soloing the chief
# Dec 16 2002 at 12:11 PM Rating: Decent
The chief/lego is doable solo as a shammy at 19 even if red.Malise,insidious fever,affliction,tainted breath,root sit med(head towards Mistmoore will you're setting this up if all goes to hell you can always zone in there).when root does break hit him with spirit strike kite back towards tents nuke once twice more and he should be 30 pct health ot below.At that point you can walking sleep him and melee him to 20 pct at which point he "phase 3's"(wants to get away from you).Or if you can just nuke him to below 20pct if you dont want to work or your melee ability.Leggo PH does tend to be slightly higher level then chief.But 22 is max level for them both.Spawn time is 5 min 50 secs.(which btw will be the actual time when u see someone post 6 min spawn,I use a digital alarm timer.)Hope that helps.Happy Hunting.
Just got the tongue

I had to kill about a dozen chiefs before he dropped his tonge. For me the lego PH appeared in his place about 10% of the time. Also, the chiefs ranged from green to blue to me at 29th though the legos were mostly blue and occasionally lite blue. None were very hard to deal with using root/dot.

Happy trails!

Has the orc chief tongue been nerfed?

Has the orc chief tongue been nerfed? I've been camping orc chiefs for four hours...killed a couple dozen of them, and no tongue...i can't believe im having such extroardinary bad luck...did they perhaps make it so that the tongue is now a rare drop?

I can confirm that the tongue still drops as of this date. I just got mine today after about 5 hours of camping and numerous chief and lego kills. Happy hunting

No the Orc Chief still drops the tongue, just looted it today. He was BTM at lvl 30 and dropped little coin and tongue.

I have tried on numerous occasions to get the tongue from the orc chief, and on almost every occasion, Equestrielle the Corrupted killed me, horribly. As I am not very familiar with Lfay, i had a difficult time trying to retrieve my corpse, from having to avoid not only that f***ing horse, but those very hard to spot brownie scouts as well. Now I know it's suposed to be challenging doing these quests, but not darn near impossible. I couldn't even meditate in the wood elf camp with saftey, those pointy eared twerps just watched the horse stomp me to a pulp. If anyone has any suggestions as to what I can do, I would really appreciate it. I know the totemic armor isnt the best, but I just want the satisfactionof saying that i have done the quest.

if you wanna get your corpse or med in lfay just cast invis on you im a 14 druid and i cast camo on me and they dont see me
RE: Stupid Horse!
# Feb 11 2002 at 3:44 PM Rating: Decent
That would but Shamans don't get invis till around 30. But if you get wold form cast on you by a druid then you should be fine.

Brownies will leave you alone while you're in wolf form.

Equestrielle the Corrupted will still stomp the crap out of you without regard to wolf form or invis. he saw me through camo, while i was in wolf form.

best bet to deal with Equestrielle, when you don't have track, is to spend as little time in Lfay as possible. even with track, i've been jumped several times by it, and only survived because i had Gate at the ready.

Well I finally got up the nerve at 24 to go into Lesser Fay and find this Chief so I can get his tongue - Nasty habit I know, but someone has to get it. So there I was kicking his butt with a DOT and a bit of some sledgehammer action and he started walking away. I rooted him and walked up to him to finish him off and he doubled attacked for a total of 88 hps and then imediately another dual attack for about 65 hps. SO I had to finish him off with a Spirit Strike. Bad news - no Tongue, but it was only the first try. Guess I better try again when I am not on my lunch break. Good Luck to all of you who try em, but beware of the Brownie Scout at 22 he dropped me with two hits of his DD spells .. nasty bastards. I thought Brownie Scouts sold cookies and were nice little girls? hmmm ...

So, as a 20th Circle Shaman it's probably a stretch to try to solo this guy? Bummer, that Totemic armor's gonna have to wait a few more levels... ;)
# May 19 2001 at 7:11 PM Rating: Decent
I was just wondering if this guy is a caster and if so coul a 31 shammy down him without having other aggroes?
RE: caster?
# May 20 2001 at 11:39 PM Rating: Decent
Yah... I, a 25 druid, downed him in no time flat... no other orcs joined him in fighting me so he didn't stand a chance. And i don't believe he casted, but I could be wrong...

The lego will drop much better loot than the chief.
RE: loot
# Nov 18 2001 at 2:38 PM Rating: Default
maybe, but the chief drops a tongue that is used for the totemic boots quest. that is why he is hunted ;)
No problems

Myself (20th lvl shaman) and by bride-to-be (18th lvl ranger but she leveled to 19 here) had the best time camping this spawn.

None of the other orcs aggro'd us, unless as someone else said, we sat down to med in or too near the camp. I got the tongue from the fourth chief that spawned, but we continued camping the spot because it was such good exp. Most of the lego's and chiefs conned yellow to me, but they were no problem...root, blast with DD's, finish them off with a few taps on the behind. I even solo'd a couple in the beginning, but be careful not to kite them too close to the nearby wood elf ranger camp. I lost the first chief that spawned by inadvertently doing this.

