Aaryonar also triggers Vulak to spawn

Updated: To get Vulak`Aerr to spawn:
1) Make sure that Thylex of Veeshan is alive.
2a) If [Aaryonar AND Lady Mirenilla AND Lady Nevederia AND Lord Feshlak AND Lord Kreizenn AND Lord Vyemm] are already dead then wait for one of them to spawn.
2b) If [Aaryonar OR Lady Mirenilla OR Lady Nevederia OR Lord Feshlak OR Lord Kreizenn OR Lord Vyemm] is up then kill all that are up.
3) Upon the death of the last dragon, Vulak'Aerr spawns.
Note: Lord Koi`Doken does not matter and can be dead or alive.

This was updated with what appears to be previously undocumented information: Aaryonar also triggers Vulak'Aerr. This was tested and confirmed on a live server. Aaryonar is unique in that it will agro from across the zone and quickly chase down any character fighting many named Lords and Lady's in the north wing of the Temple of Veeshan. If you happen to start clearing the zone far and away from Aaryonar, you'll agro and kill Aaryonar anyway. In the confirmed test case today, all other Lady's and Lords were dead before Thylex of Veeshan spawned, then Thylex of Veeshan spawned and minutes later Aaryonar spawned. Killing Aaryonar alone with Thylex of Veeshan alive triggered Vulak'Aerr to spawn.

Last Vulak kill was around 1am Sunday. Thylex of Veeshan popped today Wednesday at 2pm, so it was just over 3 days + 13 hours.
He popped when all other named dragons were down so I had to wait another 10 mins~ for the first named to spawn.

I've been able to gather that Thylex is on a 3 day +1-12hour timer. Upon the last remaining NToV named dragon dying while Thylex is up, Vulak will spawn.

Good luck!

Loot Tables

Vulak is special in that he will ALWAYS drop exactly 4 items (and 2 spells), and what it interesting is that he will pick one item from each of four "loot tables". Meaning he will never drop duplicates of an item or two items from the same table in a single kill. These loot tables are based on data from approximately 210 Vulak kills on the Phinigel server across multiple different guilds drop reportings. Actual percentages of droprates may vary slightly, as RNG will be RNG.

Credit goes to Korillo of Phinigel for compiling this data.

Loot Table 1
Sal'Varae's Robe of Darkness (26.09%)
Crystasia's Crystal Ring (22.71%)
Kelsiferous' Armband of Artistry (14.01%)
Solist's Earring of Insight (17.87%)
Ssra's Bloodstone Eyepatch (19.32%)

Loot Table 2
Abashi's Rod of Disempowerment (6.28%)
Valtron's Necklace of Wonder (15.46%)
Vyrinn's Earring of Insanity (16.91%)
Mrylokar's Dagger of Vengeance (16.43%)
Feeliux's Cord of Velocity (18.84%)
Brother Xave's Headband (7.73%)
Jaelen's Katana (18.36%)

Loot Table 3
Gharn's Rock of Smashing (9.18%)
Do'Vassir's Gauntlets of Might (19.81%)
Palladius' Axe of Slaughter (15.94%)
Maclaer's Boots of Silence (19.32%)
Camii's Bracer of Vigor (23.67%)
Tolan's Longsword of the Glade (12.08%)

Loot Table 4
Akkikrus' Mask of Warfare (21.26%)
Hobart's War Helmet (13.53%)
Viik's Pauldrons of Pain (13.53%)
Yakatizma's Shield of Crafting (16.91%)
Sirran's Boots of Insanity (18.84%)
Rowyl's Metal Armguards (15.94%)

I've come here a few times and no named dragons up in the whole zone over the last 6 months so am I just missing them or what?

These are massively camped, Not "No Longer Spawning", you're just unlucky to find them up.

Best time to check for this is right after a server downage/patch. IIRC They spawn within 12 hours once the Servers are up. :)
You just GNOMED THAT!.

After almost 5 years from Temerity's first expeditions into the Temple of Veeshan, we decided to "check off" a long time foe that had eluded us and experience the long since removed (on the PC side) Ring event.

We started on an off night raid of dragon smiting, clearing all but 2 Lords and one Lady. Came back the next day and cleared the last 3...and while clearing to the bridge for the Ring, showed the newer people to the guild what happens when you allow a drake to gate. It was a lesson in following raid instructions, yeah...that's the ticket! So finally the raid gets to the bridge and starts the event...all while many others from various guilds are taking advantage of the clearing to make the wild run to the original zone in to Plane of Mischief. Alas, not far into the event we encountered positioning bugs which brought many adds to come play with us. Finally, on the 3rd attempt, we figured out the porper positioning and then....lost legit to being a tad slow on a splitter wave an 4 flurry drakes popped in to pay us a visit. We decided to come back a couple days later after discussing a new plan of attack.

