These swarmlings appeared alongside The Swarm Mother while the Karanas were plagued. They disappeared when the Karanas were cleansed in the fall of 2001.

Formerly of Western Karana.

Just curious, do these things and the Swarm Mother still spawn? I have hung out in WK for awhile with various alts, but never seen nor heard of the swarm. If anyone has seen them recently, let us know please.

I'm a lvl 30 druid now.... but at lvl 27 I went there to visit my friend... a lvl 60 druid. I was walking around normal... and the swarmlings poped... They were hittin me hard and I couldn't kill em all. So I had to get saved by my lvl 60 druid friend who killed em all with 1 AE. They aren't as low as you think tho... Maybe some are... but maybe some aren't. I'm not quite sure whats up with these bugs. I just know a griffon got charmed by a chanter and couldn't kill em all without getting below half life quite a bit... Hmmm... Perhaps GMs have changed the lvls a bit or the lvls are random. I just want you to know that these could easily kill you so go the opposite way they are. I don't care what lvl you are if they swarm you... Your screwed. Unless your high enough... i'd say about 35. But even i'm confused about them.... I went there with a lvl 11 alt and they all coned green but to my druid they were light blue and kickin my ****.... Hmmmm LOL this has gone on long enough... Just be careful I think these gms are doing something wierd............
lvl

Over this past Halloween, the Karanas were 'cleansed' of their disease as part of the GM events that took place at that time. You no longer get sick when you enter WK, your hit point recovery is now normal instead of half, and that dumb necromancer no longer shouts, 'What a lovely disease filled place'. Also, the green mist that used to fill the air is gone. As part of the cleansing, the swarm no longer exists. Asking the NPC's in Qeynos, however, (Vegalys Keldrane in particular) shows that they have not removed the plague storyline from the game. Wheteher they intend to bring it back or are just too lazy to change it, I do not know.
lvl 6 critters

They con green to me. I killed them easily, this was in WK at one of the guard towers. The guards just stood there, too.

I was at the gypsy camp, preparing to turn in a greater lightstone, when the stupid things came after me. My solution? Run! Not being the brightest character on the server, I ran west, all the way back to the zone line. The good news is that I survived; the stupid things are slow.

BTW, this was my level 14 enchanter, not Molivin herself, who would have surely killed the nasty bugs.
so there I was...
