Down to 2 groups all solteris geared weapons too. Fight took 15 mins, 6k hitter, 650 disease resisted all ae's, single ramp. Simple mob easiest of all fabled gods for the weapon it drops. Farm this guy if you want a fast easy weapon solteris quality. Probably groupable for SoF raid lvl geared guilds, 2 clerics tank slower 2 dps with mmm/crystallos weaps. Our solteris tank never came clsoe to dying 50% whole time with 3 healers on him~
Fabled!

Please add The Fabled Bertoxxulous. Red con to level 80. Hits around 6k, with single target Rampage and uses the spell Fabled Rot of the Plaguebringer.

1 and a half groups was not even close enough to kill him (Solteris/SoF geared), but I got a neat pic! :D

In case you're interested in that sort of thing, it's pronounced "Lix-en-vahm." It's very silly to not have vowels thrown in the mix there so I may not be entirely right.

Seems like it though.

The new mobs are probably related to the bypass grummus quest yet unsolved.

Fought a Corrupted Reaver in the chapel. Another guild was in zone and had just killed Carpin. Not sure if that's what spawned it or not. Regular size skelly model. lots of HP but not a real hard kill.

#lordkileraunt, Posted: Jan 14 2003 at 10:35 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Bah, no key is needed to get into this zone. I got in there at lvl 46 as an enchanter. What I did was hug the left wall and lev as high as I could go in POD. Then when I got to the castle, I went around to the left side and to the back. I got as close as possible to the castle wall, and camped out. Then I logged back in and camped out again. When I logged in again, i walked through the wall. And then I ran to the middle of underneath the castle, and zoned into the ruins. Then to get to the second level of the ruins. I went to the pillar on the right hand side that's closest to the chair. I faced the wall of the pillar that faces the rest of the ruins, back to chair, and I did that camp thingey twice, then i casted lev, walked forwards into null space, and levved down to the second level where bertuxxxilous supposedly spawns. I bypassed two keys....ha
#lordkileraunt, Posted: Jan 14 2003 at 10:48 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) oops, lev might now work, i didn't cast lev to get down, i did cast illusion: air elemental which has levitate. So, I don't really know if lev is possible in the zone anymore or not. But the first time i did it, i took around 300+pts of fall dmg and wasn't encumbered. Not that far of a drop, but might kill if your encumbered 2:1

We were pulling Rats to a save spot, we had pulled to in the past. Just beyond it, by a large rock about the 3rd time we had been to this camp, deeper into the Rat tunnels in COD, found this Evicerator mob.

Kinda nasty, didnt have a huge amount of hps. Conned even at 65th level. Hit for 900+ without Defensive, flurried and rampaged. Immune to slow, was nasty fight. Dropped some caster boots with 35hps 35 mana 8intel some other physical stats. On my newbie necro now, level 50 minimum so he isnt getting full stats but its more hps than his GEBs were.

Wondered if anyone else had killed him and found if thats is hit only drop. Not worth it IMO, lost a party member killing him and almost lost cleric. Nasty mob for the drop. Giant Rat looking guy.

We took in a couple groups to check out Eviscerator Fwexar who was Lvl 65 and immune to snare/slow/etc. He dropped both clerics we had with us, but tanked/nuked him down shortly thereafter. He quad hits for average 500 a shot on main tank and clerics/casters claim to have been hit for average of 600's and 700's. He only dropped one item for us, that being same as listed above. Sepultura Sandals...caster foorwear with 9ac, sta5, int7, agi7, hp30, mana30, sv pois and dis 5. Not sure he's worth the effort if thats his only drop. ;p

Theres a way to get CoD key solo, its in PoD, Grimror asks for 4 larvae flesh heres how ya do it

Malarian larva=PH for Harrion larva, found in the swamp sorta near zone in but down towards skeeters and flies.

Planarian Larva=PH for Generian Larva, these are found roaming out in the bile and pusling area.

Tsetian pupa=PH for Scaevian Larva, found around same area as planarian.

Tachnian caterpillars(any I think)=PH for the Sengian Larva spawns near where the tachnian spawns, I hunted in northern part of zone near pusling/rat house.

Note the first 3 Larva's I named have no E on the end, this is how you know the correct PH, the PH is always up or will be the named if not up, provided someone hasn't killed it, seems to have a 12-15 min respawn. Anyways the reward is an instaclick Resist Disease item that is only usable from inventory and when id'd says it is the key to CoD, also goes on your keyring once used, thought this would be useful for the soloers/trackers out there, you basically need tracking for this, its pretty impossible to do without it.

I see someone in Fires of Heaven uses the EQ Emulator to get their screenshots of gods (mobs in the emulator often show up stacked on each other like that, and it's obviously so easy to get next to these straight-posed gods without any aggro =P).

They don't need to use the EMU to get screen shots, unlike you they can go there and see the things they are about to kill. Its obvious you use the EMU. You might also notice a buff on the screen shot...eye of zomm. Log off your emu server and play the real game and you might learn what can be done.

After you kill Grummus, a Planar Essence spawns, form of an air elemental. Hail it and you become flagged for the Crypt of Decay/Ruins of Lxanvom, whichever you call it. Once flagged, you can enter it countless times, you're perma-flagged.

Hope that helps.

Does killing Grummus set a flag so you can enter the dungeon anytime afterwards or does killing Grummus let you enter the ruins just once?
