Levels are off
# Aug 05 2004 at 11:08 AM Rating: Decent
These guys vary in level. Monday Evening I passed by with my (then) level 18 Monk. Conned one and it was Red. (Which indicates they can go at least as high as 21)

Last night passing through, I conned one and it was Dark Blue to my (now) level 19 Monk. Which puts a lower limit of at least 18.
2 at a time

lately the exploreres in LOIO have only been spawning 2 at a time =\ makes camping them slightly more annoying then before, oh well, lots of dead goblins, lots of dead sarnaks, soon to be a friend to the iksar... i hope

It should be noted that handing in explorer knives to Trooper Vaurk gives the same faction hits as the bone chip quest in Field of Bone; But by my best estimation, one knife gives about the same faction as 100 bone chips.
Level range incorrect

These were green (might cause a problem) to me as a 27 Necro. They were not so green, however, that I could single pull them. Train to ZONE!

If these guys are Barbs why the hell would I get bad Emerald Warrior and Firiona Vie faction by killing them? I'm a WE Ranger considering raising my Legion of Cab faction to dubious by killing iksar bandits and then handing in the knives to Vaurk, but I see that I'd get bad faction with my brethren if I did...what the hell? I'd expect to get bad Barb faction, not WE..

They are from Firiona Vie, an Elven outpost..and I don't think they are all barbs.
29... sure it is.

Bah, level 29... I was in LOIO with my 18 Necro, going ta Cabilis. These barb explorers came out of some building on the way to Cab, 4 of them.... all yellow. Forgot about FD (DOH!) so after running around the lake once they caught me (I was a tad lost...)
Right or Wrong?

way wrong. They con green @ 39 ( I was passing through the area). If they were around 29 they'd be light blue or dark blue.

They say that the explores are a lvl 29 monster.
Lead explorer
# Jun 09 2002 at 12:01 AM Rating: Default
I camped the ruin for about one hour and a half. Only two lead explorers spawned at all. And no locket dropped from them. Only some regular pieces of chain armor (ranging for 6 to 12 in AC). Also, trooper Vaurk seems to be in a meditative mood...but his med spot his high above ground on the platform over the pillars...
Petitioned and guide told me that it'd be fixed...Trooper despawned and 15 mins later...wasn'there..

Posting this just to let you know.

I have Camped the Locket that the lead explorer has. Has 6ac 3wis 3int 3wis weighs .1 and is also a compass in one. It is lore and i have at least sold 4 of these things.the bad part about camping the lead explorer is that he has a tendancy of laing hands when he is low on health.Just bugs the hell outta me.Also killing explorers and turning knives in can make any Dark race be able to evenually get in to Cabilis. May take Tie but worth it. Also the locket has its own unique look to it and looks weird if some inspects ya

The levels is wrong these guys con green to my 30 wizard and drk blue to my 23 iksar sk and they also apear to all be of the high elf race didnt see any casters when me and my pet killed 4 of them before the last 3 took me down to 10 hp.

perhaps the level is wrong because you didn't actually encounter the barbarian explorers?

I was heading to Cabilis from DL the other day and got distracted chattin' with a friend and wound up at the empty? tower in LOIO and was suprised to see about a dozen very pale looking "Explorers" exploring my scaley tail without asking first! I proceeded to play "Whack a Mole" with them til the "Lead Explorer" LOH himself and REALLY PISSED ME OFF...He saw my scowl and puked up his locket:

Neck Slot AC 6 +3WIS +3INT +3AGI All/All

I thanked him heartily and waited til he respawned. When he noticed me hangin out he squeaked and squeezed out another locket for my Monk to log in and loot! What a gentleman.

They drop hunting knives used for an iksar quest. Give them to Trooper Vaurk for some faction, coin and exp

One of these was walking out from cab zone in illomen today. Conned blue to my 23 monk. Went down pretty easy couln't see any faction messages because of the text bug. Droped a lore no drop knife. (named an explorers survial knife or something to that effect) Anyone else seen this or know what its for?
Ill Omen

a group of these buggers killed me last night in The Lake of Ill Omen. they came running out of a tower that i know to be empty (i'd camped there for weeks looking for a sarnak crypt raider). thing is, i wasn't all that close to the tower.
See Invis

Also, they have the tendency to be able to see through invis, so if you are a hostile race, avoid the pilgrims and explorers. (found out from personal experience unfortunately)
# Jul 25 2000 at 12:06 AM Rating: Decent
Seem to have the same exact standing as Pilgrims, and are all apprahensive to me as a barb shaman in Firional, seem some with mage pets. I'm guessing killing them wont make you popular with the local townfolk.
