If your fortunate enough to have a Druid partner that can SOE you and your pet this is cakewalk. I followed the very detailed info and got my epic piece from the wraith following the wonderful info. YOU CAN GO AROUND SECOND BUILDING WITH SOE EASY. I camped the mob till he spawned. SOLO IS SO EASY
Charm Tips
# Dec 25 2004 at 4:59 PM Rating: Decent
People have posted some very good guides to getting there, and I found those guides VERY helpful. One thing I had to do with trial and error, though, was work out a charming strategy.

Lately, I've fallen deeply in love with charm solo-ing. The basics are as follows: Find a mob, paci around it, tash it, and then cast Color Slant as it comes at you. Color Slant is just long enough to stun a mob for the entire cast of Boltran's Agacerie, which I've found to be a *very* dependable charm. It almost always lasts the whole duration, provided the mob is tashed.

Whenever the mob breaks charm, simply cast Color Slant and recharm. It will be a sitting duck. Since CS is a PBAE, it will also hit the mob you were attacking, but I always keep that mob rooted just in case. Another helpful thing is to always, always keep your pet targetted during battles. That way, you don't have to mess around with the nearest mob key when it breaks charm.

Anyway, now to specific information about CoM.

What to Charm: Do not charm undead mobs. This is unfortunate, because they appear to be the strongest mobs in the zone, but they have very high MR. They are not good pets at all, even tashed, because they break charm so fast. I knew this would happen because they resist my slows so much, so when I first tried soloing, I went for one of the berserker madmen, or whatever their names are. The human, living mobs.

This did not work out, because these mobs are extremely weak. Undeads made short work of them. Goos would probably have worked fine, but you need to charm a mob as soon as you enter the zone, for reasons outlined in the next section. The perfect pets are those lovely mist golems. The best part? There is one there as soon as you enter the zone. It's very convenient. The other problem with the madmen was that they did not respond to stuns, while the golems were perfectly fine to sit still during recharms.

When to Charm: There are two times when it is a good idea to charm. I find it, personally, to be more convenient to charm as soon as you zone in. As I mentioned, there is a golem sitting right at entrance for you to grab. But most people, myself included except in this case, are lazy. Therefore, you can just invis up to the first tower. Inside the tower, there should be a golem up with a bunch of undeads. Paci the undeads and take the golem. If there isn't one, go back and get it from that platform area... it's worth it, they're such perfect pets.

From there, follow the banner strategy. You can mess around with paci when you're running down the catwalks, but I got fed up with paci wearing off so fast and just slaughtered my way through. A blend of paci, mez, root, and killing made it easy to get through. Also, Rune is very important... do not attempt to solo this part of your epic unless you are at least 61 and have Arcane Rune.

One other note: on the third hut, WoJ pops outside it, on the platform around it. The thing is, though, his PH seems to be inside. So what I did was got on my horse and poked my head through the door... the skele inside, the roamer, will soon get close enough to the door to see you. He will aggro you and come through the door, where you can kill him. I killed him twice before WoJ spawned. It was a very easy, fast camp. (watch the duration on your lev, though, and keep it up all the time- I died once because it dropped at the most unfortunate time...)

Good luck!

EASY TO GET UP THERE
# Oct 25 2004 at 4:09 PM Rating: Decent
OK, I did this while two boxin a highelf cleric and a gnome chanter, not that race is an issue w/ chanter.
As most of you have read in the forums, you can get to the second level (bypass the reaver room) by jumping off of a banner while looking up ..

Don't spend your time trying to jump from banner to ledge. Instead get on the banner and then jump to the roof of the pagota. From there levitate to the roof of the room next to you and from there to the invisble bridge. It is a cake walk.

Then needlessly slaughter everything on your way to the second locked door. Both my cleric and Chanter only have run 3. What you do is jump on the white step, then jump to the top of the DOORthen jump to the top of the DOORbehind you. From there you can levitate around w/ no fear of not making it what soever. I did it in Orge illusion but High elf works fine too. Then you are right there .. get jaxion to pop and be done w/ CoM

Enjoy peoples

Lev around second platform
# Oct 19 2004 at 11:03 AM Rating: Decent
Just wanted to let you guys know that I was able to levitate around the second platform. I have swift journey 1 as my runspeed modifier. I also had illusion ogre on and well...of course lev.

