Yar is the second toughest mob in Malmohus, the Mid epic zone. Only the dragon is harder.
He's a drakulv — a werewolf — and he cons deep purple to 50. He's in the southwest corner of the zone at 6.6k, 58.6k.
Yar is normally surrounded by a small army of drakulvs including two or three attendants who come with him when he's pulled. But this isn't what makes him so tough. The hard part is the spiders that he summons in the nearby trees. Although they only con orange, they cast a nasty unbreakable snare that turns your group into sitting ducks for the bigger mobs.
Luckily there's an easy way to handle the encounter. Approach Yar from the east. As you get close, walk on the south zone wall. Kill any drakulvs who attack you but otherwise ignore them. Continue walking west until you reach the southwest corner of the zone wall. If Yar is up, you will see him standing a little bit north of you. From this position, you can range-pull or body-pull Yar and his attendants without aggroing the other drakulvs, and the spiders will not affect you.
In the early days of the game, it wasn't unusual for two full groups to wipe while hunting Yar. Nowadays, three years later, things are different. The trophy pictured here was obtained with just three characters.
Yar 's trophy was added to the game in version 1.75 on April 6, 2005. For a list of other trophies that were added at the same time, click here.
