I just killed an Elite in Iceclad, one of the bridge guards, & looted a Ring of Frost from it. I see someone else has posted this, but it's not been updated, so, just a little confirmation =)

Oddly, I had a "frost giant scout beard" drop off a Frost Giant Elite in Iceclad this morning. It is a Magic/Lore/No Drop item, reads "ALL/ALL" and weights .5 ... anyone have a clue what this thing is for?

Thanks!

It says there are no faction hits with these giants in Iceclad Ocean, above. They in fact do have faction hits like the others giants, FYI. At least it says they do when i kill em. :P

Just FYI...

As a level 37 shaman, I fought 3 of these things in GD with a good group of guildies and didnt find these things too bad. Every one of the spells I cast stuck which included Tagars Insects and Envenomed Breath (DoT).

Although the pets took a beating, we got agrod by 1 just as we were killing the first and still managed to beat it. Lotta mana used up with heals but the Slows (Tagars) definately helps and seems to stick well.

According to my log parser, the Elites in GD have about 7.5k hp. Our 3 man group of 54sk (me), 49dru and 46rng was able to do a combination of fearkiting and standard tanking to kill them off. The druid would cast ensnare and i would fear it 1 or 2 times, while i and the ranger was whacking the poor sod down.

Soloing Frosties

I soloed a Frost Giant Elite that conned yellow to me on the Iceclad side of the Great Span. I played it safe and LOHd when I got near 1 bub cause he started hitting hard, and ended up with 3/4 HP intact. Used root and healing and to some effect. Was wielding a Massive Dragonclaw Shard. The other Giant at front of bridge was red and didn't react to my pull of the yellow via root. Although he resisted root, with SoW I had plenty of time to get near top of span for the fight. It was kind of epic going toe to toe with a giant atop the span ;)

Quading: First I go round up 3 Bezerkers and 1 elite. hit them with Lighting Blast untill the Bezerkers are dead. Then you should have about 50m left (my wis 200) Root and drop immolate and Drifting Death. and med... once those have dropped I snare, Immolate and use my ES Vambraces to finish him off, Im back to 80m time again for another quad...

This message is concerning the pair that guard the bridge from IC to EW...

Two things:

One: This mob in IC dropped a Ring of Frost (INT +3, Mana +10, LORE) I mention it due to it not being on the list above.

Two: I have yet to see one of these elites as an even at either 44 or 45, so, I can safely say that the IC elites are lower than 44...

What is a snowball for ?
# Jun 30 2002 at 9:06 AM Rating: Default
I looted a magic item (ranged) called a snowball. What on earth is it for ? Only found one in about 6 yellows of bridge Elites.

(btw, the level cap on those seems to be 36, I solo'd them the last 2 yellows of 36, and found 2 whites, and have found no whites in 4.5 bubbles of 37 so far)

(and how is a 36th wiz soloing these ? Koadic's Endless Intellect....no crack like the ultra-crack....)

i know a 36 lvl wizard can do it cuz my 34th lvl wizard is doing it. with out kei (although kei makes it really easy) i use okail's levity and sow. pull with the staff of temperal flux to lower fire resistance. run root, BoF, kite until mana is low, root med, when root breaks stand and root again. eventually (and it does take a long time) he'll go down. ive easily taken down yellows like this.

This was from one of the elites in GD. They are about ten levels higher than the ones in IC and con me dark blue at 51. Be very careful with them.

P.S. The reason most of the damage shows up in one second about 9 seconds after the first hit is because I started going LD when it hit me and didn't come back until 9 seconds later, upon which time I received all the damage messages for the past nice seconds together.

As a 51 warrior with 980 buffed AC (only a 34 shammy as backup) the GD version of these guys were hitting me for max of 128. They also hit me 55 - 60 % of the time. Dk blue con, I was unable to land any spells with the shammy, including magic based slows/malo and disease based nuke/dot. Not for kids!

I would like to confirm that these are much larger than than the IC elites. As a 54 wizard i round up 4 of these with staff of temperate flux.
Atols Spectral shackles did not always get all 4...few resists. However using Pillar of Lightning to quad kite these (828 damage for 364 mana) i would use approximately 90-95% of my mana taking these down with an Itelligence of 221. Definately around 7.5-8k hps and hit hard when they get a chance.

44 Wizard Snare Never Broke
# Jan 15 2002 at 1:27 PM Rating: Default
Just solo'd one at the dragon bridge between ew and ic. The ones on ic side are a piece of cake but suck up the mana.

Resisted bonds of force twice but once it stuck he was toast. 5 x Conflgration for 3030 and one lightening shock to finish him off for another 404. He did pop back to his spawn point too btw.

My guess is that one was about 3200 hp.
Burned about 4 bars of mana.

Dropped 5pp oh well and never laid a hand on me.

I tried to solo one in GD. After taking it down below half health I ran to zone but it got nabbed when i was out of range by a friend hunting Scouts and elites at the fort. The only problems I would have with the thing are
1 Getting snare to stick
2 It is not that it has a HUGE amount of exp but the rate at which it regenerates. Running from it (towards EW)and leaving it on the west side of the fort it was at 1/4 of its life. By time my friend caught it on the east side of the fort it was barely over half health. It was slowed a bit by the snare but The next tiem I actually fought one I watched its health rise back up at about the same speed my mana does with clarity II

I too hunted the frost giant elites in IC for a while. Just remember that the frost giant elites in the GD are a lot tougher than the ones in IC. The ones in the GD have a bunch more hp's and hit slightly harder too.

I'm a lvl 47 druid and I found a neat trick for soloing these guys. Drag them through a few coldain dwarves. Let them follow along for a bit , knocking the giants hp's down then back off before the do too much damage. The elites can do them in pretty quick and you get your giant back minus some hp.

They have been buffed lately, they have more HPs now!!! and hit harder!!! Seen hits as high as 140!!! and as much as 8K hps+!!!! do not and I mean DO NOT try to solo them, you will die!!!

Don't solo these guys in Great Divide unless you have KEI,a T-staff, ES Vambs' or Lumi. OR can do some massive dmg fast and cheap!
Took one down and calculated he had over 8400HPs

Solo'd one last night in GD. Using Root and Rot with ES Vambraces. Funny thing is that he was one of the 4 that I was quadding. (Doh! How did he get in there!) So at the end of the quad with this guy still attacking and I'm at 40% mana, I definitely needed those ES Vams.

I solo the elites in GD at lvl 53 ( not bad exp). pull with your lvl 1 lifesucker, run to pet, cast darkness, cast splurt, fear, ebolt and ignite blood ( plague gets resisted half the time and thus a waste of mana). Jboots or sow potions are a must or the elite will pound you to death before you reach your pet. Always have shield of magi up and always use splurt after darkness ( the 110 from the ebolt will make elite agro on YOU and therefore a pain in the neck to get it off you ****).
RE: easy for necros
# Mar 04 2002 at 10:40 PM Rating: Decent
Playing as a 53rd necro myself, I'd advise you pull with splurt instead of your lvl 1 lifetap. Splurt takes a long time to be affective and has no agro. I always pull with splurt when soloing in skyfire or GD and my pet takes the mob off me easily everytime.
