Lord Soptyvr  


Uploaded July 24th, 2007

In the Gorge of King Xorbb: "Big nasty" - has some pretty heavy nukes and charms. Just like the other evil eyes in the maze, only tougher. Lord Soptyvr spawns on the altar in the middle of the other evil eye spawns. Note that minotaurs are KOS to him. (Information from: Greldon Silverhand, Cleric of Tarew Marr Server)

In the Valley of King Xorbb: Lord Soptyvr is encountered in the anniversary group mission "Evil Eye Operative" (see this quest entry for information).

Fairly easily, though he chomped me for a bit of damage before he went down. Didn't nuke, just Tashani'd my pet & I. Couple casts of Blaze took him down, but he only dropped the lens & some plats. O well.
so he pops

he is harder and loves to root which gets resisted or instantly wears about half the time @ level 30. has about 2X the HP of the other lords, most lords 2 nukes kill them, this one about 4 kills.

Made toast of my level 30 ranger today. I was having so much fun killing and looting eyes, too. Now I have to wait for an uber to come and kill Soptovyr before I can start killing eyes again. Anyone on Veeshan server that can do it, check the time/date stamp on this message because Soptovyr is up at the time I am writing this message, or just stop by if you're passing near and see if he's still up and kill him for me so I can go back to looting eyes, eh?
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

You dont have to wait to long, i think he's only up for a few hours at a time and then he depops. If he didnt i could have done that quest that his lens is for some time ago
Solo with 35 Druid

Having just solo'd the guy, here's my 2cp; First buff way up on garbage buffs (he will dispell them 4 at a time). So get 10 or so buffs (levitate, enduring breath, all resists, etc.), then put on magic resist, regen, and SOW (you will have these after he dispells you).

First attack, take his pet away to the zone and nuke it. The pet does not respawn. Med up. Then go back for The Big Guy. Root, Ensnare, DOT the heck out of him, run to a safe distance. Med up. Go back again. DOT, DOT, DOT. He will go down and you will have 30-40% health. Be careful, cause you will get Rooted, Charmed, and all other manner of Enchanter type spells thrown at you.

After all that, you get basically 4 plat and a prize you cannot use. WooHoo!
Lesson in fustration...

He just had my 39 Rogue for lunch. My poison (150DD) had no effect, backstab was abosorbed, my first 6-10 strikes were all absorbed. I think I got him down to 90% by the time I was down to 30%. Luckily I made it to the relative safety of Runnyeye.
hard as hell

Odd agro pattern

These evil eyes have a very odd agro pattern. Their agro range seems to be VERY small. A lesser lord did not agro at all until I actually started beating on him with my swords; despite conning 'ready to attack'. Once I engaged that eye, Lord Soptyvr jumped in to give him aid; instilling, tashaning me and such. Fortunately, once you are out of their range, they seem to forget all about you... even if you walk back to where you're looking at them, they will not agro until you engage again.

Well, that's my 2 cp :-) This adds a lot to the safety factor of attacking them; if you can get far enough away that they lose sight of you.
not hard at 43 bard
# Nov 25 2002 at 5:03 AM Rating: Decent
he took me less than 100hp, i'm fear kiting him... and that keep him from casting on me....
a lower bard with fear ae song, could kill him without much trouble
RE: not hard at 43 bard
# Jan 15 2003 at 5:29 AM Rating: Decent
Well, after reading your post and sitting in front of this bugger i decided to give it a try with my 35 bard.

I planned to get up my magic resistance by singing guardian with instrument, then starting fear and running up to the Lord, so that i'd be just within his reach when fear fired off, then switch over to weapons and then chain/fear/fufil him while meleeing. Talked about this plan with a hilevel ENC friend of mine and he said that might work with an ENC mob.
Fear held only about 1 second, then i got tashed and nuked. After i was down to half health (the lord still having 89% grrr....) i decided to run. This Lord must be able to read thoughts, because i couldn't even fire up selo's, so quickly had he feared me. I was headed into some rock formation and got stuck there. Luckily i went LD as my health was at 20%. When i repopped i practically sat on his lap in the centre of this circular wide area with 90% health and no XP loss. Naturally i ran as fast as i could and though he sent his pet (light blue) after me he himself didnt leave his place and i got to safety all good and well. After checking my log file i found out that Aylah had been safed just after the fight had started so i was lucky this time.

