    I didn't even realize tantillions were around again. Used to love me hunting those back in Pre-Engine days.

    Those were tantardions. Tantillions were the small orange things. Usually those two mobs would be quite close to one another, though.

  7. I remember Anna Anda Atreides (?) of the Desert Rangers Soc, hunting Tantardions with ModMerc 24/7 in shadow armor, far west of rig in 2004. *sigh*

    It was always impressive to see him/her taking those big frogs out before they even approached him/her.
    Then, one day, Tantardions started to shoot flashes/shockwaves...

  8. She used imk2, also first player to get over lvl 100 in rifle, first player that managed to complete all shadow parts F.
    Compared to others she managed to kill tant with 2 or 3 hits less than others.
    Almost all in Desert Rangers had imk2. Info on this gun explain that was used by Desert Rangers still today - one of reasons to chose soc name although many used both imk2 and MM like Starman who managed to be the first player to get over lvl 100 in handgun

  9. Tantardions do 100% Electric, and Shadow armor have no electric protection, so not really the best set...
    But old players will remember that tantardions were not doing hits in the past.
    The Mann MPH skilling mob.

  10. If I remember correctly, back in the days of 2004, Tantardions didnt do this electric damage thing (firing lighting strikes) and only started attacking if they were in front of you...but thanks to imk2/modmerc they never reached Atreides...and Shadow Armor did not get touched either. :)
  11. There was no attack from tantardion in 2004, the perfect noob skilling mob.

    Darn it... and I was pew pew 'ing Sabas for 5 or 6 pecs a loot :D
  13. Area with tantardion was usually crowded by sea of tantilions witch are fast, aggressive and deal a lot of damage.
    So you had to collect them and run with them far away and die there to have tantardion place free for an hour or so.
    There were two or three places on Calypso with them, years latter one spot witch were easier to reach was used by sweaters too.
    Witch used same technique to get rid of tantilions (helped usually by one vet player with enough hp, good armor and good fap)
    The place where Anda hunted was on the way of two ara guardians witch randomly passed so you had to pay attention to be out of their agro range or to kill them.
    So apart tantardion she had tantilions, areneatrox and a lot of curious players or possible competitors.
    Like now also then - nothing was easy.
