Confirm from the header post Gullerback spawns near the giant's fort. Also, Kill other gorilla and apes and skellies one at a time with my ranger. Spawn took about an hour or so. I thought it was going to take forever.

180, 1050 is a good place to meet Gullerback in Burning Woods if you don't feel like wandering around.

PH for Gullerback?

Ran through here the other day, and noticed that none of the named was on track. Not even good Ole' Gullerback, who btw was always messing up my giant camp in my younger days.

Then I got to remembering the Fabled mobs were suppose to be back, but doesn't seem to be for GB, spent several hours running around and never did find any named on track, except that skellie guy over in the meteor crater...

What gives? They get rid of the named in this zone after making it a HZ a while back or do they all have PH's now?

I have a faily well equipped 55 paladin on FV that i have kept in BW soloing AA's when I feel like logging him. I keep him there because he does well with the undead and its good aa xp at 55. Ive encountered Gullerback several times and hes never been a real problem to take down with 5k hps in items and self buffs and self heals. Out of about 7 times killing him all ive ever gotten was the tattered mantle and a random item. Heres the interesting part, I recently started a solo career as a Necromancer. Hes decenlty equiped I guess, average item has about 80 mana for a total of a little over 3600 at lvl 54. I thought surely I could take out gullerback considering between my dots and the pets damage he has way more dps than the Paladin. I didnt recall that he was very resistant. I could not dot, slow, fear or life tap him. Im glad I dropped all the plat on pet toys, my little level 41 skeleton tanked him and killed him all by his self. Well done Gibarer I hit 55 on that kill.

found him today at the building with skellies & gorillas. 51 shaman couldn't take him down. resisted almost everything I had. he regens quickly, but I made it out before I died.

I have soloed Gullerback with a lvl 55 paladin. Takes a lot of self heals. I have never successfully landed a spell on him, the closest I ever got was 24 points of a 243 point proc from a Fabled Ghoulbane, and that only happened once.

I have been in the zone with other characters and a hunting party, no spell caster ever got anything to stick. Moral of the story: Don't hunt this mob with a caster. Gullerback may not be magic immune, but he is extremely magic resistant. Melee is the only way to go here.

Killed him twice in morning about 30 minutes apart.
He was right outside building with undead gorillas and skellies just below crater on westside.

Resisted all my undead spells and stuns,had to do it the old fashion way.Doesnt have that many HP.

Dropped the mantle both times nothing else.

Was out in BW all afternoon with a tracker. Where he once used to be a common spawn he is now no longer up. Has anyone seen Gullerback recently since the anniversary event?

Finally saw Azdalin twice in a row the next day then Gullerback. Not sure what the non named ph is for this cycle.

I killed him yesterday solo with a L55 Paladin had my enchanter out with me but he resisted all the L51 ench spells I had up . So the Paladan kitted him on a giant drum healing myself at the end of each run. He resist almost every thing I had up . I had to use my lay of hand to save mana healing up one time .I could hit him with expel the dead but it was hitting for a low value.When the monkey died (could have been from old age ) I only had 20 % health left zero manna . It was a spur of the moment attack no planning sure someone could come out a lot better than what I did .He did drop the tattered shoulder item .

Taking Down Gullerback

When I was a 57 mage I solo'd this guy twice ( same technique both times ).

Sent Dyzil's Deafening Decoy to attack and at same time cast Wrath of the Elements. As soon as I recovered I cast Elemental Maelstrom. Then heal pet, as he will have been knocked down some by then. If I had time before WoE wore off I would also throw a Scars of Sigil ( sometimes resisted, sometimes not, but it is a fast cast and low mana burner.

From that point I just renewed WoE and EM ( the two mage dots ) as they expired and kept pet healed. Occasional Scars if I had time and pet was okay.

Took him out both times and the issue was never in doubt. However, I did quit fighting him unless he jumped me because both times I killed him it took me down to about a bubble and a half of mana and my pet was usually pretty low on hp as well so it made for too long a med. for what I got.

Just my two cents worth but I feel most Mage's rely too much on their DD spells ( and yes, we have some good ones ) and not enough on our DoT's. I use DoT's, Pet, and Scars of Sigil exclusively when fighting ( see the technique used on Gullerback ) and I can take out some very high level mobs that way. I know Scars is not a big hitter but is a VERY fast cast and low mana burner so supplements the DoT's and Pet quite well in most cases.

