Beware of the silence spell

105 Solo Magician, Silver with Air Pet

I didn't read all the prep on this guy, so when I dived in, the Silence spell got me by surprise and I was somewhat at a loss what to do. Being paralyzed and having loads of adds, I went down in a snotty heap.
The Silence neutralises casters and healing mercs as soon as you agro Larrow, I tried using Mirror on myself to no avail but in the end the solution was quite simple.
I simmered in the lobby overnight and returned all buffed up, however, I had an "accident" whilst clearing the roamers and had to resummon pet before engaging Larrow. Buffed up pet with all my delayed heal and Aegis clickies, then engaged agro with Remoreseless Servant swarm pet then main pet joined in.
The swarm pet held the agro and allowed Fluffy to finish off Larrow without any loss of HP.
Knowing this now, I reckon a lower ranking pet could do this solo. If the spawn wasn't so rare I'd have loved to tried this again with a water pet to backstab Larrow. Maybe the next mage at the farm can give this a go?

Annoying mob

PBAOE Silence spell is always annoying. I tackled this guy just with my warrior merc because he happened to be up when I happened to be in the zone. After reading the posts here about his scarcity I figured I'd better add him to my Hunter Accomplishments when I had the chance. Sure enough, despite being LB his silence makes him a tougher mob and I had to evac out after my merc RAN OFF LIKE THE COWARDLY RED SKELETON HE IS! (No Xmas bonus of bones for him this year!) Fortunately the zone is bindable. I bound on the farm (and that term I use very loosely since "dustbowl" would be more descriptive) just outside Larrow's massively demented agro range.

Then I ported to my guild hall and recruited my warrior and wizard ALTS and they popped their own wizard mercs. I dumped Red Skeleton, my cowardly "tank" merc (more like empty tank merc) and called up my own wizard merc. One druid, one well-equipped warrior, four wizards. I doubt Larrow can silence all four of these wizards ESPECIALLY AS THEY'RE ALL FEMALES! Smiley: grin Who has every seen 4 women in one group SILENCED? Not in this lifetime... Smiley: laugh

Transported my newly reinforced group to the "farm." Warrior plunked The Mad One with an arrow and 5 seconds later he was lying in the dirt pushing up daisies, or in the case of THIS farm, pushing up dust bunnies.

Veni, Vidi, Vici!

If you finally do manage to find this npc be careful. He has a point blank ae silence. I didn't realize that going into the fight and he actually killed one of my characters. Wouldn't be so bad if i was doing this for loot but i am doing it for the hunter achievement so when my character died and then he died i didn't get credit. Given how long it took to spawn him i would have been much better off letting him kill my group and then coming back and killing him. Dropped Lucid Remnant of Truth and Taskmaster's Flail. So now in order to get the achievement i will need to continue to camp deranged beggars. EDIT: 4 "a deranged beggar" are up at a time. I downed the 4 of them 10 times. On the 11th set he spawned again. This time i made damn sure to be ready for his silence. Dropped Beggar's Scarf this time.

Luckily i never had to deal with him again after that. You should edit the npc info and put it in that spot.

from what i have learned......anything outside doesnt spawn for shayt. i spent 16hours at farm and only got larrow the demented to spawn 4 times and 3 of those was the last 2 hours i was there.

i dont understand why the spawns are so few but i petitioned it and i still havent gotten a reply from soe as to why or if something is wrong...looks like another camp for named spawn SOE the Missing.

total i have been camping 1 week with the help of others and no luck.. larrow the demented hasnt popped ALLDAY long today.
spawn time stinks
