This guy has no normal PH that we could find. Arrived in NK and he was already up. Killed him with 2 65 BST and a 49 Ranger tanking. One cleric for healing. After that we went around killing every griff in the zone. Finally popped after an hour and a half. Killed him and another spawned. Took him down and another spawned again. We picked up 4 vambrances in 2 hours. Was immune to fear and snare. All in all, a very easy kill for a very nice item.
Easy Kill

Killed him 5 times today to equip some guild alts. Easily slowed , and hit for max of 538 that I saw. Did with 65 Shammy, 2 63 SK's and a 63 Bst. was really over kill fight lasted about 1 minute. last 3 times killed with one less SK but still over kill could have done with shammy and any one of the above and maybe even soloed it. got all the kills in about 3 hours total.

Did this with my 62 shammy and my 64 ranger, dog tanked until it ate enrage - not too difficult a fight once slowed.
Found in N. Karana

This doesnt drop off anyone in S. Karana, it dropped off a fabled Griffon in N. Karana. Took a group to kill it, waxed my 56 rogue when just running by it. Nice stats, but the vambraces in BB ldon are better.

I just pulled him with my 60 Druid, Slowed him with my 65 Chanter and chanter pet took him down. Of course I had to keep SE on PET and Weaken Grimfeather... But not too bad at all. Grats newbie lvl 17 SHD Who I called to come loot arms....

Me (61 Druid) and friends (61 Druid 63 Warrior) cleared NK for several hours didn't spawn.

After yesterdays marathon patch (23 March 2003) he was up.

Came back with a few guildies, he dropped the arms, then he spawned straight away, 2 kills, no waiting, 2 sets of arms for 2 bard alts (mine and guild leaders) :).

The Fabled Grimfeather is now spawning, and spawning, and spawning...

We popped into North Karana (NOT South Karana) last night 3/23/2004 and he was up. He was lvl 55 and hit in the 300 range with no disc usage. He summons, is immune to changes in his run speed and partially slowable. We dropped him easily with a group of 5 (War/Cle/Rog/Shm/Dru). It was truly no contest.

Then the fun started. He immediately spawned again, and again and again. He spawned 3 consecutive times after the initial kill. Grats arms to 4 twinks =)

Since they changed Fabled mob levels, The Fabled Grimfeather can NOT be fear-kited. He's too high level to fear with the Ranger "Panic Animal" spell.

He can't be snared either. I found that out the hard way.
error in zone ?
# Mar 22 2004 at 6:39 PM Rating: Decent
i saw him only in north karan not south
RE: error in zone ?
# Mar 23 2004 at 7:46 PM Rating: Decent
Of course you are right. He appears in Northkarana, as the original Grimfeather does.

Knocked me down today with 500+ DMG, snare/root resistet (not immune I think) and faster then SoW. Had no chance, though he conned green to my 62 Ranger.
Does this exist on live servers

I have killed over five normal GrimFeathers and two SilverGriffons and have yet to see the Fabled Version Spawn. Can anyone confirm if mob exists on live servers? Killed Fabled Proon twice and got fabled lambent off him on both kills.

I have been told that Fabled Grimfeather is ultra rare. I go from the top of zone to the bottom killing every griff that pops up on track and a good number of mobs that just cross my path and have yet to spwan him. I dont even keep track of the Silver or Grimfeathers i kill anymore. I thought it would be good arms for my twink pally but i may just go farm kael after all the time without a spawn ~.

hmm...thanks for info. Doesn't seem to be much on this mob. I've spent about 10hours in nk so far with two trackers and haven't seen it spawn. Good luck to anyone camping this mob.
Another mob drops it

Also dropped from The Fabled Proon in EK.

Hit for 451, can't be snared or rooted, and summoned at 96% health.

I don't this information is correct. We killed the Fabled Proon twice last night and both times he dropped the Fabled Lambent Vambraces. According to Lucy, the item lore on the Crafted is "Crafted from the remains of a strong griffon", which would indicate that these only drop from Grimfeather as stated below.

This drops off fabled grimfeather hits for 1400 flurrys immune to root/snare and summons like crazy.

hits for 1400 flurrys

killed him twice tonight, so first hand info telling me he does NOT hit for 1400 or flurry.

He hits for 580ish max, enraged at low hp.

They bumped up his level I'm guessing, he had a 30min corpse and so did proon (proon was green first time I killed him and today he was blue).

Any info on mob, can it be snared or rooted? does it summon, how hard does it hit for, etc etc

"None" is not true.

It depends on the mob. If they are the low level Fabled, they can be rooted.

I rooted Goonda just fine.
