Not even close to practical to farm this guy for the lariat. I thought it would be great to get a packfull of them for my pet but he has no steady spawn time/location that I could nail down.

Got one off of him today.
Somewhere heckling Fleven about updating quest info lol...
Well, that was fun, briefly

Took him down last night ( Yellow to me as L13 Rng with L14 Pally) fairly easily as you'd expect. For some reason he decided to wail on me only while the (obviously polite) Paladin's Taunts went unheard. I survived with about a bub and a half of health and got some good group XP for it.

All he dropped was the whip which was only slightly better than the short sword I started with at L1.

I had much better spoils hunting Elite Guards and Guardsmen.

What's the point of this Mob again?

put my neck on the line and soloed commander as a no twink dru 14, with less than a bub of health i am victorious, and my spoils. you guessed it the leather whip, looked like a good item when he was hitting me for 30 with it, but it is worse than a rusty scimitar off a decaying skeleton

I'm a 16 Monk, and with a successful Mend or a tad bit o' help from just about ANY class (really, all I need are about 2 or 3 extra hits), I can tank the commander. So his levels are probably on point.

What is annoying, though, is he has yet to drop anything other than the lame earring and the WHIP; no lariat.

This is starting to make me LOATHE VI. I finally get to a level where I can start to look for some items, and they nerf them. I know the MOMENT I get Luclin up, they'll have nerfed the stuff I can handle in there too.

Also, since I'm in a whiny/complaining mood today ... anyone else out there really NOT like the XP changes? I was well on my way to dinging 17 in the Warrens (where the loot's actually worth my TIME for once) and then the XP thing gets tweaked, and bam, I can't kill anything in there for XP without TRAINING a bunch of mobs. So I get stuck half a level away from Feign Death in a zone where I NEED Feign Death to hunt. Ugh.

Ah well, enough griping and moaning. Back to the old hunt and rest method of soloing.

Down with VI!

BAH! They've replaced the gnoll hide lariat with a leather whip! Do you have any idea how lame it is to kill something(thinking it will drop a goodie), use LoH because he hits so hard and fast, and then loot to see a leather whip?! Whats wrong with you VI? How twisted are you? I have killed the splitpaw commander 4 times, each time thinking it was an error..you make me sick VI..so sick.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 01 2001 at 9:58 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The stuns from this proc have red particle effects. The whip procs at lvl 50.
bards. race that bugs
# Sep 12 2001 at 1:38 AM Rating: Decent
After a fun filled day of watching warriors try and take down treants then i walk in and nuke them in about three shots i had to head to bb to get my faction back up. Went straight for green room and this "bard" cries "green room camped" so i head on over and kill some gnolls then who do i see running from this guy? Little bardy boy. Well i hate bards cause out of all the classes they seem to cry the most. My experience with them anyway. I sat there and watched him cry for help and just when he as about to die i sent pet in for the kill. Pet took him out on his own and little bard boy got zip exp. Oh on my way out i hit the two elites that spawned in the room then gated. LOL i get a tell about 10 minutes later from crybaby. My point is don't camp anything your butt can't take

LOL I totally agree. You don't need to camp something you can't take

How do you get to BlackBurrow? I am a lvl 27 ranger and I want the whip for my 26 warrior just for the stun...I have no idea how to get there/I can barely find qeynos!

Please help,

The gnoll hide lariat's been nerfed, I guess. I haven't seen it drop off of him in quite a while. But, it could just be that the drop has been cut back.
Does this still drop???
# Jul 28 2001 at 10:54 AM Rating: Decent
I have also heard this no longer drops in Black Burrow. Any truth to this rumor? inquiring minds what to know....
I got a different Loot
# Jul 22 2001 at 9:39 PM Rating: Decent
I have killed him once with a large group, rolled the dice and got 101. SO that meant I got the Rusty Spiked Shoulder Pads, off of the Splitpaw Commander. I also have a Splitpaw Mask and Leather Tunic Thing. Ralae
No longer drops
# Jun 18 2001 at 8:36 PM Rating: Default
The gnoll hide lariat no longer seems to drop from him. I was hunting BB as usual and killed several; they dropped leather whips, and did not stun during combat.
RE: No longer drops
# Jul 19 2001 at 11:33 AM Rating: Default
ya, i just killed him 3 times, and each time just a leather whip... too bad

Bard were'nt ment to solo. Thats why he was so hard. At lvl 14 with a lvl 13 pet, I had a pretty easy time. DoT's and DD's will kill pretty quickly.

The stun is not comming from the whip but rather his bash skill and a spell that causes stun. im not sure what class he is but he has a minor heal spell plus the stun spell. dont lisen to the con becuses i got one that coned blue to me and it nearly killed me aparently it quite commaly underestemated.

Sorry, but you've been misinformed. The stun does indeed come from the Gnoll Hide Lariat, its stats are DAM 3, AC 3, DELAY 20 EFFECT: STUN. He also has a bash skill which can stun the target as well. This makes him very dangerous and a serious undercon - like most named critters in EQ.
Spawn Point
# Feb 12 2001 at 10:57 AM Rating: Default
Where in the BackBurrow does he spawn?
RE: Spawn Point
# Feb 20 2001 at 1:28 PM Rating: Default
He spawned to the right (as you face the Commander Room) of the regular commander, in the little side cul-de-sac there, the one time our group found him. We pulled the plain commander, and this guy came too. He doesn't appear to spawn all that often, though.
# Feb 01 2001 at 7:16 AM Rating: Default
I looted the Gnoll Hide Lariat as well as an Onyx earring with +2 agi from him.
# Jan 06 2001 at 4:41 PM Rating: Default
If the gnoll hide lariat doesnt proc until lvl 25
how is it that this guy is constantly hitting for stun when he caps out at 15?

Dude that guy like so cheats you stunned me like 15 time during the battle but of course he lost and i looted him I like the lariat although I cant use the magic on it but what was also cool was that I got a malchiate!
RE: Cheater
# Nov 21 2000 at 5:57 PM Rating: Default
You were stunned so many times because of the effect on the whip... also the funny thing is all mobs will stun you multiple times, for instance the halflings in Nektiklious Forest, I wtched as an Ogre warrior level 25 or so cleaned house on them he was stunned at least 30 times but a creature that comes up to his knees, and you cant stun a creature by hitting it normally, you have to bash it or use a spell!

MONSTERS WILL ALWAYS STUN NO MATTER WHAT LEVEL YOU ARE! I was stunned by a fire beetle with my 14 monk! go figure
RE: Cheater
# Mar 17 2001 at 11:21 PM Rating: Default
Ummm fire beetles can't stun. Mobs based on warriors can bash at level 6 and up and that's the only skill that I have by stunned by that was used by a mob. Spells can stun too but for a non-caster mob to stun it useally must be level 6 or up.

The only way the ogre could have gotten stunned at all was if one of the halflings managed to get behind him. I have no clue how that could happen seeing as how at his level they would be green and he could take one at a time, but then again I never tried the halflings there.
RE: Cheater
# Mar 13 2001 at 7:35 AM Rating: Default
Fire beetles cant stun, only certain characters with the spell or an effect on weapon or natural effect (ie ogre troll barb) can stun. If fire beetles could stun no one would make it past level 3 in this game.
