King Zalak - Help with those Patriarchs! : EverQuest 2 Premium Discussions

So your raid force is trying to take out King Zalak, and is failing after he's been "beefed up"? I bet it's due to those nasty Patriarchs that come to his aid.

Since the instance has been changed, when the Patriarchs reach King Zalak, they heal him (for A LOT), and also explode for a zone-wide AOE for 1500+ damage.

So, here's an easy way to beat those Patriarchs! To pull this off, you will need 3 'non-valuable' raid members (not a main tank, healer, or power battery). These members will need a ranged pull, such as a bow or a spell. They will be Suicide Helpers, so they cannot mind some debt. You raid force WILL get some debt as well, but IMHO, it's worth it!

After engaging the King, 3 Patriarchs spawn and run towards the King. 3 more spawn every 1.5mins or so.

While your main raid force is taking on Zalak and his cohorts, have your 3 Suicide Helpers remove all armor to avoid repair costs and to quicken their death.

When the patriarchs spawn (they come from different huts around the zone), have each of your 3 Suicide Helpers aggro 1 each, and let the Helpers die.

After the Helper dies, the Patriarch is reset (to non-aggro), and runs wanders around the zone, and does not help Zalak.

At this point, your helper should revive in the zone, and return, ready for the next patriarch.

Rinse and repeat until you've beaten Zalak!

I have no idea how long this has been in effect, and no idea if/when they will change this, so if you can get your guild or raiding partners into this raid, use this asap :)

For those that don't know, King Zalak is a Group x4 instanced zone that you enter from the Commonlands in Zarvonn's Tower.

Well this may work for about 4.5 min, because once there are 9 patriarchs in the zone, Zalak starts to do other fun stuff. With any half descent raid you should be able to knock down Zalak and all his patriarch helpers in under 5 min anyways. Save the debt and the 'nobility of dying heroicly for a cause' and just beat him down fast. (Hint: Patriarch group with 50SK, 50Monk, 50Warlock, 50Wizard, 50Ranger, and 44Templar took down all three pats, while the rest of the raid worked on Zalak, with enuf time to get in a few whacks on Z befrore the next wave of pats came and we only faced 3 waves of pats)

Really unnecessary to have people "suicide" for this zone, it's to easy to kill the patriarchs as they come in with 4-5 people while the remiander of the raid force beats fown Zalak.

Hey, it was just a suggestion for those that couldn't beat him the legit way :) For you guys it may not be necessary, but for those that come close, it could be the strategy that tips them over into phat loot ;)

We pulled Zalek deep into the canyon to NW of his starting point. Then we had two tanks and a healer deal with the patriarchs by intercepting them before they got close enough to heal Zalek. We didn't have any deaths.
