Her death

After killing her for about the 100th time I began to feel a little sorry for her. After death her corpse always says " my comrades will avenge my death" - but of course they never do. No one ever comes to help her or avenge her. The other gypsies just stand there while she dies.

A friend told me about this camp for my necro. (level 30 when I started) First time I killed her she resisted dooming darkness 4 times till one stuck. After that it was very simple to just fear her right away and chain nuke her. The worst dmg she has done to my necro was 250 which is nothing since I practically regen it all before she spawns again. She also casts that stupid wizrd snare. I resist most but it's still annoying when one sticks. >.<

In between spawns I have to go look for something to kill =/ Occasionally a giant skeleton or a clops. By time I'm done with one of them she respawns and it starts over again.

I simply park my pet behind her spawn point and as soon as she spawns I sic pet to interrupt her casting, dark, fear, nuke... My nuke hit for full dmg (160) each and every time. Few resists if at all. (sides the first time I killed her) She drops the same gems ice giants do =) (topaz, flame agate, jade, silver amulets, etc). At 30 I got a half a blue each kill. I am still getting the same amount of experience at lvl 31.

No there is no faction hit (I've killed her numerous times and she's still indifferent). No the gypsies don't help. And when I feared her I *never* had an add. Btw: pathing for fear sends her through the empty tent towards the zoneline to Lake Rathe.

Hes been Buffed not Nerfed, nerfed is moving in the weaker direction. You know, thats what Verant does to us- the PC's. She does resist more often than she use to. Only 20% of the time does she soak up full dmg from spells now. I think Verant wants us to leave her alone.
Easy Exp

Camped her for a bit from level 30 to 31 on my necro. Sic pet the second she spawns and you can gank her before she puts up shielding, shieldskin damage shield etc lol. She's a wizzie so low hp ...she spawns every 6 min and drops a few plat and decent gems. No faction hit for killing her..none of the other gypsies help her..decent, easy exp. When she aggroed me often would cast silly spells like root or bonds of force which suits me just fine..Her nastiest nuke hits for 240 but her spell selection is not always the best lol.
could a 33 ranger solo her?
# Jun 09 2002 at 4:18 PM Rating: Default
My friend and I were wondering if his 33 ranger could solo this chick for some exp. He has Centi LS, Jagged Blade of Mourning, Iksar Regen Bp, and FBSS (i quit eq and gave him all my plat). Trying to help him level up over summer, think he could get decent exp?

Yes, a non-twink like him should be able to take her :P

Timed with a stopwatch. Spawns every 5 minutes 50 seconds. Get her before she buffs and it's a VERY easy kill!

A lvl 26 druid and me (27 enchanter) camped her. She was red to both of us, and went down fairly easy each time. Great exp. I have a pet so that he can interrupt her casting sometimes, and with the pet, we each get about 1/2 blue.
Druid snares her, I tashani, then I fear her. She usually casts on me, so my pet goes after her, and the druid heals us in case Fear wears off. Usually she's dead before it wears off at all. Good exp, and easy kill. She's great.

Easy exp for a 41 enchie
# Sep 24 2001 at 3:54 AM Rating: Default
killed her yesterday, was very easy:

tactic:

as soon as she spawns mesmerize her (yip, that level 4 spell).

Then tash, get some distance and nuke (i had my 2 best nukes memmed). When she takes the damage, she will:

1. cast on you, you have no chance to interupt her, so have ramapage up (rune-like, absorbs 90 dmg) and your pet will start fighting her.

or

2. she will run to you. If she does that, you can interupt her casting wth a color-spell (be sure do have enough distance from the other gypsies).

If your best nuke is up again nuke her again, else use your other nuke. Your pet is fighting her by now, one more nuke and down she goes. I took between 300 and zero damage, depending on her fighting style (melee or nuke).

With 3-4 kills i got one yellow bubble, loot is a minor gem (jade, topaz) and some pp (sometimes just a few sp).

It's easy to avoid cyclopses when fighting her this way.

All in all, it was too easy, i think you can start it at level 39, may be earlier. I will try Happ in Lesser fay next weekend with this tactic.

ups, not a yellow, but blue bubble of course ;)
Cynthia, I love you

I just made 40 from killing her for a few hours and thought I would share my experience. There are lots of wandering mobs around the gypsy camp..it took me a while to figure out a spot where they wouldn't jump me while I was medding. The spot is directly West of the camp, you should be facing East and the pass through the mountains will be to your left and behind you a bit. A cyclops will come close to you, but will leave you alone.

I timed the spawns, it is indeed 6 minutes between them every time, and she always has the exact same amount of hp. Perfect for me, I was able to cast SoW, Chloroplast and Quickness on my myself and my pet then Cannibalize...usually I had full health and full mana by the 4 minute mark, leaving me two whole minutes to sit and practice my beg skill with my dog :)

You'll want to be ready to jump her as soon as she spawns, as she frequently puts a flame shield on herself and if you're fast you can beat her to the punch.