Though i am pretty sure that this guy can be soloed i post this warning:

I will come back for him when i wear my charisma gear. And maybe a higher level too ... :-)
Oh yeah, that root thing!

36 ranger here - killed him solo, but came within about 20hp of dying. He dispelled all my buffs (which is like being naked to a ranger!) charmed me, and beat the living **** out of me with nukes. I thought what the hell i'm gonna die, but i'm taking him with me. Then when he dropped, i thought: you know, i may live if i can outrun his pet, hmmm... high-tailed it to Runnyeye with his pet beating on me ***** zoned with 20 hp left! Yay! (In retrospect, I would have rooted the pet first, then beated on the Lord, but hindsight is 20/20) :)
easy to kill
# Jun 23 2002 at 12:42 PM Rating: Default
Hey was easy to kill. But i am a lvl 55 shammy, I was killing the Evil eyes for a PBB for my alt enchanter. I saw him pop and I rooted him, He got 1 spell off before pet was beating on him took my pet maybe 40seconds to take him out.

A shammy shall never turn evil or help the evil in Norrath !

# Aug 20 2002 at 1:00 AM Rating: Decent
Heh he is prolly easy to kill for 55. For the low 30s camping EEs, he often kills them! Oops! If anyone is (actually!) xping here, such as wizzies who can get some decent xp on the eyes so long as they don't get wasted, this guy will often trample the poor soloer.

If you want a higher level equivilant, try Mr. Tolajumpy[sic].
He is a bad dude

I was haveing trouble with the pop rate in the Gorge and had petitioned, I started killing as eye's poped and was doing well. Then the Lord Spawned. I started to beat on him and then a Tell came across as I was fighting. It was a GM responding ot my Petition. He showed up to try and help with the spawn as I was in battle. The next thing I know the GM is Laughing at me... I was Charmed... I was beating on the gm as he stood by me. It was interesting. The GM said I hit him a few times and Nuked him a few also. The next thing I know I was on a steap grade looking down with less than 1/2 my HP's All my buffs were gone, and I was DoTed with my own spell. To make a long story longer... He was an Even con, I did knock him down to 1/2 hp's and he Blinked befor I had controll of myself. I couldn't win.

I spent about 4 hours killing the e.e.'s on either side of the platform when He poped. he was easy. he was dark blue to me at 34. I only had 2 buffs on at the time Armor of Protection and valor. and only 80% of my mana. I ran halfway up ramp rooted him, then nuked till I was at 15% mana. he rooted me also but that did not last long as he debuffed me 3 buffs one of which was his root. 15% mana he was dead. i hit him with my hammer a few times and that was it. he cast two spells on me root and debuff. tho he did hit me a few times and he hit for around 40.
all in all he was easy. got my lens now on to Najena for the widowmistress hair!

woo woo!

Could a 40th lvl warrior take out the king and these other lords?

# May 02 2002 at 11:58 PM Rating: Decent
Well, I'm a 32 paladin, he conned dark blue to me and i took him out alone. I had to use LoH and only had one bar of health left afterwards, but I got him. So I'd say at 40 he'd be fairly easy if ya had MR buffs.

This guy is super fast on removing all your buffs, he casts strip enchantment in under a second and it removes about 3 per cast. he was dark blue to me at lvl 35 and the other eyes helped him buy charming and nukeing me. all i got was 5sp and the lens
6.5 Hour Spawn
# Mar 09 2002 at 7:45 AM Rating: Default
My level 35 Paladin has been camping these Evil Eyes for about a week, and not for the PBB's either, although they are a nice addition to the gems I am seeking. I am actually there for the pearls and miscelaneous gems to help a druid in the guild finish her epic.
He is best handled solo, so if you are charmed you just march back and forth for about a minuet.