I'm not sure how fast they spawned, but by the time we had medded in between kills, the next spawn was waiting for us in the tent. We camped it for about 3 hours and only the one tongue dropped from probably around a dozen chiefs. We did loot 3 or 4 of the "Volume 3 of the Chronicles of Wu." We were the only ones in the zone for much of the time, so we were without the continual scroll annoying auctions and children shouting insults at each other frequently found in other zones, and the time between spawns was perfect for medding and chatting.

I also encountered Whimsy Larktwitter and she dropped a single (but very nice) arrow. One thing to be careful of: a brownie scout (as funny as it sounds, yes...a brownie scout). As a lvl 20 shaman, before we camped the orcs, I was running through Lfay on a CR and although I never saw it, I must have run into a brownie scout's aggro range. With no armor or buffs, it cast a single spell that knocked me down to about 10 percent hp. I was SoW'd, and kept running, but it cast another spell to finish me off. I later saw one chasing another player through the zone. It was deceptively small and VERY fast.

On to Rajena for the terror spines...

I got the orc chief tongue after about 2 hours of waiting last night, myself and my cleric friend both level 30 had no trouble at all. Well except from the DE camp, but thats another story.

The chief would spawn about every 7 minutes or so, or a legionnaire would spawn in his place. Very rarely, they would be blue to us and so we got a bit of exp.

None of the other orcs would aggro on us, unless I sat down in the middle of their camp to med... but the orc chief or legionnaire would.

and watch out for a named Pixie called Whimsy Larkstwitter, that little cretin came and backstabbed me for 88 pts while I was resting. But she dropped a nice bow.

Kiting as 22 druid
# Jul 31 2000 at 4:31 AM Rating: Decent
I could kite him as a 22 season druid, snared him from his tent (stand by one of the trees infront of the camp to target), careless lightning till he drops. Usually took all my mana, so save a little for another snare, run for 15 sec, med, get up and blast again.
I did this for 5 hours, didnt die once. The ranger outpost is close by too, so if you are in trouble just run there (and hope nobody trained the Tier Dals in there)

What about the orcs in his camp?
Do they agro you when you attack him?
I am Lvl. 24 & am going to go get his tongue when I hit lvl 25. Just wondering whether I need to take a friend or not?
Watch your tongue! :)
# Mar 22 2001 at 11:21 AM Rating: Default
Yeah, im level 24 and if the centurions are green to you, they seem not to aggro on you. This makes it good I guess for picking some little guys off for fun while you wait for Chief. BTW, if a chief doesnt spawn, a lego will. The tongue seems pretty rare, not that I was there very long (about an hour and a half) and still didnt get it.

# Oct 08 2000 at 12:03 AM Rating: Decent
they shouldn't. I have done it many times when i just hit him with a spell and backed out of the camp a ways and resumed the fight. The other orcs only come after you if you are fightinh him in the camp itself.

If you wanna be 100% sure of not dieing.. then take a druid friend with ya up there.. Harmony is perfect for things like this.. hehe. ;)

I camping him non-stop for close to 3 hours and he never dropped the tongue. Had some difficulty killing him as a 19 shaman but it was not impossible.

His loc is according to the shaman crucible -561, 1643
Higher than 22
# Mar 21 2000 at 9:11 AM Rating: Decent
He is definately higher than 22nd sometimes. I'm a 24th shaman hunting him for the tongue and I killed him once easily (he was a blue con) and then I logged on this morning to kill him again and just wandered up and he aggro'd....and fighting really well so I con'd him...he was yellow!! So he can go up to 25th...I took him btw, barely ended with 38hps (and that was with regen up through the whole fight)..but I got about 1/2 a bub of xp out of him...
RE: Higher than 22
# Mar 04 2001 at 1:10 PM Rating: Default
There is no doubt that the Orc Chief can spawn higher than Level 22 these days. I saw a level 27 Enchanter getting EXP from him on solo kills. I am still getting EXP as a level 24 Wiz off of the Chief and the Orc Leggos that will alternately spawn in the Chief's place. Casters can ride the EXP on this through about level 26 or 27.

He aggros on everyone as does the Leggo

I am lvl 51...
High level Leggo in his place..
# Mar 25 2001 at 12:43 AM Rating: Default
I was walking thru one time and wanted to see if the chief was in, there was a leggo in his place. He aggroed on me at 31st, like chief will, and fought very hard.. as a matter of fact, I earned xp by killing it! Wasnt enough to move my bar but I did get the message. Anyways, on the body was Volume 3 of Chronicles of Wu.. hanvt found a use for this but by reading you get a part of the recipe for making Wu gauntlets.. anyone know of another use for it?
The tongue.
# Mar 01 2000 at 11:00 AM Rating: Decent
Not used for cooking but for making a piece of Totemic armor. He is in the same spawn pool as a few other orcs so you may have to kill a few.
# Mar 01 2000 at 11:00 AM Rating: Decent
He is often yellow to me at level 22, but I've seen him even fight at level 18. I've killed him SEVERAL times, so I think the levels are more like 18 to 23 or 24.
# Feb 17 2000 at 3:42 AM Rating: Decent
Have looted him a few times. He drop couple of gold, lego pads, rusty long swords, 3rd book of Wu. The lego that is his place holder droppes the same and is the same lvl.
