spawning him

Spawning him - I dont know about all the bugs and or unusual spawn times BUT : It used to be, you could go into the cave, and pull 2 minos from the cave. If you dragged them all the way accross that field of yard trash, there is a tree there. It used to be you could kill the 2 at that very spot. I witnessed a guy do it over and over. It might be because he killed 2 in a short time, but doing it any other way did not spawn the hero, only killing 2 in that spot spawned him. He would even appear right there.

Its funny, in 4+ years they actually change very little, but this spawn always seems tinkered with.

lol if you ever want to know where to get them, i have found a vendor on Cazic Thule and Tunare servers that sell them for about 9pp with about 90 cha, and i can keep buying them, but not at the same time since they are lore, if you want to know where to get them easily without doing the quest, the weapons merchant in south qeynos' warrior guild, something of pain or such, he is on the lower floor

Thats because someone doing the quest sells them to him. I thought that stopped back when they lowered the spawn rate of the hero.

He spawns OUTSIDE the minotaur cave, near the big upturned gear. However, he only spawns "in time of great need to the minotars" so go in the cave, and clear it several times, and if you are lucky, he will pop. It really helps to be a tracking class, or bring one with you.

He used to spawn pretty quick, but that led to people using the quest to get exp, so they nerfed it.

Actually, the fast spawning Minotaur Hero was a bug. The many people using the quest for easy exp just brought the bug to SOE's attention. While he has never been a particularly rare spawn (1 every 30 minutes to an hour, if someone is killing minotaurs), during the time he was bugged, he was a guaranteed spawn after the death of a minotaur. It took all of about a minute to spawn the hero during that time.

The hero will spawn if you kill the undead outside the cave, I have done this myself to get it, it works. ..Of course clearing the cave is still fun, but you don't have to.

My Ogre SK sold these today for 100pp. He does not need the 10 Str as much as he needs int.

My Ranger though, swears by these. Rangers could use Str (especially wood elves) so the Hero Bracer/Ivy Bracer combo works for him until I get a better dex bracer to replace the ivy, either the Bracer of Scavenging or the Rust Encrusted Wristguard (when I see a good deal).

Well I've been doing this quest since 30 with my mage (we love you KEI!) and since the last patch there's a new spawn time on the hero. It used to be kill the place holders (could be any slaver or a slaver in the mino cave or the other mino camp, or the runner outside the the newbie crater) and he would pop, but now the slavers don't seem to spawn untill enough time has gone by, haven't timed it yet myself but masicly this quest can't be used to farm EXP at rediculus rates any more (went from 43 to 44 with my mage including zonign and summongin and sharing spawns in 2 and a half hours played time... boring but you can't beat the exp) which angers me but it was good while it lasted, and hey I have a reason to lvl normaly now since I can't 'cheat' hehe

spawn rate on hero
# Mar 07 2003 at 2:28 PM Rating: Decent
71 posts
Just did this quest last nite with some guildies - the Hero is, at least most times, spawned by killing the slavers. I indeed saw three Heros spawn one right after the other on multiple occasions - another guild was also running the hero quest - I'm guessing that in 2 hours about 30 Heros went down - and I'm not looney, as I turned in enough shackles to hum through 58% of a level and ding 49. As a 48 Human Warrior, I was getting 7% xp per turn in. There were a couple times when the placeholders were killed off and the Hero didn't spawn, but I don't think more than 10 minutes went by without a Hero. And I was getting Druid ports back to SF, so I was never out of zone more than 10 minutes. Hope this helps.

You're probably going to find this hard to believe but these are now ground spawn in PoK near the Qeynos stone. Running along and saw a "bag" on the ground, picked it up and it was a Hero Bracer. A couple minutes later and another one showed up....believe it or not. Terris Thule by the way.

LOL - if you had said Xev, then I'd say that it was me - the bracers sell back for a massive 1 plat each and I felt like I was ripping people off charging anything more than a SOW for one, so I'd just dump the old one before I popped down to Qeynos.
Skunks have feelings too.

I remember this day. Someone was dropping them on the ground so anyone could pick them up. They don't sell back to merchants for much, so why not let some lowbie have them for free if your feeling generous.

