    Where do I find turkeys?

    Do I need to speak with Wilson at the zoo?

    What do you ask Wilson?

    You can find turkeys in any forest, Wonder around the area at Britain Moongate.

    You should try to go over it again, because you seem to have missed out on some of the details.

    But basically they spawn pretty much all over Trammel and Felucca. I saw two in the forest between Britain moongate and the hedge maze.
    I logged into my house on Ocllo island (Felucca) and found one just outside.

    And no - you don't have to visit the ornithologist (Moonglow Zoo dude) to 'see' them. Once you have killed the turkey - and good luck with that - you might wanna go see him though.

    Say "Brush" and he will give you a yellow colored brush that you need to use when you find the turkey nest. The brush will tell you which eggs need to be destroyed as not all eggs are to be destroyed. He doesn't say how the brush does this so I can only assume that one needs to perform the "double click brush, then target egg" action. I have not tried it as I understand that a group fighting the turkey is better than going it alone.

    Anyway, this is what I could discern while speaking with Wilson so far.

    Ok, Im officially confused! :)

    One thread going implies summons and/or taming are ok to use. Another thread implies that they are not.

    Anyone have an idea of whats up, which is correct?

    what do u do with the nest when u find it
     
  14. riohnyx

    riohnyx Guest

    Well, you can use summons/pets, but the turkeys retaliate by teleporting you to them when your pet/summon attacks it. You end up dying a lot that way.

    Best to use against them is a bard. Provoking turkey vs. turkey and then disco. Have a mage stand back and pop them with Chain lightning and ebolts.

    Double click all the giant turkey eggs and break them and loot the bag you find with it.

    just to be a little more explicit.

    My nest had three giant eggs in it, no regulars. One by one I dble clicked the eggs to make them disappear. Well, I used to swords of prosp and targeted the eggs actually. When the third egg was destroyed the whole nest went *poof* and there was a brown bag that was only a slightly different color than the ground where the nest had been.

    It had all the loot. I had no pack drops except for the map at all.
     
  17. I soloed one on test, 777 arrows and 45 minutes later, he dropped. A regular 120 archer with bushido skills and a horselord.....oh and I used the corner of someones house to keep him still.

    The pack is always there whether you collapse the nest or not.

    and you can kill these on fighters, it just takes forever and is boring.

    I just solo one with archer almost 500 arrows . I moved in a small circle . circle about big tower size , was open terrain so no line of sight issues . Didnt get teleported to turkey once and only hade to use bandage to keep me up . Didnt die once and never was close .. On my gorgyle with magery and mysticism i die minimum 4 times per turkey . Not sure if only lucky but thought i post this so others might try and give feedback if it went well for them to .

    to the west of Trinsic is just rife with them. Go South from the moon gate then east along the river on the south side.

    I've got 115 Music, Provo and Peace but the game says I have "no chance" of peacing or provoing these birds. I'm using an exceptional instrument but I don't have a bird slayer talisman. Is my only hope 120 bard skills?

    Probably...

    I had 120 music and Provo, and it was letting me attempt to provo them, but never succeeded until I had an exceptional instrument (And even then it took a dozen tries).I wonder if anyone's got one of them over to the lich woods south of Yew, and provoed lots of liches onto one.

    While they can probably 1-2 hit a lich, the liches do cold damage, and there are a LOT of liches down there.

    Barding difficulty for the turkeys is 160. So at 115 provo, 115 music and exceptional instrument, you have just about the absolute minimal required to bard it. Unless the barding formula was changed.

    Could likely be just due to variances between mobs' stats, try a few other turkeys to see if you can get a weaker one. Or you can also try to discord it first.

    From what I can tell so far, discorded by a 120 disco bard will lower its barding difficulty to 155.

    Btw, if you can, it's worth it to get them bard skills to 120.

