We need some testing done for NPC difficulty for T11. We have set up scripting in Dragon Necropolis (necropolis) that allows players to spawn groups of NPC's with varied difficulty (HP's/Damage), and need people who've completed at least T10 to give some feedback.

Each spawn will consist of 4 NPC's, which can be pulled individually as needed. We need to know for the different levels, how many you could handle at once, how long (on average) it took to kill them, how many characters you had in the fight, and any other input you'd like to add. To access the available commands, /say T11 Test   while in Dragon Necropolis. NPC's spawn right near zone in.

This is critical to the rollout of T11, so the more the merrier (make instances).

24 Toons.  All but 3 with UW12.  Main fully everything.  6 rogues with UW12.5.  3 more rogues with UW12.  3 Clerics, 4 Pallys, 2 Mages, 1 Ranger, Chanter, Shaman, Monk, Warrior

ONE:  Pulled 1 mob.  No special abilities.  50 seconds.
ONE:  Pulled 2 mobs.  Used Riposte on pull.  Used Vie until first mob was dead then killed the other mob.  1 Min 50 Secs
ONE:  Pulled 3 mobs.  Used Riposte on pull.  Used Vie.  Lasted 50 seconds till wipe.  Almost had one mob dead.
ONE:  Pulled 3 mobs.  Used Riposte on pull.  Used Vie.  Took 2 Mins 40 Secs to kill all three.

TWO:  Pulled 2 mobs.  Wiped in 30 Secs.
TWO:  Pulled 1 mob.  Used Riposte on pull.  Used Vie.  Took 2 Mins 2 Secs to kill the mob.

THREE:  Pulled 1 mob.  Used Riposte on pull.  Used Vie.  Wiped after 2 Mins and 35 Secs.  Would have wiped sooner but used DI twice during the fight.

UPDATE 1/30/2024:
TWO:  Pulled 2 mobs.  Used Riposte on pull.  Used Vie throughout pretty much.  Got the first mob down to about 30%.  Tank's HP hadn't dropped below 50% much when all of the sudden he was down.  FAILED at 3 Min 30 Secs.
TWO:  Pulled 1 mob.  Same as above.  Took 4 Mins and 30 Secs to kill the one mob.

First of all, thank you all for testing for us. I know it's not necessarily exiting, but it's key to pushing the next tier. The more testing we get done, the faster the tier will be released.

MINOR UPDATES:

We've removed most of the NPCs for now. You have access to type "one" and "two". Those are the two NPCs that we want tested for now. It's the same as previously. We want information on their damage, how many you can handle and how long it takes to kill them.

Additionally, the NPCs now have a chance to be spell casters, so make sure you try to fight some of those. They should appear randomly among the spawned NPC's. If you want to test a spell caster and you pull a mob that isn't doing that after doing some damage to it, you can just say "repop" and test again. No need to go through the entire fight when looking for one.

Spawn One/A - Single mob = 2 mins 4s did not need to use cleric druid or shaman heal hotkey 2 paladin in main group was enough
                       Two mobs = 3 mins 43s did not need to use heal hotkey once 2nd war had aggro on one of them 2nd mob just died with 27% HP left no idea why
                       Three mobs = Wiped 4 times i suck at getting my 2nd tank  to aggro one fast enough
                       1 melee plus 1 caster = Wipe

Spawn Two/B - Single mob = 6 mins 7s had to use heal hotkey after every mob combat round
                       Two mobs = Wipe

Didn't have too much time to test - 33
3 war 7 rogue 1 wiz 3 zerk 1 monk 1 druid 1 shm 6 pal 3 cleric 1 mage 1 enchanter 1 sk 1 necro 1 bard 1 bst 1rng

About half the dps in uw12/uc4 equivalent, didn't really use cooldowns

Test A mobs ~2min per
frostbite drain hurts a lot.

Was able to handle 2 just fine until my stonewalls faded for some reason and my warrior got deleted (forgot to log this pull)

Test B ~6min
wasn't watching closely on 2nd pull of test b, got killed by 9x 1,469,993 + 208633 in 1 round

24 toons

one/Test A - 2 mins

Was going to try for 2 / Test As but somehow I had 3 Test As up... and I lasted 20s. Raid wipe and I zoned back in.. rebuffed and was trying to repop the zone.... but I started to go LD on all toons and now I can't log them back in unless I do the character move to nexus on all 24. I guess I crashed the zone, possibly the server but definitely my desire to continue testing tonight. Will try more testing later this week/weekend.

MINOR UPDATES:

I've added a few more dummies for you to test. The primary focus for now should be testing of 'one', 'three' and 'four', which relates to NPC: Test A, C and D.

Also, as noted, remember to say 'repop', not 'repop instance'.

Thanks!

                       Two mobs =  4 mins 25s  One of the mobs was a caster went down to 8% when the caster used what looked like a short duration stun with a small knockback both mobs were on main tank the whole fight i used riposte at the start and could not get 2nd war to gain aggro on one after that.
                       Three mobs = 7 mins 2 melee 1 caster 2nd tank almost went down a few times with just the caster on him as i do not  have a cleric to heal that one
                       Four mobs = wipe

Spawn Three/C - Single mob = 1 min 55s Saw HP go to 30% a few times from a single mob combat round
                         Two mobs = 4 mins 3s 2nd tank went down tanking one not sure why then saw main tank HP go low often with 2 mobs

My review

army of 36 all UW12. Most have Tunare bp and all have VP belt and casters. All have UC4 and Royal Brushed Kote. Pally and MT have UE. Using regular cleric/druid/shaman AoE heals.

Test A = 1 min 30 sec = 1 min 50 sec (with no nukes from casters)
Test B = 2 min into 60% wipe

Cleric can't keep up with the dmg dealt. Brought MT down to 38% per sec.
MT full buffed hp is 19,030,684
