Dragoon Zytl  

NPC, non-quest

Uploaded March 1st, 2021 by wiscookie

This dragoon, like all dragoons is very resistant to magic. He is the bane of light races hunting in the Commonlands, as he attacks very quickly and usually witout warning.

It has been speculated that the death of Kizdean Gix causes this Dragoon to appear..

Well he doesn't like Iksar Necros that's for sure. I was sitting in the tunnel to Befallen with my 36 Iksar Necro and he came at me full on. He resisted everything but Venom of the Snake, but I still took him out without too much trouble.

I like this guy!
As a Dark Elf Necro there aren't too many places where I'm going to get help from an NPC. W.C. is one of the few.
Last night my pet gave his life to save mine (not that he had a choice!) from the various critters that were on my tail. I knew I wouldn't make it to the zone, I was OOM, and very low on HP.
I see this SK up ahead and hit my Train hotkey and /y. I needed help, but didn't want to train the guy.
Well he and his pet lay into the critters like there's no tomorrow! They completly wiped them out. I go over to thank him and only then realize he's an NPC!

This guy was the bane of my existence as a level 15 cleric hunting in there. One time I was shopping near the lake and all of a sudden "Dragoon Zytl slashes YOU for 45 points of damage." I started to run to no evail. Now, every time I come here with my monk I kill Gix to make him spawn and KICK HIS ***!!! =P

By the way, he ALWAYS has his good ol' "Rusty Halberd" and still hits for 50+
He's a shadow knight

Had the misfortune of meeting this guy with my 22 ranger while doing the milk quest for some faction not long ago - he led off with a harm touch and had a skeleton pet and as per the new NPC "fix" uses all of the new SK spells and uses them rather nicely.

He killed a low 30s druid who was working the guards and thought he could handle the dragoon and the only thing that saved me was that I was SOWed and one of the druid's snares had held - might have been able to bow kite him if I hadn't run out of arrows.

Last night on my 35 druid I was passing through WC on my way to HHK, and this guy jumps me. I killed him easy root/dot. His pet was no problem and I took him out in 2 or 3 nukes. Kizdean does not need to be killed for him to spawn, he was up on track when I killed Zytl. He also dropped something not listed here that I forget the name of at the moment, I'll post again if I remember
No dirk

When I was a lvl 32druid (on my druid obviously)
I took out Kizdean Gix, got Zytl to spawn, and took him down, looted the dagger, and gave to my SK... I forget why I gave to my SK I dont think it is SK usable, But anyways I gave it to my SK, and then gave it to my pet.. That was stupid
I didnt mean to but these thingys happen... Anyways my ranger (New main =P hehe) has soloed Dragoon Zytl numerous ammounts of times and no dagger since, That sucks I have also Killed Dorn in Nro, He never drops any thing at all. I kill him alot passing by, I call it revenge Ahhh smells so good!!!.... I hope to get the dirk again soon...

I've had a bit of experience with this guy and gix. I was extremely excited from an rp standpoint to see the big city of freeport, I made a big deal of it by taking the boat from butcherblock. I did a bit of searching and decided I should get to know the outlying areas.

This Gix character showed me a thing or two about undercons. What interests me is after I died a paladin offered to ressurect me, killed gix then asked me if I had any track (I failed to mention I'm a ranger) of this Dragoon. I had the pet, and wandered all around trying to find the dragoon, to no avail. Came back in my 30's for some well deserved payback. Here's what I learned from my experimentation with Gix and Zytl:

1. The dragoon most definately, without a doubt is spawned by gix dying. I confirmed this countless times with track. The catcher is, he won't always show up. I tried to mark this off as coincidence, but the fact that there was no sign of him, and instantly after gix died he was there, given that this was done 15 or so times(yes..way too much time on my hands..I digress) he spawned about 12 of those 15.

2. There is a very distinct possibility that he does have indeed two items of interest. At the time of this camping I was running a 20th ranger that didnt have luclin from Greater Faydark, to Odus. I am 39 seasons and zytl is a very solid blue to me. The reason I mention this, is on this instance the spawned zytl was light blue, and to my chagrin I didnt think a 20th season and a 39th together with an lb 30ish would trivial (firiona vie) but it did..twice. It could be he had two daggers, but I'll never know for sure. After about 5 times, he dropped the dirk, it's really kind of a let down that this guy apparently isnt quest related. The dagger, is kind of a joke, but it's a constant, reliable spawn...take that for what it's worth.

