As of July 17, 2012, General V`ghera still gives Guise of the Coercer if you give him Stanos' Head.

Took out the general last night on Drinal - no quill - i think it is easier/more time efficient to redo the first parts of the epic rather than camping phinny in kk as she is hardly ever up. So that's what i'm doing!

Coercer Q dropped the Robe of the Ishva so that's one less robe I'll have to get.

I just love all the people saying how "insanely" easy this guy is. This guys day was about 7 years ago. Back then he was extremely tough, and took a raid force to beat. Just pulling that house was extremely tough. Don't bother posting about how awesome you are and how gimp he is 7 years and 12 expansions later. You will never understand how godly and awesome this fight was back in the day when your mt was sporting Yaks and lucky to have 5000 hps. You're not cool.

Never did this before today. Im a paladin, and friend needed a hand. So we go to do turn in and run over house the undead where u need to hand in your box too. When that happend we got all them and had to evac loosing the druid. Second attempt we do turn in and general spauns then some how IVU droped and all house agro's and again we evac paladin down. Ok so now im sure we can do it just need to get general alone. So apparently during the recovery he walk out of the house. Got back with my necro , dots loaded and ready to drop the General soon as i set them off to do so. Running back, see him hes all alone. So now friend comes as her ranger attacks i dot the living heck out of it he droped like a ton of bricks. Hes a push over im not time geared or any of that stuff. The write ups are not real good for this so thought i would post this . Suggest spaun him. See what he does wait till he wonders off. If h no move get a monk or a necro or sk pulll him out fd wait till they all go way and tag em away from the mobs around him in the house. Simple as cake after that .

Good luck.

Are you really that clueless? You must be "super leet"!!

Want to see a fight that lasts even less than 20 seconds? How about you and your buddy try to take him on at level 60 instead of level 75? LOL. I'd pay to watch the General own your sorry *** in about three seconds. Of course, you wouldn't even get near him because his lackeys would mow you down without even breaking a sweat.

Pretty funny to see all of these clueless posters talk about how "overrated" the General is when, like a poster above said, they're taking him on 7-8 years and countless expansions after he first came on the scene. General V. is an old world mob, and he was a complete badass back in the day. With a 60 level cap, an entire raid force was required to take him down, and even with a 65 cap, a skilled group working together was needed at the very least.

Please do your homework before you go talking about how overrated all of these old-world mobs are, because they would have owned your *** had you played them at the level the developers intended.

took a small guild raid force with me. Enchanter, Necro, 2 Clerics, Druid, Shaman, Bstlord, Warrior, and of course the rogue. first off aggro on the DE's was a major issue. the rogue was not in a grp or the raid for aggro reasons. We all sat at the Rivervale zoneline and pulled to there. the Ench tried to charm Coercer Qioul, but she wouldnt have it. lol. slowly the necro pulled the DEs to the zone line and the raid killed them one by one EXCEPT for Coercer Qioul. When she was the only one left, everyone zoned out to break aggro. even the rogue had to zone out cause she got aggrod. the Necro zoned back in and FDd after Coercer Qioul hit him a few times. She just stood there. then the rogue zoned back in and handed in sealed box into Coercer Qioul successfully! Everyone in the raid zoned back into Kithicor and waited for the General. with everyone just wailing on him, nuking him, and dotting him, he went down faster than a philly hooker!

Not sure why people say the exchange MUST be to
the Coercer, probably notes from "back in the day" when
the Chaplain used spawn also. (I remember that!)

I typically pull and kill off the Advisor and the Coercer
in the hopes they also drop robes.

I leave the Adjutant up, clear all the skellies,
then sneak up behind the Adjutant to use the box
to despawn him and summon the General.

My guild took him out last night. 2 groups, average level around 58. Tank was a 70 Ranger, MH was a 70 cleric. Thrown in were some necros, shamans, beastlords, a warrior, and myself, a 59 rogue.

To clear the house, we first tried using the Harmony line of spells. This ended with a wipe - the aggro range was bigger than the spell range!. Then we tried a new tactic. Every caster equipped with root was assigned to a darkelf. The house was pulled and the darkelves were individually rooted. The melees then ran from mob to mob, finishing them off individually.

Once the Brigadier was the only one left alive, the entire force zoned to Rivervale, then I zoned back out in sneak/hide. The force followed.

The ranger used assist/archery to clear the greenie ghouls in the house so my turn-in would be uninterrupted. Secret-handshake with Brigadier, gave him the box. Pulled Brig and V`Ghera to the open arms of my waiting, bored, ready-for-action guild. He didn't live long.

