very nice snare.

This and the fabled bone dirk from Lguk dual wield nice on a rogue. The two dots stack and snare is a done deal with them both.

Makes a nice snare for a war in some situations. Exp grind is nice when mob is low HP and turns while snared, saves your cleric mana. The -20 save to magic makes this a good one for places like MPG.

This proc is normally the shadowknight 61 pop snare spell

he's talking about the resist check on the snare spell as being a -20MR check, not the stats on the item

Pardon me, folks,

I have been camping North wing for 2 nights already. Never seen a Fabled Crypt Devourer but The Crypt Devourer popped twice rather ( which dropped Obtenebrate Short Sword ).

Am I camping at the right place? Or is it just a really rare spawn please?

Moreover, is it possible for me to solo this Fabled please?

Thank you in advance.

We killed The Fabled Crypt Wurm tonight on Karana Server.
It was roaming 1st hall in West wing at our 2nd turn.
It dropped this Sword. So, my alt ROG is happy but need some more levels to use it.

Thank you for the info.

Got the sword from Fabled Crypt Wurm just like you mentioned.
With no healer, just my 50% slow proc, a 70 Mage friend and I managed to kill it.
My health was down to 3% ( about 300+HP ) left after the fight. LOL.

Thanks again!

I find myself scavenging all over killing stuff and chasing them down. This makes it all less hassle since they turn at low health and my Finishing Blow AA 32k hit spanks em. Wish I had this while doing lucid shards for VT key.

I hope ya didn't get this off the fabled feaster cause he drops the fabled steel flint dagger ( wrong name but on the right track ) this sword ( if ya really go tthis one ) drops off the fabled crypt devoyer I am looking for that feaster on CT server and yet to see him but killed a few of the fabled mobs there
drop info

what wing does the mob spawn in ... I'd really like one
# Mar 19 2005 at 3:31 AM Rating: Good
I would imagine this would make a keen warrior weapon. I play a SK and one cast of Festering Darkness is enough to steal/hold aggro from anyone. I don't know what the taunt-ratio-thingy you get from a BoC is, but I bet this is just as good if not better.

Only problem with it is on a raid, DoTs break mez.

Would be good for a group situation as a snare if you cannot find one. Cool weapon all in all.

I may have to grab one for myself.

Weapon swings break mez too...

Just saying. Given that we can assume that any tank using this for agro generation on a raid is *also* probably tanking a mob that is not going to be mezzed, it's somewhat of a moot point. It's really far more likely to ***** up groups, since you are much more likely to need to switch targets after engagement.

Weapon HITS break mezzes... if you swing and miss, the mob's still mezzed... just saying.

This is a great tool... a decent lasting damaging snare that causes major aggro. Might not be a grouping Rogue's preference, but I'm sure they'd put great use to it situationally.
