Hay boys, I'd like to ask about Culthor the Gatekeeper in solC. I believe Toe said the drop rate on the Smoldering Embers of Solusek was 5%, which seems pretty standard for all of the bot 1.5 items. Unfortunately he's on a....5? 6? day timer. I've been camping this guy for a couple months and I'm getting a little disheartened. Can we adjust the drop rate to account for his very slow spawn rate? The other 1.5's I've got were a time sink, and I'm okay with that, but this is too much.

Cheers, MGK

He has been camping this thing like clock work. A time sinks one thing, but this has turned in to a Machine life sink. Poor Machines :frustrated: :frustrated: :frustrated: :frustrated:

Seems excessive to me, but <shrug> I think these are Caved's and the intent was UberRare lifetime achievement award kind of quests, but I for one camped Raster of Guk for months on Live - every waking moment - I just gave up and bought an epic equivalent feeling I had wasted my game time. I would hate to have similar feelings toward The Rathe server.

At one time (many, MANY moons ago), JBoots dropped in Najena , I spent three days waiting for a turn to get mine (no sleep) - just as I finally got my turn to be in the Najena group (room) , server went down and I had to start over again.
My wife thought I finally went insane over the game.

Since no one has objected yet,

Considering the long re-spawn of this guy, I changed it to 20%. Let me know if this is to far swung the opposite side.

Old post but had to reply.

Mad ? Maybe, however , I did set my alarm one night for Haddens earring, yes I got it, yes, my wife thought I'd completely lost the plot.

No you were not 'Insane' well not much anyway. :)

I have to comment on Lox's Jboot drop with my own from that period prior to them removing them from Drelzna. I had never set foot in Najena, but the night prior to the Tuesday patch in which they were getting removed a friend took me there to camp them. We got there around 5pm and there was a massive line of people extending outside of her room. I didn't think I had a chance of getting them before 10am (patch time) or whatever the next day. As the night progressed people started dropping out of the line and I ended up with a pair 20 or so minutes before the server came down, the 2nd to last pair to drop.

The necro in front of me ended up being my main duo partner for years and the cleric after me ended up being a close friend too. Sadly I've lost contact with both over the years and while that wasn't my most insane camp as far as time spent, it places first on my list due to who I met. And as everyone will likely agree, especially back in those days, that is one of the things that has always set EQ apart from every other MMO since, the ability to create friendships due to what many will complain are "insane" or "boring" game mechanics.
