Can be soloed at level 66

Soloed with a level 66 monk (1100AA, full defiant gear) with a cleric merc (Tier 5). Overall an extremely close and balanced fight. The cleric's mana pool drained dry a few times and hovered near zero as all defensive monk discs and abilities were used near the end of the fight.

First clear the area south of the ice wall, then use the ice wall as a barrier to split and kill the Temple Guardians. The Temple Guardians seem to run faster and are less confused about pathing than Derakor the Vindicator.

700 max hit? I don't think so...

Derakor the Vindicator hits YOU for 1013 points of damage.

His max hit on TLPs according to GamParse is 1050.

Yes, and a well-geared one (full HoT gear, AoW gear, etc). He hits over 1k and very frequently (on Rizlona/Aradune at least).

he was wandering the walkway when I ran into him at /loc: 2071, 1385, -36. He had two adds (social... "a temple guardian" i believe) with him and was doing his /say outbursts so I knew he was around before I ran into him.

faction hits:

Kromzek -100
Kromrif -25
King Tormax -25

Claws of Veeshan +50

In case any progression guilds are still doing him:

Anima on Test raided him last night. He spawns behind a clear crystal wall behind the arena. To spawn him you need to kill a PH, which is rumored to be a guardian of zek. We just took down everything nearby the arena and then saw him strolling around behind the wall.

He will path up and down a walkway directly behind this "crystal wall" with a couple guardians with him. We pulled him when he was closest to the wall, and then pinned in a nearby corner which avoided any additional adds. We had the MT on Vindi and offtanked / burned down the adds then everyone joined in on Vindi.

I will have to check the parse and edit, but he seemed around 200K HP.

Happy Hunting.

He does not have a placeholder. It was coincidence that he spawned when you were killing various mobs.
Fun :)

70 Ogre Warrior with 320 AA, couldnt do it with a cleric merc. Although merc was at 30% mana when he popped right atop me in the hidden passage way at the back.

78 SK ...Statue wru?

78 SK and I have been soloing this guy his last four or so spawns on Bertox. I can never find a statue of rallos zek before or afterward. I am pretty confident I know its spawn location. Killing Vindi doesn't seem to do anything other than well, make Vindi dead. Am I doing something wrong, or does his death NOT spawn the statue? I've heard it does and does not.

Regardless, pretty nice being able to solo this guy after he kicked my butt several times on raids when I was a wee little knight of darkness wet behind the ears.

Killing Vindi does absolutely nothing to spawn Statue. Totally unrelated.

Got him to 35% before cleric merc ran out of mana and I died just now. Never raided Kael so this was my first encounter with any of the "raid" mobs. Didn't know that he spawned 2 temple guardians right at the start so that kind of caught me off guard. Killed them both then went back to Vindy. He wasn't taking me down too quick but my DPS isn't the greatest so it took me a couple minutes to kill the two guardians so cleric was already down some mana by the time I started on Vindicator. Cleric merc went OOM when Vindy was at about 40% and I got him to 35ish % before I died. With merc/self buffs Monk is about 14khp 2.4k AC with almost 200AA. CA/CS is 6/5

To be accurate, Vindi does not spawn the two temple guards, they just come rushing when Vindi is aggroed. If the two guards are already killed before Vindi is aggroed, they will not respawn upon the aggro. The guards are on either side of the building that Vindi spawns in front of, right behind either door. If Vindi is not up you can keep him solo by killing the guards as soon as they spawn/respawn, unless you are very unlucky with the timing. If you clear the statue room or the area right before it where the guards spawn, it is possible to pull the guards without agroing Vindi, especially if he is walking near the opposite side of his walkway.

((I'm sure its on here somewhere but just fyi had around 180,000 hp's today)) did about 300dps to me (cleric w/ 3kac and 40+ combat aa's)
# Dec 31 2008 at 3:25 PM Rating: Decent
Downed by a 75 cleric, 300 aa, 14k HP 12k Mana 2.3k AC Buffed.
Took him and his 2 guards at the same time, guards ended up dying to Ward.
Ward/VoV FTW.

I have also killed Vindi solo on a 76 Shammy, 1133 aa, 16k HP 14k Mana 2.6k AC Buffed.
Also tanked the 2 guards, just panther and lassitude with pet out.

Grats to my level 1 warrior Naggy/Vox killer on chestplate.

You probably just had enough dps and got lucky, he definately Rampages from the start.
# Feb 03 2008 at 7:51 PM Rating: Decent
Got him tonight. 80 bst, 617 aa's, demi geared, with self buffs. Had pet tank it while I dealt with the 2 guards. Kept using promised mending 2 and focused paragon on myself. After guards were down, I'd go in, hit def disc, fight him til disc wore off, then back up and heal myself and pet til disc repopped. Rinsed and repeated several times, took about 15 minutes. Ended up with about 15m when he died. Parsed him at 290k hp's.

