Raid Encounter

Uploaded July 24th, 2007

In Permafrost (Level 90 raid): For event and loot information, see this quest entry.

In Permafrost (Ancient Heroes raid): See this quest entry for information.

In Permafrost (regular zone): Lady Vox, along with Lord Nagafen and Phinigel Autropos, is one of EverQuest's original three raid bosses.

Those who would challenge the ice dragon would be advised to increase their Magic and Cold resists to counter her Fear and Ice AEs, respectively. She is also a cleric, and, as such, possesses the ability to cast Complete Heal on herself.

Vox is a Cleric; has 32,000 hps; summons; and hits for a max 205.

Killed her yesterday with a 52 Rogue + A2 Healer merc, a 78 Chanter + A5 Tank merc and a 78 Druid + A5 Tank merc, all boxed on 2 computers.

My guild had a warrior that needed to get a Block of Permafrost for the Warrior epic 1.0, but at level 61 that Warrior got banish when he attacked a giant near enough to the cave that would agro Lady Vox.
I found my "masterkey" char on my free-access account, which was a 53 rogue and decided to make a try on soloing Lady Vox, since another here wrote they did it like 10 years ago and I thought gear have inflated somewhat.
My Rogue is not on par in gear. Its mostly Defiant gear, but ranging from Rough up to a some piece in Intricate, but I thought with a A2 Healer merc I would have a little benefit compared to back then.
So I went to OT and went inside outpost and got a bind after which I started to lay out a new graveyard by consistantly insulting the guards there. They are a quite thin-skinned gang. :)
OT was chosen because a its easy access to there from PoK when rezzes should occur later and with 9 corpses there I was down to level 52 with 90% XP to 53.

I then moved the Rogue to Everfrost and met up with the Chanter and Druid at the adventure camp where I bound the Rogue again, after which we ran to Permafrost and made our way through the hallways outside Lady Vox's cave.
At last giant before the cave my Rogue dinged 53, which presented quite a problem. Only mobs that could really be used to beat him down again was inside the cave and I was not much for leaving a corpse in there and not being able to get it, so I had to run back to Everfrost and be beat down by the giants at the entrance there. Lesson to remember is to either go well below the level 53 point or avoid getting XP on the way in.

My initial idea was to buff Rogue as much as possible and then let him handle it himself and maybe cast a single heal from the Druid or a haste from the Chanter in the fight after which they would probably get banish, but hopefully the buff/heal would land before that.

I had no way of single pulling, so I got Lady Vox together 5 or 6 giants and pulled them all to the hallways.
No the paln changed to trying to kill a few adds and then rezz and continue untill Lady Vox was alone.
Chanters pet and his Tank Merc quickly took down one of the giants, but then they both went for Lady Vox due to her AE.
I tried to change target for the pet, but the Chanter was instantly banished.
Popping outside the zone I made a quick dash towards to hallways again in hope of getting a few of the adds before they returned to the cave, but to my surprise the fight was still on when I arrived.
I looked at the Rogues Healer merc and she was completely OOM, but discovered that the Druids Healer merc had handled the healing with getting the Druid banish. The Druid had just been standing there.
I then took a look at the Chanters pet and Tank merc and saw them both attacking Lady Vox, but none of them did any damage. I then tried to redirect pet to another target and instantly got banished again, so it seems it is the pet handling that triggers the banishment.
Another run to hallways under which I had to switch focus to the other EQ sessions a few times, because the Lady Vox's fear spell actually started to work now. I guess my resist buffs had worn off or been dispelled and even the 78 Druid was feared quite a few times and so was the 78 Chanter when he returned.
Well, since the Chanter and Druid could not really help with the killing it was all up to the Rogue and boy is a Rogue a bad choice for a raid tank. None of the special abilities that a Rogue has could be used and on top of that I had to deal with the fear AE from Lady Vox combined with a A2 merc that has low confidence and got scared due to the 4 adds and therefore started to run around like a headless chicken pulling the mobs with her. As a Healer she was completely useless!
After this I sort of got control of the situation and started to know how to deal with the fears and the scared merc, so I managed to get rid of the adds and started on Lady Vox.
Lady Vox was not going to die fast here. I got her maybe 3-4% down pr minute and at 15% my Druids merc looked like he would be OOM before she would die, so I decided to try and switch merc on the Chanter, which have 2 merc slots, so a healer was ready.
I ran back a bit with the Chanter and logged out, then disbanded the Chanter from the group, so when logging back in he would not immediately caught in the groups fight and switch away from fast regen mode. It worked. I could change the merc to a Healer and return to the group and get an invite to finish off Lady Vox.
Now it was just a matter of cleaning up in OT with rezzes and a cleric epic 1.0 is a nice item here.

