Quite possibly
epic mob Scott Hartsman's last EQ2 interview...

Mob bosses are the brass ring for competing gamers.  Guilds
fight these monstrous battles to gain epic bragging rights and players
cower in awe when we stumble across one of these impressive beings.

Savanja catches former Senior Producer Scott "Galenite" Hartsman for
one last interview before he leaves his position at EverQuest II to
talk about the mob bosses in Rise of Kunark, raid encounters, and named
lore. Please join us to hear all about the bad boys of

Savanja: In RoK beta, I stumbled across a rather
epic gorilla that kindly handed me my rear. What other
contested mobs are wondering the open air lands and can we get some
idea for those that are hoping to land one of these bad boys, what the
spawn rates are like?

Hartsman: Ah, yes, the Tangrin, the giant gorilla that owned you ...and
me more than once. We have more coming, including the 3 new avatars and
some buffed versions of the existing avatars.  We also have
Venril’s Generals in the pipeline, and the X2 contested mobs in Kunzar
Jungle… all coming soon to a server near you.

When the Avatars come back they’ll spawn more often than they did
before they left.  Aside from the Avatars, respawn on
contested mobs varies widely, from a single day to as much as five days.
