Does anyone have the correct location of this guy. Everyone agrees he is on the west of the zone. Some people say near the bloodfields and others say down to the south of zone. Can anyone clear it up? Did SOE move him? Please advise.

Killed him and the 4 ukun boneretrievers, soloed them all at once on my 75 cleric. Was after crystal of yearning the ukuns can drop, didn't get one. Kyv dropped the 25 hp aug. Would like to know the spawn timer on him, no one has said what it is.

how to split the dogs / solo
# May 17 2007 at 4:28 AM Rating: Decent
hello been soloing this guy sincce lvl 69 a mag we dont get FD or fade so here is how i did it. The dogs are linked to other mobs near him IE noc,kyvs,and such... pull the mobs on the side where the steps and named ukun are and the dogs will come cuz they are link to other mobs near him as well as to the named. took me a while to figure which kyv,ukun,noc pulled which dog but once i figured this out the camp became EASY....Oh yea just gotta watch out for the 1 spell he casts cuz the dogs will come and aggro you and you only but usually by the time u get to the named u have 1 add and named left to deal with so kill add 1st and he cant cast that spell...

I managed to solo this guy, I'm also a 70 SK with stats very similar to the guy below. This is a difficult FD split. It seems to take generally 4 or 5 splits to get him alone but whereas with most other mobs once you've got them split you're golden, not necessarily with this one. Granted it doesn't say in an emote or in says, he would summon his pets to him from their spawn points (generally 1 or 2 of them) about 30 seconds or so after engaging him. I was plenty far away from his spawn point and this happened to me more than once.

The DS makes him somewhat more likely to stay with you on a split attempt but I found he would very often return to his spawn anyway. I've also tried dotting him, nuking him, meleeing him some. None of them seems to be a surefire way to get him to remain on a split.

After you do get him split, I recommend you get up and run further away from his spawn point, this might prevent his pets from coming some of the time. He also doesn't summon FYI, so if you're worried about doing too much damage to him and getting summon, don't worry, his pets do summon though.

I will add that he can hit into the low 720's. I was kinda suprised but he did hit me for that once (I may have had my back to him).

Can FD Split

It is a huge pain in the *** and can take a day and a half (5 - 10 minutes) but this guy can be FD split from his dogs. The pain is when he poofs back to spawn point. The key is to have a ds and let him whack you a few times before you FD. Even a gimp *** geared SK such as myself can solo him, hits for 666 max with PoP Mitigation. I am level 70 with 7500 hp and 1850 ac unbuffed...

Ok here is how i do it... (70 ranger 10k+hp) i verry carefully sneak up to the kyv from the hill and make sure no wanderers, then hit the kyv with one arrow and cast aa innate camo and run to the blood fields zoneline, 99 % of the time (long as u have insta invis) you will get only one unkun with ya and lots of times he doesnt run all the way to the zoneline so then its a single pull one healing pot mebe a self heal thats it
My bad

lol someone just posted on soloing this guy.. Only thing is for a bard u dont have to be twinked to do this..
Bards rule....
This guy is a sissy...

It surprised me to see that no one has posted on soloing this guy. Any bard can solo this guy 60 plus. If you have the veteran AA infusion of the faithfull this guys is a piece of cake. He doesnt summon but his ukun dogs do, therefore do not harm them just kite chant the Kyv Headhunter, none of his spells will be able to land on you. After you have killed him just use faded memories on him and all the mobs that you have aggroed during the encounter will go away. Inviz yourself come back and loot whatever he drops. Most of the time he drops the Darkened steel saber, sometimes u get the 25 hp aug, and Ive only gotten the 3 regen ring once. Ive killed this guy over 20 times this techniche works like a charm..

solo'd this guy today on my 70 pal with 13.2k hps... (had shm buffs and only self virtue)conviction and GoE would have helped more. dogs hit me max 330 kyv hits somewhere around 500ish.

i just tanked all 4 mobs but their dps brings you down fast. had to use my servant to help heals. used lay of hands, my grp heal aa (manaless 1700 hp heal) 2 heal potions to take them all down.

killed kyv first, once he was dead the dogs were easy to pick off 1 by 1, only need 1 heal after kyv was dead.

his loot is NO GOOD for the amount of work it took to solo this guy. 35 hp loot attunable, eh maybe if wasnt attunable could sell for more. wasted my time there. if not more than time geared id suggest not soloing him, hes a pain.

Okay have tried this guy, he's okay.

There's a special strat that should be easy enough to do, but:

1. MT on the Kyv.
2. Rest kill Ukuns.


1. MT on the Kyv.
2. Each person takes 1 Ukun to deal with.

It's more effective to kill ukuns while MT gets Kyv, but gatta get their aggro fast or else you're MT might be screwed. His friends are what stop people from soloing.

61st Mage Air pet (with Convinction and Infusion of Spirit) was soloing the Kyv while my beast friend Haps was dealing with the Ukan Boneretrievers. Having a 61st Cleric to complete heal is a must. Fun and fairly long fight - hard to get beast slow to land on Kyv. Was good to kill those Ukan Boneretrievers for once. Ukan's hit harder than Kyv a

Won the necklace of Glitering Gems and we got two Eye of Dragon drops later.

not as easy as it looks

This guy always comes with 3 Ukun BoneRetriever(s). Do not think he's easy it's a 4 mob encounter.

Does he Always drop
# Jun 18 2005 at 9:45 AM Rating: Decent
Hello guys. I recently pulled this guy and my group killed him, i died because the healer wasn't quite fast enough to get to me =/ . Anyway when i got back, i asked around what he dropped and no one claimed he dropped anything but a brilliant kyv quiver if he dropped anything at all. Anyway is it possible for him not to drop one of the items above, or does he always drop something. I'm thinking someone ninjad and didn't fess up =(
RE: Does he Always drop
# Aug 14 2005 at 11:46 PM Rating: Default
You were totally ninja'ed. I'm preety sure OoW named mobs don't ONLY drop trash. Combined with the fact you were out of zone I'm guess someone got his loot..

killed him today with a bard(69) - cleric(67)duo and ran into some interesting facts

Inital pull with bard i got the Headhunter + 1 pet

i pulled both to the bloodfields zoneline , once theire i use highsun to send the pet back to the spawn spot and used fadeing memory's

as a result we ended up with the Headhunter and during the fight we had no adds at all

the Headhunter himself can be chainstunned and that saved a lot on healing for the rest it was just beating him down

bard tanked whole fight with 9k cleric was down to 50% mana because he used mainly fast heals

1 small sidenote , his dogs seemed to despawn when the Headhunter died

droped the +25 hp augment

This guy killed me once when I didnt know his dogs were linked.

Level 66 raped by him and hounds after getting rooted within sight of the two towers trying to run away. If only I had popped my horse. Why oh why was I running on foot?

Then later I pulled the saves aug ukun placeholder, then the nearest static noc out from there.

Guess what? Yep I didn't know his dogs were unrootable, unsnareable, and for level 51s hit for 300s.

Me and enchanter dead.

It is a good thing when I was playing on my mid level rogue in a group at the saves aug camp that this a-hole wasn't up.

Him or his dogs will come running from a mile away just like Subaru said.

Solo'd him today, first time I didn't even know he was there and subsequently died from him and his dogs.

After that I took the advice of the necro and pulled the static mobs, resulting in me getting 2 both his dogs together without the owner. Then pulled another static and got him. Had to back up and heal myself a few times and defensive, but fairly standard fight. Was hitting me on average for 400-500 max for 668.