Don't bother with any DoTs or rooting, just use your best DD over and over again till she drops. She's never fully resisted one of mine, they hit for full damage about 90% of the time.

One important thing, she doesn't like to run away as early as some other mobs. She'll have a sliver of health left and still try to cast on you. Don't make my mistake and see that she has a teeny bit of health left and think your pet can handle it from there on out. I did that and sat down to med, letting the dog bite her for a while and was hit for 240 dmg. I lived, fortunately :)

I also buffed myself with some magic and fire resist buffs, and it didnt make any difference at all.

She drops on the average 1pp and an item worth 2 pp...thats just the average though.
Pet auto-aggro?
# Jul 27 2001 at 8:21 PM Rating: Default
Anyone know if an Agnostic Erudite Mage could park his lvl 34 pet on her spawn point and have her aggro immediately upon respawn? Methinks that if this works, for that last half lvl of 34 (while i still havbe to stare at the book) then I could just start this off with a high hp Earth pet, Nullify Magic twice to remove her shield and DS then nuke and let my pet melee. After the first kill, the fight would begin before she can shield or DS herself thus making for a mana efficient fight.

She is agressive to a Iksar Necro, She glares threateningly and will attack, But I can go around the hill to the Gnome gem vender and sell there. He's indifferent to me. Go figure
Easy for Magicians
# Jul 12 2001 at 4:46 PM Rating: Default
As she is fast probably Magicians are the best at fighting her. Nuke hard and give her a pet to gnaw at. Easiest way is probably to use a LoS Bolt spell for Long Range Nuking from maximum distance, you can get two of them out even before she's had a chance to hit you. And then let the pet take over, rooting or stunning.

she must have been nurfed...she used to easy way back when and good xp...now she is a bit tougher to kill....hits for 72ish double and casts the force spell for 250 max on occasion. how can a lvl 30 wizard npc hit for 72 without a weapon hand to hand and for double attack too?...i also noticed she casts her spells without any delay hardly in re-cast time.
Wizardess, Weak, NO faction hit anymore
# Jul 11 2001 at 5:52 PM Rating: Default
I am lvl 40 mage, send double-armed pet w/burnout 2 and DS, pet keeps her off me while I nuke, 2 Blazes and she drops. Sometimes a couple plat, decent xp at 40th. 6 minute spawn timer. NO faction hit at all when she dies -- killed her many times, she still dubious. Gypsies won't help her, you can camp right by her spawn point & attack her there, no problem. Safe, easy, slow xp for 40th lvl pet casters; loot & xp seem as good as clops, but she MUCH easier to kill.
High resistance realy fst nuking rate
# Jun 28 2001 at 5:46 PM Rating: Default
I am a mage lvl 30, and I saw people kill her so I gave a shot at it to..

I started out with lowering her resistance with my debuff spell, while pet was kicking slamming and hammering on her, keeping her interupted.
I started nuking her after that. most spells hit her for very low dmg... 2 to 50 dmg instead of 173 max dmg for my nukes.
But most didn't hit at all.

Even tho my pet was on her she got of her cold based spells, and fire based spells.
I had all my buffs ative and the are VS cold and fire.. but most stil hit.

For all those who wise to try and kill her, do not try to kill her with out a good set of fire and cold based protection buffs or a very high attack speed that would keep her from casting them nukes... she will easaly burn 1000hp with in 30sec from ya health bar if ya cn't interupt her of resist her spells

Cynthia is a wizard, based on her spells attacks and buffs her self with at least 5 buffs... one of them is a fire based damage shield what she casts secondly after spawning. The first is Major shielding spell that grants her magical resistance.. so make sure ya either dispell them buffs or have engough nuking power to blast her for about 700 hit points of dmg


I hope I have bin help full

oh before I forget she is at /loc: 3960pos - 1425neg

See you hunting her all the time Samt...I concur. Great exp but loot not so great. Drops money range of sometimes a few silver to 5pp. She also drops runes, words, pages and minor gemstones on occasion.

6 min. spawn and great EXP. at lvl 35, I was getting close to 1/4 bub in 20 min. As a Shaman, I just summoned my pet, parked him near the fire, and when she spawned he would attack. I would DD her 3 times (for about 250 damage each) and she would die. Only 650-700HP i think. She's a Wiz, and some of her spells can hit really hard. There's a cold based spell that brought me down to 2 bubs of health (HP was 892). She drops 5gp-5pp. Most ppl don't know about her.

# Jul 30 2000 at 7:37 PM Rating: Decent
If you are a low lvl and are by her look out for some times she casts force shock on the closest ppl when she i dies it happen twice to me and i was wasn't helping the ppl that was killing her.
Not an enchanter
# Jun 27 2000 at 4:30 PM Rating: Decent
She is a wizard now, she casts *no* enchanter spells. She may have been an enchanter when she had her pet (when it was bugged) But she is now a wizard, I'm 98% certain of it, Ive seen her hit me with frost shocks, force shocks and ignites. She also dispels and nukes very fast. One ignite that I didnt resist dropped me 2.5 bubs at lvl 30, and my MR is 85
