Umm, am I insane or what. Been camping out on lvl 3 of runny eye by myself. I have all my Combat stats maxed out for my lvl (140 Def/Off, Piercing @ 113 plus all my buffs and Nukes). Been doing really well on lvl 3 (Sporili mobs). I have only died once by letting a greenie get away and bringing back a mob of evil eyes (I was near the evil eye prison at the time). I have my channelling maxed which has SAVED MY BUTT a number of times (because I can gate when things get hairy). Exp is GOOD but a little slow, as I play it safe and never pull again until my HP is 100% and mana above 75%. As for buffs, I only use Spirit of the Ox, Regen and Frenzy. Sporali hit for around 25 (50 on criticals), and only connect 50% of the time when I use frenzy. I use the Rune Etched Wurm Fang spear and hasted (21%) gear, which is why Spirit of the Ox is important (use up stamina bar quick). When things get hairy I NEVER run, I gate instead.

Rules of thumb: 1 - gate if mobs can do more then 150 pts of damage while Im stunned (doesnt matter how much hp I have) 2 - never take on evil eyes (yet) 3 - never let anything run away from you (as they will come back in force) 4 - use magic sparingly (save for emergencies) 5 - if you have to use magic, never let your mana go down to where you cannot gate.

A solo or group (of toons my level) has to have a lot of discipline to do runnyeye. I have seen posts of people soloing this area at 45+. PLEASE - - this area is rated to lvl 35. It would be like me taking on Emperor Crush and his minions of orcs, NO CONTEST!

that is sad

I have to say that group is major overkill. I wiped the entire zone..all 4 lvls with my 52 BST as I was looking for items for my Alt. As you get a faction hit yes all the greens attack you on site. Neeless to say the only thing that hit me for any damage were the two big eyes. All in all I wiped the zone without havig to heal myself or my pet and I am not twinked above my lvl. This is a very easy dungeon is all. Never saw the King though...guess I scared him off. BTW don't accidentally kill the I did..doh!

Went to Runnyeye last night to get my wife's 34 cleric the black ALLOY medallion, as an upgrade to her black iron medallion (the old version), for the extra WIS and mainly, the FOCUS fx on it.

We were fully buffed(53 pally, 43monk, 51 druid, 34 cleric), and know the zone well enuf.

Thing to remember is there are lots of nuisance mobs, that agro when they see you. The pally was leading the way, and killing em fast by himself (monk and druid and cleric were pretty much just following as the mobs were dropping so fast). EVEN at 53, EVERYTHING jumped me. EVERYTHING.

We killed our way to the bank. changed our coins in for plats, and had to kill the banker ( he was attacking me the whole time I was banking with him, but he STILL let me bank. ROFL). He even said "thank you, come again" as he was trying to kill me (had to laugh). We went back out of the bank, and Lo and behold> the Goblin King was heading straight towards us, and was not looking happy. I didnt know he roamed, but what the heck> we were looking for him when we came here, and luckily, I guess he was looking for us. We bagged him pretty easily, and got our cleric her upgrade. He was the first mob our druid or monk even got to play with. He lasted almost a minute, before he decided to retire, but compared with the other mobs lasting 20 to 30 seconds, he is a bit tougher.

Morale of the story> even though we were more than high enuf to play around in here (EVERYTHING was low green), had to kill everything that saw us. If you are vis> you WILL get pestered by greenies! Dont come underpowered. If you are getting EXP from these mobs, I think you need a strong group ( they are a bit of an undercon, IMHO).

Be prepared, and have fun. Good Luck.

i was in there last night and had no problem with anyone. im a lvl 35 warrior and everything but the eyes conned green to me. the eyes conned blue but i was still able to defeat. the only problem was that there was a lot of down time being that there wasnt a healer with me. but the armor is a good drop for a new character. anyone know of a special npc that drops anything in particular? i got the mail, 1 bracer, and waist in about 2 hours

How do I get the Updated Mask
# Sep 06 2001 at 11:49 PM Rating: Decent
I just saw the post saying this item had been nerfed!

I currently have the previous version of the Grotesque Mask( 3AC, +7dex, -9CHA), which I bought from someone. I am a lvl 40 SK.

After seeing this post I tried camping it. I went to room 3 on Runnyeye lvl 4 from map on EQ Atlas where the Goblin King is supposed to spawn according to the map. According to the info on the item, the Goblin King and 3-4 spawns are supposed to spawn here. This room is barely big enough to hold one spawn.

I killed every greenie that I saw on lvl 4 of runnyeye, and could not get the King to spawn after 6 hours.

Did Verant change Runnyeye like they did Befallen or what?

I would love to get this mask!

Both Runneye and Befallenhave been changed back. The next projects i heard theyare working on are changing the guks, adding the zone under LOIO, and are supposed to make a zone or three in the old world be taken of by a faction of dragons.

Me and a friend 45rng and 43wizard decided to go on down to runnyeye and get us a BABS u would be suprised how hard it is even at that level to get around in there without invis. (camo cannot be used)He wanted to kill the goblin lord who drops the BABS so we ended up training everything from upstairs to the downstairs. There must of been a 150 golbins no lie. Thank God for the ranger's high Mr resist because he was getting nuked and resisted like 300times it was unbelievable. Just sayin to all you folks out there dont try this unless your a high as mess warrior or a very good mage.

Now, you and a friend, both middle 40 level, were runiing around in runnyeye with things aggroing on you? I have a level 44 Shaman that can walk all over Runnyeye without aggroing a single mob. Is your faction REALLY bad with Pickclaw maybe?

