Sirran The Lunatic

A lot has been and can be said about Sirran, but here are the basic facts as confirmed by direct evidence.

He spawns on/near the corpse of a dead Boss mob in islands 1 through 7. (not 1.5, not 8, not 1a)
He de-spawns on a 20-23 minute schedule.
He is non-aggressive, in general.
He will assist any aggressive mob that attacks you.
Handing him the "Key Loot" from the island you are on will get you back the Key to the next island.
NOTE: Each Island's "Sirran the Lunatic" is different than the others. As a specific example, you can not hand the Key Loot from Island 6 to the Sirran the Lunatic spawned on Island 1!!! While he won't attack you for doing so he also will simply refuse to accept it. The only trade Sirran will accept is the Key Loot for the island on which you spawned him.
Hailing him is safe!
FALSE RUMOR SPEAKING TO SIRRAN will cause him to attack![Confirmed 5/28/2006]
RUMOR Hailing Sirran will re-set his de-spawn timer.
This is a "maybe". Confirmed (by me) that this does NOT work on a 5 minute re-hail interval on island 6. However, for the same island, have reports that it does work on a 45 second re-hail interval.

Sirran will have various conversations with you island by island. Because Sirran's conversations seem to flow together, I've put them all here, rather than on their individual islands.

However, before going through his non-aggressive text, let's see what Sirran has to say if he's ever irritated into attacking.
Any Island, if Sirran decides to attack:

Sirran the Lunatic says 'What?! Now you've done it! The bunnies are angry! ANGRY I TELL YOU!'

If you ever find Sirran saying these words, pray for mercy...

Island 1, after killing Thunder Spirit Princess:

You say, 'Hail, Sirran the Lunatic'
Sirran the Lunatic says 'Ehem! What? Oh, hello there! Sirran be my name. Yes? So, come to the Plane of Sky, have you? Killed all my fairies! Hah! So! Do you wish to know how to traverse this plane? Or should I just go away? I know much about this plane. You would do well to listen!'
You say, 'I wish to know how to traverse this plane'
Sirran the Lunatic says 'Ahah! Wise you are and tell you I will. Hrm? Don't have wings, do you? Fairies have swords! Fairies stole my lucky feet! Hand me them, one by one, and be in for a treat! Haha!'
(A variety of attempts were made to get him to say more, but with no luck)

Island 1, after turning in either of the Key Loots for a Key:

Sirran the Lunatic says 'These are the keys! Use them well! Hold them in your hand and touch them to the runed platforms! Guide you thy will! Hah! The last to go, must tell me so, or be in for a [hassle]! If there's a hassle, I will go!'
(Absolutely no combination of "hassle" did he respond to!)

Island 2, after killing Protector of Sky:

You say, 'Hail, Sirran the Lunatic'
Sirran the Lunatic says 'Ah! Come far you have! You are all crazy! I like it! Swords spin no more! Spin, spin. Unlucky they were! I thought them [vain]!'
(Absolutely no combination of "vain" did he respond to!)

Island 2, after turning in Broken Mirror for Key of Misfortune:

Sirran the Lunatic says 'You move fast, you crazy kids! Keep going! Prod you I will! Stuck here I have been! Oh! Let me know when you are [done] or this will be no fun! Haha!'
(Absolutely no combination of "done" did he respond to!)

Island 3, after killing Gorgalosk:

You say, 'Hail, Sirran the Lunatic'
Sirran the Lunatic says 'What! Die already! Come so far. Can't you see I am cold! Give me a cloak or something! Bah! You don't look the type to give anything! Be off with you, then!'
Sirran the Lunatic says 'Always want something for nothing? Oh yes, you gave me something! Here you go! Take this! Used one you have. [Teleport] away you will! Let me know, or no kill! Haha!'
(Absolutely no combination of "Teleport" did he respond to! Also note that I did not hand him anything, yet he still gave this 2nd line of text.)
[Best Guess: He wants me to turn in "Light Woolen Cloak (possibly it is "Fine Wool Cloak" or maybe "Light Woolen Mantle") or "Grey Damask Cloak", both rare drops from Gorgalosk]

Island 3, after turning in Animal Figurine for Key of Beasts:

Sirran the Lunatic says 'Always want something for nothing? Oh yes, you gave me something! Here you go! Take this! Used one you have. [Teleport] away you will! Let me know, or no kill! Haha!'
(Absolutely no combination of "Teleport" did he respond to!)

