A Horse of Course (good solo Fang Breakers faction quest)

This is pretty decent quest to work Fang Breakers faction especially for solo classes (perfect for druids since they can track). Will share what I know from doing this quest over the last week or so.

Task giver: Mamenil in Dragonscale Hills (at camp with other task givers)

Keyword for task: vanished

Task is to retrieve Lelluran's bridle. Lelluran is a named horse in Loping Plains. Any horse in the northeast area of the zone can be a placeholder. Lelluran does not summon and his HP is similar to other horses (but hits hard like any other DB mob there). Kill him, loot bridle, then return to Mamenil and give him the bridle. Reward is Fang Breaker's faction and about 30% AA exp.

Took me 31 times to hit ally from scratch.

Pros of this quest:

- exp is decent - killing horses gives about 12% AA exp at level 80 and they only have about 88K HP

- soloable

- nobody else is doing it

- horses can drop necro spell Phantasmal Orb

- horses drop Flawless/Superb Animal Pelts and Raw Faycite Crystals (which sell decent) and, on rare occasions, Superb Marrow

Cons:

- placeholders wander so there is no telling where Lelluran will spawn and is difficult to tell when he is up without track (but he will be in the neighborhood of the stables somewhere -- usually along the hills SE of the stables or along the north wall)

- quest giver and task are in separate zones

- horses are kind of buggy - they warp all over the place (not pull warping, just randomly pop from one spot to another) - makes for tricky pulls as one can appear in your pull path out of nowhere - Lelluran is subject to this as well - plus side is if you wait long enough somewhere he will probably warp near you if up :P

- it's in Loping Plains (laaaaaaaag spikes)


Good spot to pull to is along the east wall near the orc camp. If you are KoS to bears/frogs need to watch out for them at that spot as they wander up to the orc camp from the south (druids are not KoS to them so was not an issue for me).

Lelluran typically spawns every 5-6 kills but is very random (once killed over 50 PH's before a spawn - a few times was up again when I returned from turn-in).

Anywhoooo..not a bad way for a druid to spend time if LFG or not on long enough to group.

Tried this 1 once. Didnt see the named up, was 4 mobs in the stall where he is located at on map, all agro just walking in there. Be invis. Not solo for all classes.

Yeah - stalls not so good (especially if someone starts the quest that spawns the undead in there). There are static horses in the stalls but wandering horses are placeholders too.

Thanks Feemee. Maybe after todays patch the lag spikes wont be so bad in LP. Which I think might even have something to do with at least some of the warping.
