Rare Finds

I think these are rare finds in East Saruta. I've only seen one and I was early on in the game and was scared to go near it. I've killed a bargast too. But only one. It dropped wolf hide. The wolves near San o'dria are there alot though.

They are sparsed in East Sarutabuta. I always find one next to the South East Horuto Ruins.
These things are easy to find

Remember you also need to get xp from the battle to get a crystal. I've killed <6 and gotten 3 Dark Crystals.
Yay for Jhereg!

These things are also undead. Which means you whms out there can cast cure on it and deal damage to it. I'm sure of this because I used my pld ability vs undead, and this was intimidated

You don't have to have control of the region. My Bastokan gets plenty of crystals in Saruta. You only need Signet and to gain Exp.

I killed these in East Saratu'' and gottena wolf Hide from two and a root from one.

I killed a barghest (lvl up from wolf found in tahrongi canyons) And Ive gotten one wolf hide and a darkness crystal. (heh, 1 of the only 2 Ive found)

I've only killed one, but it dropped a Wolf Hide.

Where do you even find Mad Foxes? Are they a rare spawn?
RE: Durfaroth

yes they are fairly rare. which is odd because what they drop (aside from crystal) isnt worth too much.

And they are very weak.

lvl 5rdm/blm I killed one in just under 20 seconds and he was DC heh

I have only seen two of these in East Sarutabaruta, between the north side of the stream and rocks in H-9 and I-9. One dropped a hide, one dropped nada, don't remember if I had signet either time, but I usually do and didn't get a crystal. I was only 7 or 8 thf and solo'd it as a decent challenge (once with Hi Defense, once without). Warning, it can cast a disease on you, forget the exact name, but it stops you from regenerating hp or mp when healing naturally (i.e. when you hit CTRL-H or NUMPAD-*, cure spells will still work, not sure on regen), it doesn't harm you in any other way, but does take some time to go away, I just headed back to town in the meanwhile.

I got a dark off a Madd Fox, so it is possible I was lvl 8 or so and had signet.
darkness crystal??
# Dec 02 2003 at 10:49 PM Rating: Default
I've killed prolly 50 or so of these and I never once got a darkness crystal to drop. Do they drop?
RE: darkness crystal??

Two things are required for it to drop a dark crystal for you.

1. You need signet cast on you and the area has to be controlled by your country.

2. You have to get xp when you kill the creature.

If you don't meet either of those criteria you will not get any xtals to drop.
