This guy has an amazing amout of hp's.Just killed him with a 72 monk and 80 shammy.Took over a half hour.AA slow worked on him once in a while.Straight nuking worked pretty well acually.Most were not resisted.

Dropped words of obligation,1 rhenium ore and 5 pp.

Ran was always the best guard as long as you weren't KoS.. If you made it to him, you had a 99/100 chance of living.

Yeah, Ran's just l33t like that.
Heres a way bring him down.

I know people are saying that he's highly resistant to spells. Has anybody checked to see if he's a belly caster? (Spells land only when you're right on top of him)
If a druid tanks in a forest, and nobody is around to see it, is he uber?

Like... every dragon out there =P

Not every one, but a LOT of them from the velious and kunark days were belly casters.

Oh forgot to mention this guy doesn't regen cause was laying the smack down on him and when we backed our pets off and such to get a good focus on him his hp's didn't go up at all. We checked =/

This man was taken down by 4 people. 2 Beastlords 65+ , 67 Chanter (me), and a 67 Shaman. Yes he does have a ridiculous amount of hp's I would say around 10k per 1% It took us 3 hours to take this guy down. His resists are good but you have to work at it to get your spells to land. Anyway a lot of revenge went into killing him and it was for the greater evil =)

me as a 65 warrior and a friends 57 shaman had no problem what so ever tanking him, he had kei and could have kept me alive for hours, but we had next to no dps so we called it quits after a bit.
he probly doesnt have the 1.2 mil, 500k hps n such posted below, just alot im guessin 120k and just a ton of regen, i got him to 99% pretty fast but didnt get to 98% in forever, makes me think he was regening, none of his spells stuck on me and he hit me maby once every 2 seconds for 2-300 dmg with good defense skills and aa's, defensive disc didnt seem to change how much dmg i took from him ( wierd ). hes incredibly resistant to spells, shaman tryed to tash , mal, slow him like 7 times for each spell and none stuck, might have just been his level but i still think 1 would have stuck, just get 3-4 meele classes for dps and a 65 shaman if u want over kill on the healing.

yep lvl 63 to 65. he has 500K Hit Points. (I asked a GM) I HATE !!!!! his nukes. i took 750 non mel dam twice and was stuned, then he whaled on me hiting me for 200+ sometimes 300+ damage and he was double hiting. i was dead before i hit the ground.... and all i did was go into the room just to take a peak at him. this is what happens when you get a dum curious ogre that loves to kill guards all day for the money.

Just posting a correction:

Ran Flamespinner was not killed by Emerald Stars on Tunare. The raid was hosted by Mandaos Darkstar, Badong Gnodab, Zoloph, and Lvler Donar. Though many ES did attend it was not an ES raid

Prexus Server my bud Tauqmuk wants to take down Ran... and so do I. He's in Forgiven, a pretty decent guild, and I'm in... well... Kings Men, a lowly peasant am I. Well anyways, he wants to get a few people together, probably not anytime soon, but eventually, to take Ran out for all the times he's scared the crap out of us and bothered us in our pharming. Also, he seems to be attracted to Bosec. I solo him a lot for a bit of xp, and once in a while Ran'll come running with his Bonner and his Handy and they'll wipe me out... /sigh... But we are taking him out eventually. If we have to PAY to see him dead, we... might.

Ran was killed last night on Druzzil Ro server by about 10 people between lvl 55 and 65. It took us about 2 hours to kill him and he has well over 32k hps. Conning DB to the 62+ and red/yellow to the lower lvls. AS POSTED he does not quad, only double which means he is an easy kill with a few healers. His faction hits are listed above. Nothing major though. Kiling him was more of a regen than to see what he dropped.

How To Kill Ran
# Nov 06 2003 at 9:47 PM Rating: Decent
1 post
Ran can be killed by a group of 12 - 18 Peeps, leveled from 51 - 65. He does not quad, but doubles for 300's. He has an AE Snare spell which makes zoning very hard for a dying raid. Im am told that he has another AE spell that is a DD but i have failed to see one hit my raids. He also has a nasty stun for 750Dmg. He is very resistant to Magic, so stunning will not stop his casts, and making him almost impossible to slow.

One way to form a group capable of killing this Wizard GM is to have 2 - 3 clerics maybe 4 if you can find them. Maybe a mage or 2 for nuking dmg and pets additional Dmg with some extra casting classes. As many Warriors, SKs, Pallys and other tankable class you can find for the DPS needed to take this guy down. And people ready to take time in bringing down his large amount of HP's. I would have to guess that he has around a million plus, maybe even 1.2 million. 8 Tanks doing 125 dmg minimum a tick with added doubles + Pets dmg and nukes = about 20000 dmg a minute which is about 1.5% of his max HP's. Make sure you have your clerics with as many mana buffs as possible, this fight could take a while. Guessing 45 mins +. Gl with killing him.

55 Pally
25 Mage
18 War

Ok I can't verify this myself seeing as I don't have any 60+ chars to experiment with on this guy, but a 65 friend of mine tryed to kill Ran a while ago, turns out he is 100% magic resistant, and quads for around 250.... Meaning he's not easy to take down.

yeah, solro was the first to take him down a while back(at least theats what the GM's said) and I know of at least 10 MB wizzies that blasted him when we could and he didnt die, my MB hits for 9492 he has WAY more than 32k HP's we had prolly 50-60 people on him and it still took an hour and a half at least.

I tried to duo him with a 60 shammy and 60 war.

Cleared guards and then pulled him to zone. Slow never stuck once, nor did any of the dots. So I would say he was very very magic resistant.

Also, he hits quite hard. So I never got him below 90 percent health.

This is one wizard trainer you want to stay far way from if you kill guards in HK. He has killed me on multiple occasions when some poor unfortunate soul pulled him on me or I ran into him by mistake. It gives me the creeps whenever I see Ran Flamespinner begins to cast a spell. I suggest you keep your distance and if you do end up fighting him, pray you have SoW and run. Run away screaming like a little girl or you WILL be dead. You have been warned.

FYI Ran STILL kills picks when you bring them to him AND he'll kill you too if he uses his AE and your close enough.

Ran died tonight on the Veeshan server at about 7:50PM CST. It was an allied fight and many people showed, Probably between 50-80 people, I showed up when he was at 55% health. About 2 hours later he was finally dead.

This guy is VERY mean if you are a cop killa I was killing cops no sweat until I ran into him big problem if you are locked with him in my opinion stay the H*** outta his way he has a stunning spell that hit for 750 and he hit hard stunning him or better yet mezzing him is your best bet of survival but be forwarned it prolly wont hold on him
Can he die?

Saw a lvl 60 Necro in here the other day try to solo this guy. Fight didn't last long, pet got worked over with those 300+ hits. Saw the Necro cast some dots on him but I never saw Ran lose any life. Ran didn't AE, just melee'd the pet and Necro had to FD. Overall I think the fight lasted about 15 secs with Ran taking no damage at all. Anyone know if this guy has a huge hp regen rate or can he simply not be killed?
