    Yes they are here all right.

    Without spoiling things for anyone I think I can safely add: Brace yourself before attacking one.

    Yep very strong !

    I tried to kill one last week on the test shard.
    I duplicated my chars, went find a turkey and... died

    So I tried with the same chars but with max stats and the best gear i could produce (and on the test shard it's a lot) and ... died rolleyes:

    Seems that it's not to be done solo ...

    Would someone be interested in a hunting party ?
    I'm ingame most evenings :)

    About six were around my house earlier. I thought I could make the the old days and shoot them from my doorstep but they teleported me to them right away.

    I finaly killed one all alone without dying. . It still took me about a hour.



    For me the best tactics was to use my bard mage. First i discorded it. Even with 120 Music and Discord it took several tries. After that i just walk it around the house while casting e-bolt on it. I always made sure i was a few steps away. At the start when the turkeys was still pretty fast i kept doing area peace inbetween e-bolts. When it did hit me with his sound attack ,i then area peaced and heal me up first before i started to shoot at it again.



    It can be done alone but i look forward to do this with some small groups. :)

    Went out and lored 15 turkeys. The results are below. I give the range (min and max)and then the average in parentheses.

    Hits: ????
    Stamina: 191-270 (226)
    Mana: 1000 (no variation)
    Strength: 1201-1351 (1266)
    Dex: 191-270 (226)
    Int: 431-559 (497)

    Resists:
    Phys 55-69 (61)
    Fire 70-88 (79)
    Cold 35-45 (40)
    Poison 45-55 (49)
    Energy 45-55 (49)

    Wrestling 101-119,1 (109,3)
    Tactics 100,1-109,1 (104,7)
    Resist 85,7-99,6 (92,8)
    Anatomy 75,1-79,7 (77,4)

    Barding difficulty: 160

    Some people estimate the hits to be around 30.000

    They also come with a large array of special attacks/abilities:
    Bleed
    Dismount
    Lower phys resist on opponent
    Area damage (25-50some damage)
    Slowing down - you are unable to run and casting, swing speed and casting recovery are significantly delayed!
    Owners of attacking pets and summons are teleported to the turkey. This also applies to archers sitting in spots out of reach. (Say - on the other side of a river).

    All in all quite a handful.
