Rated at 45 but seems to have a lot of hit points. If you are not good for a fairly long battle be careful

two level 36 or so casters, both of us died 2 times trying to kill it haha. Good thing the battle was right next to respawn point. Anyhow, dropped a Flawed Defiant Plate Helm for me, along with the pelts and chain arms.
Spawned in cave for me

I was camping Ursalua today and she spawned in the cave. I killed all the bears I could fin a few times before this spawned.
because I could

Spawned outside of caves for me. REAL tough fight for a 46 SK non-twink. ( i didnt have harm touch up) and woulda died w/o help from a nice passerby. dropped the chain arms and her pelt. Potential ability to kite with an SK i was doing before help arrived but was fast running out of mana--tons of HP's. Ravaged me for 190 dmg i think.

a mesa mother bear seems to be the PH for Ursalua, after killing, Ursalua will normally spawn nearby.

The mother bears are not specific PH's for Ursalua. I've killed rounds with 1 or 2 mother bears, and not had Ursa pop. I've killed rounds with no mother bears, and Ursa pops. I have had her pop after rounds with mother bears, but I zoned in once when there were 2 motehr bears, killed both, waited on repops, no Ursalua. I think any mesa bear can be the PH, best bet is to just kill every one of them.
Stupid bear

Was kiting Ursalua near the zoneline to Moors and had him down to 1% and pet was beating him to death, when a Mage ran past me to zone out with the stupid "alpha wolf" on him along with the alpha wolfs adds it had spawned already.

Mage zones out, the Alpha Wolf and his adds proceed to aggro me and my pet right after that, I barely finish off Ursalua before being killed myself, then when I finally run back to the zone Ursalua's corpse is gone.

So I whisper the Mage asking if he looted the corpse, and he comes by and gives me the pelt so I am thinking "great, I will get the armor after all!"

BUT, in the quest, it says you have to LOOT the pelt off the corpse after you kill. I tried turning it in anyway and the NPC just gives it back.

The Mage said he looted it because he thought I wouldn't get back in time to loot it off the corpse, which is kind of dumb since I was bound in PoK and it takes like 2 minutes to run from there to Mesa.

This all happened after I already attempted to solo him just before this, and I ended up running out of mana and dying.

Moral of the story is make sure YOU kill the mob, and YOU loot the pelt off of the body, or you will NOT get the quest completed.

I killed her with root and my Wizzie nukes. Easy. :)

was messin about in blackfeather roost, and noticed this gal was up in the bear cave there. so i guess if you need her and shes being camped, or people are bein jerks, just go to the roost and kill those bears.
Kill Stealing a camped mob
# Dec 16 2007 at 2:01 PM Rating: Decent
had this mob camped for hours, when a 75 necro named Fallz on the Povar server jumps in and steals it, after he trains us with giants a griffs from across the zone. Then after the rez'n is done, and waiting another 3 hours for it to pop again, he does it a second time, knowing the group we were in had been there all day.

Then he blames the train on Needzmana, wizard from the Twilight of Gods guild, who he was actually helping to KS our mob.

Just an FYI, if you ever run into either of them, they KS...and that says alot for that guild as well

Treated like the regular mesa bears: Will not aggro anything other than other bears and the mesa alpha wolf... which sucks since I got it down to 50% with ease with my then-44 necro, then ran across an alpha wolf which proceeded to slaughter me...

Killed him today with my 48 ranger. Just snare, dot, panic animal, whack - rinse repeat. Lots of fire resists but my swarm dots landed every time. Panic landed about 2/3 of the time. The dot is very nasty and he has a whole lot of hp but with panic, it was only a matter of time ;-)

soloed her today on a 39 druid. took quite a while, as i ran out of mana pretty quickly. magic dot landed every time, fire dot was resisted every time with resist debuff. fire nuke was resisted a bit, about the same as the other bears around there. she diddnt hit very hard, but then, i diddnt give her many chances to swing.

Hits hard for her level, has a lot of hp. My 304-90 nuke took her 5-15%. Managed to solo with a 58 bst, had to back off and heal about midway through the fight because of the dot. Owned my pet in the mean time.
(Virtue is recommended- I didn't have it, but I think I got lucky.)

Faction question
# Nov 08 2006 at 11:25 PM Rating: Decent
[i][/i] Was wondering if a druid try to camp this mob, would affect their faction with the druid NPCs and other bears? I know that camping other bears does have this affect.

PITA spawn, worked on him with my 52 magician, took 3 hours to get the spawn. I cleared the caves and someone else was clearing the bears outside of the cave for exp. Didn't realize it was as tough as it was, and had my pet had virtue on I would have won the fight with no problem. Me and pet got the bear down to 35% hp when he killed my pet, actually i think the dot was what done it. Tried to kite him but with no sow I did not last long. Asked some higher lvls that were watching if they could help, answer was no. As soon as I died they sent me a tell saying they killed it and took the drop :(. Gonna bring some friends next time or get a higher lvl pet. Letting you all know, just because it is a LB con at 52, don't underestimate it. Good luck on the hunt.
Dang!

I know this is 10 months later, but when things like this happen, name the server and post the names of the players.

Worked on it for about 5 hours clearing the mesa bears (and mothers and cubs) and never got the spawn.

Maybe just bad luck, but it would have been faster and easier to get to 55 and buy the ornate bp... /sigh
45 level chest armor quest
# Sep 27 2006 at 2:51 PM Rating: Decent
One of the scouts, Scout Madu, gives a quest for some nice armor, all classes I believe , the chest armor requires a drop from the named bear, Ursalua.
This mob shows up after you clear out the cave and plains area of the regular mesa bears. Ive only seen Ursalua spawn outside the cave so far, but guess he can spawn anywhere the regular mesa bears do.
chest piece has regen 2 and mana regen 3 on it, example is the Rune Tailored Cloth Robe.
Did this quest with a 61 chanter and took about an hour to spawn the named bear. Your mileage may vary.
