No set location that I know of. I sat at the bug monument at the center of the zone ( 1600 x 300) and killed anything that walked by for an hour. then had to run afk for 4 hours. When I got back from afk, track looked different by only 1 mob : Petrifin and he was beating on me. mostly hit for 12, but rarely got a big shot in for 60. I assume I spawned it by killing those pathers at the monument. I was trying for Mortificator

Had him spawn in the southeasternmost section of Rathe in the area with a lot of basilisks. I believe his PHs are the roamers that roam from this valley up to the far North (where Hill Giants are).

I can only tell you he is tough....I ran into him at two different locations with two different Toons........I do not care if I ever see him again, but as much time as I spend there with each new Toon if mine, I am sure it is ineveitable....just hope that if and when you run across him, that you are in good health with lots of mana.....and if worse comes to worse....J-Boots or Sow is good to have was not written to help...just to warn those that have not faced the wrath of this mighty little creature!

This guy almost killed my 35 druid. Hits pretty hard and stuns for a long time. Within a few seconds i was down to 28% HP and with no mana on, saw no other option to run. Little persistent guy though, but i reached zone line without getting stunned again.

Some higher level guy killed him and he also dropped the Gloves of Rallos Zek (hence the subject of this message). I believe these gloves are used in mage research, but don't flame me if I'm wrong here.

i was just trying to pull some hgs when whack 'You are stunned!' and then i turn and i see a little basilisk, and i'm like you don't stand a chance.then, after a few seconds of not being unstunned, and getting hit by this little guy, i con him.yellow.then i say to my group 'help please'.by the time they get there, i have two bubbles of hp left, and i'm stunned.still.well, thank goodness for healers.he would probably be a royal pain in the patoot to solo as a tank.well, the bracer isn't too bad.and no one saw that i looted it, so i guess i'll have to decide what to do with it.anyone know a price range on it?

I was with a 35 CLE friend of mine hunting RMs when someone shouts "Who the heck is this Petrifin guy?" I had not a clue in hell when they were talking about until I get stunned and see the eyes of a named basalisk staring at me (I am a 42 DRU in Wolf Form at them time, lol).

If you can root and dot this guy is not hard (so long as you stay out of his cast range). He/it was red to the 35 CLE and dark blue to me (42 DRU). Hope this helps... BTW: When his root broke and he stood there we was tough to get a hit on, so tanks beware soloing :o)

He was still dark blue to my 50 Druid.

Resisted all but one of the stuns and nearly killed me with that one stun due to the fact that he hits fairly hard.
Nasty MOB

I was killing hg's minding my own business and he jumped on me. I ran. My husbands 45 lvl druid stepped in and died lol. He then pops back, roots it from a distance, dot's it and kills it. Nice bracer, got it in the bazaar for 200pp. We will see what happens.

This guy suprised me when I was playing with my enchanter. He started stunning me back to back and hitting me. Luckily I was charm killing a hill giant with a hill giant so when he was done my giant pet came over and took him out easy. Giants are immune to stuns so it was the perfect against him.

I ran across Petrifin by accident, and soloed him tonight. Only problem I had is that he casts Stone Breath which froze me in place for about 15 seconds or so. (MR is 54) I darked and feared him, then cast Scourge and Asystole and let my pet take care of business. Petrifin took about 3 bubbles of health from my pet counting my pet's lifetap spell. Dropped the Granite Bracer. I have been in Rathe on and off for three weeks, and this is the first I have seen of him. Not too many people seem to know this named basilisk exists, anyone know where is spawn point is or is it random?

I was hunting In Rathe with my lvl 44 Wiz when I heard a shout go up 'Named Balsik at Med rock' I dashed over there just in time to see a lvl 52 drood choke on his last breath, dunno if he picked up aggro when he was low HP and mana? then a shaman took over from him and died in like 15secs again dunno if he joined in the fight in a poor state, as Petrifin starts walking off I click on him to see his con, DB to me and see he's also low HP, well I kinda felt a little guilty the other 2 guys dying but hey! <shrugs> you can bet if I'd joined in I would've been flammed for KSing. so one nuke later I get the exp and the Bracer, some guys get all the luck <sigh>.

From the posts this guy looks like one tough ****...could a 47 monk with decent gear solo him? i got haste....

Hi, pointers:
Petrifin is double hitting for 97 damage, and hits with like 25-30 delay... His stunns can sorta be resisted if you got good magic resist (I had 54), he stunned me once, and thanks god only once. I was all alone and he started hitting me, OUCH! started kiting (as a bard, 3x chants twisting in Selo's Chorus once in a while and Amplification), he stunns for quite a while, I would say 6-8 secs... I didnt have a healer or anything and wasnt buffed so 6 secs getting hit for that hard is very dealy. Avoid him if you're alone... and IF you consider kiting, stay FAR FAR from him, at the range limit, you dont want him to cast a stunn in.

Anyways, I got Granite Bracer :-) Was pretty happy! HEHEHE!! Finally upgrading serpentine bracer.

Could a 39 mage, along with a 30 paladin kill the thing? thinking about earth pet, my own stunn spells, and LoH to whoever is getting beaten on.
now on my must kill list

Was standing at entrance to HG valley talking to a friend when i see a basilisk approaching, no big deal, they are all over. WRONG, this thing starts whupping up on me with melee hits in the 90's and stonebreath, plus a nasty stun. I start running for the zone at half health when i realized i hadn't taken him down a half bubble. Well i never made it, called the closest guildy cleric for a rez, and added one more to my must kill list. Now that i know what this beast drops, i will defenitely look for him when killing giants for cash.

What is the eye for i got it today after it killed me i got mad and logged one 51 oger war and had cleric healing and man that is one bad come my druid was 40 and took her right out and at 51 took 3 cp heals on the war and all i got was that stupid eye whats it for

Was in a HG group and puller decided to try this guy. He hits hard and fast and his stun lasts for a minute (it seemed like it anyway, maybe not that long). He took a liking to me and LoH was the only reason I survived. He drops a granite bracer which is very nice, but expect to roll for it in a group.
He killed me when i was kiting giants

I am a level 51 druid, and was quad kiting hill giants. I had them snared, and was backing up to get a little more room for my AE nuke. Then, i could not move. I was thinking, the lag was really bad today. The giants kept getting closer, i figured i could take one round of hits, then i would have to move. I kept trying to move but could not, and was killed. I was thinking of petitioning a GM about the lag, then i scrolled back and saw my messages. Either i backed into petrifin or he walked up behind me. Petrifin stunned me and hit me in the 90's as the giants approached. I came back, tracked him down, killed him, and got the bracer. I just snared, rooted, cast DOTs. He is easy to kill if you are not stunned. But if he stuns you, you may die because he hits in the 90s and the stun lasts a long time.

Does anyone know what his spawn rate is? Does he havea ph? etc.

# Jul 15 2001 at 1:22 PM Rating: Default

I've only seen him 3 times - the 1st time he beat the ^%$# outta me. That was L40 (druid) and 2 months ago. Last night I found him and whooped his **** but all he dropped was Eye of Petrifin (lore item) - he immediately spawned again and THIS time I ended up getting the Granite Bracer. Off to the auctions.............

# Jul 02 2001 at 9:27 AM Rating: Decent
I saw him once near the bug tower. He was already killing someone, and I was too low at the time to consider trying to help.
anyone know where he is or does he roam around?
