I have been trying to get Cara to spawn for two days. I read that she spawned in blood pool room on the third floor, but this seems to be incorrect, at least on the Firiona Vie server. It's possible that it's different on Progression servers. I went to fourth floor and found her Boyfriend, Amontehepna. After killing him I made a dash for the main crypt room in the center of 4th floor. She was waiting for me. Spinned me right round, baby right round like a record... That stun of hers is nasty, But my pet took her out while I was spinning. She dropped the Embalmers Skinning Knife which I wanted for my warrior to have endless free bangages.
It's number 7 on this map that I'm linking.

I killed Cara and left a character at her spawn point, about 10 mins later I killed Amontehepna, and Cara respawned the instant he died. 2/2021 on test server

It may very well be that Cara and Amontehepna are independent, but I had to kill Cara twice due to losing the first spawn to a big damage shield. Both Caras were up after Amontehepna kills. The second, I saw Cara buffing herself spam immediately upon killing Amontehepna. Maybe it was just coincidence.

This mob and Amontehepna both chain cast spin stun. Does not appear to be resistible in PoTime PoP era gear.

The spell is Magi Curse (added above in the mob information) and it indeed cannot be resisted at all.

Spawns in big crypt after killing Amontehepna. Killed her on second try molo'ing with a 47 Warrior. First time the other two named on this floor spawned right next to me along with a bunch of little mobs. Second time when I killed her I pulled her into hall to fight her.

8+ clears of the floor for me. Started at Cara's spawn, she was not up. Killed Amontehepna in the hall south of Cara's spawn (first time I had seen this mob in all my clears). Ran back and Cara was spawned.
Lucky me

How do you kill her?

I am thinking maybe I need to alternate a stun with Banish Undead to take her down to prevent her from casting her whirl and heal spells.

I buffed up my disease and magic resists on this floor because of mummies and shadows and THOUGHT the magic resist might help against Cara, but her spin stun is unresistable, so you could be level 85 and still get spun while she takes you down. How the heck are you supposed to get the key?

Who has solo'd her as a cleric and how did you do it?

In my experience trying to solo her (not as a cleric but with a druid and then with an enchanter) you have to rely on a combination of pets, damage shield (in cleric case this would include reverse DS) and ONLY fast casting spells if you are trying to cast at all.

The Magi Curse is unresistable but you are not stuck spinning the entire time, the DoT/mana-drain component lasts longer than the stun portion. As mentioned, you can stop the spinning by sitting but you are still stunned and unable to cast until the spin-stun portion of the effect wears off. Although the Magi Curse is unresistable, the spin-stun can be resisted, if you have Stun Resist AA or gear equipped you will occasionally see the message that you shake off the stun effect. She does recast it over and over again though, which is why you are kept spinning on a spit while she carves you up with one or both of her daggers.

The biggest nukes always have the longest casting times, but many DoTs and stuns are short enough casting time (especially with focus and buffs) that you can squeeze one off each time between spin-stuns. For healing, likewise don't try to rely on any spell that takes longer than 3 seconds to cast. Your casting DPS should come from DoTs (undead mob here should be perfect for cleric DoTs), the more the merrier, stack 'em on, one each time you can cast. Pet dps (hammer, shiny bob, whatever) will be able to chip away at her while you hold her attention. On top of that you can try to stack as many forms of DS as you can. Druid get some nice AA, enchanter are limited to fire elemental form and 11 point feedback buff, cleric can use spell line Mark of Kings (low casting time) and everyone can use skinspikes potions.

At some point when she is low on hp she will likely stop chain stunning you and heal herself. At this point you could try to burn her down or use the break to heal yourself or prepare for the renewed assault when she goes back on the attack. With lvl 65 characters it can be close, sometimes only winning with the aid of a Steadfast Servant or the use of Staunch Recovery.

It took forever to get this witch to spawn. I killed her once and keyed my warrior, then had to figure out how to spawn her again to key my cleric.

