Just killed him on Phinny... piece of cake with L65's... shammy, wiz, cleric.

Pulled reaver out of the room, easy kill.
A second reaver spawned upon his death, easy kill.
Lord G spawned.

All the fighting was on the bridge outside the room.

He did blind the shammy for most of the fight.
Shammy pet was attacking, shammy dot's landed (poison and disease)... curse dot did not land.
Wiz nuked.
Cleric needed to heal only twice.

Dropped all 3 books.

Just soloed this guy as a 51 warrior in mostly "test" gear, with a J1 merc cleric. My only concern was that the merc might draw aggro while I was blind (about half the time), forcing me to play find the mob. But with frequent Provoke, and the merc on Efficient to keep her from going crazy, it was no problem

Getting Ghiosk to spawn

You have to kill the "a black reaver" behind the first locked door in the back of the zone. You get the key (a stone key) for that door off the "Captain of the Guard" who is towards the front of the zone (multiple's of them). After killing the insta-spawn "a black reaver" (usually 5-7 of them chain-spawn), then Lord Ghiosk spawns.

I usually just pull the reaver out of the room onto the bridge, and kill them there, that way i have plenty of room to move around. make sure you kill all the golems around you before engaging the reaver's. For some reason, the aggro range on the golems increase when Lord Ghiosk spawns, and they all come running. Fire spells are 100% effective; everything else is a waste of mana.

Easly solo'd as a 65 necro.

Edit: I have killed Lord Ghiosk about 6 times now, and every time the last "a black reaver" was killed, he spawned. So maybe the description should be changed: "Spawns in place of a black reaver's corpse occasionally."

Spawn Time on Lord Ghiosk
# Dec 31 2007 at 2:33 PM Rating: Decent
Hi Myself a 55 shammy and a ranger from myguild spent over two hours last night trying to get Ghiosk to spawn with noluck. We were down by th gazebos and killed all mobs several times and still no ghiosk or Black Reaver. Can anyone tell me wha the spawn time is on Ghiosk and if he has a place holder. I have come across him twic before when in CoM but now that I am doing the 1.0 epic I can't seem to get him to spawn.

for you SK's farming your 2.0 piece the pendant is not a guaranteed drop from ghiosk. Just killed him, cake didnt even get me below 98 percent. no heal potions, i didnt even lifetap, passive and proc taps were enough to keep me at 100 percent. fight took about 30 seconds. 12k ubuffed with warspear, did have chanty haste though.
decent fight at 54

We had Ghiosk pop after a reaver dropped; we did okay vs Ghiosk even though we started out blind, but then the tank got summoned and ended up too close to the edge and fell in the water, blind, and it got messy after that. Except for that we would've had no problem with 54 cleric, 54 bard, 53 SK.

I went into CoM going to hunt for pages and found a 65 Beastlord (no, not time geared, well geared in ornate and the like but not even elemental flagged) soloing him. Books were rotting so I got asked to come up.

I stuck around a while and we slaughtered the zone from front to back.

50 Shaman went to 51 grouped with 'em here and we took this guy down 2x times. Seems BL's like to see when fighting so I kept cure blindness loaded while we fought him...
Interesting fight

Dude seems to like to fight in the water LOL. Me 58 Warrior, a 62 Shammie, and a 50 Cleric killed him several time without much trouble but trying to move him around so as to keep him out of the water. But if you have a good swim skill like around 150 or so go ahead fight him in the water on his prefered turf, you'll kill him anyway. Dropped 3 books (dunno what they are for) and a Thornblade everytime. The Reavers Chain we also killed a couple chains worth, sucker like to Blind you alot also summon ya. I'd try to move them out past the gazeebo to the wall and try to corner them by the post(that way they don't knock back as much and when blinded you just have to listen to your wave sounds to tell which direction to hit, just keep up the pressure on him. I killed him while blinded and the Cleric was blinded as well but the Shammie kept up the heal and they did not nuke after I had aggro so they would not pull him off me while I was blinded.
Sometimes one must grab the wolf by the ears. I have learned as well that it is sometimes harder to let go of the wolf's ears than it was to grab them.

