    Just fought a couple of renegade changelings in Ishenar (Sonoma). Are these leftovers from an EM event or something new? Twas quite a fight.

    If these were ingenious chest spawn, then where in Sosaria are they found? I have never seen them, and they are quite a bit tougher than say a paragon Balron. The loot was lackluster, about 2800 gold and a bunch of old style armor and weps.

    Very annoyingly from level 7 tmaps in ilsh. I had 3 spawn on me night before last... took forever to kill em. Whats worse it I didn't get anything good from the chest.

    This is the best spawn I ever fought. I'm not sure we might of got a paragon one. It was an awesome battle, it kept on changing. I was trying to track it to see if it was using all of the skills that I had when it copied me but it was hard to tell.

    It used Chiv Spells but I couldn't hear the healing from the bandages and I didn't have Lore to see if it had my exact skills. I'm not even sure what a Changeling's Lore is or looks like.

    But this is exactly what should be placed into the arenas. This thing could run faster than I could. It seemed to cast at the same speeds and they give you the feeling that they have no fear, that they cannot make a mistake. It's the only spawn that makes you feel vulnerable, like an unpredictable player might.

    If you had the top 10 champions in an arena that you could just spawn a Changeling that would morph into anyone of them, I think the arena would be alot of fun and if they could be toned up they can be made impossible where hit points and skills could be increased.

    These guys are so great that I didn't want to kill them, I wanted to go get other templates and see how accurate they were but because of it's speed, I spent most of my time running/hiding and healing.

    These are my sentiments too. I really had to think to outsmart them. Now that I have a strategy, I sure wish I knew where to find em spawning naturally. The reason for the post originally was that the changelings were not labeled with the treasure guardian tag. Perhaps I am just assuming that they would have carried this tag if they were leftovers from a treasure hunt.

    They are not 'guardians' only, but also spawn after the initial spawn. Only monsters at the initial spawn are guardians - and you have to kill them before you can loot the chest.

    Most prob, someone just lured away the renegade from the chest and continued to loot.
