A nuisance

The zone is filled with these things. If you make the mistake of attacking one, you will soon have a second and a third and a forth and a fifth, even when you mow them down they respawn and keep adding and also summon.

Was in UP trying to get Elysian armor, and our puller brought in this guy and two Elysians. He brought her down instantly(she was a mid-50 druid) and snared her, she also lost wolf form so I think his proc might have been a debuff. I tried to snare him but HE WAS IMMUNE. Ran to zone. He hides in a bush near the open area where they wander. He has a bright glow about him, which gives him away at night. Watch out, this one is nasty :)
RE: ouch :(

It's not a debuff. DA's can cast/proc dooming darkness which includes an ensnare component. Anything with an ensnare component will overwrite any form of sow which includes sow/soe/wolf forms.

You can not recast sow/soe/wolf form until the dooming darkness if removed. You'll get the "not take hold" message if you try.
Crappy Drop Rate
# Apr 04 2003 at 1:41 PM Rating: Decent
The armor drop rate on this is rare at best. We had a pickup raid in UP and ran around the zone killing about 30 of these and not 1 piece dropped. Killed 1 Dark Master for the Boots, found another Dark Master rotting with his junk Gauntlets.

This gear is really nice, but don't expect to show up and have it fall from the sky. 0-30 is a crappy record.

I got a "Sunstone" (worth around 175p at vendor) gem today from this mob. Any idea what it might be for ?

These CAN be stunned as i kept one chain stunned last night with my tstaff. =)

every single one i have ever seen on track and in fights have all been exactly level 55 never to this day seen one that was higher or lower. and dooming darkness sucks if you dont resist it =)

maybe it's been changed since enchanters are unable to mez them now. They are slowable so you can tank/pet mez these.

lvl range ?
# Apr 24 2002 at 5:19 PM Rating: Default
was wondering if a lvl 51 ench would be welcomed to this zone, or am i to low?
any info would ge great thanks
RE: lvl range ?
# Aug 28 2002 at 3:19 AM Rating: Decent

30 timer corpse so some definatly 55+ :)
Generally not hard to land a slow after malo else I'd never consider doing them. Actually, I never do, but they get in my way because of line of sight aggro, but they hit hard, and fast, backstab don't help either.

They seem to have relatively low hp compared to like moktors tho. Moktors are more like warriors, these like rogues with various procs.

If anything your tash should help :)

Do not expect to be doing any mezzing. Also, your slows would generate a TON of aggro (our 53 enchanter often had to run in circles while our tanks + pets kited)
# Apr 11 2002 at 6:30 AM Rating: Default
yes these uys are rogues so watch your back they bs for 500-600 dmg
makes no sense.
# Mar 08 2002 at 11:36 AM Rating: Default
..why bother coming out with a new expansion and not even make the armor better? the assassin gear from PoG is much better than dark assassin gear..for a rogue anyway. Why didnt VI make the stats on these pieces better than PoG that way it will give incentive to but luclin..if this armor was better than PoG's i would have gone out right now and bought luclin but its kinda crappy compared to PoG's rogue armor.
and its around the same lvl mobs that drop it in PoG and Umbral but pog is better..makes sense? nope
RE: makes no sense.
# Jun 20 2002 at 7:46 PM Rating: Good
Yes Luclin isn't the best expansion in the history of gaming but it allows people to do more. There are a lot of other things that are better besides Rogue gear. For those who are in a Guild that doesn't have th epower to get into a rotation raid and who can't join with another Guild on a plane raid or they can but can't loot ( that rule justt sucks, what's the point in being there then). If you can't get to the planes then you can get a group here. It is much easier than even CT now. So it's not all about the most uber armor in the game, if it is to you then stop whining to us about it and just E-Mail Verant or something. But yes, there is better. oh yea, btw, you don't ***** up faction with Druid and Clerics here like PoG. Another reason.
RE: makes no sense.
# May 20 2002 at 5:39 PM Rating: Default
Just another thought, Maybe they made it like that cause not everyone has the most uber armor they can get already so they would welcome this armor on their char. /shrug
RE: makes no sense.
# Mar 12 2002 at 3:57 AM Rating: Decent
just a thought, i'm hoping to get this armor because it's a good bit better than the gear i'm wearing atm but that's not because i'm a rogue. take a look, rangers can wear this stuff also since VI dropped us from the moktor plate armor

ok these guys can't be affected by root/snare line of spells. unmezzable i've discovered this on the occasions that my guild has raided this zone. one thing that you should know is that they can be SLOWED, it's resisted heavily untill they get below 50% health. unless this is some kind of bug that VI has fixed since the last time i was there, you can slow them much easier after you've dropped thier HP below 50%. just a word to the wise