Killed Vindi today, solo (although raid buffed): 21500 HP, 2867 AC Monk with Brumals Fists of Whirling Sleet and "Epic 2.5" and suitable +dmg augs. Naturally I have Block V (but no Block mod) and way over cap on Avoidance and Accuracy.

Just aggroed him and his two guards. Killed one guard, FD, regain HP etc. Killed the other guard, FD, regain HP etc.

Pulled Vindi. Started with Riposte disc which didnt really do much, since vindi hardly managed to land a hit. Clicked epic for a quick 5K heal when it was needed, used Innerflame, used Heal over Time potion when it was needed, used Heel of Kanji and soon enough Vindi lay slain before me. Didnt need to use Scaledfists disc, nor did I need to use Mend.

Funny to see "this is a raid encounter"-mobs die so easily. Old world ftw. :)

We've been killing Vindi regularly to try and key all our toons for ST. In the five times we've killed him the Talisman has dropped once. This may be a fairly rare drop off of Vindi.

The head and heart always drop.
The Breastplate has dropped 3 times.
The earring once.

I love the old school mobs.

Just downed him 10 minutes ago 3boxing.

75 Warrior - 700 aa's - 18k hp 3200 ac with Tenacity
70 Rogue - 250 aa's - 10k hp 2000 ac with Conviction
67 Cleric - 105 aa's - 6500 mana pool (Which didn't matter)

Anyways, I ignored Vindi's 2 guards and just downed him asap since the guards are weak, rogue took ramp like it was nothing. My rogue used 2 HoT pots during the fight from ramp. Cleric only CHed maybe 7-8 times. Vindi died within 4-5 minutes after I burned discs the whole time. Cleric ended with 85m, was watching tv and blew a couple fast heals on the rogue not paying attention to ramp otherwise I might have ended with Full mana.

Fight was a lot easier then I thought, HoT potions weren't neccessary on the rogue, could have just had cleric HoT him. Hardest hit was 400ish on the warrior.

Got the boots on a twink alt sk =]

Velk-King T-Vindi pwned way to easily now...
# Dec 24 2006 at 10:13 AM Rating: Default
I just did Velk, King T and Vindi within an hour 3boxing 70 Ranger, 70 Shaman, 61 cleric. All had Aego, Shaman Line, and Ranger line. took me about 3-5minutes for each fight, Sadly I can say they are quite easy. Max Hit from Velk was only 257, Vindi I got hit for 789 once, but most were below 300, and King T Max I was hit for was 498. Ranger who was Tank for Velk & Vindi sits at 11.3k hp, 1989 ac, 2459 atk. with thoughs buffs.
Shaman Had 10.4khp, 1895ac, 9798mana. & Cleric who was just basicly an innocent bystander only has 6.9kmana 8khp with thoughs buffs. for Velk I just did the normal kill mobs in near by areas, charge him and his guards and slaughter. (Could'nt land spells unless right under him) Must be belly caster like dragons) Vindi, I cleared the Giants near WL Zoneline then went and hit vindi with Immolate and headed for WL zoneline, when I got close I turn around and snared Vindi zoned out, zoned back in guards gone, Vindi still hanging out. Landed Balance of Discord with shaman 3rd cast. Killed him, very easy kill. Now, King T he was a different story. I had to pet pull him away from his guards, he would'nt stay at zone line for me. after pet pulled, I decided to tank with the Shaman and click TS with ranger + Shaman's 1.5 + Auspice and Ferine Avatar = Make me kill alot faster. Over all, these all raid mobs are not doing to well. I think we need a revamp. I just called for the people in zones for all loot, except for the ST Keys which are what I was after and got 3 of, I had key on Ranger, and Gave the 3rd to my cousin's bard in which I was keying for as so she could go get a dwarf mask. Good Luck to anyone looking for a challenge, I'm off to find a real one.

First, Vindicator is immune to runspeed changes, so you didn't snare him and zone out. Second, even if you had manged to train Vindi and his two temple guards to the zoneline, the guards don't leave his side so you wouldn't have found them 'gone' as you claim. Further, your claim to "solo" Tormax and require nothing more than a single heal potion is just bullsh*t. My favorite part of your mass of lies is how you 'got a couple upgrades' in five days time that raised your HPs by 2000 and your AC up over 500 points ~ lmao

I'm sure you impress yourself with these types of posts, and thats all that counts, right ?

K, last I checked, Vindi is immune to changes in runspeed and according to some posts below, immune to slow. Maybe this is just on the BB server or they nerfed that lately?
I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you thought you heard was not what I meant.
