Got her today with just myself and a cleric merc at 54. I resisted Clockwork Poison every time, which seemed to proc at least once per round of attack. I had around 6200 hp, 1420 ac, and 1250 atk with my merc's buffs and nothing else. Used the bite of the shissar 6 poison which is vendor bought, a haste pot, and skinspikes 6. Obviously pretty heavily twinked, but it IS doable solo (with merc). Still not a cakewalk, as the poison doesn't hit her full force due to her resists.

Female/Human Rogue. She's not that hard. had guild mates help me, 66Druid, 70Mage, 67Cleric, 57Zerker, and my 51rogue. She wasnt that hard. Had mage pet tank her with zerker. Backstabbed her a few times, and she died lol. looted everything off her then ported out.

She spawned right where Yendar depsawned.

I read on one site an old strategy posting saying that the easiest way to kill her was to fear-kite while everyone beat on her... just thought I should point out that now, at least, she's immune to fear spells. Maybe SoE thought that made her too easy :).

Fear did seem to get a lot of aggro, though: I tried casting it on her and she came crawling straight towards me. Might be useful if you have to aggro-kite to have a Necro or SK just run ahead and chain Fear on her.

We still killed her with 7 people from mid 50s up, but the tank was probably spending more time spinning than tanking :). I'm almost embarassed to admit that the 70 Rogue who came along ungrouped did more damage than the other six of us who were in a group and thereby got the kill XP :).

She will spawn where Yendar is standing when you do the turnin. We had a 62 druid snare her and get aggro, then kite her around while a 55 rogue, 65 palidan and 65 mage followed behind. The druid took a little damage trying to get snare to stick and after that it was cake. No one else took a point of damage. Took only a few minutes to finish her.

Lessons Learned

Some experiences of killing Renux in Steamfont. I've seen Renux killed 3 times while trying to get my items. The make up of the three groups were as follows:
1. 65 Beastlord, 65 Rogue
2. 65 Ranger, 65 Cleric, 52 Rogue
3. (my group) 47 Ranger, 64 Shaman, 61 Wizard, 55 Cleric, 55 Magician, 53 Rogue

The first group had no problems, the beastie tanked her. The second group had the most trouble until the Cleric got aggro (from healing the Ranger) and started kiting her. They took the longest killing her. My group only suffered one death, the ranger got spin stunned on the first hit and folded in a matter of seconds. After that, the Wizzie kited her and the rest of us beat her to death. Between the Shaman DOTs, the Wizzies nukes the Rogue and water pet backstabs, my group had the fastest kill. That Spin stun will definitely ruin a tanks day (not to mention what it does to rangers).

For the easiest and quickest kill I would recommend what others in this thread have said:
Kite her, with lots of dots and backstabs, and don't let her hit the Ranger.
Not that easy.

I soloed her as a 65 shaman on 03/21/04 morning. Not that easy considering she quads 200 so 800 per shot. Suggest you let pet tank.
Eazy Kill

Interesting fight

My guildies and I took down Renux on 8/4/03 in a fun little battle. 61 Wiz, 52 Druid, 54 Bard, and 51 Rogue (moi). Yendar wasn't up the night before (someone must have done the turn-in); I spent two hours using the keyphrase with his brother in Ak'Anon, to no avail. He was up when we got there the next night, and after buffing up, did the turn-in right next to the PoK book (would have proven useful for an escape, had it been necessary).

Renux spawned, everyone but me chucked snares at her, and the Wizard's landed. The Wiz would hold aggro and kite for the rest of the fight, for the most part. The druid landed every DoT he had, and fortunately, managed to get aggro right after the Wiz had called OOM about two-thirds of the way through the battle. The bard managed to take over snaring and run a debuff without EVER attaining aggro. How often does THAT happen?

In any case, I started meleeing when Renux was at about 80% health. I Evaded constantly, and never got a scratch. She resisted Blinding Poison I, and was a tough cookie to land a solid backstab on. She didn't show any ill effects of the damage delivered until at 3% HP, where she went down fast from nukes.

Dropped the three guaranteed items (note, dagger, and sword) and *two* Ravenscale Cloaks. I should protest that I should have gotten something more useful - the mask or even the shoulderpads AT LEAST. But after a couple of months stalled at even getting to Hate for my Book of Souls, I'm just glad to be moving forward. Now, on to finding an invite to a General party...

Took down Renux on 7/23/03. 59 druid (me), 50 rogue, and 57 war. When rogue spawned renux, i snared her, and just kited her the whole battle. Casted Winged Death, epic dot, and snare (for agro). War and rogue beat up on her, took about 5 minutes. Dropped parchment, dagger, triloch skean, ravenscale shoulderpads and neckguard.

