You say, 'Hail, Praesertum Matpa'

Praesertum Matpa says 'Busy man, can't chat. Important?'

You say, 'yes it is important'

Praesertum Matpa says 'Spit it out, I do not have all day. Wasting my time is NOT a good idea.'

(no idea where it goes from there...)

You say, 'fat man'

Praesertum Matpa says 'Have you visited the Plane of Growth lately?'

(they all say that in response to "fat")

You say, 'praesertum rhugol'

Praesertum Matpa says 'Rhugol is a fine man, we work very well together. He does performs his duties in an exemplary manner, with no wasted resources. Well, no wasted material resources that is. There is no shortage of warm bodies willing to do work for him, so when one is lost, it is of no great importance.'

You say, 'praesertum bikun'

Praesertum Matpa says 'That fool? A wastrel, a knave, a fool who should never be in such a position. His appetites will be his undoing! I will speak no more about this...creature.'

You say, 'praesertum vantorus'

Praesertum Matpa says 'Vantorus is a fine warrior, but he treats his men too well. This causes problems, in my mind, because they become more loyal to HIM than they do to our cause. I suppose it works, as long as Vantorus is loyal. But it is worrisome, still.'

You say, 'seru'

Praesertum Matpa says 'Seru is Seru. One of the greatest minds that ever lived, and he is not even a Gnome! One of the fiercest warriors the worlds have ever known, Halasmen envy him. In matters of espionage, even the Tier'dal could take lessons from him . High elves seek him out for knowledge on statecraft. Never has there been his like, and never again will there be. I am proud to serve him, and the grand cause of the Inquisition.'

Text This mob apparently does not spawn after 3 days exactly since I personally killed him on Friday 10/18/13 @ 7:06 am and when I revisited on Monday 10/21/13 at 6:30 am and hung around until 8:23 am the same day, He failed to return. I just want to get a bridle once or twice and makes it rather frustrating to have to stay logged in, camping his spot for hours and hours, hoping to catch him loading in. I am constantly tracking with parameters and alpha so if he pops my ranger will see it on list very quickly and he has yet to pop. Sad times bro's Smiley: disappointed

ok fallas, just took this mob down took all of 2o mins or so. got the shard of the hearth and mace of the prescience. i'd say he was easy with lvl 71 druid,70 ench, and 70 warrior. we let merc's tank him and warrior had only cleric doing heals. btw lic of the hearths dropped 3 scrols so for so each got a scroll in case earring is wanted by other toons..

Thanks Glassman lvl 71

I just got 3 bridles off of 3 kills last week. I have done this before and it is all random if you get one or not.

I've looked all over, and I just can't seem to figure out how to find this guy. Anyone got any detailed explanations on how to get to him? Or atleast a somewhat decent explanation please? It would be very appreciated. Thank you.
Where's He At?

He is in the SE of the large square buildings. You have to go up to the third floor. There will be two hallways with a single mob in the end, and behind the mob a flag/tapestry thing. You click on that flag to go up to the next level (either of the two). As soon as you click up, there will be another mob there, at the beginning of a winding hallway that goes to the other end (where the other flag would have taken you.)

If you follow the hallway, it'll open up to a larger room in a corner, with a door. That door leads to a room with a table, and that room into a bedroom. Matpa spawns in this bedroom.

This is true for all four Praesertums that you need to kill for the Arx Key and the Earring quest.

70 Beastlord and 70 Cleric - About a 30 min fight. Cleric Easily kept the pet up and beastlord occasionaly slowed (making sure not to pull agro) and dotted.

Killed all 4 Praesertums this way.
Easy Solo
# Jun 01 2005 at 9:17 AM Rating: Decent
Soloed him as a 70 shaman. Tanked with fully buffed, dual-wielding pet proccing leopard. Trushar was more than enough to keep puppy alive. I started chaining the lvl 70 poison dot on him at around 60% and he never even looked at me. Took about 20 minutes.

