On 9/12,17, I took to mapping out the locations and spawns of the various Shraloks in Kithikor, after hearing that two of the Shraloks needed for the Hunter of Highpass Hold achievement were spawning here. After extensive work I can confirm that they do spawn here. However, The ones in Kithikor DO NOT update the Hunter achievement. Also, I found a new Shralok. His name is Vehgar Shralok. I found him on location 112, 4244, 514. A few minutes after killing him, I went back to check if there were respawns and found Irin Lunis standing in the same spot. She stayed for a minute then turned and ran east. I have created a list of five different spawn locations and which Shraloks spawn at each, however, I haven't seen every one in the listing and am not sure, after all these years, that anyone would care to see it. I hope this information is useful.

I've been hanging out in Kith for a while recently and I can verify that the undead for the most part are despawning at 6am - game time.

Does anyone know why the zone doesn't change to normal mobs in daytime anymore? Not that I'm complaining, as I'm leveling a cleric and this beats going to ToFS for 30's undeads.

I don't believe it's broken, I believe they made it permanently in the 35-40 range to add zones in that range to the game -- haven't seen any lore to explain the switch.

It's 2009 and the undead are still up at all hours of the day and night. I really wanted to do the Etched Ivy and Orc Impaler etc quests with my ranger, but now I am not sure my druid would be successful!

Has anyone attempted the Kithicor quests since the change?

In answer to your question, it would seem that the undead are up all the time. I zoned in and out several times, and undead were up at 4 am, 5 am, 7 am, 4 pm. There were a few alive beasts, like the Dark Elves, and orcs. But no animals were on track that I noticed.

I have looked almost everywhere on every website I can find....Does ANYONE Know the story of the war that was fought in Kithicor between Firona Vie and that DE chick? I know the daughter of Innoruk was punished by her father for 300 years for failing. But thats about all I can find.
Why did the war occur? Who started it? What happened? When did this happen? And whats going on now?

Please...does anyone know? Even asked Sony...they said to ask a GM, and a GM just said "a war"....lol and left it at that. Geez....ya think??

The Cursing of Kithicor

Quote:
The forces of good led by Carson MaCabe and Lord Tethys sent out recruiters to find whatever assistance they could to help defend Highkeep from the coming dark elf attack. Carson sent a party of adventurers to meet renowned champions in Freeport and escort them back to Highkeep to prepare for the fortresses defense. Both good and evil sent provisioners throughout the world buying the items they would need to equip an army. The dark elves sent emissarys to the trolls and to the orcs of Crushbone to ask assistance in their coming attack on Highkeep. The dark elf ambassador to the Splitpaw clan was called home to act as one of the dark elf generals in the coming battle. Many small skirmishes erupted as forces from both sides came into conflict with each other and tried to find as much information of the other side's plans as they could. Both sides sought as many allies as they could find and the armies of good and the armies of dark swelled as adventurers were found to aid in the coming conflict. The dark elves were finally prepared for their war. Lanys T`vyl, Laarthik and the dark elf army set out from Nektulos on the march for Highkeep. Hearing that the dark elf army was on the march, Carson MaCabe and his allies formed their army. Carson stayed in Highkeep to lead the forces that would defend the keep itself while Galeth Verdeth, Firiona Vie, and Lord Tethys along with the dwarf Tubr Broadaxe set forth with the army of good and entered the Kithicor Woods to hold off the dark army and keep them in the low lands. As they marched to Highkeep the dark elves left portions of their army behind them to guard the path back to Neriak should the battle go badly. The dark elf army entered the Kithicor woods and as they marched on Highkeep the army of the defenders came forth to meet them. As the two armies met in a clash of steel and fury the cries of the dying could be heard for miles. At the peak of the battle Lanys T`Vyl and Lord Tethys met in battle. After a long and fierce combat, the valiant Lord Tethys fell to Lanys's sword. Seeing Lord Tethys fall, the army of good renewed their attack with vicious fervor. Galeth Verdeth engaged Laarthik and his pupil Firiona Vie engaged Lanys. As these four fought, the armies themselves engaged around the combatants in a chaotic ballet of singing steel and magic. The battle raged on with neither side able to turn the tide. But as the battle raged, Lanys slowly began to fail, Firiona Vie pressed her attack, enraged at the death of the gentle Lord Tethys. Lanys faltered and fell wounded. Laarthik seeing Lanys fall made a furious attack on Galeth and the beat the paladin of Tunare back. Laarthik then took out the powerful goblin stone. He held it high, and channeling the power of the stone called upon Innoruuk, Prince of Hate and father of the dark elves. Laarthik was consumed in flame as the energies of the stone cascaded around him and his screams of agony and rage became loud enough for the God of Hate to hear in his far away plane. The ground began to tremble and the clouds gathered in angry darkness over the woodds. A portal of swirling darkness appeared and plunged the woods into an inky blackness. Innoruuk, stepped out of the portal and set foot on Norrath. He found the body of his only daughter sorely wounded and crippled. He was so enraged that mortals would dare to harm his only child that he called down a curse on the woods that had seen Lanys's defeat. Innoruuk took up the limp form of Lanys and called forth his servant Hate. Hate, abeast of pure, unadulterated anger and vile purpose stepped from the shadowy portal and bowed before it's master. Innoruuk ordered it to kill all he could find. Innoruuk, with Lanys in his arms, returned to his plane of hate with his daughter's crippled body, but the energies of the stone that had called him forth had opened the door to that plane forever. The shadows of hate would fill the Kithicor woods and curse it for eternity. The undead of Innoruuk's plane would wander the woods at darkness when the portal was strongest as the door to the plane of Hate would stand open allowing passage between the plane of hate and the world of Norrath forever.

