    If you haven't noticed I made a new sticky up top. I made this one for open discussion on what everyone thinks of it. What should be added to it etc etc. Also to get information on what to put in the Harrower and Lord Oaks FAQ section. Please keep the fel fights out of this. Der be another thread already started for that. :)

    Re: Public Oaks & Harrower Dates & Times

    I'm feeling generous; so I'll assist here.

    Harrower:

    First Form: Do not use a HIT SPELL weapon (aka Lightning, Harm, Fireball, Magic Arrow) if you are not solo tanking the Harrower. When you do this; it makes the harrower change targets. This means, if dragons are tanking it; you will force the harrower to switch to other people/pets and cause a lot of problems.

    Dragons are your friends. They tank very well. Discordance is also very amazing. They have extremely high resist (70+ in every resist)

    Let a bushido/chiv dexxer honor it if possible. They will do mass amounts of damage.

    They have "NO" slayer. So, your best pvm weapon is your best bet (Or possible a slayer of whatever is around. Example: If its in destard, Reptile slayer, so you can quickly dispatch the dragons if they come around)

    If reds are around, please dont use hit area weapons/moves/spells. AKA: No whirlwind, bladeweaving, earthquakes, withers, etc. Not only does this flag people, but if you have a pet around; or they have pets, it can get extremely nasty, really quick. Not to mention some of the reds don't take well to being attacked :p

    Part 2: Tentacles

    If you are getting hit by the area effect, RUN AWAY!! Not for your benefit either. This area effect makes the tentacles ABSORB health. Meaning if someone is tanking the tentacles; you are basically healing it, helping none at all.

    Depending on who is running the harrower; someone will usually say how they are killing them. You can either mass EV them one at a time, A solo dexxer can rush it and kill them with heals and walls, A good necro with X-Heals can kill them with withers. There are many ways, most likely someone will guide you or do it for you. DRAGONS ARE NOT GOOD FOR THESE!! Disco is though.

    NO SLAYER FOR THESE!!

    Part 3: The True Harrower

    This form is the easiest. You can use any weapons (May change targets, but it is very weak compared to form 1). Just get a dragon or a dexxer on it to tank, and keep it healed. Thats it.

    Notes:
    Spellweavers CAN NOT WORD OF DEATH ANY FORMS!!

    None of the forms have slayers.

    The tentacles do not take ranged damage. Even with spells, you must be directly next to them.

    Oaks really isnt as hard as people make it out to be.

    Be sure, KILL SILVINA (sp?) FIRST!! Oaks is 10x harder if you do not kill her. Between her pixie throwing, its almost like he gets a resist buff when she is around. Drag them apart, and kill her before you even attempt to kill him.

    Same things apply as with the harrower if reds are around.
    (If reds are around, please dont use hit area weapons/moves/spells. AKA: No whirlwind, bladeweaving, earthquakes, withers, etc. Not only does this flag people, but if you have a pet around; or they have pets, it can get extremely nasty, really quick. Not to mention some of the reds don't take well to being attacked :p)

    The pixie swatter is amazing. It does 2x damage to Oaks, and does Oaks lowest resist damage (Fire). You do have to be careful though, because of the hit area if reds are around.

    Consecrate (sp?) weapon does nice damage here. Any pvm weapon works fine if you do not have a Pixie Swatter.


    Notes:
    Disco is nice on these; as are dragons/pets to tank.
    Spellweaving WORD OF DEATH DOES work on Oaks.
    INSURE THE SKULL IF YOU GET IT!!




    Hope that helps. May edit if need be :)
