I use to love this quest get a full group of 6 necro's and it was on we would stay pretty much the full 6 hours. I would love to do it now but everyone at 85 no one will ashame how fast soe kills off great expansions like Omens, DON, Prophecy Of Ro, SOF, TBS, TSS, but oh well maybe one day yeah right and I will be a millionaire they might make an expansion similar to this again.

Well, since I don't see much info posted about the site, I guess I can make sense of it for those of you who haven't made much attempt to advance through DoD yet.

This zone is fairly noted for being completely kiteable by a necro, sk, or any aggro kite class. I myself box this mission whenever I need a semi-quick aa, or some gear for an alt. Mainly every mob you need to kill to score the page drops for the 69.1 quest, handed out by Brovil Palivineg in CC, are spiders. They do NOT summon, but DO hit quite hard, so keeping your distance is a plus. They do have a fare share of hp, so having a rogue or other nice dps class is a huge help, and of course, u need 3 to get the mission.

If you were to solo, expect at least a good 3-4 hours investment on your win, added group members will cut the time in half.

At 70 with 90% defensive aa, mobs hit me for roughly 1.1k each, and quad often. Some are casters, some will gate, but rarely does it end up in a bad situation.

I have found, but cant guarentee, that when you clear all of yard trash mobs first, you will find 4 pages, then 1 on the 3 undead to the far left of the zone (west), and then you will be able to locate 2 pages per hive, usualy without pullin the upper or lower levels.

A nice guide to the DoD progression can be found here:

Hope this helps, happy kiting fellas :)