Wondering if Nagafen was up I sent my Druid there and found him up, so I reflected a bit over the fight and decided that the A2 Healer merc the Rogue used was pointless and a tank or DPS would be way better, so I made the switch and got set up.
Again deleveled my Rogue in OT and got to Lavastorm, where I got a bound in the adventure camp to the North.
Now we cleared the way to Nagafen avoiding any XP to the Rogue and that went smoothly.
Setup camp just outside Nagafens lair and buffed up with both 78 toons having their Healer merc up.
Rogue pulled Nagafen and 4-5 added included a level 70 Fabled Magus Rokyl.
Fight lasted less than 5 secs and the Rogue and his merc was killed and my level 78 toons were banished.
I was better prepared this time and I knew what to expect, but failed anyway.
I could not really put my finger on what was wrong, but I had doubts about the Tank merc, so just to try it out I switched back the headless chicken A2 Healer and went back again and set up camp.
When ready I went in with the Rogue and pulled them all to the hallway outside where my 78 toons waited and this time everything went like planned. Rogue even melee the level 70 Fabled down with little issue and Nagafen's fear AE never landed once on any of my toons.
Still a long fight though.

Not sure why a Tank merc failed and I am not sure if a higher tier of Healer merc would help either. It could be the headless chicken act actually was part of the "solution" to method.
I would recommend a better tank though. Plate armor and a few extra abilities could cut down on the length.
At the same time I have say that you have to keep your nerves with the 78 Healer Merc, since they tend to first land the heals when tanking toon is below 20% and with 4400HP as max HP on the Rogue that is feeling pretty darn close. This late healing might be due to the toons being level 78, which makes their healing spells more effective, so the mercs try to optimize. If that is the case, then higher level merc could be too late with the heals.
I would recommend A5 merc over J2 merc whenever possible here. The adds could be too much for the less confident J2 mercs, especially with Nagafen and a level 70 fabled.

Vox pet solo

After I cleared the cave of all adds with my high level necro...(/pet attack, not entering cave, using eye to see)

My 52 epic mage solo'd her with no problem. I did not use a merc. Only spell my mage used was the 52 pet heal which heals for around 700 focused. Was 25% mana after the fight, could have been more but I fizzled the spell around 15 total times. Pet had self buffs and temp (merc was only used to buff before the fight). Pet had full summoned gear/weapons from a higher level mage and was also pet focused. Can also /pet attack and go afk about 7 minutes, the merc will keep the pet healed until vox dies.

Vox down on Drinal

Took down the whole cave in the early hours of 11.23.2014 using 52 ranger, tank merc, 51 cleric and cleric merc.

Started with the priest, then the ice giants, terrors and finally Vox. I fully expected to kill one or two giants, wipe, rez and go in for another try, rinse and repeat until only Vox was left. Instead I wiped once, then used that strategy to clear all the smaller stuff. At the time they were all down and only Vox was left, the cleric merc was OOM but tank and ranger were both at full health. Turned on Vox and started hammering while my cleric took up healing. Fireshard Ring was a big help in the fight.

She used up all of her mana on healing giants, so while they took longer than they should have, she never healed herself and never ran.

Dropped a few coins, Block of Permafrost, McVaxius` Horn of War, Torn Frost covered book and 2x White Dragon Scales.

Merc solo aint easy, have lvled up most powerful classes <lvl 52> and best tries were monk (didnt try bst) and SK with best try. Soooon i will get her few more % and change of tactic,
need to kill priest of nagafen first (easy with HT at 60ish % i think, then u die prolly kill Vox directly or try add and add tact.

Do you need a merc to solo this mob, I tried with my monk and got her down to 15% at lvl 51 with full flawed defiant gear. She complete healed herself.
# Jul 14 2009 at 2:29 AM Rating: Decent
My wife and I just took down vox last night (5/13/09). 52 Monk / Shaman w/ Healer + tank mercs. She didn't complete heal herself. We pulled the entire room, and took down the giants one at a time while they were all beating on the tank merc. Shaman used mana mainly for recasting haste on monk and tank merc. Over 270 cold resist and 265+ magic resist didn't help too much. Was still getting hit with cold blast for 488 dmg.

All in all it wasn't too tough but we walked away with Crystalline Spear (junk), Pouch (excellent for my monk), Horn of War (sold it on Baz for 4k last night), and White Dragon Hide. The book for pally epic rotted after I posted it in general that it was in there. Noone likes pally epics anymore I guess :)

I can say that without both mercs it would have been tough to do it the way we did, though picking off the giants one at a time would have been a hell of a lot easier heh.

