Anyone know how many hp's they have?
If they are close to what the disturbed have, no way will I try to solo one.
I got jumped by some kind of caster mob, I think it was a corrupted, but not certain - I got frosted and then rooted - I evac'd quick and had about 20h left at the safe point, after about a 30 second fight.
If they can summon AND root AND have about 20k hp's I'm never gonna try and solo em!

Summon, root, dot, nuke, 20khp, but only melee in the 160's!

Hehe, "only" 160s. Like any druid will last long against that :p

lol... Try a hasted 286 hitting Angry rat.
A druid is fine so long as you can stay away and not get hit. The fact that Corrupted Elys summon is the nasty part.
Did anyone ever answer if Zelniks are animals and charmable in Umbral Plains? If so.. a level58+ druid could probably solo a Corrupted Elysian, so long as charm held on the Zelnik.
I have tons of fun with in PoD is soloing 55-56 level zombie guys (Withering Pusling?) with a rat pet... Of course if charm breaks it is a very painful experience, becuase the Pusling summons you back and both he and the rat hit you.
To solo a 55-56 level mob is mucho fun, and almost always suicide.

Some Zelniaks are charmable with CoK. But what do you do when it breaks charm? Then you'll have two mobs summoning your butt off =p
11-05-2002, 12:40 PM
I never said it was safe.. but.. What a rush =)
EDIT: But if the Zelnik is charmable it will not summon (Too low level).
11-05-2002, 12:58 PM
Wrong. The lowest level zelniaks in UP are the highest level charmable by CoK (53) and they summon.
Oh, and they're unsnareable.
11-05-2002, 12:59 PM
BTW, I've never been summoned by a pusling.

Why would you worry about a pet, get two druids...
You pull them corrupted... other druid throws some heals on you and you tank... it is easy to do.. Just run the Elder out of mana before both of you do and you got him dead.. He is pretty weak.

I and 2 other Druids took a couple of them down..
1. Get it ensnared before you start damaging it.
2. A rooted mob will not summon. So trick is, all 3 of you constantly keep it rooted. If root breaks, one of you will get a whooping for a few until you get out of melee range and the other 2 guys get root back on it. Solo, you have a slim chance to reroot without interupts before you get plastered.
3. All keep regen and Skin up, so you can survive a summon (see #1). Heal whoever just got summoned in case can reroot fast enough to stop another summon.
4. All 3 of you stack everything you can land and stay back out of range.
They drop some REALLY nice items, but they are more dangerous than regulars.

Are you sure about this?
I remember rooting the Lava Walker in BW once and he summoned the crap out of me as I tried to escape :mad:

Rooted mobs will summon you and proceed to beat the wee-wee out of you.
Maybe some mobs don't summon when rooted - but Netherbain Ravagers absolutely do. At least if rooted by me!
11-08-2002, 09:21 AM
I've never had a rootable summoning mob not summon me while he is rooted.
I duo a ton with a necro and have never seen a mob in the combination described.
If it summons, it will, regardless of it's movement. Only variable i've seen first hand is the delay, seems like some mobs summon every 8-10 secs, others it seems like 12+ seconds.

Summoning mobs are *most definately* not affected by root... not sure wtf that rumor came from.
11-11-2002, 09:25 AM
Must be Server related. ;)
Orrrr maybe cut me some slack and figure out it mayyyyyyy just be MOB related. Trust me, a LOT of mobs will NOT summon when rooted. Yeaaaa yeaaaa mob "X" will do it, but sorry I never rooted mob "X". So let me change that to a LOT of MOBS will not summon when rooted. These include the ones this topic is about, and others such as Moktors.
Root breaks, boom summon, and it ain't a "wtf" rumor, I have been playing longer than a week. I have seen a few things outside of Crushbone ;)

I have played in umbral, and been the main CCer with my pitiful root. And when the melee haven't been smart enough to decide to kill the corrupted elysian over the disturbed, I have had to root it, and yes they summon when rooted. The most certainly summon. Guardian wurms summon when rooted, btw :)

If a mob summons, it will summon rooted or not rooted. What roots change is that it determines who it will summon first.
- If it is rooted and at least one player is in melee range (and on the aggro list), it will summon the closest player.
- If it is rooted and nobody is in melee range, it will summon the player on top of the aggro list.
11-11-2002, 01:33 PM
I've been out of melee but high enough on the hate list to be summoned over meleers. try it out, not a hard feat for a druid to be hated ;)
11-11-2002, 10:56 PM
I have gotten summoned immediately after casting roots with several people meleeing (and root did not break). AFAIk root does not have any effect on summoning. BTW I accidentally rooted a corrupted add the other day and it summoned right away.
11-12-2002, 04:11 AM
Used to be that way before. Maybe they changed/broke it. It has been a while since I used that on raids.
11-13-2002, 06:15 AM
That is quite possible Ellen the Wise. ;)

I got summoned when I tried to solo Cazel (named epic sand giant in Oasis) on a whim one day. He was rooted, I never got near him. He summoned, I egressed :)

<blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr>So let me change that to a LOT of MOBS will not summon when rooted. These include the ones this topic is about, and others such as Moktors.[/quote]I've been summoned by a rooted Moktor before. We pulled whatever the named Moktor is and got an add. I had to keep the mob rooted while the rest of the group killed the named. The rooted Moktor would summon me every chance he got. I would just move asap and heal myself if he managed to hit me.
By the end of the battle, I was summoned probably 20 times by a rooted Moktor.

Yep same here... summoning has become a chain casting habit of most in UP now... rooted or not.

Maybe he was confused about rooting with a root that causes dmg vs one that doesnt cause dmg, /shrug.
Soloning a corrupted elysian is no problem if you prepared and keep your cool (and have reasonable gear). After you get him pulled to a nice spot, root/snare him, debuff him (sunder, fix, then disjunction - or equivalent), then stack on your damage shield as much as you can (some druids can self buff that over 70 now). While you're pulling and prepping, he'll empty his mana too, which allows you to easily start the next part with full health and almost full mana.
When you're all prepped, start nuking and backing out, once per summon (about 10 seconds?). He'll hit you one round each time, but it won't be bad. You can re-root after it breaks if you want, but after a while you realize that root really doesn't matter, and you can just kite him normally, just bearing in mind that the summon is coming and where you want to be headed (run for 3 seconds or so after summon, then nuke). After he's hit you a number of times, you'll want to heal instead of nuke between the next summons.
I did that a lot back when I was 60 and still had to use my 1k heal. With the stuff I have now, these guys would be so much the easier.
It's all about timing things right. I even managed to win with an two adds once, which was a real rush. Had to plan out how/where to run/root the adds so I didn't get hit too much.
Also for reference, corrupteds don't hit as hard as the normal ones. :)

I got clobbered when I tried pulling one around 58. The snare and root they cast can be killer if it lands, so radiant cure is probably your best friend in this.
I think I'll retry it :)
