Warhammer Online: Solo Nerx Gutslime (Hero) for Easy Loot (healers only)

Located in Mount Bloodhorn there is a Hero mob named Nerx Gutslime. He is in a cave along the eastern side of the zone 53500 , 44500 near a large Dwarf statue. There is a path to the left of the dwarf that leads up to a gap you need to jump to the next platform. You will see a log ramp that you run up and the cave is right to the left.

The great thing about this hero is that he is a shaman and does not melee, he only uses ranged attacks as long as you stay about 30 yards from him. When fighting him at range the only thing you need to worry about is a pitiful dot he puts on you that ticks for 300 damage every 3 seconds for 9 seconds, so healing through it is not a problem at all.

It takes about 20-30 min to dps him down depending on the healers spec but the loot he drops is well worth the time invested.

The items are pretty damn good so killing him for an upgrade is an option or if you make talismans this can be a good way to make some gold. So far from my experience the items can be salvaged into uncommon 175 fragments and also have a chance to be salvaged into a 200 rare fragment.

Nerx like most Lair Heroes has a 12 hour respawn timer so depending on when you kill him there is a chance for 2 kills per day. He also drops up to 2 weapons at a time, for me it seemed that he dropped 2 weapons about 75% of the time.

This can easily be done with multiple casters along with one healer and you can duo Nerx with a healer and a melee class as long as the healer takes him down about 15% before the melee jumps in. Its also a good idea for the melee class to get behind Nerx which will keep you from taking any damage from the dot because it has a cone radius.

That's about it hope this helps someone.
