Tome still [u]NOT[/u] N.D.
Skelly pet with her.
She and the undead bridesmaid(s) hate each other, get them close and the cat fight begins (the maid was no match for the Huntress though).
Hit for a high of 137.
Cast: Root, Torbas' Acid Blast, Venom of the Snake, Dooming Darkness, Boil Blood.

Edit: I didn't check and see what 4 bridesmaid's would do against her, or how the Huntress might interact with the Wedding party (hehe) maybe next trip.

Rogue Epic item Update.

Good news for Rogues.

I killed the Dark Huntress last night on the Tower's 5th floor, The wedding, and the Water-Stained Ancient Tome was NOT no-drop. I'll be checking again soon to verify that that one instance was not a bug.

She was up, with no pet, casting wizard spells (DS) on nearby mobs. She was located in the tower near zone in, and I couldn't cast spells or aggro her. What's up with that? Usually she jumps all over me. She conned green to 65, last time I saw her she was light blue.

Same thing for me, while factioning in mistmoore. She cons scowling but doesn't attack, can't cast on her (get the does not take hold message) or attack her. I didn't try an ae, wouldn't care to have to zone with an unkillable mob beating on me.

We killed her just now, but it wasn't easy. My ranger is 44, plus 43 pally, and 43 monk. We're all pretty well off (I wouldn't say twinked, but nice gear nonetheless). She conned dark blue to me at 44, and the pet was aqua.

She was located underneath the bridge into Mistmoore, just outside where the blood wolves and Black Dire is. She has a lot of aquas surrounding her, that tend to add.

She has a damage shield on that is annoying. She hits for 160 a pop sometimes, depending. She is extremely hard to dent, though, her pet is pretty easy to kill. The things you have to look out for is her stunning. She can stun you for about a minute, which almost killed the other party members still fighting, while they were waiting.

She is most definitely underconned compared to the other dark blue mobs around Mistmoore. Some people said she was easy, and perhaps she was for those people, but be careful with her nonetheless.

In our battle, the Pally had to Lay Hands the monk, and even though he did, we still all had 30% life at the end (and next to no mana). After killing her we went invis and she spawns quick! Literally about a minute later. She does not see through invis, though, which is a very good bonus... she didn't drop anything noteworthy... its like she's there to annoy people. Rooting is a good option, to get some downtime to heal, as she's easily rootable. Rooting and running for the exit is a good idea as well.

Just now, a level 60 Beastlord and 60 enc were coming through, and his spells were hitting her for 1000 damage and she still took about 2 minutes to kill. His pet was killed, but they did pretty good work of her.

She's not invincible, but she's no pushover either.

5 of my guildmates & I "raided" Mistmoore last night, looking for the Black Dire wolf for one of our shammies. We killed several of these Dark Huntresses during the couple hours we were there. Every single one of them was dark blue to my 43rd level wizard.
Under Con
# Jan 21 2004 at 2:31 AM Rating: Decent
She is a under con so watch out. Green to me at 54 and I had to run to zone cause she was hitting me for 160+ a shot. Also resisted alot of my spells, when the adds joined in I took off.
Easy
# Jan 09 2004 at 7:54 AM Rating: Default
Well I duno what you guys talking about. Tee-Hee... hard mob? Same ol story in that she was harrassing lowbies and I was plin in zone so decided to destroy her.

Conned Dard blue... Killed her w/ my 47 ranger and 46 cleric 2 boxing... no outside buffs. (So was using Temperance, Endure Magic, and Ranger Buffs) Had at least half my clerics mana left when it was done and over. Cleric has about 170 wis.

I am no twink either and started on a new server - been on for 4 months. No raid gear. A few decent droppables and plenty of crap gear.

Also had 1 add with her.

As far as magic resistant...every spell of my rangers landed. Burning Arrow, Snare and Root.

I resisted almost all her spells w/ about 150mr buffed and my ranger has lil over 2500hp buffed.

Anyways, she dropped nothing.

EDIT:

Oh yah, all that info about what spells she uses and how much she hits for are accurate.

Dark Huntress - Level off?

Ran into this lovely lady yesterday while PL'ing my cleric in Mistmoor with my 56 magician. Normal strategy is just run around with the mage, aggro a crowd of familiars, and bring them back to zone line and let them beat themselves to death on my damage shield. Cleric walks up to the crowd and casts word of pain (PBAE) and takes all xp. Anyway, back to the story.

