Can anyone confirm if the fabled is back or not? TYhe skeletons from 5th anniversary came back yesterday evenings and the fabled were also part of the 5th anniversary.

I suspect it's only the skeleton for the halloween.

Does this Sword still drop? If so i was wondering if a 53 shaman, 52 ranger, 51 warrior,and my 51 pally could handle him.

Thanks for any help!?!?!

Improved Damage works with Proc

I got a deal on a War Crested Ring, with Improved Damage IV on it, this ghoulbane now procs in the lower 300's now. Odd thing though, the ID4 doesn't seem to stack with IoN.

Make sure you have a good group together in Undead LDONS (especially if you take a hard one) with this weapon. If you have any kind of dex over 150, off-tanking isn't going to happen.

no more drop

All the fabled gear dropped temporarily during the 5th anniversary events.
Well yeah, but does the sword work?
# May 17 2004 at 4:46 PM Rating: Decent
After reading the numerous accounts of peeps successfully acquiring this weapon (GRATZ!) I've decided to talk about the weapon itself.

I've got a dorf pally (36 atm) and I acquired this weapon when he was 16. Since then the leveling has been fast and fun. When you add Bane of Nife to mix you can put the dead back into the undead quickly. Even without the procs (which I'll discuss shortly) this sword hits for up to 83 dmg. Plus for melee types it's always nice to have a weapon with AC/DEX on it.

I've been fighting on the undead side of the beach in Gunthak. With HoS and Greater Null potions (+15 DEX) my DEX is 218. I've gotten as many as four procs a fight from the Ghoulbane itself. Throw in Bane of Nife and I've had as many as five procs a fight. Two procs is all you need to assure a winning outcome but when you get three or four the fight is usually over with before you lose 6% health.

If you're a Paladin and you have one of these enjoy. If you don't then you have my condolences.

Best regards,

I am a collector of weapons and armor. That being said, I decided that this would make a nice addition to my ******** I went to Upper Guk and wandered around trying to find the room where he spawns. I hadnt been there since the Ghoulbane dropped there, probably 3 yrs ago or more. Not wanting to ruin my froggy faction, I only killed the 3 mobs in the spawn room. It took me about 6 cycles to get him to spawn. When he did spawn, since I wasnt KoS, he just stood there, allowing me to med to full and buff up. I attacked him and proceded to lay the smack down! Now my gear isnt the greatest by any means but I didnt have much trouble with him. Hit in the 2-300 range, but every stun landed, allowing me to heal up. At about 30% he used LoH on himself. I thought I was in trouble! Mana was running low! Then when he got to about 30%, he went into cleric mode and tried to heal himself over and over. This was my saving grace. Using 2H bash and my remaining mana, I was able to interrupt the rest of his heals and the Fabled Ghoulbane was mine!
On a side note, the dam/del ratio isnt the best. This weapon is suited for lower level characters mainly. By the time you can solo him, you should have WAY better DPS. ANyways, thats my story. Fun little item to sit in the bank. =)

Easy solo for a 60+ slower

Very easy solo for a 65 Beastlord. To compare him to the other fabled mobs, I'd say he's like a Fabled Ancient Cyclops with a lighter max hit, any slowing class should be able to do him with ease 60+. FYI He is light blue to a 65 and misses the majority of his attacks (Beast only has CA2 and CS1 for defensive AA's.)
Easy kill with logged to my pally to loot. Insane weapon for LDON missions with a lot of undead. 1 Proc at lvl 28 takes about 60-70% off of a normal undead LDON mob.

If you EVER plan to roll a Pali, do it NOW and get this. Beg, plead, change guilds, whatever it takes. . .but get this wep.

At 30, fights in undead LDoN's last too short for the Rogue to even get in possition to backstab. It's amazing.

Raelly nice.. I want one of these for my paladin.. Sadly hes only 36 =(
easy as pie

took my 65 monk down there and alt level 1 pally to twink, after 2 Ph he popped, munky beat him down in no time and ended the fight at 92% hp. One of the easier fabled mobs IMO. he maxed hit for 172, but monk is elemental so your experience may vary.
Easy kill

This guys was not camped and was up as soon as me (55 Shm) and my friend (50 pally) showed up. Fight was pretty easy. Went like this:

I made pet and fully buffed and hasted both pet and pally. Pally buffed himself and my pet with his pally buffs. The Mob had 2 froglok shaman on either side of him that were buffing him. So i opended the fight with Annul magic to get rid of his buffs. Then I landed root followed by Malise line (-60 sv verses mag pos dis cold fire) then Turgur's (75% slow). Pet and pally were sent in. The green shammy frokloks did not agro BUT they did start to heal the Fabled guy so I immediately sent my pet after them. They were about level 25 and wen down very fast. In hindsight I would have sent my pet after them first. The pally and fabled mob were about even at 50% health and I figured that he and the pet has sufficient agro and started to dot him up with Envenomed Bolt and Anethema (about 2700 worth of Dot with my Burning affliction item). I then put two superior heals on the pally assuming some sort of Enrage was coming. Mob looked like he was trying to heal himself at around 10% but I droped a 783 ice DD on him and it was over. Overall a pretty easy fight, but I could see how this could go very badly without a slow as we did see double hits in the 250-300 range. BTW, unlike most of the other fabled item, this item did not get a level requirement nerf applied to it and is rarely camped, so your low level twinks will be in good shape!
Ghoullbane's mine
# Mar 30 2004 at 8:35 AM Rating: Default
Took this Mob down last night. Was a pushover for my 65 Shammy. Sicked the Dog on him, cast slow , added 2 dots and he was down in about 30seconds. Weapon was nice for my 26 Pally I had camped there to loot the corpse. I took one hit for 216 before mob went down. The Fabled popped after clearing spawn room 3 or 4 times so about 30 minutes I would guess. Goodluck to all who go after this weapon, I know my Pally will enjoy it.If anyone knows what level it procs at I would love to know.