A little tip...when you are at the locked door of platform 2 right on the ledge there is a little block that goes up about half a character height higher than the rest of the ledge...stand on that when you start your run around platform.

Hope this helps

Here's What I did. after having a ranger make sure jazion was up, I invised and ran up to the landing described in other posts. I killed the 2 mobs on the landing. Then with ogre illusion, levitation, sow, and invis I jumped on the banner. While facing the wall and looking up if you move forward you will slide right onto the top of the wall. No jumping required. From here I just ran out on to the top of the stone roof. If you go to the top of the roof you can simply run to the invis ramp and forget about going through the building. But I even eliminated that. I targeted jaxion and ran to the roof of the pagoda looking building next to the stone roof. From there you can hit Jaxion with a tash and he came right down and attacked me. I charmed, did the turn in, he didn't aggro, and then gated out with an encanted ruby. Hope this helps.
You all must be crazy

Got him to spawn 3 minutes before server went down.
Anyways, I have not read all of these posts, but for the most part, it seems like pretty crazy tactics to be using. Here is what I did, all solo:
Get a key for the first door, is all you need.
Invis past Black Reaver and golems into right door. Run into the hall and hopefully undead won't see you. Continue to the invisible ramp, keep going to first tower. Now, what I did is charma mob, attack another and let them beat eachother. With no help, the charm should be close to dead or vice-versa, simply break charm and kill pet or finish off the mob if pet was killed. Do this all the way up. Cast lev, if not already on, stand on the post at base of bridge and tower 2, hug wall while looking up to next bridge. Charm something and continue same tactic for killing. Just rune yourself constantly if you are getting hit and colour stuns are godly spells against lowly mobs such as these. Get to tower 3, kill the goo and SIT THERE. Get full life, full mana, read a book, whatever. Just wait for repop, if a goo, kill it and do the same thing again, just wait. Boring, but big deal, better than being killed. Level 57+ should have NO problems getting up there and just use the mobs to kill eachother. Roaming goo on tower 3 is PH, that's it, just have to kill him. If you know how to play your class, this is a simple part if your epic, can just take time, as all the parts can.

Remedian's post is great, but of course after doing this I have a few minor improvments. I'll break it into stages, so his post can rule, and you have another option

Getting from wall to roof via Banner:
First Invis, run up left stairs to mob and kill it. Then Ogre illus, Levitate, re-invis and go to tunnel door, invis undead, enter and go up to the roofed platform where 2 skellies are. Jump on corner, and lev to banner.

Getting to 1st hut:
No need to pac, mez all the way to the hut. After you are over the wall by the banner, go left and left and face the roofed platform where the skellies are. Lev over to the peak, lev over to the roof of the building where he says pac the mobs. Here drop Invis-undead and invis, then lev to the invis ramp and walk by all the goos to the top. Here you will see 2 roaming phantoms, they can't see you. go right around the hut, pac the one skellie and goo that can see you and you can walk by all the mobs around the first corner. Also if you prefer not to go alone, get some ogre potions in the bazaar, and just plough through the mobs for expo. Ogre seems to be the key to get up the banner. If you want to have your enc clear, you can have other cast heals and nukes from the roofed platform and if you get aggro they will come over to you. GL, again good post since the sight thing seems to be nerfed.
No tracker necessary.
# Aug 31 2004 at 12:10 AM Rating: Decent
If you zone in to CoM and use shifting sight, you can shift from one mob to another to check on weather WoJ is up.

I never used this spell before lvl 65. I found out tonight that you can target from anywhere in the zone and use this spell. You can even use NPC and player's corpses.

Using the different perspectives you can play around with the view enough to target mobs and leap frog from one to another eventually winding up where you want to.
Is it broken?

i have been helping a guild mate for a few days now and nothing, no pops and we have spent hours out here. killed everything and then some but no pop. anyone else have this problem?
Ok, here is how I did it SOLO...
# Jul 07 2004 at 1:32 PM Rating: Excellent
First, confirmed the WoJ was up by tracking. Couldnt track it from entrance with Ranger (max tracking) so ran in just a bit. The WoJ is at the back end of the zone on one of the platforms (third one,to be exact). You can target it from the ground but I couldnt cast anything - "Cant see Target".