Thanks, and good hunting all

Just soloed him last night. New to the zone and had no idea this guy would resist snare and root! Fourtunately, I was hunting in wolf form and he was no match for my speed. Dotted him with Breath of Ro, Drifting Death, and Drones of Doom. Then I just ran him around - rinse/repeat. Make sure you are out of range when you start casting, and keep clicking until the spell fires. Even so, he was able to catch up to me a few times, and whacked me pretty good. Was down to 30% health when he finally dropped. Took 5 or 6 full iterations of dots. Only dropped the mantle. Cheapskate...

100% Magic Resistant?

We're camping those named wurms in the zone for the mage epic, when we spotted this guy... Being a 58 mage and a 58 chanter he conned dk. blue and we figured it would be cake...

Resisted everything we threw at it...

Hits for around 150hp... Ate through our HP buffer shields and then went to town on the pets... Had to run this sucker to the zone out to break aggro and survive...

Nasty... Guess you need a melee group for this sucker...

think he is resistant to almost all fire based spells ...

As a beastlord I have soloed him many a times slow/cripple wont hold but cold based spells will.

I had no idea this guy couldn't be snared or rooted just popped into him today. Luckily i was buffed with SoE and had Scoriage up. I just ran out of his range, and pushed the scoriage button until i was in cast range. Then i repeated this 12-13 times until he was down. Had 238 wis with kei. Got the Tattered Mantle :| and almost 1/3 blue bub out of it. But it was fun. Scoriage and soe to run with does the trick with this guy easy.

I was on my 41 Bard today and was grouped in SF, trying to get some shards for his epic. When the group finally breaks up due to not really being high enough I decided to go back to DL and kite a bit.

Well as I ran through BW I see this guy on track and asked if anyone was beating him and they said no. He conned a big red to me but being a bard what does that matter?? Anyways I started kiting with just my flame chant since he resisted the disease one everytime i tried. Doing 48hps a tic I was only doing 1/2 a percent of dmg per tic but eventually did it and got the crappy shoulder thing. Good fun though

I am lvl 54 pally with decent gear (weapon a MDS ->28 dmg/30 del, RBB +w/ Valor of Marr ->56% haste, 1100+ AC ~3k hps, and ~1000 Atk, I see this dude and says to meself, how much can I do to it solo before I have to run (~20% life)? Well, lucky me, didnt pick the one that summons, but tagged it anyway, I did get it to ~60% health and was forced to flee, as expected. A good cleric friend of mine and I revisited him and was able to defeat him many times (takes a bit and many CH's later). The nife buf does proc on it, had 11 procs in one fight where only 2 hit for total 45 dmg, on another about 160 dmg out of 8 procs, so eventually some spells will land if lucky. Leason learned, have a good healer, build agro so healer lives when CH lands, and if by yerself, give it healthy respectful salute and keep yer distance. Other then that, BW will keep yer intrests, only other tough undead is occasional Tatterback and the gtr war bones (those are fun to solo). I use the Instill (before lvl 54 was root) and DW breastplate and about 18 stacks of jaspers (feul's the DW breastplate) and make almost 2 yellows (that was at 53) in xp and enough loot to barely recoup my costs in jaspers. The right gear and zone, ye can do good! Cheers!
soloing Gullerback

As a 56 bard I soloed him on several occasions. Snare type song does not stick with any consistency so i dont weave it in. Charmed wurms and Giants to make it go faster. Easy fight and conned dark blue every time. Only loot that has dropped is that fricin' tattered mantel..UGH!!!!

Gullerback got pwned tonight...

Im a lvl 40 enchanter of stromm server and I soloed him. I charmed and hasted a wyrm (50% haste) and took him down to two bub.. charm broke so i ran out of aggro range. Charmed a second wyrm and sent it in taking him down to one bub... charm broke yet another time and i ran out of aggro range.. Found a yellow giant charmed it and sent it in for the final kill... got the mantle.. Not bad for a lvl 40 after hearing of groups of mid 40s dying to this guy.