The main melees worked on the General, a few others kept the Brigadier busy. General went down quick, then the Brig. No deaths were sustained. Many thanks to Dirty Boys for their invaluable help!

Now, just to get that %&*$ing Shining Metallic Robe. *sigh* time to park my rear in Lower Guk.

This fellow is insanely easy. 70 Magician with Raid Buffed Pet, and 70 Druid. Both DoDh / CoA Equipped. Air pet tanked, Myself (Mage), and Druid pretty much chain nuked both out of boredom. Healed pet 4 times total throughout entire fight, he was tanking both Coercer and General. Dispell does help with pulling General. Total gimp. Grats my lowbie 32 SK on Ashenbone Shield!

Duo'd him today. Rogue friend on last piece. Didnt seem too hard. DoDh/CoA Mage (me) and Druid (best friend) run over there. My Air Pet was fully raid buffed, estimating 8k-10k hp(?). Pulled with Annul Magic, only got General and Coercer. I think my pet resisted the DT, or Bulwark of Calliav absorbed it. Pet required 4 heals in the 2-3 minute fight. 3 Renewal of Jerikors (one was to cure Wind of Tashania cast by the Coercer), and 4th heal was Ancient:Chlorobon by Druid. Coercer has about 12k hp give or take 1k. 4 Spear of Ros (3 3119's, and a 5.1k crit) killed her. Hit me for a max of like 162, but hit fast. Druid used Ancient:Glitterfrost on General, nuked him down before I could kill Coercer. Yeah, hes that easy.

Dropped Rogue Epic Piece, Mithral Dagger, Tier Dal Adamantite Breastplate (plate) Ashenbone Shield, Elegant Darkwood Katana. My Shadow Knight got the Shield, lvl 32 its fantastic!
Coercer dropped Robe of the Ishva (Grats my brother's rogue, be seeing General again), Tier Dal Enchanted Staff, Tier Dal Adamantite Chainmail (Chain Tunic), SUPER Congrats to my Mage, who now has a Chain BP!

The rogue in our guild sees that the Coercer has a different robe on, so we plan on killing her during lunch break, to at least get the robe out of the way. Didnt think we were gonna try the General, but then.. figgered what the ****.

Took down General, and he drops a Quill. Lucky rogue, and we have a spare Kedge Robe MQ waiting also.

If you are a person of limited resources all you realy need are 3 people. Today we did it with 3 , a lvl 70 cleric me, a lvl 70 ranger, and a lvl 69 rogue was a walk in the park. We had the ranger and cleric pax the mobs and the ranger pull one dark elf to hhp zl. The ranger rooted it and ran far out of range i then paxed the mob for the rogue to do turn in . Had the ranger run back to help kill the mob we did the turn into. We left the turn in mob at hhp zl and went back to pax and pull the general. We pulled the general all the way to rivervale zl and had the ranger kite him. General V'ghera does summon but with heals the summons are no problem , the ranger wasnt able to snare with aa snare but when he used his don snare that he bought for 120 crystals it never failed. Ranger bowed him and kept argo and the rogue played with his behind and the cleric me set back and watched the kids play :)

62 paladin with only 1 miti AA tanked him very easily, even with life tap proc.

Regen: moderate, about 1% per tic

Hits: 250'ish doubles

Spells: Harm Touch, Invoke Fear, Lifetap Proc (500dd) Summon PC

HP: 32,000

Method; Kill all but one DEF in the house, sneak hide up to last one, drop hide, open trade window, activate hide, complete trade. I recommend the DEF in the NW corner since you can do hand in from outside the building. Once General spawns (back to you) walk away. Pacify the remaining DEF. The Puller (NEC / SK / PLD / CLR) uses Harm Shield or Divine Favor etc. General will waste his Harm Touch against the invulnerability shield. Pull him away from the pacy'd mob (leave that one up so other rogues can do their T/I later too, the DEF are on 8 hour respawn timer, don't be a ****)

Resists: General is very resistant to snares and nukes. If you have it available use wizard / mage low resist nukes, and the DON slows with -resist counter.

Add-Note: Supernal Elixir (600 Hp HoT) is sufficient to keep the MT alive during fight with few other heals.

Pulled all of the DE's but the Brigader, sneak/hide behind him. break hide, put box in tradewindow, rehide and hit trade. General spawned but did not see me. Cleric pulled him back to camp and he went down without us breaking a sweat. Did not drop the quill.