Sooo...this is how I got him...Solo'd!

You cannot just walk up to the third platform and do the hand in. There is at least one locked door (at second platform) and the Reaver room (where invisi bridge starts). A very nice and cleaver Troll SK showed me a "secret" way to the invisi bridge that goes AROUND the reaver room and negating the need for two groups and a rogue.

This is the tricky part, after this it's a cake walk...

Gonna try to explain thoroughly. After you zone in run until you come to the Iron Gates that enter the city. You can either get your pet or charm one if you prefer. Once you enter gates, there will be a mob right there (unless cleared of course). Path goes left or right, go right. Run about 3 seconds to the right and you will see a set of bricks with a tunnel, door between them on your left (looks like a pyramid starting) and there is a waterfall to the right of the door. Ok, you there yet? Should only of had 3-4 mobs to kill at this point OR you could invisi up to this point and THEN get your pet out (which is what I did, am lazy). Once you enter the door there is a skellie that you will have to kill. Kill it, then run straight ahead through door (leave the other two undead alone - they wont agro at all). Once you go in the second door, do up the ramp/stairs until you are on the observatory. There are two undead mobs up here that you will have to kill as well.

THIS IS THE TRICKY PART...but after this, you are almost home.

as you are facing looking out the gaurd tower thing with ramp to your back, there is a wall to your right ATTACHED to the guard tower, not the wall ABOVE the guard tower that is further away. If you are confused, just run until you hit the small wall (about 1 second...LOL). Jump up on this wall and you should see a large walkway just out of jumping range. Well, if you notice there is a BANNER on the wall that juts out JUST enough for you to stand on. So, while standing on the wall of the Guard tower, levitate yourself and float over until you are standing on the top ledge of this banner. If you are a short race (Ima gnome) you will have to use illusion troll/earth elemental/or any other large race illusion...I choose earth elemental and it worked for me. IF YOU ARE A SMALL RACE YOU WILL HAVE TO ILLUSION YOURSELF BEFORE FLOATING OUT TO BANNER ON WALL. Otherwise you will be too short to make the required jump.

Ok, assuming you did what I did (Earth elemental and leviated self) float out to banner. There will be a mob directly below you hitting you. Just cast one insanity nuke and he will be dead. So, now you are standing on this banner sticking off the wall. Face the wall that the banner is jutting off of, not the wall further away (banner is almost in a corner). While facing this wall, look up and hit jump and forward...you will jump up onto the ledge of a walkway. There will be lots of mobs up here most stationary but some wanderers so have Paci and Mezz/memblur up before you jumped. I timed it to when there were no roamers so had no problem.

THAT IS THE HARD PART...ONCE YOU DO THIS, YOU ARE BASICALLY DONE.

Now, there is a door immediately to your right...open, but dont enter, there are three or four mobs inside. Paci or Mezz/memblur them (I like paci). There are two doors at opposite end of room, take the door to the LEFT! PAY ATTENTION HERE.....As soon as you enter that door, there is a FAKE WALL ON THE LEFT, dont run down hallway, enter door, face left, go through invisi wall.

Once you did this you are on the invisi bridge that takes you to the platforms...CONGRATS! YOU JUST BYPASSED THE REAVERS!!!

There will be some goo things on the invisi bridge so just Paci or Mezz/Memblurr and follow invisi bridge. After you get to bridge between the first and second huts/platforms, there are a series of about 6-8 mobs. Some are undead so you cant invisi or invisiU and run past them...have to paci. I had to mezz/memblur one goo that is a wanderer but made it without even getting touched. At the second hut is, the bridge ends. You cant go any further cause the door is locked. Previous posts suggest you can just levitate around the second hut and end up on the otherside but this IS NOT POSSIBLE, I tried a couple of times. YOu get close, but not far enough.

This is the final part. As you are standing in front of the locked door, levitate yourself. You WILL get agro from one mob inside the locked door but just mezz and memblur him. With Levi on, float out to the right of the second hut, towards the third hut. Be looking up and you will remain afloat high above the city. As you are floating above the city, look towards the third hut and target the WoJ...cast a nuke (or any spell that will get you agro) and he will FALL FROM THE PLATFORM TO THE GROUND below.

once down there, levi down to him, charm him and do turn in. There will be mobs below, from where he lands but dont worry, just mezz them on the way down or have your new pet attack them. Will only be 2-3 below you, where he drops so dont freak out. Have gate up and *POOF* you done.

