The description is wrong, he is fully slowable, doesn't mitigate.

Not Charmable
# Jun 27 2005 at 3:38 PM Rating: Decent
I tried to charm this guy with my 64 charm "Command of Druzzil" but he wasn't having none of that. Kicked my butt. I grabbed an add mob that I had mezzed and charmed him. Halfway throught the fight i was at 50% health when charm broke, I made for the zone point and wound up needing a rez in pok. Ya, doesn't that suck. Can't use him for a pet, but when slowed with Forlorn Deeds, he slows "mostly" and my DC pet can tank him losing maybe 25-30% health. I do through a few 836 pt nukes in to be safe.

The message my shaman gets is "Mostly Successful" to Turgur's Insects, a level 51 Shaman slow spell. Mob IS indeed slowable

When casting slow on him I get this message:
Your spell was successful, mostly.

Not sure exactly what that means, but it doesn't say he is totally immune to slow. I am a 58 enchanter using the lvl 44 slow "shiftless deeds" on him.

(If you're wondering why I don't use the lvl 57 slow "forlorn deeds" on him, it's because the mofos in the bazaar are selling it for 25k and I can't afford it. :P)

Anyway, hope my ramblings are of use to someone wanting to fight him.

As of at least 2/10/04 these are now slowable

Unslowable, Unrootable, Unsnareable, period.
DoTs work well on him, as do stuns and DD's.

Has considerable HP (10-12K by my best count)
Melee's for close to 300 a pop which when not slowed means a High HP tank, or spam healing required.

Summons (which if you have a Tank that can hold good agro isnt an issue)

Drops basically all the same vendor loot that the other trash does here

basically an all around nuisance.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 31 2003 at 6:08 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Most people know when they are able to sit during a fight, if they have been a caster long enough to get to poi. BUT sitting during this fight is suicide. Being unslowed, and having very erratic agro sitting is almost always fatal for a caster.
Archaic Immunity

The only spell I've discovered to land is cripple (disempower line of spells). Magic debuffs will not lower resistance. Whether debuffed or not, he will still be 100% immune to slows.
Level off..
# Jun 14 2003 at 11:22 AM Rating: Decent
I saw this one yellow to 51 today.. but the immunity to almost all debuffs is not taken into account here :P
Doable but tough

I have taken out these things many times as a 58 Beastlord with a 49 cleric healing. It' more then a little scarry but as long as I don't get added I can get them 9 times outa 10. Course thats with a bit of pet tanking but still.

Still haven't had the nerve to take one truely solo though. I think Spot might get pissed as me if I made her tank that long, good pet heals or not.

some are stunnable

This mob seems to come in two different flavors.

They are both immune to mez, slow and snare.

They both pop up the message "This monster is immune to the stun portion of this effect."

The thing is that I have a couple of different chat windows. The message from this mob appears in one of the windows for one flavor and in the other for the other. Doesn't really sound important, does it? Nope, except that when it appears in one of the windows, it's lying... The mob is actually stunned for the duration of the spell. When it's in the other, it's really immune.

I wish I could figure out what the message is classified as, and why they appear in different places. The only way to tell the two types apart is to try to stun it and see if it stands there looking stupid for a few seconds.

this thing was born pissed, it doubles for 500 often and attacks very fast. its agro sticks. i remember an enchanter who tashed it, this thing took a straight dive down to hit him in the middle of the battle when a warrior was taunting it the whole time we were all taunting it and 3 seconds agro the agro the chanter died. the agro is random and fierce, it seems to agro casters more often then melee when it can. beware of this thing, its very smart for an npc.

This place is weird with tash. When I was a younger chanter, late 40s or so grouping in POI, I could not tash these things. I just couldn't do it, because the warriors could not get them off me. (I know it's not resistable, I'm talking about I couldn't do it and live :) Now that I'm bigger, late 50s, I find that if I wait til 90% I can tash and debuff just fine. Maybe because the warriors I group with are higher level and have better taunts now? I don't know. But anyhow if you're a young chanter, new to POI, I recommend keeping the tash to yourself.

Listless Power Works
# Oct 28 2002 at 4:25 PM Rating: Decent
I am able to get a melee debuff on the archaic model, Listless Power from Beastlord spell line. It does not help much, but it is better than nothing, As this is the only one I have.

I suspect other classes should be able to get a real good debuff on this bugger.

Still, not that tough to drop for the level listed. 61 BRD, 60 DRU and 54 BST did it multiple times with ease.

Cant be mezzed
# Oct 22 2002 at 10:34 PM Rating: Decent
Was immune to Apathy(level 61) mezz also. When I mezzed it simply said immune. Not the "with this spell" so I'm assuming he aint being mezzed for anything 8).

He was immune to Glamour of Kintaz. Anyone have better luck with other mezzes?
Always working on more research, will update as I can. Feel free to email with questions or I will post when I can also.
