He is charmable for those wondering. Good pet for just spam killing spiders or wtvr. He does 59 normal dmg and 169 backstabs as a pet

Killing him will decrease faction with "The Forsaken," but improves faction with "The Legion of Cabilis" and "The Brood of Kotiz."

Soloed today with my 22 slightly twinked warrior. Pulled him out to beach by way of arrows. Distillate of skinspikes kicked his butt, While I hammered away on him with my BoC. I had 59% left when he went down. Dropped his head, the ulak, a gold ring and some piddling change.

NASTY backstab

He hit me today for a 20 backstab and was averaging hits in the mid to upper 40's. So much for my lvl 14 ranger camping the maurader caves
Faction for Kerosh

He gives no faction hits.
Killed him 3 times so far

I play an Iksar Necro, and upon reaching level 30 I decided to give Kerosh Blackhand a go.

He was easy to pull as none of his henchmen were interested in me, so I pulled him to the beach, and parked pet.

These spells did the trick for me: Fear, Dooming Darkness, Vampiric Embrace, Fear, Spirit Tap, Spirit Tap, Fear, Spirit Tap, Spirit Tap, etc...

I found that if he is not Feared, then he eats the pet in about five hits, then starts interupting all spells.

To prevent him going under the world I had to keep him in sight where ever the Fear sent him.

This strategy has been successful every time.

Interesting note, he still cons red to me, but Pendle Dashinger is now dark blue, and Pendle of course remains unkilled by me.

Ive gone in his cave alot, heres all info I that is pretty much possible. The first thing is there are 9 spawns, usually there are 3 Manslayers, A pariah, Kerosh, and all rest is Mauraders. By the time you are lv.32 all Mauraders and Manslayers will not bother you. (don't sit down, they'll try to jump you) Only need to worry about is Pariah and Kerosh.

Kerosh - 70damage max Backstab - 239damage max
Hes only Lv.30, same as Iksar Bandit Lord, he conned blue to me at 32 and has same damage as a 30.

I found that out while sitting down, and he popped right behind me.
Pierced YOU for 70damage
Backstabbed YOU for 239damage
Slashed YOU for 70damage

Plus when you fight this dude don't solo, especially with your Warrior. Its always easy to find someone willing to help in Field of Bone, usually heading to Kaesora.

Not much more then that, oh plus, players in feld of bone are usually scared of him because they usually just wonder in his cave and get raped badly. Lol, I made everyone so happy to kill him with a monk's help.

P.S. You can give the kids a scare in fob by taking his weapons and walkin around zone with Trooper Scale armor on, you'll look exactly like him.

The manslayers attacked my 51 druid when he got to close to them, not that I had anything to worry about.

This one bard started to train my friend so i started fighting the mobs for him then he pulled this guy and i teamed with the bard he slowed the guy while i attacked him and right when he it was about to die i disbanded and got all xp and all the fine steel weps on him (5) and his head :)
saw him today

I was with a necro at the cave while i was pulling some things for us. He hurts big time, backstab is a main hit. To add more fun, a couple of manslayers joined in. Just a note, be careful when you pull. Marauders manslayers atc. aggro from far away.

I was attempting to solo the mis-named marauder cave when this guy came out. Myself (lvl 19 War at the time) and a lvl 21 shaman were handling the mauraders with ease, so I figured I could take the mauraders at least two by two. And then this guy shows up. Luckily I only got backstabbed once, but he still killed me VERY fast. I detailed my experience out of character, and a level 53 monk went down and cleared the place out, and let me loot. I took his head to get the note, but turned in the note with SMALL BANDED. Only medium banded works...I totally wasted the quest (smacks forehead).
He's mean

My friend and I were traveling near kurns, both lvl 13 at the time. We were traveling along the road, looking for that Scourgetail Scorpion, and we ended up at the beach. We were running along it and then he found a hole in the wall. He said "lets go inside", so HE did, i waited....1 minute later he comes out with 3 manslayers and Kerosh on him, 20 20 20 20 20 230 BOOM. I just ran, then Kerosh got on me. I managed to pull off a gate luckily, then i tried to go get my friend's corpse. Kerosh was waiting for me on the road to the beach.I thought he was underground because i couldnt see him. Then i saw some iksar in green armor. "Kerosh Blackhand hits you for 78 points of damage"Kerosh Blackhand backstabs you for 238 points of damage"You have been salin by Kerosh Blackhand!"

