NOTE: This zone and the East Commonlands zone were revamped and merged into one zone: Commonlands.

The western portion of the Commonlands is more dangerous than the east, having slightly higher level roaming animals, orcs, and occasional hill giants.
The area has suffered from werewolf outbreaks, so adventurers are advised to keep an eye over their shoulders.

when hailed they attack and say 'Hey! Who You? You not belong here! You die!!' followed by the traditional guard spam about ruining your own lands, you insulting norrath, and its time for you to die. green to 62 rogue. 1 dropped cutthroat ring and cutthroat golden tooth.. allies maybe? also had no faction at all. forgot to add that they spawn at the spots marked 'Dark Elves' on the map, near kith zone (only that one)

Task is bugged as of June 15th, 05. GM confirmed. You can get to the last stage of the task, then it freezes up and Marnek is unable to be attacked.

Will update if I hear any change on this situation.
One of the Zanivars Bandits

One of the Zanivars Bandits are a group of 5 mobs located in the furthest NW-most camp that used to be inhabited by Dark Elves for a short period. Hailing them gets you the text:

You say, 'Hail, One of Zanivars Bandits'

One of Zanivars Bandits says 'What'r you do'n here whelp? Come for a [share] of da coin, no?'

You say, 'what share'

One of Zanivars Bandits says 'Aye, Zanivar is paying us a duke's ransom to recover some [map] from the crypt of Befallen. If yer gonna help us find the thing, I can throw a few copper yer way. Don't expect an equal cut though. I found this job before you did.'

You say, 'what map'

One of Zanivars Bandits says 'He didn't say much other than that we looking fer a map o' some hidden caverns below Norrath. Says they've been buried below ground for thousands of years, a whole kingdom of stone, if yer' believe that. . . Well he's da one with the money so we gots ta listen to him.'
Nothing after that on a reply from any obvious phrases I could think of, but I'm thinking there might be a new mob in Befallen that drops a map?
RE: One of the Zanivars Bandits

Actually there are 6 total. 2 trolls, 2 ogres, and 2 dark elves. There are 4 right in the camp (2 ogres, 1 dark elf, and 1 troll); a dark elf woman off to the right of the camp by a tree there; and the other troll is behind the camp a smidge on the hill.

I hailed him today, and I he responded with what those NPC's generally related to OoW tasks would say: "I'm afraid I can't speak right now, <name>. I'm waiting for someone very important to arrive." I'm guessing he's on of the layover stops on a task, whether it be beginning, halfway, or end.
About Kizdean Gix
# Aug 27 2004 at 10:25 PM Rating: Decent
Some interesting facts about Kizdean Gix:

"utalk adarev otcin" are the words used to start the quest with him for the Thex Mallet. If you reverse each word and keep it in the same order it becomes
"klatu verada nicto" ... This phrase was FIRST used in the 1951 movie, " The Day the earth stood still " starring Michael Rennie and Patricia Neal. These words were spoken to a 20' tall robot named Gort, to avert him from destroying the world.

This Phrase was also later used in the movie " Army of Darkness ", Starring ( the chin himself ) Bruce Campbell. This phrase was Supposed to be used to allow the Necronomicon ( the Book of the Dead ) to be removed from it's cradle in a Dark Cemetary. Alas, the phrase wsa bungled and not spoken with Every little syllable correct, thus unleashing the army of darkness.

Just a wee bit of trivia for your Day. :-)
Killing Kizdean Gix at NIght

I was jsut reading the posts, and I know they are dated, but I can't believe there are no specific's on the cause and effect of killing Kizdean Gix. Of course old Kiz wanders and kills, but Zytl is much worse, especially to low and mid-level players who tend to wander into this zone to explore and get exp. Kizdean usually hangs out behind the shops near the toll booth by a tree. Leave him alone and give wide berth and you are OK. Kill him at night and you start a chain reaction that is terrible to the little guys. Night Killing of Kizdean spawns Dragoon Zytl from the Lake west of Kizdeans' location, over by the Wizzy tower. Gix ememerges just west of the shops/huts there and heads out, often in the direction of BeFallen slatering everything in his path til he is killed. If you think it's fun to slaughter other players, go ahead and Kill Kiz at night, but all be forwarned. And Hey, mid levels travel with care in W. Commons at night.
RE: Killing Kizdean Gix at NIght
# Apr 02 2004 at 2:02 PM Rating: Decent
Actually it doesn't matter whether it is night or day, Zytl just doesn't spawn EVERY time that Gix is killed. The wife just killed him a few times and it is only 11am game time and Zytl spawned.

Also, Gix does not wander. He will spawn behind the merchant huts by the Tollbooth where the guards are. Unless he is dragged away by players (which does happen occasionally) he will simply stand there. When I have been in the zone farming spiders and bears and cats and such, I have seen him stand unmolested in the same spot for hours. Of course now that there are more people in the area due to the GM events and even the Wayfarer's camp in EC he may get pulled away a bit more often.

