Lvls 53+ can be in the zone, just not within Naggy Agro range... Pretty simple actually.
duff man, !oh yeah!

I am happy to say that i went on a raid and killed lord nagafen at lvl......oh yes, lvl 41. That sounds crazy but i was with about 35 lvl 60 people and i was able to yoink the Bladestopper
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 01 2001 at 6:48 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Those must've been some pretty incompitant lvl 60's you were with.
tactic we used
# Apr 23 2001 at 4:59 AM Rating: Decent
well to start with we had all the high lvls 53+ kill all the fire giants then we got all buffed up FR,MR,crap buffs etc.then the 53+clerics,druids,etc stayed in the corridor and everytime we ran low on HPs we ran out for a heal then back in again,we didnt bother with doing waves cause there was around 60 of us:)im lvl 46 and i got feared 3 times with a MR of around 100(which is kinda low for a raid).i didnt die either.

my observations
# Apr 16 2001 at 1:50 PM Rating: Good
I've been on 3 Naggy raids so far. Every one of them we kicked Naggy's sorry butt with about 40 people. Less than 10 deaths each time.

First off: My MR sucks and I have never been feared. My FR is quite good and the AoE still damages quite well. So if it is between FR and MR, go FR all the way. Knowing this I'd suggest using your resistant discipline instead of your fearless one.

I'm a SK. For fun I thought I'd try HTing Naggy at the very beginning of the fight. It resisted, but boy did it **** him/her off. I then debuffed with shadow vortex and shroud of pain. This was such an effective taunt(combined with the HT) that Naggy remained on me through the nuking of the casters. My cleric managed to keep me alive until naggy was at half health. I died very happy knowing that only one person had died and Naggy was half dead. On my next raid I am going to have 2 clerics target me, HT and debuff to taunt, and see if I can tank Naggy the entire fight.

At level 40 Warriors get a fearless discipline making you immune to fear spells, I myself am 43 and plan on joining some naggy raids in a few levels, has anyone used this fearless discipline and has it worked? Just curious.
Can 53+ people even FIGHT dragons now?
# Apr 05 2001 at 10:25 PM Rating: Decent
I keep hearing/reading that players level 53 and higher cannot participate in dragon raids now. What exactly happens? I've read that they are booted from the zone and also been told that the dragons get 'ubered up' if any 53+'s are in the zone with them. Which would suck for a raiding party of 52's and below if say, a level 60 just came in the zone and sat just to 'uber up' the dragon and ***** them all. Or is it if the dragon is ATTACKED by a 53+ person that this happens? If anyone can clarify this I'd appreicate it. I'm approaching level 53 and haven't been on a dragon raid yet and I want to go on one b4 my EQ days are over. Thanks!

Naggy isn't ubered when a lvl 53+ is in SolB. You would have to raid him when the dungeon is empty (hmmm Sol B empty ? rofl :)
If a 53+ hits or casts on Naggy, he is bannished of the dungeon = he's ported out of the dungeon
Taking him down
# Mar 08 2001 at 6:53 PM Rating: Excellent
He is not that hard with proper planing....
Ive lead 5 succseful naggy raids with 4 groups +

Want a key to victory? Bards! can I say more?

main group formats should look like this

first 3 groups try to set up like this
War lvl 52
tank 50
tank 50
Rog lvl 52

4 is casters

Wiz lvl 52

group 5 support

having them pop in and out of groups for resist cast

3 junk buffs to let him dispell them

then main buffs Fire Resist Magic Resist "full cleric buffs" DMF

along with your personal resist gear and a bard you should be over 200 resist for both

Pull him to the door and have all support againt the back wall ONCE a tank starts to get hit have him back down for heals it will take him almost his full health to just back away if he stays agroed on him

send in first 3 Tank Groups on the initial charge
wait about 30 second once they take out 20% of his health send in the nukage

I have set up these raids with under 1 hour prep time to have him drop in about 3 minutes

Everyone told me that i wouldn't be able to hit Naggy until level 47. But at 45, i was hitting him full damage most of the time. Maybe you guys weren't in Melee distance. But as long as you are 45 your g2g :)
RE: 45 Wizard vs. Naggy
# Mar 28 2001 at 1:29 AM Rating: Default
he has a lvl cap on him..if you hit him and your over 52 then you get ported to away from him...someone might have told you wrong or you heard wrong :)

Subject says it all. Don't know why I posted it, but I figured some people would be curious as to who is the "easier" dragon.
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 16 2001 at 1:01 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ok, seeing is how your lvl 37 I'm guessing you havent been on a dragon raid. So unless you have fought both of these dragons first hand, i doubt you know what your talking about, anyway you said it yourself, you dont know why you posted it.
RE: Hmm....
# Feb 22 2001 at 11:37 AM Rating: Good
No, the original poster is right. With all things being equal on the raid party side, Vox is tougher than Nagafen simply because she can complete heal. I've been on the winning and losing side for both dragon raids and I can say that it takes a higher concentration of higher level players who are wearing the appropriate resist gear. Unlike with nagafen, the level range can be a little wider (I did my first Nag raid at 41) and you can 'let slide' with needing the proper MR/FR gear. Nagafen raids can allow for sloppiness in organization, Vox raids cannot.
How many dragon scales???
# Feb 07 2001 at 1:36 PM Rating: Default
How many scales can drop off of naggy? and are they rare, or will they drop about everytime.?
magic resist
# Feb 02 2001 at 4:58 PM Rating: Default
i have magic resist of 157, and his fear spells still took effect on me.
RE: magic resist
# Feb 12 2001 at 11:49 AM Rating: Decent
32 posts
Well.. 157 is good for a Naggy or Vox raid. Not *great* but good. Normally you'll want a MR of 100 UNBUFFED and a FR of 100 UNBUFFED (and 100 Cold UNBUFFED for Vox) for the raid. And I forget off the top of my head what the Fire and Magic buffs do around the "dragon raid" levels, but I think around 60-80. So yeah, 157 you definatly can still be feared, but it's still a respectible number to have.

anyone here got any idea what's the spawn time on this big guy here?