Me: 54 bard 919ac 1750ishHP unbuffed about 80MR unbuffed.

Attempted to solo her for a rogue friend; It's conceivable I could have done it but it would have taken a LONG time, I heard shes around 30kHPs but thats likely an overestimate; In my experience she regens about 100hp/tick so she probably has less. DoTs of all flavors, fire, cold, disease, poison and magic, were tried all were about 50% resisted, pretty annoying since I've chanted down other level 51 MoBs with less resists. I was taking HPs off solo but it was very slow, luckily I got a 62 druid friend to come in and help finish her.

Kiting strategies: if you bring a bard bring a 55+ bard for OOS; Also bring a druid or wizard and maybe even a shaman and/or enchanter for the resist debuffs. NEVER, and I repeat NEVER get in melee range if your kiting her, a bard can kite her unsnared, but mana casters should try to get snare to stick early and never let it wear off. I was in melee range once, got hit with that stun proc from her scean and lost 1640 HPs in 6 seconds flat (logs below) stunned the whole time, a druid or wizard would most likely have the same issue. Stick some resist debuffs like OOS or mala/malo or a tash and throw a bunch of dots on her she should be easy with a couple mid 50s kite classes, probably soloable by one 65 wiz, dru or brd. She is also hard to root, I notice our 62 druid's root never lasted more than 6 seconds.

For a group bring a couple good tanks she hit me for 205max and 1630HP/6sec is 272DPS so bring a few cheal clerics or tanks with better AC than a bard :) I say a couple tanks because if she hits one with that stun he/she could have trouble holding aggro. Also bring a bunch of clerics, probably 2 solid mid 50s or one solid 65ish group. Kiting is definitly the way to go though, save calling in the big firepower for the general and just get your druid, wizard or bard friends to kill this one.

Also FYI, Metallurgist Mirakzin decided he would join in when I was there, I was between the PoK book and dru ring and he added from somewhere. He was red at 54 uncharmable ("This NPC cannot be charmed.") resisted snares at 54 and has a good dispell (wiped lev and selos easily enough) I was able to lose him by snaring Renux and dragging him over to lfay zone then using selo's to get out of his forget range but probably luck he didn't nuke so track him down in the zone before you engage. This would probably be harder for a wizard or druid to do, he seems to run about sow speed.

Long post I know but I like having all the info, she is Qeynos rogue faction as noted above so she is not kos unless they hate you so just hail her or something once she's spawned and until your group gets set up, was in Qeynos since, the faction hit appears to be minor.

Took her down early in the morning with a 65 warrior, 50 rogue (me), 50 druid, 50 shaman. The warrior had the book of souls on a 65 rogue alt. Anyway he turned in the book, i gave parchment and she spawned. Heh here comes my mistake, I had to hold aggro till he could get the war so i disarmed (failed) her. I underestimated her and she killed me, hit for 280 at the highest. But by the time i ran back there the war had just logged in and i joined in. He did fine, had to kite for a bit to let the healers get mana back. All and all an easy fight, minus the death =). Dropped the usual plus 1 ravenscale belt and cloak.

All you need to take her out is one druid. Period. So dont go wasting your time trying to get togther all that firepower. Its not necessary. Call in your crew for the General. Solo'd her yesterday. Snared her. Rooted her. Dotted her. Killed her. Elysians are tougher. Level 55 Druid with epic and no uber gear, C3.

Pretty simple kill. A level 65 guildie Magician soloed her for me after a druid snared her. Went down pretty quickly.

Was in the Bazaar today, when I got a tell from a rogue needing my assistance with an epic mob.

I was a little wary, as I was just 2 blue into 54 after un-dinging and re-dinging. I went anyway, because I'm always eager to help in Epic matters.

Went to Steamfront with 52 Rogue (epic guy), 48 rogue, 56 Shammy, 54 necro (me) and some druids of various levels. Druids all tried snaring her which didnt work, but we knew that. That was the plan. I summoned my 53 rogue pet, and while the druids took turns kiting her around the rogues all got behind her and did their thing. Aggro never got off druids so everything went very smoothly and very fast.

All in all what we had was overkill. Congratulations to Vishes Stabbins (hehe love the name) of <Orsa Amitca> on E'Ci for his epic piece!

I went after Renux this weekend. I was terribly nervous based on posts here. I couldn't find get a 57 SK to come with me so I figured we would just tank it.

2 groups low man was a 51 bard high was 60. 60 War, 60 Pally, 60 Shammy along with some monks druids and me 53 Rogue.

Shammy buffed us with Poison resistance, etc. Renux only proced 2 times on the warrior. She went down in only a matter of minutes and the warrior lost no more than 1 bub of health.

