Finally found him alive to talk to him.

You say, 'Hail, Praesertum Rhugol'

Praesertum Rhugol says 'Greetings, Uxtalzon.'

You say, 'praesertum matpa'

Praesertum Rhugol says 'Ha! A fine example of Gnomish industry, Matpa is. He manages the Heart to perfection, and cooperates well with me. As it should be. This man wastes nothing, be it a piece of parchment or a worker, he uses everything to its fullest extent, and uses it well. If he has any fault, it is that he has a long memory. Cross Matpa, and you may think you have gotten away with something. But weeks, months, years, or even decades later, you find that Matpa has not forgotten, and has, in some way, made your life worse. Oftentimes, MUCH worse! Ha! I appreciate that sort of patience, though I am more fond of immediate action, and looking you in the eyes when I enact my revenge.'

You say, 'praesertum vantorus'

Praesertum Rhugol says 'Vantorus is the Praesertum of the Hand. An able warrior, and competent general, he serves Seru well. But he makes the mistake of thinking he is outside my reach. The Eye watches everything and everyone, especially those in posistions of power. Most especially those with power AND control of an army. Ha. One day, Vantorus will push his luck too far, and I will be forced to make a change in the Hand. He already coddles his men. They are more loyal to him than they are to Seru, and that presents a problem, as you can well imagine.'

You say, 'praesertum bikun'

Praesertum Rhugol says 'An overfed, slovenly pig, that is who Bikun is! Were it not for the man's obvious talents as a con artist and racketeer, which serves him well in his position as head of Commerce and Industry, I would have dealt with him years ago. Why Seru tolerates his excess is beyond me. And what is worse, Bikun actually ENCOURAGES his subordinates to exhibit the same behavior. He says it is good for morale. I say it is good for his conscience. If everyone is a pig, he does not look so bad. I am still not sure what will happen first. His heart exploding from overwork, or his heart exploding when I thrust a spear into it. Time will tell, I suppose. Ha.'

You say, 'who is seru'

Praesertum Rhugol says 'My lord and master, the only being that I truly fear and respect, in every aspect. Only the ignorant and foolish dare oppose him. Are you ignorant Uxtalzon? If so, let me help you correct that condition. Do not cross Seru. Do not cross those that labor for Seru. I am somebody you do not want on your back. Vantorus is a bad person to have on your back. Matpa is a bad person to have on your back. Even Bikun is a bad person to have on your back. Collectively, we pale in comparison to Seru. Do not travel down that road. In small words, in case you are both ignorant AND stupid. Seru strong. Seru wise. No make Seru mad. Seru hurt you. Seru hurt you bad. Now that I have told you this, you are no longer ignorant. If you then choose to cross Seru, you are simply a fool. We do not long suffer fools in this city.'

You say, 'fat'

Praesertum Rhugol says 'Have you visited the Plane of Growth lately?'

You say, 'what shops'

Praesertum Rhugol says 'There are many fine shops in Sanctus Seru. I suggest you browse them for yourselves.'

Faction hits

Eye of Seru -2000
Hand of Seru +200
Heart of Seru +200
Seru -100
Haven Smugglers +200
Validus Custodus +500
Magus Conlegium +500

So unless you're ally with Eye of Seru before killing him, you'll likely fall KOS.

faction hits and how to avoid

I just killed this guy with my 76 warrior and his tier V cleric merc, and my 75 druid with a tier V tank merc. I rooted Rhugol with the druid and got banished but the merc got aggro first. I was just going to let the 2 mercs do all the work but the dps on the tank merc was horrible so I joined in with my warrior until Rhugol hit 10%, at that point I had already used my Glaive of Marltek to snare him and ran for the zone with my warrior. Since being banished to the jail cell and running back with the druid I never assisted the merc. The tank merc finished off Rhugol and neither my warrior or druid took any faction hit.

Just thought I'd add that the root spell I used with my druid was Savage Roots which has no damage component to the spell, perhaps that made a difference.

Just an FYI,I went from ally faction to KOS in one kill,atleast the mobs just outside his room are now KOS who were not b4 killing him,i /coned the guards at the zonin & they were ally faction. but as i write this i remember their being a see invis mob in his building that only /con amibly on the way in,so maybe i just lost a certain faction?. if I go back to try again for bridle i'll try & remember to update this.

