I am not looking to get banned or anything but I hear there is a way to pull these guys without any ads or clearing anything out. Something about targeting him on the outside of the castle walls, and he 'pops' on you. ?

Griffin Feathers & Ry'Gorr

I read that you'll get random pieces of Ry'Gorr armour if you give the Blacksmith a Griffin Feather. Is there any truth to this? It's really water under the bridge since they now CON KOS. I don't know why? I've only killed a couple of them.

The Blacksmith and his brother Firbrand - On camping the duo
# Dec 04 2001 at 7:32 PM Rating: Excellent
Aloha all and well met -

In my travels across velious I have come upon these two brothers: The Blacksmith of Ry'Gorr and his elusive twin Firbrand. Both have taken residence in the Eastern room of the Ry'Gorr Fortress for the time being, outfitting the local orcs there with all sorts of Velium weapons.

Sadly, however, in my 20 or so levels in this zone, I have never seen the two on track at the same time. I thought something to be amiss - so I went to investigate. Gathering friends, we cleared the fortress of all the orcs, including the Blacksmith and set our watches. About 30 minutes had passed, and the Smith popped, I suppose to make more weapons for all the new orcs. Over the next several weeks, we hunted the orcs of the fort, and when the Blacksmith did not show, his brother Firbrand was there.

We found the spawn rate for Firbrand to be about 1 in 6. This translated to a set of Gauntlets of the Black about every 3 hours. Sometimes, Firbrand did not have the Gauntlets; rather he would have the item called the Dark Ember. It was clear to us when he had this, for he would be weilding this large club in his hand, and it would cause significantly more damage to our party. He seemed to have the Dark Ember about 1 in every 8 times (Thus estimate about 1 per day; or 1 in 48 chance; 2% spawn.) Please note that these are estimates, and that Firbrand has popped twice in a row, both times with the Dark Ember, making the two young clerics in my guild giddy with joy for their new weapon :-)

Take care when fighting him with his club. Sadly, once, our friendly druid cast a DOT spell on him, and Firbrand turned to run and died -- 60 feet in the air at the top of the tree. Make sure your killing blow allows thee to acess the corpse.

We found the Dark Ember's price to have fallen over the last 6 months, from a high of over 3,000pp to a current selling price of around 1,500pp. I anticipate that the price will continue to drop, but will not fall below 1,000 because it is a lovely weapon for Wisdom Casters.

I hope that this information finds you well, in good health my friends.

#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 09 2001 at 2:14 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Well I was fighting im at 35 and usually dieing and rezzing I got to 40(Rogue BTW)and did thee old hide/sneak/BS and usually took him out as my group covered me butt.Well I have never got the black gaunts as you are all saying but I have received more druid/cleric spells off them though.I did even get some armor off the sorry chumps even.My guild didnt want but helped so I kept running to sell and porting back and forth to make some coin..I made out--So my question is whats the problem???This is a true Hack/Slash and Quest game if ya dont like what ya fight go fight Nagafen by yourself why dont ya.....

My friend your above post makes no sense what so ever. Try editing it and retyping what you were trying to say in a series of coherant sentences that might help people to understand what your point is.

For everyone out there reading this bunch of jibber jabber, i would like to give you the facts. Blacksmith is place holder for Firbrand, usually 1 in 10 or so. Firbrand drops Gob's everytime and DE 1 in 20, unless a war is triggered then he always has DE. How do I know?? Ive been camping this fort for 6 weeks now. Good hunting and dont tell everyone you know, Rygorr is an awesome xp and loot camp. Btw pc on DE is 3K

Gaunts of the Black
# Oct 14 2001 at 10:38 PM Rating: Default
My group slaughtered the smith 3 times last night and he dropped the guants once. No one wanted the guants though, finally I think the cleric took em. Pretty interesting crew, btw. We were all between 42 and 44, with a cleric, a druid, my shaman, and a wizzie that liked to tank, with a 100 dly staff. I gave her quickness and she was happy because then she could miss twice as often. )

pain is an illusion

feeling eternal all this pain

Ok, he does drop something...

I killed him 3 times yesterday and 2 times I just got a RyGorr Scalp. Nothing to mention. But on my 3rd kill he droped the Lvl 39 Druid Spell Ro's Fiery Surrounding, a spell I've been looking for month now. I never found this spell for sale and on trips to IC and the Tower I wasn't able to get me one.

It might that he drops a random lvl 39 velious spell rarely. At least I am lucky he did it once, hehe.

