Ahh, that really brings to light the issue of epic solo encounters in the wild. It's such an issue; how do you put interesting, exhilerating boss monsters tucked away in secret locations around the game world, and then determine their loot table?

If the creature drops epic items, people would group up and farm it all day. That would take away a lot of the magic, to be sure.

But without a sufficient reward, I feel cheated every time I kill one of these little easter-egg bosses.

At the end of the day though, it's something AoC does well. Whereas in WoW, every time I see a named NPC I don't even bother killing it because I know it will be a quest objective down the road. In AoC, almost every world boss is there for the enjoyment of watching it bleed.

This was for a quest, not just a random named. I just exaggerated a bit in my story.
