    So the event is taking place on my shard tonight. Any recommendations on what kind of character I should bring to the fight? Sampire, Tamer, Mage, Spellweaver? Open to any input from those of you who have already experienced this event.

    Is he sussepable to a slayer. Generaly either a damage capped AI thrower with mana leach or if he has a low fire or cold a SDI stacked mage in wraith from with weaving for the WOD to put out beast damage.

    One of Escaflowne's pics in this thread - Britannia Vs Exodus | Stratics Forums - shows the lore results on Exodus, so might give a clue for damage types. Otherwise, I can't say... my archer and mage both landed hits but neither qualified for a scroll drop. Be ready to take a fair bit of 'area damage' from him though, even if you stay out of melee, so keep a very close watch on your health bars.

    i attended with my archer on chessy & managed to get a scroll. there were quite a few tamers in attendance and their greater dragons were a godsend by keeping the Exodus targeting the pets. the Exodus spammed 'mana drain' and 'weaken' area spells so keep that in mind when choosing your char.

    I suggest a Tamer with a GD as well - even better if the tamer is also provo bard using invigorate to help keep self and dragon alive.

    I used a Pure Melee fighter on Drachenfels But i used a Archer/swordswoman on Napa Valley. Something with range is good idea. Have to run a lot anyway. ;)

    When is the answer not "Bring a tamer with a GD"?

    I took my sampire on Chesy and jousted which was fun and I did get a scroll but there was a ton of run off. I really liked going at it with what was essentially a nonhealing dexxer.
