Napalm spawn point
# Jul 01 2008 at 4:11 PM Rating: Decent
For those curious, these spawn at the center of the G,H,9,10 columns/rows. It's just northwest of the area where Morbolger spawns next to the LaTheine zone. You'll have to take the path needed to find the Water shard for Zilart Mission 5. I've pasted it below.

La Theine Plateau Enter the canyon in F-6 from the east side and go down to enter Ordelle's Caves at F-7. Make a left and go to I-6. Then head to H-9. After climbing all the way up, go to H-12 and drop down the hole. Then go to I-11. After the map change, exit at G-10 to La Theine Plateu. The headstone is at G-11.
Is it really a Napalm?

So when it says Napalm, does it really mean Willo-the-Wisp? I've seen a couple of these guys in the Caves, but not a Napalm per se....

Has anyone pinpointed a location of the two area pops?
Skeptical of Galka Fang Sack drop...

I came to look at today's update for Galka Fang Sacks and saw that Napalms are listed as droppers. I find myself...skeptical. Why would a mob that has nothing to do with a beastman invasion drop the item that triggers it?

Every time I've gone farming for the Galka Fang Sack, I pop into the Napalm room and kill them on the off chance that a flame degen will drop. Plenty of kills, a few degens, but never a Garrison trigger item.
Horrible Drop Rate

Hate how some people can just walk through, kill both Napalms and get a sword from each.

I'm 0/32 here now. I know they both spawn about every 12 minutes, but that's still over 3 hours, not including travel, for a few Bomb Arms and Ash.

Update: 1/38, woo. Accidentally ate my 4-leaf Mangragora Bud and the next Napalm dropped it.

No one kills these or the eles that spawn in the room anymore due to the changed Stroper Chyme spawns. I have yet to get a Flame Degen off of them though ;_; even with /thf.... /sigh.

I agree with Dartagnan, you should have no problems killing this mob, but self destruct OWNS, i got killed by this mob for 695 points of damage ><, and im a paladin 50

If you think these hurt, go fight some Ancient Bombs in Oldton Movalpolos, hehehe....

53 Monk with 1181 HP, Self-destruct here did around 500 damage. In Oldton, theirs did around 800 XD

I'm not sure what the big fear with these guys is on this. lvl 70 rdm. got hit with it while I wasn't even paying attention to the game and it didn't even pop my stoneskin much less do damage. and if it was doing 800dmg it would have crushed my stoneskin like piece of paper.

I know I'm substantially higher lvled but my def isn't exactly tanked as an rdm.

This mob, as far as I can tell, only spawns 2 in one location approx. every 14 min. and is heavily camped usually.

no the mob that spawns around it (stroper chyme) is what's heavily camped. these spawn right before the chyme pops

This is correct. People always kill these things because they get in the way of their /targetnpc voke macro for stroper chyme. Just let everyone camping stroper know you just want to kill the bombs. If you kill them fast enough they won't even bother killing the bombs.
