Easy solo as 30 mage, fire pet ds + pet heal = easy win

Loc is +2156, -3659, -99. Not loc below. For those with no map to zone he is due East of island that boat from Freeport drops you off. East and ever so slightly North of there. And so far he has dropped ice giant toes, ornate defiant chain sleeves and rune of tyranny. That is in second kill.

Cyclops will add and all are LB to DB to 44 mage. Once camp is broke is easy to maintain.

His location is pos 652, neg 5685. He is on an island in the Northern East part of the zone. If u look at yr map, there are 3 islands at the top right. He is on the 3rd island from the right, next to the island where the spells are sold. Hope that helps.

Gornit IS soloable before 34 - barely

I have a level 33 Magician and am soloing Gornit at present date ... he sometimes con yellow (easy enough) and sometimes red (switching from tough, to EXTREMELY tough. Prepare to loose your pet and manage to kill him on 20% health, or be dead). He still drops over 30 plat sometimes, but more often than not, it's 6-8 plat, and alot of gold, silver and copper - as well as various research pages, and the Pirate Earring. And Fire Giant Toes and Hill Giant toes, which he will drop in abundance.

However, I have not yet seen him drop Ice Giant Toes or Cyclops Toes ... fustrating as heck, but unless they nerfed him, he should sooner or later ...

gornit is my standards off-mob when i camp seafuries, however lately the lagg in oot has the mos in the zone doing the yo-yo effect.

But as far as coin goes , this guy drops around 15-35 most the time for me, so he is a must if Im in zone. Also, the weapons he drops are goot for cash as well.

I like this guy
# Dec 09 2004 at 12:10 AM Rating: Decent
I like this fella. I average about 700pp a night (not much for a 48 mage, but hear me out). I also like the nice pace I'm given. At 6 minutes in between killings, I can talk to the guild, talk to my friends, and talk in the serverwide chats about stuff, as well as make dinner, eat, etc.

I'm currently working on getting my drog, and I figure I only need about 4 or 5 more days of killing this guy.

Some things to note, though:
The past two days, I've gotten very little in the way of weaponry. He seems to be dropping very little. Before, I could fill up all my bags and gate back to PoK, with a couple hours to kill on an alt. Now, I can't even fill up the bags before I get so encumbered, I can't move (TG for gates to PoK bank).

He doesn't drop Cyclops toes. So you mages looking for a broom will have to look elsewhere.

I suggest only looking the collar, the fire toes, and the weaponry. This way, you can get maximum pp/holding space. However, you might want to loot the Ice giant toes as well, and just drop or destroy extras if you need the space.

All in all, a pretty easy camp. I malaise him, send air pet on him (remember: he can't be stunned, it just gives some aggro for the pet), nuke once at 85%, then nuke again at 30-33% (depending on /con). I rarely need to heal my pet (unfocused). Afterwards, I loot for the plat (1-10 sometimes, but 35-40 most of the time, with rare occasions going past that), weaponry, and toes, and just /con the corpse. Gornit spawns again when the corpse is at 2 mins and 8 seconds till decay, so if there's ONLY a weapon on him, you can not loot it, kill the next Gornit (by /con'ing the corpse, it's easier to tell when he'll spawn), and then loot the weapon off the first. On occasion, he only drops plat, but usually there's at least the pirate earring (don't loot it), which you can keep on there so the corpse doesn't decay.

Edit: I'd like to point out the fact that my gear is crap. You likely wouldn't give a twink what I have, and the only focus items I have are mage summoned.

Also, Gornit is NEVER camped on Kane Bayle, but that's probably because it's Kane Bayle. Nothing's ever camped, and no one's ever there :P

Still Nice Loot
# May 09 2004 at 12:04 PM Rating: Decent
Been camping Gornit for about 3 hours now this morning. I've seen anywhere from a handful of silver & copper, up to 42 plat & change, & he's dropped more than 20 plat several times. Plus, he's still dropping research items, FS weapons, & other miscellaneous vendor stuff, & at 6 minutes/spawn, it's OK.

RE: Still Nice Loot
# May 11 2004 at 8:02 PM Rating: Decent
Hmm, I guess you guys are right, I guess I did have bad luck at looting gornit. I was having great loot until I went ld and when I came back the mobs in ocean of tears seemed to messed up.