and just incase you want to read what led up to it...

Quote:
Long had the Prince of Hate waited to visit his revenge upon the elves for destroying his plans for them. Long had he dreamt from his twisted city on the plan of hate how the would fall to his power for their betrayal. Hid devoted priestess, that had spirited his dark creations to safety during the rebellion, had been the foundation of his will to destroy them. It was her that gave birth to his unholy child that would one day embody his power on the physical plane. The time had come to introduce his daughter to the world. To complete the tasks what would bring her to power. Innoruuk called upon one of his faithful, Laarthik, one of his old guard, to find those who would rally to the banner of hate and bring his daughter to power. In a vision he spoke to him and bid him complete this taks or suffer his dark God's anger. Laarthik immediately jumped out of bed and donned his armor. He took to the streets shouting the day of the dark elves had come and that Innoruuk was sending his daughter to lead his people to victory over the light races. Many of his dark brothers and sisters gathered to hear what must be done. The bitter medicine of being cast out had never let it taste escape their lips. Lanys T'Vyl, Mistress of Envy, and daughter of hate appeared before them and Laarthik swore fealty to her and her father, that they may lead the dark elves to their rightful place in Norrath. Lanys explained to the gathering that for her to come into her full powers, they must retrieve for her the sacred armor of her father, the Armor of Darkness, log ago entrusted to the keeping of the Crimson Teir'dal, his near fanatical warriors. Long ago when the dark elves had been cast out, he had selected them to keep his dark secrets on Norrath and made them near immortal to guard them into the centuries. Lanys must vanquish each keeper of the pieces that she may prove her worth and accept the mantle her father had prepared. Lanys left the city with Laarthik what followers they had gathered to Befallen, lost capital of the ancient elves, where she knew the first of the Crimson Teir'dal guarded his prize. The followers spread out through the ruins to seek out the warrior and eventually he was found by Lanys herself. No words were spoken, only a nodded understanding, and the two engaged in furious combat. Lanys's rage showed no bounds and she struck him down and licked his blood from her blade. From his arms she took what she had come for, the bracers. She returned to the city with Laarthik and her followers and spent many days in prayer and sacrifice to her father for their success. After this small respite, Laarthik again came to the people and bid them to heed his call. The next of the pieces must be found. This day they would journey to Najena, another fallen city, and face the next of the Crimson Teir'dal. Once the crowd had gathered, Lanys again appeared to them and they made the journey. Upon arriving, once again the spread into the dungeon to find the elusive foe. Soon, he was discovered but this one seemed much more powerful than the first and had harnessed some power dark magics. On each side flew an imp companion that taunted those foolish enough to harm their master. The battled ensued and it seemed that this Crimson Teir'dal could not be defeated. In a fit of anger and frustration at the seeming stalemate, Lanys called down her father's power with a dark prayer and comsumed the area with his powerful hatred. The imps railed against the assault and now she knew she had one. While her minions kept the dark one busy, she unleashed her power on the imps. As the last of the two fell, the Crimson Teir'dal visibly drooped and the weapons of her followers made contact and drew blood. She renewed her assault upon him and soon he was slain. She kicked the dark boots from his feet and stole them away, soon disappearing again to pay homage to her father. Once again Laarthik appeared in the commons of Neriak and began to call those faithful of hate to his side. Laarthik and Lanys were well known in the dark city now and the dark elves had seen Lanys grow in power with the donning of each piece and gathered in hopes that she would fulfil their destiny as rulers of Norrath. Lanys appread to them for a third time and this time the group made journey to Solusek's Eye, where Lanys said the final of the Crimson Teir'dal awaited. As they entered the lands of lavastorm a high elf assassin leaped from the canyon rocks and attacked Lanys. The high elf had learned of her and feared that she might be a real threat. Lanys and her near fanatical followers made short work of the assassin who couldn't hope to capture the element of surprise with so many who were expert in it's use. Lanys and her brood traveled deep into the bowls of Solusek's eye and followed the pull toward her final foe. They came upon a gateway guarded by four clockwork sentries that had apparently been comandeered by the Crimson Teir'dal and the battle was engaged. Many of Lanys's followers were slain as the fight progressed, soon the Crimson Teir'dal appeared, only this time he wasn't alone. This time he had a fellow guard with him and they joined the battle with such fierceness that many of Lany's followers ran in fear, but those who were true stayed and fought on. Those the casualties were heavy, they defeated the clockworks, leaving only the two Crimson Teir'dal. The armor that Lanys had already recovered had made her much stronger and her dark magics and fierce attacks brought the two to there knees with the aid of Laarthik and her followers. As she put on the final pieces of the Armor of Darkness, a seething darkness poured from her and across those in her pressence. It was barely standable. Hatred, anger, rage, envy, jealousy, and revenge overcame them all and they were caught in a hateful haze. Now, none could deny. Innoruuk would be denied no longer. His flesh was among us!

