51 Ranger here. I just zoned into TT zone for the first time today. Nobody else was in the zone. I checked track and saw Trakanasaurus Rex on track. Didn't know who he was but was hoping he was the one who dropped the trak tooth I had seen for sale many times. I tracked him down and ensnared him, I had on wolf form. He is VERY fast. He came at me about as fast snared as most mobs run when not snared. Luckily the first ensnare spell stuck and I never let it fall off. I used panic animal and was weilding a wurmslayer + green jade axe and FBSS (I know, hurts the stamina, but it's worth the damage it does till I get epics). Took almost all my mana to take him to almost dead. He resisted a TON, I'm guessing he was lvl 50, 1 level below me. Panic animal also wore off each time quickly, even when it stuck. When he was almost dead (and I was also almost dead), I ran a little too far and I lost aggro. Took me about 30 seconds to track him down again. He was almost full life all over again, and this only after 30 seconds! So don't lose aggro on him, he will regen FAST FAST FAST if you do. He does not regen if you don't lose aggro. I spent the next 20 minutes letting him chase me as I ran ahead a little bit and medded, stood up, ran ahead, medded, etc. Takes forever to do that, but I didn't want the people who had now entered the zone and were asking me about him to take him, so I kept aggro. Eventually I build my life and mana back full again (I had on an iksar regen CP which I had bought for 9k long ago), while keeping ensnare up. This time I didn't get too far from him and I slowly wore him down again till he died. He dropped the 10/20 tooth, and I was pretty happy about it to say the least. So YES, panic animal works on him as it does on every dino I have met on Kunark and Velious. Also, one other very important thing to note, which made it possible for me to solo him: You can hit him, and other large mobs from a HUGE distance away after hitting him with panic animal. You can even hit him from far enough away, that when panic animal breaks, he won't be in range to hit you back and you can get away without being hit. It took me a lot of practice to get the range down and I would take 250+ damage every time I screwed it up from his double attacks. So use the range to your advantage. It will say that "your target is too far away, get closer", in between your swings, but you will swing at him from a long ways away nonetheless. Try it out, it works on giants in Velious and any other big mobs that I've encountered. He is on the froglok hunter's cycle I was told by many people in the zone after I killed him, btw. I didn't think to get a screenshot of him, will do that next time and post it here. Looks like all the other "dinos", but bigger.

Just an FYI, just because it says monster above doesn't mean this is not an animal. There are many mobs innacurately listed. The Tigeraptors in WL are animals, I snare/panic them all the time so the question is valid.

I was running through TT yesterday on the way to a guild thing to get some keys to sebby. I was with a 39 druid, when we ran into this guy. With my 49h pet i was able to solo him rather easy. (The druid tried to stick one DD and one dot on him and it resisted so she sat down and memmed a evac just in case.) Unfortunatly all he dropped was some coins and a mage research component, but no tooth. (I was a bit dissapointed, my rogue would love one.)
Oh, and i have seen them for sale on Cazic server and they go for about 2-4k there. With the amount of Velious stuff out there the price seems to be dropping for everything.

Anyway, he T-Rex was not that bad for me.

#Anonymous, Posted: May 28 2001 at 2:14 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ROFL, a lvl 60 rogue can solo a lvl 53 mob i've seen it done. If they can't then they are a pitiful excuse of a rogue. I know many rogues who can solo lvl 53 mobs that are 59 even

ROFL ok.

#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 08 2001 at 7:59 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Lvl 60 rogues might be able to solo greens well, but rogues are not meant to take damage, I mean come on my ranger can take more than rogues and he cant even straight melee a low blue, i have to kite everything unless im grouped, the only way i can see a lvl 60 rogue soloing a blue is if he gets an intimidate off very early in the fight and then lands an assassinate
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 04 2001 at 9:54 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Rogues CAN solo well, and to the person who said get a necro: no one said rogues were the best soloers, so why bother posting at all if you dont play a rogue? Most people are lazy =D Thats why rogues may seem like crappy soloers!
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 26 2001 at 10:32 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Rogues suck as soloers. Get a clue and get yourself a necro. The only thing rogue is really useful for is lockpick, sense and disarm traps.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 27 2001 at 6:02 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Pick Locks can be a big skill for rogues, but unless you hunt in Charasis, Sebilis, and VS prep room, you won't use that skill a whole lot. Sense traps is pretty useless, but there are a few occasions where it is useful.

