85 CLR + Melee Merc fought him for a while. His HPs went down steadily. Merc did a good job keeping the adds entertained. CLR mana was barely moving. When his HPs were at 0% he DT'd the Merc and respawned with full HP. That is when I Gate'd out.

So, this mob is basically worthless now. Except for the Shadowed Storm Sphere clicky. People still hunt this for the shears though, which is what I did. However, you get the same bump in tailoring with a maxed tailoring trophy, so the usefulness of the shears in today's game is greatly reduced. Having said that, I still sat there in Akheva Ruins for 3 months.

I did not keep track of the drops I was not interested in. During these 3 months (Starting in October and lasting till Febuary) I managed to get a total of 2 Frizznik's Robe of Tinkering (For tinkers) and 4 Akhevan Shadow Shears. That is 31 kills at 3 drops per kill. To put it in perspective: That is a 4.3% drop rate for the Shears and a dismal 2.15% chance for the Tinkerer's Robe. Talk about really bad drop rates. On two back to back kills I had shears drop (1 each). I never saw a duplicate shear drop or a duplicate robe drop. Everything else on the spawn table I had multiples of at one point or another. Hypothetically multiple drops of shears and robe are possible, but drop percentages wereprobably too low for me to see that with only 31 kills.

Respawn details: Shei does not spawn on server up. But, this was announced in a patch message 7 years ago. Earliest respawn I saw (in 31 kills) was 3 days 4 hours and 30 minutes. Longest was 3 days 14 hours. I did have an instance of 3 days and 17 hours, but I think that was a patch day.

Here are my times (On the left is date of kill with time, on right is time since last kill). I don't claim the respawn times to be wholly accurate. It is included so I had an approximate idea when it would spawn, generally, it was around 3 days 9 hours since last kill. But it was not uncommon to be much later than that time either.

Friend wanted shears, so I added this mob to my cycle of old world farm mobs. looked like it was standard 3 days + some hours. today it was scheduled to spawn so I checked, checked again and again and again and again - every 1 -2 hours. then it got to be 3 days 13 hours 25 minutes so I gave up. and went raiding. after raids I said why not? and it was up. so it can be a long spawn

Edit: killed shei on 1/13 at 4 am on povar. servers went down on 1/14. I checked for shei over the next 28 hours and ever saw it. came back today and waited and shei popped at 10:15 am. that's 3 days 6 hours 15 minutes after last kill. its 1 day 16 hours 40 minutes after server came up ( /uptime) so shei does not follow server outages as far as spawn timer goes.

We wiped on him last night while he was at 4% and he despawned. 24 hours later he's still down.

Anyone know if this is a bug or what's his respawn?

Seems SOE beefed up this event a little bit:

Shei Vinetras now PROCS (not cast) Chromatic Disruption, a point-blank AE that lowers resists and does 50 damage/tick.

Also, Shei will now continually respawn 4 adds to attack the raid for the duration of the fight. If you kill them they just respawn.

Thats about it...

7 kills and no Shadowsong Cloak...

If I pop geomantra, takes DT down to 15100
I'm 16300 buffed. if I could take care adds before poping real one would be soloable no problem. melee damage from him is ridicilous.

There are 2 versions of Shei. One is a vendor who auto poofs on kill and that is what you probably killed.

# Dec 07 2005 at 10:39 AM Rating: Decent
For those who have tried this, with pally stuns or similar, how do you think a mage group would fair on this encounter?
I have been on some in WOS and its easy killing with no need to heal at all. If we have 6 air pets constantly stunning, think we could take it?
This will probably be the only way I can do this, unless I try open raiding it (seeing as my guild doesn't raid often).
Any help would be appreciated. With the new Tinkering trivials 400+, the extra 5% over and above the Geerlok would make all the difference!

Very, very late reply, but if what I am told about mobs using death touch is accurate, they will not DT your pet. They'll ignore your pet and blast you instead. Five mages and a very, very busy cleric might work.

These days, since it seems that this is one of a very few DT effects of yesteryear that has not been upgraded to a 100k or 200k blast, it's easy to cap out your HP high enough that you can mostly shrug off the effect, and with a merc healer you'll be back to full well before the next DT.

killed with 12 last night (anguish geared). still way too many adds i think to try this with 6 people. afaik, he was not stunnable for us and the fight ended with roughly 30+ adds. dropped sphere, sword, and mask. before we killed him got at least 6 rounds of DT so 12mins fight. also not all of these adds/mobs are mezzable and nothing was charmable. g'luck. wtb shears/robe

FYI... DA does block Touch of the Venitras. You're thinking of Cazic Touch which will burn through DA. Also, if you have a very good tank with DI and kept at good health near the time of the TotV then there's a possibility of him surviving it. Good possibility too. But he needs to have around 17k-18k hp and spell shielding.

Your Magelo says you have not even passed SoRo, yet your charm says its Time enabled. Your adventurs stone says its max LDoN yet you are not on the leaderboards... try making an honest Magelo next time and I'll believe your guild killed Shei in under 2 minutes.

It's just one of these retarded guild plugs you see so much. You know, the guilds full of power gaming retards who ruin a lot of the fun for so many others need to come onto Allakhazam and boast about what they did...


I'm tired of everyone posting their inane accomplishments on the bestiary forums. It's as if they believe SOMEONE cares. Hey "Froggerx" or whatever you said your name was... NOBODY CARES. I don't care, Moritam doesn't care... nobody cares. If we wanted to read all about what your worthless guild did we'd go to the poorly designed guild webpage.

It's pretty easy to tell that nobody wants to read what the **** your crappy guild did. So, I'd like to know... why do so many fools like you keep making those posts?