The story that came out with EQ Beta said that Tunare and Innoruuk were simply in the middle of thier usual spats and that Kithicor was just one of the staging grounds. He tried to blow a hole from Hate to Norrath in that forest and she tried to stop him.

So the champion of Tunare (Firiona) and Innoruuk's daughter (Lanys) went at it with their forces all over the forest. It ended in something of a draw and so the forest is relatively safe by day (all the undead mobs depop and most of the zone is level 20 or lower) and sucks at night (all the undead mobs repop).

In the original story (which USED to be in Alla's lore section but that section seems to be fubar now) ... it said the reason the forest went all evil at night was because there was a partial portal to Hate very nearly open within it. The evil was leaking out of that rift and waking the dead from the battle between Firiona and Lanys. Verant/Sony never did seem to do anything with the portal/rift storyline and while I've crawled all over Kithicor I've never found any way to walk to Hate. Then again I've never been able to just walk through it at will at night without getting into trouble that required a quick exit.

It should be noted that this means many of the undead roaming about are undead elves of Tunare who have been twisted to the service of Innoruuk -- as such they are *powerful* clerics. These critters just do *not* seem to ever run out of mana like many mobs can and they *do* complete heal and are some of the most social beasties I've ever seen in the game. It's *very* easy to die under a pile of light blue and green adds in this forest even at level 70.

I have heard that there was a war of evil vs good. There are many player stories about bits of this; the best summary that sums up my understanding was on the Prima website:

Quote:
Kithicor Forest was once a very peaceful land, but that was before the time of war . . . before Innoruuk. In the greatest conflict in modern history, the Daughter of Innoruuk, Avatar of Tunare, did battle upon these lands that lie between Lanys and Fironia. In an action condemned by the gods, Father Innoruuk protected his only daughter from defeat, not for love, but for pride. Unwilling to have his daughter conquered by a follower of Tunare, he opened forever a rift in space between Norrath and the Plane of Hate. This severing of the dimensions killed everything in the forest and hundreds of Warriors’ blood soaked the lands of Kithicor. While Tunare’s blessing keeps the forest safe during the day, Innoruuk’s hatred haunts the night. Therefore, younger parties are safe enough during the day, but only the experienced and masters dare set foot into the forest at night. Many younger characters have learned the meaning of the word fear while watching the sun set upon the forest with the protection of Rivervale still a way off.

Hehe, She wasn't punished if I remember. I am not sure if info from the EQ RPG manual is any good, but it states that it was a stale mate between the two forces, even after Innoruuk popped his long, **** nose into the battle. Anyways, because of Innoruuk's intervention, the fight caused a split in control for the forest. During the day, it is safe to travel, but at night you better shake what your deity gave you across the forest. Most mobs nuke for a lot and while running from one, you tend to run into another.