Duo'd her last week with 52 monk, 52 warrior, and 2 cleric mercs... was a pain since niether of us had a haste item at the time so dps was pretty slow, but im curious she doesn't heal herself anymore? or did we just get lucky?

She has a finite mana pool. If you take a while to kill her, like if you're unhasted hehe, she'll spend her mana casting Judgement and smaller cleric spells. When she gets low and tries to Complete Heal, she's got no mana.

I just downed her 52 beastlord, i thought it was a pain. Died couple times just trying to clear giants out of Lair, she kept aggroing. I used warrior Merc once giants cleared and she was cake! She only dispelled me once so no big deal on buff losses. ave hit 140s. velium gear with taafs, and defiant geared I have no aa btw. I'd say it wouldn't be possible without merc but never know. Least for a Bst.

I just returned to E after about 7 years, and i'm amazed of the stories of soloing Vox and Naggy. I was curious which classes would be able to accomplish this? So far i've read stories about mages and clerics... are there any other classes that would be, or have been successful? As a fan of the old world mobs, soling one of those 2 dragons sounds enticing, any advice and info is greatly appreciated.

Umm i have seen a Shadowknight solo it and a Cleric. I believe they used potions to do this though
# Feb 19 2009 at 8:04 PM Rating: Decent
I have never heard of any class other than a cleric solo vox(solo being defined as 1 character in zone).besides when potions had no reuse timer before they nerfed it.I have seen the video of the mage doing it but there were other toons in the video and weather they had any impact on the fight can not be proved at least in my mind.I have a exremely twinked monk who can knock about 25% off her but with no outside healing it's just a matter of time until she outlasts him.I can out damage her dps wise but she wins the battle of hit points every time.Both my cleric and monk which I 2 boc are over 5 years old and were made expressly to kill dragons (6 naggy raids for my mains Bard epic drop convinced me I needed to take matters into my own hands was 2 for 6 and no scales)Any way I have a ranger parked in permafrost on prexus and am always looking for company on my kills if anyone wants to do some killin!

just to let you know, as a magician 52 (100+AA), some weeks ago i soloed (with merc) her several times, vox is cake by far compared to naggy. (even if for both adds are a pain in the ...)
i killed her several times, something like 4times with merco, 3 times with a cleric friend, and 1 time with a paladin friend. do it with a friend shorten drastically the fight.
don't forget your insta-clickies in order to make this fight easy

PS: magician wasnt sooo ubber, but it was stuffed with ALL the best things my 70 druid could loot or buy. it took me almost a month to stuff him, but i killed vox and naggy so many times that i took money back (cloak of flame is selling for 50KPP on karana, i am selling my fourth one =)p and epic pieces still have value ) and 100% weight reduc bags on them 2 are nice =)

SEPT 20th 2008 Prexus server with advice from blueadept I soloed Vox! With my 52 Cleric Bactine.The fight was long but had 21% mana at end.
Logged on my ranger who is parked in perm to see if she was up when i noticed a few toons in the zone the only one not anon was a 52 SK I asked him if i could help with the kill but he said as soon as his HT was up they would drop vox and I was to late.So I waited a few minutes and notices they were no longer in the zone so i decided to run my cleric there.Bactine has nice armor and a good hammer from ssra a righteousness.I also have the clicky greaves of vengeful fury that make a hammer pet,and a aon for a clicky that works from inventory.Although he has 152 aas I don't think they help as much as his gear.
Well the fight went pretty smoothly with me healing at about 45% when the first guys showed up and trained about 6 elite gobbies and that one annoying giant who pops at the door on me when I had vox at about 50%.I was taking a pretty good beating so i decided to cast upheaval a few times and betwen that and the spike pot I had taken it killed them pretty fast Thank God.Non the less i was shouting explatives at the guys for training me ( I was fighting on the ramps).She dropped her usual spear and wrist guard and 2 books which I announced in general for a wanting Pally.
Hurray for me

On Sept 4th 2008 at about 11:50pm I engaged Vox. 13 minutes later, I successfully Soloed her.

I believe am the second (that I know of) cleric to solo vox. I have a HUGE fraps of it (first time using fraps, have 4 4gig files and 1 1.8 gig file). If I figure out how to shrink it, I will put it on youtube and post the link.

Irving Deathwather's Magelo

I changed my surname after the kill to Voxkiller.

Forgot to say that all my gear is bazaar or at least groupable gear at 52. No PoP God kills.

