do the Guards from the towns that loose give loot?

    i stumbled onto a town that the Bane forces have taken over and it is FULL of those big guards.

    i spent some time killing them and noticed that none of them where dropping the Defiler (katana)

    i was wondering if i was just having a really crappy roll of the RNG or if the Guards from the towns that loose just dont spawn with the Defilers on them?

    guess the question is has anyone gotten one off a town that has lost so far, or has anyone tryed besides me?

    a guild mate said he killed them for a hour one night and must killed like 30 of them and didnt get anything.

    so thats 2 of us that havnt.
    but then the drop rate on the katana's seems to get hot then cool off.
    so maybe we both just hit a bad RNG or something.

    cause i find it difficult to think that they would be different spawning guards.

    anyone?

    I'm pretty sure I got one on Origin, after the first wave loss, after killing two. No official documentation though.

    You can get the Defiler off the guards in the towns that have been taken over. I farmed them for a couple days, then something changed. At one point I had killed 110 solo, and not one. Guildmates were still getting them though. I have not been back in a week or more, but I have been in vent while guildies did get them, recently. :) good luck hunting.

    the reason i ask is i was on origin with a guild and we had a big party going and we pulled like 6 or so in a hour.

    and then we where on LA doing a town that had lost and i know that there was 2 of us on at different times and we each clocked in a hour each and not a sniff.

    so i started thinking that maybe they where not dropping on the towns that lost.

    ill go do it again for another hour or so and report back

    On Lake Austin, we've only had one city lost - Skara.

    I got a defiler on the first guard I killed there, not even knowing about the invasion there until seeing the victory for the bane notice.

    So, yes, they do drop on the guards in the lost cities.

    I dont see why they wouldn't drop any loot if the city was lost. It's all about the RNG. Guess most shards didn't lose their cities to find out :(

    The guards in lost cities respawn. I killed probably 20 or 30 or so and gotten 5 defilers. But the way of them dropping is like this...

    1st kill - Got the 1st defiler
    2nd kill - Got the 2nd one
    3rd-15th kill - Nada
    16th kill - Got the 3rd one.
    17th kill - nada
    18th kill - Got the 4th
    19th-29th - nada
    30th -Got the 5th one.

    I got very bored onSonoma one night after finishing solo chaining 3 fire spawns so I decided to hit the towns... thats the results for my little pvm adventure.

    The RNG is jacked up if you ask me.

    I have been getting 1-2 defilers per day from the guards in Skara on LA. Sometimes it is slow and sometimes it is not.

    damn thats the RNG gods LOVE you.

    ive killed easilly 50 Guards on LA solo and have yet to see my 1st one.

    but on origin and sonoma while killing guards AND the side spawn on the town under active attack ive gotten the katanas.

    hence the reason i was asking if the ones in the towns that lost to the Bane kick them out or not.

    guess ill put the nose to the grind stone and see what i can get.

    Keep in mind that I am using a sampire (stoned off ss and replaced with healing)with a ton of bane loyalty (so I dont't get mobbed). I use a demon slayer hatchet (so I can spam AI), with di, ssi30, hml, hll. With this set up i can dipatch the guards within 3-5 minutes.

    If I have a guildy with me they will disco and have a GD with them. I switch to a demon slayer dbl axe and spam dbl strike for 200-250 per hit. we can take down a guard in less than 2 minutes.

    Sell it on vendor...

    But again the guards in cities they are already lost can drop the defilers no problem. And if you are aiming to get the katana its much easier to wait till a city is gone. That way you dont have to worry about the spawns.

    Soloing with my gargoyle throwing sampire takes about 90 seconds to 120 seconds a kill.

    You know, the old adage is play the game and care later ... ;P the more you want something in UO the more frustrated you'll get if the RNG is the deciding factor. Have any secondary reasons to fight bane? To get loyalty points up, or to train a char up? ;P Playing with a group takes off a lot of the stress, as does the variation and constant change of the lesser spawn.

    nope.

    this is pure farming.

    i did the old 'kill the bane for queen and country' thing on my home shard.
    now i was just going to a bunch of other shards to get one on each shard for my swordsman i have scattered around.

    and i had noticed it was taking a lot longer in the towns that had guards only (the bane had won) and was wondering if anyone had recieved a Defiler or if it was a lost cause to try to get them there.