Ok things went a lil crazy today. Did the turn in like it said on the quest page (to the Coercer) and she handed it back to me saying she had no need for this item. So I'm wondering does it have to be turned into any one of the DE's EXCEPT her or what? Also can this be done anytime or does it have to be a certain game time for turn in?

Thanks in advance
spawn time on de's
# Nov 06 2004 at 9:39 PM Rating: Decent
just killed the general with a group of 5: me (68 rogue), 66 shaman, 65 ench, 67 druid, and a 67 wizard. Another group was there and had already killed everything in the house, so we just waited for them to finish, then spawned the general and got him single, despite 3 undead in the house atm. On an afterthought, we pulled the other de (tasi v'ghera) to see if the ench could charm her, but he couldn't so we killed her while we kited the general, then took him out. We ended up having the wizard tank while the druid and sham chain healed and i did duelist. He ran at about 15%. No casualties and no quill, and because the other group had killed all the other de's, no robes either.

Anyway was wondering about the respawn on the de's in the house. I've checked 3 sites and no one seem to think it imporant.

I've been playing around with the DE house for almost a week now. Rogue got the General's pouch, but as usual, no Quill dropped. Been killing the Coercer and Advisor in hopes that the Kedge robe drops.

When we killed the General was just 68 Beast, and my 67 ench and 67 druid. Beast was about 7k buffed. Pretty easy kill, druid has most healing AA's finished, that helped. I had my rogue logged on as well, but as he's 52, was more like a whiffle bat than a dps in the group.

What i've found about that house.. is that the number of DE's there is definitely a pain, but what's makes them far more lethal is that they all have WR (70% haste) on them when the Coercer is around.

If you're dealing with pulling the house, make sure you dispell the incoming mobs. Makes their DPS much much more managable.

My druid has harmonied a few, pulled a few, and when I got the adds snared, pulled the non-snared Coercer or Advisor to near RV zone, dispelled, and easily killed them. This technique also very useful for feeding a group one at a time. Bards with FM are far more effective pullers obviously, but you deal with what you have.

If you have friends that are heading to Kith to do General, you can get there 30 mins early, get the Coercer out and kill her. By the time the group is ready to kill, WR will have faded off the mobs.

Hope this helps,

Obviously these old epic guys get easier with newer kit, expansions, levels etc...

Taken down on Vallon Zek with a 68 Troll SK, 69 DE Mage/52 Rogue, 67 DE Necro, 52 Ogah War, 52 DE Cleric (purism aint ded yet omg!)

As the cleric I didnt actually need to heal, SKs Lifetaps would have kept him alive...almost ;) Since I was there I had to do my bit *grins*

Pet pulled the building with rogue acting as targetter, cleared all but one, spawned big guy, went as clockwork. Job done :)
PS: No fancy EP gear here, some nice GoD drops but nothing crazy uber, so this guy is doable solo without as much grief as some peeps suggest ;)

Ok some rangom rogue asked me to pull this encounter for her (56bard I am)... heres my experience

we had 2full groups... 2 clerics.. 3 tanks.. and rest were DPS with multiple druids wizzys a chanter and others...

first of its like impossible to target some of the mobs inside the house so I used my bind sight on one of the mobs to target others then paci and pull...

1st pull I accidentaly pulled whole house so had to zone

2nd pull pacied all Dark Elves and pulled all the trash

3rd pull pacified all... pulled 1... 2 came.. so I zoned and tagged one we killed him

they have about 16k HP and are pretty easy if u single pull em

did same thing till there was 1 Dark elf left..

rogue did turn in general poped right inside the house... I pacified the dark elf and easily pulled teh general..

he has 30,299 HP according to my parse Max hits for 285..

killed him in 42 seconds was very easy.. in those 42 seconds he did 4,441 damage to our tank which is about half HP of a 65 tank... so theoretically this cane be doen without any healers

hardest part about this enounter is single pulling the house other than that its a cake

Ok so my guild just did him last night. Was about 15-17 people. So first pull, most of the house came...if not all...and a few people got wacked. We regrouped...rezzed the fallen...and moved to RV zone and pulled to there. Pulled again...this time 4 came. I got killed along with a few others BUT we killed 3 of them. So unlike most people we had the Advisor as the only named DE in the house. Well guildie rogue friend goes to do his turn in. General pops whacks rogue then monk pulls to group. He is a punk!!! pouch drops. Grats Kuriosity! So I (55 Rogue) go do my turn in. Hand the pouch...general spawns but I didnt get aggro! Whacked him again and guess what?? Drops Cazic Quill!!!!!! W00t. Another epic rogue on Tarew Marr!!! Thanks Polywog for tankin.

