    I think you have to be all the way in the back of the labrynth, and kill certain minotaurs.

    It takes a lot of repeated killing in order to summon Meraktus. I recommend a large group. Last time we summoned Meraktus we had around 15+ people killing minotaur until they respawned only a few at a time. It takes quite a while before getting to the point of spawning Meraktus (1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes with the group we had).

    You will get messages on your screen when you have made some progress. Speed and time may play a factor if you aren't getting a different message after repeated killing. Hopefully this helps.

    I have killed every single mino, up to the pyre and back for the past two hours non stop and have not seen one message. What am I doing wrong?

    Yepp, all the way in the back past Reptalons and Pyre. It can be done with 2 tamers fairly easy tho. Only took about 30-35 mins on our first attempt.

    i believe ya gotta be pretty close to the temple at the end to hear the message. when we'd do it we would keep someone in there relaying the progress.

    YES! (if you ever want to do the spawn of course)

    Unless you are trying to do damage on him from mage spells, then NO. Have found it does not give any bump at all then.

    So you only need to kill the ones in the courtyard (through the metal gate) ?

    You have to kill everything from just beyond the Pyre spawn point (actually about the corner of the building past Pyre) all the way to the enclosed courtyard (including inside the courtyard) And the messages are the only way of tracking your progress, as long as you get the message while killing them you in the right area.

    It has been a while since I last did the Meraktus spawn but my recallection is of poor loot, at least not worth the time and effort it takes to get it done.

    Did they change it to make it more worth the effort ?

    It doesn't matter where you kill the Minotaurs however you can only hear the messages if your in the back near the temple/courtyard and the road that leads to it where there are the two booby traps.

    If you've been at it for two hours your not killing them fast enough.

    I've cleared out the back many times where I had to go back to the entrance because that's where they all spawned.

    Meraktus Protection Talisman>Meraktus Killer.

    Tormented Protections comes in handy too.:D

    Tormented Minotaur Statuette is a beauty!
