OK i have learned this the hard way. Dont ever run away from the human class. They will backstab you even if they dont have a dagger. IM not sure if barbarians do this as well
Easy for enchanters

Well, im (well, was) a 16 enchanter and i could solo a full camp of these VERY easily with about 1/2 mana



1. Charm the weakest one you can find (for lower resistance, female ogres are the best for this)
2. Have them hit you so your pet instantly goes on them and taunts them
3. Nuke the one your pet is NOT attacking
4. once its dead, nuke the one it is
5. once they are all dead, breeze your pet



Note: its easier to pull once charmed because only 2 will spawn

Hope this helps any enchanters wanting an easy way through 16

We were Camping the Derv Camp Yesterday and We looted a Bronze Ulak, Hand to hand, Magical weapon. I didn't see the stats other than it's only for Monks and Beastlords. Must be new? Looked pretty cool.

UGH the amount of usless garbage on some of these posts. Dervs levels can depend greatly on the location they are in. Most dervs like the ones in Northern Desert of Ro (NRO) and in West Commons (WC) Are usually about 12-16 id say. The only thing(s) that makes them difficult are

1. you rarely only fight ONE derv. They agro very easy. The entire group will come down on you. Use harmony or (god forbid, the cleric sooth,calm line). Sure maybe you could kite one or solo one. But HEED my word, its RARE you only get one. sometimes a stragler, but it sucks. And no I dont think a 9 druid could. A 16 barbarian sure, one on one. (I dont really play much of either class thats a guess)

2. They are also nasy because the mobs group really varies, they will have Dervish thugs in front beating on you, while casters near the rear hit you with DD spells. And another heals the mob. They sometimes act just like a party. (try to whipe out healers and casters first, make sure to assist)

3. OFTEN (if not always, anytime i see em) guards will not touch them. Dont ask me why, I guess it has somehting to go with them being an established organized crime gang. Like the Mafia of EQ. You cant run to guards for help.

The loot/xp is actually VERY nice concidering the level you get it. I didnt start seeing Fine Steel drops untill lvl 23 at gnoll spires. And Mid teens in oasis with a cleric sucked alligator eggs. The dervish pendants, rings, bronze weapons and so on sell ok, and are nice for low lvl. Usually you will heva better by 12ish. (if nothing other then someone giving it to you)

I hope that helps give REAL and accurate information.

Dervs are also MANY locations in game. West commons, North ro, oasis, I think in South ro... all over... so depending on where you are KOS or what other surrounding mobs you want, you have a good selection. they make a nice good hunt, and good transition mob when moving up because of variety.

LOOT

This guys drop loot like you wouldn't believe. I've seen assorted jewels, some that sell for as much as 4pp to merchant, anytime you see one carrying a weapon its almost certainly bronze. Nearly every derv carries a cutthroat ring, which is decent for low level but mostly just a good lightweight thing to sell to merchants for 1-2gp. I have also seen jewelry such as gold bands and silver necklaces dropped. Very nice for this level, good experience and great loot.
Just verifying...

These guys drop bronze like you wouldn't believe!!

In the 2.5 hours our group of 3 was at a Derv camp, 11 bronze weapons were dropped. At 2pp per weapon, these guys are worth spending some quality time with ;)

I just hit lvl 9 and the tranas and rattlesnakes iv been hunting to get to lvl nine wernt giving alot of xp so i teamed up with a group of casters that were only one or two lvls higher than me. We had two wizs me and a lvl 10 plus one sk a cleric and a pally and we decided to go to derv camp one. The lvl 10 wiz was given the task of pulling one derv out at a time and every time we got them out one at a time a killed them extremly easy. We found that if you start with the one by the pole and killed that one the moved to the one that spawned at the first tent on the right then took the one to the right of Dorns tent. We did that and in about 45 mins i had almost lvled again. Using this plan and having a good group you can take derv camp one without losing anyone. Even the erudit wizards were easy they droped like flys at our feet.

New Loot
# Jul 11 2001 at 8:17 PM Rating: Default
I recently was camping the dervish cutt throatcamp at lvl 14. I was soloing a derv and took it out pretty easily. I dont usely loot the dervs unless they have a weapon in their hand. But i looted this one and it had a small bronze greaves on it, it wasn't wearing them it just had it on him. Anyways I asked some other people about it and they said they never looted any bronze armor off dervs. I guess I just got lucky.
