    Heh, if I could somehow do the Sisters event solo, I'd stand a chance of getting some others to come help me clear the whole of Demi -- people just LOATHE that event.

    I tried to solo RZtW in Tactics last night, owned him up until the point where he warps to the pit. Tried to float down and he ported me to Kedge Keep told me he wont fall for my tricks. What's up with that?

    That sounds sort of like his old mechanic where he would port everyone out if there weren't enough people in the pit when he was engaged. This was changed a while ago, however, so it might be a bug of some sort.

    I believe you got ported if you were not in the original raid that attacked pre-port. Maybe form a raid?

    They changed him to require 12 people or so to engage.

    That's very strange then. I solo'd him a few months ago and wasn't ported at all.

    Did you Imitate death or FD? That might have wiped his aggro so he thought you were a new raid..... Though I think we used to AE teleport when he warped so might be something different.

    Hah, I just did today as well! Definitely fun. Jelvan was the toughest one for me. Was sketchy waiting on a couple mend refreshes, but overall it was pretty easy. It's craziness to me. My guild(old defunct guild - Nameless Order) was one of the very small handful who killed OMM during the actual expansion and it took us over 100 attempts! To come in and kill him with nothing but fists and mend was a blast.

    Shield of the Immaculate is great for Mark of Death as well. Only one cast cures it.

    I couldn't find the shield in bazaar so I opted for potions.

    Also was nice to use respite after mask click, otherwise it would take much longer!

    I have a macro for Respite. ID(drop aggro), use Respite, stand back up.

    /alt activate 420
    /pause 2
    /disc Respite Rk. II
    /stand

    Every time they are both up and I need to, I click it. Works great during fights. Takes you out for a split second and drops respite on you.

    There's some mobs you just can't solo.... for instance, forget her name, but she charms you regularly which keeps you alive, but makes it impossible to beat her down.

    Why click the mask period? Just dispell the buff he gets after an emote.

    IDing or fding in general while soloing can mess up your extended target window. I used to solo vish weekly, and until I got it to where I could do it while I surfed porn I had to fd some. Sometimes taking vish completely off my extnded target making things difficult ;p

    Yeah, I really noticed that bug during my Anguish run today. Hadn't noticed it previously.

    when you click the mask it debuffs him and he goes inert and stops attacking, makes the fight easier

    The last time I solo'd OMM I resisted his gaze every time he cast it.

    The fight was very lackluster.

    yeah he doesn't get the buff for some reason and doesn't wander back to the middle in range of the adds if you don't bother with the mask

    The first time I solo'd him he didn't even path back during the riftseeker part. I'm not talking about out dpsing before getting ported to ture, I mean he truly never left the doorway I had him in and when I killed him the riftseekers were still up lol.

    I have screenshots still I believe.

    When I solo'd him I did it at his spawn point. Not sure if this makes any difference but I found the fight to be a pushover with the mask. Since I got back I've done him 4 other times without the mask with 2-3 others and it definately took longer. I don't have my bp clicky yet as I still need more faction for it.

    I fought him for about 70% at his spawn point, then he did that knockback thing and it aggro'd one of the charmable mobs, and things got a bit hairy. Got the add killed and then started pulling him to door. I was clicking mask, but next time will try without clicking and just use Fiercehand chest to dispell him.

    Weird, I had some trouble with OMM last time I tried, but that was awhile ago. I'll have to give it a go again sometime soon.

    I didn't get hit with knockback once. Maybe because I was using the mask click?

    I only got hit by it twice and I was clicking mask as well. Only missed click once and that was by the door and didn't get knocked back then. It's a weird knockback. You get knocked back and stunned and he keeps attacking from range. When stun wears off, he summons you back. When he summoned me back, the add came.

    Just took out Anguish again yesterday, was a lot of fun. Gave away 5 epic orbs and a bp

    OMM seemed easier this time, probably because I had my Pure Metal Power source and boosted AC.

    I didn't get the stun knockback at all this go, and unfortunately still no OH clicky (

    OMM fight took about 20 min.

    Incidentally, regarding CoA you don't appear to need 6 people online to request it anymore: I created a group with myself and level 70+ alts from 2 box accounts, and was able to request it fine, although the DZ only had the 3 on-line ones listed. Cleared pretty much everything up to the hallway outside Hanvar's room then had to go do other stuff :/

    A lvl 90 with 750 resists has a 100% chance to resist Mata Muram's Gaze, and he doesn't power up if it's resisted.
    Anything less than lvl 90 or 750 MR, and it has a chance to hit you.

    I used the resist formula a dev posted here:

    Yes, I remember having the discussion about changing the resist mechanism way back in the TSS beta and seeing the "modified resist > 200 = complete resist" thing

    Nevertheless, using the mask click might be worthwhile in that it causes the effect to hit OMM and causes him to reset aggro, which would allow the use of Respite if low on Endurance.

    Doesnt just reset aggro. He goes completely inactive but you can still dps. Plus it debuffs him.

    When we used to kill him as a raid at the door, he would stop attacking and walk back to the middle, I guess the inactive timer runs even if he's at the middle.

    Also, I'm not 100% sure there aren't other hidden modifiers in there (like the minimum resist chance) -- for example when I did the Jelvan event the other day I killed 1 Tormentor at a time rather than balancing, and I got hit by a lot of their effects. Not fatal but fairly rough.

    Yeah, he behaves the same fighting in middle, minus the walking.

    No point to balancing Jelvan, all the times ive done it I just focus on one at a time, never had problems. Not worth the hassle to balance.

    Raidloot.com's spell parser confirms there's a max resist chance on that spell:

    http://www.raidloot.com/Spells.aspx?id=5680

    [5680] Gaze of Anguish
    Target: Hatelist
    Range: 100
    Resist: Cold -475, Max: 75%
    Casting: 0s, Recast: 45s
    Duration: 30s (5 ticks)
    Dispellable: No
    1: Decrease Current HP by 4000
    2: Decrease Current HP by 300 per tick
    3: Decrease Current Mana by 250 per tick
    4: Increase Disease Counter by 30
    Text: You feel an icy stare pierce your body.

    -- so, since there's a +50 modifier from being 10 levels higher than OMM's level 80, resists higher than 575 wouldn't help anyway -- you're going to get hit by 1 gaze in 4 (in average).

    Yeah I've never bothered balancing, I just burn them all to the ground. Once one is dead there's almost no threat left. Having 3 they do a little bit of hurt.

    Gaze of Anguish != Mata Muram's Gaze (which doesn't have a max resist rate)
