I just spent some time in this zone and I asked one of my friend to help me take out the hivemistress..

I pulled every leech I could see in the first room back to the tunnel where you come from and then soloed them with my bst, and then I took the right tunnel, killed all roaming leeches there, and then pulled the Greater Horror back into the right tunnel, where the hivemistress aggroed, so we had both on us..I kept pet on them, while dru was healing pet and I was slowing and weakening both of those, then the horror aggroed on me, got it rooted, and we simply kept healing my pet and hitting the horror first, then we took on the hivemistress...was not the best way to do it, but still, with calm and patience, it can easily be done.
Tactic to killing this mob is simple

Go Invis to tunnel in front of the two Bosses.
Kill the 1st Roamer that walk's in the tunnel. Then pull The Greater Horror use'n a Bow & Arrows. You Won't Get The Hivemistress As Long As You Stay In The Tunnel as Far Back as the bow allows you to shoot. Kill the Greater Horror. Then Run In & Kill the Hivemistress. Or Invis Med Heal & Etc. Then Run in & Kill The Hivemistress.
These Two are pain's in the arz if you take both at the same time. But easy if you split them up.
I've farm'd these two mostly for the research caster's helm piece. Thought Horror Scalp
The Whip & Bracer & Stuff isn't worth much to me. Good For Twik'n Alts. Thats about it.

this mob has to be one of the worst cases of risk vs reward, the items she drops are all complete crap!!! this is a joke

Actually the Bracer is pretty decent; 12ac for a ranger or a rogue is nice plus 5 svf.

Definatly not bad for a mob I can solo easily (although it does take some time), 52 bard. 3 bracers and 4 necks so far.

1) I invis my way in;
2) tag her and reinvis
3) pull her outside and to the left as you exit. There's a nice flat spot with plenty of room to kite her.

This gives you just her and the greater horror to deal with.

I ignore the greater horror and whatever stonegrabbers aggro; never dropped anything but a tendril for me.

when I'm finished I zone into mars seru.

Both have high resists, and I cannot land charm on the horror (0/40 or so). she can be charmed.

They both hit for 180 max. Getting stuned and beat on sucks alot

Wow you must not have very good gear then. Im soloing here more for exp, cause this zone is never camped. I just run in, uninvised, down to the bottom and back out. Took 3 times to get the Hivemistress. I kite out on that spot you mentioned, and i got about 2 1/2 blues per group, in about half an hour. I almost never get resisted.

My guild has never found this place camped when we have gone in the take out the mini-bosses.

A single group of 50+ can do all this with _extreme_ ease. We tend to all Invis up and run into the penultimate chamber (nothing to that point sees Invis).

We then wait for the pathing mobs to come past, and kill them. If I remember correctly, there are three Thought Horroros and 1 bug.

Then it's a case of pulling the two bosses. The Hivemistress can be Rooted out of the way whilst you take out the Thought Horror first (as they tend to resist roots and snares).

Beware aggro radius in these caves. If they can see you, they will attack you.

well.. did the whole cave with 56 MNK 57MNK (me) 55 DRU 54 RNG...
i redid the cave with a 40 50 group, pulling for them..

I Just cped on my group.. and that was all..

Now respawn time is quick here.. You have a first big cave with 2 corridors. One corridor on the left , one on the right. Whether you pull left corridor and you'll have tons of leech to pull out.. or you choose to pick the right corridor, longer pull but no mobs..
Beware, lots of wanderers, who spring on you when they see you.. Even from far.
The hivemistress wont agro you if you pull before Tough horroros.. In the other sense i am not sure, because of leech agro range
Actually, I suggest...

Taking the time and pulling the thought leeches. First of all, this place is NEVER camped. Secondly, if you have a solid group, you can chain pull to your heart's content for some rather decent exp at the low fifties level.

We cleared the front chamber, then set up camp in there to pull the second chamber. Once that was cleared, we set up in there before the first chamber repoped. We pulled the greater horror and the mind leech (one of many named which drop items for the twilight armor quests). We dropped the horror (who graciously dropped his rather rare head piece) then we medded up and rushed the Mistress.

We downed her rather easily, actually.

Incidentally, we did all this without a cleric OR an enchanter. Our group was a 51 wiz, 51 mage, 50 war, 53 druid, 54 druid, and a 52 bst. We OWNED those tunnels.

could a level 52 ranger kill her solo?

possible but pretty tough.. she hits hard. Fighting like a Druid using our gimp dots you might stand a fair chance

The Con is not always an accurate judge of level, a 51 Bst is blue to a 50 necro. for example.

I'd say con is always accurate judge of lvl.. Never seen any example contrary to that.
You sure he didnt con pet?
Try this.....

Had a 51 cleric 53 drood 49 war 49 monk. Sowed my monk and pulled her to zone. Since she is considerably faster than other mobs in the tunnel (was almost keeping up with a 53 sow), it was easy to get her way ahead of the others by the time I hit the zone. Just FD and had the war quickly tag her. Split with no prob, warn others b4 doing this tho, as you do bring about 15 or so mobs near the zone =P.
some info

hivemistress is definatly lvl 49. most players will be indiffrent to the bugs untill you start killin them, then faction will go Down hill VERY fast. if your coming to hunt her for loot DONOT attack or kill bugs at all. the horrors around her will be enough for most all groups to deal with, there are aprox 12 to 15 in the cave and respawn in about 5 to 7mins. best strat we found in 4hours of screweing with her. was to have all buff and invis at thezone to marus seru. then run directly to her bypassing ALL horrors and bugs. form up directly behind her, have main tank stand next to the main horror dude. on his call. he attacks main horror, and the rest of the group attacks the mistress. drop her first then finish off the main horror and any adds. we chose to evac as we only wanted the mistress and her loot.

our group consisted of a 58war,53sk,48sk,49 cleric, some druid. 51monk and a few others. total of 7 ppl. the first cpl trys was total failurs, as we tried killin our way to her. prob was someone was misstargeting onto bugs and causeing cRazy adds and trains to zone.
only strat that worked, is the one i listed above. last resort was train all horrors to the grey zone and kite them around while the group worked the mistress, we didnt attempt it as our 5th attempt worked.

do not hang around the cave mouth as the stone guys will aggro from very far away and cause unneeded stress.
mistress is very easy to drop.
just watch for respawns and adds.

Lvl not right

I don't think the lvl or this mob is listed right. The range should go higher. She conned yellow to a lvl 47 chanter last night. Perhaps my wimpy melee skills are the reason for that con, bu tI think she is higher.