I always loved going to oot to kill this guy, whenever I wait for him to respawn I go kill his buddies, Toko Binlittle, DixI Drool, and Capt Surestout, then went back to gornits spot. Then I went LD and came back on and resumed to kill gornit, so far I kill him 6 times and he only drops 3-7 pp now, he usally drops around 36-47 pp but not anymore. This is crap lol, they screwed up oot, and you think thats all? look on my other post on Capt Surestout
RE: Patch changed
# Apr 20 2004 at 12:09 AM Rating: Decent
I got 36pp plus some change today. Just a string of bad luck I guess.
What is so special?
# Feb 20 2003 at 12:49 AM Rating: Default
Why is this guy constantly camped almost every time I go to OOT? I expected the AC to be the perma-camp, not some HG pirate named Gornit. Does he drop something thats not listed? Money? What?
RE: What is so special?
# Apr 21 2003 at 2:12 PM Rating: Decent
One reason he is camped often is that he drops toes of all 3 types of old-world giants and cyclops toes. It may not sound like much of a reason, but the mage focus broom, stein, torch, and shovel require these toes. Although cyclops and Hill Giant toes are pretty easy, he is a bit easier to kill than ice or fire giants.

I was killing him while Allizewsaur was camped because he dropped 140pp in 5 kills (but only 68 gold on the 6th kill) AND he gives a faction increase in FV - a nice change from a monster that *may* drop a blue diamond or snake skins.

*EDIT* I must have been having an extrordinarilly good night because subsequent kills of Gornit have not been as profitable, but I would still say he was profitable enough to buy a few KEIs so I could do some *real* killing.

RE: What is so special?
# Apr 13 2003 at 3:43 AM Rating: Decent
Yeah, he drops lots of money.

The most I've had him drop was 37pp and some change... with the gold made it about 42pp, which is great loot for a green or light blue HG, and if you get the camp there's no competition like in RM.

AC isn't perma-camped cuz it takes FOREVER to get his lazy *** to spawn... which is why the ring MQ's for 5k on Terris Thule.
Drinal Server Gornit
# Aug 27 2002 at 4:58 AM Rating: Decent
OK here are the facts on Gornit on the Drinal Server:

He cons mostly high blue to me at 47ht level and puts up a moderate challenge to me (Beastlord).

BUT sometimes he cons White/Black to me as well. When he is this level (cons light blue to 57th SK)he dishes it out nicely.

Dont think he is 33 - 37 level at all.

He drops anything from 44 silver to 44pp and he is a 6 minute spawn.

He also drops: Hill Giant Ear, Fire Giant Ear, Ice Giant Ear, Pirate Earring, some runes, some words (mostly Cazic Thule) and some salis writ pages.

He hits for 90 - 110 per hit and does not resist very often.

He has about 2000 hit points.

In other words he is whimpier that a sea fury but he hits harder.

I dont think you can try him before 34 as a mage, and even at 34, he can give you a hard time, even with oet summoned with focus items. At 39, you can farm him wih very few downtime and good xp too. At 44, kill the seafuries for xp and loot and Gornit who will be green for the cash.

Now regarding the toes for the focus items, you don't need to kill Gornit yourself to have them, you can always send a tell to the guy who camp Gornit, explain him you need the toes for a quest and i'm sure he will be happy to give them to you. In the worst case, if he is a jerk, he may ask you for 2 or 3 pp/toes, give it and move on -)

I don't know if levels have changed since that post, but Gornit was actually light blue at 51, so will presumably still be dark blue at 44.

Either way he was a trivial kill for the 49 Earth pet with Burnout III and the 25-point damage shield (forget whether that's level 44 or 49): I pulled with a 700 damage nuke and then I think he only took the pet down 2-3% of its hit points afterwards.

Sigh...if you take time to look at the fac list above...Fironia Vie is an opposing faction...you raise fac with FV for killing him.

Im a 45 magician on Morell-Thule server, and i was wondering how easy it would be for me to solo him, i would prolly try using a fire pet at first, ive soloed with a fire pet since 24 from LOIO to OT to Yeti caves to bloodgills, but im looking for something that gives exp+loot. could anyone give me hints as to a strategy i might use?

Sure a mage could solo him at 45. But you're gonna get encumbered quick. There's no bank without zoning away and he drops a ton of cp and silver. If you're going to destroy all that, then the gold will still get ya. I'm not sure about anyone else, but I'm not fond of destroying gold. And lately his drops seem poor, maybe 8 to 10p and the rest in gold, sp & cp. Decent spawn rate, about 7 minutes, nothing special about him he's just as tough as a normal HG. Xp is so-so.

just my (once Gornits) 110cp