If you're over level 24 and you have your "Ring of Steamfont" spell, I'd advise clicking it once in a while and then checking out the merchant Crisyn by the druid circle. The last 7 times I've done this on Kane Bayle server there were Hero Bracers on the merchant 4 of the times, and on all but one occasion there was more than the one I bought. So for a little mana, cast Ring of Steamfont, buy a HB for 15pp, cast Ring of Nexus, go into the bazaar, sell it cheaper than everyone else (usually 39 or 49pp does the trick), rinse and repeat. Woot! Free plat!

I don't know how or why, but I found these on a Merchant in Qeyons just now. Paid 28pp for it and was then worried that I paid too much (being a begineer) and came to check here!
His buy back price was 6gp.
Glad I got a good buy in any case.

He's right that peeps do this quest for the exp you can get. I was near the windmills looking for rogue clockworks for servos for my trushot when i get a tell asking if the hero was up check track and sure enough he was. A few mins. later i get another tell asking if i wanted hero bracers and you know i ran to meet him and get em. Told me that he'd rather give em to someone who could use them rather than sell them to a merchant. Can't wait till i gain a couple more lvls to do this quest if the exp is that good.

There is a good reason why you would find them on a merchant in Qeynos. The quest turn-in is in Qeynos, and the bracers are lore, so you can only have one at a time.

What happens is, many people will do the quest for experience, rather than the bracer. At level 32, when my druid started doing this quest, I got one yellow of experience, between killing the minotaur hero (about 1 blue), and turning in the shackle (4 blues). Needless to say, with experience like that, you want to turn them in as fast as possible. With high charisma, the merchant pays 1pp for the bracer, and 3+pp for the mino axe that the hero drops. If they sell them to an out of the way, rarely used merchant, they can always come back later, and buy it back to resell. Unlike players, merchants can hold unlimited numbers of lore items.

Personally, I prefer to port to nexus, zone to bazaar, and sell the bracer as quick as possible, but if fast exp is your goal, selling to a merchant can save time.

BTW, lvl 43 now, and still get 2.5 blues for each time I do the quest.

My lvl 14 Woodelf ranger found this item on a mino that an uper lvl character let me loot. I think it might be no drop so I cant give it to my ogre warrior. So what should I do with it? Do I sell it at the bazzarr or try to do the Escaped catman quest? Can a lvl 14 do the rest of the quest (which involves killing the named catperson)? And if so how is the exp for a lvl 14?

I am quite confused. I am a lvl 49 wood elf ranger who is trying this quest. I succesfully got the key from Momala and also got the shackles from the Mino hero. When I gave them to Grahan, he gave them back claiming he did not need them. Now my faction is already amiable to so I was quite confused. I check here and realize doing the Steel Warrior Initiation might help. So I do that quest. Then I try giving Grahan the shackles again he says "We have nothing against you but you have not proofed your worth yet". Why does he say this? I have had amiable faction from the beginning.
# Aug 20 2002 at 11:24 PM Rating: Default

Forget all that running around. I was indifferent to the Steel Warriors, so I did the initiation quest once. Although now amiable, he still would not talk about the Hero Bracer quest. Rather than doing other quests, I just did the beginning of initiation quest over and over. Grab about 30 bat wings and 30 snake scales, and get the bag and combine 5 of each, and just keep destroying the letter he gives you, and get another bag. You can keep repeating while standing in front of him. Every time you hand in combined bag you get faction. I got enough after 3 combines to do the quest, you might have to do more if you did not do the whole quest to start with.

Just want to post this so other peeps know....

I have killed many gnolls that I was able to obtain 189 fangs. I turned them into the lady NPC in the Pit of Doom in Halas and got faction with the steel warriors. Remember you have to turn in THREE fangs at a time to get it to tigger.

Went back to South Qeynos and they all con indifferent. Dammit! I was ******* So I logged and when I relog the next day. They all conned Amiable. GO FIGURE. Looks like zoning really does not change anything. If you are in a similiar situation try camping out and logging back in in about 30min and see if that helps.

Just finished this quest the other day...these make a nice upgrade from the Bracer of Erollisi that I had been wearing. As a Wood Elf, I need all the str I can get! Will probably do the quest again, change out my Ivy Etched bracer as well!

Just noticed this is listed as Lore...didn't notice that on my char...will check and update.

