He still banishes, Vox does as well. Just confirmed this on Maelin with my 80 wizard.
Duo'd
# Jul 13 2008 at 4:32 PM Rating: Decent
I duo'ed this last night with a level 52 monk and a half-naked level 52 cleric. Used infusion AA for resists and goblin earring to keep buffs up. I had all buffs at end of fight. Was very simple fight, I felt like I could have solo'd her if I had one more mend. I resisted all fears except one, and it only lasted about 3 seconds. Most of the loot rotted.

Monk has 4.6k HPs and 1316 AC unbuffed.
Downed!

We took good ole' naggy down last night. 52 Warrior (7k HP Buffed, 1.4k AC) 52 Cleric (4kHP Buffed, 5k mana) 52 Bard friend, and 52 monk friend. She Dispells so make sure you junk buff up before you run in there. Fight took a bout 2 minutes. Cleric didnt go past 70% mana. Also she runs at 20% or so.

My wife and I plan to take down naggy but were not sure if were ready, We each 2box I box a lvl 52 war with close to 5.5k hp Unbuffed, and a 52 ranger with a few aa's each, my wife boxes a cleric with 4k mana and a 52 bst with all his slows and each char has a decent MR and FR Would we be able to take Naggy? Or would a Better Slow be needed? than a level 52 bst? 30% slow if im not mistaken, would we need a much better slow?

# Dec 07 2007 at 2:52 PM Rating: Decent
You should be able to take Naggy no problem .Drag him to a corner and park your cleric out of view so he/she won't get feared or aoe'd.I would concentrate on keeping warrior alive and have regen pots on ranger and Bst,running around corner to regen as needed.Only use complete heal and don't waste mana on anyone but warrior.
Warrior would really need infusion of spirit vet AA to keep from being feared and a clicky is a must(just got a AON works awsome ).
P.S. dwerium jewelry the bomb until they nerf it.
Maxing a Level 52
# Aug 21 2007 at 12:56 PM Rating: Decent
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.

I realize this place is good for that 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 got any ideas?
Maxing a Level 52
# Sep 30 2007 at 6:21 AM Rating: Decent
I used the advanced search option on alla to find all the augs I wanted just put lvl 52 for your required lvl then try 55 to get those recommended for 55 like the blackfeather raiders bauble.It will list a bunch of stuf you can't get like recommended 70 quest stuff your to low to get quest for butyou can narrow the field quite a bit.It does require a paid subscription to allah though.




Hope that helps it's the only method i know of

I know that a magician can solo Nagafen and Vox, but what Necro's? It seems like they would be able to. Any info would be great.

I been 2 boxing Naggy for some time now I am a 52 cleric that I de-leveled from 55 with over 100 aa's and I Box my 52 zerker for about 10 kills and have since killed him with my 52 SK for about 3 kills. I do Both Naggy and vox who is way easier. Im usually at about 50 manay by the end of the fight. In all my kills I have only gotten 2 cloak of flames and one burnt book. I have about 10 frost coverd books almost on every alt on my 2 accounts. If you use your head and have alot of vet abilities hes cake. BTW they did increase the stregth of his fear and aoe about 5 patches ago they stick more now. PS damage shield is key and a good clicky.

I will solo him one day!!! Clerics rule!

The Sleeper
# Jan 17 2007 at 9:35 AM Rating: Decent
I just did a Naggy raid on The Sleeper, pre-patch (Jan 17/07) with 2 groups +2 and no cleric or enc. No one died. Our two guilds (we raid together often) have communication worked out very well and we have our technique down. Yes, it is possible to nuke him and flux him if you're within melee range. (One of our wizards prefer to cast from underneath, or about under the stomach.) He started nuking at 70% and never pulled agro. Questions (no flames) can be sent to Braetak on The Sleeper.

I've learned that in order to take this guy out with 5 people you have to have a group that is disciplined and knows what to do. We did alright on first attempt though, got him to 30% before MT died. Going to try again..

Well after regrouping and finding some buffs, we took down Naggy with no problems. We had MT tanking him at the door, and the 3 clerics in our raid stayed in the hallway behind the corner to avoid the AE's. SK MT again was at the door with Naggy and had Ranger and Monk beating on him from behind. SK and 2 clerics were in one group and other cleric in group with the SK, Monk and Ranger. This was our second try.

47 Cleric
51 Cleric
51 Cleric
52 Shadow Knight
52 Ranger
51 Monk

We all had fire resist buffs on, Virtue, BSS, some Ranger atk buffs, AC/DS buffs, and most of us had KEI or clarity potion.

Was pretty simple to heal, cleric #1 healed MT until 50m then switch off with other cleric #2 in group. Cleric #1 meds until cleric #2 is to 50m, then #1 takes up healing again. Didn't need to switch of more than once.

He dropped
Blight, Hammer of the Scourge
Orb of Tishan
Prayers of Life
Red Dragon Scales
Torn, burnt book

Book went to Monk's Paladin main for epic. Was a really fun fight.. VOX YOU'RE NEXT!

I Wonder....Would It Be Possible On A Naggy/Vox Raid To Have The Raid Engage Them And When They Build Sufficent Aggro have A Necro DoT one... And Then After or IF banished they run back and lifeburn and totally destroy naggy? is it even possible?

he's a belly caster, so right underneath him for spells and even then its pretty hard to land anything, and his max hit is about 255.

I haven't ever tried myself, but I've asked some other shamans that did and the answer was "just about impossible." I didn't find one who claimed to have successfully landed a slow.