I got the arms of augmentation today for my monk. A 75 shm with 686 AAs soloed this with self-buffs only. He was banished once, but pet stayed on mob while he ran back.

Thanks Flost (Seventh)

Easiest mob I would guess of the 4. Pet had all summoned gear on, cleric HOT on and sent pet into do battle, slowed at about 95%, crippled and kept the rotation up. Cleric just kept hot on when needed, ranger joined in about 80% and shot arrows, nuked, DoTed once in a while. Didn't try to run but snare landed anyway (level 69 from DoN). 8 minute fight, lots of hp but isn't much trouble once slowed and kept that way. He kept summoning the pet when he got knocked back. Didn't flurry but he was crippled nearly all the time. Pet barely got below 80% and cleric's mana was always above 70%. Pet had Tenacity, wunshi and other shaman buffs loaded. Added Cleric's 2 DS's and ranger's 2 DS's for added DPS.

Not sure on respawn times, probably 84 hours like other mobs with the random spawn timer included, just a guess, will edit in 90 hours or so if he spawns again or sooner, getting 3 arc keys atm.

Done today with 70th Mage and 63rd Cleric, easily kept up. Loads of mana on both, CH and Pyrilen Skin ftw.

his guy runs at low hp's 6% ish so beware, I wasn't and aggroed the guards out side but still managed it easy enough.

Drop arms no bridle :-(

Down to a Druid and an Enchanter
# Nov 01 2004 at 11:47 PM Rating: Decent
Well, I saw that it dropped a horse and I decided that it had to die! So I (69 enchanter) grabbed my friend (67 druid) and said we needed to kill it. However, I didn't bother to read anything about it. We went into the fight completely blind.

So I charmed a guard that was DB to me, and buffed him like crazy. I mezzed the mob (he's not very resistant) and debuffed him with tash, slow, and cripple. Then I memblurred him til he conned indifferent again. Then the fun started.

When he woke up, I sent the pet in. The pet was losing the fight, but with the druid on heals, it was no problem. For the first round, we kept wondering what the blue arc spell effect was that was on the pet. Well, charm eventually broke and I was summoned by both the mobs. I quickly hit WoM and got both mobs under control. We regened the pet, but we also noticed that the mob was regening at an incredible rate as well.

Well, bliss wore off and the mob instantly summoned my pet and started wailing on it again. On the third break, we had agreed that I would deal with the pet and the druid would deal with the main mob. When the pet broke, I got the pet mezzed and was working on regen. The druid was instantly summoned, and much to my surprise, he disappeared! So I mezzed the main mob and the druid evac'd. After getting set back up, both mobs had regen to 100%. /cry

We went for another round, not really sure what had happened. Sure enough, the druid disappeared again, and we had to start over again!

So we figured it out... we both bound ourselves at the mob and kept gate up. Whenever the mob banished us, we would simply gate back to the fight and continue wailing on him. If one of us needed to lose aggro, or we needed a heal, we would run up to the mob and let him banish us!

The fight took about an hour, and it was one of the most fun fights I've ever been in. The rog/monk sleeves dropped, a bard song, and the key part.

No horse! /cry

Pwned this jobber last night with Me war, 2 beast, mage, shammy, cleric and rogue <rogue was there for seru earring quest, I was there just to tank mobs on the way to his room cause mage was a latecomer so we had no coh> Was a easy fight, bst pets buffed with foucs/virtue had no problem tanking him. Dots, nukes, arrows all in, nobody was banished, fight lasted 7-8 minutes, very easy fight. Rogue got shard, and stupid arm piece, no horsey for us =P

Bring mostly all pet classes. Mage (for CoH) and pet, necro for pet, shaman for pet, and classes that can shoot arrows at his *** from other other side of room. Eventually, you'll get banished, but Mage is there to instantly CoH you, you good. Healer to heal up pets. I think I'm leaving out something. I forget, been so long since we did it.

>i think it would be easier to just pull him

Vantorus, the boss mob in the SW building, would not leave his floor under any circumstances for us. He would not go through the teleporter like every other mob on the floor did. Tried for about 3 hours today just to get him out of the building, and failed. Schemes ranged from the utterly simple to the utterly complex, but regardless, he'd stand at the teleporter while the rest of his buddies on the floor went through.
