Very rare

Extremely rare spawn... or I had terrible luck. Took me 5 day of ~8 hours per day killing the PH. PH is always Xi Vius, and is always (???) the cleric version of the mob. Respawn is 27minutes which is slightly longer than all the other mobs in the area. Makes it easy to confirm you're killing the right mob,

Took him down last night 1/20/05 with my 66 Ranger. He was an accidental pull as I was trying to harmo the guys around him when one aggroed, I snared it and as I was running out of the fort he popped right on me. I snared him and then proceeded to aggro a few gorangas. I rooted him just to the left of zone and zoned out.

I came back in started to solo him to the left of zone and this is a bad spot. I got add after add, after add. I had about 7. So I snared them and then kited them all into a circle. From there I went to the right side of zone which seems to be an add free area. I proceeded to bowkite him until he was dead. At about 12% he starts to flee unless snared. Unfortunately he was right out front of the tunnel when he turned to flee so stayed there in plain view.

I saw this mage eyeing him up and so I ran to check his loot. It was the centien visor which I wanted for my druid who was camped about 30 feet away. As I started to kill my goranga adds(not wanting to zone out for fear the mage would loot it on me) she bent down and I ran over and yelled STOP in says and she proceeded to loot it and run towards zone and then zone out.

Anyways, he does cast but nothing really hit me. Doesnt summon, can be snared and rooted as well. Doesn't enrage or hit all that hard. Was a fun fight with all the adds, but being ninja looted really takes the fun out of it....

Have killed him 4 times over last several days and many hours of camping, has dropped centien visor every time. So I think I have established what the common drop is. Tis the idol I want though.
few questions

I believe i reda a post saying spirit of shackles could slow this guy, so I'm assuming he is undead then? Well just wondering because I was gonna take my 65 necro and my 55 beast and make an effort to camp him for a drop or two
Overlord still spawns

I just killed the Shadow Overlord yesterday after camping him for the past 4 days on and off. He dropped what I wanted...the Transient Idol.

Basically, I just clear the PH everytime I pass by the zone. He is not too hard to single pull. I just lull all the mobs around him, move to the side (outside) of the broken tower that is closest to the spawn point, then hit em with a DoT. I wait for him to pop out of the tower and on top of me. Then I drag him out of the outpost. He'll hit ya with a HT for around 1000 and once in a while he'll lifetap for 280 and also try to fear ya. It took me a while solo but most of my songs landed especially mez when I need to heal.
He Still Around?

I spent a couple weeks in ME trying to get this guy. From the descriptions I don't think he spawns any more. Can someone please mention it if they have seen him in the past couple months?
Thank you

# Aug 11 2003 at 5:26 PM Rating: Decent
think a full group of 50+ could take him?

Im beginning to think the Overlord is a Myth, we have camped the ruins night after night after night, cleared every mob, tried every tactic we can think of and have never seen him. In all we have spent over 70hrs here, time to move on.

Over Lord

Well finally saw him on ME last nite 3/27. I camp him with my dad 62 necro , my brother 60 druid and myself 64 monk. His actural spawn at loc pos1500 pos650 in a Half pipe Building , His PH might be a Xi Vius or relative, wont be 4 arms. The safe spot to camp him is pos1750 pos850 as the corner you can see it in EQATLAS map. Here are something you might useful:

In the pipe house , there will be 5 Xis' ,2 door 3 inside , the middle of the inside 3 is Overlord PH, his spawn time is 35 or 40min, not like those around him were 30min, this might mess your timing on pulling , and breaking in is pretty hard.

Make sure you have druid to HoN (Harmony of Nature) those on left side when you face the pipe house from corner before pulling, I will suggest you clean them first. There will be a 4 arms stand near wall and her right side will be 2 Xis' guarding another ruin entrance , they will chain aggro if you pull from pipe house but not kill them first or HoN them.

You can use some undead only offence spell to Xis' like Shackles of spirits ( yes my dad rocks). But 4-arm ladies where not and most of them were lv57 , If they are SK form you wil be HT 911 , If they are Cleric form you will have a long fight becuase you are hard to interrupt their CH cuz they lv57+.

The Overlord himself is SK, do 1011 HT and really , not hit hard. I am 3800hp/1285 ac with druid crap buff can tank him with ease , even he can be slowed by shackles also. But He drop the Visor not Idol I want , dad is happy and I will keep camp him these days. hope you guyz could use these info.

Exact Spawn Loc?

