I killed a couple of hill cats and there he was. Killed him and then a few more cats while the camp bonus was half decent.... and about three kills later there he was again. I left him up that time in case another warrior needed him.

The location is on the 'shoulder' of the mountain where people take a shortcut across to get from Svasud Faste to Darkness Falls.

ok, i read somwhere that Hrrgyf did not pop up with a name. it only showed as "hill cat". is this true or is it actually named?
# Mar 05 2002 at 4:39 PM Rating: Default
Ok, nevermind, he does pop named. but durring the many hours i spent killing hill cats thinking this i ended up getting the mystical beast eye. can't remember the stats on it but it's nice and i'm still useing it at lvl 18. i finally go frustrated when he didn't pop so i logged and when i came back there he was standing around like a big dolt just waiting for someone to kak him.

Well the Cat Hrrgyf can be found on the Way to Gna Faste (from Mularn), as soon as you arrive the lake and you see a camp to the right, climb the hill on the left. There are many other Hill Cats. Hrrgyf spawns there (not at the highest top,i think its 2/3 on the way to the top)
RE: Hrrgyf
# Mar 06 2002 at 2:29 PM Rating: Default
That's Vindsaul Faste -- or perhaps Svalund Faste -- you're talking about. Gna Faste is down south, in Myrkwood.

Otherwise you're correct.

I have spent an entire day waiting for that cat to spawn and I never did. Kept getting killed by mobs of yellows. Went up the snowy hill on the left side of the lake, accross from the vendo camp. Loc=12261, 26351. Never saw the cat there, lots of others though. If anyone has anymore info, it would be much appreciated.

This is not the named cat quest, Jsut a quest for 'hill cat' teeth. 5 of them. Return with them & then have fun finding Karl
RE: hmm
# Dec 24 2001 at 1:40 PM Rating: Default
OK, so was it obvious that I hadn't talked to Karl when i posted that? ok, Karl is at Loc=17591,49768,5205 Dir=36 :)

From Mularn, he's in front of the second tower to the West. That's the best description I could give.

****, I didnt try to get this quest til Level 19, am I too late to get it?
# Nov 14 2001 at 6:31 PM Rating: Default
I'm the person who couldn't get this quest until level 13. A CSR finally answered my /appeal and she said that in order to get this quest, you must have first completed The Monstorous (sp?) Beast Quest.

I just finished this quest and thought I'd give a few tips.

Thordia is in Jordheim and is the female Dwarf warrior outside the door to a building near the merchant tents [when u zone in from Mularn take a left and go to the merchant tent area]just ask a guard [/where thordia] if u need directions.

Head up to Fort Veldon area or around the lake near Svaste Vaude and kill hill cats till u get the 5 teeth u need.

Viking Karl is in the fort off the road that leads NOT to Fort Veldon but the other way [sorry for the poor description] when leaving from Mularn and is NOT the fort you can see from Mularn but a ways farther along.

Hrrgyf [hill cat]is on the mountainside on the left side of the lake up the slope from the road as you head to Svaste Vaude [Northern Frontier Fort] and is quite easy to find but there is a lot of hill cats around so it pays to be careful. She conned yellow to me at 11th level. I found her in the daytime right away, so is not a night spawn.

The end reward is gloves that give +3 str and dex [cant figure out why dex stats and not quikness stats...???].

Hope that helps someone a bit.

Unable to get quest until level 13
# Nov 09 2001 at 9:52 AM Rating: Default
I was unable to get this quest until level 13, even though I visit Thordia every time I level. I am a dwarf warrior. I still have an appeal into Mythic regarding the fact that I couldn't get this quest at 11. Perhaps they just saw my appeal in the queue (which described the problem) and tweaked something in their database to make it work for me now. However, even though I got the quest, my appeal is still in the queue. So if they did tweak a database for me, then they didn't removed my appeal from the queue.

If you can't get it at level 11, keep trying. If you still can't get it at 13, then you might want to appeal.

I was unable to get the quest from Thordia. /Appeal told me to finish the Travellers Way quest. I did that and finally Thordia coughed up the quest.

If you look at the map that came with the box.
Follow the left(west) road in V.O.M. up(north) and it will curve around a snowy mountain with a lake on the left. To the right on the mountain is the hill cat spawn somewhere in there is the named cat.

Hyrrgyf spawn
# Oct 18 2001 at 1:05 AM Rating: Default
Hyrrgyf spawns on the SW part of the snowy moutain chain by the lake.
# Oct 16 2001 at 12:19 AM Rating: Default
Pretty frustrating running around all those mountains near the lake looking for this named cat. We hunted for him for pretty much an hour and gave up. If you know where he spawns can you be a little more precise on where he spawns at?

Certainly. He spawns quite rapidly on the mountain off of the SW corner of the lake. This is the one that sticks out on a corner almost where the path begins to curve onto the lake itself. Head up into the area there and he should show shortly. I was doing a little solo work against kitties in that area (after doing the quest once myself) and saw him roughly every twenty minutes or so.

As a beserker, along with a healer friend I received this quest from Vik. Hyrrgyf spawns in vale up near lake along the mountains that you follow to the gate. Our reward was 9 silver and some exp for both a beserker and a healer, our warrior friend got the gauntlets.
Hyrrgyf is a named hill cat
# Oct 15 2001 at 1:31 PM Rating: Default
That makes no sense. There is a merchant named Vik on the road from Mularn to Vasudheim (assuming you go west and around, and not through Jordheim) that talked about a giant cat who stole his Yellow Canary book. The cat's name is Hrrgyf, and I found and killed it up top a mountain in the middle of the Vale of Mularn.
