Update on A defender of Arx
# Mar 09 2004 at 11:14 AM Rating: Decent
These are level 50. Several locations that they spawned. Killed 4 with no page drop.

They are LB to 64, DB to 52 to 60 toons. They are social and will gain assist from others.

Suggest pulling to the walls or away from others. A tracker is basically required. Spawn time appears to be 15 mins or so but did not keep good records. Only one seemed to be up at a time and each spawned in a different place.

What approximate area would I find these ? I know a previous post said it can be in a number of different places, what are the places ? I spent good hour & half just trying to find an area with Arx in it.

Any info would be great
If it's easier to refference the locations to the map at EQAtlas that would be good. Fairly simple map there.

** EDIT ** OK, I found a bunch of Arx and even 1 Defender. Killed Defender and hung around for repop and it was another random mob not another Defender so, just cause you kill one does not make it a guarantee that another will take its place.

Well looks like this Mob has been finally fixed over here on Tarew Marr.

The Defender of the Arx at Loc -677, -1258. Cons indifferent to me, a pally dwarf that follows Brell Serilis.

That false sense of security thing is right on. After running out of basic provisions in Dawnshroud, it was suggested to me that I go find some more in Sanctus. Wandered around with no problems for maybe half an hour. Even walked into most of the buildings. Upon exiting one though, this lil meanie started whacking on me... tried to get gate off several times, but was unavailing in my attempts. That was the most heart pounding CR I've ever had to make... similar to my earlier days of camoing and running through Nek praying that invisi wouldn't wear off. Oh well, just another NPC on the "cosmic nuke" list.

[Update Thursday May 8th]

From the massive patch message...

"Addressed an issue with an aggressive NPC that appeared outside of the Arx Building in Sanctus Seru"

Ok, it says "addressed an issue". I'm still not convinced to go back in and see if I'm safe... anyone else?

There are a few other aggros in this zone, all arx npcs, defenders I think. I saw another one while exploring close to the arena. Best thing to do is just make sure you con everything before you run around.

Like you, I was lulled into the safety of a new town. Reveling in being a light race guarded zone (Mars Seru) and having the luxury to run to Sanctis to sell made me feel special (like the reverse OT). While exploring I was walking up a hallway with my 29 monk (had sow on) and stopped to get my bearrings when I was jumped from behind. I ran until I found a pool and FD'ed. Luckily it worked and the guy walked back to his post (he was standing near SW tunnel leading to Champion). I stood up to bind wound when (in my F9 birds eye view) I saw him running after me again. He got one hit in before I could FD. Luckily I lived. I made it to the zone where a lvl 44 cleric healed me back up. I made her con the ****** and he scowled at her too (a high elf) but was only yellow. What is the point of this little greasemonkey?? To simply kill off everyone; is Verant trying to keep us on our toes and never let our guard down or something?

This little peck might be minimum of 35 with a good twinked group... But you better have a title if you're thinking of soloing him.. hehe He hits hard and fast. And was red to my bst at 44. So either the spawn has a broad range of lvls or the mob you see above has a wicked evil twin runnin' around. (Or they got the lvl wrong.. hmm)

This guy just attacked and killed my 41st level ranger. He was red to me for some reason, but I am sure it was the same guy. I made sure to con him, I wasn't prepared at all, and didn't have sow, and died. ( Lost 41 as well (

This little guy jumped me at the bank and hit me for enough to take my lvl 35 BL down 2 bbls of health before I was able to turn around. My warder immediately jumped him and I decided it was better to run for the zone than to take him on myself without knowing who/what he was about.

Next time in he dies......
