DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Kill Spifnar, a named Cruachan Imp above the curm smoker camp and lake, and get a really great sword. (rumored to be at loc=29700 5800)

Simplest explanation to get a crescent reaver is as follows. Go to DL. Head straight out the gate and keep running straight forward until you come across a log.

hang a left, and you will see a lake with some houses on the other side. Swim directly across the lake. Watch out if you have a bad curm faction, because there are some Curm Ratoners in the houses. Behind the houses is a big hill. Run up this hill, and at the top are the imps.

These con yellow and orange to a 35. They are hard yellows, and incredibly hard oranges, so bring a friend or two if you can.

Spifnar spawned for me after about 20 mins of killing place holders.

Kill him.

If you are above 35, then you will automatically receive the crescent reaver in your inventory unless he is grey to you.

He was right where he was supposed to be; I didn't have to wait for him to spawn at all. I was lvl 40 Champ; just trotted out, killed him, got the sword, and trotted back to DL, w/ no unpleasant surprises (like Albs).
The sword is sweet.
Update on location

The location of the Crauch Imps with New Frontiers has changed. When exiting Druim Ligen head North, North West to the first clump of trees. This is just past the range of the realm guards and seems to be a safe place to camp. I spent 3 days about 2 hours each and 30 min into 3rd day Spifnar spawned. Killed him and received sword and a nice bracer. About 30 min later he spawned again, killed him and got another good drop (ring i think). Also the other Imps drop some verry nice items all lvl 36-41 most had + to dex and 2 other stats. At lvl 35 got 1.5 lvl's durring this time. I will be going back there often.

Finally got the sword after about 4 and a half hours camping the spot during which time I doubted my sanity on more than one occasion.

As with any OTD, you have to be able to use the item to get it to drop.

This is a verry nice blade. I'm only trained in large weapons but with the swords +4 to blades and 2.6 speed i was taking out yellows with no problem. It hits so fast mob hardly gets in a hit and proc was hitting for 100 - 150 hits usually one time per fight.
What a waste of time

One day I set off to Cruachan Gorge for the Crescent Reaver. I went to Druim Ligen. I followed the routh and somehow made it to the impies on the hills. I was a level 35 at a time. These imps were yellow and oranges to me. I camped there the whole hour. Then finally Spifnar spawned just in the middle of the other imps. I was happy that it was only yellow to me, I could somehow take yellow. I pulled it with my bow. Then the fight began. While I was fighting it, I saw 3 people came from my rights. As they ran closer to me it was clear that 1 was Avalonian Guardian, another one was Briton Guardian, and the last one was a Highlander Guardian. All of them con purple to me. They killed the spifnar, then they killed me and camped there to make sure noone gets the reaver. ******* ALBION BASTADS.