Oh yea, then slow and the beat him silly. Drop his buffs as soon as possible.

FINALLY dropped the guy after 20+ placeholders (broken up over 3-4 days). A kind 62 enchanter gave me a hand and we took him down. Once dispelled and slowed he's a pushover, still doubt I could have done it solo.

Saw a 65 bard make a pass at him a few days before and he got killed in less than 1 minute. So be careful.

Fabled Ghoulbane
# Mar 29 2004 at 9:11 AM Rating: Default
My guild had 4 Pally's get this item yesterday. They were all in their mid 30's. Out group consisted of 5 Pally's and me, a Cleric. Four of the Pally's were guildies of mine. We camped the location (room 17 on the EQ Atlas map for the better part of the day). The Fabled Shin Lord pops about every 5 spawn cycles (2hrs), but then pops twice in quick succession (20 minutes!) The Pally's all cornered him. The first time was the hardest, but by the time the 5th Pally was going for his FGB it was an all out slaughter. I hardly had to heal at all. Eveyone is very happy with there new FGB.

Saw this on the fabled list yesterday and HAD to have it. Once the login server straightened out and I could get on, i went about tryin to find my way through that mess of a zone called Upper Guk. Saw someone stuck on the ladder, said "hi" and went on my way looking for the spawn spot. Finally found it after 30-45 mins of wandering around.

Once in area 17 on the eq atlas map, it is the second room on your left. You'll know it by the little chairs in the room and it also has a fake wall to the back of the room on the rightside.

Once i found it, then the excitement started. The only people there was a 58 pally, and me (43 pally). After sitting for 1 1/2 hours in the wrong room with this 58 pally. Killing the wrong spawn, he left. I knew i couldn't do it alone, so i logged onto alt and started trying to round up favors. A 53 pally in PoK wanted to come help, but once back in LG he got stuck on the ladder. I went to try and help him (DON'T DUEL YOUR BUDDYS ON THE LADDER IF THEY ARE STUCK), so now we were both stuck. Then some other guy comming through got stuck. We're all petitioning, and about 15 mins later a GM shows up and had to summon us all out of ladder shaft. More help showed up but couldn't find the way, so i worked my way back to entrance only to find two more friends and another GM waiting on me. Got them too room and GM to messed up ladder shaft *BTW i think he got stuck and had to work a little GM magic to get out. We camped the wrong room (1st room on left) for 4 spawns, but we were randomly killing all the other frogs in the area. While killing, the necro with us found the fabled popped in the room next to us. The room i stated earlier in the post. We buffed up, there was a 51 pally with 2.9K HP, 43 Pally with 2.4K HP, 44 Necro, and a 64 Druid healing. It conned yellow to me and the necro and LB to the Druid. He never cast anything that i saw, battle lasted about 1 min give or take a few seconds. The two pallys just flopped aggro which gave the druid time to heal. I believe he used 2 CH's on me and 2 CH's on the 51 pally at about 30% health. We just sat down and was getting settled in for the next spawn wait and a second fabled popped. I was taking a little off guard but we all responded fast and the damage he did was minimized. The tanks contained him in a corner and let the casters do their work. He dropped again in about the same amount of time. Not sure what weapon other pally using, but i swing a Longblade of Vitality.

oh..and 2 more toons got stuck on the ladder looking for spawn site. So just be prepared to petition.

Good luck
Great Drop

This weapon was well worth my 56 minute wait. There was 2 other groups in the zone consisting of high level paladins and a healer. I had 3 high level guildies with me just for fun and we took him out in about 30 seconds. He did quite a lot of damage surprisingly, he hit me double hits 225 about 6 times. Did not resist much as I recall and did not cast a single spell. I now have this equipped on my paladin and have been doing butcherblock Ldons and I kick ***. I do double hit 80's and plus the 273 damage and 200 some mroe with Rodcet Nife. Was a fun experience and I wish they would keep Fabled forever.

65 wiz with paladin alt here. I critted for 6125 damage, then threw another quick 3k into the mix and he was down. Hit me for 234 damage total. Was an easy fight.

Thanks for the obvious. I owned a hill giant just the other day, they are such an easy fight.

Maybe reference your fight with regards to how tough this mob would be to someone whom it actually cons blue to?

I just walked into the room with The Fabled Froglok Shinlord, and a group was killing him. I asked them how long the list is, and they asked me if I am a paladin, I said yes, and they said grats its yours, they didnt have a paladin there. So I am the proud owner of this fine weapon! So I guess this guy is not too camped. Well atleast nothing compared to the 30+ hours for the fabled jboots.
awesome sword
# Mar 20 2004 at 4:07 AM Rating: Decent
I was camping the fg/lord/exe with raid group with my 55 war when a member said that the shin ghoul lord was up in upper Guk. Holy Crap! I shouted because my 55 paly was camped at the ent to upper guk. I ran him over to lord (got lost for like 15 min. that place sucks) and there he was! I medded up and the attacked and got my butt handed to me. Realizing I might not be able to do this without some better buffs then my wimpy paly ones, I got virtue and focus of the 7th, ran back down there, and he was still there with 100% life. I got my stuff, medded to full and decided this time to load up all my stuns. A couple of minutes later, I am holding my new Fabled GhoulBane. Awesome upgrade for undead slaying.