RATS! Yes, this IS a lore item <sigh> so much for farming them for cash! LOL

RE: Nice upgrade
# Nov 04 2002 at 9:26 AM Rating: Decent

You can definitely farm these for cash. Very easily. Having the PoP expansion makes it much easier, since there is a portal in Ak'Anon and Qeynos, and they are pretty close together in the PoK. After you get the bracer, just head to the Nexus and sell it. I got 150 for them pretty easy. They were going for 400 in the bazaar, but I wanted to unload them quickly. Then, back to the PoK and then finally Ak'Anon again for another shackles, and repeat.

I ran the Wolves of the North Elixir quest repeatedly for 2 days, (gated back to Halas just before giving it to Megan, and started the quest again) My faction is now high amiable and i have done the hero bracers with no problem. With SoW and gate, you can do this quest multiple times in the course of an hour, with a SW faction hit (positive) every time you give the elixir to a guard and when you return the empty vial. I hope this helps someone get this excellent item.

Had the same trouble as a human ranger of Karana - unfortunately most of the quests that produce decent faction with the Steel Warriors require that you be amiable to begin with. Rather than turn in hundreds of gnoll fangs in Halas, I did the good version of The Clothspinner Sisters 5 times to get to amiable, then the Steel Warrior Initiation quest several times to bring the faction to high amiable, at which point I could do the second part of the Hero Bracer quest.

Iksar cannot wear this bracer. They could for a short while, but according to a patch that was a mistake. Same thing happened with the Giant Femur (I was happy when my BST could use it for the short time he did) and a few other items.

I feel the pain. A person in my guild is constantly unhappy (and expresses this in guild chat) about the 10STR he no longer has in bracer slot.

I've killed about 15 Minota Hero for 6 hours but never seen Mino Shackle.
Does any1 think my faction affect Mino Hero not droping the shackle? or Should I 'start' this quest from the NPC?
If these are not the case, It seems this quest is patched. and no more Shackle drop from Mino Hero?
RE: Mino Hero Shackle does not come out!
# Apr 05 2002 at 4:53 PM Rating: Decent
He drops the shackles every time, and is lvl 35, so blue to a 45, so trivial loot code would not apply.

Dude, you're not killing the Hero, you're killing something else. He doesn't spawn 15 times in 6 hours.

That would put it at 1 hero for every 3 ish PHers. (PH spawn time, 7 minutes) Can you imagine how many dead noobies there'd be if he showed up every time that first mino was killed 3 times?

We were in the area and found the hero was on rack so we killed him. with the body on the ground I found him on track again and we killed him. Checking again I found him back again! after the 3 pop in 5 minute he didnt pop again. each time he poped behind the big gear by the caves. I have camped him for hours before and nothing so i guess my luck balenced.

I doubt that your problem is faction. The first time I did this quest I got the shackle first as I was already in Steamfont. I went back to Qeynos and worked for days to get my faction up (gnoll fangs to the warrior guild in Halas, Orc belts to Cain Darkmoore in Freeport, and finally the steel warriors initiation quest). My faction with the steel warriors was really poor, but I was able to get the first shackle anyways.

The first two times I did the quest the hero spawned within 20 minutes. The last two times, however, it has been 3 to 4 hours before he spawns.

The minotaur lord on the otherhand re-spawns almost immediately after you kill him. He drops a mino axe and a Lore, No Drop Horn.

Are you sure it was the mino hero, 15 in 6 hours is a heck of a lot. I was helping with a camp on monday, and each time he spawned we got the shackle. He spawned three times in about 4 hours.

I am thinking about the reasons like these
1. my faction of Quynos and QuestNpc is too low
2. My level is over the level cap of the Mino Hero
3. Verant Patched this Quest
4. Suck!

Can u tell me your server, level, and faction with Quynos and QuestNpc?

I've killed him 3 times myself and been in a group that's killed him twice and he's ALWAYS dropped the shackles, and usually a few more items (Axe, other vendor junk). He's easily soloable by a well equipped ranger at level 35 - 36, snare kited with about 50 5dmg 150 range arrows (Trueshot bow, of course) and then tanked him the rest of the way (lammy and centi LS) fell rather easily, took about 10 mins.

