Zordakalicus has an AE fear and fire-based attack for 500 points of damage, both fairly easy to resist.

Buffed up with magic and fire resists and turned on WALK. Better to be feared at walk pace.
Fight was basically trivial, took about a minute. Two of the five got feared, both with MR around 300. The other three had MR over 400 and were never feared. Did not have to cast a heal, altho I did cast Spirit of the Wood because, well what the heck, it was available. But nobody ever fell below 90% including the pets. The decision was never in doubt.

Hope this helps anyone hoping to do this fight for their cleric.
Dropped 3 Blazing Vambraces and the Impure Head. I would like to add that Blazing Vambraces are a useful drop because, when equipped, you can give your target a DS (which is unusual, as most items are self-buffing only).
Load up on all the junk buffs you can if you're doing this with minimal manpower. I think I had six on my toons, all of which were gone and then some by the end of the fight.
Agree with others, the Overking was much tougher, not only to kill outright but to pull by himself. Ragefire isn't a gimme, but if you take care of the Overking -- or get an MQ of the scroll -- you're over the hump.
It may not sound like a big deal to get a cleric 1.0 done at this stage of EQ's life, but it was a longtime goal of mine. :)
he's not too difficult for a 2-group raid of lvl 50s, just keep those resists UP.
he dropped two breastplates, the bracers, a Rune of the Astral, and the quest item. for sure, the toughest part is the Chardok raid.
75 Cleric, Maelin Starpyre
Cloak of Flame's
Impure Heart (of course)
Loc (3000, -3200) for Warder Cecilia.
She'll spawn Zordak's human form after you hand her the Assembled Pearlescent Shard. When the human form dies, Zordakilicus (dragon form) will spawn.

My stratedgy was: get under him, cast MoB, and use clicky time pants for MoTR. I casted the level 69 ward spell, had my summoned hammer out and meleed with Yaulp on.
When he ran, was when it got tough, i had to use my nukes to nuke him down, while planning ahead to where he would be when the nuke went off. Eventually he dropped, and dropped the BP, Bracer, and Helm.. No sleeves :-(
I know this isn't a great achievement, but you can solo it if you don't have your epic at level 70 for some odd reason ;-)
Two AoE's: DD&Dispell and fear.
Melees at a bit over 300 per hit.
Belly caster. (If memory serves)
Keep in mind he was meant to be a challenge when the game was much more alive, equipment was much less powerful, maximum level was 60, and there were no such thing as AA's. This isn't just important for history.. helps you understand now.
His melee is alright, but not great since they didn't want him killing tanks instantly. His AoE's are main source of his influence and damage, allowing the fight to be something everyone is involved with, and not just something most people watched. He summons, since he was never meant to be solo'd. He's a belly caster, if I remember correctly. Since the spells are meant to allow for usage of then-high-end resistances, they're relatively easy to resist today.
To beat this guy, you'll need resistances for all those present. Junk buff if you're a bit short on them. (Just get GoDruzzil and PoSeasons in PoKnowledge, from Druids and Chanters respectively. Bards are great if in party) Someone will have to be able to tank him. This isn't a hard job.. just, you'll need a healer if DPS isn't high or the tank isn't an elite-type tank. Finally, you'll need some DPS. He doesn't seem to have too much HP.
He is soloable. Just make sure you meet the three requirements: resistances, melee tanking, DPS. He will summon you, so if you're a caster, I'd bring along a tank friend. If you're not 70 with a good number of AA's and some decent gear, I'd consider a smaller group.
A poster below said a group of about 20 55's would've been able to do it.
(This post has been mostly a summation of lower posts and personal experience. His melee DPS, his ability to summon, and the ability of classes to solo him are all barrowed; the idea of this post was to save scrolling.)
When the dragon spawned he debuffed us so we duod him without clarity ( i did have 3 c potions and if you back up out of his ae range you can med some with them) and without any buffs on the pally. Basically he's a pretty easy kill if you have a couple decent toons.
...It turns out hes a pushover, Chardok King was tougher than this dude. A level 70 ROUGE Soloed this idiot, along with a level 55 Necro and level 59 shaman and me...
...all he managed to do spell wise was fear me once, other than that we Pwnd him
