This slime and the other 2 (semi) named slimes ('a putrid pile of flesh' and 'a pile of swamp bile') in PoDisease have a chance to drop Etheral Parchments.

From my countless hours of being in PoDisease and killing these off when they are up, I'd say the order of Eth Parch drop rate is:
'a pile of swamp bile': common, almost all the time.
'a putrid pile of flesh': uncommon, maybe 1 out of 3 kills.
'Rankle': rare, perhaps 1 out of 5 kills

You must be very lucky then because I've killed quite a few of these and never once seen an Etheral Parchment drop.

In fact the entire zone is patheticly bad for loot. Especially considering the difficulty of the mobs.

I have not seen this "Rankle" though.

The drop rate may have been nerfed since his post. Its been nearly a dang year inbetween your post and his.

I killed this fella in a rather tricky solo fight. Saw him up and I think "Oh, a named! And he's dark blue (I was 55)." So I decide as a druid that my best shot to take him is to charm the rat next to him and have my pet wear him down as I dot. Unfortunately, it was a pestilent rat that was too high for my Call of Karana spell, and I ended up with aggro from both of them. I tried root-rotting for a bit, but even with KEI that was going to leave me OOM before the fight was over. Then I noticed another little rat hanging around. . . I had enough mana to charm him and send him against Rankle while I focused on keeping everything rooted and NOT killing me. The buffed rat took out the weakened Rankle and I was rewarded with an empty loot window.
I was really hoping for my first parchment, but I'll settle for the satisfaction having taken my first named solo in the planes.

I just had round 2 with Rankle. This time I was level 56 and so was he. I was much better prepared for this fight and the only tricky thing was pulling him from a mass of other goos and rats, but somehow I weaved through with no adds.
I charmed a feeble rat to wear him down to 33%, then root-rotted him the rest of the way down.

Again, the stingy so-and-so didn't drop anything.

Oh well.

Conned DB to a 55 druid. Easy kill with charmed rat. Dropped some sort of bile.

Heh, there's no use in looking for this guy. I've seen regular orange goos that have like 25% more hps than the rest and every time I kill one it drops a parchment. I don't even see why they put him in the game unless he drops a quest item or at least some kind of good equipment, he's rare enough to be dropping something at least.

dropped parchment

He popped near the bone wall, I solo'd him by hate kiting with scoriae and a charmed rat. After a sunder every scoriae hit for full 688, dropping him about 4% each time so you can estimate his hp's. Enraged and almost ate my poor rat :(

Saw him today, yellow to me at 55. Assumed 56. Did enrage, didn't summon. Took him down with a buffed/charmed diseased rat. Dropped parch.

Biggest gimp I've ever seen. Dropped Etheral Parchment.

I can't see them making a parchment dropping mob *this* easy...the level has gotta be off or something, as its HP is rediculously low!

A bunch of easy mobs around 54 and such drop etheral parchments such as the wraiths in PoN and I think I've gotten them off gyrating goos and rats in PoD before.

Hmm. . . Clannad? Named after the Irish band?

Good music, too bad more people don't know about 'em.

he popped in spider caves looked like a bubonian. Hit for 400 or so, when killed says, rythar, why didnt you help?
RE: hmm
# Feb 08 2003 at 3:10 PM Rating: Default
You are thinking about Relak not this guy, this guy doesn't pop in caves. And the guy he was talking about, probably Rythrak, another named rat in cave.
