CWG Model EXG  

a rare creature

Uploaded September 23rd, 2018 by Drewinette

This gnome robot is very magic resistant, careful if you're a caster soloing him.

Not 100% MR!

Reading the posts and soloing in the exg area for a long time I've learned that the exg is not 100% MR. Although you probably will have a very hard time getting a root to stick, i've had my Icewurm fang proc and land on him. its got considerable lower Cold Resists.

MR = Magic Resist
Icewurm Fang Proc = Cold Resist

Magic Resist <> Cold Resist
I killed her as a 43 SK

Well, you all were right about the 20 mins on the dot. I'd never realized she spawned here and accidentally ran into her coming back from soloing with my pet at the gnome fortress. Sure enough, she resisted all of my spells, including lifetap, but I managed to throw up my shieldskin spell a couple of times so she didn't wipe the floor with me. The first time she dropped the BP and the second time she dropped the shield. I was very pleasantly surprised at the loot and overall EXP since very little in Sol A gives me EXP any more. Just my to cp... hope this helps out.

Tried a variety of spells; Root, Ice Comet, Snare, Draught of Jiva... all 100% resisted. Lures were the only thing I could get to stick; 2x Lure of Frost was enough to kill this mob. Just back up against a wall and keep casting lure till you kill it.

The placeholders are either a CWG Model CA, a CWG model MA or a CWS Model SX (Spider). The spawn time is 20 minutes on the dot.

There are two spawn points which include either side of the bridge leading to the gnome outpost. If it's on the far side, it will walk toward the outpost until it hits the courtyard, then will walk back. If it's on the near side, it will walk to the pickaxe/bucket room, then walk back.

If it spawns on the far side of the bridge it will be hidden by the wall, so don't worry if you don't see it after 20 minutes. When the EXG spawns it usually carries the shield, if it doesn't, that means that she may be carrying the breastplate. I've never seen her drop both and I've never seen her drop nothing, I'm pretty sure it's either the BP or the shield every time.

Hope this helps.

As a 41 SK she con'd Dark Blue to me. I was runing around farming some suplies for myself I came up on her. I started to fight her and agro'd 3 other clockworks all Dark Blue con's. So I FD'd let them leave and went to heal up. At 50% HP She wondered over where I was Hiding and started attacking. I said ok why not and ended up slaughtering her. I only lost 400hp total from her. She droped the BP.

#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 27 2002 at 10:21 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This post rely as little to with this mob per-say...however - to those that think a wiz cant solo to them I say bull...I have soloed wizzards 4 times to 60th level (on 4 different servers) and am woking on my 5th one (at 39th now) on Bris..Ganted that if the mob is highly magic resestent that makes for problems...but to say that it cant be done (in my opinion) is just short of out-and-out lie. All my wizzies went all the way 95% solo (most did group through 30th - but that was more for time then need). And here is an added kick...they were all HUMAN ! ! !

As a 49 druid, she resisted every spell I cast on her, including my fire resistance debuff. Luckily, I had myself DSed and Chloroed. That, mark my words, is the ONLY way a druid can kill her. Clerics need not apply to trying to solo her. As for the 36th level guy who tried to kill her, it was a tough fight for me, and my 1hs is almost maxed, offense and defense are totally maxed. For a mob that drops a druid/cleric useable item that they can't kill, she sure is tough. Like I said, NOTHING landed on her. Not even snare when she ran. I almost died when she ran to a trio of goblins which spawned while she was killing herself on my DS. But, now I finally have something in my offhand other than that stupid book that I've been lugging around since 23. As for the guy posting that druids shouldn't melee... No, we shouldn't, but sometimes there is not an option, and I didn't want to ask my friends to come to a zone full of greens to help me get this when we're hunting Maiden's...

Having camped this gal numberous times, I can assure you her spawn is caused by one of the three spawns in Gabbie's room. Although not Gabbie herself, it is most definetly a CA or MA spawn, possibly the CWG that drops the Stout liquid. Needless to say, if you are looking to whack either EXG or her PH, then it is most definetly one of the spawns in Gabbie's room...if not Gabbie herself.

Her spawn has nothing to do with anyone or anything else in the zone. I have killed the EXG many many times and have been the only one in the zone while doing it, killing nothing else but her or her placeholder.

As for tips: Druids with their 2 damage shields, and negligible melee skills should be able to do her no problem. I think I was above 44 and nothing else aggroed. Fight her on the bridge, where she spawns. When she walks, just sit down, she will come back sooner or later. Just sit as soon as she walks. I think I usually had to heal myself once per fight. Good luck.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 30 2001 at 6:32 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Your gonna keep your damage shield up huh? Melee druid at 36 eh? No wonder it was a tuff solo and you ended up toast. Your a caster. Some tree huggers just dont seem to get it.
I wonder?