I tried all the other tips and tricks and nothing worked for me. Spent two days here doing this and I promise, this is the less hassle way to get it...You can target him from the ground but I could not cast anything on him, "cannot see target", even with extended range IV!! If you can target him AND cast a spell, he should drop right on you...he doesnt path down the invisi bridge like other posts say, he falls right down to the ground.

By the way, I am a 65 chanter on Tunare...send me a tell in game (if you on Tunare) and I will take you there...takes less than an hour I promise (if he's up - get tracker to check first). I also used low level spells like Pacy and Boltran's Charm rather than the mana intensive 60+ spells Pacification and Command of druzzil (700 mana!). Good luck...you can do it!
RE: Ok, here is how I did it SOLO...
# Sep 14 2004 at 10:31 AM Rating: Decent
Some added comments to my first post...

I have now done this "solo" several times showing other chanter friends and like Tenniel posted, it IS possible to levi around second hut to the walkway...woohoo! If you cant, dont worry, pulling by levitating and targeting WoJ still works fine. By Levitating around the hut, you can camp the spot and dont need the use of a tracker to make sure that WoJ is up.

Some added comments:
If you dont successfully levi around the locked hut on the first attempt, dont worry...just run through the air back over to the invisi bridge and repeat the steps....but if you do it Tenniel's way, it works everytime!

Also, when trying to "bypass reavers" the best way I have found is to keep levi on when you land on the ledge and use OGRE illusion...then, all you have to do is use the up arrow from the bannor ledge and you will move over the wall to the walkway...just be sure to stop pushing up arrow or you will go over the entire walkway, which is what I did the first time...DOH : )

Keep up the hard work chanters...this entire epic is almost entirely soloable (making up my own words as I go) so dont give up!!

YES, THERE IS A WAY TO LEVI AROUND THE 2ND HUT. I am actually writing while camping this WoJ. Here is how I did it.

When you come to the locked door of the 2nd hut, u notice that there isn't a ledge surrounding it like the first hut. What I did was:
1. Turn off Lev
2. Illusion Ogre form becuase they can jump higher
3. Walk on the ledge that runs along each side of the walkway, till u hit the 2nd hut. Be careful not to fall.
4. Now you notice, there is a (white) step up as u reach the ledge/hut wall and u can step up it... Do so.
5. Now face the locked door of the 2nd hut and you notice that there is a (grey)ledge outlining the door that you can jump onto. Do so.
6. Take off Ogre form, and cast lev on urself, or imp or air illusion. (for speed, i used J-boots)
7. Now hug the wall as close as u can and run around to the other path. Its really not that difficult. Just remember to look up, or have ur finger on keypad 9.

(note) before Levitating around the 2nd hut, a good idea would be to pull mobs on the other ledge and kill them otherwise you might get bonked a couple of times on the other side.

Believe me, this works

I used your technique today and it pretty much worked. I couldn't get on top of the door though so I just tried it from the white step. I amde it around to the other walkway without a problem. Thanks

The Correct Spawn Cycle time...as of April 10th, 2004...is 22 minutes. It IS the 3rd Hut and she spawns on the ledge. She IS charmable. I personally watched 2 Enchanters do the turn in.

Recently while on a raid in CoM for a guildies shammy epic we got up to Mr. Jaxion, here. Well anyhow, some one jumped the gun and attacked him off the bat. (Hes right next to the elevator, so I cant blame them for getting jumpy.)
Someone said mez him, so I tried GoK on him a few times with lotsa resists.
Lukily, a cleric got a good atone off. (Had a clicky, I believe.) Unfortunatley, not soon enough for me. =(
The lvl 62 chanter said afterwards that all of her mezzes were resisted, and charm didn't work at all.
I noticed he con'd amiable before I started mezing. So... do you still indeed need to charm him, or, can you just hand in the gem?

Another guild happened to be there, at the time, although I'm not sure how they would make him become amiable to everyone... My only guess would be someone dire charmed him, but I'm not sure if that makes everyone else or amiable, or indifferent and just you amiable like other charms. And even then, how could he attack all of us?