Island 4, after killing Keeper of Souls:

You say, 'Hail, Sirran the Lunatic'
Sirran the Lunatic says 'You again! Aren't you dead yet? Well, give me the token items you got, and move on you will. Maybe. Oh! Wait!! Rings go on fingers, yes they do! Gimme a ring and I'll help you!'
(Absolutely no combination of "ring" did he respond to!)
[Best Guess: He wants me to turn in "Silvery Ring", a rare drop from Keeper of Souls]

Island 4, after turning in Bird Whistle for Avian Key:

Sirran the Lunatic says 'What is this? Bah! Take that! And this! What was I thinking? I was thinking you had best let me know when you use those teleporters. Just say, [Icky Bicky Barket]. Aye, that is what I was thinking.'
(Absolutely no combination of "Icky Bicky Barket" did he respond to!)

Island 5, after killing The Spiroc Lord:

You say, 'Hail, Sirran the Lunatic'
Sirran the Lunatic says 'Children, run to the wall and give the deputies some miIk. Oh, I almost forgot. Give me your trinkets, or give me death!'
(Absolutely no combination of "trinkets" did he respond to!)
(See the Am I one with the wall? page for notes about what Sirran's words mean here.

Island 5, after turning in Noise Maker for Key of the Swarm:

Sirran the Lunatic says 'Phew! These are heavy. Well, not really. I'm sure I don't have to remind you to remind me when you are [leaving].'
(Absolutely no combination of "leaving" did he respond to!)


Island 6 is special. Sirran behaves in an even more radical fashion than usual, and of special note, dealing with him appropriately is required to get the Boss of Island 7 to spawn (which, obviously, then means that getting the key from 7 to 8 requires dealing with Sirran properly here on 6).

For a complete analysis of why you are to have the conversations (below), please see my "Am I one with the wall?" page.
Island 6, after killing Bazzt Zzzt:

You say, 'Hail, Sirran the Lunatic' (NO RESPONSE)
You say, 'citanuL eht narriS, liaH'
Reversed: "Hail, Sirran the Lunatic"
Sirran the Lunatic says 'Lortap llaw taerg eht fo lahsram, Narris lahsram ma I. Flesym ecudortni ot em wolla. Sgniteerg.'
Reversed: Greetings. Allow me to introduce myself. I am marshal Sirran, Marshal of the great wall patrol."
Translation: see my "Am I one with the wall?" page.
You say, '?llaw eht htiw eno I ma'
Reversed: "Am I one with the wall?"
Sirran the Lunatic says 'Kcul doog! Ouy rof ydaer si erips eht fo retsis eht won, sdik boj doog.'
Reversed, says: 'Good job kids, now the sister of the spire is ready for you. Good luck!'
Translation: By saying "?llaw eht htiw eno I ma" to Sirran, you have just spawned "Sister of the Spire" on Island 7.
(Check tracking...Sister of the Spire should be up now)

RUMOR: It is rumored that the phrase ".citanuL eht narriS ,liaH" is used to keep Sirran from de-spawning on this island, if someone is camping the Sister of the Spire on the next island.

I can confirm that it fails to work if you re-hail Sirran every 5 minutes.
However, I have a report that it succeeds on a 45 second schedule. I need to test this.

