The Loping Plains occupy the central area of Faydwer. Once a healthy habitat for a large variety of Tunare's creations, the Loping Plains has become cursed and twisted by the influence of dark powers. From the south, the dark forces of the Bloodmoon tribe creep out from Bloodmoon Keep threatening to consume the land, while the curse of an angry god pulses from the northern coast and the Hills of Shade.

A large outdoor area, this place is great for kiting as most non-named mobs do not summon.

Well, if you are wondering, I'll asnswer my own post after a bit of adventuring there.

No - There a not many summoning mobs, nor ones with immunity to root/snare

The various Minotaur caves I am finding decent XP at 81st. A lot of double pulls, but easy to root and DoT both of them.
80-85K HP my guess on the Minotaurs. Takes 2 Pocus, 2 Juju, 2 Kerfymn, 2 Rancor and 1 Ankhul to drop the Dark Blues, you can skip the second Rancor on Light Blues. (This is with maxed out DoT Crit chance and damage for 81st)

Loot is decent: Minotaur parts worth stacking except Meat, spells drop occaisonally. 4 Elegant drops in 20-25 Minotaurs; Chain Legs, Plate Legs, Silk Gloves, Chain Gloves. Minotaurs occaisonally transform to a Voidsoul Thingy and drop some Voidsoul thingy.

Final note, sink your Maloswhatever spell first or you'll waste alot of mana of resisted DoTs.

Horatio_Ghoul appeared outside the top Mino cave by Fangbreakers camp. Would not respond to Hails and could not attack. Kept asking for bones and such so after looting a couple of Bleached Skulls off of the Minos (which had not dropped in the previous 3 hours) I handed both to Horatio and he handed back an othri wrist piece (sorry for spelling). He then despawned and not again seen for the 2+ hours that we camped there.

Try the Swiftblade camp, it's just to the right of the entrance to Bloodmoon Keep. I was over there for about a month and all I got was Cleric & Paladin spells! Oh yes, I also got the inevitable 'Talisman of the Cougar', at least it sells to the vendor for some coin. ;-)

Please change the description, of this zone please. First of all all the named in this zone ,and this expansion that drop anything in the way of loot, both Summon, and are Immune to runspeed changes. The only named that do not summon and can be rooted are the Quest type for faction or items.

This is very misleading cause the same rules do not apply in the burried sea expansion, but hear in the Sof expansion it does hold true.

It says: this place is great for kiting as most mobs do not summon.

How do the name mobs summoning people make this info misleading? It does not say every single mob in this zone will not summon you.

there are 10 quests for Dwinn Axeheaver. The arc is NOT repeatable once completed...can only repeat the step that you are on at that time. Quest names are:

An Interrogation
Get some information out of the large orc in the northern camps
Find and kill Fearfang
Bring Dwinn Axeheaver the Blood-Smudged Journal

The Investiagtion Continues
Search for additional information from the camps close to Bloodmoon
Spawn Apprentice ???? - Loot Illegible tome
Bring Dwinn Axeheaver the illegible tome

An Orcish Ritual
Find and speak with Kassailla Flameleaf about the tome
Disrupt the ceremony at the alter
(kill a bloodmoon mystic in the centor of alter to spawn High Shaman ????) ((this event spawns every night at 7 pm. and despawns at 5 am so the high shaman must be killed before 5 am))
Return to Kassillia
Give Kassaillia the tome to translate
hand in an illegible tome that you received from dwinn after last task
Bring Kassaillia any texts that would help decipher the tome
(did not find said texts)
???

*The text need is Shadowmane Spellbook, Drops from random shadowmane in loping plains* **Quest arc allowed me to continue without returning the book to her. Just go back and speak with Dwinn and he will give the next quest...unless they fixed it

Assessing the Danger
Assess the danger of the orcs to the west
Run towards hills of shade and just as you get into the worg area you will get jumped by 4 wereorcs. Only the two ambushers matter, they are all snare/rootable kite them long enough or get them to a certain amount of hp and they will give an emote and despawn--task updated
Return to Dwinn and tell him about the ambush

The Black Crystal
Bring Dwinn a black crystal from the mines
Search out the orcs who ambushed you
See if you can get any information out of the orcs
kill all 4 orcs this time
Return to Dwinn and tell him what you found from the orcs

