As a 37 beast wandering through the cave killing mostly greens and the odd light blue, I was not prepared for this red con fellow.

I was killing warriors for my cultural armor quest. I lasted about five steps down the hallway and was then compost for the goblins to feast on.

At least I could summon my corpse to the guild lobby... LoIO not a corpse run I would have wanted to do back in the day.

I was just wondering here.... how is it that we can't equip anything at all if it isn't allowed for our class/race/religion or whatever, when it is plain to see that NON of the NPC's or Mobs have to follow the same rule?

Take this guy. He's a Shaman with a pet, carrying a staff that says it works for Warriors only. I'd love to hear the explanation for WHY these can use these things and yet we can't.

Seems to me this is just plain bad coding or thinking on verant's part. If you want ppl to not complain all the time, STOP letting the MOBs bend the rules while we are ruled under the iron thumb. If you are going to apply something to us, then please, restrict the mobs to the same rules!

Originally was going to look for rare mobs like the Sarnak Courier. etc. I am at that level now I want to see more of the game. 49th seson druid. I got curios about tunnels on map.

I kill a few of the guys here and there. I turn on Tracking, I see he is the only blue, with a pet. I notice a lot of them have a fair amount of hitpoints for their level. After A few I decide its a bad idea to use all my mana killing lows, then bump into this guy.

So, I put camo up at 60% mana and find him. I walk, sit, walk, sit. He makes rounds near the center of tunnels buffing guys.

I get a moment away I recast SoW and Stack Chloroplast with my SLN... I decide to pull at about 75% mana. I root him, pet comes in, root pet. Angle myself to DOT both. Drifting death, Calcification. I also use the Elder Spirit arms. He was not too tough, but I can see him being problematic. I knew he would root, so long as I kept him and his pet rooted as well. nuked me for 220 or so. Dotted me a few. I got an add, warlord. Lord Gorelik actually used a lot of casts to heal his pet. Pet dropped. He Eventually dropped. A lot of HP. looted staff, gated out before warlord dropped. Was very LOM.

just so everyone knows the staff is/was visible. He was not too touch. Quite a bit didt stick... good luck all.

My Favorite EQ Memory

I haven't played EQ in about a year. Once I got my ogre SK to level 20, I couldn't shake the feeling of same ol', same ol'.

Anyway, right before quitting, I teamed up with four others who were about my level to clear out the goblin caves. (For an ogre, I had an unnatural fondness for small spaces. I loved Guk too.) We had a moderately challenging time dealing with the blue cons until we found I nice open spot (an alcove or something) for pulling. I was the tank, so off I wandered.

Bad idea, as I'm a really crappy player--I quickly got lost and wandered for about 20 minutes, spotting red cons around corners everywhere. I somehow made it back to the party, but in the process I'd lost my pet. "Skellllllly! Here, Skelly! C'mere, boy!" I yelled as I summoned him to return to me, figuring that he could home in on my signal even in a maze.

Bad idea #2: Skelly did come to me but brought the Big Bad with him. Worse, the bastid reached THRU THE FRIGGIN' WALL and killed the cleric with one stroke. None of us had seen what happened, as the cleric was standing behind us in the alcove--we just noticed that her health bubs had suddenly vanished, turn to look at her, and see her corpse.

Of course, a second later, my SK turns back to the hallway and barely has time to see this goblin gorilla dressed like the Chiquita Banana dancer before I'm instantly dead. Lucky for the rest of the party that I'd died first, because the Big Bad can't walk thru dead ogres as easily as thru walls--they all lived to tell the tale, while I had to die to do so.

After a few hours, I got my corpse back and then decided that I'd had it with EQ--many, many hours of sleep lost with nothing to show for it. I still miss my SK, but I'll someday revive him in an RPG.

I was running through the tunnel with my 51 shaman with pet up and see a goblin charging me down the hall. I figure "a soothsayer" at first glance and paid it no mind. Suddenly my pet all but stops attacking before i relize what was going on this goblin turns to me and hits me with every dot he's got. Having only had up ebolt i let it fly and charged into melee. (yes a shaman can fight!) He conned dark blue so i figure "smack him around a bit and back off" didnt exactly turn out that way. This guy loves to root. He rooted me 4 times durin that fight. I went in at 3/4 power and ended up oom after taking blows from the staff as well as his dots and pet. The little sucker rooted me and ran off with my pet right behind him, killed him on the entire other side of the tunnel system. Finally found him and took my reward.