I couldn't believe I worried about this. Renux is easily tankable so go get her!

High Poison Resist
# Sep 09 2002 at 1:08 AM Rating: Decent
I was with my guild helping a member do her Rogue Epic with my lvl 50 Shaman. She resisted my Malosi spell but the slow and debuff spells took just fine. However, the three Envonomed Bolts I threw at her just bounced off. I suspect she has a very high poison resistance, so try other kinds of attacks.
# Aug 03 2002 at 10:02 PM Rating: Decent
brought a necro, and 3 shammies... first shammy died early. another shammy died later. so basically you can do this fight with rogue + necro + shammy, i was 51 and both of the other guys were 52-54 range. it seemed like pie at first, the necro splurted and got major aggro while I would attack her back while the necro ran her around. i just kept evading and I rarely got hit. she DOES attack pets(i gave a green jade broadsword to the necro pet WHEW that was a waste ;D), but she has 'ok' regen during most of the fight, but with necro dots and whatnot I couldnt really tell. until... we got her very very low and she began to run.. hell, I thought I got her, then her health just boomed quickly right up to 20% again. arg. that happened about 8 times. last time I landed a good backstab and the necromancer casted his irrestible lifetap for over 400, over 700 damage as she was running. she FINALLY died. snare never landed, but root did occassionally hold(stopped rooting after I began to attack her), and not a single malosi landed either. the pets hitting at the back(with /pet taunt off) + sow on pets, did a lot of damage. but, those pets were dealt with and killed after they had done enough damage. all in all she isnt all TOO hard up until she starts running. bring 1 or 2 wizards that have lures or something like that and when she is REALLY low(i mean, you can barely see a pixel of her health left, before she regens), get them both to nuke at the same time. after she starts running a bit she says some phrase something about how you should be ashamed that a woman something something heart. 5 or 6 seconds after that her health will boom. kill her at this time.

The wizard did about 35k and had it perma-snared with a rightclick range with snare on it, the wizard has a total of 13 Flowing Thought+ epic+ c3 and he used about 7 and a half bubs of mana on this mob, just to show that u can solo this guy, i did really do that much damage but i could atleast say i negated her regen:P.

There Is A Method To This Madness
# May 25 2002 at 9:40 PM Rating: Default
This is not as hard as you'd think it to be. Me (51 rogue), 52 rogue, 56 druid, 48 shaman and 47 enchanter did this. First time we tried it we failed miserably. Renux resisted snare and proced on ranger dispelling his wolf form.

We paniced but luckily i hadnt gotten aggro yet so i didn't zone all the other did (WARNING: If you are the one who hands the items in for Renux to spawn and you zone out, Renux goes poof). So anyways Ranger go poof, all the others zoned.

On our second try we were much mor organized. The ranger snared and Renux resisted again but because they had zoned she was at Lfay zone. With my Mrylo bracer i summoned throwing knives and gave some to the other rogue. He then kept aggro by shooting her and running around to prevent getting hit. The encahnter then tashed Renux and she proceeded to follow the enchanter. I got back aggro with more knives and ran her around and around and around and around and around until the ranger's snare took hold.

After Snare did take hold it was a snap. The ranger proceeded to walked backwards with aggro, snaring continusoly and shooting arrows while chanter tashed, shaman DoTed and me and the other rogue crippled her from behind.

Renux has around 15k hp so it took a couple minitues but in the end it was worth it. She droped a total of 17pp, 2 Ravenscale shoulders, jagged diamond dagger, thorllics skean and the translated parchment.

I do not suggest this method to those who dont know waht they are doing. For a while it was looking pretty bad for me. use SoW/SoE NOT wolf form because Clockwork Posion (throllic skean proc) will dispell it (i think, atleast somehow it went away). levitate would help a abit to get more distance from her as Steamfont is a mountainy zone and she doesnt loat so you could get some more distance, this is why SoE (spirit of eagle) would be best for this.

Special thanks to Tullik of Grey Council, Ragnaok of Ring of the Chosen, Dudat and Kagetan of Azure leigon.

I hope this helped you all!

me (59 druid) and friend (52 rogue) duo'd her today. Really simple. have rogue do turn ins---then as SOON as renux pops rogue backs off---druid snares. If it doesn't stick keep doing it till it does, then keep casting it (to hold agro) while the lone rogue runs behind and bashes her face in. It's called agro kiting. Very simple. But she has many many hp's so it takes a while. Just make sure the snarer is of appropriate level to get snare to stick. Had over one half of mine resisted. Just keep goin till you get it. Took us 15mins to kill her, but had no problems. Good luck guys
