Default Rallos Zek, first server to kill the Sleeper :)

As some of you may know during the good-o-days I started EQ on Rallos Zek, best PvP server and the most challenging. Where "No Drop" gear was HIGHLY valuable, and watching a guy quickly throwing his equiped gear into bags before dying to the hands of a PK was just the norm.

To everyones surprise Rallos Zek was the first server to take down the legendary Sleeper, and I was there (on my brothers character atleast lol). No he was not guilded to either of the 3 top guilds on the server (Ascdending Dawn, Wudan, Magus Imperialis Magicus) that with combind force of over 200+ players and roughly 4 hours later killed the sleeper. No he sneaked in by sending the mages a /tell when CoH's started. They didn't know he was unguilded and CoH'd him by accident. So we got front roll tickets to the best event in EQ history! He was also a delvl'd PK so he was lvl 54 and out of PvP range so they could not do anything about it. Oh and we got tons of hate messages lol. :P

We took tons and tons of screenshots, and I would like to share them with p99. It was truly an exciting experience, and hope you enjoy them.

But first here is a little backstory from the event... (http://www.mmocrunch.com/2007/12/04/...morpg-history/)

On November 15, 2003, on the Rallos Zek PvP server, the three top guilds (Ascending Dawn, Wudan, and Magus Imperialis Magicus) assembled over 180 players with the intent to wake and kill The Sleeper. This was in response to an attempt to wake The Sleeper by an Iksar monk named Stynkfyst, who partnered with the largest random-pk guild of the time. Having been a former member of uber-guild Ascending Dawn, he had the knowledge the random pk guild needed to wake The Sleeper. The top guilds did not assemble their forces until word of Stynkfyst’s intentions had spread, and it became clear that he intended to wake The Sleeper, forever preventing future guilds from farming the old loot table. Until this point, waking The Sleeper had not been seriously considered by any guilds, as it was believed that waking The Sleeper would make the offending guild’s players kill-on-sight to the other guilds of the server. After 3 hours and 15 minutes, at 26% health, Kerafyrm disappeared (despawned). The players talked with the EverQuest Game Masters, and there was a general consensus that a bug had caused the problem, although some suggested (backed by statements from one GM) that higher-ups at SOE had purposely despawned Kerafyrm, because it was not intended to be part of the story.

The following day, the players logged in to find that Kerafyrm was back in his “sleeping” state, ready to be triggered again. There was also an apology on the official EverQuest forums from SOE, explaining that they had stopped the encounter because they feared the players were engaging the boss in an unintended manner. Although annoyed (the players pointed out that the reasons SOE gave could not have occurred, and felt lied to), they attempted to battle Kerafyrm once again.

On November 17, 2003, after a nearly 3-hour battle, Kerafyrm was defeated. He had between 100 million and 400 million hit points, likely around 250 million (most EverQuest bosses have 2 million at most), was immune to all spells except wizard’s manaburn spell and Shadow Knight’s Harm Touch, possessed two death touch abilities (abilities that automatically killed players), and attacked players for 6999 damage per swing. By using the cleric’s epic weapon and other resurrection spells, the players were able to bring their dead characters back into the battle faster than Kerafyrm could kill them all.

Unfortunately, there was a bug at that particular time that did make it possible. No NPC in the game was regen'ing hitpoints while in combat. =|

Imagine trying to get the guilds of p99 to cooperate on killing the sleeper, when half of the people on this server don't know how to use "assist".

Agreed, but back then we didn't know custom UI's existed. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

The only good part of that bind rush was the amount of times Ornate died.