Friend and I were fooling around in zone, killed our way back here and decided to take out the reaver, Ghiosk was just in the way. decided me, a 64 mage would solo ghiosk while him, 65 mage would take on reaver's. pulled with mala, stuck first try, brought far enough out of room, and stuck pet on ghiosk to hold him still while running farther out with reaver. second mage took reaver off my hands so I could go back to my pet and the ghiosk killing action. Pet took him down to 80% to assure aggro, using 61 ward of xegony, and than chain nuked himm to death, not a single resist using fire based nukes. no idea whet he was hitting Gabab for seeing as I was out of range of those messages. Burned my mana on him tho, first keeping pet healed than getting bored and burning him into the ground. moved back to helping mage with reavers. 3 books and leggings dropped, and absolutely nothing from the chain of reavers. anyways, hope this info helps some, oh and that blind these mobs do can be real annoying, at least from a pets perspective running all around like a chicken with its head cut off if you try to position the mob while pet is blinded. try to make sure that stuff wears off.

Oh yeah, loot rotted, we were there for the reavers, not lord, even tho zone was broadcasted that mob was on its back, never heard a single word about anyone coming to get any of it

Summons, max hit seems to be 200 or so. He blinds. He has dropped the 3 books and the throneblade every kill. He spawns out of the first reaver spawn in the castle in the room with the 6 or so fog golems.

Took this guy down with a 65 BL with mostly lvl 50 gear or so and 65 Shaman. 65 Shaman used Malos, Bane, and Torpor. BL pet tanked most the time, but BL would get in there occassionally and I would Torpor BL while her pet healed up. Never slowed him. Shaman pet was 58 and BL pet was the lvl 64 spell. BL pet did not have lvl 65 haste spell. No KEI either.

Ghiosk is cake..duo him with 56 bard and 62 mage easily. He does hit hard and fast and cannot be slowed but the key is at 50% he has a self slow and hits like a panzy after that. So after the reaver is dropped (always spawns from the first reaver just inside the castle) just back pet off to make sure you have enough manna...with full manna can finish him off with 40% left with c3 and bard c2 song playin. So heal the pet once maybe twice till ghiosk is at 90% then nuke em till 50% with fbot then just kick back and nuke/heal as needed. Always drops the shaman epic pieces and i've probably killed him 20+ times and only seen the druid/monk/beast legs drop twice. Throneblade seems to be his common drop.
easy kill

Took him out along with 2 black reavers with me, 65 mage with epic pet, a 58 mage with pet, and a 60-something druid. Other than the fact that he kept summoning me it was easy.

This guy is somewhat tough. He is highly magic resistant, and hits for around 210 max. He can also blind.

I tried him with a 65cleric and a 44beastlord. Tried to have the Beastlord slow and got resisted at least 3 times. Tried to land Mark of Righteous with the cleric, and it was resisted 3 times as well.

Nope, I solo him at 65 with my necro and its pretty easy but then i have the 1k pet heal. A 59 Necro with pet and a cleric could likely duo him but it wont be easy.

at 65 with all my spells its easy to solo the reaver and him

My god have they made him harder? We went in today after a jade reaver for my druid epic, walked through the zone leaving a trail of corpses like we owned the place. I mean really, we made it all the way to the keep without a med. break. Any way we make it through the door and there is lord Ghiosk. So we harmony the first room and pull him, no adds. He destroyed us we never even got him below 75%. First out of mana then out of health. I was last to die, he summoned me.

You probably pulled Lord Rak'Ashiir, not Lord Ghiosk. Ghiosk spawns from the corpse of the Black Reaver in the 1st room. Lord Rak'Ashiir is just floating around...he a nasty SOB, but easy to take out too using mage pets.

Myself 61Mage and a friend 60Druid went to CoM to see how far we could get as far as Neh'Ashiir. After clearing mobs up to the castle harmny pulled from front and worked back to Black Reaver against far wall. We were fighting Reaver on bridge/walkway to castle when we had to evac due to adds. On return Lord Ghiosk was in spot where Black Reaver had been killed. My assumption is he will spawn where ever u kill his placeholder and do so almost instantly.

