Just as others posted, I cleared and cleared level 6a and b. VahlSera did not spawn until one of the shades popped with a pet. No white on the sleeves, just like earlier posters said. As soon as I dropped the shade, I headed for the spawn point in 6b, and there was VahlSera.

Runs at low hp and has a decent amount of HP. For me he was at at the entrance of the big room on the Northwest side of the 6th floor. I am not sure of the PH since he was already up when I arrived. Added new screenshot.

Ice Shade with pet

I can confirm that the shade with the pet triggers the spawn, cleared the floor on both sides of mirror three times and he didn't spawn until I killed that specific shade.
Still cannot be reached.

Not all mirrors require a key. Once you've dealt with all those icy shades and the drolvarg model guards, click on through and to get to the watery area with VhalSera...

Update: Yes the mob was spawned inside the wall unaccessible so kind GM spawned him in the right place, also any ice shade can be a ph as it popped everywhere
Spawn trigger??

an enraged vampire spawns after EVERY shrouded bat. This guy does not spawn after every vampire you kill... I was on my first clearing of the floor when I found him in the water room. Also Lucid spirit of Abrams spawned after I killed Incoherent spirit. Maybe that is the trigger? Can't be for sure since they both spawned on my first trip to this floor.

you DO need a key from him to get to the 7th floor. the floor he is describing is 6b-- on the map it is called g. g is 6b, h is 7 and you can hit that little red globe on 6b all you want but you won't get to the top floor without this key.

fought for hours before I realized that you dont need the key on the floor he supposedly has the key to get off of. Fought from the beginning of the zone to the 6th floor before I realized it, just click the mirrior to the next flor when you get to the floor with a horde of shades and the drolvargs. good luck guys.

I have spawned this guy about 10 times now, but I track him with my druid and he tracks behind the entrance from previous floor. Am I missing some secret passage or something?

I cleared the level 1 and a half times and saw that he was up on tracker. Did not notice what spawned him unfortunately, but I didn't fight any "old model shades" with a pet. Just the regular shades.

I cleared the entire level, he did not pop, waiting on respawns now.

I confirmed tonight that the way to spawn him is to kill the old model shade with the skelly pet in the lower part of the sixth floor. This caused him to spawn immediately in the upper part of floor six. Clearing just the upper part of floor six would not spawn him.

Took him out a couple nights ago with a 48 SK, 49 cleric, 49 bard. Tough fight. He's a necro, threw lots of Boil Blood, Darkness, and occasional Infectious Cloud, Root, or Asystole. But he also has a couple special spells: Vampire Charm (insta-cast) and Magi Curse (spin-stun plus hp/mana dot). Note that Magi Curse isn't really a curse (remove curse won't work on it), and is listed as being unresistable, which I can believe given how often it hit us.

I hope we learned enough from that fight to take on Tserrina next week!

Me as tank 53 Ranger (Virtue, KEI, Storm Strength) and 62 Cleric on Heals (and blasts and oodles of clericy stuff). Cleric had problems with the big bugger before just needed someone to hit the sod.

I found that I couldn't land a hit until I had hit him with a Fire Spell, through out the battle blindness was used a lot and once he got a charm on me (which knocked my WALK on for some reason). The 2nd time he was surronded by two/three bats dropped same loot

(Large Key,VhalSera Earring, Crystalised Shadows)

With the Cleric on Heals there was not much bother as he conned Dark Blue to me, he is just a tricky sod.

He was up when i got here, so no neeed to spawn. Piece o cake as a 57 Necro, Has a good amount of hp tho

Ok, I found out how to spawn this guy.

This is how I did it.

I ported up into 6b and killed the bat in the room, then an enraged vampire spawned after its death. After I killed the enraged vampire, I went into the upper room of 6b and there was VhalSera. You might be able to kill random mobs. I did not kill all of the mobs in 6a.