DAs are Undead
# Feb 11 2002 at 2:25 PM Rating: Default
Went there with my guild last night and found this to be true which is probably why they see thru invis. All of my undead spells were landing. Nife, Expel Undead, GB proc of Dismiss. So apparently they are "undead" rogues. Hope this helps :)

as of 1/03/03, these are still undead, as i could hit them repeatedly for 585 dmg with banish undead. It took about a quarter of a bubble of life each hit.

They are definitely undead as of today (10/15/2002). With my 52 Necromancer, I was landing my anti-undead line of spells with no problems. If they weren't undead, I would not even be allowed to attempt the cast, and get the "This spell only works against undead." message, which I did not.

Hope this helps.

When they changed the armor stats purhaps they changed the undead status of these. They definately didn't see through my camo. While fighting Elysians in the corner, a DA and 2 other Elysians jumped us from nowhere, not sure how. Purhaps they are line of sight, but it was a one in a million attack because it never happened again in 6 hours.
they suck!

yeah, i went there yesteday, covered in superior camo, conned indif - and hell, they killed me in few secs after first few steps...watch yer back

Im a 57 shaman and spent the better part of a day in umbral plains, these dark assasins do proc some form of darkness. They can backstab for at least 498 (as our tank found out), and futher cannot be Mezed (49th lv mez), rooted,snared,or hit w/ poisen or disease spells. At least my poisen and disease dots NEVER hit, and trust me I tried (fully debuffed, still couldnt land plague).

Fun Mob and after killing these near zone for aproximately 6 hours, 5 pieces of moktor armor droped, no dark assasin armor, no shoijen armor, nothing but moktor, which is decent stuff. Managed to do that w/ one party.

This mob is considered undead, so all those spells work (easily dotted by 57 cleric)
Pissed off Ranger
# Feb 01 2002 at 9:30 AM Rating: Default
Well it took us quite a few trips to get any loot to drop, seems that the loot is as rare as the 2nd floor of Hate. On our second trip we had 5 drops one of the drops was the legs wich I was awarded to loot, 3 days later some Verant ****** who must have something against rangers pulled the class off the Moktor armor and placed it on the Assasin armor wich in this case was a 6 AC drop and a 5 str drop. Way to go Verant, 3 cheers for the Risk VS Reward outlook you try to imply!

It seems that they don't have their heads in the right places.
RE: Pissed off Ranger

though im not a ranger i would have to agree with you..i came here with my iksar sk first and was highly disapointed when i won a drop for a bracer then learned i could not use due to racial restrictions against iksar..so now i bring my bard here for a little better armor since its quite hard for bards to get decent armor at plate class..all the tanks eat it up :(..anyways now i find that they revamp the drops and its worse..poor me..poor you..poor everyone..yet worse look at the cleric shammy specific drops in this zone..its like level 50 required newb drops from orcs in EC..shamefull..verant you have pretty much made up my mind..luclin is not the place to be if need to get equiped.. /em points to sky at norrath..im coming home......
RE: Pissed off Ranger
# Feb 11 2002 at 12:06 AM Rating: Decent
thanx a bunch verant for taking us off the good armor, rangers have a hard enough time as is trying to get good armor, the risk vs rewards on the armor for rangers now sux, crystal chitlin has bettr ac, and your trying to get us to come to luclin.
RE: Pissed off Ranger
# Apr 24 2002 at 6:34 AM Rating: Good
Ok im getting pretty sick to my stomach about all you complaining about rangers getting taken off the moktor list. Give me a break, its PLATE! You knew when you became a ranger that you could not wear anything heavier than CHAIN. But yet here you are complaining that you cannot wear plate armor. Give VI a break. They made a mistake and put rangers on the moktor list. Why dont you go ahead and program a game with NO mistakes, whatsoever. You wouldent even know where to begin. Thats why verrant has patches. To fix their mistakes. No matter how many times they run the program and de-bug it, you will allways have something wrong with it. so quit your whinning and get over it.