I hope for your own sake you're fooling around. At 53 you could probably let him swing at ya for 30min or so and just heal and then whoop his as without magic.
Wrong Mob
# Apr 13 2001 at 2:09 PM Rating: Default
The Goblin King in Runnyeye is not the mob who drops the Blackened Sapphire (if he does drop it, it sounds like a very rare drop). Anyway, the BS is dropped in Najena by a named human (sorry can't remember his name), location is outside of Rathyl's locked room.
RE: Wrong Mob
# Apr 20 2001 at 7:32 PM Rating: Default
The Blackeend Sapphire, for the Monk quest, is dropped off a human thief (least according to the NPC's story he's a thief, haven't fought 'im yet) in Najena named Ekeros...and no, it's not the same as the Black Sapphire used for making jewelry which drops in Hate.

I have camped this guy for 20 hours over two days and have not seen this drop. I have seen three crowns but no Skull Shapped Barbute. Has anyone seen this drop?
RE: Skull Shaped Barbute
# Mar 15 2001 at 5:32 AM Rating: Default
Skull Shaped Barbute drops off the Lord in Lower Guk as the common drop (yak is the rare).
RE: Skull Shaped Barbute
# Mar 18 2001 at 6:13 PM Rating: Default
i've killed this guy tons of times, never dropped the SSB. maybe someone gave him one as a joke, and so it dropped after he was killed.

I was just messing around in Runnyeye one fine day. I saw a lonesome goblin shaman around the corner and decided to pick a fight with him. About 3/4 of the way through the fight he decided it was time to run. I was oom and could not snare him. I didn't think much of it and let him go like a dummy. He must have run to his monarch for help because 2 mins later he came back, and he brought his leader with him for protection. I knew I was prob. going to get my **** handed to me, seeing as how druids aren't the best meleeers in the game. Anyway I got the king down to half-life before I ate it. Not bad for a meleeing druid huh?

A level 25 mob will still con blue to a level 34 - they start conning green at 10 levels lower once you hit your level.

His level is higher than stated ..I fought him and both times he conned blue to my 34th season paladin..

He might be a little higher but not much, level 29 PC's con blue to my 35 Warrior and I'm sure slightly lower do too
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 05 2000 at 11:50 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) LOL! Some people are stupid - At level 34, paladins can't solo a 25 (except undead), especially when they run the dungeon. The paladin will get wasted.

If you make it to the King room, there are 4 elites that spawn along with the king. The king can be pulled into the hallway leading to the room without agrro'ing all the elites. Get a caster to cast root or DOT on him to pull him from a distance in the hall. To do this, have someone invis and go open the door and run back. As the door is open, target the king. when the door closes, you can still cast on the king. (nice huh!). Most of the time the king and 1 or 2 of the elites will come. BUT!!! sometimes you get all, and sometimes just the king, so dont bet your life on it!! I have killed the king like that for a long while solo and rarely run into trouble. BEWARE, if you are not high enough level for the wandering goblins in the hall to be green, you will have trouble with this method. Note, same can be done with the warlord (PULL thru door after targeting) if you have a druid to harmony, both are easy. Casters, you need to invis to med in the hallway and you are safe to med in the warlord room if you have killed the 2 elites and the warlord, no straglers go in there from my experience.

Pretty crappy strategy
First off - You were saying nothing would aggro at the beggining, then in the middle you say everything will aggro. It doesn't take someone very smart to figure out that your root and DoT and it will kill him pretty fast.
Second - Harmony is outdoors ONLY
Third - Stop acting like you know everything. You are level 37. You have to be damn stupid if they actually bought this strategy.

#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 16 2001 at 1:03 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) First of all, Venomfist, I read the strategy you so rudely tongue lashed, and I don't see anywhere where the author feels he knows everything. You are just being a typical high level, and think that YOU know everything. Don't lash a person for trying to help others. If the strategy worked for him, then it obviously works. Remember folks, this is just a game.

No kidding, go lashe someone your own level. Actually this stratagie does work rather well for me a 35 Ranger. Or at leaast for the most part. Yea, harmoney doesn't work indoors, nor does my camo. However, nearly nothing outside the room will agro on me at 35. (excludeing the ocasional EE ofcourse; and one or two of the green goblin types) I have found the easiest way to get the king out is to pick a fight with one of the greenies outside the door and down the hall a bit. Once they run I let them go and they follow the pathing straight to the king. He will then coem right to you, and leave his buddies in the room.
I back up to the intersection and then drop the king and the 'bait'; I use my tracking to see when he pops again.
Now I will add; if you have a little accident like I did one night you might want to plan the corpse recovery in advance. For some strange reason when I went for my corpse it wasn't there! In fact my corpse end up on a different level altogether! Had I realized this I would have pititioned, but I didn't know it was a bug and it was a real nightmare trying to find it. Of course the EE dropped me like a fly naked and poorly armed. Certianly before I go in again I will pick up a few invisibility potions and some semi decent gear and bank it for retrival in Rivervale were I will bind; I will also make sure I have a shadowknight/necro buddy online and semi-available to help just incase I go to get my corpse and it isn't there.
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 27 2001 at 8:18 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) No kidding. What are you doing even waisting your time looking at strategies for Runnyeye. Thats like me reading all the strategies to hunt in Misty Thicket. Get a life.

i've been camping the king room trying to get a set of BI for my rogue. The king hits for 50's and has about 600-700 hps. I've practically gotten a medallion every kill and 4 grotesque masks so far, and only one crown. Hope that helps!

At 35 I was pulling the king room to zone, and conned his majesty befor every fight. Most of the time, he was a greener, but on occasion, he conned a very low blue. I believe he may be as high as 28 or 29 sometimes.
