I just found him on Antonius Bale

I took a look for him and found him just west of the bandit camp in the water, conned yellow to my 22 Druid, but I took the chance. He resisted root a couple times but with stinking swarm and some careless lightning I managed to get him.

And he dropped Broons Eye first time. I also noticed that Droon jogged down to his spot from up river, so it does look like killing him spawns Droon
New drop

Dropped his eye today.
First time I have ever seen this item, despite killing him about a thousand times over the past ten years ~

I soloed him at level 15.Kited him with Stinging swarm which did 30 damage a pop.He was red to me and every time stinging swarm hit him,it took away 3% of his health ^^;; The spell hits 9 time before wearing off so I cast it three time and he started running,then I melee'd him to death.He only dropped a rusty sythe and afew gold,but I got mad EXP :D

This may be a silly question, but I was reading a few posts below and they talk about conning 'black' I have been playing this game for 2 years now, and have never heard of a black con. Am I just deprived of information? Can someone please let me in on tha lingo? hehe :)

Well it might be off topic but in the tutoral black also in Monster Missions < fairy mission> the Queens chest cons black.
Hope this helps

If I remember correctly black been the alternative color for a white (or yellow?) con when you played in non-full screen mode in the early days of EQ.
So in full screen he would have conned white, but in the other mode the line appeared on a grey'ish background. That's made them hard to see so SOE used black as an alternative color.

Confirmed, used to have black color on con for even-levelled critters, can't remember what determined if was white or black font...could have been based on pre-dominant color scheme of area?

He is gone!
# Jun 12 2004 at 8:23 PM Rating: Decent
For the last 3 days no one has seen Broon. That means no more Droon or Proon either. I reported it as a bug to Sony. I hope he comes back and didn't get nerfed. :/

As of this moment (June 21, 2004 at 11:30am EDT), he's right in front of me on Antonius Bayle server, so I'd say that if he was ever gone, he's back now.

Was on my 30 Ranger alt wandering around when I saw this guy moving slowly towards the bridge to NK, he conned blue so i gave him a try. Rooted, snared, stacked two dots and commenced the flying arrows. Went OOM pretty quickly so i just kept him snared and shot him with arrows til he was about 30% hp, at which point i ran in and melee'd him down, dropped some light cash and a cyclops eye. He said his big brother Droon and father Proon would get me, logically i took it that i didnt want to stick around to see that happen. Went to NK with a good feeling that i single handedly took down a cyclops.

Once you hit 24 and get some better spells to hold and charm he's a breeze and fun to whomp on I think my top is 1.5 minutes with a pet dog (I can't recall if it was a wolf or what) and that's just waiting for the spells to kick back over to usable. If I feel like a challenge I use a gorge hound since they have a nasty habit of breaking my charm, but I only do that to test my juggling skills.

He's pretty decent some nights if you want easy exp and are pelt/silk farming. I've gotten 2 bubs killing him 3 times in a night... got skrewd the 3rd time, only 3exp ticks but I played with him for 10 minutes. For some reason the faster I kill Broon the more exp I get, wierd.

I killed him about 5 times or so. Had a level 29 firepet. He was dark blue to me. I got him near the ramp from HHP. After the 3rd time killing him he started saying that I was going to get killed by big brother droon and papa proon. Never saw either of them. Reading the other posts it looks like I was lucky and kept him on the HHP side of EK. Apparently the higher level roon family spawns on the NK side of EK.

Method of killing with firepet. First Malise, to pull. Then sick pet on him. Hit him with small nuke,(100 hp or so), so he does not aggro. Heal pet if needed. Hit with small nuke again, (100 hp or so). Heal pet if needed. Then check, if he is down below half finish with a couple of large nukes, (180 hp or better). Be sure to keep pet healed as you do not want to be trying to nuke him while he is hitting on you. With the casting time focus item it is posible to get a nuke in between hits but you better hope you are somewhat lucky.

The only thing I got off this guy was some gold pieces and once a rusty scythe. I may camp him some more as he is a fast spawn. From what I have read I do NOT want to mess with Droon or Proon yet.