Dream on, you did not kill Mino Hero 15 times in 6 hours. That was some other mob. Hero drops shackles EVERY time you kill him, always. As for the spawn of Hero, then I have got lucky only once during all my EQ time with a fast spawn of Hero: basically I went to the cave, killed PH and Hero immediately popped out! Talk about luck.. Otherwise one is lucky to get him to spawn in 2-3 hours. 15 times in 6 hours is fairytale.

EDIT: you may be mixing him up with Minotaur Lord perhaps, who is a fairly common spawn and doesn't drop really anything at all. They have the same look as well, simply different spawn points.

Obviously you do not know what YOU are talking about. I was sitting in front of the cave giving a friend a PL when this guy spawned, killed him got the shackle, 15 mins later he popped again, so yes, I can see this guy getting it 15 times in 6 hours.
RE: Mino Hero Shackle does not come out!
# Jan 28 2002 at 11:58 PM Rating: Default
15 Heroes in 6 hours is an insane amount! Most people (like myself, when I did the camp) spend up to 6 hours just to see him once!

I've been in on 4 kills, and soloed him once personally... every time, he dropped the shackles.

Is SZ a "Trivial Loot" server? I thought only FV was now. If it is, then if you're seeing the "This combat was trivial" or whatever message it is, then you may as well go do something else.

Actually if you take into consideration the armors (formerly monk only armors can be worn by them, and they are only leather based) and skills (many hand to hand weapons are monk/bst only) they are more of a monk/shaman hybrid, not a warrior/shaman hybrid.

I have since completed the quest, and even though it doesn't say BST can use above, I assure you that they can. This was the easiest quest in the world, took me 30mins, and the hero popped on my second slaver kill. Will do it again tomorrow for a friend......maybe.

Does Hi-Lo Amiable matter?

Does it matter how hi or low amiamble you are? I'm now hated by the FP gaurds, except NFP gaurds love me hehe. I've been indifferent for quite sometime turning in DF belts and militia helms
But whats this milk thing I read about is that just plain milk you buy at a merchant and that 100 milks is that 100 stacks or 5 stacks of milk (5 stacks = 100 milk seperate if that was confusing) or are they milks dropped from somewhere and who do i turn them into? btw I'm not sure how much faction dorn gives in NRo but he is painfully slow spawn just for faction purposes. I found camping him and playing /gem can get very addicting :P

I think it does, once I hit Aimable I said "second escaped gladiator" and he said I wasnt ready yet. I tried doing the kobold pelt qeust a couple times and it didnt help much. So i started the Steelwarrios Initiation Quest and after I finished and got the factions quests I was finally able to get a responce for the second part of the quest and i did it with no problem.

The best way i found to increase faction with steel warriors is the death fist belts. But when you get a bunch give some to the freeport miltia captain that way you will remain at that con tothem. I have always been apprehensive to them and truned in over 25 to the steel warriors and turned in like 5 to the milita captain. Still apprehensive. And am ambiable to steel warriors.. I tried the gnoll teeth no way too long .took like an hour of killing orcs to go from indifferent to ambiable

Here is what I found out doing this quest. First of all, the Steel Warrior initiation quest may be either broken, or may be warrior-only, because I was not able to finish it with my druid. I did get the key from Nomala (the faction hit is actually Prexuz) and I returned it. My faction with Steel Warriors is high amiable -- low amiable was still not enough to get the second part of the quest. Gnoll teeth are ridiculously slow for raising Steel Warrior faction -- I got discouraged after handing in over 80, but got good Wolves of the North faction as a side result. Instead, I handed in a few hundred milks to Hojax in WC and about 20 or so DF belts to Cain Darkmoore. If I do this quest enough times, I suppose I could be KOS in Freeport, but my Corrupt Qeynos Guard faction is already threatening as it is. With wolf form, though, I am dubious to them as well. I have completed this quest three times, and I've never waited more than an hour for the Hero to spawn.

I am not sure about druids, but I was able to do the Steel Warriors initiation quest as a Ranger. I had to get my faction up quite a bit though before I could get this quest. Turned in 320 gnoll teeth to the Halas warrior guild. Then had to turn in about 10 df belts to Cain Darkmoore in freeport. Then I could finally get the steel warriors initiation quest. After that I had all the faction I needed for the Hero Bracer quest.

