My lucky day

I know there are lots of junk posts about how lucky someone was, and I really don't want to add to those, but I'm just so darn happy.)

I was in CC today, found me a group with a bst and a druid. Well, to start off my lucky day, we started camping the pit and we came across one of the foremans, pow, killed him in like 5 min, dropped the skullcap. The bst already had one so it was me and the druid rolling against each other. I come out with a roll of 98 out of 100! So, I looted it and was feelin pretty good about myself, well, we got jumped,and the druid had to evac. While we were sitting at the zone line, a lvl 60 who was Pharming for velium shouted "robe on corpse near entrance", so I went down and looted it, thanked him heartily and was on my way. I just need to know should I sell this robe or use it to twink my druid? )

Peace out and to everyone hopin to get a bcr (including me) Good luck.

just farming velium in cc and occasionally taking herby as well if he's around. Killed him 5 times now and of those 5 times i've seen 3 robes and 2 weight reducing backpacks. So either i've been extemely lucky, or you have had bad luck. And maybe it depends on the server. I'm playing on karana.

Happy hunting
spawn.. drop

geez.. the luck of you ppl.. ive been in these caverns for two days looking for the bcr.. ive seen the herbalist a total of 5 times. and once he dropped the ccs.. still no bcr :(
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 10 2002 at 7:36 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I guess I got pretty lucky. I zoned in, this being my first time in the zone, and looked around. I saw some ppl fighting some orcs near the entrance and I moseyed on down a-ways. I found this guy coming towards me. conned him. even con, and I thought what the heck I'll try it. I soloed him as a lvl 30 warrior and barely made it, but I killed him and got the robe! Mind you this is my first time on Velious. I was pretty happy.

Hello all,
I guess this robe is better than a BS tunic. I am a 42nd level cleric. Will I have much trouble if I try to solo him?

#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 01 2002 at 7:12 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) a lvl 35 mage could take him and get that ph33t l33t, well it is ph33t l33t for 35 :)

There are 3 places where he spawns. The tunnel as you are comming from the Ry'Gorr fort if you take a right where it deadends at the dead end he spwans there and it you take a left and drop 2 levels he spawns there. Then if you go to the bottom of the well he spawns there as well. Out of 5 kills he dropped 3 Herbalist Pack and 2 Blackened Crystalline Robes.

He is a random spawn, spawning in anyplace a regular orc can.

I was in CC looking to buy/loot velium. SoW ran out, so I went to exit to recast and this mob was in between the zone-in point and the zonepout point. 1 drones o'doom and 3 firstrikes dropped him. He dropped the blackened crystalline robe. No velium, but at least i have a robe.

Spawned again while I was killing miners. Spawned about 1 hour after the first kill, but in a different spot. Dropped CCS this time.
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 15 2001 at 5:16 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) What is this guys spawn rate and where does he spawn?
# Oct 20 2001 at 4:29 PM Rating: Default
Whenever he is in the hall or something its a trap he runs his little butt around then comes back with 7 unmezzable ones. Just a warning
Easy if he is alone
# Oct 06 2001 at 9:41 PM Rating: Default
Hehe just killed him easy :) i am a level 33 untwinked warrior and i just soloed him. I was lucky as hell but who cares only dropped the CCS though. So he is not to hard, just interupt those anoying heals.

Oh well just my 2cp
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 06 2001 at 12:46 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I am 55 lvl Druid.

I have killed this guy in a group many times. Last night as I was soloing the single miner spawn up top, I thought...it's getting late....I'll solo one more miner. Up pops a Herbalist, He conned white to me, I thought what the heck i'm gonna try. I killed him no problem and I'm 30 level mage. He dropped the CCshroud. Bah I already had one. Oh well maybe next time I'll get the blackened. To make a long story short he will spawn anywhere, and hes not that tough. Good luck and good hunting. The shroud is awesome for a caster.

