Strategies for Neh ashiir

Best bet is to climb up the magical road and into the sky past the 2 locked doors.Go around and touch the wall and try to go throgh, and eventually you will find a invisible wall and stairs leading up.Keep going up and open the locked door go through and wipe everything out and keep going untill youg et to where there is a broken road and a locked door in front.This is where Neh'Ashiir spawns regularly.

Doing it anywhere else is harder trust me.

Did this mob many years ago the hard way after several raids.
After I got the Mage Epic I came back to try a trick where you could stand on ground floor under the last sky castle and "/pet attack a black reaver", pull off pet then lowbie nuke to pull reaver down below. Seems to have been nerfed now.
However, I did find that I could go up sky ramps, lev over to final castle, poke head through door on mount then do a similar trick.
Fun trip for a 105 but I expect it would work for lower levels.

He can heal himself; found out the hard way.

Spawn time was just over an hour as of 29 OCT 2017 on Agnarr server. Trio'd him with epic mage, 50 druid and 47 enchanter. Once slow landed epic pet handled it fine. Was going great until he started healing (Healing Touch). Went from 30% back to 70%. Enchanter memmed stun spell and just watched for it. Was cake after that.

Information from 2013 that said the Neh'ashiir reaver takes 2 hours to respawn is not accurate as of 2017. It is a long spawn, and while camping it with my Mage I'd set a 2 hour timer and then come back, but on a lark after killing him twice I came back after 1h10m and the reaver was back, this Neh'ashiir dropped my epic item so I didn't kill another so I don't know the exact spawn time, other than it's more than 30 minutes, but no more than 1h10m. So it's a good bit shorter than the 2 hours it used to be.

Are you playing on a progression server? Progression server spawn timers are quicker than live servers.

Possibly the stone key you got from that guy is for http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=1202

Let us know if it is and I'll change it for that guy.

For those who have characters without a mount.. Ranger can pop you into wolf form, run into door and drop illusion to get through with no problems. I would imagine long-distance forms via illusions work

Neh Ashiir soloable by Mage lvl 65
# Jul 25 2016 at 10:19 PM Rating: Decent
2 posts
So here's the long-winded way to do this (thanks to previous posters - I kinda just summarize it all).

First, watch this youtube vid as he's pretty hard to find:

' How to Find - Neh`Ashiir '- YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cB2UArG5QY

I just did it as a lvl 65 Mage for the epic piece at the third tower. Here's how a Mage can solo it: Note that the Stone Key you get on ;Captain of the Guard' (just inside the first gates and to the right) only get you in the main building at the back and NO KEY in the zone opens the last two room to Neh Ashiir. Oh, and on the main zone level, you can invis past the Black Reaver in the main building at the back to go upstairs by Veil of Elements (invis) but kill any undead outside with your pet as you move along.

When you get way up the ramp, the nest part applies:

When you get upstairs, Veil of Elements (invis) and sick pet on the trash just before the 2nd building (locked). Be a bit extra careful of undead as they see through your invis. Clear out that area then stand right nest to the door to pull any creatures just inside the door & sick pet on em.

Ok, here's cool part #1 (of 2) Send pet to any undead that path near that same building but on the other path, the one leading to the 3rd building (so they dont attack you when you cross to there invisible). If pet gets lost (mine didnt), just Summon Pet. Use Levitate (Summon Ring of Levitation). Stand right on the pillar (of the path wall) by the door of the 2nd building, face the building and start running towards the other path leading out of the same building (past the locked door). You'll end up there but STAY FACING THE BUILDING as you run, kinda -you won't lose much height then. This is essential: stay in 1st person view ie don't scroll back because you'll drop faster for some reason.

Clear out the path leading to the 3rd building but have Levitation up as there is a crack in the pavement by the 3rd building (this crack goes right across the path so you jump, fall, or levitate).

After clearing, clear a mob on the path around the 3rd building, and mob just inside the door by standing near it and sicking pet on it.

OK cool part #2 (you need levitation, kinda and NEED a horse). Go back on the path to the corner. Run towards the door and right into the door with your horse. As you get right to the door, click off the horse (unsummon) and you'll end up right inside the room!

Neh Ashiir and his placeholder, the Black Reaver, don't aggro just inside the door. Use Smmmon Companion spell to get your pet inside. I guess you can also Call of the Hero anyone else in your group, too!

OK, at lvl 65 Mage, the Reaver is easy but Nev (or whatever his name is, cons LBLUE). He's way tougher than LBLUE (I suggest Binding just outside CoM).

