an acidic mass  

Raid Encounter

Uploaded July 24th, 2007

End mob in the "Ring of Slime" event in the Slime pools in Cazic Thule. Slime pool is accessed from down the well to the south near the zone-in. One of the swirling oozes in the green pool is perma-rooted and a raid con.

a swirling ooze (Lvl: 56) -> a bubbling ooze (Lvl: 60) -> a boiling ooze (Lvl: 63) -> an acidic mass (Lvl: 64) which spawns an acidic ooze (Lvl: 56) as adds during the fight.

I wonder if this event is broken. This mob was up when I entered the area pursuing the gelatinous mass for Hunter. I killed it and then another copy popped. Killed that and nothing more. Both dropped some of the loot from their list. Nobody in zone and I didn't see any precursor mobs. Odd...

This event has MoTM IV on all of the mobs. Kind of dumb it's not MoTM V since they don't open up revamped CT unless the server is in PoP... but that's DPG/DBG for you.

Solo'd by an 82 monk, no merc/no defensive aa's, just gallantry, bloodworg and haste.

(24khp 3.2kac)

took 9 minutes, I was able to mend and delay death myself back to health both times I got low.
Fight smarter not harder.
Tried it

I tried to solo it as an anguish geared wizard with some tacvi gear - I got up to the acidic mass using instant nukes and medding, and then swimming outside melee range whenever he summoned.

I got him down to 78% and then got my butt handed to me on one bar of mana.

Had I gotten patient harvest off though and had staunch recovery up, I probably could've gotten him down to 50% solo if I had a healer with me.

It doesn't take many to do this for sure.

However, all phases are rooted now so you have to fight down there, it's not bad though.
He can be duo'd

This is the boss of the slime event as stated... He spawns 2-3 adds through the fight it just seemed random to me.. He does NOT have near 400k hps this event was boxed Anguish , Demi Blood , Vishi,Rikk end game geared Rogue 14k hps and my very crappy cleric who has 6k mana 6.5 buffed.

THe fight went as follows.. Razor Arc.. hit for 6.7k x2 then proceeded to beat on him for about 3 min he was at 74% 2 add's spawned used assassin feight on Boss to just make sure I had 100% aggro

Killed add's with ease.

Got back on Boss at 32% he spawned 1 add killed it with ease then finished him off. Cleric was at 70% mana when I was done.

Simple fight.. Just pay attention fight in the water. And if you bring a group .. dont bring a idiot chanter / brd all they will do is mess things up. Best bet for groupin this thing is

1 Tank for the Main Boss the whole time
1 tank for the adds
2 DPS.. use melee perfered.. or a very good caster who knows there stuff .. Mage works great with Fire pet and Fire nukes and Ice nukes
1 slower / Dps healer spot healer for Off tank...shaman
1 Clr or Druid depends on your comfort lvl and your gear and trust in the healer, and mana pool.

Hope this info works.. Get your magic resist over 350 or that AE will maul you.. make DAMN sure your healer has 350 magic or you will loose

Ok here is some info on this fella/event.

Kill ph, Swirling ooze (perma rootet) and Bobbeling ooze spawn right after slay, hits about 200 tops low hp, slay and Boiling ooze spawn right after hitting 400ish, moderate amount of hp, slay and Acidic ooze spawn, hits about 800ish have an AE as mentioned above (i have 300ish MR resistet every time) he have about 800K hp and spawn minimum 2 adds during the fight (and dont forget the 5 adds that have a 20 min spawntimer around him) Fire and magic hits him pretty well, only a few resists from me (70 nec)
we had some problems pulling oozes up on land so we decided to kill all in water.. with a bard CC... we whiped when we had 7 adds (5ppl grp, 70 nec 70 war 70 cle 70 bard 70 rog)
Despawn timer on Acidic is 30 mins.

Hope my post will help some 8)

Events has changed since alot the old strategies. Essentially you kill a few mobs before this pool then kill a swirling ooze at bottom of the pool its rooted I believe.
Then you get Bubbling Ooze unrooted slowable, this is where event has been changed. In the past people pulled this guy to safe fight spots and his death spawned next mob ontop of his corpse. This is no longer the case, upon his death the 3rd mob spawns at bottom of pond where original PH was.
The 3rd mob a Boiling mass is unslowable and has according to old info 120k hps, which probably about right. If you struggle with this guy I'd abort now or call in some serious backup.
Okay the 4th mob an acid mass the boss spawns in his place at bottom of ocean perma rooted and I noticed a number of adds spawned with him. Our group wiped on adds, not sure if anything else has been changed. I'll check back in few dayts when PH back up

# Dec 23 2004 at 3:44 AM Rating: Default
Yep, it's nerfed. Once you kill the Bubbling guy, the Boiling guy spawns down in the sewers again. Too bad, this was a fun event.