3. I never once noticed zytl coming directly for the person that killed gix, unlike Droon and Proon in East Karana (granted if you back away from where you killed him, they still usually dont aggro) his total path is determined by what npcs are in his path to kill, he'll detour a good bit to stop and attack a skeleton(go figure) and the undead).

4. He always (and I mean always) spawns in the desert area near befallen, and he's a relatively fast runner (not dark assassin fast) and the spells are pretty much what gix would throw at you.

So, theres all I learned for a couple of hours of curious vengeance, maybe someday this will be useful for something.

Anyone that wants vengeance on the Dragoon or gix on the Firiona Vie server, look me up. I never get tired of payback. It's best served...often.

Excellent post.

You are correct about everything you said. I would only like to make a small correction in that Kizdean Gix is not really a PH but a trigger for spawning Zytl, there is a difference, especially since they don't spawn in the same place.

Gix and Zytl are both undercons. Gix is a necro without a pet (always). Zytl is a shadowknight and will summon a pet sometimes if left alone.

He won't always spawn after killing Gix but if he does you are correct in that he immediately spawns right outside of the entrance to Befallen where the grass stops and the sand begins. Some people think he spawns near the lake and this just isn't true. For some reason he will always start running towards the lake immediately upon spawning (unless he casts a pet and then he will start running) so I can understand where this thinking began.

He is a fast runner, and he will tear any of the people hunting in WC for experience a new one (with the exception being anyone who is camping the shawdowed men in the corner). That having been said save yourself some leg work and save the lives of a couple of the low-teens players in the zone and follow one of these 2 suggestions...

1) Have a partner (or a pet) and attack Gix together at first. When Gix is getting low, have one person (the pet if you have one) stay to finish him and one person run over the hill to Zytl's spawn point to aggro him immediately after he spawns to keep him from running towards the lake and to keep him from casting a pet also.

2) If soloing (without a pet) pull Gix over to Zytl's spawn point and kill him there so you can aggro Zytl right when he spawns. You run added risk here since Gix will unload all his spells on you before he will move which could be considerable damage depending on your level.

Having killed Zytl several dozen times, I can say that his loot is limited to a rusty halberd (almost always) and the dragoon dirk. I would agree with the estimate that the dirk drops about 1 in 5 times, maybe a little less.

That's my Smiley: twocents, have fun turning him into a dark elf grease spot too Smiley: grin.

Last night, I was doing an errand for an alt, working on a newbie armor quest. After getting out of Nektulos Forest, setting foot in WC making my way to North Ro, I notice that something had attacked me from behind. Needless to say,"??? wtf" I turned around, it was this guy. It had a nice set of armor, a dirk and a halberd also has a pet. I managed to beat him and his pet up. Too bad I wasn't able to strip everything from him got a dragoon dirk and a rusty halberd out of this encounter. I hope, I did some kind of justice for somebody by killing him and his pet.

You did justice for me. I was there last night, with low mana, and few buffs up (after all, it's a newbie zone) and he almost killed me. Good thing he doesn't run fast. I was able to high-tail it back to the East Commons. At level 31, with a centi SS and a WoFS, I thought I could take him easy. But he hits hard and fast. He's definitly on my list of people to kill everytime I run through that zone.

Gix and Zytl
# Sep 04 2002 at 1:49 PM Rating: Decent
Last night I was camping shadowed men for some thing or other that a guild mate needed for the jboots quest, when my pal dies , this goon aggroes me. He was green to me at 29 but still took my warrior to half life. I killed him on the wiz pad and sat there to bind when all of the sudden I get wacked from behind by Dragoon Zytl and his friggin pet. He was dark blue to me, so I knew I would die. I did die. I agree with the statement that Gix's death causes this dragoon to spawn, so tonight I will be camping gix and this ******* with my guild mates.

I've been hunting in WC for a week or two. Frequent that place because of the camps, Wisps, and the high odds of getting buffs.

Gix has been standing near the Toll Gate for the last week or so (even through the hell of updates we had on 9/4). I can tell for certain that Gix is not related to Zytl. I ran into this guy when he decided to slay the Plains Cat I was attacking. Thought it odd that a player blatantly try to steal my kill....then he turned on me. (I am still learning about the light blue name/dark blue name thing). Well, I kicked on my Selo and hauled A@$. I figured I'd try and get the guards at the gate to kill Zytl...No good. Guess being assigned to a remote location like that kinda makes you reluctant to do anything. Then I turned towards Gix. I blew right passed him (never agro'd me) but he didn't attack Zytl either. Eventually he feared me. I lagged/locked and died. When I went back I found my corpse UP in a tree. I have a screenshot if someone wants to see that. I sear, sometimes these npc's have a personality...But to the point. I have seen both Gix and Zytl up at the same time.

