    Please someone tell me how to kill this thing to get thru this part of the quest.

    It pretty much insta kills me. Asked for help on in game chat and no one seems to know
    what I am talking about. Frarc?? following your wonderful walkthrough.

    My pure mage started the quest and would like her to finish it. I know I cant solo the end boss, but wanted to get the "keys" on my own and be ready when I can find a group to do the end boss.

    What shard? Maybe a high SDI suit and a dragon slayer to kill it solo on a pure mage, but be prepared for lots of healing.

    On test center I killed it with a disco bard and evs
    This evening I've killed it with a mystic casting rising collosus and lots and lots of invis - I also did my best to stay near the slope to the next level so I could keep out of its way!

    Thanks for the replies. After many more deaths I thought what have I got to lose, and threw on provo since the ancient and the obsidian were now double teaming me.

    To my complete shock, they provo'd on the 3rd try! I just assumed the obsidian would not be provokable (cant remember the last time any event type monster was) so didn't try it at first.

    Once provo'd they were easily dispatched.

    With Collosus its not to hard but as you can see for the report i fought it in a melee combat. And Frarc is a 100% pure warrior, only used a reptile slayer sword (self made) . 73 all resist suit full plate/dragon armor. I just used my old fashion tactic and whack it and keep healing myself. When he used his firebreath i backed off several tiles and healed up again.(And repeat) It was not easy but it can be done. :)


    All the monsters i killed in a melee combat and against some monsters that was not a easy task. :)


    But i like a challenge. :)

    Indeed it was not. The Djinn and the ship were the worst parts for me, death-wise. I did it all on a tamer/mage, using various pets - a Greater Dragon for the combat parts (except the Ice Wyrm), a Nightmare for the running around (who was also used to solo the Instructor, with a moderate amount of difficulty.)

    The worst part of the Djinn was him spawning Paragon Efreets. That was...hell, to say the least. The ship, I kept having to deal with the Lich spawn while in the southern rooms. They're not necessarily a problem, but when you're in a confined space without pets, can't cast with them breathing down your neck, and have been affected by level 5 poison you're trying to cure...

    Mercutio and the Brigangs took a bit of effort, but I got the idea to use a poison field about halfway through Merc's health bar, because the Brigand spawn was annoying me to no end. That sped things up a bit, since they can't cure themselves, but the Brigands kept going aggro on me.

    I didn't have much trouble with the Obsidian because it became stuck! So I used EVs as meat shields and stepped into range with my dragon slayer spellbook for direct target damage. I also isolated the thing, though, so I didn't have any other targets to worry about.

    I found my slayer weapon set with whirlwind special move very handy in some situtations. :)
