I have a task "Clearing the Desert Trade Routes" on my low level alt. I don't remember who I got it from. One of the task stages is to kill 10 orc raiders in North Ro. I've used a tracker and cannot find any in the entire zone. I've cleared just about everything and they don't pop. I peititioned but they said that they do spawn and may have a placeholder. Does anyone know what the place holder is or where I should be looking for them?

I found them. It seems you have to just keep clearing everything. I stayed mostly to the south near South Ro zoneline. The tarantulas seemed to also like killing them. If an orc popped near a tarantula, the spider would start to kill it and sometime finished it off before I got there. That's probably why I never saw any, they were killed by tarantulas as soon as they popped.

Very good loot for lower lvls but I have killed at least 50 of these guys and only received 2 of them.

I spent levels 4 through 7 hunting where the grassline meets the sand in North Ro, and in that time I looted not one but two Pickbringers Chainmail Coifs off the Orc Raiders. This was a pleasant surprise, since I thought they only dropped off the higher Orcs like the Centurions in East Commons. They do in fact drop off these lowly Orc Raiders in North Ro as well.

As most of you know, the Coifs are probably the best loot you can get anywhere during the newbie stage, since they sell to merchants for over 20pp. Given the quantity of Orc Raiders here and the somewhat uncrowded hunting grounds, I see no better place in the Freeport area to spend levels 4 to 7 than right there on the grassline of North Ro.

Im a Lvl 12 Magician on the Innoruck Server and I hate these thing even know they are so easy to me I try to med and they attack me and they know they will get killed. Even though i have my pet guarding me and the damn things still hit me. When it hits me i look at it and Cast column of fire and then sit down and med. After im do medin i never loot chain mail off it.

Sure,they give good experience and all, but the real idea of killing these little vermin is that they drop "Pickbringer's Chainmail Coif". A reasonably good head armor and it sells for around 25pp anywhere. Kill them, take thier loot, sell it.

Yep that right I have got it 2 times now just killing them while wasting time for the dervs to "POP" and found the Pickbringer's Chainmail Coif 2 times now. Nice!!

These guys are easy. I killed them for the rusty weapons to practice my blacksmithing skills.

When you kill Crushbone orcs, you lower faction with the Dark Elf warrior guild. So unless you want to get faction up with the wood elves and dwarfs, I wouldn't advise killing them in Crushbone. However, these orcs are perfectly fine to kill and helps raise faction with Freeport.

What faction do these give? Is it the same faction as the orcs in the commonlands?
Can i kill it safely?

i still gain Exp in level 9, now this is pretty weird. some conned blue to me, so i predict the level range might go up to level 6.

Agreed. I'm a level 9 Nec and some con blue.

Uh huh, that's pretty normal. You usually get exp from mobs two to three levels lower than you.