Anybody have the *exact* spawn spot within the alien city? Or can any 4-arm be his PH?
Drops Transient Idol

We took him down with 60 druid 60 pally and 56 shaman without any difficulty.

He dropped Transient Idol, nice range slot for melee.

if you can handle him how many HP would you say he has and would you say he is pretty rootable.

i want to solo him with 65 epic wizzy with all pop spells 104k lizard and hundreds of aa . since he does not summon i was thinking it might be possible since i have click nuke robe also . just need to be able to nuke and root him and KEI would help.

Edited, Sat Apr 26 06:10:27 2003
not too hard
# Aug 06 2002 at 6:36 PM Rating: Decent
This guy doesnt summon, and has fairly low resists for a 60 mob, he is a 60 sk, and hits for 181 max . A lev 60 with decent resists should be okay, does cast the 280 point life leach spell though, but can be avoided if you stay at max spell range. Had him to 16% without KEI, and having to recast PotC midfight---but had to egress after a 4 arm CH'd him (was standing over a curious druid's corpse that was close to where i was kiting)
Done him with 2

Took him out with 60 chanter and druid. Charmed a goranga to add some dps and memwiped any adds after pull. Dropped a spirit of flame spell(atleast that is what i remembered it was) BL spell, not sure of level.

Yeah, my chanter friend and I killed him by ourselves too. First try we had some misfortune. Chanter was going to train pull to zone, and I was supposed to pick him out of the train with snare, then we'd come back and kill him away from his buddies. I'm still not sure what went wrong with that plan. The Overlord wasn't in the train, I went back to check out his spawn point and he wasn't there either.. and not on track for that matter. So we figured maybe some kinda bug depop. Anyway, we went and dorked around in UP for 30min and came back. Surprise, surprise Overlord is back up. This time I was going to pull. With good player skill he can be solo pulled using harmony. If you can keep him away from his friends pretty easy fight really. Just root/dotted him to death. With a little luck, I'm sure a druid could solo kill. I'll have to try it next chance I get =)
Spawn location
# Jul 01 2002 at 10:29 AM Rating: Good
As far as know (rumor) the Overlord spawns in the North West part of the ruins not too far from the DS zone. Look out for the tube shaped structure with an arched doorway. At the doorway stands 2 spooks and inside 3 or 4 spooks. We cleared this area for about 5 rounds but no Overlord. Although the drop rate for mobs in that area is fantastic. 1 earing, 2 belts, 5 medalions, and 3 spells over 3 hours.

Need some Specifics as to where he spawns
# Jun 22 2002 at 6:10 PM Rating: Decent
Were planning to slay him coming up really soon, can anyone give me an approximate location or description of where he spawns? Is it in the huge fortress near the Spire like structure? Is it right at the structure, or in one of the other oddly shaped buildings? I sure would appreciate any info that could help me out with him. He is not in the boathouse correct, but the larger fortress, correct?

How many groups are needed to drop this sucker?
# Jun 07 2002 at 1:32 AM Rating: Decent
Can one group put this bad boy outta his misery? Or is a raid required? And does it drop anything else besides Transient Idol and Centien Visor?
RE: How many groups are needed to drop this sucker?

Hey can be bagged with a single high level group. Killed him 2 weeks ago with a 60 sk, 60 bard, 60 druid, 59 cleric, 59 mage and 58 pally.

Sk pulled to the DSP zone. Bard picked him from the train and it took about 5 minutes of fighting to finish him off.

Anyone know if this thing summons? Lots of high end Luclin mobs dont, just curious.
RE: Summons?
# Aug 13 2002 at 5:44 AM Rating: Default
No, he doesn't summon. He can also be rooted/snared as well. Honestly, the apes in UP are tougher.
#Mythox, Posted: Apr 17 2002 at 2:01 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) on group fighting.. think.. your friend takes the lead and makes the big uggly troll attacking him.. you get behind it.. raise your spear (i use barbed) and .. hunters boon.. ouch.. thats gotta hurt he is slowed.. then.. javelin.. ouch ouch.. he is bleeding.. and then hunters gift..ouch ouch ouch.. it makes the mid crap flew out of him.. attack speed reduces and your defend raises.. but i think u cant hit him 3 times.. he should die at the first one.. :) ++ casters in rvr died at one-two hits.. blue viking died at the first..and for the dudes who spoke about the evade thing.. cs spear dude wont evade he is a man/firbolg and we are the warriors of honour .. and also .. i evade once in a day.. :)