Naggy is up at zone/server reset, and once killed respawns in 7 days.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 18 2001 at 3:59 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I had the pleasure of doing a naggy raid last night when the servers came up. I am a 46 cleric.
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 27 2001 at 2:32 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Well not exactly but I have friend who is currently a LVL 47 cleric and he USED to get screwed over all the time when he grouped with ppl. So what did he do? He soloed. What was that that I hear from thousands of other ppl, including other clerics? What!? Clerics can't solo?? That is total BS and I am an eye witness. Clerics are among the best soloers in the game. He uses a nice 2 Hand Blunt weapon with a nice proc and uses his spells the blast things. And whenever he does feel like group he actually wacks at things and gives it to the mobs good hitting for up to 86 points of damage! He does just as good and sometimes better then the tanks!!Don't be fooled though he does maintain his role to heal party members when needed. And he would be even more effective if he had a haste item, such as the Cloak of Flames. So getting turned down on rolling on an item like that is pure BS! And everyone saying **** like "Don't expect me to help you get your cleric only armour" The Cloak of Flames is not Melee only. A cleric can use it!

#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 07 2001 at 1:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I really dont see how you could have gone there and expected to get a CoF, you think the groups are gona let a greedy cleric who wants to sell the CoF just so he can get full Donal's armor? or let the brave young warrior who was dreaming of finally owning a CoF since lvl 1?
# Mar 03 2001 at 9:43 AM Rating: Decent
he doesnt want to sell it, he wants to use it!
# Feb 05 2001 at 9:29 AM Rating: Excellent
Just ask if a raid is need before greed before you join if you don't think it's fair. I've been on raids that are need before greed and ones that are full random. Just need to ask before you go if that's really important to you.
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 01 2001 at 6:03 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) So when you have to go out and kill mobs that will only be dropping items that YOU can use (ie. your cleric only armor, mobs that drops items for your epic quest), I certainly hope you don't expect ANY other class to be there fighting beside you! I mean, what's in it for THEM!?! Hope you have a great time killing things by yourself *snicker*.
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 14 2001 at 7:11 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) are you kidding me?
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 24 2001 at 10:39 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Excactly, if its not a item thats benifitial for a cleric to use (like the CoF) they shouldn't roll on it, you will NEVER find a raid which casters roll on a CoF....
# Apr 18 2001 at 5:50 PM Rating: Default
You people are morons. Listen to yourselves talking? "I ain't gonna help a cleric get his cleric only armor." You guys are morons. That's like a cleric saying I won't heal you, cause he doesn't want to taunt the guys off you by healing your sorry a$$ cause he can't take the damage. If the Cleric wants the CoF and can wear it he should get a roll for it too. To disclude him would be to say you don't want his services. So who's really being greedy? I would say the warrior who refuses to let him roll is the greedy one, and anyone who would refuse him the roll(Let me remind you your sorry a$$ wouldn't be alive without his heals) is a moron. Think about it long and hard before you insult this statement and you will see that it's very true.

WTF is wrong with you? Why is it you play a cleric? For the FUN?! ROFL!! *in the previous cleric's voice* So, when the Kunark only cleric armor drops, I want to roll on it because I could trade it for Cobalt. WTF? I can't believe you would say something like that. With that attitude, why should I help you with your epic quest? Nothin in it for me. ROFL ROFL ROFL! Wait, wait, don't play a necro either, just quit this game you self centered piece of trash cleric.

60ppl on riad
# Dec 10 2000 at 3:09 AM Rating: Default
We had a raid on nagy today (i think) i say i think because when ever we would attack some hg's 30ppl would go ld becuse of all the ppl in that one area. After a few ld fights to confirm this everyone lvl 45 and below had to leave. Me being lvl 42 i had to go. Kind of sucks, 4 hours of time wasted to see a few fg's. It was an interesting first dragon raid, or at least fg raid.

wow i had 40ppl in my raid we all died so fast no one could even blink i a 45 ranger lasted 1 min against him, he summond most of my friends and dumped them in the lava, that make CR a lot harder. U need a BIG team and a plan we tried to take him out of his lair so he could not summon us but he got stuck in the door so we had to rush him, we had 3 groups of tanks all die in less than 10mins

RE: ouch
# Feb 05 2001 at 9:34 AM Rating: Decent
45 is too low for a dragon raid. I'd say the minimum should be about 49 for tanks. Some casters can get away with lower, like enchanters for mana sieves and stuff like that. Naggy usually takes about 8 or 9 groups minimum. Vox needs about 10 to 12 to do it right.

I assume this is a rare drop?

I want one.. hehe, btw, anyone know how much haste it is?

The Cloak of Flames has a 36% haste effect on it
# Feb 12 2001 at 11:38 AM Rating: Default

Thus making it exactly *twice* the haste of the FBSS (which, for you math-retards, has an 18% haste =P)

# Jan 10 2003 at 11:12 AM Rating: Decent

FBSS is 21% haste.
sit down when you dont cast
# Oct 12 2000 at 5:52 AM Rating: Good
if you sit down when you dont cast, you will not be feared, BUT if you cast when you are being feared you will not be able to cast until you log or zone, not a good thing as a cleric :-)
