Bristlebane the King of Thieves  

Raid Encounter
Screenshot

Uploaded July 24th, 2007

No longer the pushover of Velious era, Bristlebane is a force to be reckoned with, leader of all that is mischievous in his mind-boggling Plane.

Downed him tonight. first attempt with a 72 SK, 75 Wiz, and 80 monk failed, got him to about 15% before the adds swarmed us. Called a few more friends, had a 80 warr, 80 monk, 72 SK, 75 wizard, 73 rogue, 81 cleric. we split into two groups, all popped mercs (5 healers and 1 tank). Total dmg done was 686.5k dmg. so the 700K posted below wasn't far off.

Here is the text he says:
Bristlebane shakes with laughter and says, 'You are much stronger than I thought. Looks like I'm gonna have to use all the tricks of the trade!' He then shouts a mystical word of power and suddenly his skin begins to take on a rock like appearance.
(this is an AC boost. as reported by the 80 monk, it barely changed his hits)
Bristlebane shakes with laughter and says, 'You are much stronger than I thought. Looks like I'm gonna have to use all the tricks of the trade!' He then shouts a mystical word of power and is suddenly surrrounded by a magical glowing aura.
(at this point he is immune to magic. don't know about irresistible spells)
Bristlebane shakes with laughter and says, 'You are much stronger than I thought. Looks like I'm gonna have to use all the tricks of the trade!' He then shouts a mystical word of power and suddenly his muscles bulge with incomprehensible strength.
(this is supposed to increase his hits, as i wasn't the tank its hard to tell)
Bristlebane shakes with laughter and says, 'You are much stronger than I thought. Looks like I'm gonna have to use all the tricks of the trade!' He then shouts a mystical word of power and is suddenly surrrounded by a magical glowing aura.
(again, immune to magic)
Bristlebane shakes with laughter and says, 'You are much stronger than I thought. Looks like I'm gonna have to use all the tricks of the trade!' He then shouts a mystical word of power and suddenly his muscles bulge with incomprehensible strength.
(again, increased hits)
Bristlebane shakes with laughter and says, 'You are much stronger than I thought. Looks like I'm gonna have to use all the tricks of the trade!' He then shouts a string of mystical words and is suddenly surrounded by a magical glowing aura and his skin takes on a rock like appearance.
(immune to magic and AC increase)
Bristlebane shakes with laughter and says, 'You are much stronger than I thought. Looks like I'm gonna have to use all the tricks of the trade!' He then shouts a string of mystical words and is suddenly surrounded by a magical glowing aura and his attacks become a blur as he launches into a quickened attack routine.
(immune to spells and attack haste)
Bristlebane shakes with laughter and says, 'You are much stronger than I thought. Looks like I'm gonna have to use all the tricks of the trade!' He then shouts a string of mystical words and is suddenly surrounded by a magical glowing aura and his muscles bulge with incomprehensible strength.

(ac and dmg increase)

those are posted in order. don't know at what point he says them.

he casts a spell as copied from below. It needs to be added up top so people can see.
Mischievous Mayhem

1: Decrease Spell Haste by 40%
2: Illusion: Halfling
3: Decrease ATK by 150
4: Increase Movement by 80%
5: Increase Curse Counter by 18

never saw the evac. he summons.

Casters beware, as a wiz i did little dps because he was immune a great bit of the time.

Laking a look at the rolling dps done by the main tank (and person who did 47% of the dmg) it looks like the AC increase did hit the rolling but nothing lasted that long. overall not very effective. Max hit 1781 on our 80 tank, min hit was 484, average of 820.

It looks like his str/haste does help hid dmg and dps a decent bit. it was during the str burst that he got that max hit.

Wasn't too bad of a fight. we didnt have to stress much. Bring meele, casters are useless most of the time. dropped sword, wrist and shoulders. a little 60 ranger was happy for the sword, better than defiant for awhile. the wrist didn't have much on the elab armor. shoulders couldn't be used =P

Good luck to everyone else, hope this helps others, and hope an admin updates the info on him!