Oh yeah. House has a HUGE aggro range. Bard and Chanter both tried to get close enough to lull the house and got aggro both times. Hardest part is getting the house spawns solo. The general is cake.

Completed tonight with a 65 Warrior, Monk, Enchanter and a 53 Cleric. We pulled the entire camp solo via Pacification, except for the Brigadier. Once the camp was clear, the Rogue turned the book in to the Brigadier and he switched back over to his Enchanter. Pacified the Brigadier and pulled the general. It was an extremely simple kill done in this manner. The Warrior has about 6500 unbuffed HPs and was only buffed with 53 Cleric buffs. As long as you have the tank damage shielded (Project Fire Elemental and Feedback), lock in Defensive and you're set! Hope this helps!

Maybe not the best place to post this but just a few lines to tell how we dropped him. We had a necro use snare for one mob in the house, then as the rest of the mobs would agro, he would train them to WC and our secondary puller would tag the one that was slowed. We killed in this manner and kept the Brig mezzed through the kills. Then we all zoned and lost agro so Brig would pop back at the house. After agro cleared we set up right at house and did turn in, killed General and then Brig. Force was about 14 peeps I think around lvl 61 average. Pretty quick kill once we got the pull down.

Just wanted to let all of you who try to take him on this little bit of info that I'm not seeing in posts. Whispering Winds and Ill Tempered Sea Bass (and friends of both guilds) joined raids to do a double turn in. After clearing the house except 1, our Rogue went to do turn in. YOU NEED TO CLEAR ALL YARD TRASH...Rogue lost his box because a zombie / skelly was in the Generals spawn point. The other Rogue got his and the General went down quick as usual. He did drop Edge of the Nightwalker but no Quill.

Good luck :)

I was on my way to the POK from Highkeep earlier tonight and was traveling along the wall in here. It was the first time I have been in Kithicor while it was night time, but I didn't think much of it. I reached the entrance of Rivervale and saw a few skeletons so I stopped and waited for them to leave since I am only a lvl 27 mage. Once clear, I went inside and turned the corner, and somehow this guy was in there and killed me off in 3 hits (with the feeble 460 hp I have). I don't know how he got there, but it looked like 5 other mobs were in there as well. Not even a chance for me to move.... :(

Just finished this on the Nameless Server 10 ppl 45 seconds and a Rogue had his Epic (58 Rogue, 55 Pally, 55 Shaman, 52 Nec, 65 Cleric, 65Pally, 51 Ranger, 65 Pally, 61 Chanter and 57 Wiz) ... I was reading these posts as we gathered in Kith and feeling a lump in my throat wondering how many people i had brought to thier doom. However it went off very smooth no deaths and besides the Initial hp loss when the rogue did the turn-in and pull ... no-one got below 80% health. it is better to go in worried and come out relieved than the other way around.

Helped kill this guy for rogue epic. Fight lasted about 15 seconds or so and no deaths. We had around 18 or 19 people high 50's/low 60's mostly. He dropped a breastplate, the piercing weapon, the sk shield, the piece for epic, and the 2HS weapon. We had a 65 monk pulling and MA was a 65 bard. It was a pretty fun fight. There wasn't a full spawn so we only had to deal with the General. I got hit 4 or 5 times when he took a liking to me. Hardest he hit me was 290. (I'm a 61 monk) Good luck, rogues, this guy shouldn't give any problems if you have the manpower.

Oneshot you are a clown, on Jun 9th he posted on the page for highest lvl mob in like 20 zones, saying he either soloed them, or duoed them and that they were all easy.

No one is impressed, even if it were true. Go away pls.

Uh he only pops when a Rog turns in his sealed box to a dark elf.. so either you are lying or you highjacked someones epic quest. But I think you are lying anyway - highest hit 206? Possible but unlikely. Not saying the right 3 people couldnt do it, but its hard to believe you 'looked on track what you know old General'

I would believe you if your magelo profile is accurate, but I dont think that is either

Talk about the luck of Innoruuk !! I was running through Kith Forest one morning and stumbled upon this dead General. I quickly looked around and hit a 'who' and find I was only person in the zone so I stop to see whats left on this poor souls body. Low and behold ..a NO DROP 'Ashenbone Shield' ShadowKnight use only. Praise Innoruuk I say to myself as I lift this item off his rotting corpse and run like **** to the zone line. Just want to thank whoever happened to have killed this guy becasue, at Lvl 24 this is the best item I have gotten. It happened on a GM event night with the werewolves in Commons. It's such an awesome lucky find I may just keep it equipped for life regardless of if I outgrow it. Nepolian on Rodcet Nife.
Our Encounter

