You will be better off waiting a level. I, 20th enchanter, get away with about 50% health and pet next to nothing...hits in the range for max of 35 to 48 and sometimes double attacks.

He will also have thorns up...so for a wiz I strongly suggest root and nuke, and hope you have enough mana to burn him to the ground. He has a somewhat high resistance to magic attacks. I, chanter, cast Tashani on him to start the fight and STILL not all of my attacks land for full and lots are STILL resisted. So go with fire or cold based attacks as a wiz.
I kill you

The actual scentence is "I am here to kill you" its just that for simplicity, "kill", and "you" are the keywords, so any scentence with those 2 in them will work

I was killing him last night, alternating with a necro. I often, tho not always, got a -Unkempt Druid hit. Nothing about the Qeynos guards. The necro said he was not getting any faction hit at all.

The key words are "kill you". You can say any sentence you like, so long as it contains "kill you". It occaisionally took several attempts before he would aggro.

Nice night, until I was killed by a wandering werewolf. All my time in SK, and I had never seen one there before.

A fellow druid told me that killing this guy makes you (if you're a druid) KOS to NPC bards. I don't know.. he said it was hell and that he spent forever repairing his faction after just one kill. I don't know.. but I think I'll just kill something else ;)

When I first started camping the Hermit awhile back when EQ was first released there used to be a Splitpaw Gnoll wondering around the outside of the wall. I think when they switched Splitpaw over , that gnoll was switched as well. He has always been there and used to attack if you sit too close to the wall. Therefore I don't think he was intended as a PH or deterant for campers. Also becareful and resist the urge to exploit that area with either the gnoll or the Hermit. I've seen a few ppl get caught and busted for that so I've always been able to resist the urge quite easily ) Aslo I remembered a faction hit, an increase(+) with Qeynos Guards and a decrease(-)with Unkempt Druids, did they change it to no faction hit?

what do you mean by "exploit the area"?
# Jun 16 2000 at 9:17 PM Rating: Decent
Ok, the way to get him to come out EVERY time is to stand in right corner of chimmney and house, then say "kill you" however, you must have NOTHING targeted, to lose your target press your ESC button on keyboard, he then will come running out and drop his FS or PP

I like to go to the door and look through the crack to target him, its kinda hard to get the right angle. Being a mage, ( but any caster can do this), I run out of the wall, and while still targeted, I stand back about 20 to 30 feet, and Nuke. Then, pet attack, the pet will keep him busy for about 3 casts, then he comes after you. This is the downside. The taunts from the pet don't work very often, and he hits for 40-45 pts.
Make sure you med outside the wall, again 20 or 30 feet from the wall, or a some kind of gnoll will come and kill you inside. Very easy to kill, once you get a rhythm.

I was informed by a GM last night that when you pull with the Kill You phrase, he comes out the chimney and that is a legal pull. Hitting him with a spell or bard song brings him through the wall, and according to this GM on Luclin, it is illegal to pull a spawn through a wall. Don't ask me why because I don't know and she wouldn't tell me. I was using bard AoE songs to pull and she said that was illegal. Where these rules are written down is unknown.

Ocassionally the hermit is bugged, when you say I kill you he doesnt come out of the house. The only way to fix is to have a druid come in, take tree form by the front door to access inside the house and kill him from the inside. After that the bug should be fixed for a while.

You can click on him from the door, or you can keep sitting next to the wall until you can see through it and click on him.

The loc for the hermit is Neg 5500, Neg 2600. I think... It's a little north east of aviak city. 19 druid can solo him, snare, dot, dd. =o) tons of fun, usually camped though.

First off, can I solo this guy as a 19th lvl mage. Second, where is this he at. I've been hunting this zone for awhile but never took the time to find him
i can kill it

i have killed the hermit many times... he is easy to hit with my lvl 16 spells... rarely resists. just fear him inside and he will stick to the wall and you can let pet kick his but while the dots whip him

He has no faction positive or negative. @0th lvl Magician can easily solo him with about 50%mana left and pet at around 30%health.

Iam lvl 18 Mage and A Hermit cons yellow to me, i say to pet sit down and in the edge "kill you" and with 4 Blasts he goes down, what a big exp and loot spawn, wow, never seen better places now-:)
But sometimes the Pet goes to Zone Entrance Nord Karana and come back the whole way, i d to wait for some minutes still it reached me, its possible u say kill you and ur pet is away, byebye, bind urself near, hehe.
I love Magicans, its so easy and safe at the Hermit house-:)

Shaman Hunting

As a Shaman I couldn't not pull Him useing the line "I kill you" or any varation of that. There are a couple of other ways I found to pull him out of his hut. One is by targeting myself and casting an Area effect Dot spell. The other is to share the spawn with another person. Both people sit near the house and when the hermit pops he will cast a Damage shield. Target the second person and use the /assist command. This puts the hermit in your target. Then just pull with a DD or Dot spell. He resists root and other debuffs a lot but is really easy to dot. He gives good loot and great Exp (I got about a bubble an hour camping him myself at lvl 24). Its a really boring camp though. Oh and there is NO Faction hits although he shouts something that looks like faction as his is dieing.
Soloing at 20 or less
# Apr 16 2000 at 3:46 PM Rating: Decent
A mage can solo the hermit at 20 or less, if she is careful. The new DD at 20 can't really be used, because she can't afford the mana loss at mistargeting, so she's using her lvl 16 DD. This can be nicely coupled with a cancel magic starter, which helps the pet survive.
RE: Soloing at 20 or less

The hermit can be effectively soloed at level 16 by a an experienced mage. Summon a good pet, cast your pet buff on him, med to full. Then park your pet outside by the trees, run inside and target him through the very narrow crack between the door and the doorjam. Run outside and cast shock of fire on him...send in pet. Lather rinse repeat.

Happy leveling. Watch out for the occasional gnoll running by...he WILL hit you through the wall if you sit inside where the hermit is.

Are there any faction adjustments for killing this hermit?
The hermit

I soloed this guy from 21-28. Made 7 levels in one week :)

The methodology for pulling him is quite simple. Stand to the right of the chimney and say, "I will kill you."
He will respond with, "So be it! Fool!"
And the battle begins....

BTW, a Shaman can solo this punk at Level 22.

#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 07 2000 at 1:38 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Probably 24, cuz then u get regen and cannibalize, which reduces roundtime a lot, and the regen will keep u from dying.
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 20 2000 at 9:40 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) About what level do ya think a Shaman could solo the hermit?
oh yeah
# Mar 14 2000 at 3:44 AM Rating: Decent
the key sentence is and i quote " I kill you" The sentence makes no sense at all. Maybe if it was I will kill you then it would okay, but I kill you?
come on thats just broken english!
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 14 2000 at 3:42 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) he is in the house twit. You have to do a little song and dance to make him come out. (Say the key sentence and he comes right out to kill you)
Tesch Mal Gnoll Placeholder for Hermit?
# Mar 03 2000 at 5:11 PM Rating: Decent
Is this Tesch Mal gnoll a placeholder for the hermit? When I ernt there once to chjeck him out, he was next to his hut. Later, with my pet, I came to kill him, but he wan't there. Waited about 10 minutes. I saw the gnoll wandering around, and avoided him. The whole time, the hermit didn't show. I was the only one there. Left when the gnoll jupmed me though.
