Hardcore started so it stopped me from doing hunter in kunark and i am fine with that no problem. But this is just anonying and stupid. It isn't like you are having to kill a ph until it spawns. Like I said I camped the guy in KT for 180 or something phes before it finally spawned. I don't mind as long as you can do something to get it. I will never play EQ again until someone can make a fix for this stupid spawn. Sitting in a zone for 122+ hours doing nothing is just boring and stupid. And what after 122+ hours is may just stay as the invs NPC that can only be seen if you use a special program... I agree who was stupid enough to put this as a required spawn instead of an optional. The queen is really bad too but at least in 2+ weeks I have seen it spawn 3 times vs 0 of this stupid rat. I am a keyring addict too and have been for years. I have I think every keyring item that exist on my keyring (maybe not from CoV because I stopped playing before that came out). I don't think the key you get from killing this guy goes on keyring so I never cared about trying to get it and as a bard I can just pick the lock.
