Cleared the island of all birds and went AFK for a conference call... invis/FD in a hut. Came back and he was up! Non-roaming, standing in the topmost spawn point on the mountain (non-grassy area).

LOL WTF???

Every description about easy kills seems to be posted of 50+ characters. The bird is supposed to be around 30, is that a correct estimation?

I dont give a rats@$$ about anyone claiming something to be an easy kill when you are 23 levels above the mob.

What i and many wants to know is if its possible to kill him when you are around 30. Not if some managaged to kill him at 60.

Just my 2 cp

Just wanted to add that I agree with you completely. I am generally sick of hearing 'war stories' anyway, unless they include useful information like, spawn place, spawn rate, special attacks, special defenses, and situational considerations. Hearing some 15 year-old brag about how his 60 Necro successfully soloed so-and-so 30ish mob is just pathetic. And its ALWAYS mages, druids, and necros talking about soloing this-or-that. Well, DUH. These classes were seemingly designed from the ground up to be solo specialists. So you bragging about it Mr. Mage/Druid/Necro isn't the least impressive.
Try soloing an untwinked Ranger up through 49 levels like I did and then you'll have some bragging rights.

He always drops the spear as far as I've seen. He's really not very tough, Gull is a much tougher kill. The spear is nice for the range slot until you get either the cash or the level to go after your Slime Coated Harpoon. As for getting him to spawn, just park your pet on top of the mountain, aggro a bunch of birds, run them to your pet, then rinse, wash, repeat until Soarin spawns.

Well, I spent two days on the island in OOT to get him to spawn. The first day I spent about 3 hours running around and soloing the birds. The random birds are no trouble at all... the worst hit I took was 29 points... normally hit for 1-5 and 80% of the time they miss. It would take me about 30 minutes to clear off the whole island (approximately 15 birds). Gull Skytalon was spawned when I got there and aggroed me immediately. I was low on mana, didn't really need to kill him anyway, so I just let him follow me across the ocean (I levitated... he swam) until something jumped him and killed him. He is one tenacious bird - I ran him all over OOT and he never gave up till he got killed by something.

But no Soarin Brightfeather.... *sigh*

SOOO, second day, I had about an hour and a half available. Popped in... Gull was back and I decided to kill him this time. Pet and I dropped him like a rock (pet attacked, I dropped 3 DoTs on him - about 1100hp my guess). Instead of ******** around killing the birds myself (I wanted to work up defense and piercing skills the day before) I used the pet. I parked the pet on top of the mountain and then ran around and aggroed a half dozen birds at a time. I brought them all up to the pet and we stood there and killed them all. After 6 birds, the pet and I were both at 80% health, and I had FM (chloro running on both of us). After killing the entire island 3-4 times, Soarin popped on the beach by the gnome. I noticed that this is where Gull had popped, as well. Not saying this is the ONLY place... but that's where they were for me.

When Soarin popped, I had already accumulated my normal train of about 6 birds. I realized it was him too late and he aggroed. I carried my wonderful line of birds up the mountain to my pet and immediately had the pet attack Soarin rather than letting him choose a target. I backed away and rooted and dotted him (VoS and Plague) and then went to beating on the birds. The pet had Soarin and one other bird - I had the other 5. I had killed one bird when Soarin's root broke. I rerooted after he hit me once (for around 50) and backed away. He killed my pet with the help of the other bird and then I dropped him with a 260 point nuke. My guess is he has about 900hps. The other birds all got a DoT and I collected my spear and logged for the afternoon.

Camped him a few weeks ago for my lv 10 shaman :) i was using my lv 46 chanter (Abanine Moonrider - The Rathe ), and basicly summonsed a pet buffed him and ran around casting tash on everything to pull and he killed em .. after about 30 mins Gull spawned. Killed him and shouted to se if there was a cleric that needed him, there wasnt so he decayed. about 10 mins later soarin spawned and rooted nuked him to death.. easy fight. but while waiting on a friend about 5 mins later he spawned again... so he is not a timed spawn

Easy camp I guess if you have 3 hours to kill and are a 44th Shaman like myself. All I did was I created a pet, sowed and quicked it and then just ran around and hit any aviaks I saw. They would run around after me in a huge pack and my pet would pull them off one at a time as I collected others. Peice-o-cake. He spawned right in front of the "diving board" for me but can spawn in other locations.
Nerfed!

Has this NPC been nerfed?? I am bound on Aviak Island and I always gate back to find Gull and no Soarin ever! Too bad. I used to be always looking for Gull and find Soarin.

This guy drops the Ebon War Spear, I have heard conflicting reports that you must clear the island to get him to spawn, I have also heard that he just shares the spawn table, and pops in every 2-3 hours or so, but I've never camped him so I personally dont know. What I do know is that the spear is a nice weapon and slides nicley into your ranged slot when you have out grown it (has WIS and Mana +'s) Anyways GL!

I camped this guy, or should say slughtered his fellow birdies for 5 hours. I will tell you what I learned from this. YOU do have to clear the island with the exception of the birds up in the stands. You just keep on killing them and at some point he will spawn. Does spawn on the top of the mountain or down close to the Ocean. Not hard to miss by the way. He did hit for around 60pts sometimes double attack. My pet and I took him pretty quick tho. I was a 44 shammy at the time. I did this just 3 weeks ago and had a blast running around killing birdies and did have some friends help me to as to keep up with the spawn rate. Well there you have it.

How many birds are on the island? Also do you think that a level 53 war can handle the birds?

Thanks