    Even with 120 provoke, I discord them before provoking so that my success chance is higher.

    they are attained by dropping the bird you get from destroying eggs in the nest on a butcher

    the harvester stats are spell channeling with no cast penalty
    ill try to get a pic up

    Took me 1.5 hours and bout 1000 arrows with archer i'm 115 arch 110 tact and anat with chivalry and using Mischief Maker. I tried some other bows but that one seemed to be the best out of what I had on me.BTW The bird Slayer Talisman did not seem to work on it.

    Anyway decided to use other means to kill them

    Am I doing something wrong or are Plucked turkeys just a random drop because I've done bout 10 nest so far destroying the eggs and I haven't gotten one.
    I have gotten 2 cornacopias.
     
  35. They're not common, so it takes a while, keep destroying the eggs, that's where they come from.

    That's what we've been doing. Pity the house we've been using is IDOC and about to drop!

    My tamer got creamed doing this, because of the whole teleporting thing. The bugger pulled me back from about three screens away, at which point I decided to get my archer. We've been using archers and mages, which work just fine, as long as the mages don't use summons.

    Pretty sure using the corner of a house to trap a non-casting monsters is an exploit. *shrugs*

    This seems to come up every event, when people use boats to fight things or other methods to trap monsters. Kind of defeats the purpose doesn't it? Or is the purpose just to get the same items everyone is going to end up with anyways, who cares about a challenge...

    So it's game mechanics, right? Or do you stand there ready to be hit by a greater dragon, since running away is an exploit?

    They fixed it already, turkeys teleport around to get past the corners. House edges are known for ages, therefore it shouldn't be a prob for devs...

    Dude I didn't make up the rules, that's just how it is. The idea is if you prevent a mob from being able to get to you to attack you then you are exploiting. I don't think this counts for magic casting monsters but if the only magic the turkey casts is EQ then it might count for them.

    BTW just because you are using "game mechanics" doesn't mean it's legal. You could use "game mechanics" to get a bugged quiver, and look how they crack down on people with those, even if they weren't to bug them in the first place. "The game will let me do it so it must be legal" defense shouldn't be believed by anyone.

    We don't talk about bugged quivers, we talk about some mob being very powerfull but not smart enough to round a house edge. I don't call that an exploit, but poor code. They want to present a challenge, but can't get the most obvious things done (again: house edges are known for ages). And now another bad code is revealed: you can simply refresh a nest and do it I don't know how many times! Maybe the trouble within EA detained proper coding in this case (the Halloween Thing was very well done); but these probs make me remember the bad times of this game, which I hoped we had passed.

    playing a "sandbox" games puts the onus squarely on us to make good choices. It also puts the onus on our design team to "help" us make those good choices.

    I'm glad to see these fixes put in place so quickly. Someone else just posted about something I hadn't heard before. I think I'll waste a lil bit o time to see if it is repeatable today.

    I don't think so, I used this technique and its very good. Its like shooting a gun from behind a wall. Its a way of protecting yourself, I think saying its an 'exploit' is too far. It's the turkeys fault for being stupid and not noticing it can walk around the corner.

    I wanna know more about map frags. Are they rare now? Does putting three pieces together lead to a "better" nest?

    Are they still spawning?

    Remember when people would make a wall out of crates/chests etc to tame WW and dragons? that was changed with line of sight because that was a bug/exploit, just like using corner of a house to fight. Sorry but thats just how it works so use some skill and kill the turkey like me and just walk around stayin out of its hard hitting range. Pally archer takes em out pretty easily, especially when you have a bard with ya to discord. And its not meant to be a soloable fight, at least not an easy one. yes bards can kill one with another but thats the power of bards. Top 20 get maps or frags so its geared to group efforts, hit the hotspots of your shard if you dont have guildies to party with. Get a strike force built and cleanse our forests.

    I don't know about you but the turkeys that I have fought have cast something on me that takes almost half my life away. Sounds to me like it's ok to fight from cover.
     
  50. This is why, in my opinion, it's OK.

    This way, you can't set up the combat, walk away and go watch TV and fix a sandwich and come back to find the monster dead. It has a ranged attack, that is pretty devestating. There IS risk, even if it cant hit you with melee.
