The huntsman is definitely 49 every spawn. He has alot of hps(10-12k) and extremely high magic resist. I have managed to connect 1 spell once(strike for testing). His max hit I believe is 133 and kicks for 40ish. Not sure what slows can connect as I've only seen shaman and enchanter attempt(both with failure). I couldn't imagine many classes being able to solo him, however a decent duo definitely can. Personally have killed him with 2 lvl 45s.

I believe his spawn time is around 6 hours. Not absolutely positive of this, but I am sure that it is between 5-6 hour spawn time. He is on different faction as Royal Armorer and you will not get aggro in the far corner between huntsman/armorer. The faction hit is fairly significant. I believe faction went from Threatening to Dubious in 6 kills and coldain faction dropped fast. The head is a commond drop(around 80% ATLEAST) as well as his boots. Also, watch out for dain if he is at his throne room and will attack you(sees past invis) if you run past him and are not careful.

Today i went to icewall to check this guy out, there was an iksar monk camping him,I started to talk to him about the camp and he told me what he does, He hits the huntsman a few times and when he runs away he FD's and waits till he returns, once he returns hits him a few times , and well he runs yet again , soooo FD again and wait. He told me this was time consuming but he said the pp still comes in. I hope this helps, he only told me about this, and i didnt wait to see if it worked, but he was selling the boots on/market,i hope this helps..

A 60 necro could solo this guy if the DoTs stick well(as I'm told). Possibly can kill him np with just using a pet and some DoTs/drains if necessary. If it doesn't all go well, of course you could use FD and possibly even /q out if needed to clear aggro and then finish him off with more DoTs/pets if needed. This strat would work for a lower lvl necro as well, but a 60 necro should have little problems pushing this guy over

Tactic to kill this guy. Please Help
# Nov 10 2001 at 5:57 AM Rating: Default
Greeting !

Ok i tried to kill this guy 5 times. And 5 times i got my *** handed. But let me start from the beginning.
In the room are 2 mobs. One the Huntsman and one the royal Armorer. They are on different faction and dont assist each other, when the persons involved in the fight are ALLY to dwarfs. The dwarf is resistant to magic and colt. I know fire and poisen hits very good. I am not sure on deseasie based dmg. To meelee the guy is not a problem, but when he gets low on hps he starts running. And that is the moment where the trouble begins. He cannot be snared or rooted and once he leaves the room he agros the royal guards outside. Trouble or in other words. Certain death. That means he has to die before he leaves the room wich is only possible by nukes. So my suggestion is to have 1 tank, 1 cleric and 2 or even better 3 wizards to nuke the guys to pieces once he starts running. But i have not tried that zet since i could not get a wizard to help me. When somone knows how to kill him wiht another tactic please post it here.

Oh and make sure you wait till the court is gone... the Dain will summon you down the pit and the only chance to get the body from down there is with a 200pp coffin...

Best regards,

You people do nothing but post senseless rambling. How's this?
1) Is this guy soloable? If so, by which classes and what lvl?
2) What are his resists?
3) Whats the boots for
4) Does the head even ever drop?
5) Where is he located?

Answer to 2 is, he's resistable to everything but fire.
Answer to 3 is, they're for coldain skin boots, other than that I don't know anything else about the guy, so people, help out :P

What is the respawn time on him. Someone on my server must have him timed cause he's never up.

i saw a high lvl warrior and druid killing huntsman and scribe, well, i didn't see them kill scribe but they did. i watched them kill huntsman and i got the boots because they didn't want it :). i'm a 27 barbarian shaman and these boots rock for my class, race and lvl :). i don't know if he dropped anything else, i think he did because the warrior looted it for a little bit more than usual like he was typing something, then druid came and looted something, i think it was the head for the coldain sskin armor. Well, if anyone has any other information about this please do a RE for it
