After a patch, i figured id go and kill the named shardwurm and do this quest for the **** of it. Decided id start a bow collection, no matter how bad the bows were, hehe. Solod the shardwurm np as a 64 ranger. Picked up a Gate potion and headed to Kael.

Attempt 1 at turn in was a failure. I was unable to solo the two see invis giants. Checked tracking and Gleed was not up anyhow (right after patch too.) I came back two days later and Gleed was up. I cleared the whole area near WL zoneline. Rooted one see invis giant, hit innate cammo, and took the other guy to the WL ZL. I was killing away, he summoned me, and at 50% i said **** with it, and rooted, and stepped back. Being the only one in the zone, i just rooted him and ran to see if i could sneak by the other guy and do the turn in. I ended up aggroing the second giant (who i origionally rooted) and the third one at end of tunnel (even when sneaking and ducking and hugging wall). Well, like the first, i pulled back to zoneline with innate cammo up and root / snare parked them at entrance. Ran right past the tunnel and saw a slope with a flagpole on it, and a pond at the bottom. Sneak, crouch down on the slope, and the bow was mine.

Note : after doing turn in i did not draw aggro from invis being down, due to the sneak ability. Depending on your Hp, you should be able to just train them to ZL and root park them if you can not kill the three see invis mobs. He did not despawn, and could probally be killed after doing turn in for a second bow, but i did not verify this.

Gleed CAN be split from his mutt

Our 55 Monk split Gleed from that dog. We had one group. 56 Chanter, 56 War, 55 Monk, 53 Necro, 53 Druid, 56 Cleric.

He did it with about 7 fd's. Gleed sticks around just a LITTLE bit longer than the mutt does if you FD just before the mutt reaches you. So with each FD, the mutt and Gleed got further apart. War tagged, (make SURE you dispell him good!) we bagged. Dropped Flamesong, then Bow.

Fight hard and you'll have more time to rest.

Pacify~ and Gleed info

56 Enchanter or Cleric should've just /assisted the Monk and Pacified the wolf.

Pacify works through walls and floors and is currently not LoS (Line of Sight).

Tried this trick the other day (August 2003) for a Ranger friend who wanted a bow upgrade.

Pacified the see-invis mobs above the wolves, and then pulled singles every time.

4 of us went- and we emerged victorious with his new Bow!

Gleed hits for about 250 and is slowable- we relied on Swarmcaller (Ranger only 2HS) and it did the trick.

Heh- when a 57 ranger can tank Gleed- you know he's a wuss!

Wipeout at Gleed's

OK have to post this as none of the Gleed Dragonhunter killers ever posted this.

We went to go kill Gleed and had a 3 group raid force that was there to do Plate cycle since KD was uncamped except for us at the time we desided to go kill Gleed and grab his bow - It was no problem getting thru to him at all. Killed all the easy giants on the way without a hicup and cleared a few by the see invis line.

Walked the shelf with the dogs on the right side drop off and then killed the 3 blue guards in the way and the undercon green guard jus in front of Gleed. When we pulled Dragonhunter - sure enough we weren't able to split him and his dog - no problem - we had 3 full groups 2 mobs = no problem.

THEN about 1 minute into the fight EVERY DOG from that island rushed us. I mean they WERE WAY WAY WAY out of our aggro area. I mean it was as if getting off of Orc lift in Gfay aggroed the orcs from Orc hill down to Kelethin. That is how far we were from the dogs. regardless - 4 to 5 dogs showed up from no where and wiped us out - only one group got off an evac.

The bottom line is either:
- someone trained us: didn't happen - I happened to be meleeing facing the archway and saw all of the dogs arrive and start smoking folks -sitters first. I saw no rogue element leading them and they are hardly from a main pathway.
- there is a relation ship between his dogs and that pack of dogs in that kennel island thing.
- this could be a new scripted event (doubtful) - but it is surprising NO ONE reported this before.

If you have never killed him before be carefull here. It might behoove your force to wipe the dogs out on your way to prevent the surprise we received.

I doubt it had anything to do with a script. Most likely someone fell in the dog pit, and someone from above healed them. Its happened before. Btw, Gleed is a pushover if you dispell him. Just fyi.

He dropped the bow after we killed him, me, a 57 cleric, now 59, a shammy, forget what lvl and a 60 monk.(with a couple of aa's) He comes along with a dire drakkel wolf wich summons you and hits hard. Don't know if you have to turn anything in anymore but he dropped the bow after we killed him and I lotted it. I love it cause it's so fast :)

bow haste
# May 21 2002 at 7:57 AM Rating: Default
Some guy was talking about haste stacking. I was always told only 1 item, 1 weapon, and 1 buff can be combined for your total haste effect. In otherwords you cannot combine a quivers haste to the haste of your worn item like FBSS or haste gloves. Maybe I am worng, but i had a windsaber, fleeting quiver and enc epic haste and was clicking "ranged attack" more than 1 time every second.

Please tell me how 3 sub level 10 characters got over to velious, crossed several 30+ zones (without invis since none of those you listed get a group invis till later), went into a 40+ zone and killed one giant even if it was a level 5. I have a 21st ranger that wants this weapon so PLEASE tell me.

