They must have changed it...

I was bored and hanging out in Kurn's so I decided to do the cook quest with my 53 necro. After reading all the posts here, I got all prepared for a big fight for this thing.

I started clearing the pit near kurn's and one spawns at night, so I pulled it from a distance with darkness and stacked a few dots on it. It died before my pet could even get to it. Another one just aggroed me as I was typing this and my pet smacked it down without it even hurting me.

Maybe they toned it down a bit. It might be out of range for level 14, but it's not as tough as everyone seems to be making out. I sure didn't have to kite it all over the zone. Maybe I just got lucky and found the two weakest ones?
no biggie

these thinks have a ton of hp, like 8k or something like that. They are a major undercon. Maybe they have fixed them, but I know first time I found one it killed me at level 15 before I had time to do anything.

They must have fixed it with one of the last patches. My level 17 magician killed it yesterday without any problem. Not more hp than any other darkblue mob in this area.
they hold a grudge

Just to make things more interesting it procs Disease Cloud. PROCS not Casts.

I fought him with a Beserker of 8th level for a laugh fully expecting to die. I lasted about 5 minutes but he procd disease cloud 4 times on me.

No it was not a Burnyai or any other mob.

YES I was buffed to the gills.

The reason why I did this is:
1. I needed a mana free TL to my bind point to get skills.
2. I love a challenge. Got him to 35%.
Undead Baby Drogmars?

Are you guys sure these guys are that tough? Cause I was doing the skeleton cooks quest by getting a bone chip, two zombie flesh, and a slat minow, I came out of the tower to find these lil guys, I saw two of these lil fellas and pulled both of them to ramp, these guys only hitted me for 25-35 dmg, was beating the crap out of them easily, but they retreat way too early, whenever their health was at 50% they retreat. My char is a 35 monk, piece of cake to me. looted their flesh and was on my way. I was wondering if these lil guys are undead baby drogmars. Anyone have a clue how they got onto FOB? Never seen them before until now.

Are you guys serious? Level 35 monk or 27 rogue may have problems with this? It's listed as level 14. I have an 11 druid alt in the Field of Bone right now so if I see one of these guys maybe I'll leave it alone for now!! Is this a major undercon or something, I haven't seen or tried to fight one yet?

Yes, but your class is melee, as with me, SK's are a hybrid between casters and melee. All the other people that have posted about this mob have said they tried to take it on with a caster. I'm sure a Monk or Berserker would have no trouble with one of these, seeing as how their STR and STA ar through the roof pretty much =P As with mine, his STR at the time was only 137 =\ and his STA was only 107 =(. Not bad for a SK though. A SK of that lvl though. I've got an all melee class. lvl 26 Rogue. Would it be able to go against this thing? I mean, if I use my Backstab too? Just wondering.

I ran into one once. It was green to me, so I figure why not. I was lvl 31 at the time. I hit it with Harm Touch, that did about 398 damage to him... But it only took him down by 2% 0_o. What's with this thing?!? it's lvl 14, but has over 3k hp's?!? WHAT FOR?!? What's the point in giving a low lvl mob that many hit points in a low lvl area. Granted it's only lvl 14, and a quest mob, but it shouldn't be that hard to kill. By the way... It killed me when I tried to run. I had over 1k hp's at the time, but it kept stunning me! What's the deal? What's the point in making it a low lvl mob anyway? Why not up it's lvl to something like mid 40 to low 50? That would be more fitting, but make it a place holder for some raid mob. Up it's damage too. mobs of those levels have lots of HP, hit hard, but can be taken down fairly easy with the right people in a group. I think the reason that such high lvl ppl are having such a hard time with this, is because they don't expect a mob that low to give them trouble at all.

They must have just recently changed this mob.. I see posts from Jan of '04 talking about how hard he is.
Level 17 SK saw him, thought he looked fun. Dark blue con.. pulled, and engaged. Sure.. he hit a little faster than the rest.. but still didn't do over 24 dmg per hit. Dropped him as easily as anything else, and looted the zombie flesh.

Perhaps they changed him in the Feb 10 patch, after all the complaints?

I also ran into one that conned even at 17, and he cast Disease Cloud on me twice during fight. Still wasn't hard to kill.. and I killed several of these tonight.

I had thought I came up with the perfect strategy to kill these things: charm and have it kill everything in sight right? The perfect killing machine! Once it had a few thousand less HP, break charm and finish it right? My level 20 chanter was able to charm it easily, but for some reason it would not take hits from nor give hits to any mobs. The only result was to have the 100% healthy mobs all aggro on me when charm broke (plus the flesh render). Wasted tons of mana on mezzes and mind wipes to escape. Anyone else try this? Is there some EQ rule for charming mad undercons?