Fandele Longtooth, Xegony (formerly Zebuxoruk)

(edit- dropped a KEI scroll in addition to the mace and shard)

Took him down tonight, 65 beast, 61 beast, 62 pally, 65 cleric, this fight has been nerfed or so it seemed to us. He now Tash's, randomly fears( or so it seemed). Much harder than reports that Ive read so far. Didnt have a mana prob, cleric and pally had no probs keeping pets alive, but high, very very high magic resist on this guy. And as I said, he's throwing spells that arent listed here. Also, I started out as ally faction, still ally to most, cept the peeps in the "towers" where these mobs are. Needless to say, after killin him, and wipe from add death, corpse runs had to be performed by alts.

More Cake

This was the sencond guy i went after for a freind. The first was Rhugol, who i managed to duo with a 57 cleric.
This time Me, lvl 65, Cleric 57, and 65 necro,, and let me tell ya , was much easier then the first, lasted 20 mins or less and woot , More CAKE.
2 down...
# Apr 08 2004 at 1:29 AM Rating: Good
Got this guy down tonight on Tribunal. Ya know, for being lvl 66 mobs, they really arent that hard. We basically walk into the room, with all healers assigened on mages pet, and let the pets do their stuff. We had 2 chanters with DC'd pets, 2 shammys , 2 mages, 1 BL , and between all of em this guy had like 10 pets on him. So , myself (pally) and other melee kicked back feeling somewhat useless, laughing as we plucked a few arrows off,and cast meaningless 125 hp damage nukes. he went down so easily. There was no strain.I was way overmanned. So , i recommend doing this, ...

Take a mage with ya , invis if you are KoS, and get up to the room right before this guy. Have a chanter be one of your first peeps ya CoH , and then one by one, get the rest of the raid party from zoneline, to right in front of the doors to this mob. Get a chanter up there first so pesky adds can be mezzed till everyone is in the hall, able to assist. Kill adds , kill mob. Cake.
I would not risk doing this with a single group, simply because i'd rather be safe than sorry, but im sure it can be done. 2 clerics , 2 mages and 2 chanters could certainly do it i would think. Sick pets on mob , keep MT pet healed, and nuke. He did drop the hammer tonight, and i am sure everyones jaws would have dropped if that bridle had popped out.

2 down , 2 to go.

According to this website, he can also drop

Can anyone confirm this?

Spawn place?
# Dec 04 2003 at 12:35 PM Rating: Decent
How do you get to this guy. I know there is one in each of the 4 buildings. Just couldn't find him once in the building.

RE: Spawn place?
# Dec 08 2003 at 11:23 AM Rating: Excellent
The praesertum's are on the 4th floor of each of their respective buildings. In each building on the 3rd floor there will be 2 of each time of mob that can drop a concellium report, directly behind them there are panel type fixtures, clicking on these will warp you tot he 4th floor.

Bare caution, there are concellium droppable mobs as soon as you warp up and they sometimes are able to see invisible.

The 4th floor in each building is roughly in the shape of a V with two side rooms on each side of the V. The praesertum is in the 2nd room at the apex of the V.
My knowledge

My knowledge on Matpa:
=> his dps is very low average hit for about 200; max for 414.
=> he is a caster (enchanter), he ll try to gate when low hp.
=> he doesn t flurry.
=> he doesn t enrage.
=> he is immute run speed change.
=> he run away at 5% hp.

Pull secret:
Pull him in the jail where he banish, it s long but make the fight easier.

=> Shard of the heart for arx key / earring.
=> Mace of prescience (DMG10, delay18, +5 agi, +5% dodge, ALL/ALL)

The easiest way of dealing with these guys (because of their banish proc) is to use pets and range attacks. Send a pet in as your MT, keep all healers on that pet (or have healers /assist Praesertium to see which pet he's on to heal that pet), have everyone else use their pets on him to push him into the corner. Melees use range attacks only, nukers and DoTers are your friends here. So long as the pet has sufficient agro, noone should be banished and the mob should go down with no casualties to your groups.
