    Was running a group of new players through the sewers on a bit of a day 1 tour and everything was going fine.. skeletons? no problem, spiders? pffft, imps? yawn, Lich ?? whatever... Ghost? ate the entire party then zoomed back to the respawn area and ate them again, proceeding to spawn camp the party. It life drained them so fast it took me like ten minutes to kill it. I swear to god i even saw it tea-bagging somebody and saying "pwned noob!".

    Should there be red and blue ghosts? ;)

    If there were, sounds like you ran into red ones from the 1337th plane of Outlander hell! ;)

    The ghosts drain too much life force and too often, making them difficult to kill. At level 61, even I find them extremely tough. I basically have to corner one and keep pounding at it before it can drain my characters life force and most of the time, my characters health bar ends up being close to zero. They also have a very fast re-spawn rate compared to other creatures in the dungeon. As Themo Lock said, ' Ghosts are the new spiders'. Hopefully, they will balance this out by the next release.

    Ghosts? Sound mighty powerful. I cant even kill skinny little skeletons yet.. =(
    Nice to see that the game is challenging. I ought to get back to testing/playing this game, but just moved recently so my powerful computer isnt plugged in yet, and I got no desk to put it on. Im stuck with laying in bed on my laptop.

    after you kill one and they respawn in an instance, they should fight on your side. then i would like ghosts.

    It would only be fair if when they killed us we got to continue fighting them in our own ghost form, and of course had the same awesome powers they have.

    Then see who wins!

    That would just mean a ghost gets to kick my butt twice.

    Why oh why do their spells cut right thru the walls and I can't break them with LOS?

    Anyone remember Ghosts in Ultima 7 and how they would completely **** your party if you were unprepared? My favourite part was when I found out they go through walls. Yay....

    Honestly, though, I think you should need magic to fight a ghost.

    Some type of enchanted sword to hit it, since it doesn't have a corporeal body and physical weapons shouldn't have an effect.

    And maybe something to protect you from the ghosts attacks if its too hard.

    Not every enemy should have an obvious way to beat them; there should be ways to beat them, and to avoid them; but not obvious. I mean, I hope this is true when dragons come in the game too -- I hope their fire-breath is devastating and their scales give them tough armor. It will be a let down if someone could kill a dragon just through min/maxing and with no tactics in battle.

    Funny you should mention that, since i switched to mage/healer ghosts drop way faster. Unless they were hotfixed.
