Have heard a guildie of mine soloed this (was told by another guildie that saw him do it)...never seen it personally but I believe it...can solo almost all the UP names I think...except RC

The soloing technique wasn't totally "legal" by SOE terms but yes I have personally seen him solo every named in UP

there is no way in hell that anyone could solo this, maby in omens if they give necros 3 dif dots that all stack and all do around 3k d.p.t could solo this guy lol. or maby if they give wizzys 20k damage nukes lol, but they would still die.

how to pop DS

Popping Doomshade is easy and here is how you do it.Doomshade is a 3day random pop. If you are in UP and you see a message like "the dark masters begin to chant to coming of doom" doom is able to be have to kill the 4 dark masters within 20mins...Sounds easy.without a force to handle the adds it can get hairy.after the DM's are down you see a message "a tortured scream echos thru the lands as a cursed soul if realeased"or something to that effect.Just pin her in the corner and add all the DPS you can muster..Pretty sweet drops though. SHE FLURRYS A LOT!!! have a 3sec cleric rotation on the MT.

Doomshade is a pushover,with the right amount of people it is easy. Don't pull her with adds though. that makes it more fun but also deadly at the same time.

Doom dropped Hoarfrost Hammer on Tholuxe Paells.

Saw the earlier post on it, wanted to state that it should probably be added to this mob's loot table.

It isnt an addition. She can drop anything off of the Radir/Tawro loot tables pluss her 3 or 4 "special" items

Dropped Spell:Greater Familiar (wiz lvl 60) for us today along with some other stuff that is up there.
Doom is a she as it says in con. To pull i moved our two groups to the area just before VT, didnt get an add at all from just standing there, only once or twice did we get a moktor add on the pulls because they were in the way. Doom is fairly easy, the mini raid we had consisted of 2 clerics(65) (one being boxed) a 63 druid (boxed) 2 SU 3 pallies (65) 2 65 bards, 2 65 ranjahs, 62 mage, and 65 monk.
Also on pull - clear assassins by the tons if u can - helps alot when pullin masters timewhise so u are sure to not have to redo masters, oh and dont let them proc on you by staying in to closeof range, the snare sux.

Pulling the DMs

The best way i have found to quickly pull the DarkMasters with out many assasin adds is to have a bard run around with accelerating chorus and lev going. The bard will round up about 20 DAs plus various other mobs. This will shorten the spawning of Doomshade significantly.

Was with a group in UP when a raid came in asking if we wanted to join and we did. There where 4 group with 1 Cleric in each group (Raid ave was 61). We waited at the zone line while for the pull to come there. Once there the Mt took Doom to a Cornor, and we attacked from behind. No one died, after that we pulled RC, who has a lot less HP than Doom.

There are a few key parts when fighting Doomshade.
1.) Getting him to spawn
You must kill all 4 Darkmastets in about 15 - 20 minutes to have him spawn. Thus, you should clear the area in front of these things, and plenty of Dark Assassians.
Also, he is on a 3 day spawn timer. The Dark Masters should be chanting about the coming of Doom every 30 min to let you know if you can spawn him.

2.) The Fight
Doomshade is unslowable. He can quad 470 max damage. The best thing to do is have him in the corner with the MT and just have a good CH rotation. He has a lot of hp, so be prepared for a semi-long fight.

Damage output is low enough that a 7500hp paladin with ca3 and cs3 can be healed by a single cleric chain ch'ing. We can almost do Doomshade with a single group now, and I know of a couple guys who each 6 box that are chain farming her.

Tank, Bard, a few clerics, shamman, monk, chanter, necro, druid and mage.

Most were 65, few were in the mid to low 50's

He was harder to spawn than he was to kill.

Dropped the Petrified Staff, Crystal Arm-thing, Bracelet of Sense, Wand of Cursed Souls, Khuras Focusing and a lvl 60 cleric hammer spell.

Also dropped some black orb that was NO RENT.

overall, a very fun fight...easy...decent loot for the effort.

