I dunno if they changed it from August 2006, but I killed her yesterday and she was back up today, no server reset. If anyone still wanted to farm her for anything, the M'Shas were up too after being killed yesterday

Edit: M'Shas appear to be on a 12ish hour timer. Iqthinxa hasn't show up for at least 3 day, unless someone else came in a popped her.

She and her 3 buddies all seemed to have a ton of HPs! Took us about 30 minutes. At the beginning the Cleric Mercs were comparing d*** sizes and ran OOM quickly so SHM had to heal. The Clerics eventually worked it out though. SHM had a hell of a time landing slow or anything on the adds but with some Malo landed everything on Iqthi.

86 War +CLR Merc, 86 SHM + Melee Merc, 81 Rog +CLR Merc

Don't recall what she dropped but it wasn't what we came for.
Loot wrong?

Cleared this event again yesterday. We got two scimitars, a chaos rune, an armor mold (forgot which type it was), and some backflagging pieces.

Maybe her loots vary? *shrugs*

I think it's a very rare alternative to the non-visible armor pieces. The M`Shas that almost always drop the armor molds, only drop speific pieces for each one. I seem to remember one of the pit mobs dropping a mold once (and many were very disappointed at the time, as I think it was Cyno, and many were after the neck and back). Hard to remember for sure though, it's been many years ago now.

Yeah, Zoo and Cyno can both drop any Msha dropping armor piece. But its far from very rare. I've killed both of these mobs 10+ times, and its like a 25% chance or better to see atleast one visible slot armor.

From first pull, this is what I got on my parser on the sucessful try, which was only parsing me, a ranger at about 27k hp, and 4600 ac self buffed + Temerity I.
Iqthinxa Karnkvi (first part) 390k
Rav Gernkkki 527k
Rav Karnkki 620k
trash mob 1 (add due to repop) 22k
Rav Marnkki 756k
trash mob 2 (add due to repop) 35k
Iqthinxa Karnkvi (second part) 1,512k
total damage I did: 3,862k

Average mob dps on me was about 230 for Iqthinxa. Her max hit on me was 1828, with max shielding. Each of the three adds did the same amount of dps, so the three Rav together are much worse than the named. Their max hit on me was each in the range of 1400 to 1500. I am sure the mobs had a bunch of regen, which probably accounts of the wide spread in the hp's for the three Ravs. The friend with me, a necro, reported the mob was resistant to most of his spells, so he could only use splurt, putrefaction and disease spells, and pets in addition. I was the main tank, and took about 850 k damage total during the fight. His cleric soaked up a bit of damage mainly due to trash mob repops, as did the necro. From first pull to all was over, this was almost 40 minutes, and I had buffs galore wear off. My DPS overall was in the 1500 region. I went through all my discs/aa spells except weapon shield, and Guardian of the Forest at least once. Most of the buttons repopped at least once. I finished with 20% mana having cast and recast chanter and beast in a bottle version XIII. Almost all of my spells cast were arc of arrows due to it being relatively mana efficent. I had to self heal from pots a couple of times.

Solo try #1, #2, with my necro try #1, #2, group try #1, and #2 were all failures mostly because of Rav DPS before finally a success. It didn't drop what I wanted, so now I get to go back and try again.

Edit: I was cruising though old posts. I didn't say what was up exactly with the adds. All three popped when Iqthinxa was at 75%, all were right on top of me at once. There was no need to pull them. That is why it may be harder than some have had in the past. Also I did this in her enclosed area, with the cleric outside the enclosure, next to the wall.

Iqthinxa hit me for a max of 1700 when I tanked her, her average around 800. Triple-hits pretty fast, but a cleric should be more than sufficient to keep up a COA-level tank. Was buffed to 3700ac/full shielding when was beating me up.

When she hits 75%, the three animals spawn in the middle of her room and she becomes unattackable, then calmly walks back to her spawn point. She resumes her attack once the animals are down.

Drops 2 Qvic armor pieces, plus one other item.

You have to kill the pets with her.
As God intended from the beginning. This event was bugged so you could bipass the pets in the past. This bug made the event far more trivial than it should have been.

Tried this today with a few guildes. Cleared to her, pulle her, got her to 50% and bam, all three adds poped on us. I have done this both ways, over the last year. But have never see the guards pop right on top of her when she hits 50%. So don't know if it is really fixed now or if it is rebugged?
Fairly Simple

Lvl 75 19k hp buffed monk + 75 12k hp / 10k mana sham 2 boxed this, didn't lose to reset, just pulled 3rd and 2nd dog together. If all 3 are damaged at the 15 mins then they do not reset.
# Oct 31 2006 at 10:41 AM Rating: Decent
had a problem today with him resetting twice. first time we got him to 75 then killed first animal and he reset before we went after 2nd. next time we killed first animal and had 2nd to 2% when he reset again. is this event timed?
# Oct 31 2006 at 4:45 PM Rating: Decent
It needs to be done the intended way: all animals together at once :)
# Dec 03 2006 at 4:12 PM Rating: Decent


Yes the event is timed, if you are too slow the event will reset.

Yes the best way is to pull the three animals and kill them one at a time.

