well after publish 19 there has been no sighting of these by me , i've looked several timessince then with absolutely no sighting at all. This is odd to me since i used to see them commonly, so i wonder if publish 19 has forced them from spawning at all, so i ask you all if any of you have seen any at all since publish 19
Soulsyphon Tue May 17 2005 4:35:00 PM
ok, these are the resists for them off a very high dna sample
woloa Sat May 14 2005 3:43:00 PM
i beleave the spawn are broken they dont spawn 3-4 times any more. what has worked for me post CU is drop a waypoint drive off 500m then drive back if u examine you will notice that the ham is different from the 1st time i keep doing this till a babey spawns or it despawns completely

who said they were extinct?
Samoht O'Ruadhain Tue Mar 22 2005 1:10:00 PM
Just wanted to verify that these guys are NOT extinct. I just found a spawn on the Corbantis server yesterday and another one today.
hossp Tue Jan 11 2005 12:52:00 AM

Taime Sixx Sun Jan 2 2005 6:54:00 AM
Does anyone know when the best time to find swamp stalkers is? I've found 3 spawns which seem to be mainly active around 7pm GMT
Xanth Tue Dec 14 2004 3:29:00 PM
When I got mine, it was a lairless spawn with 1 adult. I killed that adult and 3 more after her before a baby appeared.
Nigs Tue Dec 14 2004 11:08:00 AM
I found a swamp stalker today but no babies, do they have lairs or are they solitary hunters and you have to kill and then wait for a baby to spawn?
hossp Mon Dec 13 2004 10:31:00 PM
just found a nice snow white one..going to have to get rid of one of my 2 silver ones
Surolan Mon Oct 18 2004 5:37:00 AM
I got one of these about a month ago on Europe: Chimera, right near the listed wp's ...so thanks for that :)
A total of 4 spawns, the third being a baby!!!
The forth spawn, spawned "inside" a house..."you cannot see this object" O_o Yes I can!!!
irocz Thu Oct 14 2004 4:34:00 AM
snagged one of thease also 2nite killed 2 adults b4 a white baby spawned...looked to b a 3 min spawn on them
Xanth Sat Oct 9 2004 2:51:00 AM
Got one of these tonight ! I was running circles around the perimeter of the swamp area and ran into an adult. I killed that one and noticed that another adult spawned a few minutes later. I killed 2 more adults before the baby spawned. Was located at -42 1240 on the Kauri Server
Diakonov Fri Oct 1 2004 2:14:00 PM
given the low CL on this cat, I'd say it's one of the better pets out there. Having 2 out as a master CH, would be too cool =)
Ness_Gorath Mon Sep 20 2004 9:20:00 PM
Last saturday I went to Naboo to give my friend a black devil gulg i tamed for him. I decided well since im here ill go look for swamp stalkers. It was odd though I found 2 spawns of them at different WPs I have. On the 4/4 one in the second spawn it killed me.. :( BUT when i was leaving keren to go back to the spawn ... a swampie was about 500m from keren in the feild. So i killed the first 3. And the forth spawns a massive gnort in the spot so i figure that I didnt get one when all of a sudden a baby spawned. I was cheering out loud when i tamed it on my 2nd try. It was white as can be but it had 9.3k ham. So i decided to head back to the spawn that killed me and when i got there it respawned so i killed the first and right away the second was a baby. I tamed it on my second try. It was dark grey with a white tail. I love them They work so well together. I named them Myth and Legend and each have different personalitys. Awsome.
Cerena Tue Sep 14 2004 12:56:00 AM
I tamed two of them tonight, both within one hour. They were found SW of Keren. Here is a screenshot I took with them: http://www.imagedump.com/index.cgi?pick=setandget&tp=122746&poll_id=0&category_id=20&warned=y
lammergeier Sun Sep 12 2004 1:41:00 PM
I usually just avoid these, since a CDEF pistol isn't the best weapon to take them down. I decided to try my luck anyway, and called a pet.
after two kills, I wasn't expecting much. I waited patiently for the third spawn. minutes passed, and I figured I was done. I started walking off, and sure enough, a baby had spawned just out of range. took three tries, but it's in the datapad.
now I can get picky about the color, and start looking for more.
Ness_Gorath Sat Sep 11 2004 12:51:00 PM
Lucky you! I wish i was that lucky... The game doesnt seem to like me very much
Tukkaryyk Sat Sep 11 2004 10:12:00 AM
I was searching for one when I see an adult. I get off of my bike about 20m away only to find another spawn right next to it!
So I had two spawns very close and was feeling pretty good about my chances. I decide to go for 1 spawn at the time and start killing the adults. 1 down... 2 down... 3 down... Oh no! Other spawn poofed! I wait for last spawn but it's an adult. :(
While fighting it I see a red dot pop out again: the other spawn is back! After I finished the first spawn, I kill 2 other adults and then a little baby appears. Tamed it on the first try.
