I thnk that there's some kind of bug in the system but this is just too funny! I just got to West Karana from Cabilis and decided to work on my Queynos Faction. While camping the bandits I noticed that the male farmers and bandits 1) Don't have animation when they attack you and 2) DIE STANDING UP!! I swear to Cazic-Thule! It's funny as all the hells to see this mob standing there wit "A Bandit's Corpse" above it's head. It can be a bit creepy though....

These all con blue or green to my lvl 9 Druid, so I'm estimating they're between lvs 6-8. Easy way for a 7-9 Druid to get exp. and a break from the orcs. There are only three of them, so Harmony, Snare, and beat them down one at a time, nuking as necessary. They don't hit as hard as orcs either. The only time I had a problem was when one of them resisted snare. And for some reason, even the green ones gave exp. The loot is not great, a few sp and the occasional weapon or backpack, but it is worth it to escape the orc trains for awhile.

Loot, and Which to kill
# Aug 02 2001 at 12:44 PM Rating: Excellent
As of late I decided that I was having a cash floe problem so I decided to go into Western Karana and kill bandits. LOTS OF THEM.
I found a pattern in what loot they drop, and its different for each "Type" of Karana Bandit. This may not be completely accurate but it should be close. Please forgive any inaccuracies, as Server differences may change this. Please do not flame this post as being wrong without proof. I have ALOT of experience killing these.
Brigand: (Male barbarian In Chain or Banded) bandit sash, Small change, Occasional Bronze & Rusty weapons, Occasional Words for Research.
Bandit (Male barbarian in Leather) Fighter Class: Never drops Sashes, Rusty Weapons, Small change.
Bandit: (Female Barbarian in Leather) Fighter class(Never been backstabbed) Never Drops Sashes, Small change, rusty weapons
Bandit: (Female Human in Leather): Fighter or Rogue class. Can Drop Sashes, Rusty and occasionally bronze weapons, Small change, Human blood.
Bandit (Male Human) Fighter or monk? Can Drop Sashes, rusty and bronze weapons, small change.
Bandit: (Male Half Elf) Druid I believe. Always has a Damage Shield up. (Ow) Rusty weapons, SMALL change and the occasional rusty weapon. No sashes, No bronze.
Bandit (Female Half Elf) Druid I believe. Always has A Damage Shield (Again Ow) No sashes, Occasional Splintering Club, Small change.

Some things are completely random, I have found Small sacks, wrist pouches, and some provisions and alchohol on them.
Hope this helps, the Karana Bandits are a MOB with a lot of variation. Choose your tactics carefully or avoid them altogether unless you have a group (Below level 16 or 17) The Magic using bandits will cast damage shields on all thier comrades within range. this makes things very difficult if several of them attack you at once. At this Posting Im a lvl 22 barabrian just farming them for fun and cash. The only Mob I still get exp from is the Brigand.

Lfay Bandit factions
# Jul 01 2001 at 5:29 PM Rating: Default
What are the Lfay Bandit factions(Nybrights and regular bandits)? Just curious 'cause it would seem strange if they ran on the same factions as Karana bandits, being so far from the plains.

The ever freaky lil' Gnome :P

YES there are I fought one at the entrance to the ruins when you go across FOB. Check I saw and killed one. They say time to die "your name". Of course their human.

There are bandits in Field Of Bone. they are found right above the Iksar bandit hideout. there are two of them and it seems one out of every 4 drop sashes.. which we Iksar just destroy, I used to hit them on way back from city before I went to Kurns. Why they spawn there I have no idea.

Small bandit camp
# Jun 19 2001 at 9:22 PM Rating: Decent
For anyone out there lvl 11 to 14, there is a place in West Karana where only two bandits spawn. This is along the path to Highhold Pass. Great xp, decent loot, and sashes drop on one out of every 5. Careful of the bandits running from the nearby camp, they'll give you a good beating if your in the middle of a fight. Also, the casters can take out a lvl 15 druid so careful. The lions and lioness are also to be considered. One last thing, this area is in the direct path of The Swarm Queen and her army so be on the look out.

# Aug 02 2001 at 5:53 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, they don't spawn there, they run over from the nearby river camp. After a while, they run on up the mountain (I think) and more run over from the camp to replace them.

It's a good place to pick off a couple as long as you're paying close attention to the ones coming over from the camp.

# Sep 18 2001 at 9:21 AM Rating: Decent
In truth, they do spawn there, I hunted from lvl 10 to 14 with a fellow druid. I also bring all my alts that's near Qeynos to hunt here. Yes, bandits from the nearby camp do come over to this spot and "converse" with the other bandits. I've hunted these bandits while another group was keeping the camp and any runners cleared.