We return, armed with a new strat to try to get through 3+ hours of mean Acid Jet filled fun! We start the event and the strat seems to be working perfectly! 16 waves later, we're staring down Vulak`Aerr for the first time ever on the server.

Interesting enough, the flurry drakes actually do more DPS than Krziik the Mighty in PoWater (for our warrior MT, Stamm, 590 DPS vs about 560 for KtM.

Do`Vassir's Gauntlets of Might
Sirran's Boots of Insanity
Solist's Earring of Insight
Valtron's Necklace of Wonder
Ancient: Greater Concussion
Ancient: Starfire of Ro

All in all, it was a fun break from the backflagging we have to do on Al'Kabor for the Elemental Planes (no 85% gimping in rule) and now that it's behind us, onward to toss Fennin Ro off his throne!

After years of waiting I was finally able to get Abashi's Rod of Disempowerment today!I love numbers so here are mine.85 Necro,all defensive AAs complete,3838 AC.

225 Lowest hit

1295 Highest hit

296 second fight,my pet and I did 3106.96 dps in that time.No poison spells would land so I ended up using fire and corruption.It took 7 kills over 2 years (he was never up and try to find a group to help with something like this) to get Abashi's.

Overall I am very happy,this was the last necro toy I had left to collect.I don't believe I could have done it at 80 without a merc,but who knows.

Vulak Info
# Nov 22 2008 at 7:40 AM Rating: Decent
Have killed vulak twice over the past 2 weeks fixing for a third as we speak. I know theres alot of people looking for accurate info. Both times have been done duo 80 monk / shaman. Very easy fight, spells land np and is slowable, no rampage and i dont think he even enrages. To spawn him ive just been waiting for thylex to pop then i kill what evers up for lords and ladies, neither time have i had to clear all the lords and ladies, just what ever was up, both times its been both ladies and one lord due to other people clearing prior. As for loot drops ill give a couple more kills and then ill repost.
Deaded it
# Nov 15 2008 at 3:36 AM Rating: Decent
Just killed him tonight with 81 monk and 71 mage and a cleric merc. was a long fight, used several heal pots, some vet aa's and every disc i could, had no LAA's however. dropped the robe, hobarts helm, Do'Vassirs Gaunts, Rogue dagger, ancient: starfire, ancient destruction of ice. was just a kill for fun, we CoTHed a few peeps for the loot. all in all, it was a great time, deffinately reminded me of the first huge raid and reminded me why i luv this game so much

Mob Info

Heh, funny how after all these years there is still no real reliable info on this guy.

Max Hit: 1400
HP Estimate: 800,000
Flurries: Yes
Rampages: No
Enrages: No
Slowable: Yes, fully, really easy too

As was said, Vulak is no longer a ring event. You now need to kill all the named dragons in the North wing, and if Thylex of of Veeshan is up, he will despawn and Vulak will spawn in the tower in the center of the wing. Interestingly, the three dragons at the far north end of the wing (Sevelak, Cekenar, Zlexak) are exempt from this rule and not required to be killed for Vulak to spawn, and Vulak will not summon them during the fight if they are still up. I guess only the dragons named Lord/Lady affect Vulak's spawning, though I never tested this myself with Jorlleag.

Luthair's 4 loot tables are either wrong, of very incomplete. I've seen multiple items from each of the tables he has listed drop simultaneously. Not sure how many Vulak kills I've done but it's definitely over 10.

Most of these dragons are now soloable at level 80, but with Vulak I needed a healer box because I had a crappy slow.

Very accurate information, just did him 80 ranger/80 cleric and he is indeed fully slowable with ranger 1.0.

And like you said, the triplets Sevelak, Cekenar, and Zlexak DO NOT NEED TO BE KILLED. Vulak WILL NOT summon them if they are left up. As for Jorlleag i'm not sure, we killed him anyway because he was right next to Lady Neve.

dropped cord, gaunts, shield and ring

Out of sixteen Vulak kills this is what I got:

Abashi's Rod of Disempowerment 1
Akkirus' Mask of Warfare 1
Brother Xave's Headband 2
Camii's Bracer of Vigor 0
Crystasia's Crystal Ring 5
Do`Vassir's Gauntlets of Might 3
Feeliux's Cord of Velocity 4
Gharn's Rock of Smashing 2
Hobart's War Helmet 3
Jaelen's Katana 1
Kelsiferous' Armband of Artistry 4
Maclaer's Boots of Silence 4
Mrylokar's Dagger of Vengeance 3
Palladius' Axe of Slaughter 2
Rowyl's Metal Armguards 4
Sal`Varae's Robe of Darkness 3
Sirran's Boots of Insanity 2
Solist's Earring of Insight 4
Ssra's Bloodstone Eyepatch 1
Tolan's Longsword of the Glade 5
Valtron's Necklace of Wonder 4
Viik's Pauldrons of Pain 2
Vyrinn's Earring of Insanity 1
Yakatizma's Shield of Crafting 3

Each kill always had four different equipable loot items as tallied above. He never dropped the same item equipable loot item twice on a single kill. In addition, he always had two ancient spells, which occasionally were the same spell.