Ness_Gorath Fri Sep 3 2004 2:33:00 AM
Wow i was looking on and off for these dudes along with the great plains stalker. Found 2 spawns SW of keren in the 6 weeks.. no baby spanwed from eather. I wish i could get 2 since you can take them both out that would be sweet!
thejudge54 Fri Aug 20 2004 10:54:00 PM
I spent about 3 days looking for a baby...I must of killed 20 abults before a baby spawn. Tamed on the first time. The waypoints were great. thx
lupowop Sat Jul 31 2004 10:10:00 AM
If anyone has one of these for sale on Bria please let me know...lupowop
Snarky Mon Jul 5 2004 10:14:00 PM
I have an exact pair like Graxo. One is silver/ white, other is dark brown/black. Both have 9.3 HAM. When they are both laying side by side after a "pet". they are very impressive. Clearing spawns worked for me, just the spawns without lairs, like Rogue Fambaas, lone peko pekos, rogue Falmpausts,(sp) etc. All the swampy areas SW of Kern is where I found them all. Good luck! Actually, I had to hunt them a lot longer than my GPS. Almost ashamed to say it, but the 1st spawn I found of Greater plains Stalker, 3rd pop was a baby. Freaking unreal luck I know, but I am glad to have him. Hardest part of that tame was to keep it alive as it kept charging into a nearby nest of defenders. Good luck all and I am on Kettermoor name of Packa if anyone wants to look for swampies or GPS, give me a holler.
scobra567 Sat Jun 19 2004 5:51:00 PM
Ive found 3 spawns of these in the last 2 days and all 3 spawned 4 adults. I guess ill keep on lookin.
wolvy68 Tue Jun 1 2004 2:23:00 AM
Congratulations! But honestly I think it really doesn't matter what the HAM is. Mine is 9.3K but it's the fact that I have one and I think it is neat they are different color schemes.
Jolee Onasi Wed May 26 2004 3:31:00 AM
YES YES YES I FOUND 2 WITH IN 3 hours and tamed them both and I was right silvers have 10k ham
NELAN Tue May 25 2004 10:02:00 PM
am on the chilastra server if anyone has spawn waypoints on this server i would greatly appreciate it!!
Graxo Tue May 25 2004 9:53:00 AM
hi guys...my first post :) im master CH on chimaera server and have been searching for wamp stalkers for about 2 months with no luck....but in the last 4 days ive tamed 2...one silver/white one dark grey both have 9.3k HAM and were found in the usual spot people look SW of keren.it really is just a case of being patient and taking out the single adult spawns..eventually you'll get em.good luck.
Obiak Oleik Tue May 25 2004 3:39:00 AM
Go in the swamp near Moenia, Naboo.
Try a spawn zone of normal Swamp Walker, kill them all and wait for respawn. If you try several times and you're lucky, you can find one baby. Very Very Very Good pet, and very cool, too :D
Jolee Onasi Mon May 24 2004 4:50:00 AM
and plz if your from starside plz send me a tell in game to jolee I need help getting one
Jolee Onasi Mon May 24 2004 4:49:00 AM
and yes my friend had one in his data pad with 10090 ham so in my luck when I get to tame one it will be a ugly ol brown
Jolee Onasi Mon May 24 2004 4:42:00 AM
hmm no not all are silver I saw a brown and a light brown hmm maybe the same color I dont know but the brown had like 9.6k ham and the silvers are 10k
NIMH Sat May 22 2004 9:58:00 PM
Jolee, I believe all Swamp Stalkers are 'silver' but as for the HAM, is this what you saw in the wild or in your datapad after it has been tamed? When you tame it, it's HAM drops, as with most Creatures in the Wild.
Jolee Onasi Sat May 22 2004 9:12:00 PM
Ok ok I am trying to test this more but ok here is what I have found all silver Swamp stalkers have 10k ham form what I saw its only the silver that have 10k
lupowop Sat May 22 2004 11:45:00 AM
I'm going crazy trying to find these! If someone is on the Bria server and you have a verified WP to a spawn of these fellas please try to send it to Lupowop via e-mail. I've been hunting these fellas and only once ran across one adult. i have searched within a 1000M radius of all the provided spawns and nothing, no adults, no babies...nothing...please help!!