I ran all the way up to graveyard with 2 familiars in tow, and huntress and pet were at the fence. She /con'd green, so I figured she was just more fodder. Ran back to zone and got ready for the fun. Noticed my health was going down quicker than usual, then noticed she was hitting for a lot more than the familiars. With health going too fast and wanting a better shot at her, I zoned both toons. Healed up, then headed back.

Brought up a 53 air pet, BOIV and Cadeau of flame. Ran back to the graveyard and she was still there. 1 char (820 damage focused) took her pet to 10% health, and my pet finished it off quick. Then it was just her and pet. They went toe to toe for a while, then huntress got off a lucky nuke and was ahead. I started nuking and brought her down. 800 damage nuke dropped her 20% health, so probably 4k hit points.

Wierd thing is, she was green at 56. A level 46 mob should con dark blue to 56. No loot besides about 8 gold.

Light blue at 51: I suspect they've changed the level.

That said, she was the toughest thing I fought on the way in, and she almost managed to kill my 51 Earth pet. Problem is, she lifetaps, so her health was going up while the pet's was going down... I had to nuke her fast, but some stupid green con was beating on me and interrupting the spells.

Corpses poofed before we finished killing the adds, so I guess she doesn't drop anything.
Regarding this zone
# Jul 18 2003 at 5:03 AM Rating: Decent
I will attempt to stick to the facts about her.

She is in the mid-40s in level range. She appears to roam the entirety of the zone, and seems to be KOS to all.

She is a necromancer, and will cast the necro darkness line (DoT and snare) which will make it very difficult to run from her, as well as the Boil Blood and Venom of the Snake line.

She is completely wrong for this zone. A full group of experience-seekers, meaning the people who are intended to be in this zone, would have serious trouble taking her down. Even if they were able, it would consume a significant portion of their resources to do so, and they would probably find themselves dead from her damage over time spells.

I've been playing the game for over 3 years now, and have two characters over 50th (one 65th mage). When I brought my characters through 30th level, I recall the levels being an incredibly slow and difficult experience.

My wife and I have been hunting here from levels 31 onward. Between her character (Vah Shir Beastlord, from 30th to now 39th), my character (Vah Shir Beastlord, from 31st, to now 40th), and my 2-box (High Elf Cleric, from 30th, to now 39th), we have had little trouble in the zone. However, when the huntress is up the zone becomes nearly unplayable. The zone has enough trouble with trains as it is, with unpredictable pathing, and two castle exits.

My solution, which does not work for everyone mind you, is to relog one of my characters and bring the 65 mage. She is a small challenge, even for him, but I can remove her with reasonable confidence, and the zone becomes playable once again. Then, I relog to our Cleric, and rez (for free, mind you) any lower-level XP'ers who died because SOE decided to put an overpowered mob in a n otherwise excellent XP zone.

I would recommend, if you are guilded, to ask a higher level pet-class (Necromancer, Magician, or Beastlord) to come and dispatch her for you. If not, then I would recommend sending someone to the Plane of Knowledge and asking a higher level character for their help. It might be a while before you get some help, but otherwise, you're gonne be zoning out every couple of minutes.

Mistmoore castle, with our group, resulted in incredible experience from 30-35 in the graveyard area, and from 35-39 pulling mobs from under the castle area (we call it the pit), and the front door area.

We averaged 1-2 ppk (percent-per-kill) throughout all the camps. Once my beastlord hit 39th, the mobs became even easier with my new pet. Once we had 2 Beastlords at 39th, we found we could tear through the mobs like butter. The key to pulling, I found, is to use the Cleric's Lull / Pacify line of spells to keep the pulls to one or two mobs for breaking the camp initially. Once that happens, just keep the spawns broken and you're golden.

Went to MM recently and this mob was spawned near the maid/butler. I had become used to my pet at this point chewing thru mobs with ease (56 necro), and was just exploring a bit.
To make a lond story short, she aggroed me, attemped screaming terror on me, aggroing my pet. Because of a small "feature", pets will always kill a mob before turning to the mob's pet if both are in melee range - the Huntress' pet was never touched. And the huntress herself was down to 60% as my pet died.
Way underconned, very tough mob.