Some notes on BB

To start, his trigger mob "The Mischieveous Jester" CAN be tracked from the central entry room (the room with the chest in the middle).

To get to Bristlebane (BB) go from entrance room to Western Wing to Theatre to Chess Board to Upside Down wing to the Portriat Room (where Mischieveous Jester is), kill jester, BB pops, then head into Throne room. It takes a while to learn the map but once you get it, it's really pretty easy. The maps from mapfiend are faily accurate, there are a few tricks to the map to learn but that's part of the fun.

It is a very good idea to just charge BB and pull him behind his throne, that way the mobs he spawns dont add. As for the fight, he can go spell immune for a while (he has some kind of emote about "Magical" something), which can be annoying for a caster. He otherwise isnt much trouble, he hit me for about 800 hps as a 85 necro. I just pet tanked him and dotted and kept merc on reactive. He seems randomly resistant, IE sometimes he is very resistant to fire, poison, magic etc, but on other fights, everything lands /shrug. He can also amp up how much he hits for, and how fast he hits with a couple of different emotes.

As far as loot, the clicky shrink is by FAR his rare drop. I probably killed him at least 12 times before i got mine. Best of luck clicky hunters!

Soloed him the other day on my 85 Necromancer. Took about 5 minutes. Pulled him to corner behind chair. Send in pet. Made sure i had some Finsternacht Orbs. Pet heal was up as well. Laid on all my dots, all landed. Used exigency for proc, then did 3rd spire. Swarm of Decay, Rise of Bones, Epic, and Robe pets. By the time all were done he was at 50% health. Dememmed some of my dots, brought in 2 corruption based and Splart rk2. Used those and Life taps rest of the fight, healing pet when needed and using orbs on pet in between recasts for pet heals. All in all easy fight. None of the adds he summoned touched me.

No clicky shrink =(
Dropped 2x Mystical Robes of Zenith, and 1x Fists of Fate.

Group composition:
76BST w/~1450AAs, 21k HP selfbuff + Tena from CLR merc
75BST w/~1400AAs, 20k HP selfbuff + Tena from CLR merc
76CLR T1 merc
75WAR T1 merc

Approx. HPs -- 700k
Attempt 1*: (1%) 630k (not including DoT damage)
Attempt 2: (5%) 650k (not including DoT damage)
Attempt 3: (1%) 670k (not including DoT damage)
Attempt 4: (27%) 490k (not including DoT damage)

*Attempt 1 was done with a 75RNG w/~1200AAs, 20k HP selfbuff + Tena from CLR merc and 75 T1 CLR merc instead of the 76BST and the 76CLR merc.

Max hit on 75WAR merc: 1716
Avg hit on 75WAR merc: 725
Low hit on 75WAR merc: 519
Avg DPS on 75WAR merc: ~800
Maximum one round burst on merc: 6554 (similar bursts--which generally precipitate the merc's death--have reached 4750 + 4600 [less than 10 seconds of separation, second spike was the killshot])


The problem is that in addition to hitting fairly hard, he does so in incredibly random bursts.
He's incredibly resistant to all schools of magic, primarily after 80% health. Below 40% health nothing would land (excluding -120 resist adjust combat skill). -100 resist adjust pet slow proc would not land, chain casts of -50 resist adjust slow would not land.
I had no time to pay attention to all his messages or the percentages he triggered them in combat, but Psychotlc's post was helpful nonetheless.

