Default lvl 20-29 Raid Bosses, and lvl 30-39 Raid Bosses.

Ive spent the last 2 days running Raid Boss groups. Great exp, great fun, loved every minute of it. I do however, have a few questions that i cant seem to find the answers to.

What is the respawn time on a raid boss? Does it differ from boss to boss?

On some of the lvl 30 bosses, its obvious that you need 2 or more groups to kill it (Queen Stakato, Orc boss @ orc barracks etc.) How does the exp and drops work with more then 1 group on a boss? Is there a way to coordinate more then 1 group in such a way?

Thanks for the help.

actually you dont need 2 groups to do those bosses. you need higher damage output. try 2 things: FULL nuker group with excepetion of tank and healer all people in group 4-5 levels higher than the boss. dead in minutes everytime.

2) get an out of party buffer of high level. bigger badder buffs mean better faster damage. alst use Zerk on the raid boss to reduce its defences. Zerk is the only debuff you can cast safely on any mob without drawing aggro.

there is only one boss i know of in the game that needs a 2nd and 3rd group to kill it. thats the ant queen.

btw, respawn time on most bosses is 8 hrs afaik.

some of the raid bosses have 2x hp that's the reason why they are harder to kill

one nuker group can take out the ant queen with the proper high level support.

how? use a group of necros and gursegloom it? or a summoner to summon cubic on all?

the healer ants must be moved away from the queen and they resist hate and dont fight back when you hit them. they heal each other with group heals faster than you can damage them. one team willing to take a death for the raid is what it takes to lure the healer ants away by beating on the larvae behind the queen. only then is the queen vulnerable.

but the queen ant is only lvl 40. her minions are lvl 29. hitting them with 70+ nukers makes the nukers go silenced, no? if so, youd need a total of 10 70+ nukers to take out a lvl 40 boss.



no ty. i can take her with a two full lv 40 groups and we love the exp.

The ant queen is not a raid boss.

You don't get silenced or petrified if you're not in her level range. It does, however, affect the drops if you outdamage the lowbies.

The ant queen also requires strategy, you just cant go in there and brute force her ugly butt

This is bad advice if you want drops from a raid boss. If the person doing the most damage is 3 or more levels higher than the boss, then the drops will be nerfed. If the boss is green to you, then you must back off on your damage.

For our raids, if we have one or two nukers who are to high a level, then they dont use sps. More than that, and the boss is probably too low for us.