It's just not fair...

It's just not fair...I can't be an Iksar Rogue...but this bum for an NPC can...what kind of crap is that...and please tell me why everytime I decide to clear out that damn cave with my friend and he is there...he chases me out...and then sits down...and I can sit next to him...and he won't aggro me anymore...he's

Details on Kerosh
# Dec 31 2001 at 8:23 PM Rating: Excellent
Kerosh is always the same lvl. I am not sure if 33 or 34 but he was always blue to me at 44th and 45th and always light blue at 46th lvl. As an Iksar Warrior I solo him for exp, one of the few I can solo that are blue. His PH is the kneeling manslayer in the main room in the middle of the south end. He will aggro you if you go down the tunnel to where it turns left but not if you wait half way down the tunnel. His aggro range increases if you sit or if you are fighting any type of maruader manslayer bandit type nearby.

Because he is a rogue with backstab, you want to avoid running from him. If you have SOW you can prob make it to kurns zone or wwoods zone though. His run is just average speed. He drops his head for trooper scale gauntlets quest and a Fine steel spear and fine steel ulak. He usually also drops 1 to 3 other items like gems, runes, words, a finely crafted wpn etc.

Agros above the cave
# Oct 15 2001 at 8:15 AM Rating: Default
I was testing my rain of lava spell on the two bandits that spawn above the maruader cave. Next thing I know, the entire cave is on me. After fleeing, I returned and parked my pet above to guard, while I levitated down (with the thought I would summon companion) once I arrived. Next thing I know, my pet is dead and there is Kerosh. Loading please wait.

Morale: just kill him and don't ***** around
heh...i wussyfied him....
# Oct 04 2001 at 7:44 AM Rating: Decent
I'd encountered this guy once before...was Me at lvl 38, and a ranger friend of mine at 22. At the time I'd never seen him before, and my friend saw him on track...we were led to the edge of the cliff, and i knew that he had to be in the marauder caves...i sneak/hide down there, he was blue, so i knew he'd whomp me, but me and my friend said what the hell, and tried anyways, and i was right...he whomped us.

Earlyer this afternoon, a 30th lvl monk friend of mine, and myself whomped him back good. I used a parilyzing poison III, which is minus 50% to atk.
I wussyfied him, it was like fighting a lesser charbone with a crap ton of HP.

He gives no faction though ( oh well

also, while i'm at it...anyone have any idea why my faction with the Legion of Cabilis maxed out at warmly?

Oh well, 'till next time, I remain me...

I've read from reliable sources that your faction with any given group maxes out at 2000 points above your original faction standing with them. Cabalis is a great place to test this idea, as virtually everyone is deeply KOS there. I'm still working on my Cab faction, though, so I haven't maxed out yet.

Strangely, it took me probably a couple dozen times as many kills to get to max negative faction with Deathfist Orcs as it did with Pickclaw Goblins, even though I started at scowling with orcs and dubious with gobos. I fought extensively at the orcs in EC at lower levels, then slaughtered them and their pals in WC off and on while trading in the tunnel for a long time before I maxed...I did the Guard Room in the High Keep basement for maybe a few hours before I maxed out. Weird...

btw what is that punch dagger thingy or other weapons get got? gotta turn it in for quest?

You jackass, wtf is a dr00d? I really wish people would quit that. Why dont I ever hear of a W4rr10r? Or a r0gu3?
RE: hard mofo
# Oct 15 2001 at 9:48 PM Rating: Default
uh, this guy has no chance in hell of hitting for 180 unless your back is turned. i squished him good with my monk (lv45) and he never hit me for more than 78, even when i clicked the sit button by accident=P he does seem to hit pretty hard for his level tho.
cool armor

I had never seen him before and I have been in the Field of Bone since Kunark opened.
At level 34 (iksar monk) in full Wu's or better. I had NO chance against him - he attacks at least twice as fast as I did plus he has that NASTY backstab.
I don't think I did better than take his health down about 25%.
Then again I had no buffs or weapons. Still he was a blue con.
Really nice looking character though.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 29 2001 at 4:31 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i killed him he drops the ********* weapon and he is very easy to solo at level 38 anyhow just to let you know the weapon is not for any quest and kerosh is a gya **** cockmaster ....