DO NOT, i reapeat DO NOT travel straight through this zone. Stick to zonewalls, no matter what level you are. If you are a 50+ you may or may not make it during the night time. If you are unlucky you could easily agro a mob or 2 that hit in the mid 200's, and they do it fast, and just to add a bit of insult to you, they Harm Touch you for 800 or so.

If you are below level 50, wait till daylight (/time between 9am and 5pm), and then stick to the zone walls.

Well yeah, I "snuck and hide"-ed through this zone anytime of the day or NIGHT!

Some are LB to a 55th level "business woman", but I have no problems at all. There is a mix of live and undead mobs at night so regular IVU nor regular invis is going to help you.

This zone deserves its bad rep, but, I have hunted here and found it empty and peaceful. Pull to a corner or a zone line. Some mobs will root you, so be careful.

A warning to other Tier'dal, the Teir'dal here are most inhospitible and rude. Just because they have blue skin, that doesn't make them kin! Give them a wide berth anytime, day or night.

No need to wait for daytime, just get SoW, and stay on the NORTH zone wall, when running from WC to HHP. The south wall takes you thru a camp of orcs that aggro lower levels.

If you get something chasing you along north wall, sow should outrun it, and you have rivervale zoneline as an escape route.

Plus FYI daytime is not completely safe either. If a druid has done their epic coin turn in, a "teir'dal reaver" approx level 50, wanders the zone for a little while afterward.

I have always been curious about what is in Kithikor Forest. I have been on the game for a couple of years and never been off the zone wall, Soooooo, I brought up a halfling ranger to level 9 (no cr), and ran Gobbnie streight out from the Rivervale entrance, during the Norrath day, and down the other side AND REACHED WC!!!!!!. Then waited for nightfall, and TOOK THE PATH BACK!!!! I had a chance to see all those big baddies in the zone, and survived to tell the story, I did make it to Rivervale. Well, I am not so stupid as to think that I could repeat this feat, I still am careful to use the zone wall when ever I need to go to the Ranger Guild.

I'm a lvl 9 High Elf Enchanter, when I hit lvl 8 I went to buy a pet spell from my guild for this lvl but to my horror learned I had to get to Highpass Keep to buy them and anything above. Thanks to Planes of Power I was able to port myself to Misty Thicket with a nice short and safe run to Rivervale, there passed through to Kithicor Forest. It was suppose to be a short walk to Highpass Hold. I was oblvious about that the undead come out at night, so I ran into some sort of skeleton which killed me in about 5 swings. Luckly, I didn't have to retrieve my corpse. I then learned newbies should travel in the day, so I tried it again. This time I even took extra care and waited for someone else to make the journey across as a target. I think she was a Edrin Wiz. It was about 10AM. We followed the path and about halfway there she passed some sort of Dark Elf Assasin, he didn't even flinch at her. So I tried to pass, of course he attacked me. I made a run for Highpass but when in sight of the entrance I was killed. I then went back and tried it again. This time I waited for high noon and just ran all the way and never looked back, this time a Bixie attacked me but I kept running. He did a total of about 2 hp of damage so I made it free and clear to Highpass. Once inside I was attacked by a Orge at the entrance! Not sure it this is always the case but I kept on running. With one bubble of HP left I came to a bridge with a guard and they duked it out, I didn't even stopped to see who won. Once safe inside I regended and continue on to may task. I had enough PP to buy a lvl 8 Pet. After all I went through I sold all the jewery I had in stock and I was wearing, I used it to buy all the pet spells I could, I don't have to return until level 24. Hoepfully, I will be strong enough to survive this #&%@ level because if I die then I will have to recover my corpse! Yikes!
Just Getting Thru

A very nice Level 4 Enchanter showed me how to escape Rivervale when I was just 9.

1. Know where you are going.
2. Enter the zone around 7am. Don't be caught in Kith at night.
3. Get a SoW. (Camo if you want, but it's not that helpful.)

Most Important: Run high up on the wall and don't stop for anything. Forget the paths until you are tough enough to take out the local undead.

So leaving RV for WC, I go left up on the wall and follow it around to the WC zone and reverse that coming back. No lingering, no looking, no talking to strangers. Smiley: yikes

Be safe.

A few days ago my then 16th level WE druid (now 20) was heading through during the day to Rivervale, staying on the path, when 'a Dark Elf Assassin', somewhat different from the guys in Misty Thicket, jumped me.

This skinny little DE conned around 14th level to me, and I dispatched him pretty easily. He dropped a no-drop item, 'a severed Tier'Dal Hand'.

I have found no references to this on any site or through guild, etc. Anyone know what it is for ?

