Don't tell Stanos that you killed Renux...

You say, 'I killed Renux.'

Stanos Herkanor says, 'You killed Renux? You stupid git of a dog! Renux was my best work, a killer without peer, without remorse. All I did to her, I did for a reason, and it made her matchless. Ravens take your eyes! All you needed to do was gather evidence. When Hanns' believed me, Renux would follow. A hollow victory, it seems. I suppose you had to do it, but I imagine it cost you in the process. When this is over, perhaps you and I shall have a reckoning.'

Stanos Herkanor says, 'I will kill you and your lickspittle friends for this!'

Your faction standing with Highpass Guards has been adjusted by -500.

...And then Stanos and everyone around him proceeded to beat the snot out of me. That -500 made me KoS to the Highpass Guards, which included Stanos and all his friends. I didn't see anything about this dialogue anywhere, so I wanted to see if he would respond to you having killed his daughter. He does. lol.

Anson, Stanos and the other smugglers are on the Highpass Guard faction.
Not on the Circle of Unseen Hands faction even that they seem to be members of it.

Camped my rogue at Stanos and summoned him right as my camp out timer was at 5 seconds. Logged in another character to take him out so the rogue could loot his head for the mask quest line. I am not sure if this is how it has always been, but when I agro'd Stanos everyone joined in the fight. And by everyone, I mean everyone. Every smuggler including all the named smugglers and any other character in the zone on the same faction. They all came running and got there immediately as if they were summoned. There were characters in that room I have not seen before. There were so many that they could not get to me to fight me so they gathered around the back of Stanos as if to wait their turn to fight me if he died. I had about 7 or 8 directly hitting me and another 15 standing around. After Stanos died I ran out of the room and faded (bard). I then sat back and watched the mob of mobs slowly make their way back to their spots. Some were close by, others were going through the walls of the caves to get back to their spots.

They were all lower level than Stanos, but if you decide to do this with a rogue, and cannot run to zone and have to kill them all you will get a ton of faction hits. Be prepared with a character that can get out of there or feign.
stanos' head
# Feb 01 2013 at 11:12 AM Rating: Default
You can repop stanos instantly if he doesn't drop the head, just don't kill anson.

Took me 3 kills to get the head. Was fairly simple. Obviously, don't kill him on your rogue, use another character, The faction hits are very big.

Killing him has some serious faction hits with it... I killed him twice (got the head the second time), and went from apprehensive with the guards to scowling, and dubious with the smugglers/Anson to scowling.

I'm almost finished with my rogue epic and all I have left is the the turn in of the c quill, jd dagger, and gen pouch. Went to Stanos in HH and he and his goons tagged up on me. When I went to him before, I wasn't KOS to him. Now I am. Need guidance to try and turn in. Do I shroud or get a magic class to summon him as I turn in and sneak and hide?

Well I had a mage friend assist me with this so I didn't FUBR my faction with Stanos. I spawned him, let the mages pet kill Stanos, and well afterwards I went to loot and well, Stanos was apparently lacking his head... It was not looted by anyone else..does he have a chance of not droppnig his head,as odd as that sounds?

Killed him yesterday and he didn't drop his head.

He is MUCH tougher than he looks and highly resistant
to spells.

He dropped two Mithril Daggers and human parts

Ragebringer or Guise of the Coercer
# Jan 29 2008 at 1:36 PM Rating: Decent
It appears that you can't play both sides.

I thought I looked up everything I needed to know when I was working on Ragebringer for my baby rogue. I had the robes and everything else ... all I needed was to kill the general. I also lopped off Stanos' head to play both sides and get the Guise of the Coercer while I was at it. So I clear the dark elf cabin, do the secret handshake with the coercer, and spawn the general. I hand him Stanos' head before I slaughter him. Then General V'ghera DESPAWNS! Sure I got the mask... but now I'm back to pickpocketing again. LOL.

Ok, I tried soloing him - got him to 38% health, but had to zone with 8% hp left. Tried douing him, with no better result. But I finally got him today with the help of three guildies.

1) Spawn Stanos by saying to Anson, "I need to see Stanos".
2) Aggro Stanos by using Assassin's Feint.
3) Run off cliff by High Pass Hold.