Took him down tonight with 30m to spare. med till fom, cast wolform, spikecoat, sln, my 5 resists and str. med again to fom, cast regen, ds, and invis and went in. Snare, Ice, starfire, starfire starfire... dead. He hit me once melee for 77, I resisted ALL his spells and his stoping to cast gave me plenty of time to cast starfire. Buffed, all my resists were like 70-90. Never saw his pet but his pet dies with 1 DD vs summonded practically. Waited till he was in the back of the mine to snare so there werent any adds. Got my newbie warior a 2hb weap =)

went to tunels to kill gobs tonight, and as i was running amuck killing everything in sight i caught this guy in my view, so i snared him adn moved in to melee (i am 51 SK ). This guy starts out double hitting me for 93, which might have been ok if i had been a little more prepared, but i wasnt , so i fear his butt and run after him. Now i hit in the 130's average and i hit with around 40 dly all told, still only took this guy to half before i was at half with two adds and a pet while he continued to run.... So i went to a safe room and FDed.
but this guy is tough cookie as far aas i am concerned. Oh and one other thing, it is an important note that he casted scourge on me, that is a pretty nasty DoT... anyway after running away i began bandage after being FDed a while and forgot that wanderrers dont return to any bind so he never lost aggro, shouldve /q but i didnt and he got me :P so i end up in cab sucking the soul binder and wonderring if i might put a little more thought into my policy of attacking blues in close quaters :P

saw him sitting at one of those tables eating some cake, so i walked up and said. Hail lord gorelik might i have that nifty stick you have there in those green hands. he laughed and replyed, you must pry it from my warm dead hands. i say No Prob! and began smashin his head in. about half fight, he pauses and says, Wait! my cake! i laughed, grabbed his cake crammed it down his throat. he begins to choke uncontrolably, i figure what the hell and chop his head off. he layed there twitchin abit as i slowly snapped his fingers back and removed his stick. walking happily outta his stink hole of a home. i see a cpl of his buddys, aka warlords blockin my exit. i roar at them GET outta my way or the same fate that befell your master shall fall upon you! the shock and disbeleif is their goblin green eyes made me wonder why gorelik was so easy.

I was working with a pretty good group and I, being a Ranger, was the puller. I was level 21, now 20 when I found him. I snuck around a courner right into his big nasty goblin arms. He and a hord of other goblins killed me before I knew what was going on, then ran all throught the mines(picking up friends) looking for the rest of my group.
Got a staff

Saw this guy up with the staff last night and figured I'd take a chance, I'm a 44 mage. I summoned and buffed up an earth pet send it in, it killed off it's pet fairly quickly but the fight took quite awhile on the lord, he has so much HP. I ended up chain casting 3-4 pets and nuking with shock of swords twice for 600+ dmg each. I'm just lucky the spells hit for full because by the time I killed him I was down to 40% HP and my pet was down to 50% HP while I was OOM. Tough fight but it was worth it, got a free mithril staff for my lvl 31 warrior. Just too bad his 2HB is at 0, heh.

I was a 46 Mage when I kiled him. Easy. The lord did not even kill my water pet. I hit him with about 1900 points of damage (multiple casts), DS on the pet also. Got 1 add and the gob's pet, but my pet killed them before I could cast. I thought it was pretty easy, but duh, I was higher than him. My 20 Warrior alt now has the same staff with the same 2HB skill =/.

Tried to take him down as a 45 SK. I had him down maybe one health bub before i had to feign at only a few dozen HPs left. He starts slow, but once his pet jumps in, its all downhill from there...

When i was still around lv 25ish i was hunting at the gobbie caves here in a pretty good group. I (being the uber puller that i am) was single pulling the warlords that pop just near the entrance, our group was getting insane xp. Then things went horribly wrong, i went in a little deeper to pull one of the gobs right at the end of the first corridor cause the ones at the ent were taking way too long to spawn and all i saw was "Lord Gorelik hits you for 95 damage" I screamed LORD INC to my group hoping they would run to safety, but they stayed and tried to save my sorry trollish ***** Big mistake. This guy started hitting 110s over and over and then the coup de gras he let loose on the 3 tanks with a 2 wave 154 damage poison AoE spell. AH THE PAIN! Our necro FDed and got wasted by the goddamn AoE so after all was said and done the only thing that we got was LOADING... PLEASE WAIT

I dropped this guy with my 47 shammy, EAZY EAZY EAZY! Had all my resist stuff up and my normal hunting stat buffs, ect. went in the mines invis lookin for em, when i found him just hit em with a nice chubby dispell to drop his buffs out and then have em chase you out of the mine, with my resist buffs up all his stuff skipped off me and i malaized, rooted, and quad dotted his butt, then dropped in a chubby nuke and he was runnin like a nancy. Didnt even use my pet. VERY easy kill at 47 compared to some other, similar lvl mobs.

