Dragon Necropolis  

Quick Facts

Level Range:
45 - 60

Send a correction
This is an ancient dragon burial ground located deep beneath the frozen tundra of Velious. The surface is overrun by phase spiders and occupied by a few excavation crews.

The tunnels that run below the necropolis are occupied by two clans of rats which do battle with one another. You must beware the numerous traps in these tunnels, the occasional appearances of undead dragon constructs, and the giant bats that flutter about and assist any of the rats being attacked.

Lurking within the Chetari tunnels is the black dragon, Zlandicar, whose guarded lair sits towards the end of the tunnel system.

Wandering around in DN encountered to mobs not listed here, a great green slime, and a chetari courier, both red to my 46 druid scout. Courier saw invis and killed me... stoopid little rat.

Why in the world do you call it DRAGON necropolis and your more likely to see a bunch of rats.. creeeeepy. There kinda cute but creeepy non the less. Is there some reason rats would live in a place where gigantic dragons that could gulp there civilization and or stomp on there civilization?

Dragon Necropolis = dragon graveyard. What else would you expect to see in a dragon graveyard other than spiders, rats, and maybe the occasional exiled dragon...

If I remember correctly, the first race of ratmen were the Paebala, formerly simple rats, they "evolved" because they ate the flash of the fallen dragons. All ratmen found on Norrath are offspring of the Paebala tribe. The leader of the Paebala is called Neb and they oppose the Chetari, led by Vaniki. Vaniki, the witch, sought more than the simple life of the Paebala (who worship nature spirits) and walked up to Zlandicar, offering him her service and the loyality of her followers. Zlandicar was pleased since his freedom is limited to the walls of Dragon Necropolis and gifted the Chetari with the power over life and death, in other words, he taught them necromancy and enhanced them with his dragon magic. Zlandicar uses the Chetari as couriers, agents and weapons against the Paebala who (in his eyes) steal his food (that's pretty much everything he's concerned about) :P (as a dragon he encounters a few problems in eradicating the Paebala who live in small tunnels and caves :P). Vaniki turned her back on Neb and began to enslave the Paebala tribe to abuse them as slaves, sacrifices to Zlandicar and...clothing. That's why Neb wants to see Vaniki and Zlandicar dead and offers the key to Jaled Dars lair in exchange for their hearts.

The Claws of Veeshan don't mind the presence of the Paebala, if they even noticed their existence, also they don't care much about Zlandicar (one of the greatest punishments in dragon society is to be erased from the dragon collective who shares some kind of soulbond), in their eyes, his fate is much worse than everything they could ever do to him.

Possible new trap

I was wondering around the zone last nite, invis of course, and I saw a message pop up on my screen, "you have disturbed a magi construct"

I failed to ever see this mob, but I did see that is was DB to me on track, and soon after seeing that message, I was being nuked. Bad part is that I was around a table full of spiders and my invis dropped when this thing nuked me.

I would say he was same lvl as the spiders, so 47 to 50.

Just thought I would give ya a heads up on this unlisted trap/mob.

This is a trap that triggers a shadowman-like mob inside a building you hear it from.

It casts shaman spells. Casted Malaisement on me, and nuked me.

After storming threw the "partial revamp" of SG, I thought I'd check here ..

One of the biggest things I noticed right away is it seems the Phase Spiders don't "phase" anymore /cheer, also heard that the queen is popping again (can't personally confirm this though).. As I didn't have extensive knowledge of DN pre-vamp, I'm not to sure what's new post-vamp. But, after going from zone in to Zlandicar's lair and everywhere in between, I either had the best luck not hitting trap's (or being caught with see invis) or there's a noteable difference ..

Plz post any other findings =)

Found this mob in the upper level of the zone, in the room where the Queen spawns. Anyone else kill this new mob? I killed it easily and it dropped nothing. Maybe just a PH for the Queen now? Or a rare drop item from it? Anyone know?

Actually the Odd lookin spider is now the trigger mob for Queen whatever, notice that it spawns in the same room as the queen. Once you kill the Odd lookin spider, it starts a 24 spawn killer for the queen. My advice is kill it when there is a low player activity on yer server. Should be looting a Queen's Carapice the next day or so 8) Hope this helps all out there....now to find those dern Paebala's lol

Me a 57 druid with no epic an a 56 warrior soloed the zone area. He would pull and I would snare root and Dot until 30% then warrior would wade in.
As stated above be prepared as root does break alot.We could do three before I would have to med have KEI and HOV. Mana pool of 3460.
Also on the dragon construct you must be under the dragon and you can get all your spells to land LOL, Thanks to Greagle for that tip.

Luck favors the prepared mind.

Everytime my guild tries to get to Zlandicar's lair, someone has to set off a trap cuz they don't follow instructions and stick to right wall. Many times have I gone through that hall and never set off traps. So a word to the wise, if u've never been to DN, or atleast to Zlandicar's lair, FOLLOW the leaders instructions and do not run straight through the hall. Hug the right wall at all times unless told otherwise.

Spawned the trap in the Chetari area the other day, but instead of the usual beetles, "a voracious hatchling" spawned. Seven of them.

They look like baby phase spiders about the size of the swarming beetles, they proc shadow step just like the big spiders.

Phase was very annoying down there becuase people kept getting phased into the rat tunnel and we kept getting rat adds while trying to deal with the spiders. We eventually just evaced out because it was really getting out of control.

How many people would I need to be able to hunt the big rat fellahs? I've got a 60enchanter, a 52warrior, a 55cleric, a 51 warrior,52necro,and 56warrior. Would that be enough or will we get owned horribly?

You should do fine with this group, but if you move down the rat hole in the chetari area you will have to kill the bugs that spawn from the trap there unless you bring a rouge/bard to disarm it.

Need to have a monk tag along to single pull them and to add some damage. Adds are annoying and can be very hard to mez. You will also prolly want an evacer with you as you cannot run to zone reliably from where the rats are. Have your enchanter keep Gok and Rapture ready. Dazzle isnt even worth keeping memed here. btw, if you are lookin to get to the rats, invis up and just move past the spiders, careful not to step on bones, ect. You may know this but by your question, i am assuming you are new to the zone =)

How do you reach the Paebala camp? I can get to the first pool of water with the entropy Serpent, under the AMorphous Mob area, but I can't get up that tunnel.

Is there some way through the door over by the entrace to shortcut there? Or do I have to grav flux up?

For all you people asking about whether or not you'd get a group there, probably not. Dragon Nec is pretty much a raid only zone (or small group for the yard trash but that's still 'bring your own group'). Even a kickass lvl 60 would have to have really really good timing to just walk in and find some action (and be good at sneaking into other people's raids unanounced; i.e. not recommended).
Ok, I'll shut up now.
