He's on KromRIFF faction because I am still scowling with him and up to threatening with Zek.

every time i go to kael either raid or to check on kt or statue i kill him cuz i can just stand behind him hit duelist and backstab a double backstab can kill him easy and he is always dead before my duelist runs out so he has about 1500 hp at tops double 600's backstab will take him to 20 percent and hit auto attack usually kills him in the one round

I attacked him with my monk (40 at the time) and he hit in the 20's-30's.... took out about 300hp's.... so, i dont think he is lvl 60 or i would have died. BUT he IS 100% magic resistant... 54 shaman got resisted of ALL spells.

I just went to kill him....he hit to 60 max, havent got alot of hp and can move when you hit him...he can be rdy to attack but will not attack you if you come to him (unless you hit him) so it's not a terror =)
Just for fun

Running throught Kael 1 day I decided to try this guy,Yes he is 100% MR & is rooted to 1 spot,I tryed every speel i got on him just for fun (44 Druid) seems that only debuffs will stick dunno why.+ he does not atk for 350 or 150 or even 100 me being way to low lvl for this zone anyway,he was only hittin me for 60,every time for 60.I gave up and took off
# Feb 13 2002 at 10:11 PM Rating: Decent
If he has a lvl 60s HP and hits like a lvl60 The only thing that makes him NOT a lvl 60 is Con SO he is just Underconned
hmm controversial info here
# Oct 25 2001 at 5:25 AM Rating: Default
I noticed some posts claiming it hits for 350's etc. However, my monk (lvl42 Iksar) kicked his butt last night. Not an easy fight but I wasn't buffed or anything.It was an easier fight than Frost Giant Scouts (which can still kick my butt 9 out 10 times)

me :

1169 hp, atk 924, ac 889

Is it possible this guy spawns in different flavors? I'm sure i'd have been dead if he hit me for 350's.
Cons even...

One day, I was bored so I made a level 1 halfling rogue and got him to Skyshrine :) Indeed, he conned even at level one.
He's a giant...he MUST die

NOTHING taller than 10' needs to live! PERIOD.

As for him being 100% MR, no chance. My 53 air pet can take him down without any buffs at all. With a full set of buffs, the pet only takes about 25% damage. He does resist about 1/4 of my spells completely and about 1/3 more partially, but the rest toast his butt off.

This was the first place I ever remember seeing giant meat drop. Sounds naughty, doesn't it? :)
Wizard Bane Spell

Since the lvl 60 wiz bane spell is unresistable 2k dmg to giants does this apply to a 100% MR giant? I'm dying to know hehe
Wait Wait

Ok I am confused... I See this dude everytime I enter from EW... he is green.. I guess level 1. He doubles for 70-80's against my 950 ac... And I can solo him pretty well at 46 (but I have good gear) he does move from his spot. I'm curious.. are there many?
This guy
# May 21 2001 at 7:00 PM Rating: Default

100% Magic, Disease, Poison, Cold, and Fire resistant.

Permanently "rooted" - He will not move from his spawn point ever.

Doubles for 350s
Kicks for high 100s
Bashes for high 100s

Does not cast any spells

Will assist if trained past, but again, will not move from spawn point.

These are the observations from a Warlock.

Actually I know of at least one Velious quest mob who is easy to kill... the named drake in Skyshrine who gives the Cobalt Scar key quest. He can be soloed by a say lvl 45 pretty easy, and gives a big faction hit (went from scowl to threateningly with giants in only 2 kills). Easy way to get giant faction, only problem is I decided I like dragons better :p

EW-zone recruiter definitely level 1
# Feb 19 2001 at 2:18 PM Rating: Decent
I can confirm the recruiter at EW zone in is level 1, I got a mule (warrior of rallos) over there with some help, and he conned white as I was level 1 with no xp.
Coldain heads for faction.

You hail him. Then say How can I Prove my Loyalty or what not. He says. Go wage war on the coldain and give me the heads and I will tell my people of your deeds.

I tried killin this guy the night Velious came up, at 55 he conned green. I didnt make pet , just rooted and dotted and he has a ton of HP, like 13k or so. Once , root broke, he hit for 120. I got him to about 25% hp and root broke, he double attacked for 350 each. So be warned !!

Heh. The answer to this guy is arrows. Lots of them. I'm on Giant faction, but I saw this guy carrying a crossbow one time and, being a ranger, I had to have it. So, many arrows later, he died and I looted a Coldain Crossbow. Dmg 30, delay 15, range 100, dmg bonus 6. I was jumping out of my chair till I saw the NO RENT and NONE/NONE. What quest is this for? I've never seen him with it before, so it must be rare.
He isn't meant to be killed
# Dec 20 2000 at 4:27 PM Rating: Default
He is for the Coldain Head quest. All quest mobs in Velious have a ton of HPs and hit for massive damage.

As a matter of fact, (if we are talking about the same recruiter that lives just inside Kael at the Great Divide zone) he is level 1. How do I know? I got too cocky with invis on, wandered in the wrong area and got smacked.. so with a few friends we made up a level 1 mule that follows Rallos Zek, and bound him in the city to /corpse me out (and since they aggro on /corpse it was /corpse, death, /corpse, death etc etc). Well, the recruiter conned white to the mule..

And on a side note, snow bunnies conned yellow :)

Other bits.. if you train giants to the zone, he wont aggro you.. actually he wont aggro you under any circumstances unless you whack him. But as was said before, he's a "special" level 1.. he resisted all of my level 50's spells and whacked me for 80'ish when i got near him.