Wolf Form won't work, because not only do Velious things HATE illusions, but Kael is underground, therefore it can't be cast.

Wolf form (as well as other such illusions) do not help in Velius, they just **** things off. Drops your faction at least 2 lvls (i.e. apprehensive to dorfs with wolf form is now threateningly). If your on giant faction, you turn in quests, if your on dorf faction, you kill the quest giver...

As far as I know, no giants in kael can be mezzed or charmed... can't guarantee it but I'm fairly positive.

Took him out with 59 warrior, 56 wiz, 54 necro.. just feared him most of the time, pull him out to bottom of river and when feared he doesnt even move. easy kill, hits for 128 max. always drops tail.. easy way to find him his run stragith down the river from thurgadin entrance, enter wurm cave then at the exit of the wurm cave hes there.. remember follow river the whole time

The Dragon is not a piece of cake like some of these boso's say. My group was a 51 warrior, 49 wizard, 49 Paladin, 43 Shadow Knight, 49 Wizard...We had one wizard keep him snared while the other nuked and the Pally, SK and I wailed on him but he hits hard...100+ All of the Malee's died because we didn't have a heavy healer, this dragon has a lot of HP's...we had to run back from Thurgadin to finish him off...he's not that easy...I seriously doubt a 49 ranger, 44 enchanter, and a 30 druid killed him....

So, I saw this named wurm on track, and had never heard of him before. He conn'd blue so I thought, what the heck, I will druid kite him. A passing chanter cast C2 on me. I with root, stinging swarm (100dmg dot). Started kiting him. Then a lvl 48 druid from my guild helped. We had him almost dead and he gated. And since a "uber" guild on our server was going to do a ring war, we just let him go.

I did kill him later tho, now if I can only get up the guts to go turn in the bow P.

To comment on u doughting that they coudl have killed him:

Me and another 51 ranger, and a 53 shamy took him down with ease. It took about 3 mins. Ranger pulled the named Wurm out of the cave and got her snared. The shamy slowed, criple, and malsi. Then the rest was all done buy the rangers. Shamy only healed after that. It is true on the Hp's....I would gues between 10-15k hps. Most of the named mobs in GD have that amount anyway. This named wurm is a War class. Highest hit from the wurm was 150.

Hehe. I was a 52 ranger. I found him and pulled him to the back of the zone. Got snare on him, think it took a few tries... proceeded to fight him, with full damage shield and buffs.

He is one tough SoB and kicked my **** good. So I ran away, rooted him, doted him and sat down to med and think about what I'd done.

About this time a lvl 47 ranger found me and offered help. So we grouped up, and when snare broke I kited him around, hitting him with arrows and casting flame lick, to keep aggro on me, while my new found friend beat on it from behind. This was quite effective, although it took a long time.

I could have easily done this with the help of a low lvl enc to buff me, and a low lvl druid to keep aggro and kite it around. Woulda been faster then with lvl 52 and 47 ranger =)

Its all a matter of stratigy =)

Took him out last night. Ranger 49, druid 47, monk 49, and enchanter 57. She was easy but she sure had a lot of hit points. All mana was used to take her out. Monk and I were hasted and had a cleric buff that gave us 2500 hp and 35 more ac than normal. Would we take her out without the Chanter? I would say No haste no Tail! 17,000 hp is about right I would GUESS.

Gleed spawned the other night for us, he was red at 59...hit for around 450. Unless there's another Gleed out there near the Tormax bridge, this guy's been upped (not too surprising since that bow is sorta nice).

Spawned tonight, was even con to lvl 52 Ranger. Bow dropped. We had 2 groups, peeps ranging from 48-57, got Gleed and his little wolf too. Wolf hit harder than Gleed (330's), didn't see what Gleed hit for, he was dead before our group was done with the wolf. :P

hey, yea Bow of the Huntsman was dropped tonight. This dude was blue to me at 55 and hit about 150ish, that wolf was more scarey. Very nice bow, like a **** machine gun.

I saw 2 tonite at same time, from bank you can vere off toward the wolf pits and thru the archway are a few giant npc's above and below. There was one in the room up to the left and One was on the lvl below the slippery bridge. Same npc-- i think hes Kromiff faction. This area is also a good room to check your faction with all giants are 3 different ones in that area.

So where does Gleed spawn? Does he see invis and can someone with bad faction complete the bow quest by just giving him the whip?
RE: Where in Kael Drakkel?
# Feb 28 2001 at 8:47 AM Rating: Decent
If you take a hard left after leaving the bank you will get to him. See the posts for Gleeds Bow for more info on that. Don't think you will be able to do this quest with bad factions. I spent weeks doing faction work and got to indifferent, kindly, and threateningly with the three factions in there. I was amiable with gleed and he would not talk to me--might be I wasn't quite close enough even though I could hail him. I just gave him the tail and I did get the bow though. There are other things very close to him so if you give him the tail and invis/camo leaves and you have bad faction, you will probably be dead.

As with most NPC's

Rangers should be able to use sneak to turn in the whip.

TO check to see if sneak has worked, con any giant on the same faction whialst sneaking, (Camo off)

Do this from a distance.

I would advise anyone doing any of these quests to take a druid with you.

1) so they can sup camo you if needed
2) so they can Evac if you get agroed on.