We have killed the general twice, dropped the quill one time. First time did it with about 17 people some 60s most mid to low 50s, second time laid him out with only 14 people 60+s and mid to high 50s, had an epic rogue already. We have one planned death each time, that is our pulling ranger who maintains agro on the general using weaponsheild near the end to survive long enough so our 61 war gains a nice chunk of agro. After that with the general beating on MT, the healers spammed small heals, while I (60 necro) dropped every dot I had, sent pet, and FD'ed. Rest move around the general to prevent excessive pushing, tash/malo/mala, slow, dump at 25-30% life, toast with MT usually never dropping below 50% and our 3-5 healers ending up with about 70% mana. Biggest pain is waiting for Coercer to spawn for the hand-in and rezing unfortunate rogue agroed by the good General.

His MR is significant, most of my LTs were partially resisted with 1/8 hitting full and 1/4 being fully resisted. Splurt and pyro worked fine. His DR and PR are significant as well. I couldn't debuff him using Scent of Terris. 3 attempts were all resisted. Most poison based DoTs were fully resisted as well. I think I was able to nuke him fine with Cold based nukes.

Max hit about 300, dual weilds, double attacks (effective quad) and taps for 500 very quickly. If you have ~1.3k hp and get agro, kiss your **** goodbye. First second will drop you well within low hp agro limits and he'll finish you off without a thought.

Ok, I had never done this fight but was tasked with leading a raid to kill him. After a couple unsuccessful pull attempts using 62 monk FD and me, 59 ranger tag (to clear all but one DE at the house), we tried a different approach.

A level 65 cleric and myself sat on the hill just to the West of the house. He pacified all but one, and I pulled the one that was not pacified using DD or arrow. The raid party waited at the HHP zone. Using this method we easilly pulled every one single.

Once there is one DE left, the rogue did the turn in and the cleric pacified the hand in DE while I pulled the general.

Conrary to popular belief, he is not as difficult as a god. That's just plain silly. You don't need a CHeal rotation, but one cleric may not be able to keep up unless you land slow early. Just have secondary healers cast low aggro heals from the outset to take some pressure off the main healer.

Is this guy slowable with a Shammy/Chanter?
And... I see the Cazic Quill isn't mentioned in known loot. Is he not dropping that any longer?

I attempted to land Turgur's on this guy throughout the entire fight while healing until he decided to summon me and take me out of the picture. Next time around I hit him with Insiduous Decay and then Plague of Insects to slow.............landed first attempt. Victory

Im seeing that he Life Taps for 500. Ive read he Harm Touches also.. but have yet to read exactly for how much.. so.. How much does he HT for?

He is very magic resistant. Necro level 58 got resisted at 50 percent of his lifetaps. Fire resistant he is easy. Don't resists to much there and after resistance debuff you are good. Have fun

As far as epics go they werent introduced until Kunark so technically hes not really an old world mob and should have decent AC. As if a Kunark Mob.

Stanos is the Rogue guild leader in Highhold Pass. He can only be summoned by someone with very high faction in the Rogues guild (Usually the Rogue doing their epic).

He's an old world MOB. Of course his AC will be lower than what you would be used to in Kunark & Velious. He's still arguably the hardest old world MOB in the game (closely followed by Stanos, Vox, and Nagafen).

As epics were added with Kunark, I would expect him to be of a par with Kunark creatures, even though he is to be found in the 'Old World'

This woulda been June 22, 02 and on Xegony. We took General for a couple Rogues last week, and I noticed something I couldn't remember from the last time I fought him. Since when did he hit a 500 dd (We think Lifetap) Proc? He laid a beating on us with that thing. "Your soul has been consumed" was the casting message I believe. Like the topic says, is that new or am I on crack? He was tough before, now he hits hard and fast and procs a big damage spell...

BTW, for those of you that care we did manage to take him down twice (3rd and 4th tries) for the two Rogues that were ready.

Took him out 6 times on Aug. 5th. He hit me for 200, 300ish and had that 500 point lifetap ("You feel as though your soul is being consumed").

All of that damage (around 1k) happened in less than one second.

Anyway, yeah, he's proccing that lifetap now. Our main tank was getting a 5 second Cheal rotation and we had no problems. I'd say the General is dealing out about 6k every 10 seconds now (on fully buffed tanks)