The first three attempts, I tried to tank him at the High Pass Hold zone line.

First attempt - burned Assassin's Discipline II, Blinding Speed Discipline and had to zone with Stanos at 38%, me at 8%. Adds were Anson McBale and Cylra, the rogue GM.

Second attempt - with bot lvl75 shaman, ended with a dead rogue and almost dead shaman. Used Lithe Discipline II on rogue, while trying to slow the mobs with shaman bot. Adds were Anson McBale and Cylra, the rogue GM. All three mobs seemed to be unslowable.

Third attempt - with bot lvl75 shaman and a lvl75 enchanter guildmate, end with dead rogue, dead shaman and dead enchanter. Used Lithe Discipline II on rogue. Adds were Anson McBale and Cylra. Enchanter was able to mez Anson and Cylra, but mez never lasted more then 30 seconds. Enchanter confirmed that slow was not sticking even after tash.

Fourth attempt - with lvl75 shaman (not bot'ed), lvl75 enchanter, lvl75 cleric and lvl75 rogue. Spawned Stanos, ran to Kithicor zone line - no adds (not sure if they got hung up on the terrain or not). Shaman and cleric used short quick heals and HoT's to keep rogue up, used Assassin's Discipline II and Blinding Speed Discipline. Stanos was dead in about 60 seconds - HAD HEAD ON HIM.

Now to clear the DE house in Kithicor of all DE's but one for the turn-ins.

How do u spawn him?
Im a rouge and i just started my epic quest.
# Oct 25 2007 at 7:33 AM Rating: Decent
You can spawn him by talking to Anson. Say "speak to Stanos" and he'll pop. Do your top and bottom page hand in's and he despawns after giving you the combined pages back.

Solo'd Stanos few days ago for head

spawned him, pulled with mrylokers gloves from max distance, was able to hide while casting and give myself a head start. trained him to the ZL of kithicor forest, waited for him to get there and escaped. proceeded to hail him for abit but it didnt work to good, so i hid up and razorarch'd him stepped in with counterstrike disc, when that dropped i used assassin discRK2, by that time was a few light blue adds on me / anson mcbiel and a few others from the rogue area. Assassin Disc dropped so used blinding speed disc and finished stanos off with 20% hp's left and activated Tumble and zoned out. came back and looted head.

used self buffs only, shield of maelin, fire element, tacvi ice dmg shield shoulders, FoE-3, orb of duskmold, miraculous visions, aura of rage, fungeral regrouth.

75 Warrior and 75 Cleric, our tactic was to pull him with hate agro from combat abilities so he wouldnt summon while bringing him to Kith ZL. Once we got there Warrior let his Hps drop to Furious and ate up Stanos. Afterwards i patched a heal. Was way to easy. He dropped head on first go. Logged Rogue..

*note* Loot time was 30 mins :)
very difficult

For helluvit and because I was not having luck getting folks willing to go for something as trivial as this... I decided to try Stanos solo for his Head. Simply spawn and smack him right where he popped. Scoundrell, 75 Rogue, full buffed, 14.3khp, 2.2kac, 2.0 and 967 AAs... Didnt expect too much but what the heck I say... I had Expedient Recovery up for a 100% xp rez if needed.

I hit Coldain ring for a wee DS, summoned a Stoic Wolf from my Direwolf Totem of Battle for extra double attack and regen, drank a Scoriae Bite poison, had regen potions avail, and all discs avail. Summoned Stanos and rehid.

Hit Daggerfall II, BS'd him, hit Lithe Rk II, Twisted Shank, clicked 2.0, drank a regen pot ... and let the fun start. Was hoping to drill through his HP faster than he could call for all his buddies. Not so. Got him down to 75% with me at 30% and maybe 25-30 mobs around me that he called and more walking up. Escaped and gave Stanos a rude gesture.