This data reflects the 16 times I killed Vulak alone. I was in on many other Vulak kills with others, and didn't record the drops. This data is as accurate as early morning kills allows, (frequently 3 or 4 AM) but I think it is reasonably reliable. I don't see that there are slot one, slot two, slot three, and slot four items as suggested by Luthair below because I was careful to record the drops in order and sometimes those items in slot two on one occasion would be in slot three another time, and that applied to other slots also. Maybe I didn't understand his post, or his method of assigning items to slots.

What I would think everyone wants to know is: "How often does Vulak drop Abashi's Rod of Disempowerment?" I have seen it drop exactly four times. This is in about ? forty or fifty Vulak kills. I would estimate that based on the laws of probability as I understand them, he drops Abashi's about once in ten to twenty kills. Each Vulak kill is going to take record keeping, planning, strategy, and potentially repeat visits, or camping of spawns depending on your luck. If you are solo, expect to spend a minimum of ? four hours, probably more depending on how you do it and how long it takes you to figure out the situation in detail.

Edit: I didn't check on each kill, but I never saw a visible weapon equipped by Vulak, even when he dropped one. The only time I had a clue to what he was going to drop was once with Myroklar's Dagger of Vengenance, and I had the life tap showing on my long term buff bar durinig the fight. But I don't remember seenig that life tap all three times he dropped the dagger, just once.

Effects used
# Aug 07 2008 at 4:36 AM Rating: Decent

I parsed Vulak several times, and in one fight he had 129 casts. The break down was as follows.
Ancient Breath 11 casts
Call of the Zero 80 casts
Gift of Aerr (the remainder of the times so presumbably) 38 casts.

My recollection is that I almost always resisted Ancient Breath and Gift of Aerr. One or the other may have stuck once in a fight as his spell damage on me was some low number on the fights I remember the parses from. Call of the Zero is unresistable if I remember correctly. I certainly don't remember a resist message for Call of the Zero.

As I stated below, Vulak has about 850 K HP.

In the process of getting my necro her Abashi's Rod of Disempowerment, I killed Vulak 16 times. Most of those times it was with necro slowing with Willsapper, which lowered Vulak's DPS on me from roughly 165 dps to 125 dps (rough numbers based on my recollection of parses). I used self heals, pots, maxed regeneration with distillate of replenishment, necro pet, and necro heals (they do exist). The necro only did the slowing. She didn't try to add dps from spells, as casting a spell takes time and is distracting. Also I didn't want her getting aggro. My DPS was kind of sucky, which resulted from Call of the Zero spell causing interrupts and not being able to see my target, need to self heal, supervising the necro, and checking /who and track for potential KSers.. This is clearly not soloing. The necro herself added a whopping 15 or so DPS the one time I parsed her while using her Willsapper. These fights got to be real yawners after a few kills.

But once I did do a pure solo with the exception of group leadership points, and a campfire for added ATK. I used my epic 1.0 for slows, and the tash stick from Sebilis to make it stick (maybe I didn't need the tash stick). That was one tough fight. I used all my discs and aa spells including weapon shield in order get some self healing in.

The ranger was level 80, self buffed about 27 k hp and 4600 AC, and all SOF raid geared.

In reguards to ring event.
# Jul 04 2007 at 12:46 AM Rating: Decent
I know some where wondering if he is still a ring event, and I can't really be sure since I've only done him recently I have nothing to compare it to.

We just cleared all the lords and ladies of NToV and he spawned. Did him and the rest of the zone with 4 people. 72 cleric, 75 warrior, 75 bard, 75 wizard. Warrior, bard, and cleric are all of 300-500 AA and Anguish gear. Cleric has like 30 AAs and TSS tier 1 gear, etc.

Whole clear took like 4 hours for us, but we move pretty slow. Vulk himself took us like 20-22 minutes.

Not a ring event. Previously, you got waves of mobs and he popped at the end. Now he pops when you clear all the other named in ntov.

He doesn't spawn until all of the Lords and Ladies in North wing have been killed. He dropped the same thing for us twice in a row, and hoping his loot table isn't bugged, if anyone else has killed him, would appreciate the info.

I'm curious since he drops ancient spells, was this Raid mob created during Velious or was he added on during Luclin era, and did his loot table change when Luclin came out? I started playing late during PoP era.

I don't recall if the Vulak`Aerr fight was created during Luclin, but the Ancients were definitely new with Luclin, so if nothing else they were added to his drops with Luclin.

RE: Late Question
# Feb 20 2006 at 11:39 AM Rating: Default
Velius and he always had ancient spells. Ancient spells from VT were not new to luclin.