I spend my nights in this haunted forest... and my days are spent selling my armor that I have smithed to prepare for the purchase of a more deadly sword to slay the undead with. It is known that the undead generally do not roam at the day time... but on several occasions even as late as 11am or early as 2pm I have Sensed Undead throughout the zone. The reason why they are there I'm not sure... maybe the darkness of the forest permits them to roam the forest. Be aware.. if you see a lone person hunting in the forest, that slayed undeads spirit may still linger long after it has been sent to its grave again.

rarely the more powerful undead will still be wandering around in daylight, but not usually. There are low level undead that wander around in this zone, as well as some static spawns near a ruin. that may be what you are sensing with your spell.

when the undead start to cast (them ones that do that healing!) bash with shield and then immediately cast stun to double sure that they dont get that heal off. I found out that this makes battles shorter as just bashing doesnt always interrupt (specially the ones not timed). I have yet to see a mob not get interrupted by a stun. If you dont interrupt them when casting, you will end up killing one about 2 or 3 times because they heal so much. Thats all. I will hunt here in kithicor till 40 i guess

Lamini BraveKnight - level 35 paladin of cazic thule

Weapon 1hs Ghoulbane 15dam/34delay
Shield Velium Round Shield
132 str
96 dex

I cant think of a better class to hunt undead with than a paladin. Sure, a cleric nukes the **** out of them. But then goes oom. Being a paladin in kithicor at nite is just
1. Sense undead
2. Go get the thing and bring it near zone... use expulse undead to nuke it for 94damage. If you have sow you can use it again before you melee if it not too close.
3. Even with a low dex of 96, the Ghoulbane will proc at least twice per battle for 162 max at level 35. oh.. bring lots of bandages before you battle here to save mana.
4. Some battles are VERY long! I often take so long to kill a undead cleric or a tortured healer that they actually go OOM!!! They just stand there taking the beating.
5. The reason for saving mana is that once they start running away from you, nuke with expulse undead so that you dont follow them and bring others into battle. After killling, then meditate. The problem with this tactic is that you'll only be able to do about 4 to 5 battles per nite. But you'll get at least 1 blue each nit3, out of just 4 fights! All loot is yours, all exp is yours. Best of all, you're near freeport and not have to be in rathe mountains or somewhere far off from yer corpse if ya die.
*** get dex as high as you can here. I had some spirit of monkey or something cast on me before and my dex was 115, was proccing 3 times per battle

euedien 38th cleric. <I LOVE KITH>

1. us clerics get the undead dd. mine now dies 270. once out of 10 times will it ever do less. i have actually been soloing kith off and on starting at lvl 33ish. not to hard to do but some things to point out. the high mobs (begin) to pop at 7pm norr time while the bulk of them come in at 8pm. soloing can be done by memming the proper spells and NEVER leaving site of the zone. in fact just wait for undead clerics to walk by if you are lvl 33.(they do roam the perimeter and you can see them walking by. at least i do pulling to the wc zone. mem the following spells. your current highest undead dd. your current highest stun -holy might or force. your current highest root. your sense undead. your invis vs undead. DA OR DB of course. and youll usuially have 1 slot that you wont use. you pick that one. if your over 34. buff your self to you fullest capable at all times. the undead are casters. well most of them in kith. WARNING when using your sense undead. note that when it points you in the direction of the most nearbye undead. that doesnt mean the a wolf isnt 5 feet away from you <the wolves are not undead.> unfortunetly there will always be times when you pull an undead and a wolve will follow as the wolves are in abundence. btw the last slot thats free dont use any type of fear spell as it will just fear em off farther into the zone. stick with undead clerics at 33. at 38 the forrest is yours. well aside from the $%+ which you wont see since your NEVER leaving site of the zone.

2 even in the day time if your a good race there are areas of the forest where you will be running or walking and suddenly you will be chain nuked for 800's. no joke. its those dark elves i believe ther are a few of ther camps in the forrest. btw ive killed a lot of undead clerics not once i have i seen this +wis weapon they drop.

if your soloing an undead with a pet always kill pet first. use the undead nuke not the anti summon spells for obvious reasons-they dont do as much dd with your corresponding lvl.

when your around 32 and up you can cast invis vs undead and pretty much not be seen by any mobs. the undead ones of course.

hope this helped some of you

Clomen Walker is in the first house on your right when you enter in from the Commons. You never really have to leave the zone area to find him.

