The Ganodermic Beast ("gano") is a monster that spawns in the Wilderness every hour. You can kill gano for the chance at some great rewards, including the extremely rare black partyhat and Nex sets.
Gano does have 20k hitpoints, so it is recommended to do gano with a group of friends.
Also, there is a chance that other players may kill you at gano. It is always located in a multi-combat area in the wilderness.
To get to gano, type ::gano. If gano is not available, the system will tell you how many minutes until the next spawn.
If it is available, it will tell you the area it is located in.
If you do not know where a location is, you can ask in the "help" cc. You can also Google the location.
This is the Ganodermic Beast. It's pretty T H I C C.
Gano has several different phases.
When it first spawns, everyone will receive the server message "The beast has been spotted near [location]."
The next few phases are also announced via server message. Each phase is announced when the Ganodermic Beast reaches a certain number of hitpoints.

Leechers are people who come when there is only a little bit of health left, usually 6k hp or less.