I spent a long time clearing the floor several times. I killed Narmak Berekka and the maggot infested flesh several times in order to get Amontehepna to spawn so I could repop Cara Omica.

Random placing for the other names, but Cara spawns at the same spot.

The wretch dropped a Sorcerous Bowl.

Have soloed her easy 3 times tonight. First time there was a bat in the room, not sure why... After the fight with Cara I killed the bat, vampire came out killed him too... then Cara respawned again hehe. So I got 2 embalming daggers. After I got done beating the crap out of Tserrina and puking from all of the spinning, I decided to chec k out cara again. She dropped a bowl finally, so my mage gets to have fun. Moral of this story? She is pathetic.

Just key your way up and camp Tserrina to solo if you want something fun to do while you're nice to hook friends up with master TOFS key at low levels :-)

Boxing my 63 pally with my 37 shammy on the 4th floor.I hear Cara casting.Havn't really explored the 4th floor so i started running around looking for her with my pally.Then i start hearing Amontehepna start casting too.To make a long story short i found Amon first so killed him.Took 5 minutes more to find Cara,killed her.Wanted to see if there were mobs on the way to the 5th floor,there is 4 shadows.Kill them and figured i would just run back to where shammy is parked and kill whatever follows there.Get to shammy,down by the entrance,turn around and theres Cara again looking at me.She must have spawned within 5 minutes of each other.I guess it is possible that someone came earlier and killed Amon then left before Cara spawned.Then Amon repoped and i killed him and spawned Cara again.Only thing I can think of to explain it.

63 Paladin

Easy kill for a 63 pally.

During this Firiona event, she cons red at 70, has a 1999 dmg AE, and hits for 1600 and took about 35 seconds to kill with a raid force of 35.

Not quite the mob she once was haha.

As for getting Cara Omica to spawn, she's not a random pop, and she's not on a timer - unless Amontehepna is, because the way to get Cara to spawn is by killing Amontehepna. I play on a low-population server, and was the only person in ToFS (62 NEC, 25AAs) when I got my key to level 5. Cara wasn't up, and I crawled all around level 4 find Amontehepna. Eventually stumbled into him, and the next line after "Gabekn has slain Amontehepna!" was "Cara Omica begins to cast a spell." All I had to do was crawl my way back around to her room, and then I had my key and the bowl (you can see it in her hand when she's carrying it). I know she's undead because I a cast shackle of spirit on her. She also has more than the 3K hp I saw mentioned somewhere because I Neurotoxined her for the full 1270, and it took her down less than a quarter of her HP. She also can completely heal herself.

Above post says she will not spawn if peopl eare in the room. Not true, unless they changed it. We had a group in there and she spawned 3 or 4 times in about an hour for us.

think a 51pally buffed to the rim could solo her?

Yes. I soloed her with my pally at 49. Easy easy fight.

No, this is not an easy fight. For the first 2 minutes all she does is chain-cast her whirl spell. It stuns you for about 10 seconds, does damage, and drains your mana. Very rarely, you might have a chance to bash her, which may allow for one spell, like a quick stun, but not much else. If you try to root her and move away, she'll still cast it on you from a distance since it's a spell, not a melee proc. It cannot be resisted. She C-H-A-I-N casts this, over and over, sometimes before the last one wears off.

After about two minutes, if you are still alive, she will go melee on you. By this time you have zero mana, so all you can do is melee back. She has few hitpoints - BUT SHE ALSO HEALS.. like quick may bash-interrupt one, but she just chain casts heals until she gets above 50%. She'll also throw in a spin or two, but much less often.

My decently geared 56 pally b.a.r.e.l.y killed her. I got off a DA early in the fight and I think the 16 seconds of her wasting mana was the key. Had to LoH at 5% in between spin chains. When I ran out of mana, she went melee mode on me, which was a bad idea on her part. My sword was dissolving her health real quick. I'd get her down fast but she'd just start chain-healing to 50% every time. Eventually I swung triple and procc'ed Nife to blast her under 20%. She did not attempt after going under 20%. Finished her off real quick when her casting stopped.

