A stinger dropped a celestine the other day.

It once dropped slugworms but neither appear common.

Having killed a few hundred of these for about 20aa xp now, I really don't think the resist check is only -100. Buffed, my resists are close to 200 and I don't recall ever resisting their spells.

Here's some info on these, will edit as I find more:

Level 64-65
Triples for 656 MAX
~35,000 HPs

CAN be snared/rooted
Do NOT Summon
Rarely they may see invis
Some do not cast at all
Most casters cast "Gloom Toxin"
A rare caster may cast "Shade Mantle"

From what I have seen there is no way to identify which will cast or what it may cast.

Drops I've seen in 37 kills
----------------------------------------
Murkglider Plasma x9
Murkglider Stomach x6
Murkglider Claw x3
Damaged Murkglider Skin x1
Emerald x2
Sapphire x1
Peridot x1

All this info was collected in Nobles' Causeway. I cannot vouch for it's veracity in other zones.

I was in Nobles today and fought a half a dozen of these. They were Dark Blue to me at 63. Dropped claws and a stomach. Also various gems (Emeralds and Sapphires). I am a 63 warrior with AC around 1380's and AA 5% damage mitigation. Hardest hit I took was 488. I got hit by the odd spell for damage, but did not get any effects.

What you are describing are the zonein "Murkgliders" not the Murkglider Stingers. These are higher level, 64-65. They are never below 64. They hit harder and faster. They are also in a niche in the far East side of the zone, so you wouldn't find them unless you were camping them.

Stingers seem to drop almost no loot. At least 4 out of 5 corpses are empty. I haven't seen any zone rares drop from them yet, but I've only killed about 200 so far, so I might just be unlucky.

BTW, I learned the hard way that the dog near the Akeva can spawn a mini-named who sees invis. Be sure to con everything on your way in or you might be in for a difficult CR.

Got a Drakeskale Shield today, so zone rares do drop from them. Also, some of the warp issues seem to have been resolved during the Jan 11 zone reset.

Update: After killing about 1000 of these now, there are still some warp issues, but most were addressed, so this camp is somewhat safer than before. The XP is good, but the loot generally is horrible. Mostly just the Murkglider Plasma, gems are uncommon. Discordant Scoria has never dropped at this camp, although Dust of Discord and Trean flies have. Random augs are about 1 in 200. I've gotten 2 x voidflow and 1 x mudflow. Often we just let the corpse rot cause the loot isn't worth the bother the majority of the time.
