Several of these will still be easy prey at level 55 and aggro. Once you hit 56, nothing in Oldton (with the possibility of NMs I've never run into) will aggro you.

There's also a RDM gob that'll aggro to 55 right where you first run into these heading to the SE corner.

Happy mining and whatever else!

Some of these check too weak to me at lvl 54, but one or two pop that still check easy prey. Weird thing about these bombs...some of the EP ones aggro, some do not. I have ran past some of the EP ones, stood in front of them, danced and all and nothing. However, another one sees me and just charges right for me. Not sure what causes some to aggro and some not to. Maybe the ones that do are a lvl or two higher than the other EPs that don't aggro. *shrugs* Strange


Usually, the ones that are Easy Prey with Low Defense and Evasion don't aggro.

But if they have just Low Defense, but normal evasion, there is a higher chance they will aggro. Same goes for Low Defense, High Evasion. (THF type mobs.)

EP mobs come in a range of levels, the ones that don't aggro to you are probably on the low end of that Level Range so that if you hit 55 they would be Too Weak to you.

I have the same problem with them and the Moblins. Don't want the Moblins to aggro you though, you'll get the entire place on you in no time.

I just "Fire Up" on these things: Enfire, Barfire, Blaze spikes, cast Fire 2/1, beat on it until it's dead. Haven't had one blow up on me though.

Walking through Oldton with a 34 DRK and a 50 BRD, we came across on of these. Since it conned IT to the DRK and EP to the BRD I thought me may as well kill it on account of aggro. Shortly after telling the DRK to back off in case the bomb blew up, the bomb blew up. DRK dropped (Hit him for more dmg than HP he had) BRD took a bit of damage, and I took about 180. Got the Oldton Chest key off it.