Ulthork Manowars drop Ro's Fiery Sundering also, got 2 the other evening, and also in GD the same spell drops off of Shardwurms.

okay here is the real skinny..listen up...the blacksmith of ry is the place holder and drops nothing...nada. he is the placeholder for firebrand the black...and he drops the goods..
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 19 2001 at 12:04 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This **** drops the Dark Ember
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 12 2001 at 11:25 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Yes he does drop the dark ember
RE: Hemic
# Aug 09 2001 at 10:26 AM Rating: Default
Doesn't drop dark ember, is PH, fibrand either drops guants or in our case the ember.
He Is a place holder
# Jun 09 2001 at 11:03 AM Rating: Decent
The Blacksmith is a placeholder for Firbrand the black. Firbrand always drops guants of black unless he is holding the Dark Ember.Ember is very rare
#Anonymous, Posted: May 24 2001 at 9:57 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is for the people who think rare drops from more common mob's does not happen ... IT DOES..killing in the cellars of KC we kiled the undead jailer and it droped the JB greaves ... yes the JB greaves we each looked twice .. we could not believe our own eye's... the greaves are posted as only being droped by Ven Sathir Him self ... so trust me it does happen

# Feb 07 2001 at 11:23 AM Rating: Decent
The Blacksmith doesnt drop the Gauntlets ... Firbrand the Black does (there the common) and the Dark Ember is the Very Rare.

Camped Firband Last night for about 4 hours. He never spawned. The blacksmith did not drop any Guantlets. Just FYI
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 04 2001 at 12:46 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Are you old enough to play this game?! Obviously not intelligent enough to do so. You lack the intelligence to come up with good descriptive adjectives, instead you have to try to fool the language filter. /cheer to you for your calm intelligent response, the rest of us surely KNOW how RIGHT you are now.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 14 2001 at 7:49 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) One more thing. I know i just flamed, but i was really angry. I just hope people will stop flamaing, and people will stop assuming things. Go ahead and flame me, but i prolly wont read it, and most likely wont care, seeing as it just better proves my point.
RE: Loot and Level Info
# Aug 14 2001 at 7:47 PM Rating: Good
Why do you have to crit others peoples response? I know it wasn't the most "intelligent" repsonse, but i know when people get angry, they start to go ballistic on other people. And when other people are obviously wrong, you have a right to be mad! Especially when they are posting on a message board. People actually come here for info on the mob at hand. I come here to find things, but most of all, i have to trudge through this crap(people flaming eachother) to get to anything. The worst thing people do, is assume things. I HATE that, they just say something, and hope its right, that just annoys me. I would really like to come here for information, not people yelling at eachother. I would also like if the info was true. Maybe 1st hand expierences, instead of assumptions...
RE: Loot and Level Info
# Mar 22 2001 at 8:49 AM Rating: Default
yeah, sometimes some mobs have the rare of another mob as their common drop.

the SSB is like that now.

i like it. not in this case, but in other cases, they have taken the common drop off a high level mob, and made it the rare drop off a lower level mob.

this makes over-camped common gear actually obtainable to lower levels through clearing. as opposed to just buying. by the ways, SSBs sell for 50pp on prexus now, if you aren't in a hurry to get it, all because it is the common drop off a mob that is camped 24/7.

thae gaunts of the black are dropping rapidly in price now because the amount of people killing him 24/7.

people are selling these constantly. so many out there people have to drop prices to sell them.

What he means is the rare of Mob A, lvl 20, will have, as a rare drop, item X. Mob B, lvl 30, will have, as a common drop, item X. Totally hypothetical of course, but it is true.

Always red/yellow with more being red at 35. Could land spells occasinally at best on some of the red ones. Prob range is around 37 to 41 mabye up to 42 rarly.
# Jan 03 2001 at 5:04 AM Rating: Decent
I agree with last post 35-40 is probably correct had highest so far con red to me at 37 but I could still land spells
# Jan 02 2001 at 3:05 PM Rating: Default
had one conn white to me (lvl 40 pally) and the rest blue, so i'd say prolly 35 to 40?
# Dec 29 2000 at 5:20 AM Rating: Default
I would just like to say that there is no way this mob is lvl 35, he conned red to me at 37, I think he is more around 40ish....
RE: Correction
# Feb 07 2001 at 1:54 AM Rating: Decent
The lvl range is from 35 to 40. Just because that one conned red to you does not mean they all do.