This mob is just plain messed up.
I tool around with a 65 monk so killing it is no problem. But the HP are unacceptable for the area it is in. Add the fact that it runs at 50pct HP and it becomes a disaster waiting to train.

One more discrepancy - Monk Finishing Blow occurred at 35pct. This ability only supposed to work when mob is running and below 10pct HP.

A pally 56 should not take minutes to kill a 14th lvl mob but thats the way it happened - serious amount of hp in region of 4k according to parser and hits for 60+ even with 1100+ ac

Damn, FoB used to be a good zone to level up the new toon, but not anymore. Not at least while this thing is around.
This is way to tough a mob for this zone.

Come on SOE, lower this guys hps. He's way too tough for this area.
# Jan 21 2004 at 12:31 AM Rating: Decent
Sure, it's a tough mob. Sure, it's 'real' level is probably up in the 30s. Sure, it has god-like hitpoints.

It's not a walk in the park. I just died to it. It conned dark blue. I came here to look up it's stats and by the time I got back to my window, I was dead. My character is only slightly twinked, but he died in less than a minute.

I, however, have only seen two of these mobs _ever_. One was the one that killed me while the other was a short distance from the first when I pulled it in my arrogance. ;) I certainly don't think it ruined a newbie zone. I'm sure many people never even notice it.

I might complain, except that it's a quest-mob, and it appears that SoE wants this mob partied. I'm sure a sizeable 17-20-ish group could kill it, with time, but I do think it should have its level modified to betray its power.
Lots of hit points...

This guy just jumped my 52 Rog.

He ws hitting me for 30-60<, I had to throw on my regen gear (while I was 2-4X it for 50-70).

He ran with 50% left so I was able to backstab it, got in 6 or 7 backstabs ranging from 250-400.

Hmm, even 6 backstabs at 250 that's 1500 hot points, at 50%, that means 3K at 100%, and that's not including all the stabs and slices I did for 30-70.

So I could easily say he had 4-4.5K hit points (very high for a level 14).

And during the fight I agro'd about half a dozen scorpions and a few skellies (all easy kills).

Dropped rotting flesh.

Interesting MOB...

I was recovering a lowbie's corpse in FoB near the big dragon skull when this thing jumped my 43 necro. It was green but was biting me for 50 points a hit! Pet went to work on it and it was actually working my skellie down until I had three dots on it and augmented my pet (I wasn't prepared for a serious threat!). Has a HUGE amount of HPs. When it was halfway down, it started to run away though. It made it from the skull to to the ramp leading up the tower before it keeled over! Dropped "Zombie Flesh" :


--Napalmo Fusionfire (59 wizard)
--Pigironpete (53 paladin)
--Taystlyk Chickyn (43 necro)

NOT 14
# Dec 24 2003 at 9:27 PM Rating: Decent
Hate ta say it, but this nasty is NOT level 14. Was hunting with my 15 monk, and he conned yellow. He hits for 60+, but IS slow. His biggest danger lies in the fact that he has an ungodly number of HPs, though. We did well over 200 damage to it, and it finally dropped 1%. Either it regens amazingly fast, or it has a few thousand HPs.
Rotting Flesh Hunter
# Dec 22 2003 at 8:23 AM Rating: Decent
We ran into this bad boy Saturday Night. A group of 5 level 12-18's. Our Monk pulled him in thinking an easy yellow kill! WRONG!!! He killed everyone of us at least once. We all ran like crazy for the POK to zone out. We'd return pick up our equipment from our corpses and he would seem to be gone. Then BANG! Right when you had gone back to regular hunting the SOB would show up and in seconds someone was dead.

He may con a level 14 MOB, but he most definitely isn't. I described the beast to a friend of mine and she said it is a special Quest MOB...Any comments to back this up?

Doesn't belong...

As a level 62 Necro, I walked into FoB to test out my new primary in melee. Two of these aggro'd me, so being cocky I grinned and started casting ToM, didn't even phase them. As I had no combat spells memmed but lifetap, I fd'd, only to have one of them reaggro when I stood up. So I feigned again, and memmed my spells.

I grabbed the first one I saw with Dooming, then FPoK, and TWO SK's later he stood there at 0pct health, still alive. I melee'd him with one 30dmg hit to finish him off. My math skills suck, but that's somewhere around 6280dmg done.

For a level 14 mob in a newbie zone, this makes no sense. Either he is bugged (more than likely) or sony is getting extremely lazy in their game design (likely as well.) Either way, the mob needs to be downgraded or moved to another location. (Tangrin's island, perhaps?)

I ran into this guy last night while collecting bone chips for a friend.. Ouch... I haven't been nailed by a green that bad in a long time. Now here's my question. I've lvl'd several characters in FOB.. and this is the first time I've seen it. Does it only spawn at night, do you have to kill a place holder for it to spawn... any further info would be greatly appercaited...
