How to pharm this item

Here's a quick how-to guide.

The mob spawns deep inside the middle wing. But this is the easiest wing to get inside.

First, you will need a decent group, capable of handling AG mobs. If your group can't clear the entrance mobs with ease, don't bother, since the mobs only get tougher.

Clear the two at the middle door and then open the door. You only need to clear down one side, I recommend the right. Pull and clear all the statics on the right side plus the 3 or so wanderers in the middle, including the one who pauses at the top end of the corridor. You need to clear fast enough to be able to move your group inside the door before the door guards repop. Frankly, if you don't have a group capable of this pace, move to WoS since you won't be able to handle deeper mobs.

Once you've cleared the right side of the corridor, move your group carefully into the right tunnel, hugging the wall and scouting a bit to avoid wanderers. Once you get into the right side corridor you will need to clear 2-3 drakkin model wanderers. Then take a peak ahead. The wall directly ahead, across the large open room lying perpendicularly ahead is a safe spot. You can carefully move your group to this wall and rest, rebuff, bio break, etc.

This long hallway runs east-west. The west end wall is also safe. You can get to it without clearing a single mob if you watch for wanderers and run down the middle staying away from wall statics. Mob aggro range in AG is very small. Once you get to the far wall, the aligned group of drakkins to your right is the camp for The Captain and his associates.

From this spot, heading north is a small room with two tunnels that branch off both north, one starting to the west and the other to the east. The goal is to run into one of those tunnels. You can make it TO the tunnel without aggro, if you're careful. But once IN a tunnel you will need to kill 2-3 wanderers. Have someone in your group watching behind for wanderers. The blackguard models (rogues) seem to like to sneak up from behind.

Once you've accomplished this, you're nearly to the camp. The goal now is to head north, turn right and then run along the right wall toward the lone drake who spawns at the very northeast corner of the wing, just before the edge whichd drops into the fire pit. If you watch the wanderers you can usually do this without fighting. But your group should be prepared to deal with aggro if things go bad. If you're careful you should be able to avoid aggroing more than one of the wanderers. If this happens, bring the mob along to an empty wall spot along this stretch and slay him there, watching for adds, which are very possible.

Once your group is at a "safe" spot along the northeast wall, your final goal is in sight. The goal is to engage the drake, kill him, and camp his spot. He's on a 25-minute timer, so this is an ideal camp spot as long as someone is timing his spawn. If your group is close to the wall none of the drakkin models who wander this section (pausing at the edge of the firewall and then turning around and going back whence they came) will get close enough to aggro.

Now from this spot look west across the face which abuts the fire pit. The drakkin mobs up on the platform are scaleguards. The one facing south is the PHer for this named.

Your puller can move along this edge and climb up onto the back of one of those columns to get line of sight on the PHer. Tagging it WILL bring at least one of the others as an add. So you need to split them. I leave how to you. I use a druid to snare and then CoHero him. Be sure to lure the snared mob back along the cliff edge. You'd best avoid having him slip into the pit or take a detour around the front side, since he might pick up some friends.

Have your tank bring in the PHer and slay him at your camp. The scaleguards hit pretty hard. Depending on your warrior and cleric's capacities, you might want to have a secondary healer helping. Also while you can accomplish all this without clearing any mobs other than the drake, I suggest you clear 2-3 drakkin wanderers to avoid any annoying adds to the fight.

As I've said elsewhere, the named is actually easier than her PHers. She's a caster and this lowers her dps.

The spawn and drop rates here are quite generous. I estimate the named spawns about 40% of the time and she dropped the pyrewood ear 4 out of 5 times for me.

Good luck!

So, if this thing "reeks of rotted flesh" as the lore implies, how then is it able to add 16 points to your charisma? I would think something that reeks would be a detractor.

It makes you more attractive to ogres and trolls, for starters.