I was in TT (Trakanon's Teeth) with 2 groups one was full group, the one I was in only had 5(counting me) in it me being the only tank in my group - others were druid, mag, ench and wiz I think. One of the rangers from the other group pulled this fellow and we all jumped him there was a ton of casting and mass damage being done by the melee class types. To be honest he was very kewl looking and did have tons of HP but was dropped pretty fast. lvls of the ppl in the groups were pretty wide to. High 30's to low 40's. I was 42 at the time. All in all not a bad day of hunting. All got parts for Seb keys and no one died the entire time.

Be well and travel in safty.

It would technically be possible for solo Lvl 60 Rogue to solo this guy if he is actually 49 however ya would die alot and the sucessfull solo would be sheer LUCK...Think about it you'll realize what i'm saying

Trak tooth is worth under 10k. I couldn't sell one at 9k, eventaully had to take 5k and a SCH because I was sick on waiting around in EC
What spawn table??
# Nov 12 2000 at 4:21 PM Rating: Default
If anyone has any idea of which spawn table he is on please answer that question. I've been hunting Foragers forever, am now believing it's on the Hunter Table (but just a guess). Please comment if anyone knows anything!
RE: What spawn table??
# Dec 04 2000 at 9:16 PM Rating: Default
He IS on the hunter table, fer sher. The hunter table also has a couple of other nasties (Ffroak I think is on this one, as is Doom), so it's a hard one to go after.
Tooth doesn't always drop
# Nov 10 2000 at 12:38 PM Rating: Default
Unfortunately, unlike most of the drops off of rare mobs in this zone, the tooth doesn't drop 100% of the time. Very frustrating after spending many days without every seeing the T-Rex, finally getting him, and finding him empty except for a few coins.

he is uncampable alone, i watched a lvl 59 druid run to zone twice trying to kill him cause he just happen to come across him. His hp regen is unbelievable, dot's won't hardly work and he has alot of hps

53/54 druid can solo him easily.
Snare, root, Winged Death, Breath of Ro, Drifting Death/Drones of doom(es vams)...repeat as necessary...little easier at 54 with Form of the Howler for better mana regen.

I just killed it(solo necro)
Killing him wasn't that hard but real problem was pulling him.
He out runs j/boots.
So just be careful if you are pulling him.

A lvl 50 rogue can't solo a lvl 50 mobs just so ya know it.....max lvl mob a lvl 60 rogue can solo is around 40, and only melee types.
RE: this tooth kicks i reall need one
# Jul 04 2001 at 5:59 PM Rating: Default
do you realize the dmg a lvl 60 rogue can do, i mean come on. ok lets assume the average 60 rogue has his epic which they prob do, ok so right there theyll be doing crap loads of dmg just from that and i belive that it has a haste effect on the dagger SO theyll be doing crap loads of dmg ten time faster then they were and add in the backstabs NOT TO MENTION the fact that they get DOUBLE backstabe i mean come on in 30 seconds they could prob do 2k dmg atleast and with good resistance im sure they could easily do caster types too.
so think what you say before you say it
RE: this tooth kicks i reall need one
# Jul 09 2001 at 5:00 AM Rating: Default
if you are soloing it odds are you aren't getting any backstabs in unless you are using instill doubt but as fast as this thing runs and the places it can run you into trouble the chances of you using instill are slim. so you should also think about what you say before you say it although i agree with you on the fact that at lvl 60 you should easily be able to solo this thing with the gear you should have by then.

Sells for about 30k if you can find a buyer. Very desireable rogue item.
RE: Dat toot
# Oct 09 2000 at 12:36 AM Rating: Default
30k is exaggerating, its worth 10k'ish
RE: Dat toot
# Dec 24 2000 at 11:06 PM Rating: Default
I traded a Trak Tooth for eboots, FBSS, and a swarmcaller, 30k is a lot, it will probably come down in the next few months, but I doubt it will go below 20k pp

Current price in EC on Bristlebane is 8-12K. Price is still dropping due to the new SoV items.