This is probably an easy kill for a pet class, or at least a decent duo. She'll effectively take one person out of the fight, but if another can get in there and beat on her, her health goes down fast. It appears she stops spinning when she has to start healing herself, or maybe that's how it seemed in my case. Doubt a 51 pally in a timelocked server could solo her. Definitely doable on a normal server with defiant+ gear.

went here with grp of mid 40 ish fun zone to many no drops here in my opion but cara spwaned 3 times in a row after 10 to 20 sec in between each one the bowl and dirk droped very nice items

well i m used to pass trough TOFS to kill the nameds who are up for money loot .
and what i can say about cara omina is i never camped this mob ,BUT it appears that if ,like i read on the posts ,it spawns if u kill the mummies which hang around on that floor etc etc etc ,this mob spawns alone too ,without doing anything ,it has a spawn timer too ,when i pass trough the tower ( i m often alone in the zone ) ,cara is sitting in his lile room waiting for me .... it spawns like every 5 or 6 hours ,but i m not really sure ,only thing i can say ,is it takes hours for it to repop and my advise is if u wanna kill it ,well just pass 3 or 4 times /day ,it ll be up at least 2 times on the 4 (if nobody killed it sure )
this mob has about 5 k hp ,i use 2 times my agnarr s thunder ( 2K 600 nuke )to kill it ,and after the first blast it has like 2 bubble hp left
mmm today happened something funny ,i wen tin the room ,i killed it and it respawned 10 sec after on me lol ,had the bowl at first kill and the dirk at second kill ... it well means that cara is on timer + on pop list if u kill other mobs on that floor

My main is a Monk, and I just have to say that is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. This weapon is a knife, in other words a peircing weapon. If you haven't noticed, Monks don't get peircing. So are you saying that they should make this knife Monk useable? That would be great, but how would you get it to proc considering you can't equip peircing weapons? Are you saying monks should be given peircing as a skill? lol, and maybe they can give us level 50 wizard nukes while they're at it.

Think about it, this is NOT a Monk item.

# Jun 20 2003 at 2:28 PM Rating: Decent
Monks cannot equip it, therefore it will NEVER proc bandages when USING it. Because they CANT use it.

My Sk, Rogue, Necro, and Chanter all have them from our times there. Note also> just as with the mage spell:SUMMON BANDAGES, the number summoned is based on your level> level 40 wielding it procs a stack every time it goes off. A level 18 wielding it will only get 9 bandages a proc.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: If you DONT put the bandages in your inventory, you wont get more until you do, so if you are looking to beat up greenies to get a few stacks, as soon as it procs, put em from your cursor into a bag so next proc, you will get another stack. Otherwise you will only get one stack per kill.
RE: /sigh
# Jun 22 2003 at 11:01 PM Rating: Decent
Actually you dont have to put them in your inventory right away. Just last week (Mid June 2003) I had 5 stacks on my cursor. It just overstacks them.

RE: /sigh
# Oct 03 2002 at 3:02 AM Rating: Decent
If you look around you can find lots of weapons that normally a class can't equip but can still use... On the down side you have to deal with 0 skill... Not like its a great weapon for dmg anyway.
RE: /sigh
# Sep 27 2002 at 11:08 AM Rating: Decent
Oh, and one more little thing, bandaids are incredibly useful for all the classes, not just Monks. All pure melee can use them when there isn't a healer around, soloing hybrids can use them to bind to half and then heal the rest with their spells to save on mana, and casters can use them incase they are oom on others or themselves. In other words, you're arguement is pointless. If you want bandaids and are too poor or whatever to afford a few gold a stack, ask some Mage to summon you some and a dimensional pocket.
