Aspect of the Long-Toothed
Regional Boss – Solomon Island Lair
The Aspect of the Long-Toothed is the Regional Boss for the Solomon Island lairs. Summoning this boss requires patterns from each of the bosses associated with the three Solomon Island lairs. As with all lair content, the Aspect was re-worked as part of the 1.2 content update, Digging Deeper. The Aspect is now tuned to require a full group of elite (QL10 Blue) geared players.
The Aspect of the Long-Toothed is summoned in the Blue Mountain lair. You can find his summoning ring on the NE side of the lair up a long set of concrete stairs. His ring is on the floor before the topmost floor. The Aspect of the Long-Toothed summoning area is locked to a 5-person encounter. Any additional players in the area will be kicked out of the area upon summoning. There is a window which you can use to observe the fight from the outside.
The Aspect of the Long-Toothed is a guardian mob and features mechanics common to Guardian wolves. He breathes a cone filth attack (which can be impaired) and also drops impair puddles that remain throughout the fight. The damage is relatively low in this fight, simply move him around to stay out of the filth puddles.
The Aspect of the Long-Toothed has a stacked buff providing him a physical ward which requires critical hits to remove. Slot some critical rating and you’ll whittle it down quickly.
It is possible that there is an agro wipe in this fight. He cast the ability “Hounded” and then tracked one of our players for quite a while. Looking at the video (see below), there is a debuff on this player throughout the agro loss. When the debuff dropped, agro was reacquired quickly. This was not a DPS based agro loss.
Loot from the Aspect of the Long-Toothed typically involves:
- A Sack of Teeth (open this to recover some of your summoning patterns)
- Purple talisman and glyphs (10.0, can’t be upgraded)
- Purple signets (this is the reason you are doing lairs)
- World boss summoning pattern – Confirmed Head