They can be up at the same time if there has been sufficient time for Gix to repop. Killing Gix is defnitely the trigger for the Xytl pop, as my ranger did this religiously at about 35. I love arrow kiting him after rooting his pet.

When i was a lvl 6 ranger i was lucky enough to get a port to get a port to WC and was very happy about seeing my friend's main there. When i got there we went fishing. Suddenly im double attacked for a total of about 300 damage and killed. Since i didnt have a bind i was sent all the way back to Queynous Hills with none of my stuff. I can't wait until i can reach a higher level and can kill that freak...

Okay....now I know you are ALL going to laugh at me, but that's alright. Well, I am a lvl 14 Druid and I came to EC thinking "Heck yeah Will-O-whips rock my XP," so I bound myself by the inn. BAD MOVE! Well, right now this ****** is running around killing me at my spawn spot because I killed so many orcs in CB and my faction is HORRIBLE!!!! So....I have already died 4 times and I am about to revistit lvl 13. Sucks don't it? I swear my new goal in life is to be lvl 40 and come back and kick his delf butt! Hahahaha! Hey, at least I have motivation now!

Got my @$$ handed to me by this guy last night. I was selling to vendors at Inn near toll booth when all of a sudden I get whacked for 70+hps 4 times in a row. I started for the EC zone just to make the CR that much easier when someone casted SOW on me (whew!) I made it to EC with under 100hp left.

Anyway, I don't recall any armor on Zytl - just a darkie in a robe (and his pet). Is the pic above right?

# May 21 2002 at 6:29 AM Rating: Default
I Was playing my DE Necro (60th Season, Hehe) and i was sitting with a little wood elf buddy of mine (level 22 or something at the time) when i had to go AFK, and when i got back, i noticed that my little buddy was gone, and all that was left was his corpse, so i scrolled up and saw that this dragoon ******* had killed him, so i went on the hunt, i whipped out the old spectre and kicked his *** once, twice n 3 times over
# May 13 2002 at 12:38 PM Rating: Default
Finally got revenge upon this nasty mob. I found that poison based DD and DoTs work very well on this mob. I did notice that as soon as I killed his buddy Kizdean Gix, about a minute later I heard cries from a player on a CR that he's being chased by Zytl. At last my chance to get revenge. I commanded my pet to play with Zytl's pet while I wipe the floor with Zytl's hide.

I was lvl 28 minding my own business than I see this pud Zytl, I ask whether I can take him, you know ooc. Everyone says i will die in a minute. I engage him, he fears me, it breaks. I unsheath my Wurmy, pull on my Mithril, wiggle my fingers and wipe the floor with 'em. He has less than half and I have 3 bubs left so i figure he be dead, sadly he fears me again but it sticks to long I lose to much life and havta run to befallen. I looked back and he was 1/4 dead and I was 3hp from death. Needless to say when he has you feared you ARE his ******. But remember he can be taken at 30 easily enough. Next time I see him when I am 30 he will die and my Klingon swear word Necro will have a decent dagger.

Well, I knew about Gix even been killed a time or two by him (now i kill him and dorn ever chance i get ) any ways i was in wc the othere night thinking all but the shadow men and gaints i could take pretty much any thing in the zone, so i was just fooling around killing some bears trying to make some easy plat and buffing newbies as i when by when i see what i thought was a pc Darkie sk well even though i am a pally was just going to say hi when he attacked me he coned blue so with him and he's pet i thought it my not be so easy . when i seen how hard he was hiting i warned every one i was taking him to ec zone line , there i kill his pet ( may have been my bigest mistake cause the pet dont realy hit that hard but Dragoon dose) after killing the pet and LOH my self i started to work on him got him down to about 1/2 hp but by that time he had me at 60hp so i zoned

I was in WC and got attacked by him doing one of the Pally quests. I'm lvl 44 and he is light blue to me, pet was green. Took him out first then easy pet kill. It was a great pleasure killing that SOB. Him and Kizdean.
You are right Paladin's will have their day.
