This mob and Amontehepna both chain cast spin stun. Does not appear to be resistible in PoTime PoP era gear.

The spell is Magi Curse (added above in the mob information) and it indeed cannot be resisted at all.

Spawns in big crypt after killing Amontehepna. Killed her on second try molo'ing with a 47 Warrior. First time the other two named on this floor spawned right next to me along with a bunch of little mobs. Second time when I killed her I pulled her into hall to fight her.

8+ clears of the floor for me. Started at Cara's spawn, she was not up. Killed Amontehepna in the hall south of Cara's spawn (first time I had seen this mob in all my clears). Ran back and Cara was spawned.
Lucky me

How do you kill her?

I am thinking maybe I need to alternate a stun with Banish Undead to take her down to prevent her from casting her whirl and heal spells.

I buffed up my disease and magic resists on this floor because of mummies and shadows and THOUGHT the magic resist might help against Cara, but her spin stun is unresistable, so you could be level 85 and still get spun while she takes you down. How the heck are you supposed to get the key?

Who has solo'd her as a cleric and how did you do it?

In my experience trying to solo her (not as a cleric but with a druid and then with an enchanter) you have to rely on a combination of pets, damage shield (in cleric case this would include reverse DS) and ONLY fast casting spells if you are trying to cast at all.

The Magi Curse is unresistable but you are not stuck spinning the entire time, the DoT/mana-drain component lasts longer than the stun portion. As mentioned, you can stop the spinning by sitting but you are still stunned and unable to cast until the spin-stun portion of the effect wears off. Although the Magi Curse is unresistable, the spin-stun can be resisted, if you have Stun Resist AA or gear equipped you will occasionally see the message that you shake off the stun effect. She does recast it over and over again though, which is why you are kept spinning on a spit while she carves you up with one or both of her daggers.

The biggest nukes always have the longest casting times, but many DoTs and stuns are short enough casting time (especially with focus and buffs) that you can squeeze one off each time between spin-stuns. For healing, likewise don't try to rely on any spell that takes longer than 3 seconds to cast. Your casting DPS should come from DoTs (undead mob here should be perfect for cleric DoTs), the more the merrier, stack 'em on, one each time you can cast. Pet dps (hammer, shiny bob, whatever) will be able to chip away at her while you hold her attention. On top of that you can try to stack as many forms of DS as you can. Druid get some nice AA, enchanter are limited to fire elemental form and 11 point feedback buff, cleric can use spell line Mark of Kings (low casting time) and everyone can use skinspikes potions.

At some point when she is low on hp she will likely stop chain stunning you and heal herself. At this point you could try to burn her down or use the break to heal yourself or prepare for the renewed assault when she goes back on the attack. With lvl 65 characters it can be close, sometimes only winning with the aid of a Steadfast Servant or the use of Staunch Recovery.

It took forever to get this witch to spawn. I killed her once and keyed my warrior, then had to figure out how to spawn her again to key my cleric.

I spent a long time clearing the floor several times. I killed Narmak Berekka and the maggot infested flesh several times in order to get Amontehepna to spawn so I could repop Cara Omica.

Random placing for the other names, but Cara spawns at the same spot.

The wretch dropped a Sorcerous Bowl.

Have soloed her easy 3 times tonight. First time there was a bat in the room, not sure why... After the fight with Cara I killed the bat, vampire came out killed him too... then Cara respawned again hehe. So I got 2 embalming daggers. After I got done beating the crap out of Tserrina and puking from all of the spinning, I decided to chec k out cara again. She dropped a bowl finally, so my mage gets to have fun. Moral of this story? She is pathetic.

Boxing my 63 pally with my 37 shammy on the 4th floor.I hear Cara casting.Havn't really explored the 4th floor so i started running around looking for her with my pally.Then i start hearing Amontehepna start casting too.To make a long story short i found Amon first so killed him.Took 5 minutes more to find Cara,killed her.Wanted to see if there were mobs on the way to the 5th floor,there is 4 shadows.Kill them and figured i would just run back to where shammy is parked and kill whatever follows there.Get to shammy,down by the entrance,turn around and theres Cara again looking at me.She must have spawned within 5 minutes of each other.I guess it is possible that someone came earlier and killed Amon then left before Cara spawned.Then Amon repoped and i killed him and spawned Cara again.Only thing I can think of to explain it.

During this Firiona event, she cons red at 70, has a 1999 dmg AE, and hits for 1600 and took about 35 seconds to kill with a raid force of 35.

Not quite the mob she once was haha.

