This guy is somewhat tough. He is highly magic resistant, and hits for around 210 max. He can also blind.

I tried him with a 65cleric and a 44beastlord. Tried to have the Beastlord slow and got resisted at least 3 times. Tried to land Mark of Righteous with the cleric, and it was resisted 3 times as well.

Nope, I solo him at 65 with my necro and its pretty easy but then i have the 1k pet heal. A 59 Necro with pet and a cleric could likely duo him but it wont be easy.

at 65 with all my spells its easy to solo the reaver and him
wiped out

My god have they made him harder? We went in today after a jade reaver for my druid epic, walked through the zone leaving a trail of corpses like we owned the place. I mean really, we made it all the way to the keep without a med. break. Any way we make it through the door and there is lord Ghiosk. So we harmony the first room and pull him, no adds. He destroyed us we never even got him below 75%. First out of mana then out of health. I was last to die, he summoned me.
Druid 65
Pally 53
Necro with pet 61
Druid 51 (me)
I'm not playin he kicked or ***** like it was nothin. He most have an incredable regen rate or sumthin

You probably pulled Lord Rak'Ashiir, not Lord Ghiosk. Ghiosk spawns from the corpse of the Black Reaver in the 1st room. Lord Rak'Ashiir is just floating around...he a nasty SOB, but easy to take out too using mage pets.

This guy is easy, done with 65 pally and 39 sham as healer. CAKE!
spawn point?
# Sep 28 2003 at 10:19 PM Rating: Decent
is ghiosk popped exclusively from reavers or can he pop elsewhere? like inside the castle or on the bridge?

Myself 61Mage and a friend 60Druid went to CoM to see how far we could get as far as Neh'Ashiir. After clearing mobs up to the castle harmny pulled from front and worked back to Black Reaver against far wall. We were fighting Reaver on bridge/walkway to castle when we had to evac due to adds. On return Lord Ghiosk was in spot where Black Reaver had been killed. My assumption is he will spawn where ever u kill his placeholder and do so almost instantly.

Hope this helped a little

Also, we duo'd him using 61 Air pet with items as a tank and I just kept Primal Remedy up( Pet HoT) and Druid handled CH's ..got no aggro and he went down easy if not a little slowly..apprx 1.5-2 minutes

takin' him down

We beat him today with one group:
50 shaman
65 shaman
46 monk (me)
61 ranger
61 warrior (not entirely sure of lvls but these are about what we had)
he spawned out of reaver spawn in first room of castle, three reavers then ghiosk popped, and that was the end, we took him down with NO problem. he dropped three books (not sure of names) and these leggings which may have been part of the revamp because they are not listed here:

Ghosly Leggings of Terror
magic, lore, no drop
8str 5sta 5dex 5wis 2agi 40hp 30mana 5svmagic
monk, druid, beastlord (look black like gnome skin)

nice legs and they are mine now. hope this helps.

Killed him twice last night with me, a 56 Beastlord and a 55 Cleric. First time he dropped legs, Yay me! Second time he dropped Throneblade Yay cleric's merchant!

Not too tough, with lull strategically placed on a couple of mist golems in the first castle room I was able to single pull. Tough part was our DPS wasn't up to snuff and started getting repops on bridge before Ghiosk went down. We figured out a way to get around this problem on accident though.

Loot Changed
# Aug 27 2003 at 2:34 PM Rating: Decent
The Mace now drops off of Golems, not sure of the Throneblade. Ghiosk now has a different loot table; what we had drop were some no-drop pants for Monk, Druid, and BL -- had to let them rot, as no one could use.

Throneblade I looted from this guy just moments ago shame he didn't have the pants... tough to solo to keep looking for pants
# Aug 26 2003 at 9:10 PM Rating: Decent
can a 55 wizard, 54 shaman, 64 mage, and 54 warrior take him on?

