Spawns several a Fledgling War Boar during the fight with him. All in the pen nearby.

Every 5.5mins or so he emotes: Glykus Helmir blows a carved boar horn. 'My pets! I enfuse you with the power of Zek. Grow and Battle with Glykus!'

(yes enfuse should be infuse, I believe)

He will do this up to 4 levels of difficulty:
a Fledgling War Boar (lvl 55)
an Enraged War Boar (lvl 61)
a Fierce War Boar (lvl 62)
a Greater War Boar (lvl 63)
an Enchanted War Boar (lvl 65)

If they haven't added to the fight yet, Enchanted War Bars will come to his aid after the next power up.

Great for finishing off Achievement: I'm Boared!

slew him today on my level 78 druid with no merc as God intended, soloed him down 3 dots and my DS plus 1.5 cliky, he was cake, he summoned a little boar that grew in size every 30 secs to a bigger boar, he dropped wand, he had wand gra[hic in cave
Easy kill.....

Killed him today with my 73 sk (650 AAs), my 65 box shaman (550 AAs) and 2 mercs (J1 healer and J1 tank).
Fight wasn't even challenging. He dropped the sword.....

He was up by the lower zone-out when I aggro'd him. He sees invis. Tried to just zone out on him but when I clicked the pillar it said "The doors are held firmly shut by magical forces." I'm guessing aggroing him makes you unable to zone out.
Easy Ranger Kill

Solo'd him today; despite his ability to summon, he can be killed with Headshot via Arc of Arrows. I shot him with my bow, got a few shots off before he summoned me (inc one successful Headshot), and then I hit him with the Arc of Arrows. Took three successful Headshots in total (I guess he has more than 65000 hit points... maybe somewhere in the 200k range) but once I got the third Headshot message, he went down.

Total fight time around 25 seconds. Dropped the wand.

Are you sure it is a 24 hour re-spawn? Killed him yesterday at 4:20-4:25, zoned in today at 4:15 and have been waiting almost an hour, and not up. May have changed his re-spawn timer or something? Anyhow, as of right now on Zek, the 24 hour re-spawn is not correct. Will wait a little longer and see. May edit this later with his new? spawn time.

*edit- Waited another 30 minutes, and pop... So re-spawn is like 25 hours give or take 15 minutes. *Note* Has dropped Blood Runed Battle Wand both times so far... thinking the SBoD is rare. (Not just from 2 kills, but reading posts below.) Really, really wanting that sword for my warrior, lol. Anywho hope this info helps a little.

Glykus Helmir and Drundar alternate exit

Go downstairs (jump in the pet, head to the south exit) and look at your map and head south.

Go all the way to the end of the zone where it curves sothwest. You are in an area with several pig pens, it's pretty obvious.

Glykus Helmir is at the vey end. I didn't have any adds when I fought him but he does run on low HP and you get an add as he wanders off.

Also, at the end of the zone here is a clicky object to exit the zone. It's like a short pillar or something, it has that "what does this do?" look about it.

The main zone exit by the way, is where you zone in but at the end of the hallway.

His spawn time is slightly less than 24 hours or perhaps a little random, he's usually there if I come back exactly 24 hoursa later

Camping him
If I log in right at his spawn spot, or up gainst the wall, it can be deadly. Normally you can invis to him, kill him and perhaps get a roamer to add. If I just pop in on him by logging in, I swear all the mobs in sight come running and now you have perhaps 3 mobs and Glykus to fight. Normally this is OK, but the pigs in the pen are activated by fights and can turn into enchanted war boars if the fight goes on long enough and are a serious problem beause they add to the others. So "use the exit" you say. It can be impossible while you're being summoned so don't be surprised if you can't exit.

I would suggest if you're camping him, find a quiet spot to log in to. Right outside the pen area is a corner with no mob in it. I would suggest there.

