Another set of useless mobs, the aviak birds wondered through zones near Moradhim and Forkwatch. The main camp sat near the Level 17 Quest mob for Halas. If you ran out of Moradhim, headed North for a bit, then went directly East, you would run into it.

Aviaks served no interesting purpose. Maybe one quest in the entire game dealt with them. I remember spending an hour beating the mess out of their entire camp and leaving with just a repair bill.

I’m not even going to try to find a photo of an aviak… they were just that irrelevant. Yet, in case you can’t remember them or never played the game, they most closely resembled Foghorn Leghorn from Looney Tunes:

    They were for some elf 20 path quest. And actually, they dropped some pretty sweet rares, most people didn’t know that…

      Yeah, I used to farm them but rarely came away with the good stuff. I want to say they had a piece of armor that was level 25ish plate.. I remember obtaining a piece off auctions and heading out there to try and get more.

    There were numerous Aviak camps in the game; one was largely the entirety of the zone I think you referred to; Goldfeather Eyrie. I never spent much time here myself, having made my toons out of Freeport or other evil starting cities, this zone was meant more as a mini-raid/XP area for lower level toons out of the nearby starting cities, IMO. Also there was the huge Aviak Village in the zone of the same name, where a whole slew of very cool “misprint” gear dropped early in the game’s life. Plate gear that could be equipped by melee classes, and even a plate BP that could be equipped by Monk/Druid dropped there for a short time. Other regions had more of a wandering variety of Aviak’s, not sure what they may have dropped if anything out of the ordinary. Lastly were the Aviak’s in PoS, that were very famously farmed for that Cleric/Pal BP that sold for millions, which people loved for PL’s due to its huge heal proc (name is escaping me atm).

      Was it a blue-ish BP? Also, welcome to the blog. I don’t write much here anymore but there’s plenty of content. Also, do check out the Facebook communities.

        Thanks! Yeah I have peeked in here a few times over the years and commented, haha. There were a few really cool pieces that dropped there, and yeah I think lighter-shade of blue was the color of the more sought after pieces. Skystrider’s BP, Talonthorn BP, Windwoven Tunic… I think those are the names, been a while even though I was just talking about it on the Discord not too long ago, haha! Boneduke (who has commented on here a bunch over the years), loved that place too and farmed the gear from there.