# Aug 09 2003 at 10:56 AM Rating: Decent
What would be the recommended force to take Ghiosk? One well balanced group or a raid of 2-3 groups. The group I have readily access to is a:
52 Shammy (me)
52 Druid
43 Warrior
51 Warrior
62 Cleric
62 Druid

No enchanter though. Think we would have a chance at getting my books?
RE: Recommended Force
# Aug 26 2003 at 6:50 AM Rating: Decent
This Guy is soloable bye a 62 shammy also seen him soloed by a similar ish lvl mage
RE: Recommended Force
# Aug 13 2003 at 10:34 PM Rating: Decent
I just took em directly after 2 reavers with a 50war (me) a 65 chanter, a 51 cleric, a 52 ranger, and a 60 rogue. That worked for us rather easily. Shouldn't be TOO bad without a chanter.

Thanks for the info we will be going after him sometime this week then.
Not undead
# Jun 06 2003 at 11:16 PM Rating: Good
Last night i tried to kill this guy with my 56 Necromancer. I charmed a high level undead wraith and siced it on him and then used my undead slow. I got the message this only works on undead. I look at this guy again and he looks undead my slow should work. I try again and same message. After about 30 sec my pet is down to 40% and Lord G is down to 70%. I tell the cleric to heal my pet. well he heals him too 40% and then does not heal again. I see that my pet is down to 10% and the Lord G is only down to 40% i say to them zone. Well they zone and i get summoned 7 times trying to gate and finally i am blinded and died.

The whole point is a 56 Necro with Thrall of bones can solo him if he were actually undead. With him not being one a shammy who can chain cast heals and a necro can easily take this guy down.

BTW i was only summoned after pet was killed even after i doted it with ebolt, splurt, BoD, Corr, and darkness

Sorry, this applies ONLY to those on the Bristlebane server.

Tarrien (a 55 or so Shaman) Ninja-looted the epic quest items off a fallen Lord Ghiosk.

He was asked repeatedly to /tell the raid leader for a /random roll to determine who got to loot.

He sent no /tell, waited till the corpse went "public" (even with raid window looting the last two minutes or so are "open looting") and looted all the items. Includeing Mace of Shadowed Soul. Which is SK only.

When confronted with his misdeed (he apparently didn't know that even when PUBLIC the corpse still gives item loot messages to the raid) he said (quote- direct from my log, which is always on)
[Mon Apr 07 20:27:54 2003] Tarrien tells the raid, 'I dont need to be hear i can gate out if u like'

And then promptly beat feet.

[Mon Apr 07 20:29:09 2003] Tarrien tells the raid, 'Bye dont need this stupidity'
[Mon Apr 07 20:29:12 2003] Tarrien has left the group.
[Mon Apr 07 20:29:12 2003] Tarrien has left the raid.
[Mon Apr 07 20:29:43 2003] You have added tarrien to your IGNORE list.
[Mon Apr 07 20:29:49 2003] Tarrien fades away.

He was /petition'ed for ninja-looting (a bannable offense) and the petition was noted, and GMs are investigating.

If you reside on Bristlebane DO NOT accept this freak into your group.

This is a perfect example of why a corspe should be 'locked' by someone on the raid till loot is decided.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 10 2003 at 11:18 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) So a Shaman "ninja-looted" a shaman epic quest item????? Aside from how absurd that first part sounds, why is someone telling this guy to be telling the raid leader how to do their job anyway? Unless the shaman in question was already packing an epic then I'd be surprised if a GM is going to ban, much less do anything about this one. I mean we aren't talking a CoF or anything here as far as the other loot is concerned...a MoSS sells for next to nothing anymore.
# Apr 21 2003 at 1:09 PM Rating: Decent
Purely the principle of it.

Still, would you want this guy to be a part of your raid? I know I wouldn't regardless of shaman epic drop and he's a shaman. What about the guy who the raid was possibly made for and this guy decides it was for him? NOT in my raid!

How can you trust him to not take your epic drop?
Tough Guy

Myself (51 Shaman) and a few others were stomping Black Reavers when Lord Ghiosk popped .... well we weren't expecting this one so we ended up having to evac. Reavers are one thing but this cat is a pain. He has this nasty habit of floating out over the water, blinding, and then summoning our tank. Once down in the water it becomes impossible to heal said tank. At any rate just to let anyone know i casted Maliose 5 times and all were resisted then tried Togor's Inscets and Incapacitate 2 times each just on a whim and all were resisted too .... did not say he was immune or anything like that .... just really really high resists. Also tried envenomed bolt and Plague once apiece and both were resisted lol .... after that I stuck to patch healing and attempting to cure the blindness that he seemed to chain cast. Anyways hope this information helps someone.

