Band Biography

Tortoise is one of the bands that is used to define the Post-Rock movement. They do instrumental music with standard rock instruments, though they often use many different effects to get strange sounds out. Reviewers have called them "experimental, yet beautiful". They are continuing to release records. Though they may not sell a lot, they are typically very well regarded critically and amongst their fans. They have just released a covers album with Bonnie "Prince" Billy, which includes covers from many bands, including DEVO.

The Hare taunts the Tortoise.
Anything Muppet:

The Tortoise -- or "the Turtle", as he's sometimes known to sports fans -- is one of the main characters from the classic Aesop fable "The Tortoise and the Hare".

Kermit the Frog broadcasts from the scene of the great race between the Tortoise and the Hare in a "Sesame Street Sports" sketch from a 1971 episode of Sesame Street. When the race begins, the Hare offers to give the Tortoise a head start -- but when Kermit rushes to the finish line to see the results, the Frog is inadvertently crowned the winner of the race.

In a second "Sesame Street News Flash" sketch, the Hare challenges the Tortoise to a rematch. This time, the Tortoise comes equipped with a jet-pack.

The tortoise puppet appeared in a sketch with Waiter Grover where he worked at O'Brien's Restaurant. The Tortoise, referred to as Tony, delivered the "slow food" for those not interested in Grover's take on "fast food".

Puppet design

In the first sketch, the Tortoise was made out of the regular Green Anything Muppet, and featured that puppet's distinctive cone-shaped head. The Tortoise in the second sketch had a more turtle-y design, with no cone-head.

The Tortoise (Testudines Giganteus) are trained tortoises used by the gnomes in battle. The training area is to the west, and slightly north, of the Grand Tree. Trainer Nacklepen is in charge of their combat development.

Fighting

Tortoises have very high hitpoints and low attack, but good defence. With a fair variety of drops, they are arguably better than Yaks or Rock crabs for training purposes, but since they are a much higher level they are rarely used. It is recommended for training only if you can hit high enough to effectively damage them. Abyssal whips are effective against them.

At the north end of the Tree gnome stronghold there are 3 tortoises. One has three gnome riders, as described below. The other two do not have riders.

When fighting the tortoise with riders, the three gnomes take turns attacking the player. The mage sends a spell, which looks like Water strike, but sounds like Ice Burst. The ranger shoots, and the tortoise attacks with the warrior holding the reins if the player is within their meleeing range. These level 92 tortoises can hit up to 12 with melee, and the ranger and mage each hit a max of 6. The level 79 tortoises without riders use only melee, and hit up to 10.

When you kill the tortoise the Gnomes attack you. The driver, who exclaims "No! Dobbie's dead!", usually attacks first. After he is dead, the others attack - the mage yells, "Kill the infidel.", while the ranger merely says, "Argh!" They become aggressive to ALL players, so low levels should be careful around them. However, it has been observed that the three gnomes, once dismounted, will attack the player with the highest combat level within range in preference to any other, including the player that has just killed their tortoise mount. So, a useful tactic when a high level tries to poach on you is to keep killing the tortoise with the gnomes so that they will engage the high level while you attack another tortoise.

Two tortoises at the Battlefield of Khazard are ridden by three gnomes: a Gnome archer, Gnome driver, and a Gnome mage, all level 5s. Protection prayers aren't very effective because the riders use range, melee, and magic; however, the tortoises hit hardest with melee, so that prayer will stop the most damage.

It has been tested and proven that the ring of wealth has the ability to attract the better drops like the much coveted tortoise shell worth 12000 on the grand exchange. Prices however are subject to change as the grand exchange is constantly updating.

The total exp. given in either of the attack capabilities is 119 for the level 79 tortoise and 142 for the level 92 without the gnome riders.The total exp. given by the level 92 tortoise and the gnome riders is 177.

Trivia

  • Though there are two level 92 tortoises near the Khazard Battlefield, they are never seen fighting Khazard Troops.
  • The mage on the level 92 tortoise appears to be wielding a Guthix staff, just like the Guthix battle mages in the Mage Arena.
  • The gnomes on the level 92 tortoise can hit a maximum of 6 if they are riding it, but when the tortoise dies, they only hit a maximum of 2.
  • The magic attack of a level 92 tortoise sounds like the spell Ice Burst. The effect if it hits though is just damage.

Tibia

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From TibiaWiki

File:Tortoise.gif
This creature is in the Reptiles class.
Tortoise

185 Hit points
90 Experience points per kill

Summon/Convince: --/445 (Illusionable)
Abilities: Melee (0-50)
Pushable: ?
Push Objects: ?
Est. Max. Damage: 50 hp per turn
Immune To: None.
Strong To: Physical (-35%), Ice (-20%), Earth (-20%)
Neutral To: Holy, Death, Energy, Drown?, Life Drain?
Weak To: Fire (+10%)
Sounds: None.
Behavior: These creatures fight until death.
Since update 8.4 there have been rare spawns of powerful (but slow) tortoises, this is an anti-cheat measure taken by CIP.
Field Notes: They offer decent amount of money and experience for the effort.
Location: Laguna Islands, Fenrock, Port Hope and also can be found behind a wall below the center of Liberty Bay. These cannot be reached.
Strategy: They are slow and not too hard so they shouldn't be any problem for any vocation; you should be more careful of many Toads and Thornback Tortoises that usually accompany them. Use parcels if you are of a low level to avoid multiple attacks.
You may come across an unusually slow tortoise who heals itself. It no longer hits as hard as it used to, but some testing suggests that it "trains" like a slime would. They have abnormally high hit points, and heal a lot, very quickly. This monster is designed to make Cheaters "stuck" on this monster, since they cannot kill it.
Loot: 0-30 gp, Bag, Battle Hammer, Plate Shield, Fish, 0-3 Tortoise Eggs (semi-rare), Tortoise Shield (rare), Turtle Shell (rare). (Loot Statistics)
