The Basics of Swarm Pulling in Everquest

Discover the techniques needed to swarm pull effectively

There are two key factors to swarm pulling in Everquest.

  • You can heal & absorb more damage than is being dealt.
  • You can deal damage back while in this state.

There are many ways to go about this mathematical balancing act. Understanding these two key factors will allow you to perfect and build on top of your own techniques.

The general basis is that the character performing the swarm pull will be looking for mobs that are considered light blue or lower in most* cases. This color merely indicates that the mobs are lower in level. However, when you pull 10, 20, 30, 40+ mobs, this exponentially increases the amount of damage you will take.

So let it be known now, this is a difficult skill to learn, and it will be messy and you will feel like you were hit with a semi-truck many times over. The thing to remember is that, once you have mastered your swarm pulling technique, it is highly rewarding and you will be able to farm loot, platinum, trade skill items, and power level in Everquest like never before.

* In certain cases, depending on the character’s class, the level disparity may not matter as much, because their techniques differ, such as ranger’s headshot, rogue’s assassinate, and berserker’s decapitate.