We sat next to him for about an hour waiting for someone to MQ, who never showed. On top of that, I neglected to look up what I need for my epic because I was in a hurry, and didn't pick up my gems yet.. So overall, an "interesting", but waisted evening. =/
---------
Upon further inspection, I've realised I'm talking about a COMPLETELY different mob. so.. Ignore everything I've said, lol.

Explains a few things...

# Jan 07 2004 at 3:18 PM Rating: Decent
when facing the final tower on 3rd level the goo spawns on the left hand side. The timer for the PH/Jaxion is about 18 minutes.

Due to the pain that getting this guy to spawn can be (I was there for about 3 1/2 hours before he came in and it was the last cycle everyone was going to do before leaving) if there are multiple chanters who need this piece take all of them up. One chanter can charm and everyone can turn in off that one charm. Good luck!
Spawn loc and PH
# Dec 15 2003 at 6:48 PM Rating: Decent
Confirmed loc.
PH was a Goo for us circling the very topmost tower (Neh Ashiir's tower). Think theres only one roamer there max 2.
He spawned right after one PH.
Grats to our chanter.
Why pull down when you can sit on his PH

Just levitate and go around the locked 2nd tower to the 3rd. You get aggro, but you're a chanter deal with it.

Filter the GARBAGE!
# Nov 06 2003 at 3:58 AM Rating: Decent
I am going to restate this from a post somewhere in this mess to save a TON of people a TON of time! First off, when I camped this guy I tried sooo many methods posted below. Eventually, with the stupid charm/pull him down/get him to drop thing, got him killed. That day was one of the darkest days I've seen in a long time. I spent the next TWO WEEKS, every time I signed on I would be there in the middle of CoM waiting for him to spawn, clear the whole area up there a few times via the charm, put mobs up against eachother method, beating myself over the head for having gotten him killed. FINALLY, I came back to this board in total frustration and read a post below that has since never been mentioned, and VERY surprisingly so...

THE BEST METHOD is the fear method!! WORKS BRILLIANTLY, EASY, FIRST TIME, NO PROBLEMS...

When the Wraith spawns, Bind sight on him. (no casting limit range to bind sight)

Fear him, then drop Bind sight, but KEEP HIM TARGETTED and you'll come back to yourself. No hurry, run over to the spot that would be JUST after the first building up above that WoJ would pass through (that's full of mobs) and stand below the ramp. A good spot is just before the turn in the ramp on the way to the second floating building up there. CAST BIND SIGHT again (you remembered to keep him targetted) and keep trying to recast fear on him until he's in range. The fear will wear off RIGHT as he's just about over you. (It's perfect timing. I don't remember if I tashed him first, I don't think I did though so don't worry about doing that.) And since you just recast it he'll be feared again and continue his path.

You run to where that invis-like ramp is in the sky coming out of the second building. Wraith of Jaxion will run through the second building and start running down the inviso ramp, fear will wear off with PERFECT timing, and Wraith of Jaxion will come after you immediately dropping down off of the inviso ramp!!! Charm/turn in VOILA! Simple, add free, hassle-free, and I just saved you from kicking yourself like I did for TWO WEEKS because i hadn't learned about this technique earlier and failed with the other methods getting him killed.

He's a LONG, obnoxious spawn. This would be the best way to get him down. And IF you fail with THIS method (which would be hard to do cause it's almost fool proof) you can easily evac, Wraith is still at spawn spot and you can go back and try him again.

JESUS! someone read my post! LOL! since it was forever go, and almost at the BOTTOM of this page, let me repost it here....
-----------------
this is super easy! ive seen it done twice just today (one was me).

you need the following:

YOU (enchanter)
62+ Necro

he walks along this small bridge waaaaaaaaaaay up in the air, hehe, its high.

The hardest thing to do, is targeting him.

ANYHOW, get the necro to target him, then cast his highest fear.

the necro then runs to the mouth of the castle, and continues to fear him. he'll walk all the way down the path, to you! There, you charm him, and IMMEDIATLEY tell him to sit.

You then hand in your emerald, and Blammo! you have it completed.

You need a 62+ so you dont take aggro, its awesome.