Done with 3 and a merc. 65 Ranger 200 aas all defensive and offensive avaiable at lvl, Bst box with about 40 aas mostly on double attack and spell casting reinforcement nothing spectacular and 60 shammy with about 200 plus aas with a tank merc. Took about 2 minutes and looked a bit shaky at first. Ranger tanked at first until about 50 percent popped weaponshield then fell back and popped true shot. Shammy said was chain healing merc to keep alive and bst was just dpsing. The ae is nothing to worry about except its 25 minute snare and has 72 counters so need 2 casts of greater remove curse. Goodluck guys.

ok after farming a few days now...If you do not push him against the wall Boars will add he spawns maybe 6 an enraged war boar, and they evolve into greater war boars, then enchanted war boars. If you get the boars just zone out and reset.

Just went to mess around. Now i see on track its 10 boars. As time progresses the boars change into the ones listed above. They are in the pens directly next to him. If you pull him to the very corner opposite of him they will not add until he runs and you happen to get close. If you dps is high enough they will not spawn at all.

Saw him up at end of boar pen. Soloed w/ 80 Druid Demi+ geared. Was bored killing stuff in zone and saw him up. Had the Split Blade of Destruction in his hand. Died pretty fast and I had ZERO adds/boar spawns. Perhaps the adds are timed to pop if he doesn't die in a certain amount of time? /shrug Cannot be snared at all and will run when low on health aggroing any mobs it passes by.
Just another one.

Okay, Headboss duo'd him at level 70 with a cleric, maybe I should have a go at it at level 75 I thought. He appeared to be holding the Blood Runed Battle Wand. Full self buffs on a ranger with 1106 aa's, 14166 hp, 2786 ac, average level of gear COA. I cleared the room, and pulled with a debuff, engaged and the first few seconds seemed okay. Then there was one spawned add, and I was at 50%. I hit a hot pot, and hp's were still going south. I never got a chance to hit any discs as the fight started off with me casting and lining up the add for hail of arrows, etc, and then it was suddenly too late to worry about the fancy stuff, when what I really needed to do was gate out. Fortunately I had my Worker Sledgemallet on a bandoleer switch and I gated out with about 5% health left, and he was about 85%. I did get a skill up in 2 Hand Blunt using the mallet, so there was some good from this failed fight. (SOE raised the skill limits a few weeks ago, and I haven't maxed all my skills yet).

I checked the fight details, and he cast gravel rain which I resisted, he flurried a lot, max hit was 638. My endurance faded was a message I saw in the spell box, so maybe that was my Form of Endurance getting debuffed somehow. I was also missing a bunch of buffs shortly after getting to the Overthere. He summoned and saw invis also.

Maybe with better gear some more aa's and a better plan going in I will be able to do it next time.

Duo'd him with lvl 75 warrior with 19k hp and lvl 75 cleric with just over 10k mana. Cleric didnt even go below 75% mana

No Real strat, i just stayed on him and at 38% or around that he's Summoned 4 Enraged Boars. I really didnt want to kill the add's. So when this mob dropped so did his buddys.

Oh btw, i kept the cleric right next to me b/c he cast "Gravel Rain" which snared me.

He dropped the Glyphed Rune Word and Ornate Silk Robe Pattern

I've repeatedly duo'd him on Zek with 65shm(me) and a 70mnk I don't even run oom so i know it can be easily done

I am highly skeptical that they had such stats unless they were seriously bored to death, the fact that for cleric only Lanathadar has reached the 14k mark the next being Kanon at 13.7k, and warrior hp for near 18k is... impossible atm until Deathknell gets farmed, the highest recorded value unbuffed is 17.7k, the next 17.4k. The fact the people with these extremes aren't even on the same server, makes me think you exagerated those values significantly.

That... and you don't need anywhere near those stats to duo this guy.

i said almost 18k... (Headboss) look him up... and he was using a cleric that was in the same guild... and yes... hes around 14k, look up the guild... #2 guild in EQ i think (Crimson Tempest)