I just completed the Hero Bracer quest last night. I wanted to get my faction of the Steel Warriors to amiable, but did not want to take faction hits. I decided to collect gnoll teeth exclusively. I turned in groups of 60, 80, or 100 teeth to the halas areana lady until I recieved the quest in Qeynos. I turned in a total of 580 teeth! For those who are doing it this way, be prepared to spend several full days of killing gnolls. I estimate I've killed over 2000 gnolls. Very agrovating process, but the reward is sweet. Good luck!

The very first time I killed her, she dropped the key. I have killed her up near 10 times now, and she has yet to drop it again. I need it to give to Grahan again. Since I messed up, and he kept the key. But she is getting discouraging....

# Sep 25 2001 at 6:11 PM Rating: Decent
I cant remember my faction, but anyway, he talks to me, tells me what I need to do, talking about the 7th key or something.
So, off to get the key. When I return, I give him the key, and the only thing he says (after I rehailed him) was my head would look good in the Warrior Guild Hall. I am afraid to hand over the shackles, since those were a pain to obtain.
Are you supposed to give both the key and shackles to him at the same time? I did not read it like that.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 15 2001 at 7:45 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I have one and sure do enjoy the finer things in EQ life. Quest was boring if you ask me. sit for 2 hrs killing slayer at entrance who are green to me waitin for hero to spawn. hero spawns and drops dead. dropped minitar axe sells for bout 2 plat and shackles. didnt do faction part cause my friend already did faction part. I gave shackles to him and he made trade at qeynos. I have since then considered selling it and doing quest again. had offer of 1100. when was last time u made 1100 plat off 2 hr quest at lvl 30?
RE: The Finer Things

Plus, how can you make 1100pp in 2 hours, as you need to camp for 2 hours, kill the mino (30 secs to 15 minutes, depends of your class and level), run to the other side of the world (that is 15 or 16 zones away, with a 20-30 minutes boat trip in between = I would estimate a total of 2 hours if you have sow), give the shackles to get your bracers, then get back to the auctions-zone of your server (add 30 to 40 minutes if your zone is in EC or Freeport) and finally wait 2 hours that someone wants to buy this for not 1100pp, but 800pp, because the price droped ?!?

All in all, let's face it, if you are not a Porter or have not a very good porter friend, this quest is not a better money-maker than mindlessly killing giants in Rathe Mountains.

Basically, if you are standing in the entrance to the Mino mines, facing inside the tunnels, the Hero will appear directly behind you across the valley (you can see him from the entrance itself)
I managed to get him to spawn approx every two hours by constantly kiling the Mino slavers...

His only ph is the first mino slaver inside by the cave entrance. And for some reason, I found him back behind the giant cog thing, maybe he agroed some stuff? oh well, was a pretty tough solo.

I have a barbarian warrior on Cazic-Thule and have suggestions for completing this quest. Don't bother with the gnoll fang quest, takes too long. I went and found Mojax Hikspin in West Commons by the lake. Unfortunately my faction was too poor to even give him milk. So, I slaughtered every orc and deathfist pawn in sight until my faction with Mojax went above indifferent. I then gave him about 200 milks in 4 stacks of 4, or 16 at a time. Upon returning to Qeynos I found Grahan Rothgar below the arena and asked him "what second escaped gladiator?" He responded so I gave him the shackles and BOOM, the Hero Bracer was mine :)

At lvl 24 the Qeynos gaurds regard me as there ally. I'm not joking that is what they con to me. All I have done is fight in BB when i was lvl 7 to lvl 13 and everytime I run through WK I kill those stupid bandits which gives great faction and I also turn in their sashes to the guy at the Paladin guild in South Qeynos. My faction is higher than kindly considers you so quests in Qeynos shouldn't be hard. Does anyone know if this is the highest faction you can obtain or is there an even higher faction? As soon as I'm high enough lvl to camp the hero I will have these bad boys.

On this quest it does not matter what the Guards regard you as. Im a ally too and it doesn't make one difference. If i where you i would do catman quest then go to Toxx and go to Warrens. Do the pelt quest about 7 times and you will have good enough fraction to do quest. Steel Warriors Fractiong Is differetnt then Qeynos Guards.