Our normal hunting group took on 3 extra people and we successfully took Doom down. It was tough with just 9 and only 1 tank, but doable. Victors were: 65 Warrior, 65 Mage, 65 Druid, 2x65 clerics, 65 necro, 63 Chanter, 62 Ranger, and 65 shammie. The only hard part is the getting the freak to spawn.

Did him today with 10 ppl. 65 war, 65 wiz, 60+ cleric, 65 shm, 61 shm (me), 59 rog, 56 druid, 50 bard, 60 ish ranger. not one death, and we had no brain candy beyond bard mana song. When we got lom Berserk (mt)aggro kited until we had a chance to med. The fight took at least 15-20 minutes. This guy had a TON of hp. Great job to everyone that was there! awesome fight

Never got a slow of any kind landed on him. Got the 'this mob is immune to changes in it's attack speed' msg, so he is definitely unslowable.

Hmm, must have been interesting kiting a mob who summons.....its not like you dont get hit so thereby your healers get a comeplete break.

Did Doomshade again, same MT (Berserk) he has 6300HP unbuffed. Two clerics alternating CH on him (casting when the tank got to 4bulbs of health) we could have kept the MT up indefinately (he was in defensive). We had to do him again unfortunately without defensive due to an opposing guilds bard casting highsun on DS when we got him to 10%. It wasnt that much harder. Its very possible to do DS one group one cleric as long as the tank has good HP's and the cleric has some mana regen. Otherwise, you get minimum two clerics and a tank with 5k HP unbuffed and you can do DS pretty easy.
#Grunmore, Posted: Jun 18 2003 at 7:34 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) For some reason i cannot edit my other post, so i will have to make a new one. I just recently scrolled all the way down and read all the posts. He does not depop without agro because we tried him 3 times. And he was left alone for way over 15 minutes in between the second and the third attempt. Just sitting there above the enterance facing the wall. I told him to stay there (whip cracking noise here)
#Grunmore, Posted: Jun 16 2003 at 7:31 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) He flurries a lot, but with a 3 cleric CH rotation of 4 seconds each, you should be able to keep alive a level 60+ tank until clerics start going oom. This is the problem. With 400k hp's you need a lot of DPS to kill him before your clerics go out of mana. Make sure you have dps dps dps. =D

Killed him, dropped Bracelet of Quickness / Knotted Knuckles / Longsword of Freedon/ Bow of Doom / some other stuff I forgot, and some spells. Came close to a wipe - not sure why, but the ma dropped with Doom at 9%, 63 pally took over, he dropped with Doom at 5%, and we managed to keep the deaths low. Come to think of it, I think we only had 1 cleric.

We did him with 15, could of easily trimmed down to 12.

No real tricks other than MT backing him up into a corner and making sure aggro is firm.

We had three clerics and they used a 5 second CH rotation, and as the MT I never really got below 50% life.

We could tweak this kill for greater efficiency.

I think he's spawnable every 3 days or so. (confirm?)

Rare drops
# May 19 2003 at 8:18 PM Rating: Decent
We've probably took him down over 15 times now. The Bow of Doom is definitly the rare drop (only 1 so far) followed by the Haste earring (4 so far). Last time we did him we had 3 copies of KEI drop, but have gotten a few BoAs also. Although we normally do him w/ 22+, we have done him wit only 15 using a 7500HP tank w/ a 5k heal Druid and Cleric doing then chain (had a shaman on spots).

From parsing a log of our fight with her last night, She took 237,507 points of damage and was killed in just under 5 minutes. Obviously this is missing the damage from our spellcasters (except for critical nukes) and from people too far away than the melee whose log was used, so I think the total hit points is somewhere in the region of 400k.

Does anyone have any better estimates?

Loot was Earring of Endless Speed, Mithril Edged Short Sword, Rod of Virtue, Bracelet of Beauty, and some spells (sorry, I forget which).