I found him rly hard with Water pet (had to gate and retry w/ Air Pet), hes an Enchanter w/ Complete Heal so USE AIR PET! Also, have KEI or Clarity up because he's tough on your pet.

Bingo Bango -Mage soloable!

Yes being able to illusion/mount through doors was fixed not long ago. Now you will need keys for locked doors or have rogue/bard lock pick them.

Just did this again to work on my mage epic 1.0.

Used levitate to get through the second corner on the way up.
Killed everything around the top tower.
Sent in Eye of Zomm to target "a black reaver" and backed off the pet to pull him out.
The after the reaver dropped, 7-9 more golumms popped serially after each kill (honestly I lost track and thought the mob had been changed or something).
Neh'Ashirr popped outside after that.

I have failed to get the Eye target trick to work again despite the 30+ tries so I switched to the mount/dismount routine at the door to get through. Who can find a rogue anymore ?

Second time I killed the black reaver, Neh'Ashirr immediately popped. (inside)

Oh and don't forget the false floor inside :)

Try having a player shroud into a rogue (I.E. Goblin or other shrouds). The shroud can lockpick anything as long as it's high enough level and has lockpicks. Just purchase some from the tinker merchants in PoK.

Like others have said. 2 hour respawn on the a black reaver. I got here the old fashioned way using a rogue to pick the locks. Once in the room i bound my 2 mages here. Left a few times using origin to hunt down other mobs that drop loot for mage epic. Like others have said Neh'Ashiir spawns at the end of the reaver killing cycle. I have seen upwards of 5 reavers in that cycle. 4 Neh kills so far and i have yet to see the torch or shield. So far he has always dropped the Key of Torsis and the Woodman's Staff. EDIT: 12 kills. Finally dropped Dread Shield of the Slayer on the 6th kill but im not after that. Was also the first time he didn't drop the Woodman's Staff. Still dropped the key. 7th kill cycle also had 7 a black reaver. This is really getting lame though. Maybe i should try to trigger the shaman version.

I didn't bother going to skyfire mountains and then go through the process of trying to get Jennus Lykobar to spawn so i could talk to him and then go about the task. Maybe that is what i need to do. Some sort of hidden trigger to get Neh'Ashiir to actually drop the torchs. Or perhaps if i killed her using a different class. She would drop it. I am not sure but i am willing to give other options a try. 12 kills and she finally dropped the 2 torchs i needed. I ended up getting 5 jade reavers in the process. I didn't try to talk to Jennus Lykobar first or kill Neh with a different class if anyone reading this was wondering though i was starting to seriously consider it till i read a post further down from Baneluk saying that he had to kill Neh 18 times to get the torch.

No, you dont have to see Jennus first, I'm looking for him now, awhile after I did Neh Ashiir. I got super lucky and he had the Torch on my first kill of him.

If its any consolation, Burning Embers (Mage Epic piece) took me about 12 hours of constant (but easy for lvl 65 Mage) kills in the Burning Woods.

thought I'd add some notes to this..

Make sure you have SoW or a fast mount on when you leviatate past the first locked door off the pillars. otherwise you'll drop down and not have enough speed to get on the ledge.

when you get to the third door.. cast form of bear and make sure you have levitate on, as the floor inside the locked tower is fake and you fall right through. pound your face into the door with the bear illusion on, and then remove the illusion. you should glitch right through the door.

piece of cake

little tip for those of you goin after Neh Ashirr. after you get the key for the first locked door and get to the second there is no key but if you get on a mount walk into the door and as your moving forward click off your mount and youll go right thru. hope this helps

I needed to clear this for my Shaman epic, and did it solo at 63. Here's the method I used...

First I repeated the black dire and gem turn in steps to max faction, instead of doing the CoM pages camping. Much quicker.

After I was maxed out with the final dire turn in, I came to CoM. Killed the captain for the first key. Then I cleared through the throne area, and headed up to the platforms. Platform 2 is locked. I cast lev on myself, and leved up onto the post on the guardrail right against the building on platform 2. I ran off the side and over onto the walkway. It was easy, and I was past the first locked door.

This brought me around to the 3rd platform, and another locked door. Neh`Ashiir didn't seem to be up(No ghost noises when pressed against the door). I did "/target a_black_reaver". It worked, and now I had the mob in the room on the far side of the door targeted. I sent my pet to attack. Pet pushed against the door for a few seconds, then popped through and engaged. As soon as he had aggro, I back up and spam the button to back off the pet. After a few seconds he pops through the door, pulling the reaver back to me. I dispatch the reaver, and Neh`Ashiir spawns. /target Neh`Ashiir, and send in the pet. Pull back the pet after aggro, and now we're fighting outside on the walkway.

