These b-stards will RUIN YOUR DAY, as will all guards really. I was killing a swarmcaller or something on my 22 bst and he gets to 19% and starts running. Well, he starts running in the direction of the guard so im like ****.

The guard hits it once im pissed so i attack the guard and take him down and go after the swamcaller which i found out was attacked by the other 2 guards by nexus entrance so no exp for me.

Well I get pissed some more so i go after what i thought was a easy guard, nope, got this one. Im a 22 bst with 1983 hp and 1143 mana with temp on and my pet has like 2k with temp and pet toys plus a weighty polearm for a wep (GREAT pet items, he doubles for 61 and there VERY cheap, great way to abuse the tutorial by soloing krenshin at lvl 2 with a fire pet).

Well i go after him with 100% mana/hp pet at 100% and i chug a clarity pot and haste pot and engage him. Get him to about 40% or something i wasnt paying attention and i look back and hes at 100%. I said ****, a pally, (remembers when his 51 druid was trying to solo the healing aqua goblins for epic *shudders*).

So im attacking him again and he keeps healing himself at 50% and he gets to 65% or so and this is going on for around 10 minutes (drank about 4 or 5 healing pots). And finally he starts to run at 20% and im like YES. At the end im at about 45% health 32% mana pets at 42% health and I go kill 4 mobs for my lvl and log. To make a long story short, dont let your mobs get too far away or guards will EFF you up.

I was having a GE group today and the tanks and everyone else died.. i had Jboots and started to run to the zone, zoned. and POOF im next to PoD in PoK.
i was like "what the crap?!?!? gay." then i went on the corpse run to it.. noticed this haven guard here, lookin funny at me, so...
You have hit a Haven Guard for 712 points of damage
a Haven guard felt a light heal. (or sumtn like that)
And i was like "?!?!" when his HP went to 100%again.
Then i nuked him for 640 and 1020, dead. :D
then this darkelf came by and saw me insulting this dead haven guard. You say: FRAEKIN GUY YOU WERE THE REASON THAT I DIED (even though he did nothing) i was just really mad...
then get to DSP and the dark elf send me a tell..
"you talkin' to me?" you tell dark elf "nah, i was just taking out my blind fury on a haven guard"
dark elf tels you "cool" then i camped :p
So, when your equipment isnt on and your not a uber mage or a nuker, dont mess with these, they heal, and they will kick your butt.

easy kills....great exp

I started soloing these at 35(shadow knight) i think....they are easy kills, only problem is when they heal themselves...not all of them heal
themselves however and i will just fear them when they get below half health. I am 39 still getting good exp off them, they are never camped. If you do it be ready to be kos in shadow haven....thats the only place ive been where i noticed a change.

Spent a few hours charming them on each other, great cause the zone is right there once they go wild. Zoning breaks the charm and removes you from the hate list. They are great taunters also btw. They are dark blue to me.

Facts about Neth Haven Guards
# Mar 22 2002 at 8:33 PM Rating: Decent
13 posts
****Guards now give faction hits.. the rest of this message is just for reference in the past****
I have verified this and the faction hits for Shady Haven are HARD faction hits. *FYI*

--No Longer useful--
Facts as of "3-22-02"
(Note: may change if verant ever figures out that people are actually making experience in this zone ~_~;)
Some of the BEST soloing/healing partner exp you will get in the game from levels 30-38. Hands down no competition. At level 33, a half a bubble of blue (or more depending on race restrictions) per kill AND you can solo.
--Guards are level 27-30--
(Incrediable exp from level 30-38 and a warrior/monk/paly/shdknght can securely solo these at level 32)
--Guards don't give faction hits--
(Verified fact. I can kill the guards all day long and they still appear indifferent/apprehensive to you. Even the Shady haven guards as well)
--Guards don't agro if you pull from the sides--
(Guards will agro if you pull when they are right next to each other i.e. when they kill a neth drone or fungoid and are grouped. Just pull from the sides of the walls and none of the others will join.
--Guards have Lay Hands and Heals--
(some of the pesky guards have LH and greater heals but most do not. Guards will heal each other if in range so pull deep)
--Guards/Lieutenant's are on a 10-12 minute timer (If you have a healing partner, its very easy to kill all 3 haven guards on the Nexus side then move over to the Marus/Lieutenant side to lay waste to those 3. Then repeat the cycle as your finished killing. Best experience you can ever get with minimal risk)
--A Haven Customs Inspector rarely lays hands and almost never heals--
(easiest to kill of the Guard/Lieutenant bunch)
--All guards drop HEAVY no rent stuff--
(Guards drop "Fordel Defender Blade" and the Lieutenants drop a "Combine Defender Sword" *could me mistaken on spelling* plus a Sheild *don't know the name, sorry for my lack of detailed information [cough cough] _;*. Each are NO DROP, NO RENT, MAGIC items that weigh 25 pounds each. Quest items.. possibly but for now.. trash em or leave them for the Magician's pets.)
--Lieutenant Giru is the toughest of the bunch--
(through my leveling's in Neth lair, I've found that Lieutenant Giru is the hardest of the 'guards' since he almost ALWAYS lay hands and tends to hit just a tad bit harder than the rest
--Lieutenant Anolani *spl?* will only lay hands
(through my experiences, Lieu. Anonomli *hahhah* will only Lay Hands. I have yet to seem him heal himself ((or others for that fact)) and I HAVE been keeping track)
I've been leveling my Warrior cat since 31 all the way to 35 now and have solo'ed the majority of the time. Buy a bag full of stacked Bandages at Shady Haven *hardly any loot so stock up* and head to the Neth Lair. The guards are on a 10-12 minute timer and if your solo'ing it gives you plenty of time to kill 1 guard(possibly 2 if your uber twinked), bind wound up to 50 and rest up to at LEAST 3+ bubbles. I don't recommend taking on another guard if your below 3 bubbles as they 'can' get in some good repeative hits. Most of the time my warrior will go beserk and finish off the guard and I end up with 1-2 bubbles of HP left. I believe [could be mistaken] the guards have upwards of 750-1000 HP not including LH's and greater heals. If you can get yourself a healing partner I would recommend it since you DO get more exp and kills in that way.
Guards occasionally drop Ruins/words/pages and always drop coins (from 6 gold to 6 plat. Mostly 2-4 plat)