As for Zytl spawning at the lake and heading to Befallen, you have it backwards. He spawns outside of Befallen and wanders and commonly ends up near the Barbs because of the mobs around for him to chase (much in the way that the guards in EC are often drawn away killing one mob then another one that is NOW in thier aggro range). This is easily shown by simply pulling Gix to the area outside of Befallen. If Zytl is indeed going to spawn that time he will be within sight with his pet:-)

Nightfall Giant

Today I ported into WC, and as I always do, looked up on track, and saw a new one to me in this zone, a Nightfall Giant... He conned red to me, as a 34 Druid, so of course I decided to try him out. Well, he didn't resist my snare, so I kited him and laid on the DOT's. It didn't seem to take any longer to drop him than any of the red HG's in Rathe Mts. so he must be around level 37-38. I looted a Nightfall Giant's Head off him. It is LORE, but not NO DROP. Anyone have any ideas what this might be for, and is he going to be a regular visitor in this zone?

GM Event
# Sep 23 2003 at 10:02 AM Rating: Decent
I'm not sure if this GM event was all for all servers, but the sky in WC turned blood red yesterday and there were werewolves running EVERYWHERE. Minor ones, Lesser ones, Regular ones, and Greater ones. They all dropped their usual paws and pelts, but a lot of class-specific no drops were popping up all over the place as well. Good stuff for my newb wizzy, but nothing useful for my 53 beastie. The Werewolf Overlord was level 54 and a beast to take down. Here are the links of the stuff I kept.

# Sep 22 2003 at 10:26 PM Rating: Default
Ok not that this will matter at all anymore. but a GM event happened today. Blood fang spawned. Bloodfang was a lvl 65 werewolf with wicked regen took about 50 lvl 65ers about 15 mineuts to kill mostly cause it was GM controlled. Droppes 2 combine longswords (lol), and a manastone. I was there and did minimal amount of help and almost died on one AE that he did. very fun. Oh! and this GM event happened on Drinal.
Gix and Zytl
# Feb 14 2003 at 11:42 AM Rating: Decent
Of course if you have hunted in WC for a decent amount of time you know good old Kizdean Gix, and possibly Dragoon Zytl also. Kizdean haunted the life of my young Human Paladin. I was at the Toll Booth medding in protection of the gaurds when all of a sudden Kizdean Gix is beating on me. The first time it happened I went to the guards thinking since he is a Dark Elf the gaurds will attack. Of course while I am dying right in front of them they stand by and watch. So the next time he finds me I am a bit higher in level and survive the HT. I am almost to the EC zone when lo and behold I am feared and run the other way. Then he continues his beatings until I lay dead in front of him. Soon after I was a higher level and went back for my revenge. I go back and he cons blue. I'm at full health/mana so I'm happy thinking I will get my revenge. WRONG. This was when I realized the severity of his undercon. So I went back AGAIN later in life and he conned green. Time for Gix to die. I finally defeated Kizdean and was feeling extremely happy. And minutes later my happiness ended. On my way to Highkeep, Dragoon Zytl decides to wipe me out. And he did so....quickly. Then again I went back to WC at level 35 and had a close fight with Zytl. It took everything I had including a LoH to defeat him, but he went down. Now I feel much better about WC having conquered my enemies, and now all I have to worry about is the Spectres that wiped me out during my time in Oasis, I am on my way there now, DEATH TO THE SPECTRES!!

Both of them are cake. Zytl i just solo'd for 1% xp, not bad at lvl 41(camping druids and pulling the dwarfs and guards, good xp) and i stuck pet(since i was at 31% hp)Pet took down to 50% and my warder was at 96% so i stepped in and ate Zytl, procced 3 times and he went down. His pet is very CR, tried nuking it to kill it for fun but then i got bored so i melee'd it. DEAD

# Apr 04 2004 at 11:36 PM Rating: Decent
Both of them may have been cake to you then, and they certainly are to me now. However, hunting at the toll booth insinuates that you are in the 12-18 range, at which time both of these mobs would be far from "cake". As a wise man once said, think before you post.

DE camps and bear pelts
# Apr 17 2002 at 3:55 PM Rating: Decent
Ok, I've been to WC lots of times, seen these empty campes with the dark elf symbol on them, but never see any dark elfs myself. The camps are allways empty and I never see anyone camping them. As for high quality bear pelts, how often does this stuff drop? Been in wc all morning and only looted two! I've killed every single type of bear I ran into.
RE: DE camps and bear pelts
# Jun 24 2002 at 12:44 PM Rating: Decent
DE.... those can get camped quite often, send out a camp check. Good chance someone had just wiped them out. There is also K. Gix who wanders the desert edge near the druid ring. There is also the possiblity the camp might have gotten emptied by the high mucky mucks (programmers), I have heard of that in some zones, temporarily at least, though I do beleive they are supposed to be there as of May. Ask around, others might know something.

HQ bear pelts.... rather uncommon. I killed hundreds of bears and only got about 4 HQ If you are really in a bind and have up to 25 pp go to east commonlands, someone is always selling at least one. Personally I got most from the full grown Kodiaks

Eye of Sumons

HAs anyone else seen this creature? It's a big blue/green eyeball that floats around. I'm a 17 and it cons green to me.
RE: Eye of Sumons
# May 23 2002 at 7:15 PM Rating: Default
What happened is that a player character
named "Sumons" cast the spell "Eye of Zomm"

Creates basically a one-hit point non-aggro-ing
"thing" that the caster can see through.

If the player had been named "Drdf" you would
have seen an "Eye of Drdf" ... enjoy.
RE: Eye of Sumons

I believe the eye of sumons is a spell for a caster i dont know what kind. It lets the caster see whatever it see's so it is not a monster to fight