The Proof is in the Bucket
Use the bucket of blood to check Dwinn's theory Go to the Most westernly orc camp(near the vampire caves) and use the charge on the bucket of blood to spawn 4 more orcs.
Slay the attacking orcs 4/4
Return to Dwinn and tell him what you found from the orcs
A Working Crystal
Return to Kassaillia and ask her about the rituals
Obtain a fully charged crystal from the ritual in the crypt
-kill High Shaman Nirvag and the Prophet that spawns after he dies. (this event spawns at 11pm each night and despawns at 5 am)
***So update now, i got it completed. I had to go and loot another black crystal from the minotaurs and then take that crystal to the lost souls after they spawned with high shaman nirvag. The lost souls then despawn and THEN kill the high shaman. I used AE root to park all the adds at one end of the valley towards hills of shade zone. Nuked the high shaman and dragged him to the ZL to kill. He HAS to die before 5 am.!! when he dies a lost soul will spawn again and wander near him and then poof, loot the Humming black shard***
Return the Humming Black crystal to Dwinn

Last task:

It Ends Now
Place the humming black crystal in the center of the ruins(ruins near bloodmoon)
Slay any orcs that come to investigate the crystal
**3 waves: 1st wave-2 lvl 80 con, 2nd wave-4 yellow con orcs, 3rd wave- 4 yellow con and named: Grand Shaman Talun (red con to lvl 80) snare/rootable doesn't summon**
Return to Dwinn Axeheaver and inform him of your success

***After task one none of the missions give xp or faction. Last task gave me approx 3 aa's worth of xp and a slot 13, 14 augment

5th Bloodmoon Mission
# Nov 28 2007 at 2:07 AM Rating: Decent

Anyone been successful with the 5th bloodmoon group mission given here?

Its called "The Dark Crystals" given by Maria Starforge?

Collect 5 jailor keys
Free 5 Miners
Loot a torch
Destroy the explosives cache.
Return to Maria

Collect the keys...easy.
Free 5 miners again....easy.

When the 5th miner is free an engineer orc will spawn in the west upper cave near 5 barrels called explosives cache. Kill the orc and loot the torch which is a clicky small ae dd that lights the barrels.

Soon as you light one you get a fuse emote that slowly ticks down. (something like every 30 seconds) Should take 6 ticks. So you need to protect the barrels for 3 mins. Problem is, yellow con to lvl 80 orcs start spawning like one every 5 to 10 seconds. Before you know it you have 50 mobs running all over the place. Havent even tried to tank this. Just tried to kite it with hella kiters. Weve been pretty close a few times but its hard with mobs running all over some with snare and some without to make it the whole time.

If any orcs get in that room and arent aggroed for a few seconds they will defuse your explosives and :
a) if you are still alive or someone is still alive, you will get a failed emote but the engineer orc will respawn so you can try again.
b) if everyone is dead / hovering / zoning then it fails to reset the orc and your screwed. You need to get a new mission and reclear the whole thing. Not sure if thats intended but when your trying like crazy to live from 50 crazed mobs running all over that hit for 3kish, its easy to end up with a group hovering.

Ive cleared back there like 6 different times now and failed / been locked out after 2 tries or so. If anyone has done this and won please chime in. Not sure if im missing something obvious or what but im tired of clearing the damn thing only to have to do it after one or 2 tries.

My friends and I boxed in this mission, Bard & Shammy, Cleric & Necro, War & Druid; all level 80.

We went into the room where the explosives cache were at. Bard lighted up the fuse while war was guarding the entrance. Mobs came in one by one, war used disc, Rampage and AE taunt :p Bard tried to mezzed all the adds. Necro and Dru assisted the war on target mob, shammy slowed everything.

Towards the end, war down, druid down, shammy down, cleric down, necro FD, and this was what my bard friend did; he trained all the mobs out of the room and ran around. Mez, ran, mez, ran. mez, ran... By the time the new mob rushed into the room, it was too late, the explosives cache were destroyed. Afterwards, the room was clear and safe again, we rezzed ourselves in there and proceeded with the next step.

Last step of the mission was, Deliver 1 Bloodmoon Crystal Sample to Maria Starforge.

Whole mission took us for about an hour and a half. Rewards were either Faction or Grubby Were-Orc Claw.

We are still trying to figure out what the claws are for.

The next mission seemed to be a raid mission.

Decrepit Skeleton
# Nov 14 2007 at 8:22 AM Rating: Decent
Decrepit Skeleton (red to 75) spawned for us just north of the Wereorc camp close to Hills of Shade. He paths in front of the cave entrance almost to the mouth of the valley to HoS.

Groupable mob hits averaged 600, highs just shy of 1500 on 2480AC and maxed defensive AAs pre-SoF. Hits pretty fast even slowed. Seemed to have a little more HPs than the trash in area. Enchy said either partial or mostly successful on her slow.

The Portal spells contain a Ring, Circle and Zephyr to the Loping Plains and can be obtained from Leneanon Cloudsong at the Druid Ring in Loping Plains loc:2556, 1459.

They each cost 53 plat (at time of writing) with 358 CHA. The spells are level 75.

Druids will gain porting power to the Loping Plains, and thus closer to Bloodmoon Keep, while Wizards gain access to Dragonscale Hills, and thus Crystallos.