I've heard that the Kunark dragons are very similar, and one of them (I forget whether it's Sev or Tal, though Talendor makes a lot more sense) is a carbon copy of Naggy without the banish. I HAVE tangled with the Kunark dragons a lot, and I don't even bother slowing them. At 70 with malos and balance of discord, giving me a -115 resist check as well as my huge level advantage, I rarely ever landed a slow on Kunark dragons while spamming it for a few minutes. So if the Kunark dragons really are as similar as they say... don't count on landing anything slows or anything else magic based without a massive negative resist check.

Naggy and vox Solo
# Jun 03 2006 at 3:07 PM Rating: Decent
i posted a reply earlier answering the questions u asked but i forgot to mention that my characters name is Elemmanttel on Erollisi Marr, also as far as the booting rules go u only get banished once Naggy or Vox see u or u get on their aggro list, i have seen high lvls walk into both naggy and vox's room without getting banished. also for a high lvl player to heal someone fighting naggy or vox u will get banished as soon as the heal lands there is no designated area where u get booted its naggy and vox that do it. also in my opinion Vox is easier as she is a cleric and tries to cast more than she melee's so as long as u resist her spells she seems to be an easier fight.

the only way they can walk into the room without getting banished is by cheating.

The banish only triggers if Naggy or Vox is up, but the banish range for naggy is right at the door you open to his lair, and vox is right at the moving stone the moment it closes.

can a lvl 70 druid heal a lvl 52 or lower from outside the little lair thing or is the range of the liar to large? or could the dragon be pulled to the healer. basicly is there any way around the booting?

healing someone would still boot you.
But, there is something I've been meaning to test, but haven't yet.

I haven't beena ble to confirm Nagafen or Vox themselves do the banishing. You don't have to be on their agro to get banished. There is a trigger somewhere else in the room that does the actual booting. Of course, if you get in nagafen's agro, this trigger still assists and boots.

The challenge, would be to pull Naggy or Vox out, and somewhere else into the dungeon, out of range of this trigger.

For naggy, the trigger catches you the moment you enter the door from the giant area. I was able to pet pull the giants out of naggy's room as long as I didnt step one foot past that. (naggy was too far for pet to grab) .
Vox, the trigger goes off on the sliding rock, happens when the rock door closes.

Actually,
Naggy amd Vox are the ones who boot you. If you stand on the top of the stairs in the prep room, you can see Naggy at any level. If you don't move, eventually Naggy will see you and banish you. This is how I know it isn't "trap" in the room because I was there one day and was waiting for some guildies to shroud down. I didn't move at all but all of the sudden I was banished. I'm sure it has to do with an aggro ring around Naggy and it's a pretty damn big ring.

When Vox was down I was able to run through the room be un-banished, if you will. I still want to test this, I plan to clear soldungb then have a lvl 52 or below pull naggy to the prep room and see what happens when I aggro. Will post results!

Prayers of Life is probably right, since they're the only heal "potion" that doesn't have a recast time. However Prayers have only 5 charges and only heal around 750 per cast. The video doesn't show any bags opening to grab a new PoL when the old one runs out of charges.

I'd like to see a log so that I could be sure, but to me, it looks like there was someone healing him with small heals (maybe to make it look like they were potion heals).

I personally don't believe this is real on an actual server, I would buy it though if it was on a Private server where you can twink with beyond level equipment and. is this also a wizard or a monk? becouse she's kicking like a Monk and I could be wrong but isn't that Wizard epic in her hand?

It has been possible on live servers for a while.
The staff couple be a couple different ones, I think it's a mnk/bst weapon from pofire?

Naggy is such old content that even twinked ac way outclasses his attack, as well as current saves available for his fire .

Solo'ed Nagafen on Emarr server on 5-11-06, as a 52 Mage. Dropped Cloak of Flames, heirophants crook x2, orb of tishan, blight, hammer of scourge. Was hell of a fight ended with 3% mana and pet with 80% health. ran at 13%.

Could you provide some more information on how you soloed him?

Did you chain epic pet, heal pet, nuke? Did you have to heal yourself at all? What buffs did you have on? How long did it take you? Did you have any outside help during the fight?

I'm always very skeptical about anyone who says they soloed naggy, especially a caster class, since naggy's DPS is quite high and even higher when he's wearing the CoF. My 5k/1350 unbuffed warrior would probably last around 30 seconds with no heals, so I can't imagine a mage with around half that would last long...

Or maybe you have a log to set me straight? :)

I have mage epic, and with KEI and tribute i have 4100 mana, i send in pet and sit back and play pet cleric, when ure buff gets dispelled have a clicky on first and second slot, like i have bracer of hidden and lev rings, that way i dont lose buffs and epic pet hits for 81 dmg and has 4k hp unbuffed, No i did not have any outside help, i do have people come in to whatch tho but they do not help. fight takes about 10-15 minits depending on what Naggy or vox does, i have KEI and Virt and resist buffs and any self buffs, i keep heal potions on me and one prayer of life and a mod rod, im trying to record me soloing him but every time i do it the capture card cuts off so i have like to 30%, i have also soloed vox and have a vid that starts when shes at 70% and i kill her even when she heals back from 40% to 70%. if u want to see those my AIM is The12Fonz21 ill send u them, and if u want real proof log on Erollisi Marr and ill show u.

I see people claiming a level 52 shaman can solo Nagafen.... I am a level 52 shaman with every slot filled with high end gear on FV server. How do you go about solo'ing nagafen as a shaman? he has guards which will add correct? how does a solo shaman handle that?

Only 1 person has claimed that his shaman solos Naggy, and he refused to provide any evidence of it.

Shaman DPS at 52 is not nearly good enough to kill Naggy solo. A high end shaman could probably tank Naggy with a cleric to help, but it would be a long fight, since shaman melee DPS sucks at all levels and spells would constantly be interrupted.

Until someone shows me a log of a shaman soloing Naggy (or even below 50%), I'll stick by my statements above.
