Standing at seven feet in height, the ape seems to be composed entirely of muscle. The ape's black fur is weathered with its eyes vigilant for intruders of its domain. There is silver fur running across the ape's chest.
WARNING: Black Ape area is full of mud. If you don't have good athletics you may be permanently stuck until someone helps you out! Apes also throw bones as a ranged attack that are very damaging to shields. I found that if you get stuck and cant dig your way out, you can make a kill and then move along with no rt.
Will occasionally dig up an old bone that it can use as a weapon. Note that the bone cannot be picked up.
A black ape digs into the earth for a moment before letting out a happy grunt upon finding an old bone!
This creature is immune to electricity.
~ in DR 3.1 all apes will pick up an old bone moments after locating an adventurer 110th Ranger with 70 agil + reflex, 600 evasion, 550+ in all defensive skills i can dance with 4. Stealth of 580, 460 bow and 440 xbow kill apes fine Edged are all 440-450 and i struggle to kill apes because of their parry. (including ambushing)
Ideal training range seems to be from 500 to 700.
Backstab still locking at 660.
Stealth still locks at 700 by sniping at melee, but rather slowly. 500 shield, 590 parry, 650 evasion they barely touch me.
Still teaches evasion at 846 but does not move off dabbling. Does not teach Parry at 914
