Nope... that is the magic of the "Forest of the Dead".

the other magic is when you are being attacked through a hill and you don't know where it is coming from.

atrox
it changes to day time at 6am i believe
then back to night at 12:01 am
i usually moved to a safe place when it happens cause you never know how many mobs will spawn right next to you

yea they change at 12 when game night begins and change back at 6 with day. the other sweet thing is that the vampires that are there even at daytime grow stronger when night comes so its a nasty surprise when you have been killing them for some time and then suddenly you cannot do it so easily any more...

There is also a great quest there for both day and night mobs...So FoTD really is a nice place to hunt...Just be sure to hit a safespot before the switch

The switch always changes my feeling from 'haha, I'm healing here pretty well for being on such a low skillset' to 'oh-em-gee'. Although nighttime is a good chance to proove that sleep is still overpowered - should that be landing on deep red mobs with sleep resist with a C Grade stick?

I do think I've seen the spider by daytime but never sure where nor if it was really dyatime - FotD is always confusing for me.

Default Re: Swapping mobs in Forest of The Dead ??

i went 69-76 pretty much completely at fod
i would have been there at lower lvl but fod didnt exist back then :P
i would have been there till 78 but the xp is so good its always the first place you check for wartags

quick question
how many melee solo at high fod dureing night time?
i prolly could have done it just based on damage but aoe slow is kinda a killer for a duel boxed ws with a golem

1. Soloed to 76 at all times in fod, i'm sh though and I always had at least emp1. Would probably still be there some but i'm doing sub atm.

2. There are spiders that look like the Atrox in Hot Springs. Don't remember their names though.

A few of the other mobs also change mdef at night (stronger at night) and a few other minor characteristics. Corrupted Guards are one example of this.

Oh yes, the quests there are great, both the mat quests (one in village, one at port spot) and the one which gives the story of the forest.

Speaking of quests, there is a fun series of two for Pavel's Ruins which start in the Schuttgart blacksmith shop. These are probably low 50's.

They can be soloed but only for the sake of soloing (or doing your 3rd class change) not really practical for leveling.

Also, keep in mind that the vamps are dark resist (for those using dark attacks.