Vral Soqui Fri May 21 2004 11:04:00 AM
Grats Wolvy! I have 2 Stalkers and they do make nice pets. Glad I was able to help =)
wolvy68 Fri May 21 2004 9:01:00 AM
YAHOOOO Freaking finally. Got my baby. LOL and I was brave enough to go with no buffs. Got killed once, incapped the second spawn and BAM!! just happened to walk close to spawn point and saw the yellow dot. Even tamed him on the first go around. I have over 10 waypoints and can post em if folks need em. But it's mainly sw of Keren on the large peninsula. Man am I stoked!!! Thanks for all the info and help my friends. God I love this profession. Now if they only fix it up some. :)
Anonymous Thu May 20 2004 3:01:00 PM
Hi again Wolvy. Yes you're exactly right about the spawn cycle. Every time you clear one another spawns within a few minutes at a nearby location. I have my radar set at 256m so I generally see it when it spawns. SW of Keren seems to be the easiest place for me to find SS's as I've killed tons now. As far babies going poof I feel your pain. The very first Mantigrue Screecher lair I ever cleared popped a baby on the 2nd round and it poofed after it aggroed and chased me. I cleared over 50 mission lairs and never saw another one again until I cleared another non mission random lair which spawned one. As for the SS's I had so many waypoints stored I eventually deleted them all because I just learned where to search, although I have seen SS's in the open plains no where near swamps, go figure. Last night I got extremely lucky SW of Keren. I went there because I'm grinding out Bio Engineer and decided to look for some SS's to sample since they have no Vulnerabilities. After about 30 minutes I found one and started sampling it. Well eventually it died and a few more spawned but no babies. I had a healthy amount of samples and after the 4 one died I was crafting templates and a 5th one spawned so I killed it. Well there must have been some sort of spawn loop error because I sat there for 6 hours non stop sample killing Swamp Stalkers every 5 minutes and got literally over 100 HQ SS DNA samples. I watched as Peko Peko and Falumpaset lairs spawned around the SS spawn but it never ended. The SS's kept spawning but not once in 6 hours did a baby spawn. There were many times I had 2-3 SS's spawning on top of each other and killing each other off. They were still spawning when I logged off at midnight. Was a good night of sampling without ever having to really move lol. =)
wolvy68 Thu May 20 2004 1:44:00 AM
Thank you Vral for replying and yeah it helps alot. Well I know there is some type of spawn cycle at work here. Unfortunately not a of solid info on it. I have been lucky to find spawns. Yesterday I was there most of the day and found 5 spawns. I have 6 extra waypoints I have found spawns at and will try to update but mainly I have sighted them sw of Keren on the peninsula. Have had 2 sightings east of Keren near the lake and I have heard one person on the main CH website state he saw them south of moenia but I can't confirm that. I also got lucky on the second spawn I saw and popped a baby. And they do aggro from around 60 meters cuz even though baby was yellow, he lit up my webmaster and was on him like a fat child on candy. I ran around trying to keep my pet following so it wouldn't kill it and it would lose interest. Well it lost interest all right. Enough to go back to spawn point and go POOF (despawn). Ticked me all off. Babies should not go poof. Hard enough they are rare. I have a theory to. When you sight a SS (swmp stalker) It's at a static spawn i believe cuz the SS doesn't roam far from there. Usually within 100-200m of it. Now if you kill the whole spawn, something else pops up within 100-200m of that WP. SS's attack anything nearby. So if you continually keep that one WP clear. You also have a chance to spawn one. Again you would be sitting there for a while but you know the spot they will spawn at instead of driving all around looking for one. Just a theory and probaly usless or I am wrong but I hope anything would help. And thank you again Vral for the info. LOL I usually kill the lones now anyways. Good hide and avian on naboo right now. :)
Vral Soqui Wed May 19 2004 3:09:00 PM
Hiya Wolvy, The strategy that I used isn't going to guarantee a Swamp Stalker every time you clear a lone spawn mob's cycle because the Stalker itself is quite rare. I killed over 30 adults in a period of several weeks of searching and it was probably a month after that I started this technique and found it to work for me. The lone spawn mobs seem to vary quite a bit with each server reset. Some people have gotten lucky in finding a Stalker in one day, others it took weeks. Not sure what else to tell you except that since Stalkers have no lairs the only way they'll spawn is by clearing the place holders that already exist. Hope that helps.
wolvy68 Tue May 18 2004 7:03:00 AM
Vral, I have hunted the past 2 days with the stategy you staed and I have come up with nothing. I am wondering if where there is a waypoint or a lone creature if there is some sort of spawn cycle or table the game goes through for next spawn and lucky enough you got the stalkers. Hehe it's like an urban legend. I still kill lones but not any luck with it. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Larke_Eno Mon May 17 2004 4:27:00 PM
Yes, that looks better. Gonna try and find a pair of tehse this weekend.
NIMH Sun May 16 2004 4:54:00 PM
I'm not entirely sure about it's effectiveness vs. Energy and Kinetic, but that should now display the correct HAM
Hazarstanagge Sun May 16 2004 4:38:00 PM
Tamed a baby today. I was jazzed to add it to my collection of rares, but aside for the resists which are nice, I wansnt too impressed with the Ham. Still a really nice and pretty cat
Larke_Eno Sat May 15 2004 6:50:00 PM
That HAM can NOT be correct. You've given it more than a Bull Rancor... anyone care to fix this?
