Found Perrin today in Withered Lands! My partner and I were on opposite ends of the zone ( I was in Alivan, he was in the starter area) I asked the guard who gave me the waypoint...right next to where my partner was clear across the zone! Tracking brought us right to him. So the guard did work, he gave the waypoint correctly, and I am so happy I could dance. The POI is already listed on EQ2MAPS, so I didnt get the waypoints but he was down near the started area behind a tree.

Dont give up, they do exist...thans GninjaSMILEY

According to the guards, Perrin has been up 3 times already this weekend on SP and quickly taken.

Each guard I speak to gives me the same wp over and over. Different guards give different wp. There are only guards at Alivan and they never give a wp outside of Alivan. I suspect the guards only give the wp nearest to them, for roaming guards, the nearest point to where they are at the time. I have never had a guard give me a wp outside of Alivan let alone the other side of the zone.

Perrin has never yet shown up on track for me. I'm sure that I'll find him but I suspect the devs are having some fun with us now SMILEY

We do not think about a transfer of US server chars from EU costumers in Eq2. That should solve the biggest worries the EQ2 community has at the moment. We do not want to interfere with long build ingame relationships. This is the current way we think about it.

I play on the AB sever and been checking daily in the mornings when no luck yet. I really thinking i never get it due to i play a ever heavy pop sever. I was able to pick them up on another sever with ease but my mains are on AB and the asking the guards about the loc works for all 3 i was able to get all three of them on the other sever. Is there a way to check to spawn time or rate for the AB sever

Ranga: Glad to see im not the only one finding the guards track points to be a bit screwed up.

Maybe its a Splitpaw only thing

Will the elite mercs be visible if I already have a suspended merc, or do I have to be "merc-less" to see them?

I am not so sure it is considered Exploit from SoEs side. After all it has been up on this forum for quite some time now without being deleted. Also Zam tells you can use the guards to find them. I do not think they would if they were not allowed by Sony.

Quote from ZAM: 

Tips: You can track these mercenaries (or use the Ranger merc from Kelethin to track) or you could try asking local guards for "elite mercenary" if guards are available in the zone!

10:15 AM central, Kenny in Nek forest.Antonia Bayle.

-566, 0, -339, right beside Mound Lake.  I logged on right around server up from downtime, say 9:35. Asked guard at dock, she pointed me right to him.  I tried to get hold of a friend who badly wanted an elite, while campin him, but to no avail...had to snap him up.

Few things to note:

1. I was on within 10 minutes of server up.  Perhaps coincidence, Can't honestly comment.

2.  The guard pointed me directly to him, With his full name and job descriptor.  I simply searched "Kenny"

3. I had a mercenary already; it allowed me to "hire Replacement".

You can have any merc you like on you while searching for an Elite Merc EXCEPT for the merc you are looking for.. So if you have Kenny for example you can never see him again until you free him.

This is not suprising on a heavy population server I am guessing there are folks looking all the time. So if he has been popping in the mornings and you are checking in the eve's it will be hard for you to ever find him because folks are snagging him first thing in the morning.

Also, just a correction to the FAQ...both that I have, Matri and Kenny, cost 3 plat every 30 minutes to maintain, not 5.

Does asking a guard still work?

Ive been looking for Perrin and Kenny for about 2 weeks, wandering around, tracking, and asking guards.  No luck yet...

That works.  I've gotten directed by them to elite merc positions several times, my wife has in my presence, and friends have told me it has worked for them.  A white X appears on your map and you get that message in chat about N, E, W, S and above or below.  Have wings and all necessary languages (druzaic with Perrin is the only one we know to be necessary but we have all languages anyways) and of course 30 plat with you at all times.

I've read all these threads and can only find one small issue that I and my wife think may be incorrect.  The guards in Alivan have been reported here to not be able to tell you where Perrin is on the other side of the zone (say in front of the giant fort structure) if he is up.  We feel that that is probably incorrect, and if Perrin is up, the guard will tell you.  We found our Perrins tho by cycling alts thru reported positions.  Obtained elites were already there when we got there.  We haven't confirmed this yet, but feel it is very unlikely.  If that is happening, it is a bug isolated to those guards only in Alivan, and quite frankly, we do not notice as many bugs as others (elite mercs cure negative feelings about the game like magic).

We found Matri and Kenny via guard direction (the guards who show telescopes on the mouse pointer when you right click them) just like when trying to find a banker or achievement counsellor, etc.

We just type Matri, Kenny, and Perrin and move on to the next alt in the cycle if they say no.  When a guard says yes, the excitement and nervousness to go get the merc overwhelm.

I know, it seems like I have bragged too much in this note, but it is not that hard to get one.  Yes, you will probably put a considerable amount of time into finding them.  We position alts at all known spots and cycle; I do that once an hour at low population times if I can.  But actually I have to put more time into PR runs, etc., because the expense really adds if you don't pay attention.  But its worth it....

Grand, Freeport

Hey, was reading a lot of forum threads and saw the elite merc related one in -   In Testing Feedback -  titled Perrin Wanderhoof,  Fury Merc and replied to it before I realized that was not the best place to put it.

I feel that you may benefit from some of our observations and invite you to look there.  I am sorry for putting it there.  I did not put it there to further cause a sense of secrecy and doubt.

Got get yourself one.  Its really not all that hard.  I promise you that.

Grand, Freeport

Got Kenny on Server Up on Antonia Bayle on Tuesday, after the game update.  This is the second time I have gotten Kenny on a server up, just throwing that out there.  He was right around the commonlands Griffon station; never took the loc down because I was calling my lady in to grab him.

Subsequently, my son got him Today, Friday, exactly 3 days after the last pick up.  I had him wait on the docks around 10:30 PDT, and after a few requests to the guards he popped.  He was near the Tombs of night entrance northeast of the docks.

Hate to see this buried back at page 4 or whatever - quick reply/update:

1. Which Merc Did You Find?  Matri2. What /loc coordinates did you find them at? 214.94, 479.19, 1,275.573. Which server did you find them on? AB4. What Date and Time did you find them? 8/11/2012 @ 6:18PM PST5. Was the location Confirmed or Reported?  ...

Additionally - Que guard pointed right toward MH where she was up top roughly on top of the banker or whatever.

I am not sure if this was ever mentioned elsewhere on the thread; I looked and didn't see it... In order to speak to Perrin you have to know Druzaic.

Perrin seems to be 3 days on the nose time after time.  Matri and Kenny have some variance, but it has always been a minimum of 3 days.

They should just make the pre-order or collectors edition of the next expansion have an elite merc of choice.  I am sure that would boost those sales.  

Just saying.....money talks
