    yesterday I ventured thru that area & got e-bolted by one, no big deal, i can't kill them anyways and always just run, but was dead before
    I could get anywhere and in a all 70's suit. I thought ok, maybe i had unhealed damage from the trip down.
    got looted...self-rezzed, but missing some items& armor,
    re-armored (all 70's) &went back to check corpse, same thing, single e-bolt, dead. re-armored to all high 68-69's, died yet a 3rd time, by one single e-bolt someone with a greater came along and killed everything & I got all my missing stuff.This was not my first trip there, just the 1st time to die 3 times by single e-bolts - WTH?

    Just about to say this :/

    No one remembers about counter slayers >.<.

    Undead gives you 100% damage bonus vs Undead and, anything under Repond gets a 100% damage bonus vs you.

    I am glad this thread came up because I was prepping weapons to battle the Wyvern Renown mini-champ yesterday. I went to the UO Stratics Hunter's guide for Forgotten Servants and there is no data. What sort of slayer affects them?

    Also, are the Fairy dragons affected by a slayer... possibly dragon? Or are they fey?

    What are the weakest resists for all four (Fairy Dragons, Wyverns, Forgotten Servants, and the renown)?

    I plan to get my sampire in there shortly. Navrey and Slasher keep distracting me, but I want to try my hand at earning those nice tinkered legs.

    Thanks!

    i use my archer for the wyvern area spawn. The fairy dragons are vuln to dragon slayer and so is the wyvern. The servants are annoying, but i use my modified mischief maker on them and seems to kill them pretty fast. im assuming the 100 cold dmg is whats good against them. I have yet to have a slayer work on servs tho.


    so get a cold dmg weapon and AI lightning strikes at them and they go down fast, just gotta be sure to take them out one at a time


    *edit* Trying a mage slayer talisman now, will see if it helps
    *EDIT of Edit :p seems mage slayer tali is a no go. so looks like no slayer for em, they arent repond because repond is humanOID not human :p

    I forget if it's fairy dragons or forgotten servant, but one or both of them can cast remove ward. I've popped out of vampiric embrace because of it and have even had protection removed if I'm hunting them with a mage. Just something you may want to keep in mind.

    That's the Fairy Dragons. They're Mystic spell casters.

    Ah good to know. I will bring regs for Vampire Embrace just in case.

    So the best weapon for this spawn would be a 100% cold damage weapon with dragon slayer and other sampire required mods (SSI, DI, HML, HSL)? Sounds like the same weapon for Cold Blood champ spawn.

    Check the hunter's guide, at least for what is there. Fairy dragon's weakest resist is physical. Much lower too.

    Mage Slayer talisman seemed to help on the servants, however, they served it to me more than once especially when they gang up on me.

    Xanlan - can the Mischief Maker still be imbued, or was this stopped with Pub 65?

    I also have trouble with those forgotten servants. I can pick them off one-by-one, but it's slow and risky. I tried a Mage slayer tali last night, and did not see a noticeable improvement. Nor have I noticed any positive effects from a repond slayer. This would indicate that having a conjurer's trinket would NOT be an issue, contary to what was stated above. Either the servants are vulnerable to Repond, or you suffer no slayer-opposite effect from the trinket. Which one is it?

    This is the only mini-champ I still have trouble with in the Abyss, and all because of those servants. Very frustrating.

    I use a !00% Energy or Cold weapon. I can deal damage up to 50-65 point with EoO. Best tactic for now is to lure then one at the time, honor, EoO. But the are hard to kill specially we the can FB ur ass multiple time. Let leave up to the challenge.

    Hit n run.... Or use a necromancy char w/Spirit Speak so you can curse weapon. Don't know any other solution for the spells other then changing PvM or changing imbuing to allow for 100% life leech. And don't wait until you only have only 30 HP's left because they hit you with 2 more spells and an explosion as your running away

    Since the fairy dragons are pos karma (non aggro) I just do these on my necro mage. With dragon slayer, fairy dragons are cake.

    I might be wrong, but the servants seem to have an area damage in addition to their spells. Like a life drain or something. And it can chunk life. Maybe OP got hit by that too.

    As far as mage difficulty though, servants are a step up from changelings. Does take a mana dump to kill them at end.

    The best tactic I have found for running through the spawn on this is to use the spawn against itself. Fairy dragons will attack anything else in the spawn chain. So when a wyvern renowned pops, I try to leave as many forgotten servants around as possible.

    The next round fairy dragons will fight the leftover forgotten servants from the last spawn. Get thee or four forgottens together and they can tear through fairy dragons fast.

    I use a max ssi/di/mana leech/phys dragon slayer composite bow and help the forgottens clear the first wave of fairy dragons. When the wyverns pop i switch to 100% cold damage max ssi/di/mana leech composite and start poping wyverns... this wave goes fast.

    Then EoO the forgottens when they pop and fight them until all the fairy dragons are gone. I dual client a bard mystic with 120 discord/focus/music/mystic. so I switch to the bard and start pulling forgottens into my rising colossus while they are discorded. RC tears through them fast.

    When the renowned pops I pull it with my archer (if I need to), switch to the bard and invis the archer.. cast rc on the wyvern and discord it. go back to the archer and EoO/armor ignore for 200ish damage. The Wyvern renowned drops fast.

    I'll park my chars away from the leftover forgottens and wait until the next round starts.

    I could probably do it just as well with just the archer. But I'm stingy with the imbued 100% cold damage bow... my last repair failed 5 times :( And the bard saves me alot of wear on the bow.

    And yes forgottens tear up an all 70's quick. My bard goes down fast if I forget to move her to a safe location.

    they never turned it off. This is something PvPers have known about for years. It's the reason people with the Staff of Pyros at the gate don't last long.

    I think they meant since it's an undead weapon. If a mage poly's into an orc (repond), the 'orc' will do double damage to the pyros holder.

    Actually, the opposed slayers stuff were turned off sometime in late LBR, then turned back on either with the release of ML, or with the Ophidian event (since the Berzerker's Bardiches were Terethan/Ophidian double slayers, with other random properties).

    I remember this quite well, as my Paladin's favorite weapon up to that point was a double slayer longsword from the Haven new paladin quest, that was Undead/Repond. The two hunting spots closest to my house in Yew (Liches and the Orc Mines) went from being easy to suicidal, with that sword.

    Artifacts haven't been alterable for a while, but it seems that the recipe "craftable artifacts" still are alterable (though you might have to reduce DI to change or add a different property).

    I wish I'd thought of adding SSI to a Dragon's End before they made them non-imbuable. (100% cold, 60% DI, 10% HCI, 20% Fire Resist, Dragon Slayer - could have dropped the majority of the fire resist and added SSI)
