They will almost always jump you somewhere on the path between G-Fay and Steamfont. They are worse than Equestrielle.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

I stood at +94 -16 in LFay,and watched each of the brownie scouts spawn, then move slightly to where they cast a spell......sent in merc, this is still a good method.

I can also confirm the 15 min spawn time.

My 42 necro made a complete circuit in Lesser Faydark farming pixie wings (zoned after I had 20 wings) and I was never attacked by a brownie ... was I just lucky?

I've been tracking and killing scouts for a little over an hour now, trying to get brownie parts for a quest recipe. They aren't dropping anything at all. Everyone I've killed has been empty of all loot today.

They may be little....

They MAY be little, but the brownie Scout got me down 2 48% before i zoned out. I am a lvl 58 bst. They cast druid spells and heal themselfs they also run fast. Whenever i zone in they start to hit me :( and i belive they are under-coned, at lvl 58 a few were LB. They hit in the 90's and often. Just a little bit of info about them

I disagree. As a level 59 necro, I can easily take out two of them and still have 50% mana. They heal each other a lot, but when you get them oom they die really quick. Most of their spells resisted too.

Killed about a dozen scouts today looking for parts. Nothing. No loot, no coin, no faction hits.

The guards did give up parts, coin, and faction.

exactly I killed the 3 scouts after a lot of tracking. Then I went to the pop spot -9, -8 and they would pop RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME !! Target them, root, Breath of Ro, Winged death and then wait and see them go off into heaven. No more running around.
There pop point!

If you go to Loc Pos 57 Pos 12 after you have killed all the current ones running around and face due south you well see them drop in then just root and nuke no more track and chase...

I was traveling through Lesser Fay
When all of a sudden it wasnt day
I heard a rustling from behind the bush
I think I may just run away

I knew what was coming
The brownies were, of course
to the hills I'll be running
and running till my legs start numbing

I could not outrun them
As they nuked my for 365
I ran into a stem
the stem of and caught sight of a gem

I went to retrieve it
but the brownies had me surrounded
and were having a fit
and they hit and they bit

P.S. Would ya like to buy some Cookies?!?!

As a baker all I can say is...(to the tune of Teddy Bears' Picnic)
"If You Go Down In The Woods Today,
Especially Lesser Fay,
The Brownies Will Hand You A Big Surprise,
A Corpse Run A Long,Long Way.
For Every Scout That Ever There Was,
Is Underconned For Certain,Because
The Brownie Scouts Will Hand You Your ***,
And It's NO PICNIC!!"
Picnic Time for Brownie Scouts,
The Little Brownie Scouts Are Killing
A Lot Of Peeps Today.
See Them,Watch Them Burn Your ***,
They Think It's Such A Gas,
To Root You And DOT You In Every Way.
OMG! They've Charmed You Too,
And They'll Be Using You
To Turn On Your Group
But Hey!
You've Only Died A Coupla Times,
And Just Lost A Level Too,
So Suck It Up And Go Make 'Em Pay!

I have taken to binding at the zone whenever I cross lfay. Whenever one of these little gits nukes me I have time to gate before they can cast again. It can be time consuming but not as long as regaining the lost xp or rez money.

I must say I enjoy getting exp while camping my druid epic pieces... this wasn't too bad of a camp. Just bring someone who can fear and you're set. They spawn right around 0,0. The tainted and corrupted a little hard from what I hear, but they didn't spawn while I was waiting, dang.

If you're an enchanter, you'll probably end up buying from the brownie merchants at some point in your career. With your faction-gaining spells and the proper illusion, you'll be one of the few classes who dare to enter the brownie camp. It has been awhile since I did this but if my memory serves me correctly, this is how to do it:

  • run invisible near the brownie camp
  • target one of the guards
  • back up out of his aggro radius
  • cast Alliance on him
  • con him to be sure he is at least dubious
  • walk into the camp (now uninvisible) near a merchant
  • cast minor illusion to improve faction further
  • purchase the spell from the brownie merchant

    one killed me on my way to mistmoore so after some of my guildees got there on our way to mistmoore again we ran into another one and tore it up (my guildees were 53 cleric, 52 druid, and 31 SK) perhaps we should all raid our local Lfay think about it you higher ups :)

    The only problem I have with these is when they try to sell me cookies.

    But seriously, these little girls can be quite persuasive, like when they VIOLENTLY BLUDGEON ME WHENEVER I TRY TO ZONE TO STEAMFONT! I guess they really need those cookie selling funds.

    I had invis and sow on and followed one I saw spawn. After following him up to the north wall, back near where he spawned, then back up to the wall again, I attacked him. I later saw a brownie in the same location so I think there is a pattern for that area. This little guy managed to bring me down to one bulb at lvl 53. He did manage to get off a DoT on me. I resisted his root. I don't think he got any DD on me. He meleed few times for up to 70, but mostly half that...after all he is just a weakling druid. I just chain stunned him with Stun, Cease, and Desist. DAMNIT NO BROWNIE PARTS!!! rrrrr
    Decent exp too. There was no faction message which I found strange. When you kill the Gfay brownies you get the negative brownie faction.
    Something of note.....he wasnt running fast as I was following him.
    During the fight I took a moment to dispell him. When he started to run away from me, he took off like he had SoW.....somewhere in there he got it cast fast. I just rooted him and finished him off with stunning again. My resists were about 133 MR, and somewhere between 75-95 FR. I was wearing Valorium Greaves (+10 FR), BP of Ro (+10 FR), velium blue diamond bracelet (includes +9 FR MR), Bracer of Ro (5 MR), velium blue diamond electrum earring (has 6 FR 4MR), velium diamond ring (+8 to all saves), and a velium jacinth ring (+14 MR). I also was wearing a White Bear Pelt Cloak that has +3 MR. I have a golden diamond mask that includes +10 FR and +3 MR but didnt have it on me at the time. I was using Wurmslayer (5 MR) and Sarnak Battle Shield (10 FR CR MR). Valor of Marr self haste was in use along with Silvery Belt of Contention haste.
    This scout was blue to me at 53.
