    It's because people generally kill targets with actual loots!

    Pretty cool! Did you just train, deftdance, Denon and stun? No problems with stun resists?

    Cool!

    I've done some 3-box PBAE in Fear, and of mobs that can path near the ZI, only Amys and wraiths will resist color stuns once Denon's lands. If you can avoid them in your pull, or land a debuff like malosini (I used a mage for damage) ahead of time, it's pretty safe.

    I did Nukem's bard/wiz/enc Fear break. Pretty fun! I'm sure it's been done before, but I also trio'd draco with SK/clr/enc. I feel like Cazic himself might be doable with war/clr/clr, but it'd be a godawful long fight.

    Nice job! Cazic 3 box would be quite impressive. Assuming you can range the rampage, i'm not sure the clerics could keep up anyway. We did him with 9 chars a year or two ago and the clerics were running on fumes by the end of it, i think.

    I finally got around to updating the OP for the first time since April, 2017. I adjusted the existing mobs' tiers and added some new tiers and mobs. The new content is mostly based on Rimi's post. I didn't think very hard about the tiers -- what's up now is a rough draft. Please let me know which mobs should be moved up or down, which mobs should be added, etc.

    were the only potential ones I saw missing.

    and maybe the Escort the Gnome event.

    Everything else looks good to me

    1-Group:

    Ring War
    PoSky Crawl (I am curious to see how far you could get 1 group. A well balanced group I wouldn't be shocked if you could get to island 7, though the Bees would be rough)
    VP Dragons (I am guessing maybe a Tank + Cleric + Bard + 3 Wizard group could maybe out DPS their regen?)
    Zlandicar (He hasn't been trio'd yet right?)
    Klandicar (above?)
    Velketor
    Dozekar*
    Innoruuk
    Statue*
    Lcea Katta
    AC Burrowers* (I'm sure its been done before on the server many times)
    Rumblecrush (I already did this one with Miyamoto a year or so ago)

    Ooh, good call on VP dragons; those should be groupable these days. Zlandicar has been trio'd a number of ways. The easiest, I think, is tank/clr/dru (healers range the rampage, DS does most of the damage). I've also done tank/clr/mage: pet tanks rampage and the mage heals the pet. A shammy with a tash stick might be able to land slow, which could open up some more trios. Honestly, the hardest thing about Zlandicar is catching him up :p

    I don't know if anyone has trio'd Klandicar but it seems very doable.

    I'm so confused by this post. Strong and I boxed Zlandi all the time on Al'Kabor. I don't remember there being a rampage. Maybe he was such a wuss that I never noticed I was on the rampage, or maybe I just have a bad memory.

    I do remember slow being a pita. Even at 65 I would always equip the slow stick from Chardok, and we would use a tash weapon. I also remember the first time we killed him that we had such low dps that he ran away and gated back (possibly twice) before we were finally able to kill him.

    His ramp is pretty weak even unslowed at lvl 60 so id imagine at 65 and potentially slowed it could easily be unnoticed. He does run here too but not until like 2% or so but id imagine he runs closer to 10% if lvl 65

    I think zooks pioneered the 3-box fear clear years ago while hunting for a pair of strings. 3-box AE is always an accomplishment imo because there's so much that can go wrong. But yes it is gloriously faster than how long it takes a bard to solo clear.


    Fox, that escort the gnome quest is quite an achievement! How many mobs did you have to deal with simultaneously? How'd you keep up DPS?

    I bet Sontalak and most of ntov is groupable.