I was running from HH to SK when I conned Broon and found him even to my 23 warrior. A asked if anyone wanted to help me take him (I've been ichen to take on some bad MOP, as this is my highest charactor), no one would help. I got my self bond to the gypis camp and decided to just go for it. I lead him back to the bridge hoping for a little backup hitting him with my bow a running. Everyone run like little school girls at the bridge. I died with Broon hp down to one bubble. I showed up at the gypis camp run back to EK suited up and finished him off(He was up to a little over half hp), with more then half my hit pionts left. GREAT FUN TO SOLO A BIG BAD MOB.

Good Hunting

I play many characters, but my newest main is a 23 darkelf necro (WAS 24 /mutters about spawn trains). I was running from runnyeye after a raid, had to go through the gorge and through EK, about to go up the ramp to HHP and saw two people camping at the bottom. A 23 necro and a 23 mage.

About 2 kills later they both left, and having spend the last 3 levels in the lake of ill omen soloing yellows and reds, I decided to try him out. LT blue pet, I pulled him with darkness, put my pet on him, leach, heat blood, heart flutter, fear. Fear took two goes to stick, and he was off my pet and onto me before it stuck (good channelling). He started running up the ramp and fear wore off about 6 steps up the ramp, so I stood back and recast fear, he took off back up the ramp again, leach dropped so I recast that. Fear broke and he was on running hp, so I just left him. Black to me then, easy kill. Probably could have killed from as low as 21, maybe 20 if I was LUCKY. Anyone who says they soloed it as anything other than a SUPERTWINK melee, or uberass caster is lying.

When he died, no other mob spawned, it was Broon every time at the tree a little ways down the valley. HOWEVER, I had chased Broon to the other side of the druid ring with my 23 necro wife. We killed him no problems, and the next thing I know, Proon is beating the living daylights out of both of us, no point running, he was doubling for 120 on a 23 caster, sif we can melee him . . .

DO NOT KILL BROON NEAR THE DRUID RING, only kill near spawn point, otherwise his bigger relatives will get you. I killed Broon 53 times in a row, took me a few hours, good exp, crap loot, but then smart people wait till high levels to loot.

I kill this little bully lvl 21 Druid
He look hard and do around 48 dmg
But for druid he is easy
Just snare him, then lauch everything you have on him, when u are OOM He will have appx 1/4-1/3 left depend on Fizzle and low dmg shot just snare him again, run , med, run, med and attack...
he give me about 1/2 bubble xp.

Another tips is to take a gorge hound for pet, but if befriend turn off, u better run...

try it, he is slow and no big resit to spell

He's wrong, or crazy.

None of the cyclops anywhere have anything to do with the Ranger Epic.

Not directly no. But if luck should so happen, poppa Proon might just spawn on ya while you trying to do the portion of the epic that takes place right next to his spawn spot. Not earth shattering, but an inconvenience, and annoyance, yes. Especially since the agro radius on Droon and Proon is extremely large (much larger than normal cyclops).

I killed Broon yesterday, but let me say it was not easy. I am a lvl 23 druid with very low wis. only around 103. Saw this guy, and i tohught why not try itafter all he only conned black. Boy was i wrong. This was one of the hardest blacks i have ever killed. All i did was snare him and run in front and dot him then he just chased me around. A very good idea is to get him to chase you up the ramp to hph. I have never seen ne thing up there, so chances of getting aggro'd from something else is very slim! Ne way i did this with my stinging swarm spell and got him down to one bubble, which he stil didn't run. I was oom, and i started to meele..yes meele as a druid haha well that would never of ended well, if it wern't for some gaurdian angel that appeared. He was a rogue and just backstabbed him till broon started running. Then we both meeled, nd killed him.....to the rogue, if you see this i say ty again....ne way i am trying to say, he is not an easy black for druids. wait till lvl 24 so we get new dot spell then dot him. cause he has a crapload of hp(takes along time to kill with 10 seconds every tick lol). Not to mention i get better exp with craig spiders, and all he had to loot was money for me. around 2 plat i think. Unless you have a score to settle with him, or he is for a quest dont waste your time and mana. he is a total waste. ty for your time reading this and say hey to me if you see me.

