Spawned in the southeastern room of the coliseum loop, right where the red dot shows in the pictures. Started pathing west, towards the arena itself. Did not kill any of the hynids or yunjo as I was doing laps, though they may also be a placeholder.

There are roamers that enter the coliseum from each of the side tunnels. They come to kill a few slaves, then they exit and despawn. They can be named or a PH. There are other static PHs, but the Reluntant Gladiator is one of these.

It used to be that the named didn't summon and were easily soloable by any kiting class. But they changed that a few patches ago. None of the normal mobs summon here, but all of the named do.

In five kills Ive had

2 back slots
1 hand slot
2 arm slots.

So, are the armguards his uncommon or his rare?

In any case, this mob is totally soloable by a necro. Just snare and aggro kite him around the rubble. Probably also quite root-rotable.

Edit: this guy buffs the golem guards when he comes in, and if you FD after engaging him hell heal himself little by little. Maybe hes a paladin?

Killed him 8-9 times dropped Gloves twice, 6 flowing argil and arms once. Of course bad luck is always a factor but I'd guess arms are high rare or I'm just mad unlucky

I've used him as WTD pet and he appears to cast some stuff, but then again every mob in zone has some sort of power except the nocs.

I recommend for killing him waiting till he engages a slave, then rooting then snare. Snare seems to get resisted alot here, root not as much. Snare tends to **** them off enough to run at you, while it generally takes 2-3 root resists for them to notice me if they are busy killing a slave.

Regular PHs don't summon, I haven't had the luck to get a named to spawn yet so I can't tell you if they summon or not.

The Reluctant Gladiator is soloable. He's snarable and does not summon though he does have decent resists so it's risky. You have some room in the arena to kite him around the fallen pillars in the center. He could probably be root rotted too if you don't get too many resists.

He wanders up into the arena to beat up on the prisoners, so if you wait for him to go up there its easy to single. Seeing as prisoners shouldnt be kos.

Max hits in the 900's from what I saw, but i tanked him no problem as a 65 beastlord. Slow landed for full btw.

Fought this mob last night, it's not 67. Was blue at 65.

I also can verify this. We tried to pull this guy several times but he kept disappearing and we were having a hard time getting him single. I can confirm however that this guy isn't lvl 67. He was blue to me at 63 as well. Hope this clears up some of the confusion.