Spawning ValSera

I read up on him here in the beastiary and it was usefull information.
I started out by fighting my way up to 6b, then I killed bats to clear the watery area. Once all the bats/vampires were down and the Shadowed Necro was down I went back to 6a and looked for the Icy Shadow that had a pet and black cuffs (all the others have a white cuff at the end of their sleeves). Killed Icy Shadow, ran back up to 6b (had to kill some more Shadowbeast Guards along the way) and found ValSera standing in the water waiting for me. Killed ValSera with 61 War + 52 Shm and viola! Got key for lvl 7 and the section of draconic tome. Pretty easy it seems.
As for why others were unlucky/unable to spawn him...I cannot say. I speculate that it was somthing buggy with the game.
Hope that helps.
Spawning ValSera

Absolutly spot on instructions. I tried killing everything yesterday and couldnt get a spawn. Today I followed your instructions and just like you said..an ice shade with no white in cuffs(new model shade) spawned. When he went down Val spawned and it was not a coincidence because nothing else on 6b had respawned.
RE: Spawning ValSera
# Apr 26 2005 at 4:42 AM Rating: Default
Yes, it might have been a bug that was fixed. I have successfully spawned him twice today without any problems.

As for killing him, that's another story.
50 necro, best attempt so far: gates at 15%.
need: more mana, MR for pet :)

Well I hope that someone can give some advice or help. Over the weekend I killed the supposed PH on 6A (Ice Shade with pet and no white on sleeves) 3 times... ran to 6B looking for this guy and NO luck?!?! What might I be doing wrong? Is this now bugged? Please help...
RE: easy dude
# Jan 01 2005 at 7:26 PM Rating: Decent
Sorry, no advice here. I am in the same boat you are.

- Cleared 6a, and 6b over 20 times and no VhalSera.

- Killed the "old world" looking Ice Shade with pet about 30 times.

- Tried killing Ice Shade & pet with 6b clear and full spawn with no help.

Thinking he is ultra rare spawn or bugged?

Really weird/lucky thing happened when i fought this guy. I was soloing through the tower, tryin to eventually get to tserrina and trying to solo her (im a 65 bard). Anyway, i kill the shade, this guy pops, and i go on up to get him. I harmo the bat on the portin to 6b (mistake number one), and then grabbed Sera, who was right up the stairs. I came down, i guess i got too close to the bat, and it reagroed. I decided to kill the bat first, just cause it had significantly less hps but was still doing the same amount of dmg as sera (i had had resist song on, so his spells were doing little to nothing). I eventually kill the bat, and then the enraged vampire spawns. I try to kill the vampire, but realize im only at around 20% health; mezzed the vamp, prayed and tried to mez sera. Obviously it didnt work so i figured im screwed. I get to 10%, and by this time ive come to face my fate, im already planning the CR. Suddenly, sera's charm lands on me, and i start to regen at unagrod npc speed, or maybe sera himself was healing me since i was his pet...reagardless, I get up to around 25% hp, and charm breaks 10ish seconds later. Sera had gone underwater around the edge of the port-in area; i was expecting him to attack me again once charm had broken, but for some weird reason, he didnt, maybe cause he was underwater? Anyway, I mezzed the vampire again, healed up, and killed it. Healed up the rest of the way, then found sera still underwater, slowed him, and it was on. I killed him easily with no adds, resist song made it cake; he dropped the earring and the key, and i was one happy, and surprisingly alive bard...guess i'll try for tserrina tomorrow. Crazy day.
# Nov 25 2003 at 12:42 PM Rating: Decent
Im curious to know how this guy spawns. Do i have to kill PH on 6a? What and where is PH? I know Sera pops on 6b but havent figured out how to pop him. Ive cleared 6a and then cleard 6b and waited and waited and waited, never popped in like over 7 hours.... Any help here would be appreciated...

he spawns after the ice shade with the skeleton pet is killed. he looks different fomr other ice shades he has no white line around the arms on his cloak. hes not musch harder than the otehr ice shaded. my advice is to run between the 2 rooms with ice shades and kill them as they spawn till the one wiht the pet spawns after u kill it sera spawns on the bridge in his little chamber room thing within 30sec of its death. hope that helps