Hope this helped a little

Also, we duo'd him using 61 Air pet with items as a tank and I just kept Primal Remedy up( Pet HoT) and Druid handled CH's ..got no aggro and he went down easy if not a little slowly..apprx 1.5-2 minutes

We beat him today with one group:
50 shaman
65 shaman
46 monk (me)
61 ranger
61 warrior (not entirely sure of lvls but these are about what we had)
he spawned out of reaver spawn in first room of castle, three reavers then ghiosk popped, and that was the end, we took him down with NO problem. he dropped three books (not sure of names) and these leggings which may have been part of the revamp because they are not listed here:

Ghosly Leggings of Terror
magic, lore, no drop
8str 5sta 5dex 5wis 2agi 40hp 30mana 5svmagic
monk, druid, beastlord (look black like gnome skin)

nice legs and they are mine now. hope this helps.

Killed him twice last night with me, a 56 Beastlord and a 55 Cleric. First time he dropped legs, Yay me! Second time he dropped Throneblade Yay cleric's merchant!

Not too tough, with lull strategically placed on a couple of mist golems in the first castle room I was able to single pull. Tough part was our DPS wasn't up to snuff and started getting repops on bridge before Ghiosk went down. We figured out a way to get around this problem on accident though.

What would be the recommended force to take Ghiosk? One well balanced group or a raid of 2-3 groups. The group I have readily access to is a:
52 Shammy (me)
52 Druid
43 Warrior
51 Warrior
62 Cleric
62 Druid

No enchanter though. Think we would have a chance at getting my books?

Last night i tried to kill this guy with my 56 Necromancer. I charmed a high level undead wraith and siced it on him and then used my undead slow. I got the message this only works on undead. I look at this guy again and he looks undead my slow should work. I try again and same message. After about 30 sec my pet is down to 40% and Lord G is down to 70%. I tell the cleric to heal my pet. well he heals him too 40% and then does not heal again. I see that my pet is down to 10% and the Lord G is only down to 40% i say to them zone. Well they zone and i get summoned 7 times trying to gate and finally i am blinded and died.

The whole point is a 56 Necro with Thrall of bones can solo him if he were actually undead. With him not being one a shammy who can chain cast heals and a necro can easily take this guy down.

BTW i was only summoned after pet was killed even after i doted it with ebolt, splurt, BoD, Corr, and darkness

Sorry, this applies ONLY to those on the Bristlebane server.

Tarrien (a 55 or so Shaman) Ninja-looted the epic quest items off a fallen Lord Ghiosk.

He was asked repeatedly to /tell the raid leader for a /random roll to determine who got to loot.

He sent no /tell, waited till the corpse went "public" (even with raid window looting the last two minutes or so are "open looting") and looted all the items. Includeing Mace of Shadowed Soul. Which is SK only.

When confronted with his misdeed (he apparently didn't know that even when PUBLIC the corpse still gives item loot messages to the raid) he said (quote- direct from my log, which is always on)
[Mon Apr 07 20:27:54 2003] Tarrien tells the raid, 'I dont need to be hear i can gate out if u like'

And then promptly beat feet.

[Mon Apr 07 20:29:09 2003] Tarrien tells the raid, 'Bye dont need this stupidity'
[Mon Apr 07 20:29:12 2003] Tarrien has left the group.
[Mon Apr 07 20:29:12 2003] Tarrien has left the raid.
[Mon Apr 07 20:29:43 2003] You have added tarrien to your IGNORE list.
[Mon Apr 07 20:29:49 2003] Tarrien fades away.

He was /petition'ed for ninja-looting (a bannable offense) and the petition was noted, and GMs are investigating.

If you reside on Bristlebane DO NOT accept this freak into your group.

This is a perfect example of why a corspe should be 'locked' by someone on the raid till loot is decided.
#DaBiznich, Posted: Apr 10 2003 at 11:18 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) So a Shaman "ninja-looted" a shaman epic quest item????? Aside from how absurd that first part sounds, why is someone telling this guy to be telling the raid leader how to do their job anyway? Unless the shaman in question was already packing an epic then I'd be surprised if a GM is going to ban, much less do anything about this one. I mean we aren't talking a CoF or anything here as far as the other loot is concerned...a MoSS sells for next to nothing anymore.
# Apr 21 2003 at 1:09 PM Rating: Decent
Purely the principle of it.

Still, would you want this guy to be a part of your raid? I know I wouldn't regardless of shaman epic drop and he's a shaman. What about the guy who the raid was possibly made for and this guy decides it was for him? NOT in my raid!

