This spawns without repop timer every time a bard at the appropriate step zones in. It remains up for approximately 10 minutes before despawning. Be sure you are ready to engage when you spawn it.

Strat is basically kite the adds behind the ramp staying within the two sets of dragon skulls. A bard can do this without any trouble as the adds are very slow. Sometimes they despawn when you kill their lich, sometimes they do not. No pattern to how or why. It's Everquest folks. Keeping these adds off your raid wins you the fight.

Liches basically just die when you fight them. No trick to them.

The dragon at the end does a nasty dot ae. RGC or RC clear it up.

Posted 86 Mage 1k AA's (moslty pet) at event spot. Zoned Bard in and sent pet after 1st Lich. adds aggroed mage so i just ran out kiting them. Once first Lich died I target the next etc. Until all were dead. summoned Bard to spot once I had pet on Veshton. Burned Veshton. Burned Dracoliche. Merc was FM after fight I was roughly 70%.

Below is the strat for the fight, if you don't want a spoiler don't read it :P.

Numbers: I'd recommend 30 for anyone w/o great gear minimum, I did mine with 16 mostly GoD geared (anguish guild but haven't farmed it too much yet)

Time Limit: There is a time limit but the encounter is not blowable, so if you fail can camp out/in to restart. Note the encounter must be down to respawn it.

The mobs pop near the ST key turn in building, its in the 2nd big open area near one of the 1st platform sections. Once the bard zones in either via rez, camping back in, or actual click in the raid is spawned and the timer begins, I'd recommend setting up the raid, letting the mobs poof, then camping out and in when rdy to begin.

Basically on top of the platform Vesthon will spawn (Erudite dude), and at the bottom of the platform in a semi circle, 7 "liches" will spawn, 3 human, 4 skeleton, and with each lich will be 2 minions. Most of the mobs will hit around 800 to begin with, however, the minions will hit harder if they tether, so they need to be CC'd or kited in a small area while you kill.

My personal strat was to kite (low hp agro is the best way if you can avoid getting hit) the minions behind the platform while the raid took them out. Now the minions of the human liches are not mezzable (red and grey skeletons), the minions of the skell liches (white skells and undead trolls) are mezzable, and the minions poof once their lich is dead, so after you've got the minions taken care of kill the liches one at a time, humans 1st, if adds get in camp that are mezzable mez em, if they're not OT or kite.

Once all the liches are down Vesthon will pop, he hits under 1k and has an ae 400 dot/debuff but basically he's not much to worry about, slaying him will pop the dracoliche.

Once poped the draco will need to be burned, he hits for up to 1400, has ae ramp, and an unresistable snare/500 dot ae. Groups will need to be healed, he wasn't too hard on the MT though, so depending on gear 1-3 healers on him specifically should be fine. Draco can be difficult, but he has low hp so burn down for the win.

So remember, CC minions, kill Humans, Skells, Vesthon, Dracoliche, and watch tethering, not an easy fight but doable.

Unfair? When reading over the entire Bard Epic 1.5
I have decided that The Dragon Necropolis raids (parts 1 + 2)
are the fights that define this quest.

- bone collecting - simple
- Abomination + Dracholich - da bomb(s)
- 4 dragons - more travel than trouble
- thief - decent, not too hard
- Metal - hard part is gonna be getting there.
