a Kunark rhino  


Uploaded July 24th, 2007

The Kunark rhinos are found only in the Overthere. They are found all over the zone though, and can vary widely in level. To the eastern side, they can be as low as level 16, and will slowly go up in level to about level 35.

They are good hunting, but the level 35 version will hit for 80+ Damage, and outrun Journeyman's Boots.

Broad range of level.

These things get much tougher the higher level you get. My level 34 Shaman has been soloing since 15. I haven't been killed once. Even though I can kill the rhinos with Root/DOT, I normally leave them alone for slower prey.

i am lvl 16 and i can take on a red (a low red) with not too much trouble as a necro. i have all my current spells for the most part. just use the darkness then the leech as i run for the book, pet right be hind me. then when i am close i cast heart flutter and let the pet have at it and cast focus death on my pet. then cast heat blood and put Banshee Aura on for a damage sheild and run up in there swining and feverishly pounding the life draw spell button. : P oh yes, oh yes big boy goes down. but a little note... as i hit lvl 17 just barely i got a little cocky, pet was not at full health and i was one less blue from being full mana. i saw another rhino it was red attacked with clinging darkness which it resisted, and came a charging and used pet for about 7 secs as i tried to cast it again which failed and then tried to gate as pet died and.. well so did i. wasn't "too" far from the book, so just be careful. and a red sabertooth tigress will have your butt for dinner. also should be noted i had KIE on when i was wooping butt. see you in the game.

I thought that KEI could only be cast on levels 46 and higher?

At the time of the original post there was no level restriction on KEI, it since then has been nerfed.
Kunark or kunark (upper case K or lower case k)

If you check the spelling of this rhino I noticed that the Upper Case (K) Kunark I can take as a 25 Mage but a lower case (k) kunark I cannot take and cons red to me.
Take note

is there a difference between animals and monsters?
RE: jus wondrin
# Mar 31 2002 at 3:21 AM Rating: Decent

there's a major difference between the 2, at least for Druids and Rangers who have a series of very handy Animal only Fear spells (as well as Shamen's Animal Charm series). Soloing evens and yellows is a piece of cake with them :)

I just travelled to Overthere and I was wandering around when I saw a Rhino. I figured.. big, slow I have SOW on and if it is too tough I will run. I casted Darkness and it took hold and then heat blood, he was on top of me quick and pounding my pet. I casted fear and then leech both took effect. I followed and then had to fear two other times because he kept coming back. He would almost catch me with Darkness on and my having SoW on me. I was shocked. Anyways, I finally killed the sucker. Got my butt handed to me by a prickly succulent though. Thank heavens for the stone golem.
15th level Necro.

P.S. There has to be an easier place to hunt.

Has any 38 to 40th level ranger tried to solo them? I guess you would try root, swarm, arrows,
fear animal, and careless lightning before you go hand-to-hand.

I hope a ranger of that level has tried to solo one of the 35th level rinos.

Cash Cow

The rhinos are a great way to earn some quick cash. On occasion I've seen them drop upwards of 2pp and change, but typically the drops are in the neighborhood of about 8g-1pp. On top of that, they drop rhino horns that can be sold in the outpost for 1pp and change. The lower level rhinos con easy green to me and can be killed with no sweat, but I still farm the heck out of them just for the cash. It may seem that 1pp isn't much, but it adds up very quickly when fights last all of 12 seconds and that rhinos are a VERY easy find in the OT. For characters in their lower 20s they are a decent source of exp when hunted near the northern coast (and are guaranteed death if a lowbie ventures too far south), but be warned that even at low levels they can hit kinda hard and run quite fast. Enjoy!

Interesting discussion this. About half the people here seem to think that these Rhinos are the easiest things in the world to kill, only one step up from Giant Spiders (well, not exactly). The other half say that they get their behinds kicked at levels 10 or 15 higher than some of the people that kill the Rhinos with ease.

So one wonder if the lvl 35s are lousy players or the lvl 20s are super twinked.

I guess I'll find out tomorrow as I am heading there then to see if a medium twinked lvl 30 druid can take out these Rhinos.

These are my main cash crop. Killing the rhinos usually give crap for cash, but you can collect the horns they somtimes drop. Sell these horns in town for a better price. I usuall get 2pp 8sp98cp per horn. With all the kills there an selling excess items. I mak about 20-30 pp per night. Very nice
Two different ones

There's actually two different kinds of rhinos in OT. A Kunark rhino - easy A kunark rhino(Kunark not capitalized) - harder.

this beast is a warrior type. Hit very hard and have a good load of hps. They have poor resist on all and easy to solo for a necro or a druid. A mage could do as well at 35+. Don't mind soloing them when conned yellow ! They will max hit each time ( 80 hit ). And you'll don't have enough mana or enough time to take him down before your pet or root break. Enjoy :)

( they are good xps too but loot is a joke )
Have you all lost your marbles!!!

