I'm missing larvae blood, and globe from skelly and frog.
Let's camp the skellies next time in PoV, since they also drop lots of parchments.

this quest is only to get the key to access the dragons lair.. u then have to kill the dragon to get flagged for hoh access.. not an easy task.. hehe
only 1 person needs the key I believe...

There is an alternative way to get hoh access.. u have to complete another quest.. don't have to link to it.. its in the post that zillia posted a while back with title.. "worth keepting in mind"...

I solo the skeletons all the time.  I see the orb drop fairly often.  People also killing frogs there will let you loot the orb from them.  Lumii Crawler orb and the spider heart is all I need.  And the lumii crawler is a rare in the waste land area.  But I have seen it.  I should have looted it when I had the chance but at the time I didn't know what it was for.  The larvae heart is very common as well.

we did hoh door the other day and the lumii crawler spawned 2 times.. i know where he spawns so i can show u.. i got the orb and the brain from him.. the orb is for the key to the dragon.. and the brain is for the quest to access hoh without killing the dragon. brain drops rarely though

The brain has dropped every time we've killed the named crawler (apart from one time) no one knows what it's for so it usually rots :)

Good luck, youll need it.
I think you are under estimating this fight somewhat...

He quads for 1350 (so 5400 per round) and hits very fast. He 2 AE procs and a DD.
One is a 3k lure based ae that has simply the biggest range I have ever seen on an AE, and this place is open, there is nowhere to hide from the AE.
Second AE is a DoT (not sure for how much damage) and a slow. Tanks were argueing about how much the slow was, but the general consencus seems to be about 50%.

DD is a straight nuke but is again a proc, not a casted spell, not sure what resist its based on but it ripped up the tanks.
Standard melee for PoP boss mobs, flurry's often, enrages.
Has roughly the same HP as Yelinak I would guess from the time it takes to kill him, but thats just a guess based on time to kill.

Most of the casters there were reporting a lot of partial resists after full debuffs so is fairly resistant too.

A big problem is the open ground the fight takes place on and people tend to get spread out, clerics were reporting people going out of healing range.

There are 9 or 10 Crystal goloms all conning even to a lvl 65 who wake in pairs once the dragon is engaged and add throughout the fight at a steady rate.

For a rough comparison for what its worth, the Fennin BH regulaly farm all the warders in Sleepers tomb, all the new crusaders in Skyshrine, Lord Yelinak, Klandikar and sometimes Sontalak, all pretty much on the whole with no casualties apart from Sontalak who tends to eat a few people.
All of these are moss snakes when compared to this glass dragon.

For a test of firepower for this fight, try Sontalak or some names in North Temple of Veeshan.
If you beat Sont or some of the named NToV dragons fairly easy you can probably beat the glass dragon.

If you cant take Sont you dont have a hope in hell of killing the glass dragon in PoV as he is currently, unless he gets retuned.

Hope that helps, good luck

Actually, one AE that's both the 3k dd and a 45% slow in the same, disease curable, 16 counters. Magic based resist on a -150 resist adjust.. The other AE is a fear and a 700dd + 500dot (I think) but it's pretty weak in comparision. Also -150 resist adjust, magic based, but both easy to resist with buffed up resists

Golems are not even con to 65, they're 62 apart from the named one which is (I think) yellow to 65, but none of them are mezable

Anyways, friend put it best, Aerin isn't really a raid, it's more of a "oh shit, nuke". Very messy fight.

You just pump out as much damage as you can with all resists buffed to the max, the ae isnt hard to resist with a bard. But it's still very hard compared to tov/first brood dragons due to the whole chaos that ensues with the adds and all

Actually the Golems are mezzable, but only with the Enc Sleep spell.
The named Golems are probably not mezzable.

They're not, they're tagged unmezable, no mez spell will land