With a hailer avail at a zone line, I can pull him to zone, hailer keeps him there, I zone out and back. Then engage when adds all gone. Will try this later and see if his radius of calling for help wont reach so far.

ok let me reconfirm, you must be 51 to SPAWN this dude, you can have some one with faction do it. sorry about that

Hmmm...Unless they changed it recentily, no you don't. I not only spawned him, but did everything on my epic but the final turn in (Not because I couldn't, but I dinged before I got the items for it) at level 50, and the first time I spawned him, I was indifferent with Anson. On the other hand, I'm a rogue, so maybe we can spawn him when ever...Or maybe EQ just hates you, who knows?

Just a few things I've learned that might help. When he does zone wide call, mobs don't agro you, they walk (not run) to where Stanos is. Even after the purpetrator is gone, they will still ALL wallk to him. Some will sit there for a bit and then go (walk) home. Others sit there, for a very long time! (Kaden Gron, Crenn Salbet, Prak, Wes Corber to name a few). As I'm writing this, two of them just left however. But they must have been there for at least 15 minutes. But immediately after, there will be this mess of mobs all sitting on one spot, makes it nearly impossible to trade with the one you want.

Killed Stanos twice on 24 June 2005 with a single group of level 70 toons and a botted 55 shaman. He dropped a couple of Mithril Daggers the first time. The second time we killed him, he dropped his head, a vial of Human blood, and some random casters words. I had the following in the group:

Human paladin, Human Wizard, High Elf enchanter, Dark Elf cleric, Vah Shir shaman, and myself (Half Elf rogue). The level 55 botted shaman was mine on a separate account. Aside from my rogue (ally) and shaman (dubious), everyone else was KOS in the zone. Was a fairly straight-forward fight:

- The group members waited at the entrance of High Keep. They were KOS there, so they just killed any NPCs there. We got fully buffed.

- I had my 55 shaman at the East Karana border. I trained Anson there, zoned out, then had the shaman spam-hail him. If you ignore Anson too long, he'll eventually wander back home. A hail will stop him from helping Stanos.

- I zoned back in, had the enchanter rune me, go invisible, and follow me up to pacify Cyrla.

- Once Cyrla was pacified, I pulled Stanos to High Keep's entrance. Stanos hits for roughly 240-520 and quickly. He's not slowable, relatively high resists. He went at him full DPS mode, with the cleric casting Complete Heal. My botted shaman kept hailing Anson.

- Stanos flees at 10% health. I zoned into High Keep to keep my faction high. He didn't get very far before dying.

how to pull him
# Jun 11 2005 at 12:42 AM Rating: Decent
to single him.

- agro anson and pull to Karana zone line, zone out yourself
- have a lvl 55+ standing there and spam hail ansos
- pop stanos via /say I want to see stanos to anson
- have a pacify puller pacify Cyrla
- pull Stanos to KF zone line
- on pull Stanos will call for help and all NPC will run to the spot he calls for help, the trick is that the puller keeps agro and wait for Stanos to hit the KF zone line. Then the MT takes agro over and puller zones out (important)

did him 12 times in 2.5 hours this way
# Feb 21 2005 at 2:54 AM Rating: Default
This is just plain retarded. I spawned Stanos, pulled him clean. Zoned out to make sure, zoned back in, engaged, and around 30-45 seconds later 15 monsters (including Anson and the other 61 Rogue in the Smuggler area, I forgot her name) came running out. It seems they assist him from anywhere in the zone, and a few other NPCs came too, I forgot what they were. "Bartender" and a few other lower level NPCs.
RE: Impossible
# Jun 11 2005 at 2:13 AM Rating: Decent
because he does a zone wide help as soon as he agros something, because you zoned out and re-agrod you got the new help call. Someone has to take over agro before you zone out
RE: Impossible
# May 29 2005 at 10:57 AM Rating: Decent
Pretty much same thing to me today. Anybody know why everything in the zone on his faction comes running? Has it always been this way, or something new? And if this is goona be the norm, is Anson snareable/rootable/mezzable/charmable? Need to get that guy off while we kill Stanos.
RE: Impossible
# May 31 2005 at 6:25 AM Rating: Decent
Arrrgh I hate this guy. Had time + geared bard pulling this time, got him single 4 outta 7 or 8 tries. Killed him those 4 times and only dropped the head once.

Also drops mithril dagger x2 and a rune (diff each time. rune of the astral, ones like that) each time.
