Something strange is indeed happening with the guards. I tried to kill Guard Stoutman today and he responded as many people had seen him, horribly MR and with uber regen. I read that Fintran could be taken so I pulled him and indeed I whalloped him good. I then zoned into EFP and wanted to test my theory on all the guards being weird so I pulled Guard Sheg at the gate, he was exactly like Guard Stoutman. I'm wondering if maybe they got sick of people soloing the guards or something or if they are trying to make Sir Lucan worth a fight instead of soloable my most people over 60 who can kill the guards on the way to him.

That's the only thing I can think of, upping all the guards instead of just the ones by Sir Lucan.
Dragon regen?

Knowing they'd be horribly MR, I used my nearly unresistable 325HP Lifetap as a nuke. Guard Brendyl dropped very easily, taking about 10 shots while kiting. So I figured Guard Fintran, being the same light blue, would be about the same. Oh no. Guard Fintran took the same amount of damage (about half a yellow bub of health per full-impact shot) but would *completely* regen all 325 HP on the next tick. Half a bub down, then full health. Time to zone...

Followup: Tried to do Guard Brendyl again the other day, just for kicks... he was buffed back to the same level as these two guards. That is, can absorb a 325HP lifetap and regen it completely in the next tick.

Being a paladin I'm always up for killing the corrupt gaurds relating to Freeport(I'm very KOS to fact my faction can not get any worse)...being bored, and passing through North Ro, I notice 2 gaurds at the inn...both dark blue to me...Gaurd Stoutman went down easy, so I thought it no big deal to Take on Gaurd Fintran...mistake...he is extremely magic resistant...cant stun, root, or nuke him...and could not even stratch him while tanking(I hit him with 2 127 hits and his health meter didnt budge). A SK passing through saw I needed help joined in...nothing, his health stayed full(I guess the 325 regen per tick explains this). His max hit on me was 131...I used LoH fairly quickly then realized it was a good thing we were sowed and near the zone...I informed a GM about this and he wasn't even sure why this guy was so tough, but he his...and Gaurd Brendyl too!

I find he is suseptible to Poison DOT's. My 51 Shaman cleans the floor with him. I hit him with malosi first, he may resist it, but never more than twice. My pet runs interference until i get Malosi to stick, then i DOT him. With SOW on, he tries to catch me, but i can outrun him backwards with SOW, so i watch the DOT and pet pick away at him as he tries to catch up to me. When he actually gives up and goes to kill my pet, i find that the COLD DD spells have a better than 50% chance of hitting too. So i pop him with that. I have been very successful with the guards in this zone.. As for melee classes, these guys seem to tough to go toe to toe with. Good luck!
Very High MR??? IM 52 and could NOT touch him

OK was in the area thought I would stop off and kill guards, its a fun thing to do, so I cast Dooming Darkness on this guard, and sure enough, resisted, no biggie, so I tank him for a while (I hit for 100+ and fast with a 34 delay wpn + FBSS) and little to NO damage on this guy, I try fear, nada, finally I realize its hopeless and FD. The sad part is one hour before I tried to kill Andad Filla in Sro, Andad is NOT MR, but hes also invincible and can summon, so VI whats the DEAL? ShadowKnights have to kill SOMETHING!!!

Your fire based DoTs and ac attack debuff spells will stick on him.Heat Blood,Boil Blood,Shroud of Pain,Shroud of Hate,Shadow Vortex,Steal Strength,All siphon spells,All stick with no resists.Disease cloud sticks about 40% of the time and all other SK spells stick about 1% of the time.I kill guards fo a living :).Dwarf Guards in BB are pretty much the same exept the guards in BB range from level 40 to 50 or 51.

They don't attack human mobs

I had a madman chasing me, and none of the guards I ran past (or circled) attacked it.

I know, the guards don't attack Dervs, Madmen or any human forms. I found this out the hard way.
information for killing is useless

Svart your information for killing this guard is useless. Also, you could have posted the same line for all three guards instead of "see my comments for guard fintran".