Just killed this guy yesterday for a nice midlevel 2hb weapon for my sexy warrior. This guy is cake. I'm a level 54 Druid so apparently thats what kept the goblins from assisting their precious Lord - a goblin stood right near him and even tho I rooted and dotted the Lord he didn't come to help. His pet got stuck somewhere so it took it a minute to come help, missed most of the time. One round of Breath of Ro and Winged Death killed this Lord. I tracked him down and rooted as soon as I could, didn't really plan my attack on him as he's pretty fast and patrols around the caverns. Pretty easy if you use Druid root-snare-dot method. The lord was blue to me - must have been somewhere in the low 40s.

Well 49th level druid so this guy should be easy. Ran in invis, got far enough away so I could root twice if it did not stick. His pet was luckily in a side chamber and could not get at me. Rooted him, slapped on Drifting death and 4 starfires later (612 damage I think it was, just went LD so cant check log), dead gobby, he only cast on me three times, and for verrry minimal damage. Never even encountered the pet. The staff was visible so I guess that is a way to tell if he has it. Anyway, was nerve wracking being that far in (in and to the right). I see no reason why a well organized group couldn't take him out. Be well, have fun, and no I dont "Got SoW" :)

I specifically tracked him down today and found him a fairly easy quarry. He circles around a fairly random path within the mines, so its difficult to choose a spot with which to prepare.

I sent in my pet initially, making sure both the Lord and his pet aggroed on it. I then cast Ignite Blood, Splurt and Bond of Death. As my pet soaked the damage I used Pact of Shadow to keep him alive.

I found it a good idea to use Screaming Terror on the pet and this seemed to reduce the damage my pet was taking to a controllable level. The only problem I encountered was that the Lord's drowsey spell significantly slows your pet's attack so I was relieved to have initially triple dotted, the Lord lasted less than two minutes with this approach.

Once he was dead, the pet posed no problems. He seems relatively easy, there are common mobs in the Dreadlands who are significantly harder than this guy.

My 47 pally nearly got wacked by him today, friggen adds kept me from Helm Healing to 100% and wasted 70M of mana keeping root up...*sigh*. Killed him in the end when a 27 rogue guildee helped, hehe, you'd be suprized how useful he was, got a 107BS that cancelled his last Gheal, that if he got it off woulda finished me. Now if i went at him FoM and FoH i shoulda been able to solo him, got the Mith Staff. Hope I can grab some $ for it.

I went to group in gob mines when I was lvl 21. I didn't know he was in there until peoples were sayin 'Watch out in case Lord so-and-so spawns!' So needless to say, I was severely freaked when he spawned, with his puppy dog, right in front of us. The group necro ran off with the Lord trailin him, after he had killed 2 group members and reduced the remaining three (me, and 2 besides necro) to less than a bub of health. The Cleric, who was behind me whilest we all 3 hauled *** the opposite direction, got aggroed by the little puppy-dog. She started screamin, and surprisingly enough, with about 30hp left to both our names, we BEAT THE SHE-IT OUT OF THAT DUMB DOG! Then, on the way to the FM zoneline, we got aggroed by 4 diff mobs...which killed another group member...The cleric and I high-tailed it after the 4th death...and, guess who was waiting for us @ the zoneline? none other than DEEP, the ****** fish lady who hides in the lake. That took the cleric out, along with everyone else @ the zoneline, but ME. To this day I cant figure out how I lived thro that massacre....creepy...*shudders*
everyone else in group got de-leveled btw. :(

As a 53 shaman, this guy was no problem (that's to be expected of course). I cast plague, 2ebolts, and 1 blast of poison. He died before plague and the 2nd ebolt ran out, meaning he was dead in under 2min. If they both had run out, the damage would be close to 3.5k HP. So I'm thinking he has closer to 2.5k HP.
# Oct 26 2001 at 1:14 AM Rating: Default

its listed as a common drop, so far ive killed him 5 times and no staff yet
