Good spot

I think I may be on to something. After running all over the zone with a druid, I spied a burrower on tracking, it was crawling along bottom of southern scan, close to north wall. After killing it, I left my mage sitting there. Loc is -2160,-1835, again, near north wall, bottom of scar that leads to D/N. While druid kept running around, killing stuff and tracking for burrowers with little success, mage would take out any spawns that went through that spot. The mix included velium hounds, wyverns, but also quite often, burrowers. And it looks like burrowers dropped meat every time. I got pretty much all 4 drops from that spot.

I was working on 2 mages so I needed 8, When I got to the last one I noticed something. If you stick to the east side of the map and kill as much as you can between the cave area south to the SG zi in area. stay between the east coast and the edge of the 2 deep valley's. You will notice they spawn faster and all day long not just at night. The drop is still rare, but the more you see the better youe chances. Hope this helps. Smiley: banghead

Not Good for Tailoring
# Jun 07 2007 at 4:10 PM Rating: Excellent
As far as tailoring goes, these are not good for farming.

First off you have to deal with the spawn rate. There are about three to four of them up max at a time and so you have to kill off velium hounds and bronto's and rhinos as their PH's to get them to spawn.

The drop rate on the silk according to 78 recorded loots on Magelo is 30.77%. Although they drop 2 silks each time its still one swatch per three kills. If you are making the 295 ice silk bracers it takes one swatch per attempt but it also takes a platinum thread and a vial of purified mana which uses the rubies to make. This means that you are still outputting the pp in ingredients even if you farm your own silks for swatches.

So after zoning into WW you get about 1 maybe 2 skillup attempts per clearing and that is with planning on purchasing the ingredients. Its just unpracticle unless you are there for farming the velium hound furs for the Sebilis mask quest anyway, and then plan on paying extra for the ingredients.

Its much easier albeit more boring, to farm othmirs in Cscar for the 295 cloak. You need 4 furs for that combine but it only takes a silver thread and a cheap 20p vial from the bazaar that is always available to buy from somebody. Since you get on average 4-5 furs per clearing of the shore from othmirs you will get that each clearing. PLUS the pp you make from the loots off the othmirs will be a glad help to your tradeskilling budget. This step of tailoring from 260's to 295 will actually make you money as you farm the ingredients instead of the other way around.

[b][/b]Ok, working on my mage 1.5 this is what I did to get the 4 Ice Burrower Meat. From the zone in to Western Wastes, stay on the east wall and kill everything that's not a dragon, drake, wyvern, ie. kill no Claws of Veeshan faction mobs. Stay on the eastern wall and move from zone in to the northeast corner killing as you go. It seemed to me that they were spawning mostly at night time in game. I got the 4 meat in about 3-4hrs. Hope this helps...

ok if you want a good DC pet here what we do. find a pet root it and dot it 2 or 3 times . then DC it and buff it and hael . So your DC spell is the close to the last buff.. then have pet sit somewhere close by and scare an Ice borrow and bee dot and your fire dot and now get your pet on him then dot more nuke if you like. but if you ran off somwhere far he'll try to kill pet.. so stay close dont get hit .. have fun

Dire Charme can be dispelled and the Ice Burrowers proce a AE dispell, that's normaly what get me killed.
I get to close, the worm proce is dispell, wolfform drops, pet breaks charm, if I'm really lucky i get stunned as well but for the most part I'm just running for my life, not that it helps much...

This worm is easy. My 60 druid was soloing these and other fine animals in WW long before PoP or mana regen(was FT). This zone was made for druids. With ally to COV the dragons ignore you. The worms, rhino, wolf, mammoth, are all fair game.

The worm can be snared after a nice magic debuff. Druids have all this stuff for animals. Its called Charm Kiting. A lost art with all the twink mana gear, skill has left the game. So here's the quick rundown, charm an animal like mammoth. Park your pet. Debuff worm and snare. Dot the worm a couple times til you are near 80% on its health. Send in your pet. Keep your dots running so the worm chases you around. Your pet is bashing and doing damage. You will lose your pet if it gains aggro from worm. This is all done while you are in wolf form naturally. DRUIDS OWN > magicians.

You WISH drood pets could even begin to compare to a mage pet. How dare you even say drood pet & mage pet in the same sentence. I'll tell ya what.....try dueling a mage pet to pet & see who comes out on top.

I'm going to go out on a limb here & say that you've never played a mage. A lvl 60 mage pet fighting any mammoth in said zone would, & I'll use your own words, "....eat that mammoth pet" & still be wanting for seconds. Heck...the DS alone would kill it, to say nothing of all the pet buffs afforded a mage's pet. There is NO comparison pet vs. pet in any arena save a lvl 85 enchanter mezzing a hi lvl pet & even then, the mage pet wins out...EVERYTIME...