Thanks to Hopesn for telling me about this (and all her help through my epic), and to Prance, that WONDERFUL necro with nothing but kindness!

If you ever see Uccello (me) on Prexus, Ill be there to help you, with anything

also, THANKS TO HOPESN AND PRANCE!

Heres what id admend and change about that post. When i did it, i was like, level 56 or somthing... i dont remember it was a while back... 2k2.... hrm, man, i might ahve been just 51.... ANYHOW, you yourself can do it now, Use your fear, be a higher level (id advise around 60+) and just fear the mob, hes not hard. you DONT need to tash, he'll walk right out to you. hes not on your faction like he would be with charm, so hes not KoS, he doesnt get buddies, he just comes out alone. PLEASE, im trying to help you guys, this is SO easy!
-------------------------------------------------
okay, i posted that almost a year and a half ago, i have since gotten my epic, and have gotten about 3 server wide tells about this method. Im suprised there hasnt been more.

Guys, if you EVER need epic help, ive done it all, i can try to help you out.

;tell prexus.uccello hi! i need help with suchandsuch!

just earlier today, i had a chanter ask me how to do this, i was afk, but responded, she already had it done, but needed to know how to get to the lady in teh hole. i logged onto her server, made a rogue, and LEAD HER TEAM through the hole.

Please, dont be afraid to ask! im usually bored as is! i tend to play at nights, CST, try to get me sometime!

spawn point after revamp
# Oct 23 2003 at 2:04 AM Rating: Decent
I just completed this part of the epic on 10-22-03. I had a hard time trying to find out if his spawn point changed after the revamp, well it didn't. He spawned at approx pos 104 pos 157. PH was the goo that circles the last building. It is possible to target the goo from the floor level, but didn't try casting on him, so I had to find a LFG rogue that wanted to tag along. Only door he had to pick was castle entrance, and then the 2nd building up top. Once through the 2nd building myself 65 enchanter with DC pet and 65 mage easily kept the 3rd tier cleared. Halfway during the day I decided to start killing the goo that circles the last building. 2 PH's later Wraith of Jaxon spawned and I did my charm/turn in.

It's not entirely difficult to do the turn in from the ground; I did it pretty much the same way as the others but I found those posts ambiguous so hopefully this will clarify one method. Go to loc 250, 200 and look up toward the final platform. You need to wait for a wandering goo to be sitting on the edge of the crack in the bridge on the opposite side as Wraith. If you walk around you'll eventually find a spot where you can cast charm without getting the "you cannot see target" message, so charm the goo, tell the pet to guard here, and cast sight on the goo. Go to third person view, target Wraith, and tell the pet to attack him. Once they're fighting, repeatedly click pet back off and the goo will slowly move toward you. Eventually both the goo and Wraith will fall off the edge and end up around loc 200, 70, so all you need to do after that is mez wraith, invis, mez the goo, charm Wraith, and turn in the dull ruby.

This is obviously more difficult if Wraith is not up. You either need to leave and try again when he happens to be up (my preferred method), or use charm to try and kill everything on the final platform (except the reaver inside), which is a PITA, and will probably take like 6 hours due to anti-camp. I was level 62 for this and didn't have any problem with adds, but if there are any other mobs around your goo pet while it's still on the platform they will attack the pet. However, even if they do, it shouldn't be a big deal; just mez everything and you'll be fine. The area on the ground is conveniently completely clear. I was also completely unable to cast offensive spells on anything except that goo when it's right next to the crack due to "cannot see target" messages. How you'd be able to directly charm Wraith when he's still up there I don't know. So good luck enchanters, and may the schwartz be with you.

Thanks for the great info. I have a feeling you need an Extended Range focus item to do this. I tried today, was able to target the mob by the wraith, and was able to fiddle around enough to not get the "you cannot see target" message. I instead got the "target is out of range" message though.

I will be going back with an ER item equipped. I'll update this post to let you know how it went.

