Last winter I killed the spectres in the Aqueducts for countless hours and I never saw this guy once.

Now he seems to spawn near the entrance to the secret (evil) area and wanders towards the Spectres. He will stop just short of where the Spectres are sitting.

My guess is this was changed to interupt people (like me) who camp the Spectres for amazing experience in their mid 30s to upper 40s.

In any case, by the time you're high enough to kill Specs this guy will be cake. He spawns every 12 minutes and drops the 2HS. I have sold it for 20pp. So now you can kill specs and make a minimum of 100pp per hour. Not bad!

No, monks don't get 2 attacks more than anyone else does.

Okay, I have seen a level 34 paladin with a wurmslayer solo this guy with no problem (I didn't see what his armor was, but he was a half-elf). Would a level 32 paladin with a Ghoulbane and Mistmoore Crest shield (or even a forlorn naginata) be able to solo him as well? I've been thinking of soloing this guy until I hit 33 or something, just to see how mad I can make these Bloodsabers and Corrupt Guards.

solo for a shaman?

I read on one of the shaman websites this guy was a solo at lvl 30 / 31 for shamen. Is this true and or possible?

i tried to solo him at 32, with no luck. got him to within an inch of his life, but no dice. went back in at 34 with pet, and destroyed him easy. just let pet taunt him, and toss Winter's Roar on him, and soon you have one dead SK. drops a two handed sword that sells for about 15pp, and drops around 3pp and some change. decent xp too.
You wanna whack him at 30?

Heh, you got lots to learn, at 30 he could whack you, you should be like 32 or 33.

I have had my eye opening encounter with this guy as well.. a level 9 warior... he was sitting right inside the zone .. and started whacking me instantly.. I zoned with one step backwards but only had about 10% life left on the other side...

.. I really can't wait to go back there and wax his behind for that... just 18 lvls to go.. heh

... You'd think there should be a warning on the Qeynos Catacobms page about this guy guarding the secret entrance beneath the arena... I wouldn't have tried to get in that way then...

My level 35 wiz (now 37) has killed this guy about 100 times. Good experience (20% bonus in zone). I was KOS to him so no big faction loss except with corrupt guards of qeynos.(Note:Just stay out of North qeynos near Crows; corrupt captain Level 60, south qeynos corrupt guards very easy at this level).

Pulling Argyn is the only difficulty. I rolled up a level 6 agnostic mage to pull argyn to zone by qeynos hidden entrance. Make a pet do a /pet guard here near Argyn. go near south qeynos zone (very close)then command pet to attack. When you see him just back up and zone. He will stand by zone forever. Zone mage back in and make sure he is positioned near zone. It is critical that you do not attack him near his original spawn point (unless you would like real quick experience loss). Camp mage. Bring on your wiz, buff steel skin and your major shield, go to full mana then invis. Make sure you have gate, snare and enstill and your biggest frost and heat spell mem'd. Enter zone. Enstill him, snare (carefull AE snare) then nuke. Hits for 60 plus so back off as far as you can. You may have to use enstill several times. It is critcal that snare tkaes hold otherwise kiss you butt goodby when he walks when near death. if he does walk towards his spawn corridor zone very fast. Good luck. Ohh he drops a 2h sword that sells to vendors for 15 to 20pp. Good luck

What the previous poster fails to mention is WHY you don't want this guy wandering back towards his spawn point. There are 2 caster mobs Chan and Chou Whinstone that are just a little further down the corridor. These guys work great as a team as they chain nuke and they are very social. So if Argyn enters their aggro range, they will running to beat on the fellow that cuased their good pal Argyn so much pain. If they start getting beat on, they will start running towards the spectres that are just a little further down the hall etc. until you finally have a bunch of Evil merchants and trainers on yor behind.
Damuri auctions WTB potion of lag resistance PST.

FOM, you are obviously not pulling fast enough.
quick and painful

This guy is KoS to some of us. My friend and I (erudites, an enc and wiz) got nailed by him bigtime. He screams "Your rotting corpse will warn others to fear the disease of the Bloodsabers!" Right after he killed me (which took about 3 seconds for my lvl 8 enc) At the start of the fight he screamed a bunch of stuff about blashemy and Bertoxxuluos (I follow Quellious)so his anger must be provoked by differences in religious beleifs as well.
Anyway fore warned is fore armed.
Good Hunting.

This guy guards the only dry route (AFAIK) into the catacombs. I've been trying to help a buddy retrieve his corpse from the catacombs for the last couple of hours (!!!) and thought we'd try the back (dry) route. No chance. Aergyn got me instantly
