[Fri Oct 28 12:22:32 2022] You say, 'Hail, King Tormax'
[Fri Oct 28 12:22:32 2022] King Tormax says, 'Greetings, Jamesonx. You know who I am, but I only vaguely know of you. My purpose is simple, I will rule these lands like my father, and my grandfather before him. All tasks but two are inconsequential to me.'

[Fri Oct 28 12:22:41 2022] You say, 'what two tasks?'
[Fri Oct 28 12:22:41 2022] King Tormax says, 'The tasks are simple, Human. I wish the death of the other 'powers' of this frozen waste land. If you are able to destroy either of my mortal foes, bring me proof of your exploits and you will be known as the hero of Kael Drakkel.'

[Fri Oct 28 12:22:45 2022] You say, 'powers'
[Fri Oct 28 12:22:45 2022] King Tormax laughs deeply, 'I speak of the foolish old dragon Yelinak and that pitiful Dain Frostreaver.'

[Fri Oct 28 12:23:08 2022] You say, 'lord yelinak'
[Fri Oct 28 12:23:09 2022] King Tormax says, 'Yelinak's mate was slain by my ancestor Porlos single-handedly. Since that time, the great beast has stalked my line. Unable to slay any of us...'

[Fri Oct 28 12:23:18 2022] You say, 'dain'
[Fri Oct 28 12:23:18 2022] King Tormax says, 'Dain Frostreaver is the leader of the disgusting Coldain. Some day they will be cleansed from this holy land.'

His max hit is 849 not 600. He also rampages.

The max hit will be different with MOTM or without it. On Live, I'm guessing he does hit for 600. On TLPs with MOTM, I have seen a max hit of 863 -- perhaps you had some items with shielding on?

I was lucky enough to get King Tormax a few hours before the patch. After the patch, I checked several times and he was not up. the last check I got a tell before I gated out and he popped in front of me. 2 days 17 hours 45 minutes after patch. It just so happens it was 3 days 12 hours after the last kill. So I think this guy does not have his spawn timer interrupted by a patch.

There are few spawns that are perma-camped on Zek, and th%s and AoW are certainly one of of them... I had the near impossible chance to glimpse this elusive mob Once! Was a sight of true celebration, surely. Got a HoS and some other drops % forget. Honestly, those of you hellbent on ravashing specific, high-end geared, and money-intensive mobs,
Please,
Save a chance for others you pigs

King Tormax last kill for me: 463,042 hp

on top of that, i killed him on 9/6 at 5 am. then i missed next spawn and got him again on 9/16 at 6 am. so it sure seems like a 5 day spawn cycle on KT to me. I was always told 6-7.

Edited, Sep 16th 2012 11:23am by Shuraz

Fooled myself. the time between 9/6 and 9/16 is also perfect for 3 day spawn cycle. Turns out thats what it is. I got KT on 9/26 at 5:30 am then again on 9/29 at 2:45 pm.

Edited, Sep 29th 2012 4:32pm by Shuraz

killed on 6/5 at 3:53:18 pm, then killed on 6/8 at 2:41:09 pm. that's LESS than 3 days by a fair margin. its 2 days 10 hours 47 minutes 51 seconds. KT was not up 10 mins before that time. I had checked, then moved on and came back. So I don't know what the timer is, but its not 3 days plus something.

Edited, Jun 8th 2013 3:06pm by Shuraz

another edit. killed KT on 7/29 at 16:37. came back a few times on the 31st but wasn't up. next morning checked at 4:30 and was not up. went afk a few mins, came back at 4:38 and he was up. so 3 days 11 hours and approx. 55 minutes this time.

Edited, Aug 2nd 2013 4:46am by Shuraz

another edit. [Mon Aug 12 12:18:31 2013] You have slain King Tormax! yet at [Fri Aug 16 00:23:35 2013] Earth Time: Friday, August 16, 2013 00:23:35 - he was not up. that's 3 days 12 hours 5 minutes and 4 seconds later. I could not stay awake any longer. the next morning he was up. so spawn timer was over the magical 3d12h mark.[Fri Aug 16 05:26:53 2013] You have slain King Tormax! . don't know how much past, but at least 5 minutes

75 Monk, 450AAs, + Cleric merc = Auto attack and afk for 25 minutes while you whittle his health down.

Doable, but make sure you clear out all the adds in the room first, and then focus on his two buddies before you take him down.