Note: do not let the eyes on the side sit, as having him attack right after battling one of them gives him a chance to spawn his annoying pet. Not that the pet hits hard, but once this guy strips you all the way down to your magic resist buff his pet is more than a back scratcher like the other two.

I have been told that he is a seven hour spawn, and I guess that is close enough, but I will set my clock by his 6.5 hour spawn rate.
BTW he conned dark blue to me, and I have seen him send many a pc on a cr because they did not have magic resists.

I got him fairly easily with my 35 druid. Nothing fancy, I just pretended I was a wizard and nuked, nuked, nuked. He did manage to strip about half my buffs, but other than that, he didn't do much harm.
Camping Evil Eyes for fun and Profit
# Jan 30 2002 at 11:47 AM Rating: Decent
OK so some enchanters know this, but if the Evil Eyes have a pet up and you kill the Eye, cast Mem Blur on the pet and he just despawns. These guys are great experience for 25+ if you can get a partner; probably level 20+ with a group. You need to try to kill the eyes before they bring up a pet though, so even if your mana is low when they pop they are easier to kill than with their pet. As casters, the pet will interrupt you that's why I usually will kill an eye or attack it at 50% mana if you have enough fire power or melee power to kill it. Make sure you and your partner has Endure Magic if anyone can cast that in the group. Also for Enchanters, give your group or partner Charisma buff, I'm not 100% sure, but I've heard it helps resist charm. The only time I was charmed was when my charisma buff wore off. May just be coincidence. If your friend gets charmed, usually a level nuke or root/stun (color flux)combination can help break the charm. I'd suggest keeping one loaded with a group or partner.

Also You can sit just a bit between the eye and the end of the ramp (close to the ramp) and the roaming minos and muddites won't usually attack you.

I usually go with a Wizzie, we both bind behind the rock to the right when you enter the gorge. I empty all my backpacks and when they were full, port to Gfay, gate back to the minos when done. Sell and gate back, rinse repeat. You can easily make 300pp in a day, not counting the PBB's. Those sell easily for 100pp each on The Tribunal Server. Not sure what they'd sell somewhere else. Optic nerves are for Warrior bracer quest I think and those sell to vendor for a couple pp. Some people looking for them for quest items will give you up to 10pp each for them. BTW, I've camped this spot for days on end and never saw the King. Lord Soptyvyr is tough, VERY tough, and spawns about once every 8 hours or so on the platform between the two on the ground.

What makes him spawn?
# Dec 30 2001 at 5:03 PM Rating: Decent

I (42 SK) was camping for the King and didn't know that the King would spawn only if this Lord did. So I took him down quite easily... didn't notice him being any harder than the other two lords. He casted about the same spells as the other lords and dropped the len.

I have read all the threads and haven't found out a solid way to make him spawn...?

I was camping the eyes last night, trying to score some pbb for my Necro, with my 32 Lvl SK. I had a great night. I was so laden with goodies that my wife logged her bard on and ran down to help me carry the stuff out. She is only 26 so I tilde her to stay in the main path till I had whacked the latest spawn. We were in the middle of transfering the loot when the eyes spawned again. I took them out and hurriedly finished the transfer. I knew the next spawn was not for at least another 4 minutes so I sat and started to med up. All of a sudden she yells at me "There's another one and it's on me!" I pop up and say no problem I'll whack it. Well I start hitting it and casually look up at my health bar and see that I have only 1 and a half health left. What the hell he hit me with? I'm gonna die! I conned it at that point and it was blue. I think Oh crap what is this thing? My wife wants to come back to help but I tell her to stay back. No sense in both of us dying if it charms me. I descide if I'm going I'm going out with a bang so I close and harm touch it. I then followed up with a series of Lifedraws and bashing the heck out of him. Lucky me all but one of my spells hit. When he went down I was at 2 and a quarter bulbs health, no manna, and a spent Harm touch. This is by no means an indication of an easy fight. He had me down to one quarter of a bulb when my Lifedraws started hitting. I picked up the lens, 3 plat, a jade ring, and an amber off him. Whew.. I looked at my poor beat up SK and descied I had tempted fate enough for one night and logged him.