Why the heck do you kill them? I mean, right there, you've suffered so much damage from a guard and you look behind you and there are Netherbians everywhere....

If Shadow Haven isin't KOS to anyone why are ppl afraid of these? Actual conversation with a guard:
Iksar necro says "Hail, a Haven guard." Haven guard says "Iksar!!!! Dog pile!!!" Iksar necro is dog piled on for 1372 pts of damage! a pile of Haven guards have slain a Iksar necro!

Why consider these as MOBS? Human walks up to a Haven Guard. A haven guard says "Ahhh!!! Outsider!!! Kiiiiilll!!!!" A human has taken 130 pts of damage, a human has taken 130 pts of damage, etc.... A human has been slain by a hundred haven guards!

And plz answer the last one saying if they do Actually aggro on ppl. Thx!

The sword they drop is called the Fordel Defender Blade. It's no drop, no rent. And no stats worth mentioning. Maybe there is some quest related to these things, but I don't have clue.

they con apprehensive and give no faction hits when you kill them... They drop complete crap, although it does look cool equipped. I'd rather have that 75/45 1hs dropped by Lord Inquisitor Seru...

Guards good to solo
# Feb 15 2002 at 1:03 PM Rating: Default
I've been soloing / trying to solo the guards for about 4 hours at the nexus zone, they are NOT an EASY kill for a lvl 31 iksar warrior...but they do die...cept for the pallys...they are NOT all pallys...if they are they are stupid as they do not heal, I saw only 1 guard con even, no yellows or reds they got decent AC and above average HP, usally drop between 1-5pp in cash plus mabye some words that you can sel for 5gp. what REALLY bites is that the venders are offering me 7pp+ for the swords but won't buy them cause of NODROP...DANG THAT SUCKS!

(ps) everytime I got a nice high lvl shammy/druid/cleric/whoever to buff me up, I always lost all my buffs zoning into nexus to flee from guards...that usally happened when I had to break the spawn. Is that normal? a nexus feature or some crap? or a bug?
Let me correct this
# Feb 20 2002 at 8:41 AM Rating: Default
First of all they are not 45. They are about 30ish to 32 at the most. I am a 36 Paladin and I solo them all the time. Watch out though, they are Paladins also and they heal themself and use lay hands. Second of all they do not look like that at all. And another thing that's cool about them is that they don't have faction. I've killed over 10 of them and they don't have faction at all. Good exp thoughy depending on what level you are.

Put the Pipe down and step away from the keyboard, take a few deep breaths and read above, before spreading cheite.
No Drop, No Rent you cannot give to anyone. They may loot, but you cannot pass to anyone.

# Jan 15 2002 at 9:32 PM Rating: Default
i dont think they made these guys wield the sowrd for the loot hehe, maybe its for like pet classes or soemthing, or to practice disarm, not lots of stuff to practice disarm or get decent pet weapons or at least something that looks cool on em for it hehe.....theyed be harder to kill if it was good :P
btw, there not that high,45, i killed em at 38, blue to me then.

Well, while hunting those guards the other day, someone came up to me and told me he messes faction with the kitties by killing haven guards. Thought I still have an hard time to believe that his loss of faction was due to haven guards killing, I still believe him a bit. So I guess I'll see next time I get to Shar vhal.

I have soloed a few of these and I'm only a lvl 32 Shadowknight. They don't drop very much money and the weapons that they drop are no rent no drop and weigh a ton. The sword weighed something like 25 and the shield weighed 20. My advise...kill them for the experience, destroy the worthless loot.
