In era stats - Tanked by Anguish Geared Warrior.

4,400,000 HP
2,605 Max Hit on tank
776 DPS to Tank

If you are setup to have your tank react to the emotes for directional AE's instead of the raid, this is just a tank and spank with a potential blind at the end. AE's can hit up to 7k (Tail Sweep) but even if you react terribly the whole time, it's not too much to completely heal through in era. Just adds unnecessary risk.

Sheen of Platinum Scales

I believe this is what Rikkukin casts to become spell-reflective, as I was unable to find a "Frozen Aura" referenced in the spell database.

Can be one grouped now, mix of demi/anguish geared folks. Two clerics, one warrior, one sk, one ranger and one shammy. 65 minutes roughly from start to end.

Wrong drop
# Sep 27 2006 at 6:42 PM Rating: Decent
I can say out of 36+ kills Rikki does NOT drop the Entrancing Silk Veil. That is a Kessadona drop.

Basic strat for an easy fight:

Only the MA needs to move Rikki around as he/she sees fit.

Rikkukin pulls his right arm back, preparing to cut a swathe through his opponents with his razor sharp claws.
Rikkukin claws at those on his right flank.
(right attack)

Rikkukin pulls his left arm back, preparing to cut a swathe through his opponents with his razor sharp claws.
Rikkukin claws at those on his left flank.
(left attack)

Rikkukin twirls his tail, preparing to sweat away those foolish enough to take up position behind him.
Rikkukin swats at those behind him with his tail.
(rear attack)

Rikkukin rears backs and fills his lungs, preparing to exhale a cone of ice.
Rikkukin exhales a cone of deadly ice.
(front attack)

Rikkukin twists his body so that the ambient light starts to reflect from his silvery scales.

Rikkukin's skin seal over with a caustic sheet of malleable ice. The protection will soon make him impervious to melee and magical attacks.
Rikkukin (Frozen Aura) focuses inwardly and heals his wounds through sheer force of will.
(Frozen Aura - Rikkukin regens and cannot be harmed by melee or spells)

As long as the MA keeps the head towards him on left/right/front attacks the rest of the raid will be ok. On tail sweeps the MA flips Rikki so that the head is on the same side as the rest of the raid force. Good chance that if MA doesn't do this, a lot of peeps will die. The "ambient light" line is a blind. The whole raid force (minus the MA) must face away from Rikki to avoid behind blind. Have 2 people assigned to cure blindness on MA and MGB heals are helpful as well.

Hehe we have downed rikky with 19 people I think in the past but our guild is mostly DoD geared at best at the time. Probably a lot tougher then if we were CoA geared but still pretty fun.
Need Exact Emotes

Can someone please post the EXACT emotes he does just before he sets off his directional AOE ?

I would like to create audio trigers to work with them. I'll record *move left* *move right* Move to front* *move to back* wave files... and set them to the appropriate audio trigger.

I'll also setup one for *LOOK AWAY* for the emote of his blind.

But without having the exact emote text... does me no good... Can anyone parse their log file if they encountered him and post it please......

Is there an emote that goes off before his blind AE is cast?
RE: Emote
# Mar 02 2006 at 6:03 AM Rating: Decent
If you're trying to make an audio trigger, "Rikkukin twists his body" works for us. I can't remember the exact emote though.

If I'm right, he also has these 2 spells :

Multiple ppl were going blind at once though, so single with recast 30 doesn't sound correct
I dunno, but I do know lots of ppl were blind

And one or both of the following :
No clue what the difference is, and if they just did it to give it to him twice to get around the recast, why have that recast? I dunno

Anyone have problems positioning ??? ,,,, no place realy to corner, and he was moving all over the place as if shadowstepping.

There is a small "U" shaped "canyon in the rock wall at about location 6250,1475. Our guild's MT drags Rikki there and it's a simple matter of the MT shifting sides of the canyon to turn Rikki's attacks away from all the DPS who are facing in. Casters and healers stay back a bit and face away from the dragon. As long as the MT is on his game he can run from side to side and turn the left/right claw attacks to the opposite side of the DPS group. Frontal and Tail attacks rarely hit anyone other than MT/ST. DPS group only needs to face away during blind.

Yes, we have had problems finding a place to position him as of yet.

There is a place to position him. He can be walled so that clerics can heal from out of LOS. Course, I haven't tested my theory and I cannot give away a guild strat. We'll see later if I am right or not. Don't give up, it's there, just keep looking. =)

There is no spot that is out of LoS. We left a cleric and shaman bot at the zone in thinking we could drag for battle rezzes. They got wasted. So no spot in the zone can save you from the AE. Just got to pay attention.

Don't need to corner him, just pay attention. We killed him with 36 tonight, and only 4 deaths.

Positioned him right in the middle and just watched the emotes.

Oh yeah, forgot to add, he dropped THREE eyes. Nothing else. The melees didn't seem all that happy.

what raidforce u need for this one?
# Apr 04 2005 at 5:47 PM Rating: Excellent
This guy is not hard. His aoe is about 3k dmg, 750 per tick, dont bother trying to resist(goes off about every minute). Hits for around 3k quad . Unslowable I beleive. At around 60 percent he becomes frozen aura for around 30 seconds and heals and reflects spells and takes less dmg. At around 30% he starts to do a AOE blind that you have to face away to avoid. During the entire fight he also is doing directional emotes. Frontal, right, left, and behind. Besides the main tank if u get hit by the left/right/behind aoes u will take around 7k dmg, not fun. You have around 10 seconds to get out of the way of those aoe's. Position clerics under his stomach to avoid. Regen is very big on this guy, around 6k per tick, and hp is also rather large. Overall very easy. Drops 3 loots.

Now, how about people stop posting worthless freggin posts about mobs, sheeze.

He starts with blind closer to 50%. Putting the clerics under him is now nerfed.

Well, he seems to hit for about 2900 melee. Has at least 2 spells, one a spell sheild that reflects spells back at the caster and a big AoE ice spell Crystal Chill Fog

How hard does this guy hit?? what hp tank and what lvl of gear?? How many in Raid ect. Ty
RE: strat
# May 05 2005 at 6:48 AM Rating: Decent
hits 2500+, though I only tanked him after all the warriors died for a very short time. If your raid can follow his emotes and move within that short time frame, you dont need much heals other than to the tanks.
