I don't think it's ever been said where.. just how long respawn is. Where does the SoC spawn? Is it in the room that you get to after clicking the chair?

Level 75 and a nerfed Bert on easy mode.

Try it on Al'Kabor, where the max level is 65 and Bert isn't slowable.

Nerfed? I raided Bert back when PoP was current, it was the same fight. And It wasn't slowed. No one can do that fight at 65, what a stupid thing to say, the point was that I did whole event at 75, and that is impressive for what it is. Don't think so? Try it.

I wouldn't play on Al'Kabor if you paid me, I thought I waste a lot of time on this game.. to do it still on the same content for the last 10 years is insanity. Don't even try to think we play the same game anymore.

So out of sheer boredom, I decided to see if I could spawn Bert by myself. My first 2 attempts failed as I was too slow to kill all of the kings in time. Those attempts were while using a Warrior merc.

I went back today to attempt again and was successful in spawning him...

Followed shortly after by successfully killing him. Did the fight completely solo without the help of a merc or outside buffs.

And, no, I am not an uber geared cleric.

So yes it can in fact be done solo by a cleric. Now lets see you DPS classes get it done :-P

Cleric (13k Mana)
Warrior ( 20k / 3,9k AC ) ( boxed )
Beastlord ( Demigear)

After the first four nameds , simply pacify the trash and single / double pull the Nameds. That will save you a lot of time.
Make sure you got somebody to cure Bertoxx AE , otherwise you will run out of mana . We had to use Veteran AA to restore Mana.
no Dispells or anything as far as I remember.

Killed today with me 3 boxing the event. Demiplane / deathknell level gear. Cleric, bard, warrior. Long and boring with just myself boxing but did pretty good on aa for cleric and bard lol.

Killed with 5
# Nov 26 2006 at 4:37 AM Rating: Decent
Yeah we killed him with 5 last night.

Mains were 75 Dru/Pal/Zerker

Boxed Cleric and Bard.

He is kinda spikey at times tho chain CHing on the one Clr was just about enough, I self patched a couple times.

Obviously easier with a discing Warrior than a pre-occupied Paladin.

Finally fixed my Planar Progression! hehe
3 groups

Slowed every one of the named mobs including bert last night no probs, most were slowed before malo even landed. No idea where people are getting immune and unslowable. Fairly easy event, our guild did it on stromm last night in 104 mins with 40ish people. Was fun :)
Dropped two of the masks.

Yes, Bert is lvl 75 from what I've been told. So his level is incorrectly shown.
# Sep 03 2004 at 4:38 PM Rating: Default

Dropped "The Rotting Fist" and "Decayed Shoes of the Plaguebringer".

Bert is easy if you have a good raid. We had 50 or so people with a level average of 64. Imo, the hardest part was getting to him.

No one in raid died during the Fight. But some died after due to the AE DoT he casts. It takes 20% off of a toon with 6k hp per tick.

Just watch out for Bert's rampage. His Ramp Box is HUGE! Max Melee range is important. Avoid getting caught in his page box at all costs if your not the tank or RT

His melee range is so large however it is pretty easy to avoid the rampages.

Just killed Bert on 7th hammer with coalition. We did the cycle in 1 hour and 33 min. was just 4th attempt at him. Had no problems with wall bugs or cornering as we pushed the kings and Bert into the corners each time and had no problems.
Wall bug
# Apr 09 2004 at 1:48 AM Rating: Default
As of right now, you can't wall or corner Bertox and a slew of other mobs. We had Bertox warp out of the wall and came from nowhere and started picking off healers and casters and before we knew it he had wiped us.

Nasty wall/corner bug thanks to the dx9.. woot, go SoE.

EDIT: Last patch fixed wall bug so it seems.

Bert strat

Spoiler incoming:

First off Spectre of Corruption respawns 6 hours after her death in case the previous Bert run fails. Here is a break down of how I run the Bert script, your results and methods may vary:

Raid set up will depend on your guild, but as this event is suppost to be pre-Saryrn I will do the make up as my guild is now (Emp killed, no VT clears yet):

Main Assist(MA)Group: three warriors, bard, 2 clerics
Second Main Assist Group: Two more warriors, Main Knight (we use SK), Bard, 2 clerics
Split Group: 3 monks, druid, cleric, shaman
DPS Group: Bard + rogues or wizzies or both
The rest of the groups should be balanced with all remaining healers balanced througout. This event is heavily dependant on Necros and Enchanters, have at least 4 total combined.

Logic on group make ups are simple, you need your main tanks with a bard (explained later) as well your second main assist group is flexible and dependant on numbers, but the warriors/knights put into this group should be capable of split tanking.

