Not lootable

The rogue epic 1.5 piece isn't lootable in GoD era on Rizlona TLP. Looks like you have to be on that step to loot it?

On Mangler, this is live during the PoP/LoY era. Max hit on a 65 paladin without any shielding was 1750 (didn't stay too long so possibly higher). Has MOTM 5.

Casts Ball of Lava periodically.

4 Manned it -- 70 Shammy(End Time/ GoD/ Anguish geared) - 70 Rogue(End Time/GOD Geared) - 70 Rogue (Ele planes+Time geared) - 70 Monk Group loot + GoD weps and some AA's, defensive's/utilities

Sham and x2 rogues were maxed AA's, offensive and defensive.

Cul is perma rooted, so Shaman pulled all adds off him and slowed them first. Once they were slowed we moved in.

Rogue tanked it (Dodge 3, Dodge 8%, Parry 3) --Shaman kept heal over times on me constantly and only needed 2 quick heals..

Slow seemed very resistant so we didn't bother trying. Was pretty easy, shaman tanked all adds keeping them slowed, and keeping rogue tank hotted up.

Rogue did not have virtue, and had 10k life, 662/865 - 6heroic agi, 10heroic sta

Where is The Firewatcher? Here you go:

When you enter from Sol B hug your right wall until you are in the (essentially) Northernmost point. He is North of Erpar and Kushara.

Killed today with 75 rogue, 75 Druid, a cleric merc and warrior merc. Focused on Culthor and killed him then worked on his guardians. Druid popped spirit of wood and natures boon and rogue popped steadfast servant for haste before fight. Had no trouble.

Just did Culthor with an 80 rogue, 80 tank merc and a 75 healer. The best strategy today seems going straight for Culthor. The tank merc will hold all the adds and Culthors agro and is easy to heal (cleric used half mana bar for the whole fight). Just dps Culthor down with the rogue, that's what they are made for. Also going straight for Cuthor spares all the hassle with the adds, summoning and respawn speed.

confirmation on hp

just took this guy out twice with a 85 SK, 3 rogues and a healer merc.

We can confirm he has less hp without his guards. And if you spawn him back to back his guards spawn with him the second time just for a fair warning.
Not as tuff as he looks

This encounter wasn't nearly as bad as I though it would be. The hardest part seemed to be getting everyone to the right side of Sol C.

Our group: 75 warrior, 72 SK, two 72 clerics, 71 shaman, and 70 rogue (me).

Once we got everyone to the kobold side of Sol C, I scouted ahead and saw that Culthor and his goons were already up. We cleared from the zone-in all the way to the corner room immediately to the west of Culthor, including the little cubbies along the way, to eliminate the chance of adds while kiting. The SK then pulled all six guardians with Dread Gaze and took off with one of the clerics in tow. The rest of us charged Culthor, who turned out to be a total wuss -- he was dead in less than three minutes. I looted my embers and the chest and had the SK bring the guardians back to the corner room where we wasted them. I gave the chest loot (boots) to one of the clerics and we all gated out.

Next up is Renux, which we'll do with the same group except for swapping one of the clerics with another DPS.

Killed with Lvl 80 Cleric, 80 Chanty, 80 War, and me (76 Rogue) Took a bit, but we managed to have him take on the damage from all the adds. Chanty mezzed what she could, killed green and grey conned adds with her pet and nukes. Adds were dying from ripostes from tank, haha.

76 Rogue on Quellious (Rodcet)

P.S No need to collect the Doomfire pieces if he's already spawned. Don't think that was mentioned anywhere on here. :)

We did this with 2 groups, all anguish geared lv 75's, and all we did was go in and kill Culthor while we ignored the adds and we did this no problem. I don't even think anyone died. Once he was dead we then killed the adds so they don't despawn.

We did try to kill the adds first but they respawned too quickly (6 min or so) and that turned out to be a wipe for some reason. Never tried kiting them so it was better to go in and just kill him while ignoring the adds since more healing and dps was focused on Culthor and the adds didn't seem to hit for very much.

Went in with:

71 Cleric
71 Shaman
70 Warrior
72 Enchanter
69 Rogue

My friend and i 2boxed it.

Warrior pulled guards, and i picked them off one by one on the shaman with slow.

Then warrior, cleric and rogue goes in and started killing boss, i tagged along on enchanter to slow it.

Went back on Enchanter, and took a few of the mobs so we tanked a few each. I kept up healing on Enchanter and Shaman.

And the warrior and rogue killed boss with cleric healing.

Average 10k buffed and 500 Aa's on all chars except rogue who's a girlie twink. Was easy fight - Dident take much time to get it done.