As for getting Cara Omica to spawn, she's not a random pop, and she's not on a timer - unless Amontehepna is, because the way to get Cara to spawn is by killing Amontehepna. I play on a low-population server, and was the only person in ToFS (62 NEC, 25AAs) when I got my key to level 5. Cara wasn't up, and I crawled all around level 4 find Amontehepna. Eventually stumbled into him, and the next line after "Gabekn has slain Amontehepna!" was "Cara Omica begins to cast a spell." All I had to do was crawl my way back around to her room, and then I had my key and the bowl (you can see it in her hand when she's carrying it). I know she's undead because I a cast shackle of spirit on her. She also has more than the 3K hp I saw mentioned somewhere because I Neurotoxined her for the full 1270, and it took her down less than a quarter of her HP. She also can completely heal herself.

well i m used to pass trough TOFS to kill the nameds who are up for money loot .
and what i can say about cara omina is i never camped this mob ,BUT it appears that if ,like i read on the posts ,it spawns if u kill the mummies which hang around on that floor etc etc etc ,this mob spawns alone too ,without doing anything ,it has a spawn timer too ,when i pass trough the tower ( i m often alone in the zone ) ,cara is sitting in his lile room waiting for me .... it spawns like every 5 or 6 hours ,but i m not really sure ,only thing i can say ,is it takes hours for it to repop and my advise is if u wanna kill it ,well just pass 3 or 4 times /day ,it ll be up at least 2 times on the 4 (if nobody killed it sure )
this mob has about 5 k hp ,i use 2 times my agnarr s thunder ( 2K 600 nuke )to kill it ,and after the first blast it has like 2 bubble hp left
mmm today happened something funny ,i wen tin the room ,i killed it and it respawned 10 sec after on me lol ,had the bowl at first kill and the dirk at second kill ... it well means that cara is on timer + on pop list if u kill other mobs on that floor

My main is a Monk, and I just have to say that is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. This weapon is a knife, in other words a peircing weapon. If you haven't noticed, Monks don't get peircing. So are you saying that they should make this knife Monk useable? That would be great, but how would you get it to proc considering you can't equip peircing weapons? Are you saying monks should be given peircing as a skill? lol, and maybe they can give us level 50 wizard nukes while they're at it.

Think about it, this is NOT a Monk item.

Monks cannot equip it, therefore it will NEVER proc bandages when USING it. Because they CANT use it.

My Sk, Rogue, Necro, and Chanter all have them from our times there. Note also> just as with the mage spell:SUMMON BANDAGES, the number summoned is based on your level> level 40 wielding it procs a stack every time it goes off. A level 18 wielding it will only get 9 bandages a proc.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: If you DONT put the bandages in your inventory, you wont get more until you do, so if you are looking to beat up greenies to get a few stacks, as soon as it procs, put em from your cursor into a bag so next proc, you will get another stack. Otherwise you will only get one stack per kill.

If you look around you can find lots of weapons that normally a class can't equip but can still use... On the down side you have to deal with 0 skill... Not like its a great weapon for dmg anyway.

Oh, and one more little thing, bandaids are incredibly useful for all the classes, not just Monks. All pure melee can use them when there isn't a healer around, soloing hybrids can use them to bind to half and then heal the rest with their spells to save on mana, and casters can use them incase they are oom on others or themselves. In other words, you're arguement is pointless. If you want bandaids and are too poor or whatever to afford a few gold a stack, ask some Mage to summon you some and a dimensional pocket.

Soloed Cara about 5 minutes ago, level 51 mage on 7th Hammer. Only actually hairy moment was when i got 3 adds fighting a wandering MoB in the hallway coming to her. Cara was up when I got there, and a breeze to fight... Definately not 5k hps. I'd say my 950 dmg nuke took about 1/3 of her HPs, so about half that is my est, or 2.5k. Could be higher, I'm not sure what my pet's dmg output was, and health bar lag can be decieving. However, regardless, she was an easy solo. 5th floor key and mag dirk, currently waiting for the sorcerous bowl =).

Not sure if I was just lucky, but pet lost at most 1/10 hps. Probably less, by the time I thought about doing /pet report health he was at 96%. With 51 earth pet, it takes a while to do that, so maybe didnt even take a 10th of his health.

She attempted to cast a couple of heals, my pet interrupted all of them (bash), and she was dead in under 30 seconds b/c I was nuking like mad.

RE: SOLO
# Mar 07 2002 at 1:14 PM Rating: Default
If you are asking that if you could spawn Cara and then fight her, I doubt that you could do this solo, even at your level. As you will have to spawn Amhophora first then Cara. You and a shammy? Possibly, shammy might have to chain heal. And you might get a few adds.

As far as a 52 warrior solo'ing Cara and Cara alone, I think you could. Cara can heal herself though.

There are many mobs on the way to Cara and a lot of them are casters.

Question: what is your reasoning that with a 52 shammy he/she would own the tower? If you read the strategy section you'd need a full group averaging level 50 to take out Val Sera and Tserina. Yes, a 52 shammie's resist buffs would probably make the 52 warrior virtually immune to the spells, but Val Sera hits for an average of 117, has hella hps, and would likely charm any pet the shammy broke out.

Is it possible that this combo could take down the bosses? Yes. Is it likely? Without uber 60 buffs. No.