Can a 35 mage and a 35 ranger take him down easily without no probs?
RE: KILL!!!!
# Dec 29 2001 at 3:30 PM Rating: Decent
Yes, I soloed him at lvl 35 with descent weapons. The only hard thing is getting him alone. It's nearly impossible, so count on taking 2-3 adds (usually oracles and watchmen) so you'll need more.
RE: KILL!!!!
# Nov 13 2001 at 3:19 PM Rating: Decent
Yes, you can. I easily killed this guy as a lvl 30 druid. Not only that, but i have EXTREMELY low wisdom for a druid. I'm pretty sure just rooting and meditating would work. Don't forget to interrupt his heals - they're pretty fast and strong. Good Luck
RE: KILL!!!!
# Oct 23 2001 at 11:19 PM Rating: Default
I have not tried it myself, but judging from other posts i would say yes. A lvl 32 Mob vs a Tank and a Pet caster should be an ez drop, unless he has REALLY good spells. Try it and see, i suspect you will be successfull )
what wimps
# Aug 22 2001 at 6:17 PM Rating: Default
I've been soloing these since i was 30 and they are noithing to worry about. they dont hit hard, their spells are pretty weak and they all in all are nothing to seriosuly worry about. there are 2 things but that is make sure he is rooted/stunned/snared when he is about to run because even with thier low health they can run fast. and when you egt them to about 25% they will try and heal themself.
he really hard mob
# Aug 20 2001 at 12:00 AM Rating: Default
Me 32 monk and friends 40 cleric and 39 cleric were heading down to hunt spiders when we see this guy he doesnt hit that hard and we inturupted ALL his spells with the clerics stun spell and he droped CCS i didnt get to role on it cause me and the other cleric alreay had one and its lore.

Oh btw he spawned on the top ice ledge
# Aug 16 2001 at 8:18 PM Rating: Default
i have a question could a lvl 40 warrior go down there and solo this guy i know hes only 32 but thats high enough to put a beating.

BTW i have full crafted exept crust helm a Wurmslayer and a Short sword og the Ykesa

If it were just him you might be able to solo him. There are always Miners moving around the zone (adds) and to get to him (wherever he is at the time) you would have to go past a bunch of them as well. Best bet is to take someone who can invis and track (ranger/druid with Sup Camo). Tracking will tell you if one is up but other that that it is useless down there with all the twists and ups and downs of the mines.
not good for 25
# Aug 08 2001 at 1:40 AM Rating: Default
i came here at 30 and i never found a group. the ones i did find said that i was too low. maybe i was just unlucky but i wouldn't try it at 25.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 24 2001 at 5:03 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Im a lvl 23 rogue on the povar server. When I hit 25 would it be a good idea for me to come in here for all the nice loot???? I was wandering cuz it says 25 and up on lvls for CC. So if i can come in here ill be very happy but if i get my *** kicked the 1st time i walk in here i wont be ??? answer my question
Verant Give Aways

The BCR is a verant give away. The herbalist spawns quite frequently and anyone who is level 40 can kill him alone.

Who would be dumb enough to pay over 1k pp for this thing? I just went in there and killed him. He spawns quite frequently and for that reason, he is not farmed that often.

Don't pay for this thing. Have a friend who is level 40 or above go in there and kill it for you.

Some mutt's gonna come in here and say, "Oh... I can solo him at 29", whatever, the point is.. this is a give away item.
RE: Verant Give Aways
# Aug 21 2001 at 5:19 PM Rating: Decent
I solo him at 40, I'm a wizard. He walks all over the place in the tunnels up top, just gotta watch out for wandering miners and oracles if you're worried about adds. He seems to respawn very quickly, since I can see him casting spells while I'm medding from killing him.

RE: Verant Give Aways
# Sep 26 2001 at 12:59 AM Rating: Default
I, also, can solo him at 29.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 15 2001 at 12:33 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Oh... I can solo him at 29

Here's something. If SOOO many of you guys have killed this mob, which i do beleive, why not help us out and send in a portrait of him.

Thanks ;)

RE: Portrait
# Dec 11 2001 at 11:15 AM Rating: Decent
Heh, have you been to Crushbone or the deserts of Ro? Jes picture a normal Orc, thats a little bit taller and has pale white skin. Like all other orcs, ever variation of the same faction, look exactly alike. Hehe its like 20 Emperor Crushes running around in one cave =)
BCR for real?
# Jul 10 2001 at 5:51 AM Rating: Decent
Ok, my guildies told me Life Leech drops BCR, not the Herbalist, and in bestiary, it says he drops it. Whats the deal? do both mobs drop the robe?
RE: BCR for real?
# Jul 16 2001 at 5:06 PM Rating: Decent
Yes, both MOBs drop the robe. In the last week I have been in a group which looted it from the Leech, and I solo looted it from the Herbalist last night.