Shei is a he, most if not all of the four arms, are male, but the robed things that run through Maiden's eye are female, there is a way you can tell the male shades from the female. The Male ones, have a crown, red flowing eyes, and and a skull belt, the female ones, are plain black robes, that sort of, just drift about. And now I have completed my complete useless piece of information, I take my bow /bow.

I am a 59 Cleric on The Nameless.Went on a Raid against this thing(first time). Well we went with 40+ people average level was 63. We killed the Merchant Shei with no prob. When we started on Shei he Death Touched main tank causing add to pop. Well the raid wasn't organized so at this point people where assisting the wrong people...FYI the adds will summon you. All the casters where on the Stairs behind Shei and we started to get summoned. Shei is a monster if raid isn't organized and planned.Mana taps you,summons,DTs,and pops add when someone dies.This all equals to a fun experience or a summon your corpse experience..we did the summon one.

We tried Shei tonight with standard tactics. Pulled all trash out of the room. Aggroed Shei and the 4 named popped. We bring out the 4 named and tank each to 15 percent. We then bring the merchant Shei out and kill. Real Shei pops down below so we kill the 4 named. We send someone in to take the DT and all 4 named pop again. The 4 named had been dead about 45 seconds. So we pull out the 4 named again and kill them. Guess what: the named pop again almost instantly. This is either bugged or has been changed on purpose. Have done Shei many times and never seen this behaviour. Anyone else try Shei recently and seen this behaviour?

7 day spawn is not up after server reset !
2 ways to kill ... it !
1: mass dps on shei and off tank adds (dangerous cause u need healers for the off tanks and if u dont kill shei fast enough u gonna have to many adds)
2: kill adds a fast as possible then every1 back on shei till next DT / adds. (safer imo but takes a while and u need the dps to kill adds before next adds spawn)
i know there are holes in this and that is intentional ... learn by trying !!!

I think the male/female returns on the %s and %o are sometimes goofy. The other 4-armers also seem to report as male, but they've got ******* and just look female. . . I tend to think it's not much more than a typo. Or these things are more kinky than I care to know. ;-)

Ok he spawns a lvl 60 mob everytime he DTs someone or everytime someone dies period?

And the mob he spawns, can it be charmed via the new Command of Druzzil spell that enchanters get. Cause that would be a nice way to get higher DPS, every time one tank dies....swtich tanks and get another DPS pet.
RE: Charm the adds?
# Apr 30 2003 at 9:03 AM Rating: Decent
A mob spawns anytime anything at all dies in that room during the event. That includes players, mobs, even pets (charmed or summoned). AFAIK, the robes that spawn are extremely MR, and, if not completely non-charmable, charms would be highly resisted. Basically, pets during this fight are a serious no-no. Get some pallies or SKs on the adds, with orders not to kill the robes until Shei is dead. Have everyone else on Shei. Sac someone for the initial DT, get your MT in, and kill him fast. Have at least one second tank ready to go. 2-3 extra tanks ready to MT is a good idea.

A new level 60 mob spawns ONLY when a Player Controlled entity dies (PC, pet, or charmed NPC). We typically clear the 4 adds that spawn with Shei before engaging it. Though we kill them up on the platform, it's been debated that killing NPCs on the carpet that Shei is on WILL result in an add, though we've never tested that. Once the first 4 are dead, we just off-tank the other 2 or three that spawn due to Death Touch.

Hmm I read that Shei's DT is "resetable" by our stuns (most likely our PoP lvl 62 or lvl 64 stun, even more so our AA Divine Stun).
Someone said just stun every 20 seconds to reset the DT timer.
Of course the stunners would get aggro, so perhaps a lvl 65 PoP AA'd paladin can be tank?

I'm not gonna post exactly how to kill Shei, because very few guilds on my server can kill him and I'd like to keep it that way. However I will give you some info about the fight.

~Shei initially cons dubious to all. When you aggro him he will come after you along with 4 or so robes that are kos.
~When you kill Shei a kos version of Shei will spawn in the middle of his room. He is rooted. He hits in the 700's. He can be slowed. He has a lot of hps. He death touches every 2 mins. Whenever someone dies a level 60 add will spawn.
~There's a mana drain trap in Shei's room.

As for the strat to beat Shei. It takes a while to figure it out, but once you figure it out he's a punk, and no I don't mean any sort of sploits. I will tell you this- figure out a way to split merchant Shei from his robed friends. It's possible. Also there is a way to avoid the mana drain trap if you patient and try some different things...

Uber guilds do share stats. Things that make guilds UBER is NOT witholding info, its their ability to get formed up in an instant and be well organized. When a mob pops and someone says lets GO kill it!!, its not "Hang on Im in a grp or Im almost done.: ITs Drop EVERYthing an GO now! port there BE there in 1 minute or less take 1 minute to form and BAM! engage all while organized and working as a team. It makes me SICK to my stomch to hear **** falling out of your mouths. People that think like that are just ignorant greedy bastids !!!!! lol
GET SOME!!! muhahahaha
I love blowing off steam on these boards lol
can't be too hard

This encounter cant be THAT hard if organized.
Gather 54 of your guildies, assign 2 groups to each of the mobs that spawns after DT (4 groups total) and send the other 30 at Shei herself.

Considering Shei isn't one of the 2 auto-quad mobs in the game, and having the tanking always defensive (due to being DTed every 2 min), Shei's DPS isn't going to be that good.

Have 4 groups CC the adds and 6 tanks to be perm-defensive tanking, 5 clerics in chain, 1 cleric battle rezzing, and 3 DPS groups on Shei. AE taunt is also a plus on your tank cycle. Pretty much sums it up.