This was my second attempt at her. First time I got her to 8%. Debuffs were my problem. I kept a closer eye on my buffs this time and re-arranged the order of them.

Fairly simple. As you can see, I have all defiant gear. I farmed augs from stuff I could kill either solo or grouped.

As for buffs, I got a shrunken gobbie earring (I equip it so I dont have to keep switching) and I have geerlok flotation device (which I keep recharging). That is until I can find something else that is instant click. I am on my 8th coldain ring, but havent completed it. Need to find some people to help do it.

For buffs, I usually have 7 semi-crap buffs (in case I am casting CH and she debuffs me). My line up is usually Grim Aura, Levitation, resist poison, resist disease, resist fire, resist cold, resist magic. Then my normal spells, AoP, BoF, Virtue, Kei, Haste, skinspikes, Agis of Bathizoid (from chardoks regal band of bathizoid). Sometimes I get lucky and get a couple spells that are MGBed in Guild hall.

I cast Word of the Devine on myself and run in. Hit auto attack, cast steadfast servant and infusion. I dont hit for much and I do not think the procs on my weapon actually hits her, but between the damage shield and WotD, it kills her in about 10 minutes. You just have to make sure that you do not let all your buffs be dispelled, CH yourself around 50% and keep WotD on yourself.

The first time I did it, I used staunch recovery, but the two times afterward I did not. In fact, I had 1.8k mana left the second time and had 900 mana the second time. She messed up my ch and feared me when it was just about to land. Ended up having to use remedy on myself. Chewed up a lot of mana.

I killed her again today (right before writing this). Kind of a boring fight actually since all you really do is keep the buffs up and CH.

Just soloed her again. Got a lot easier this time. Still had 1.8k mana left and didnt use staunch recovery. Still hasn't dropped any of the rarer stuff for me yet. 1 horn, 1 hammer, Dragon Bone Bracelet, and a rune of impetus this time.

What spell can a 51 Wizzy use against her was on a raid recently and used Enticement of Flame and Conflagration both spells was resisted every time. So was thinking maybe Rend (magic based spell) Any wizards out there have any idea?

Both Naggy and Vox are belly casters, so you have to be directly underneath them in order for any spells to land. If you are not directly underneath them, you will get a resisted message.

Nope, not true at all.

Attempted to get to her after reading this. Have 1.0 and I got the message "I will not fight you" and was banished.

Worth a try though eh?

Officially soloed as a level 52 cleric.

I forgot to /log and parse it, but I know the following are true:

Max hit 205, not 400
Fear easily resistable at 200+ MR, there are streaks but it seems to be a 5% margin; shows same margin at 500 MR.
About same success rate on the dispel AE, and will dispel even on a partial resist. I'd go with first 2 slots instaclickies, keep them cycled constantly, never got anything else dispelled.

Here's my cleric's magelo:
Easily lived off of CH's, had one chain where I had to spam Remedy's; used jester and servant, jester was useless but the servant helped as much as a 180 hot can help. Mace, ds, and WotD used for dps, total magic damage accounted for probably 30k of the fight where melee and 2 charges of Supernova covered the remainder. Fight took about 12 minutes total, dropped 2 RBB's 2 horns 1 bracelet 1 book and some Words whose uses extent was to hold the corpse while I took screenshots for half an hour.

The monk jumped in but he didn't do any damage, you can see because his offhand swung and then he got banished out (he was 70 I think; I shouted at him to gtfo up off my kool-aid when he zoned back in); aside from that, ghosting looks a little different. Ask anyone on EGN. =P

Hey man Gratz!! I thought after along time trying and about 30 Vox kills under my belt it was impossible to have enough dps to solo Vox with a cleric.You should really be commended on the fact that your 52 cleric is keyed to every zone in the POP expansion killed emperor seru ,was able to loot gear from most of the big boss mobs in all the zones,and still have time to camp in goru'kar mesa for a 25 hp aug.Lets not forget the ring of destruction and the drops from cazic thule and Bertoxulus.Oh yeah Terris Thule and Bristlebane too.

Again Gratz to you bro GOOD JOB!

Maxing out a level 52
# Aug 21 2007 at 12:58 PM Rating: Decent
I realize this place is good for looking for items but you cant search by level or HP or a combination of both. Searching this site is fairly difficult if you do not know the exact name of the item.

Anyone know a good resource to search for equipment and augs that are usable by level 52?

I am trying to make a character maxed out at level 52 (i do not want to level and AA him and then delevel) I want to get the best possible equipment purchased and droped that has full stats at level 52.

Also i would like to know a good resource to look for augs that work for level 52 characters.

Anyone got any ideas?