I've been soloing this guy with my level 30 Warrior. Kinda nice actually considering Warriors can usually never solo anything they get decent XP for. But this guy gives nearly 1/4 blue for every kill. With a spwan rate of 6-10 minutes that's not too bad, and I'm always gtg in HP as soon as he re-spawns.

Broon spawns in the ravine alongside the bottom of the ramp to Highpass Hold, next to the second tree at loc (-120,-3675). He immediately starts walking across the plain and ends up in the river near the druid ring. His spawn time is 5:50 after his last death - pretty quick.

He hits for a max of 48 points of damage. He is a little cyclops, about level 23. But I think he agros on players of any level. Being a giant type, he runs almost as fast as Spirit of Wolf. He can drop 5-10 gold, cyclops toes which sell for 5-7 gold, and maybe a rusty weapon. He's not rich like the big giants.

The fight couldn't have gone better, my maximum amount of hit points i can inflict is 50 if i am lucky but my average is 38 to 43, i had full mana and lay on hands, so seeing him con black to me i thought i'd have a go, i started by trying to root him, it didn't work and he began hitting for 48 which wasn't fun, equally i got some hits in and his health gradually began to go down. He was just above half way when i had to use lay on hands. My main fear was that he wouldn't run or i'd get attacked in the back by something unsavoury at the time, i was right by the ramp so it made it more unlikely for anything else to turn up. My health was still going down quicker than his and i still had a lot of mana left even though my rooting attempts kept failing, i managed to get him rotted and so i backed off and wasted all the rest of my mana healing back up as best i could, the root spell soon wore off and he came back this time super annoyed obviously frenzying and i had no other option than to keep fighting him. I relaxed when he turned tail and began to flee, my hits just seemed to go berzerk, i took a screen shot of them cause it is just a long list of 40 hp hits, the satisfaction was great when he went down saying about Droon. His loot was a rusty rapier, about 3pp and cyclops toes not particularly great as regards to the stress it caused but it was the best one to one fight i have had in EQ to date!

i'm a level 21 druid, he conned yellow to me, so i thought "why not?". snare, DOT, sit back and nuke. i have 141 wisdom, and i ran out of mana, all of my nukes were hitting for full damage, he just has a poopload of hitpoints. the kiting couldn't have gone any better, just ran out of mana, that's all. maybe when i hit 24, i'll get a better DOT, that should help. maybe a pet.

druids: don't solo him, at least not at my level.

Yes use a pet I'm a lvl 20 druid and I soloed him(does haveing a gorge hound pet count as soloing?) anyway just gat full mana and full hp's (I had 142 wis so i wouldn't reccomend this if you have less) anyway charm a pet I used gorge hounds every time (griffawns have too much magic resist) anyway charm one and snare broon(yes he cons red snare should work[make SURE it's not droon droon=death at lvl 20]) send your pet in dot broon and nuke off his pants waste ALL your mana nuking ecept about 1 4th of a bub for snares he should be running at you slowly while you pet dishes out dmg to him from behind, because you nuked him so hard he'll just kepp on coming while your pet slowly walks behind him hitting for 20-30 dmg he should fall easaly this way just run around, oh watch out BEEFORE you fight him RESOW AND MAKE SURe YOU ARE NOT ENCUMBERED(I found this out the hard way he runs almost as fast as sow so if your running at normal speed he'll outrun you by FAR anyway soon your pet should deal enough dmg for him to turn don't be afraid to go in and whack with your wep even 1 dmg doesn't hurt also if your pet turns on you during the battle I would say RUN TO ZONE this guy gives pretty good exp soloing but personnally I'd rather group in LOIO oh and even at lvl 20 he NEVER resisted my nukes good idea for druids from 20-23 lvls to solo though at lvl 23 i think I could kite him to death beings at lvl 20 I can bring him within 20% hp useing only nukes.

Good luck on broon everyone!!! (oh loot is REALLY crappy I stoped killing him and went for better things cause I was worried about money)
