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!!!!!!!

DTed my bard and necro on separate occasions for 65k HP. Easy to survive these days if you're at max level and have CotF gear and/or are GL buffed.

If you have a Shadowknight friend, bring them along. Invis, HT, fight's over. No DTs necessary.
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.

Im not sure on the whole 45 to 60 minutes spawn. Went to 5th island and killed everything on it. That was over 2 hours ago and no spawn.

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.
Spell shield

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.

Aikido is the principle of non-resistance. Because it is non-resistant, it is victorious from the beginning. Those with evil intentions or contentious thoughts are instantly vanquished. Aikido is invincible because it contends with nothing.

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.

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.

I ate the death touch while my group took the Keeper out in about 20 seconds. The cape dropped on the first kill. Drop rate has been upped imo.