I pretty much took on the whole room at once, minus Tormax b/c he wasn't up. I did this with an 85 RNG 24k HP & 3kAC buffed, 2.0 and Feral Igneous Chopper. Damage shield,Barrage of arrows, and summers dew helped me burn down the crowd.

Think I'd still need a cleric to take down Tmax himself though, I only do about 880 DPS average, 1111 when Ive stacked 2.0, Auspice, and Outriders. With average damage that would be an 11:21 fight (assuming 600k hps). Can't wait to try him on for size.

Could an 82 ranger (Crystallos gear) with a cleric mercenary reasonably take on Tormax and his guards at the same time? Or is it really better to try to separate them?

Should be an easy duo! I was able to solo the room as an 80 cleric. I had ward to take down all the other mobs...so I would focus on the rest before dropping TMax. Shouldn't be a problem though...

Good luck
NOT slowable
# Sep 14 2008 at 1:53 PM Rating: Good
"Target is immune to changes in its attack speed."

Tormax is definitely NOT slowable anymore. He used to be I believe. That question mark in the description should be removed.

I am an 80 shaman. He cannot be slowed.

Soloed as an 80 beastlord today. LONG fight. As a note he is NOT slowable, contrary to the info posted above. I recieved the "This target is immune to changes in its run speed" message when I tried.

Being immune to changes in run speed have nothing to do with if a mob is slowable or not. Run speed messages like that mean you can not snare/root a mob.

Took out KT w/ 75 Druid & 75 Pally demi+ geared. Was an easy fight. However just posting to let you know I stumbled upon an interesting pull. First kill the side mobs on either side (not the guards), kill all in hallway behind KT but leave one. Now snare pull the 1 mob that is in the back room behind KT and run back to the top area in front of KT out of aggro range. The snared mob will path back to you and aggro KT along the way BUT his 2 guards will stay put. Interesting enough I have tested this method on 2 seperate occasions and has worked both times be it luck or method. Anyhow hope this helps anyone on the KT pull.
P.S. Bugger dropped talisman and 3 no trade Axes lol so we got screwed on the loot. =/

In Kael Drakkal as always. He hasn't moved from his throne in years. But if you don't know where the throne room is, its the opposite direction of the arena.

Just soloed him right in his room, 17k/3.67self-buffed pal(with 2hs). Went down to 60m before killing his guards, but regen back up to fm when he's killed.
Plain easy for pals :P

Trio'd by a 75 warrior(19.6k/3400AC buffed) 75 bard and 75 druid twice in the last 3 or 4 days. Dropped the head, ST key both times, last night dropped the crown and 2 ears.

Wow, I remember being in a guild sending 30 people to kill Vindi, and often wiping. Now I can duo him. The game just isn't same :-(

Must be why I was able to find him up, peeps just aren't killing him anymore. AOW still gets downed on respawn however
Ranger Soloed
# Jun 18 2006 at 2:55 PM Rating: Decent
Considering that he has been soloed by a Ranger I could definatly see a high end beastlord having a good chance against him.

Where and when did a ranger claim to solo him?
Links?

How did he get KT single?

I can believe they have the dps to whittle him down, but the ac and self healing to last?

With current gear and all, I can totally believe a lot of classes soloing him.

But, how are they clearing the room solo? and before repops?

The call mechanic is pretty easy to suss :) probably am the cleric mentioned, although I bet its doable now with the whole room on me. I'll PM you how on evilgamer Okami.

King Tormax is easy to get solo... The thing is that he runs faster than his guards so pull him to zone in and zone out and have ur group tag him. if u plan to solo him, should prolly pull him to EW zone line since it is farther and gives him a chance to ditch his guards. Only lowbie giants in the way that wont aggro when you pull him as he paths back to his throne

I didn't know he outran his guards actually. Tried it lastnight.
Ran him to ew zone line and fd'd, then yoyo'd him for a bit so his guards got a big run back to their spawn, then fd'd to clear them.

single pull easy
# Apr 26 2006 at 12:06 AM Rating: Decent
70 beast can easily get KT single all he has to do is pet pull the guards away from KT and kill guards then pull KT. Did that earlier today and killed him. Not sure if a 70bst could solo him because we had a 16k bst fully raid buffed tanking him and i had to Cheal him 10times during the fight although we didnt slow KT not sure if he can be slowed.
