Breaking Ikeana's room

Broke this room up. Not easy but did it myself 4box combo all 88. Warrior Enchanter Cleric Wiz + merc tank and cleric.

1) Positioned Warrior in door to pull bone golem.
2) Stuck enchanter into corner of room near quest mob and end of the ramp leading up to the room. You can then see the adds to target and Calm them. I calmed 2 on quest guys side and two on other side I could see. Be quick casting.
3) Pulled bone golem and only got 2 adds. killed them and door mob respawned. Killed all 4.
4) Moved into room and ran over to turn in for all 4, healing merc tank and mezzing with chanter while I finished turn in and hails. Not very clean but doable without a "super" group.

The initial hail is not a large problem. I tried eye of zoom, and stalking probe to get the target, and then hail. They both work, and you will see that Ikaena is in a corner near the ramp. Perhaps the easiest way to hail is to get fairly tight to the corner, and type /target ikaena. I found you should not be really close as you will aggro the room, and you do have to say "destroy" before you can leave the initial hail.

However, I have yet to work out the method to give the Golem bones to him. I tried using wolf form, and looking in form the corner, but you cannot give through the wall. So I may try a mob run, and then turn in with my other toons. A full invis method still leaves the problem of agroing the room before you can "give". A nearby druid ("through the wall") with exodus waiting may help.
my method...

I hit WS on Ranger and collected mobs then auto-ran away. Went in on quest tune and had plenty of time for hails/turn in.

I just hailed this guy, i was on my pretty pally pony (but checked verdant hedgerow mount will work). I walked up to the outside wall nearest this guy and looked through, I could see him so I just targeted him (left klik) nad hailed him through the wall. Got my Update.

Hope this may help someone

OK, then there was option 4 which worked fine.

Person with DA gathers em all in the opposite corner of the room from Ikaena.
Enchanter runs in behind him and hits the mob with Hypnotic Stare (will mez 6 things)
Keep em all locked down until everyone is done, then succor.
Nearly impossible

Getting to this guy is damned near impossible for normal people without DA, dual invis, feign death or AE translocate. He's in the near right corner of the inner room of the mausoleum with half a dozen or so bone golems or bonecrafters. Any random member of this crowd will see invis. Ecchoe (druid) and me (paladin) can cast dual invis and run free most places, but any one target in this room seeing through the normal invis gets you everything inside and outside the room all at once. In addition, the respawn timer in this zone is FAST. She and I together with our enchanter bot can only kill 3 or 4 things before what we killed starts to repop. So as I see it, these are the options:

1. Have a wizard cast AE translocate. Someone runs with DA on in and trains it all away while the rest of the group goes in for the updates then takes the TL.

2. Get 2 or 3 groups together to mow the area flat then take your 2 minutes to get the updates.

3. (Haven't been able to see if he will leave the room...) Train Ikaena out of the building and see if you can talk to him that way.

Any other thoughts?