I'm a 31 ENC and hangout with a 30 CLR and a 32 WIZ. With that said, I wonder if she has been altered since they changed the way they (verant) make mobs resists spells. Now she might be resistant to specific spells. Either way, with my pet getting healed a my DS on it and the WIZ DS on it and my Tashani, I think we might have to go try her out. I'll post when I know

That might work fine, except for adds, but the last part of your idea will not, if you try to cast Tashani on her she WILL resist that spell like all the others, DS and melle is the only way to kill this chick so buff up your pets and grab a tank.
#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 22 2001 at 3:26 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Well I have been reading all of these posts and have yet to see a HP estimate. I am a 52 Wizard and if the EXG's Hps are low enough it can be soloed by using lure or enticement (low magic resist spells). Does anyone think that I would have no chance at this? Please tell me.

Wizzies can't solo?

I've been soloing since lvl 40, just need to get your aoe snare and aoe dd out, then grab a sow (or use jboots if you have them) and go quad some stuff

Yeah, this would be real easy for a cleric? You think wizzies are hard to solo, try a cleric's life. At least you have decent nukes against non-magic resistant mobs. I guess, I could try healing myself and meleeing him down at 16 pts per round. Of course, I'd die, when I ran out of mana, and he still was 80% life. There are a few classes that don't solo well, yours and mine top the list. However, they are also most sought after in a group. If you want to solo some, start a mage, necro or druid, and save the wizzy for groups, where his power shines.

Oh wow, you could not be any further from the truth. Granted against this mob you may have a point, but clerics are awesome at soloing.
You just have to be a little more creative.

Firstly pick undead...those spells are much better (mana/dmg ratio). Your DD's against normal mobs are nice, but you will go oom very quickly.

Secondly, if you were smart enough to pick a Dark Elf, get the Innoruuk symbols (neck piece - guild quest). The lvl 30 line of this necklace has a darkness spell. Take that and your fear spell and you can fear kite Specs around Oasis till you are almost lvl 50.

Thirdly ROOT, BLAST, BLAST, ROOT, BLAST, BLAST. (if in trouble blind) Yes build up melee skills, but lets be realistic now, the day a cleric (without top end weapon) kills an xp giving mob using a hammer/staff only, is far off.

A cleric is not as easy to solo as say a nec or a monk, but please don't make clerics seem as if they are worthless without a group.
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 12 2001 at 10:07 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Monks cant solo much higher mobs than 30 or so, with low they cant take hits and even tho they deal dmg fast they are not tanks and would likely die.

Ok, this is almost enough to make me sick. A wizzy that can't solo a mob.. Bummer... Warriors probably couldn't so this thing at lvl 40. Boohoo for the wizard.

Ohhhh you poor poor wizzes found something that you cant solo. As a tank reading this I almost had to hurl chunks. Have you ever played a straight tank? give it a go then repost about what a soloing machine you are then.
#Anonymous, Posted: Nov 27 2001 at 7:24 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) what? wizard = tank? a straight tank? wizard = straight tank and you must be gay tank. how gay you must be. and why cant you guys just call them wizards. the time it takes you to type those extra one or two letters is really not that long.
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 27 2002 at 5:19 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hey, pay attention. The guy that posted regarding the straight tank was talking about himself. HE plays a straight tank and he was suggesting the Wizzie give it a try to see what problems soloing are all about. Sheesh

What about aggro

does everything around here aggro when u attack one of the models?
RE: What about aggro
# Oct 09 2001 at 6:11 AM Rating: Good
Even at 44, all the other clockworks still joined in if they're close by when you attack one. However, this can actually help since the very low level greens can't do much damage, but the fact that they are there means that the higher level mob (for example the EXG) doesn't try to run and fights to the death; you can then quickly take out the green add.

Dark Elves arent the best warriors in the game. But i play one and with the rigt equipment you can tank just as good as an ogre. Dark Elves should rely on their secondary stats like agi. Invest in some Crusty armor you'll make it.

#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 02 2001 at 1:05 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Dark elves are not the best warriors.. if you wanted an evil warrior go Iksar, Ogre or Troll.. Iksar have AGI, and Ogre and trolls have STA and STR.. Also BARDS are great for tanks.. not made for just support.. I know I will take a bard as a tank any day, so their Hp should be up there.
RE: Sucs for me
# Oct 02 2001 at 3:39 AM Rating: Default
Umm.. Not to say you are totally wrong but as a bard I would not even attempt Tanking unless the warrior/pally/sk/monk died and i was all that was between the Mob and the casters and I would be able to buy enough time to save them. Other than that ill remain in support mode, or just kite and solo.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 27 2001 at 12:53 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) LMAO - Bards tank... I'm 47 bard and have 1043 hp naked... that about as many as most level 30 warriors!!
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 02 2001 at 7:59 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) oh yes, forgot one thing... being a cleric, I'm the best class to ask about who can tank and who can't. It's my job to know how much HP a player has and calculate how fast their HP bar goes down, most clerics don't do that. My friend tells me that most clerics he groups with just use complete heal when a person is at half hp, the class not mattering... Other groups, she says that clerics cast celestial heal when player is at 1 bubble of hp, bad idea since celestial heal doesn't heal to it's potential at the first second you cast it... anyway... I got off topic again. Bard hp goes down fast, just because bards wear plate armor doesn't mean they can tank.

RE: Sucs for me

Get your STA up... Warriors NEED Sta... 5 STA = 40 HP; It also makes for longer battels... Also, get your AGI up, and obviously, your STR... These are the three most important stats for a Warrior
