Had a 50 ranger and dropped in to pay the giant shroom a visit. Pulled his little buddies out and squashed them one by one. Then I went in for the big guy himself. I started at 90% health and half mana. Things started badly but I used cancel magic to negate his buffs. Dropped a DoT on him right away and blasted away with nuke arrows when I could. He threw me around the room once in a while, but I just charged right back. Dropped him like a bad habit with 28% health (Mostly from his ds) and about 25% mana. Dropped the eye and Sapro spores. Was looking for the spell he drops for a shammy friend. Guess I'll have to go back in for a second round.

After repeatedly finding this guy camped I decide to pop in one night before going to bed just to see if he is up and Lo! there he is and even better there's no one camping him.

Needing my level 49 Pally spell "Remove Curse" (not vital, but wouldn't mind having it anyway) I decide to give him a go.

Buffed up with the usual goodies including Valor of Marr and Divine Purpose (great when ya have KEI) plus Endure Magic and Poison. Killing time... Pacified and single pulled cultists from room and then healed up for the big guy.

Knowing about his knockback, I park myself between him and the back wall and commence beating on him. Between the MR and PR buffs, bashing and chain stunning, he went down easy, and lo and behold he drops the spell and A Saprophyte Eye. Got so lucky...everytime I've seen him killed by others the spell never dropped.

My lucky day, went to bed happy.

Found this at the vendor in Fungus grove that you give the book of sales secrets to. 14pp, good price and much easier than actually fighting the blasted thing

He can't be mezzed by Dazzle or presumably lower level spells.

Found this out the hard way.

Nice item for my Bard...Reason being is that Cha is very important if you want to charm kite..Havent tried charming yet since Haarmony Dreamdiva is still only 23rd lvl and I get charm song at 27th..but either way nice ear slot for Bard or also Chanter...well good hunting and safe journey to all.

This dude whipped my 54 Chanters butt pretty quik for a dang greenie... Really something u should bring along a melee to keep its attention. He makes it really hard to cast due to his summoning... Nukes for up to 180-200 i believe. Dropped earring after being better prepared (resist gear on) to take him.

Think about it for a second...

Enchanter nukes have a very long recast delay and he probably thought he could nuke/mez, but of course this mob is impossible to mez as pointed out in another post.

In order to nuke/mez you can't have a pet up, so of course he got beat to death by the mob when he couldn't mez it (and root does no good, since it can summon).

Pet classes have a much easier time with this guy. He summons and nukes alot. I (wiz) and another wiz did him with a cleric and it almost took one of us out. Definately easier with a pet to distract it.

# Aug 23 2002 at 8:28 AM Rating: Decent
Ps. I was level 55, and the other wiz was level 57. The cleric was level 56.

Piece of Cake,

Slow, Bane of Nife, Pet attack. Sit and Med till full. (sit in room next to him, still in sight) Had pet kill the initiates afterwards, just for kicks.

He dropped Saporaphite eye, Cleric spell, and spores.

I found The Great Saphrophyte last night while looking for vendors/npcs for more pieces of the grave robbers quest.. I killed the couple boglings in the outside room but not the 4 cultists in his room. He was green and I underestimated him and thought he'd come to me but he doesnt move. I slowed all 4 cultists but my pet ended up dying, the shroom kept summoning me and nuking me like mad. I epic dot'ed him once which took him down 2/3rds or so (so hes got less than 2k hp) but he killed me.

Second fight I put on all my HP/AC/MR buffs and my resist gear and went at him again.. still didnt kill the cultists.. this time I went down faster because I was trying to cast gate instead of heal. Was pretty embarrassing.

Third fight I took it really slow and pulled the cultists out of the room and waited until i was full mana and hp and had 12 buffs and then MR debuffed him and threw 2 dot's on him and started nuking.. it still was kind of close compared to killing 2 blues in chardok at the same time.. but he died and dropped this earring. very hard for his level, approach him cautiously and be patient, but if you are well prepped he drops ok, again not a lot of HP. would rather have gotten gloves for resist gear hee hee. I think i'll kill him a few more times since he made me mad by killing me twice.

luclin has some really cool mobs and some nifty new items and spells. like in fungus grove theres this lotus that throws these hard to resist spells for 450pts over and over and over.. wipes out most people.. until a pally gets that new 6 second silence spell.. then he/she chain casts that and the guy goes down fast (lots of hp though).. I have been summoned by level 20 owl bears (hee hee) and run into lots of other cool stuff so far, and many items have +% to skills.. fun expansion

Finally, an upgrade from my opalline earrings... oh wait, anyone know anything about his lvl? I probably can't take these things yet ... oh well ...

The Bogligs con blue and light blue to me at 40, the great sap thing cons the same. I belive its about 30-32. But i could be wrong
PH for the big shroom
# Dec 06 2001 at 8:00 AM Rating: Decent
well heres some info that i think is right regarding the ph of the shroom that drops this. when you go to the murshroom room you have to go through some other boglings. these boglings are all stationary. but what some do not know is there is 1 roamer. i believe that killing this roamer triggers the spawn. the roamer can easily be found. if you are camped in the shroom room waiting for it to pop you can miss this roamer if you keep looking towards the rooms opening. he comes to it and just stays there then goes walking around again. i am not 100% certain but i think so hope this helps. by the way the gloves that it drops which is obviuosly either the rare or the uncommen is nice and the icon looks the same as a pearl necklace

I was thinking this item would be great for a bard well it would had verrant not screwed bards over in their little luclin patch
I have a couple of questions for anyone nice enough to answer
1) what type of mob is he (undead, animal etc)?
2)could a 52 cleric have a shot at killing him with a tank friend?

If anything I would say it is a "plant" mob, since it wouldn't fit under animal or undead. The Remove Curse spell is very useful since LDoN has arrived.

He also drops some gloves

Great Saprophyte
# Dec 05 2001 at 7:52 PM Rating: Good
I believe this drops from the Great Saprophyte. He's surrounded by Boglings and even though he was VERY green to my 55 druid he summoned me repeatedly and hit me with spells around 200 points in damage. He killed me and I never did go back to kill him although my Winged Death took off over 50% health. Might have to make a trip back to him soon.
All the Usual Questions
# Dec 05 2001 at 5:21 PM Rating: Decent
So, what drops this (and the level range if you know it)? Seems mighty nice for any caster or hybrid in my opinion. Also if you could say something about drop that asking too much?

This is day one. It's way too early to think drop rate. No worries though, even though this is a disquieting item I'm sure it'll be very popular with the enchanters and bards (especially since it adds AC and Cha!). I agree with you it'd be nice to know what dropped it but they may be holding onto that info until they farm a few sets. ;)
Sweet chanter item
