This is a raid expedition which begins in Dragonscale Hills. It is initiated by clicking on a door in the Kirkoten minotaur fort (+2420, +2345, +35). This door also serves as the entrance to the zone, Deepscar's Den.

The expedition can be initiated with as few as six people.

The Overseer

Here, you will encounter Overseer Gakkor Deepscar. Note that he is aggro from the start (there is no trigger other than standard aggro).

He hits for a max ~11,000, does NOT rampage or flurry, but does enrage. He also casts the following AEs:

Deepscar's Whirlwind: PB AE 25', Magic (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 5000

Overseer's Charge: Directional 50', Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 3500
2: Feign Death
3: Stun(1.00 sec)

Overseer's Heave: Directional 50', Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 2500

Targeted Damage

Also throughout the encounter, he has a "Rain of Boulders" trick.

Overseer Gakkor begins to cast a spell. Boulders begin to unlodge above _____!

The blank is the target's name and can be anyone in the zone. About five seconds after the above emote, the following spell will be cast upon the target three times.

Rain of Boulders: Targeted AE 40', Magic (-500)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 4000

The detriment here is that anyone else within 40 range of his target will also be hit with the three spells.

Golem Adds

Deepscar will occasionally go inactive and run to one of the siderooms to spawn a golem add. This is health-based, occurring every 5% or so.

Overseer Gakkor Deepscar begins to chant a low hymn as a formation begins to appear from the crystals in the room.

Once the golem add appears, Deepscar reactivates (with reset aggro) and must be once again dealt with. These incidents are health-based:

92%, 87%, 82%, 77%, 72%, 68%, 51%, 42%, 36%, 31%, 25%, 20%, 15%

You will get one of six golems. They don't hit terribly hard, but have varying abilities:

Amethyst Crystalline Formation

This AE rampages and has an aura called "Arcane Amplification" which increases spell damage taken by 50%.

Cerulean Crystalline Formation

This golem spawns a few "a crystal prison" adds which encase/mez people. They can only be attacked from the outside.

Obsidian Crystalline Formation

This golem spawns "an obsidian crystal golemite" adds.

Saffron Crystalline Formation

This golem chain casts an unresistable DD + stun for 6,000hp on anyone outside its melee range. Everyone should get in its melee range as soon as possible.

Vermillion Crystalline Formation

This golem spawns adds called "an ember mass" which have a DoT aura for 1,000hp/tick.

Viridian Crystalline Formation

This golem spawns adds called "a zephyr vortex" which have an unresistable DD for 2,000hp and SpinStun. It acts as an aura, catching anyone within its range.

Minotaur Adds

Also: At 50% Deepscar begins spawning waves of Kirkoten minotaur adds, three at a time. Again these are not terribly hard, but can add up if not killed quickly (waves come quickly... once every minute if not quicker).

Overseer Gakkor Deepscar has been slain by _____!
Your faction standing with Steam Factory Flunkies got worse.
Your faction standing with Brownie Rebels got better.

Adds do not despawn.

Deepscar himself drops 12 Cryptic Timetables, used in the progression task The Search for the Ultimate Story.


Upon completion, a chest spawns with loot containing 1 Whirring Clockwork Rune + 1 Humming Finsternacht Rune + 2 Ancient armor pieces (wrist/hands - first list) + 2 other items (second list):

Ancient Hardened Bracer
Ancient Hardened Gauntlets
Ancient Husk Gloves
Ancient Husk Wristguard
Ancient Scaled Gauntlets
Ancient Scaled Wristguard
Ancient Velvet Gloves
Ancient Velvet Wristband

Claw-Blessed Cloak
Claw-Sigiled Waistloop
Deepscar Painsmasher
Dragonscar Facemask
Shiny Runed Metallic Cape

103 SK with a 87 SHM Box
87 ROG
99 MNK
No problem what so ever. We did Big Bynn next, warrior left before we started, shaman died about half way through so Big Bynn was basically DUO'd with 103SK and a 99MNK.

Enter Fort go to far right small room with shelves on the walls.

Only need 6 players to get this, not 7. Had an interesting time, aggro was clearing but he wasn't bring more golems, then all of a sudden we got a lot of aggro at once and died. Was only t3 VoA geared group of bard, bst and pally, did good first 60% but once the 4 golems plus waves of kirks and spinning vortex's...even then probably could have been done if not for pally/bard bot

I think i have corrupted file o this event so I looked for its file in my computer. I couldn't find any deepscar's den file... oddly.
Anyone have any idea that what the name of this file is or where I can find it?
Appreciate it.

-Amethyst Crystalline Formation
(Abilities? Any adds?)

AE ramp(weak), adds with a ds, must range.

-Also: Deepscar will occasionally go inactive and run to one of the siderooms to spawn a golem add.

Quite often, every 5-10%

-Also: At 50% Deepscar begins spawning waves of Kirkoten minotaur adds, three at a time. Again these are not terribly hard, but can add up if not killed quickly.

Which repop, no matter what, until the event is over. *Short* amount of time between respawns, under 1 minute.

-Saffron Crystalline Formation
This golem chain casts an unresistable DD for 6,000hp on anyone outside its melee range

The dd has a stun component, so hug that golem asap.

Are these kirkoten adds mezzable/rootable?
# Jan 18 2009 at 6:01 AM Rating: Decent
As far as I can see, only the obsidian crystalline formation and its spawns the obsidian crystal golemites were mezzable or stunnable. Everything else was immune to both mez and stun.

This is a chaotic off-tanking free-for-all. The minotaur adds are wimps and susceptible to AE damage spells and I would think viral slows/other debuffs would be lovely for this fight.

Where please?
nm, found it. Knock at the door at +2420 / +2345 / +35 in Dragonscale Hills (Minotauren Fort, straight right-forward from entrance, the barred door).
