It appears that the more modern versions of Xygoz have been split off from this article.

So, the Frozen Zweihander listed should not be the Aged one.

Additionally, Xygoz 1.0 doesn't cast Lullaby of Xygoz or Dragon Bellow. Instead he casts Mesmerizing Breath:

How do you get XY to spawn?

He'll spawn automatically after his timer passes which I think is 7 days. He should also be up after a server reset unless that was changed when VP was updated during PoP years.

This entire room and fight is a complete failure on Sonys part. It lacks forethought and just shows how bad they can be at programming at times. Remove his fear... or remove the teleport pad.... or remove the Tether... any one of those 3 would be fine. It is not a challenge at all when you get feared over a teleport pad and forced to zone out. Its not "game mechanics" its just crap programming and lack of forethought.

The catbox issue is caused by being feared too far away from him. Not sure on the exact distance, but if he keeps fearing you eventually you'll end up in time-out. This is a particular issue for high agro pet classes (cough, mages) as you'll get feared and start running (walking) back, and then get feared again. Other classes trying to solo it will simply be summoned back to Xygoz.

The teleport pad issue was the most annoying for me. I solo'd it a few times as a mage, the fear really wasn't much of an issue as it died pretty fast. I've been molo'ing it recently with a bard, and find myself hitting the teleport pad often. Way more annoying than the catbox (which can be avoided), teleport pad is just dumb luck.

I'm pretty sure the fear is agrolist, ie you can't avoid it. Also pretty sure the fear is NOT single target.

Some tips, most should be obvious but...

1. Turn off run.
2. Clear out his guardians and the 2 pathing wurms before engaging.
3. Make a run/walk toggle so you can run back quickly if you don't get summoned back. Toggle it back to walk after 2-3 seconds (regardless if you get back to him or not).
4. Park a CoH bot there if you want to get serious.
5. Pray fear doesn't wear off when you're standing on the telepad.

Killed about 15 times: 4 ALEX, 3 Smoldering Cudgels, 2 FZ's, 1 Razor Fang, 1 Spear. Never saw a Null staff. Lots of other crap also (mostly dropped plate BP for me, often 2 BP's and nothing else).

SK soloable in about 2.5 minutes. I'm not sure what caused others to get banished to the cat room, but it was a straight ZZZZzzzz fest for me. I did not have HT or it would have been faster. Someday I'll get an ALEX of my own...someday.

Well considering that you're an SK, one of the only 2 classes which have the Fearless AA (cannot be feared) that would explain why you did not have a problem with being feared into the cat room.

I used the goblin illusion and got past the door ducking and unducking, it did not work with levi on once off it took about 2 seconds to get through.
oh yeah

hes teatherd to so you cant pull him out of the room so have fun getting port over and over and over to skyfire. as a warrior hes undoable with a war merc.... maybe a pet class could send pet and sit far away from room but everyone else is screwed

I had the same thing happen to me this past summer (2009). I was soloing him, I can't recall what percentage I had gotten him to, but I know I was making progress inbetween the fears and then 'poof'. I was in the Kitty Room. I had forgotten that room exsisted.

shrink an use an illusion clicky to get through.. 85 rogue with max pick coud NOT open the door
Updated info on this guy
# Feb 02 2009 at 7:32 PM Rating: Decent
This mob is rough but by no means the toughest in the zone. Silverwing is harder fight IMO, just gotta be prepared is all. BTW, there's no key for the door leading to his room (I've killed every mob in the zone in addition to the 6 named dragosn), bring along a rogue or bard to pick the lock and you're golden.

