Hi All - In case any progression guilds are still doing Akheva, here is a brief rundown of our recent encounter:

Anima of Test killed VD on Nov 1 2013. We cleared from the zone in all the way to the hallway that leads to VDs chamber. At this point, you need to clear VDs room and the hall of various Shaded Stones and Rubble Rousers. The RRs have almost as much HP as Va'Dyn, so they are quite annoying. You can clear the entire chamber aside from 1 mob who sits on the altar that VD is collapsed on.

When you pull VD, this add will come with.

VD was slowable, has ~250K HP and hits for 240 on average. During the fight various rubble rousers will spawn (not sure on what triggers them) and some shaded stones re-popped towards the end of the fight.

You need to loot and get out of VDs room quickly as adds will quickly overwhelm you, we ended up with 6 adds on us while trying to loot.

He dropped Toetwister which sadly rotted and Gold Inlaid Ulak In our other kill he only dropped Shadrock stuff.

Raymond, I dont see how you dropped Va'Dyn with a 65 ranger and merc. There is no way you could tank this guy with a T1 cleric merc as a 65 ranger, and there is no way a T1 tank merc can tank it with ranger heals. Maybe you did I am not going to be like the other's who will argue that. I'm a 70 Bard with 900 AA's, a T4 Tank merc, 2.0 epic and all my songs. I cleared the room, pulled Va'Dyn behind one of his little stone walls so I wouldn't get aggro on any respawns in the room. He hit's fairly hard and has a number of hitpoints. In my 3 minute fight,I burnt out all my dps AA's, dps discs, used my 2.0 once, used deftdance, & shield of notes rank 3. On top of that, with Voice Of The Serpant, my Stormblade crits for 951 very often and my damage shield does roughly 180hp dmg. When i finally faded away from the va'dyn, i was at 17% health, the va'dyn was at 10% health.

Used my ogre illusion mask so I wouldn't get stunned from the front as well. This guy is still difficult for a level 70. I'm sure i'll get the "you must suck" replies from this post. I didn't have any healing potions on me, I was playing War March Of Muram, Stormblade, Psalm of veeshan, and warsong of the vah shir.

Just wanted to put this post up in case anyone wanted more reviews on The Va'dyn solo'd.

I'd guess with current PC gear and a cleric merc it would have to at least be close to possible for a ranger to do this. We take him down easily with one group on the Mac server Al Kabor and we only have the expansions up to PoP, so our gear pales in comparison to what you can get at 65 on PC servers and our healers have realistic mana pools which do actually run out, unlike 65 cleric mercs which could probably heal forever in an encounter like this.
no toetwister =(

Just Solo'd him with my 73 beastlord, anguish geared, used quiet a few potions but very little trouble, except when room repoped, think i should have pulled back to previous room in the corner, one of the corterie, would have been easier to deal with then 1 rouble rouser and 4 shade rocks, dropped few spells and robe for me, junk was looking for toe twister, get him again i guess.

Usually I do much longer, more detailed posts than this one, but I'll keep this short as its completely trivial by todays standards. I took him and most of the mobs in his room at once with 81 Mage pet only moderatley buffed.

Total damage dealt over the fight was over 650,000 however only 250,000 was The Va'Dyn if that gives you an idea of how many adds I had at once. Stats are based on 81 mage pet tanking with max defensive aa's for level.

Maximum hit 525, minimum hit 143 (bash), averaged out at 220 and did 128.4 DPS over the course of just under 11 minutes.

Quick look

Min Hit - 143
Max Hit - 525
Avg hit - 220
DPS - 128.4
HP - 250,000

I know nothing about his resists, easy to get adds from him.

Duo'd the va`dyn with 77BST & 65 BOT CLR(8.1kHP | 1.5k AC)and had very little trouble. Pulled the va`dyn with 1 rubble rouser add, since I could not clear the mobs out fast enough.

Highest hit on me was around 377 or so, fight lasted around 21 mins. I kept the va`dyn slowed and never got below 40% HP. Cleric was still 75M by the end of the fight.

What is the spawn timer on this guy i have wasted his spawn room over and over with an 80 SK helping me but we can't get him to spawn. Is there a trick or something to get him to spawn?

Trick is to be there @ spawn time or the people that farm it will log in @ the presis time to kill it. Same with the NPC in GE that drops the clicky AC/DS belt. I ran into the same problem with the water dragon in TD. Once I beat the farmer on killing it before they logged on and destroying all I did not need to leave no evedince of the kill I had it made; and just had to set a timmer for the 3 day timmer it was on. I marked it on the calander as well. Also made prolly 500k in selling off them treasure hunter bags. Which sadly now all weight reduction bags are worthless with coinage carrying zero weight.