#Anonymous, Posted: May 26 2001 at 5:09 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Well i think the best way to get the hero bracer is to buy it from another player. Its to much of a pain in the rear for such a cheap item. The whole KOS thing is BS so what I recomend to all is go camp the GBS if your a n00b, kill high lvl mobs for cash if your not, or go camp a easier less time consuming item and sell/trade for hero. Cuz being KOS is lame and a hassle and its already hard enough to keep good faction on a PvP server :P

Wood elf ranger here.. Apprehensive to all of Qeynos when starting. Short approximate #'s here.. 6-Clothspinner runs ; 38 gnoll teeth to Halas ; killed dorn in nro about 14 times ;Dvinn about 4 times ; lenka's pouch FP docks 3 times ; 100 milks after i checked faction(indifferent still).. After turning in the milks(one stack of 4 or 4 each only) then checked faction again and finally amiable.. Asked Grahan "what escaped catman".. he gave me the catman quest.. (i didnt do that one)..then asked grahan"what second escaped gladiator"(not enough faction yet) went up to Brin on balcony.. "i am a young steel warrior" he gave me the pouch for the initiation quest finally.. Did that, then asked grahan"what second escaped gladiator" Bingo.. told me where to find the shackles.. gave him shackle.. Very cool Good luck all took me about a week to get my faction up.. As for the CorruptQeynos guards and FP militia..... Tonight i am goin to turn in about 20 scalps for gnoll/orc scalp quests in highpass.... Both of those quests are + the above 2 and no neg hits to our friends.then check my faction at the tollbooth(i believe those are militia? and the gates and such around fp.. should be fine. ;)

# May 21 2001 at 5:52 PM Rating: Default
=) works for me. I am already KOS to them. Had a little to much fun in WC during oh lvl 38+ Still kill them every chance I get too. The plus side of being KOS by the Militia is that the North Freeport Guards will Love you.
How i got it....

WARNING: if you do the quest this way you WILL be KOS to the Freeport Militia ((ON YER OWN RISK))
1.i did not have good enough faction to do the quest. but it was easy to raise it. there is a man behind the inn near the lake named Mojax Hikspin if you give him 4 milks at a time (i stacked mine) you will get faction with a few peeps +Steel Warriors -Freeport Militia. I gave him at least 1000 milks
2.when you have enough faction go kill the mino hero and take the shackles(no drop) it was easy for me because a friend in my guild was helping me out.
3.take the shackles to the dude down in the basement of the warrior guild in qeynos (Graham)

CONGRATZ, you are now the owner of a brand new hero bracer and tha Freeport Militia wants yer head, hope you know how to get trew the tunnles, carefull o' those necros n' stuff

althou i am a halfling warrior and can't wear this it is great to sell, i sold mine fer 1000pp.

Ok here comes a walkthrough to complete the quest.

1. You have to talk to Graham Rothkar (sp) in Qeynos Arena. Hail him and he will tell you a story about a escaped catman. Ask him "what about the other escaped gladiator" if you have enough faction he might give you the Hero Bracer quest immidiatly, I dont know. Anyway you have to be high amiably to get the quest. To raise faction you can kill gnolls in BB (Blackburrow) and take the fangs that they drop. Give those fangs 3 at a time to Lysbith in the Halas pit (warrior guild).

2. When you have enough faction you go and camp the Minotaur Hero in Steamfont mountains. He is a triggered random spawn and might spawn if you kill the first mino slave in the cave. The one that spawns nearest the caves entrance. Once that slave spawns you just kill him (lvl 12-15) and then run out from the cave and across the valley to the other side. Once you get there you will find two trees where the Mino Hero will spawn. When he does kick his lame *** **** (lvl 35 warr) and get the shackles (no drop).

3. Get your *** to Qeynos and give Graham the shackles when you know you will be given the quest. Hail him and ask "what about the other escaped gladiator" then you will know.

Congrats you have just been rewarded with a Hero Bracer AC 9 +10Str +5Dr +5Pr

I collected about 300 gnoll fangs (which I think that I didnt have to) and still didīnt get the quest. I had to do the escaped catman quest first. Thats a easy one =) Go to Kerra Isle and slay Nomala, she will drop a key that you should return to Graham. Dont know if she drops it every time. She did drop it at the first kill for me :)

Ps. The mino slave at the cave has a 6 and a half minute spawn and will attack if you sit close to his spawn loc. Just sit there and watch TV once he spawns you will hear his snoar and that he tries to hit you.