The Event:
First off, spend the time explaining to the raid that there will be no AFK time, there is no room for poor quality two boxing and that everyone needs to be alert for the next 2 hours and 10 minutes. Get everyone shrunk as small as they can. Explain to people that they need to have a way to shrink themselves if they are a large race without shm/bst in their group. Set your MT rotation for the Kings right away, I recommend 4 deep, but if you cannot go 4 deep, you need at least 2. Set your MA now, should be a warrior who is fast targetting and can maintain aggro. As well set your main splitter (Knight). Have the clerics know their rot beforehand. 5 deep is okay and should be enough till Bert. Buffing: Max HPs, mana regen haste and atk buffs. For MA groups all warriors and knights need GoD and Ferocity. Magic resists are very important, as the Carpin Script should have taught you.

Kill Spectre of Corruption, straight forward Melee. Once the SoC dies, have everyone move to the North room. There are four rooms, North, east south and west, have a map handy as you will need to lead them to each room without going thru the center. You have 5 minutes from when you kill the SoC before the script timer starts. Once the script starts you have a maximum of 2 hours to kill Bertoxx so make sure you note when the emote is broadcast to the zone.

Once everyone is in the north room, move them in right away and have the caster get to the walls. When the script starts, the mobs start walking into the room through the 2 entrances, this is when the tanking/mezzing begin. KEY: everyone has to assist the MA at all times Once all mobs are dead, OTM them to the east room (clockwise). What follows is the same proceedure for every room that follows:

Once everyone is stopped outside the next room, have the MA/MT step up to the front while the first monk in the split group runs in, tags a mob and runs away from the raid and FD's. What this does is allow for better targetting for your mezzers. The monks will die, and die alot, thus the rezzing/buffing crew in their group. Once the mobs have been broken up a bit, the MA should announce to his healing crew he is going in, we will rush in as will the main splitter and fun begins. MA gets his target, splitter has his and the necros and chanters should be mezzing anything that moves. Bards outside of the MA group can help with mezzing if your mezzing crew is having a hard time. Bards in MA groups should have Psalm of Veeshan up at all times during the raid. Systematically clear all mobs in the room, until none remain. OTM the raid to the next room in a clockwise motion. Always have them stop short and repeat the above proceedure.

For "Kings" (Adan's) the proceedure is only slightly different. First off the split tank will not be splitting unless it is to save a cleric. Second the MT for each king needs to be called. If you preset your rotation as mentioned, just rotate thru them from room to room (king 1: mt1, king 2: mt2...) to keep evasive/defensive ready to go. For all kings, have your tanks hold their engage call a few seconds longer then usual, once engage is called, get the king pinned. Now most of the kings are straight forward but here are a few need to knows (go thru beastiary to review them): I believe the 7th king procs a 5 sec stun, odds are if engage is called too quickly you will lose lots of folks as aggro bounces. 8th king dies and spawns the 9th king right immediately, the same tank should be able to tank both, but warn the casters to stay on the walls and have the MT for 8th aware that 9th is inc. 10th, 11th and 12th kings all proc Life Taps and nasty ones, your MTs MUST have GoD and Ferocity and your MT Bard must be playing PoV and never let it drop. 3500 and 5000 hp Lifetaps will own you if your not ready for it.

Speed is an issue, you need to be done the 12 kings in about 90 minutes to be on a good pace. Once the 12th king dies, do not OTM them yet. Make sure everyone is buffed with max Hps and regens. Ignore trying to buff resists as odds are you will not resist them (resist check on Bert's ae is -500). Once everyone is buffed OTM to te next room, which will be the fight room. All the mobs in this room need to be mezzed or petted (necros can get up to level 60 and chanters 64). If your dps is so so i highly recommend petting. Use shamans to get malosinia or at least malos on them and bards to help the chanters and necros with mezzing till they are all debuffed and ready to be petted. Once the mobs are under control, move the raid into the two little ramps that look at the center port in area. get your MT into one corner or the other that is closest to that center area. Have your rot check range and designate a rampage tank and 2 good healers plus secondaries on the RT. The RT will need to be smart, ie, intelligent. As the pulling of bert is easy with the new disciplines. The RT goes into the center room and left (there will be mobs to the right, but they willnot aggro unless your tank runs around with his head cut off). Have the RT target Bert (who should be on the other side of the port out block), have him give the cleric rot a 3 second warning that he is pulling then: Defensive, tag bert, invulnerable disc, and run up to the MT and stand there.

At this point corner him and push him in. DPS is the key, but this should be enough to get you close to winning, execution is the hard part

note on king pulling, done this before with fairly decent success using bard pull fading memories and tags. also on that raid we used one knight as trash tank and one as "prepper" prepping mob basically means while mt and raid kills one you target one and TM it then the MT assist you for target and you jump to another, makes for seemless killing as much as is possible.

This strat was designed for a guild that has not reached sol ro, and i doubt many guilds at that stage can ae this event. Just not enough mana.

Another way to do it:
whole raid stands in the NW corner of the center room, monkeys bring mobs which get raped
You can even setup AE clearing if you have enough wiz/mages to AE DD and chantys to AE stun/mez