Well had that same thing happen tonight where the melee could not reach the mob. So we just nuked and sent in pets to tank mob at zone in. Took a loooooong time tho geez like forever. The mob summons and then sends players to the Feerot. Very doable at zone in was easy and crazy. Worried that we would not be able to loot the corpse but we did not have any problems with that.

Acidic mass is very resistant to poison and disease (hopeless to land those), resistant to cold and magic (these land, but are resisted often). I don't know about fire, but I assume that it's basicly immune to it just like the other mobs in CT.

As others noted before, easy fight, just takes forever.
Some stuff

3 day spawn time I believe... he's incredibly easy, just has a lot of HP.

I resisted the AOE every time with 200 svmagic... Paladin with below 200 got hit by it, so you need 200 svmagic to resist his AOE.

Was a very long fight for a 65 enc, 65 Rogue, 65 Paladin, 65 Paladin, 65 Cleric, 65 Shaman, 65 Monk. Dropped the acid scarred tunic and the robe... bleh.

I was the Paladin tank for the little (long is a better term rofl) event. My MR was 265 unbuffed and I forget the buffed amount, but I got hit by AE only once in about.... 343 AE's total LOL. Hit for 850 max, resists for debuffs are a joke except if you try to DoT it you'll find the blob to be a sherman tank against them. Nukes and straight melee is teh way to go.

Torment of Scio landed (Enc dot.)

Did the fight again, I resisted the aoe almost every time with 194 SVM. I got hit by the AOE around 5 times during the fight, so I would say 190+ SVM is needed for this fight.

Cost me 310k

Bought the gloves for 310k on Erollisi Marr today.

As far as Necro DPS goes, I can average about 180 DPS consistently over a long fight, probably about 250 DPS on a short fight (5 mins or less).

I just done killing him and he dropped the bracelet of viscious ooze. last time he dropped bracelet and acid scarred bp. Took me about an hour 20 mins to kill acidic mass.

Where is the trigger spawn ? I cannot find a reference to it anywhere that shows on the map where it is. Is it in green pool?

go out first two doors of zone. Turn around. go up ladder thru door. Descend stairs til you reach a hole. swim down hole thru water to tunnel (above water). Clear goos to next big lake. Trigger is at end of lake at bottom.

Recommend pulling the second mob out of the lake. Yes you will have to clear goos on repop...have everyone but MT peel and kill them. Once you spawn acidic mass he's rooted in place. It's a long fight but with 239 MR at level 65 I never once got hit with AE. We had repops 3 times during the entire cycle with 12 people.
Big question
# Aug 30 2003 at 10:00 PM Rating: Decent
I just spent a whole lot of time trying to figure out where in the heck this place is...

Can someone please give some clear directions ?

None of the maps I've found say where this is.
RE: Big question
# Oct 15 2003 at 10:40 PM Rating: Decent
where the mob is or the zone?
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 21 2003 at 3:42 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Killed him a couple of hours ago with 18ppl. Took about 25 or so minutes with the raid average around 62. Has around 800k hp ... enrages at around 10percent .. i think .. Well ya, he dropped to pauldrons and a robe of the viscid slime ...

Drop Rate
# Jul 03 2003 at 5:28 PM Rating: Decent
Has anyone noticed a decrease in this mobs drop rate per kill?

The last three times we have killed him he has only dropped one piece of loot. Usually he drops 2-3 pieces, anyone else having this prob?
RE: Drop Rate
# Oct 20 2003 at 5:55 PM Rating: Decent
yep its been nerfed no doubt. bracer and gloves are extremely rare now. the drop rates on many pre-PoP "raid encounters" have been nerfed due to the fact that alot of them are trivial due to increased levels/aa's. ive done the whole ring of slime event with 4 toons. it can probably be done with 3, however, with the amount of hps and ac that acidic mass, it would take an enormous amount of time; more than i would be willing to spend anyways =p
