Magancia Ghostly Spawn

    Hi I have a question; is it possible to defeat all the different types of souls in Magancia? Like in the Ophidian invasions where players cleared sectors of mobs before moving onto the next zone, eventually clearing the affected areas ? x

    Not as far as I know ... admittedly, I've only gone hunting one type of spirit at a time and not very frequently at that, but back when people were using it more regularly, I would think some shard would have cleared it by accident if it were possible.

    The really mean spirits seem to come in "blooms" if you ask me... you can seem to beat them back for a bit... but then all the sudden it's like they are Everywhere again and I have to retreat almost to the moongate again.

    There is some really fascinating coding with those spirits ... they have elaborate death scenes and the aggressive ones have a vicious "swarming" AI that makes them run in from far away to the aid of their kin. I worry we may rue the day we asked the devs to start beefing up AI in the game :)

    Their magic damage sucks (probably low eval). But their physical damage is pretty strong for such a weak mob...The swarming makes them even more dangerous.

    I wish the corrupted souls didn't spawn so heavy. Kinda overwhelming when you one and would like to get your threads. :?/

    They can be mowed down solo with the right template and tactics. Note that they are very weak against poison damage (wrath of the dryad is a good weapon if you have a macer). You also need to use the battlefield ... don't let them gangpile you by standing in one spot ... move around, pick them off from the edges.

    :)

    I really liked that about the last event cycle - one could sense the prototyping going on in each episode, it really built up an appetite to see what ways they could be combined and used.

    I take my archer with a fire bow, knocks them flat. As for the Spirit Speak and Exorcism ones, Hubby brings his necro and I bring my archer. We cover each others butt's. Fun stuff. But still gotta watch like Maplestone said, move around a lot and drag them to safer areas. Stand still and your toast.

    Interesting stuff, I've been rewarded with a fair few threads now from releasing the spirits...*Freedom!* heh, wish the threads would stack more consistentley though, I wonder how we'll rid Magancia of it's ghostly inhabitants then, perhaps they'll act as a permanent reminder against being greedy : P

    There are actually 10 distinct versions of each type of thread (there's a fortune cookie aspect to them).
