    I need to collect some Daemon Claws to imbue Demon Slayer on some weapons on a lesser populated shard (there are none for sale). I looked at UOGuide and it says Fire Daemons spawn in some of the mini champs but also in the desert areas of Ter Mur. I didn't realize they spawned here. My char is not quite ready for full scale mini champs yet.

    Is there a good single (or double) fire daemon spawn available in the Ter Mur landmass? If so, can you help me find the location?

    Thanks!

    I believe they spawn in far nw TerMur around the volcano. To be honest, will all the crap that spawns up there I think the mini-champs were easier to farm. Been a while since I've been up north to the volcano, so you might check it out for yourself.

    There is 1 fire daemon that spawns in that cave, but so do ALOT of other creatures including life stealers which are a real pain to deal with. Also the daemon spawns inside the wall area and cannot be reached way too often and the only way to get it out is to page a GM. :(

    The amount of side spawn at the ter-mer lava area make the things a pain to hunt

    I hunt them with a Stealther/Mage by clearing the area left of the entrance to the lava area of side spawn and then draw the fire daemon over that way to kill it using EVs cast from far enough away that I can hide after the cast. If a fire daemon gets off the south edge of the cliff where an EV can't reach it but is still at the same height, cast Protection on your character and just go toe to toe with it using energy bolts. Occasionally they spawn in the grassy area reached by going left before going in the entrance which puts it in a group of lifestealers. There you just need to find the spot farthest from the lifestealers you can find while still able to cast an EV near the fire daemon and just take your lumps. Hunting them in the stone area to the right after going through the entrance from within the mob of side spawn that's normally there is a game of tag you will commonly lose but can be done.

    If your character is human, use the JoaT to cast the Ninjitsu rat animal form on yourself for an extra 20 stealth if needed, before going back to the hunting spot. You can change back to human form so you can cast spells without revealing yourself. The gargoyles have an area heat attack which tends to reveal you and there are certain tiles in the rock area that will do the same. If your stealthing character starts showing damage numbers above it, move a tile or two. The claw drop rate was about 1 in five on Siege.

    Good info... I appreciate it! So there are none in the "desert area" in Ter Mur, just the volcano?

    My advice is not to do this. Go to the Cavern of the Discarded and farm up elven fletchings. You trade an elven fletching + a bamboo flute, I believe, to an NPC near the public soulforge in ter mur and receive back either a daemon claw or the undead skin used for imbuing undead slayer.

    If you want company sometime doing these, holler at me. I tried the other spot by the volcano and pulling away the life stealers, only to find there was one or more up at the top west where the fire daemon was. Kinda pointless to even try the area solo with those dudes hanging around. I used to be able to solo that area (with care) before they added that spawn, but it's ridiculously impossible now with the life stealers. Too bad a useful area's been ruined with quest mobs that almost no one cares about.

    Will do! My guy is on Origin. I've been trying to tease a Tangle from Navrey. Once I succeed in that effort I'm on to collecting daemon claws so I can craft some demon slayers weapons and then move onto the Devourer of Souls Renowned. After the Tangle, I need to work toward a pair of Legs of the Insane Tinker.

    Good luck with that.... it's always been my experience that the dang thing spawns out of reach often and you have to page a GM which can take weeks.

    You can also use low-end runic tools and hope for a Demon slayer mod. 'Tis a long shot but still...

    As for the Life stealers, the quest itself is kinda fun but they shouldĀ“ve been put in a more isolated area. By putting them there, it kinda ruined the spot for farming the other mobs and since that is also the only one where the Fire Demon spawns on land it more or less made the Fire Demon spawn obsolete.

    I've had that happen and wound up waiting for it to time out and respawn. May take a few hours to a couple days. I collected 40+ claws while on Siege.

    those life stealers are anchored as well so even if you do take them away they will bounce back.

    drop myself or Tina Small a line and we can go in with ya to the mini champ spawn on Origin and get ya some of those claws.
    actually...... i might even have some.