I successfully pulled Bristlebane behind his throne with no adds showing up in the middle of the fight.
By 80%, my first slow was wearing off and I'd have to cast my -50 resist adjust slow several times for it to restick.
By 40% I could no longer land any spells.
By 20% the cleric merc was very low on mana, even with both BSTs throwing spot heals. Bristlebane appears to be flurrying with alarming frequency.
By 10% the cleric merc has been completely OOM for 5% and has assumed paperweight mode. Bristlebane kills both BST through attrition.

very easy solo for 85 monk...i got him down to 40% without even using merc course after that he rapes a bit wouldnt have been able to kill him. i had merc on passive (t5) till 40% after i turned her on i didnt get below 50% 25khp 1800 aa's

I JUST SOLOED this guy with a Tier IV Journeyman Cleric merc. I am a Level 85 with a little over 1k AAs and it took EVERYTHING I had to kill this guy .... I found out he spawned adds but I didn't budge from him .... didn't have the endurance or mana to bother with the adds. When there got to be too many adds I set my merc from balanced to reactive. I was absolutely and extremely happy when he dropped the shrink bauble, which happens to be the ONLY reason I wanted to kill him. ..... the sweat is still dripping from my forehead. WOOOOT I ROCK!!!

Take him into the corner behind his throne and the fight is BB alone. The jester adds in the room will not agro if you stay behind the throne.

The respawn time on the jester is 3 Days, and as anyone camping this guy will know, the Jester is BB's Trigger. Would be nice if it was shortened to 24 hours.

at 85% he turns on magical glowing aura and is immune to magic
after about 30 minutes i finaly died he never turned off his immune to magic so im rather sure his ability's are % based not sure if he choses randomly what ones to turn on i only tried one time to solo him without being able to use magic to hurt him i was stuck with DS and after 30 min he was only down too 82% after he went immune to magic

then i tried again with a warrior and ranger and killed him he went immune to magic at 85% quickened his attacks(enabled flurrys) at 70% and 55% he went strong vs meele at 40% and upped his str at 25% and went fast again at 10%
has 3 adds max hit around 774 and they had lots of HPs

I made this map to get to my all-seeing eye mob for my chanter epic.

I think the big guy is the d-m-f path (not highlighted by me), but I'm not sure.

Jester killed at 2:54:22 PM

Didn't manage to kill Bristlebane

[4:56:07] Merry laughter echoes around you as Bristlebane smiles widely and then says, 'Looks like your gonna have to give it another go. Better luck next time lads and lasses!.' He then vanishes in a bright flash of light and smoke.

He despawned

At approx 5:00 the Mischievious Jester respawned, his death resulted in Bristlebane repopping

He spawns adds, they aren't hard at all. They won't aggro if you pull him into the hallway next to the click-out picture

Bristlebane himself becomes stronger as the emotes switch, so DPS HARD depending on the emotes.

Magical Barriers = no spells
Rock skin = mellee dps dimished
Wreckless Strength = hits hard
Incomprehensible Speed = hits fast

He can use any one or two of these emotes at once.

Bristlebane dropped today to a War, Monk, Rogue, Cleric, Shaman and Enchanter.

Warrior tanked Bristlebane behind his throne, we hugged wall with him and only got one add on us, monk took care of the add and then back in Bristlebane himself. All in all an easy fight.

Group was all Anguish+ gear and cleric had about 50m left. Did not banish anyone.

For some reason, i looked at the 2 handed sword he drops and it says Velious required. I thought this was a plane of power. It says that it is a Velious zone. WTF? Is this a plane or a Velious zone? someone please tell me.

this is a velious zone, not a plane of power. it is a plane though, but it came out well before power zones such as plane of tranquility, etc...

It is a plane added during the Velious expansion era and since revamped several times. The only way to reach it is via the Great Divide, hence the item is Velious-required.

ya, it was in Ntov first.
It was the main cause for res's to be changed. They used to click res the corpse, get them to the entrance, then accept it and appear there to zone in. Now you appear where you are clicked, regardless of wher the corpse goes.

Not enough people were able to get to PoM, so during one of the revamps, they added an entrance to the Great Divide.

Also it was a nifty way to port to cobalt scar without fidning a druid or wiz. Zone in, click tree, fall into CS.

You're right. I got so used to using the GD entrance that I completely forgot about (or blocked out) the ToV runs.
