Can Solo the Fab 4


This rare aqua goblin shaman drops a belt and totem valued by priests.

Jan 18, 2014 patch: "Rewrote Bilge Farfathom script. He now spawns in more random locations and has different pathing. Decreased respawn time of phs."

Wikipedia Updated Feb 14, 2020.

This cycle is difficult to do without a tracker.

Respawn on Dagnor's trash is 2 minutes, and the Fabulous Four respawn is a little longer. The same 15-20 mobs path into the Fab 4 to keep track a mess. If you can park, snare,or occupy them somewhere track stabilizes quickly. Sometimes they are overwhelmed by trash and die, killing them gives negative faction hits. Ignore the Aqua Goblin Shaman that pops in the NW corner. Bilge always has 1 of 4 placeholders up on a massive zone wide path. A Cauldron Rat, Aqua Goblin Shaman, Aqua Goblin Mariner, or an Undertow Skeleton with no loot table that flees under 20% health.

The cycle respawn time is 10 minutes, the Bilge chance is estimated at 5%. They pop randomly at any map point and travel on any line in either direction. It crosses the island often, goes through dwarf rock long ways & side ways, or over the tallest peak, or along the edges. It goes past Unrest, or sits on a cliff, or up on a pillar, or a high wall, or in a vacant corner. It also likes red marks on the ground and doesn't stay put for long. It usually swims at or near the surface of the lake but occasionally deep dives. On average every 45-60m the ph walks into the Fab Four and resets. The map includes 2+ hours of pathing, avoiding F4 twice, and is incomplete. In the event zone dynamics trigger Bilge, he will solo the Fab Four, charge off at SoW speed with 50% health, and live until player killed.

If you can snare, park, or babysit the Fabulous Four for 10 minutes you can find the ph on track after all the trash near them respawns. It is usually around the 15-25th mob on track. You find it, kill it, time it, exactly 10 minutes later the top mob on track will be ph, or Bilge that can pop anywhere in the zone. Repeat.