I see messages about people pondering who can solo these things.... Well on the necro front, yeah they can solo them.. but these would make fantastic pets! Just make sure its low blue or green charm it feral spirit it thorns it send it into battle! If they are really as tough as you all say they are they should demolish oppenents with ease. And when the charm breaks make sure to have wolf form run around with it some and either fear or snare or charm again. Since they wont agro we druids it'll work pretty well!
Melee range

Do these guys have a melee range as similar to giants? I'm thinkin of using my Adamantite Bo Stick to combat these beasts...Thanks

Everyone seems to be mentioning the Rhino Hoof being used in a shaman quest. I can't find this quest anywhere. How is the quest done?

RE: Rhino Hoof Quest
# Jul 29 2001 at 9:24 PM Rating: Decent
The quest you are looking for is the Scaled Mystic Armor quest for boots. It is given out once you are 30th or higher. Don't know if you can turn in the items earlier or not as I have not tried and am now 30th anyway. :)

Has anyone gotten one of these, and do you know what they are for? My rogue got one last week, and I've been trying to see what its for, since its a no drop item, that usually means for some quest type thing.
thanks for the help.

A ;litle on the lower levels.
# Oct 10 2000 at 11:54 AM Rating: Default
Well I'm hunting solo in OT at the time with my 21 SK and i must say I never take these on unless I'm at full health and mana.

They con either risky or dangerous blue to me the rikys are OK but the ones that con dangerous can cause problems.

The can double hit for 40 and they do not tend to flee but rather duke it out untill the end.
So con first cast later :)

So the low end ones aren't too bad... that Rhino horn is worth the effort at that early age...
RE: A ;litle on the lower levels.
# Dec 05 2000 at 7:09 AM Rating: Decent
Agreed. Always be at full capacity before taking these on. Have every hit point and mana point filled.

Also, these run faster than a normal character's running speed and (I believe) slower than SoW speed. So be sure to not do long pulls, unless you like a horn scratching your back a lot.

My level 20 Warrior can always win a fight with a blue con'ing Kunark Rhino, but most fights are closer than I'd like them to be.

My 16th level necro took out a yellow one. Just darkness, send pet, fear, heart flutter, heat blood, leach, and reapply fear when necessary.
Noooo way! Easy Mofo's

These guys are soooo easy! 33 palaad in can solo some of the blue ones... I did, They hit slow and if ya have good ac they always miss, I just rooted/healed/tanked/
RE: Noooo way! Easy Mofo's
# Jul 21 2001 at 4:32 AM Rating: Default
Look at the level range, they go from 16-35. I am sure a 33 Pally could take on some of the low ones and think its easy. :) I am a 36 necro, been soloing them for a while (the high end ones by the gargoyle tunnel). I tend to avoid them if I can. There are much easier things about the same level that give just as good exp. I can take the yellow spiked succulants with 2 bubs of mana, or sarnak knights for 2 1/2. The Rhinos resist alot. Darkness gets resisted about 50%, and fear probably 30%. A couple of resist in a row and you can end up getting in real trouble in a hurry. The guys do hit for 100+ and if you cant get darkness on, they will be on top of you in a hurry. I use Dark/boil/pet/fear/vos and I might have to drop another fear when it wears off.

One other thing, if you are using the gargoyles as guards, be aware, even they cant put these down in a hurry. I have made it to the tunnel and still been killed because the gargoyles cant put them down for 15 seconds while the thing is still beating on you. For necros if things arent going well (3 dark resists in a row) Wave bye to your pet and feign.

They must have been lowww blues...

They are tough to tank for there level.

33 paly soloing? I don't believe it. These guys do double attacks for 100+ damage. I'm a 34 Shaman, I have to kite him for like 12 min. (casting Scourge 3 times and throwing in some DD's). They also resist root most of the time. You need to root him with Enstill.

Only a Druid/Necro can truly solo this bad boy.

Bah, I've been hunting in the Overthere for 5 levels, and they've never hit me for more then 90.
RE: Noooo way! Easy Mofo's
# Oct 11 2000 at 8:55 AM Rating: Default
I am a level 22 SK - I fear kite them, solo east of the outpost.

I use aout 1/2 my mana, but rarely lose more than a bubble of health.

The horns sell for close to 3pp in the outpost, and EXP is great. I have gone from level 20-22 in just a few days soloing these guys.