If you have a good group with Anguish+ gear this event can be single-grouped.
DPS is key

Need a Monk or a rogue that are pretty good when doing this. Took this thing down 2 times yesterday with only 7 people. First time we did it it took us a long *** 22 minutes to kill. the second time tho it only took 10 cuz we had someone botting a rogue and a monk so she dropped really fast. if u pull her near ent its incredibly simple.

Sir,i must label you as a complete bullshi*ing ****** because 1 Iqthinxa Karnkvi spawns once every 3 days,so there is almost no way you could have killed it 2 times in 1 day UNLESS the server reset then maybe othewise no,2 unless the 7 people were CoA + geared people and 3 of them were rogues,it would have taken longer then 22 mins ok thanks
k just did this with 15 peeps
# Jan 04 2006 at 11:54 AM Rating: Decent
seemed to have around 1.200.000 hp
hits 4k instead of the 3k listed above

me and some friends threw together a goats group and after goats she seemed up so we called some reinforcements and we did her

pull her to zone kill to 75 she respawns on her spawnpoints with 3 friends single em all out they hit 2k then shes at 100% then kill her down to 0

this can easely be done with a good tank and 1 cleric so 1 groupable for sure
droppd hammer and 1hb for us GL

hits for 4k?.. it all depends on the warrior, our warrior sits @ about 18k hp / 3.1k ac / 30% shielding. It makes quite a difference.
Seemed easy to me

Did this last night with 8 people. I 2 boxed , other person 6 boxed. Group / outside 2 consisted of :::
Warrior: 16.2k hp buffed max aa (other person
Warrior: 15.3k hp buffed 889 aa (me
Cleric: 10.8k mana buffed 1103 aa (other person
Cleric: 9.1k mana buffed 259 aa (me
Rogue: 14.6k hp buffed 371 aa (other person
Bard: 16.1k hp buffed max aa (other person
Shaman: 8.9k mana buffed (other person
Wizard: 9.9k mana buffed (other person
Anyhow, to begin. We cleared out Ptav M'sha so it would be easier to pull this goat. We cleared out all the area mobs so we could pull Iqthinxa to the entrance. She doubled 3k. And was partially slowable by shaman with Malos - then Malosinia on it. She has 1,200,000 hp approximatly. Once we pulled, we Slowed immediatly. Warrior Took the mob off bard who pulled and did corner, like ussual form for M'sha. Clerics didnt do rotation just had to constant CH back to back. Once at 75% she despawns and respawns over where spawn point is. She split into 3 different 2k quadding unslowable mobs. Bard single pulled One at a time. These mobs seemed much much harder then the boss itself.. Tank Line War war bard rogue was switching anonymously. After each was dead, we repulled named. Reslowed, maloed ect. Btw he was at 100% again... At 50% he despawned again and had to cycle through the 3 PITA 2k quadderz. Once all 3 were dead we repulled named.. but we had the zone repop so Bard had to fade pull correctly.. but this zone has a problems with Warping after Fade so it made this a tad bit more difficult. We got named pulled in and again.. tanked him down from 100% slowed / maloed. With Clerics having 120 mana regen (with c6, clickees, bard song, sitting, mana regen, Aa mana regen ect) They were able to upkeep 50% mana. While tanking this Iqthinxa for the 3rd pull, she didnt despawn at 25% .. so we were able to DPS her dead. Clr was at 5% mana at the end because of lack healing and Constant Ancient: Hallow Light ussing. and New Spell from DoD spell mission lvl 70. I dont remember enrage going off . but im not totally sure. With mob slowed hes cake with our warrior :). At the end. Goat lady dropped 2 Belts, 1 Chaos Rune. 1 Alt access qvic thing.. Loot was given Cleric, (lvl 65 wiz that we logged in so loot didnt rot) and alt access was given to Cleric... Dont take it easy.. but this event is "not" easy at all.. depends on group.. it is still a raid mob.. There went any AOEs. just Uber dps mobs.

Iqthixa-Goat lady
-3 day respawn timer
-Splits at 75%, kill 3 mobs, repull > it will be at full health
-[Splits at 50%, kill 3 mobs, repull > it will be at full health] Now This one is tricky depending on if u wiped during the encounter there is a possible chance he can split more then once... now if so you will need to kill him at 50% if event bugs you may need to restart the whole thing. Originally he only splits 1 time. We found this 2nd split out when we wiped and took a 8 min break to rerezz / buff.
-3k double > tripple(double)
-does Single Target spell, Grasp of Muram its simply a gimp snare.
-1,200,000 hp approximatly
-30 person raid average, pending on gear / aa / skill .. it can be less.
-No rampage
-not sure on enrage
-Partially slowed with malos > Malosinia.
-Spawns rights past Stair building on your up and left. She spawns behind the walls.
3 spawned during fight mobs
-2k quad
-no loot
-approx 300k hp
-these spawn where u pulled iqthinxa from

The M'shas are on a 6 hour respawn. This mob shares the same respawn as Cynosure Kvanjji. But, yes, it is three days.

For a while this event was bugged on bristlebane, perhaps it was on your server when you tried and failed. We do this event with as few as 30 - 35 peeps. Usually drops the lame 2hb for twinks/apps though.

Well here it is 5 years later and boy how times change...

I am easily able to box this as an 83 Ranger with an 80 WIZ and 83 CLR. I have 3 merc healers as well (just for safety but they aren't really needed).