He dropped the Shaderock Girdle, Aleje's Ceremonial Cudgel, A Glowing Orb of Luclinite, and Spell: Shock of Fiery Blades.

Duo'd with classic Mnk/Shm combo. Both toons 65 and potime geared. Fight took 15 mins, about 600dps between both toons. Gotta refresh that slow or Dyn's burst dps will surprise you. Dropped cudgel x 2. Ghey.

Lvl 70 warrior around 2500 ac and 12,500 hps at the time. with boxed 58 cleric. Cleared minor adds in Va Dyn room, then cleric used Wake of Tranquility on Rubble rousers near Va Dyn, Warrior uses arrow to get Agro from hallway, insta invis potion to not get extra agro on run back, cleric gates to Maidens eye then zones back in, meantime warrior pulled Va Dyn to zone, a few minor adds, Rip Disc then finish off minors and fight is on with Va Dyn. Around that time I notice cleric is about 40 mana, so I have to pop a Clarity potion. Long stinkin fight, close to 23 minutes. The save for the warrior was WillSapper, with 6 1/2 minute slow, even a minor slow saved the day and cleric was able to actually regen mana towards the end of the fight.

My Advice, make sure you have a real slower, higher lvl cleric, and some dps to make it a faster fight! GL to all!

Duoed this mob today 12k hp beastlord Slower / Tank / Dps boxing a Cleric. The trick is the pull him to zone single ( which isn't that bad using ''green pet'' pull ). Watch out for the traps and you will never lose invis while your pet is dragging him to zone line.

Fight took about 25-30 mins Cleric never went below 88% mana (was only meleing and casting DS / Ch). The proc stun is kinda annoying if you are trying to rebuff haste etc but all in all long fight and fun.

Dropped 2 toetwisters , ord , spell : shock of fiery blades.

Peace

FD pulling
# Apr 14 2005 at 1:13 AM Rating: Decent
Can the Va'Dyn be Feign Death pulled? Me and a shammy friend plan on doing him sometime this weekend or next week. Both level 65. Im confident we can handle the VD if he is single pulled but just wondering if that is possible.

I pull this guy every 3 days with my 70 Bard. Pull him to what I call the shard camp (Corner to the left of TVD's lair). Fade of adds Kill Va'Dyn Rinse and repest in a few days. My son has also FD with his 69 Monk and Warrior tag works just as well. With FD pull we have never had more than one add which Monk Tanked.

Was with a group of 4 with a shaman healer. None of which were even EP geared. Anyways even with pally with not greatest gear in world tanking ( not to bash on pally tanks /uber =p ) and a low-mana shammy healer, this guy did get the understanding we wanted him =dead, lol unfortunatly all in all shammy got low without a twitcher and agro got messy, was Pally, Shamy, 2bsts and me being 1 of the beasts =p. I came back with Pally and brought a Druid and downed this guy EASY ! And for his drops i my lvl 23 bard is very grateful, suggest anyone that has 2 accounts TO pwn this guy for alt. loot !

Killed him last night with 1 group.

I was 3boxing, our monk 2boxed a shaman, and our 6th member played just his bard.

Group consisted of

65 war (me)
64 dru (me)
62 clr (me)
65 monk
65 shaman (monk)
65 bard

Killed all of the rocks in his room, then pulled Va'Dyn solo. Hit furious while the shaman slowed him. All magic spells landed np, but he seems to be 100% reistant to fire, cold, poison, and disease.

Shaman kept quiscence (sp?) on me and cleric and druid alternated heals and nuking/dots. Took about 15 minutes to kill. Once crippled and slowed he rarely flurries and hit 458 max. I used evasive against him and could go quite a while before any heals were needed.

Dropped skybreaker, cudgel, orb, and bard song.
One Group Easily

Took this guy down last night with a group consisting of the following: 65 paladin, 65 paladin, 65 druid (me), 65 Shaman, 65 cleric and a 62 ranger. Mob flurries, summons, and enrages. Fight was easy, but the mob has a lot of HP (20 minute fight). I just kept stacking dots and when mob was at 20%, I just started blasting all of my mana away. Cleric never had problems with heals or running out of mana (think she had FT 4 and no chanter buffs). Mob was slowable and I thik it could be duoed by a good tank/shaman, but would take over an hour with all of its HPs.

We got the following drops:
Toetwister
The bracer
couple of spells
Orb of luclinite (grats to me)
