Camping ranger's haste cloak, and killed him several times.
Kill one of unnamed mob and see Ekim Nottap on my track list.
Waiting for over 2 hour, but he didn't spawn.
Trying to kill named mob, and he spawn right after The Gale Caller die.
I think kill The Gale Caller is needed to spawn him.
How do you take this mob down?

I've been trying to get my warrior's epic 1.0 done at level 85, but for a level 60 mob he sure makes short work of my warrior and druid with mercs.
about time...

Official timer after i killed some other key mobs the storm lady mentioned in previous comment's was 3 hours and 31-32 minutes. Didn't get the drop i was after so here we go on another spawn timer this one will be gauged after taking out the noble and the 2 mobs that follow him. Overseer of air and the hand of veeshan. got 2 standards out of the deal woot woot one is on a ranger alt:) other is in me bags. soul carrier( Pegasus) killed 2:33 am not sure if it will also help spawn timer but also another "ph" essentially at 2:09 am.

Hmmmmmm, so killed The Storm Lady and boom got another Pegasus on the horse island so it seems if previous key mobs or raid mobs or what ever they may be considered are up they could potentially stop the cycle on certain mobs I.E. KEEPER OF SOULS!!!!!!!

Beefed up resists?

Pretty sure this guy is beefed up on resists now. 79 nec with no resist trials done, maxed on resists otherwise, crit lifetaps for 300, couldn't land anything else. Forgot to try lifeburn, but I imagine a similar result. Malo'd by 75 mage's highest rk II malo (after mala), still not landing anything. He does however heal up slowly, so finally decided to let mage pet and DS do the work. Gonna test if he's maybe a belly caster. Mage didn't land nukes either.

For the newbs reading this: if you see someone at the island and there's still one or two mobs up, just leave please and don't:
- loot the corpses when there's a necro
- think your heroic shammy can do it solo
- kill off the spawns the people left there on purpose

See the tactic by knmgfijnm for the reason.

I was messing around in Sky last night on this isle and i guess KoS was already spawned because out of nowhere I got DT'd. No damage message, no yell, nothing. I had 58k hp at the time (buffs strip off on zone in) so it appears DT is guaranteed death and not based on health.

Fortunately I came back right away and 1 shotted him with Life Burn.

Killed this guy as a level 100 enchanter today. I had Legion of Xolok Rk. II (Mitigate Spell Damage by 20%, 34553 total) and Glyph Spray 2 (Increase Absorb Magic Damage by 50000) up and he literally DT'd me for 3000 points of damage. So If you are looking to take him down, get some enchanter spell shield love before you go up! I had all my other regular runes up as well, like Eldrich Rune and that absorbs most damage, even mod rods and at max level it absorbs 100,000 damage so it must bypass regular runes, so get spell shields! I nuke took him down.

Anyone that can burn him between DT:s can do this mob.

1. Have a merc tank attack a trash mob.
2. Invis and run to KoS.
3. Set merc on passive and wait for merc to come near KoS, merc will take the DT.
4. Burn KoS before next DT.

I did this with a lvl 80 druid so i guess any caster at that lvl can do it.

Lifetaps work great. Was hitting him with highest level tap for 3K. No problems.

He summons.

Did this with a mage, another necro and myself. Mage (Svar, thanks man!) initialized and was instantly dropped. KoS deathouches on initial agro with a huge agro range. He does not see invis. I tried Soul Reaper's pyre, didn't stick. Tried Dyn'leth's Grasp. Didn't stick. Started lifetapping. That stuck. The other necro hit him with lifeburn for 11k. I should've lifeburned..(26K) and we could've had him without my death. Got him to about 12 percent with 85 rogue pet with EM1, mage weaps and mask, and a few taps. I died and other necro finished him off with taps.

Pop mercs. Mercs take DT's, as well.

spawn time

For me he spawned EXACTLY 60 minutes from the time the first trash mob died (on island 4). also when the first trash mob dies, Nottap Ekim spawns and begins the 60min timer for Keeper of Souls. he also begins his own timer of 120min, which once is reached Nottap himself will despawn and you can kill another trash mob on island 4 to start another KoS/Nottap spawn cycle.

I chain spawned KoS 6 times in a row (over an entire day in PoSky) and all respawn/despawn timers were the same. 60min for KoS, 120min for Nottap to despawn.

hope this helps for anyone trying to spawn KoS more than once!

The time from first trash kill to KoS spawn was 80 minutes for me today, not 60. Perhaps it has changed over the years.

Spawns after all mobs on the Island have been killed, DT'ed me for 94k HP, must have a group that can do enough DPS to minimize the times KOS can DT.

Spawn time Is 60 to 85 mins upon the death of first mob on island, i was getting mixxed ideas on this guy, even research seemed a bit off. Was getting people saying once island clear he spawns or the 60-85 min thing or 5 mins upon another mobs death. Took a zerker friend to own this guy up, sadly he is LD and the mobs up, think im gonna watch him despawn. Oh well always tomorrow

Does he also DT pets? The reason I am asking this is pets are immune to being banished by the 4 guildmasters in Sanctus Seru. So, I was wondering if the Keeper of the Souls could not DT a mage pet for instance due to some game bug or something similar to pets not getting banished in SS.