Cheers,

Hi,
Ok, just got done with Jaxion in CoM. First of all, let me preface this with, i can't say it will happen for you, but it worked for me. Yes, Grav Flux is nerfed. So here is what it did- Cleared the upper platform, using bind site charm and turn the mobs against each other. When only Jaxion and the last mob were left i made the charmed mob follow me to his death in the 2nd house. Now for Jaxion, i casted Howl on him, took him to the geo sticking area, then charmed him told him to follow, moved to the back of the middle house before the bridges and WHAMO, he fell off the bridge to me! Turned in the ruby and was off. Some thoughts, you might have to play around with him a bit, what i mean by that, is have him guard, follow guard follow, to get him to fall. I was prepared to do that. No rogue needed for this, just some creative thinking and patience ).
Good Luck.

How did you get the mobs to not come after you when they finished each other off?

And can a 64 chanter and a 51 chanter use the strategy that Liahanna posted? This is the last piece I need for Test of Charm and itd be appreciated. Thanks!

Oh, and by the way, they completely nerfed gravity flux. It doesn't send anything in the air in any zone. I tested it on myself and on mobs in levitate and non levitate zones, nothin. Didn't get 2 inches off the ground =\
Some Techniques
# Jun 11 2003 at 7:19 PM Rating: Decent
Here are some techniques I found useful to kill the wraith of jaxion's place holders. Kill yourself a little path back to right underneath that last building, its not hard, there's only about 8 greenies in the way. Just pacify and single pull them. When your under a building there, target a goo and bind sight up, then target the place holder, whatever it may be, and bind sight to it, then proceed to charm it. When you charm it, any mob that's near up there will aggro on it, so keep telling your mob "back off" and he will keep collecting more and more mobs on him. Eventually, you'll get 12 mobs on him and he'll go down pretty fast. At this moment, if your not sure he was the placeholder, run under to where the collection of mobs are (make sure you have one previously targeted) charm it, and bind sight, that one will go down too. I just did this a few minutes ago, and for some odd reason, a skeleton was the PH. Oh well, i took down that skele, and 3 goelms from the bottom. A technique to get the actual wraith of jaxion down w/o killing him would be this. Pacify other mobs around him, charm the wraith, and make him stop by hitting the guard button over that gap in the walkway, then un-charm. I did this with a goo once, and he "bugged" his way down, and just fell on the ground, if your there for him to hit you, he won't go back up. At that point, you can mez, charm, and be on your way.
Easy way without grav flux

Go to where you would normaly grav flux up, but look up towards the third turret. Eventually you will be able to target a wandering ooze. Cast shifting sight on that ooze, then hit f9 a couple of times and pan the camera around. If wraith is up you will be able to target him this way. Then to get him down you need to cast invoke fear directly underneath him, and do it again when hes midway between turrets 1 and 2. Go back and wait at the grav flux place and he should come to you.

I did this at 65, so no trains. Not sure how high youd need to be for this. 60 might get ugly.
Enchanter can do this part solo (if it's up)

Uses pacify to get yourself into CoM roughly +240,-240.
Gravity flux yourself up onto the semi-invisible ramp. Get as fae west on that ramp as you can.
Cast levitate on yourself.
If Wraith of Jaxion is up, you will be able to target him from there. Target him.
Use levitate to avoid mobs and get to roughly +200,+200.
You will be able to land Tash on Wraith of Jaxion from there.
Go back to the corner with the semi-invisible ramp, and wait for him. It may take a minute or two, but he will find you.
Other CoM mobs do not assist the Wraith of Jaxion because he is an epic quest NPC :o)
So when he finds you, charm and trade. Then gate.

Mission accomplised.

Well, I succeeded just now (with the wonderful help of the Legends of Westwood guild on Xev). I tried a couple of times to use the Gflux and pull technique. I also tried targeting him and nuking from below. Neither worked and the folks I was with informed me that he will NOT come alone, regardless if he is an epic NPC, he will bring company.

I wish this technique worked for me, but it seemed like tagging along on a Reaver raid was the only way plausible.

I tried this technique several times. Took me a while to get the hang of landing after Gflux, but once on the ramp I was able to target Jaxion. I had a couple problems with this technique though:

No matter what I tried, I got a message that my target was out of range. I have Ext Rng III focus item too. I tried lev-ing as close as I could but still got that message. When leving to 200,200 as recommended I sank and couldn't get back on ramp - I had to Gflux myself again.

I landed on the ramp 4 times. 2 of those times I ended up with a huge train piling down on me. I have no idea why sometimes I got trained and other times I did not.

Seemed like I was so close too...
