    So I have yet to take on Corgul and am going to give him a try soon. From what I've read I should clean up the other spawn first. I'm thinking radiant scimitar to whirlwind groups of them, I'm wondering if they have the same tainted life force as Corgul and if they have a slayer that works on them?
    For Corgul I'm going to make a new weapon since I can't use HLL. I use longswords with 190+ stam and 35 ssi on suit, so far I'm looking at:
    25 di
    87 hml
    50 hsl
    Repond Slayer
    I'm deciding between hla or reforging either hit fatigue or hit mana drain. Anyone have any insight into which might be most effective? I'm leaning towards hla to get hit less since I run 120 resist which should take the edge off of the necro spells.

    I used HLA for mine. I also had hit area for the spawn, they don't have the same tainted life.

    Hmm, it appears Corgul is not Repond. I sat there smacking him for a while before deciding it was going to take too damn long and I should try with a different character.

    So Corgul has no slayer I guess?

    Stratics and UO guide list him as repond.
    But he also has very high resists, with the lowest one being around 80. You wouldn't notice the slayer having effect without AI in this case, sadly.

    @Obsidian said the same thing in a conversation today.
    I run with a longsword, 120 swords/tactics/anatomy/etc, 100% di from items, 150 str, this puts me effectively at the damage increase cap. I can chain AI, which using a super slayer usually gets me an average of 130ish damage (Just over 200 on average with a lesser slayer).
    So a few days ago, based on UOguide/Stratics I imbued up a special longsword with Repond slayer since the one I usually use has HLL on it. I was armor ignoring Corgul for only about 60 damage per hit, so I can confirm based on personal experience several days ago that Corgul is most definitely NOT Repond. Per Logrus' suggestion I'm going to give Undead a try next. : )

    I don't think I used a slayer and relied on the talisman.

    When you hit something and it takes slayer damage a round white flash appears indicating such.

    one question regading corgul,
    i tried it with sampire it was a disaster. the spawn was no problem (except the soul ghost whatever) i assume the vampiric life drain is not working at corgul,

    which template are u running for him? Pure Paladin with healing?

    do we know now if and which slayer is to be used?

    I have been fighting him with cross healer fighters and a bard running provo for support and discord. He has corrupted aura, so life leech and vampire form hurts you instead of leeching life back.
    He seems to be repond slayer, but he also seems to take less damage than normal. Without a slayer and with EoO at 120 chiv, 120 tactics, 120 anat and 100 DI I was doing AIs for 80 damage.
    With a slayer and EoO, 120 tactics and 20 anat from JOAT I was doing 120 to 130 with each AI.

    At Legends, I could never get over 140~150 with AI, even with 100% honor from bushido, 86% from 120 Chiv EoO, 15% from consecrate weapon and 15% from 4x120 bard provocation song, 120 tactics, 120 anat and 100 DI.

    I've gotten 180-200 damage AIs on Corgul with a Repond Soul Glaive on my Thrower. I haven't done Corgul in a few months though.

    I have never tried to fight corgul, whats the best way to locate the island I assume by boat? Can you mark a rune there or have to hunt for this island every time you want to fight Corgul? Is the island in a small general area of the UO map in trammel? Thank you.

    The island can be accessed in Tram or Fel, you drop a treasure map and a world map on the alter outside of Covetous and it gives you a map to the island that's got a timer on it. Then you just sail to the location on the map in one of the new boats. Like whiterabbit said there's no marking/gate travel.

    It's a good monster for Melee Archer. I use WW for spawn then use a Composite Bow for Corgul. But I prefer when someone else attract the spawn so I can use WW safely. Two players - disco archer + melee archer - do the best.

    I was doing 198 armor ignore hits with bladed staff. The sucker would dismount me though. I figure I'll have to reforge a bow and start fighting him from a distance. While his posse was alive, I was only doing 1 hp damage armor ignore hits. So they protect him for lack of better terms. Must kill off spawn. I'm still tweaking my template around to make it the most effective. I'll keep working on it and post my findings here. If I had a bard backup, casting spell songs and disco, I wonder if I could have stood toe to toe. I can take on Slasher pretty easily, but his dismount is quickly countered.

    Did you used other ways to damage Corgul besides RC?

    i never struck.him.. i lured the last spawn.. he was there... killed the last two minions... ran up to where he should have been.. was gone
    .. checked the whole island .. nothing

    so i have to hit him before i kill the last spawn or he goes poof ? had at least 50 mins or so left on the map timer.....

    i have done it before on a tamer and before with a warrior in a group.. i was just playing around seeing how long RC with disco would take solo....
