Now that we can see what killing a mob does to our faction, it turn out that killing this guy drops your Geonid Collective faction by -30. A normal Geonid kill drops it by only -5.

After doing the Focus quest if follow Pheno outside him and a few other geo's assemble into a giant one. Then it says "something is wrong, the <whatever> begins to crumble" and he disappears.

I wonder if there is an extension to this quest. It took me 4 tries to get the Pheno Focus, got to ally faction in the process. Hate to wreck faction, in case they add something. desisions disisions.

Yes he does summon, wimpy melee for his level 160ish or so, Very low MR like all geonids, after tash was able to snare and slow np (at lvl 51, he was red to me)

He spawns in a room in the back of the caves surrounded by a crapload of geonids, maybe 7-8. had him to 20% when charm broke and all hell broke loose =p

After participating in the finale of the Phenocryst's Focus quest, I waited around to talk to him (I was at the point in the quest where it is necessary to talk to him the first time). It took about 45 minutes or so for him to show up again after the end of the focus quest.

What is spawn time on this dude?

Totally agree. I was with a full group last night camping the geonids when someone wanted to check ouot this red con on their list. So off we went, and fair enough it conned blue to me at 59 and yellow to our 57 pally. So 58 is definitely the level.

As for killing him... we were talking about staying and just camping him non-stop for a while as he was SOOOOOO easy.

All spells seemed to hit for full (didn't even need to use a lure) and nobody came even close to dying.

One of the easist level 58 critters in all of Norrath. Took him down twice last night with one group(49-60)(chanter, cleric, ranger, rouge, warroir and paladin) without a single causuality. The fight lasted about 3 mins. Doesnt seem to have any special attacks and hits in the 150 range.

HAHA!

If you are an INT caster and if you ***** up your faction with him there is no way to get it back.

Like mentioned above, he does have this nice quest which is doable by a single group of mid 50's and probably can be duo'd by some 60's.

So INT caster's... don't kill this guy!

Actually there is a way to reapir faction with phenocryst. You can repeatedly do the first part of the quest if you bind at Pheno and just gate back each time. Bring a friend with invis :) This worked when I did it but that was a long time ago!

To all of you that kill this guy. hope you never want to do the quest that he is a part of. Because this is what you get at the end of it.
Phenocryst's Focus, handheld, 5ac, 10int, 3dex, 3cha, 3sv fire cold poison disease, 5sv magic, 40 mana. I also think the geonoids in Crystal Caverns are on the same faction to him as well.

hmm, folks keep askin if he drops anything, and i dont see any answeres, just a couple "nana"'s about how those that hunt em cant do the quest, well frankly if your an int caster high enough to take em and you dont have better than the P focus u got serious probs. Go make some cash and get some decent gear. also, it only has 40 mana, and crap resists, so for those of us who maxed int and are looking to mana and resists its kinda worthless. I'd much rather hunt the shimmerings and get shawl 8 then worry about faction needed for a P focus

Check the dates of those posts. Back in those days, P Focus was fairly uber. All those people are talking about PreLuclin.

might i ask if this phebocryst's focus ittem a actual focus item like the mage shovel and stuff
RE: Wimp
# Oct 05 2001 at 11:01 PM Rating: Default
it's not. it just happens to have "focus" in the name, but is in no way connected to "focus" items...hope this helps