Mission accomplished, no rogues required, and no ridiculous shrinking or illusion nonsense involved.

ok i just finished reading all the posts

i lot of info there-- some good and some misleading. I have killed her a lot fo times for different epics and just to get the key so i can get jade reavers for my toons. also wanted the shield off the lord which tributes for 3k and looks cool in my houses.

First of all some lore: she is the daughter of Lord Rak 'Ashiir and was taken from her home when a minion of caziac thule came to visit. he spent the rest of his life in morning for her rather than tending to his kingdom which led to his loss of his wife and his counsellor and the downfall of the city.

keys: first you can get a key to the golem room off the captain of the guard. once it is on your keyring you will always have access. this is the only key that is really important until you loot the key to the elevator off her. the key to the elevator is temporary but you can put it in a house and it keeps very well.

locked doors: there are 3 locked doors -- you can get through them by casting an illusion. put your nose in the door, click the illusion to remove it, and you will enter the room.

after killing the golems, take the door to the right and go down the hall. it makes a turn and follow it. when you get close to the room at the end of the hall, there is an invisible door to the right of the hallway. step through it. it is best to have lev on. you will then go up a misty glass walkway to the first guard tower. follow the walkways and you will pass through two more towers, one has a locked door. you will come to a walkway that has a piece broken in the side and then it turns and you will find a broken area that leaves a gap. simply levitate over the gap and you will be at a door that is locked. this is her room.

be careful going in because if you go straight you will fall through an invisible floor. turn either way and go up the ramps to the platform. there may be one golem or there may spawn one after another. i find that if there is only one golem, she will usually aggro. if there are multiples -- one spawning as soon as the other is killed, she will not take part in the fight. get someone to lure the golems away because until she is killed they will sometimes continue to spawn. I lured them outside one day and continued to fight them for several hours until i got tired, my bags were full of jade reavers, and i gated out.

she seldom drops anything but the woodman's staff and the key. however, she seems to do better if someone is doing their epic. took only 3 kills for my mage to get her torch. now i am working on the shaman epic. she seems to have a spawn time of around 2 hours.

an earlier poster was under the impression that this is a reaver. that is a wrong assumption. the reavers are in the room and spawn. if you can get them away from her it is better since they seem to be her guardians. you have to kill them to talk to her but sometimes she will aggro when you do like she did on me today.

She is a she, not a he. When i came into the room i was attacked by the reavers. but then i couldn't give her the ring because she attacked and wouldn't take the ring, wouldn't respond to hails, and kept attacking even though mercs were on passive. began to wish my chanter was on another account hehe. anyhow, i now have to wait for the respawn and hope i can talk to her.

This fight was a real mess. After finally ducking and dodgeing through all the doors I get him to spawn. Well shortly after he is spawned he falls through the floor and my pet and merc go nuts. I end up with several adds. Well of course after he fell he got a complete heal off. So I end up fighting him in the water and after about a 10 minute fight with him chain C-healing he dropped the torch and I was very happy. Only had to kill him once.

Did this as a 65 shammie solo with a tank merc, not hard in the current climate.

One problem I did have getting to (the black reaver) Neh was getting through locked doors... I managed to levitate across the first one I encountered onto the following path.

The final room with the black reaver in is also locked. As you need the reaver, just make a shaman pet type "/target a_black"...send in the pet, get the reaver pulled to the outside (REMEMBER! set your merc to passive until he gets outside). Stomp him, Neh spawns.

I rememember reading that it'll despawn and you need to kill the enraged version or something. This isn't the case, as soon as you hand over the ring and it says "brace yourself" you can either let it buff for the sake of sportsmanship or get straight in at it!

The kill is easy, its just the hassle getting to that final area! Good luck with it :)

Of all the stupid things. There is an illusionary floor in the middle of the floating tower. I fell out of the tower and will have to get a rez, and fight my way all the way back in. When you are in the floating tower stay close to the walls.

Any Illusion that changes your size will get you through a locked door. You should change from smaller to larger so if you have a small body illusion then clicking it off will get you through the door.

I got the goblin illusion mask from the Christmas quests this year so I clicked it on, walked up to the door and then clicked it off and was able to walk forward through the door.
