First time ever seeing this mob in BB after leveling countless characters through the zone. Killed and got the shoulder pads and a turquoise.

The area map you got is for a quest who's reward is "Club of Gnoll Bashing". You need to get all four of the loots off of the Gnoll Courtier.

Hope this helps!

That would be a neat trick for a level 9 to walk into the green room and kill Mannan AND the 3 elite guards that occupy the room with him. I'm level 19 monk and can just about clear the room with about 10% health left afterwards.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

Gilsan met Mr Mannan of The Sabertooth for the first time today at 9PM Sunday the 15 Feb 3185. Mr Mannan was accompanied by 3 of his Elite friends. They were hanging around the Commanders Office with Mr Mannan standing were normally the gnoll commander stands. He looked blue to Gilsan and his 3 friends were a lighter shade but also blue, Gilsan being well into his 19th season thought he would introduce himself and cheer them up...actually he just stuck his head around the corner and the ceiling feel on him. Mr Mannan who had previously been described as a 13-16 fighter slammed Gilsan with as follows a frost rift, a poisoning, feverishness, another frost rift and finally drowsy (these are the spell effect descriptions you tell me the spell i do not know as Gilsan is my first toon); while he and his 3 elitist friends literally handed gilsan his head Mannan was hitting for 22 to 28 range
Same Loot Table as Elite Gnolls

Mannan appears to simply be a slightly beefed up Elite Guard. I have killed him twice since I have been playing (since March of 1999). The first time, over a year ago, he dropped a collar (can't recall which one), but the same variety dropped by the Elite Gnoll Guard.

Killed him again today and he dropped an Onyx Earring. Appears to be on the same loot table as the Elite Guards, the fact that he is named doesn't appear to indicate anything special.
Courier drop

I killed a gnoll courier today in Black Burrow. Got a no drop map of Q Hills. Anyone Know what to do with it. Oh yeah the Courier was light blue to my 42 warrior, which really surprised me. (I was gathering gnoll fangs to increase Halas faction)

Give the map to Rlica Leafrunner (sp?), she is sitting by the fire in front of SFG next to the two Millers. It is for some quest not sure of the result though.

it is for the club of gnoll bashing you need all 4 drops off the courier you do give it to her the 4 drops are: marching orders, invasion plans, area maps, and encription key(looks like a ring). the weap is a 7/28 5 bane gnoll,5+mana,5+hp,2+agi,2+str. it isnt no drop when ur done give to a newbie great gift my 1 hand blunt isnt even at 60 and i caan hit for 25 consistently.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 08 2002 at 10:30 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I was camping elites, and pop, Mannan and the refugee on me at once. I died, came back with a 51 ranger, she took refugee, killed this bad boy, and what do ya know, a Velium Etched Stone Mace, an major upgrade for me )
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2002 at 9:16 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) A Velium Etched Stone Mace? That didn't happen unless you or your 51 Ranger are the ones who dropped it. Don't ******** us here, we know Velious weapons do not drop in BB or anywhere else in Antonica.

I read these posts and constatnly hear about you high lvl's bragging. Bragging about how you "camp here and slay the entire level". My question is why? A very simple straight forward question. I can understand dropping in to help someone get a body, or passing through to get a little revenge on a named that (like this will ever happen) might not be camped, but to slay the entire lvl? Why?

Indeed, sometime it does seem like bragging - but to some it's not. I play late at night, so there are times when there is noone in the zone but me, so I do not feel quite so bad about what I do to it. At level 34, it is quite easy to literally clear the enitre dungeon of Gnolls before the first one spawns again... When you have had more than one character go through their early life in this "wretched hive of scum and villany", there comes a certain personal satisfaction from being able to exact your revenge for the many trains and deaths steming from these filthy Gnolls. That and I like to be able ot max out my faction hits from these guys whenever I can... I only have one more faction from "Gnoll hits" to max out :)

I agree with you. I do understand that some need the faction, but the entire zone is ridiculous!
RE: Why????

Not sure you realise how boring faction work is hun, you need to kill Thousands of mobs if your deep into a factions hate side. No i'll not being dramatic i'm being literal, Thousands. You might not realise how utterly utterly boring this is, but if you need the faction you try to get some amusement out of it I've trained myself with almost the entire zone to kill it all at once when i was reasing my Q faction, Why? to make it more interesting then killing a thousand mobs one at a time one after another.

This stupid gnoll

By the Gods ppl. Mannon and his kindred have been spawning in BB for the longest time!!
I myself have killed them on numurous occasions. and everytime i run through bb, i look to see if anyones camping the green room. If not, the room is toasted for spell practice(and a few silver) even when i was but a young girl, I killed them. So for the record. they have spawned in the green room since forever.

I was in the snake pit near the green room, when a half elf jerk pulled a huge train of elites, a commanders, and a couple guardsmans.. I looked closely, and sure enough, the mannon of the sabretooth was there.. Taking a chance, i attacked him. I had a group so it wasn't hard. he jumped out of the trains, and attacked me. The train went on following the elf. He hit kinda hard, but conned black to me. He dropped a spiked girdle, no idea if its rare or not. I asked somoene, and they said it was VERY rare... Lucky me :)

Just for people that cant seem find...look harder

He's not a quest

Socho and Mannan DO exist They are simply named gnolls in Blackburrow . Nothing more. They were implemented at about the same time as the Splitpaws were. Mannan does drop the rusty spiked shoulderpads as well does the commanders,and the gnoll high shaman.

I've been camping the green room a lot lately, since the commander's room is always taken. He's spawned three or four times for me, as well as socho. I still haven't looted a single item from them, and they have yet to give me more than 9 copper pieces. I'm starting to hate them for it.

killed him to day took me like 10 seconds not to hard sept for he ran like a coward droped a tooth and a rawhide tunic
# Jun 20 2001 at 1:05 PM Rating: Default
Well, after bringing several characters up in BB, and PLg many others there, I can say that Mannan is MOST LIKELY a recent additon, Rare or no. Killed him once and had pretty plain loot. Just my thoughts...