How can you trust him to not take your epic drop?

Myself (51 Shaman) and a few others were stomping Black Reavers when Lord Ghiosk popped .... well we weren't expecting this one so we ended up having to evac. Reavers are one thing but this cat is a pain. He has this nasty habit of floating out over the water, blinding, and then summoning our tank. Once down in the water it becomes impossible to heal said tank. At any rate just to let anyone know i casted Maliose 5 times and all were resisted then tried Togor's Inscets and Incapacitate 2 times each just on a whim and all were resisted too .... did not say he was immune or anything like that .... just really really high resists. Also tried envenomed bolt and Plague once apiece and both were resisted lol .... after that I stuck to patch healing and attempting to cure the blindness that he seemed to chain cast. Anyways hope this information helps someone.

Bah, can you say raid wipe? well yeah, i have heard he doesnt aggro unless you attack him, and his spawn wasnt quite planned by our raid leader. After his aggro an AE basically destroyed all included our MT, 62 ogre warrior, i was quickly summoned after my attempts to perform a root, resisted, and some back up heals, managed to escape evac was on last second when i got interrupted summoned and wrecked by this Lord G character.

Several people are confused on this thread.... Ghiosk is NOT the shammy epic mob that casts and AOE spell, he is (as far as I know) a full melee mob, and he is spawned by killing reavers. Rak'askiir is the AE mob, that is usually killed with mage fire pets (high resistance to the AE fire spell). check out www.eqshaman.com for a complete walkthrough of the shammy epic quest, also has tactics.

No, they cannot be MQ'd as they are part of the shaman epic quest. Turning them in would get you nowhere because you have to have sufficient TrueSpirit faction in order to take the next step in the epic.

Besides, what's the point of trying to MQ three items that all drop from the same MoB? You're not going to get the first book without the other two, so trying to MQ it would mean killing Ghosk twice and getting two sets of books. Pointless.

Not completely pointless. In the last guild I was in we didn't have any shammie on one raid and the guild leader looted the books. Next raid we had two who needed the books, so they each looted a few and MQ'd the others off fromt he guild leader. Granted, a rare and unusual circumstance, but I was glad I thought of it to save one of them some trouble. :)

Both Lords are part of the shaman epic quest. You have to first gather up the reports in City of Mist and give them to the Sentinal Spirit in EJ. Then, you kill Lord Ghiosk and loot the three books he drops and return those to another Sentinal Spirit. Then, a few more steps and you return to kill Lord Rak Ashir.

Myself a 53rd level warrior, 53rd Cleric, 52nd Enchanter took Lord Ghiosk down, but took 10 min. Enchanter tried to slow him 7 times with no success, and tried to dot him 4 times with no success. Cleric tried an undead dot, and was informed that 'this spell only works on undead'. So he was bugged today, or he is NOT undead. A 60th Druid passing by did get a epic dot and a bracer dot to stick once each, other attempts of the bracer fail to land on Lord Ghiosk. Cleric healed my at least 7 times with Complete Heal. He did con even to me with my 53rd level, 4000 HP Warrior. I did notice any AoE damage and neither did anyone else. Dropped 3 books and the Mace. Good luck with him.

Ghiosk drops the three books for the shaman epic, I believe every time he is killed. Have killed him 3 times now and books every time.

Neh Ashir is the other epic mob and she is AFTER the trip to The Hole.

1 lvl 49 pet was sufficient to bring it down with heals. Had 2 pets but one got bugged when Ghiosk fell in the water. Left the tanks & rest of raid group to sit behind. Boring, but easy and I got my books...
Wacked him twice.

Joined up with a guild that was raiding the Reavers. Main assist was 52 SK, also had 50+ ranger, 44 monk (me), and high 40's rogue for melee. Casters included 44 shaman, epic cleric, and chanter. (Wasn't my guild, don't know all the numbers, sorry).

Anyway, Ghiosk popped after the 3rd reaver both times. Has lots of hitpoints, but we didn't lose any members in either fight.

Curious note: During first fight, we knocked him into the water. He would attack the main assist when she was in range, but would stop attacking completely if she left melee range. My 44 monk ended up doing the last 300+ points of damage to him alone, and never pulled aggro. Anyone else have this happen?
