So far, I have taken a look at my monster manual statistics for my account as a whole (Part 1 and Part 2), specifically for Erdrique (Part 3 and Part 4), and specifically for Hamllin (Part 5 and Part 6). Now, I want to take a look at the same trends and analysis for another of my characters, Kolll. Kolll is a first life Ranger, who primarily focuses on the Arcane Archer enhancement line and is currently working his way through the Shiradi Epic Destiny.
One immediate thing that is clear when looking at the statistics, Kolll doesn’t account for nearly as much as the overall monster kills as Erdrique and Hamllin. This is primarily simply due to time constraints. Although I really enjoy playing Kolll, he just doesn’t get the same amount of playing time as Erdrique or Hamllin. All told, Kolll has taken down over 5,300 monsters/enemies. This accounted for just about 1.5% of all of my enemy kills on my VIP account (Table 1 and Figures 1 and 2).
Taking a look at Kolll’s statistics by monster type, it looks like the enemies that accounted for Kolll’s most kills were humanoids, player races, monstrous humanoids, vermin, and undead. Although not in the same order, these monster types are also the top five across my account. Kolll accounted for just about 1 to 2% of the total number of monster kills for these top five monster types across my entire account. Kolll has accounted for a higher percentage of kills in outsiders and constructs than in the some of the other monster types. This is primarily due to when monsters in those types were added to the monster manual and the timing of the quests that Kolll was (and is currently) making his way through. For instance, Kolll was making his way through the epic versions of the Vault of Night and the Sands of Menechtarun when some of the various constructs and outsiders were added to the monster manual.

Figure 2. Kolll’s and my account monster kills by monster type for those in the monster manual.
Monsters in the volumes of the Prologue, Volume 1, and Volume 2 accounted for the top three most monster kills for him. Monsters that were added with Volume 5 ranked fourth for Kolll. I don’t find this too surprising and these trends are similar to what I have seen with Erdrique and Kolll. One thing I also noted was that Kolll had more monster killed from Volume 7 then in some of the earlier volumes. This is all due to the fact that Kolll is running quests that contain more of the monster/enemy types that were released in Volume 7 then some of those earlier volumes.
Table 2. Total monster kills for Kolll and my VIP account by monster manual volume.
The monster races that accounted for the majority of kills for Kolll are listed in Table 3. The monster race that Kolll accrued the most kills for were humans and his efforts accounted for over 1.4% of my VIP account. Other monsters that were in Kolll’s top ten of most killed included spiders, gnolls, and hobgoblins. Looking at the percent of the monster kills attributed to Kolll, it is interesting to note how he accounts for a large percentage of the kills for dretch, bears, and draegloth (Table 4). These monsters just happened to be added to the monster manual while Kolll was working through quests that contain them.

Excluding the monsters that Kolll hasn’t had any kills of, the monsters that Kolll has the fewest amount of kills are presented in Table 5. The majority of these monsters happen to be in quests that Kolll isn’t making his way through. However, I expect this to change. Kolll still needs a large number of quests to complete as favor runs. As he makes his way through those quests, he’ll encounter the monsters in these earlier volumes and will build up those statistics.

One thing these trends show is the smaller impact Kolll has had on my monster manual statistics account wide. However, even though Kolll hasn’t contributed to a significant portion of my account’s kills, he has contributed to a large percentage to some specific races. These are primarily due to timing of monster manual releases and the quests he is actively running. Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting those monsters in the monster manual!!