Be careful at night, last night I was almost killed by a ghoul healer when I was both full health and full mana. I am a 43 Ranger, and I thought maybe I would get some vengeance for all the times I had run screaming through that place after getting some Ivy Etched. Needless to say, it will still be a while before I can get any solo vengeance in here.

Very nasty stuff in there when the sun goes down.

Hunting the night away...

This zone makes a *excellent* hunting ground for groups in their low 30's, as myself and some friends found out this morning. We had a 34 Ranger (Myself), 30 Druid, 30 Monk, 31 Druid, 30 Warrior, and 29 Enchanter. We were taking Undead clerics quite easy (They are also most definatally /not/ level 35, they con blue to me at 34, every last one of them, meaning they are level 33 or lower), dread wolves with little problem, Dreaded wolves were a good fight...Zombie Commanders and their pets were a pain in the ****, but doable (sow off, click walk! =) ), and we actually were insane enough to try ONE Enraged Dread Wolf, which we actually killed with this group, even being unable to stick a single spell on it (and with two druids chain casting Greater Healing and the enchanter passing out Rune II at a alarming rate). I don't recommend the enraged dread wolves until late 30's with a good group, they hit for a max of 109 Damage and duel hit quite often, the rate in which they can chew up a level 34 Ranger and 30 Monk was quite alarming..

Only one died in three nights of hunting, and the loot was actually decent. Give this zone a shot if you're above 30 and got some friends around, you'll have a really good time (tip: Pull to /very/ near a zone line, overpull here can wipe out a entire party in about 10 seconds.)

I was the 30 druid in Doomcloud's group. If nothing else, hunting here gives a sence of revenge. It was quite strange how we ended up all together. Doom and I went to hunt and found the other druid who agreed to join us. Then an enchanter zones in and decides to join the group. Doom and I talked to our monk friend who wanted to help, and lastly we just picked up a warrior. I can say that this was the best pickup group I've ever had. The enchanter stunned and kept all the casters from fearing/healing/lifetapping. Us two druids healed and DoTted the undead and the meleers...well....meleed. Good exp, decent coins, and a chance at some uber-wepons, all in all a great place to hunt. The wepons are, however, rare drops. Out of the many, many undead we killed, we only looted one fine steal dagger.

I'd also like to note that this is great for busy people to hunt. You fight at night, and have all the Norrathian day to bank, sell, auction, quest, kill shadowed men or hill giants in WC, port some friends, or do a real life errend, like make food, go smoke, or take a shower. Then you all rally back in Kith and start all over agian. It's intense fighting, and then you can relax. Excelent fun

Tidy soloing experience - Shraloks

Kithicor is usually just a place to run though, and run through fast! (heh) However, as a Ranger, it has become a useful resource for me, because there is a Ranger trainer, fletching supply merchants, and of course, the Ivy-etched quest people. It&#8217;s close to the bank in Rivervale, which is a safe zone, and easily handy to Highkeep and WC.

Once I completed the Ivy Bracer quest, I had half an hour before I needed to log off, not really enough to get with a group in HHK or Runnyeye, so I put on track and looked around Kith for some prey, as it was only 10am Norrath time.

There is a small group of named Shralok orcs (lvls 13-22) along the western wall, just south of the entrance to Highhold. They are spaced far enough apart that if you position yourself right, you can pull them one at a time. I had solo&#8217;ed one back in my Highhold orc group days (17-19), hoping they&#8217;d drop the Shralok pack (no such luck, go to HH for that). I picked them off one at a time; there were a couple greens and a couple blues. The Chief and one of the other ones are casters; I think 3 of the 6 cast. They took damage pretty quickly and the non-casters could not keep up with me for damage output. The casters on the other hand could reel off 15-30+ damage at a pop; but I had resist cold and resist fire on so I was doing ok with only a little bit of down time to med.

Aside from my own buffs, I only used snare and burst of flame, and happily whacked away on them with dual weild/double attack and kick. (on a good round, I can get in close to or over 100 dmg in dual weild/double attack and then another 5-10 in a kick). Took them all out in less than 20 minutes and earned about 2+ blues in the process (lvl 25) and was only down 2 reds of health, although down 4 blues of mana between self-buffing, heals between them, and fighting mana. Since it was almost 4pm game time by the time I finished these guys off, I headed back to Rivervale to the bank and to log.

In all, a decent 20 minutes, with a tidy little bit of experience to boot, reasonably easy solo. Then as I zoned in to Riverdale, I got to kill off Nillipus the Brownie to boot! (that little sucker hits hard considering he's supposed to be 17!!)
