Five and a half minute respawn, and still dblue to a 54 necro, though the xp isn't as nice at 54. Best necro tactic: pull with Bond of Death, send pet, Pact of Shadow pet, Ignite Blood - maybe refresh BoD and PoS midway through - pet will still get beaten down pretty hard, but he should survive - doing this, I've not pulled aggro from pet. Most everything else gets resisted - even at 54.
Bandi guards no more!

I killed Bandi for the first time at lvl 44 but I did have sow and someother Hp buffs on and he resisted like you wouldnt believe. Now at lvl 49 he falls so fast its unreal. First buff pet and get 100% mana, then Sick Pet, Insidious Retrogression, BoD, Lich, Fear if you can, or by this time IR has worn off so hit him again and boom he is down for the count. I prefer to use IR instead of CD since for a high resist mob I would rather do an instant 569 Damage that to snare him with CD and have it wear off before it does sufficient damage. He has Never resisted BoD so that is a great fast dot to use on this mob. Some Jboots are probly nice to have just incase you get a resist somehow but your 49 pets hits so hard that he pisses Bandi off fast enough that he will never reach you if you cast from max distance. Bandi now falls on KB 1 or 2 times a day. I think I will camp him for fun one time just to wait for a noob train to run to a non existing bandi so I can laugh my a$$ off

5 min 30 sec respawn, drops a fine steel 2HS every time, and usually about 4 plat and change.
# Sep 15 2002 at 2:02 PM Rating: Decent
Killed him for first time, lvl 51 Necro, resisted alot, finally Pet taunted it off. Resisted almost all spells except BoD and Ignite Blood. fear doest last long, but buys time for pet heals.
Strategy: Send pet in, cast shadow pact on pet, BoD, lich, Ignite blood, Dooming Darkness till stuck (allowed time for pet to build up agro) use renew bones as need and Shadow pact, hp tap as often as needed. Once darkenss struck, fear if u can. Continue with BoD, shadow pact and renew bones. Max 120 sec fight, walked away 40% mana, pet 60% health. Decent xp at lvl 51, almost 1/5 blue, tough part is waiting for it to spawn again. Killed him 5 times, 2 for me and 3 for a friend :).
PS: if darkness resists, use ignite blood next, instead of repeating same spell till sticks. FD works on this guy, keep Harmshield mem :) I used it to let pet get agro. By next spawn, harmshield is back.
TJ and his pet bear next :)
2 Things about Bandl
# Jul 15 2002 at 1:42 PM Rating: Excellent
1:) A level 9 shammy I know just got SOW and he was innocently stnading by Bandl and began to cast it, and bang, Bandl hits him for one fatal blow and says something like "it's young shamen like you that are a disgrace to the shaman guild" or something similar. Was this because he cast SOW and Bandl doesn't like anything to do with wolves??? Just seemed odd that he whacked out a barb shammy.

2:) Someone in the zone messaged me with a horrified "they just killed Bandl!!" message, and there were messages in ooc about how peple were really shocked, lol. Seems he aggroed some high level KOS necro and she smoked his *** down to a smoking hole in the ground. I might be a barb but I LMAO, I mean it's not like these guys are sacred or anything. So everyone had to run to Snowflake for safety from the big momma mammoths till Bandl spawned again. Call me twisted, but it WAS funny.

Oh, by the way...he is dark blue to me at this possible if he's only 40? He seemed like he was tougher than 40. I'd say closer to 45.

This guy is indeed tough. he was hitting pretty hard and fast (a couple hits for 120). I got down to 2 bubbles when he wasnt even 1/2 down yet and started to panic b/c I couldnt get roots to hold for more than 1-2 seconds, so I couldnt heal myself. I decided to use lay hands(nice paladin complete heal ability, for those who don't know) and was lucky enough to tank him down. I was down to about 3 bubbles when he died, so I did better the seconds part of the fight. I have 2324hps and 932ac(with a few self buffs). He was tough, but since I didn't have sow and was unable to root him(VERY HIGH MR!), I was lucky. thank goodness for my etched velium warlance(30/35 2hand pierce) and silver chitin hand wraps. I would have been dead before I had these. Good luck to you all. =)

Bandl got buffed.
# Feb 25 2002 at 7:25 AM Rating: Decent
I tried to kill this guy a while a couple months ago with my 50 Necro and then again with my 51 Bard. Neither one could get any spells to stick at all. He has ungodly magic resist. I figure if there is no possible way to raise faction with something I should be able to kill it at will. The evil guards in areas of the same level are not this buff.
Necro Quest?

How is this guy involved in the Words of Darkness quest for Necromancers? The quest info really doesn't say.
# Jan 19 2002 at 8:29 PM Rating: Default
im a 53 mage... killed this guy without any problems... pet attack, malosei, and nuke,,, pretty easy.... just no exp.

o well
Screw Barbarians!

Ok, checked to see what I could do to get some faction with these @#$%s - they only want you to kill folks that'll hose off your dark elf alies - gee, get to dubious with the barbarians and lose my dark elf faction or just wait till I've got the levels to take these SOBs down for pleasure and sport?

This troll SK is gonna wait. >:)

For all the Darks, and Necros, Sk's.... There is no way to get faction up for halas except inside the city.... But dont think that youll have someone invise you and do the faction quests while your invised it doesnt work AT ALL..... as i found out on my SK when he was a youngster
I escaped

I'm a level 24 druid and I was killing polar bears in Everfrost for the skin for leatherfoot raider skullcap. I just about had a polar bear dead and this guy attacked me. He was hitting me for about 25 - 120 dmg and I started running. I had sow on luckily and I outran him and made it to permafrost zone with 1 bub health left. I will get this guy back for that later, you can count on it....the little punk arsse.