Killed Ghiosk this morning 3Boxin a 65 Troll Warrior, 55 Shorty Drood, 54 Shorty Cleric. (40 Rogue opened door with 200 Lockpick)

BRs spawned 3 total. He still blinds/summons.

Added up hit points from log and it totaled 25,035. War used Windblade, so adding damage wasn't TOO bad.

Found myself summoned by this guy during a guild raid - reason being I'm a Druid, was OOM, and no one warned me about sitting to med while Ghiosk was present. Instant 500+ dmg, but i managed to survive, only to run into 2 fog golems who finished me off (

Bah, can you say raid wipe? well yeah, i have heard he doesnt aggro unless you attack him, and his spawn wasnt quite planned by our raid leader. After his aggro an AE basically destroyed all included our MT, 62 ogre warrior, i was quickly summoned after my attempts to perform a root, resisted, and some back up heals, managed to escape evac was on last second when i got interrupted summoned and wrecked by this Lord G character. Along with the rest of the raid.

G blinds like the Black Reavers do. He summons as well. Tank with 132MR didn't resist at all - least that's what it felt like...

Several people are confused on this thread.... Ghiosk is NOT the shammy epic mob that casts and AOE spell, he is (as far as I know) a full melee mob, and he is spawned by killing reavers. Rak'askiir is the AE mob, that is usually killed with mage fire pets (high resistance to the AE fire spell). check out www.eqshaman.com for a complete walkthrough of the shammy epic quest, also has tactics.
Can you MQ the 3 books?

No, they cannot be MQ'd as they are part of the shaman epic quest. Turning them in would get you nowhere because you have to have sufficient TrueSpirit faction in order to take the next step in the epic.

RE: Can you MQ the 3 books?
# Dec 03 2002 at 1:46 PM Rating: Excellent
Besides, what's the point of trying to MQ three items that all drop from the same MoB? You're not going to get the first book without the other two, so trying to MQ it would mean killing Ghosk twice and getting two sets of books. Pointless.

I think MQing is getting out of hand...

Not completely pointless. In the last guild I was in we didn't have any shammie on one raid and the guild leader looted the books. Next raid we had two who needed the books, so they each looted a few and MQ'd the others off fromt he guild leader. Granted, a rare and unusual circumstance, but I was glad I thought of it to save one of them some trouble. :)

Both Lords are part of the shaman epic quest. You have to first gather up the reports in City of Mist and give them to the Sentinal Spirit in EJ. Then, you kill Lord Ghiosk and loot the three books he drops and return those to another Sentinal Spirit. Then, a few more steps and you return to kill Lord Rak Ashir.

Myself a 53rd level warrior, 53rd Cleric, 52nd Enchanter took Lord Ghiosk down, but took 10 min. Enchanter tried to slow him 7 times with no success, and tried to dot him 4 times with no success. Cleric tried an undead dot, and was informed that 'this spell only works on undead'. So he was bugged today, or he is NOT undead. A 60th Druid passing by did get a epic dot and a bracer dot to stick once each, other attempts of the bracer fail to land on Lord Ghiosk. Cleric healed my at least 7 times with Complete Heal. He did con even to me with my 53rd level, 4000 HP Warrior. I did notice any AoE damage and neither did anyone else. Dropped 3 books and the Mace. Good luck with him.

does Lord ghiosk drop the books or does lord rak ashir drop the books for the shaman epic?
RE: Books
# Jun 26 2002 at 4:28 PM Rating: Decent
Ghiosk drops the three books for the shaman epic, I believe every time he is killed. Have killed him 3 times now and books every time.

Neh Ashir is the other epic mob and she is AFTER the trip to The Hole.
1 fire pet can do it

1 lvl 49 pet was sufficient to bring it down with heals. Had 2 pets but one got bugged when Ghiosk fell in the water. Left the tanks & rest of raid group to sit behind. Boring, but easy and I got my books...
