NOT the one for Hunter achievement

Killing a fungus covered shroom does not update the Hunter Achievement for Dawnshroud Peaks. It asks for Fungus Covered Shroom, which has no listing in ZAM, nor have I ever seen it on track. I think there is a bug here, or this guy is really rare.

I found the one required. He doesn't just randomly spawn, he must be actively spawned, and then he's a rare. I'll leave it to you to find where.

Also drops a moon jewel. At 51 all the mushrooms I've come in contact with at Dawnshroud Peak have been grey and melee.
Casting Shroom

Well my ranger had been killing the shrooms just left from the entrance to DSP from Neth lair - about a hundred or so in between other mobs.
Surprise - all of a sudden I had creeping crud and immolate on me - at first the shroom did not run to me attacking (clue it was a caster) - also went toe to toe with it and it had on skinspikes damage shield hitting me and kept healing itself. Ouch. Got it down to 7% but decided to bail as it got me to less than 30% HPs very fast and I about 1800 HPs to begin with. My AC was 844. Needed a wizzy along to take it out lol. But watch out - tough to solo at my level even though it conned dark blue.

I just killed this mob and it dropped "a spotted mushroom" Unlike the items above, this one says it can be used in tradeskills. Haven't looked it up yet, but thought I'd mention it.

I should note. It is "A Spotted Mushroom". I also just got "A Spotted Shroom" and it does not say useable in tradeskill.

Killed many of these with no problem. Then one day I got hit with root, dots, and my spells kept getting interupted. Have not figured out what makes these casting shrooms spawn. Those that haven't encountered these shrooms consider your self lucky. The non casting and casting all conned dk blue to me and the names were the same.

Ok guys, I've had several of these buggers cast on me at several different points in the game. Including dying to one after I gated out when dotted and rooted.

I just solo'd 2 of them, both conning dk blue, with at least one casting on me. Root, root, dot, dot, nuke, nuke, reroot, get rooted, nuked, and dotted in the process while getting smacked around as well.

Had to cast about 2-3 heals on myself in the process to keep from dying. My first heal went off at 5% health.

These are the 3 right there near the entrance to Netherbian's Lair in DSP. Come out of NL, and go left.

Oh, BTW, I'm a Wood Elf Druid of the 38th Season with about 780 HP unbuffed.

they seem to be higher in the house, at 38 some are still dark blue and giving 1% and rarely 2% exp, and still better exp than tribals.

i think the dblue shrooms are 'a fungi shroom' rather, because some of the shrooms are light blue.

thats the shroom that you lal have had trouble with, hes an SK, and hits harder than the others. around 30ish to 40ish. i think he spawns in place of the other shrooms, though he might wander around dsp. i havent been there yet, so i dont really know, but i remembered the post on him.

hmm, edit doesnt seem to work well, anyway the house isnt hard, just pull from a distance and you should pull one at a time only. i just sit pet down outside it, buff him, run in and hit with low level DD to pull, then let pet do all the work healing when necessary. fire pet works well.

These shrooms sometimes (About 95% of the time) pop as druids. They root, cast creeping crud, and stinging swarm Smiley: eek. Very annoying when pulling from a distance, dont try this alone kids. Try to be lvl 36 and with a pet (However, I once soloed these bs'es with my 29 BST w/ pet.)

I camped these things for hours and never had a single one cast on me... maybe they were out of range. I'm using extended range II and my necromancer dots while my druid partner roots.

just finished dying to one... first time (after killing about 30 or so shrooms in DP) that I had one cast... also managed to aggro a blood starved wolf (which normally doesn't bother me) at the same time, thus ensuring a quick death for my Ranger...

Okay, after spending alot of time up here, and killing many many shrooms, that they are a large OVER con, yes over con, they con dark blue to me at 34, give good exp, and drop easier than a gnoll in south karana. unless im not seeing these shrooms "hitting for 100 and nuking for 300" (never seen in my life) these things are easy.

I'm a 41 warrior ...
most of them are melee only and light blue (dark blue at 30)
Occasionally you will find one that is a caster (coned white at 40) I was able to straight melee the caster to death but ended up with about half a bubble of life left ... still never got any loot off em.
Also the melee ones are pretty easy to kill from 32 on and good xp till 38.