Today we attempted to get as many keys as we could for Plane of Sky.

Tried to kill Keeper of Souls with 62 warrior, 70 paladin, 74 druid, and 68 mage.
Got it down to 48%. Not enough DPS to handle the 45 second death touch refresh.

Interesting fact and why I think it happens.

To spawn this mob, you have to kill 1 "A soul carrier" or "an essence harvester".
Upon the death of the first these, Nottap Ekim spawns out of your reach somewhere in the center of the zone. I have a theory why and it IS related to KoS.

My guess is that he is a timer mob. It goes like this.
1. A soul carrier or an essence harvester is killed. At that moment, 3 things happen.
EQ Checks. Is Nottap Ekim in zone?
---------Yes -- Don't do anything.
---------no ----Start timer for KoS to spawn, Spawn Nottap Ekim.

So timer starts that counts down to when KoS spawns. Also Nottap Ekim is given a Despawn timer and that starts to count down, say 150 minutes.

2. Now you kill a 2nd mob, either A soul carrier or an essence harvester.
EQ Checks. Is Nottap Ekim in zone?
---------Yes -- Don't do anything.
---------no ----Start timer for KoS to spawn, Spawn Nottap Ekim.

Since Nottap Ekim is in zone, EQ doesn't start a 2nd timer for a 2nd KoS to spawn.

How do I test this theory? Easy, I killed only 1 of the 6 mobs, waited for KoS to spawn, killed him. Then I killed a 2nd mob while Nottap was still in zone and waited. No KoS spawned.
Afterwards I waited for Nottap Ekim to despawn on his own and killed a 3nd mob. Then waited to see if KoS spawned again. He did.

The reason Nottap is out of range of any islands is so that raids can't spawn multiple KoS's by killing Nottap and farm KoS's drops easliy.

If anyone wants to sit it out and spawn 6 KoS's. Here's how to do it.
1. Kill 1 of the "A soul carrier" or "an essence harvester"
2. Park a cleric out of range of where KoS spawns and not help in the fight with KoS.
3. When till KoS spawns, kill him and die. Have cleric drag bodies away and rez. Loot up.
4. Wait till Nottap Ekim despawns.
5. Repeat step 1.

This requires most of your raid/group to have keys already so they can move on. If they have keys, they can just move to the next island instead till Nottap despawns, jump off, jump down or wizzy port back to isle 1 and run back and repeat.

I a betting Nottap Ekim is on about a timer of 150 minutes. KoS's random timer is 65 to 100 minutes and another 30 for despawning. So the wait time is gonna be long if you want to do this.

**on a side note, nottap ekim is spelled backwards. Mike patton is a singer who has an album called "the wrath of the easter bunny" Maybe sirran, who says :What?! Now you've done it! The bunnies are angry! ANGRY I TELL YOU!" listens to his music?

When KoS spawns, buff up your DPS, use only damageing buffs that proc or add attack first then what ever you want afterwards. Have cleric stay back, send in rest with invis up. Circle KoS and have everyone target him. !st person Eats DT, 45 seconds to max damage. 2nd person Eats DS if kos not dead. Now...if all wipe, cleric is still out back with Invis up. Run his little behind over, drag corpses away and rez, rebuff and try again, why? Cause KoS can't see invis and HAS A SLOW HP REGEN.

did a 3 man, cleric in back, ranger for dps and shaman to eat DT, 3 deaths and KoS down. Cleric rezed shaman 3 times, ranger 3 times for a loss of 12% xp each but no biggie. A full group should be able to kill in 1 shot.

Well we cleared the island down to two mobs, did know he would spawn early ( it didnt take us 80 mins to clear the island) Ofcorse we wiped, no one was alive to hold agro or kill it fast enough. I tried my best to get the group back up there to try again, needless to say he despawned . now i return and kill the last few mobs, will he respawn ?if so how long ? any ideas ?

If I remember correctly DT travels through the pet directly to you. So no, pets won't take the DT for you sadly. Though a DT is interruptable, though it's a matter of luck rather than skill. I've seen a warrior's kick stun the spiroc boss right as it was going to DT and it interrupted.

sort of old post.. anyway.. if your a necro, can't you FD and send pet's in? because it shouldn't DT you while in FD, unless FD fails and you didn't notice it. Even if it did DT, maybe it would DT the pet.. then send the raid in? just a theory.
RE: Is It Possible?
# Jul 07 2007 at 6:54 AM Rating: Decent
at one time, this might have been possible... I've heard it to be true.. but I think not any more. I was FD in Fear, and pet chain agro'd thru to a DTing golem, even while FD, I took the DT. I was prolly FD for 30 sedonds at that point.

this was perhaps a year ago.

hope to get this drop soon, my guildies hate this zone with a passion :o(

iam glad those keys wont vanish anymore after zoning out. means you can go straight up invis without botherin with lower isles. keep your bag full of keys banked, there is always a necro in need ;o)

KoS has approx 25k HP give or take. Does DT every 30 seconds, and hits for approx 300-400. KoS can perform double hits in one round.

Not sure how long it took us, but as soon as the 4th island was clear...KoS spawned.