Jolee Onasi Sat May 15 2004 12:57:00 AM
I made chages because thats what I have been seeing
Anonymous Sat May 15 2004 12:49:00 AM
hmm ok I have this small problem I have killed cat after cat and I want to know when the baby spawns dose it spawn with mama and papa
Larke_Eno Thu May 13 2004 2:13:00 PM
Probably not, these are a little more common than a GPS.
Stalker Thu May 13 2004 7:30:00 AM
do these sell for 5 mill like some of the gps babies.
IRONmonkey Wed May 12 2004 12:21:00 PM
Tamed a baby on my first outing for these. I killed 3 adult spawns before the baby came out. Whew I was expecting another long search for this one, but I guess I got lucky.
kittenpusher Mon May 10 2004 4:06:00 PM
Tamed by baby yesterday morning in the swamps SE of Keren. Ran around the waypoints for a few hours feeling lucky, and a saw 3 spawns. The 2nd supplied a baby. The adults WILL aggro anything in range and not maskscent(ed) when they pop, so make sure you have a pet out or a dumb TK mate to distract... Good luck to anyone looking.
kittenpusher Sat May 8 2004 4:36:00 PM
Vral's 'lone spawn cycle' eradication technique seems to work... All the adult Stalkers I found spawned Peko Peko's, Rogue Fambaas and similar :)
Nytar Tue May 4 2004 10:21:00 AM
I live just East of Moenia and my house is right on top of Swamp Stalker spawn spot. I see them often and I kill them whenever I see them, but never seen a baby spawn. Maybe SW of Karen is THE spot as I see all of you guys tame one there.
Vral Soqui Fri Apr 30 2004 11:39:00 AM
I have 2 Swamp Stalkers now (would have had 3 but I had a double spawn of Stalkers in the same area and an adult killed the nearby baby as soon as it spawn grr). Tamed them both in the swamps SW of Keren. They're basically triggered by consistantly killing off all of the random one spawn mobs 4 times or so like Rogue Fambaas, Narglatches, Peko Pekos etc. Any time you see a lone spawn mob there's a good chance that by killing off it's entire spawn cycle that a Swamp Stalker could respawn as it's replacement. That's been my experience at least. I wish these cats didn't attack the first thing they see like GPS's do when you call them lol. Hope that helps and good luck!
Tyracca Thu Apr 29 2004 10:17:00 PM
Tamed fist Swamp Stalker SW of Keren. This was my first try looking for them. Killed two adults before baby spawned.
Vral Soqui Fri Apr 23 2004 6:29:00 PM
Well I guess posting about it was the luck I needed. Tamed a baby tonight in the swamps SW of Keren. Baby spawned after killing 3 adults =)
Saphena Fri Apr 23 2004 3:24:00 PM
I've tamed 2 swamp stalker babies SW of Keren. Both times the third spawn was the baby. I think I killed about 6 adults before getting a baby. Took me over 2 months to get a GPS baby though :)
Vral Soqui Fri Apr 23 2004 11:59:00 AM
I've killed over 30 Swamp Stalker adults, mostly in the swamps SW of Keren, but have yet to find a baby. I found and tamed a Great Plains Stalker in less time than finding a baby of this mob. Perhaps I've just been unlucky. Just curious to those that have tamed one, how many adults did you kill before you happened upon a baby?
Silencio Fri Mar 12 2004 7:38:00 AM
Wow, this looks like a beauty! Right now I have a greater sludge panther, which I love to death. I'd like to stay with cats eventhough I have a Graul Mauler. Looks like I'll be on Naboo a lot :)
Abraham Wed Mar 10 2004 6:02:00 AM
I have 2 of these beautiful cats. First i found all the way in SW corner of naboo, the second i found in the swamps SW of keren. I love pulling them out whjen someone has called his gurrcat. oversize gurrcat:P
MANGOG Thu Mar 4 2004 2:44:00 PM
Yup, I saw one around Moena last night 3/3/04 and it was alone no lairs around. I circled him a couple of times just to look at his HAM....I think it was 10k as opposed to high 9k. I guess the stats on the beasts can vary to a certain degree.
Ameu Mon Feb 23 2004 10:44:00 AM
I've tamed one of these babies, had a chance at another baby but it aggroed my pet from 65m away lol. Found them both around Moenia
chibi dw Sun Feb 22 2004 1:34:00 PM
updated for more accurate ham listing based on baby data, sighting location, and bone type.
Diakonov Mon Feb 2 2004 2:46:00 AM
I've seen these commonly spawn down in the marsh areas south of Moenia
