This is on a classic server: Since my last post we have gone to try Megaladon once again. This time we only brought 2 FG's. We still had the two icers. We could only get him down 84%, he was much harder to hit and he hemoraged and AEO mezzed quite frequently. Not sure if certain stlyes make him spazz but, if that is not the case, it appears that he has been made a little tougher to kill. So for now I'll retract my I high RR group theory, and say stick with with 3 FG's for this guy.

We took 3 fg's cuz no one knew exactly how rough he was or not. We had two Tanks groups and one group with casters and 2 ice wizzies.

Tank train seems to do well inflicting damage on him, Theurgs were able to cast pets on him, but he killed them rather quickly.

Our tactic was to put all the clerics out of range in one group woth the two ice wizzies in the middle of them. When he spawned all his yellow con sharks (they go straight for the healers) we had the iceers light them up, it worked perfecrtly. Plus he didn't hemorhage and spawn those sharks until just before his death.

Periodically throughout the fight didn't notice what health % he was at, he did AEO mez.

With 3 fg's he wento down in less than five minutes. He dropped the ring which is prolly the hottest item to get, he also dropped the bracer and nice cloak that isn't on the list (I'll send in stats if I can get the info rom who got it)

COuld probably kill him with 2 fg's groups or maybe even one well balanced and high RR group though.

Thought we'd give this mob a bash with our alliance so we got around 3-4 full groups for him. Well initially we couldn't find him, he wasn't in his place designated 'lair' in the Irish sea, he actually swims all about the zone and he is very fast! We swam south about a bit to around 30k, 43k a place where he had been seen before and waited there with the zerg, this is how we managed to find him.

This mob was very easy until 60%, the aoe stuns weren't too much of a problem (set determination fields, spread out), but at around 60% a message started to go out XXX starts to hemorage uncontrollably into the surrounding waters!
At this point the people recieving the messages started to take huge amounts of damage, and lots of yellow con sharks popped, and went straight onto the healers.

Moral of the story... Take some AoE class to take care of those yellow sharks, also I think taking one cleric designated healing and one cleric designated cure poison would help also as I am sure the "Hemorage" message was followed by an AoE poison (to be confirmed).

This should be a easy mob, if you take the correct classes :)

Tried with my kobi warior and shambot toa'ed out nicely to see what it was like.

upon agro he did a broadcast message which said sumtin like mega dashes at person xxx and his wake stuns them. this was an aoe stun which hit bot toons unfortunatly :) for like 7s or so.

at this point mega proceeded to hit both toons at same time for 800 600 then a whoppin 1200. got like 1 heal off then died, and havent went back yet.
couple groups

Probably an encounter equivalent to Kraken or Leviathan. So probably doable by a standard farming team (Necro Cleric Cleric for Alb, Ment Chanter Druid Druid or multiple Animists and Druids for Hib), but other than that would probably be a couple groups or 1 balanced, high RR/ML group.