We were trying to find banished efreeti by force of some 65+ cleric, 65 war and me 60shammy. (doubt we woulda got it down with that force..)
Anyway, this guy was at zoneline and we figured would kill it. First it dispelled EVERYTHING from warrior, but slow went in easy and he was total wimp since that. Took ages to kill, and rampaged few times.

#PoeticJ, Posted: Jun 23 2005 at 3:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) These and all of the debuffing mobs in Velious are thanks to the sodomites that worked for Verant. The company that ran EQ back in the day. They were petty homosexual programmers that didnt want you to enjoy the game they wanted you aggravated. Part of the reason I quit for 2 years. Sony needs to address this issue by either giving us an immunity to debuffing AA or by removing this ability/reducing the number of times cast by mob. I know Im gonna get slammed for this post but I dont care. The truth is the truth.

Invalid argument. Epics 1.5 and 2.0 are very recent to EQ, these were around way way before. It's a backpedaling attempt to validate a giant grub proccing a dispel. The AE nuke is more than enough without them dispelling.

Went to WW to help a fellow guild member with an epic mob and was so glad I did. Aggroed one right from the ZI but didn't score any meat. Bleh. Without even moving, another walked right past me, aggro and dropped a meat. By the time we found the guild member's mob I killed four others, some right near each other, and got my last pieces.

Still it was wierd that on Terris-Thule they're rare but on Prexus you can't swing a dead cat without hitting one.

I don't have the lvl 66 Air pet (slumming with the lvl 61, sorry) and always seem to have the same result: finally find one after running around for half an hour, tag with buffed pet, blow through most of my mana bar and juuuuust barely kill it or it kills pet. I've got 5.3k mana and FT 10 with Enhanced DD jewelry and mount for medding (no KEI/VoQ). He resists a little too much and does too good of a job of breaking down my pet. He seems to have a very big HP pool and debuffs my pet which makes me wonder if keeping pet buffed is worth it. This punk will not run and will fight to the end. Got him down to 3pct tonight, killed my pet and still went after me! Bah!

My advice is to either use pet CH or Suspend Minion and have second pet ready when first dies. I'm thinking CH pet because it'll take another thirty minutes to find another of these stupid things! This camp is just like the four Torn Pieces in Nejena subquest from epic 1.0. Only worse because you have to chase after moving mobs.

Good hunting and ask any Druids inzone to help you find them.

Even better than getting a druid to help you track is get a druid to help you kill it. Or a necro. These things are simple to kill when you aggro kite them. If they aren't hitting anything then the AE proc and dispell are non-issues. Just takes a bit of time, thats all. You may be able to do it yourself if you have a fast SoW. Just nuke it a few times until it is good and ****** at you before you send in pet. Snare makes this a much safer exercise but it is not absolutely necessary. I'm killing them at 58 so your druid does not even have to be level 65 to be able to help.

56 necro
# Oct 25 2004 at 5:40 PM Rating: Decent
Nearly took one with my 56 necro until the phone rang and I turned too fast. Didn't even have demilich and mana wasn't an issue.

Just pull to DN valley so you have plenty of distance to kite and use rogue pet. I started off by getting dooming on it to slow it down, then stack ignite/splurt/CoC/bond on it and let it get down to about 90-95%, then use pet for a bit. Once splurt fades, back off pet and chain dooming until it lands.

If you are lucky, it can land right off, for me, I had up to 8 resists in a row. Once you get it resnared just stack on the 4 DoTs again/send pet in and just keep wearing it down keeping pet aggro in mind. If you get hit, you are dead, so make wide turns using the valley walls to your advantage.

I am a 58 Ranger on Quellious. I just soloed this guy - pretty much just cuz he surprised me and ****** me off by killing me when i was hunting Velium hounds for the last Coldain Prayer Shawl. Basically, just used kiting tactics. Ran him around in a big ol circle.. going clockwise if it matters.. between the spire right outside of the SG zone in, and the wall shielding DN. Used Snare, my wimpy little dots and of course lots and LOTS of arrows... took me about 2 hours to do it, and make sure you NEVER let him get near ya... 1 hit and I went from 100% down to 18% Health. Just my own experience. :o) Good luck, all.

These are a very nice test of your solo'ing ability as a shaman once Lodi gets too easy.

Good old fashioned toe-to-toe slug fest, make sure puppy is positioned behind and he will avoid the dispel (it is front arc only). Recommend opening with Malo or Malos, once slowed they don't hit too hard and once crippled the dispell proc doesn't go off so often. Use epic-clickie-boots from inventory and acumen (nice fast cast) to re-junk after dispells.

Any shaman with a couple of pieces of ornate and 63+ should have no real problem.

The big thing is to set up your pet so it's BEHIND it, thus nto getting dispelled, and getting the full melee effect.

The dispels are nasty (goodbye pet buffs!) and they have a lot of hp. I saw a 65 bst with 65% slow fight one for several minutes before getting an add and having to run. Maybe he got unlucky. Aggro kiting probably works a lot better but then the % slow isn't an issue.
