nevertheless, one had nothing to do with the other, and I apologize if it seemed that way.

Sadly, I managed my way through the grammatical atrocity that comprised your post. It seems asinine to say "I'm not going to flame" and the proceed to do so, but in the face of your staggering misconceptions, it's really rather humorous.

The link you refer to gives information on the key required to enter the zone.

First, if you are referring to the earliest posts seeking information about the key to enter Sebilis, do remember that they were made over four years ago! Regrettably, I cannot tell you whether the link to the key quest existed then, but if these are the posts you refer to, your blatant assumption that it did is ridiculous.

Secondly, if you are referring to the more recent posts about the key to the pyramid, a short exploration of the zone would show you that - no, the Trakanon Idol does not grant access to this area of Sebilis. I'm unaware whether a rogue is actually required or if there is an actual key for the door.

If you were talking about something else entirely, then in my defense, attempting to translate your post nearly gave me a migraine.

And yes, my post was not much kinder than yours, but meh. It's late, and I'm cranky!
