NOTE: This is the quest entry for the group version of "King of the Beasts". See this quest entry for the raid version.



This group mission begins with Kalda Treg in the Beasts' Domain, located at 315, 2800, 10 (far northwestern part of the zone).

Pre-requisites for requesting the task:
- Completion of "Beasts for the Stew"
- Completion of "A Question of Integrity"
- Completion of "Message of Faith"
- Completion of "Pups of War"
- 73 Skill Level in Alaran



You say, 'Hail, Kalda Treg'

Kalda Treg says, in Alaran, 'Do you know how this great land works? The Domain has a King. A King of Beasts. A King that takes power from the echo of Kolos in these lands. It takes a powerful creature to dethrone the current beast, and when it does it grows even stronger. However, the current King has reigned too long. And he drains the power of the Domain, rather than using it. We need your help to defeat him, as we are not capable alone. If you agree, there are two ways we can deal with this threat: a small [group] to attack by stealth, or a large group to [assault] the King directly.'

You say, 'A small group'

Without pre-requisites:

Kalda Treg says, in Alaran, 'It does not seem right at this moment. We need more time to prepare. Continue to assist Mea Treg, and then we can talk.'

With pre-requisites:

Kalda Treg says, in Alaran, 'That might be best. I will gather a few hunters. Keep your own group small and agile. Let me know when you are [ready].'

You have been assigned the task 'King of the Beasts'.

The King of the Beasts has reigned for over a decade and must be deposed. The hunters of the Beasts' Domain have requested help.

Talk to Kalda and lead the hunters to victory.

Defeat the King of the Beasts. The creature must be prevented from draining the Domain.



Talk to Kalda Treg 0/1 (Beasts' Domain)

Hailing Kalda Treg triggers the event, so don't hail Kalda until ready.

You say, 'Hail, Kalda Treg'

Kalda Treg shouts, 'Be wary! The strongest opponent of the King will draw powers from the Domain. It will empower you, but shortly after it will start to control you! Be agile! Now, the beast must be destroyed! Attack!'

There appears to be a storm overhead.

Challenge the King of the Beasts 0/1 (Beasts' Domain)

Kalda Treg and the hunters charge the King of the Beasts and assist you in attacking.

The King hits for a max ~12,500 and has several AEs:

Entangling Domain Vines: Single Target, Chromatic (-900)
1: Root

King's Charge: PB AE 20', (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 50347

King's Quake: PB AE 100', (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 36763
2: Stun (0.30 sec)

King's Roar: PB AE 100', (0)
1: Inhibit Melee Attacks by 1%
2: Silence

King's Slam: Single Target, (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 58346

King's Toss: Single Target, (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 58346

Magic of the Domain: Single Target, Unresistable (-650)
1: Increase Attack Speed by 35%
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 3200 per tick
3: Decrease AC by 225
4: Increase STR by 250
5: Increase DEX by 250
6: Increase ATK by 100
7: Trigger Effect: Call of the Domain on Fade
8: Increase corruption counter by 40

About every minute (or longer), the King spawns an add called "a beast" (hits for a max ~8,500; stunnable). If this isn't killed within about 60 seconds, the King consumes it and regenerates 5% health:

The King of the Beasts snaps up another beast and eats it whole!

Midway through this encounter (or, this may be a timed mechanism), you'll see a power-up emote:

The King is highly agitated! It appears to be building up power!

This step updates as you kill the King.

Search the chest found in the King's lair 0/1 (Beasts' Domain)

The King of the Beasts has been defeated. The draining effect the creature has harmed the land with will reverse itself, and a new King of the Beasts will rise to power.

I find this one to be a little annoying because the push on the mob when everyone is alive is really really bad. And while it appears you are infront of the mob you really need to pay attention to where the circle is drawn or it will tell you you can not see the target.


After you get it down this one isnt too bad did it last night 93 monk 95 shaman enchanter Had tank and two healer mercs one on reactive the other on standard healing. I think by his second aoe most of the helpers will be dead.

According to the posts I've read on the Sony boards, adds can be charmed & King can be mezzed, which could give you time to kill the adds, I reckon, if you had to do it that way.

Edit, yeah.. King can be mezzed .. so mez him and tash and slow before I hail. Adds can be charmed .. .fling 'em right back at the king.. they resist the 95 rk 1 charm sometimes.. so tash 'em first.

edit .. you got like a minute before he eats it.. i just try and charm, if that fails, i just mez it.

One cleric merc on reactive, one on balanced easily kept up with the king. Had a Dps wiz merc for most of the battle, got summoned and killed at about 20 percent or so. Adds are mezzable. I didn't have any issues anyways mezzing them. Then I just let him eat 'em. At the end of the battle the only mob alive from the assalt team was Kalda Treg, rest of 'em died. The mobs that assist you can be buffed. Mine got chanter haste. I'm sure it helped. This was really, really easy. Took 456 seconds to box it.

Edit....

The first time was really, really easy. Since then, I've been about 50/50 on this event. Prob done it ~ 10 times or so, TA'ng some friends for it. I did it with my friend Tsavong, also a necro, and warrior got pasted at ~ 30 percent or so, so we just kept it swapping agro with nec pets and healer mercs, and still managed to kill it. I think I had to make 3 - 4 new pets on the fly during that last part, heh. Then again, that was with a warrior in T4 HoT gear, basically tanking a T3 named.

I'm gonna say 10 million is a good guess based of parse and the fact he regened 3 times.

95 war, 95 mage, 95 bst, 94 clr and 93 shammy...clr merc

Tanking the king was not an issue as we had plenty of heals, the one add popped also was no big deal..what hurt us was killing the add before the king siphoned him..just didnt have the dps to consistantly get the add dead in time (seem to speed up at the end as far as pop rate)...fight was over an hour and a half before finally everyone was outta stuff to click healers went oom and we wiped...got him as low as 7%...rog merc instead of healer woulda turned the tide...hoping to add a dpser for tomorrow nights run at him. Tough event for the casual grouper, raiders should mow right through it (we were a hodge podge team of semi raid geared toons lol)

bottom line..sony feeds the dps machine again (waiting for the necro to post he soloed in 5 mins:P)

hope this helps

Any tricks to this one? I dinged 95 four times tonight, but best we did was getting him to about 49%. Do you dps the adds or go full burn on the King?