I too have been unsuccessful in locating the key. If anyone knows how to get keyed, please post. I don't have a rogue and can't easily get through this door. Everyone says you can duck/shrink and shadow step through; I have never been able to do that. :(
# Nov 12 2008 at 2:04 PM Rating: Decent
Well they've managed to turn bad to worse. Now not only do you have to deal with being banished to a stupid cat room you also need a key to get to his area, or a rogue to pick the lock. I am an 85 Warrior and I had an 85 SK with me with our cleric mercs, both with basically the best possible group able gear as of SoF with some raid gear mixed in up to mid-tier SoF. We were able to completely thrash the zone pulling 20+ mobs at a time, but when we got to the door prior to the portcullis we got the message like this is locked and you are not holding the key. So we went back and killed the other raid mobs, no keys. We tried shrinking and ducking and jumping in the smallest illusion like in Crystallos with no luck. We didn't kill all of the named, but we did kill all of them on the way, which would logically have a key for progression, with nothing. I think you're now going to have to bring a rogue to pick the lock. I have attempted him in the past and did not need a key for this area, so this is something new.

Honestly, I would rather them increase the difficulty of the mob instead of having to jump through ludicrous hoops to beat this mob. What they have done is made it possible for Knights to duo him (with full fear resist AAs) having a rogue to pick the lock to open the door. That is IF the lock can even be picked, I've never used the pick lock skill so I don't really know how it works. It wouldn't surprise me if they made you go through a full key quest to be able to attain access to this portion of the zone. And still, even when you do get there you still have to deal with the damn cat room.

Who knows, maybe they replaced the cat room with the locked doors. I would be much happier if they did that. I feel like the cat room is completely ridiculous and it seems like a cop out to make a mob that should be relatively easy a pain in the ***.

Anyway, if anyone has any update on this please reply. I am going to go back in with a rogue next time to try and pick the lock. I'll let you know if it works.

There is probably a cat room in every zone.

You end up in the cat room when the game attempts to place you in an area that is out of bounds.

Instead of crashing the zone / server, the game resolves your location conflict by placing you in the cat room.

I've been in the cat room in atleast 5 zones that I can remember. There was a period, oohhhh about 3? 4? years ago where you could fall through zone surfaces exceptionally easily.

This fight is so stupid. We tried killing him twice, and twice the same crap happened. Part way into the fight we get feared and randomly banished to the Cat Room (See below). This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen. It makes this fight impossible without a Mage to CoH you back, and I'm not even sure if that works as I have not tested it yet.

I got key to this zone on my berserker and new main Ogrebane on AB server. I wetn up and attacked Xygoz and he immediately went to 80% hp, hit me a couple of times and feared me. I then got ported into a box that was not on the map, which had pictures of RL cats plastered on its walls apart from 1 wall that was black with garbled white writing on it. Could this be a gm holding box or something. ANyone ever had this happened perhaps the old vp raiders back from the kunark era if any paruse these boards could tell me.

Tried to duo Xygoz tonight and both toons wound up in the damn cat room. Very much NOT a fun experience after spending the time to clear to him. Bleh. Cat room is a cube which is centered on location 0,0,0.

YES! A few of us were hunting in there and somehow the mage and a beastlord got sent to the cat room.! It was fortunate that we actually had a druid, as the BL had no gate pots on him. We killed Xygoz (no ALEX /cry) and the mage CoHed us all into the room, where we took copious screenshots, and then ported out. Really wierd experience. What WERE they on?
Cat room

There seems to be a "cat room" in most, if not all zones. I got stuck in one many years back in Erudin. I was playing a monk and it was around 2001 so I had to get a GM to come get me out. There are many rumors about what the rooms are for but the cat is a GMs cat and the writing is a Loc. For instance the Loc written on 2 of the walls in Erudin was the exact Loc of the top of the fountain. Some speculate that you can enter the room by camping and coming back at that exact loc but I could not verify that. I believe it is just a safe room for when there is a problem/bug with the zone and they need a place to spit you out at. But the question remains, why would they print a loc on the walls? It makes it seem all mysterious(or maybe it was put there for just that reason, to make people wonder what the hell it is). Or possibly some reference for GMs in the zone.

A somewhat similar bug I literally fell upon was in FM at the bottom of the cave in the giant fort, theres a rock you can fall off of at the bottom. If you don't have Levi you will fall for 20k onto the open plain below, but with levi you can go down there and run around, theres no way out and nothing down there except a flat field of grass the size of the zone.
