Mysterious Stranger found [pictures!]

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Lord Drakelord, Jun 22, 2008.

  1. Found one bottom of Despise! Watch out with the supers on it!!! Dreads do better as they will remain HAPPY during the battle, Supers will not will go wild if you do not feed feed feed!!!

    Pictures coming!

    sorry was busy chatting with a returning player that been gone for 8th yrs, working on those pictures now!

    Was a big battle, had two supers at first but owners found the pets were turn unhappy very quick and had HIGH concerns about them going wild, Dread horses remained wonderful happy thru the entire LONG battle. I Got a Blue chest and some of the gems, they are different sizes.

    if so, I'm disappointed :(

    Drops a PINK ' A MAGICAL LOCK CHSET' Apparently empty

    And , In Tram at least, a drop rather similar to the Champ spawn, with gold scattering around, AND hundreds of individual gems.

    Maybe?? in Fel he drops Scrolls...wouldnt know

    As he dies, he area deadly poisons, nothing a bandy wont cure.

    Just before death he tries all sorts of weird magic....I did see a ghostly ancient wrym and was filled with awe and fear, but it was just an illusion

    Has a Dark Poison special??, and a Whoof effect similar to LIGHT Demons when they died in Mag.

    Any idea what the chest is for ??

    Actually, i'm sure that your description of the loot is wrong now, but I can't say anything for sure until I fight one for myself.. don't want to let any secrets out. Anyway, i'd suggest taking a close look at those gems, or letting a rares fan look at them.. you might be suprised.

    More importantly, where exactly was this creature located? be as specific as possible.

    whats with the ambiguity.. might as well just say it ;) some of the gems are larger and of different shape than the normal gems u get.. i didnt happen to get any of the larger diamonds, but if they exist from these drops then the older larger diamonds would cease to be rare

    Here a few more Gems... the first row are the original ones. Below are the Gems from the stranger... The Amber uses the same graphic but reads as "piece of Amber" when moused over.

    Nexia Guest

    The stranger dropped only amber, citrines, ametysts and rubies. I think the diamonds are safe...
     
  12. SilentFoxXy

    SilentFoxXy Guest

    I humbly apologize, I have just matched up Citrines, and amethysts, and yes, the Stranger drops are @ double the size.

    Damn, I only grabbed a few....

    BUT- They do drop in some multitude, plenty for everyone

    Anyone got an insight as to what the chest does??

    first thing I did with the chest was toss in a Cloak of Corruption and a Thread of Life... nothing happened :)
     
  15. a few notes on the battle

    1. supers were very unhappy in this fight leave them home
    2. Dreads remained wonderful happy thru the entire battle
    3. flame attack from the stranger hurts, in others words if you cannot stand the heat GET out of frying pan!
    4. if your pet refuses to come to you use the pet ball to get it out of fire!
    5. VET like crazy!
    6. mages can cast on it as it was far to busy with all the pets on it to chase one lone mage.

    Ash Guest

    do you have a Thread of Fate to toss in with those two?

    Odds are even if the box does effect the items will still require words to be spoken..

    Oh. and when the HP gets low they start to chain specials, so be ready.
     
  18. There was no body when it died, we all saw some sort of outline for an AW, then that vanished to be replaced by dropping of gold, gems and the chest.

    Some tried to grab the chest but found for some reason they could not pick it up, but I was able to grab it after a few seconds of trying to get it.

    As for how hard it was, I can say in one word it was a B!!!!!!!! I did not think we ever get any damage on it at first!

    well actually, that's a bit of a fib..... the very first thing I did was put five coins to see if they would magically double :blushing:

    okay, Thread of Life, Thread of Fate and Cloak of Corruption, box being secured.... shut box, open, no change..... shut box, turn box, open, no change.....

    sooo.... what words, do you suppose? should I drag Inu over to my place and have her scream incoherently at it for a while? :D
     
  20. able to find another spawn? i checked a couple of the dungeons and nothing so far...

    this is on legends

    More advice:
    Fire does no damage.
    With 115 magery 115 EI, mind blast did more damage than energy bolts.
    The guy's only spell is dispell, and he does it VERY well. In other words, summons are useless.
    That being said, nature's fury still didn't do much damage.

    The best strategy I've come up with is cross healing warriors, the more the merrier. The archers were pretty brilliant as well. Mages are only good for healing the warriors that are too slow to heal themselves.

    and now I'm curious about the name, too..... I'm pretty sure the one on Legends was named the same as the one pictured up there from Lake Austin (?)

    does the Despise stranger have the same name on every shard?
     
  23. we had one mage casting mind blast like crazy on it, and he also summon earths to attack, with the stranger busy with the pets on it the earth was able to get hits in before it died from the flames around it.

    We just finished ours on Baja. Named the same, same dragon armor, same box, jewls and gold at the end.. no body.

    I started with my greater dragon too..found the same tendancies to get very unhappy very quickly. Switched to Cu's.. pups didn't get unhappy but also didn't do much damage at all. Infact lost health so fast I had to pull em out. Got dread warhorse and coupled with regular nightmare. War horse did well 35-40 per hit, nigthmare 5-10. Went through close to 500 aids.. so bring alot. Switched to dread/fire steed. This was best combo for me.. fire steed did 20 or so per hit. Got a Word of Death on him.. did 450 damage and he hit me back with some fire ball from hell.. did close to 100 damage.

    We had at least 4 dread horses, fire steed, 2 mages and a couple dexers in there. Took us not too long once everyone was there.

    No special artie drop in the pack. Location Despise, tram kinda west of the orge lord island.

    LORD Yalp of Zento, CTDM

    can't lore or bard him.. even being legendary.

    How long does he take to respawn once he is dead? Anyone try the armageddon spell on the pink box? Anyone try using a glass dagger on him?

    on Legends he was already engaged, and because he's red it's probably kinda pointless, but maybe someone could attempt talking to him before he attacks? was just kinda hoping for a little bit of story with this part of it, y'know?

    Are you on Cats? That sounds an awful lot like what I just did (I was the mage in that scenario).

    It occurs to me that Myxkion sounds kinda Wispish.

    Watched a battle on Pacific for about 35 minutes. Many deaths and the stranger still lived. Although, he was down to about 30% health when I left.

    He had the ability to auto teleport and target. Lots of immediate dispel. A couple of dismounts, and ate a Greater Dragon in under 7 seconds. (I'm not kidding, it was more like 5.) The message "Terror slices into your very being..." led to me being frozen on the screen for several seconds. He could not be lored.

    Pacific one was defeated. A little bit of gold lots of gems, and a blue magical lockbox with nothing in it. I was meleeing it with an all 70 resist suit takeing 110-120 near the end. When he cursed me he was doing around 140 damage a hit. So if you can avoid it melee is not the way to go.

    Just found out, the one Napa was already defeated.
     

  49. well I went around and around looking, almost had my butt handed to me a few places, but no stranger to be seen. Maybe there is a spawning time, much like the VGs? Not sure what to expect, except to keep looking and maybe get lucky like I did today.