Island 6, after turning in Dull Dragon Scale for Key of the Scale:

Sirran the Lunatic says 'Dnib a ni era uoy ro esarhp eht yas dna yrruh!! Sruoy era syek eht dna romra em evig. Erom on gnits seixib eht ahahahahah!'
Reversed, says: 'Hahahahaha the bixies sting no more. Give me armor and the keys are yours. Hurry and say the phrase or you are in a bind!!'
Translation: Trade the Dull Dragon Scale for the Key of Scale and say the phrase ("?llaw eht htiw eno I ma") to spawn Sister of the Spire on Island #7 or you won't be getting keys to #8 up there

Island 7, after killing Sister of the Spire:

You say, 'Hail, Sirran the Lunatic'
Sirran the Lunatic says 'Nyah! The tears are welling up in my eyes! I am so proud. I think of you as if I were your father! Sniff. Sniff. Give me Veeshan, and I give you death.'

Island 7, after turning in Replica of the Wyrm Queen for Key of Veeshan:

Sirran the Lunatic says 'Not too much farther. I spit on thee knave! Ehem. Take these. Go on! Make your fortunes. No one cares about Narris. I mean Sirran. Hah! See if I care what you think! Oh, when did you say you were [leaving]?'
(Haven't followed up on this yet.)

Did you by chance ever try reversing the spelling of all of those previous bracketed words?

Also, Sirran killing people when you hail or say anything isn't a false rumor, so much as it is something that the Dev's eventually changed.

What is the spawn timer on this mob? Evidently that is only question I am not finding an answer for.

You would think that on a plane in which there is no levitation the turn-in mob would spawn on the ground and reachable. But no, they had to make my necro's epic next impossible so he spawned high in the air and every time she tried to give him the figurine on the second island, she got an emote saying she was too far away to trade with him. Now how in all of luclin are you supposed to get close enough to trade with him if he is in the sky and you are stuck on the ground???

We was doing Epic 1.0 for our shammy, we was on second isle killing stuff to get mirror to hand in and when protector went down, sirren spawned, didnt realise there was still one mob left up, 2 of our grp managed to hand in and get key, but when took shammy to hand in he attacked, our tank killed him, how long will we have to wait before we can go back and try again and has the Tank messed up her faction???

Entire group went to Sky and killed the Siren by mistake . It completely wiped our faction so we couldn't enter sky again. Good news is we petitioned and the GM's reversed the hit ...

Good luck people = )

For any of the flying mobs in sky, agro them and run. They will slowly float down to you as they chase you.
If you just move up and fight them, they will stay at the level they are.

Is Sirran on Beta Neutral faction? Or some other unlisted faction?

A guildmate healed somebody killing Sirran and must have taken some faction hit.
He does not know what the faction was, but now that we are getting keys for Sky
he also ports up and gets whacked by all the thunder spirits and the
Quest room NPCs. He is a paladin and will need to go to Sky for his
PAL Epic 1.0 hand-in.

Any clues on fixing faction here, or do we need to have the Server's GM
reset his Beta Neutral or whatever it is?

I'm in the same guild (/wave Temperance!) and had to go to Sky as part of the monk 1.0. Fortunately I wasn't in on the ill-fated raid that earned KOS status for not only the Pally but apparently at least two of our wizzies, who now can't port groups there without getting killed.

I saw a post elsewhere from someone who killed the Key Master and went from indifferent to apprehensive with "Inhabitants of Air", which includes the quest NPCs. I suspect it's the same for Sirran. Alas, I don't see any mention of how to repair that faction.

I was trying to think of ways for KOS people to get into the zone, but given that buffs are stripped on entry you can't even use tricks like casting invis during the port. The best I've thought of so far is to port in with a non-KOS cleric and get rezzed afterward, assuming there's any location on the first island far enough away from the NPCs. But if you're KOS to the NPC where you have to do the final turn-in, it gets messy. (Can that NPC be charmed?)

Stop talking about it please
# Jan 18 2006 at 2:46 PM Rating: Decent
Ok you want me to settle for yall you people who would win this dude or the sleeper? Lets see this guy IS killable cuz 2k damage is not very much when people have 14khp, The sleeper is INSANE and is almost impossible to kill(except for those guilds on PvP) and the sleeper has millions of hp. and hits for more than 2k.

But my real point is who cares? its NOT like they CAN fight each other. its impossible unless some GMs decide to do some event with them. You need to stop wondering about it because you will never know.

