So when is my pocket pal coming back to the Flame?

Rules?

What are rules, if only to be broken?

The fight against Lord Valthalak was indeed incredible!

Our initial attempts were made by Chiisai, Lirami, Orlilu, Angrboda, Drell, Kili, Meicha, Oberron, Chess, and myself. We made our way to the lair of The Beast in record time, due in no small part to the quality of the group, whereupon Chiisai lit the Brazier of Beckoning and summoned the ghost of the monstrous Lord Valthalak.

We faced him bravely! And died.

We did some planning, and threw ourselves without fear once more into the fray! And died.

We took a small bit of time out to look at what we were doing, before putting in another go at him. We died.

At this point, monsters had begun to creep back into the halls of the Upper Spire, and certain of our number found they had to depart. We were then aided by Verannion of our number, Iceriders (a hunter who is a friend of Meicha's, and mine), and Zert, who brought with a companion from Vir Mortalis, Elspeth.

After a brief strategical discussion, we once again attacked Valthalak, with the intention of taking his life's blood! We died.

We attacked again. And died again

And again.

And again.

It seemed like all our discussion and tactics were doing little to aid us, so we decided to focus all of our firepower upon the monster, and see how we fared.

So, we attacked...

And the monster fell! It was glorious! After nearly ten times of being beaten down and back, we rallied, we did not give up, and kicked it!

Now Chiisai and I have been rewarded for our ongoing efforts against Lord Valthalak, she with the Helm of Heroism and the Breastplate of Heroism (in which she looks amazing!), and myself with the Virtuous Crown, and the Virtuous Robe!

All that is to left is to thank all those that played a part in this - I love you all! :D

Sofi.

Well done.


Thalos I did it some time ago... at 1st try. I was with some very skilled people around like Arashi (even if she is rushy), Bisley, Mccloud and the "abnormal" priest Saladir (9000 mana unbuffed!!!). I'll post something on strategy forum considering that this fight require a very fixed group.

*cries* I should have been there ... I worked so long to get my Magister set and just as long to get upto this part of the upgrade quests. Tried him once or twice with Chii, but we wiped.

Anyway, BIG GRATZ to all of you, I know this boss is a big bad tough cookie! From what I read he's one of the toughest in the game. (It is a 10 people event after all)

As to strategies, in brief :
Tank on boss
Manadrainer on boss
2 healers on tank
3 or 4 rogues or Zerties on spawns till hes down to 30%, then he stops spawning adds
2 or 3 mages nuke boss
Greater Shadow Resistance potions are highly recommended and should be used after hes below 50%
Now this is what I read about it, but I'm afraid it only works if the spawns are killed immediately. If they get to attack, you wipe, takes a few secs, but once their special attack starts you can consider yourself dead.

Another way I was thinking of when we tried him is exactly as Sofi did it ... nevermind the adds and nuke the boss as fast as possible.
When he's dead, he can't summon any more adds, can he?

Well done for getting him down in the end. I'm sorry I couldn't stay but I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. I think that it should also be mentioned that his monumental effort came after bashing our heads against what felt like a brick wall with Tearar earlier.

Anyways well done all.

Mmm, we found that excessive force worked best, as usual.

Drain his mana, have people beat him up as soon as mana is gone to get him to the magic 40% asap. Once we stopped worrying so much about the shades, and actually smacked boss guy, it was quite easy. (Shades must of course be killed ASAP, but leave them to the "lesser" DPS, for instance pally)

Can't say that our group was that balanced: lock, hunter, pally, mage, rogue, 2xwarrior, 3xpriest.

Grats guys, good to see you took him Smile

Always smack your opponent faster than he smacks you. Wise words.

I was feeling nostalgic and thought I would check some of these old posts. Funnily enough, I actually remember this night (ten years ago!!). The frustration of the repeated attempts, the slight jealousy when Sofi won the priest stuff, and the elation at finally getting him down. Good times. Not sure if any of the oldies still play, but if you do, hello from an old ef priest.