Stupid bandits (great opener huh)! I'm walking along in West Karana and I stumble upon the bandit farm (now I was only lev 6 then so I couldn't take them) and I was attacked. I couldn't figure out what happened. Then all of a sudden I was jumped (that's about the best way to describe it) and being backstabbed for 54 hp is not fun when you only have 170. I ran for the guard tower and didn't make it.As you have probably figured out I died and had to go hunt for my body. Stupid bandits!
# Jun 16 2001 at 2:40 PM Rating: Decent
The guards won't attack them anyway. The only thing to do if u can't take them is to run for the zone.

Bandit Levels in WK
# May 22 2001 at 11:48 AM Rating: Decent
Bandits are normally 9-12 but casters fight much higher. I had one hit my Shaman 3 times with lighting for 75 pts /pop. On the other hand 2 spirit strikes and they are all but dead.

The one exception which everyone seems to have left out is that Brigands also spawn with bandits. Brigands are at around 5 levels higher than normal bandits. They look like bandits but don't con like them at all if you are level 12.
true deal
# May 20 2001 at 8:56 PM Rating: Default
the bandits are 9-12. the one who ghot exp at 19 must have killed a dervish cutthroat. and the guy who killed one at lvl 5 must have killed a highwaymen. also to keep from gang banging just use a lul or harmony type spell. abdnits are PERFECT for a druid lvl 8-13 since you can harmony some of them without it aggroing them, then pull 1. it works EXCELLENTLY in leser faydark. they are set up as tag teams. 2 wotrk together so u harmony the right ones and u can pull 1 at a time and do a low level style of kite/melee combo. also good cash for a your lvl. they can drop bronze items and some jewelry which can sell for 3-12 plat.!
Level Range
# May 03 2001 at 8:50 PM Rating: Decent
At level 19 my shaman gained exp from killing one of these, so obviously 12 isn't their maximum lvl.

I've Fought these guys a b4, and they r 100% not level 9 - 12, they r level 5 - 9, on 10 they were either blue or green, so .. have fun :)

They like to gang-bang, don't they?
# Apr 25 2001 at 12:53 PM Rating: Default
How do you pull one of these SOB's at a time? I singed one with a minor spell and all three came after me (level 8 magician.) One kept my pet busy and the other two bashed me, but good. Took an hour to find my body, too, cause I ran the wrong way.
RE: They like to gang-bang, don't they?
# May 15 2001 at 5:33 AM Rating: Default
If you are speaking of the Bandit camp in Greater Faydark then you need to team up with an enchanter. I started taken them at level 8. Lull or mez the two lowest cons. Tashan the highest to pull and kick it's butt. Then rest a bit between pulls, rinse and repeat. Soon you will have them spawning one at a time and time between to med to for full mana. Easy exp once you have the spawn broke. I went all the way to level 11 that is when the exp started getting bad.

And a couple more thoughts
# Jul 03 2001 at 4:03 PM Rating: Default
You could root one, but then that would still leave you with two.
Druids get a great spell called harmony which will reduce their agro range to almost zero so you can pull one without the rest coming.

You could also have a high level character single pull for you. This helps both people because for the lower person he gets single pulls, for the higher person doing the pulls, he gets faction for the fight too. Plus it's just nice to help out lowbies, we were all there at one time.

Great Fun

Can't pass up the opportunity to destroy a human life. I kill without regard for factin or loot on these guys it's pure entertainment. After looking at spiders then scorpions then sclalebones then burynai then giants and sarnaks its nice to see an itty bitty human ripe for killin lol.

Actually, they do! If you head toward the WW zone, you'll find one or two of them in the cleft of a hill, near the beach. I always make it a point to smack 'em when I'm passing through, for the faction. Every little bit helps us leezards!

I always figured this spawn was a bug, but oh well.

You Karana Bandits have ruined your own lands, you'll not ruin mine!

Great way to fix faction after killing bards
# Mar 14 2001 at 8:50 PM Rating: Default
If you made the mistake of killing bards to get thru lower 20s, bandits are a grat way to fix you Qeynos guard faction. They drop with 1 cast of inferno shock with lvl 30 wiz. Collect the sashes and turn them in for even more faction fixing. I went from ready to attack to apprehensive in about 1 hour of killing bandits.

No if I could only find the time to fix Antonican Bard faction all would be good!

What do you care how much the antonican bards like you.
once you get high enough to kill them then you want them to kos you just for an excuse to bash there damn fool heads in.

The casters still attack me at lvl17. They're quite tough for con greens, and I still can't take on two casters at a time. The non casters though are meat for the Beast. There's a quest for belts in South Qeynos if you didn't already know.