# Jan 11 2002 at 6:31 PM Rating: Decent
You had sow on, or you were in wolf form? I've never seen bandl aggro on anyone who wasn't either KOS to barbs or in wolf form.

Can't wait
# Sep 23 2001 at 9:56 PM Rating: Default
I this dude. My first serrious character was a barb, and i loved this guy. Then my necro went to everfrost to solo calves. I knew i was kos, but it is VERY annoying to run past the guard and instead of helping you, he helps whatever is chasing you first! I set my bind point about 50 feet behind him, so i could shadow step then gate, and the mob would have to get by him. Don't know how this worked, but the mob got past him after like 5 min. and me being my feeble necro self medding, it hit me for 50 twice by the time i got up, then i was so low that it was impossible to taught away and killed me. I can't wait to have my vengence!
# Aug 24 2001 at 12:22 PM Rating: Default
your gonna petion for someone killing a mob because your safty net is gone well cry cry.

Well if you petioned for that then i would have to petition you for killing mamoth calfs. what a stupid thing to say. now more than ever i cant wait to kill this guy just to watch the newbie barbs complain about it.

start a dark elf and you will grow up with your guards always beeing killed and then you will learn to survive without running to daddy when the polar bear is to bid for ya.

everyone get together and kill bandle on your server make the barbs die

necro and faction
# Aug 02 2001 at 11:51 AM Rating: Default
necro at 49 or higher can solo him, (like i do, 53th necro and he's awesome exp).. first bond of death, pact on pet, then keep draining him to death (no other spells or resisted)..

and his faction is:

WolvesOfTheNorth got worse
MerchantsOfHalas got worse
SteelWarriors got worse
ShamanOfJustice got worse

(im not sure if this is correct, but it's bout that)
# Aug 01 2001 at 10:43 AM Rating: Default
love to see people kill this barb. Barbs think nothing of offing the de guards but listen to them throw a fit when bandle dies very funny
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 12 2001 at 5:04 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) HI all i rely on this gut cos i hunt there for level 7 is a warrior so if my dads 12 shaman aint there i need the guard i can solo the things i need so please DONT KILL HIM......
RE: in antone kils him im gonna go spazzo in bezercer frenzy
# Jul 19 2001 at 12:37 AM Rating: Default
Hmmm, I've never seen anybody go spazzo...might just have to stop by and kill him and see what this looks like. Coincidentally, I'm on the same server as you...see you soon. ;o)
Extremely high MR, tons of hitpoints
# Jul 05 2001 at 2:48 PM Rating: Decent
Been camping Everfrost guards all this week.

Bandl has incredible magic resistance. Maybe one in 10 Retributions lands for full damage. Not good news for us Clerics who thought we might try soloing him.

On top if his MR, he is also blessed with a lot more hitpoints than a regular mob of his level would have. With a level 45 warrior tanking, I have to Complete Heal 3 times during the fight before he goes down.

An easy way to kill Bandl, and avoid coming face to face with Tundra Jack and his sidekick Iceburg, is to pull Bandl west (towards blackburrow) from his spawn point. Kill him there in that cavern, and you won't ever need to worry about TJ interrupting your fun.

Bandl drops the Fine Steel Two Handed Sword he always spawns with and 1-5pp in coin.

I personally take great joy in giving the weapons to newbie Barbarians in the zone. /grin

What is his faction?
I'm a Dark Elf Wizard. I have slain tons of gnolls and gotten most of the npcs in qeynos to amiable. But I can't seem to get the folks in everfrost or Halas to like me. Who do I have to grease to get faction with this guy?
# May 30 2001 at 4:28 AM Rating: Decent
I am a lvl 52 mage and have killed this guy several times. He is a very difficult mob even at my lvl. Very MR until I land a malo on him. Even with my nukes, I still go through two pets fighting him and only have about a bub and a half of mana left after the fight.
#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 23 2001 at 10:04 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Of corse he is hard to a mage. I dunno why you would be a mage since almost always they solo, when you can solo him at a much lower lvl without nearly as much trouble as a necro. I guess because your non kos or something(shrug).
See invis
# Feb 25 2001 at 3:22 AM Rating: Default
I was invisible and ran past him. Imagine my surprise when he suddenly attacked and began to beat the crap out of me. (I am an Erudite necromancer; I *did not* have a pet at the time.)
Luckily I was SoW'd, and so successfully ran all the way back to Blackburrow.

I guess he can see through invisibility.

In order to get past him, I always run along the opposite side of the top of the mountain. :P

To Whom is may concern,

The date is january 7th/01 6:50am, ran into him in Everfrost near the entrance to all the mammoths and the like, coned blue to me at 44th lvl and every snare i casted he resisted save 1 and other spells do not last long on him either i noticed, seems verant dont want you to kill him hehe, i casted snared a total of 50 times, well seemed like 50 maybe 20 to 30, and only 1 took wasted most my mana at 44 to try and use regular snare on this sucker, he wont resist Drifting Death but doesnt seem to last long to me when i was running him around near the entrance to BB just in case i had to zone which i did, was oom and he was still almost Full health, im KOS to them due to killing Frostbite and Einhorst and Ulrich, was omw out there to find something to kill to raise faction with them, he is not something you would want to kill being near my lvl unless of course you have a pet then maybe you would be able to solo him with pet, but he hit for about the 100 in slashing and 20 to 30 with kick. have fun and may tunare be with thee.
# Feb 28 2001 at 7:10 PM Rating: Good
Yeah, I've played a couple of barb characters, and there may be some truth to your theory about Verant not wanting you to kill him. There is one other set of guards you can run to on a bad pull, but this guy is way more convenient. If he's dead you have people training orcs to near Halas and wiping all the barb newbies out.
