    I downed Vessel Drozlin a couple nights ago with my trio @ 54 (Enchanter, Cleric, Magician). Took me five tries before charm held throughout the fight. (Did Verina Tomb last night, too. Chanter epic well underway.) I'm looking at Phinigel for my next achievement.

    First attempt:
    [Sun Apr 04 12:34:32 2021] Vessel Drozlin says 'You may get the Rod of Xolion, but the Crusaders of Greenmist will bury you in this pit!'
    Final attempt:
    [Sun Apr 04 14:34:54 2021] Vessel Drozlin says 'You may get the Rod of Xolion, but the Crusaders of Greenmist will bury you in this pit!'
    [Sun Apr 04 14:38:30 2021] Lartik hits Vessel Drozlin for 58 points of damage.
    [Sun Apr 04 14:38:30 2021] Vessel Drozlin has been slain by Lartik!
    [Sun Apr 04 14:38:30 2021] Your faction standing with Legion of Cabilis got worse.
    [Sun Apr 04 14:38:30 2021] Your faction standing with Cabilis Residents got worse.
    [Sun Apr 04 14:38:30 2021] Your faction standing with Scaled Mystics got worse.
    [Sun Apr 04 14:38:30 2021] Your faction standing with Crusaders of Greenmist got worse.
    [Sun Apr 04 14:38:30 2021] Your faction standing with Swift Tails got worse.
    [Sun Apr 04 14:38:30 2021] You gain party experience!!
    [Sun Apr 04 14:38:32 2021] You receive 1 platinum, 1 gold, 3 silver and 8 copper from the corpse.
    [Sun Apr 04 14:38:35 2021] --You have looted a Xolion Rod.--

    Verina Tomb only took one attempt. She's so much easier it's shocking that they have the same sort of spawn timer.
    [Wed Apr 07 13:39:20 2021] Verina Tomb says 'Hatred is the Universal Truth.'
    [Wed Apr 07 13:45:50 2021] Verina Tomb has been slain by Draan N`Ryt!
    [Wed Apr 07 13:45:50 2021] You gain party experience!!
    [Wed Apr 07 13:46:02 2021] --You have looted a Innoruuk's Word.--

    It's pretty obvious if you can just look past the blacked out boxes. Grats Thucy!

    Vessel at 54 is pretty nice - He's way harder than Verina as you said. You'll have no trouble with Phinny or probably Lodi if you were able to take him out.

    Are you saying that you can stun lock Dread or time his DTs? Is he able to DT while stunned? I believe they will go through DA, but it would be mind-blowing to find out that they can be (mostly) avoided using a simple stun.

    lol, I trust there's enough gaps in the time stamps for camping out toons. But once he started doing damage, the fight was over in 37 seconds:

    Well the pet was going at it for about 4 minutes, and a one handed bard, but the wizard sped things up a lot

    I managed to get the tangrin down at 56. I charmed Warlord Zyzz for the fight, weaponized him and gave him a muzzle, and it took a few tries for, once again, charm to hold out long enough for the fight. I mixed in some nuking with the mage, and had the earth pet there with taunt off for DPS, and wound up getting the mage killed when summoned. Managed to rez the mage and resummon the pet for added DPS mid-fight. Charm broke just as the tangrin started to run, but luckily Zyzz was stunned by the monkey long enough to recharm and chase his fleeing ass into the water. managed to lure Zyzz away, break charm, and coth the chanter to clear aggro to get rid of him so I could loot the monkey in peace.

    The first few tries ended with charm breaking early, getting summoned by Zyzz, and the monkey stunning the chanter into oblivion. At that point the earth pet just died in under 30 seconds with no amount of healing capable of keeping it alive.

    Really, the hardest part was charming Zyzz, since there's Troopers all over (and if Trooper Taer is roaming by, he'll aggro on charm). Having a mage to coth when things go south speeds up retries, but it's way too slow if you get more than one trooper. Anyone else wanting to try needs to Pacify Trooper Chikzik on the lower level, and maybe Taer if he's roaming past; otherwise it's quick to duck down the lower level and run out the side entrance, and then hope charm holds long enough to get to your Malo box (though before weaponizing and hasting, a half-decent geared chanter can channel through his smacks to mez and recharm).

    Amusingly, on one of the charm attempts, I aggroed the Crusader on the bottom level... but apparently he doesn't run at SoW speed, so I outdistanced him and only his pet wound up following me to the prep island, which was promptly murdered by Zyzz.

    Smacked down Vilefang tonight at 57. It took all damn night and lots of CRs, but it wound up being an accidental pull when I finally managed it. Charmed a worker, since it was popped in the room I was pulling him to, sicced mage earth pet, and landed slow on first try while mezzing the two rats that guard the entrance to his pool - I accidentally proximity aggroed them. Charm held for the fight, and down he went. Now I just need some Vindi tags for my Circlet.

    For a hat trick I went and took out Abyott so I have all the pieces for my Circlet quest.

    Got Phinny down at 58. A little late, but it took forever to get EB items for all three characters. Pulled him out, mezzed him, Tash, Malo, drained his mana for a bit, Slowed, Blanketed for blur, Malosini again on the mage for aggro and let mez fade. 57 Earth pet only needed 3 Complete Heals, threw out 2 or 3 nukes on the mage. As an added bonus he had the Staff of Elemental Mastery: Water so I don't have to do it again.

    Guild was bitching at me for streaming boring things and not stuff like epic kills, so I turned on stream right after mage pet engaged. Here

    Is twitch glued to your enchanter client even though you're swapping about or do you have multiple PCs running your different characters? Also, i hate your UI a little bit.

    I have three computers, one box on each, and stream on my main rig, which is where I play the enchanter. And I like minimal UIs that give me maximum viewing area. I play at 2560x1440 but even back in the halcyon days of 800x600 I preferred UIs like this one. You would probably HATE my WoW UI - I use IceHUD there.