Max hits around 300 from guards, max hit from boss 700. With a few aa's it should be an easy fight for a few ppl playing together, we did it 2-3 boxing total of 5 ppl in the zone.

first off dont kill his guards the more u kill the harder he gets chose 2 pple to be kiters dru ranger bard some one that knows what they are doing we had a 70 ranger in guild kite them for us he eather died or lost agro but some how i ended up kitin them (64 Enc) How To Kite Them
first off u need to be on the other side of him where the mob is that the rogue has to talk to and do his turn in u have ur ranger infront of ur MT (recomend 10K+ for this) as soon as the rogue does his thing ur kiter takes off gets agro of the mobs drops down into lava and runs though the tunnel seeings how the main mob is teathered realy dont have to worrie bout him chasing ur kiter as soon as kiter out of room have RL tell the MT to enter Culthor the Gatekeeper's room get agro turn his back to the raid (no reason realy just helps rogue with there jobs and gives ranja's the back too) now keep in mind some mobs see invis so if ur ranger or if u chose a dru to kite has AA invis they will be pulling a massive train have a secondary kiter drop down into same tunnel that the kiter took off in incase of kiter death in our case kiter died i was on TS with RL and kiter RL asked for some one to jump in and kite them when they started to come back me being the psycho enchanter i am said i would do it i died of course but not before the raid had killed the mob we where after of corse after i died the had 6 mobs in camp to contend with but they dont hit any harder than 300 (my enc only has about 900 ac fully buffed no defensive aa's) we had a 10K+ tank and 6 clerics running a 3sec CHeal rotation clerics all finish with about 55 mana was 36 in raid average lvl 68

oh one other quick thing on how to get to the other side of him while he is not up have a mage run into the room behind him and camp out have ur entire raid CoHed though the zone makes things lot simpiler there are 2 mobs in room besides triger mob but any 60+ mage should be able to waste them

What an odd strat, why dont you kill the guards then send tank up there with 3 clerics and call assist... we did it twice and did it that way and no one died... we only had 47 people...

Course we had way overkill, once we got on him he dropped in < 30sec but we are all anguish geared too lol

Went in with 14 people for a rog epic fight. It was interesting the hardest part of it were all the adds we had a bard kiting but some how a pet smacked one of the kited mobs doing enough to get it to summon the bard =/. Then they wen't after the clerics(only had three) downed them when the mob was at 25%, thought we were going to get smashed but the tank tanked him with out heals from 25% to dead was really nice....Killed him with 5 people left up rog looted he dropped the bow as well as epic item then we died =p(I got smashed before i could get off the AETL). All in all was a very fun fight

Took him down last night on Bristlebane. Had 6 groups avg 65. There are 6 guards around him. They are not instant respawn, but have a short respawn timer (the 6 mins listed below is very close). We accidentally pulled the guards first. What a mess that was. Got them killed and while rezzing the dead, they come again. The only way to completely clear agro was to die, zone out, or camp (/q).

Second pass was somewhat better. Enter from the SolB side. After you come out of the small bldg just before the Gatekeeper's, there is a room on the left. Have your forces stay in that room. You have to move quickly, so have several kiters ready. Pull the guards to the entrance and keep them there as long as possible. When the guards are gone quickly rush the Gatekeeper. For his level he is not that difficult. The hardest part is keeping the guards out of the fight. If the first kiter dies another has to be ready to keep the guards entertained. We had one guard stay behind and off-tanked it while the other jumped the Gatekeeper. He dropped fairly fast, but the kiter died and the guards returned with about 2% hp on the Gatekeeper. It wasn't pretty, but we won. Then we had a rogue drag all the bodies to the front for rezzes.

Sorry for the book. He dropped the Rogue 1.5 epic piece, the shoulder pads, and a crap Scorching Flame Earring. Loot sucks for his level.

Can you just have a few TM's ready like emp encounter? or do they need to be pulled out room?

This is by far one of my favorite zones in the game. Nice to see SoE bring some action here for rogue epic 1.5. This guy and his guards are no joke. Defenitely need 4 or 5 groups to kill him.(at 65's before OOW) If you step on the lava by him, his guards will kill you fast. Wiped a 60+ group in a matter of seconds.Only real way to kill him is kite his guards around while you beat him down. (When they die he gets pissed and hits a lot harder) Fairly easy to get to with a good group of 60ish. He's always been up when I go there. Which is often. He is easiest to get to via the Kobold side(zone in is in SolB) Work on some faction in Sol A and just walk passed the Kobolds in Sol C if you don't wanna mess with em. However all mobs see invis in the zone. So if you die deep in. You are gonna need a summon