One last point...
The sleeper is not only the boss mob on Velious but pretty much the boss mob of the entire game. Its nearly impossible to kill it and it is the only mob in the game that people dont kill all the time.

Not really a boss mob of anything. He is a one-time event per server, then is never seen again. That's why people don't kill im all the time.

He wakes up, kills everyting in zone, and wanders across zones to Skyshrine killing everything around.

Only one real version of the sleeper had been killed. The 3 guild event on Rallos.
The chinese servers get a weaker version of him.

This isn't entirely true.

A: The Sleeper wasn't the boss of Velious. He was a lore addition meant to inspire the feeling that we aren't all-powerful yet.. which would effectively end the game for us. Sony forgot this in the release of PoPower, knocking the gods down to mortal level.

B: People love to debate this kind of thing. Hey, if its their bag, why not?
# Jan 15 2006 at 12:15 AM Rating: Decent
I killed Sirran mostly for kicks. So now I always port up to several kos mobs is there anyway to fix the faction or a way to get around it or am I completely screwed forever now?

#2 Kerafyrm is in a completly different class then this guy and all of the others you mentioned above. Eq emulators and sights have ALL rated Kerafyrm as lvl 75, and the "boss" mobs of Velious, Kerafyrm's AoE's from what I have heard are slowing/mana draining AoE's which makes him virtually impossible for any raid, a raid with no mana is a dead one. Also Kerafyrm has well over 1 million HP - and an insane regen rate, it took anuber guild using EXPLOITS meaning kerafyrm couldn't hit him, 6 hours to get him to 50% and then the GM's got mad a despawned kerafyrm.

coolmo you sir are wrong

Wudann and 2 other "uber guilds" on Rallos Zek server took down Kerafym. Yes Gms despawned him at 35% on the initial attempt becasue theyre was a zone bug with a quest npc that was causing Kerafym to not aggro anyone in particular. Gms did respawn kerafym for them and they infact did kill him usign a rather ingenious method. The very next night Kerafym was taken down on a chinese EQ server (not listed on the server listing) by another guild and some friends. I have screen shots of both if you care to look.
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 22 2005 at 4:02 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The "ingenious" method was only that of using clerics with epic to keep resurrecting all the melee. That's it. And a wizard got in a ManaBurn right at the end for a kill. Not a huge deal after so long if you ask me, the fact that they actually let these people waste all their times for such an endless kill is rediculous. The least they could have done was give them all an AA point or something but all they get is the "satisfaction" of killing a merchant basically. The only difference is the name and model happens to be that of some character in the EQ storyline. Was kind of sad on the muti server channels hearing a few of them rationalize their countless wasted hours into a legendary kill that was "the reward". But hopefully these are the type people who have moved onto WoW...

back in the days this guy was in fact the hardest mob in the game. unkillable infact. First guild to kil him was Afterlife, and that was.. just to kill him, he quads for 2054 and is unslowable. nuff said. He wont attack you at all unless you actually go thru the script with him. Or he spawns and you pull a mob near him.

Note that he does NOT attack when you go through the text with him. The one and only way Sirran attacks is if you attack him or you spawn him on an island with an aggro mob still alive.

If you want to get picky.
Plane of Sky used to be called Plane of Air but was changed to Sky when PoP was released so that the four elemental planes Fire, Earth, Water and Air were correct.

No, it was always called Plane of Sky, however it did (and still does) have the name of "airplane" (haha) when you do a /who all on someone in the zone. Plane of Air is referred to as "poair" as all are all the planes in PoP.

So, some guildies were bored and killed this guy.

He's really not that tough by todays standards. Lots of mobs hit a lot harder and faster and are killed many times a week.

Anyway, the flipside is, it makes you KOS throughout PoSky.

Yup, port up, buffless, barely a group up there and you'll get faeries beating on you.

And corpse runs would be so much fun too :p

But the f*cked up thing about it is he didnt drop sh*t.

6500k HP = 6,500,000 HPs. He definately meant 6500hp.
