53 druid with tank merc (I'm mildly geared) was able to drop Vimidon with ease. He does summon. Dropped the whittled bone ring for me.

Lower Group Kill

So many people hold off from going to Natimbi until they are in thier 50s but as a group you can do it much lower. We did Vimidon twice with no problem as our alts consisting of:

44 Cleric
45 Berzerker
46 Enchanter
47 Beastlord

When a 55 Necro at the WF Camp announced that the Fierce Crag was up in his camp if we wanted it, we turned him down initially (we were the only ones in the zone) as we were a bit too little for that. Then we asked if he wanted to join us to try and kill it. He did and we killed it without a problem.

Exp wasn't bad either, roughly 3 yellow in about 2 1/2 hours. Got a few drops we could use in a couple levels and even one of the Talisman of the Spiritseers that I looted off a corpse someone was letting rot unannounced. Glad I went and investigated before the final 90 seconds expired :-)
Rogue Solo?

Any chance of this guy being soloed by a 65 rogue?
RE: Rogue Solo?
# May 22 2005 at 7:46 AM Rating: Decent
While I am not familiar with all of the rogue skills and drawbacks for soloing, I could solo him unbuffed since 59 as a warrior burning my disciplines (mainly Furious & Mighty Strike). Of course I have greater AC and my best attacks aren't done from behind :-)

Anyone have the approx loc for this guy?
RE: Location
# May 22 2005 at 7:51 AM Rating: Decent
The best answer to this question is "in the water". He can spawn at any spot in the water but seems to be mostly held to the channel as opposed to open water. Any spot that can spawn a crusty can spawn him in it. I have seen him spawn all over the channel but only in spots where crusties are a possible spawn. Most time he is in one of the spawns near the Wayfarer's Camp but this is because those mobs there get killed more often than the others in the water as most people don't hunt the water. Which is a good thing because even if all the other normal camping spots are taken, the water is usually empty =)

I just saw him spawn at -1106,-1464. Normally A Reef Crustacean is there. There is another Crustacean spawn at -1210, -1387. Maybe both these are PSs for this guy.

Is it me or does Vimidon's face remind you of one of the Hydralisks from Starcraft?

True to their word, he now summons and he does hit for less. He is still fast, but doesn't hit in the mid to upper 100's.

Dropped for me :
Whittled Bone Ring
Spell: Crippling Claudication

and confirming from further kills:
Calloused Shell Helm
Glimmering Mind Sphere

Soloed Vimidon
# May 18 2004 at 11:17 AM Rating: Decent
I managed to solo Vimidon for the first time today, with self buffs only, no KEI, virtue/temp nor FoS/Fo7 (my preferred buffs). It took a lot of patience as well as about 200 arrows. Vimidon cannot be feared so I just ran him back and forth along the base of the cliff above the “Magus beach” shooting arrows, rooting him and dotting him. It took about 20 min to kill him (I needed to re-ensnare him once). This time he dropped the White Bone Ring. The previous 3 times I have killed him (all with help) he dropped the Calloused Shell Helm. I am still hoping for the Shell Inlaid Collar to fall.

Dropped Spell: Talisman of Epuration today, 58 Shm, poison/disease resist spell

This seems to spawn in random places in the stream. I killed him 3 times today all in a short period of time. First 2 times I got the 20mana aug and a research item. The 3rd time I got the ring. Each time he was in a different place in the stream. I imagine the fish are his placeholder and any of them can spawn him. Probably the easiest of the named in this zone, least in my opinion. It didn't resist my snares or root near as much as the others do.

Hardest part is getting him away from the steep cliffs. Seems like mobs in this zone just like to pop behind you when your on the cliffs.

I can say with certainty the reef crustacians are place holders. Maybe not all of them, but most of them are.
Min Level
# Apr 18 2004 at 10:21 AM Rating: Decent
Can bring the minimum level down.. Dark Blue to 51
got him
# Apr 08 2004 at 8:10 PM Rating: Decent
solo'd him with my 55 ranger (he was dark blue to me) seems to have maybe a little bit more, or possibly the same amount of hp as regular crustys. he's an animal, but he's immune to fear spells. snare and root holds just fine, so it was lucky i was packing lots of arrows. meleeing with him was outta the question; he hits hard and often, between 40 at the lowest and above 260 as a high. often two of those hits for 260-ish come together, making a mean round of combat.
dropped the calloused helm and a "words of energy"

oh, notably... this took a long time, and i certainly ran out of mana rootinng him and dotting him, and finally kited him around plugging arrows into him. got him to like 25% and a druid threw a couple nukes on while i kept plugging away to help me finish him off.

I disbelieve!
# Mar 24 2004 at 10:08 AM Rating: Decent
I do believe the Shell Inlaid Collar has just as much chance to drop from him as from any other mob in the zone. It's certainly not restricted to him. I'd bet he drops the Talisman of the Spiritseer for someone eventually.
Not sure on lvl

Anywhere there's a Reef Crustacean spawn. They're all underwater, mainly in the river. There's one right near the fallen pillar at the ghost ruins and one a bit closer to the camp, and several more as you progress through the river.

In all I'd guess that there are 10ish total spawn points, and at least 1 is WAY out in the water.
RE: loc?
# Mar 24 2004 at 10:03 AM Rating: Decent
The southern area of the zone, the sea, has many of them. Perhaps 10 or so mixed in with other mobs. Hard to say since they wander around and you can't see much.
I have yet to see him spawn there however. Seen him twice, both times in the river near the mouth opposite the magus. Under the bridge both times.
So far

I have dropped him 5x. Each time he is in the same spawn point. There are the 2 crustys at the river mouth, 1 almost directly under the restless soul ruins, and 1(his spawn point?) in between those 2 points. Every time I have killed him, he has been at that spawn point.

Edit: I make the post, and he pops in a different spot for kill 6!

Can a level 56 Mage solo this area and more importantly solo him?
Bard song as well
# Feb 24 2004 at 4:30 AM Rating: Decent
Killed him 2 times tonight. 1st kill dropped the Whittled Bone Ring and Song: Dreams of Ayonae. 2nd kill dropped Reef Crustacean Gland, and Glimmering Mind Sphere. First I have seen the song drop off him.
