Dreadlord mobs[edit source]

Other than running a Locate Object on some item that one of these mobs loads, is there any way to be certain that a "dreadlord" mob is actually of the dreadlord mobtype, rather than just a human or general humanoid? Russ3Z (talk) 18:25, December 9, 2016 (UTC)

Good question. I can test this in game but I don't know off hand whether a dreadguard is a mob type or a human mob.
When the game comes back up, I can think of two ways to test, so far. The first, as noted above, is to Locate an object, or better yet give the mob an unusual object (such as a rake, shovel, etc) that isn't likely to give any other results in the area. The second, related to that, has to do with the fact that at least some mob types do not let you give them items, depending on your own race. It would be interesting to confirm what those limits are, since many of the potential dreadlord-type mobs are smobs in likely no-locate areas and it would give another method.
Regarding dreadguard vs dreadlord as types thing, I do recall an Announcement post some years back where the Dreadlord clan was changed to Dreadguard, I think, so you'll see (I think, not entirely sure now) some players with a title of "XXX the Dreadlord Dreadguard" or something. You can still track by "dreadlord" as well, though track types are odd (ie "fowl" for tracks but "bird" for locates) so I'd take that with a grain of salt.
By the way, to sign your name to your post, add 4 "~" characters at the end. Russ3Z (talk) 19:48, December 9, 2016 (UTC)
