<h1 style="text-align: center;">Blackrock & Red Spawn</h1> Its seems we have a new evil spawing in the Lost Lands. Blackrock Elementals along with Nether Votexs and Toxic Ooze are spawning where these strange Black Crystals are spawning. One location was a grasses valley far to the east of Delucia, and another in be found in the desert below the lighthouse. <table width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <a target="_blank" href=http://images.stratics.com/uoss/newspics/sonoma/sn-Blackrock-KM.jpg></a> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> These Elementals have proved to be almost impossible to kill due to the surpport of the ooze and vortexs, all give off a dangerous aura when you are close to them, causing damage to your health. Even when invis or in stealth if they come close to your location you receive damage and worse are revealed to all the spawn. <table width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> As human you need zero skill in mining to dig up a piece of blackrock, [I am not sure if an elf can mine the blackrock], just fine a place where the crystal is and start to dig, if you see a message "You can't seem to find any blackrock..." Keep digging till you see "You unearth a large piece of blackrock! You carefully place it in your backpack." If you do not see that first message then move on to another location. <table width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <a target="_blank" href=http://images.stratics.com/uoss/newspics/sonoma/sn-Blackrock-KM4.jpg></a> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> I managed to get one piece this morning after running for my live several times, and have to call for help after dieing on a little knob of grass when I could not hide due to the aura damage. I used that time while waiting for my rescue to scout the area and get an idea where i wanted to dig when I could get back. <table width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> Be sure to carry a few shovels with you as you burn up several trying to get a piece of Blackrock. </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Good hunting folks <span style="font-weight: bold;">*smiles*</span> and good luck!