Castle Mistmoore. 24/06/03

Guess who we bumped into? Ah, yes! The Dark Huntress! The first time we met her we took her down. The second time we met her, we nearly took her down but we were fighting so close to the zone line it was just easier to zone. Then we discussed it and as the zone was completely empty apart from ourselves, fighting her all of the time wasn't our idea of fun. So we went to PAW again.

If they made sure she isn't spawning at the zone-in every 5 minutes maybe the zone would be a bit more popular. We just med up - go in - get aggroed by her and that's it. It's a one mob zone and frankly she isn't worth the hassle. OK we could be higher level and will be if we return but by then most of the mobs will have turned green con so it makes little sense.

For the record:
35 Wizzy
34 Pally
30 Ranger
32 Druid
32 Beastlord
30 Bard

looking at the pic i see something human, while i see her ingame as a willsapper cartoon. Still have to get even with her, for the moment it's Dark Huntress 1 VS Senyene 0.Not sure what class she is the 2 other occasions i had too many adds and evac was best i could do not to let her get further ahead in the score.
Killed her today
# Mar 28 2003 at 1:08 PM Rating: Decent
Killed her today. She was close to the tower before Torture Room. She did not despawn or anything. She could not see through Improved Invis. Green to 65. Had a pet I rooted. She has approx. 5350HPs. She is a necromancer and looks like a vampire. Casted Snake of Venom on me if I remember correct. Was an easy fight but she can become tough for lvl 30s hunting there. Loot was nothing. No money either.
lvl 50?

we found the dark hunter on kd yesterday and she conned blue to me at lvl 42, non the less she was the taffest blue mob i´ve ever seen :-(
RE: lvl 50?
# Apr 10 2003 at 9:18 AM Rating: Decent
Yup...same here. I think that lvl 50 thing may be off a bit here. My guess is that shes closer to 45 or 46 albeit, she is definately an overcon. She hits like a 50 with max hits of 100+ on a fairly well armored Paladin and has beau coup hps. Well into the 5000s like others have said.

And like others have said, shes a waste of time. We've killed her twice already and each shes carried nada.

Back about early 2002 my ranger was camping the Maid and butler for the fang's and she popped and depoped on me several times during that long camp, the one time i was able to con her she conned amiable to him, he's a human tunare ranger seems strange if she's a necro.

Just as everyone else, we found this lady in mistmore though she conned indifferent to my 52 paly. Wasnt about to attack her though, cause she conned blue, but blues with skeleton pets are usually pretty tuff. She must have aggroed another of my part cause we had to fight her, hits darn hard and thank goodness for a wandering monk, lay hands and runes cast by a friend or would have died. Hits in the 100s and has alot of hitpoints. She may cast poison spells too, though all she did was hit me.

I would like to know too. "on the correct faction" lets see is she now on Mayong Mistmoore faction, or is she still wandering around killing mobs?

"Correct faction" could mean anything to the EQ devs IMO

I'm guessing by reading other posts, that since she killed everything else in sight, player or Mob, that now maybe she doesn't? Seems kind of wierd that someone so powerful and in this place would do that..?

Alright, found her today. 1/6/03. She now has a female vampire look. She still dropped zero loot though, not even a copper. Sounds like she isn't quite fixed.

As for faction, she was KOS to me, though she didn't see through invis. My guess, since she was happily having tea with other Mistmoore peeps is that she is on Mistmoore faction now. Not positive though.

Happy hunting

My guild has been to MM alot. We have alot of pallys, so we camp the throne room alot. Then we pull Xicotl to get the hilt. Hard to fit 15+ people in the bedroom. But the last time we went, she was in the Throne room. She of coarse attack us. We had about 13 low 40ish people, and a couple 49lvl pallys. Maybe to many for just one item, but alot of people like to go. She has tons of HP, and a lvl 49 necro pet that was hitting me for 55. Could not get one spell to hit when I was lvl 44 as my necro. Just Lifelap would hit. With a group of 15 40ish people, she took about 2-3 minutes to kill. She didnt kill anyone during the raid there. But here spawn time is very annoying. Each time we killed here, it felt she was back in the throne room in less then 5 minutes. It was not fun hearing are druid saying, Huntress on track. Not again...


Sure drops nothing, not one item or copper.