One more thing the fungis covered mushrooms they drop can be turned in for xp to riker rikes , a gnome at on of the camps in DS got real xp till about 36 for this turn in. (or sell to a vender for 3 pp)

I would really like to kno what the other no drop mushrooms are for ...
Crazy schroom dropped this....

I just killed one of these immediately left of the Netherbian Lair entrance. There was only one around, light blue to my 39 cleric.
It was hitting me with little pansy nukes, burst of flame or such for 12-18dmg. I chain-stun-nuked it, using up most of my mana. It dropped the Akel's Longsword and some other no-drop leafy-looking thing. I didn't bother looting anything.
I advertised that the sword was up for grabs, a ranger asked about it but it's shd/war/pal only.

The ones that heal are around level 32, and they are druids. This one spawned to the left Netherbain Lair zone doorway (if you're comming out). It does occasionally wander, least I think it does. It dropped the Akel's longsword thats stated above.

Most all of the other shrooms are of class warrior. Only rarely do you see one thats not.

Usually, these things are wusses, more than a nuisance than anything. They get trained on me all the time, 3 or 4 at a time, while I'm hunting hoppers. No big deal, I root 'em then deal with 'em in a bit.

However, you'll occasionally (VERY rarely) run into a dark blue to level 56 version of these guys that HT's and casts, i.e. a higher level SK. I took him out, dropped no loot, but dropped me to a bubble and a half of life before he started to run (well, tried to, he was snared hehe). I resisted most of his spells, all his dots, and the dd's he cast that I didn't fully resist were all partially resisted. I think I got lucky... but this tough shroom is probably the one that drops the stated Akel's longsword, unless it's an extremely rare drop off the normals (killed probably 200+ of the stinkin normal ones, no loot at all except those no drop, unstackable shrooms that I destroy).

I once faced one of these at level 40 along with a level 45 druid and we had to run to zone when I attacked it unknowing it was more than a mere mushroom. I have faced easy shrooms and then I faced this one. It rooted me 3 times and was doing several hundred points of damage to me and quickly at that.

Someone should place a warning on this shroom stating "This Mushroom could be hazardous to your health".

I'm a level 28 Ranger, and my group and I went to the Dawnshroud zone from Netherbian Lair to kill Zelnaiks and Lightcrawlers. We were doin fine till out of the blue, on of these just showed up in the middle of the fight, and started nuking us for 300 plus points and hitting for 70 to 100. Two of use died and the other two (me and Wyca) barely made it to the zone even though we were camped only a few feet from the zone, both with less than a hundred HP's left. We thought we were trained or it was some freak occurence, so our group went back in to get corpses. We had no problems and continued killing lightcrawlers, and I decided to pull another Zelniak. Just like the first time, the shroom came and rooted us and as soon as i noticed it i yelled run, but we still died. I could see several shrooms on track, and most were dark blue or black. This one however, was EXTREMELY RED. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

50 Shaman here, decided to solo a few blues over in Dawnshroud. Ran into this rotten thing, had pet up and bearform. Rooted, Ebolt'ed, and sent pet in. Was light blue to me, so I figured it would be an easy kill.
When all of the sudden, zang, I got rooted, no biggie, it wore off fairly quick so I decided to go get a piece of this swine myself.
I make my way to this little baddie, he harm touches me for 360 something, he casts something else, Dingy Danky something, from what I could determine, it hit me for 240 something damage, and lowered my max HP. At this point I backed off, I was down to 2 bubbles, and his root broke. Needless to say, he was pretty unhappy about the ebolt and came right for me. Panic! Luckily zone was right by, so I ended up surviving. Pretty nasty for a light blue.

there are the shrooms that are level 25 to 30, they hit for upto 60 and don't cast. Then there are ones that con dark blue to my 51 elementalist, can HT, fear, ect and hit in the low 100's. make sure you con before you attack, and btw, at 41 I think you where killing three of the level 25 to 30 shrooms.
Some are Higher

Humm I would just say, some of these are blue to lvl 54. It seems to be random so. I have seen 2 differents classes, sk ( took a HT for 391 ) and healer ( who gate and heal ).
Happy Huntin'
