    I don't see them on Ches ... less they were killed. But the Humility steps are screwed up. Can't walk up stairs unless my client is buggy.

    I see them on Origin though. One can be attacked, and it hurts ya bad lol. Not worth it since you can't loot ;p.

    in the 'old days' you could call a GM if you couldn't reach the loot. Better question, how do you kill 'em?

    Since there is fiction that involves the Humility Virtue, and on GL at least there's an EM event scheduled for this Sunday, it's an excellent guess that the blocked off Shrine and the Blackrock Elementals (Virtuebane watching the Shrine) are due to coming events.

    you mean we cannot do nothing with the Blackrock Golems right now ?

    We got to just sit and wait ?

    By the way, I do not think they have anything to do with the Bane Chosen as I have loyalty with them (against the Ophidians) and nonetheless they have attacked me from over the top of the mountains.

    So, they are not with the bane Chosen.

    they are in the mountain... they will be used for an upcoming event (believe sunday) for most shards. No way to access them otherwise.

    Worth noting: I was not able to stand on the portion of the platform containing the ankh and the symbol on GL. Seemed to be blocked a la the throne in Castle British.

    I did, all around it. Access blocked from the top of the stairs coming from the South. and at the narrowing point just north the larger paved area coming from the gate itself. I did not try teleporting. I did try going in and out of war mode in case I was hitting some kind of z axis snag.

    There are quite a few on Atlantic, they're stuck inside the mountain though. Maybe they're stashing them up there for events so they can just pull them to the site instead of going through the trouble of creating them? There have been a couple events on Atlantic that have used these golems, even if they weren't in the same form and name.

    We spent the morning killing Blackrock Golems on Catskills. Looks like one piece of armor is a guaranteed drop on each golem. There are 4 different sets of armor. Good/evil human and good/evil garg. We managed to collect all pieces save one (collected 5 of 6) of each set. I am only assuming they are 6 part because nothing happens when you equip 5 of any set on either race. It seems the last piece of each set was left out of the loot intentionally.

    They do have an exceptional tag and you can imbue them (to 500 intensity). However they are plate/dragon armor and drop with the mage armor property. So that takes up 100 intensity (dang). Plus that extra funk they slap on them seems to take another 40 intensity. And you don't get the resist bonus of GM arms lore so they are exceptional with base resists. I hope the mysterious property (good/evil mana burst) is worth it.

    FYI these are the pieces we didnt get. Please somebody let me know if they got one (and which shard):

    Human evil: missing helm.
    Garg evil: missing arms.
    Human good: missing gloves.
    Garg Good: missing earring.

    Oh and these pieces had to be looted. They did not drop in our packs.

    How did you get to kill them since area spells only marginally hurts them ?

    How could you access their corpses since they are not reachable and gargoyles cannot even reach them flying ?

    Here's a lore of their stats. I have 113.4 Animal Lore after ring and bracelet bonuses so maybe the hitpoints will show up with 120 - not sure there.

    By not using area spells :)

    They were reachable. There seems to be two spawns, one at humility moongate and one in magencia.

    Does killing BlackRock Golems affect one's own loyalty with either the Bane Chosen or the Ophidians ?

    I am asking, because I have a character that has loyalty with the Bane Chosen (i.e. is befriended with them...) and nonetheless, when getting close to these Golems was attacked anyways. Hinting me, that they side with the Ophidians, NOT the Bane Chosen.....

    Or, that they are independent and side with noone ?

    So, does killing them affect any type of loyalty ?

    Thanks.

    Killing them did not affect my loyalty to either side. But keep in mind this was a teaser event and the golems were manually spawned. So they may have not been pluged into the loyalty system.

    Right except most of us have global chat turned off so we don't have to listen to the bull****.
    No worries. Not the first unannounced event.

    I've missed many many myself. I hear dow chemical is developing a minty gel that communicates perfectly to all and filters out all messages you don't want to hear with no complaints. But that is still in R&D. I'd say 6 months to work out all the kinks and 5 years of testing on prisoners. Until then we'll just have to make due with what we have.

    The spawn is gone 24 hours or so later, so this was all for just a few people to get some rare armor? I gave up after spending close to an hour killing one with a group of friends and got a whopping 234 gold and two pieces of crap Garg armor.

    Lucky you.
    There were several at Humility on Cats as well, hence the point of the OP. Lace is in my alliance and actually asked about them. No one knew how to get to them to kill them.
    We also didn't know there were more at Magincia...

    I don't *think* (I could be totally wrong here) that there will be more at some future time. Which is one of the reasons I am questioning the motives of allowing a select few a sneak access to these items as I have seen people trying to sell them as "one of a kind" type things.
    Either way it's pretty unfair.
